What Is Kris Humphries’ Next Gig?

It’s official: Kris Humphries could not keep up with the Kardashians. We’re sure you’ve heard by now that Kim Kardashian is divorcing him after 72 days of marriage. We guess she started feeling the old Two-and-a-Half-Month Itch. But that’s just the start of Kris’ troubles, because he’s also out of work! After becoming a “free agent” on the advice of soon-to-be-ex-momager Kris Jenner, chances are good that he won’t get signed in time to participate in the 2011-2012 NBA season. This leaves him both single and unemployed, and a prenup ensures that he won’t see a dime of Kim’s reality show millions.

But Kris fans shouldn’t fear, because the kind folks at Chippendales have stepped in! The male dancing organization has asked the former Mr. Kardashian to fill their celebrity MC spot at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas, a position formerly held by 98 Degrees singer Jeff Timmonds. Despite the stunning legacy, there’s no word on whether or not Kris will take Chippendales up on their offer. Even if he doesn’t, we’re sure Kris will land on his feet. We can think of dozens of job opportunities available to the former ball player as the result of his marriage and subsequent public heartbreaking. Keep your chin up, Kris, and remember: When one door closes, another one opens. Check out the gallery below and see what we mean!

Penn Badgley’s 25 Hottest Looks For His 25th Birthday

Penn Badgley embodies the tall-dark-and-handsome leading man of Hollywood yesteryear. Ever since appearing on our screens four years ago as the brooding Dan Humphrey in Gossip Girl, we knew big things were on the horizon for this dude. And sure enough, it’s true! He’s starring in this fall’s intense drama Margin Call along side Tinseltown bigwigs like Kevin Spacey, Demi Moore and Jeremy Irons, plus he’s been tapped to play iconic musician Jeff Buckley in an upcoming biopic. But on top of having killer acting chops, Penn is also known for his razor-sharp style. Gossip Girl has one of the classiest television wardrobes this side of Mad Men, and naturally some of that steez rubbed off on its star. And today is his 25th birthday! So in honor of his quarter century on this planet, we’d like to take a look back at Penn’s 25 hottest red-carpet styles. Enjoy!

XOXO,

Justin Bieber Celebrates The Release Of Under The Mistletoe With A New ‘Do

Now that Halloween is over, we have (un)officially entered the Holiday Season. No one knows this better than Justin Bieber, who apparently kipped trick-or-treating last night so he could stop by The Tonight Show and pimp his new Christmas album ‘Under The Mistletoe’, which drops today. But when the singer stepped in front of the cameras, we found him looking decidedly less Bieber-like than normal. Although slowly vanishing for some time now, it appears that Justin has finally decided to jettison his trademark helmet-hair look once and for all. How will wig manufactures and Tumblr survive!? His spiky new ‘do seems to fall somewhere between Vanilla Ice and Frankenstein. Who knows, maybe it was just part of his Halloween costume.

Click under the jump for more on Bieber’s hair, his new album, and his duet with Mariah Carey!

The dudes look pretty damn dapper, so sue us!  The two actors were snapped on the set of Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of The Great Gatsby, wearing steller suits and driving a seriously old school car.

We FABLifers Wish You A Happy FABuween!

Here at the FABLife, we’ve spent a lot of time showing you what everyone ELSE has been wearing on Halloween. We’ve given you the best costumes of VH1 stars, the best costumes on Twitter and the best costumes on the red carpet. But there’s one group of people we’ve forgotten about: ourselves! Over the years we’ve all gone trick-or-treating in some outfits that we’d rather forget about. But we figure that if we dish it out, we gotta be able to take it. Plus it would be cruel to deny the world these priceless photos. So without further ado, here are some of our own classic Halloween looks. Some are old and some are recent, some are cute and most are embarrassing. But it’s all us, folks. From the FABLife crew to you, happy Halloween, everybody!

Justin Timberlake Talks Living With Ryan Gosling, Fan Fiction Writers Explode

Justin Timberlake appeared on Ellen yesterday and dropped a bomb that will send fan fiction authors into overdrive. Apparently he and fellow mega-star Ryan Gosling used to be roommates! But before you let your fantasies wander, it’s probably important to note that this was when they were mere tweens, or “pre-hotties.” Little Ryan came to live with Justin when they were cast mates on The Mickey Mouse Club in the early ’90s. “His mother had to keep her job in Canada the second year that we were on the television show,” Justin explained, “and my mom was his guardian for like six months.” That’s how the bond between the two Mousketeers went deeper than most. “We were probably a little closer that the rest of the kids that were on the show just because we had to share a bathroom.”

Growing Pains: What The Hell Happened To These Sitcom Kids?

Last week theFABlife gave you a list of sitcom kids whose iconic small screen characters didn’t stop them from becoming grown-up Hollywood stars. But that got us thinking: What happened to the kids who didn’t go that A-list route and got sucked into the black hole of former child actors? We recently heard from Family Matters star Jaleel White, who said that he still feels suffocated by Steve Urkel’s high-wasted pants. But that just got us curious about the others. Kimmy Gibbler, Danny Tamberelli, Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Larisa Oleynik … where have you been!? We’re so sad that we’ve fallen out of contact with ‘em.

But never fear, folks! Through the magic of the Internet, we’ve managed to track down some of your favorite sitcom kids of the ’80s and ’90s. All you gotta do is click on the gallery below for a tearful reunion with your long-lost television friends. Enjoy! And bring a hanky.

Eric Bana Joins The List Of Really Random Actors Who Have Played Elvis Presley

All hail the king! Over 30 years after his death, Elvis Presley remains perhaps the most iconic entertainment figure of all time. Considering his legendary status, you’d think that A-listers would be lining up to play him in a biopic-to-end-all-biopics. But weirdly, the role of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll has generally been relegated to a motley crew of supporting actors, off-kilter comedians, retro-musicians and brooding models. In fact, the best that fans can hope for is the occasional mid-level celeb staring in a TV movie. And now this puzzling trend continues as Eric Bana signs on to portray Presley in the upcoming film Elvis & Nixon. How will The Hulk do as Mr. Hips? Will he outdo Bruce Campbell’s stellar interpretation in the 2002 classic Bubba Ho-Tep? Only time will tell. Until we can see it for ourselves, check out the gallery below to see other head-scratchingly random dudes who have played Elvis. And as a little hint to casting directors, Best Week Ever has a list of five actors who might be more appropriate for the job.

Tila Tequila’s 30 Most Revealing Looks

Tila Tequila is many things, but shy ain’t one of them. She’s a model who has graced the covers of Maxim, Stuff, Penthouse and more. She starred in the MTV reality show A Shot Of Love With Tila Tequila, and hosted the TV classic Pants-Off  Dance-Off. She’s an author, singer, and of course she broke Internet records by becoming one of the all-time most “friended” people on MySpace. But most impressive, she did it all while still in her 20s! Today is Tila’s 30th birthday, and when you look back on her impressive résumé, you will not see “shrinking violet” on there.

Elizabeth Olsen’s 10 Most Fashionable Looks

Go back to your solid gold penthouse in your skyscraper made of diamonds, Mary-Kate and Ashley, because there’s a new Olsen sister in town! Although not as renowned as her billionaire twin sisters, Elizabeth Olsen has also been acting since she was a tot. She had bit parts in The Adventures of Mary-Kate and Ashley VHS series, as well as a small role in the instant classic, How The West Was Fun. But while the twins developed their skills in the public eye, Elizabeth has been quietly honing her acting craft with years of study. And now it’s about to pay off, as the 22-year-old makes her starring debut in Martha Marcy May Marlene, which opens wide today! The film follows the adventure of a young girl who flees into the mountains to escape an abusive cult, and we hear it’s a tour de force. File this girl under “One to Keep an Eye On,” guys.

Not only does she have the acting chops, but she also inherited her fashionista sisters’ sense of red-carpet style. In fact, Elizabeth might turn out to be the most talked-about Olsen yet. In honor of her film’s release, we’ve assembled her top ten most fashionable looks in the gallery below. Enjoy!
