Mariah Carey always has a lot going on in her fabulous diva life. She’s working on the musical based on her movie “Glitter” coming out. She’s constantly fighting off pregnancy rumors, and now Mimi just got finished working on a new album. I don’t know how she does it all and still keeps that banging bod! Mariah is releasing a new ballads CD, a collection of songs she’s already released — yes, another “Greatest Hits”-esque offering. I’m kind of rolling my eyes too. The CD includes her classic, “Hero,” which Mimi re-recorded and shot a whole new video for. While I usually think everything Mariah does is amazing, this particular video is dreadfully boring. It’s nothing but shots of the city skyline, her dog Jack, and her recording in the studio. Mimi, darling, I know you have enough money to create a bigger and better video. You don’t do anything half-assed, so why start now? Secondly, if you watch the original “Hero” video, shot in 1993 (after the jump) and this “Hero,” 15 years later (see above), Mariah has had so much work done. I’m not sure why — she’s always been gorgeous. Check out the original video after the jump, and the re-done version above. Keep reading »
The holiday season is filled with so many awkward family moments. Like, “Oh, pajamas. They’re, um… pink!” Or, “It’s a good thing Grandpa switched his prostate meds.” It can be scary stuff people, but I didn’t want to freak you out before you got cornered by a week’s worth of bonding time. Now that we’ve all officially survived the triumvirate of American high holy days, we can finally breathe a sigh of relief and laugh at this vintage mother/daughter moment. It left me with a not so fresh feeling — my lunch making its way back up. Guaranteed, nobody’s vagina stinks as much as this conversation.
If you’re a 20- to 35-year-old woman without any children I caution you against dating a man with kids. I did this once and, let me tell you, I learned my lesson. I dated The Cop off-and-on for about six years and I have to admit that love kept me from realizing just how big a problem his children were in our relationship. Recently, he and I made plans to have a friendly, totally platonic drink to celebrate my promotion. He canceled the day of because his youngest daughter had hit her head and he’d spent the previous night in the emergency room. I totally understood why he had to cancel, but the situation also reminded me why he and I could never work and why I will never date a man with children again. Keep reading »
Movie studios know we will eat up pure sap around Valentine’s Day. As cheesy as it’s probably going to be, I can’t wait for “He’s Just Not That Into You,” which comes out a month from tomorrow. I laughed out loud watching this new trailer, mostly because there are some valid points. Like Drew Barrymore’s character says, “I had this guy leave me a voicemail at work, so I called him at home. And then he emailed to my BlackBerry, and so I texted to his cell. And now you just have to go around checking all these different portals just to be rejected by seven different technologies. It’s exhausting!” Keep reading »
There are so many great movies out in theaters now: “Slumdog Millionaire,” “Revolutionary Road,” “Marley & Me”… But I’m a broke ass ho who can’t afford to pay $12 a ticket, but, thanks to the TV, I saw this lil’ gem, “Bed Head,” during a film festival and it’s up on YouTube for free. Yay, for the interweb! Now, I’m not sure why the lady star is wearing a tube dress and carrying a clutch mid-day, but love is all about the suspension of disbelief.
A lot of infomercials market products that are totally ridiculous — for example, the Snuggie — but this one is actually something that has Catherine and I saying, “Why didn’t we think of that?” Strap Perfect helps hide pesky exposed bra straps! With something that basically amounts to a flat, round, plastic paperclip! [StrapPerfect.com] Keep reading »
