Vanity Fair has a new smear piece about Sarah Palin and thankfully this one was not dictated by Levi Johnston. According to this latest hit job, Alaska’s most famous pitbull in lipstick offered to get Bristol Palin and Levi married “if it would be good for the campaign,” threatens her employees, and is prone to ‘F-word’-filled arguments with her husband, Todd. My personal favorite part of the piece is where Levi extends a private apology to the Palins and the hockey mom asks him if he’s wearing “a wire” and if she is being recorded. (He was not.) That public apology that Levi issued? Allegedly, it was written by Todd Palin himself. Levi, through his lawyer, told Vanity Fair, “I had nothing to do with putting that statement together.”
But that’s not all … Keep reading »
“What are you up to tomorrow night?” The Juggler asked me last Tuesday morning. We were on the train to work, as had become our routine over the past two weeks. He held the pole with one hand, his other wrapped around my back, playing with the ends of my hair.
“It’s my cousin’s birthday party. Ugh,” I said, imagining how much I would rather be staying up into the wee hours of the night going from foreplay to sex, foreplay to sex, as had also become our routine, than twiddling my thumbs at a party with my family. I searched my head for the next evening I didn’t have plans. “But I’m free Friday,” I said.
“Cool,” he said, giving me a lingering kiss that totally turned me on again, before sliding out of the subway doors. “I’ll talk to you before then.”
Only he didn’t. Keep reading »
Combine history, design, and romance, and of course you get a winner: Originally fashioned as a hair restraint for samurai warriors, Mizuhiki grew into a Japanese cord-tying art form used as decorative symbolism. Playing with table design, Japanese company Oey combines Mizuhiki with chopsticks, binding them together with brightly colored twine. In the end, this symbolizes the act of enjoying a meal with a loved one and the wish of “being together forever.” (Aww!) Put these on the list for cute anniversary presents and wedding favors.
Apparently, Bravo wants to make it so that you’re never able to do anything but watch “The Real Housewives.” In addition to the Orange County, New York, Atlanta, New Jersey, and DC incarnations of the show, they have a new entry in the franchise starting on October 14. The city of choice? Beverly Hills. The houses are enormous, the jewels are over-the-top blingy, and the kids are insanely pampered with $50K birthday parties.
The cast is pretty amazing—and includes Kelsey Grammer’s ex-wife, the sister of Kathy Hilton, and a Maloof. After the jump, the new ladies and a preview. [People] Keep reading »
Rachel Zoe: Love her or hate her (and most people hate her), you can’t deny that she’s a force of fashion nature. She styles some of the most famous women in the world, has her own product line on QVC, her own TV show, and countless endorsement deals. The media generally has a skinny bone to pick with Rachel and her countless affectations and affections. (A New York Times reviewer called her “a pox on humanity.”) Yet I can’t help but be completely charmed.
Yes, she says dumb things. Yes, she talks in a stilted, lilting Valley Girl-all-grown-up accent. And yes, she’s so thin it almost hurts to look at her. But! She’s an independent successful woman who possesses one characteristic that we should all be trying to achieve: passion. Keep reading »
“I find it embarrassing that adults are like, ‘Taylor Swift is very talented.’ She’s not. She might be cute, but she’s horrible.”
— Chris Robinson, singer for the band The Black Crowes, who, strangely enough, I find embarrassing. [Contact Music] Keep reading »
