Um, okay, one more thing. How does $1000 sound? This year we’ve added a fun new twist to NEXT BIG THING… As usual we’re gonna select a group of 27 of our faves and do an exclusive shop and some special promos and stuff but we’re also gonna have a customer poll to select the “fred fan fave” and the winner is gonna WIN $1000. I’m very excited about this part!!

I have to ask… What happened to Billy Corgan & Courtney Love? I mean, I’m all for plastic surgery, but only to make you look better… Not dead! Oh Courtz, what are we gonna do with you???

Oh Wolfgang! He may have Beyonce and Leonardo DiCaprio’s girlfriend doing the #3 soon! Wolfgang, who recently catered a celebration for B’s cover of Sports Illustrated, just found out that one of his prep cooks has tested positive for hepatitis A. There’s been no reports of illnesses yet, but the Los Angeles County Department of Health recommended vaccinations for anyone who ate uncooked food at the party and three other events from Feb. 14-20! I guess this would fall under the extreme dieting category, even for all the supermodels that attended… YUCK!
Posh could have her own reality show on NBC real soon! Vikki Posh’s camp has reported that the former Spice Girl is in the works to have her own show… Not about her life with Beckz and kidz (BOO!) but about her fashion business DVBStyle AND her move to Hollywood! OMG, yet another show that I’ll HAVE to watch! Maybe the Spicies would reunite on the show?!?
I’m still so excited and happy for Jennifer Hudson & her Oscar winz! She’s such a great role model for all us underdawgs! I can’t wait to see where her career goes. But even though she won BIG she told Matt Lauer on the Today show yesterday that she regrets wearing Oscar de la Renta’s space bolero jacket. Oh J.Hu, don’t win an Oscar & then diss your Oscar.

Hello, ladiez… It’s Wednesday – Hunk Day! We haven’t seen our totes fave hunkster, Matthew McConaughey in forevz. Well you’ll be happy to hear that he’s back in full force rockin’ the six-pack! Please enjoy these lush snaps of McConauHOTTIE at Surfers Paradise in Queensland, Australia. What a nice break from Winter! Loooking Goood! But whassup w/ that wedding band!?!
First there was Sheila E and now it’s Fergie’s turn to get glamorous! OMG, I am so obsessed with Fergie right ’bout now! Everything she does takes me higher. I thought Fergalicious was my jam but then she delivers up Glamorous! But you can’t buy it on iTunes… WT Hull, Fergie! I’m luving her stylinz’ so hard in this hot vid… She’s really channeling Madonna’s Material Girl, espesh at the Taco Bell Drive-thru. And I love her ginormous earrings. They’re just like our doorknockers! But I have Lauren and SammyJoe on the hunt for more for ya! Okay, if you ain’t got no $, take your broke ass home! Luvz ya Fergz!
Wuz up lovas! I have some groundbreaking news… Paramount has announced that JJ Abrams will be directing the next Star Trek movie!!! Okay, for the few of you that are still reading, the movie is scheduled to be released Holiday of 08. AAAAAAAA! I’m seriously dying over it! I am more of a Next Generation type girl but this is gonna be good. Star Trek XI will be focused on the first meeting of James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock at the Starfleet Academy and their first mission in space. Haloy people! Although I did hear a rumor that major actors are interested in playing roles in the movie which I think is a bad idea, I am still jazzed but hopefully the rumor is false. Okay, trekkers get your Starfleet uniforms on! See you at the cinema!
This one goes out to Jen! Check out our totes fave twins Mary-Kate and Ashley as they arrive in Paris for fashion week at the Plaza Athenee hotel near the Champs Elysees. I HATE the real fur & alligator bag, but I’m so luvin’ MK’s everything else. I sounds crazy, but I think her ripped tights are HI-larious. I really like granny fanny garb… and those white wayfarers… Gotta get me some of those!
Did anybody else besides me, Chris, Lulu and Julie watch American Dreams? I really LOVED this retro-tastic show! Meg Pryor was a gem and I loooooved that gaspy goofy look of surprise or disgust she’d have on her face in like every episode. I miss her. And I feel soooo unresolved about how the series ended, with her running away from home on the back of Milo’s motorcycle. What do you think happened to her? I’m worried. Please write home, Meg!
Today’s WRITE STUFF poem is from 16 year old Jordan Lim of Sugar Land, Texas! She loves sewing, photography, indie music and vintage clothes.
Fairy tales are over now
They went on after the book
To see how some are doing
Just take a closer look
