“The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills”: This Is Your Face On Botulism

I didn’t think it was possible to top the madness that is those bitches in New Jersey, but “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” may have done it. Last night’s premiere was seriously off-the-hook. Where do I even begin? Oh, how about with the plastic surgery disaster above with Taylor, who paid a visit to Adrienne’s husband for a little botulism. Susannah has informed me that she suspects Taylor isn’t getting the usual Botox, but Dysport, another brand of the stuff that causes those weird facial bubbles you see. Apparently it goes away after 30 minutes, which is a relief, because I am pretty sure that would be the end of Taylor and Adrienne’s friendship.

But temporary facial deformities were only the beginning of the hot mess that was “RHBH”! More, after the jump … Keep reading »

Shopping Guide: Chunky Fishermen Sweaters

Myth has it that the “fisherman” sweater, characterized by its prominent cable knit design, was used by seamen as a kind of ID card. Some hypothesize that wives knitted these sweaters with designs specific to their family clan so that if their husbands should drown, their bodies could potentially be identified by the knit pattern of his clothing. Creepy! Today, we largely reinterpret these cozy cover-ups as “chunky cable knit sweaters.” Use the ultra-warm goods as fall jackets now, and come winter, layer them to create an armor against cold.

Help A Girl, Save The World


The video above is a project by The Girl Effect, a nonprofit group that believes that by positively impacting the lives of women and girls living in poverty you can change the world for the better. We couldn’t agree more. Helping a girl to become educated, stay healthy and self-determined has a profound impact on the well-being of communities and countries.

Heather Matarazzo, Nikki Blonsky To Star In “Manson Girls” About Charles Manson’s Ladies

Promising to be just as violent as any Bruce Willis flick, yet 1,000 times more creepy, Hollywood indie actresses are signing up for “Manson Girls,” a flick about Charles Manson and the young women in his life. Heather Matarazzo (“Welcome To The Dollhouse”), Thora Birch (“American Beauty”), and Nikki Blonsky (“Hairspray”) have all signed on to play impressionable — some would say stupid — girls drawn in by the charismatic cult leader and his group, The Family. Members of the Manson Family were known for committing crimes, most notably the gruesome murder of pregnant actress Sharon Tate, who was then married to filmmaker Roman Polanski. According to the synopsis, “Manson Girls follows a young girl from a wealthy Malibu family who fell under Manson’s spell.” No word yet on who will play Charles Manson, but I can think of half a dozen dudes with the scary facial hair and crazy eyes to pull it off.
