What’s the big issue these days in German politics? Sex appeal. Vera Lengsfeld, a conservative candidate running for parliament, is generating controversy over a campaign billboard she posted in her voting district. The billboard uses an unauthorized photo of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and shows both middle-aged women sporting very, very revealing tops that expose “Real Housewives”-level cleavage. Across the bottom, the billboard reads, “We have more to offer.” Merkel is shocked by the photos and so are many Germans. But the billboard does seem to have served its purpose. Lengsfeld is getting quite a bit of attention, even if has nothing to do with her politics. Do you think her girls can get a woman elected? Keep reading »
We love it when Jimmy Fallon dresses in drag and pretends to be his fictional wife, “Denise,” in “The Real Housewives of Late Night.” He did a pretty good job on Monday night: He had the Jersey accent down pat, nailed the self-congratulatory speeches, and almost threw a tantrum, which is about as “Real Housewife” as you can get. But where was his cleavage? And why wasn’t he trying to sell us anything or tell us about his charity? Also, when’s the last time we saw a “Real Housewife” cook? With the exception of Bethenny and her Skinny Girl margaritas, of course. Keep reading »
Lisa Wu-Hartwell of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” was kicked out of her $2.9 million home after she and husband Ed Hartwell defaulted on their loan. Attempts to refinance the loan failed, and the couple was forced to sell their home for $1 million less than they bought it for. But don’t feel too bad; the duo has settled into a new house. [TMZ]
Are boys becoming girls? They’re already getting mani/pedis and are competing in glitzy beauty pageants. It seems a new generation of boys is being raised to obsess about their looks like their female counterparts. This video, from season one of TLC’s “Toddlers & Tiaras,” features Heather Hughes, mom of Hayden and Maverick. In the clip Heather expresses a desire to turn her sons into little girls. “These are my girls that I never had, so I’ll just turn them into girls,” she said when asked why she started entering them in pageants.

In mid-August, I always start to get a little wistful about how summer is evaporating before my eyes. But then something happens to remind me of all that there is to look forward to in fall. Over the weekend, it was the September issue of Lucky arriving in my mailbox, full of glorious fall clothes. And then today, the CW released a preview of season three of “Gossip Girl.” Enjoy. Now we have to wait until September 14 to see the whole episode. Keep reading »
The folks at HBO seem to outdo themselves with every “True Blood” episode and last night’s was no different. Basically, it was all about rescuing Sookie and Godric, who didn’t really need any assistance, from the Fellowship of the Sun people, and Maryann continued her domination over Tara and Eggs.

There were some highs and some lows on the season premiere of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” last night. The absolute best part was the neck-rolling, arm-swinging catfight, altercation, ruckus, or whatever you want to call it between Sheree and her party planner, Anthony. You see, Sheree had the not-so unique idea to throw an “independence party” since her ex-husband got her home foreclosed, and she finally has to stand on her own two feet. Basically, she wanted Atlanta’s elite to fawn over her once again and realize that she might have a smaller house, but she’s still “fabulous.” Keep reading »
Holy hilarity! Thursdays this fall just got funnier. “SNL” alum/comic genius Amy Poehler will return to her comedic anchor seat alongside Seth Meyers for “Saturday Night Live Weekend Update Thursdays.” My all-time favorite “SNL” skit took a hit when Tina Fey and Amy left the show, but the Thursday night special that began during the presidential election is back. And hopefully, the Poehler-punch will bring it back to its original level of awesomeness. “Weekend Update Thursdays” starts September 17, before the premieres of “Parks and Recreation” and “30 Rock.” If you squint hard enough, you can pretend that Amy and Tina are both behind the anchor’s desk, together again.

Brave, brave Sheri Shepherd shows us how hilarious a bikini wax can truly be. Not only do you feel her pain, but you feel so wrong for laughing at it. First of all, I’m surprised she was not told in advance, or even worse that she didn’t ask what kind of wax she was getting. It only adds to the tragic situation. I’d say it’s a nice break from the sporadic morning cat fights on “The View.” Cringe, laugh, cry, and enjoy. Keep reading »
Last night’s season finale of “The Rachel Zoe Project” was rather epic. Taylor was a mega bitch, Brad cried, and cried some more, and Rodger, bless his vaguely homosexual heart, bought Rachel a Porsche for their 10 year anniversary. Dylan McKay’s Porsche, to be exact. I don’t know what I love more — that Rachel wanted that specific year of Porsche (thus making her my twin), or that Rodger KNEW and remembered and actually got her that car.
Anyway, last night’s episode also featured a very special message from Zoe’s client Jennifer Garner, who did a pretty spot-on dramatization of what exactly goes on between the stylist, hair stylist, and makeup artist on a big awards nights like the Oscars.
Oh, also, Season 1 of this show ended with Rachel eating exactly zero morsels of nothing. Even when Rodger arrived home with Mexican food for the whole gang, Rachel didn’t take a plate. Not even a tortilla chip with guacamole! Keep reading »
