“Inferno” Director Says Replacing Lindsay Lohan Was The Right Thing To Do

“I love working with [Malin], she is sensitive and hard-working and I think it’s a great decision for our project. … I feel like 16 tons of weight are off my mind not having to deal with the Lindsay Lohan situation. We have not heard anything from Lindsay and her camp recently but we wish her and them well. I still think she has great talent and if she respects those gifts then she will go on to show people what she is capable of doing.”

Black TV Newswoman Vows To “Go Natural” With Her Hair

At the beginning of reporter Rochelle Ritchie’s TV news career, she was told she had to get hair extensions. Like millions of black women, Rochelle has worn long, shiny extensions and wigs because she thought it made her look more professional. For six years, she “faithfully” wore wigs and weaves and progressed up the corporate ladder. But that’s come to an end. “After years of manipulation, I took the break step of going natural,” she now says on this great five-minute-long segment on WPTV. From now on, Rochelle will be reporting from West Palm Beach, Florida, with just her own ‘do — and she looks gorgeous. Keep reading »

Dater X: Playing Patti Stanger On A Bad Date

As I leaned forward and sent my 10-pound ball careening down the center of the lane, I could feel Blondie staring at my butt. Normally, this is a thing I love, but tonight, all I felt was supremely uncomfortable. The pins flew in the air in a jumble, but it was hard to be too excited about the strike. I was on a bad date. And not the kind of bad date where both of you recognize the badness and mutually agree to get out of there as quickly as possible with no hard feelings. It was the kind of date where, while I was repulsed, he was feeling it. Keep reading »

Would You Wear: House Of Dereon Spring 2011 Shoes?

Photos of the spring 2011 shoe collection from Beyonce’s House of Dereon have hit the web. And I’m completely underwhelmed because all these styles look really familiar. Similar incarnations of that gladiator sandal, for instance, made their debut two summers ago and were extremely popular this past summer. And the black and white sandal and the white studded sandal look like shoes anyone could buy from Target or Payless. There isn’t anything wrong with shopping at Target and Payless, mind you, but isn’t Beyonce trying to establish House of Dereon as a brand ahead of the curve? That is the goal of most designers, isn’t it — to start the trends, not copy them? So, you know my opinion now, but would you wear shoes from the House of Dereon spring collection?

And The Prize For The Unsexiest Sex Writing Goes To …

Take a bow, Rowan Somerville, you’ve written some spectacularly unsexy sex stuff. At least according to the Literary Review, which doles out an annual award to the worst sex writing in fiction. Somerville beat out authors Jonathan Franzen, Craig Raine, Adam Moss and a slew of others for his unappealing descriptions of sex in the novel The Shape of Her. The winning (losing) selection of prose? Somerville compared a sex act to “a lepidopterist mounting a tough-skinned insect.” Ouch. The Bad Sex in Fiction Award was founded in 1993, and highlights “the crude, tasteless, and often perfunctory use of redundant passages of sexual description in contemporary novels.” Previous Bad Sex winners include Tom Wolfe, Norman Mailer, and John Updike.

We’re excited enough that she finally admitted she’s preggers, but now Mariah Carey is hinting that she and hubby Nick Cannon are maybe expecting twins! The singer sparked suspicion while promoting her new holiday CD, Merry Christmas II You, when she said, “I just hope that they don’t turn out hating Christmas!” That’s right, “they!” Of course, that could have been her way of not giving away the baby’s sex (if they even know), but still … it’s more fun to speculate. TWINS! [Celebuzz]
