If you’ve been watching Love & Hip Hop Atlanta you may have found yourself trying to explain to others why, exactly, you watch this reckless ridiculousness of a reality show. Recently my own brother made it clear that he was a little bit (or a lotta bit) disappointed in my fascination with the series. Or as he put it on my Facebook page (underneath a status update that may or may not have read, ‘Love And Hip Hop Is The Greatest Show On Earth. There. I said it…’): That show is ridiculous… y do smart people like trainwrecks? LMAO. Now in my defense, I later made it a point to note that LHHATL is also the absolute worst show on earth. Somehow, both of these things are true! And my brother is right. Smart people (and all people) inexplicably like trainwrecks, lol. Join me inside for a quasi-celebration of the trainwreck many of us know, love, and loathe (often simultaneously), Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. Oh, and the reunion show is on tonight so please don’t call me on or around 8 pm EST. Merci.
Little Miss Harper Seven was seen in the company of her mother Victoria Beckham over the weekend as the ladies showed up to a birthday party at Giggles N’ Hugs here in LA and as you can see in the photo below, Harper was sportin’ a pair of FIERCE baby shoes. Now, it’s no secret that her mama Vicki B. is a huge fan of shoes (the higher heeled the better) so it should come as no surprise that VB is passing along her love of shoes to Harper. Check out Harper rockin’ her cute and sassy shoes below … it’s only ALL KINDS of adorable. More »

It’s a pretty well-accepted fact that nobody does mean like Joan Rivers. Some of us love to love the E! queen of Fashion Police, but if you take her too seriously, you’re in for a world of hurt. Like many of us, Joan recently watched (or at least heard about) Rihanna‘s interview with Oprah. Hearing Rihanna admit that she still loves Chris Brown was definitely a big deal and Joan Rivers took to Twitter and, well, kind of roasted RiRi. Peep the tweets (including Rihanna‘s response) and tell me what you think. Was Joan being Joan, or did she go too far?

After my EPIC 15 mile run on Saturday I vowed that my Sunday yesterday was going to be really low key. I spent the early part of my day working and the majority of my afternoon reading. Yesterday evening, tho, I met up with Emma and Josh at a new eater in Silverlake called Diablo Taco primarily because of the novel way they make micheladas. I had no doubt that the michelada drinks would be amazing but I was unprepared for how FANTASTIC the food would be. Long story short, we stayed at Diablo from about 5 until 9:30 and we ate almost everything on the menu. Trust me, it was an amazing Sunday evening/night. More »
Over the past week or so we’ve been given a series of creepy video teasers that promote the forthcoming second season of American Horror Story: Asylum. So it should come as no surprise that FX has also produced a series of promo posters for the show that look very much like some of the video teasers that we’ve already seen. Click below and you’ll see the creepy nun, the creepy bathtub and the creepy staircase. Coupled with the video teasers we saw last week, it’s plainly clear to me that AHS season 2 is really working overtime to freak us out before the new season debuts in October. More »
Here’s hoping that ‘Juno Temple‘ will soon become a household name! This young actress totally blew me away when I first saw her in Notes On A Scandal with Cate Blanchett back in 2006. Since then she’s been in a slew of fantastic films like Atonement and The Other Boleyn Girl. Oh, and then she was in a little film called The Dark Knight Rises (she played Anne Hathaway‘s partner-in-crime, Jen). At any rate, I’m so pumped to see her take the lead in this indie coming-of-age flick, Little Birds! She plays alongside Kate Bosworth and Leslie Mann (Knocked Up, This Is 40). When her character runs away from home and a manic mom (Mann), she discovers a world of sex, crime, and danger… a world she is reluctant to leave behind. I’m expecting very good things from this amazing cast. Peep the trailer for more!
Little Birds is brought to you by the producers of Half Nelson and Blue Valentine. It hits theatres August 29.
After promising to bring her MDNA World Tour to Australia this time around, Madonna had to break the hearts of all of her Aussie fans by announcing that she would NOT be bringing her tour to Oz after all. At the time of the announcement, no real explanation was given as to why Maddy would not be touring in Oz for a second world tour in a row … which only added to her Aussie fans’ disappointment. Today we get to hear straight from Madonna herself why she will not be touring down under in a new video/audio message that explains in plain detail her reasoning for not touring in Oz this time around. Undoubtedly, there will be some people who are unsatisfied with Madonna‘s explanation but if you listen to the clip above, I think most reasonable people will understand. This clip is really worth listening to as it shows us a side of Madonna that we don’t usually get to see. I find this clip shows us a very human, very down to Earth Madonna. Take a listen and see what you think.
