Over-Excitement On “The X Factor”

A contestant on the UK’s largest talent search show “The X Factor” got a little, shall we say, over-excited when his turn to sing, uh, came up. Steve, an unemployed 50-year-old man, sang “It’s My Party” while his daughters looked on in horror backstage. “I don’t know what’s happening,” uttered one as she tried to shield her eyes from the growing bulge in her father’s pants. “I could tell you were having a good time up there,” said Simon Cowell when Steve finished his song. But the best line of the evening went to judge Louis Walsh — otherwise known as “the judge who isn’t Simon Cowell” — who quipped, “I just don’t think you have the full package.” Maybe not … but he sure was close.

Woman Marries Her Former Doorman, Childhood Crush

When I was a teen, I crushed on many, many older dudes. When I was 14, there was Rob, who worked at my local video store and was easily in his mid-20s; at 16, I had it bad for Tony, who was also in his mid-20s and wore Tevas (don’t judge!); and at 18, Jesse, who was six years older, but had known me since my boobs were just mosquito bites. I imagined that all of them would see past the age difference and fall madly in love with me too, but I didn’t really have a prayer of it actually happening. Maybe I should have been a little more ambitious — and had a little more faith — like Jessica Rosen, who, after 18 years, married her childhood crush, the cute doorman who began working at her Upper East Side apartment building when she was just 12 years old. The New York Times profiled the couple’s wedding this weekend. More romance, after the jump… Keep reading »

I Wanna Dress Like: Brad Goreski From “The Rachel Zoe Project”

i wanna dress like brad goreski m jpg
I’ve expressed my love of Taylor Jacobson, one of Rachel Zoe’s styling associates who is often called “crabby” by people who don’t understand her deep personality. But I’m not choosing sides in the Taylor-Brad debate because Brad Goreski is just as lovable in his own way. And the fact that Brad’s a guy doesn’t mean I can’t cop his style: We already have a love of plaid and bow ties in common!

Quick Pic: Crazy Cat Lady Crashes The Red Carpet

Stacy Haiduk from “The Young & The Restless” arrived at the Daytime Emmy Awards with a special friend for a handbag. We knew taxidermy-inspired accessories were kind of “in,” but we didn’t realize they were red carpet appropriate… [Los Angeles, 8/30/09]

UPDATE: According to DListed:

The creepy cat of my nightmares is actually Stacy’s co-star on the “Young and the Restless.” Stacy plays Mary Jane, a crazy bitch who thinks her dead cat is real.

For The Week Of August 31-September 6, 2009

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Your patience is running thin. To remain intact, realize it’s time to make a compromise or a total cut in your emotional dealings. No, it won’t be as painless as you’d wish, but trust it won’t be as harsh as you imagine. Don’t be scared of making the change, because if you don’t make that move now, the universe will do it for you and it won’t be as compassionate.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Emotionally, you’ll be too drained to deal with the nitty-gritty of life. Then, to also have to deal with picking up the slack for someone else who you already know isn’t as capable as you, that’s just another drama. However, options always abound and unless you look to see the obvious, then you can consider this week a peek into your Christmas future.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Your cynicism will get a shock to its system as all that bulls**t you’ve been through, which has caused a callus to form over your heart, will start to get diffused by a miraculous romantic concoction. You’ll be wondering if you’ve stepped into an alternate reality. Sure, it might last a day, or it might last forever. The point is to keep an open mind.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Your optimism for love is like a bulletproof vest that protects you from shots of reality that would have others, who have no vision, running for the hills. This week, though, even you will take the grave wrong turn. But it will give you the clarity to see that someone isn’t truly all that.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Be careful of saying things you feel at the moment you feel them. Seems this week your emotions will be too unpredictable and changeable to make any promises, which can cause a major upset if you reveal too much. As it goes, you won’t be in a place to make any solid commitments — even though it might feel like it one minute, your mind will change in another.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

There will be subtle jabs at your confidence from an undermining source — someone who you thought had your back. While this duplicity will anger and upset you, don’t react suddenly. Be gracious about separating yourself from this bad energy, as it won’t be worth confronting. Rather, use this knowledge as power to beat them at their own game. Show them who’s the master.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

You’ve seen all sides to the case in dispute. Now it’s time to call all your inner voices in for a huddle to get to the verdict. Dealing once and for all with your state of distress will set you into fight or flight mode. However, do realize that you must be prudent, as all sales are final with no exceptions made.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

If you find yourself living in your own version of Groundhog’s Day — where everything just repeats itself over and over again, and no matter how many different ways you approach the situation, you always wind up at the same place — don’t fret! A change is coming. It will pull all you’ve learned into perfect order, finally making sense of your madness, at least just a little.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Drama hits your friendship and this time it won’t be as easy to gloss over as in the past. It might be time that you have to let someone go or, at the least, take a time out. Whichever the case, emotions will be running high. The more you allow yourself to vent and f**k the pain away, the more you will ensure yourself of landing on your feet.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Being able to think for the greater good is vital for you right now, as it’ll win you the trust you seek. Otherwise, just going for instant gratification won’t win you any fans, or any true satisfaction. As it goes, right now is about laying down tracks that will make a solid foundation for your future. If you can’t see that straight, then realize you’re probably barking up the wrong tree.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Throw a party for yourself this week because there will be a light at the end of the tunnel. An epiphany is due to you! It will give you a sense of clarity you haven’t had in ages. However, you must be prepared for whatever lesson you will learn, as there is no stopping the caboose now, as now it’s all about fast-tracking.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

If you have someone to boogie down with, do so. This is a hot week to get your groove on and really work out the tension in the deepest parts of your psyche and body. Let loose and get as freaky as you’d like to, because the more you let your imagination run you wild, the more control you will feel you have over your fate. It’s sometimes about ending so you can begin again.

Roxanne’s Revenge: Former Hip-Hop Artist Doesn’t Get Angry, She Gets A PhD


Some stories make me want to run through the streets screaming “Take that ‘the man’!” This is one of them. Before Salt-N-Peppa were pushin’ it and Lil’ Kim was blowing your mind with her dirty bird lyrics, Roxanne Shante was blowing up the airwaves with her single “Roxanne’s Revenge.” She was just 14 at the time (it was 1984), and even though the song was a hit and her future looked promising, she didn’t achieve the same fame and fortune as the female hip-hoppers that followed in her footsteps. After some shady business (lying, stealing her royalties, the usual) with her record label, Warner Brothers, she realized that they were slippery bastards. By 19, she was a bitter has-been—a broke teenage mother living in the projects. But Roxanne decided to truly get revenge when she found a life-saving clause in her contract, which stated that the record label would fund her education for life. Keep reading »

Assad Mounser Jewelry Line Teaches Us A Lesson

We guess good things come to those who don’t wait. A year ago, Brooklynite Amanda Assad was working as a publicist for New York-based shoe designer Alejandro Ingelmo (check out his ultra high, dangerously sexy heels if you haven’t already). She started making jewelry in her spare time, and voilà! Now her oversize multiple charm necklaces (like this amazing rosary-inspired piece available at Otteny) are showing up in major fashion editorials, such as this one in Purple magazine. So I think we’ve all learned a very valuable lesson here today. Don’t slack! What’s your big idea? Keep reading »
