Guys, Ellen Page is ... ugh, she's just the best. She's so charming and adorable and smart and, for real, the "adorable" part needs to be mentioned one or two (or a million) more times. And this, this new haircut she's got, it's just all kinds of lovely.
Oh, yeah, and that shirt she's wearing? That's the official shirt of Lena Dunham's book tour, and this photo was actually posted on Lena's Instagram. Does that add something to the wondrousness of this photo? Why, yes. Yes, it truly does.
Great job, ladies. Keep on doing exactly what you're doing, because it's working so very well.
"Putting the girls and Rob, now, on magazines definitely sells them, but I taught the kids a long time ago that it [confidence] starts with when they were younger. I've tried hard to raise strong daughters and give them a sense of self-esteem ... We're such a close family we're always encouraging one another. I think just to be a real supportive parent and tell them how much they are loved and how beautiful they are on the inside ... as long as they were okay on the inside, then everything else would be gravy."
--Kris Jenner discusses her parenting style, is actually kind of admirable on this front. Who knew?!
Isn't it just great to know that, despite all the wackiness and obnoxiousness, this family really is loving and kind to one another? It's easy to forget, what with all of Kylie Jenner's lip shenanigans and Khloe Kardashian's very questionable choices in men (just to name a few issues), that this is a real family, but obviously they are, and obviously they're a pretty great one at that. Hooray, right?
There are few people as gross, slimy, and creepily opportunistic as French Montana, huh? We thought for one brief, shining moment that once Khloe Kardashian stopped dating him, he might fade back into obscurity, but we should have known that he would just keep clinging on. As hard as humanly possible.
He did an interview yesterday, and goodness knows he had to talk about his one true claim to fame, the Kardashian family. Here's the nauseating stuff he said about Khloe and how great she is:
"She's my baby forever. She's good. She's the best. There's no bad blood with her. I love how she is. She inspires me as a person. I'm sure I inspire her in many different ways. We just have that special relationship. Right now we're in a special zone… She's a beautiful person. I don't think a lot of people know how beautiful she is."
And then he hinted that there's a strong possibility that he and Khloe might get back together, and they even -- get them gag reflexes under control -- might be back together right this very moment:
"Our relationship – you break up you make up, you break up you make up. We went through that a couple times. You never know ... You never know, we might be together. We might not. It's a great thing to keep it in the air."
Of course, he also had to involve Kanye in it all:
"I just left him now at the studio. He'd make a good brother-in-law!"
It's just sad and desperate, isn't it? Khloe just commented about how there's no bad blood between the two of them, and then he comes in and tries to make us believe that they could be back together? Please. As in, please, French Montana, please learn how to be something other than a sleazy douchebag.
By now, we've all seen Renee Zellweger and her vastly different face, we've commented on how shockingly different she looks, and we've speculated on how she could have gotten those new features. All that is fine, it's natural to be curious and perplexed when a public figure goes out looking like a completely different person. But you know what we don't need to do? We don't need to be mean about it.
A source who is apparently close to Renee spoke to Us Weekly, and she claimed that Renee is "sort of obsessed with staying younger and is having a hard time accepting she’s not the hot young thing in Hollywood anymore." She says that Renee isn't getting any many job offers as she used to get, and "she wonders what's wrong with her." According to this source, even though she may be somewhat upset with her career, she's very happy in her personal life, but -- and this is catty as all get out -- "happiness doesn’t raise your eyelids or make you look more awake."
All right, all of that? Unacceptable. If this is true, and if this news really does come from a friend of Renee's, then that is just awful. Let's not pretend that Renee Zellweger couldn't get jobs if she wanted them, and let's also not pretend that there was ever a moment in time, past or present, when this woman was not absolutely gorgeous. Yes, she looks different, and it's intriguing and fun to talk about, but it's probably better if we don't make it this personal. Because this is positively horrendous.
If you could say just one single thing about Khloe Kardashian, it would probably be that she just absolutely beautiful. She's so pretty, and she's got such an amazing body, and it's just a good thing. You can see all that in that photo of her up there, right? She posted it to Instagram yesterday, and she's got her lingerie or whatever on, and it's nice. That was a nice thing of her to do.
OK, but if you could think of one more thing to say about Khloe, that one would be that she has an uncanny ability to be extremely inappropriate. And that's where her caption for the photo comes in:
THOT Thursday #14Milli
She celebrating reaching 14 million followers on Instagram, but that "THOT" bit, in case you weren't aware, is a charming little acronym that stands for "that ho over there." Because what better way to congratulate yourself than by calling yourself a derogatory name?
Thanks for being so predictable, Khloe. In this crazy world, it's always good to have something to count on.
Courtney Stodden, love her, is a woman of so very, very many talents. It's just that on this very special day, this most magical holiday of Halloween, those talents are a little more specific. So watch this episode of Courtney's web show, Courtney Naturally, and see her astounding pumpkin carving skills, her super spooky ghost story, and, in what may very well be the scariest thing you see all day, see her without a bra on. It's downright terrifying.
We all know of Gwyneth Paltrow's unending perfection ... mainly because she won't ever shut up about it -- but here's a new development in what seems to be a quick-grab at getting her newly-single estranged husband, Chris Martin, back: she's not the untouchable ice queen that people think she is, and she even -- gasp! -- admits that perfection is just darn unattainable.
In her recent newsletter on GOOP, Gwynnie talks about cutting lose, smoking cigarettes, and eating pizza of all godforsaken things. Check it out for yourself:
"Those of you who have read goop for a long time know that we try to do well by our bodies, our kids, and the environment as much as possible—but we make allowances for real life, too. Not only is any concept of 'perfection' untenable (and maddening), but it's not so enjoyable, either. Pizza, a cigarette at a party, a perfect martini, a daily glass of red ... these aren’t 'cheats' or 'indulgences'—these are just moments that can make a week more pleasurable, a night out with friends more fun.
This is the thing: We like to have the information we need to make our own choices. Sometimes those decisions revolve around fueling our bodies with super-clean, almost monastic meals; sometimes those decisions revolve around a grilled cheese and fries. But, really it’s about choice. It’s about controlling our destiny."
The whole point of the post is about chemical regulation in the United States, but yet she talks about smoking cigarettes -- her choice, of course -- on "pleasurable" nights. We get the point, but making it in a post about tobacco and alcohol just doesn't fit somehow ... and it seems like she's grasping at straws to be relatable ... but doesn't realize that just in 2012, only 18% of adults identified themselves as smokers.
Our point is, she's reaching ... and reaching through a thinly-disguised and "noble" anti-chemical message ... but why? Is it to show her ex that she can be taught? That she can cut loose? Or is it something else altogether?
One thing is for certain -- Gwyneth Paltrow never just does -- or says -- something for no particular reason.
Here's some more fashion-based evidence that Emma Watson can do no wrong, because this is what she showed up wearing in public, and it doesn't even matter where: when Emma Watson walks into the room, all eyes glaze over at her beauty and folks in attendance at whatever event it happens to be conceivably forget where they are. Didn't you know -- having an out-of-body experience with this kind of woman in the room is pretty customary, apparently.
Verdict: Love it, of course. It's like asking if the sun is hot. Jeez.
