The Cupid Cabbie

Let me preface this for you non-NYC people by saying that most of the taxi drivers I’ve come in contact with are not all that friendly. Especially when I tell them I live in an outer borough. Forget it. I’m blacklisted before my ass even hits the seat. What I wouldn’t give to catch a ride with Ahmed Ibrahim, a NYC cab driver who plays matchmaker for his single passengers. The “Cupid Cabbie” is responsible for 19 couples that have been together for over a year. Hey, I think that’s better than Patti Stanger. If you’re reading, Ahmed, I need a ride.

Warhol’s Candy Darling Gets Her Due


Candy Darling was a part of artist Andy Warhol’s inner circle–a muse and a flamboyant character in Warhol’s Factory scene. She was also a dark and troubled figure, immortalized in the Velvet Underground’s “Walk on the Wildside.” The new documentary, “Beautiful Darling,” chronicles Darling’s humble beginnings as a young boy and her rise to Warhol superstar. We can’t wait to see it. Keep reading »

“The Office”‘s “Seasons Of Love” Tribute To Michael Scott


I haven’t been a loyal watcher of “The Office” in a few seasons, but that didn’t stop me from totally tearing up while watching this tribute to Michael Scott from last night’s episode. My high school choir (I was not a member) sang “Seasons of Love” from “Rent” at my high school graduation and, damn, does that tune tug at the heartstrings (even when the lyrics are ridiculously altered). Next week is Steve Carell’s last episode — will you be watching? Keep reading »

Would You Let Your Boyfriend Do Your Makeup?


Behold, kind of the cutest couple ever! This guy clearly loves his girl so much that he does his lady’s makeup for her one day. So what if he uses blush as eyeshadow? It’s the thought that counts, right? [Stylelist] Keep reading »

Please, No: “Real Housewives” Husband, Simon Van Kempen, Sings “I Am Real”


Is this really happening again? Is another “Real Housewives” star trying to turn their 15 minutes of reality TV fame into a music career? Actually, no. A “Real Housewives”‘ star’s husband is following in the footsteps of Countess LuAnn, Kim Zolciak, and Danielle Staub. Alex McCord‘s hubby, Simon Van Kempen — both from “The Real Housewives of NYC” — has released his first song, “I Am Real.” It is just as Eurotrash as you’d expect from the banana hammock-wearing Aussie. Simon told PopEater that his style is similar to Jarvis Cocker from Pulp, and while I appreciate the reference — love Jarvis — I politely disagree. (Though I do think it establishes him as more of a gay icon than Sonja.) But what do you think? [PopEater] Keep reading »
