Ashley Olsen is a Dropout

According to an article in In Touch, Ashley Olsen doesn't feel as much pressure to attend classes at NYU now that Mary-Kate isn't there either. She also wants to get back to her acting career...

Didn't she want to be a chef?

Can anyone say New York Minute, Part Deux? Please no, no God, no. If she were smart, she'd get her degree and concentrate on her clothing line for Wal-Mart because Wal-Mart ain't going anywhere. Of course, the little girl DOES have more money than God, so maybe there's something to be said here for not needing your education!

And think of all the money she'll be saving not having to get all of those really large-sized Starbuck's lattes on the way to class!

Good for Chris Klein

I watched on E! True Hollywood Story the other night (yes, my life IS this empty, thank you very much) the "Kids of Dawson's Creek" and was reminded of the engagement between Katie Holmes and Chris Klein, pre-TomKat. The couple was so cute-- they were both young, he was taller than she, and I'm sure Klein wouldn've let Katie have drugs when giving birth.

Anyway, for whatever reason the two broke up and enter Tom Cruise. Now, Klein seems a little reluctant to offer congratulations. According to an AP article,

Actor Chris Klein Says He Won't Be Sending Former Fiancee Katie Holmes a Baby Gift

The Associated Press
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - Chris Klein says he won't be sending ex-fiancee Katie Holmes a gift or a congratulatory card after her baby is born.

"No, I don't think so," the 26-year-old actor told AP Radio in a recent interview.

"Her and my relationship is a time in the past. And it's a time that I'll always look back with in fondness, but her and I have moved on, and she has a separate life and I have a separate life. And it's better that we keep it that way."

Holmes, who starred in the TV series "Dawson's Creek," and Klein became engaged in December 2003 after five years of dating. They called off their engagement in March.

Tom Cruise, 43, and Holmes, 27, went public with their relationship in April and became engaged in June. Holmes' pregnancy was reported in October.

Klein, who starred in "Election" and two "American Pie" films, has said Cruise had nothing to do with their breakup.

I don't blame him Klein one bit!!!

Mariah Carey's Big Flapjack Nipples

Just when I start to sort of tolerate Mariah Carey, I'm reminded that she annoys me. She has a few songs lately that I actually like, and then I'm bludgeoned over the head with her "All I Want for Christmas is You" song. Well, now the holidays are over, and I'm thinking "What the hell is she wearing?" What and the hell IS she wearing as her massive cans spill out of her top? Hello? Plunging top for flat-chested girls. If you're well-endowed like Mariah, fine, some of us aren't so lucky-- we don't have any to look at, and we certainly don't want to see yours.

I won't even talk about Donnatella Versace... Sunscreen, girl!

Girly Girl Pick of the Week 12/26

My hair... sigh. It's been really short (think Demi Moore in Ghost) and long (really long) and now it's getting long again. I don't know what to do with it, so I've been into the messy bun-thing, trying to decide if I want to chop it or what. But! The messy bun-thing is very in right now, and a great look for all the holiday parties. Enter, the whispies and sort of spikeys you can create with the ends sticking out of the bun. But you need something that's going to make your hair piecey without turning it all gluey.

When I had really really short hair, I would spike it with Bumble and Bumble's Sumo Wax. It was great for creating that edgy look. They've toned down the wax with Sumotech, and it's fantastic for making the piecey whisps that come out of a messy bun.

Have fun with this product!! You only need a little, but it's better for creating updos than hairspray because it doesn't weigh down your hair. It's also great (used sparingly) for creating that wavy, messy, beach sort of hair when you have it down. It looks FANTASTIC if you blowdry your hair, and then twist some of the Sumotech into it to create sort of messy-looking dreadlocks here and there around your head for AMAZING texture.

I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas! Mine was really mellow, and I'm looking forward to getting back into the swing of life and not worrying about all the things that have gotten me down lately.

Happy hair. p.s. You can get Sumotech at

There Goes my Shot at Gavin

This morning, I was listening to Bush's "Sixteen Stone" thinking to myself, "I'm not hotter, but I'm at least taller than Gwen Stefani. One day Gavin will be mine." But nope. According to the latest rumor Gwen is taking some time off from a potential new album because she's pregnant! I actually like L.A.M.B., I'm hoping they don't come up with a maternity line. Oh whatever, congratulations to the Harijuku Girl!

Bonus Girly Girl Pick of the Week 12/19

Got some new jeans yesterday, love 'em. Get 'em. They're the perfect length, the perfect rise, the perfect little bit of stretch. Also, the black denim is THE thing for the winter and look great when paired with a funky T and heels! I got several compliments on them today. If I could more easily photograph my own ass, I'd put it on here, until then, here's a picture from Revolve Clothing. They're the Naomi fit from Citizens of Humanity, got them at Lollabella Boutique in the Gateway for under $200.

Girly Girl Pick of the Week 12/19

I admit I'm stuck a little bit in my past when I say that sometimes I still use Wet 'n' Wild eyeliners. Come on! What girl who attended middle school in the late 80s DIDN'T wear that brand of bright blue eyeliner? Besides, it was cheap. But the older I get, the less I want an eyeliner to tug on my delicate eye tissue and potentially cause wrinkles. Sephora's slim pencil is, literally, the best eyeliner I've ever tried. It's ot so hard it's going to tug, but it isn't so soft it's all smeary and smudgy (if you don't want it all smeary and smudgy. If that's your look, it smudges nicely too!)

It's totally inexpensive, $4 a pop, so I order 4 or 5 at a time and then just hang onto them in my special stash of makeup stuff. They're a little small, but they last for a very long time. From the Web site: "Line and define your way to gorgeous eyes with these long wearing pencils in a wide array of must-have shades. Our exclusive formula is creamy enough to create the perfect smoky eye, but only when you want to. Each shade can be worn over or under eyeshadow or layered, for endless combinations of eye-popping color."

Hey, that's what I said! I'm serious, you'll never use another eyeliner. Order a bunch, try different colors, Sephora is great about shipping too so if you order tonight you won't have to wait all that long. My color is temporarily out of stock, but there are still others to pick!

Take One Cleansing Breath

Kate Beckinsale likes spending a nice, cleansing afternoon working out at the gym, then stepping outside for a nice, cleansing cigarette.

Separated at Birth?

I'm a huge fan of Project Runway, I won't miss it and this season is already getting catty and good... anyway, last night I couldn't help but notice these two were separated at birth:

Designer Santino


The scary guy from Superman 2

Juicy Colin Farrell Rumor

Rumor has it the Miami Vice movie could have more setbacks due to the latest problem with star Colin Farrell, who plays Sonny Crockett. Not only was the movie delayed because of all the hurricanes, but now as the production moves to Uruguay, Farrell has allegedly OVERDOSED and checked into rehab!!!

Allegedly, Farrell had taken a South American cocktail of cocaine, marijuana and some "unknown" substance being touted as backpain medication. But his reps say the stint in rehab stems from "exhaustion and addiction to pain meds from a back injury."

Come on! Pain meds, my ass! Colin Farrell was just method acting! Remember in the mid-80s when Don Johnson played the part of Crockett and he was addicted to blow? Farrell was just doing character research and got a little too wrapped up. Damn actors, always getting so into things and forgetting they're not superhuman!! Good thing he's not playing Scarface!

I love you, Colin Farrell, and I always will; even if you are a junkie.

Get a Grip!

We've talked a lot about the many Hollywood breakups as of late, but let's examine a relationship that stays together, making me say, "Why?" Julia Roberts and Danny Moder have one-year-old twins, they're seemingly happy. Roberts has recently stated she'd like to get pregnant again, however is going to work on Broadway before that. Moder has a fairly lucrative career as a cinematographer.

Now I'm no body language expert (obviously, which is why all my relationships end up in the crapper), but this CAN NOT be the photo of two people hopelessly in love. He looks like he's being punished! He got his fourth tardy in Math and is being led by the arm all the way down the hall to detention. And that look on Julia's face! Not the face of a happy camper; she just looks freakin' mean!!!

What is worse, an unhappy couple mugging it for the paparazzi or a happy couple looking like they're literally going to kill each other? At least Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey had the common sense to fake their love until the end.

Girly Girl Pick of the Week 12/12

Bouncy hair... something we all shoot for, but sometimes come up short. Okay, I come up short. My hair is the bain of my existance and it frustrates me on a daily basis. Something that's helped me a lot lately are velcro rollers. I've read a lot about them, but I never tried them until one day on a whim. I got some of these Conair Ion Shine rollers. They're inexpensive, and they really make a difference when blow-drying your hair.

Start out blowdrying hair until it's about 80% dry, then take some volumizing spray and in sections, spray it on the underside of your hair right at the root. Roll that section in a velcro roller (it will stay in place, but if it doesn't use a little duckbill clippy). Proceed until all of your hair is rolled in velcro! Then blow dry the rest of the way dry. To give your hair time to cool in the rollers, finish up makeup or get dressed, then carefully unroll each roller. VOILA! Instant volume, straight hair, and no frizz! Finish off with a little gloss at the ends, and I swear you'll look like you just got a blowout at the salon. For next-day hair, you can spritz your roots with a little hairspray or water to re-activate the product, roll back up in the velcro rollers, set with a blow dryer and your hair still looks great.

If you don't have velcro rollers, get a couple of packs of the big-size and go to town! All you need are 6 or 8 to give your roots volume and smooth down frizzies that happen in this crazy dry and cold weather. I kid you not, this is one of the cheapest fixes for blah-feeling hair in between cuts.

Wha' The Fuh?

So, here's a little rant before I go to bed, and then I'm over it. Bear with me.

I think I'm dating this guy who seems great, yeah, he's a little younger than me, but I didn't figure there was a problem with that. Things are fantastic for a few weeks, we're getting along, things are fun, we're having fun together. Then, bam! Nothing, nada, zip, zilch. He's too busy, he's not interested, he tries giving the "let's just be friends" speech; which I do not accept. I don't need any more guy friends, especially since I enjoy kissing him and I do not usually go around kissing my friends.

We go a week, talking every night (this would be after his attempt at "let's be friends,") and then tonight he's suddenly too busy hosting a party I'm clearly not invited to, to see me this weekend. Whateva' I'm done with it, and I didn't get upset with him. When I said, "bye" to the phone call, the "bye" meant more. You know, kids, you're damned if you're cool and you're damned if you're not cool. If you give men the space they so cherish (and I do too! I don't really want to see someone every damn night of the week) then you're not clingy enough for the drama they desire. If you're too demanding, then you're a "crazy bitch." I prefer to be cool, and guys can't seem to handle that. They wonder what you're hiding, they wonder if you're too independent for them.

Guess what? I am. Independence is not a bad thing, in fact, I've worked my whole life to have a fabulous career and total independence. I'm not ugly, I'm not fat, I've got a great job and a fantastic car I love. Men can't handle that. In order to finally have supreme power (which is completely stupid) they have to throw down the "let's just be friends." I'm so tired of thinking I'm the problem, feeling like I'm not good enough for all of these guys with whom I end up spending a short amount of time and then never see again. I used to think the key component in all the failed attempts and bad dates is me or my personality, and my only fault is that I choose these men who aren't fierce enough to hang.

And so the tables are turned. The gender roles are switched where the boys end up as emotionally disturbed as they perceive the girls are. Well, this girl is not, and fierce is the key word because I am fierce. And I deserve nothing less in return.

Thanks for the vent. Feel free to email me for a pict of him, print it out, and we'll all make voodoo dolls.

One breakup I'm happy about...

So last year I went to Vegas with some friends, and we ended up partying at Body English in the Hard Rock Hotel. Color me so surprised when I found out this was the club to party in, and there were stars everywhere. Since I'm a geek, I ended up hanging out and watching the DJ, who I later found out was DJ AM, who later became engaged to Nicole Richie.

Sigh, my spikey-haired DJ in love with the newly-skinny Nicole Richie. Color me so heart-broken.

But now, "Us Weekly has learned exclusively that Nicole Richie, 24, and fiance Adam ''D.J. AM'' Goldstein, 32, have called it quits. ''They have decided to break off the engagement,'' Richie's rep Cindy Guagenti confirms to Us. ''The decision is mutual.''
Sources tell Us Weekly that the pair, who had dated since 2003 and were to wed next year, decided to break up a few days ago. Of her planned nuptials, Richie told Us earlier this year, ''I'm so happy. We're taking it slowly.''

Come on Adam Goldstein! You're hot, I'm hot and we both have a mutual appreciation for the club mix of Seven Nation Army. I will help you get over Little Miss Richie. And a little update, confirmed, from Miss Richie's publicist:
Richie's publicist, Cindy Guagenti, confirmed to The Associated Press on Wednesday that the couple have split. She said the breakup had been in the works for several days, but would not give any further details. I'm so in there!

Bonus Girly Girl Pick of the Week 12/07

Okay, so here's something I've fallen in love with and this first one was free! Okay, it was free with a purchase at Bath and Body Works. I had to spend at least $10 and I got this $7.50 lip gloss for free. I don't quite know why I got a coupon for this in the mail, but if you ever get these, use them! They rank up there with the coupons for free panties at Victoria's Secret.

I'm talking about C.O. Bigelow's Mentha Lip shine, and it is fantastic. It's minty and cooling and makes your lips feel tingly and ever so bee stung. The gloss is nice, and it's pretty moisturizing. However, the gloss doesn't stay on for very long (i.e. Rosebud Salve lasts forever, this... notsomuch) so you have to reapply. I've got the clear, and now it comes in colors. The colors are a little strange though, and I'm just going to stick with the clear. The mint is great though, and worth the number of reapplications.

While you're at the BBW, give the Tutti Dolce Lotion in Sugar Wafer a sniff... I swear if you use it, you'll want to eat your own arm!

Hello Hello

Only a week and a half until Vertigo...

Attack of the Worm

This is Dennis Rodman. I find it so very, very frightening-- he's wearing more makeup than I do!

I'm sort of having a blog post-fest tonight, it's all snowy and I don't feel like going anywhere.

Evil Doppleganger?

This was weird, I did a double-take when I saw this on Perez's site. I thought this was Jennifer Aniston, turns out it's her evil dopplegnager Mary-Kate Olsen!!! She was at the Lakers game with her new old boyfriend Jeff Katzenburg. She ditched the Greek guy for this guy again, and now the Greek guy is dating Paris Hilton.


Do Not Forget...

I had forgotten about this, but it's too good not to revisit... Fergie and the Black Eyed Pees!!

Sun Online

QUICK-THINKING Black Eyed Peas star Fergie once squirted champagne all over herself to disguise the fact she'd wet herself during a concert.
The gorgeous singer told Interview magazine: "I had a few drinks before the show, but I didn't think to go to the restroom before we went onstage.

"We were jumping around - it was all very rock 'n' roll - and my bladder just started... you know.

"Somebody brought out these champagne bottles because it was the New Year, and I basically opened one up and squirted it all over myself, so nobody would notice.

"It was a very memorable Pea experience."

My New Calling in Life

I want to start a roller derby league in Utah. I've thought a lot about this for a long time, and I've realized it's my calling.

Look at the activities they do!

You can also check out the LA Derby Dolls and see the leagues I'd join if I went to Los Angeles. My roller derby name would be Little Orphan Slammy.

Stop the Madness!!!-- Updated

I am so sick of stars filing for divorce. I need to have some hope in the world that there are relationships that actually work out. As I wander about in my haze of bad dates, failed couplings and attraction toward men who don't want me, I need to see there are people in Hollywood I can look up to! Notsomuch. No more Nick and Jessica, no more Brad and Jen, no more Kevin and Britney...

...okay, I could care less about that last one.

I'm not into Ben and Jen. I'm not into Brad and Angelina. I'm definitely not into Tom and Katie.

The latest in the Hollywood divorce club is Christina Applegate and Johnathon Schaech. I thought they were actually cute, and in every interview I've read with Christina Applegate, she seemed to really be into him. (For those of you saying, "ummm, Johnathon who?" He's the moody singer in That Thing You Do! and also was in a great TNT movie about Houdini's life.) The two filed for divorce in a Los Angeles court Monday afternoon. According to a statement released by their publicist: "After four years of marriage, actors Johnathon Schaech and Christina Applegate have filed for divorce. The decision is mutual. We have no further comment at this time."

Four years? Four years? What the hell? What is the shelf life of a Hollywood marriage? Hell, what is the shelf life of a non-Hollywood marriage?!? Anyway, the couple cited irreconcilable differences.

Updated: Just found this out from Entertainmentwise
Jennifer Aniston has burned the dress she wore when she married her now ex-husband Brad Pitt.
The actress was joined by friends to witness the ritual outside her Malibu beach home.
According to Grazia magazine the actress, who is believed to now be dating actor Vince Vaughn, was sipping champagne and laughing with friends as her wedding dress went up in smoke.

That's what we all need! An ex-boyfriend memorbilia bonfire!!

Girly Girl Pick of the Week 12/05

Okay, so the request is moisturizer. I can do that!!! First off, I've got to say that since the weather has changed, I've been a big zit. If you're feeling like me, don't stop moisturizing! The dry cold is way worse than a bad skin week, and has more long-term effects.

I use Proactiv as a cleansing system, and the moisturizer in it is fantastic. There are mall kiosks where you can get the product separate from the whole trio, but it works well on its own. It's not overdrying, but it does have a small amount of salycylic acid in it which helps combat blotchy skin and zits.

In addition to that, I use Clinique's Repairwear at night, along with Advanced Stop Signs Eye. During the day, I use Clinique's Repairwear Day (which is NOT greasy under makeup) along with All About Eyes (that I've talked about before).

Another good moisturizer, which I switch off with and use sparingly is The Body Shop's Vitamin C Skin Boost. They also have a whole line of Vitamin C products to be used together, although I haven't tried them all. I do love the consistencies of the vitamin c moisturizers and lotions and they're worth trying.

To Garfleck who allegedly gave birth to a baby girl last night. According to US Weekly, Sources confirm to Us that Garner, whose due date was December 8, had her labor induced at an L.A. hospital. The actress is married to Ben Affleck, 33. ''They induced last night,'' a friend of the couple tells Us. ''Ben was with her the entire time.'' Last night, when asked by Us when Garner would be giving birth, Garner's Alias co-star Joel Grey said ''Tonight.''
When contacted by Us, a rep for Garner wouldn't confirm nor deny news of the birth. A rep for Affleck could not be reached.


God bless Perez for this information!!!

First off! Vince "Puffy-Eyed Alcoholic" Vaughn was nearly arrested over the Thanksgiving weekend as he was allegedly under the influence (big shock) and committed a "minor traffic infraction." He and Jennifer Aniston were hanging out in Arizona, because that's just as neat as Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's world-wide peacekeeping vacation, and ended up getting pulled over near the resort where they were staying.

But, the cops let them off the hook.

Let me remind you of what Jennifer Aniston has left Brad Pitt for:

In other WOW STORIES...
Apparently Britney Spears and Kevin her wife, left their son at home for a night to spend some time dancing and parying in Los Angeles at DJ AM's club LAX. Things were fine, but when they got home, they spent the rest of the night fighting and Britney KICKED KEVIN OUT! Sources say Mr. Spears was seen leaving the house in the wee hours...

...crying out on the curb...

...okay I added that part in.
