The good ol’ electronic hearth is serving up a hefty portion of girl-tastic shows this week. Tonight, after “The Bachelorette,” of course, check out “Dating in the Dark.” We also have high hopes for ABC’s new teen music sitcom “Ruby & The Rockits,” which looks like it owes more than a little to “Hannah Montana.” The creepily watchable “Toddlers and Tiaras” also starts this week. And then there’s the season finale of “Southern Belles: Louisville.” Awww, television.

Clearly, SamRo has a type: strawberry blonde actresses whose names rhyme with hers. The DJ took “Sopranos” star Drea de Matteo out for a fancy dinner at Nobu last night. That’s a little bit better than the cheap burritos she lunched on with Lindsay last week. [Malibu, 7/19/09] Keep reading »
We’re going to have to say yes. Sure reigning champs like Manolo and Jimmy aren’t about to be knocked off their thrones anytime soon, but Parisian Raphael Young is poised to give them a run for their money (heh). Young is a Korean born, French-raised designer who’s already gaining a cult following among fashionistas, especially in Europe and Asia. Like say, Christian Louboutin, his shoes designs are pure fantasy meets reality (as in, they’re totally wearable works of art), and he’s known for incorporating a mix of luxurious materials–like crocodile and patent leather–to create shoes that are stunningly sexy. But Young’s shoes go a step further (can’t resist!) by featuring whimsical, unexpected details like metal coils or curved wood pegs as heels. His shoes recently became available stateside at a handful of boutiques in NYC (Seven and Eva), but with an established name abroad and a rising profile in America, it’s only a matter of time before we start seeing Young everywhere. Check out more designs on his site. [Raphael Young] Keep reading »
Chris Brown—you know, the guy who got his wrist slapped for beating the crap out of Rihanna earlier this year — just released a video on his You Tube page where he apologizes for “the incident,” as he calls it.
He makes lots of references to his mom and his spiritual teachers and how he grew up in a home with domestic violence. Sorry, but it’s still too little, too late, for me. What about you? Keep reading »
It’s well known amongst my friends that I can pee, only to need to pee again. I live by the “Sit Or Squat” application on my iPhone that tells me the nearest location of public restrooms. In the month or so since “Sit Or Squat” has been on my phone, I’ve utilized it more than any other app. And now I’ve come across the next best application: “RunPee!” The app lets you know exactly when you’re clear to head to the restroom during a movie without missing a major plot point. Along with the time, “RunPee” provides a description of what will be going on in the scene, so you know it’s definitely the right moment to, well, run ‘n’ pee. Plus, they have a write up of what you’re going to miss while away from the screen. Perfect reading material while you’re in the loo! This just skyrocketed on my list of must-get apps.

There must really be a man shortage in Utah because some women have resorted to dire measures to find husbands. Take, for instance, sisters Katie and Priscilla Churcher, who are both married to Travis. All three were raised as Fundamentalist Mormons, a splinter group of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints that practices polygamy. Katie was married to Travis first, but after a few years, he began to woo Priscilla, who eventually fell in love with him. Although polygamy is illegal, the three spouses share a home, with each of the wives having their own room that Travis alternates between. And there’s no sibling rivalry! The sisters say their marriage is perfect for their personal lives because it gives each of them more time with friends and they always have a babysitter. [Lemondrop] Keep reading »
