Words Of Wisdom



"I think it deplorable when men don't shave. I can't stand it. I don't think men should come downstairs looking unshaven and ghastly with their tummies hanging out of their dressing gowns. Horrible!"

That Lil Black Dress


This restored some of my faith in humanity:
"A school in eastern India built with money raised in the auction of Audrey Hepburn's iconic black dress was inaugurated Wednesday by French author and philanthropist Dominique Lapierre. Some 200 children will be able to attend the school in Bishnupur, a village nearly 30 miles south of Calcutta, the capital of the West Bengal state."


Remember that black lil number that Ms. Hepburn, AKA: Holly Golightly, wore as she stepped out of a taxi cab to window shop outside of Tiffany's, well it was bought for $807,000 and the proceeds are going towards schools.... in India no less.... this makes my heart all warm and tingly. I've always been a huge advocate for education, specifically in poverty striken nations. Fourteen more schools are going to be built with the money. Oh Audrey, you would be so pleased!

George Micheal wants you to "Just Say No"




“I was already an established artist when I started smoking. I’m not sure whether I would have become a successful artist had I started smoking as a teenager because pot makes you self-contented and lazy. You are easily satisfied when you are high - which is not good at the beginning of a career. But I’m sure smoking pot is the only thing - as stupid as it is - that makes it possible for me to continue my work.”


George, I think the wacky tabacky is the least of your problems. You may want to re-think you're habits of soliciting sex in public bathrooms and drunk driving before you address relations with mary jane.

Hot or Not


Looks like Posh decided to go blonde. Maybe she did it since she'll be moving to California and she wants to fit in? Do you think this new look is HOT or NOT?

Diane says: NOT---okay so it doesn't look bad on her or anything...but I think she just looks better as a brunette.

Reality TV wants YOU!

During my perusal of MSNBC this A.M., which is where I like to stay updated on the goings on of the world, I ran across this:

How can I audition for reality shows?

Now, I personally would not audition for any reality show.... but that does not stop me from watching them..... my motto is the trashier the better. No need to judge me, at least I admit I watch them. So this article goes on to list 40 different links to a variety of reality television shows that you, the American (or Non-American) public can audtition for; as well as tips on what and what not to do (how helpful, but as a self proclaimed expert I'm pretty sure the crazier and attention starved you are, THE BETTER). And with that said, please feel free to look them over yourselves.... something just might jump out at you, and then you too can become part of my mindless entertainment regiment.

Among the links there is of course the run of the mill "American Idol" (which I must add is in desperate need of some talent), "The Bachelor," "Big Brother," yadda yadda yadda. But don't you worry there's still need of some drama queens for the "Bad Girls Club" (a personal favorite of mine) as well as the MTV crop. If you feel the need to prove your self there is a new show some producers are trying out called "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader." I'm personally looking forward to "Crowned: The Mother of all Pageants" where mothers and daughters team up to compete in beauty pageants........ can you smell the tag team cat fights? Cause I can.

Because I'm from Texas



So yes, I'm from Texas. And YES, I actually like country music..... So with that said, this was just too good to pass up. I don't know if the rest of you are familiar with the country music duo Montgomery Gentry, if you are... well that makes my job easier. If you aren't..... well, I think you'll still get something out of this.


The big story is that Troy Lee Gentry, "has been sentenced to three months of probation and a $15,000 fine for killing a captive black bear. He also must give up hunting in Minnesota for five years. "


Ok, let me give you the low down here. Back in 2004 this guy goes on an 'orchestrated hunt,' which really means it was staged and there was no real hunting of any kind.... in fact I wouldn't be surprised if they drugged the poor bear to make it easier since Gentry managed to kill the 600 pound bear with a bow and arrow...... (Can ya'll smell the bullshit too?) He also video taped the whole hunt and LATER edited it to make it look like a 'fair chase'.......


<- Troy Lee 'Jerkface' Gentry
Ok, I know this isn't a TYPICAL celebrity blog entry....... but does this piss anyone else off besides me?

Is it child abuse if................



You ALLOW your child to get a lap dance from such a, how's a polite way to say this, woman of the night? In case you can't see the resemblence, this is Sean "Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, Diddy" Combs twelve year old son Justin. I know..... he looks more or less 6, maybe the puberty kicked in after this little escapade.

Somehow I always thought Diddy's kid would have better taste in women...... Well, you know what they say about assumptions.

Prince Charles Is NOT Lovin' It


Who knew Prince Charles was a such a health nut? Apparently recently he has been meeting with a nutritionist, Nadine Tayara, in an effort to combat diabetes in the mother land. In his effort to support organic farming and a healthier diet, he has slammed the head honcho of fast food: McDonalds.

His exact words: "Have you got anywhere with McDonald's? Have you tried getting it banned? That is the key." Honestly I don't know where he gets off. I'm pretty sure England isn't known for it's health minded entree's...... spotted dick anyone?

Dress Me---Museum Afternoon

When you go to a museum you should be comfortable in what you are wearing (since you are bound to spend most of the afternoon there). But being cozy in your clothing doesn't mean you have to dress sloppy! Check out some of these great looks that you should add to your wardrobe. We bet that if you wear them on your next trip to your local museum or gallery you just might get noticed more than the art there!

Lux Railroad Stripe Jean from Urban Outfitters- This jean has a relaxed fit, as well as a white conductor strip throughout the pants. You can get this unique look for $68.

Lux V Knit Dress from Urban Outfitters- This dress is made of a soft jersey knit and will leave you feeling fashionable and comfortable all at the same time. This dress comes in the following colors: black, navy, and purple. Order yours today for $68.

Refined Canvas Flora Jacket by J. Crew- This jacket will pull any look together. I find museums tend to be a bit chilly from one room to the next...so a nice light jacket is perfect. This one isn't too flashy...however, the button detail is a nice accent. You can get your very own now for $165.


Hannah Driving Moccasins in pink by Isaac Mizrahi for Target- You will most certainly need some comfortable walking shoes for your museum afternoon. But who says that comfort is only found in ugly sneakers? Look adorable in these hot pink moccasins for only $29.99.

True Love Forever?


Rumor has it that Heath Ledger and Michelle Williams have hit a rough patch in their relationship. Supposedly they spent Valentine's Day apart and are not on speaking terms.

Maybe it has something to do with her tragic new haircut...

Arrested


Bobby Brown was arrested on Sunday while at his daughters' cheerleading competition at her high school. Brown was arrested for failure to pay child support fines and failure to appear in court. He spent Sunday night in jail and will remain there until this afternoon when a judge will decide whether or not to charge him with contempt of a child support order. If the charge is criminal, Brown could land in jail, McDermott said.

Geez, isn't this like the zillionth time this man has been arrested? Wouldn't you think that after the first time (or at least after the first FEW times) he would TRY to staighten his life out a bit. Arrested at your kid's school...how embarrassing!

Holly & Hef


Rumor has it that Hugh Hefner is going to marry his longtime girlfriend Holly Madison by the end of the year. An insider told Page Six:

"Hef has decided he will marry Holly, and he wants it for his show, 'The Girls Next Door'. Hef thinks business all the time, and looks for a new hook, although he also does really love Holly. But Hef sees that she is the most dedicated, Kendra is never there, and they both hate each other, and Bridget is hanging on by being very friendly to Holly."

How true all of this is I don't know...I guess we'll have to just wait and see what happens.


*Thanks Leslie for the heads up!*

Shaved...



So it looks like maybe Brit-Brit started a trend. The other week she shaved her hair (or should I say extensions), and ever since then being bald is the talk of Hollywood. For instance, Donald Trump is talking about shaving his head if he losing a bet...and Jack Nicholson and Joel Madden have become one with their BIC and jumped on the bald bandwagon.
