Someone Is The Lucky New Owner Of The Pink Star Diamond (And It’s Not Us)

I’ll never forget when Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck got engaged — that gorgeous ring slayed me. When their relationship came to an end, I mourned it, if only for the fact that she wouldn’t be wearing that beautiful 6.1-carat pink diamond anymore.

Quickies: Diamond-Covered Panties Scraped A Victoria’s Secret Model’s Vagina

Being a Victoria’s Secret model is tough, y’all. Just listen to this sob story from Selita Ebanks, who strut down a runway wearing panties made from $4.5 million worth of diamonds, rubies, emeralds and yellow sapphires in 2007. “It hurt.

Diamonds Aren’t A Girl’s Best Friend

Who am I to argue with the Madison Avenue suits who coined the phrase “diamonds are a girl’s best friend”?
