Magic Monday

I just grabbed this clip from my fave blog of all time.... DListed.

I am dying.  Ecstasy gone very very wrong.  Or maybe in her mind, very very right.  Who the hell knows what she's thinking.

GLEE Kids Heat Things Up On The Cover Of GQ

Dianna Agron, Cory Monteith and Lea Michele slut it up hard for the November issue of GQ

Lea Michele is working overtime on those poses. She is whoring circles around Dianna in this shoot. All in all, impressive photos. Really.

Lea Michele on people’s insisting she get a nose job:

“I was one of the only girls in my high school that didn’t get one. And if anybody needed it, I probably did. But my mom always told me, growing up, ‘Barbra Streisand didn’t get a nose job. You’re not getting a nose job.’ And I didn’t. Fuck those people. That’s why I’m proud to be on a positive show and to be a voice for girls and say, ‘You don’t need to look like everybody else. Love who you are.’”
Dianna Agron on the shoot and rumors that she and Michele are real life lovers:

“When it was just Lea and me, I was like, ‘We’re in skimpy clothes, we’re up against each other. This is feeding those rumors.’ I’ve never been shot in so little clothing.”

Cory Monteith on growing up in Canada and dropping out of high school:

“You have to really look to get into trouble in Victoria, but I was industrious. Skipping school. Drinking. All that kind of crap. Things started off innocent like that. I definitely found myself in some places that I’m very fortunate I came back from…. The last thing I want to do is kind of imply to readers in high school that you too can drop out and be an actor and get on a big show and be -famous and make a shitload of money.”

Like New Coke, The Gap Is Going Back

From New York Times:  Last week, The Gap released a redesigned logo that looked like a design-school dropout's take on the modern credit card. They said it was part of the transition from "classic, American design, to modern, sexy, cool.  

And well..... people didn't like it.  In fact, thousands flocked to Facebook to scream BLASPHEMY.

So this morning the President of Gap North America issued this statement:

Since we rolled out an updated version of our logo last week on our website, we’ve seen an outpouring of comments from customers and the online community in support of the iconic blue box logo.

Last week, we moved to address the feedback and began exploring how we could tap into all of the passion. Ultimately, we’ve learned just how much energy there is around our brand. All roads were leading us back to the blue box, so we’ve made the decision not to use the new logo on any further.

At Gap brand, our customers have always come first. We’ve been listening to and watching all of the comments this past week. We heard them say over and over again they are passionate about our blue box logo, and they want it back. So we’ve made the decision to do just that – we will bring it back across all channels.

In the meantime, the website will go back to our iconic blue box logo and, for Holiday, we’ll turn our blue box red for our seasonal campaign.
We’ve learned a lot in this process. And we are clear that we did not go about this in the right way. We recognize that we missed the opportunity to engage with the online community.  This wasn’t the right project at the right time for crowd sourcing. 

There may be a time to evolve our logo, but if and when that time comes, we’ll handle it in a different way.

Hey Gap, why fix it if it ain't broke?  Why spend money changing your brands image, especially now?  Change your chinos, not your logo.  That's my two cents. 

Which logdo you prefer?

If Liza Minelli Jumps On Celebrity Rehab - IT WILL MAKE MY LIFE

This rumour just in..... TMZ is calling it so it's probaby 85% true.

Liza Minelli is in talks with Celebrity Rehab for the tune of $500,000, but Liza is skeptical. Oh... and crazy. The show was put on hold yesterday due to the fact that no d-list celebs are willing to give up their poison these days. (this season)

If only Liza will sign on....

Who's in your dream Celebrity Rehab cast? Lindsay Lohan is a shoe in obvs. Charlie Sheen could probably use some cocaine counselling. Melanie Griffith would be amazing. Who else?

Al and Tipper Gore - Split After 40 Years

They couldn't just stick it out? 40 years. A lot to throw away.

"We are announcing today that after a great deal of thought and discussion, we have decided to separate. This is very much a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration. We ask for respect for our privacy and that of our family, and we do not intend to comment further."

Overheard on the private jet....

Al: "Oh Tippy, as we fly over these melting icebergs, I just want you to know..."

Tipper: "Oh shut up Al. I'm sick of being in Earth's shadow all the time!!! That's it. I'm done."

(spoken in Jan Brady's voice)

Lindsay Lohan Has Had What Was Left Of Any Wisdom Removed

Lindsay Lohan may be court ordered to abstain from alcohol and drug use. Christ, she even has an alcohol monitoring bracelet on her wrist. But does that stop her from getting her buzz on? Hell no. Girl goes and gets her wisdom teeth pulled so the judge will allow her to pop painkillers for a week. Who said she's an idiot? In my mind, Linds is a genius.

Lindsay Lohan's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, tells TMZ, "We advised the Probation Department of the dental appointment, which was made well in advance of last week's court hearing." Chapman says she assured the probation officer she would provide "documentation about any medications that Lindsay would be taking, which would be administered or prescribed as part of the procedure."

Who Else Is Sick Of Seeing These Two?

If this is the last photo I see of Jennifer Aniston and Gerald Butler hamming it up for the cameras, it will be too f&cking soon! Over it!

Jesse James Enters Rehab. Who's Surprised?

That's what celebs do these days. Cheat on their spouses and then say sorry to the world by entering a so-called sex rehabilitation center. Blame it on an "addiction" instead of just calling it what it is. Lies. Cheating. Whoring.

The latest contestant is Sandra Bullock's cheating man, Jesse James. Surprised? Of course not. TMZ is reporting tonight that Jesse James is indeed in an Arizona treatment center that specializes in Alcohol, drug and sex addiction.

They Tweet, They Twats

OK.... did Levar Burton (Roots, Star Trek) just tweet his cell number?????


I know, you are asking.... who the f$ck is Levar Burton???? I know. Doesn't matter. Still hilarious.

Conan Is NOT Happy and Who Can Blame Him?

With NBC's announcement that they were cancelling Jay Leno's Prime Time slot this week, of course the public who actually has a funny bone was all.... but what about Conan O'Brien?

"This level of sh- - -iness was not expected," one source said.

"He's done a great job for NBC. He moved his entire staff, he moved his family to LA. And five months later, they repay him like this?"

As it stands now, the source said, "Conan would be happier somewhere else."


O'Brien has yet to weigh in on the peacock network's announcement it was canceling Jay Leno's prime-time program and hoping O'Brien would accept being bumped back to follow Leno's return to the 10:35 p.m. time slot.

However, a major NBC player said Sunday, ''If Conan plays ball, swallows his pride -- which certainly is not easy -- and accepts a return to the later slot, he stands to be paid a very hefty bonus in return.''

From the network's standpoint, paying O'Brien several million more dollars annually still would be preferable to being forced to pay the TV personality an estimated $20 million per year for the remaining four years on his contract, and have him do nothing.

Reportedly, even if O'Brien did agree to jump to Fox or ABC -- as have been floated as serious possibilities -- NBC still would have to shell out any differential that might remain between O'Brien's new contract and his old NBC deal.

For example, if Fox or ABC paid him $15 million annually, NBC reportedly would still be obligated to pay him an added $5 million to fulfill the terms of his NBC contract.

A source very close to O'Brien, who requested anonymity Sunday, said, ''Conan is extremely upset about all this, and how the news leaked out and how it has been handled by NBC -- so far. While he understands Jay's show hasn't worked, he thinks he's being made the fall guy,'' even though O'Brien's own ratings performance in the "Tonight Show" time slot has been very disappointing.

New Shoes Every Month? Yes Please

Ladies, as you know, I'm a lover of shoes. I'm a lover of designer shoes. But listen.....

I was driving one morning in my pj's to get my drive-thru Starbucks and I hear them talking about shoes. This was early a.m. and the announcer on the AM dial was marveling over her PA's hot pink heels. Said that her story about them was so cool she had to have her on air. As I wait in my Volvo for my Grande non-fat 170 degree latte, I heard all about it.

It's a shoe club ladies. Just like that music club a lot of you got suckered into, back in the 80's and 90's, "Columbia House", it's a monthly subscription. Only this time YOU GET SHOES, and if you don't want some that month, you are totally fine to pass. Just as long as you say so by the 6th of the month. Not like those random cd's, cassette tapes, 8 tracks, that just kept coming and coming. This is no obligation, easy peasy stuff.

You see you fill out a questionaire. They ask you which celebrity style you prefer over the other. Which runway look you covet over the other. That kind of thing. In a couple days, Shoedazzle's fashion stylists send you 5 - 6 picks of shoes that they think you will want to have that month. You choose a style, they ship them to you, all for only $39.95. With a return shipping waybill and everything, just in case they don't work out.

I swear to god this is not a sponsored plug. Sure the shoes are not Louboutins, but you would spend more running off to Aldo to get a new pair of black pumps for that unexpected funeral/dinner party/wedding reception, wouldn't you? Plus MORE than half the fun is waiting til the 1st of the month when they send you more selections to choose from. So if you keep with the program you will have 12 shoes by the end of the year. However, if you are like me, you won't be able to resist the urge to call their customer service and add additional pairs to your collection.

I've been a member for 4 months and have ordered more than my 'one monthly' pair. I've had success with 4 and returned (easily i might add) 2 pairs. And I only returned them because they were too wide for my skinny feet. Compliments galore AND a fun story to tell. Now when I walk in my closet, I have 6 new pairs of heels that make me happy happy happy.

These are shoes that if you get caught with in the rain, who gives a sh!t? You can go for that really trendy style you've been eyeing but didn't want to drop the bucks on. Hell, if you wear them once, it's still worth it imo. It is truly like Christmas, once a month, all year round.

These that I got are a hit. I present to you: The Odette

Hell, let's be honest, I own all three of these.....

It's free to join Shoedazzle and you aren't charged a fee until you pick your first pair of shoes. So what are you waiting for?

I know you are all wondering, "Leisa, where the hell do you wear all those shoes?". I'm a Mom so really, am I going to rock heels to Safeway with my two year old in tow? No. But they look great in the closet, they make great 'valet parking shoes', when I actually do go to dinner and besides, they look f&cking amazing on my shoe rack.
