One of the articles that elicited the most response all year - Duana’s piece, inspired by Blake Lively, on how Tall Is Not Cute. We heard from A LOT of tall girls that week. An overwhelming majority fist pumping in agreement. If you missed it, I’ve reprinted it below. (Also I just had to revisit the part where Duana addresses Sasha’s height. Full Story

I interviewed Melissa Leo like 2 hours after she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress Oscar. She was really, really lovely. We were at Sundance. She said she was on her way that afternoon back to LA to start getting styled. And then a couple of weeks later her Oscar ads came out ... Sarah, at the time, compared them to a “foot wound”. Full Story

You know when someone super nerdy stands next to something super nerdy the nerdy-ness of the two combined more than doubles? This is why Comic-Con is so awesome. When thousands of them are nerd herding there together, their individual nerd components bump together and, like heating matter in a flask, it expands to explosive levels. Full Story

SO easy. Who was paid $15,000 in cash this week in exchange for frolicking around in her bikini on the beach? That’s a lot of cash money for you and me, true. But for them? It’s change. It’s really, really not much. In that world, it’s almost nothing. Consider that Tori Spelling supposedly charges at least 4 times that for a photo op with her kids and you get a sense of how low this piece of sh-t is scraping these days. Full Story

Sarah just messaged me about this video...It’s the best sh-t EVER.Family sh-t!What’s the most, most, MOST important thing in Jessica Biel’s life? What is her top priority? Easy.To remain Justin Timberlake’s bonafide. It’s what matters. The only. So much so that she can swallow all the infidelity and humiliation, so long as he publicly and demonstrably loves her. Full Story

How awesome is this picture of Anderson Cooper straight up fangirling for the Jolie on his show? The interview airs on Monday and, so far, at least from the excerpts they’re released, it’s more of the same Angelina saving the world, loving her kids, not reading the tabloids, whatever. Here’s my favourite from the advance parts of the discussion the show’s publicity team sent out this morning. Full Story

I read a quote from Rooney Mara today on Celebitchy from her interview with Allure and I thought to myself - you cannot possibly be this annoying already. So I went the Allure article to see for myself and, indeed, she really is that annoying already. Full Story
