Therapy For Your Pocketbook Episode 12: “Clothes Investment”

In the latest episode of “Therapy For Your Pocketbook,” Susie, a young professional, shares that she sees everything she buys as an investment … like sunglasses and blouses her daughter will wear someday.

Did MTV Steal The Idea For “Jersey Shore”?

Jersey Shore” may be the hot(tub)est show on television in eons. But one writer is considering legal action against MTV for ripping off his idea. Christopher Gambale submitted a treatment to MTV for a show called “Guidos: A Reality Series.” He wrote it and registered it with the Writer’s Guild of America back in 2006.

Beyonce Ad Is Banned In The U.K.

Beyonce’s new perfume “Heat” is actually getting some serious heat from the British Advertising Standards Authority.

Beyonce has got this country on lock down! Great Britain, not so much. Well, hopefully this means she’s going to cover 2 Live Crew’s “Banned In The U.S.A,” except make it U.K. That would be rad-unkulous! [Celeb Jihad via OMG Blog]
