Katie Holmes Offered Role In “Sex and the City 2″

With the mega success of the first “Sex and the City” movie, everybody in Hollywood probably wants a part in “Sex and the City 2.” But clearly only the chosen ones can have their dream come true. Rumor has it that a very lucky Katie Holmes is one of those selected. She has been approached to play “a really ballsy, high-powered company executive who tangles with Samantha” in the sequel. Holmes is doubtlessly crossing her fingers and toes that Tommy boy gives his stamp of approval. Because she and Victoria Beckham would have so much fun on set. [NY Post] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Newspaper Columnist Suggests Hillary Drink “Mad Bitch” Beer

  • If Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had been invited to the Obama’s “beer summit,” she should have knocked back a bottle of Mad Bitch beer, said Dana Milbank, a columnist for The Washington Post, in a video on the WaPo web site. [Politico] — Because insinuating a powerful woman is a bitch is funny. Get it? Ha. Ha.
  • A poll of 3,000 Brits found that the average woman checks out six men for a total of 20 minutes each day, while the average man checks out 10 women for 43 minutes. [The Sun UK] — In the interest of equality, this clearly means us gals need more eye candy!
  • Gay and lesbian couples will be reported in the 2010 U.S. Census for the first time ever. [National Gay And Lesbian Task Force] — I can’t believe it took until 2010 for this to finally happen.

Could You Ever Get Past Hearing “I Don’t Love You Anymore?”

One of the big bombshells my ex dropped the day he decided he needed a break was, “I don’t know that we’re in love anymore.” I didn’t buy it. I was in love and I was certain he was too. He was confused, he needed space, and I was going to give it to him, despite the fact that for many, his words would have been the final nail in the coffin. So I was fascinated to read Laura Munson’s “Modern Love” column in Sunday’s New York Times about her refusal to fight with her husband when he declared he no longer loved her. Keep reading »

Nude Girls Sell All Kinds Of Things, Including Keds

Ronan Gregory, the guy behind Ronan, Edun and Loomstate, just teamed up with Barney’s CO-OP to put out a line of eco-friendly Keds that feature rather adorable prints and lace-less construction. But as darling as the shoes themselves are, the promo video may be even cuter. Admittedly, we’re not entirely sure what a naked, frolicking girl has to do with gym shoes, but we’re feeling this Loomstate for Keds promo anyway. We’re liking it so much, in fact, that we’re willing to make some allowances for the gratuitous skinny girl nudity and chalk it up to some sort of homage to nature. Yeah, anyway. Keep reading »

Remote Control: What You’ll Want to Watch The Week Of August 3rd 2009

This week, lots of shows are coming and going. First, we’ll say good-bye to “So You Think You Can Dance” for the season. But do not fret.

Vogue Australia Celebrates 50 With Illustrated Covers

While Anna Wintour has been at work making her magazine “recession-friendly,” the international Vogue editions have been heading in an artsier direction lately with innovative collaborations and special editions all around. Now, Vogue Australia has also decided to do something a bit different. For its 50th anniversary, the magazine is putting out a commemorative issue (September 2009) featuring the work of famous fashion and celeb illustrator, David Downton. In four separate covers, Downton sketched Cate Blanchett in vintage styles that recall the days before photography. It’s a great reminder of the history behind the magazine, as well as fashion’s journey through the years. Vogue Australia also seems to have a solid marketing strategy: While the issue will be sold in a gold box as a limited edition, the price is a mere 12.95 Australian dollars, which is about 11 USD. That’s recession-friendly and chic. [WWD] Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Christina Hendricks On What Makes “Mad Men” So Sexy

“There’s something in what you don’t see. There’s restraint. I’ve had people say to me, ‘My husband and I watch it and we always have sex afterwards.’ I think it’s really hot that some of the things it’s stirring up in people are very naughty things.”

Doin’ It With Dr. V: Masturbation

This week I got a letter from a teeny bopper, who just can’t seem to “She Bop,” if you know what I mean. She wrote:

I’m 19, have never had a boyfriend, and am still a virgin.
 I’m not coming to you for relationship advice; the way I see it I don’t need a man right now. The thing is, as I’m sure you know, sex dominates culture. Just because I’ve never done it doesn’t mean I haven’t heard stories, and it’s made me pretty damn horny. I’m kind of curious about masturbation, but I feel like I’m just doing it wrong. Nothing seems to really get me there. Do you have advice for a beginner like me?

Well, honey, even a ho like me will tell you that there’s no rush to lose your virginity — especially if you’ haven’t orgasmed on your own first! Lettin’ some dude sock it to you before you know how to get off isn’t gonna do it for ya. No man is that good. You’ve got to take your O into your own hands! You’ve got to solve, or rather diddle, your own ecstasy riddle. So, all that work you’ve been doing feeling around down there, even if it hasn’t finished the job, is a good start! Now here’s how you can take yourself all the way home. Keep reading »
