Ga Ga: In Honor of 2008 Blindie Lists Favorite Things of the Year

With our freshman year on the web coming to a close, Blindie's compiled a list of our favorite things of 2008: FASHION Favorite Model: It's a TIE! Jourdan Dunn & Chanel Iman have continued to impress us this year with their growing catwalk & cover careers! Best Red Carpet Moment: Rihanna at the BET Awards. We know, gross. BUT one highlight of the ghetto fab awards ceremony was Rihanna showing up in the ruffled yellow sundress by Giambattista Valli..FAB! PEOPLE Best Grown Hunk: Jason Momoa. Granted his face was tragically slashed, but he's having his second baby with Lisa Bonet and we're pretty sure the scar will just make him look more ruggedly gorgeous! Best Growing Hunk: Taylor Lautner. The Twilight star has fans petitioning to get him cast in the sequel New Moon. We're too excited to see this 16-year-old cutie mature into manhood! Favorite Starlet: Rosario Dawson. With two hit flicks (Eagle Eye & Seven Pounds) and a massive get-out-the-vote effort, the New York bred beauty stunned us with her acting chops and her love of Twilight! Best Sisters: Sasha & Malia Obama. These girls are too cute and we're lucky enough to watch them blossom into young women in the White House! Best Couple: Barack & Michelle Obama. The new faces of America have busted the glass ceiling and will continue to show the world the beauty of black love. TV/MOVIES Favorite Reality Show: The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Talk about drama! These five Georgia peaches reminded us what reality TV was supposed be: real, bitchy and explosive! Best Break Out Star: Cast of Twilight. Not since JTT have we gone beserk over teen hotness (and we are grown women!)...this cast (and we're hoping little Taylor too) will be back to give us more blood in New Moon. Favorite Gossip Girl & Guy: Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick: They're the ONLY reason to watch GG. The best TV chemistry we've seen since Mer-Der circa Season 1 of Grey's (when it was good)! MUSIC Best Band: TV on the Radio. With the release of their latest album, Dear Science, TOTR happily reminded us of some our favorite songs of the 80s! Best Single: "Paper Planes" by M.I.A. It was a stoner flick that made it ubiquitous, but this infectious hit made us skip on the streets! Best New Artist: Leona Lewis. This record-breaking Brit helped us through some bad breakups in 2008, with "Bleeding Love" and "Better in Time"! Most Addictive Choreography: "Single Ladies" by Beyonce. From fat gay men to skinny gay men to a little tot named Arianna in a onesie, too many regular people uploaded videos of their best renditions of this addictive hit.

Ga Ga: 90210‘s Jessica Lucas, The CW’s Latest Ambiguous Ethnic Girl

Three weeks ago, Jessica Lucas made her sassy debut on The CW's remake of 90210, where not only did she trade witty banter with the hot lit teacher, but she revealed herself as an undercover cop--and another dose of ethnic ambiguity on primetime TV. Lucas, who is best known for running around New York in that nauseous hit Cloverfield, is reportedly half Pakistani and half black. But like Gossip Girl's Jessica Szohr who came before her, there's no mention of her background on the show, where she plays new transfer student-drug agent Kimberly MacIntyre. While the 23-year-old's resume boasts the best credits a scream queen can have, Blindie hopes this hot dash of sass will stick around West Beverly High--hopefully exploring the undeniable chemistry she has with Ryan Eggold (aka: the Hot Lit Teacher).

90210 2.0 Watch: Dixon’s a ‘Compton Thug,’ Adrianna’s Still Cracked Out & Dylan’s a Phantom

In Tuesday's episode, Brenda (Shannen Doherty) still tries to save her cracked out drama queen, Kellie (Jennie Garth) ditches the hot teacher (Ryan Eggold) for her baby daddy Dylan, and Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) tries to bring her parents back together. Here are Blindie's Top Ten moments: 1. Drama queen Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes) gets an intervention by the school administrators, but instead she turns on Brenda and says she doesn't want to end up like her--a drama school director. 2. Debbie (Lori Loughlin) finally gets some screen time, as she shoots a fashion show for NYLON magazine. 3. Navid (Michael Steger) is back! He warns Dixon (Tristan Wilds) that he doesn't want to be third wheel to him and Silver (Jessica Stroup). He even asks Dixon if he can ask Annie out. 4. Dylan calls Brenda..and she passes the phone to Kelly! "If Dylan wanted to talk to you, why is he calling Brenda?" the hot lit teacher inquires. 5. Scary skinny Silver is asked if she's want to model by an agent who wants to get in her pants. Dixon goes on to punch him out. He calls Dixon a "thug" and a "Compton Kid" and asks his mom "Who's the baby daddy?" 6. Naomi asks her dad's mistress out to dinner only to tell her that her parents are still shacking up. 7. A film producer, who saw Annie in Spring Awakening, invites her to read for her cheerleader slasher film. Later, Adrianna nearly bitch slaps Annie when she suspects that Annie is spying on her for her principal pop! 8. Kellie is jealous..just like the old days! "I guess old habits die hard with you don't they?" an envious Kellie asks Brenda of her going to the fashion show with the lit teacher. 9. Brenda tells the hot lit teacher that he "dodged a bullet" by not dating Kellie, who ends up leaving to visit Dylan. Snap! And then he's all into her at the fashion show and gives her a ride home. 10. Naomi, who's sick over her parents' fake marriage, and Ethan (Dustin Milligan), who wants Annie, who decides to be single, and Ty (Adam Gregory), who wants to bone Annie--all decide to be just friends!

Annie's dad Harry catches her heavily making out with Ty Collins! "The boys here are different than the boys back in Kansas. I should know, I used to be one of them," daddy Harry tells his wife. 3. Naomi's mom bitch slaps her dad! 4. Annie gets the "I may be losing my virginity to this cool boy" talk from her mom. 5. Spring Awakening lead Adrianna is so cracked out that Annie nabs the lead! 6. "Not everyone's a ho-bot like you, Naomi," Silver tells Naomi of advising Annie to do Ty. Silver then awesomely cringes at Ethan piggy-backing Naomi. 7. Ty books him and Annie a room at the Roosevelt Hotel for the show's after-party. She then wears a slut-tastic mini dress for her big night! 8. Annie asks for Dixon's condom! "This is a pretty disturbing moment between us, isn't it?" he asks. She then bumps into Ethan in the hall, where she drops her condom. "The guy is a total player," Ethan tells Annie. "Wouldn't you rather save yourself for someone who cares for you?" 9. Silver kisses Dixon--and they totally make out! "We're gonna take it slow," she demands. "Silver, you're being bossy!" he says. 10. Annie catches the cracked out, post-coital Adrianna in Ty's hotel room. "He didn't tell you to meet him here too, did he?" Adrianna asks. She's the male version of Gossip Girl's Chuck--she's totally scheming!

Emmy Awards Watch: Top 10 Moments From TV’s Biggest Night

Our Vanessa Williams may not have won her much-deserved Emmy, but Queen of TV Oprah Winfrey opened the show! Here are Blindie's Top 10 moments from the 60th Annual Emmy Awards: 1. During their opening, cohost Howie Mandel comments on their lack of material: "We are on Sarah Palin's bridge to nowhere." 2. Heidi Klum joining the boys club in her tuxedo. "I thought you would be wearing a lot less," Tom Bergeron says to Klum before assisting her (with William Shatner!) in stripping Heidi down to some glittered hot shorts. 3. "Dude, Howie wouldn't even shake my hand!" Klum says, referencing Mandel's OCD. 4. "How dare you! I've gained weight for a role," Amy Poehler tells Tina Fey who asks her when she's due to give birth. 5. "What if I just kept talking for 12 minutes...That was the opening!" Emmy winner Jeremy Piven says during his acceptance speech of the hosts' lackluster opening. It drew an overwhelming applause from the audience. 6.

Josh Groban singing The Jeffersons theme song and rapping The Fresh Prince theme song complete with his take on the robot! We hope he got paid tons of money to play a lounge singer. 8. Lauren Conrad channeling her inner DIVA when she told Bones actor David Boreanaz that he was saying her line. The MTV star wanted to make sure she presented Tina Fey with her Emmy win. 9. Stephen Colbert compares Senator John McCain to a wrinkled prune! 10. The amazing Kathy Griffin demanding A-Listers to get out of their seats and stand for comedic legend Don Rickles. She then compares their hot pairing to that of McCain & Sarah Palin. PHOTOS: Reuters

Tyra Banks Celebrates Black Models & Italian Vogue Breakthrough On Talk Show

To celebrate Italian Vogue’s success, Tyra Banks is shooting a tribute episode of her namesake (Emmy-winning!) talk show Tuesday in New York, with Blindie’s favorite supermodel-in-training Chanel Iman, the world's first black supermodel Beverly Johnson, Veronica Webb, Noemie Lenoir and many others. The model-mogul, who came on the modeling scene after Naomi Campbell’s rise to fashion fame and became the first black model to appear on the iconic Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, tranformed a Manhattan street into an asphalt runway. "A lot of the times the fashion world doesn't give a lot of attention to American Black girls from urban areas," Banks, who has been an advocate for diversity in the fashion industry, told Ebony last year. "I don't mean to pat my own back, but America's Next Top Model pulled down the curtain to this world that people thought they couldn't be a part of. Now every girl is like, 'I want to be a model.' I feel like the world is more accessible, but by no means is it less prestigious." The episode is scheduled to air in the beginning of Season 4 on September 11th. PHOTO: AP
