Our culture tends to make women disappear as we age, so it’s exciting to see that the blog Advanced Style has been turned into a documentary and book. To celebrate, some of the sassy old broads featured on the site appeared on “The Today Show” to show off their ageless style tips. First up: Joyce, a gorgeous octogenarian who notes that “a woman can’t always look younger, but she can always look elegant.” So true. Then there’s former dancer Jackie, whose posture puts me to shame. And Ilana, who’s 91 and makes her own faux eyelashes from clippings of her hair. As she’s leaving the stage in a hail of compliments, she tells the hosts, “I’m glad that you enjoy my freedom” (I’m so adopting that phrase). Finally, 100-year-old Ruth Cohen models, with her grandson Ari, who started the blog. But listen “Today Show” ladies, don’t take too long, Ruth’s got a pilates class to get to. [MSNBC]

In this clip from “The Today Show,” Ann Curry discusses favorite books with Bill Clinton and Mindy Kaling, which is, yes, kind of a strange pair. You can tell Mindy is a little freaked out by the set up, and Ann is kind of a stone cold beyotch to Mindy, dissing her while she flirts mercilessly with Bill Clinton. Also, Bill Clinton totally picks all these brown nose-y smart dude books while Mindy picks the fun books you’d actually want to read. Still, it’s really cute when Mindy tells Ann that she wishes she’d been able to get a peek at Bill’s list before she gave her own.

Justin Long Talks Thongs As The Co-Host Of The “Today Show”

,

Yesterday, while Hoda Kotb, was on vacation, Justin Long filled in for her as a co-host of the “Today Show.” “Hoda is probably fairly drunk by now, it’s safe to say,” said Justin.

“She packed her thong,” replied Kathie Lee. “Do you like women in thongs?” Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: “Today” Will Not Be Throwing A Gay Wedding

  • Lesbian and gay couples are urging NBC to open “The Today Show”‘s wedding contest to them, too. The network has said it won’t do so because New York state, where the show is filmed, doesn’t recognize same-sex marriage. Gay rights advocates say that excuse doesn’t hold water because NY actually recognizes marriage licenses from other states, so a ceremony could, in fact, be performed on the show. [TheWrap.com]
  • Louisiana Senator David Vitter said it’s “old news” that his former staffer, Brent Furer, allegedly held a woman at knife point and threatened to kill her. The incident occurred in 2008 and Furer resigned last month after an ABC News report on the incident; Vitter had repeatedly refused to answer questions about why he kept Furer on staff all that time. [ABC News]
  • More crap news from the wage gap trenches: German women expect to earn a lower salary than their male counterparts because men are considered to be the breadwinners. A recent study found German women earn 20 percent less than men, one of the highest gender gaps in the European Union, and researchers theorize they accept the unequal pay as a part of their culture.

Jenna Bush And Bill Clinton Talk Wedding Planning


I wasn’t the biggest fan of “The Today Show” handing Jenna Bush the coveted role of correspondent. But yesterday, she did an interview that was kind of cute … with Bill Clinton. “I’m sure this is a rarity, a Bush interviewing a Clinton,” she said. “They joke that you’re my grandfather’s stepson because he talks about you more than anyone else in the family.” The two talked Haiti and, of course, wedding planning since Chelsea is getting hitched soon. “The only part of the planning I do is pay the bills,” said Bill. “But I’m participating. Chelsea’s been good enough to include me in the decisions they’re making … I admire my prospective son-in-law. I’m happy about that, but that doesn’t mean it will be easy. I just hope I can keep it together when I walk her down the aisle.” Aww, Bill Clinton. Kinda sleazy dude; adorable, proud papa. [MSNBC] Keep reading »

Now I Can Call Myself A “Nude Model”

OK, admittedly the headline is a little misleading. That’s me on the right in a nude-colored dress pretending to be a model for a fashion segment with Stacy London. We taped the segment — all about how to wear pale colors for spring — early this morning to air on “The Today Show” at a later date. It was fun hanging out in the green room watching the celebs get all made up for their appearances. And since I also had my chance in the hair and make-up chair and the producers even sent a car to pick me up (way, way) early and take me home, it was fun to fantasize briefly of a life where that’s just a typical morning. A girl could get used to that kind of treatment! Anyway, stay tuned for an upcoming post about a few fashion tips I picked up while getting styled by Ms. London. Keep reading »
