Banana yellow and peachy orange is a difficult combo for most everyone. But not for Solange, because she is some kind of superhuman style heroine, capable of pulling off even the most bright and garish color combos. Somehow she makes this otherwise untenable combination look chic and completely current. The very definition of well played. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

Today’s Lady News: Sexist “Letterman” Comedy Booker Removed From Job

  • The “Late Show With David Letterman” comic booker who made a sexist comment about female comedians in the New York Times this weekend has been removed from his job. Eddie Brill, who booked comics for the past 11 years and only booked one female comic on the show during all of 2011, told the newspaper he didn’t feel most female comics were “authentic.” He was reportedly removed from his post for speaking to the press without authorization, however — not for the content of his comments.

Today’s Lady News: Letterman’s Comedy Booker Makes Dig At Female Comics

  • “The Late Show with David Letterman”‘s comedy booker, Eddie Brill, was profiled in The New York Times this weekend, and was asked about how only one woman (Karen Rontowski) was booked on the show during all of 2011. “There are a lot less female comics who are authentic,” he said. “I see a lot of female comics who, to please an audience, will act like men.” Now that he’s being criticized for his sexist attitude and commentary, Eddie Brill is accusing the reporter, Jason Zimon, of having it out for him. The reporter just says he was accurately quoting what the “Letterman” booker said … and, well, the fact that he only booked one woman on his show all year kind of speaks for itself, doesn’t it?  [New York Times, Mediaite, Mirth Mag] Keep reading »

Ryan Gosling Essentially Tells Dave Letterman That I Am Pretty

Last night, Ryan Gosling was on “Late Night with David Letterman,” and he had nothing but compliments for New York women. “Some of the prettiest women I have ever seen in my life live here,” he told Dave. “Also because it’s so hot they appear to you like some kind of mirage and they are all screaming into their cell phones.” Which brings me to STORY TIME. A couple weeks ago, Simcha — y’all remember Simcha, right? — texted me the following: “Your man is at Whole Foods!” Naturally, I knew she meant The Gos. I happened to be about, oh, 12 blocks away from the Whole Foods in question and considering that I have been frothing at the mouth for a Gosling sighting, I wasn’t about to let this opportunity slide. “Follow him,” I texted back. “I am on my way.” And I took off running. Well, running, and then walking fast because my side kept hurting, all while Simcha sent me text updates on Ryan’s journey through the grocery store. “He’s buying fruit!” “Now he’s in the fancy cheese section.” Keep reading »
