Knowd: Simply Irresistible
We just can’t get enough of James Franco! And surprisingly enough, we want the recent Daily Hotness stud for more than just his body — we actually love the James Dean look-a-like for his mind too. Sure his smarts and self-depreciating humor are like icing on a cake (umm, a delicious, super talented cake filled with good looks and and big screen street cred), but we’ve been loving the short films that Franco made with his brother on Funny or Die. In the above web-isode, produced by Pinapple Express‘ Judd Apatow, James teaches his brother Dave to cry on camera by drawing on a memory of his first pet, a cat who was put to sleep. And check out just how great his genes are in this response tape by his equally adorable and hilarious mom. Keep reading »
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants was released in theaters today, and this time around the women have been apart all year, but their summer plans will keep them separated. According to the film’s website, “Now it will take more than a hurried note…or even a treasured pair of pants passed back and forth among them to keep their lives connected.” But this got me thinking…Do friendship groups like The Sisterhood and Sex and the City, in which all the friends get along and are connected equally, exist in reality? In my experience, the answer is a resounding, “No.” Keep reading »
Get your hot little hands on these new presidential candidate paper dolls, and you’ll be the envy of all your registered-voter friends. You know how most paper dolls start off in their undies? We’re wondering whether McCain and Obama are depicted wearing boxers or briefs in their doll version.
Each book costs $7.99 and features 32 pages of paper dolls and outfits printed in the U.S. on recycled paper. The Obama Paper Dolls book features Barack, Michelle, and their two daughters, along with various changes of clothes actually worn by the couple on the campaign trail. The McCain Paper Dolls book includes doll versions of John and Cindy with an assortment of outfits, including Cindy’s wedding dress, but doesn’t include John’s kids Meghan, Bridget, Doug, Jack, Jimmy, and Andy — maybe because his offspring are older, or because some are from earlier marriages or adopted, or because none of them is as cute as Malia and Natasha?

Last night I was on “Showbiz Tonight” discussing Tyra Banks’ Bazaar cover, and the photo shoot within the magazine in which she dresses up as Michelle Obama. The shoot is not a fashion spread — i.e. there’s no “10 Looks Michelle Obama Will Need As A First Lady, As Worn By Model Tyra Banks” — and the interview accompanying the images isn’t really serious in nature, though Tyra does say that her Secret Service code-name would be “Kiss My Fat Ass”. Rather, it seems like Bazaar is trying to cash in on the Obama craze in any way they can, since they apparently couldn’t get the real woman to do a shoot with them. (By the way, I predict Michelle will be in Vogue, instead!) As for Tyra? Well, this is hardly the first cuh-razy stunt the talk show host has pulled. After all, Ty-Ty seems to feel like the world is The Tyra Show, and we’re all just lucky to get out alive. After the jump, six other classically nutty and self-absorbed “All About Tyra” moments.
Looks like Lorenzo isn’t the only renegade in the Lamas family. His daughter, Shayne, has run off with a 2.65 carat engagement rock. Shayne made a name for herself as a contestant on The Bachelor: London Calling. The wannabe actress won the heart of the bachelor from Britain, who infamously proposed to her by asking, “Monkey, will you marry me?” Well, rumor has it Shayne has been monkeying around in Las Vegas with media magnate Justin Weneger. And another couple TV made has gone sadly, yet predictably, splitsville. Since the engagement was broken, Matt Grant, who is now a bachelor again, wants the diamond and platinum engagement ring back. But Shayne is refusing to hand it over. Well, at least the girl has got balls as big as the rock! We’ve written about the etiquette during this situation before, but are dying for your opinion — would you still keep the ring bling? [Tango] Keep reading »
Remember how Amelia got all excited about the new Quiksilver women’s collection? Well, it’s finally available! The clothes make me want to go back-to-school shopping (back-to-work shopping? Fall wardrobe shopping? We need a new name for this). I can see myself wearing the first dress with just a vintage belt until it gets cooler, then layering with a shirt underneath and cardigan on top after the first frost. I am also into the Nora Tank. Would it be wrong to own a dress and a tank made from the same fabric?
P.S. I got a sneak preview of Quiksilver’s holiday collection yesterday, which comes out in September, and it is equally cute. Keep reading »
In case you haven’t heard, Playgirl magazine folded. It was announced earlier this week that the brand would live online but with more photos and videos and less actual editorial content. Basically, the visual aspect of the magazine, the pornier stuff, rather than any articles. Personally, I never went to the store and bought the magazine, and I wonder how many women are upset about its closing, or even care.
Magazines in general are having trouble these days, because they have to compete with both other magazines and the online world for advertisers. Even magazines we thought were really great have closed in the last couple years (RIP Jane), so it’s not surprising that another magazine would go, especially one that has had a hard time figuring out where it fits into the marketplace over the last couple years, as former Playgirl editor (and Frisky contributor!) Colleen Kane writes was the case. Keep reading »
