As if having Meghan McCain and La Toya Jackson co-host “The View” during Elisabeth Hasselbeck‘s absence weren’t enough, Kate Gosselin will join Barbara, Sherri, Joy, and Whoopi at the Hot Topics table Sept. 14 and 15. While a little controversy never hurts (and usually helps), we can’t imagine what the reality star will bring to the table. We’re betting she’ll use it as another opportunity to convince the American people that we should be on her side. [The View] Keep reading »
As I entered my regular bagel joint this morning, I crossed paths with a dude wearing this “pimp inside” shirt on his way out. Shockingly, he didn’t even hold the door open for me! As if his T wasn’t lame enough! The good thing about lame slogan shirts like these is that they help a gal spot a total jerk a mile away. Maybe function really does dictate fashion. Get your gag finger ready, ladies, because here are the best of the worst shirts that will definitely blow a guy’s shot at getting laid!
Last night Kate Gosselin was on “Larry King Live” where she reminded us again why we should all be on her side and not her estranged husband’s. She admits (with a little hesitancy) that Jon is a good father and that there’s a lot they agree on when it comes to raising their children, but she let it be known there are decisions he’s making that she wouldn’t necessarily make herself. Hmm … like cavorting around with dates half her age and spending her children’s college fund on extravagant gifts like BMWs and porches for her summer flings, maybe? “I’m looking towards the future and the decisions of today that affect tomorrow … more so than he is,” Kate said diplomatically. Asked whether she feels single, Kate replied, “I am not yet divorced … officially.” “But how do you feel
?” Larry pressed. “I don’t know,” she replied honestly. She admits that she’s lonely, but far too busy to even think about dating right now. I guess that’s another thing she and Jon differ on. Clip above. Keep reading »
Famous lady author Candace Bushnell has cracked the whip against the term “cougar” in an op-ed published in the upcoming issue of More magazine. So what if the “Sex and the City” writer is 50 and her hubby (a ballet dancer … hot) is 10 years younger? Don’t call the lady a “cougar!” She wonders, rightfully so, why every time a woman breaks through some kind of uncharted territory they receive an annoying label—like when successful business women are called “ball busters” or “ice queens.” (Sorry Anna Wintour, it’s kind of true in your case.)

Reader Mariana sent us this stenciled graffiti from the Plateau neighborhood of Montreal.
Have you seen graffiti that’s kind of sweet (even if it is against the law)? Send your pic to email@example.com. Keep reading »
If you’ve ever been to London or seen the movie “Oliver,” you know that London has a booming pickpocket population. But if you’re hanging around Trafalgar Square or Covent Garden this month, you might witness “putpockets” slipping cash into your pocket or purse! A broadband provider is funding an initiative where 20 former pickpockets slip five 20-pound notes to the same wanderers they might have stolen from in a former life. The cops are in on the plan, which in total will distribute more than 100,000 pounds! Chris Fitch, a former pickpocket who’s manning the project said, “It feels good to give something back for a change—and Britons certainly need it in the current economic climate. Every time I put money back in someone’s pocket, I feel less guilty about the fact I spent many years taking it out.” What a nice gesture! Though I know I’d be a little freaked out if a stranger was that close to my butt without so much as a kiss. [Reuters] Keep reading »
It’s new release Tuesday, so it’s time to take the latest tunes for a spin! This week Queen Latifah has returned to claim her throne; the Arctic Monkeys heat things up; Aim & Ignite have some fun with us; Imogen Heap sings us right round; Jet fires off another record; Matisyahu sees the light; and DJ David Guetta gets by with a little help from his friends. So, let’s get into the groove, after the jump! Keep reading »
OK, jaded fashion lovers, listen up. We’re all tired of hearing about designers who donate two percent of the proceeds from a random T-shirt to some backwater pet charity in Papua New Guinea. (Note to all publicists: We see right through you.) But Kenneth Cole and Lauren Bush have collaborated on a Feed Health backpack that’s actually going to make a difference. For each of the $125 bags sold, another one will be donated to a health care worker in sub-Saharan Africa. The bag will be filled with medical supplies, like syringes and bandages. Condoms. A cell phone. Oh, and a scale to weigh newborn babies. Starting tomorrow, the backpack will be available at select Kenneth Cole stores and online here (with free shipping!). So, no more hoarding your pennies. Besides, you can’t even buy Givenchy on sale for that price! Keep reading »
