Yesterday was a bizzy day for me here in my beloved Detroit … I was on the run pretty much all day long. After I finished up with work, I made my way out to Novi to do a bit of shopping at one of my old haunts Twelve Oaks Mall, where I found this totally kickass Diesel watch:
I know I’ve been in a CRAZY obsessed Swatch watch mood lately but I just couldn’t resist buying this watch. You can’t really tell but it’s a huge watch with lots of fun neon green accents. I love it!!
After my wee shopping excursion, I met up with Tracey, Zakiya and her BFF Toni at Chuck E. Cheese so that we could have a belated birthday party for Z’s recent birthday. Needless to say, a good time was had by all:
The girls had a blast, Tracey and I got to catch up … ’twas a very fun evening.
Last night, I came back to Sarah’s and we went out to see Machete. After the jump, find out what I think of the film … More »

True Blood hotness Ryan Kwanten is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new supplemental magazine GQ Style which just launched down under in Australia. GQ Style is a supplement that comes packaged with GQ magazine and the first Aussie issue features the country’s own Kwanten. Here is our first look at Ryan‘s GQ Style cover and some excerpts from his coverstory interview:
True Blood star Ryan Kwanten is the cover face of the launch edition of GQ Style Australia. In an accompanying interview, the 33-year-old Aussie-born actor has told how he messed up an audition for Steven Spielberg after parking his pushbike in the director’s parking space. “I was running about five minutes late and there was nothing to tie my bike up to,” he explained. “So I found this sort of wooden stake and put my bike around it with this long bike chain. I went into the audition and sat down with the other guys. Two seconds later an assistant comes running in and says, ‘Does anyone ride a bicycle?’ And I’ve said, ‘Yeah, that’s me’. So he grabs me by the wrist and throws me outside. And there, sure enough, is Spielberg sitting in his big SUV. The wooden bar I tied my bike to had an S. Spielberg sign on it. Needless to say, I didn’t get that job and have never worked for Spielberg since.”
Awww … poor Ryan. Well, I guess it turns out that it was Spielberg‘s loss cuz look at little Ryan now ;) And, I have to say, despite the fully-clothedness of this cover photo, I am totally digging Ryan‘s smoldering steel gaze in this coverphoto … meow! After the jump, check out a few photos from Ryan‘s GQ Style photospread … More »
Earlier this week we learned which “stars” had been signed on to compete in the upcoming 11th season of Dancing with the Stars and today we get to see some of those stars all paired up with their professional dancing partners in new promo photos released by ABC:
The new “Dancing with the Stars” pairs put on their best poses in the dancing costumes for the promotional photos of season 11. Bristol Palin had said before that she would wear the most conservative costume in the show’s history but the final result proved otherwise. “We did our title shoot today so I got all glammed up and stuff, but I’m definitely excited to wear all those,” the 19-year-old who is paired with Mark Ballas said in an interview with Us Magazine. “I know that mine will be the most conservative and I will be the most dressed. That’s because that’s how I am and that’s how I want to dress. But it’ll be good, all the rhinestones and spray tans, that will be fun.” Comparably, her black dress in the promo is decent looking from the front view, but it has this hidden thigh-high slit as well as wide open back. Still, the title of the sexiest-looking female contestant is held by Audrina Patridge who wears a red two-piece with glitter details. Not seen in the pictures are Karina Smirnoff and The Situation who can only match their schedules one week before the show starts. Smirnoff who admitted that she is nervous about the limited time said they would have around five days to practice before the premiere on September 20.
As I proclaimed before, my support lies with the fabulous Margaret Cho … but I also got mad love for Jennifer Grey (whom I just re-fell in love with in her ’84 film Red Dawn), Florence Henderson (who doesn’t love Carol Brady?) and Rick Fox (merely because he is Eliza Dushku‘s man). After the jump, check out the rest of the promo photos released of the new DWTS cast … More »

Morrissey, singer/songwriter and very out-spoken animal rights advocate, has put the entire country of China on blast due to his personal beliefs about their stance on animal rights. According to Moz, the country’s uncaring attitude about animals makes them a “subspecies” of the human race!
Morrissey has described the Chinese people as a “subspecies” because of the nation’s track record of animal welfare. The former Smiths singer, an advocate of animal rights and a vegetarian, made the comment to the Guardian, describing the population’s attitude to animal rights as “horrific”. “Did you see the thing on the news about their treatment of animals and animal welfare?” he said. “Absolutely horrific. You can’t help but feel that the Chinese are a subspecies.” The singer also said that the writing process for his forthcoming autobiography is “almost concluded”. Last month Morrissey wrote a letter to The Times newspaper urging the Queen to stop British Army Guards wearing real fur.
Now, I can appreciate that Morrissey has strong beliefs about the rights and welfare of animals but I think it’s a bit shortsighted an only slightly outrageous to classify ALL the people of China as a “subspecies”. I get that he is trying to make a bold statement but to make such a scathing judgment on billions of people like this is a bit … silly. I love me some Moz but I wish he would tone down this sort of rhetoric a bit … especially if he is trying to affect positive change in the rights of animals. This kind of talk doesn’t just dilute his argument, it totally invalidates it.

Her Poshness, the one and only Victoria Beckham has done the unthinkable, y’all … she’s gone and joined Twitter! That’s right, now we will be able to hear from Vicki B. herself. VB‘s first tweet alerted us to the fact that she has made her way to London, England for London Fashion Week. Here are VB‘s first tweets as well as photos of Vicki B. making her grand arrival at London Heathrow Airport this week:

Earlier this week we learned that Iraq war veteran Jeff Miranda proposed marriage to Nicole Snooki Polizzi on the cover of the new issue of Steppin’ Out magazine. Today we learn that Snooki has turned down Miranda‘s proposal … and that Miranda doesn’t seem to want to take no for an answer:
Nothing can stop true love, and in the case of Jeff Miranda, he is not going to let a simple Tweet get in his way. Snooki’s boyfriend is now claiming that he’s being blocked from seeing his true love, and RadarOnline.com has all the exclusive details. Miranda proposed to Snooki on the cover of Steppin’ Out magazine, which was reported exclusively on RadarOnline.com on Monday. But the pint-sized Jersey Shore star turned him down via Twitter, and now Miranda claims the producers of the show are warning him to stop trying to contact Snooki. RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively that Miranda told Chaunce Hayden from Steppin’ Out magazine, “Ever since I’ve made it public that I want to marry Nicole, MTV’s lawyers have been calling and yelling at me to shut up. They keep threatening me with lawsuits if I don’t stop talking about her.” Jeff claims that he tried to visit Snooki at the Jersey Shore house on August 24, but the police guarding the set told him he had to leave and that he wasn’t welcome. “I’m not going to let 495 Productions keep us apart,” he said. “They don’t want us to be a couple, and they’re doing whatever they have to do to destroy our relationship. They stand to lose too much money if we’re together. They need Nicole to be single, and they’re going to see to it that she stays single.” He also denies that it was Snooki sending the Tweet herself due to strict filming rules. “I know that wasn’t Nicole who tweeted she wants to stay single. First of all, they don’t allow them to use cell phones or computers in the house.” Jeff claims that Snooki is in love with him. “She told me the last time we were together in private when the cameras weren’t on us that she wants to be with me and would give up the show for me.” Comparing his relationship with Snooki to Shakespeare, Jeff said, “it’s like Romeo and Juliet against the big corporate machines. But she knows I love her and I know she cares about me. “The truth is I love her and I want to be with her.” 495 Productions did not return requests for comment.
Erm, either this guy is a psycho stalker OR he’s just a moron looking for his own 15 minutes of fame … in either case, he sounds like the PERFECT guy for Snooki. HMMM … I just don’t understand why she would ever say no to a guy like this.
