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 »
This is a week full of questions for me as I skim through the tabloids. Apart from the usual riddles—like “Why I am still reading news about Kate Gosselin?”—a new bunch of puzzles have emerged. After the jump, we’ve weeded out the unnecessary, superficial and mundane stories from this week’s fleet of tabloids and distilled it down to just the juiciest and most entertaining bits.

OK, so technically these are “busts” not action figures since they don’t have legs and aren’t really meant to be played with. In other words, you can’t make Bill, Sookie, and Eric have a threesome by rubbing their figurines together the way I might have done with Barbie, Ken, and Midge, but I digress. Bill and Sookie’s busts are pretty accurate, but Eric’s does not even come close to capturing ASkar’s essence, at least in the face. The body is pretty hot though. For a toy, er, display piece I mean. [$69.99 each, HBO] Keep reading »
