A Note From Me

Hi, All! I found out several days ago that I have to leave the country for three days to get our visa situation taken care of, so I won't be able to do any posts until Friday night or Saturday morning. Thanks for reading my blog. Please feel free to leave comments on any of my posts.

Rextremely Thin Watch: Courtney Love

I have a theory about actresses that go on extreme diets and lose a lot of weight. Take Courtney Love for example. Her claim to fame was being married to Kurt Cobain who committed suicide. She was in and out of the news with drugs and then she gained a ton of weight. She blamed some macrobiotic diet. Supposedly, she hit 180 pounds or so. She then went on some detox and cleansing fast and lost 30 pounds. And she's still losing. She wants to be at 125 pounds at 5'10 inches tall. That's 25 pounds less than the recommended 150 for her height (they say the best weight is five pounds for every inch after five feet). If you are 5'4, then you should weigh 120. My guess is that she will keep losing weight until everybody makes it an even bigger issue. She just craves attention. I wonder how this affects her daughter Frances Bean (she's 15) who is obviously not rextremely thin like her mother. Other actresses that did/are doing this: Nicole Richie, Victoria Beckham, Jenna Jameson, and a list of others that I can't think of right now. Please feel free to add any one else you can think of.

That's just gross!

Fashion Watch: Hayden Panetierre

Advice for Hayden Panetierre: 1) Stop wearing so much make-up; 2) You're 18 not 35 so dress like one!

Cute white dress!

Fashion Watch: Simpson Sisters

Ashlee Simpson is partially holding onto her punk rock look but is also trying to be chic at the same time. It's just not working. Black with dark denim usually doesn't go well together.

Jessica Simpson, on the other hand makes a gingham shirt (untucked no less) and jeans look glam!

Fashion Watch: Britney Spears

I'm not sure what Britney Spears is wearing in this picture, but she apparently stopped to use the bathroom at Quiznos. Is it my imagination or does she look thinner? I hope she loses weight the right way instead of "starving herself" (she said this after watching her VMA performance).

She looks like a trainwreck here.

Celebrity Weight Obession

Ashanti said she lost eight pounds doing the Master Cleanser diet. Let's see if she can keep it off. Most cleanser diets require a fast (drinking only liquids), so any weight that is lost is mostly water. Once you start eating again, you will gain your weight back.

I don't know why it is so good to see celebrities lose their pregnancy slowly. I'm glad to see that Bridget Moynahan still has some ways to go.

Is Ellen Pompeo hiding her "rextremely thin" body under a baggy T-shirt and sweat pants?

There were rumors that Kirstie Alley is back to 200 pounds, but she looks like she did when she wore a bikini on Oprah. Her daughter looks really excited to be photographed.

"Rextremely thin" Renee Zellweger leaving a gym after a workout. Check out her chicken legs!

My Fave In Jeans

Shiri Appleby looks casual and comfortable and holding hands to new boyfriend Zach Braff. I don't know what these girls see in him.

Calista Flockhart, the original "rextremely thin" actress out and about wearing mommy jeans?

Yes, I realize that Sienna Miller is on the set of her new movie Hippie, Hippie Shake or something like that. She's wearing what they called it then bell bottoms and now we call it wide-legged jeans.

Tara Reid covered up and sober?

My Fave: Vanessa Hudgens adds a splash of style with the scarf trend. I'm totally liking it.

Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale out and about. Not feeling the 50s scarf tied around Vanessa's necik. I want that side purse!

Does Alyssa Milano have two jackets on? Is it that cold in Spain?

Ashley Olsen wearing ugly rubber boots and it ain't even raining.

Beyonce looks a lot bigger here to me.

Cute dark denim on Heidi Klum. She continues to whittle down.

It's so weird to see people bundled up in September. Jamie-Lyn Sigler looks like she could also use a hot cup of chocolate.

Fashion Watch: Tara Reid

I am impressed that Tara Reid lost weight and has kept it off, but why is her hair poofed up like a 50s mom? Will she never learn to wear a bra especially with a see through dress?

I feel like this dress is too tight for her.

Of the three dresses, I guess this is one is the best one but she should really invest in a bra that can balance out her boobs. They always look a little lopsided.
