While the world anxiously awaits tomorrow’s Oscar nomination announcements, the Razzies understand that the suspense is just too much for us to bear. And so they have announced their nominees for the worst movies of 2010. Battling it out in the the Worst Picture category are: “The Bounty Hunter,” “The Last Airbender,” “Sex and the City 2,” “Vampires Suck,” and “Twilight: Eclipse,” which, for the record, I think was significantly less terrible than the aforementioned four. For Worst Actor, Jack Black, Gerard Butler, Ashton Kutcher, Taylor Lautner, and Robert Pattinson all got headshakes. (I choose that word because it is basically the opposite of ‘nod.’) Worst Actress will go to Jennifer Aniston, Miley Cyrus, Megan Fox, Kristen Stewart, or the “SATC 2″ foursome. Also fascinating: Jessica Alba is quadruple nominated in the Worst Supporting Actress category.
The Razzie Awards will go down on February 26. So will Jessica, Jennifer, Gerard, or Robert make an appearance to accept their award in person? We can only hope. To encourage them to embrace this dishonor, a look at other stars who accepted their Razzies on camera. Keep reading »
A New York City councilman will introduce a law next week that would grant pregnant women special parking privileges. Women who are having difficult pregnancies that create mobility problems could get a doctor’s note entitling them to park in no-parking or no-standing zones, without fear of getting a ticket, up to 30 days after their due date. Councilman David Greenfield of Brooklyn said the pregnancy perk idea came after seeing his wife struggle while pregnant. “If I’m on a train and a pregnant woman walks in, I stand up and offer her my seat,” Greenfield told The New York Daily News. “I consider this legislation to be the same thing — standing up on the City Council for women who have difficult pregnancies.” Aww, that’s kinda sweet.

“I love the smell of [soiled] nappies … Fatherhood is fantastic … It’s been the most wonderful thing that’s happened to me after meeting David. This little soul that you’re feeding, changing, bathing and telling bedtime stories to is a blank canvas. And all it needs is love and nurturing. When he gets to talking and running around, I will probably feel a little different.”
– Elton John on fatherhood. Very sweet except for the liking the smell of dirty diapers part. He and Sarah Jessica Parker should get together and discuss the exhilaration of sniffing baby excrement so that we don’t have to hear about it. [Daily Mail U.K.] 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 “Righteous” who wondered if it would be appropriate or simply “stirring up old history” if she were to apologize to an ex with whom she caused an ugly breakup. After the jump, find out whether she apologized to the guy and how she’s doing today. Plus, I’ve got some exciting news of my own I want to share, so keep reading. Keep reading »
Here’s a reason to heart your morning coffee even more (as if you needed one). A new study says that caffeine may be a lady’s little helper in times of stress. When adequately caffeinated with a cup o’ joe, researchers found that women had better memory, focus, and an increased ability to work in groups, while that same amount of caffeine had the opposite effect on men. Why? The theory is that men tend to be more aggressive in stressful group situations whereas women like to collaborate. Duh. No scientific proof is necessary that I am a better human being with my morning dose of caffeine. As if some study could come between me and my addiction. As far as the men go … bwahahahahha!
