Levi’s is selling new Curve ID jeans in three different versions: a “slight curve,” a “demi curve,” and a “bold curve.” The sizes in the various versions basically range from 2 to 14 (although I’m aware sizes are completely and non-sensically different from company to company.) The tag line for the ad campaign is “All asses are not created equal.” The models are three light-skinned women who appear to be Caucasian. Although “curviness” is relative, none of them are curvy in the way, say, J.Lo, Beyoncé, or Crystal Renn is curvy.
To some it’s just an ad campaign for “curvy” jeans. To others, it’s racist and sexist advertising. Keep reading »
Live the dream, capture the fantasy, in one of these totally fantastical houses. The folks at the Entertainment Lobby created a collection of some of the most unbelievable houses around — including a house and yard done up in the style of “The Simpsons” cartoon intro. And you thought you were obsessive! [Entertainment Lobby] Keep reading »
Rachel Uchitel has had a rocky road on “Celebrity Rehab.” She agreed to do the show to deal with her Ambien addiction and “emotional issues,” which most people assumed to mean her tendency to get involved with married and famous men—she was linked not only to Tiger Woods but also David Boreanaz. But in late July, she abruptly left the show after an intense therapy session and checked into a hotel. She returned less than 24 hours later, after hearing pleas from the producers and co-stars Janice Dickinson, Eric Roberts (bro of Julia), and Jason Wahler (of “The Hills”). The freak-out was apparently over having to talk about her father, who died of a cocaine overdose when she was 15.
Last week, Rachel visited the site of another trauma with Dr. Drew. She made the trek to Ground Zero. Keep reading »
Sydney Dalton was a Justin Bieber fan, but, like many teenagers, her tastes evolved and one day she and a few of her friends declared they were “over” the pop star in a YouTube video. In a truly, uh, punk rock move, they filmed themselves tearing down their Bieber posters. Anarchy! Of course, also like many teenagers, Dalton was only down on her idol for, like, a second, and deleted the video after she apparently decided she was into the Biebs again. But diehard Bieber fans were not amused by her “defection,” however momentary. Dalton has been harassed via Twitter so vehemently that her name became a trending topic, along with the copiously used hashtag #SlutneyDalton, and she’s even received death threats. Um, kids these days? Keep reading »
I’m not the type of woman that oohs and ahhs at flowers. Basically because they die, tend to grow mold, and are kind of smelly. But even I have to admit to being mesmerized by rainbow roses. These roses in colors of the rainbow or a crayon box are created by splitting a rose stem into several “pipes” and dipping each one into a different colored water. The roses absorb the water and transfer the color to the petals. It’s a similar effect to the chrysanthemum and food coloring experiment that elementary school science teachers favor. Rainbow roses were developed in Holland and run about $55 to $325. [The Fun Times Guide via Impact Lab] Keep reading »
