Best Bosses In Hollywood

Add another tick to the list of why Oprah is the best human ever. The media giant is taking all 100 employees from her TV production company, Harpo, plus their families, on a 10-day cruise around the Mediterranean. Four years ago, she brought all of her staff to Hawaii and this year they’re headed to Italy, Turkey, Greece, and Malta. Lucky! As if working for Oprah wasn’t already cool enough, the free trips are definitely the cherry on top. [Daily Mail]

After the jump, three more celebrities who give their staff jealousy-inducing perks: Keep reading »

Doggie Style: Accessories That Keep Your Pup Sane

Dogs are always in style, so I wasn’t surprised to see a hip pooch chilling at a party I attended last weekend. I was a bit surprised that the dog donned a cape, but I was even more surprised when the owner told me the cape was less about fashion and more for psychological reasons. In the age of Burberry dog coats and Louis Vuitton dog collars, a pooch in fancy threads barely merits recognition. A dog in a cape to ease his canine anxiety? Now that’s a trendsetter.

Turns out there is a whole new booming industry of doggie clothing and accessories to help ease your pup’s state of mind without therapy. Here’s what we found… Keep reading »

Please Don’t Tell Me How Great You Are

A long time ago, right before I met the man who would become my husband, I dated a guy named Gary,* a new-age rocket scientist who excelled in many things, including the art of self-promotion.

I remember that cold February night, a week before Valentine’s Day, when we were driving in his car. He had played his guitar and sung songs at his church that day and was giving me the post-mortem on his performance. Keep reading »

The Pale Girl’s Guide To Summer Travel

I am not a vampire, though my reactions to the sun might make you think otherwise. Tragically, I have a mild allergy to the sun, so beach holidays aren’t really my thing. I tried to fight the fates for a while and burned and blistered my way through the Caribbean and Miami. But after my last hospitalization in a remote Mexican hospital run by old-school nuns and with chickens running about, I decided to embrace my paleness and flock to find others of my kind. Due to all the hoopla about bikinis, beach hair and self-tanner, I neglected the possibility of locales that didn’t require a beach bod or SPF-100—until now. Here are a bunch of locations so fabulous even sun-lovers might be tempted to grab their umbrellas and galoshes. Keep reading »

Unfair Treatment Of Women In Domestic Violence Cases?

For some 20 years, campaigners have argued that courtrooms don’t treat men and woman equally when it comes to domestic violence homicides. According to them, “Judges have been known to express sympathy for men who claim they were nagged or cheated on by female partners, but often appear to have little for women who kill after being raped by their partners or experiencing domestic violence.”

Brad Pitt Keeps Baby Brother Doug From Congress

The National Enquirer would like us to believe that Brad Pitt snubbed out his younger brother Doug Pitt’s political career by urging him not to run for Missouri Congress, even though he probably would have won the election. Apparently, Brad and Doug work on community charity projects together and if his Republican brother took a seat, their efforts would not only reek of “political cronyism,” and Brad would lose his most trusted confidant. Plus, he was hoping to use Doug’s business smarts in his film production company?

Blah, blah, blah. The important thing is—Brad Pitt has a brother! Why weren’t we already stalking him?! Check him out in the clip above—it’s not particularly exciting, but hey, it’s all we could find. Sure, he’s a Republican, but they can be hot, too. He looks more like Zach Braff than Brad, but he’s got Pitt genes buried deep inside him and we must get them out and make clones. Baby Pitts for everyone! [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
