It used to be that celebrities were shrouded in mystery, lightyears out of the atmosphere that “normal” people occupy. Thanks to gossip magazines and that little thing called Twitter, Hollywood has no secrets anymore. I can’t speak as to whether this is for better or for worse, but it’s certainly … interesting. Have you ever speculated what it might be like to see celebrity beauties like, say, Jennifer Aniston or Blake Lively up close and personal, the way they air their lives out for the world to
see read? Well, speculate no more — Celebrity Close-Up has it taken care of. They’ve got the closest of close-ups of the stars, hence the name, and their own tagline says it best: “Get close to celebrities! Really close. So close that you will beg to be taken far, far away to a place where you’ll never have to see that celebrity ever again.” Indeed, I would not be sad if Billy Crystal’s forehead rendered itself suspiciously void from my subconscious.

Say it ain’t so! TLC member T-Boz, one of the ladies who just a few years ago sang about wanting “No Scrubs,” filed for bankruptcy today. T-Boz — real name Tionne Watkins — owes more than $768,000 to creditors, most of which is related to her $1.2 million home. Ms. Boz does have money coming in – she makes around $11,700 a month in income and spends around $8,800 — but she hasn’t been able to make any headway on her nearly million dollars of debt.

Celebs! They’re just as sized obsessed as us! But they’ve got a team of stylists, editors and handlers to make them feel good. And they’ve got a media industry complicit in helping them combat body and size issues. On “The Today Show” earlier this week, More magazine editor Lesley Jane Seymour revealed the sad truth about how the celeb style machine really works. “When we go to shoots it’s all about the ego,” Seymour says. “If a celebrity says she’s a size 8 and we know she’s not, we cut the sizes out because we know she won’t put it on if it says it’s a 10.” So that’s how they do it!
But vanity sizing, and size-related tips and tricks aren’t just for celebs. Keep reading »

Celebrities change their hair as often as they change their outfits, thanks to the beauty of extensions and on-call hair stylists. And despite knowing better, regular women attempt to keep up with the ADD tresses of famous ladies, while factoring in budgets and physical hair capabilities. But even with their limitations, women all over will still undergo hair transformations 104 times over in a lifetime! Between highlights, bangs, cuts, coloring, and styling, those little trips to the salon turn into a lifetime of hair changes, about three different colors, and at least two hair updates a year. The reasons are numerous: boredom, breakups, trends, and milestones, to name just a few, but media attention regarding the slight changes in a celebrity’s hair undoubtedly affects our decisions too. Just look at how many people set off for a visit to their stylist, a picture of “Rachel Green” in hand, after Jennifer Aniston debuted her shaggy ‘do, and then followed the many stages of Rachel styles. Personally, I’m in a totally different category. I’ve found my go-to hair ‘do and stick with it, only visiting the salon when my hair needs a trim or split ends are driving me crazy, so I can’t imagine I’ll hit the 104 number in my lifetime. Will you? [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
