Celebrity stylist Jennifer Rade had been making like a fashion squirrel for months, collecting clothes for Angelina Jolie to wear while promoting her new flick, “Salt.” Jolie was scheduled for a fitting on Friday, but the night before, someone ganked three boxes full of designer pieces from Rade’s studio. We aren’t too surprised. I mean, clothes and jewels are expensive, and whoever took them now stands to make a hefty sum. Or they’ll just look fabulous? [NY Post]
Oddly, this crime reminded us of a few others. Keep reading »
This oral sex-inspired Sprite commercial, which apparently was banned in Germany, is the most sexual advertisement we’ve ever seen. And it’s kinda icky, to boot. Definitely not safe for work…unless you work at Sprite, probably. Keep reading »
A few years ago, when my parents moved out of the house I grew up in, they went on a major throwing-old-stuff-out spree. For a solid week, I’d get constant phone calls asking, “Can we bring your old My Little Ponies to Goodwill?” (Yes.) “Can we throw out your old report cards from elementary school?” (Um, definitely—why did you keep them in the first place?) My answer was yes, yes, yes, until I got one call. “Can I donate your Nancy Drew books to the library?” my mom asked.
“NO!” I screamed. Keep reading »
Friday nights have meant a long-standing date with Joel McHale and I. (And by “date,” I mean pretending he’s not the married father of two.) So when I read the host of E!’s “The Soup” will star in not one but two upcoming projects, backflips of joy were in order.
The first project is The Informant, an FBI thriller with Matt Damon debuting this October. Joel is actually a classically trained actor with a Master’s from the University of Washington, which explains why Stephen Soderbergh cast him. But he’ll keep close to his “Soup”-y comedic routes with his second project, starring alongside Chevy Chase on “Community,” an NBC comedy series about community college students and their professors. —[Papermag] Lucky for us, he’ll still be taping “The Soup” in addition to “Community.”
Seeing as Joel’s made his big break to network TV, it’s time to learn more about my dream boyfriend than just his very deep thoughts on “America’s Next Top Model.” Click through for five things to know about Joel McHale: Keep reading »

Did everyone watch Lindsay Lohan’s TV movie “Labor Pains” last night? I did not, as I was wrapped up in another episode of “The World’s Smallest Children” on Discovery Health (which you must watch, as it is utterly fascinating) and then went to bed early. But apparently, in the movie, Lindsay basically plays a pregnant version of herself, or so we’re led to believe by this video put together by the folks at Buzzfeed. Anyway, I’m sure the movie got such huge ratings that ABC Family probably will reair it every weekend for the next 30 years. Um, or not. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

If you are as big of an Oprah fan as I am — (I have been watching since I was 8, have written multiple letters trying to get on the show, and own the exhaustive Oprah Anniversary DVD collection. Moral of story, I heart Oprah.) — then you are also feeling bitter that you weren’t able to force yourself aboard Oprah’s debaucherous 10-day cruise with her 2,000 most valued employees and, err…gal pal…Gayle. Steadman couldn’t make it, AGAIN. No comment. While I was at home sweating in my humid apartment and taking cold showers while imagining that I was in a swimming pool, Oprah’s crew was tearing it up on the open seas. After the jump, the top 5 reasons I really missed out. Keep reading »
Once upon a time, couples got engaged, picked a venue and sent out save-the-date cards. Cards morphed into postcards and magnets, and these days, the trendy way to announce you’re getting hitched (and we’re invited) is a video save-the-date. Usually the videos are set to some sort of Michael Buble song and feature hazy shots of the couple, but recently, I saw a new favorite—it’s a stop-motion video by about-to-be-marrieds Haley Smith and Jason Harmon. Totally sweet! (And rather eco-friendly, too.) So, are you all over the whole video wedding invite phenomenon or do you think it’s too non-traditional? [Design Sponge] Keep reading »
This fall, four schools will participate in an experiment that combines girls-only classes with online teaching. Supposedly, the classes will be tailored specifically to females because, according to Larry Goodman, director of strategic programming at the Laurel School (one of the four participating schools), “There is no one out there who’s thinking with a specifically feminine audience in mind.” So what would a female-geared online course entail? Goodman claims that “[g]irls thrive best in environments where connectivity is valued.” Therefore, the courses will focus on collaborative projects. The creators of the project hope that in future years, girls from all over the world, including those who attend co-ed schools, will be able to participate in the girls-only online teaching experience.
