If you love The Real Housewives of New York as much as I do, then you probably either love or hate Luann. Excuse me, Countess Luann de Lesseps. I personally find her a bit obnoxious, mostly because she finds the needs to remind everyone that she is a Countess. Every. Single. Episode. As if we care, right?

Well, it appears that Countess Luann has been de-throned, so to speak, of her Countess status. Turns out ol' Mister Count was seeing somebody on the side. Sad, sure. But, what is Luann going to do now?

PS: Vicky from The Real Housewives of Orange County has a stalker! Who the hell would want to stalk Vicky?

PPS: It's not Jenna, it's Jeana, CelebTV.com. Get it straight. K, thanks.


A little preachy, but a good reminder none the less. Serious stuff, people.

Another Reason I Love Pharrell.

What was Pharrell Williams to do when a McDonald's in Paris wouldn't serve him his desired Big Mac and milkshake because it was too early for lunch? Sing and dance, of course!

Just another reason I love Pharrell Williams.

Spa Week.

If you love getting pampered as much as I do, then you will love Spa Week. Spa Week runs from April 13th to the 19th and consists of hundreds of spas around the country offering their services at huge discounts.

Dying for a green tea body massage at Modern Day Spa or a botanical facial at Spa Noa? Of course you are. I'll be heading to Modern Day Spa for a much-needed massage. Thanks to Amy for this fabulous heads up!

Lauren Conrad 70% Off and Still Overpriced!

I really have a beef with Lauren Conrad. The Hills starlet launched her own fashion line recently (strike 1) and it has taken a turn for the worse. Blogging fashionistas are hum-humming that her line is about to fold and her website's "70% Off" doesn't exactly help dispel those rumors.

Perhaps good ol' LC should have thought twice about pricing her "fashion line's" cotton, Forever 21-esque frocks at over $200.00 (strike 2). The sillouhettes are nice, the colors are whatever, but there is absolutely nothing remarkable or special about her clothing line (strike 3). I am actually offended that LC thinks she has enough "star-power" to charge the American public so much for dresses I could buy at H&M, Forever 21, or God forbid, Wet Seal.

Even at up to 70% most of her clothing is still over $100. Give me a break. If you are going to charge $200 for a dress, give me some silk, give me some amazing print, give me something interesting and unqiue!

LC, get over yourself. I'm happy that you are actually going to fashion school unlike some celebrities (cough Heidi Montag cough), but still!

Did anyone else notice that half of the models on her website look exactly like her? Or is that her? I can't even tell.

Nuts for Necklaces.

Betsey Johnson's Black Bow Necklace: Lovely!

Kate Spade 'petits fours' flower necklace: Cute!

J. Crew silk ribbon necklace: Adorable!

If you know me, you know I am gaga over oversized
jewelry; necklaces in particular. I am dying over these beauties!

Grey Gardens: High-Society Gone Mad!

If you happen to love Jackie O as much as I do, then you're equally excited about Grey Gardens premiering on HBO on April 18th featuring Jessica Lang and Drew Barrymore.

Grey Gardens is about the infamous duo, Edith Ewing Bouvier Beale (Jackie's aunt) and Edith Bouvier Beale (Jackie's first cousin), the eccentric, socialite pair who went mad in their Long Island summer home.

Who has HBO? I am dying to see this!

Amen, Sister!

Personal finance expert, Suze Orman, is mighty angry at old Georgie boy. Suze recently sounded off on George Bush by blaming the ex-president for the financial crisis.

"You blew up every single financial vessel we had and if you think you aren't personally responsible, well, the blame starts at the top. There is no higher top than you, SIR! If I were you, I would feel so absolutely horrific that I would take every penny I had and distribute it to anybody and everybody to help them in whatever way I could. You owe the American people every penny of your fortune and your family's fortune."

Now, that's a woman with an opinion. I love it!

Meghan McCain, John McCain's daughter and political blogger, has been the target some of unkind words recently regarding her weight. Meghan's weight was first scrutinized by radio personality, Laura Ingraham, who said she was “too plus-sized to be a cast member on the television show The Real World."

Meghan is a size 8.

"My weight was consistently criticized throughout the campaign. Once someone even suggested I go to a plastic surgeon for liposuction. Afterward, I blogged about loving my body and suggested critics focus their insecurities about women’s bodies elsewhere. On the other side, my mother was constantly slammed for being too skinny, so the weight obsession of the media and our culture goes both ways. It also goes to both parties."

I've seen pictures of Meghan McCain and let me tell you, she is not plus-sized in my book. I'm so tired of all the weight-commentary. Last time I checked Meghan was not a professional model. What does Meghan's weight have to do with anything?

Fashion Week has come and gone and this year there were a
lot of tumbles on the catwalk. ABC News put together this hilarious
little slideshow high-lighting some of the week's worst tumbles.

Me thinks these designers either need to
A) Get better models or B) Pass on the 4 inch heels!

Natasha Richardson.

Natasha Richardson has reportedly died after a tragic ski accident. I loved Natasha in The Parent Trap, didn't you? Rest in peace.

Update: Now the news is saying she is brain dead. Who knows!

Jetset Stays.

I have been a really lucky little girl. I have stayed in some fabulous hotels,
including some of those listed below. But, I have a bunch more I'd like to stay in,
including the infamous Mondrian Hotel in Los Angeles and The Ritz Paris
The Ritz Paris, ie: former home of Coco Chanel

Infamous Mondrian Hotel in Los Angeles
Some places I stayed in last summer:

Hotel La Porte de Monaco

I'd also like to stay at Burg Hohenstein.

Where are you dying to stay?

The Pope Is An Idiot. Strike Me Down Now.

Honestly, I just can't understand this. The Pope seems to believe
that condoms are not the answer in fighting AIDS in Africa.

"You can't resolve it with the distribution of condoms. On the
contrary, it increases the problem," said the Pope on his way to Africa today.
In fact, the Pope (not surprisingly) suggests abstinence in the fight against AIDS.

This is just more proof that the Vatican is irrelevant.
Who put this guy in power? Oh right, God did.

Scary Stats.

"At least 3 percent of District residents have HIV or AIDS, a total that far surpasses the 1 percent threshold that constitutes a "generalized and severe epidemic," according to The Washington Post.

That's 2,984 people for every 100,000 over the age of 12. In fact, DC's HIV/AIDS rate is higher than countries like Kenya, Uganda, and West Africa.

This doesn't come close to home, it is home.

There's no excuse for this. Get tested.

Save Anna!

This t-shirt has been out for awhile, so it's not exactly
hot-off-the-press or anything... But, I really want this t-shirt.
Love it!

I Heart Brunch!

I've had brunch on my brain recently. Nothing is better than rolling out of bed, throwing on your sundress, flip-flops, and throwin' down some waffles and mimosas (and bellinis, my fave!) first thing at 11 in the morning.

Il Fornaio in the Reston Town Center is amazing. I have yet to try their brunch, but I hear excellent things. Check out their brunch menu here.

I've also been dying to get brunch at Georgia Brown's in DC for some down-home cookin' with a sophisticated twist. Their bruch menu is to die for.

To Do: Brunch this weekend.

Like A Fresh Battery.

In honor of No Doubt's return the stage (I die, I just die!) here's one of my favorite No Doubt songs - New. This is absolutely my favorite No Doubt to sing in the shower, kiddies. I'm so happy they're back!

"You're different, you're different from the former
Like a fresh battery I'm energized by you."


Ladies and gents,

I'm now on Twitter. If you happen to love Twitter as much as I do, follow me here.

All my online love,



Daylight savings was just the other day and you know
what that means? Spring is just around the corner. It's times
like these that I wish I lived in Paris so I could stroll through
their famous flower markets. Amazing, huh?

Britney's Wardrobe Malfunction!

Oh my heavens! During one of Brit Brit's recent concerts, she utters "My pus*y was hanging out!"

Did she seriously say that?! Check out the video above, right around 0:33, lovelies!

Faux Pas?

I love Bravo's The Real Housewives of New York/Orange County and Atlanta. They're wildly entertaining. I stumbled upon New York housewife, LuAnn DeLesseps' blog. LuAnne, a real life countess, claims to be a manners guru. Here are her list of Tech Etiquette:

• Putting your phone on the table when you arrive at a restaurant. All electronic devices belong out of sight.

• Making calls in elevators. Texting works best.

• Disruptive ringing. Your phone should be turned off in quiet places and meetings—switch to vibrate.

• Taking calls in the company of others is rude.

• Serial calls. Making long calls or one call after another on public transportation or in public places is inconsiderate. Some people think the world is their office.

• Talking too loudly or offensively. It is like secondhand smoke. You just can’t escape it.

• Holding a phone or text-messaging while driving. It is tempting, but taking your eyes off the road to dial, read, or send a message is just plain dangerous.

• Not being able to resist glancing at your e-mails at a meeting or restaurant. Few things are more irritating than speaking to someone who is obviously distracted.

• E-mails that never end. Keep your messages brief, especially since so many people are reading their messages on handheld devices.

I have to agree with most of LuAnn's etiquette rules, and have unfortunately broken some of these rules myself (especially texting while driving). Taking long calls in front of other people is so obnoxious, and is a huge pet peeve of mine. What do you think? Faux pas or not?

She Loves You.

Well, isn't that just cute.

15 Year Old Girl Beaten By Police.

Warning: The above video is disturbing. I am so disgusted that police officers like this exist.
