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 »
According to LaineyGossip.com, 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 »
“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…

Jennifer Aniston has been known to play some rather pathetic movie characters in the name of comedy. But what’s really funny is that her movies tend to reflect what has happened in her life. Aniston just signed on to the film “The Baster,” about a woman who wants to have a baby through artificial insemination, but doesn’t realize her best guy friend has switched her sperm sample with his own swimmers. Perhaps she’s testing the single motherhood waters with this film? After the jump, examples of films where Aniston essentially played herself. Keep reading »
When you’re really attracted to a man, it can be hard to tell if he’s attracted to you — especially if he doesn’t know if he’s gay. Even a sexpert like myself has been blindsided by a boyfriend’s (or two) sexuality. But just like cheaters, there are some tell-tale signs if he’s homosexual. So, look out for the red flags that show he should be waving a rainbow one.

Way before MGMT, Weezer, Kurt Cobain, and even Bob Dylan, Buddy Holly made nerd rock cool with his iconic black-rimmed glasses and according The Guardian the dweeb look is BACK. Channel this legend’s look—who died 50 years ago this month—and hopefully his visionary spirit with a pair of these geeky-glam specs.
1. These slim black-and-pewter framed glasses will look effortlessly hip on most face types. [$280, Oliver People]
2. It takes a brave girl to pull off these bold glasses, but you can do it, girl. [$77, Guess]
3. Red-frames are a fun (and flattering) twist to this retro look. [$550, Selima Optique]
4. These wide-framed bad boys are both cool and chic. [$130, Ray Ban]

Kim Petras has a lot going on in her life, and she’s only a teenager. She was signed to a record label and released a CD; her first single, “Last Forever,” became popular on MySpace and YouTube; she works as a model; oh, and she also had a sex change. Kim Petras use to be Tim Petras. Only 16., she began hormone replacement therapy at 12. By 14, she was officially a girl. Recently, she finished gender reassignment surgery. She told The Sun, “I was asked if I feel like a woman now, but the truth is I have always felt like a woman. I just ended up in the wrong body.” She’s believed to be the world’s youngest transsexual. These days, she’s studying to be a fashion designer. What ambition at such a young age! [AOL]
