Celebritology 2.0: November 22, 2009 - November 28, 2009

Hot Dirtbags: The top 10

Forget the "Sexiest Man Alive." We gather today to give thanks for a much rarer form of male attractor: the hot dirtbag. The topic came up in last week's Celebritology Live discussion and by the end of the chat I had promised to compile a list of my top 10 objects of attraction. Now I get that the dirtbag isn't for everyone, but hey, sometimes nice guys finish last. And to somewhat fracture the words of Mae West: when guys are good they're good, but when they're bad they're better. For some of us, the bad boy will always hold a certain attraction. If we're lucky, we know better than to act on our impulses; we learn to admire a dirtbag from afar, much as we would a Picasso dipped in ebola juice. The dirtbag criteria: A man who's attractive -- either physically or charismatically -- but whose appeal may...

Demi or not Demi? That is the question

Demi Moore's questioned cover shot. (Photo courtesy W magazine) Last week, a scandal of minor proportions erupted when photographer Anthony Citrano (among others) claimed that Demi Moore's hot new W magazine cover had not just been PhotoShopped, but PhotoShopped so poorly that she seemed to be missing one hip. Both Demi and a W spokesperson denied any retouching had taken place and the matter seemed to drift off into the land of headscratchers. Until today, when pix surfaced of model Anja Rubik wearing the same outfit on the runway. When the image is superimposed over Demi's W cover, well, the similarity isn't exactly exact, but there are some definite correlations. The heart of the debate seems to be whether a 46-year-old Moore's body could in any way rock that gold Balmain getup as well as the 26-year-old Rubik. The question of the hour seems to be that, although there's...

Will Jon & Kate really go away?

Jon and Kate Gosselin in happier times, before being chewed up and spat out by the reality show wringer. (Photo courtesy TLC) This week we have something for which to be truly thankful: The end of "Jon & Kate," though possibly not an immediate end to Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin as well-worn headline fodder. If the 15 minutes of fame for these estranged parents of eight follows a logical trajectory, the absence of a regularly airing TV show and an army of TLC publicists should cut off most of the blood supply to the couple's fame. Meaning that a year from now they'll be footnotes, with news of Jon's latest exploits falling somewhere just below the misadventures of Joe Francis or Octomom Nadya Suleman. Having said that (and you Larry David fans know whereof I speak), it is equally likely that both Jon and Kate Gosselin -- in...

Overplayed: Levi Johnston's Playgirl moment

poll by twiigs.com --- I ask because based on the pix released by Playgirl.com in an attempt to cajole us into buying a monthly pass to view an expanded gallery (I wasn't able to expense, so no go), I'm getting less heat than I would from an Abercrombie & Fitch catalog. See Levi. See Levi topless. See Levi sweaty. See Levi's armpit hair. Meh. (Photo courtesy Playgirl.com) Male nudity, beefcake, has always been a hit or miss kind of thing. Mostly miss. Witness the limited success of the male stripping industry. Even the Chippendales come off as more party prank (let's make the bride-to-be blush!) than party favor. The unadorned male body (sorry guys) just doesn't have that crucial "it" factor -- curves, smoothness, lack of lower back hair -- that keeps everything from girlie mags to the fashion industry moving along at a steady hum. (This isn't to...
