We’ve all had those winter “What do I wear?” moments. … Colder weather means thick sweaters, lots of layers, and puffy jackets that, well, pretty much make you look like a marshmallow. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Adam Glassman, creative director of O, The Oprah Magazine, says that following a few tips can make you look leaner while still keeping warm.
“People end up looking like an Oompa Loompa,” Adam says. When selecting coats, he recommends looking for puffers with vertical seaming and says it’s important to find a coat that’s not too short. “You really want something that’s mid-thigh or to the knee and very streamlined,” he says.
When it comes to choosing your daily dress, Adam says, “you have to start from the inside out,” because the correct bra can make you look 10 pounds thinner. “You have to go for a bra fitting — 85 percent of women are wearing the wrong-size bra,” he says.

In 2001, Wendy Williams had just given birth to her son when she found out that her husband had been cheating on her. She made a controversial decision — she stayed.
The talk show host explained her thought process in dealing with the issue while she was getting adjusted to motherhood. "You're not going to leave me alone to try to figure this out while I'm trying to get back to work and get myself together," she says. "No, you're going to stay, and we're going to figure this out."
Wendy says one of the biggest challenges was trying not to constantly bring it up. "If you elect to stay, you have to do one of the most mature things a woman can do in her life, and that is, don't crucify him at every turn," she says.
Wendy is also a successful author of the advice book "Ask Wendy" and the creator of a wig line called "Wendy Williams Hair World." Though the host wears wigs out of medical necessity...Read More »

With credits like ‘Battlestar Galactica,’ ‘Stand and Deliver,’ ‘Miami Vice,’ ‘Blade Runner,’ ‘Dexter’ and so many others, you might assume Edward James Olmos has few regrets when it comes to his career. But the actor says he looks back on one rejected role and sees a missed opportunity.
“I was given the opportunity to do ‘Something Wicked This Way Comes,’ and I chose not to,” he says. Edward, who is of Mexican descent, was offered the role of the devil. Since he didn’t know the director at the time, he was concerned about what the character might turn into. “We don’t have an opportunity too much to create characters, especially because of our ethnicity,” Edward says. “At that moment in time, our position in life artistically wasn’t set enough to take that.”
Now, Edward is starring in ‘Go for Sisters,’ a film about two estranged childhood friends who reconnect years later when one is assigned as the other’s probation officer. The proba...Read More »

Regina Hall is best known for her role as Brenda Meeks in the "Scary Movie" franchise, but there's one line that makes her cringe looking back. In "Scary Movie 2," Brenda attempts to spice things up in a love scene. She ends up yelling a string of obscenities at her onscreen partner, much to his horror.
That very string of obscenities, she says, is the line that most often gets quoted back to her by fans. Looking back, Regina says the line gave her "a moment of pause." "I thought, 'This is what I'm putting into the minds of the youth today.'"
Now she's starring in a new movie, "The Best Man Holiday," about college friends who reunite 15 years later over the holidays. She was thrilled to film with her "Best Man" co-stars again, but that didn't make one particular scene any less awkward.
"There's a scene I have to shoot with Harold Perrineau where I'm simulating being a 'good wife' in the morning," she says, al...Read More »
