Quote Of The Day: Judd Apatow & Seth Rogen Hate Katherine Heigl Too

Seth Rogen: “['The Ugly Truth'] looks like it really puts women on a pedestal in a beautiful way.”
Judd Apatow: “I hear there’s a scene where she’s wearing… underwear… with a vibrator in it, so I’d have to see if that was uplifting for women.”
Rogen: “I gotta say, it’s not like we’re the only people she said some bats**t crazy things about. That’s kind of her bag now.”

–The star and director of “Funny People” on Katherine Heigl‘s hypocrisy in an interview with Howard Stern. Heigl famously told Vanity Fair that she thought “Knocked Up” (the Apatow film that she starred in alongside Rogen) “painted women as shrews.” Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Study Finds Feminists Actually Don’t Hate Men. Um, Duh.

  • Here’s a shocker: Feminists don’t actually hate men. A study published by the Psychology of Women Quarterly found that people who cheerlead for traditional gender roles, not feminists, reportedly have the most negative attitudes about the menfolk. [Feministing] — However, further study is required on why feminists won’t shave their hairy armpits, burn their bras, and have no sense of humor.
  • Billie Jean King, one of the first openly gay athletes, and Harvey Milk, the gay civil rights leader upon whom the film Milk was based, will be recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. [San Francisco Chronicle]—So will Sen. Ted Kennedy, presumably for his role in helping the Obamas pick their new puppy, Bo.
  • Despite opposition from the Vatican, Italy’s drug agency ruled yesterday that hospitals can give women RU-486, the abortion pill. Italy will not allow RU-486 to be sold at drugstores, however. [Guardian]—So if a woman wants to terminate a pregnancy with the abortion pill in Italy, she has to check into a hospital? Doesn’t that totally negate the point of RU-486, which was to allow women to have an abortion in the privacy of her own home? Color us confused.

George Clooney’s New Girlfriend Is His Best Yet!

George Clooney usually has a thing for cocktail waitresses (like his ex, Sarah Larson), but his new girlfriend is someone he can actually discuss his “craft” with. Clooney met Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis when he was in Rome and he immediately began wooing her, taking her on romantic jaunts to his villa on Lake Como. So far, we think Canalis is rad. According to The Sun, Canalis once portrayed a nun who bared her breasts in the film “Virgin Territory.” Lest you think she is a one-trick pony, she also had a role in “Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo,” and currently hosts the Italian version of MTV’s “Total Request Live.” Will this Italian beauty be the one to nab Clooney’s fickle heart?

Is William Shatner Obsessed With Sarah Palin?

Several folks have noted that Sarah Palin‘s words kinda sound like poetry. But William Shatner seems to believe that on a whole ‘nother lever. On Monday night, Shatner did a spoken word performance as only the master of sexy slow talk can do, and on Wednesday’s Conan O’Brien, he recited some of Palin’s tweets, proving he needed no more than 140 words to create a performance masterpiece. Oh, oh. I hope this obsession leads to romance. I would vote Palin for president if William Shatner were her vice president slash lovah. More after the jump… Keep reading »

Flowchart: What To Do When You Get Stood Up

I just got stood up. It’s sad, but true. Worst of all, it was finally the sex date. Double burn. I don’t know why this last dude left me waiting. My guess is he was either called back into spy service by the FBI or mauled by a tiger. Fingers crossed it was the latter. Just kidding. Sort of. But couldn’t he at least have had the balls to dump me, instead of just leaving me hanging? Sigh.

Unfortunately, for some reason, I get stood up a lot. I’m kind of a pro at it by now. It all started back in high school when my date ditched me the night of my senior prom. And a couple years ago, I spent a Valentine’s Day alone on my sofa in a new red dress crying to Ben & Jerry. (Although that did inspire me to make this music mix, “You Can’t F*#& The Hole In My Heart.”) So, as you can see, I’m an expert with what you should do with the night you had saved for a man who doesn’t show up to share it. Here are some options and outcomes in a handy-dandy flowchart. (CLICK HERE to see it on a larger scale.) Notice, I don’t recommend bitching him out. I’m classy like that. And you obvi have better things to do too, girl! Keep reading »

How Exciting Is The Return Of Charles Jourdan?

Pump genius Charles Jourdan was a leader in the shoe biz — reaching cult status in the ’60s and ’70s — until the company slowly suffered from bankruptcy and fell off the map (despite attempts by the Hilton family to revive the label). Now, thanks to Alexandra Neel, best known for her design work with Celine and Balenciaga, Jourdan will make a comeback through a seriously hotly anticipated new collection set to come out in the fall.

Vanity iPhone App Says You’re Ugly!

The Vanity iPhone app is the latest application to confuse us because it somehow judges “beauty.” All you have to do is import a face-forward, close-up photo into the app, and it will instruct you to mark certain areas of your face, like the outline of your nose and the bottom-center of your chin. Then, you press “calculate” to have either your ego crushed or inflated, as the Vanity iPhone App judges your beauty on a scale of one to 10. The app doesn’t account for hairstyle, flawless skin, or smile because it only measures proportions, and I suspect it also ignores the fact that different races have different facial feature proportions. Amelia decided to test it out and confirmed what we already suspected — that myself, Catherine, and Simcha are all more beautiful than Megan Fox. Amelia’s dog Lucca wasn’t far behind. Our plastic wild hog was not so lucky. Worth paying the $2.99 for confirmation, though! [Daily Beauty Reporter Blog] Keep reading »
