Fugs and Pieces, November 23rd 2011


Happy Thanksgiving American readers! Happy Almost the Weekend, the rest of y’all. Due to the holiday, Heather and I will be off stuffing our faces and watching football and being grateful for stuff, but we’ll be back to regularly scheduled programming on Monday, November 28th. Until then, please enjoy Fugs and Pieces:

– A reminder! Next Saturday — the 3rd — Heather and I are hosting a Q&A with Pretty Little Liars costumer Mandi Line prior to a fashion show at Macy’s in Sherman Oaks. Come on out!

– Have you noticed that Taylor Swift makes the same surprised face EVERY TIME SHE WINS? Thank God there’s a montage. (I still enjoy you, Taylor.) (Best Week Ever)

– Speaking of Taylor’s, someone should buy Lautner a pie for being so DIPLOMATIC when explaining how insane it was that the more recent Breaking Dawn movie required him to magically fall in love with a baby. (Hollywood Reporter)

– In honor of Thanksgiving, celebrate 40 other Relevant Birds. (Flavorwire)

– Also: retro, and possibly disgusting, T-day menus. (Time)

– I LOVE that Vogue is featuring The Talented Mr Ripley for their latest installment of Dress The Part. Gywnnie’s wardrobe in that movie is to die. (Vogue)

– I’m grateful for this list of funny, hot dudes. Those are two of my favorite attributes in people! (Pajiba)

– Thank GOD someone else read the Kardashian’s novel, so I don’t have to. Because it sounds HORRIFYING….I may still read it anyway. (FourFour)

– This interview with DanRad is sixteen minutes, but it’s worth the watch. The boy cleans a toilet. He also, apparently, will buy you ANYTHING. (Broadway.com)

– Holy cow, I might hate David Beckham’s hair right now, but that dude is so cute with his kids. And Harper Seven is ADORABLE. (Lainey)

– Yeah, what HAS Kate Gosselin done to her face?¬† She doesn’t look bad — she looks kinda good, actually — but she looks REALLY different. (Celebitchy)

– This is an awesome article about the invention of the Bendy Straw. I love a Bendy Straw. (The Atlantic)

    Okay, Re: Kate Gosslin I will continue to insist that the Duggers are the only people in the TLC line-up who are benefiting at all from their fame. Like are they somehow getting more normal the longer they are on the air? Meanwhile Kate and crew are starting to merge into some sort of generic plastic-people…where does she even find the time with 8 children?

    I had forgotten how amazing the costumes were in Mr. Ripley. What I do remember, however, is how amazing the actors all looked. Like they were lit from within or something. I don’t think Jude Law has ever looked as good as he did in that film.

    The Talented Mr. Ripley is my all-time favorite film, so I loved the link, Fug Girls. Thanks. And I’m with Esmom — Jude Law has never looked as good. *swoon*

    that pic of monica and chandler will never be not funny to me!

    How did DanRad end up so RAD?

    How much did all of Kate Gosselin’s “work” cost? The only reason I am asking is because she is constantly crying poor – remember when her show was cancelled and she did the rounds of the morning shows, trying to make us believe that without a reality show, she would have no way to support her children.

    What Kate Gosselin did to her face was strip it of all dignity and shame! She did the same thing to her soul!

    Happy Thanksgiving, FugGirls!

    I don’t know about the Kardashians’ book. That scene with the mom stuffing ice kubes up her kootch is too much for me.

  9. Harriet

    (not Taylor’s)

    Kate G: botox and an eye lift is my guess

    “Thespian, not lesbian.
    Yes, and also, Yikes.

    That’s quite possibly my favourite scene in all of Friends, especially when Joey runs away screaming. Good times! XD
