Last week’s episode of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” brought the ire of PETA. Which means next week’s episode should get an outcry from the Moms Of Eight Association Of America. In the episode, Sarah brings Kate Gosselin camping, where Kate is cold and hungry to the point where she breaks down and cries. Sarah’s response? “Come on, it wasn’t that bad.” Aww, a TLC friendship made in heaven. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
January Jones is well known for her icy blonde locks — they’re the calling card of her “Mad Men” character Betty Draper. But just today, January was spotted sporting a head full of red hair — with long red extensions, even. Is she trying to cut in on Christina Hendricks’ trademark look? What do you think of her new red look?

It’s an undertaking with great cultural relevance and that’s enough. We are ambassadors of Italy’s lifestyle and it’s really our duty to give off a strong symbol.”
