Question of the Day

Would you rather date Desmond Hume or Sayid Jarrah?
  • Both have great hair.
  • Both have shown complete dedication to the women they love.
  • Both have an amazing sense of style in the present day/future (I'm not yet clear on the ins & outs of time travel).

You Better Work!

She may be 51, but former French supermodel Inès de la Fressange still has it! Ines strutted her stuff on Jean-Paul Gaultier's runway and remained fierce while doing so.

Coffee, Coffee, Coffee

Breaking news, y'all: Starbucks is going to stop brewing decaf coffee after 12p.m. in an effort to save much dinero in 2009. As an evening decaf drinker- when I am not in need of an energy boost- I have a suggestion: why not brew decaf only after 12p.m. Who needs decaf in the morning?

Question of the Day

Would you rather be Ezekiel (Zeke) Emanuel, Rahm Emanuel or Ari Emanuel?

The Red and Black Lumberjack With the Hat to Match

It may not be an Oscar contender, but Notorious was a solid movie, for moments of sadness and some laughs. Though the movie provided a glimpse into the life of the late rapper Notorious B.I.G., the most interesting tidbit was something I found out after I screened: Biggie's real-life son, now 12, plays the role of his own father in his childhood years. Christopher Wallace Jr. does his poppa proud, but my other favorite performance came from Naturi Naughton who plays a young, and still feisty, Lil Kim (the Marilyn Monroe of hip hop).

Paging Dr. Ross

He's back.

Worse Than a Corn Maze

Oprah is so on it (almost)! One of her favorite show topics of late is hoarding: people who can't throw things away and it clutters their entire living space (that's a simple definition). Well, Gordon Stewart could have benefited from some O viewing. He got so lost in his maze of built up trashed that he collapsed and died of dehydration! Maybe she can interview his family or get photos of the labyrinth?

Put Your Tape Decks on Record!

This Wednesday 1/28 Oprah will be interviewing (and hopefully grilling) Ted Haggard and his wife. The show topic reads,
Evangelist Ted Haggard, His Wife and the Gay Sex Scandal: Former evangelical leader Ted Haggard on the life he hid from his wife, his children and 30 million devoted followers. The gay sex and drug scandal that took him down.
While I will watch to laugh at his suspect answers, I find this situation more sad than anything else. In a recent U.S. News and World Report interview, Haggard's 'counselor' that was helping him be straight again (no, I'm not kidding) noted Haggard had a good relationship with the G-o-d, but Haggard essentially acknowledged the fight between his mind and his biology,
"According to the Bible, you are in fine relationship with the Lord Jesus." And I said I think I am. I love Him. I've never rebelled against him willingly. This has been a wrestling in my life, never an acceptance thing."

Bred From Fabulosity

Life in the Fab Lane just got a little more fab: Kimora Lee Simmons is prego with Djimon Hounsou's baby! Will this baby get its own clothing line while still in the womb?

Can't Stop, Won't Stop

Dear Alexander,
Please remember the words of Harold Stephens, “there is a great difference between worry and concern. A worried person sees a problem, and a concerned person solves a problem.”
Best wishes to you and yours,
My Blog Can Jamp

Back By Popular Demand

It's the worried baby! I believe this pic is old, but Naomi Watts' son still shows concern on his tiny face.

Citizen's Arrest?

The fashion police are not happy with Drew Barrymore's look at Sunday's Golden Globes, but I liked it! Her hair is big, fabulous and my fave part of this ensemble and though I'm not wild about her dress' visible seams, the cut flatters her. Drew looks great and I declare her a red carpet winner! (By the way, she's ten times more gorgeous in person. I spotted her at a Mexican restaurant and couldn't help but stare.) Speaking of big hair, remember how J.Lo's 2003 Academy Awards hair was hated on at the time? Seems silly considering almost every girl has now done the same pinned back look in recent years. Perhaps Drew's will have the same mainstream success?

We Need A Resolution

Yes! In the grand tradition of postmortem biopics, the story of Aaliyah's tragically shortened life will soon be told on the big screen. Actress Keisha Chante has been tapped to play the late songstress, but will we get a cameo from Timbaland or Missy Elliott?
Don't forget, Notorious B.I.G's cinematic tale debuts this Friday 1/16/09.

The Jig Is Up

If you wear this dress on your wedding day, it should not be white.
