Manskirts. We noticed the craze last year when Marc Jacobs started wearing kilts, but this fashion trend for men has stood the test of time. Skirting gender issues still has some haters — just ask the man currently suing the New Orleans Police Department for $1 for his right to wear a manskirt. Clearly, the times and the styles, they are a’ changin’. Now that the manskirt has gone high fashion, we decided to take a stroll down memory lane and see who’s responsible for men showing some leg.

Is it “Hate on Michelle Obama” week? Supermodel Iman told Parade Mrs. O is “no great beauty.” Now, comic Jay Mohr is adding his two cents. During a call-in on “The Jim Rome Show” on ESPN, he went off on a mean-spirited monologue about the First Lady. Keep reading »
When Rachel Bilson was out of town, her LA home was burgled. The thief raided the star’s closet, taking designer clothes, shoes, handbags, and jewelry, including items given to her by her grandmother. While the loss of her Chanel collection unfortunate, it’s the stealing of the jewelry that Rachel’s grandmother gave her that’s most heart-wrenching; it can’t be replaced.
That got me thinking: What clothing or accessory would I be most upset about if it got stolen? It would probably be a bracelet my parents gave me. While the item could be replaed, I would always know that it wasn’t the one they gave me. Keep reading »

Hayden Panettiere has been showing off a new tattoo on her torso, but the tattoo, which reads “vivere senza rimipianti” (“to live without regrets”), is misspelled. Her “rimpianti” has an extra “i” in it. Now, we’re guessing Hayden has at least one regret. She isn’t the only celebrity who has a tattoo gone wrong. Thankfully, my Arabic tattoo says exactly what I wanted it to. More tattoo mishaps after the jump.

I can’t help it. I loathe Ann Curry. I know she’s supposed to be the cute, cuddly – but still serious! – one on “The Today Show,” but homegirl makes me want to punch something. For starters, she’s a gusher. She fawns over her celebrity interview subjects like she’s on the verge of orgasming from inhaling their talented, sexy, beautiful scent. She glows and raves about their various accomplishments – “So philanthropic!” “You’ve done so much for starving children!” “Your 30 second cameo in this film is cinematic genius!” — and never asks tough questions. She giggles like a school girl who’s seen a boy’s pee-pee for the first time. Oh, and that laugh. That laugh makes me stabby. Keep reading »

Proving he’s a real romantic, the 45-year-old Italian businessman whose $13,600 bid won the auction paid to fly Alina to Venice — after she underwent to medical exams to prove her virginity. In Venice, the two toured the city before retiring to a luxury hotel for the main event. “‘We kissed, then undressed each other,’ Alina says. ‘I’d never done that before, so I was nervous. He laid me on the bed and started kissing my body, then we had sex. I was attracted to him, so I enjoyed it, even though it was quite painful.’” The next morning Alina, who, as part of the auction, didn’t use protection, enjoyed breakfast with the winning bidder “like any other couple” and took a morning-after pill. The romance doesn’t stop there, guys! “He told me he’d like to see me again, and I agreed.” Although the money raised fell short of the $75,000 she hoped to earn, she says, “I hope to see the man again. And next time I won’t make him pay!” Awww. [via DailyMail] Keep reading »
Sometimes the universe works in mysterious ways. It gives, it takes, and everything levels out somehow. For example, Courtney Love goes on Twitter. Then Ashton Kutcher. Then Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson. And we ask ourselves: Why are we reading this thing again?
