Purrfect Singer, Dancer and Actress Eartha Kitt Dies At 81

Eartha Kitt, the “Santa Baby” crooner and former Catwoman, died of colon cancer at 81 on Christmas Day in Connecticut. The self-proclaimed “sex kitten” began her career as a dancer in the famed Katharine Dunham troupe and cabarets, but progressed to acting and singing on stage, in movies and on television. She won two Emmys, and was also nominated for several Tonys and two Grammys. Kitt is well-known for her feline-like movements and sultry voice, but she is also remembered for an anti-Vietnam War comment she made at a White House Luncheon hosted by Lady Bird Johnson. “You send the best of this country off to be shot and maimed,” she told the group of about 50 women. “They rebel in the street. They don’t want to go to school because they’re going to be snatched off from their mothers to be shot in Vietnam.” Keep reading »

Britney To Stop Biting And Other Celeb New Year’s Resolutions

The great thing about a new year? You get to make a fresh start. And once the champagne has been finished and the confetti has fallen, it’s time to put those resolutions into action — well, at least for a week or two. We mere mortals aren’t the only ones resolving to hit the gym more frequently, call Granny more often and save more of that paycheck. Celebrities from Britney Spears to a duchess (and we don’t mean Fergie) are vowing to make some ch-ch-changes. Here’s who’s doing what and why…

Britney Spears
After a helluva year, the pop tart has amazingly landed on her dancing feet, but she says there’s still work to be done. “I would like to stop worrying so much [in 2009],” she told Glamour, “because I worry all the time. And to learn how to be happier, just in general. I have to learn to take things not so seriously. And to stop biting my nails!” Keep reading »

Have You Given Up Champagne Toasts Because Of The Recession?

The Times reports that champagne sales are down this holiday season and not necessarily because people can’t afford the bubbly. Amid layoffs, foreclosures and other economic losses, as well as a shortage of the usual celebratory occasions like “mergers, closings, bonuses and office parties,” “People just don’t want to look extravagant today,” said Paul Grieco, a Manhattan restaurateur. “They still want to drink, so they cut out the Champagne and go directly to whatever they’re drinking with dinner.” Convinced this includes sparkling wine priced $10 to $20, “the sweet spot these days for good wine values,” the Times gathered a wine panel to taste test 25 bottles, admitting that, “While our price range was $10 to $20, most of the wines in the tasting were $15 to $20.” This makes total sense since a $15 bottle of sparkling wine looks so much less extravagant than a $15 bottle of champagne. “Let’s be honest,” the reporter mused, ”none of these bottles will match a very good Champagne. But they cost half what you would pay these days for the least expensive Champagne.” Half as much, huh? Clearly the Times has never heard of Andre.

So have you been cutting down on your Champagne toasts this holiday season because of the recession? And if so, what are you drinking it its place? [NYTimes]

The Snuggie: The Perfect Winter Onesie

Currently, my most favorite infomercial is for the Snuggie which is basically an adult (well, they make ‘em for children too) onesie. According to the infomercial, it’s perfect for wearing around the house and to outdoor winter sports games. It is literally the most heinous and stupid thing you could ever wear, but I have to admit it looks comfy. I would take mine up a notch with some Uggs. Keep reading »

Ask The Astrosexologist: Can A Scorpio & A Virgo Find Love Online?

I have been emailing and talking on the phone with a man across the county who I met through a group online. His birthday is 9/10. I was born on 11/15. We get along great, enjoy the same things and I’ve developed very warm feelings for him. He says he looks forward to meeting me, as we are both traveling to meet with other members in our group next year. But I sometimes get mixed messages from him, which makes me sad, since we have been communicating for six months everyday. Then he will call me, even if I don’t call him.
