Oh, television, you are a good companion. Thank you for always providing a good time and never talking back. This week, it’s all about oversized award shows: Monday brings you the 2010 Miss Universe Pageant, then on Sunday the Emmy Awards. Oh, and the season finale of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” Keep reading »
The Cut puts it best: “The videos Coco Rocha just posted of her wedding are either a wonderful or wonderfully cruel thing to thrust in your face on a rainy Monday morning.” Too true. Watch as the 21-year-old model marries James Conran in a French castle, and your dream of getting married at the nearest White Castle may be done forever. It’s all very spectacular, romantic, and shot like a million-dollar movie. Not enough wedding porn for you? Fear not, this is only the trailer. Watch the 18-minute mini-movie after the jump.

In The Girl Who Plays With Fire, the second book in the Stieg Larsson series, off-kilter heroine Lisbeth Salander blows major cash in an Ikea shopping spree (it is Sweden after all). Apartment Therapy has compiled (nearly) all of her purchases into this handy image based on the product details revealed in the book. The only thing we would have done differently is throw in a Billy’s Pan Pizza for fun (even though you can’t buy Lisbeth’s favorite frozen food at Ikea). [Apartment Therapy] Keep reading »
What do a mini-pony and “Project Runway”‘s Tim Gunn have in common? Well, not much — except that I consider both to be my spirit animals. What’s a spirit animal you ask?

It needs to be said: Jennifer Aniston literally cannot carry a movie. Her latest, “The Switch,” bombed in its opening weekend, making only $8.1 million at the box office. This is significantly less than the opening weekend numbers for “The Bounty Hunter,” that horrifyingly bad movie she made with Gerard Butler, which was panned by critics and hated by audiences. That movie made over $20 million in its first three days and was considered a big ol’ failure. Aniston’s other recent films have done piss poor too: “Love Happens” made only $8 million its first weekend, while “Management” did less than $400,000. “He’s Just Not That Into You” was Aniston’s last big money maker, but she was only one player in an ensemble; “The Break-Up” was the last movie headlined by Aniston (alongside Vince Vaughn) to be considered a true success, making $39.2 million its opening weekend.
