I’m sure almost every night in New York and Los Angeles, there is a room that contains handfuls of celebrities, bankers and society ladies clinking glasses and pledging thousands to some cause or another. But, though I have been to a whole lot of those kinds of soirees, I feel like the one I went to last night, a benefit for the Joyful Heart Foundation at Cipriani Wall Street in NYC, is a little bit different from the others. I can’t imagine there are many other events where you would see Ice-T and Coco meet wide-eyed teenagers, Debra Messing loudly promising to kiss a stranger, Samantha Ronson teaching a Christie’s auctioneer how to hold a mic, and Hilary Swank dancing in her seat as Harry Connick Jr. improvised lyrics in praise of Mariska Hargitay. (I mean, it’s no Channing Tatum grinding with Elton John, but still.) And in-between it all we are moved to tears by stories of women surviving rape and abuse, and others fighting for a future where “Special Victims Unit” sounds like a quaint relic of the past on par with typewriters and scullery maids.
Variations of this scene have been going down for years, since Law & Order: SVU star Hargitay decided to make it her mission to heal the kind of victims she’d been helping onscreen as Det. Olivia Benson. And I can tell you from experience (and full disclosure, one of my BFFs works for Joyful Heart) that this isn’t some token cause for the actress. She throws herself into it, and brings her very famous friends along with her. Read more…
I’ll Have Another was wearing the roses after Saturday’s Kentucky Derby, but we all know he wasn’t the only star of the event, which has become as much about watching the attendees as it is about the horses. As in years past, celebs put on their derby best to enjoy a day of mint juleps and betting. Although there was little sun in the sky, the folks in Churchill Downs were still seen wearing everything from traditional Kentucky Derby hats to some more elaborate and daring headwear. Coco, Ginnifer Goodwin, Cyndi Lauper, Star Jones, Mary J. Blige and Miranda Lambert were among the ladies showing off straw, feathers, flowers and bows on their heads. Even a few male celebs, like Ashton Kutcher, Kellan Lutz and Joey Fatone, joined in on all the hat fun. Here’s a look at the 20 best celebrity hats at this year’s Kentucky Derby.
We knew Coco and Ice-T are a couple of many talents. We have also seen plenty of evidence on TV, Twitter and interviews that they’re often just like regular people, despite those ample talents. So when VH1 News caught up with the adorable twosome at the New York premiere of Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour, we asked if, like the rest of us, they had fantasies of running away and joining the circus. Or the cirque. And oh, they have more than just fantasies.
“I was in gymnastics in high school, so I did the high bars, parallel bars, pommel horse, so …,” Ice revealed, leading us to believe that he had a whole backup plan if that rap thing didn’t pan out.
“I think I’m the flexible one in the house,” Coco put in. And her hubby agreed, “Yeah, she would be the contortionist,” before the interview devolved into talk of the kind of flexibility you don’t show off onstage. Anyway, yeah, we’ve seen evidence of Coco’s flexibility. Read more…
Paris Hilton stepped out onto the beaches of Sydney yesterday looking as though her top had been attacked by a grizzly bear. We were starting to wonder if she’s hooking up with X-Men’s Wolverine, but then we realized it’s just some kind of new-fangled fashion forward swimwear. The heiress is no stranger to strange beachwear, having graced many shores in outfits ranging from glam to gross.
Of course, Paris isn’t the only star who likes to bare her bod in unique styles. Head on down to the gallery below to catch some of the craziest (and hottest!) celebrity bikinis of all time! From Kim Kardashian to Jessica Alba, Eva Longoria to Ke$ha, we’ve got ‘em all. Let the weird tan lines begin!
After the comedown from a weekend filled with Mad Men and Hunger Games premieres, this Monday was starting to look pretty bleak. But then, like a gift from the entertainment heavens, came this clip of Ice-T’s wife Coco whacking TV host Andy Cohen with her butt. Oh joyous day! The model and star of Ice Loves Coco appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens: Live to discuss the supreme court ruling on healthcare. Just kidding, she was there to talk about her butt. And of course she also tried to tell it apart from pictures of her boobs (it’s harder than it sounds).
But don’t think the interview was just an excuse for gratuitous booty shots. We learned some vital facts about Coco, too! When Andy asked her what part of her body she was most shy about, she responded as only Coco can. “I don’t have a shy part. No, I’m an exhibitionist!” Ya think? She also admitted that the craziest place she’s ever had sex was in the car…while Ice was driving. Maybe that’s why Ice got pulled over the other day? Hmmm…

The return of Mad Men is so close we can smell it, and it smells like Lucky Strikes and Canadian Club. The record busting series has made its stars Jon Hamm, January Jones, Christina Hendricks and Elisabeth Moss the hottest names in television. But the show also features some already-familiar faces. Community‘s Alison Brie has a recurring role as Trudy Campbell, while former House regular Anne Dudek often appears as Betty Draper’s gossipy neighbor Francine. Tom Hanks‘ son Colin, The Nanny star Charles Shaughnessy, and even Secret World of Alex Mack actress Larisa Oleynik are among the many who’ve taken smaller roles on the series over the years.
Voluptuous vixen Coco turns 33 today, and you know she has a lot to celebrate. Thanks to her — assets, she’s made quite the name for herself. The buxom blonde started as a model in her teen years. At age 18, she went on to compete in fitness competitions, even winning the Mexican title, Miss Ujena Fitness. Then she branched out into acting and made her way into some low-budget films. It was on set where she met her current husband of 10 years, Ice-T.
Given the short life of most celebrity couples their decade together is remarkable. Their secret? Taken straight from her Twitter, here’s some relationship advice in under 140 characters: “Don’t touch a black man’s Kool aide, there may be some consequences.” We’re watching E!’s Ice Loves Coco to figure out what the heck that means.
Coco loves her curvacious body, and she knows we do too! Never one to be shy in front of the camera, the starlet posed for Playboy in 2008. Using her, um, “talents,” she managed to market herself as a web-personality and has her own fashion line.
We here at theFablife hate to follow the pack, so rather than celebrating Coco’s 33 years with pics of her more obvious assets, we thought we’d take a minute to point out all the other beautiful things that we, and Ice-T, love about her.
Butts! Butts! Coco must have all the butts in the world! Oh, sorry…we almost lost it there for a minute. Luckily for the bottoms of Manhattan, Ice-T‘s lady and reality show costar was able to control herself outside The Wendy Williams Show today, keeping her booty grabbing mania to a minimum by reserving her goosing for inspirational speaker, self-help guru and Oprah favorite, author Iyanla Vanzant. On a related note, Iyanla Vanzant seems like she’s our kind of lady. And a lot of fun to hang out with! Coco was allegedly on the show with her adorable lumpy dog Spartacus to promote the current second season of Ice Loves Coco, but it’s pretty clear she was mainly in New York to put in some booty duty. Isn’t it enough to have the most awesome butt on all of television, Coco? Must you possess all our behinds, too? Will your your love of butts never be satiated?
Did you forget it was Valentine’s Day today? Did you wonder why you kept seeing heart-shaped boxes of chocolate everywhere you went, but never really put two and two together? Did you wake up screaming in the middle of the night as you realized your loved one is probably expecting at least a card? Don’t worry. TheFABlife has your foolishly unprepared back. There’s no better way to say “Please don’t break up with me” than with one of our sensual celeb-entines! Let the sight of Nicki Minaj, Rihanna or Kristen Stewart save your forgetful behind. So print them off, cut them out and run to your love! Go! Go now! Before it’s too late!
