Okay, I’m starting to feel like the “Kennedy Curse” might actually be real. I think we should just leave the living Kennedys alone and let the deceased ones rest in peace. We all have heard ad nauseum about all of John F. Kennedy’s alleged affairs—mostly notoriously with Marilyn Monroe—but a new book by C. David Heymann, Bobby and Jackie: A Love Story, is making some outrageous claims that Jackie Kennedy was knocking boots with Robert F. Kennedy after JFK’s death. Keep reading »
It’s hard to look all darling when you’re freaking baking inside a worrisomely hot car and not say, chillaxin’ in the breezy Bahamas. Somehow, our style icon-o-the-day, indie fashion maven Zooey Deschanel, makes toasty weather chic look easy and reminds us of cotton candy, photo booths, lounge chairs, and that sweet, sweet patio water mister we’re saving up for. Luckily, these cute shoes are cool and way cheaper. Keep reading »
Happy 40th Anniversary, Woodstock! Can you believe it’s been so long since a bunch of hippies got together for some amazing music that inspired a whole counter-culture movement? Feels like we could use a little bit of that idealism, love, and enthusiasm these days—though we can probably do without all the psychedelics and armpit hair. When I think of Woodstock, one iconic image pops into my mind—the picture of that cute couple wrapped in the blanket, lovingly embracing each other amidst the crowd. The photo was on the cover of the album and the poster of “Woodstock,” the movie. Well…guess what? The couple in that photograph is still together and happily married after all these years! OMG, I think I just squealed out loud. Keep reading »
There are many old adages that say guys don’t like girls who wear glasses, that having four eyes is simply not attractive, and that nerds get no play. New Zealand photographer/illustrator Kelly Thompson proves everyone wrong with her mixed media exhibit “Bookworms Never Go To Bed Alone,” on display at the Gorker Gallery in Melbourne, Australia. Even if you think geeks who spend their free time at the library reading books their teachers didn’t assign them are total losers, Thompson’s artwork will send you straight to the stacks — and Cohen’s Fashion Optical.

I’m sure your vagina is impressive, but can it lift 31 lbs? Russian mom, Tatiata Kozhevnikova, 42, was feelin’ a little loosey-goosey after giving birth. Instead of just doing kegels like the rest of us, she decided to challenge herself and become a below-the-belt strong woman.
Tatiana read up on the ancient Dao practice of using a small wooden exercise ball to flex the muscles in your hoo-ha. So, she grabbed one of her favorite knick-knacks, a Murano glass ball, off the shelf and dunked it in her hoop. Now, that’s a crafty way to get your husband to stop complaining about your costly tchotchke clutter! But unfortunately, it sorta got lost up there. “It took me ages to get it out!” Tatiana said. We hope she was exaggerating. Keep reading »
…And looks adorable doing it. She seemed to be enjoying a family day with mom Halle Berry and dad Gabriel Aubrey until they were so rudely interrupted. [Miami Beach, 7/7/09] Keep reading »
A California 7th grader is fighting for her right to…wear a T-shirt. Anna Amador is representing her daughter in the lawsuit against McSwain Elementary School after her daughter was forced to take off her pro-life T-shirt back in April 2008. Celebrating “National Pro-Life T-shirt Day”—which I didn’t even know existed—the girl sported a graphic (pun!) tee with two pictures of a fetus followed by a square of black, along with the words, “Abortion. Growing, Growing, Gone.” Definitely a strong statement, but was it disruptive enough for the school to shirt-shame her and force a wardrobe change? Keep reading »
You know how there’s that certain type of guy you want to dramatically douse in a glass of red wine, just to wipe the smug look off his face for a split-second? That’s how I felt last night watching Wes Hayden’s behavior on “The Bachelorette,” when he realized Jillian Harris was on to his cheating, publicity-hungry ways. As if telling the guys, “If [I'm voted off], I’m gonna go home and have lots of sex,” wasn’t gross enough, on his limo ride out of Barcelona, he bragged, “I’m the first guy on the ‘Bachelorette’ to make it to the final four…with a girlfriend.” Ding, ding, ding! Wes, you’ve just one a million dollars! Wait, no, that’s not how this show works. Hello, smart guy. Guess who watches the “The Bachelorette”? Women. And more specifically, women who’re rooting for the single person in the driver’s seat to not only find love, but have it last for more than 10 seconds. In other words, if anything, this was a pretty bad career move for an aspiring country musician. “Bachelorette” fans aren’t going to listen to this reality TV villain’s music. Just like no one’s going to buy Spencer Pratt’s rap album.
Okay, rant over. But last night’s “Bachelorette” got me thinking—are reality dating shows intrinsically broken? Keep reading »
