Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Back in 2009, fashion designer Anna McCraney wowed the fashion world when she won the inaugural season of Bravo TV’s “The Fashion Show.” And now, two years later, McCraney’s revealed what she’s done with the $125,000 winnings: She’s opened Annabelle, in downtown NYC, which carries her eponymous line, along with great jewelry, shoes, art books and more. We spoke to Annabelle about life after reality TV, and what it’s really like to be a successful designer.
Bristol Palin‘s reality show is happening, people. (Is this why she (maybe) got plastic surgery?) There’s no baby daddy Levi Johnston in it. There is no “16 & Pregnant” pal Maci Bookout in it. And it’s airing on the BIO network, which I’ve never heard of. So far, not so good. The utterly compelling premise of Bristol’s reality show? America’s most famous teen mom moves into an apartment with her “Dancing with the Stars” castmate Kyle Massey, his brother, Chris Massey, and her son, Tripp. According to BIO’s press release, the show “follows Bristol Palin’s move from Alaska to Los Angeles with her son, Tripp, to work at a small charity in need while living with her good friends Chris and Kyle Massey.” Wait, she is living with boys? BOYS! Or does Disney neuter their male employees at contract signage? (Note to self: must look up.) Keep reading »
“I remember watching it as a kid, with Jay Silverheels and Clayton Moore, and going: ‘Why is the f**king Lone Ranger telling Tonto what to do?’ I liked Tonto, even at that tender age, and knew Tonto was getting the unpleasant end of the stick here. That’s stuck with me. And when the idea came up [for the movie], I started thinking about Tonto and what could be done in my own small way try to — ‘eliminate’ isn’t possible — but reinvent the relationship, to attempt to take some of the ugliness thrown on the Native Americans, not only in ‘The Lone Ranger,’ but the way Indians were treated throughout history of cinema, and turn it on its head.”
—Johnny Depp talks about his reinterpretation of “The Lone Ranger,” which will be directed by Gore Verbinski, the man behind the camera for the “Pirates of the Caribbean” series. The twist on the classic “Ranger” story? That Johnny, who is actually part Native American, will play Tonto, the lead role. The secondary role, The Lone Ranger, has yet to be cast but both Ryan Gosling and Armie Hammer have both been rumored for it. We say: yes! [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
Love at first sight. Some think it’s total BS and can otherwise be described as “lust.” Some are full-fledged believers because they’ve experienced it themselves. Lately, many celebrities have revealed themselves to be firmly in camp B. Take John Krasinski‘s memory of his first time meeting now-wife Emily Blunt. “It was one of those things where I wasn’t really looking for a relationship and I was thinking I’d take my time in L.A.,” said John. “Then I met [Emily] and I was so nervous. I was like, ‘Oh god, I think I’m going to fall in love with her.’ As I shook her hand I went, ‘I like you.’” If you’re not saying “awwww” right now, something is seriously wrong. [Your Tango]
After the jump, more stars who’ve fallen in love at first sight.
I consider myself lucky because for the better part of 31+ years, I have lived a relatively allergy-free life. But that good fortune also means that when I suddenly found myself responding badly to the uptick of pollen in the spring air I could not shut the f**k up about suddenly having allergies. Seriously, I have been a huge baby for the last two weeks, whining incessantly about the pain in my sinuses, the never-ending snot clogging my nostrils, and the disgusting post-nasal drip tickling at the back of my throat. I’ve been moaning about it on Twitter, in my Facebook status updates, and to anyone who will listen, including my poor neighbors who have no doubt tired of hearing me snort and hack phlegm.

No, this is not how professional dancer Benjamin Millepied, aka Natalie Portman‘s fiance and baby daddy, walks down the street every day. Just once in a while. Like last Friday, when he was photographed in New York, shooting an ad for Yves Saint Laurent newest men’s fragrance. Which makes sense, since his lady is the face of Dior’s Miss Dior Cherie. They must be the best smelling couple on the planet. [People] Keep reading »
