Randy Fenoli has helped hundreds of thousands of brides find their perfect dresses, and he stopped by Daily Shot to talk to Ali about the secrets to looking good on that special day.
There's one shape that Randy says is the most forgiving for every woman, "Of course an A-Line is going to cover anything." But rather than just covering flaws, he thinks women should emphasize assets with an hourglass shape. "It's about silhouette and proportion…. If you're fuller on top, get a dress that's a little bit fuller on the bottom. If you're smaller on the top, get something that has a little embellishment up here."
The top thing a bride should keep in mind when picking a dress, Randy says, is, “which dress makes you feel the most beautiful. Because when you feel beautiful, that’s what makes a beautiful bride. It’s about that confidence.”
But would Randy ever lie to a woman if she were wearing the wrong dress? “Yes I would,” he says. “If you’re standing in front...Read More »

August 17th is National Thrift Shop Day, and if anyone can tell us how to handle racks and racks of secondhand styles, it’s Sandee Joseph. The fashion blogger showed off her chic thrifted outfit and gave some of her best shopping advice for real body women.
WATCH: Plus Size Fashion Tips
First off, don't be intimidated if you're not a size 2. Thrift shops are swimming with three things you should always aim for: blazers, skirts, and blouses. "They're the easiest pieces to add to your wardrobe," she says.
Second, don’t be afraid of hitting up the men’s section for a great button-down, especially if you’re busty. “I have the issue of button down shirts that gap in the middle, so I’ll go to the men’s department and get myself a white blouse,” she says. “Roll it at the sleeves, belt it, pop up the collar, make it cool. Add some chains to it to make it more feminine.”
Another tip? Befriend the salespeople. Sandee says she’s gotten close with t...Read More »

As an Iron Chef and Co-Host of The Chew, Michael Symon can cook with pretty much anything. But there’s one ingredient that really takes him back to his roots.
“My yaya made her own Greek yogurt,” Michael says, “Those are the best foods… the foods that bring you back to childhood.”
Michael says his favorite thing to cook using Greek yogurt is a flavorful roast chicken. “I whisk together some yogurt, honey, garlic, and fresh herbs, and I marinate the whole chicken in it,” he says. “It makes it more tender and it makes it more juicy.” You can find the recipe for Michael’s dish below.
And what about Ali? Being married to a Greek, she cooks with the stuff too. “The greatest salad dressing I make… white balsamic, mustard, olive oil, and a tablespoon of plain yogurt,” she says.
So do people care more about food now more than ever? The chef thinks that the success of The Chew shows how much mor...Read More »

Stand-up comedian Gilbert Gottfried got famous as a cast member of Saturday Night Live in the eighties, and since then, he's been everywhere: late-night shows, TV, movies, commercials. You know, he's the one with a voice like a bicycle horn who talks with his eyes closed.
In fact, after his turn as the voice of Iago the parrot in Disney's Aladdin, he became a ubiquitous voiceover talent. But for the most part, Gilbert's humor can't be considered anything close to PG. His humor is proudly raunchy and often controversial. In fact, he's gotten into trouble over comments he made about 9/11 and was fired as the voice of the Aflac duck for tweets about the Japanese Tsunami.
He stopped by Daily Shot to talk to Ali about his stand-up show at NYC comedy club Carolines, and they discussed the line comedians walk with their audiences.
“People pick and choose what to be offended by,” Gilbert says, citing Mel Gibson’s racist, sexist, violent and ant...Read More »

Succeeding in business is all about who you know, and Miki says you’ve got to get your friends involved on the ground floor. Once she has an idea for a business, she puts together a “meeting of the minds,” where she invites all of her “smartest friends from different industries” together for a brainstorming session.
But to have a good group of friends you can count on, “Step 1, overall, is to eliminate negative relationships in your life.” So how do you get rid of those people? Miki put together a list of “inspiring friends and depleting friends.”
She explains what she means by ‘depleting friends’: “Do they wanna just get drunk on weekends? Do they wa...Read More »
