Perhaps to lessen the blow of the fact that this is Oprah
‘s last season, Anderson Cooper
has announced that he is getting into the daytime television game next fall with a new show, which he’ll do in addition to “Anderson Cooper 360.” He said in a statement, “Over the course of the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to work on a number of daytime programs. The format is unique and you can really go in-depth on a wide range of fascinating and compelling stories. With this new program I hope to relay important information and relate to people and the audience in a completely different way.” And by ‘new way,’ we hope he means he’ll be just as hilarious as he was during his guest hosting spots on “Live with Regis and Kelly.” Check out the clip above where he thigh dances with Kelly Ripa.

When it comes to cosmetics, how important is the packaging to you? Are you likely to buy something just because it has something distinctive on it? Like, for example, MAC‘s new Disney-themed makeup collection, which features cartoon character designs of some of the empire’s villains like Cruella De Ville, the Evil Queen from Snow White, and Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty. This is just our opinion, but to us, these products feel a bit like your normal MAC purchases simply re-packaged with new graphics. And we also kind of feel like from afar, pulling out an Evil Queen lip gloss from your purse might look like you’re lacquering up with the souvenir you got from your last Disneyland trip (or the souvenir you stole from your 11-year-old cousin’s makeup box). After all, regular Disney kid makeup (bottom lip gloss images) seem fairly similar, at least in the straightforward packaging and aesthetic. No? [Refinery 29, PartyCity] Keep reading »

If you’ve read the news at all lately, you have heard of the trials and tribulations of Bishop Eddie Long. The Atlanta mega-church pastor is accused of sexual coercion of young men within his flock. Four men filed lawsuits last week claiming Long, a televangelist, forced them to have sex. Through a spokesman, the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church pastor has categorically denied the charges against him. We will leave the sexual assault allegations to the lawyers. But even if he is found not guilty of sexual assault, Eddie Long has a well-established history of abusing power of another kind: his “relationship advice” book, What A Man Wants, What A Woman Needs, is chock full of swill that preaches keeping your trap shut, also known as “wifely submission.” Keep reading »
