Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Reality TV star Jade Goody made headlines for her antics on “Big Brother” in the U.K. Instant notoriety came when she said, “I thought East Anglia was abroad.” But now she’s in the headlines for another, much more tragic reason. The 27-year-old has been fighting an uphill battle with cervical cancer since last August. Unfortunately, chemotherapy hasn’t worked to combat the cancer that is rapidly spreading throughout her body. Doctors have given the star only weeks to live. In an interview, Jade revealed how she felt when she received the news.
“I couldn’t breathe when they told me, just screamed and cried and said, ‘Can’t anyone do anything to help me!’ Because a few weeks ago when they first told me the chemo hadn’t worked they said it didn’t have to be the end.”
Jade is aware of her inevitable fate, but instead of accepting the idea that she’s dying, she’s choosing to live in the moment instead.

“Twilight” star, Robert Pattinson, recorded some songs for the movie’s soundtrack. In fact, his crooning helped the album steadily move up the U.S. album charts. But this time around, he’s turned down the opportunity to contribute his sultry voice to the upcoming movie sequel soundtrack. Why? Pursuing music professionally was never the actor’s intention and he’d rather keep his music career as a backup plan. The Brit is a talented composer, pianist and guitarist, so music may not be a horrible option if he’s never able to score another role after Edward Cullen. But until his 15 minutes of movie fame are up, he’s stepping aside so rock band Paramore can write the title track to the movie’s soundtrack. [I'mNotObsessed.com] Keep reading »

Over at The Huffington Post, Dr. Judith Rich poses an interesting question: what would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail? Often we stop ourselves from pursuing our desire to try something, because of fear that we won’t succeed. But if you took that out of the equation — if failure wasn’t possible — what would you do? Initially when I read this question, I thought, “Fly!” I always was a dreamer. But realistically speaking, there’s so much I would do if I knew my fears were misplaced. I would take up surfing, finally master that headstand in yoga, and, obviously, ask Ryan Gosling out on a date. So what would YOU do? Keep reading »

Just as you probably don’t leave the house without adding at least one bracelet, ring, or necklace to your outfit, fashion designers don’t let their models walk onto the runway un-accessorized. At the Trovata show on Tuesday, tailored-yet-casual-and-effortless clothes were accented with jewelry from the year-old line DanniJo, designed by sisters Danielle and Jodie Snyder. Among our favorite baubles in the show were the Celia entangled chain necklace ($465) and the Jacinda ring ($82), which models wore on three or four fingers. While this was DanniJo’s first official fashion week, it’s not the line’s first fashion show. Remember Jenny Humphrey’s guerilla fashion show on “Gossip Girl”? Well, Little J’s designs were paired with DanniJo necklaces!
