Victoria Beckham Is A Beast To Work For, Says Victoria Beckham


Yep, so she says! Victoria Beckham, aka Posh, has been working the fashion industry since she took a break from The Spice Girls and yes people were a bit skeptical about how she would make her mark in the industry. But, she can definitely say that she did make it.

She was quoted as saying, “There’s a lot of people here, I hope I’m going to say something good now. I’ve always wanted to be involved in the fashion industry, I felt it in my tummy. At the beginning there was a lot of raised eyebrows, or those that could raise their eyebrows. When I started, I did one-on-one presentations, I’d talk for hours to people who didn’t even speak English. I think a lot of people probably thought, ‘Shut up, stop going on about a bloody grosgrain waistband!’”

According to our friends at Girls Talkin Smack, Beckham even admits she is kind of a witchy woman.

See what Vicky B. has to say about how she handles her bidnass here.

“Madonna’s Fashion Evolution” Pop Up Exhibit Brought Out Hard Core Celeb Madge Fans


Madonna, Material Girl and Macy’s offered consumers the ultimate insider experience at a thrilling one day pop-up fashion exhibit, “Madonna’s Fashion Evolution” at Macy’s. Arianne Phillips, Madonna’s longtime collaborator, who styled and helped to curate the exhibit, was on hand to.

Madonna handpicked her favorite costumes from a vast archive of tour costumes and personal collection for the exhibit, hosted by Material Girl. On display for the first time together, as they have never been seen before, were items including Madonna’s famous Jean Paul Gaultier cone bra corsets from her Blond Ambition Tour, her Re-Invention Tour ensemble by Christian Lacroix, her “Like A Virgin” wedding dress she wore to the MTV VMA’s in 1984, the Bob Mackie evening gown she wore to the 1991 Oscars as Michael Jackson’s guest, the black leather motorcycle jacket by Montgomery Ward and t-shirt from her “Papa Don’t Preach” video, the black satin corset with conical cups from her “Who’s That Girl” Tour, her “Boy Toy” jacket designed by Vivienne Westwood and the late Keith Haring, and more.



“The pop-up exhibit at Macy’s perfectly exemplifies the inspiration and spirit of the Material Girl line and will give my fans a great opportunity to see the evolution of my style over the years,” commented Madonna.

About the “Boy Toy” ensemble on display, Arianne Phillips commented, “An amazing pop culture time capsule, this unique and special ensemble features visionary Keith Haring’s artwork. This embodies the energy and expression/explosion of the street and club culture that Madonna was born out of.”


The exhibit took place surrounded by the fashion-forward Material Girl line that Madonna created exclusively for Macy’s with her daughter, Lola. Consumers saw firsthand how Madonna’s fashions, from her Jean Paul Gaultier cone corsets, to her “Like A Virgin Wedding” dress, and more, have influenced fashion and the brand. Material Girl is all about mixing and matching pieces you like to create your own unique look. The line features items like corset dresses, leather jackets, lace, and feminine / masculine detailing, which bear the stamp of the original Material Girl, Madonna.

Mike Tyson Ex Girlfriend Ate His Pigeon Pet


If you know anything about Mike Tyson (other than his penchant for ear nibbling), you know that he is cray cray about his pigeons. They are his love. They are part of his soul. So when someone messes with one of his beloved, you better guard your earlobes!

During a radio interview on Thursday, the boxer turned Broadway star revealed that one of his ex-girlfriends once took one of his birds and cooked it up! After she went ahead and cooked it to her liking, she offered Mr. Mike a bite.

Mike revealed, “I was dating this young lady and she said, ‘I don’t know why you’re flying those damn birds, you should be eating them. She happened to grab one and she cooked one and proceeded to eat it. And I just couldn’t do it… It just wasn’t the right thing to do… It wasn’t cool. But it was her house and we were living off of her dime, so she could do (it).”

Yeah so obviously she was a done deal after that. Mike called his relationship with that chick real quick.

Don’t mess with Mike and his pigeons, yo!

Foxy 71-Year-Old Martha Stewart Was A Model And Find Out Who Her Role Model Is


Parade FINALLY did an article on one of my favorite divas ever. Yes, she is right up there with my girl MC. Jeepers, Marta!

Martha Stewart is looking good and feeling great about aging well, she tells Dotson Rader in Sunday’s PARADE. As the domestic diva (aka DD) writes in her new book, Living the Good Long Life: A Practical Guide to Caring for Yourself and Others: “When you’re through changing, you’re through.” YES! Another fab book from double d.

Some highlights from the surprisingly candid, wide-ranging conversation:


“It’s all about surviving in this extraordinary world—physically, mentally, emotionally. I wrote it because nobody is paying attention to the silver tsunami of baby boomers who are now turning 65. My book focuses on what you can do for othersand what you can do for yourself in terms of aging gracefully.”


“Just for money. But it was fun.”


“No, I actually didn’t. I knew I was good enough to get $60 an hour, which was the going rate at the time. I wasn’t the cover girl. I wasn’t Suzy Parker. But I should’ve been. Maybe if I had had somebody encouraging me…But then I got married when I was 19.”


“We try something new and we get slapped with a lawsuit….We like designing and making products. We’re good at it. We want to have our own stores. That’s how the J.C. Penney thing came around; it was an opportunity to have 700 storeswithin J.C. Penney. What I want to do now is build freestanding stores.”


“I don’t consider that a mistake. It was a normal thing that people do every day. They sell stock. What was a mistake was the way it was handled. I’m not supposed to say this, but I was not guilty of any crime. I became a target because I was a strong and a rich woman who had been very successful.”


“I admire Hillary greatly, her inner strength. She did a phenomenal job as secretary of state. The best thing of all was the way she treated her husband.”


“Well, I wouldn’t have. Hillary was married to the president. Walking out on him when he’s stupid would’ve shown weakness and self-centeredness. She saved him, her self-respect, and her daughter. She didn’t cut the family asunder. As a result, she gained his respect forever.”


“Of course. I have my title and everything. I’ve led such an interesting and complicated life that it’s getting to be time to record it.”

Love.this.bitch. That is all.

Victoria’s Secret Responds To Kylie Bisutti’s Trashy Claims


Model Kylie Bisutti has been in the public eye as of late trashing Victoria’s Secret for making her feel like a piece of meat when she worked for the lingerie giant as an Angel (as she says). She went from modeling panties and push up bras to becoming a devout Christian with a “tell-all” book that she uses to talk about her experience as a lingerie model.

She was quoted as saying, “I was being paid to strip down and pose provocatively to titillate men. It wasn’t about modeling clothes anymore; I felt like a piece of meat.”

In her book she also talks about her issues with eating disorders and being insecure. She went onto add, “The curves that made me ‘too fat’ by runway standards were perfect for Victoria’s Secret. And even though I was only 19, a newlywed and growing in my relationship to God, I didn’t think twice about strutting my stuff in skimpy bikinis and underwear in the TV contest.”

She claims she also beat out 10,000 other models in the 2009 Victoria’s Secret Angel Search competition, which landed her a one-time walk in the 2009 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

“During the Angel competition, I was encouraged to play down my marriage to Mike, because I was supposed to be flirting with everyone all the time. A lot of models don’t talk about their relationships unless they’re married to a celebrity, like Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom, which is more of a draw to the brand,” she said.

After these claims, Victoria’s Secret is firing back!

Victoria’s Secret told Celebrity VIP Lounge in a statement, “Ms. Bisutti has made numerous fabrications and misstatements of fact regarding her brief association with Victoria’s Secret. In 2009, Ms. Bisutti won an online amateur modeling competition and hasn’t worked for us since that year. The prize for the winning contestant was the unique opportunity to a one-time walk in the 2009 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Ms. Bisutti also participated in a swim photo shoot in 2009. That was the extent of Ms. Bisutti’s involvement with Victoria’s Secret. She was never a Victoria’s Secret “Angel” as defined by the terms of our Angel model contract. And contrary to Ms. Bisutti’s claims, she was never offered any subsequent modeling contracts or opportunities with Victoria’s Secret despite her multiple appeals for further work. She has repeatedly fabricated her work experience with Victoria’s Secret – including a relationship that simply did not exist.”

Oh snap! So who do you believe? Is Ms. Bisutti just trying to use this moment as her 15 minutes or is Victoria’s Secret exactly what she says they are?

Justin Bieber and Selena Are Together: He Gets Another Tattoo


Well, apparently Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez ARE back together, if not only for the nookie (because if the Biebs is anything like Fred Durst, we all can take that cookie and stick it you know where), for the company.

In a photo posted via Instagram, the Biebs made it known to the world that he and Selena are at least hittin’ it. The photo shows Justin shirtless with Selena hugging him from behind along with the following telling caption: “‘You’ve been makin music for too long babe come cuddle’ — her.”

He’s got it bad for her (and probably other chicks too) and for now, he’s loving Selena’s company (and well, quite frankly…she was his first).

In an effort to show his undying love for the singer slash actress, the Biebs is rumored to have gotten some permanent ink of his ex (?) girlfriend on his skin. According to our friends at Bohomoth, Bieber got a tat of Selena rocking an awkward big bosom-ed cleavage.

What do you think of these two back together?

Check out Bieber’s new tattoo of Selena here.

Who Will Be The Next Face of Bingo?


Celebrity endorsements are a tried and tested way to stand out from the crowd, and a great way for celebs to boost their profile. Celebs have put their face and their name on everything from designer perfume to condoms and marker pens, so it’s unsurprising that online bingo sites have jumped on the idea of using the star power of their chosen celebrities to persuade us to play their games.

Foxy Bingo has had a string of celebrity endorsements since they first appointed Katie Price in 2006. The ex-glamour model may be a controversial figure, but she has proved herself to be a savvy businesswoman – which may be why Foxy Bingo chose her as the face of the brand. Stacey Solomon was their next choice, winning ‘Foxy’s Celebrity Mum of the Year’ – although this was quickly pulled after photographs showing her smoking whilst pregnant were published. The TOWIE lot have been known to head to the bingo for a night out with the girls, so it was unsurprising that Foxy Bingo looked to the glam girls of ITV’s hit reality show as a replacement; both Lauren Goodger and Lucy Mecklenburgh have been involved with the brand’s advertising campaigns.

After years of serving at the Queen Vic, ex-Eastenders actress Barbara Windsor finally stepped into a royal role; in 2010 she was hired by Jackpot Joy as the ‘Queen of Bingo’. The appointment raised a few eyebrows, but has been a successful partnership for both Babs and Jackpot Joy. A slightly stranger pairing occurred when Vic Reeves was chosen as the frontman for 888Ladies, but the advert in which Vic dresses in full make-up and women’s clothes in order to play on 888Ladies is definitely a memorable one!

Gala Bingo, however, has had the most star-studded endorsements of the bunch – Sharon Osbourne has featured in a one-off advert for the brand and after the site’s revamp, Peter Andre became the face of their new look; starring in a variety of videos explaining the new features and giving users a chance to meet him in an exclusive competition. Not only that, but David Hasselhoff has his own Hoff-themed bingo game on the site – surely one to top if any other bingo sites want to consider their own celebrity endorsements.

So who’s next in line to be the face of bingo? Our money is on Tulisa or Michelle Heaton – but we’d absolutely love to see Victoria Beckham or Kate Middleton confess a secret love for bingo! What do you think?

Nicki Minaj, The Other Woman?


Nicki Minaj (hopefully) will now be moving into movies and away from music and possibly American Idol as she delves into the movie industry (or at least that is what I’m hoping). Actually what I am really hoping is she joins the circus but that’s a whole ‘nother blog post.

Instead, what we do know is that Miss Minaj has joined the cast of “The Other Woman”, which is a Cassavetes-directed comedy starring Cameron Diaz. Diaz plays the a woman who finds out that she is “the other woman” in an affair. Minaj teams up with the wife (Leslie Mann) to get revenge on the cheater, being played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

Minaj’s character?

Well, she will will play Diaz’s opinionated assistant at a law firm, a woman on her own third marriage.

“The Other Woman” begins shooting in late spring/early summer in New York. So you can you bet your booty you will be seeing fun little twitter photos of Minaj while she strolls around on set.

You better be ready for those googly eyes to hit your screen! Minaj is ready for that Oscar, yo.
