Last week, Gwyneth Paltrow was on “Oprah” extolling the virtues of her two hour daily workouts and sharing how one “wine soaked” dinner with Madonna “reorganized her molecules.” This week, she’s moved on to unveiling “Goop,” which sounds a lot like a hair product we once used in the ’80s, but is actually the name of her new lifestyle website. Goop has six sections: Make, Go, Get, Do, Be, and See, and while currently each section just takes the reader to Gwyneth’s mission statement — “Nourish the inner aspect” — it’s clear that through her site, she plans to share all her little wisdoms, secrets, and discoveries, so you know, the rest of us can attain the perfection that is her life. “Whether you want a good place to eat in London,” she writes, “some advice on where to stay in Austin, the recipe I made up this week, or some thoughts from one of my sages, Goop is a little bit of everything that makes up my life.” I wonder if she’ll share advice for choosing baby names.

Josh Schwartz is certainly turning up the heat. The media has been buzzing about the first three episodes of this season’s “Gossip Girl” as the best, but episode four had my best friend and I squealing from shock and awe.
First things first, OMFG Lord Marcus is banging his step mom Lady Catherine? Ew. Seriously, my jaw hit the coffee table — an awesome twist that I never saw coming. And Vanessa, you sly little bitch, intending to catch Nate and Catherine doing the dirty-dirty, but catching that shocker instead…good thing you thought to snap that photo. Keep reading »

“Mad Men” is my favorite smart show on television (“America’s Next Top Model” is my favorite stupid show), partially because my loins desire the raw magnetism of Don Draper, but also because I absolutely love the compelling story lines driven by the show’s main actresses. Betty Draper’s character is of particular interest to me and I think she is portrayed so subtly by January Jones. But who the heck is the actress with the porn star-worthy name anyway? Well, for starters, she must have been born to fabulous parents — upon her birth in 1978 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, her parents named her after the character “January Wayne”, from Jacqueline Susann’s “Once Is Not Enough”. That just happens to be one of my favorite trashy reads — I mean, who names their kid after a character in one of the trashiest pill-popping novels of the 1970s? Awesome people, that’s who. Read on for more January Jones info, including the slew of Hollywood stars she’s dated. Keep reading »
Christian Siriano must be pissed. In Sunday’s New York Times Magazine, grammar/language columnist William Safire wrote about the adjective “hot” and how it is falling out of fashion as an indicator of cool. Apparently “Fierce is where it’s at.” Professor Connie Eble at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill took a survey of students and found that fierce no longer means “ferocious,” and has replaced “hot” as the word to use when describing something extremely attractive. Throughout his whole discussion, Safire neglected to share why “fierce” has risen in popularity — through Christian’s use of the word on Project Runway, of course! In our opinion, “fierce” won’t replace “hot” until people of both sexes and all sexual orientations use it. Have you ever heard a straight men say “fierce” in a non-joking manner?

While Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was mayor of her hometown of Wasilla, the city charged rape victims for their own rape examinations and her police chief fought to continue the practice as late as 2000. Wasilla was the only city to continuously resist a state law requiring cities to foot the bill for the exams, while Palin was in office from 1996 to 2000, said former State Representative Eric Croft, a Democrat who sponsored the legislation. A state law did however ban the practice in 2000. As the Republican Vice Presidential nominee, Palin often discusses her record as mayor of Wasilla, population approximately 7,000, which has led to close scrutiny of that record. Wasilla’s practice of billing rape victims for their rape exams while Palin was in office has gotten a great deal of coverage on the web and in the mainstream media. However, the question that keeps coming up is whether Palin knew of the practice and the police chief’s determination to continue it. Keep reading »
For as long as penises have existed, guys — and their girlfriends — have bestowed names on their best buds. In fact, I’m pretty sure back in the caveman era, popular dick-names were Harry, Larry and Bob. These days, however, the naming process has gotten a modern twist. A new website, NameYourWang.com, the first and only site devoted to, well, naming one’s wang, now makes it possible to register the name of a penis and receive a “Certificate of Authenticity” of ownership, too. Think of it like the pervy version of naming a star: just as corny, but maybe a bit more tongue-in-cheek, and at $14.50, less than 1/3 the price of cheapest star package. Just in case anyone’s wondering, I checked and “RuPaul” is still available. Keep reading »
I consider myself a bit of a celebrity sex tape connoisseur. Watching celebrities have sex for real, kind of reminds me that they’re human, just like the rest of us. Seeing celebrities use the toilet would probably have the same effect, but it’s not as fun. Anyway, here are the top eight you should really know about, where you might find them if they were carried in a video store, and some key tidbits in order to increase your potential to be a good dinner party guest. Because people LOVE to talk about celebrity sex tapes over tuna casserole, trust me.
