Catherine Cartan Bellis, better known as CiCi Bellis, is the 15-year-old tennis sensation and youngest American to win a U.S. Open match since Anna Kournikova 28 years ago. She has talent, she has grace, she has determination and you better believe she’ll have thousands of admirers (even if some are unwanted and inappropriate) by the time the competition is finished. Plus, she says Justin Bieber is just “okay,” which makes her so much more badass in our book.
Brangelina shock us all with secret nuptials, Tony Soprano‘s fate is finally revealed, a tell-all book will give the juicy details of Katie Couric and Diane Sawyer‘s feud and more of this morning’s celebrity news.
After a couple of so-so years, True Blood was back in the news thanks to Luke Grimes, who quit the series after refusing to play gay opposite of Nelsan Ellis’ character Lafayette. In stepped Nathan Parsons, who not only out shined his predecessor but had no qualms about giving fans what they wanted before series end: a romance for Lafayette. And the two sure looked good on screen together.
Amy Poehler’s younger brother Greg found success this summer with the autobiographical sitcom, Welcome to Sweden. Sure it helped that his sister has Parks and Rec but he proved he wasn’t a sibling taking advantage of a family member’s success. The show’s been renewed for a second season.
Laverne Cox first popped last summer thanks to the surprise success of the Netflix series Orange Is the New Black. And things really exploded at the start of the summer thanks to hype surrounding the return of the issue and covers on both Time magazine and The Advocate. She made good on the hype with a first-ever Emmy nomination for a transgender actor.
Fans of the Fuse series, Billy on the Street, are already familiar with Billy Eichner’s grumpy, zany brand of comedy. However, everyone got a taste of him thanks to a recurring role on Parks and Recreation, which led to his own sitcom deal on USA, and even more buzz about BOTS. Oh did we mention he landed a book deal and a guest spot on the CBS series, The Millers? What did you do this summer?
It should be noted that four of these stars have some connection to Parks and Recreation. Oh, the great and wonderful power of Amy Poehler.
It’s never wise to compare your wardrobe to a celebrity’s. Their lives revolve around looking good, and most of us mere mortals have more pressing issues to deal with on a day-to-day basis than how high our Louboutins are. However, while we admire the unrealistic wardrobes of the rich and the famous from afar, it can be hard not to feel a tiny twinge of envy — especially when their babies, some of them not even out of diapers, have a better clothes than we do.
It’s a phenomena that’s been gripping the celebrity world ever since Suri Cruise became the hottest young fashion icon before she even turned five: celebrity babies with killer style. From North West, recipient of lavish gifts from the world’s top designers to Harper Beckham, a mini-Posh Spice, these tiny babies are babes in the making. With Blue Ivy Carter already sporting iconic looks and Sparrow and Harlow Madden stepping off planes looking like their strutting down a runway, these celebrity offspring will make you want to rethink your entire look. That’s right, we now live in an age where there are children who are better dressed than the majority of every day adults. So prepare to be equal parts coo-ing over the cuteness and grappling with the green-eyed monster, because these celebrity kids are rocking some cool-ass clothes.
With two stylish parents, Carmelo Anthony and La La‘s son Kiyan is already a fashion king. See him strut his stuff on La La’s Full Court Life, below.

Though enhancements are routine in Hollywood, certain celebrities have publicly lamented their decisions to go under the knife. Bruce Jenner‘s bad facelift pushed him toward corrective surgery in 2009, while one time It Girl Tara Reid is haunted by a botched liposuction. And after having nearly 10 surgeries in a single day in 2010, reality TV star Heidi Montag changed her tune about the procedures later that year. Who else regrets their cosmetic augmentations? Head to the gallery above to find out.
David Gandy!!! OMG, even his name is gorgeous. Thank God I somehow found my way into the same private elevator he was riding today!!!!
Despite the ever-present heat, and the obvious awkwardness of ambushing a stranger in a confined space, David was the ultimate gentleman. He was so kind and courteous HE EVEN LET ME SMELL HIM just to make sure the amazing aroma filling the elevator was in fact his alluring Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue. Heck yes! The British supermodel told me all about what it was like working with J.Lo on the “First Love” music video. And of course I had to ask about the rumors he was considering the role of Christian Grey in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie. Oh, what could have been!
I must say, it’s very stressful being that close to someone so strikingly handsome AND alarmingly nice. His sheer beauty and overwhelming success made me question my own life, as well as all of my choices thus far!!! Either way, it was still totally worth it! I mean, a male supermodel? Why the heck not! Woo hoo!
Want to see interviews with other celebs I’ve found in the elevator? Check out the video gallery below for my chats with Adam Pally, Mira Sorvino, Cee Lo Green, and more.
