“It’s hard to be with someone for five years and say, ‘This isn’t going to work. But it was a time in my life where I finally just said, I can’t live for anyone else anymore. I have to be on my own.’”
– Drew Barrymore, on her breakup with Fabrizio Moretti, in Elle Keep reading »
The Obamas went to Europe, and they got (and gave) more than crappy souvenir T-shirts from all of the countries they visited. Barack and Michelle got some flack for what they gave British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and his family when they came to Washington last month, so did their gift-giving improve? Keep reading to see how the Presidential presents stack up. Keep reading »
You might not need suspenders to keep your shorts up, but they look awfully cute, as Beyonce proved earlier this week. See! Even girls with chests to be reckoned with can pull off suspenders (just don’t wear them with a virtually see-through white ribbed tank — that’s slutty).
First Iowa, now Vermont — it’s been a big week for gay marriage advocates! The Vermont House of Representatives voted with a two-thirds majority to overturn the Governor’s veto of the gay marriage bill — this makes Vermont the first state in the union where lawmakers passed a gay marriage law instead of the courts. Vermont is the fourth state where gay marriage is now legal, alongside Iowa, Massachusetts, and Connecticut. [Reuters] Keep reading »
Just when I had convinced myself that I actually enjoyed the first season of MTV’s “The City,” Lauren, Heidi, Spencer, Audrina, and the rest of “The Hills” crew are back, like the back-stabbing best friends I never had. The season premiere featured a tearful Heidi and Lauren reunion, and Spencer beating up a kid who dared to tell Heidi he saw Spencer hitting on a female bartender. And what’s this I see on the season teaser…? Keep reading »
We kind of slacked off and didn’t see any of the Oscar contenders last year. Sometimes 12 bucks is way too much to pay to sit in a too cold theater with a bunch of strangers for a couple of hours. But now, we can watch Doubt from the comfort of our couch while snacking on real finger food that didn’t cost an additional $12. And when the movie gets too emotional, like when Sister Aloysius (Meryl Streep) confronts Mrs. Miller (Viola Davis) about her son’s alleged sexual abuse, we’ll be able to cry in private without seeming like a wuss. Let the snot bubbles blow! [$17.99, Amazon] Keep reading »
Catherine and I both have a thing for guys in plaid shirts. Sure, maybe this isn’t so much of a nerd girl thing, but we’re kind of nerdy and plaid gives us the tingles. We hope you agree!
Chris Brown pleaded not guilty to felony charges of assault and making a criminal threat in a Los Angeles court on Monday. His plea, however, could just be a formality because there are rumors that he and his lawyer are seriously negotiating a plea bargain with the prosecutor. If Chris cops a plea, then Rihanna won’t have to testify. She has made it clear she doesn’t want to testify but will if forced, says her attorney. A quick resolution to the case is also in Chris’ best interest, if significant jail time is taken off the table. He will avoid the public airing of his dirty laundry and more negative publicity. He’s facing a maximum of four years and eight months in a federal prison if the case goes to trial, however, he could get as little as probation alone. Then again, if the prosecutor makes a tough offer, Chris might be better off going to trial in hopes of avoiding a lot of prison time, even if it means his reputation and career will be in the toilet when he gets out.

Lindsay Lohan, who is virtually bankrupt and recently split with sugar mama Sam Ronson, is expanding her 6126 leggings line with pantyhose. This just sounds like a last ditch effort to make some money. I mean, pantyhose are just plain boring. What’s next, tube socks? Since hosiery generally goes for less than $20, we came up with some ideas for Lindsay to save her career and help her stay relevant, you know, because occasionally appearing on magazine covers and endorsing products doesn’t a lasting career make.
