Heidi Pratt Wants You To Lose Weight

Want workout and nutritional advice from Heidi Montag? (How very Elizabeth Hasselbeck of her.) Yeah me neither. But apparently Mrs. Pratt doesn’t care what we want—she’s once again unleashing her Playboy-rific bod on the world in a new workout DVD. The plan is to also offer such unheard of and novel nutritional advice like: Avoid all “white” foods, fill up on lean meats, green veggies, apples, berries, blah blah blah. (Oh, and for the record, “Heidi loves steak!”—only if it’s grass-fed, though.) I wonder if she’ll recommend her plastic surgeon along with all this talk of 90 minute five day-a-week workouts?

Crave: “The Secret Life Of Bees” DVD

“The Secret Life of Bees” is one of those movies that will make you cry, laugh and appreciate your friends. Set during the Civil Rights Era, the story focuses on Lily Owens (Dakota Fanning) whose journey to learn about her dead mother takes her to the home of the Boatwright sisters in South Carolina. Lily forms a maternal bond with each of the sisters as they expose her to comfort, grace and spirituality–luxuries she has never been afforded at home. Queen Latifah as August Boatwright is as warm and compassionate as Matron Mama Morton was money-hungry in “Chicago.” The other actors, including Jennifer Hudson, Sophie Okonedo and Tristan Wilds, were also perfectly cast. You will connect to each of the characters and the issues at hand. The DVD release date is February 3, but it’s available for pre-order now. [$19.99, Amazon.com] Keep reading »

    My So-Called Life: We Still Love The Way Jordan Catalano Leans

    One of the greatest gifts I got this holiday was the My So-Called Life complete box set. In case you weren’t part of the show’s demographic during its unjustly short lifespan (one amazing, wonderful season), here’s a synopsis: the show follows 15-year old Angela Chase as she tries to make it through life at her suburban high school, hanging out with her new “rebellious” friends Rayanne (the drunk) and Rickie (the gay), barely able to stand her parents Patty and Graham, and falling head over heels for bad boy (and totally illiterate!) heartthrob Jordan Catalano. So MSCL was hands down my favorite TV show ever and I, like many girls I know, so empathized with Angela’s character — the writers did a stupendous job capturing the teen angst meets boy crazy obsession that makes teen girls so….hard to understand, usually. Anyway, I kind of wondered whether the show would still resonate with me though I’m now older, much less angsty, and a whole lot less boy crazy. For example, would I wisely now see the appeal of Angela’s nerdy neighbor Brian Krakow over the insanely gorgeous, but also rude and dumb-as-rocks Jordan? Um, yeah. No. Brian, while used and abused by Angela still seems totally….deserving of her contempt 14 years later while Jordan’s silent but deadly indifference still is the stuff that drives girls, and apparently women, wild. Not to get all cerebral about a TV show, but does this prove that bad boys still finish first and nice guys will always finish last? [Amazon.com] Keep reading »
