Beyonce tells Self that her dream of winning an Oscar is what keeps her in shape. She has a painting of the golden statue in her gym, she explains. “I look at it, and I’m like, OK, I have to stay in shape,” she said. I don’t get the connection between winning an Oscar and staying in shape. Jennifer Hudson proved that smaller sizes aren’t the ones winning Academy Awards. Maybe Beyonce was trying to take a dig at Hudson, who didn’t look her best when she won the Oscar for her role in “Dreamgirls,” which costarred Beyonce. Let’s face it, B. isn’t a great actress — she’s slightly better than mediocre — so she should probably give up her dream or at least stop talking about it. Her performances as a singer/dancer to be more entertaining. Saying her love of unitards forces her to stay in shape would have made more sense. [E! Online] Keep reading »
Bravo isn’t stupid. When they hit on a show that works, there is little deviation from the original formula. On last night’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey,” the gals from Jersey proved they were serious housewife material. I found five similarities between the Garden State cast and those from the OC, Atlanta, and NYC, but, trust me, these women fit Bravo’s “Housewives”-bot mold perfectly. Here’s why … Keep reading »
Fabulous clothes are as ubiquitous in Hollywood as headbands are on Blair Waldorf’s head. But Rachel Bilson has serious style — a lil’ somethin’ somethin’ above the norm. That’s why we’re bummed to hear that a robber broke into her L.A. home while she was on vacation and swiped a whole bunch of her jewelry and designer clothing, “including a trove of vintage shoes and her Chanel collection.”
Our condolences to Rachel, but how do we say this? This robber is after our own hearts. We would never go as far as breaking and entering, but we’ve definitely lusted after some of her recent drool-worthy outfits, like that teal dress. Here’s what we would have ganked had we been this thief. Keep reading »

Her slit rides higher than her career as she hits the red carpet for the premiere of hubby Brad Pitt’s new flick, “Inglorious Basterds.” Let’s face it: The peeps weren’t there for the movie — they came to see a leg show! [5/20/09, Cannes] Keep reading »
Manskirts. We noticed the craze last year when Marc Jacobs started wearing kilts, but this fashion trend for men has stood the test of time. Skirting gender issues still has some haters — just ask the man currently suing the New Orleans Police Department for $1 for his right to wear a manskirt. Clearly, the times and the styles, they are a’ changin’. Now that the manskirt has gone high fashion, we decided to take a stroll down memory lane and see who’s responsible for men showing some leg.

Is it “Hate on Michelle Obama” week? Supermodel Iman told Parade Mrs. O is “no great beauty.” Now, comic Jay Mohr is adding his two cents. During a call-in on “The Jim Rome Show” on ESPN, he went off on a mean-spirited monologue about the First Lady. Keep reading »
When Rachel Bilson was out of town, her LA home was burgled. The thief raided the star’s closet, taking designer clothes, shoes, handbags, and jewelry, including items given to her by her grandmother. While the loss of her Chanel collection unfortunate, it’s the stealing of the jewelry that Rachel’s grandmother gave her that’s most heart-wrenching; it can’t be replaced.
That got me thinking: What clothing or accessory would I be most upset about if it got stolen? It would probably be a bracelet my parents gave me. While the item could be replaed, I would always know that it wasn’t the one they gave me. Keep reading »

Who will he marry?” Archie editor Victor Gorelick says his office is on lockdown until the revealing issue comes out in August, but let me go ahead and spoil this for you. Keep reading »
Hayden Panettiere has been showing off a new tattoo on her torso, but the tattoo, which reads “vivere senza rimipianti” (“to live without regrets”), is misspelled. Her “rimpianti” has an extra “i” in it. Now, we’re guessing Hayden has at least one regret. She isn’t the only celebrity who has a tattoo gone wrong. Thankfully, my Arabic tattoo says exactly what I wanted it to. More tattoo mishaps after the jump.
