Halle Berry‘s a big fan of the WNBA’s Sparks. The actress/good luck charm went to see her team score a victory last night. But clearly her magic extends beyond the screen, male models, and the court. Halle is bold enough to chow down on a large bucket of popcorn during bikini season and she can wear a black shirt without it even having a trace of deodorant. What a woman!

L.L. Bean is best known for outfitting New Englanders who enjoy outdoor activities like camping and who appreciate a simple “gets-the-job-done” look. In March, however, the Maine-based company will get a bit of a makeover: L.L. Bean has hired Alex Carleton, who founded Rogues Gallery and has previously designed for Ralph Lauren and Abercrombie & Fitch, as creative director. Carleton’s first order of business is L.L. Bean Signature, a collection of updated and more chic outdoorsy clothing. [NY Times]

But I decided to take a look at their clothing pre-makeover, and I actually found some items I’d totally wear. Here’s the best of what L.L. Bean has to offer if you’re looking for style above function. (Warning! Avoid the bottoms i.e. pants, skirts, skorts, etc.)

Celine Dion is pregnant again at age 41—which while, not impossible, is pretty hard to do. 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 »
FOX’s two-hour-OctoMom 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 »

By now you’ve seen eight episodes of the web comedy series “MERRIme.com,” — winner for Best Comedy at the ITVFest — and we hope you’re loving it as much as we are. “MERRIme.com”‘s protagonist is Merri Weisman, a twentysomething trust-fund baby who’s just been dumped by her fiancé.
