Trailer Park: “Bruno,” “I Love You Beth Cooper,” And “Humpday”

Maybe it’s because I haven’t seen another human being in five days, but I’m really enthusiastically excited about the movies coming out this week. They all share a certain theme, which happens to be my favorite: awkwardness! First, “Brüno” gets audiences all blushy by showing his waxed man body (and balls, apparently?). Then a nerd goes for the cheerleader (shocker) in “I Love You, Beth Cooper.” And finally, two men take bromance to the next level in “Humpday.” Bye! I’ll be at the movies with my new friends, butter and slushy. Keep reading »

Style Buzz: Top Models On the Cheap

  • Models walked for 50 euros instead of their usual 1,300 or more fee at the Christian Lacroix couture show. A rather sweet show of solidarity with the struggling designer, don’t you think? [Imaginary Socialite]
  • Lindsay Lohan and Christina Aguilera are slotted for cameo spots on upcoming episodes of “Project Runway.” This totally makes sense given how classy and fashionable those two always are. [The Mirror]

Some Hope For Laura Ling And Euna Lee

Finally, some good news has come from North Korea about detained journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee. Despite being sentenced to 12 years of hard labor last month for illegally entering North Korea, the pair is currently staying at a guest house in the North Korean capital, Pyongyang. This update comes just days after Lisa Ling received a relieving phone call from her sister. According to political scientist Han Park, “North Korea’s move not to carry out the sentence suggests that it could release them through a dialogue with the United States and they could be set free at an early date, depending on the U.S. gesture.” Keeping my fingers crossed for their safe return!

An 83-Year-Old Couple Parties Way More Than You Do!

I go out once a week, maybe, and my mother still sends Alcoholics Anonymous pamphlets and shows concern for the fact that I’ll never meet my future husband unless I stop being such a party girl. Meanwhile, over in Rotherham, UK, a pair of 83-year-olds named Jack and Jean Atkinson are raving three nights a week until 3am. The couple has been married for 64 years—they met in 1945 and got married 15 days later. They have three kids and four grandkiddies, but nothing can keep them from living their lives to the fullest. Which, to them, includes clubbing. As Jack says, “Where is it written that when you reach a certain age you can’t do this or shouldn’t do that—it’s rubbish it is all in the mind…We’re old in age but young at heart.” Keep reading »

We See (Not Just) Chick Flicks: Bruno

The Lowdown: Watching the feature film “Bruno” is somewhat like eating a whole bag of candy corn. There is a sugar rush high and momentary feeling of elation and giddiness, but all too soon you feel sick and crash. The experience is not awful and you come out no worse for the wear, but it’s not something you are likely to try again in the near future. Walking out of the theatre in a zombie-like trance from the sheer amount of material that was thrown at me from beginning to end, I couldn’t form a statement more coherent than “wow.” “Bruno” is neither a great movie nor a horrific one. I am sure it falls somewhere between good and meh, but the movie’s predominant characteristic is its sheer recklessness and audacity. Keep reading »

Paris Hilton Sued For $8.3 Million For Not Promoting “Pledge This!”

Yesterday, Paris Hilton had to tear herself apart from her new BFFs in Dubai to take the stand in a Miami courtroom. The folks who invested in her movie “Pledge This!” are suing the heiress for $8.3 million in damages because she didn’t carry out any of the promotion for the movie that she was contractually obligated to do. Her lawyer admitted that Hilton wasn’t a big fan of the film’s final cut, but alleged that she still did her best to endorse the flick. But let’s be serious, you know that her busy schedule of partying and being slutty prevented her from doing as many appearances as the investors wanted. The silly soro-stitution movie about a fake sorority at a fake university who tried to diversify to win “Best Sorority of the Year” only opened in 25 theaters and made a very weak $2.9 million. Hilton was paid $1 million to play the lead and the investors want to recoup the money they put into this mega flop. A note to these producers: did you ever think that maybe your movie just sucked and that’s why nobody saw it? [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Damn! Calorie Restriction Makes Monkeys Live Longer

According to a new study done on (cute!) rhesus monkeys, calorie restriction—i.e. eating way far fewer calories than is currently recommended—has been shown to slow the aging process. The monkeys whose caloric intake was reduced by about one-third lived longer than those on a regular diet. Calorie restriction also slowed the loss of gray matter in the brain, which is the part of your noggin that responds to stimuli… Keep reading »
