“The Help” Trailer Is Out!


The Help by Kathryn Stockett was one of my favorite books of 2010 — and millions of other readers agree. This summer, “The Help” hits the big screen, starring Emma Stone as Skeeter, a white recent college graduate writing for the local newspaper in her Mississippi town, and Viola Davis (“Doubt”) as Aibileen, a black maid who works for one of Skeeter’s friends. Skeeter comes home from college to find all the friends she grew up with are married with children and employers to black “help,” who are second-class citizens in 1960′s Jackson, Mississippi. The story follows Skeeter as she interviews Aibileen and other black maids for a secret book project that exposes the ugly day-to-day racism in Jackson’s domestic life to the rest of the world. While I was originally unconvinced that teen sex comedy queen Emma Stone was the right casting for the role of Skeeter, judging by the trailer for “The Help,” she carries it off with just the right amount of sass and spunk.

Important Question Of The Day

Why has no one answered this question? What shud she do about the spider in her vagina (aka STD)? There is a reason why I will not go camping … I’m scared of running into this girl getting reeeely drunk and having sex on the bear ground. Spider in my vagina? Not so much.

Will You Be Watching Lady Gaga’s “Monster Ball” Concert On HBO?

Some of us haven’t been lucky enough to see Lady Gaga in concert (ahem, Amelia). But fret not! Those of us who fork over the moolah each month for HBO can watch a concert video of Lady Gaga’s “Monster Ball” show on Saturday, May 7. Sigh. Minus the sweat of 10,000 screaming fans and buckets of glitter, it should be just the same, right? [YouTube] Keep reading »

Kate Hudson Makes Pregnancy Sound, Like, Way Awesome

“Being pregnant is wonderful. You do get the pregnant mush-brain … you know what it’s like? It’s like getting stoned.”

– Kate Hudson on being pregnant with her second child. I suspect Kate knows a thing or two about getting stoned. Frisky readers — who’ve been pregs — do you agree with Kate’s assertion that having a bun in the oven makes you feel, ahem, baked? [Dlisted] Keep reading »

Do Not Want: Grandma’s Attic Swimsuit

From the horrific wood paneling to the kitschy plastic heart belt buckle, this swimsuit is a dead ringer for my grandma’s attic. The major difference? My grandma used to pay me $2 to help organize her attic, but this swimsuit will run you $120. I think I’ll pass. [via ModCloth]

P.S. Click here for some modern one-piece suits that could be described with adjectives like “fun” and “cute” instead of “grandma’s attic-y.” Keep reading »

10 Celebrity Powder Mishaps

12 Celebrity Powder Mishaps

Excuse me, Melissa Joan Hart? I know you’re on your way into the premiere of “Frozen” but I really feel like someone should tell you this. You have something on your face. Specifically your forehead. Wait, there’s some around your nose and mouth too. Powdered sugar? Cocaine? Translucent powder? Probably the latter, most likely, though it’s hard to understand how any self-respecting makeup artist could let Melissa leave the house without blending in her makeup, like, at all. Ahh well, at least the theater was dark.

We may think celebrities are always picture perfect, but every once in a while we see behind the curtain — especially when those bright bulbs are flashing on the red carpet. Makeup is required. More specifically, powder. But it’s a delicate balance. Too much and your favorite celeb may look like a clown, too little and they’re shinier than an oil slick. Click through to see some very unfortunate celebrity powder mishaps.
