The Best Cries Of 2008

2008 was a year filled with ups and downs. We laughed, we cried, and we captured it all on camera! While 2009 promises plenty of tears — thanks to Brody Jenner’s upcoming show “Bromance,”, we must honor the whimper that was the past 12 months. So, to commemorate those who weren’t afraid to just let it all out, here are the Best Cries Of 2008:

10. Kenley Was Finally Humbled On “Project Runway”

Project Runway’s most hatable hack, Kenley, wouldn’t even tone it down when Tim Gunn gave her a talking to, but Diane von Furstenberg was finally able to break her! Just the mere sight of the fashion icon turned Kenley into mush. Damn, wrap dresses really do amazing things for women! Keep reading »

Is Oprah’s Weight Struggle The Secret To Her Success?

In case you live in a cave and have somehow avoided seeing images of Oprah recently, she’s put on some weight in the last couple of years: 40 pounds to be exact. In the January issue of O Magazine, out on newsstands today, Oprah opens up about her continued weight struggle in what’s become her signature way: like she’s confessing her sins — or at least her deepest vulnerabilities — to her closest confidante. “I’m embarrassed,” she writes. “I can’t believe that after all these years, all the things I know how to do, I’m still talking about my weight. I look at my thinner self and think, `How did I let this happen again?”‘

The Oprah/Sarah Palin Interview That May Never Happen

Oprah Winfrey told “Extra” last week that she had asked Sarah Palin to come on her show after the election, but instead Palin talked to other interviewers, including Matt Lauer and Larry King. Oprah sounded a little bitter — how could anyone say no to her?! Since Oprah may never get her interview, we took the liberty of creating a transcript for the Q&A that probably won’t happen.

OPRAH: “Please welcome Sarah Paaaaaaaliiiiiiiiiiiiin!”

    Brad Pitt Tells All: Kids, Angelina, His New Movie, & Poop

    Brad Pitt is on Oprah RIGHT NOW, but here’s the highlights of his solo interview with Miss Winfrey before his “Curious Case Of Benjamin Button” co-star, Cate Blanchett, came out. Apparently, the Jolie-Pitt kids are really bad at chewing their food and like things that smell funny. Maybe being their nanny wouldn’t be such a dream… Keep reading »

    Jennifer Aniston Dishes To Oprah About Brad, Angelina, & John Mayer

    Jennifer Aniston’s much anticipated appearance on “Oprah” yesterday did not disappoint. She clarified the comments she made about Angelina Jolie in Vogue (that the actress did something “uncool” by implying that she and Brad Pitt fell in love while filming “Mr. & Mrs. Smith”), assured everyone that she’s in perfectly happy place, thank you very much, and that she’s totally proud of what Brad Pitt has done with his life in the last few years. She also confirmed she’s back with John Mayer, but that they are not expecting twins. Clip above! I gotta say, I really do like Jennifer Aniston — she seems smart and independent and self-assured. You don’t need to choose to be on Team Jolie or Team Aniston — I’m on both! Keep reading »

    Nicole Kidman On Falling In Love For A Movie

    Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman appeared on “Oprah” yesterday to promote their epic love story “Australia”, directed by Baz Luhrman, out Thanksgiving weekend. One of the most interesting moments came when Nicole described how intently she devotes herself to portraying a love story, implying that during those moments in filming that she tries to actually feel in love with her co-star, only to drop the emotion once the camera stops. Clip above, and after the jump, the full “Australia” trailer. Keep reading »

    Peter Cook Blames Christie Brinkley For His Cheating Ways

    A few months ago, I wrote about an article in New York magazine, in which the author, Philip Weiss, tried to explain why men cheat — the basis of his argument was that people, especially men, are not meant, biologically, to be monogamous and that men who cheat are just fulfilling their perfectly natural urges. Boo-frickin’-hoo, I said then, and reminded that if men who got married never promised to be monogamous, they wouldn’t have to cheat. Well, unfortunately, Weiss is not alone in making a career out of explaining and justifying cheating — Gary Neuman, a recent “Oprah” guest, has a theory of his own and has written a book on the subject, called “The Truth About Cheating”. He believes men cheat because they’re experiencing loneliness in their relationship or marriage, they’re seeking affirmation from other women, and are not getting enough attention at home. In other words, it’s your fault ladies! And Oprah isn’t the only person giving this guy credence — Christie Brinkley ex Peter Cook, who cheated on her with his 18-year-old assistant, has taken a page straight out of the Neuman playbook and blames Brinkley for driving him to cheat.

    Halle Berry Defines Sexy

    Esquire, the men’s mag, just named new mom Halle Berry, “Sexiest Woman Alive, 2008.” Not bad for a 42-year-old woman who spent a quarter of the year with a baby bump! Humbled, yet perplexed, by the honor after being in the business for 21 years, Berry asked, “Does being the sexiest woman alive imply that I know a thing or two about what’s sexy and, possibly, about sex itself? I’m not sure, but here’s what I do know: I know damned well I’m sexier now than I used to be!” Girl, you always looked good to us! So, in honor of Ms. Berry, who reminds us that, “Sexy is not about wearing sexy clothes or shaking your booty until you damn near get hip dysplasia; it’s about knowing that sexiness is a state of mind,” here are some other sexy women we’d like to congratulate for being who they are, just like Halle! [Esquire]
