A few months back, our dear Snooki tweeted, “I have mind blowing news! I am officially reading my first book! Lmao! Nicholas Sparks ‘dear John!’ … I’m proud of myself.” But now, our favorite lady from “Jersey Shore” has graduated from reading books to writing them. Snooki will be releasing her first book in January, via publisher Simon & Schuster, who we hope have very patient copy editors on staff considering the grammatical atrocities of the tweet above. It’s called A Shore Thing and it’s a novel about a “girl looking for love on the boardwalk.” In other words, it’s thinly veiled fiction. And sounds totally boring.
After the jump, eight book concepts we think would’ve been a little better for Snooks. Perhaps her follow-up? Keep reading »
Yesterday Rachel Zoe announced that she and her gay husband, Brad Goreski, were splitting up … amicably. That may not be the case after all. As it turns out, Brad’s frou-frou statement about “spreading his wings and soaring” was code for he’s sick of doing all the work and having Rachel take all the credit. Keep reading »
Prolific actor Tony Curtis, father of Jamie Lee Curtis, passed away yesterday at the age of 85 from cardiac arrest. In honor of him, here’s a little clip from “Some Like It Hot,” which he starred in with Jack Lemmon and Marilyn Monroe. Tony plays “Josephine” a struggling musician who dresses as a woman to escape some gangsters. When he meets Marilyn’s character, “Sugar,” he woos her disguised as an oil heir named “Junior.” The movie has some serious cross-dressing and comedic madness. I suggest a screening this weekend to pay tribute to him. [Newser] Keep reading »

What do you want for free at work? Keep reading »
Boy, models sure grow old fast these days. In Barneys’ fall 2010 catalog, model Lindsey Wixson, who is all of 16, has gray hair. The text-heavy fashion story is actually pretty adorable. The images are accompanied by a funny tale about a girl who moves into a new apartment where she falls in love with a mysterious, enigmatic cat. It’s so … literary.

Blink and you might have missed it: The revolutionary first on-air kiss between “Modern Family” gay couple Mitchell and Cam took place last night, and it was about as steamy as a kiss between a grandson and his grandma. The bigger kiss in the scene was between Mitchell and his father Jay. As if to show that not all same-sex affection is the same (of course), Mitchell and his father peck before he and Cam do.
