Season two of “The Rachel Zoe Project” premiered last night, confirming something I’d often felt throughout season one: I heart Taylor.
In case you’re not on a first-name basis with her, Taylor Jacobson is a styling associate who works for Rachel Zoe. She is part of the Brad-Taylor dynamic duo that helps Rachel dress clients for movie premieres, award shows, and more. With her messy blond hair that covers half her face more than half the time and stacked gold bracelets and a chunky watch on her wrist, Taylor is rock ‘n’ roll, and she has a bad attitude to match. When I confessed my girl crush on Taylor to a friend, he said, “I’m sorry, all she does is complain.” But that’s part of why I like her. Keep reading »
It seems MTV host Alexa Chung has gone off the deep end. Why? Maybe it was getting groped by Trinny and Susannah that did it. [NYC, 8/24/09] Keep reading »
I can’t eat, I can’t sleep—I am overcome with heartbreak knowing that the man of my dreams is off the market. This unemployed father of seven children by seven baby mamas is preparing for a shotgun wedding to the eighth! Being single is hard, and when I think of the kind of guy I’m looking for, I know that Brit Keith MacDonald embodies all of the qualities that I dream of. I only ask myself why I couldn’t have met him before his fiancée, 20-year-old Claire Bryant? The story is sooo romantic. Check out the swoon-worthy details after the jump. Keep reading »
Perhaps not quite as exciting as a leaked celeb sex tape but titillating nonetheless, email exchanges between “The Bachelorette”‘s Ed Swiderski and the two women he allegedly had relationships with, through (and after) the taping of the show, have been leaked all over the internet (you can read the full exchange here). In the emails, Swiderski shows his romantic side, saying sweet things to Lindsey Johnson and Bethany Steffen like, “I’m going to molest you when I get home.” Apparently, he promised both girls he’d only be gone for two weeks and when two weeks came and went and he was still taping the show, he emailed Lindsey: “Trying to leave tomorrow … hopefully I can pull it off.” Of course, as any avid viewer knows, he did indeed “pull off” going home early — citing work obligations as his excuse — only to return to the show a week or so later. The rumor is he slept with Lindsey while he was away from the show.
By all accounts, bachelorette Jillian Harris is standing by her man (Ed proposed on the final episode and she accepted). She repeatedly laughs off all allegations, saying: “None of it’s true, Ed’s told me about both women, I trust him, and that’s all you need to know.” But who’s buying it? Surely there must be some reason that she’s sticking with Ed and not dumping his ass faster than you can say “Loser!” As it turns out, there is a reason she’d want to keep up appearances that they’re still a couple — and it has nothing to do with love.

Someone wanted to be on top of Marilyn Monroe really, really badly. Earlier this month, the crypt above Marilyn was emptied out to make room for a new “resident.” The grave space was auctioned off on eBay, and it’s sold for a modest … $4.6 million. In my opinion, that’s too much money to kick it with someone who is already dead, but apparently others didn’t share my sentiments. The spot in Los Angeles’ Westwood Village Memorial Park got 21 bids. I wonder if the winner of the spot in LA knows they have to share Marilyn with Hugh Hefner, who has dibs on the vault next to her.

Think arts and crafts projects are all about camp activities and innocent fun? French artist Marianne Batlle causes us to think again. While her handmade beaded broaches are super crafty, they also channel the world of haute couture with portraits of cute Coco Chanels with signature pearls, cartoonish Karl Lagerfelds, and a flamboyant John Galliano.
Things get weirder with Batlle’s other objets d’art, which involve some equally crafty, um, crocheted penises. While she makes some tamer Christmas-themed sculptures (a fuzzy red penis with a green bow), on Batlle’s website there’s a whole animated fashion show of penis dolls conceived in different themes like Chanel, “Bora Bora” (blue with an exotic purple flower), and “How to Marry a Millionaire,” which is a gold and silver phallus. Who would buy these, you ask? No clue. But if you’re dying for a look, check after the jump for a picture of one of the concept pieces. [CoolHunting.com]

In case you couldn’t make it down to the ATL for the Bronner Bros. International Hair Show last weekend, Black Voices has an eye-popping slide show of the craziest hairdos that you have ever seen. “The more outrageous, the better,” indeed. NASCAR racetrack hair! A Michael-Jackson-shaved-into-the-back-of-the-scalp fade! And something that looks like a banana plant. [Black Voices] Keep reading »
Hells yeah! MTV is developing a U.S. version of the popular British show “Skins.” If you’ve never seen “Skins” before, I hereby order you to add it to your Netflix queue. Oft-compared to “Degrassi,” I say “Skins” is the absolute best TV show about teenagers that I’ve ever seen. And not campy good, like “Gossip Girl,” but really good. Keep reading »
