Fashion Slideshow: Multi-Finger Rings

When I was a child, two-finger, three-finger and four-finger rings were the height of fashion. What can I say? I grew up in the Bronx when hip-hop was definitely making its mark on fashion. My friends and I would make rings out of dollar bills and tape them together to create multi-finger rings. Now that…

The Best Mean Girls In TV And Film

We have a love/hate relationship with Mean Girls. In reality, we know from firsthand experience that Mean Girls can ruin a teen’s life. But when it comes to TV and film, we find Mean Girls totally entertaining and have been known to root for them. Usually, the Mean Girl in a show or movie i…

The Hills Finally Gets Some Action In Vegas, Plus Audrina & LC Cry It Out

Thank you MTV for finally pulling together two episodes where SOMETHING actually happened on this dang show, and two episodes in a row nonetheless! Let’s start with my favorite quote by our token traitor, Stephanie Pratt. “You broke up with a guy who has a private jet?” Stephanie quips to Lauren. Classic, but…

Get Ready For Rachel Zoe And Co.!

I know we’ve said this before, but The Rachel Zoe Project, which premieres tonight at 11 p.m. on Bravo, looks like it’s going to be better than Project Runway and The Hills combined. Please don’t let us down, Bravo. (Doesn’t Rachel’s hubby look über-young? Amelia says he reminds her of Brent Bolthouse.)…

Star Couplings: Lynne Spears Tells All About Britney

Oh dear. Some info from Lynne Spears’ tell all has been leaked to the press and rumor has it she reveals that Britney Spears was drinking by age 13, lost her virginity at 14, then started taking drugs at 15. This should really help mend their relationship, don’t you think? [The Sun U.K.]

“The Hills” Have Minimal Thrills

Every week I wonder why it is that I’m still watching and using coveted DVR space for The Hills. I’m sorry, maybe these girls are more interesting in real life, but NOTHING happens on this show. Last night I watched 22 minutes of Lauren deciding that she and Doug should just be friends.

Shannen Doherty: Straight To The Top Of The C-List

In her 90210 rise to stardom, Shannen Doherty had it all — fame, fortune, and the most glamorous bitch face on television. Over a decade later, we’re genuinely surprised Shannen isn’t still in the public eye or happily hitched to some billionaire with a pompadour. But after being a brat and leaving the show that…

“The Hills” Reveals Lo’s Wicked Side & Allows Spencer To Make Another Stupid Analogy

Lo Bosworth has managed to go from funny, affable dumb-but-in-a-cute-way best friend to totally bitchy and evil in a matter of episodes. Lo reminds me of the girls in high school who, even while they’re chatting with you, were totally judging your outfit and your hair and what you were eating. On last…

Romance On TV: “The Hills” Is Back And More Scripted Than Ever

By now, it’s pretty much accepted that The Hills is, to a certain degree, scripted. According to a recent article in Entertainment Weekly, parts of scenes are re-shot (for example, if the girls enter a nightclub and a crowd of people get in the way of the camera, the producers will have the…

Project Runway: Why Don’t We Hate Tim Gunn Yet?

Every reality show has a breakout star — Lo or Whitney on The Hills, Nicole Richie on The Simple Life, etc. — but usually that star has a fall from grace, once everyone has tired of his or her eccentricities. Just look at Christian Siriano — even we’re sick of saying “fierce” all…

Get A Degree In Reality TV

It’s not uncommon for aspiring actors to audition for reality TV shows, hoping a spot on Big Brother or The Real World will get them noticed by a casting director and catapult their career into, well, reality. But now there are people who don’t really aspire to be actors who play roles, they just want…

Quote Of The Day: Heidi Montag Is Just Like Jesus Christ

“I have been the most religious person since I was 2 years old. I always felt this crazy connection to God…. God knows the truth in all of [the Lauren Conrad sex tape rumors], and at the end of the day, that is the only thing that matters. Jesus was persecuted, and I’m going to…
