About four years ago, I was lucky enough to see Amy Winehouse perform at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom shortly after the release of her album Back To Black
in the U.S. She was amazing
. Her singing was top notch, her stage presence was utterly transfixing, and she was wild in a way where you knew if she kept it just reined in enough, she would go on to have a long and illustrious career. Well, we know what’s happened since. Amy is back to performing again, but video from a recent show in Brazil confirms to me that she’s still go a long way to go before she’s back on the right path. Yikes. Keep reading »
There are something in live that I would like to be witness to, but from a distance and with a pillow to cuddle for comfort and hide my face behind. According to Grazia (via Page Six), Jennifer Aniston recently had a “tearful” meeting with her new boyfriend’s ex. Aniston has been dating Justin Theroux for a few months now and the two are said to be serious, but Theroux was either just leaving or just recently out of an 11-year relationship with Heidi Bivens. Considering Aniston famously saw ex-husband Brad Pitt leave her for Angelina Jolie, it seemed strange that she would take-up with a guy who was already spoken for, and she has denied that there was any overlap. Alas, that is probably not of any comfort to Heidi, who is said to be heartbroken about the split.
So what went down on their little date? According to a source, ”Jen told Heidi that she understands what a painful time she has been going through and explained that she wanted her to know, hand on heart, that she would never steal another woman’s man. … Heidi apparently got quite tearful during the meeting, as it was understandably a lot of take in.”
Hmm, at first I was, like, “How dare Jennifer Aniston impose herself upon this woman to explain her side? The only person who should be explaining himself is Justin.” But then again, having been through a remarkably similar situation myself (my ex left our nearly 5-year relationship and immediately took up with another woman), I wouldn’t have minded hearing from my ex’s new chick. I was wondering what she was thinking anyway, why not get the truth (hopefully) from the horse’s mouth?
Regardless of how smoothly it went, talk about awkward. I do not envy Jennifer, Heidi, or any of the other celebs involved in awkward run-ins in this slideshow.
If you were scared of Pajama Jeans, be terrified of the Forever Lazy. This fleece onesie is not OK to wear in public or even around the house in my opinion, unless you are trying to look like an adult baby on purpose. Contrary to popular belief, blankets are not that complicated to use. Also, I refuse to undo the special zippered crotch hatch of my onesie to make a pee-pee. I am a big girl.

Uh, my celebrity soul mate, Stevie Nicks, is back. Her new album, In Your Dreams, is out in May. This single off the album, “Secret Love,” is a song she’s been working on since the ’70s. No wonder it sounds so Stevie-vintage-wonderful. I really want her to start wearing capes and feathers again. Now I need to know who her secret love is. [The Hairpin] Keep reading »
It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “Love Struck” who wrote just a couple a weeks ago wanting advice on how to pop the question to his girlfriend, a fan of The Frisky. After the jump, find out how the proposal went and whether he got the reply he was hoping for. Keep reading »
