Neil Patrick Harris’s autobiography has been out for a week and, for shame, I missed it. Let me say this: It sounds way more engaging that Karl Ove Knausgaard’s 3600-page My Struggle, not least inasmuch as it is a (semi-) non-fiction choose-your-own adventure book in which you, as Harris, can, for example, choose to audition or not to audition for “Doogie Howser, MD,” and as the book’s description states, “get into a bizarre confrontation outside a nightclub with actor Scott Caan.”
Last week was a big one for Harris: His autobiography was released on Tuesday, and on Wednesday it was announced that he’ll be hosting the Oscars in 2015. Can you EGOT hosting? All he needs are the Grammy Awards. [Nerdist; Playbill; Huffington Post]

Accidents happen, even to good Catholics like the former-Prime Minister of the U.K.’s wife Cherie Blair. Her hubby isn’t the only one getting political — in interviews and in her book, the longtime birth control advocate pushes for the Church to embrace contraception. But that’s not the only thing she’s been pushing… In her gossipy new autobiography, Speaking For Myself, she openly talks about her happy accident — their third child, Leo, who was the result of forgetting to pack birth control on a vacation. Whoopsies! She also reveals that she slept with Mr. Blair on their first date. Salacious! (And yet totally relatable.) While her critics are screaming TMI from her tell-all, we’d like to applaud her for telling it like it is and standing up for something millions of women depend on! [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
