A Thin Body Leads To An Old Face

Valerie Bertinelli is on the cover of People showing off her new bikini body just a couple of weeks shy of her 49th birthday. She has the body of a 20-year-old, but her face looks much older. In fact, she looks older than she did when she started losing weight two years ago. It turns out that being too thin ages women over 40 more than smoking, heavy drinking, or sun exposure, according to a new study published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Journal. The reverse is true for women who haven’t reached the big 4-0. Keep reading »

Use A Condom When You Get Into Bed With MTV

MTV wants to protect you from the skanks you see on their station. To commemorate STD Awareness Month, they’ve launched a safe-sex campaign. And they’re so down with the kids, they’re speakin’ their language, their cell phone language, that is. The new initiative is called “It’s Your Sex Life,” with a focus on GYT — that’s how you’d text someone “get yourself tested.” Yikes, shouldn’t that be a phone call or at least an e-card? Anyway, they kicked off their crotch crusade with “Pedro,” a biopic about Pedro Zamora, the HIV positive cast member from the third season of “The Real World.” But, all month long you can look forward to PSAs from the likes of Santogold, the Maddens, and N.E.R.D. Plus, Beth Ditto will be answering sex questions in a segment called, “Ask Beth.” Wow, the safe sex push plus MTV promising to play music videos — it’s like 1994 all over again!

Nicole Richie Adds Shoes To House Of Harlow 1960 Label

Nicole Richie’s House of Harlow 1960 jewelry line was an instant success. So now the expectant mother will bring another baby, literally and figuratively, into the fashion world. Nicole has entered into a multi-year, multi-product deal with the owners of Modern Vintage shoes and Earnest Sewn jeans, Rick and Brian Cytrynbaum. And first on the product list is a 20 style footwear line designed by Nicole herself, which will debut in spring 2010, along with a small assortment of handbags, apparel, sunglasses and belts. The line hasn’t been named and the price point hasn’t been set, yet. But the Cytrynbaums expect it to do well based on Nicole’s fashion icon status. Rick said, “Nicole Richie is by far one of America’s biggest fashion icons right now. We’re investing millions into this brand. This is like nothing out there right now.” And we can’t wait! By the way, this reminds me, I’ve been meaning to buy this House of Harlow ring. [WWD via Fashion Indie] Keep reading »

The Last Cast Of “ER”

After fifteen seasons, NBC is euthanizing “ER.” Tonight is the final episode, tear! We’ll always be suckers for a hunk who isn’t a doctor, but just plays one on TV. And tonight’s finale promises to be packed full of the hunks that made the show a hit! But in the meantime, here our fave DILFs (Doctor’s I’d Like To…Fancy!) from the hospital drama.

The Touch Felt ‘Round The World

Yesterday, at a reception at Buckingham Palace for the G20 summit, the Obamas met Queen Elizabeth, and Michelle did the unthinkable: She touched the Queen. This seems pretty innocuous, however, apparently it’s a big deal. Well, at least to some people.

When you meet royalty there is certain protocol that, while not set in stone, is nearly always followed. In the Time article “The Queen and Mrs. Obama: A Breach in Protocol,” Howard Chua-Eoan considers whether Obama was too friendly for British standards when she put her hand around the Queen’s back in a sort of half-hug. Chua-Eoan writes that one defense for Michelle’s behavior is that she isn’t a subject of the Queen, so she doesn’t have to curtsy before her.

Would You Wear A Button That Signifies You’re Single?

A “dating entrepreneur” from Australia has invented something he hopes will make it much easier for singles to approach one another. It’s called a “singles identification badge,” or, um, a button for short. The button costs $22.95, has the url of a dating site printed on it, and gets one access to online forums where people can organize meet-ups with others who share similar interests, kind of like that site called, you know, Meetup, which happens to be free. Evan Diacopolous, the 35-year-old behind the idea explains the button is like a “subtle and unobtrusive” sign that says, “’Hey I’m single, I’m looking for romance, don’t be afraid to come up and talk to me.” I used a similar sign pretty successfully when I was single — it was called “eye contact and a smile.”

Diacopolous hasn’t had many people sign buy the button and the service yet, but he has high hopes in that in “two or three years time, we’ll have a quarter of single people wearing the badge.” Yeah, good luck with that. [News.com.au] Keep reading »

Rock of Love Isn’t Misogynist — It’s Reality

Over at Nerve.com, Steve Almond takes on VH1′s “Rock of Love” and asserts the latest installment in the reality TV series, “Rock of Love Bus,” is, basically, pornography. According to Almond, the show is “eerily like a porn film,” absent, he says, feeling or intimacy, while everyone stands around groping and tonguing each other, nevertheless, and totally misogynist. But is “Rock of Love” misogynist — or reality? Keep reading »

“Project Runway” Is Finally Coming To Lifetime, But Do You Still Care About Klum & Co.?

After nearly a year of wondering when and on what channel we’d next see our beloved “Project Runway,” the companies involved have reached a settlement, and the show will make Lifetime its new home beginning with the sixth season this summer.

During the first five seasons of PR, we basically lived for the show. One time, I had it in my head that the show was going to be on at 9 p.m., not 10 p.m., and had to stay at the gym for an extra hour because I didn’t want to miss part of the episode when it finally came on (at its usual time, or course) by leaving to go home. But now that “Project Runway” is coming back, I’m not excited. Keep reading »
