All the tabloids are doing their big wrap-ups this week, because they are shutting down shop until January. So that means they have a lot to cover, because not only do they have to recap the entire year, they have to make enough poorly backed-up predictions to last two weeks! What is strangely missing is any detailed investigative work on the most recent national crisis that is Miley Cyrus Bong-Gate. Read on to find out what the tabloids deemed to be the more important celebrity news to fill up the next fortnight of your life. Keep reading »
When I first met my boyfriend he was wearing pristine white Adidas sneakers. I punched him in the shoulder and said, “Hey, what’s up with your shoes?” He asked me what I meant. “I’ve never seen shoes that clean,” I said. “I don’t trust people with shoes that clean.” He pointed at a tiny smear of dirt near the toe and said, “They’re not that clean.” I don’t really remember how or why we ended up getting together after this, but I can tell you that those suspiciously clean sneakers were a real stumbling block (to be fair, my propensity for punching strangers probably didn’t help). You know what would have been a preferable footwear choice? Boots — the dirtier the better. Here are my top five reasons why … Keep reading »

Pictured above: Carolina and Liliana Falcone, twins who are now 5 years old. Their parents are Philip Falcone, a filthy rich investor, and Lisa Falcone, who apparently married in some rags-to-riches story and is now a fashion-obsessed indie movie producer. Lisa wants the very best for her little ones (what mother doesn’t?), and this includes making every girl’s wildest fantasy come true. Reports New York magazine, on their 18th birthday, “[the twins are] to open a treasure trove of designer frocks that’s presently being collected for them.” The lot already includes examples by luxury designers like Oscar de la Renta.
Pfft. We couldn’t even finagle a new Discman out of our parents for our 18th birthday. What did you get? [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
Yesterday, I told you about Carol Anne Riddell and John Patilla, the couple spotlighted in The New York Times’ “Vows” column on Sunday, who fell in love when they were both married to other people, and subsequently broke up their families to be together. My qualm wasn’t so much with the messy way in which they fell in love — which, at best, could be described as an emotional affair and, well, s**t happens — but that they chose to share all the details of their perspective on their love story in such a public forum. I mean, get married, but don’t invite the entire world to the reception, you know? It just seemed unnecessarily insensitive to the spouses they left, not to mention the children they had with their exes. Well, it seems that the happily married couple now regrets the decision to appear in the paper. Sort of. Keep reading »
