Britney Spears’ Odd, Uncomfortable-Sounding Beauty Secret

According to, erm, Ireland Online of all places, Britney Spears has a rather strange beauty regimen involving aluminum foil:

“The ‘Womanizer’ singer reportedly uses cool strips of the metallic cooking aid to give her lips an instant pick-me-up when she is feeling tired. A source said: ‘To keep her lips looking perky and fresh, her make-up artist takes a sheet from a stockpile of frozen foil in his freezer, pokes a hole in it so Britney can breath through her mouth and smoothes it over her face.’”

Really?

While I’ve heard of plenty of crazy beauty remedies and tried loads of weird treatments in my day, I’ve never heard of using freezing cold foil on your face, especially to make your lips look “perky and fresh?” Could this actually be for rizzles? Was I absent this day at beauty school? Anyone actually heard of this? [Ireland Online] Keep reading »

Love-Shy Men Blame Their Virginity On Women

An article on Times Online introduces us to the term “Love Shyness,” a rare psychological “condition” (it’s not included in the American DSM-1V — “the clinicians’ bible for psychiatric diagnoses”) that affects only men. Love-shyness is a kind of chronic shyness that makes it nearly impossible for a man “to initiate or to engage in romantic interplay.” That’s not only foreplay we’re talking about — love-shy men have trouble even making eye contact with someone of the opposite sex. They have a hard time carrying on a conversation with women, shake uncontrollably in their presence, and sometimes even sob. Not unsurprisingly, these men are “terminally, heartbrokenly, virginally lonely,” and if their message board on Love-Shy.com is any indicator, they blame women for their sorry state. Keep reading »

Rod Blagojevich Does A Mean Elvis


In a few days, disgraced Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich will head to court to work out his plea deal. But first, he has important things to take care of. Over the weekend, he made an appearance at a Chicago block party to sing a little Elvis ditty called “Treat Me Nice” along with his “fellow unemployed friend,” Fabio of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter fame. Rod, love the popped collar, but your hip swivel needs some work. Keep reading »

The Real Reason Victoria Beckham Quit The Armani Campaign

Sorry, kids. No more Beckham underwear porn for you. Victoria Beckham has decided against continuing the super steamy underwear campaign that she models with her husband for Armani. The reason? She says she wants to concentrate on her fashion career, as she’ll be presenting her line at NYC Fashion Week for the second time. However, could it be that she’s finally embracing her inner prude? Apparently, the Beckham children have asked some questions about their naked parents. Says David, “When they first saw them, they were like: ‘Daddy, why are you in your underwear so everyone can see?’”

That isn’t enough, though, to tear the soccer star away from the campaign—he’s keeping his contract. So, will Armani slate another sexy celeb couple to shoot the line? What Hollywood pair would measure up? Brad and Angie? Will and Jada? [Grazia, NowMagazine.co.uk] Keep reading »

Too Hairy For Love?

I’m not gonna lie. Years ago, I went out with a guy whose hairy back and shoulders grossed me out so much, I had a hard time envisioning much of a future with him. He was an unemployed, pill-popping chain-smoker — oh, and he was short, too — but it was his excessive body hair that really made me doubt the longevity of our affair. Ironically, after a few dates, it was he who ended things with me, which really made my self-esteem plummet. Getting dumped by a hottie every woman lusts after is one thing, but having your calls go repeatedly unanswered by a short, little hairy man with bad breath is something else altogether. It was weeks before I had the confidence to even return any online dating winks. Keep reading »

Kathy Griffin And Levi Johnston Are Together … Say Wha’?!

Kathy Griffin, 48, found a new partner in crime prime time, Levi Johnston, 19. Bristol Palin’s baby-daddy, who has been doing the talk-show circuit, escorted the D-lister to the Teen Choice Awards last night. Despite the terrified baby-animal-caught-in-a-cougar-trap look on his face, Levi talked some serious game. “She’s beautiful and funny. She’s the star of the night.” He even kissed her on the cheek! We shudder. [MSNBC] Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Gerard Butler Doesn’t Know What Kind Of Woman He Wants

“Sometimes along the way in my life I don’t want a smart woman right now, I want a dumb woman. But then you think, that doesn’t work, now I want a smart woman. Then you get a smart woman and you go no, that doesn’t work so it’s just killing me right now.”

But Can You Walk In Them?

Talk about a test-drive. Recent fashion seasons have seen some of the highest heels on record, from Nina Ricci’s heel-less high-heels to Rodarte’s towering Frankenstein boots. They may be beautiful, but can real women walk to work in the seven-inch stilettos that sent some supermodels spilling on the runways? The ladies at New York‘s style blog, The Cut, pulled together some of the craziest footwear and found out what happens when you try and sashay down the street in them. “They’re incredibly uncomfortable,” one good sport reports. And as for those Nina Ricci heels? Forget about it — unless you like walking on your tiptoes. [The Cut] Keep reading »

We See Chick Flicks: “Julie & Julia”

Starring Meryl Streep and Amy Adams
Directed by Nora Ephron

The Lowdown: Here’s what I wish the title of this movie was: “Julia.” Period. No Julie, just Julia.

Julie, who you probably know as the blogger and author who cooked through Julia Child’s recipes in a year, is a drip. Julie (as played by Amy Adams) is a self-acknowledged failure on the brink of 30, who had striven to publish a novel and instead wrote only a portion of it before settling for a dreary Manhattan office job. A painful commentary on the state of professional women, there’s the lingering stereotype (and, admittedly, partial reality) of the “lost” thirty-something woman that hangs over the climate Julie exists in.
