Sounds like a great love story, right? According to FOX News, it is a story that may never happen. They report that Mila’s hectic work schedule could interfere with the November 18th Marine Corp Ball date.
Mila famously said “yes” to a YouTube video invite from Sgt. Scott Moore when asked about it on Fox411 last weekend. Mila and Friends With Benefits co-star Justin Timberlake were promoting the new movie when Mila was questioned about the strange proposal. Without even seeing the YouTube video, and without checking her work schedule, she said yes! After some coaxing from Timberlake, of course. Now, reports that Mila might not make it are drawing “Awwws” from all who have heard of this story. Check out the marine’s YouTube proposal!
Side note: CB’s Limited has offered to give Mila a gown for the ball! We are awaiting a response from her manager! We’ll keep you posted!

Premiering April 29th, Disney’s Prom promises a good time for the whole family. Aimee Teegarden (of Friday Night Lights fame) stars in this comedic portrayal of teens in the peak of high school excitement…the prom.
Movie Insider gives this run-down on the film:
Several intersecting stories unfold at one high school as the big dance approaches; Prom portrays the precarious passage from high school to independence as some relationships unravel and others ignite. For Nova Prescott (Aimee Teegarden), it’s a battle of wills as she finds herself drawn to the guy (Thomas McDonell) who gets in the way of her perfect prom. Fellow seniors Mei (Yin Chang) and Tyler (De’Vaughn Nixon) harbor secrets, while others face all the insecurity and anticipation that surrounds one of high school’s most seminal events.

A shirtless Chris Brown stormed off the set of ABC’s Good Morning America after an interview with Robin Roberts. Apparently the topic of Rihanna is still a touchy one for the singer.
Roberts inquired of the 2009 incident and this was Brown’s reply:
“It’s not really a big deal to me now, as far as that situation. I think I’m past that in my life. Today’s the album day, so that’s what I’m focused on.”
When pressed again, Brown seemed aggravated and responded:
“This album is what I want people to hear and people to really get into, so definitely this album is what I want them to talk about and not stuff that happened two years ago.”
Sources say Brown returned to his dressing room after he performed a song and proceeded to throw things. Security was called and Brown then ripped his shirt off and left the studio, steaming. He was slated to perform two songs on GMA, but after he threw his HULK-like fit, the second performance did not take place.

Can you imagine a keg instead of a water cooler at your workplace? Shot glasses instead of coffee mugs? In honor of St. Patrick’s Day (another awesome holiday that gives us an excuse to consume alcohol), I bring up an article first reported by NBC. It seems that the new workplace trend is to work while tipsy.
The start-up company Yelp, headquarted in San Franciso, is equipped with a keg refrigerator and supplies its employees with an endless supply of beer, reports Bloomberg’s Businessweek. But there is a stipulation…each employee must sign in using an IPAD app. It records each ounce they consume. Who would have thought there’s an app for THAT!
“If you’re at the top of the leader board consistently, I don’t know if that’s a place that you’d want to be,” said Eric Singley, director of Yelp consumer and mobile products. “Luckily, that hasn’t really even been an issue.”
Share this with your boss, no need to thank me.

An article appeared in People Magazine recently that focused on the princess-to-be, Kate Middleton. The article is titled, Kate Middleton Recycles From Her Own Closet. Read it and share in my dismay…
Whether it’s for her own official engagement pictures or just another social event in her busy schedule, Kate Middleton doesn’t have to look far when it comes to finding the perfect outfit–she simply recycles something from her oh-so-chic closet, adds some new accessories and voila…a new princess-to-be look is born. It’s a very royal trend (Princess Diana was known to mix and match old and new pieces and Princess Anne is quite famous for her frugal approach to fashion), so it’s entirely fitting that Middleton, who will marry into the British royal family in just a few months, should adopt the recession-friendly trend herself. And we have to say, the 29-year-old does it very well. Accompanying her fiancé, Prince William, to a friend’s wedding in the UK on Saturday, she recycled one of her much-loved ISSA black dresses (from the label’s Spring/Summer 2007 collection no less), which she had previously worn to Prince William’s cousin, Peter Phillips’ wedding in 2008. Worn underneath a current season velvet dress coat from independent London label Libélula, the outfit was topped off with a structural feathered beret and a glowing smile. A smart choice, in more ways than one. –Monique Jessen
Did you get that? Celebrities and royalty are not suppose to wear the same piece of clothing twice. People calls it “recycling”, the same thing you and I do regularly…pairing a tank with a blazer and then wearing that same tank a week later under a sweater.The article “calls her out”, so to speak, for wearing a particular ISSA black dress to two different weddings. Oh, for shame!
People goes on to say that past princesses have committed similar crimes. Princess Diana was known for mixing and matching old and new pieces (It’s called a wardrobe…right?) while Princess Anne is apparently famous for her frugal approach to fashion (She repeated an outfit three or four times no doubt).
Although the article praises Middleton for her smarts during a time of recession, I find it ridiculous to even view this “frugal behavior” as extraordinary. I am sure that there are multi-millionaires that may never have to wear the same outfit more than once, and I envy them, really. But what sense does it make to fall in love with a piece of clothing in a store or on the runway and then buy it, only to wear it once?
I guess if recycling is not a typical practice among the rich and famous then I relish the fact that I have something in common with the stunning princess bride-to-be, we recycle!

Lady GaGa pulled out all the stops at Sunday’s VMA awards. She began, tame enough, with a renaissance dress complete with military entourage. To collect her award fro “Best Pop Video”, Gaga changed into a black flowing gown.
Both dresses were designed by the late fashion designer Alexander McQueen.
She saved the best for last. A dress made entirely of raw red meat, that’s right…RAW meat! The outfit was topped off with a slab of bloody meat laying on her head. A bikini version of the gown was unveiled on Japanese Vogue, prompting an instant uproar from animal rights activists. GaGa wore the controversial piece despite the furor, Surprise!

The gorgeous Sofia Vergara claims to have made good on a promise to run nude down Sunset Boulevard after she and her Modern Family co-stars accepted the Emmy for best hit comedy. No one saw the streaker, but fellow Modern Family star, Julie Bowen told People Magazine, “When we went back to the press room, she had made a left turn and we all made a right turn, so for about twenty minutes, she was missing.” When she returned, Bowen says Vergara replied that she “went to run nude down Sunset Boulevard. No one was there. So I did it. It’s over…no one said I had to do it at a certain time.”
The stunning gold gown she apparently stripped out of was a ravishing floor-length dress by Carolina Herrera. She easily took home the best dressed award as well as the Emmy.

The Tony Awards red carpet was invaded by Hollywood celebrities last night. Stars like Scarlett Johansson, Naomi Watts, and Will and Jada Smith made the best-dressed list. Catherine Zeta-Jones seemed to blow them all away in her light blue Versace gown. She also blew us all away when she accepted her award for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical and thanked hubby Michael Douglas by saying:
“See that man over there? He’s a movie star, and I get to sleep with him every night.”

Tennis Pro Venus Williams showed up to the French Open in a black lace outfit, trimmed in red. She easily chalked up a victory, beating Patty Schnyder with consecutive 6-3 wins. It is the outfit that takes precedence, not the tennis playing.
