Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
One of the things we love about the holidays is that it’s one of the only times of the year when you can really play around with your party look and deviate from the standard, slightly natural thing you might otherwise rock on a regular night out. Pump up the volume on the red lipstick, break out the shimmer dust from 8th grade, and lacquer your nails to match your Christmas presents. Check out our ideas and makeup tips after the jump!
I was hoping that “Avatar” fever had died down, but Wu Lingyuan, China, is keeping it alive. This region contains the mountain ranges in the movie, and enterprising citizens have found a way to turn that into dollar signs by offering “Avatar” wedding packages. The view is gorgeous, but takers are a little less excited about the Na’vi provided. As one recent bride explained, “The Na’vi were a couple of forestry workers dressed up in long underwear dyed blue wearing some very unconvincing masks. It was really pathetic.” Lucky for us, she had the picture to back it up. [/Film] Keep reading »
It’s time again for “Shortcuts.” For every question, I’ll give my advice in three sentences or less, because sometimes the answer to a person’s question is so obvious and the need to hear it so great, being as clear and frank as possible is simply the best way to go. Today we discuss whether sex with a boyfriend can ruin a marriage, the ethics of dating one’s lawyer, and reaching out to a friend you’ve wronged.
If I believed in guilty pleasures, I’d say that watching Lifetime movies is one of my deepest guilty pleasures. But since I don’t believe you should feel guilty about one of the greatest things in the world, I’m just going to say I really, really like these movies. Lifetime’s films fall into two basic tropes: 1.) a persecuted woman haunted by her past, her ex, or some other weird abusive dude who wants to murder her, or 2.) a quirky tale about a woman who overcomes some obstacle to find romance and true love. This Sunday, the network premiers “Marry Me,” starring Lucy Lui, which they’ve helpfully described as “three fiances, one fiasco. Who will she choose?” Told over two nights, “Marry Me” seems to fall into the wacky romance category. Join me in watching the movie and we’ll have a post-”Marry Me” wrap-up next week! If you can’t catch the television screening, you can watch it on Hulu. “Marry Me,” on Lifetime, Sunday, December 12 at 9 p.m. (EST). [Lifetime] Keep reading »
While I think we’d all love to be Bill’s bitch, there’s a perfectly good explanation for these tees.“True Blood” studs Stephen Moyer and Alexander Skarsgard just competed against each other in the Battle Of The Fangs, a fundraiser for Gulf Aid and SOS Children’s Villages. Together they raised $70K, yay! But Team Bill edged out Team Eric by a mere $892. So, Alex’s T-shirt got made because he wound up on the bottom, er, losing the bet. FYI: Moyer’s T says “I Like My Bitches Blonde.” Ha! Anyway, boys, I have an idea. Next time, how about you go shirtless for charity? [L.A. Rag Mag] Keep reading »
