Do you ever feel old while watching movies like “Mean Girls” or shows like “Gossip Girl” and “90210″ because you’re completely out of the characters’ age range? Sometimes I do. I think to myself, “Why is this stuff so entertaining to me? I don’t have these issues anymore. Am I losing precious brain cells by watching fluff?” Well now we can enjoy bitchy entertainment without remembering our age, thanks to a little movie called “Bride Wars.” Keep reading »
I’m not gonna lie; part of why I wanted to see this movie is that it had my name in it. I didn’t read much, if anything about it, aside from seeing the poster, so I will tell you right off what I didn’t know until the film started: this is not really a chick flick, at least, in the sense of feel-good, “Sex and the City”-style romance. It’s dark and intense, and will make you cry…unless you have a heart of stone. But the humor here is highlighted by the otherwise intense drama (aka, a dramedy). It is a chick flick in that it centers around two sisters, whose bond is intense, combative, and holds lots of longtime hurt.

Anne Hathaway, so polite, so proper. She’s never so much as flashed a nipple or blinged a crunk cup. The girl is squeaky clean. But beneath her well-mannered exterior beats the heart of a secret spy. In a case of life imitating art, but better, Agent 99 is sleuthing her own life story and snitching too. Anne just played her dapper long-term boyfriend, Raffaello Follieri, for a fool. After years of loving him, she realized he was a dirty thief. He stole money from her charity and had plans to rob the Vatican, posing as the Pope’s CFO! Whoa. But this classic case of good girl going for bad boy ends well, thanks to some FBI involvement. She bravely turned him into the feds, but saved face and stayed with him while they investigated his schemes. Damn, she can act! It’s hard enough to survive an awful public break-up, but who knew behind the scenes little Annie Hathaway could take a bite outta crime? [Dlisted]

Anne Hathaway and her boyfriend of four years, Rafaello Follieri, split last week, and now he’s stuck behind bars until he raises $21 million in bail. This sucks, but what’s even worse is that he and Anne have a dog together, a chocolate lab named Esmeralda. Maybe this is a ploy to get Rafaello and his family some sympathy, but the New York Post reported that while Anne has been traveling around the world to promote Get Smart, the dog has been staying in Rafaello’s Trump Tower penthouse, and his mom, who came to New York from Italy for cancer treatment, is taking care of Esmeralda. A friend of Rafaello’s told the paper that Anne should come get her dog: “He can’t afford a dog walker and his mom has cancer.” Anne, please let me know if you want me to dog sit until you’re back in town.
