Star Couplings: Claire Danes Is Engaged!

  • Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy are engaged. We approve — he is a major upgrade from her past relationships. Plus, he has an accent. [Us Weekly]
  • Tiger Woods’ wife, Elin Nordegren, gave birth to the couple’s second child: Charlie Axel Woods. No doubt “Axel” will be the kid’s golfer name. [People]
  • Usher’s wife, Tameka Foster, went to Brazil for some plastic surgery, and there were major complications. It’s so bad that a neurosurgeon from LA had to go down to help fix her. Let this serve as a warning: Do not go to South American for plastic surgery! Especially when your husband can afford to pay for you to get it done by a legit doctor. [Dlisted]

    For The Week Of February 9-15, 2009

    Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

    We all need to fall off the wagon sometimes, because no one is perfect and because it feels good. Yes, this week will bring the downfall of something that will irritate, but it won’t kill you. So, move it along fast with going all out decadent this week to clean it out of your system. After enough purging, you’ll have earned your stripes to get back on the pony.

    Libra (September 23 – October 22)

    Friendships can emerge in funny places, as you’ll see what sprouts out from underneath you this week, giving you reason to pause and wonder where you are. Sure, this might be confusing to you, but whatever the case, know the outcome is pleasant and you should take this as your lesson that the world hasn’t completely gone to hell yet.

    Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

    There’s a fine line in balancing your private life and your career, and as the responsibilities get more intense, it’ll make life more hectic than it’s been in a while. The demands will come in from everywhere, with an ability to blindside you into total bitchdom. Whatever. Take this as a hint of where your true priorities lie and proceed accordingly.

    Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

    Not all that you see is what is happening. This week, a major spiritual turn of events is on the agenda and could have you rethinking your plans in life. Thankfully, the switch up will be for the better and bring in that much needed inspiration that’ll give you a push towards a better life, one in which you finally feel as if your connecting to something or someone of a higher level.

    Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

    It’s hard to tell what happens in that scheming little mind of yours and this week, it’ll be the most intense. However, if you want to seize the power and get extra insight on that certain someone you’ve been dangling close to your heart, then make that move to turn up the heat. Intimacy in on the menu and it’ll be up to you to place that order.

    Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

    Your relationship woes will be getting intense as the negotiations continue and have you fuming out your ears. However, this is all necessary to start shaping the life and love you want, all be it with or without the current state of affairs. Realize at the end of the day, the only thing you should know is compromising your own happiness is not an option.

    Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

    Just because you love someone, doesn’t mean you always have to give into their needs, as if they are more important than you. Sure, be nice and offer help when asked, but don’t give yourself over like you are some slave, because when it comes down to it, you’re only asking to be traveling on a one way street with behaviors like that.

    Aries (March 21 – April 19)

    Just when you think you found someone that rocks your world, you discover another side to him that has you feeling as if you might have had a temporary loss of judgment and needing to find the exit door fast. Whatever. Screw the guilt and run while you still have a chance of being written off as nuts. After all, you have the rep of fleeting love affair master to uphold.

    Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

    Screw bureaucracy and any sort of rules that hold you back. You know you don’t have to follow the pack and the only reason you do is because you’re lazy. You owe it to yourself and humanity to share your precious ideas, so shake up your foundations and lay your ideals on harder surfaces. Time to live out louder.

    Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

    You might have a bigger mouth than most, but being louder doesn’t automatically make you right. This time around, be a sweetie and ask before sharing too many of your opinions, as some things are just better left unsaid. Yes, your best bet to turn it out with that special someone is to assume the role of supporting cast, rather than the star.

    Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

    A breakthrough with money issues with your baby is coming and it’ll put you both on a whole new playing field, as you will be able to open up to a new level of trust you didn’t think could happen. Seems there is more to your relationship that just sex and codependence, as you’ll find your logic works just as succinctly.

    Leo (July 23 – August 22)

    An offer is coming that’ll be hard to resist, but unfortunately it’ll mean sacrificing something else in your life that you cherish. As this decision puts you firmly on the fence, don’t be hasty in making decisions, as making the wrong choice will breed much bitterness. While there isn’t an easy solution, there is one that can work if you give it time to emerge.

    Um, REALLY, Chris Brown? Really?

    So, here’s the Grammy scoop. Both Rihanna and Chris Brown were scheduled to appear AND perform at the Grammy Awards tonight, but at the last minute, both canceled. Why? Chris Brown is apparently being investigated on an assault charge, for allegedly beating on a woman at 12:30 this morning. The woman’s name has not been released, but many are speculating that the victim was Rihanna. This is totally unconfirmed, I am just trying to keep y’all informed of what’s known and being discussed so far. [DListed] Keep reading »

    Makeup: What’s With the Kid Stuff?

    Most little girls (and even some boys!) have a moment where they play in mom’s makeup, pretending to be a grown-up woman. But is the reverse true as well: do grown women like to play in makeup that looks to be for little girls?

    Barbie for Stila, featuring makeup mimicking Barbie’s looks over the past half-century appeared in January. Blue Smurf makeup for Too Faced also came in January and a Hello Kitty collection from M.A.C. — a pink kitty adorns all-black makeup cases — debuts this February.

    I love the Smurfs and Barbie as much as the next girl, but what’s up with all the cartoon characters on makeup? And what’s next? Care Bear-inspired pastel nail polish? Strawberry Shortcake red lip gloss? Dare I even suggest orange Garfield eyeshadow? Help me make sense of all this kitsch, after the jump…. Keep reading »

    Valentine’s Day Slideshow: 10 Dresses That Will Have Him Smitten

    vday dress 1 jpg
    Valentine’s Day is on the way and we realized this morning that we’ve got not a stitch to wear. Hours of e-browsing, however, revealed a world of dresses appropriate for all sorts of bodies and budgets. Because we love you too much to keep these finds to ourselves, here goes…

    Herve Leger’s band-aid dresses are the quintessential sexpot uniform. If you’re not looking to drop $1,450 for the ass-compressing power of those elastic straps, try the BCBG variation above for $338. You’ll get the same body-hugging look with a little less wallet worry.

    *Confident, curvy ladies and their stick-like counterparts alike will pull this one off with ease. If you’re boyish or pear shaped, click on for something a little more friendly to your body.

    Mind Of Man: 25 Things About Me, John DeVore

    1. I think I’m awesome, but seriously, why do you think I’m awesome?

    2. I can speak dolphin. Which is how I help them.

    3. I don’t have a driver’s license and I don’t know how to drive a car. But I know how to drive the ladies wild and I have a license to freak, freak you sweet and spicy, freak you like a jungle cat made out of lava.

    4. I write poetry. Here’s a sample, “She walks in beauty, like the night/Of cloudless climes and starry skies/And all that’s best of dark and bright/Meets in her aspect and her eyes.” I just made that up, right now, on the spot.

    5. Yes I can, did, will, etc. Keep reading »

    What’s With Women’s Fashion Mags Hiring Male Sports Star Interns? And When Can We Get One?

    David Beckham*, what hath you wrought?

    First, the New York Rangers’ left wing Sean Avery interned at Vogue and blogged for about everything from what’s in his closet (Dries Van Noten, Chanel) to what it’s like fracturing one’s spleen on the ice.

    Now, Philadelphia Eagles football player, Stewart Bradley, (who is a total stud muffin, BTW) is interning at Elle magazine. The Philadelphia Daily News reports that the 6’4″, 255 lb. linebacker may even be working at Fashion Week later this month.

    Hmm, I’d be interested to know if all of Elle‘s interns get to work at Fashion Week.

    (*Of course, Becks hasn’t actually interned at a fashion magazine, so this is not exactly his fault. But Becks is responsible for the idea that gifted athletes could also be metrosexual fashionistas. Why, just this week we posted a pic of Becks in his undies, posing for Armani.) Keep reading »

    Ramona Quimby Gets Prettified

    Before I got obsessed with the Little House On The Prairie series or the Anne of Green Gables series, and well before I tackled Sweet Valley High or V.C. Andrews, I was obsessed with Ramona Quimby, the protagonist in Beverly Cleary’s AMAZING series of books. To this day, there are two scenes I remember vividly — when Ramona squeezed and entire fresh tube of toothpaste into the sink, because she just couldn’t resist, and when Ramona’s mom served tongue for dinner. Those books were freaking awesome and in 1988, there was even a shortlived, Canadian-produced TV series based on the series, starring Sarah Polley as Ramona.

    Well now Ramona is headed to the big screen, which would be exciting, if not for the casting. In the forthcoming “Beezus & Ramona” (also the title of the first book in the series), Ramona will be played by “up-and-coming” actress Joey King, while, Beezus, Ramona’s older sister, will be played by…wait for it…Disney pop star Selena Gomez. Say WHAT? Keep reading »

    Ryan Gosling Responds To Rachel McAdams’ Downgrade With An Upgrade?

    According to, Ryan Gosling and Natalie Portman have been hanging out and “flirty texting,” ever since meeting a few weeks ago at Ryan’s regular DJ gig in Los Angeles. If this is true, Gosling has totally scored a post-split point on Rachel McAdams, as Natalie Portman is a much, much better rebound fling than Josh Lucas. I’m still holding out hope for a Ryan and Rachel Reunion (before or after an Amelia and Ryan Quickie), but I have to say, Ryan and Natalie make a lovely bit o’ sense together. She’s intelligent, talented, and not a fame-baller. I am happy to co-sign this pairing, at least temporarily. [Lainey Gossip] Keep reading »

    The 12 Most Ridiculous Names For Beauty Products

    “Who’s She” red, “Hollywood Nights” hot pink, “Mauve-lous Memories” — clever names for makeup colors are supposed to seduce you into buying cosmetics. Sadly, some manufacturers have completely missed the mark and named their goods badly. While Wendy pointed out some clothing items have become fashion victims because of their uncool names, here’s a round up of the ugliest names for beauty products…
