Today is Kiss & Make Up Day — are you fighting with someone and want to take this opportunity to mend things? I am, but I have tried to mend it, to no avail. Perhaps the person who’s refused my attempts to make peace will consider this another invitation. And after the jump, some celebrity couples we’d like to see kiss and make up — Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams got there before we could! Keep reading »

10. Jason Segel as Peter Bretter in Forgetting Sarah Marshall First of all, can we say full-frontal nudity? This guy has balls…no pun intended. His sexy TV star girlfriend (Kristen Bell) kicks him to the curb and he treks to Hawaii to mend his heart only to run into her and her new lover. He sticks it out, showing some courage and meets a new hottie along the way. Peter Bretter is a sensitive, loving fella who definitely won major points by the end of this film. Keep reading »

So, throw one on, take your passion, and make it happen.

We loved playing Hasbro’s Clue game when we actually had time to play board games, so we’re very excited about the updated version with a modern twist. The murder happens during a soiree at a millionaire mogul’s mansion and you have to determine which guest killed the host. Some weapons have changed — the revolver has been replaced by the more up close and personal barbell. Gone is the old school billiards room for the more luxurious spa. There’s also a new feature called the Intrigue Cards, which add suspense to the game because they can either help you solve the murder faster or result in a second victim. The tabloid-style instructions explain all the weapons, guests and rooms changes, and even the box looks sexier. See if you can figure out which rumors are true and which are hearsay to solve the crime of the century. [$15.99, Hasbro] Keep reading »
Next month, the first beauty pageant for nuns will debut. Anointing a Miss Sister Italy “will be a way to show there isn’t just the beauty we see on television but also a more discrete charm,” said priest Antonio Rungi. “Nuns are a bit excluded, they are a bit marginalized in ecclesiastical life.” But don’t expect nuns to strip off their habits and compete in swimsuit or evening gown competitions. While Antonio thinks that external beauty is a gift from God not to be hidden, the contest will take place online, with people voting for the nun “they consider a model,” he said.

The trailer for New York, I Love You was just released, and I am ever-so-slightly excited about it — even though it won’t hit theaters until February 13. I cannot believe they would tease us and then make us wait almost six months to see it. The New York version of Paris, je t’aime, New York, I Love You is actually 12 interwoven five-minute-long shorts that take place in all five of the city’s boroughs. While they used music that’s more than a little overplayed for the trailer (Mika’s “Love Today,” Regina Spektor’s “Fidelity,” and Feist’s “1234), it’s hard not to get excited about a movie with too many stars to list (Shia LaBeouf, Cloris Leachman, Natalie Portman, Hayden Christensen, Christina Ricci, Orlando Bloom, Ethan Hawke, Olivia Thirlby, James Caan, etc.). In fact, there are so many people in this movie, including Kevin Bacon, that the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon might be reduced to two or three degrees. Keep reading »
Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi just tied the knot last weekend officially making gay marriage trendhunter worthy. But according to Professor John Boswell, the former chairman of the history department at Yale University, gay marriage is an old-fashioned institution getting a new page in the history books. The Ivy League teacher has done extensive research on homosexuality throughout the ages and discovered that early Christians, including the Pope, were so cool with same-sex committed relationships, they even adorned their churches with frescoes of sweet man love. A painting found at St. Catherine’s Monastery in Mt. Sinai, Israel, depicts two early Christian Saints, St. Sergius and St. Bacchus, getting married back in the 4th Century, with Jesus as the best man. Accounts of their sainthood, up through the 10th Century New Testament, openly united and acknowledged them as “lovers.” But they’re just the tip of the gay Christian iceberg! Keep reading »
I have one question about the new cast of 90210, which includes Shenae Grimes, AnnaLynne McCord, and Jessica Stroup — where is the Andrea Zuckerman? Who is the school nerd? [CW Network premiere party, Malibu, CA, 8/24/08] Keep reading »
Last night’s episode of Mad Men finally answered so many lingering questions about Peggy Olson and brought up ever so many more about Don Draper — namely, “Can Draper ever change?” Additionally, the parallels and the bond between Peggy and Don were illuminated, a deeper side was revealed to Bobbie Barrett, and we learned Pete’s spunk was just as potent as ever. Oh, and Peggy is our hero. Keep reading »
On Friday afternoon, intern Annika and I went on a shopping trip to the Ralph Lauren Rugby store in Manhattan to check out their new interactive display (others are coming soon to Rugby’s Georgetown and Boston stores). At first we were a little confused about how it worked (partially because our iPhone was having network issues), but now that we understand it, we’re pretty sure this will develop into the future of shopping.
