bennifer 071309 g1 jpg
Yes, Ben Affleck‘s career took a serious nosedive after “Gigli,” but that doesn’t excuse him for s**t-talking his ex-fiancée, Jennifer Lopez. He recently (allegedly) said:

“I was no longer in control of my life. I thought I wanted certain things, but I didn’t. I got lost. I felt suffocated, miserable and gross. I should never have gone down that route or got sucked in to all the publicity. I was typecast as myself. Too many people weren’t getting past what they read about me. That was damaging. I can tell from experience it’s bad for you, and bad for your career.” [Celebitchy]

I know you’re wified up now Ben, but it’s a bit tacky to diss on Jenny from the block! Here are other celebritiess have gone rogue on their exes.

Women: The Best Stimulus Package

If you want a job done right, hire more women. According to data from Ernst & Young, Goldman Sachs, Columbia University, and Pepperdine University, having more women in senior management positions means higher profits for a company. So could turning up the estrogen level in big corporations be a lasting fix to the financial crisis that does not involve another bailout? That’s what Katty Kay and Claire Shipman, authors of Womenomics, argued in yesterday’s Washington Post. They say that this latest data makes sense—after all, women are generally better at working with others, not to mention that we make more cautious decisions and think in the long-term, while guys are often about high-risk competition. Could the financial melt down of this year be the death of macho on Wall Street? [Washington Post] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Ryan Lochte Flashes His Grill

U.S. Olympics swimmer Ryan Lochte — who won our Olympic Hottie Face Off over Michael Phelps — flashed his bling after winning the men’s 200 meter individual medley final at the 2009 ConocoPhillips Nationals Championships & World Championship Trials. It wasn’t the first time he broke out the grill to celebrate either — he also rocked the look in 2007 to match his medals. So what do you think? Hot or not? [Indiana, 7/12/09] Keep reading »

Why Doesn’t Tara Subkoff Have Health Insurance?

Last week it was announced that Tara Subkoff, designer for the edgy, high-end brand Imitation of Christ, was diagnosed with a brain tumor and would be undergoing brain surgery. If she doesn’t get the surgery — which will require a year of recovery, during which she won’t be able to work — within two years, the tumor will be fatal. As a result, her friends — who include big time stars like “The Royal Tenenbaums” director Wes Anderson and actress Chloe Sevigny — are throwing her a silent auction art benefit (they’re asking for donations) tomorrow night in New York City to raise money to pay for the costly procedure.

Because Subkoff, it seems, does not have health insurance. My second response — after the initial, “Oh man, that’s sad” — was, “Umm, why the f**k not?” Keep reading »

Mel Gibson’s Girlfriend Is A Singer, Remember?

Mel Gibson’s girlfriend has an achy-breaky heart. Last month we posted Oksana Grigorieva’s first single, “Say My Name.” Well the singer (?) has just released her first video, for the song “Beautiful Heartache.” And I have to say the video is a little random. Oksana sings about her heartburn while tango dancers whip across the floor, a knife thrower narrowly misses stabbing Oksana’s pencil-thin frame, and then her piano catches on fire? Oksana also sings about how she likes “the way you wear your skin.” I would say she wears hers a little stretched out with a touch of collagen. Witness the magic for yourself above. Keep reading »

Jason Wu Dolls Just As Chic As Their Runway Counterparts

Returning to his couture doll clothing roots, fashion darling Jason Wu has designed a doll and clothed it in one of his Fall ’09 runway looks. Reminiscent of Barbie way back before she became so fond of hot pink and boobs, this bleached blond little number is a classy alternative to those slutty Bratz dolls. The marabou feather and spike-heeled wonder in plastic is available starting this week at Collette in Paris for 215 euros (that’s about $300). Get yours today! (Once they sell out, we predict serious Ebay value.) Or just stare at it on your computer screen and wonder if it’s weird that you’re jealous of a doll. [Style.com] Keep reading »
