How can we be sure Mr Cohen wasnt buying the underwear for himself...

I know of a few men who're into that - and Brit, well, she's amply demonstrated she has a rather well developed radar for bad relationship choices.

I almost choked my tea over the monitor.

If Victoria Beckham has banned size zero models from wearing her jeans, does this mean she won't be wearing them in public?

Oh wait, it'll be okay - she's a size -2!

Yeah Brit's man can buy the underwear. The question is how's he going to get her to wear them(at least when they are out on the town). If he is successful in getting her to put and keep them on a well documented process should be typed up and distributed to all starlets.

Seven pairs of underwear? Are we assuming that she is going to wash them herself? I think he'd better buy more than seven if he wants her in undies past next Wednesday. They need to get her into "undies of the month" club or something.
Don't they make disposable paper undies?

She snorted cocaine and she's still Miss.america? I'm all about forgiveness for drinking and parting hard, but this... Yikes. Tara and Kate Moss are *great* role models for girls today.

To Chasmosaur:

Well put! Or maybe Posh doesn't allow size 0's because she'd prefer size 00's?

So that was the problem, Brit thought underwear was for city folks. She didn't know country people brought those too.

Posted by: Lisa | January 31, 2007 10:17 AM | Report abuse

we need more role models who snort coke. bring back the glam 70s!!!

Oh okay, someone did see the irony in Posh banning size zeroes. Okay, good.

Posted by: not bluto | January 31, 2007 10:35 AM | Report abuse

Wait, Posh banning zeroes is like Lane Bryant selling those "no fatties" tee-shirts. Okay, not really, but awfully close.

PS. I don't think anyone ever said Miss USA was supposed to be a role model. Miss America maybe, you know, since it's a "scholarship fund." But Miss USA is supposed to be a spread for FHM, right?

Whoops- you are right! I mixed up Miss. America and Miss. USA.

Brandy had to have seen that one coming.

Why would anyone expect Liz Hurley to invite her ex to her wedding?! I don't care how long they dated! And what about that whole getting caught cheating on her in a car with a prostitute thing? People are just looking for things to fuss about if they think there's any reason she should have invited him!

Posted by: tl | January 31, 2007 11:03 AM | Report abuse

Did she at least invite Mike Meyers?

Posted by: not bluto | January 31, 2007 11:08 AM | Report abuse

not bluto,

I don't think the spread is for FHM, I think Miss USA does Playboy.

Liz may have invited Mike Myers but she left Oprah off the list as well.

Does anyone find it odd that the AP keeps saying: "Brandy, whose real name is Brandy Norwood, has publicly expressed condolences to the victim's family."

It seems like they should say Brandy, whose FULL name is Brandy Norwood. It's not as if Brandy is a fake name, as the sentence above implies. It's just her first name. May be semantics, but it seems odd

That Tyra link only gives me a makeup ad and a headache. Is there a better one?

Think you can get Gene to produce your chat or at least attend once in awhile?

Anyhow, congratulations. You rock!

Posted by: Arby | January 31, 2007 12:31 PM | Report abuse

yay, Liz chat!

Posted by: SSMD | January 31, 2007 12:32 PM | Report abuse

Is Mike Tyson going into rehab? Or is he joining LiLo just to hang out? Or is he going to Wonderland to make LiLo take rehab seriously?
How funny would it be if he started dating? And then they broke up because either he bit her ear off, or he just gets fed up with her craziness?
Looking forward to reading the chat tomorrow, y'all better bring the funny.

The hypocrisy of Posh Spice is pretty funny. Guess she'll be banning herself. I've seen pictures of her when she was human and she is most definitely not "naturally" thin. I don't buy that these models are, either.

I don't blame the victim of Brandy's negligence for striking back, but $50 mil? The death was a tragedy but that amount is ridiculous. I hope it's reduced to something more appropriate, like the funeral expenses and approximate life earnings (which by no stretch of any imagination would even APPROACH $50 million) of the deceased.
