Salma Hayek-Pinault and her adorable daughter, Valentina, were photographed taking a stroll on a beach in St. Barts. But what I found interesting is that 3-year-old Valentina still sucks on a pacifier. Now, I have never read a parenting book and don’t have any children, but I thought that most parents would try to wean their little one off the pacifier by the age of 3. If Valentina was old enough to understand that her last name was different from her mother’s, isn’t she too old for a pacifier? Shouldn’t parents try to teach their children to calm themselves without the use of a device by that age? So what say you, Frisky parents? When should a child give up the pacifier? Keep reading »

We are officially jealous of Reese Witherspoon. We’re getting information on the ring Jim Toth offered her and damn, is it awesome. The timeless design by William Goldberg features a square-cut 4-karat diamond and pave diamond band. While the diamond may look standard, it’s anything but. Apparently the cut was inspired by a diamond once owned by the Indian Buddhist warrior and emperor Ashoka Maruya. According to Glam Chic: “The stone has 62 displayed facets and rounded corners, which creates more sparkle and fire than most traditional cuts.” No word on how much it’s worth … but you can bet that it cost more than a pretty penny.

I was never one of those little girls who begged God to give her boobs. If anything, I desperately wanted them to stop growing. By the time I hit middle school, I was strapping them down into a sports bra that made it look I had a uni-boob around my chest like a tire. I was never psyched that I had big breasts. I liked wearing little boys’ T-shirts with overalls in high school and I remember looking down one day and thinking that I just wanted to be a little girl again—I didn’t want the body of a woman. I couldn’t get dressed without looking either matronly or slutty. There wasn’t really an in-between for me and my boobs. By the time I was 25, they were a 34G. Keep reading »
Congratulations, you made it through another holiday season. But you’re so broke you’ll be stuck at home eating ramen noodles until April! Never fear, actress and crafting extraordinaire Amy Sedaris won’t let those hands get idle. Simple Times: Crafts For Poor People, a belly-achingly hilarious tome of super-easy crafts and recipes, is a follow-up to her amazing book, I Like You: Hospitality Under The Influence. In both books, the uber-creative Sedaris proves you need panache — not cash! — to entertain and be entertaining. In Simple Times, Sedaris will teach you how to make homemade sausage, cilantro treats for a pet rabbit, and seashell toilet seat covers. When you finally dig yourself out of credit card debt, you’ll be a total crafting diva. Being broke never looked more fun.
In November, we reported that the ladies of “Teen Mom” make $60K to $65K per season, which comes out to about $5,000 per episode. We argued that this was chump change in comparison to the alleged $80K Lauren Conrad made per episode in her final days on “The Hills.” But apparently, our numbers may have been waaaay off. Amber Portwood was released from jail yesterday on charges of domestic violence and had to report to a judge. This judge supposedly ordered her to reveal her salary. She said $280,000! Which is about $215K more than we had thought. Keep reading »
