Shake Your Way To Leaner Arms And Look Ridiculous Doing It!


I’m a little confused about what people were thinking when they made this infomercial for the “Shake Weight,” but I’m pretty sure they were all men. Why else would they be claiming that giving handjobs shaking a barbell makes womens’ arms look better? Keep reading »

Taylor Momsen Is Very Opinionated In Teen Vogue

Taylor Momsen is on the September 2009 cover of Teen Vogue. In the accompanying Q&A Taylor proves that while she has a very atypical teen life, she still exhibits the highly-opinionated tone of most teens. Oh yeah, and she successfully insults teens for being teens. Read Taylor’s “gems of wisdom” regarding dating older men, the music industry, and choosing a rock ‘n’ roll style over being a “pretty girl” after the jump. Keep reading »

Christina Hendricks Of “Mad Men” Is Surprised, Saddened, By Responses To Joan’s Rape

If there’s one thing Mad Men fans know about the show, it is that nothing happens by accident. So I’m sure creator Matt Weiner intended Joan Holloway‘s rape at the hands of her douche-y doctor fiancé to make a point: in the 1960s, the concept of “date rape” did not exist and people scarcely spoke openly about rape.

But even though it’s 2009 now, Christina Hendricks, the actress who plays Joan, has noticed the point still appears to be lost on people. Hendricks told New York magazine:

“What’s astounding is when people say things like, ‘Well, you know that episode where Joan sort of got raped?’ Or they say rape and use quotation marks with their fingers. ‘I’m like, ‘What is that you are doing? Joan got raped!’ It illustrates how similar people are today, because we’re still questioning whether it’s a rape. It’s almost like, ‘Why didn’t you just say bad date?’ ”

“Sort of got raped”? How does one “sort of” get raped? Is that like being a little pregnant?

Bill Clinton Visits North Korea To Free Laura Ling And Euna Lee

Bill Clinton to the rescue! Slick Willy is currently in North Korea, trying to negotiate the release of American journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee, who’ve been sentenced to 12 years of hard labor for “illegal activity” after entering North Korea to report on Korean refugees. North Korea’s nuclear negotiator, Kim Kye Gwan, greeted Clinton at the airport, which has led many people to think that North Korea might try to use the women as a bargaining chip with the U.S. over their use of nuclear weapons. Bill insists that he’s avoiding that sticky issue, but even if he does get sucked into that debate, I gotta hand it to Bill, his timing is totally brilliant. North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong Il, is pretty sick—he may have pancreatic cancer, though people aren’t sure how bad it is because the government is so secretive. However, Kim Jong II is gonna be dying (pun!) for a photo shoot with the ex-prez. If he doesn’t make the photo-op, people are going to know he’s in really bad shape. [LA Times]

All of this sounds great—Clinton hopefully will be able to make some inroads in freeing Laura and Euna and do some reconnaissance work regarding North Korea’s government. But we do have one question—where’s Secretary of State Hillary? Keep reading »

What To Order At Celeb’s Favorite Restaurants

OK, yeah, I know what you’re going to say. Celebs, eat? Whaa? Last time I checked, Jen Aniston was a vegan/vegetarian/all-salad-all-day/raw foodist/no-foodist, that’s how she looks so freakin’ amazing in whatever pencil skirt or jeans-and-belt-combo she’s rocking today. (Or tomorrow, or yesterday…) Well, yeah—many stars have a strict diet they follow as well as an insane personal trainer on call to work off any extra ounce of pudge trying to lay claim to their hips—but I’m talking about what they eat when they make those grand gestures and venture out to the newest hotspot restaurant. You know, the restaurants you and I will never get into without having to eat dinner at 4:30 p.m. or 1 a.m.—places like Wolfgang Puck’s Cut in LA or The Waverly Place (pictured above) in New York City where just last night Sienna Miller, she of the bonkers closet fame, ate. Do you ever wonder what celebs chow on during their dinners out? (Hey, you either do or you don’t.) Here’s a list of celeb haunts and the menu item to order if you ever go on a date with Bradley Cooper and he leaves the “where” part up to you: Keep reading »

“The Rachel Zoe Project” Season Two Trailer: August Just Got A Whole Lot Better

It’s a big day in Rachel Zoe news. Not only did The Zoe Report debut this morning, but there’s also a preview trailer for season two of “The Rachel Zoe Project,” which airs on Bravo starting Aug. 24. We cannot wait to watch how she deals with the bad press about her underweight look; to see who quits first, Brad or Taylor; and to marvel at the gorgeousness that is Liv Tyler, who says upon arriving at Rachel’s studio, “I need cute outfits!” We do, too, Liv, so can we have your hand-me-downs?

Quick Video: “The September Issue” Preview!

At last, the masses can finally get a glimpse into the gilded ivory tower that is Vogue via “The September Issue.” The documentary, which was put together by Harvard graduate R.J. Cutler, follows the editrix-in-chief Anna Wintour and her staff in the making of the legendary September 2007 issue. At five pounds and nearly one thousand pages, the issue was the largest one to date. We get a chance to follow Wintour as she is whisked from private staff meetings to crowded runway shows during Fashion Week. The movie debuts exclusively in New York City later this month, and nationally on September 11th. [Racked] Keep reading »

Manly Sites Say No To Megan Fox And Yes To … Betty White?

Today is Megan Fox media blackout day, so we aren’t going to talk about her at all. Okay, stopping now. But what we do wanna talk about is how the dude websites that made this anti-Megan (err, have to stop talking about her) pact are replacing her with “Golden Girl” Betty White. We are super stoked about this, because Betty is pretty amazing. After the jump, a few reasons why Betty White is the coolest old lady around. Besides my grandma, of course. [Asylum] Keep reading »
