I don’t actually know that the secret is naughty, or that it’s even a secret, but it’s so much more fun to assume it is. [Filming "Last Night", New York City, 10/20/08] Keep reading »
“You know that stuff they say about a woman being responsible for her own orgasms? That’s all true. And in my case, that makes me responsible for pretty damned good orgasms these days. Much better orgasms than when I was twenty-two. And I wouldn’t let a man control that. Not anymore. Now I’d invite him to participate. I’ll tell you this: I’ve learned my tricks. I know what I like. I do not wait around. I initiate. And I’m not all about frequency. I favor intensity. … There have been some men in my life who have been wickedly sexy and have taught me much about sexual pleasure. There are a few men I should thank, and others I need to forget. But I don’t regret. To hell with regret. I like what I am now. I like being a mother. I like my body better since I became a mother. I feel sexier as a result of becoming a mother.” — Halle Berry in Esquire Keep reading »
We have a major crush on Tim Gunn. Ever since the first season of “Project Runway” premiered, we have adored the man who advises contestants to “make it work,” even when their designs look like a 2nd-grade art project. Now that season five has ended, we still have “Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style” to get our weekly Tim Gunn fix, but now we have him whenever we want him because Bravo is selling a Tim Gunn talking bobblehead doll. Buy your own for $24.95. Okay, carry on, people. Keep reading »
This weekend Sarah Palin did Saturday Night Live and her Double-D doppleganger did a skin flick for Hustler called “Nailin’ Paylin!” So, how does the porn star stack up next to Tina Fey’s dead-on impression? Well, in this SFW promo interview, Lisa Anne’s busting out of her business suit and cracking us up! Who says porn stars can’t act? She can definitely fake it! Now, if you want to see how Paylin handles foreign affairs, watch her negotiating with two Russian men in our SFW Monday Menage after the jump! Sigh, if only we could solve all our diplomatic problems with a threesome. [Trend Hunter]

This weekend, Sarah Palin finally made her much anticipated appearance on “Saturday Night Live”, showing up in two skits written just for her. To tell you the truth, it seemed like the show was actually laughing at Palin rather than with her — the second skit, featuring Amy Poehler rapping, was seriously pretty…insulting. Additionally, the “highlight” of the first sketch was when Alec Baldwin told Palin that she was “hotter in person.” Considering her campaign thought Tina Fey’s portrayal was sexist, it was very interesting that she participated in a comedy routine which only focused on her physical appearance. Personally, this just supports my theory that the most sexist treatment of Palin comes from Palin herself. Keep reading »
On last week’s episode of “The Rachel Zoe Project,” crybaby assistant stylist Brad Goreski got busted for forgetting to leave Rachel a fashion kit with which to style Cameron Diaz for the Academy Awards. That kit includes nipples covers — as Brad explains: “[I]f one of our clients is wearing a chiffon dress, and it is cold outside, we’ll have pokey nipples!” God forbid a women should have protruding mammary papillae! As it turns out, if you’re looking to go bare but not go there, Bristols 6 makes the Nippies brand nipple covers that Zoe favors. The pasties style comes in a wide variety of shapes and colors: butterflies or stars, glittery or sequined, Rio hearts or Pucci patterned. The silicone style offers more coverage and is reusable and “paparazzi proof.” With the right pair, and the right ringtone, Zoe herself will tell you: “You’re shutting it down!” Keep reading »
Last night’s “Mad Men” had an all-too-rare subplot involving Joan and her betrothed, The Handsome Doctor . In a previous episode, Doc’s abusive, douche-tastic tendencies were barely hinted at — “Didn’t you say you were getting me a drink?!” — but this episode confirmed it for any doubters. In one of the most disturbing scenes to have been featured on “Mad Men”, the good doctor forces Joan to have sex with him on the floor of Don Draper’s office despite her repeated protests and attempts to physically dissuade him. Perhaps the saddest and most resonant part of all is when she stops fighting and turns her head to stare fixedly at Don’s coffee table, resigned to her fate. Keep reading »
The Brit was someone I can describe only as Lord Marcus on “Gossip Girl.” Well, except for the title and the vast family riches. Nine years older than me, the Brit was a U.K. transplant in the banking industry and a sweet, sweet man. Not only did he own a house across the pond, but he would sometimes bring small index cards on which he’d previously jotted down the names of nice restaurants we could go to after quick drinks or karaoke, depending on where we had agreed to meet. He was thoughtful, attentive, and thoroughly romantic, especially with that hot British accent.
One night, after an insanely fun night of boozy karaoke and a seafood dinner with entree-appropriate wine, he dropped me off at the door of my apartment. He then swept me up in his arms and spun me around, right in next to a busy street, for God and everyone else to see. I was floored. This was the stuff of Seventeen magazine fairytale dates – the ones I had looked forward to in high school that never materialized…until now. Giggling and semi-swooning, I kissed him goodnight and walked up the stairs to my apartment happy.
