Yesterday People magazine named actor Ryan Reynolds as the Sexiest Man Alive … today, we get to check out what the sexiest man used to look like in high school. Just one day after Ryan was revealed on the cover of People magazine, his yearbook senior photo page made its way to the Internets:
LMAO!! In all honesty, I think many of us would be very embarrassed to read the senior quotes we came up with for our high school yearbooks but Ryan‘s here is particularly hilarious. 4 BOYZ with the juice? LOL!! So … you wanna see what Ryan Reynolds looked like in high school? Check out his photo, after the jump … More »

Earlier this month we learned that Beyoncé teamed up with ABC to produce a Thanksgiving Night Special TV show and today we get our first look at the special, which will air a week from tonight. Here are a few screencaps from next week’s Beyoncé Thanksgiving Special:
For the most part, it looks like this special will be made up of taped concert performances interspersed with behind the scenes video of Beyoncé on her I Am … World Tour. Now, I saw her show live and I was BLOWN away so, yeah, I am looking forward to watching this special next week. After the jump, check out a preview video of the Beyoncé Thanksgiving Special to get a taste of what’s in store for Thanksgiving night next week … More »
On Tuesday we got to see some of the men that GQ magazine has selected as their Men of the Year for 2010 and last night at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood, CA some of those honorees strutted their stuff on the red carpet at the GQ 2010 Men Of The Year Party. Here are a few photos from the red carpet arrivals and some deets about the even itself:
Most of the guests jammed into the legendary hotel’s courtyard, where they stood and mingled under the stars and lighted trees. The exception was Kid Rock, who sat at a reserved glass table inside, his furry vest thrown across the back of the couch and a cigar in his hand. Eventually Rock, in jeans, a black shirt and black hat, made his way to the courtyard entrance, where he chatted with Kimmel and other guests. Waiters carefully maneuvered through the crowd, balancing trays of sesame chicken tenders, bacon wrapped shrimp, teeny grilled cheese sandwiches, sliders from Umami Burger, veggie spring rolls and grilled flatbread with prosciutto, figs and arugula. But the biggest hit was the mini-cupcakes by Susie’s Cakes. Grey Goose cocktails flowed while DJ Mr. Best did his thing … All of the honorees looked spiffy, but some admitted they don’t put too much emphasis on fashion. Donovan, the soccer star, wore a Costume National suit. “I don’t ever do these things so when I walked in to get fitted, I said, ‘This is the one.’ I put it on right away. It felt good and looked good.” Kimmel, in a John Varvatos suit, confessed, “I’m the opposite of stylish. If I could go to work in my underpants then I would.” The exception was Drake (in Prada), who actually seemed touched to be called one of GQ’s Men of the Year. “Being a part of rap music, being 24 years old and wanting to participate in a gentleman-like lifestyle — I strive to be a gentleman — it’s an honor. It’s probably the greatest accolade I’ve ever received.” Ruffalo did a nice spin on the black carpet to show off his Neil Barrett suit for a television camera. “I’m married to an ex-model (Sunrise Coigney),” he said in explaining his turning skills. “She’s like, ‘Do it again. Turn that shit around. Let’s see.’”
Any event that culls together so many hot men (except for David Arquette, that is) is bound to be a good time. I’m happy to see that my boy Milo Ventimiglia graced the event last night with his hottie presence. There aren’t many events that celebrate men in Hollywood in quite this way so it’s always a treat to see men being honored for being gentlemen. It’s always a good time when you’ve got hot men all dolled up in spiffy suits. Well done, GQ.

The Royal Engagement of Prince William and Kate Middleton is the latest pop culture moment to be immortalized in animated for by the Taiwanese company Next Media. Here are a few screencaps of the animated version of the couple’s engagement news:

Check out the video in full, after the jump … More »
In an effort to get out and enjoy the cool SoCal night last night, David and I ventured out for a little shopping trip at The Grove. For the most part we did a lot of window shopping but did enjoy a casual stroll around the outdoor shopping area. We stopped in at the Whisper Lounge for a couple of drinks and a bit of convo:
All in all it was a pretty nice and quiet night. My plans for tonight got changed up a bit. I was supposed to go to a screening of Tron: Legacy but it has been moved to Saturday night instead. I think David and I are going to try and meet up with our friend Jordan who we haven’t seen in an ice age … tho, it’s possible that we will enjoy another easy, breezy night of a whole lotta nothing.
We’re just one day away from the weekend … I hope you’re having a great day!!
OY! Things have not been going well for the newest castmember of The Real Housewives of NYC. Back in June we learned that Sonja Morgan got busted for drunk driving. Today we learn that she has been forced to file for bankruptcy. I guess them checks from Bravo TV ain’t cuttin’ it … Sonja is broke, y’all:
One of New York’s “Real Housewives,” Sonja Tremont-Morgan, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Wednesday in Manhattan. Morgan, who joined the cast of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of New York City” in its third season, listed $19.8 million in debt and $13.5 million in assets on her bankruptcy petition. “The decision to seek bankruptcy relief was not an easy one, but unfortunately, I am at a crossroads in my life,” Morgan said in court papers. She blamed her financial woes on a failed venture with Hannibal Pictures Inc. to make a movie starring John Travolta. That film was to be called “Fast Flash to Bang Time,” court papers said. Morgan said the movie never got off the ground because of “various conditions” that Travolta demanded and her production company, Sonja Productions, could not meet. Hannibal Pictures filed a lawsuit against Sonja Productions in California and won a $7 million judgment. Morgan said she wasn’t adequately represented at the trial and has filed an appeal. Morgan also pointed to her “bitter” and unresolved divorce from her husband, a man she described as “many years my senior and a descendant of J.P. Morgan and John Adams.” While she works to resolve these disputes and formulate a plan of reorganization, Morgan said she hopes to take preserve the value of her assets and continue her career as a television personality. She said her appearances on “Real Housewives” position her to pursue potentially lucrative endeavors, like writing a cookbook an developing a clothing line. On her website, Morgan says she’d be Andy Warhol’s muse today (if the artist were alive) and proclaims that her friends — royalty, fashion designers, celebrities, philanthropists, socialites and powerful bankers — “follow her to whatever venture she attaches herself and which city she finds herself” … Reached Wednesday, Morgan’s attorney and a Bravo representative declined comment.
While this news is sad, especially considering Sonja is a single mother, I am most disappointed by her DUI arrest last Summer. To be honest, Sonja is prolly my fave castmember on The Real Housewives of NYC but it’s getting really annoying that many of these “fabulously wealthy” people sign up for reality TV and then spend themselves broke right before our eyes. I honestly hope Sonja gets her affairs in order … as I said, I like her on the show. Mebbe she needs to do a little less spending a LOT less drunk driving and a little more reserved constraint in the fame department.

Last December we learned the fantastic news that musician Lisa Loeb, known for her always stylish eyewear, would be designing her own line of eyewear called the Lisa Loeb Eyewear Collection. Today, all these months later, we finally learn that Lisa has officially launched her new eyewear collection for sale to the public:
@lisaloeb4real — Yay!My eyewear line is out! www.lisaloebeyewear.com now available – let me know your favorite eyewear store so we can sell them there!
If there is any person on Earth who should have their own line of eyewear, it’s Lisa Loeb. Lisa has named each of her designs after album titles (Firecracker, Hello Lisa, etc.) or song titles (Lucky Me, Probably, etc.) from her immense catalog of music and, as you can see in these beautiful promo photos (shot by my friend Justine Ungaro), Lisa‘s new line of glasses captures and represents her smart, sexy and classy sense of style. Head on over to Lisa‘s eyewear collection website HERE to watch a great promo video of Lisa talking about her designs. Then click HERE to find a store that carries the collection or HERE to order online. I just love Lisa so much … this sounds like the PERFECT new endeavor for her. Leave it to Lisa Loeb to make glasses look so sexy and fun!
It’s official! Alanis Morisette and hubby Mario Souleye Treadway are going to give birth to a baby boy any second now! Alanis‘s publicist has officially confirmed that she is giving birth to a baby boy … which isn’t really news to those of us who recall that we learned the sex of Alanis‘s baby earlier this month when we saw photos from her boy-themed baby shower here in SoCal. Still, I think it’s very nice to know officially that Alanis is having a baby boy:
Alanis Morissette is getting ready for a new little man in her life! The pregnant singer, 36, is expecting a baby boy, her rep confirms exclusively to UsMagazine.com. Morissette first shared her pregnancy news with Us Weekly in August. She wed rapper MC Souleye, 30 (real name: Mario Treadway), this past May 22 at their Los Angeles home. “We’re very excited to embark on this journey with each other,” she wrote on her Twitter page soon after tying the knot.
In the end it really doesn’t matter if Alanis Morissette is having a boy or a girl … all that matters is that her baby is born happy and healthy. I am quite confident that she will be an amazing mother and that her son will benefit greatly from her spiritual and musical influence. I can only imagine what effect her pregnancy is having on her art … I cannot wait to hear Alanis‘s next collection of new music. I think it’s very safe to assume that her new music will be influenced greatly by the conception and birth of her baby boy :D
