NeNe Leakes shouted “I’m the director” all over Buckhead as she prepared “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” for the alter-ego photo shoot by photographer Derek Banks. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. The episode opened with the social director of the crew (NeNe) inviting Kandi and Sheree for Minx Nails manicures. They really over-shared about their pubic hair while getting primped. Kandi got rid of hers with electrolysis. And Sheree is completely bald, and I don’t know why. Brazilians? Alopecia? Who knows.

Of course I thought Johnny Depp was dreamy in “21 Jump Street.” But my childhood crush didn’t turn truly psycho until I saw “Edward Scissorhands.” How did I express my obsession with Johnny? In a totally sane way. I tried to become him. One afternoon when I was home alone, I stole my mom’s manicure kit and taped the different implements to my hands to see what it would feel like to have real scissorhands. Crazy crush behavior or early indicator that I might have goth tendencies in my future? Either way … mortifying.
Inevitably, childhood celeb crushes are only good for one thing: They make you do very embarrassing things. Take, for example, this young lady, Melissa Bell, who may end up in therapy as an adult after she discovers that it might not have been the best idea to read her crush story, “Ashton Kutcher Fan Fiction: The Middle School Dance,” aloud to her school. Poor girl. [BuzzFeed]
Just to make sure that Melissa and I are not alone in our shame, I asked the other ladies at The Frisky to share their most humiliating celebrity crush moments. Some stories you won’t want to miss after the jump. Keep reading »
Remember when we called attention to the fact that AgencySpy was very against the idea of 17-year-old rock/model spawn Georgia Jagger and her topless Hudson Jeans campaign? (Ah, like it was yesterday.) Now there’s a very, well, “erotic” might be the best way of putting it, video making the rounds that is extremely humorous if you love to make fun of kooky fashion ads and, well, let’s just say it’s controversial in other ways too. Check it out and let’s discuss immediately. Keep reading »
Even though last season of “The City” wasn’t so great, I’m still rooting for Whitney Port. I hoped that season two would be a little juicier. But now that MTV has released this extended trailer, I dunno. Here’s what’s happening this season: Whitney says goodbye to Diane von Furstenberg to design her own clothing line. Olivia goes to work at Elle and pisses all her coworkers off. Kelly Cutrone gets in some good one-liners. Whitney beefs with her glass-half-empty new coworker at People’s Revolution. Jay is gone and has been replaced by some bozo in a suit and tie named Freddy. He and Whitney obviously have zero chemistry and coincidentally the New York Post is reporting today that their relationship is already dunzo. So, things aren’t looking so hot. But I’ll probably end up watching anyway because that is how strong “reality” television’s hold is on me. Keep reading »
French bulldogs are even cuter upside down.
Yes, we showed you a mini clip yesterday, but today MTV has released a full-fledged two minute (two minute!) preview of season 6 of “The Hills,” where Lauren Conrad is dunzo and mean girl Kristin Cavallari steps in to keep the drama going. What’s this I see? Kristen playing tonsil hockey with Justin Bobby, and ignoring the fact that his facial hair is out of control? Heidi’s pushing for a baby and thinks women expire at 22? Now Kristin’s after Brody, while simultaneously saying that their sex life was vanilla? Holly’s going to rehab? Audrina’s feuding with everyone? Spencer’s cowboy hat is ridiculous? Geez, this season looks like it’s going to be amazing. I know the sad truth of this show is that you get absolutely all the juicy moments in the previews and the episodes don’t actually add much, but you best bet that I’ll be watching the season premiere on September 29th.

Last night I finally got around to watching “Youth Knows No Pain,” a new HBO documentary which aired on Monday night. The film is directed by Mitch McCabe, the daughter of a plastic surgeon, who has been obsessed with anti-aging treatments and products since she was little. Through interviews with various cosmetic surgery and beauty addicts, she explores our country’s obsession with never growing old. She puts her own weaknesses bravely on display and gets some seriously juicy and fascinating perspectives out of her incredible cast of “characters.” These include “lifecasters” Julia Allison and Mary Rambin, who are fond of fillers and Botox and come off as bratty and vapid; Allure Editor-In-Chief Linda Wells, who admits that her magazine pushes beauty products that don’t necessarily work but still make people “feel good”; Norman Deesing, who has spent more than 50K trying to look like Jack Nicholson; Erica Rose, a former contestant on “The Bachelor,” who is also the daughter of a plastic surgeon; and Sherry McCabe, featured in the clip above, who used to be obese. After she got gastric bypass and dropped a ton of pounds, Sherry got her whole face, tummy, and boobs done in an effort to look young and hot. She is pure sad amazingness. Check out the clip above and watch the full documentary, which is both eye-opening and entertaining, on HBO. [HBO: Youth Knows No Pain] Keep reading »
