Evening Quickies: Prince William & Kate Middleton Gifted With A “Vagina Nut”

  • Prince William and Kate Middleton received a coco de mer — AKA a “vagina nut,” so named for its resemblance to a woman’s genitals — by the Seychelles foreign minister during their honeymoon on the island. The coco de mer is a type of coconut which only grows on islands there. I guess that’s better than a blender? [News.com.au via The Gloss]
  • Kate Hudson explains why she named her newborn son “Bingham.” Good, because many of us were wondering about that. [Just Jared]
  • “Sex and the City”‘s Cynthia Nixon is finally going to marry her girlfriend now that gay marriage is legal in New York State. Cute! Do we think SJP will be a bridesmaid? [Newsweek]

Kate Middleton Is “Thinspiration” On Pro-Anorexia Websites

kate middleton photo

Palace PR disaster: Kate Middleton is the new “thinspiration” icon held up by pro-anorexia and pro-bulimia bloggers. Kate has always been slender and athletic, but she dropped a noticeable amount of weight before her wedding. That makes me sad, because I’ve been a royal watcher for years and I’ve always thought she looked pretty just the way she was. Whether Kate’s weight-loss was from exercise, or from nerves over being watched on TV by a billion people, or some combination of the two, we don’t know. But “The Today Show” has found that women suffering from eating disorders are fawning over the Duchess’s new figure. Keep reading »

Can We Stop Pretending Kate Middleton Is A Style Icon?

As Prince William and Kate Middleton have made their tour around Canada and the U.S., one thing everybody’s been over-the-moon obsessed with is what Kate’s wearing. I, for one, just don’t care. It’s not that I don’t think Kate’s a gorgeous girl with Pantene model hair — she’s clearly stunning and blah blah blah, the picture of English Rose beauty. But really, there is nothing particularly noteworthy about the clothes that she throws on. Keep reading »

Cowboy William And His Cowgirl Kate

Now, I’m not exactly sure what is happening in this photo of Prince William and Kate Middleton as they attended a rodeo yesterday in Canada. But I’m guessing, considering the steer’s bottom and their facial expressions, that it doesn’t smell so good. Also, these two look like naturals in cowboy hats. Kind of.

Dragon Boat Racing Is Having A Moment

A week and a half ago, I had never heard of dragon boat racing. But then, for a group date, “Bachelorette” Ashley Hebert had the dudes vying for her love head out into Hong Kong, assemble a team, and join her on the beach for a dragon boat race. I cheered as Mickey and Ames paddled like pros, and laughed as Ben and Constantine remarked that they were being “smoked like salmon, bro.”

Now, just a week later, I’ve had my second exposure to dragon boating, this time via Prince William and Kate Middleton. Keep reading »

Quickies: Justin Timberlake Hired By MySpace & Kate And Wills Are On Our Side Of The Pond!

  • Justin Timberlake has been hired by MySpace as … a publicity stunt, it would seem? [Celebitchy]
  • A friend of Jonathan Rhys Meyers denies he tried to commit suicide this week by overdosing on pills. Instead, the pal says the alcoholic actor simply relapsed. [PopEater]

  • Vinny was photographed leaving the “Jersey Shore” house with a packed bag. He reportedly left to spend the night at a hotel. I’m guessing drama with either The Situation or Snooki is to blame for this. [Celebuzz]

An Open Letter To Kate Middleton’s Hair

Dear Kate Middleton’s Hair,

I know it’s kind of awkward to write you a letter, because, well, you’re hair and I’m not even sure that you know how to read, but I really need to talk to you. I would have called, but I don’t know the number for your direct line.

Every time I see you, KMH, you look good. Not just good, but breathtakingly good. You are thick and lustrous and shiny and styled into artfully cascading curls. If there was a contest for Best Hair In The World, you would win it every day. Maybe the hair of Blake Lively or Beyonce or Zac Efron would challenge you every once in a while and the World Hair Judges would pretend to deliberate. But ultimately every other head of hair in the world is the Justin Guarini to your Kelly Clarkson–there’s just no contest. So here’s my question: how do you look that good all of the time?

Is This Princess Diana And Kate Middleton “Newsweek” Cover Tasteless?

The late Princess Diana and the very-much-alive Kate Middleton strut side-by-side on the latest cover of Newsweek. It’s shocking, yes, but it also strikes me as tasteless to play around with the image of a dead person who left behind two children. This Photoshopped cover image appears on a Newsweek double-issue in which editor-in-chief Tina Brown, who published a book about Diana in 2007, opines on what Diana would have been like had she lived to her 50th birthday. (She would have owned an iPhone, got Botox, worn J.Crew, and moved to New York City, Brown imagines.) That is a legitimate enough topic to explore, of course. But Photoshopping Middleton next to her husband’s dead mother in order to sell magazines feels unseemly to me.

Today In Royal News: Nicknaming And Farting!

Since the royal couple have announced their engagement, we have been inundated with news of their every breath and kept abreast of their general goings on. There’s so much royal news that it’s difficult to take it all in. Usually I glaze over it. Kate styles herself? Pippa has a nice bum? I can get veneers with Willy and Kate’s face? Who cares. Today, however, I came across two truly noteworthy royal news items. Check them out after the jump. Keep reading »
