When it comes to objective advice, sometimes friends can’t be trusted. This is especially true when the pals are dudes, and the topic is fashion. Now, style-challenged men can find direction with “Jack Knows Best,” J. Crew‘s new style consulting service.

The list of questions is quite informative, and admittedly, we didn’t know the answers to many of them. Not that we don’t know jack about men’s fashion, but when it comes to tuxes and ties, we ladies could stand to learn a thing or two as well. [J. Crew] Keep reading »

This time she and hubby René Angelil—who’s approximately eleventy-years-old (or 67, to be exact)—used an embryo that was frozen eight years ago. Celine’s doctor confirmed her pregnancy after the in-vitro fertilization, and said that when he told her, “I could hear her chuckling.” [PopEater] — Chuckling! How creepy is that? Keep reading »
documentary aired last night. My first instinct was to hide under the covers, shaking uncontrollably, and wait for it to be over, but I knew I had to watch for your sake. So I took out my earplugs, stripped off the sheets, and ventured out in front of my TV again. Of course it was as bad, maybe worse, than I thought. After the jump, the choicest moments from the two-hour crapfest “OctoMom: The Incredible Unseen Footage.” Keep reading »

Sarah Palin has some crafty supporters. Now that she’s out of the governor’s mansion, Palin is required to disclose a list of any gifts she received since December 1, 2008, worth more than $250. Some of the highlights:
