"This is only the beginning."
As 2012 winds down, we will begin to see an onslaught of Year End Wrap Up posts on blogs and websites galore (yes, we’ll have some for you to read soon). Among the most popular Year End Wrap Up posts focus on lists … like movies and albums of the year. Spin magazine has yet to publish a list of their top albums for 2012 but they have made a determination on THE album of the year. This year, they have selected Channel Orange by Frank Ocean as the Album of 2012. Click below to read Spin‘s gushing love letter to Ocean‘s Orange. More »
Second Time's the Charm?
Ruh-ro … here we go again. Remember back in June of 2011 when Playboy playmate Crystal Harris left Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner at the altar when she broke off their engagement just days before their wedding was to take place? You may recall that things got kinda nasty in the following days … Harris went on the record to say that she ended things with Hef because he was terrible at sex. The couple remained estranged until February of this year when they met up at a Playboy Mansion party and, apparently, had a change of heart. In June we learned that the couple were a couple again and just this October, they celebrated Hallowe’en together as happy as can be. Today we learn that Hef has asked Crys to marry him … again. She has said yes … again. Let’s see if the pair can make it to the altar, say their I Dos and seal the deal this time. More »
Becks Goes Out Like a Champ
A couple of weeks ago we learned the bummer news that David Beckham is leaving the LA Galaxy soccer team. At the time, it was announced that the 2012 MLS Championship game — win or lose — would be his last game as a Galaxian. Over the weekend, the Galaxy took on the Houston Dynamo at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA and won by a score of 3-1. This year’s MLS Championship title is the second in a row for the Galaxy … and proved to be the perfect high note for Becks to end his time here in LA as a professional soccer player.

Magnus Mitchell Handelman Is Here!
Elizabeth Banks is definitely one of my Hollywood faves. I happen to subscribe to her blog, which is sort of working woman/fashion/feminist-y/comedic/political/mommy site all in one. Yesterday she sent out an e-mail with the subject title It’s A Boy and I was like, whaaaaaat?!?!?! And indeed, it is a boy. Elizabeth Banks and her producer/author husband Max Handelman welcomed their second son, who was born via gestational surrogate, to the world so congratulations are seriously in order!

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year
It’s that time of the year again, time when People magazine names their selection of the Sexiest Man of the Year and this year, they have bestowed that hallowed honor on the one and only Channing Tatum. While Channing has been featured among the Sexiest Men of the Year before, this is the first time he has graced the People cover as THE sexiest of them all. Considering how much lurve People gave to the cheeky male stripper film Magic Mike earlier this year, it should come as no big surprise that Channing has been selected for this tribute. Click below to see Channing‘s sexiest People magazine coverphoto, read some excerpts from his coverstory article and see which other hot mens made the cut this year as the sexiest of the year. More »
Barack & Mitt are Bros, For Real!
I, uh, don’t really know what to say about this story but … it’s a very interesting one, that’s for sure. A woman named Millicent Owuor in Nairobi, Kenya gave birth to twin sons this week and she decided to name one of them Barack Obama and the other Mitt Romney. I’m not even kidding here. Perhaps in a spirit of bipartisanship, Millicent decided to try and quell the divide that exists in American politics by naming her sons after the political foes … or maybe the lady is just batshizz crazy but … well, this is a real thing. Click below to see photos of the new mom and her sons Barack and Mitt. More »
“This happened because of you”
Congrats are in order for President Obama for winning reelection but also because … his victory tweet last night is now the most re-tweeted tweet that has ever been re-tweeted. Shortly after the election was called in his favor, President Obama posted a photo and a message on his official Twitter profile … and that message was instantly retweeted by tens of thousands of people. Justin Bieber used to hold the record for the most re-tweeted tweet ever but Obama has just snatched his wig. More »
