No, I’m Not Done Talking About How Attractive Christina Hendricks Is

These are pictures of Christina Hendricks promoting whiskey and also promoting lust.  It’s Friday, so how about we all just settle in on this lovely afternoon, sip on a nice glass of fine whiskey, and let Christina’s beauty take us on a magical, spiritual journey to the weekend.  Sound good?  All right, let the bliss begin.

Jessica Simpson’s Dad and I Don’t Approve of Jessica Simpson’s Fiance

And believe you me, we’ve had plenty of long chats with Jess to try and convince her to change her mind, but it just doesn’t look like it’s working.  Jessica is going to go ahead and marry shady Eric Johnson, no matter what her father and I think. Honestly, kids these days.

Since Jessica’s dad Joe is such a sweetheart, he went ahead and told In Touch how we feel:

Wedding dress shopping? Check. Rings? Check. Location? Check. Seal of approval from the father of the bride? Not so much. Though Joe Simpson was intially a fan of Jessica Simpson’s fiance, Eric Johnson, the overprotective dad is now singing a different tune. It seems Eric’s unemployed status — the former pro-football player was in grad school for business before dropping out after meeting Jess — is causing some major concern: “It bothers Joe that Jessica is paying for everything and that Eric really doesn’t have a job,” reveals a friend. So much so that Joe is pressuring Jess to call off the wedding completely! “Joe thinks Jessica can do much better and that’s the bottom line,” adds the payl. Of course, the rift between the two most important men in Jessica’s life is making her upset and feel like she’s trapped in the middle. “Jessica is a daddy’s girl, so it bothers her that Joe no longer approves of Eric,” the friend explains. “She’s really torn.”

For real though, I don’t like this Eric character.  Like, for once, I don’t want to break something or vomit after a Joe Simpson statement, which I think speaks volumes all on its own.

Love It or Leave It: Sandra Bullock Does the Short Hair Thing

Lookie, it’s Sandra Bullock on the set of a new movie!

Sandra dons a short, brunette wig, and in my opinion TOTALLY ROCKS IT. She’s one of those super lucky women who can pretty much do anything to her hair, face, or clothing, and she still looks amazing no matter how generally putrid it is.

I cut off all of my hair about eighteen months ago. Like, seriously. All of it. I had long, flowing hair halfway down my back and decided to go ape-shit and hack it all off. I ended up cutting off about nineteen inches in total and wound up with two-inch-long hair. I really loved it, and I thought it looked pretty OK on me, but the growing out process? WAS A BITCH. I looked like an utter FOOL for the better part of nine months until I could get some semblance of an actual hairstyle, and I’d often think of how lucky some actresses were that they could look totally awesome in pretty much anything.

Sandra could definitely pull off the weird in-between, though – I have positively no doubts.

Love it? Leave it?
