ShoeDazzle Review // Hooker Pumps


I joined ShoeDazzle back in February. Don't know what ShoeDazzle is? Let me give you a quick rundown. Once a month, Kim Kardashian and her stylist friends pick out some shoes they think you'd like. You pick a pair. She ships them to you for $39.95. Pretty simple, huh? Like I said, I joined in February. My shoes have been sitting in their pink and purple box until I could find something to wear them with. As you can see, not everything was going to work with these hooker pumps. I decided to wear them with a simple black sheath dress from T.J. Maxx to make them more work appropriate. The red belt was a last minute addition after I spotted a similar one in a package of Barbie accessories.

Believe it or not, the shoes didn't hurt my feet at all. I managed to wear them for eight hours without a single complaint. I almost fell down a couple of times while having my picture taken, but that doesn't count. My photographer did have me standing on a teeny tiny piece of wood. I have to give it up to Kimmy K and her stylists. The shoes are fabulous. I opted out in March because I didn't see anything I had to have. April's picks should arrive in my inbox tomorrow. I can't wait.











Next time I'll remember to take the hair elastic off my wrist.

The Talk of Tinseltown // Botox, Butts + Alaska


The director of the Austin Powers films said Mike Myers is currently working on a fourth installment. Am I the only one who doesn't care? I loved Mike on SNL, but never could get into Austin Powers.


Vice President, Joe Biden, was a little excited by the recent passing of the Health Care Bill. He hugged President Obama and said, "This is a big f*cking deal." Some people are upset by this. Yes, he should have known better than to drop the f-bomb in front of microphones, the press and a live television audience. However, he's human and some moments require colorful language.

I know I'm not the only one who wanted to yell out "HOLY SH!T" when Taylor Lautner took off his shirt in New Moon, right? Right.


Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel have confirmed they're starring in a Garry Marshall remake of the classic tv show, Laverne and Shirley. Jamie Foxx is writing the script. I don't necessarily mind a remake of an old tv show, but don't think Jessica Biel and Jennifer Garner are the right choices at all. Are they funny enough? We shall see.


Katherine Heigl is finally leaving Grey's Anatomy. The actress has wanted out of her contract for some time. She said everyone worked hard to find an amicable way of letting her go. Katherine and her husband recently adopted a baby girl. She wants to work less so she can spend more time at home with her family.


The Discovery Channel has acquired rights to an eight-episode show tentatively titled "Sarah Palin's Alaska" which will air on TLC. Sarah's reportedly getting $1 million an episode. Will you watch? I will not. I'd rather tune in to Chelsea Lately to hear her thoughts on Mrs. Palin's show.


Kate Gosselin reportedly spent $35,000 on a makeover for Dancing with the Stars. She is said to have received Botox injections, Restylane fillers, laser resurfacing, veneers, hair extensions and highlights, eyelash extensions and eyebrow shaping. This doesn't include the cost of her regular spray tans and professional makeup applications. Why would anyone vote for her? What a tv whore!


Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush have broken up again. Kim will be ok. I don't think her ass can be without a man for long. As long as the breakup doesn't effect Kim's ShoeDazzle business, I'm good.


Victoria's Secret recently celebrated the 15th anniversary of their swimsuit catalog.

Ed and Jay, you're welcome.


Zach Braff confirmed the cancellation of Scrubs on his Facebook page. This is another story I don't care anything about. Scrubs wasn't funny.

Open Letter to Kristen Stewart


Dear Kristen Stewart,

Thank you for brushing your hair. Thank you for putting on makeup. Thank you for wearing stylish dresses and heels. Thank you for making an effort. You look really pretty.











Take Me Back Tuesday // My Old Room


It's time for another Take Me Back Tuesday.




This picture was taken in either 1998 or 1999. The Hero and I had been together for a year or two. We were in my room after opening Christmas presents. I received the Nintendo 64 from Santa and nearly fell asleep waiting for my turn to play. The stereo and furniture were gifts from my grandparents. I received them prior to Christmas. The daisy comforter probably came from Walmart. There were six picture frames on the stereo and two on the wall. I still have the two larger ones with the original pictures in them. The dead rose was left on my car by an ex-boyfriend with an anonymous card. I recognized his handwriting. The card read 'you know me'. Well, duh! I was sitting in front of the new JanSport backpack I asked for. I don't think those are paint splotches on the wall. I'm pretty sure it's the reflection from the mirrors on the headboard. I guess that's it.

The Talk of Tinseltown // Salute This


Things just keep getting worse for Sandra Bullock and Jesse James. Sandra found out about Jesse's affair when In Touch magazine called her publicist. The alleged mistress is a white supremacist. See the W & P tattoos on her legs? Those stand for White Power. Her ex-husband filed legal documents stating she slept with gang members, used their child's name as her stage name for stripping and liked to make the Nazi salute. What a catch!


Kate Gosselin is acting like a diva on the set of Dancing with the Stars. She 's rude to the crew and ignores her cast members. It looks bad for Kate when she's known as the bigger bitch with Shannen Doherty there.


Will Smith is producing a remake of Overboard with Jennifer Lopez reprising the role made famous by Goldie Hawn. Overboard is one of my favorite movies from the 80s. It shouldn't be remade. Period.


Amy Poehler and Will Arnett are expecting their second child. Their son, Archie, is 16 months old.


An unnamed person in possession of the syringe used on Michael Jackson by Dr. Conrad Murray, which ultimately led to his death, is planning to auction it off for millions. This is gross not to mention unsanitary.


Rielle Hunter posed for some racy photos in a recent issue of GQ Magazine. Hunter told Barbara Walters she regrets the decision. She blames GQ for choosing the racy photos instead of the head shots they took.

Ms. Hunter, you slept with a married man running for President. You gave a tell all interview. You posed for risqué photographs. Do you really think we'd think any differently of you if your stomach wasn't showing?


Kate Winslet and her director husband are getting a divorce. Kate and Sam Mendes have been married since 2003 and have a son together.


Matt Damon says he is done with the Bourne series for good and plans to never return. He does have some ideas, however, on how to keep the Bourne dream alive without him. I think I'm speaking for everyone when I say...

A Jason Bourne film without Matt Damon is like Twilight with no Robert Pattinson.

Giveaway Winner, Target Pervert + more


First of all, I would like to congratulate the winner of my drinking giveaway.

Hissyfits & Halos



Go ahead. Tell her how jealous you are.



I went shopping at lunch today with my fabulous friend and coworker, Terri. When we were almost to her car, I noticed this giant man. Seriously, he was at least six foot three. He looked at me, looked away and looked back again. Dude was checking me out. You can ask Terri if you don't believe me. She noticed it too.

Anyway, this reminded me of the Target pervert I never told you about. The Hero and I were picking up a few necessities with the kids in tow. Please tell me I'm not the only one who goes to Target three times a week. As we were leaving, he tells me a guy from a couple lanes over was taking pictures of my ass with his phone.

"What did you just say?"

"Some guy was taking pictures of your ass with his phone."

"Are you sure?"

"Positive. There's no way he was taking pictures of anything else."

"Why didn't you go over there and kick his ass?"


"I'm flattered. Blah blah blah. You should be too. Blah blah blah."



Final Thoughts

1. Giveaways are fun.

2. Guys think I'm hot.

3. Pictures of my ass are probably on the internet.

Cheaters and whores never win.


Facing allegations of infidelity, Jesse James issued an apology Thursday to his wife Sandra Bullock and his three children, taking full responsibility for their heartbreak.

Although he called "the vast majority" of allegations against him "untrue and unfounded," he says in a statement provided to People, "There is only one person to blame for this whole situation, and that is me."

"It’s because of my poor judgment that I deserve everything bad that is coming my way," he says in the statement. "This has caused my wife and kids pain and embarrassment beyond comprehension and I am extremely saddened to have brought this on them. I am truly very sorry for the grief I have caused them. I hope one day they can find it in their hearts to forgive me." -- from People.com





I don't even know what to say.

Really, Jesse? Really?!

iLove Tuesday Tunes // Satellite Heart


Since New Moon comes out on DVD this Saturday, I thought I'd share my favorite song from the soundtrack. Satellite Heart by Anya Marina is playing in the car when Edward takes Bella home after her birthday party.

I’m a satellite heart
Lost in the dark
I’m spun out so far
You stop, I start
But I’ll be true to you

The Talk of Tinseltown // Babies, Closets + Stripper Poles


Sean Hayes, best known for his flamboyant character from Will & Grace, spoke out about his sexuality this week. In case you hadn't figured it out on your own, he's gay.


Bob Barker donated $2.5 million to PETA. Since retiring in 2008, he has promoted freedom for whales and an end to the fur trade.

As Bob would say, "Have your pets spayed or neutered."


It's official. Betty White will host Saturday Night Live on May 8. I can't wait. She's going to bring the house down.


Jake Gyllenhaal was quite smitten with Rachel McAdams backstage at the Oscars. He introduced her to a friend as the mother of his child. I think Jake's on to something here. They would certainly make some cute babies.


Jamie Foxx and Stacey Dash are dating. Some of you might recognize Stacey as Dionne from Clueless. Don't these two look smashing together?


Mario Lopez and broadway dancer girlfriend, Courtney Laine Mazza, are expecting their first child together. No matter what he does, I will always think of him as the guy who cheated with a stripper the night before his wedding to the Doritos girl.


Sean Penn was reportedly thrown out of an Oscars party for punching one of The Hurt Locker producers. The producer is said to be dating Penn's ex, Robin Wright.


Lindsay Lohan is suing E-Trade for $100 million over a Super Bowl ad featuring a baby named Lindsay. Lohan's lawyer said "Many celebrities are known by one name only, and E-Trade is using that knowledge to profit. They're using her name as a parody of her life. Why didn't they use the name Susan? This is a subliminal message."

E-Trade would be in the same predicament if they'd used the name Susan. Besides, Susan Boyle is way scarier than Lindsay Lohan.


Demi Moore gave her daughter, Rumer, a pole dancing lesson during a party at the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood while Ashton Kutcher, Jennifer Aniston and Leonardo DiCaprio looked on. Leo was spotted high-fiving Ashton.

This is inappropriate for multiple reasons.

1. No mother should teach her daughter how to pole dance. Ever. Instructional videos and classes taught by non-family members will suffice.
2. If you're going to ignore #1, you should at least teach your daughter how to pole dance in private. You don't teach her in a room full of people. You especially don't teach her in a room full of celebrities. Where there's celebrities, there's reporters and paparazzi.
3. If you're going to ignore #s 1 and 2, make damn sure the girl's step-father isn't around for the lesson. Have you no decency, Demi?


Corey Haim passed away at age 38. No illegal drugs were found in his apartment, but some prescription drugs were identified. Corey reportedly turned down an offer to participate in VH1's Celebrity Rehab days before his death.



License to Drive was my favorite Corey Haim movie. What's yours?
