On Wednesday, Ashton Kutcher announced that his best friend isn’t Demi Moore—it’s Kabbalah leader, Rabbi Yehuda Berg. “My best friend? Yehuda Berg, To me, he’s not a rabbi. He’s my friend,” said Ashton. “If you truly want to change the world, you have to start by changing yourself. [Berg] taught me that and it’s been the most important lesson of my life.” [People]
Are we being “Punk’d”? As random as that might be, many celebrities are capable of maintaining friendships with normal people, even if those people get increasingly famous by association. Keep reading »
Did Demi forget to pack for their trip to New York? Or is Ashton really into the matchy-match couple thing? Either way: Ew. Fashion Week’s now got two hot messes that tried to clean up nice. [Manhattan, 9/11/09] Keep reading »
Of course I thought Johnny Depp
was dreamy in “21 Jump Street.” But my childhood crush didn’t turn truly psycho until I saw “Edward Scissorhands.” How did I express my obsession with Johnny? In a totally sane way. I tried to become him. One afternoon when I was home alone, I stole my mom’s manicure kit and taped the different implements to my hands to see what it would feel like to have real scissorhands. Crazy crush behavior or early indicator that I might have goth tendencies in my future? Either way … mortifying.
Inevitably, childhood celeb crushes are only good for one thing: They make you do very embarrassing things. Take, for example, this young lady, Melissa Bell, who may end up in therapy as an adult after she discovers that it might not have been the best idea to read her crush story, “Ashton Kutcher Fan Fiction: The Middle School Dance,” aloud to her school. Poor girl. [BuzzFeed]
Just to make sure that Melissa and I are not alone in our shame, I asked the other ladies at The Frisky to share their most humiliating celebrity crush moments. Some stories you won’t want to miss after the jump. Keep reading »
At this point, the cameos seem a lot more interesting than the plotline of upcoming prime-time drama “The Beautiful Life.” The show, which is centered around the lives of New York City models, has attracted a star-studded list of fashion industry types who play themselves, including designer Zac Posen and “Project Runway” judge Nina Garcia. Now add Max Azria, the man behind buzzy brands like BCBG Max Azria and Herve Leger. The designer is scheduled to appear as himself on an upcoming episode of the show, which debuts September 16 on the CW. Keep reading »
Who’s that towhead? Why, it’s Jessica Alba! She’s lightened her locks for her role in “Valentine’s Day,” which she’s currently shooting with the Kutch. [Los Angeles, 9/1/09] Keep reading »
“I walked down, and [fashion photographer] Mario Testino was in the crowd. He’s, like, ‘Who is that boy?’ Why is he walking so angry?’ And then, that started a buzz, and then [photographer] Bruce Weber booked me on an Abercrombie & Fitch shoot the next week. So it was just sort of like I had that moment that just sort of just popped things off.”

Sometimes celebrities are really generous and help save orphans and build houses for poor people and stuff. And many of them are volunteering their time for this website CharityBuzz.com, which auctions off time with celebrities for donations to the celebrity’s charity of choice. We like this idea, because you can hang out with your favorite star without incurring a restraining order! On the website right now: a Daytona/NASCAR weekend with Patrick Dempsey (current bid: $7,250); a visit to the set of “Five Killers” to meet Ashton Kutcher (current bid: $850); and lunch and a tarot card reading with Cyndi Lauper (current bid $6,444).

Sure, it would be an awesome opportunity to put your seduction of McDreamy plan into motion, but we’ve got ten better ideas that we hope Charity Buzz will take to heart. Here’s what we’d like to bid on: Keep reading »
A study at Germany’s Max Planck Institute has found that men who marry older women are more likely to die early than men who marry younger woman. Likewise, women who marry men 7 to 9 years older — or, get this, 7 to 9 years younger — increase their chances of dying early by a whopping 20 percent! And the bigger the age difference between two spouses, the greater chance a woman has of dying prematurely. Men, on the other hand, favor quite well when they marry younger women. Their chances of dying early “are cut by a fifth if their bride is between 15 and 17 years their junior.” Even marrying a woman just seven years younger reduces a man’s risk of premature death by 11 percent. Scientists say these figures may be a result of natural selection — of the cream-of-the-crop older men having the most success attracting younger, fertile women. “Another theory is that a younger woman will care for a man better and therefore he will live longer,” said institute spokesman Sven Drefahl. Maybe women with much older or younger mates are better off not marrying them. That way they won’t have the drama of addressing wedding invitations OR dying prematurely. Win-win!

Obviously, we’ve got an impostor here, but with lines like ‘water to wine it’s sleazy time’, we might not mind.
Ah, Easter! If Jesus were alive today, we’re pretty sure he would Twitter like Diddy because, really, it’s the best way to get the word out. Since we can follow Jesus, but not on Twitter, we’ll have to ask our favorite celebrities what they would do. Here’s how John Mayer, Martha Stewart, Ashton and more got their God on… Keep reading »
