Just a week after the NBA fined Kobe Bryant a cool $100,000 for calling a ref a “f**king fa**ot” during a game, the Lakers filmed a PSA reminding fans “Words Can Be Hurtful.” The low-budget vid stars Kobe, Lamar Odom and other b-ballers telling us the world is a “special” place because peeps have all kinds of races, ethnicities, political beliefs, and sexual orientations. It ends with Kobe imploring you to have some compassion and understanding for others.
What a great video — I only wish it hadn’t taken a $100,000 mistake for it to be made.

Lordy, were the Hollywood clubs empty last night? It seems like every single famous female celeb in Tinseltown was at Coach’s “Evening of Cocktails and Shopping” to Benefit the Children’s Defense Fund. Except Lindsay Lohan, so I suppose the clubs did alright for themselves after all. Anyhoo, as this event was for a good cause, I found myself unable to critique anyone’s look as “bad,” per se. So, keep clicking to find out who looked good, meh, and amaaaazing…
Prepare your references, Mary Poppins. According to nanny hopefuls, if you’d like to be in the employ of the Jolie-Pitt family, you’d better have some skills. For starters, you must have a college degree in education or child development, be able to act as a personal educator, speak at least two languages (including the language of origin of the adopted kids), and be willing to globe trot. And your salary? Anywhere from $50,000 to $150,000 depending on your charge. Yes, I said charge. Each member of the brood gets their own personal nanny. I wonder whose nanny costs the most. I’m guessing Shiloh because of her fashion demands. Any applicants? [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
This Topshop tasseled maxi skirt takes the fringe trend to, well, the max. With its tie-dye top section, I wouldn’t be surprised to find it in our Coachella style roundup, but that’s about the only situation I can imagine wearing it. We asked the Man Panel what they thought of this uber-bohemian look, and here’s what they had to say… Keep reading »
Wow, what a crazy past few months. I believe I cared for myself pretty well after my big breakup, which was now almost four months ago. I surrounded myself with my family, which was easy because I moved back in with my parents. I spent a lot of QT with my girl friends. I drank and shopped and watched crappy TV shows, as you do. When I felt ready to poke my head out of my hole and venture out on dates again, I splurged on a couple pairs of sexy heels. I kept myself busy buying furniture for my new apartment, being a good sister and friend, doing my taxes — anything I could think of.
Now I’m all moved into my new place. I go on dates with a new guy, casually, once or twice a week. After months of tiny tornadeos wrecking havoc on the blessed life I had six months ago, outward appearances look like the dust has finally settled.
Inside? That’s a different story. Keep reading »
