Freaky Fug Friday: Winners!


Are you ready to meet the WINNERS of last week’s giveaway of Liza Palmer’s new book, More Like Her? I am sure that you are.

As a refresher, the task was to read Christina Milian’s lips, and tell us what imaginary list she’s enumerating, and all five items on it. (For example: The List: Five Reasons I Wish I’d Married CMM: 1) An endless supply of hair gel. 2) James Lafferty’s home phone number. Etc.) At LEAST five thank yous to everyone who entered this week, and with no further ado, behold the five winners:

foo:

“5 reasons I’m perfect for the re-make of Pretty Woman

1) I got the dress, see?

2) Chick behind me got the boots

3) Jason Alexander is in my purse

4) Julia Robert’s dental double is showing me her SAG card

5) I just ate a croissant.”

Angela:

“My Plan for Taking the Fug Madness 2013 Crown:

1. Cutouts. Starting with this dress.

2. See what that Kardashian over there is wearing? I’m going to copy it and add fringe.

3. Creating the Poncho Pantsuit. It will be made out of lace.

4. Get myself onto the CW for Fug The Show.

5. You know what Lindsay Lohan’s problem is? She dresses too demure. I’ll show her how it’s done.”

Erin:

“5 Potential Names for My Inevitable Clothing Line:

1) Colors A-Milian

2) Lycra A-Milian

3) Leotards A-Milian

4) Swirls A-Milian

5) Cutouts A-Milian”

Becca:

“Are you ready? Here we go! So I acted in “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” with Number 1, Nick Cannon. He’s married to Number 2, Mariah Carey, who starred in “Glitter” with Number 3, Da Brat, who recorded a song for “Precious,” which also had Number 4, Lenny Kravitz, who acted in “The Hunger Games” with Number 5, Jennifer Lawrence, who was in X-Men: First Class with Kevin Bacon! See? It works every time!”

TonyG:

“So, I wore this to a party given by my BFF, J.Lo, who dared me that I could not be the first person to score five different categories with one outfit on GFY. So, I said, Hola, hater! What about what I have on right now? It’s almost, but not quite worthy of Crotchtacular, but I am so gonna be listed in:

1. WTF

2. The Evils of Satin

3. Accessories to the Crime

4. Pattern Problems

5. Oh, Honey No!”

Freaky Fug Friday: Christina Milian


And the books just keep on coming!

THE SITUATION:  Christina Milian, waiting for her car at the valet. Giving the hand to a girl whose outfit I just realizes seems to involve a swimsuit. But she’s not our concern….not yet.

THE TASK:  Christina looks as thought she just listed off five items, finger by finger. What are they? What she needs to get at the grocery store? Her reasons for wearing what I suspect is a vintage 80s Hypercolor dress from Wet Seal? Her plan for invigorating her career? Her regrets at not marrying Chad Michael Murray when they co-starred in that ABC Family movie together? Read her lips, and tell us what imaginary list she’s enumerating, and all five items on it. (For example: The List: Five Reasons I Wish I’d Married CMM: 1) An endless supply of hair gel. 2) James Lafferty’s home phone number. Etc.)

THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on Sunday.

THE PRIZE: Yay! This is a good one. We’re giving away 5 copies of Liza Palmer’s new book, MORE LIKE HER (US and Canadian residents only).  What’s it about? BEHOLD:

“What really goes on behind those perfect white picket fences?

In Frances’s mind, beautiful, successful, ecstatically married Emma Dunham is the height of female perfection. Frances, recently dumped with spectacular drama by her boyfriend, aspires to be just like Emma….Yet sometimes the golden dream you fervently wish for turns out to be not at all what it seems—like Emma’s enviable suburban postcard life, which is about to be brutally cut short by a perfect husband turned killer. And in the shocking aftermath, three devastated friends are going to have to come to terms with their own secrets . . . and somehow learn to move forward after their dream is exposed as a lie.”

I have read it myself, and I think you guys will really enjoy it. It’s about relationships and friendships and break-ups and work and hot dudes and a little bit about BBQ, and it’s a really good read (it’s also all set in my hometown, which I extra-enjoyed).  I hope you win!

MESSY Monday Giveaway


We are so stoked about this giveaway.  As we mentioned in our 10,000th post, Heather and I have a new book coming out (so if you’ve been meaning to pick up the first one, Spoiled, now is a good time). The great Mindy Kaling blurbed it, and everything. We are excited:

It’s called Messy, it’s a follow-up to Spoiled (with all the usual suspects present and accounted for — Brooke, Molly, Teddy, and, obviously, Brick Berlin, given that he’s never met a sequel in which he didn’t feel the need to star), and it comes out June 5th, 2012, just in time for y’all to read it by the pool accompanied by a be-umbrellaed beverage. What is it about? Let’s take a squizz at the back cover:

Now that Brooke’s caught a taste of fame and her movie star father’s attention, she wants to launch a blog that will position her as the ultimate Hollywood insider. But between schoolwork, party-planning committee meetings, and spa treatments, she hardly has the time to write it herself…
Enter Max McCormack, an aspiring author with a terrible after-school job pushing faux meat on the macrobiotic masses of La-La Land. Max reluctantly agrees to play Brooke’s ghost-blogger for an impressive salary, and the site takes off, but how long can their lie last? In person, Brooke can’t live up to the intellectual wit of openbrooke.com, and Max soon begins to resent hiding her genius behind a bandage dress-wearing blonde. Can the girls work together to stay on top, or will the truth come out and ruin everything they’ve built?
You will have to buy the book to find out… unless, of course, you win this giveaway. Heather and I are giving away three (3) Advanced Reading Copies this week! (You’ll even get the original cover.)
THE TASK: Please compose an acrostic of the word MESSY — as a reminder, an acrostic is a poem in which the first letter of each line spells a word when read vertically, in this case, MESSY (so the first letter of the first line would be an M). The subject of your poem is the Hollywood star who has, in your opinion, the messiest closet/personal life/car/yacht/career. Extra points for originality (in other words, unless the 75th poem about Lindsay Lohan is really, really tremendous, it will probably not win).

THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on THURSDAY NIGHT. This contest is open to ALL READERS. If I have to mail this thing to Siberia, I will.

THE PRIZE: I just told you, dude. An ARC of Messy. Autographed and everything!

Freaky Fug Friday: Kristen Stewart


And it’s BACK. Are you ready to win some books? I know you are. Thanks for helping us out with this, K Stew:

THE SITUATION:  Kristen Stewart, leaving (or heading to) the Balenciaga show in Paris, and POSSIBLY wearing shoes that are attached to her leather leggings, like you do. I’m wearing some now! (By which I mean, I’m wearing yoga pants.)

THE TASK: We haven’t done a haiku recently — due to not having done one of these in a while — so polish your 5-7-5 skillz and pen us a bitching haiku about K Stew that includes the words “vampire,” “leather” and “toes.” You can do it. Have some more coffee.

THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on Sunday.

THE PRIZE: Five of you (5)* will win a copy of Abby McDonald’s new book, Getting Over Garrett Delaney.  What’s it about? Amazon tells us:

“Seventeen-year-old Sadie is in love: epic, heartfelt, and utterly onesided. The object of her obsession – ahem, affection – is her best friend, Garrett Delaney, who has been oblivious to Sadie’s feelings ever since he sauntered into her life and wowed her with his passion for Proust [...] But when Garrett leaves for a summer literary retreat, Sadie is sure that the absence will make his heart grow fonder – until he calls to say he’s fallen in love. [...] A heartbroken Sadie realizes that she’s finally had enough. It’s time for total Garrett detox.

It’s super cute, and I know you’ll enjoy it!

*Unfortunately, this contest is open to US residents only.

Freaky Fug Friday: Rihanna, With A Prize


And the giveaways are BACK, this time with a shopping flavor. We can’t wait to see what you come up with for one. Oh, RIHANNA:

THE SITUATION:  Rihanna, filming a music video in London, and wearing every accessory known to man.

THE TASK:  Given that the accessories herein are — to employ a well-used pun — the literal accessories to her fashion crime, please name the crime novel in which Rihanna, wearing this outfit, would be a protagonist.

THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on Sunday.

THE PRIZE: It’s a good one! And very appropriate given that we’re talking about accessories. ShoeMint is giving away a credit to one lucky reader (US only this time) for any pair of shoes you like — currently, they’re featuring Rachel Bilson’s line (Hart of Dixie-style shorts to go with your shoes are up to you to track down). Who doesn’t love shoes, you guys? So have at it!
