Rihanna Bites Janelle Monae’s Style At Met Costume Gala

rihannajanelle_monae Rihanna makes her first red carpet appearance since her alleged beat-down and break-up from singer Chris Brown at the Costume Institute Gala at New York's Metropolitan Musuem. The Barbadian singer ditched her usual girly-glam dresses and the recent bondage look and wore a black puff-sleeved pant suit by Dolce & Gabbana. While the menswear-inspired outfit looked very empowering, we just can't help thinking that she totally bit Janelle Monae's style. For the record, Grace Jones is Blindie's original androgynous sister! grace_jones PHOTO CREDIT: AP (Rihanna)

Gossip Girl Watch: Jesus Takes The Wheel As Poppy Plots A Ponzi Scheme

leighton_meester_chace_crawford The Gossip Girl gang is all here, Blair, Chuck, Nate, Serena even Georgina, and they're scheming and plotting together like true Upper East Side friends. But can born-again Georgina take the wheel back from Jesus and steer everyone out of a financial mess?! Here are Blindie's TOP 10 moments from Gossip Girl's "Wrath of Con" episode:

  1. Poppy Lifton (Tamara Feldman) is using Gabriel (Armie Hammer) to run a Ponzi scheme on Serena's friends and even Rufus Humphrey (Matthew Settle) gets caught up in it. Because Ponzi schemes aren't just for Jewish people anymore.
  2. We love how Lily Bass (Kelly Rutherford) would rather pay everyone off and prevent scandal and a ruined social image rather than go after the real crooks.
  3. Rufus Humphrey plans to surprise Lily with dinner and pop the question so he wheels the food to her ritzy Manhattan apartment in a rickety wagon! Hasn't he ever heard of delivery?! Take that old lady wagon back to Brooklyn!
  4. Last season everyone wanted Serena (Blake Lively), now Blair (Leighton Meester) is in high demand as Nate (Chace Crawford) and Chuck (Ed Westwick) fight for her attention.
  5. Can Dan Humphrey's (Penn Bagdley) big mouth ruin anymore plots?!
  6. Blair asks Chuck to declare his love for her or let her go. Of course Chuck does not let his guard down and he lets Blair go, then admits to Serena that it's because he loves her and can't make her happy.
  7. Georgina's cell phone ring is a "praise the Lord" song.
  8. The big plan to bust Poppy goes south as Serena is hauled away by the cops and Poppy trots off with Georgina's bible money.
  9. We lost count of the Jesus mentions after the first half hour, but here are tour faves: "I gave up my old ways when I let Jesus take the wheel," Georgina tells Blair; "I will never forgive you for what you did and neither will Jesus," Blair screams at Georgina; "You can tell Jesus that the bitch is back," as Georgina finishes the job that Chuck and Blair couldn't and goes after Poppy.
  10. How good and kind of cheesy was the teaser for the next episode featuring flashbacks of Lily and Rufus in their teen years and a performance by No Doubt! Yes, it's a pilot for that Gossip Girl spin-off about Lily's wild years.

Oprah Signs Jenny McCarthy To Multi-Year TV Deal With Harpo Productions

oprah_winfreyjenny_mccarthy Oprah Winfrey is bestowing former Playboy model turned autistism activist Jenny McCarthy with a production deal that could launch McCarthy as the next big media personality since well, Oprah's other big media personality Dr. Phil. McCarthy has already started a blog on Oprah.com called "Give It Up Before Summer" on which she expounds about PMSing and her "awesome husband" Jim Carrey, even thought the two aren't officially married. According to The Hollywood Reporter the multi-platform, multi-year deal includes a syndicated talk show that McCarthy would host. Blindie hopes McCarthy's talk show fares than her ill-fated 1997 variety show "The Jenny McCarthy Show," because we've liked her ever since she was the man-handling co-host on MTV's "Singled out" PHOTO CREDIT: AP
