QVC’s Joan Rivers Skewers Her Own Red Carpet Disasters In Us Weekly

March 10, 2010

QVC vendor Joan Rivers is all over the media this week, fallout from her Oscar “Fashion Police” commentary on E! Entertainment Television.

First, it was a profile in the Sunday New York Times. Now, Us Weekly has done a piece where Rivers rates her biggest fashion disasters. She’s as tough on herself as she is on anyone on the red carpet.

The comedian’s missteps include wearing a sleek black Vera Wang gown, and an eye patch, because she had a sty in her eye.

There’s also a nice shot of Rivers wearing a Pamela Dennis gown with a huge feather collar. “Looks like I was playing ring toss with an ostrich” Rivers tells Us Weekly.

Our favorite, however, is Rivers in a copper-colored puffy taffeta Oscar de la Renta cape. “Today, it’s Lady Gaga’s casual Friday outfit,” Rivers tells Us.

Oops, She Did It Again: Singer and QVC Vendor Jessica Simpson’s Flatulence Problem Makes The Cover Of US Weekly

February 6, 2010

Simpson's gassy moment made the cover of US Weekly

We swear we don’t buy celeb gossip rags, but we do read them at the gym. So while we were on the elliptical machine at 7:15 a.m. this Saturday morning, we couldn’t believe our eyes when we saw a more-information-than-we-want-to-know story on QVC vendor and singer Jessica Simpson.

We couldn’t quite believe what we were reading, so we had to share: Simpson’s flatulence made the cover of the Feb. 8 US Weekly.

The cover promoted the story with the headline “Jessica’s Big Oops!,” and the headline on the story inside the magazine said “Jessica Simpson Makes A Stink.” We wonder if a fellow Medill graduate wrote that gem.

The story says that Simpson, during a business meeting on her denim line in a room with five executives, “let out a very loud fart.”

Her mother apparently chastised Simpson in front of everyone, and “the tension was extreme,” a US Weekly mole said.

US Weekly also fills us in on the Simpson flatulence back-story. On the MTV show that made her and then-husband Nick Lachey famous, “Newlyweds,” Simpson told him, “You love my stinky ass.”

That’s a nice Valentine’s Day story for you. It has all the makings of a Hallmark Card.

US Weekly Says HSN Jewelry Designer And Actress Molly Sims Is Dating Our Favorite Since ‘Erin Brockovich,’ Sexy Actor Aaron Eckhart

December 1, 2009

Molly Sims and Her Grayce HSN Line

Model-turned-actress Molly Sims has been up to more than just designing a new jewelry line for HSN: She’s seeing handsome actor Aaron Eckhart.

According to the Nov. 30 issue of Us Weekly, Sims and Eckhart have been dating for several months and were recently seen together in a restaurant in Louisiana. Eckhart is on location filming a movie, “Battle: Los Angeles.”

We’ve been a fan of Eckhart ever since 2000, when we saw him playing the sexy, sensitive, long-haired biker George that romances Erin Brockovich, played by Julia Roberts.

We loved this bit of dialog in the movie when Eckhart, as George, asks Brockovich for her number, and she asks him which one.

George says: “How many numbers you got?”

Brockovich says: “Oh, I got numbers comin’ outta my ears. For instance: 10.”

George: “10?”

Brockovich: “Yeah. That’s how many months old my baby girl is.”

George: “You got a little girl?”

Brockovich: “Yeah. Yeah, sexy, huh? How ’bout this for a number? Six. That’s how old my other daughter is, eight is the age of my son, two is how many times I’ve been married – and divorced; 16 is the number of dollars I have in my bank account. 850-3943. That’s my phone number, and with all the numbers I gave you, I’m guessing zero is the number of times you’re gonna call it.”

She’s wrong. He does call. Only in the movies, folks.

Anyway, we digress. Sims last month debuted her new fashion jewelry line, Grayce, on HSN.

Sims is also in another section of the same US Weekly issue, in its “Splurge vs. Save” feature. Sims was photographed wearing several layered necklaces. But surprisingly enough, none of them appear to be from her HSN Grayce line.
