“I’m ecstatic for her. I’m very happy for them. I think they’re perfect for each other. I wish them the best.”
—Hulk Hogan responds to the news that his ex-wife, Linda Hogan, is engaged to a 21-year-old who went to school with their kids Brooke and Nick. I honestly can’t tell if this is sincere or sarcastic. Thoughts? [Radar] Keep reading »
Just a year and five months after being caught smooching on camera in a hotel and subsequently denying that they were having an affair, Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes are shacking up together. Eddie and his two sons will be moving into LeAnn’s house, which is in a gated community in Los Angeles. And reports make it sound oh-so-romantic. A source tells People that the move is happening because Eddie’s lease is up and clarifies that it won’t be “an overnight thing,” but will happen slowly over a month. Another source tells E! Online, “Eddie and the kids are moving in with Leann to save money since Eddie lost his ‘CSI’ job. Mason is moving into the dog’s old room, and Jake is moving into LeAnn’s office.” Wait, the dog used to have a whole room? [People, PopEater]
Today, LeAnn confirmed the news on Twitter. “@peoplemag got it right! Thx for fairly and honestly reporting private, but happy news!” she said.
We do actually wish these two the best. But moving in is a big deal, especially when kids are involved. So, after the jump, some unsolicited advice. Keep reading »
I know a woman who has tried to cover her gray hairs by coloring them, but at-home kits, no matter what the box says, really suck at covering gray hairs. So she’s tried, at different times, blending the gray hair with both light and dark hair. It hasn’t worked. But I say she should embrace her grays because she’s worked hard for them. I admire 46-year-old model Kristen McMenamy for choosing to color a chunk of her dark hair in order to have a head-full of silver, instead of the other way around. She looks gorgeous! McMenamy even made the August cover of Dazed & Confused and the pages of Vogue with her hair, showing that gray hair could be more than a trend for fall, but a statement for women about embracing your age. Will you go gray or color your hair? [Refinery 29, Vogue, DazedDigital.com] Keep reading »
I have a favorite independent bookstore near my office. There are tables full of new fiction and non-fiction, shelves filled with New York Times bestsellers, and one particular bookshelf full of pastel pink and purple books. These pink and purple books, of course, are in the “chick lit” section. Even without searching for titles like Confessions of a Shopaholic, you can tell from the rose- and lavender-colored hues that this bookshelf is where you will find the fluffier books which are primarily written for women, by women.
But one book critic has had enough of this “flouncy frivolity.” Imogen Russell Williams from the U.K.’s Guardian newspaper finds it “almost impossible” to pick up a pink, “candy coated” book. Particularly when the book in question is being marketed to teen girls, Williams writes, “This kind of packaging often does a disservice to thought-provoking content, because knee-jerk anti-pinkers like me assume whatever’s inside must match the cover for ersatz, grinning emptiness.” Keep reading »
Look, it’s Madonna showing Taylor Momsen, 16, how to work it, work it. Madge was directing and photographing Miss Momsen for a commercial featuring the former’s Material Girl line collaboration with daughter Lourdes Ciccone, 13. Is it wrong to be worried for the children? [NYC, 7/28/10] Keep reading »
