Wendy Williams is a longtime “friend in my head” — that’s what she calls celebs that she knows about, but doesn’t actually know — because, as a radio, talk show host, and author, Wendy gets to say a lot of the things I think, but can’t actually say. She dishes on everything from relationships and celebs to even her own private life. But she’s not another wannabe attention whore willing to do anything. Her mere presence can have someone with something to hide quaking in their shoes, but she’s quite hysterical when she’s over-sharing details from her life. We’ll be glued to our TV set when “The Wendy Williams Show” premieres July 13. Keep reading »
I was intrigued by the amount of interest and opinions voiced in last week’s posts about height, which led me to think that there was more on this topic than is usually discussed. When I think about height, it is usually in terms of style. As the fashion industry tends to favor the long of limb, I am not always thrilled by my lack of inches. What I found particularly interesting was that most of you who said you were short did so with pride and without fashion phobias. Clearly I was not on the same page as everyone else, so I began talking to women in all ranges of the height spectrum to see how they felt about their height and why. The results were staggering: women viewed height in the context of power and politics. Keep reading »

A recent New York Times article stated that for every step fashion step forward, fashion took three steps back. This theory got me thinking, is it true that every new trend is actually a revamped version of trends past? While there is certainly no lack of innovation in fashion, very few styles are completely fresh and unseen. Even the most outrageous shapes and lines have often been seen before, possibly centuries before. Don’t believe me? Don’t those Grecian dresses look familiar? Haven’t you seen Oxford shoes in some period movie? Aren’t corseted women in every museum around the world? Oh yes, every runway show has at least a few items that harken back to the good old days. Taking inspiration from the past is hardly a minus on the creativity scale, as long as the styles are not taken too literally. Rather, I take comfort from the fact that I can predict the fashion future. With the arrival of a new decade, new president, new economic climate, etc., there are bound to be dramatic shifts in style. Instead of blindly stumbling into the fashion of a new era and decade, I have taken a cheeky peak into my fashion fortune telling ball to study the secrets of the fashion future inspired by the fashion past. Read what trends from olden days will make big come back after the jump. Keep reading »

“Today” spoke with Sarah Palin while she was on a fishing trip in a remote village in Alaska just three days after her strange and sudden resignation. She said that after she was tapped to run for VP last August, everything changed. Now, Palin is sick of playing political games. Will she run for president in 2012? “I don’t know what the future holds,” She said. “You can’t predict what the next fish run’s going to look like, much less what’s going to happen in the next couple of years. My focus is on my state still, and it always will be. And my family and what is best for them.” So, that’s not a no? Keep reading »
On last night’s episode of “The Bachelorette,” Jillian Harris finally kicked Wes Hayden to the curb, after realizing what the rest of the universe already knew — that he had come on the show, despite having a girlfriend, solely to publicize his music career.
