Who Is Chely Wright, Anyway?

When People revealed the “big” star coming out of the closet on May 7 would be country star Chely Wright, I was, like, who?! If we’re not talking the Dixie Chicks, Shania Twain, or Taylor Swift, I don’t know crap about country. But apparently, Wright, 39, is huge in the country music scene and it’s… More »


Who IS Alexis Neiers, Anyway?

Reality TV is getting a new potential sociopath we’ll love to hate: Alexis Neiers, star of the E! show “Pretty Wild,” airing on Sunday, March 14. “Pretty Wild” will star 18-year-old Neiers, her sister Gabby, 15, their friend, Tess Taylor, 19, and the mama bear of the Neiers clan, former model Andrea Arlington. But what… More »


Who IS Chris Pine, Anyway?

Oh, Chris Pine. Simcha and I are so sorry for doubting you. We didn’t think you had the brawny hotness to play Captain Kirk. We thought you were too pretty to battle the Romulans and woo the ladies with your rough, raw male charisma. But we were wrong. Oh. So. Wrong. Pine captures the essence… More »


Who IS Ray J, Anyway?

Singer/music producer/actor Ray J, Brandy Norwood’s brother, is the latest D-lister to look for love on VH1 on “For the Love of Ray J.” But not much is known about this guy who is desperate for musical success and enjoys partying and loving, other than that Kim Kardashian sex tape business… … More »


Who Is Fatima Bhutto, Anyway?

George Clooney has always been a bit of a ladies man. The self-proclaimed eternal bachelor — who has vowed to never, ever, ever marry — has dated a slew of Hollywood starlets and pretty, young unknowns. Renee Zellweger, Lisa Snowdon, Krista Allen, and, most recently, Sarah Larson, have all spent quality time with the actor,… More »


Who IS Casey Johnson, Anyway?

Socialite Casey Johnson and her crew of friends have been known for starting public scandals and feuds. Recently, Casey’s ex-girlfriend, Courtenay Semel, viciously beat her and set fire to her hair. As the heir to the Johnson & Johnson fortune and daughter of New York Jets owner Robert Wood “Woody” Johnson, Casey has led a… More »


Who IS Olivia Palermo, Anyway?

By now you’ve probably watched an episode of “The City” or have spent at least 10 seconds wondering why such do-nothing people get their own TV shows. One of those do-nothings is Olivia Palermo, Whitney Port’s “co-worker” at Diane von Furstenberg and her fellow “City” castmate. She’s also who I so lovingly refer to as… More »


Who IS Rose Byrne, Anyway?

FX’s popular suspenseful drama “Damages” begins its second season tonight and we’ve heard tons of great things about the show.

Glenn Close, who we… More »


Who IS Jemima Khan, Anyway?

Guy Ritchie hasn’t been divorced from Madonna for a month, yet he seems to have found someone new. Ritchie attended a London dinner party with Jemima Khan earlier this month, according to People.com. Unless you follow the U.K. tabloids, you probably don’t know much about this millionaire heiress. … More »


Who IS James Franco, Anyway?

He’s sexy enough to play James Dean, funny enough to host “Saturday Night Live,” bad enough to play a classic comic book villain, sophisticated enough to be the face of Gucci pour Homme, and brave enough to go gay — twice. James Franco is more than just a pretty face, he’s the kind of actor… More »


Who IS Kristen Stewart, Anyway?

Poor Kristen Stewart. The actress who plays Bella in “Twilight” (Did you see it yet?!) has to deal with all of the rabid, screaming fans, but chances are most of the adoration is directed at her male co-star, Robert Pattinson. The thing is, though I haven’t seen the film just yet, given Kristen’s other work,… More »


Who Is Olga Kurylenko, Anyway?

Who is this new Bond Girl, Olga Kurylenko? Well, she can tell you herself! For a model with English as her second language, the smarty-pants knows many polysyllabic words. In interviews, Olga seems like a cool chick who isn’t afraid to break up the action movie boys club! So we did a little spying ourselves… More »


Who Is Betty Boop, Anyway?

Betty Boop has strutted across the screen for over 75 years. With a skimpy dress and a squeaky voice, she charmed her way into some of the most popular cartoons and pants of her time. Now, the beloved cartoon cutie is coming to Broadway! But what do we really know about this broad, anyway? We… More »


Who Is Gerard Butler, Anyway?

Actor Gerard Butler, the actor best known for his role in “300”, has made headlines the past few months for all the business he’s being doing in his boudoir. His bedroom has seen more action than even his movie sets! And this week, he was seen at a “meeting” cozying up to Jennifer Aniston, who… More »


Who Is Anna Paquin, Anyway?

Anna Paquin has been steaming up the small screen with her role as Sookie Stackhouse on HBO’s “True Blood”. But we realized we know very little about this actress, except that she starred opposite Holly Hunter in “The Piano” at age nine and took on the role of Rogue in the “X-Men” franchise as a… More »


Who Is Elizabeth Banks, Anyway?

With several movies out in the past year, and a few about the hit the big screen in time for the holiday rush, Elizabeth Banks is finally getting the attention she deserves. Over the years she’s had a bunch of smaller roles in movies such as “Spiderman”, “Catch Me If You Can”, and “The 40-Year-Old… More »


Who Is Daniel Craig, Anyway?

Before Daniel Craig came along, I could honestly give two craps about James Bond and his stupid 007. Sean Connery thinks that it’s okay to slap a woman, Pierce Brosnan seems kind of smarmy to me, and I have no clue who Roger Moore or Timothy Dalton is. But then I heard rumors of a… More »


Who Is Brooke Burke, Anyway?

Brooke Burke is tearing it up on “Dancing with the Stars” every week, and we realized we haven’t thought much about her since she hosted that spring break-like travel show on E! Here’s a little background so you can speak intelligently about the brunette while discussing her Quickstep performance with your coworkers.

LOVES: Before… More »


Who IS January Jones, Anyway?

“Mad Men” is my favorite smart show on television (“America’s Next Top Model” is my favorite stupid show), partially because my loins desire the raw magnetism of Don Draper, but also because I absolutely love the compelling story lines driven by the show’s main actresses. Betty Draper’s character is of particular interest to me and… More »


Who IS Rachel Zoe, Anyway?

The Frisky definitely has a love/hate obsession with Rachel Zoe — we love her because she’s such a ridiculous character that she’s impossible not to watch, but we hate her because she’s grossly skinny and shallow. But I realized that perhaps many of you didn’t know who SHE is and why she has her own… More »
