Cooking Lessons From A…Supermodel?

Apparently, models do like to eat. And, newsflash, they also like to cook! (Well, not all models are ready and willing noshers, but anyway.) I wasn’t sure that I wanted to take kitchen tips from a girl that consumes not much more than water and air—c’mon, where’s the Paula Deen credibility? But when I heard who was hosting, I quickly changed my tune. It’s Sophie Dahl, and according to the UK’s The Sun, she’s going to be taking an “emotional look” at food by reminiscing over her food memories while she cooks up her own recipes. Is it just me or does Dahl seem a little bit like the anti-supermodel sometimes—she writes books, she cooks, and I would, like, totally want to be friends with her if we ever met.

The Next Generation Of Tell-All Books

Note to all the overbearing bosses out there: don’t piss off your assistants, or else they’ll write a thinly-veiled, scathing tell-all book about you and call it fiction. Years ago, we learned all about impossible-to-please Vogue powerhouse Anna Wintour after reading The Devil Wears Prada. Soon, we’ll know what it’s like to work for an overly-tan, washed-up celebrity publicist—Lizzie Grubman. Remember her? She ran over a group of people in her SUV and didn’t even try to brake? Well, anything that’s left of Lizzie’s credibility is about to be demolished by her former assistant, Robert Rave. Rave’s novel, Spin, documents the trials and tribulations of a young assistant working for a cocaine-snorting PR bitch who (shocker!) resembles Grubman. It comes out next month, and just because he’s calling it fiction doesn’t mean it won’t be filled with real-life experiences of Robert getting verbally abused. [Gawker]

Oh, but Robert is not the only insider letting the juicy details fly. Here is the next wave of celebrity tell-alls in the works. Keep reading »

Porn For People Who Are Blind

If we want to get turned on and don’t have a man around, we can put on a dirty movie, magazine, or “art” book. But what do blind people do? There are erotic audiobooks, but they’re mostly read without much emotion by a single person. Lud Romano saw that this market was under-served in erotic material and began producing recorded “plays.” Keep reading »

Bravo’s “Watch What Happens: Live” Premieres Tonight

Surprise! Bravo’s barely publicized “Watch What Happens: Live” premieres tonight. Since you probably haven’t heard about it, let me fill you in. Andy Cohen, Bravo’s Senior Vice President of Production and Programming—a.k.a, the guy who hosts all of the channel’s reunion shows—takes the reigns Thursdays at midnight for a live run down of his favorite weekly moments in pop culture. The half-hour show will include “Bravolebrities” and A-list guests, claims Bravo’s website. Honestly, this show sounds a lot like “The Soup” or “Best Week Ever,” only with our Bravo faves like Danielle Staub.

Where Are You On The Doomed Relationship Chart?

If your relationship made it past perfunctory intercourse, creeping malaise and ill-advised carnal deviance, congratulations—it isn’t doomed. Yet. You’ve still got two more weeks to go. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Soulja Boy’s Third Leg

Soulja Boy leaked this pic in an attempt to show what heat he’s packing. Really, someone just needed to brush their teeth and he was playing a practical joke. That tube of toothpaste was back on the counter in no time. [Ohnotheydidn’t] Keep reading »

Your Dream Fall Wardrobe (On the Cheap)

blk strpless dress 071509 jpg
It’s about 1,000 degrees out and the thought of putting on a coat is borderline terrifying, but today many retailers start rolling out next fall’s designer clothes. (Because what’s more fun than trying on cashmere sweaters when you’re drenched in sweat?) Preemptive though the timetable seems, we’ve got to admit that there are some gorgeous pieces to salivate over, consider blowing our rent on and then ultimately, back away from, slowly and sadly.

But when you do as much web browsing as we do, the cheapie versions of next season’s designer collections start jumping out at you, winking lasciviously and promising to look almost as good as the real thing. Like the Forever 21 cocktail dress above (right), which shares some of the Yves Saint Laurent dress’s tailoring influences. No, it’s not made of leather like the YSL, and you won’t cry tears of joy when it comes in the mail. But it will look bitchin’ with some bangles, ridiculous heels and a cropped motorcycle jacket and you’ll have enough money left over to, well, not be homeless.

The Top 5 Dating Red Flags (According To A Man)

To help women tackle the well-known problems they have in their relationships with men, there are a number of popular TV shows, Web sites, newsletters, and self-help books that attempt to discuss what men are all about, and purport to help women understand men better. Women — generally being the more insightful and self-effacing gender — write the majority of these self-help tomes, so a man’s perspective is conspicuously missing. In my opinion (and with no disrespect intended toward those female writers), it doesn’t matter how a woman analyzes and assesses men’s societal ills, or how many focus groups she holds; she is still not a man… and she never will be. She is attempting to interpret men; her data-driven research is internalized and offered solely from a woman’s point of view, and thus incomplete. There is no choice but for her views to be skewed, because they’re based on the following societal program/lie: Women are responsible for the problems in relationships, and must fix them. But that is completely inaccurate, and is one of the reasons I offer the following insights into the world of men from a man’s point of view … as a man who has been on both sides of the fence — womanizer turned dedicated husband and father.

Advertising Gaffe In Michael Jackson Catching On Fire Video

Today Access Hollywood and US Weekly share exclusive, never-before-seen footage of Michael Jackson’s hair catching on fire during the infamous 1984 Pepsi commercial filming. The pyrotechnic disaster is significant not just because Jackson sustained some very serious second- and third-degree burn injuries, but some insiders claim it was the catalyst for the painkiller addictions that would later cost him his life. While I do believe that posting this seriously disturbing video is tasteless and tawdry, I’m actually kind of an a-hole because once I knew it was there I couldn’t resist taking a peek. While I waited for the video to load, I was treated to a commercial about new Dove products where the narrator cooed, “Repair your hair.” Next, MJ’s hair caught on fire. Yeesh. To be fair, the commercials they show in this video rotate and I’m sure this was totally inadvertent, but just sayin’… Might wanna yank that one guys. [Access Hollywood] Keep reading »
