There was a time not so long ago when famous folk wanted to create the illusion that they were NOT “just like us.” Grace Kelly was never photographed buying jumbo packs of toilet paper! Audrey Hepburn describing where she was the day Aunt Flo first came to visit? HA! Nowadays many female stars, like Jennifer Love Hewitt, are eager to overshare about their private bodily business.
If only JLH had taken a cue from Audrey Hepburn (who she once played in TV movie), we wouldn’t have had to endure news of her vajazzling habits for the last two years. At this point, we will never forget that she is responsible for the ridiculous trend, which includes encrusting one’s pubic area with crystals. But we really wish she would stop talking about it already. She’s forever marring her brand. At last week’s Upfronts for “The Client List,” she told red carpet reporters that she was vjazzled for the special occasion: “I’m full of good energy [down there]” she overshared. Ugh. Make it stop. From bikini waxing and colonics to anal bleaching. Here are some other examples of crazy celeb TMI. [Celebitchy]
Looking like an outtake from Kanye West’s “Monster” video, here’s British model/actress Kelly Brook smeared in red lipstick for Exhibition magazine. (Full NSFW-ish pics, after the jump!) I hope this lippy isn’t Revlon Colorstay Overtime because girlfriend is not going to be able to wipe that stuff off for another 16 hours. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
“I spent my entire life being obsessed with dieting … Bingeing and then fasting or starving. Forbidding everything. That’s how I used to be: up and down five pounds every single day, to the extremes. My metabolism was totally wrecked … I would go buy magazines just to see what the new diet was and rip it out.”
– Bethenny Frankel on overcoming her diet and exercise addiction. I think it’s brave of her to admit this considering her line of work is creating dieting products and books for women. She talks about being sent to an obesity clinic by her mother when she was only eight years old. That stuff stays with you for life. It becomes ingrained so deeply in your unconscious that the thought patterns are difficult to break. I think many women (including myself) will find her story extremely relatable, especially those who were told they were fat or struggled with weight issues as children. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »
“There was (and still is) something wrong with me. And it’s the same thing that’s ‘wrong’ with pretty much every single woman in New York complaining she can’t find a decent man … We don’t know what we want. And so we want a little bit of everything, over and over again.”
Jennifer Doll’s words on the plight of the NYC single woman in the Village Voice last week have been keeping me awake at night. She’s right. Sometimes I get so overwhelmed that I’m rendered inert by my confusion. I’m stuck. Keep reading »
Stop the presses: this Kate Spade newspaper classified-printed iPad cover is a funky, literary take on the could-be-boring protective shield. Reading the fake classified ads like “Volunteers needed at the zoo” and “Found: spotted chihuahua” will keep you preoccupied when you’re out of a WiFi zone — not that you’d ever let that happen. While $85 might seem a bit steep for what amounts to a piece of plastic, it’s worth it to save your iPad from a klutzy accident, while looking geek-chic. No ink-stained fingers necessary!
