Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Breaking news! Jake Gyllenhaal is rocking some kind of mountain man beard. While the rest of the world is praying for a him to pick up a can of shaving cream and a razor, I am rejoicing in his lumberjack-ness. Clean-shaven is boring. Lumberjack is accessible and dirty hot. He’s just a hop, skip, and a jump away from getting an ox. [Us Weekly] After the jump, some more Paul Bunyans whose flannel shirts I’d like to rip off.
It ain’t easy being a scantily clad Abercrombie & Fitch model these days. Not only was Belgian male model Florian Van Bael allegedly paid $1,000 less than the female models at a seven-day photo shoot for Abercrombie on Long Island, NY, but he also was under the close eye of ad agency Shahid & Co., which allegedly monitored all the models’ drinking, eating, and workout habits while shooting.

As a teenager on “The Osbournes,” Kelly Osbourne was outspoken, opinionated and fat — and really comfortable in her own skin. I remember reading her cover article in winter 2003′s Bust magazine called “Kelly Osbourne: Independent Spirit” and thinking she was pretty awesome. In the years since Kelly’s reality TV show debut, she’s been on drugs, then quit drugs, gained a fiancé, and then lost a fiancé. She competed on “Dancing with the Stars” and now she’s on E!’s “Fashion Police” with Joan Rivers. In the middle of all this, Kelly lost a ton of weight. “I took more hell for being fat than I did for being an absolute raging drug addict,” she told Us Weekly last February. “I will never understand that.”
Kelly and her “new” body were recently on the cover of Shape magazine and she bragged to Us Weekly about how it was an “incredible experience” because “I have never worn a bikini in my life before yesterday.” The Frisky posted about it and yesterday almost 300 people found their way to The Frisky site searching for “kelly osbourne bikini.”
Know who was rolling her eyes at all this? Me. You know who thought I was being too harsh? Amelia. Naturally, we had nothing better to do with our time than to hash it out over IM. Bare your claws, ladies, because it’s time for a catfight! Keep reading »
“I didn’t eat for a day and I did about 2,000 sit-ups … I said, ‘Listen, I have two requests—good lighting and a warm room. That’s all I’m asking for.’ If I’m walking out with it all f**king hanging out there for the world to see then, well, I need good lighting and a warm room.”
I’m definitely one of those “live to eat” people, not an “eat to live” type. And so when I heard about My Social Chef blogger Petrit Husenaj’s chocolate and cheese sandwich my heart began to flutter. So many delicious, fatty calories! Husenaj’s sandwich, dubbed the “Bad Romance,” has all the important food groups — cheese, chocolate, bread and butter — and was inspired by his childhood in Belgium: “I came up with this cheese and chocolate sandwich as a fat kid spending a summer in Belgium and trying to get all things Belgian in my belly,” he says.
I had similar sandwich adventures when I was a kid … Keep reading »
