I remember someone telling me years ago that burglars look through wedding sections and obituaries to pick their targets. If someone in a family is getting married or if there’s a family funeral—chances are no one will be home. Looks like someone used this method to break into sweet Canadian crooner Michael Buble’s house while he was getting hitched over the weekend. It was widely publicized that his wedding to Argentinean actress Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre was going down in her home country. So burglars disabled his home’s security system and made off with a bunch of loot. “I will not let this ruin the happiest day of my life,” Luisana said when the theft was discovered. Hey, at least they didn’t steal one of her three wedding dresses? [PopEater] Keep reading »

The truth is out: Thanks to a little comparative research by our friends at Brokelyn, we found out what the rates and benefits are for working at some of the most popular retail spots. Anthropologie? Sales associates start at anywhere between $9 and $11 an hour and get 40-percent discounts on apparel, 25 percent on home, and no discount on sale items. American Apparel employees make between $9 and $10 an hour to start as a cashier, and assistant managers only make a dollar more. Employees get 50-percent off everything in the store. The downside? They have to work for Dov Charney. Victoria’s Secret employees make minimum wage (which is dependent upon the state) and get 20-percent discounts to start, while Abercrombie & Fitch employees also toil away for minimum wage but receive 40-percent discounts on merch. Abercrombie & Fitch merch, but still.
Of course, that’s just a small sampling of the retail opportunities out there. So tell us: what’s the inside story on working retail in your town? [Brokelyn] Keep reading »
So, Heidi Montag, Jake Pavelka, and Danielle Staub walk into a bar. No, sadly, this is not a joke. Apparently, this is a new reality TV show. The three were in Los Angeles filming the series today and were photographed around a lunch table together. We have no idea what exactly the show will be, especially considering that the only thing uniting these three is that fact that they were controversy lightening rods on “The Hills,” “The Bachelor,” and “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” respectively. Maybe they’ll team up to fight crime? Or perhaps this is a new-fangled “Three’s Company”? Or a porno? Your guess is as good as mine. But, gulp, we will be watching.
