Quick Pic: Something’s Missing From Gaga’s “Outfit”

How many times do we have to say: “If it’s cold enough for a chimp fur-looking coat, then it’s too cold to go without pants.”? We’re rather disappointed that Lady Gaga wore this to the Much Music Video Awards. Hmm, her date to the event was Perez Hilton — maybe this is why he got beat up? [Toronto, 6/21/09] Keep reading »

Lindsay Lohan And Ryan Seacrest’s New Reality TV Show?

“American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest met with hot mess Lindsay Lohan last Thursday in Hollywood. So, is LiLo turning straight again? Well, we don’t know, but this meeting with Ryan was no hot date. The two are planning to do a reality TV show together. Lindsay tweeted about the project saying it will be, “Something meaningful like Extreme Home Makeover on ABC.” [US Magazine] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: How Much Do Boyfriends And Best Friends Really Need To Get Along?

I love my best friend, I love my boyfriend. These two people who hold such special places in my heart should love each other like I love them. In theory, if I have enough in common with both of them to have such a strong bond with each, shouldn’t the two of them also have the potential to form a real relationship with each other? It should be an all out love fest whenever the three of us get together…except it’s not. ‘Tis sad but true, my best friend and boyfriend do not quite get along. If I am honest with myself, I could have easily foreseen this. All they have in common with each other is me. Keep reading »

The Power Plate And Other Fast-Dying Fitness Crazes

No, that’s not a super-charged scale on steroids. It’s the Power Plate, a vibrating platform, that is taking the celebrity fitness world by storm. Heidi Klum, Clint Eastwood, George Clooney, Sean Combs, and Madonna have been reportedly getting sleek physiques by squatting and pressing atop this vibrating plate. Experts say the Power Plate stimulates the neurological system, improves flexibility, and reduces muscle soreness. Now I’m all for a more effective, less strenuous workout, but I’m rather skeptical about any fitness technique celebs obsess over because usually it’s a bunch of crap or just a product endorsement. Plus, at a price range of about $2,000 to $10,500, I’d rather take my vibrations lying down. Click through for the other fitness crazes that Hollywood embraced only to abandon rather quickly.

Would You Sell Your Body To Make Ends Meet?

If times were tough — I mean, really tough — would you sell your body for money? In her Salon column “Pinched,” Tracy Clark-Flory reports that more women are entering the sex industry due the recession, including Marie, a 30-year-old former white-collar professional with a degree, who now operates out of hotel room and has “been paid more times than she can count, or cares to count, for sex, blow jobs, hand jobs and sensual massage.”

We already knew that sex still sells during a recession — sex toy sales are up, lingerie sales are booming, and sex workers — from prostitutes to strippers — aren’t being as adversely effected by the economic downturn as other businesses. But otherwise professional women who never considered a career in sex work suddenly taking it all off to make ends meet? Is this really a trend? Keep reading »

Do You Have To Go Online To Get A Date?

A guy friend told me last month that despite his ability to meet women when he’s out, he has several online dating profiles. He, like some of my other friends, suggested I set up an account on Match.com or its equivalent now that I’ve reentered the dating scene after several years.

When I gave him the same line I’d given other people—“I don’t think I need to”—he said, quite matter-of-factly, “Everybody needs to. It’s just how things are going to be now.” Keep reading »

Reps for Bundchen refuse to comment, though.

Tongues have wagged for awhile over what looked like a baby bump. Will Tom Brady and Gisele confirm, or keep us guessing?

What We Think Jon And Kate’s Announcement Will Be

By now, you’ve probably seen the promo for tonight’s “special episode” of “Jon & Kate Plus 8″ approximately 98 times. If you’re one who likes to jump to conclusions, you’re probably assuming that the big announcement the commercial teases is that Jon and Kate are getting divorced. But I’m not so convinced—they’ll probably drag out that drama for another eon or so. After the jump, my best guesses at what this big announcement could be: Keep reading »

Rihanna And Chris Brown Take It To The Court Room

The preliminary hearing for the Chris Brown and Rihanna drama will take place today in a Los Angeles courtroom, to determine whether there’s enough evidence for the case to go to trial. Contrary to what all you “Law & Order” fans think, there are not usually any big, jaw-dropping surprises in court. Everyone involved usually has a pretty good idea of what’s going to happen. So, to save you from all the suspense, here’s what to expect. Keep reading »

In Russia, The Po-Po Is Brad Pitt

File this one in the “are you kidding me” bin: I’m not completely believing the Jalopnik and AP story, but apparently, local traffic cops in Omsk, Russia, are wearing cardboard cutouts of Brad Pitt over their faces as a way of getting motorists to slow down and obey traffic laws—and it’s working! Can you imagine? You’re pulling an illegal U-turn and you see Mr. Fight Club himself staring you down from across the street? I think NYC traffic cops should don Bradley Cooper masks. I’d pull over. [Jalopnik and AP ] Keep reading »
