Australians Courtney and Amelia Prentice—19-year-old twins who look like bad-ass versions of Lauren Conrad—used to be part of an all-girl gang that spent a lot of time getting drunk and roaming the streets looking for fights. Last year, the group encountered two chicks on the beach and beat the crap out of them, knocking them to the ground, punching them, and yelling “Stab them! Stab them!” repeatedly before taking all their money. When the police rolled up at the twins’ house to arrest them, one of the girls punched an officer, so the whole arrest had to go down at gunpoint. Still, this week in court, the girls were sentenced to 18 months of probation instead of jail time. Why couldn’t the judge stick them with a worse punishment? Because the twins looks so darn much alike, no one could tell “who did what” during the fight. Ditto for the punching of the police officer. Keep reading »
Derms have been recommending this vibrating, rechargeable, pore-cleaning brush in magazine articles and during office appointments since the dinos roamed the earth. Seriously, even Wilma Flintstone keyed Betty Rubble into its gorgeous skin results way back when. I tried to block out all the talk and labeled the Clarisonic brush as nothing but hype—make that expensive hype, since a Clarisonic Brush costs around $200. I’m, sadly, not s**ting you. And mostly, up until about a month ago, the price was what held me back from proving all the hype wrong. But, in a moment of total insanity, I took my debit card to Sephora, snatched a Clarisonic kit off the shelf, paid super quick so I wouldn’t come to my senses and ran out. (But not before the register lady gushed about, what else, the Clarisonic brush. No, really, does Clarisonic pay off 90 percent of the retail and beauty industry?) Well, as I found out … Keep reading »

You and your sweetie just don’t seem to connect as much, or as often as you used to. You fight more (or bicker about insignificant topics), you find yourself spending more time by yourself. How do you know if it is just a bad patch or if the relationship is over?

The hose is phallic. The grip is tight. The muscles are bulging. The fluid is flammable. What’s NOT sexy about a hot guy pumping gas?
This week actress Michelle Monaghan turned it out for the Vogue event at Saks Fifth Avenue in NYC–they were celebrating the opening of their new and improved third designer-packed floor–along with a slew of other celebs including Anna Wintour fave Charlize Theron. Anyways, Michelle really pulled off the inner lower eyelid lining thing—and it ain’t that easy to do. So many people try lining the inner rim of their eyes and hate either the results (teeny-looking eyes) or the process (getting that pencil so freaking close to your eyeball!). But if you’re someone who doesn’t mind getting in there and working it with the eyeliner, check out my eye-widening liner tip, after the jump! (I swear your eye really will look ginorm.)

There’s really nothing like a good collaboration in fashion because it’s as if two creative minds have merged in one and created something totally unique, like Anna Sui for Target or Manolo Blahnik for Rachel Roy. During the madness before Monarchy’s Spring 2010 collection, between a Janice Dickinson sighting and Robert Verdi on-air moments, Vanessa and Angela Simmons discussed their own design collaboration dreams with us.”Betsey Johnson! She would be, wow,” the sisters gushed in unison. “We also love the boys from DSquared. There are just so many great fashion designers right now, but those would be are our two top ones. They have so much fun with fashion.” Will we see Pastry for Betsey Johnson next season, along with a trio of cartwheels? Keep reading »
Last week my friend told me she was skipping her husband’s annual office picnic this year. She said she’d gained at least 5–10 pounds since the last time she saw his co-workers, and couldn’t handle their judging eyes. She also said she would never want to “embarrass” her husband. WHAT? I couldn’t believe my ears. Here is a smart, beautiful, fun woman who is missing a party because of a little weight gain? Keep reading »
Now, I don’t really watch tennis, though I did go to the U.S. Open once and it was funzies. But tonight I’m at home because it’s nasty outside and that’s how cool I am, so I’m watching a little bit because I think Serena Williams is rad. So all of the sudden, like, something happens and the referee on the side — a line judge I have read — makes a call saying Serena did something bad. In technical sports terms, the Los Angeles Times
says Serena was called for a foot fault, whatever that means. But then the sports announcers were like, “Nuh uh, she didn’t do that.” Serena didn’t seem to believe it either because she started yelling at the line judge. Then the line judge was like, “Bitch, no you didn’t” and went to the main judge sitting in the big tall chair, and she told him what was going on and then Serena was like, “What? I didn’t say I would kill you!” Then the big judge docked Serena some more points and, lo and behold, Williams lost then and there to her opponent, Kim Clijsters. You can watch the whole thing above. I promise to put up a better quality video as soon as possible. Drama on the courts! [LA Times
