Words To The Wise: Marilyn Monroe’s Take On Life, Love & Style

Over 50 years ago, Marilyn Monroe sang the now infamous “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend.” However, the style icon had more insights than many give her credit for. Sometimes dark and tumultuous, at others witty and lithe, Monroe had perspective on life, love, and style. Perhaps we should take to heart her appreciation for life and its trials, and that at the end of the day the only one you need to answer to is yourself. She said:

“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”

Is Scarlett Johansson Lamborghini-Curved?

Earlier today, The New York Daily News‘ “Gatecrasher” column ran a story postulating that Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds are having marital issues because they both lead such busy lives. The proof? An anonymous source, natch, plus the fact that Ryan didn’t make a guest appearance when ScarJo hosted “Saturday Night Live” last weekend the way she did when he was hosting a year before. Even though, uh, later in the article, they go on to say that Ryan was in Los Angeles and flew to New York for Scarlett’s birthday on Monday, for a dinner with her and her siblings. The info here is sketchy at best, but what I’d like to direct your attention to is the super creative writing. Not only does the author refer to Ryan as “the abs-solutely fabulous Reynolds,” but in the same sentence, the author describes Scarlett as “his Lamborghini-curved wife.” I dunno about that one.

I turned to my handsome, curly haired off-and-on beau of six years, sitting beside me on the couch of Dr. W’s office. I’d left Aaron because he couldn’t commit. Yet after three months apart, he coerced me to a couples session with his new therapist, Dr. W, “just for closure.”

“He’s so happy you could make it here today,” Dr. W added.

“And who are you, Cyrano de Bergerac?” I asked. Read more Keep reading »

Heidi Klum Doesn’t Want To Be A Gaunt Old Lady

“The ultimate beauty secret for a woman getting older is, ‘Don’t be too thin!’ It is always better to have a little meat on your bones. When you are just muscle, you end up being gaunt in the face, and that makes you look older by five or ten years.”
