Quickies: “Botox Mom” Says She Was Lying & Rashida Jones In Lingerie For “GQ”

  • Kerry Campbell, the mother who said she gave her her eight-year-old daughter Botox so she could compete in beauty pageants, now claims she made everything up. In fact, she says her name isn’t even Kerry Campbell! A woman named Sheena Upton claims she is an actress who was offered $200 by The Sun, a tawdry British tabloid, to “play the role of Kerry Campbell” for an article. Upton/Campbell’s daughter was removed from her home by Child Protective Services, then returned after the girl was examined by doctors. Media outlets who interviewed Upton/Campbell, like “Good Morning America” and “Inside Edition,” are now scrambling to figure out her true identity (and the rest of the truth!). [TMZ]
  • Victoria Beckham is reportedly booked to deliver her daughter via C-section in Los Angeles on July 4th. Is Victoria too Posh to push? (Get it? Ha ha.) Also noteworthy: Victoria and David Beckham have denied reports that they are naming their new daughter “Atlanta.” [Daily Mail UK]
  • Every issue of Playboy, dating back for the past 60 years, is now available on the iPad’s new iPlayboy app. In other words, it just got 700 percent more likely that you’re going to catch someone looking at porn when you don’t want to. [Mediabistro]

Style Stealer: Get On The Fringe Like Rashida Jones

Last week, Rashida Jones’ rocked one of my favorite looks at the Coach party benefitting the Children’s Defense Fund and I vowed to recreate it using wallet-friendly pieces. But if you do have some extra cash, consider dropping it on Rashida’s necklace — while searching for something comparable, I came across the one she’s actually wearing and, I gotta say, it’s gorgeous. Or, you know, don’t, and feel good that you got a similar-ish necklace for a tenth of the price! Keep reading »

Aaron Sorkin Responds To Critiques Of Misogyny In “The Social Network”

“The West Wing” creator Aaron Sorkin is just like you—when he is pissed off about a blog post, he takes to the comments section! Sorkin, who wrote “The Social Network,” left a long comment on a blog post written by TV writer Ken Levine, who reviewed the movie. Another commenter, calling themselves Tarazza, posted a comment which said she loved the Facebook movie except for “the lack of a decent portrayal of women.” With the exception of Rashida Jones‘ character, Tarazza wrote, the women in the movie “were basically sex objects/stupid groupies,” adding “kinda makes me think that Aaron Sorkin (though I love his writing) failed the women in this script. Kind of a shame considering he’s written great women characters like C.J. Gregg!” (The female communications director on “The West Wing.”)

Sorkin then took to Ken Levine’s blog himself. Keep reading »

Quotable: Rashida Jones Doesn’t Think Men Have Advanced Since The Industrial Revolution

“I have a theory. I feel like women have come so far because of the sexual revolution, women’s lib, the feminist movement — we can work, we can nurture, we can be equal partners. Meanwhile, men haven’t really gone anywhere since the Industrial Revolution. Guys in my generation don’t have manners, really; they’re not gentlemen. It’s sad. The only thing they can do to feel powerful is to screw a bunch of people.”

Are You A Fan Of Anklets?

While flipping through the April issue of Elle, we learned that anklets and anklet heels are big right now. Lanvin (above left), Stuart Weitzman, and even Nine West incorporated anklets into shoes this spring, and dainty anklets got some attention in the magazine, too. The last time we considered wearing an anklet was probably back in the early ’90s. For the most part, they just look a little too tacky for our tastes, but even one of our favorite actresses, Rashida Jones (above right), sports one on a regular basis! Should we stop hating and embrace the anklet? Keep reading »
