A Fabulous Mind


If scientists ever found a way to look inside my dreams, this is what they would see.

I'm sorry for not being around these past few days. It was the busiest week of my life. Now, I'm going out of town for a week.

Stay fabulous while I'm gone. Don't forget me! XOXO

Good Looking Man About Town

As most of you know, my best friend Jonny has been in town for the past two weeks. It has definitely made my summer a lot brighter!

Jonny, who is an actor and singer in New York City, has decided to pursue a career in modeling as well. A modeling agency has already expressed interest in him!

So, Jonny and I recently went around town for a a fun little photo shoot, to help him practice. I took all these photos and then edited them. Actually, the only photo which has not been touched is the second photo, because I thought it turned out quite striking on its own.

Here are the results:

Which photo is your favorite?

WTF Celebrity Couples

You think you know all the celebrity couples, don't you? Angelina & Brad. Jennifer & Ben. Gwyneth & Chris. And the list goes on.

But today, I'm going to introduce you to some celebrity couples you might not have realized existed. And they are mostly couples that seem...mismatched in a way.

They might make you scratch your head and say, "wait, she dated him?!"


Ashton Kutcher and January Jones (1998-2001)

Long before the success of Mad Men, January Jones was just another 20-something girl desperate to make a name for herself in Hollywood. But her famous television actor boyfriend, Ashton, was not her biggest fan.

 "He was not supportive of my acting," Jones told GQ in 2009. "He was like, 'I don't think you're going to be good at this.' So, fuck you!"

Strangely enough, last year there was a huge rumor in Hollywood that January Jones was the reason for the Ashton/Demi split. A popular, and mostly reliable, gossip column insinuated that Ashton was the father of January's son, and Demi was less than pleased by the news.

Matt Damon and Winona Ryder (1997-2000)

The two were introduced in 1997 by mutual friend, Gwyneth Paltrow. It was love at first sight. But they didn't make their romance public until a year later, at an Oscar party.

Despite the break-up, the two remain on pretty good terms right now. They have nothing but nice things to say about each other in interviews.

But the media blitz while he was with Winona may have been the reason Matt chose to marry an obscure bartender several years later. The action star is known for living a modest life.

P.Diddy and Sienna Miller (2007)

Five years ago, the dainty British beauty and the American rap mogul raised eyebrows when they were spotted frolicking on exotic vacations together and sailing the seas in Diddy's jaw-dropping yacht.

Despite protest on both sides, photos spoke louder than words. Photos of them cuddling together during wee hours of the morning outside hotels were plastered all over supermarket tabloids.

But, they must have parted amicably because a year later, Diddy told Vogue he thought Sienna was one of the most stylish and poised women in the world.

Michael Jackson and Brooke Shields (1991-1993)

This unlikely duo became friends in the early 1980s, after meeting at an Academy Awards ceremony. But they didn't begin dating until a decade later. Michael actually asked Brooke to marry him, but when she declined, they simply remained close friends until his death.

In 2001, Michael revealed in an interview how he felt meeting Brooke in the early 1980s: "That was one of the loves of my life. I think she loved me as much as I loved her, you know? We dated a lot. We, we went out a lot. Her pictures were all over my wall, my mirror, everything...we exchanged numbers and I was up all night, singing, spinning around my room, just so happy. It was great."

Justin Timberlake and Fergie (1998)

In interviews, Fergie confesses the 1990s were a whirlwind of sex and drugs and pop music. In 1996, she was a member of the girl band, Wild Orchid, which opened for 'N Sync. The future pop star had a brief fling with an underage Justin.

 "It wasn't a long-term serious relationship, so there's no bad blood," says Fergie to Australia's Courier Mail. "He was 16 and I was 23...It was before he got real heavy with Britney."

So, do any of these past romances surprise you? Which one shocked you the most?

I Think We're Alone Now

I'm sorry for disappearing off the face of the planet for the past week.

I've been swamped with work, plus my best friend Jonny is in town, so I've been spending most of my free time with him.

In between attending city council meetings, writing stories, and sipping cocktails with my bestie, I managed to sneak in a short, very entertaining documentary, which was suggested to me by my blog friend, Jillian.

This jaw-dropping documentary, I Think We're Alone Now, focuses on two crazy ass men who are in love with Tiffany.

Yes, Tiffany. The teen pop princess from the late 1980s.

Even though her star has faded in the music world, the suffocating, mind-whirling love these men share for her hasn't waned a bit since 1988.

There is Jeff, a 57-year-old autistic man who has been charged with stalking Tiffany numerous times. He's shown up at every single concert and appearance she has given in the past 24 years. He has been arrested for trespassing at her home and also for brandishing a sword near the pop star.

The other crazy ass stalker is Kelly, a intersexual (hermaphrodite) who is practically homeless, but holds on to his passion for Tiffany like a light in the dark. The walls of his dilapidated apartment are adorned with Tiffany photos and song lyrics.

I think what creeps me out the most is that both of these grown men genuinely believe Tiffany has a special connection with them.

Jeff says, despite the numerous restraining orders the singer has put on him, he is Tiffany's closest and dearest friend. He said they share a bond no one else in the world will ever have. He said Tiffany calls him up at night, just to tell him that she considers him the most important person in her life.

Kelly, on the other hand, is madly in love with Tiffany. When the aging pop star got married a few years ago, Kelly's world came crashing down. Kelly can't even talk about Tiffany's husband without shaking in fury. The stalker believes his destiny is to be with Tiffany romantically one day. Kelly is frustrated nobody else can see it.

Both men have met Tiffany. And while she was nothing but super sweet with them, you could tell Tiffany was completely freaked out. She's known Jeff her entire adult life (the guy has stalked her since she was 16 for god's sake). Meeting Kelly for the first time, after a concert, was clearly a strange moment for the middle-aged mom.

Despite their obvious psychoticness, the documentary shows a vulnerable, and almost innocent side to these men. They're both so eerily interesting and their lives are so much more than obsessed fans.

I highly recommend this documentary.
