Frank Micelotta/Getty ImagesWe've called out Will and Jada Pinkett Smith for sharing a little too much info about their sex lives before. Well, Jada just doesn't know when to quit! A few weeks ago, the actress said in order to keep her sex life exciting, that she enjoys sneaking off to her friend's bedroom or bathroom during a party with her man for a quick love-making session. But, according to her, that's the only place the Fresh Prince likes to get fresh.
"When you have three kids, you've got to take your opportunities when they come," says Pinkett Smith. "In a limo, on the way to the Academy Awards this year, Will started looking at me in this way that drives me wild. We started kissing passionately, and the next thing I knew, well, let's just say we missed the red carpet and I ended up with almost no makeup on."
We have had a few friends like this in our day--women who over share or talk up their dalliances as the next great love affair. Most of them are now either miserable or single. If you're really,

On Penguin Island at the San Francisco zoo, male penguins Harry and Pepper lived as a gay couple for six years. The zoo even gave them an egg to take care of, which they raised as their own baby chick. They cleaned and cared for each other up until last breeding season, when Harry moved out of the home he shared with Pepper and into Linda's place next door after her mate passed away. Uh oh! Check out the video from CNN-this love triangle is like something from an episode of Jerry Springer.

Brad Barket/Getty ImagesOn Friday I had the pleasure of meeting Harry Potter actress Emma Watson. She's grown up in the spotlight playing know-it-all Hermione Granger, but off screen she's become a favorite in the fashion industry. If you've seen any red carpet photos of Watson, you know the girl can dress. She says her closet is full of high end pieces from Proenza Schouler and Chanel (I noticed a black ceramic Chanel J12 on her dainty wrist) and she is the newest face of Burberry. But Emma will not be joining the ranks of J.Lo, Gwen Stefani, and other celebrities hawking their own goods.Read More »from Emma Watson thinks celeb lines have gotten ridiculous. Smart lady.
"First and foremost, I'm an actress," says Watson. "I'm really not interested in doing it for my own ego. I'm not a designer. If someone asked me to do something that was beneficial to a cause, then maybe I'd consider it, but not just [to be able to say] 'Look at me! I've got my own line!' [It's] gotten so ridiculous." Wow. We're impressed with 19-year-old Watson's intelligent take on celebrities in the fashion industry.
Puzzled by the title of this blog post? Well, that's because you think you know how to open a banana, but you are probably doing it wrong (as we were until a we stumbled upon this video). Why struggle with breaking open a banana stem, when you can simply peel the fruit the way a monkey does? We don't know how we've survived our whole lives without knowing the real way to open a banana, but we're sure that with this newfound knowledge we will never be the same. Enjoy!
Fashion Week DailyMichelle Obama has become more than just the first lady--she's now an undeniable style icon. Her wardrobe choices, her hairstyles and even her biceps are critiqued left and right.

Getty ImagesSex sells everything from alcohol to burgers, and cable network HBO can vouch for the success of racy shows like "Californication." Their new series, "Hung," follows a down-on-his-luck high school gym teacher turned gigolo who relies on his below-the-belt endowment for help. It's a far-fetched premise, but MTV has decided to rip it off--despite it being completely inappropriate subject matter for their demographic. "Hard Times" is a new comedy series in production that follows RJ Berger, an unpopular 15-year-old with an "anatomical gift." After his "gift" is "revealed in front of the whole school," his social status makes a dramatic change. Wow, what a wonderful message you are sending out to teens, MTV!Read More »from MTVâ€™s â€œHard Timesâ€: Relying on phallic comedies for ratings
It's bad enough that the music network once known for playing music videos now airs crappy reality shows with zero substance 24/7, but when the network sets bad examples for kids and is downright inappropriate, we draw the line. Remember when MTV planned to run "Model Maker," the

INFphotoIf you're Jon Gosselin, it's never too soon to move on. The male half of "Jon & Kate" was spotted in St. Tropez, France holding hands with Hailey Glassman less than three weeks after his wife filed for divorce. Glassman is the the 22-year-old daughter of the surgeon who performed Kate's tummy tuck. The new couple went to Tahiti Beach for lunch, shopped at the Prada and Hermes boutiques and spent a day on clothing designer Christian Audigier's yacht. "They're having fun," said Audigier. "I'm taking care of them."Read More »from Jon Gosselin dating daughter of Kateâ€™s plastic surgeon
Fear not! The story just gets classier: Jon is now capitalizing on his fame and launching a children's clothing line with Audigier. Gosselin spent the weekend decked out in Audigier's Ed Hardy clothing to display his devotion, including $150 jungle-inspired jeans featuring two angry tigers on the butt. "People who wear our clothes are edgy and fashion-forward," says Audigier's marketing director. "They're in tune with pop culture and they like to take risks." Well, we suppose
Hit Dan BackA few weeks ago, a disturbing story broke that Morgan Freeman was maintaining a 10-year relationship with his step-granddaughter with whom he had a questionable sexual encounter when she was young. Yes, they are not related through blood, but Freeman is 72 and E'Dena Hines is now 27, which means she would have been 17 when they first... um... got together. Once Freeman's wife found out about their secret affair she filed for divorce, and now the Enquirer is claiming that once proceedings go through, he and Hines are set to wed.Read More »from Morgan Freeman to marry his step-granddaughter
"Morgan has led her to believe that he wants to marry her," says a family insider. Another source says, "Becoming Mrs. Morgan Freeman has been E'Dena's goal."

Peter Kramer/Getty ImagesToday Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary added about 100 new words, most of them reflecting pop culture and societal trends like "frenemy," "staycation," and "webisode."
The word "frenemy" has been in our vocabulary since we first heard the word used in an episode of "Sex and the City." According to the new dictionary entry, the term dates to 1977 and means "one who pretends to be a friend but is actually an enemy." Frenemies do seem to be mostly prevalent in female relationships, particularly when one woman is highly competitive with another. A frenemy may try to steal your boyfriend or friends, trash talk you behind your back, borrow and ruin your clothes, sabotage your outfit, make you look bad at work, try to make you jealous, or do anything else that might cause you discomfort or frustration.
Some famous frenemies:
- Heather Locklear and Denise Richards
- Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan
- Gwyneth Paltrow and Winona Ryder
- Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera
