I might have just had a heart attack. According to Nylon, nail polish brand OPI is planning to launch a limited edition collection of colors inspired by the original 90210 cast members. Hold the &%$#ing phone. This is the awesomest thing I’ve heard since they confirmed Brenda was going to be on the spin-off. My brain is already spinning with ideas for shades!
Virgin/Whore A lovely opalescent pink shade which represents Donna Martin’s purity (well, until she gave it up to David) and her reputation for having the trampiest wardrobe on primetime during the ’90s.
Judgey Wudgey White Stark white for Kelly’s uppity “I’m such an angel” attitude — a perfect match for her cocaine addiction from season five.
Pouty & Pissed A greyish blue for Miss Moody herself, Brenda Walsh.
Euphoria Black Emily Valentine probably totally rocked gothic black nail polish the night she got Brandon to take “euphoria”. Keep reading »
The L Word has one hot television season left, tear. But it looks like there’s hope for at least one lucky lady! At the Television Critics Association press tour, Showtime’s Entertainment President, Robert Greenblatt promised that there’s a spin off in the works. Hip, hip, hooray! The best part is, you won’t have to rely on your pricey cable provider for some sweet lesbo lovin’, as these are actually webisodes that will be available on the internet. Plus, Greenblatt also promised that The L Word will continue on the web “to a large extent”, and whatever that mumbojumbo means, it’s great news for fans. After all, how could they abandon us when gay marriage is going legal, teen queen Lindsay Lohan just switched teams, and the #1 song on the Billboard Charts is Katy Perry’s “I Kissed A Girl (And I Liked It)”?! The sixth season of the groundbreaking show goes into production this fall for its 2009 slot and the spin-off will be taped simultaneously. L Word creator Ilene Chaiken is currently working on casting, so until she’s got her ladies lined up, she’s keeping quiet about the new program’s deets. We hope they give the show to sexy hairstylist Shane or even quirky blogger, Alice. But really, like all our favorite things, we’ll take it where we can get it. [After Ellen]

If you desperately want a divorce but your significant other does not, the only logical thing to do is hire an impersonator. Clearly. A man in India brought a woman who pretended to be his wife to court, and the two said they sought a mutual divorce and were granted one immediately. Unfortunately for him, the man’s real wife found out about it, and the original divorce was suspended. Now he’s in trouble with the law and also been charged with cheating. Lying never gets you anywhere. [Reuters] Keep reading »
Mad Men is back on Sunday! It’s one of the few TV shows of true quality that I watch (though, crap, I really hope it’s time slot doesn’t conflict with Big Brother…). Anyway, while Jon Hamm does a mean job playing sexy ad exec Don Draper, the true stars of the show in our eyes (but clearly not the stinkin’ decision makers behind the Emmy nominations) are the female characters portrayed by Elizabeth Moss, January Jones, and Christina Hendricks. It seems kind of ironic that a show which portrays the sexist working conditions in corporate America in the 1960′s was honored only for its male cast members, but we digress. These women are hot not just in looks, but in talent. We can’t wait to see what havoc Betty Draper, Peggy Olson, and Joan Holloway will cause those boys in Season Two. [AMCTV.com] Keep reading »
When I was in nursery school, my mom always dressed me in overalls because they were easy to take on and off. That is until she came home from a shopping trip, and I exclaimed, “Openwalls, openwalls, all the time openwalls. What do you think I a farmer?” Well now, I’m totally loving this trend. NOT overalls, but the more adult, updated version of the jumpsuit because it’s just as easy to wear as a dress. The secret is in the proportions, fit and fabric. And of course accessories play a part — jewelry and a handbag will keep the look more chic, less Air Force flight suit. Keep reading »
After studying the nerve networks of a bunch of vertebrates, scientists think that fish were the first animals to make audible mating calls. “I’m not saying fish have a language or are using higher powers of the brain,” said lead researcher Professor Andrew H. Bass of Cornell Uniersity. “But some of the networks of neurons, nerve cells in the brain, are very ancient.” Andrew and his team have found two sounds used by fish: A humming sound the male makes to attract the female to his next, which sounds like a motor running, and a grunt, used to protect nesting territory.

The Dark Knight
Starring Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Aaron Eckhart, & Gary Oldman
Directed by Christopher Nolan
Before walking in the theater (and for the record, I bought my ticket four days in advance because it was obvious every showing the opening weekend was going to sell-out) I already knew The Dark Knight was going to be my favorite movie that I’ve seen in awhile. And I told everyone I knew. Which is why it’s a good thing it did turn out to be as amazing as I expected, because I HATE having to lie in order to save face. Unlike a lot of movies that are way overhyped and don’t live up to our expections, cough, Sex and the City, cough, The Dark Knight, and especially Heath Ledger, was everything I hoped and more. I left really psyched and also really pissed off that Heath was dead and wouldn’t be back for the third in the new series of darker Batman movies, while idiot trolls like Brooke Hogan still walk around flapping their gums. Sigh. Not fair. Anyway, if you haven’t seen the movie and don’t want a second spoiled, don’t read on.

iCarly‘s 15-year-old star Miranda Cosgrove told People she hasn’t gone on a real date yet. “I can go on double dates with my friends. It’s the big time to get a boyfriend, I guess. My best friend goes on a date and calls me and tells me all the details like 20 times.” This got us thinking about our first dates…I think my mom drove me and the boy to the movies. Keep reading »
