So if that commercial for the Western Bacon Thickburger didn’t convince you, this advertisement surely will: Padma Lakshmi is really,really sexy. It’s for her jewelry line and was shot last spring by legendary fashion photographer, Steven Meisel. As is plenty obvious, Lakshmi is in the buff and “dressed” only in gold necklaces and gemstones from her collection. The ad will be featured in magazines this fall and will also be seen on her website, PadmaLakshmi.com. The jewels are sold online at Bergdorf Goodman stores nationwide. Nude model/designer not included. Do we like? [WWD]

“My mom started asking when I was 12, ‘Is there anything you want to tell me?’ I then told her I was bisexual. And she said, ‘You’re so trendy, but you are not bisexual, you are gay.’ She cut to the chase. What can I say?

Another day, another Gwyneth Paltrow GOOP edition chock-full of sage advice. This time she addresses the beauty realm, and here’s a synopsis of the tips: Make a body scrub by mixing Turbinado (that’s sugar that comes from the first pressing of the sugar cane), olive oil and coarsely ground coffee, the latter of which Miss Paltrow does not, repeat, does not ever drink. Soften skin with oatmeal and honey before rubbing it with aloe vera juice to reduce redness, and reduce puffy morning eyes by placing chilled spoons over your lids or use cotton pads soaked in cold milk. Prevent wrinkles by doing daily facial exercises like sticking your tongue out as far as you can while keeping your eyes wide for 30 seconds. Apply a boatload of coconut oil after a bath to goop up your skin, which we can assure you is the story behind her seriously oily legs on “Letterman” recently.
Okay, Goopy, let’s talk. Keep reading »
I’m so confused, y’all. Last night’s episode was all about the feud brewing between Sheree and Kim, and the one simmering between Kim, Lisa and NeNe. And I can’t tell who is lying, who’s acting extra for the cameras, and who really should be friends. After the jump, I recap what went down in The ATL when “The Real Housewives” tried to discuss their drama. Keep reading »
We’ve all either said it or heard it at least once after a breakup: “Let’s be friends.” But is it a good idea to remain friends with an ex? Is it even possible? Was Billy Crystal’s character in “When Harry Met Sally” right when he said, “Men and women can’t be friends because the sex part always gets in the way”? Keep reading »
Mazel tov to Bai Yun, a mommy panda bear at the San Diego Zoo who gave birth to a four-ounce panda cub on Wednesday morning. The baby’s gender will be unknown until the mama lets zoologists near her cub, who was the size of a stick of butter when born.
Bai Yun has given birth to a cub every two years since 1999. That is rare for endangered panda bears, since the lady bears are only in heat and ready for some sweet lovin’ for about 48 hours a year. With only 1,600 panda bears left on earth to begin with, a newborn baby panda is a big deal. (Especially if you’re obsessed.) Keep reading »
Heidi Montag debuted the Playboy cover that made her half a million dollars on the red carpet of the “G.I. Joe” premiere last night. The soon-to-hit-newsstands September issue of the magazine features “The Hills” star dressed in a white bikini, covered in mud with the bunny symbol traced on her stomach. This is the first of two issues upon which she’ll grace the front page. She did the shoot as a wedding present for the Spence.
Of course, since we’re talking about Speidi, there’s drama. Montag claims that inside the fold of the magazine, she held onto her good Christian values and refrained from posing completely nude. But other sources say she totally got nakey. So we’ll just have to wait a few more days until the official release to find out who’s telling the truth. [NY Post]
