Duana and I disagree on many things – Michael Phelps, her hair, my hair, Anne Hathaway – but we are most diametrically opposed on the subject of Natalie Portman. Duey can’t bear Natalie Portman.

It’s ok to love Entourage without loving Adrian Grenier. At this point, it’s actually a requirement. Because it’s now totally NOT ok to think of Adrian Grenier as anything but a douchebag. It all started a year ago, of course, when he first became infected with Hollywood Ebola. The effects of the disease are clearly irreversible, incurable. Full Story

First let me get this off my chest: I want her hair. And while many of you have been kind to send your tips, I’ve tried… and it’s impossible. The Chinese won’t bend that way.
