Let's Stop and Reflect

In case you missed the original statement, according to People Online the couple says, "After three years of marriage, and careful thought and consideration, we have decided to part ways," the statement says. "This is the mutual decision of two people with an enormous amount of respect and admiration for each other. We hope that you respect our privacy during this difficult time."

Well, since it's over... I took a few minutes out today to watch Newlyweds Season 2. I couldn't help but feel a few pangs of sadness as Jessica and her wife Nick talked about celebrating their one-year anniversary in Atlantic City. Sure, Jessica is an idiot when she's asking Nick what Oktoberfest is, sure she's irritating when she's trying to figure out why some sausage is white, but I can't help but think these two were made for each other.

This leaves us with very few couples to love to hate. You can't hate Brangelina since they're both really hot and fighting for world causes. You can't hate Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillipe because they're both so likeable. I'm distraught over the whole thing I need a drink.

And Nick says, "Buh bye, Jessica!"

He can bite my neck anytime

Ever since the Lost Boys, I've had a love for Kiefer Sutherland. He's hot in vampire teeth, he's hot in his Young Guns cowboy hat. Let's all take a moment for him in Young Guns 2 where he comes out shooting and then gets killed. Ah yes, Kiefer, my love for you started many years ago.

Now let's sing a little of the haunting Lost Boys anthem, "Thou Shall Not Fall..." Okay, I'm okay now.

Allegedly, Kiefer was spotted out in Hollywood with a boy"friend." Yep, I said it, BOY friend. "Friend" who is a BOY. How hot is this, though-- Kiefer sported black painted nails and black plastic-framed glasses. Yummy? I'd say so! And who cares if he doesn't like girls anymore, right? Julia Roberts certainly dodged that bullet.

Girly Girl Pick of the Week 11/28

Okay, so we go to paint a wall, we prime it... welcome to your face. Before you go to the trouble of the whole eyeshadow, mascara, lipstick thing you've got to prime what's going on under it. Who cares if you're using MAC's newest glitter eyeliner if you've got an uneven skintone thing going on, right?

I am of firm belief that with foundation, you get what you pay for. If you're going for the $2.99 Wet and Wild base because it's cheaper, just don't do it. Remember in the movie "Death Becomes Her" at the end when Glenn Close and Goldie Hawn's faces are cracking and it's like they've got to Bondo it all back together? So is the super cheapola foundation.

That said, you can still find good foundation in the drugstore, just stay away from the crap.

Loreal makes a great line of drugstore foundations, about $11 to $13 that I've found work very well. Also remember Loreal is a subsidiary of Lancome, so I would much rather pay this much than heading to the Lancome counter and paying three times as much for pretty much the same thing. Also, I only like liquid foundations, as the liquid to powder kind of pancake kinds make me break out. If you use these, be sure to either replace the sponge weekly or wash it really well all of the time because the oil from your face gets trapped in them and makes you break out.

Ideal Balance works well if you've got combination skin. The coverage is pretty good, a little on the sheer side, but in all a fairly good product. From their Web site, Idéal Balance contains a special skin-reading technology that helps deliver the perfect balance. Dual Action Complex regulates oil-prone areas and controls shine while adding hydration and helping to protect the dry, sensitive areas. The SPF 10 is a bonus as well, but you're all already putting sunscreen on your faces anyway, right? Right? Even in the winter?

Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse is a fairly good foundation if you're in a hurry and want pretty minimal coverage. This is like a good Saturday morning going to the grocery store kind of thing. It goes on a little weird, and you have to use your fingers instead of a makeup wedge which sort of freaks me out a little, but it's quick and that's nice. Comes a good colors, and works for most kinds of skin, but I know it didn't make me break out and I will break out easily if the wind shifts.

Neutrogena Skin Clearing Tint is also a nice, sheer foundation but I actually like to use it under my foundation if I feel like I'm having a bad skin day. It has just a little bit of salycylic acid in it (zit cream) that sort of works all day to help with any blemishes. It smells weird though, be aware of it, kind of like medicine.

Revlon Skinlights Diffusing Tint is nice because it gives you that "dewy" look, but I only like it at night because it's a little too shimmery for daytime and just makes you feel sort of sweaty-looking. Very pretty colors, and the more-pink tones are neat for sort of an ethereal look. I would NOT get this for every day, rather if you're going for some effect or maybe just want a lighter, more casual thing going on. This sort of made me break out, so if you have really sensitive skin, I would think twice about it.

So in the winter, I get these weird dry places on my face and I switch to Clinique's Dewy Smooth Age-Defying Makeup which I love and adore. Works on combination skin and gives really great coverage. ALOT of coverage, so if you're into the more sheer look, stick with a tinted moisturizer, or something I've described above. From their Web site, Ultra-moisturizing, Clinique's fresh new take on foundation glides on even the driest skin, for a comfortable, supple feeling that lasts. Plumping skin too, so yesterday's lines seem to disappear. Evens out skin tone. Protects with SPF 15. BE SURE to use a new makeup sponge every week if you're going to use this because it's really thick and makes it really gunky if you don't.

So there you have it! No excuses for flaky, uneven zit faces! Not even as the weather changes!

Why, Matthew? Why?

I have loved Matthew Perry since he first stepped onto Friends. That geeky Chandler Bing warmed the cockles of my bitter heart. Maybe it was the sweater-vests, maybe it was the cynical tone of voice, but oh how Chandler make me want to dye my hair and call myself "Monica."

But apparently Matthew Perry is having a rough post-Friends life in Hollywood. According to Perez Hilton, Perry was seen leaving rehab and heading to an exclusive members-only club and looked like he'd been on quite the bender. Allegedly, after sweet Matthew arrived at the club alone (I'll go with you!) he was spotted popping pills at the bar.

Come on, Matthew! I'll rehabilitate you!

Girly Girl Pick of the Week 11/21

Okay, so I'm obsessed with my face and moisturizing and all that good stuff. But THIS product, used a couple of times a week exfoliates and gives your face a glow. You know when you feel like your skin just feels "blah?" Yeah, I do too... before attributing it to too many martinis (because you can never have too many) give this a whirl and see what your face looks and feels like.

I'm talking about Burt's Bees Citrus Facial Scrub!

This orange-y and clove smelling scrub is great, but really you're going to only want to use it a couple of times a week because if your skin is at all sensitive (like mine, I could breathe wrong and be all red-faced and have a zit or something) it'll tear it up. Wash normally, then grab this yummy scrub. Mix it with water, gently massage it on, and let the all-natural products work their magic. Don't get it near your eyes unless you want wrinkles in ten years! I follow it up with a nice toner and then a bunch of moisturizer and I wake up the next day looking like a young girl of 15. No, better than when I was 15 because with all the dance and plays I did, I had major makeup-ick face.

Alllso, as a bonus (and here I go plugging Clinique again! If my career doesn't work out, I'll be either a Wal-Mart greeter or a Clinique girl) I wake up in the morning and use Clinique's All About Eyes. I could have been up all night with a good Irish stout and a hot man, and I look like I got some shut-eye. Keep it in the fridge... aaahhh... now that feels good.

Would the Real Jason Lewis Please Stand Up?

So Lindsay Blowhan has fallen to a prank by some unknown guy claiming to be Jason Lewis (You know, from Sex and the City? Samantha's hunky young boyfriend Smith Jared from Season 6?) and exchanged text messages with this random guy before she found out he wasn't really the real Jason Lewis.

According to People Magazine, "the unfamous Lewis claimed he was in the cocktail lounge of New York's Soho Grand hotel and learned that Lohan had checked in. He left his name and number for her, and she later responded. The fake Lewis claimed to have exchanged a week's worth of calls and text-messages before trying to set up a face-to-face meeting at a New York club. He claimed the meeting fell through when he showed up and Lohan waved the unknown man away."


Though if Smith Jared were calling me, I'd try to meet up with him too! Groooowwwl! He doesn't need to be with Rosario Dawson; pick me! Pick me!

Jack Osbourne Transformed!

Oh my goodness. So remember how on "The Osbournes" Jack was always freaky and fat and had that horrible hair? Yeah, well notsamuch anymore. Jack has gone through rehab, started working out, and remade his hairdo. While he's definitely no Pierce Brosnan, he's much better looking than he used to be. Still, I feel a little creepy looking at this picture because young Jack, and I mean young, is only 20-years-old. This is Jack posing for a spread in Cosmo, I'll spare you the "before" picture so click on the picture to enlarge Jack.

Girly Girl Pick of the Week 11/14

So, I've been a redhead for a really long time, but now it's more blonde in the front and I got to thinking it's looking sort of dingy. Maybe it's the weather, maybe it's my disposition, either way, I found a product that will brighten blonde highlights and make hair sparkle!!

It's inexpensive! It's at drugstores! It's John Frieda's Spun Gold Shaping and Highlighting Balm. I got some the other day and was able to make my hair wavy and chunky with just a hint of glitter in the blonde. Used sparingly, it really gives roots volume and makes the frizzies smooth. Even in the sprinkling of rain this last weekend, my hair didn't fall flat after I got inside and sort of puffed back up the roots. USE IT SPARINGLY THOUGH because it's a little waxy and will totally gum up your hair and make it look really dirty if you use too much.

How It Works:
- Delivers a perfectly polished finish or a sexy, tousled texture to short or long hair
- Gives blonde hair sure-shape, sexy texture with lift, body and soft separation
- Instantly lights up blonde highlights with a shimmering 24K shine
- Keeps blonde bright and shiny

But it works on hair that's not blonde too... like mine's all stripey red and blonde right now, and it made it look faboo!

Vaughniston to Wed?

Oooooh, the rumors are certainly getting juicy surrounding Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston! The Sun (UK publication) is reporting Vaughn sold his house and has moved to Jen's Malibu pad and proposed! Apparently the proposal came after Jennifer woke up from a dream, crying tears of joy that Vince was "the one."

I don't know, I'm as miffed about his as I am about Brad and Angelina. It's like the corpse of the Pitt/ Aniston marriage isn't even cold, and here they're engrossed in new relationships. Maybe I'm a bit harsh, but I think Jennifer can do much better than Vince "Bloaty McBloats" Vaughn; and I used to really like him back in the Swingers days! He's just so puffy and dark-circley now.

...but I guess if they're happy.

Lindsay Lohan Nearly Engaged?

So, this morning I read that Lindsay Lohan and Jared Leto might be getting engaged!! Well, according to Lindsay's friend who was quoted in Life & Style Weekly who said, "She's crazy about Jared." Meaning Miss Lohan wants to hurry and get married while Leto still likes her because he's been known to go through the ladies nearly as much as Colin Farrell.

Lohan and Leto have been dating off and on since Lohan let go of Wilmer Valderrama and Leto dropped the Mary-Kate muppet. Another friend of Lohan's says "Lindsay has met the man of her dreams," which is really scary becuase the girl isn't even 21 yet. I think back all all the "men of my dreams" I met in my early 20s, and I'm glad I never settled for any of them!

Stay tuned for updates on this one! I wouldn't be surprised if this ends up in another Vegas wedding a' la Britney Spears!!

Is This Too Low-Cut?

Demi Moore: "Hey Ashton, we're going out tonight. Does this dress make my nipples look too big?"

Ashton Kutcher: "Dude, where's the top of your dress?"

You Just Don't Fit In

Martha Stewart is on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno right now.
She is wearing black leather pants.

I will try to find photos tomorrow, it's pretty heinous.

Cut Short By Simpson's "Peeps"

I was watching "Access Hollywood" tonight because my love, Billy Bush, was doing an interview with Jessica Simpson and her latest enterprise. I put aside my Dessert Body Butter for a minute to stop and watch and I was AMAZED that Jessica's "peeps" (she said that, not me, in reference to her handlers) would not let sweet Billy continue with his interview when he started trying to get information about her marriage to Nick Lachey. Enquiring minds want to know, besides, how and the hell is Bush supposed to do probably a 30-minute interview all about her ugly shoe line? Jessica's publicist got a little fiesty with Billy when he tried to find out the truth about all the tabloid headlines referring to the "Split!" of Simpson and Lachey, the bitch publicist wouldn't even let my yummy Billy-Pants ask about Jessica's involvement with Operation Smile and her recent trip to Africa (where she went allegedly without Nick).

Anyhow, this is the frustrating thing about interviewing people and I'm glad it doesn't happen to just me. (Jeremy Piven, I still hate you for being mean to me in an interview, and I will never watch Entourage ever again!) But come on! It's not like Billy Bush is some paparazzi-stalker hiding out in a tree trying for pictures. They're in a scheduled interview, so why shouldn't Jessica set the record straight on some of this bad-marriage rumor stuff? It is frustrating to be doing an interview with someone, only to have to adhere to the "rules of the publicist" and keep some topics off-limit. If more stars were up front about their lives, then maybe there wouldn't be so many tabloid rumors that they're so fond of griping about.

Here's what Billy wrote in his blog after the interview was all said and done:
On the drive home, I received an e-mail from her father blasting me for being 'untruthful' and breaking a deal he made with our producers. I checked with our producers and they told me they had agreed to pass on Simpson Management's concerns. I took them into account and resolved to make sure I handled things respectfully and gently.
I responded to him with this, and he then fired back that "your actions speak to my character." My response, this time, was quite stern in defense of my character, and I noted his "tremendous financial interest in your daughter's marriage - as a PUBLIC enterprise"...
I like Jessica Simpson a lot, and I admire Joe too...he's worked hard to help her get where she is. But, let's not forget HOW she got to this point. The marriage is what they sold to America and America bought it in droves.
My final suggestion was that they do not do any interviews at this time, if now is not a good time. Now if they do, might I suggest Mike Wallace...he loves shoes and I'm sure he'll gladly accept restrictions....

I love you Billy Bush! I love you!

Yeah Right!

From Contact Music,

BLACK EYED PEAS singer FERGIE insists she has never had cosmetic surgery, but she would consider having Botox treatment to improve her sun ravaged skin.
The singer, real name STACY FERGUSON, has spent so much time basking in the sun in exotic locations around the world, she knows the effects will soon start to show.
And Fergie would also consider surgery to maintain her sultry looks and figure as her advancing years begin to take their toll.
The 30-year-old says, "I haven't had any surgery but I would maybe consider a nip and a tuck. I've been sun tanning forever and damaging my skin.
"I would be open to botox."

08/11/2005 13:29

Here's the thing, Fergie looks NOTHING like she did when she was cute, little Stacy Ferguson on Kids Incorporated. ("K-I-D-S, Kids In-Corporated!") It's like, you've had plastic surgery, everyone in Hollywood does it now, just get over it. It's fine. You wouldn't be "hot" to some people without it, you'd still be "cute." And in the immortal words of Susan Sarandon in "Bull Durham," "I don't want to be cute, baby ducks are cute!" If you look closely, she used to look quite a lot like Candice Cameron, who was WAY more popular during this time. Maybe the plastic surgery was to make sure she didn't look like Candice? Yeah, right.

No Colin! Noooo!

I don't want to make this blog all about Colin Farrell and Paris Hilton, but they've been in the gossip rags a lot lately. This lovely gem is no exception:

The guy he's kissing is named Diego Maradona. I have no idea who that is.

Girly Girl Pick of the Week 11/07

So, there have been a few requests for lipstick picks for this week and I'd like to share with everyone a few of my favorites. Here's the thing, I've tried many cheapo lipsticks (hello?!? Wet n' Wild) and a few expensive lipsticks (not a fan of Lancome) and I've got to say that a lot of the "middle of the road" priced lipsticks are my favorites. Here's the thing, if you find one that works for you, get it and wear it and love it because lipstick colors come in and out of style faster than the seasons' skirt lengths!

My pick for this week since it also happens to still be Clinique Bonus Week at Nordstrom is Clinique Color Surge lipstick. I like Sassy Spice, but they have a wide variety of colors in this line of lipstick. I like it because it goes on a great color and stays there all day, I've put it on in the morning before and it lasts clear until I get home in the evening after talking through my job all day, and drinking drinks and snacking and the whole thing. I like to get it and pair it with Wet n' Wild lipliner, becuase I just can't bring myself to pay for an expensive lipliner, and it looks fabulous! I've had people ask me before if it's that long long wearing stuff, and it's not! (I can't wear the long wearing stuff, it dries out my lips and gives me coldsores)

It looks great alone, but sometimes for varitey I pair it with a nice gloss over the top, like Clinique's Glosswear for Lips Sheer Shimmer in Sunrise or Sunset.

And when the day's nearly done, I perk up the shine and moisture of the great lipstick with Rosebud Perfume Co. Rosebud Salve. I'm addicted to it, it's glossy and yummy and lasts forever!!!

By the way, I keep saying it's Bonus Week, and while I never pass up a freebie, this isn't the best free gift they've had. Just so you know.

Revenge of Aniston

So Jennifer Aniston was so pissed off Angelina Jolie broke up her marriage to Brad Pitt, that she grabbed her in a dark alley and stuck pins in her face!

Okay just kidding, they're probes stuck on Angelina to record her facial movements for the new animated movie, Beowolf.

Nicole Richie DOES Eat!

...sure it's a corn dog that looks really really bad, but at least she's eating!

Never a Dull Moment

Okay, so Paris Hilton is dating Stavros whatever his name is, that big tall Greek guy who was dating Mary-Kate Olsen. This being after she broke up with the first sort of tall Greek guy Paris. Anyway, according to Page Six, "'Stavros offered a homeless man outside $100 to dump a soda on himself,' a source squealed to Us Weekly. 'The desperate bum took the payout and everyone laughed.'" NIIICE GUY!

And then Paris is apparently in a catfight with little Mary-Kate over the guy. In this video, Paris Hilton is talking on her cell phone while exiting her limo and calling someone "ugly and anorexic!" Methinks she's talking about either Mary-Kate or Nicole Richie!!

"Hi, Pot? Kettle." And what's up with the hammertoes?

Go To Jail P. Diddy Puff Daddy Combs

So, I heard this on CNN this morning, and then re-read the actual news story today:

FEC is asked to investigate Sean 'Diddy' Combs
Nov 3, 2005, 23:40 GMT

WASHINGTON, DC, United States (UPI) -- A formal complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission Thursday claims Sean 'Diddy' Combs violated federal law during the U.S. presidential campaign.

The National Legal and Policy Center, NPLC, claims Diddy violated the Federal Election Campaign Act and the Internal Revenue Service Code, when he rallied support of Democratic presidential candidate, Sen. John Kerry, reported.

The NLPC alleges a Detroit rally conducted by Diddy`s non-profit group, Citizen Change, included speeches from actor Leonardo DiCaprio and Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick urging the crowd to oust President Bush from office.

The complaint asks the FEC to investigate whether Diddy used his company`s corporate funds to illegally support Citizen Change.

The complaint also alleges Diddy may have used his 'Vote or Die' campaign as a commercial endeavor to make money for his clothing line.

Combs was not available for comment.

Credit: United Press International

So, nothing would make me happier than seeing Diddy go to jail after watching him treat those poor girls on "Making the Band 3" like total crap. He made them run, like, seven miles, while he followed them in a rickshaw and yelled at them with a megaphone. He then flaunted the fact he had water and stuff to drink while they were "out of shape." THEN he made them do a dance audition and sent three of them home because they were tired!!! And when one poor girl had to go to the hospital for popping her hip out of the socket and tearing a ligament, he sent her home too! Karma's a bitch Diddy, Karma's a bitch.

More Observant Things in Pictures

You can see Paris' birth control patch through her costume. At least she's using protection because it would be a crashing blow to society if she decided to procreate. There are some stars who serve as poster children for the promotion of involuntary sterilization. I kid! I kid! I just love to hate Paris.

The brand of underwear she's wearing says "Trashy" on the tag.

I did a Double-Take

So, I'm reading up on Colin Farrell because I have a thing for brooding Irish guys, since I'm sometimes a brooding Irish girl. I've found one of my favorite new bars is The Republican, because I'm not the only brooding Irish person. Anyway, I digress.

Here's this picture of Colin Farrell, obviously smashed at a bar, which is fine because that's his thing. But WHAT does he have hanging from his pants? Rabbit's foot? Coin purse? I don't know, because at first glance it didn't look like EITHER of those things:

Really, Ryan Seacrest is Straight

Found this little snippet at about Ryan Seacrest's big plans for Halloween.

"Ryan Seacrest, is set to be the “Queen of the Carnaval” at the 18th Annual West Hollywood Halloween Costume Carnaval on October 31st, 2005, the largest Halloween street party in the world.
The honorary title is a highlight at the evening festivities, with the coronation taking place in front of over 450,000 anticipated spectators this year. The Carnaval continues to be the second largest holiday event in the Los Angeles area – second only to the annual Tournament of Roses Parade and catapults the small city of West Hollywood to 7th largest California City for one night.
The Carnaval is on Monday, October 31st from 6PM to midnight, cost is free."

Now, for those of you unfamiliar, West Hollywood is home to So. Cal's main gay and lesbian population. The only reason I bring it all up is that Seacrest goes out of his way to make sure he's perceived as so straight. He makes sure to talk about women, he makes sure women know he's dating women, he makes sure the press knows he's not really flirting with Simon Cowell. If he wouldn't make such a big deal out of his "straightness" then it wouldn't be so funny!! Anyway, we're just a couple of months away from the new season of American Idol. Yay.

Hollywood's Latest Waif

Hilary Duff is nothing but skin and teeth!

Bringing you up to Speed...

So, Ami asked and she recieved. The particulars on the Colin Farrell sex tape scandal!

From, August 11, 2005:

Colin Farrell has won a legal ban on his sex tape. .
A judge has ruled the steamy video - which the actor made with Playboy model Nicole Narain - cannot be sold, distributed or posted on the internet until the lawsuit is resolved.
Farrell's lawyer, Martin Singer, said: "We're pleased with the result. My client's privacy rights should be preserved".
The Irish heartthrob is now hoping the preliminary injunction will be made permanent.
He is suing Narain for breach of oral contract and invasion of privacy, alleging she tried to sell the tape with two porn businessmen, which the glamour girl denies. Farrell's lawyer offered to drop the lawsuit against Narain if she joined forces with them to stop the tape being made public, but she decline. Singer said: "We offered to drop the case and not seek one penny of damages against her if she would join with us in our action As of today, she has refused"
The 14-minute tape is said to show naked Narain poking out her pierced tongue and winking at the camera, while Colin says: "I could do this breakfast, lunch and dinner" It has also been reported that the model performs several positions from the Kama Sutra

So, sadly, we won't be able to watch this tape, as the judge ruled it be kept under wraps. I know, I know, it's sad but true. And certainly a sex tape we'd all rather watch than "One Night in Paris."

Drunklee Simpson! I Am Me?

I found this little nugget of information from one of the "reliable" sources I read each day, that was too funny not to pass along:

"I just wanted to let you know that last night (Nov1/05), after Ashlee Simpson's thing on Much Music, she was seen at McDonalds piss drunk, falling all over herself. It was a guy's birthday and he asked her if he could take a picture with her, and she replied, "only if you kiss my shoe". No jokes."

I have no problem with this, in fact, I'm sure I've been to a McDonald's drunk at some point in my life too. The thing I have the problem with is, here's another DRUNK UNDERAGE STAR. How come they can get away with underage drinking, a la Lindsey Lohan? Here are role models, however loosely that term applies, and little girls who want to be just like them are subject to this behavior.

Update 11/04/05: Here's video of the whole incident.

Pregnant Stars and Stuff

So Heath Ledger and Michelle Williams has a little baby girl yesterday just a year and a half after Ledger split from his girlfriend Naomi Watts because he didn't want to get married, settle down and have kids. You remember Ledger from Lords of Dogtown this past summer and Williams from... who is she again? KIDDING! She was Jen from Dawson's Creek which I still miss immensely.

In other baby news, Katie Holmes is getting big, and people wonder if she's WAY more than three months pregnant. In fact, methinks the reason a wedding even came about was because she was knocked up. Now she and Tom Cruise were spotted singing a duet of "Mustang Sally" and "Old Time Rock and Roll" at a Scientology bash last weekend. Apparently they were "laughing and smiling and talking to the crowd." They also jumped on the couches. Okay, I made that part up.

Speaking of Tom Cruise and his support for pregnant women, Brooke Shields is pregnant with her second child with husband Chris Henchy. No word on whether or not she's still taking the Zoloft.

The Coming of Seabiscuit

I heard the funniest thing on Headline News this morning regarding the American tour of Prince Charles and his wife, the Duchess of Cornbeef... err, Cornwall. They said, "The American public could not be less interested..." Why the disinterest? Are we over the royals?

From, "The day played out with Charles's visit to the United Nations, where he met Secretary-General Kofi Annan. Camilla then joined him for an all-star reception at the Museum of Modern Art, where the New York Post said of Camilla's "dowdy" blue-velvet dress: 'Queen Camilla is New York's Frump Tower.' Still, many of the paper's columnists found her extremely gracious." Meaning, Seabiscuit's hard to look at but she's got a sweet spirit.

Camilla does not compare to Princess Diana, we all loved her, and if you tell me you didn't watch her early 80s wedding, I'll say you're lying. Who can forget seeing the late Diana dancing with John Travolta, or that great red dress she wore to a state dinner? Not to mention the tragedy surrounding her death? Where are the icons of today?

Maybe Angelina Jolie and all the charity work she's currently doing, and her torrid relationship with Brad Pitt. Maybe Colin Farrell and his plight to stop the posting of his sex video on the internet. I don't know, nothing compares to Princess Di's class.

Girly Girl Pick of the Week 11/01

Since we need more girly stuff out there, a Beyond the Air reader suggested I write about my girly product picks and so I thought I'd make it a weekly thing. If you run into something I should try and then review, then please send a comment or email and I'll think about it.

I was telling reader SarahBellum about Glossing Creme from Frederic Fekkai, and the fact it's the most fabulous thing I've tried. In Utah, my hair is dry. It also doesn't help that I'm a blow dryer and color addict and that tends to make my hair look pretty rough. I've been trying to grow out my hair, and this creme makes it look much shinier and healthier than I think it really is.

The appeal of this product is the olive oil. I had an Italian friend tell me his mom used to put real olive oil in her hair and it made her hair really shiny and managable. This goes one step further than just plain olive oil, it has other good stuff in it like sunscreen and also blocks the damage from blow dryers. And, Sarahbellum, it works for curly and wavy hair too!

Stay tuned for next week's Girly Girl pick!!

Simpson Sis... crazy is as crazy does

In order to deal with her "tough life," Jessica Simpson has been seeing a therapist. Now, I'm not going to bad on people who go to therapists, or have gone to therapists or who think they might need to see a therapist. However, if you read BETWEEN the lines of what Jessica is saying in the articles regarding the subject, it's much more telling. Let me translate for you, JS is "Jessica Simpson" HI is "Holly's Insight." Shall we begin?

JS: "I respect knowledge of the psyche."
HI: "I do not even know the word 'respect,' much less the word 'psyche.'"

JS: "I would be a therapist if I weren't an entertainer."
HI: "Because 'Newlyweds' was SO entertaining."

JS: "It's a way for me to know myself, my problems and my issues. If I don't do this, I'll push everything back until I explode."
HI: "I once exploded and instead of grey matter there was chicken... or was it tuna?"

JS: "Hopefully mine and Nick's story will continue for the rest of our lives, like what we vowed, through sickness and in health."
HI: "Nick and I are getting divorced." NOTE how she says "Hopefully," which incidentally isn't even a word, meaning "I don't know if we'll last past Thursday."

Humpty Dumpty Had a Great Fall

Apparently everyone's favorite Gleaming the Cube (okay, he was hot in Pump Up The Volume too) actor has taken a big fall. According to People Magazine, "Christian Slater apparently fell off the roof of Paris Hilton's neighbor's house during a weekend party at the West Hollywood home of the hotel heiress.

Slater, 36, purportedly made his climb to inspect some folks who complained about the noise. He then landed in the bushes and was 'not injured, not hurt, not arrested,' Los Angeles Police Department Sgt. Karen Leong tells the New York Post."

Couldn't you just see Slater, in that Jack Nicholson kind of voice, jumping out of the bushes with his hands held high yelling, "I meant to do that!" This reminds me of that scene in Christmas Vacation when Clark Griswold falls off the roof and then ends up with pine sap all over him. Next thing we'll know, Paris Hilton's ferrett will end up biting through the cord to the Christmas tree lights, and fries himself into the carpet. Hilarity ensues.
