Getting Hired In A Sea Of Unemployment

Employment rates reached 9.4% this month—the highest they’ve been in the past 26 years. Great, so nearly a tenth of the U.S. is unemployed, and I’m graduating college in a semester––yikes! While I’d totally love to embrace “funemployment” come December, I just don’t think my Dad will approve of that. So in the spirit of I-better-start-looking-for-a-job-now-or-I’m-gonna-need-food-stamps-and-I-don’t-know-how-they-work, here are some very creative ways other people have taken to the job search.

Jamie Kennedy better watch out. Girlfriend Jennifer Love Hewitt recently told Jamie—oh, and every listener in the LA area tuned into the “JohnJay and Rich” show—that if Jamie doesn’t propose to her by this time next year, there will be “a situation.” Ironically, the couple was on the radio show to deny engagement rumors. So I guess we’ll see how that turns out. [Celebitchy]

I’ve never been a fan of woman who pester their guys about puttin’ a ring on it. And for some reason, it seems like an awful lot of celebrities are doing this publicly, which just seems wrong. Click on for the hall of shame.

8 Suits, 8 Kids: Kate Gosselin’s Matchy-Matchy Vacay

Not that it’s a surprise to anyone out there that the Gosselin’s are on vacay—well, everyone minus Jon who’s motoring around his yard back in P-A on his ATV—and if you’ve seen anything of Kate on the beach you know the woman is working it. New suit every day, giant sunglasses, personal trainer-bought six-pack abs. And because Ms.Thing has loads of style (and kids) we thought why not match a kid to the suit—fun way to get to know who is who!

And since twin Mady’s the total diva of the show (well, she’s ain’t the only one, she’s really a mini-Kate), she inspired KG’s total sexy-time suit. How’s that for attention grabbing?

Legendary rock n’ roll producer Phil Spector was just sentenced to 19 years in jail for murder. Although the prison guards took away his infamous afro wig, he was allowed to bring his iPod and a computer with him. So now, the inmate is a blogger…just like me. Dang, these internets are egalitarian! But what’s Phil got to blog about: prison slop, pooping in public, what really happens when you drop the soap? Actually, he’s been going on and on about his budding bromance with Wilson, a pet cockroach who likes to play chess. Uh, gross.

But in the Celebiverse, you don’t have to be behind bars to have a weird friggin’ pet. From a Blackberry stealing chimpanzee to a flock of flamingos, here are our favorite eccentric celebs and their even crazier animals. Keep reading »

We hope you’re sitting down, because what we’re about to tell you is going to blow your mind. High-end fashionista Max Azaria and Miley Cyrus have teamed up for a new Wal-Mart clothing line. Why would Max lend his couture street cred to the budget-brand teen queen?

Workers of the World—It’s Weisure Time!

As a writer who works from home, sometimes the lines get blurred—what is my work time and what is my leisure time? Apparently, I’m not alone. Experts are calling this mish-mash of work and pleasure “weisure time.” Yes, you read that right. Now try to say it three times fast. Laugh now, but get ready to live it, cause experts are predicting that the American workforce is moving from 9 to 5 work hours to 24/7 “weisure time.” Woo hoo! Keep reading »

Fame And Fortune Don’t Bring Happiness, Yeah Right

A new study has found that the pursuit of fame, fortune, and beauty makes people less happy. One hundred and fifty graduates from the University of Rochester and Knox College in Illinois were followed for two years, and over that time, researchers assessed the graduates’ satisfaction with life, relationships, and self-esteem. Participants also evaluated their anxiety and stress levels, as well as, their physical ailments such as headaches. The researchers found that fame- and money-hungry graduates who had achieved their goals were the most dissatisfied and anxious. In contrast, participants who had a stronger sense of community and had developed fulfilling relationships felt less stress and were more confident. [am New York]

Put On Your Nylons, Dollface, It’s Time For An Air Raid Party

Brits. We will never understand them sometimes—and not just because of the cute accents.

Tonight some rather cheeky Brits are celebrating a “Blitz Party,” the 65th anniversary of D-Day, when the Allied forces invaded Normandy, France, during WWII. (The Blitz was when the Germans bombed the city of London for over a month straight, tens of thousands of Brits were killed and millions of homes and buildings destroyed.) Keep reading »
