Though summer’s technically not over, I think it’s time to take a look back at everything that happened these summer months. There was a LOT. What do you think was the most shocking? The most WTF? The best fashion moment? Let’s vote!
In case you need a refresher, here are some links to these stories: (more…)

In any case, here’s the trailer for the new season of the show. Are we looking forward to it? Probably not – I know I’m not, but I’ll end up recapping it on another site so I know I’m in for the long haul.

Fresh off her ocean rescue, Kelly Rowland has released the music video for ‘Dirty Laundry’, which is still a damn good song and probably the best thing she’s done, from an artistic standpoint. In case you forgot (or never heard about it to begin with), the track – the first taken from her new album Talk a Good Game - deals with Kelly’s experience with domestic violence, her troubled relationship with and jealousy towards Beyoncé and more. It’s just good.
The video is nothing all that special – mostly Kelly singing while lying in a pool of water, standing under a shower or sitting on a chair while occasional silhouettes appear in the distance. Still, it seems like the only way this video could pan out, considering the subject matter of the song itself. Still gets a thumbs up from me.

Kelly Rowland, former Destiny’s Child singer and new X-Factor judge, got into a bit of a nightmare when she and her friends were stranded in the ocean for 12 hours. Not quite an Open Water scenario as they were on a boat, but scary nonetheless. Apparently everything was fine until a storm started and their position couldn’t be located. More from E Online:
The group originally set sail for a day of whale watching, when their vessel became “disoriented in the five-to-six-foot waves and fog that had rolled in,” an employee at TowboatUS Provincetown confirmed to E! News.
“The US Coast Guard was able to triangulate their position” after learning that the group needed help, the employee added.
The former Destiny’s Child singer, her friends and the crew arrived on land at around 10 p.m., after being at sea for 12 hours.
In the end, the entire group was said to be “tired and thankful,” the employee added.
“They just wanted to get off the boat.”
NO KIDDING. Hopefully Rowland has only…smooth sailing from now on. (YEEEEEAAAHH!!!)
Weirdly, Jayne Mansfield (you may know her as Mariska Hargitay‘s mom) was in a similar incident when she, Mickey Hargitay, and a friend were lost after a day of water skiing gone wrong. Stranded in the ocean, they swam to a beach where they were found the next day. You can read the original newspaper article on Google’s magazine archives.

Y’all know I love Kelly Rowland‘s new single ‘Dirty Laundry’ – it’s way better than anything Beyoncé is doing right now, which actually pains me to say. The press made a big to-do over the track because in it, she reveals that she struggled with jealousy when Bey got more successful than her and that she was in an abusive relationship. In a just world, the latter would be the bigger revelation, but it’s showbiz, so of course everyone would rather focus on how catty women can be. (For the record, big ups to Kelly for admitting that she was envious and for getting her shit together enough to maintain their friendship.)
In any case, Kelly performed ‘Dirty Laundry’ in Washington DC over the weekend and broke down in tears on stage in the middle of it. I can imagine it’s cathartic to let out something you’ve kept in for so long, and also to reflect upon something so damaging and life-changing as an abusive relationship that you finally managed to get out of. After all, many women (and men, yes) aren’t so lucky.
Here’s the video of Kelly’s performance below. What do you guys think of the track?

Britney Spears left The X Factor a while ago and we were all wondering who would replace her and by “we all” I mean, honestly no one really. Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato really wanted Lady Gaga. Instead, they got Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio. My, how far we’ve slipped.
I mean, really? Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubino? It could have been worse. We could have gotten Khloe Kardashian.
Sources connected to FOX tell TMZ the pair are in final negotiations to join the show … with only minor details left to be hammered out before they sign on.
We’re told the deals will be done in the next few days, possibly as early as tomorrow.
I can’t remember who Paulina Rubio is. We didn’t even have a category for her on this site. And Kelly Rowland’s biggest news has been her disappearing and reappearing mole. Ms. Rowland was a judge on Britain’s X Factor and I’m guessing the producers and Mr. Cowell enjoyed her presence and was invited back. I don’t get the Paulina Rubio factor (haha pun intended). Is she more popular than I think she is?
Here’s a photo of her from 10 days ago.
She seems fun?
Oh and none for you L.A. Reid.
