Another prize pack coming your way this week, and it includes sunglasses, which is awesome because — as you are well aware — everyone looks hotter in them:

THE PRIZE: We’re delighted to have THREE prize packs to give away today, pictured above, and each of which includes a signed copy of Movie Star By Lizzie Pepper. Let’s read the back of the book and find out what it’s all about:

“I’ve had a million meetings in my acting career, and I had no idea that this would be the one that would change my life forever. I walked into the room, and there was Rob . . . in the flesh.”

Actress Lizzie Pepper was America’s Girl Next Door and her marriage to Hollywood mega-star Rob Mars was tabloid gold—a whirlwind romance and an elaborate celebrity-studded wedding landed them on the cover of every celebrity weekly. But fame, beauty, and wealth weren’t enough to keep their marriage together. Hollywood’s “It” couple are over—and now Lizzie is going to tell her side of the story.

Celebrity ghostwriter Hilary Liftin chronicles the tabloids’ favorite marriage as Lizzie Pepper realizes that, when the curtain falls, her romance isn’t what she and everyone else thought. From her lonely holidays in sumptuous villas to her husband’s deep commitment to a disconcertingly repressive mind-body group, Lizzie reveals a side of fame that her fans never get to see. Full of twists and turns, Movie Star by Lizzie Pepper is a breathless journey to the heights of Hollywood power and royalty and a life in the spotlight that is nearly impossible to escape.

That certainly sounds like a juicy beach-read for the end of this summer! I hope, wherever she is, Katie Holmes is reading it right now. I suspect she might be extremely sympathetic to the heroine.

THE TASK. I will pick our winners by random draw, but to keep it fun, please choose the celebrity with whom you’d most like to enter a contracted marriage, and why.

THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on Monday.  FYI, if this is the first time you’ve commented here, the system will automatically kick you into comment moderation, but don’t worry, I will rescue you. The contest is for US residents only. (Prizing provided by Penguin Random House. Thank you!)


Well Played, Elisabeth Moss


“Hey, Elisabeth Moss! As you’re going into this interview, we thought we should take some pics here in front of an oil-stained portion of a parking garage, right?”

AOL's BUILD Speaker Series Present: 'Queen Of Earth'

It’s sort of like an impromptu Vogue shoot, though – Delightful Day Dresses in Unexpected Places! — and she looks so fab. Extra bonus points for the great green shoe, which we’d been alerted about by a Fug National who spied her in this look yesterday. Apparently, the heels are metallic, though it’s hard to see in this shot.

It’s cute in motion too:

Fugma: Mischa Barton

Could a celebrity in need of some SERIOUS fashion juice entice a stylist to give freebie services by claiming it’s a charitable donation, and thus, a tax write-off?

Grandfug: Saffron Burrows

First she hit up the napkin drawer

… and now it’s someone’s cache of intimates. I know the movie is CALLED Grandma, but is there NO place in granny’s house that’ s sacred?

Fugs and Fabs: Some Samsung Party Or Whatever

Chrissy Teigen just did an ad for both Samsung phones, or the phone and the tablet or whatever they are (it’s weird – it’s supposed to be her talking about how great the Note and the Edge 6 are, but the ad makes it look like she decides one is better than the other, which doesn’t seem helpful; don’t you want her to make people think they need both?). Everyone else at this party presumably hoped there would be one in the gift bag.

Fug or Fab: Vanessa Hudgens


One thing is for sure: Chokers really ARE back. Kelly Taylor is going to be thrilled. Next up: baby tees and tiny plastic hair clips. The return of 90210 fashion aside, I want to give V. Hudge at least nominal props for this.
