It looks like Dina Lohan has no intention of laying low in the momager game, despite the fact that her daughter Lindsay is back in rehab. Fortunately for Dina, there are two more kids to screw up! And while Ali has already had some time in the spotlight, it’s her son Michael Lohan Jr. who will be starring in “Growing Defiant,” which will be produced by Dina’s production company (huh?), Defiant Pictures. The movie takes place in Long Island and follows a group of heroin-addicted kids. Yes, that’s right. Dina has hired her own son to pretend to be on heroin in the movie she’s making. Face, meet palm.

If my mom handled my career, I would be a pregnant baker/poet living in a cabin in Minnesota. Wait, that sounds awesome. But a lot of momagers haven’t made the best decisions for their kids. We’ve rounded up a few classics. Keep reading »
While Google was feting its new shopping website (Boutiques.com) with acrobats and celebs like Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Tumblr was playing host to a fashion launch. “Of a Kind” is the first e-commerce-type site of its kind to use the blogging service as their online platform. A sort of blog-cum-shop, the store rotates features on new and up-and-coming designers, both selling their wares and promoting them through blogging, or “storytelling” as they put it. For fashion-inclined Tumblr users, this lets them automatically see updates in their feed, which is a great way to put products on an audience’s radar.
It seems that increasingly the tech community is becoming fashion- and e-commerce-oriented. Think we can expect this wave of style technology innovations to continue? [Of a Kind] Keep reading »
It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “Teaching Class,” a young teacher who worries that another young teacher in her school was making a fool of herself by acting too quirky. “Part of me wants to go and have a gentle conversation with ‘Jane’ about professionalism, especially since I think it is hurting her relationship with her students in addition to staff, but I wouldn’t know what to say.” I advised “Teaching Class” to let a supervisor be the one to talk professionalism with Jane, and instead, seek out her friendship if she was so inclined. After the jump, find out if she followed that advice. Keep reading »
Imagine for a moment the following scenario: you are at a party with Karl Lagerfeld. (Like we said, imagine.) And sometime along the course of the evening you find a vintage Chanel diamond brooch on the floor that belongs to Mr. Lagerfeld. Would you turn it in? Or keep the goody as your own little souvenir? When this happened to Karl at a CFDA party, a photographer apparently found it and returned it.
Sheesh, you could at least ask for a reward. [Fashionologie] Keep reading »
It took Will Ferrell 21 years of making jokes as an excuse to talk to girls before one finally deflowered him. He told Rolling Stone in a recent interview that he lost his virginity his junior year of college. “In my mind’s eye, it seemed like the way it was supposed to happen,” he said. But the joke was on him. He revealed that his mom assumed his deflowering took place much earlier with a “loose” high school classmate. “She said, ‘If you slept with this girl, you’d better slap a condom on that pecker of yours.’” That sounds like an awfully awkward convo. Click on through to hear more stories about celebs losing it … their v-card, that is. [Celebitchy]
