While it might’ve just been another scorching-hot, midsummer week for us laypeople, the stars were out and about, doing celebby things! Things like attending Leo DiCaprio‘s Foundation Launch in Saint-Tropez (Cara Delevingne), posing at a the Guardians of the Galaxy premiere (Zoe Saldana), and Taylor-Swifting in the streets of New York (Taylor Swift). The best part? They all looked spectacular while doing it. Read more…

Every generation thinks that their movie stars are the hottest, the sexiest, the most lust-worthy (ask your mom about Dustin Hoffman in 1968 and prepare to be shocked). But there’s nothing new in Hollywood — certainly not when it comes to its pin-ups. What was once considered attractive always come back full circle.
When a TV cast is good, it’s good. There’s nothing like a couple of co-stars who have such undeniable chemistry that it carries the show. Makes you believe in them. Makes you wish you could, like, look them up on Facebook long after the series finale. For fans of the original Beverly Hills 90210, this dream is sort of coming true. Co-stars Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling (who were BFFs on the show, and truly the only duo that stayed intact during the series’ decade-long run) are making a primetime comeback! They’re starring in a new ABC Family sitcom, Mystery Girls, where they’ll play “former co-stars on a ’90s TV show” who open a detective agency. Amaze. And it had us thinking — what if we could find out what our other favorite old school co-star characters are up to these days?
Raise your hand if Judy Blume‘s books guided you through puberty. We thought so. We’re sure you remember where you were when you read Are You There God, It’s Me Margaret, and were baffled by the dated belted sanitary pad instructions. Or when you read Forever, the famously lusty tale of a teen girl and her lover, who actually named his junk Ralph. The oft-banned, super-controversial, highly censored author’s young adult (and adult) novels were rife with memorably spicy scenes that were burned on our subconscious — and now, the legendary author’s at it again! For the first time in over a decade, Blume’s working on a new book.
Unless you’ve been living under a boulder, you know that Orange is the New Black is America’s current obsession. If you haven’t already binge-watched season two, you’re def in the midst of it (and feverishly dodging online spoilers). The jail dramedy’s so winning that, not only does it make prison seem like a slightly more sinister sleepaway camp, the inmate uniforms have spawned a celebrity red carpet trend — orange gowns.
Pregnancy is supposed to be a beautiful time. Lots of cuddling with your baby-daddy (or same-sex partner, whatever your sitch is), all the ice cream you want, attention from strangers. Not to mention the anticipation of delivering your very own, ultra-special baby human into the world. All true, but it’s also sort of scary. Who will this kid be? Will the delivery be a bloody, medieval mess? Will the child turn out to be a homicidal killer? Will you be expected to love it anyway? No wonder an entire sub genre of film and TV horror has been devoted to creepy-evil pregnancies (like Rosemary’s Baby and Village of the Damned). When Halle Berry’s new TV series, Extant, debuts on July 9th — where she plays an astronaut who returns from space, inexplicably pregnant, after a year away — we’ll get a taste of the latest version of maternity terror thrills.
Wigs are freedom! Who doesn’t want to take a break from their God-given mousy brown hair and wear totally unbelievable green curls now and then? Gaga does. Who wouldn’t love to rebel against their long locks and rock a short pixie for a week or so? Mindy Kaling certainly did it. On TV, in the movies, and on the red carpet, celebs have always embraced wigging out — it gives them a chance to try on different personas, stretch their wings and mask receding hairlines. And we love every minute of it.
Sometimes we get more invested in celebrity marriages than the celebs do. When they tie the knot, we’re thrilled. When they break up, we’re destroyed. Who doesn’t love to get caught up in the romantic drama of gorgeous, complete strangers? Speaking of, we’ve been watching ten celeb couples quite closely, and we’re convinced that they’ll get married this year.
We love celebs, but they love themselves, even more. On one level, we don’t blame them — they get constant public feedback supporting the idea that they’re the most fascinating, talented, beautiful person on earth. Paparazzi chases them down for a pic of them doing totally mundane things, like paying the parking meter. Groupies attack them after the show. Social media lauds them as the second coming! Next thing you know, they’re wandering around rocking a T-shirt emblazoned with their face on it (hi, Nicholas Cage). Read more…
