Modern men (some of ‘em) are embracing their feminine side as modern women (some of ‘em) are becoming more masculine. (Pretty soon we’ll start going to the doctor before an injury is life-threatening.) As this Yin-Yang convergence occurs, interest in his looks, clothing and grooming is surging.

Supposedly, Italians in the late ’90s couldn’t grasp why the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal caused such hysteria in the states. Well, my dear Italians, the tables have turned. In case you’ve been under a rock (like I have) Italy’s premier, Silvio Berlusconi, has been living out a Clintonian mess for the last week. First, Berlusconi attended the 18th birthday party of model Noemi Letizia in Naples. Then his wife, former actress Veronica Lario, filed for a divorce, saying it was inappropriate for Berlusconi to be at the girl’s birthday since, well, he never bothered to show up at any of his own kids’ 18th soirees. (Good point.) And now photographs have leaked depicting a New Year’s party held at Berlusconi’s Sardinian villa where model Letizia was part of the turnout.
Berlusconi vehemently denies the rumors, and says that if anyone can prove the allegations are true he’d resign “in an instant.” This saga couldn’t come at a worse time for him. Elections are next week and this political pickle might push Berlusconi’s Italian rightist party out of power.
In other news, now I can name at least one person I’m having a better week than. [Associated Press]

While choosing bedazzled table linens and lacy garters can be stimulating, wedding planning can also be pure misery. Every day I fantasize about telling my mother and future mother-in-law to take a hike so my fiancé and I can hightail it to Vegas, or even better, Paris, or some exotic, beachy location, but unfortunately, that isn’t in the stars for my impending nuptials.

Drew Barrymore (and Justin Long) went to a Green Day concert last night. Drew wore what looks like a blanket with straps. Even though plaid is my favorite color, I do not approve. [Hollywood, 6/4/09] Keep reading »
