As always, Tim Gunn is hesitant to call anything a ‘Fashion Don’t,’ because he likes to view the clothing in the context of the wearer’s personality. “The clothes we wear send a message about how we’re perceived.”
That said, sometimes looks can send confusing messages, so rather than trash celebrities, he and Ali discussed “the most perplexing” celebrity looks of all time.
High on Tim’s list is Helena Bonham Carter, whose red carpet style he finds, “a little off-putting.” He may also have whispered the phrase “hot mess.”
Also on the list is Paris Hilton. “I think we’re the butt of all her jokes,” says Tim. “She dresses to be a ridiculous cartoon character.”

Alec Mapa has guest-starred in more than 40 TV series, including Ugly Betty and Desperate Housewives, but what you may not know is that he's also a father.
Alec is Asian, his husband Jamison is white, and his adopted son Zion is black. “We look like the last two minutes from ‘It’s A Small World,’” he jokes.
Zion came to live with Alec and Jamison three years ago, when he was five. “We were like instant parents and we were clueless. Like I didn’t know that five-year-old boys had meltdowns at the end of the day and needed naps.”
His son had three rough weeks adjusting, “One minute he was living in Compton, in the hood. The next minute he was living with two gay guys. So it was like “Who are you, where am I, what’s gazpacho?”
“As soon as he knew he was safe and cared for, a light went off in his eyes and he became a regular kid.”
Alec hopes to encourage more people to adopt from the foster system. “People always said to me, ‘Aren’t you afraid the kids gonna have issues?’ Yeah, ‘cause...Read More »

Australian beauty Miranda Kerr stopped by Daily Shot to share beauty secrets with Ali, and talk about her new campaign helping women and girls.
Miranda, 30, has been modeling since her early teens, and became a household name as a Victoria’s Secret model. She also studied nutrition and now runs her own organic skin care line, Kora Organics.
She told Ali that a few simple food items can do wonders for skin and hair: egg white on your hair makes it shiny. Avocado is also great for hair and face. “Cucumber is great for your eyes, “ she adds. But her favorite is coconut oil, used as a hair treatment.
As for healthy summer snacking, she says, “You know what’s a good way to have a refreshing tasty treat? Frozen blueberries.” She says she and her son love that snack, as well as a special healthy muffin recipe she makes. (See below.)
Miranda is also partnering with Gillette Venus for charity. She’s spreading the word that for every tweet using hashtag, “#stepup,” Venus will donate $1 to St...Read More »
They’re back, and they're on fire. The fifth season of Real Housewives of New Jersey may be the most dramatic yet.
Why is there so much fighting? Melissa Gorga explains, “There’s something about family. It’s a force of nature.”
Kathy Wakile adds, “I’ve been known to duke it out with my sister.”
Melissa says that sometimes the cameras happen to catch a whirlwind of cat fights, and that's just how their family deals with problems. "Just when you think there's nothing left...there's a lot more to come," she explains.
Wondering what insults push them over the edge? For Melissa it’s being called “fake,” and for Kathy, “People say that I’m a follower. I’m not a follower.”
Since every Real Housewives series features some famous outlandish quotes, Ali put Melissa's and Kathy’s Housewife knowledge to the test in a game of “Words of a Housewife.”
So who said what in Ali's list of crazy quotes? Play along with...Read More »

Cheryl Burke still hates to think about the tabloid that criticized her weight back in 2008. The article came out right before the Dancing with the Stars premiere, “and I was wearing a costume and had to go out and face millions of people,” she remembers. “Obviously I’m human and I was hurt by it and affected by it.”

She says that the public slam led her to doubt herself continuously when she went on the red carpet or put on one of the notoriously skimpy Dancing with the Stars costumes. But she didn’t want to keep doubting herself, and she doesn’t want anyone else to either. “Embrace your body,” is her message. “Curves are sexy as hell.”
“For me it’s all about making sure women out there have self-esteem and just be able to be confident in their own skin.”
In fact, Cheryl is so confident these days, she became a spokesperson for Depend undergarments. And it’s “Depend,” not “Depends,” she clarifies.
At 29,...Read More »
