Nadia G isn’t a “vanilla” sort of cooking host. As the star of Nadia G’s Bitchin’ Kitchen, she rocks animal print, stilettos and some serious tattoos while cooking up a storm. Today, she’s sharing some of her best dishes with Ali.
Drink too much last night? If you’re hung-over, “you probably want to eat something nice and greasy.” She says. Nadia recommends chicken friend steak or poutine, but takes it to the next level if you’re really hurting. “I like to do a celery pineapple smoothie, ‘cause the key there is that it’s gotta taste as good going down as it does coming up.”
On a diet? For a ‘bitchin bikini body, Nadia would make a caramelized onion and fig egg-white sandwich. “The key with low fat eating is you have to make something really flavorful that makes up for the lack of fat,” she says. “Caramelized onions are perfect.”
If Ali wants to seduce George [Clooney], Nadia suggests cooking up a cozy and comforting sirloin shepherd’s pie to win...Read More »

The Australian starlet moved from the land down under to the U.S. when she was cast as surf girl McKenzie in Teen Beach Movie. But even though she’s far from home, she still maintains close ties to her country with her Australian roommate. “She keeps my accent in check,” Maia says about her roomie, who makes her check her American accent at the door.
Maia was also quick to dismiss some rumors for anyone who might be visiting her homeland. “Don’t hold a koala!” She warns. “They’re really vicious and have a really intense, obnoxious mating call. They’re not cuddly. It’s a myth.”
In her short time away from home, Maia has kept herself very busy. On The Fosters, she stars as Callie, a tough, off-beat teen who’s spent her entire life in the foster system. “...Read More »
When it comes to food reviews, Daymon Patterson takes it back to basics. The 35-year-old was working at Walmart when he started filming fast food reviews out of his car during his lunch break. Now, his hilarious commentary landed him his own Travel Channel show, Best Daym Take Out.
He may be a funny guy, but Daymon’s serious about one thing: burgers. Ali put him to the test to answer the age-old question, who makes the best?
McDonald’s Big Mac was the first on the table, and Daymon demonstrated his signature review technique. “You have to roll up on it slowly,” he says. “I always pay attention to my sauce situation. If it’s not on top, PLEASE let it be underneath. The cheese is happening, a little bit of lettuce down there.” His conclusion? “It’s a Big Mac. Take a couple bites and run away.”
Next up? Bacon sliders from White Castle. “Look at those pieces of bacon, isn’t that cute?” Daymon says of the mini toppings. “You know what this is perfect f...Read More »

Americans are more reliant on their smart phones and laptops than ever before, but many of us are unaware of the potential harm our favorite gadgets could cause.
“As a society, we have become so dependent on these devices,” Dr. Roshini Raj says, “But the truth is, we don’t know some of the long term effects.”
Dr. Raj says that while doctors have yet to pinpoint a correlation between cell phone use and brain cancer, neuroscientists researching the case believe a link does exist.
It sounds like some scary stuff, but Dr. Raj has tips to avoid any harmful affects. First, don’t keep your phone in your pocket all day or anywhere too close to your body. Second, use speakerphone or a landline to restrict the amount time your cell is pressed against your head. Third, and most importantly, limit your child’s cell phone exposure.
“Children are particularly susceptible to any kind of radiation damage, increasing their cancer risk,” Dr. Raj says, “So for...Read More »

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi made headlines this past spring with her dramatic post-baby weight loss, and the guy behind it all is Anthony Michael, her personal trainer and owner of Express Home Fitness.
Anthony helped the Jersey Shore star lose over 40 pounds after the birth of baby Lorenzo. But it wasn’t all about exercise, Anthony says. The biggest thing is being willing to change your diet.
“A lot of people put more stress on exercise than diet, but in reality, diet is more important,” he says. “Abs are made in the kitchen, not in the gym.”
As much as people might want a quick fix for getting that six-pack, Anthony says there’s really no such thing. “The biggest misconception is that everyone thinks abdominal work like crunches are going to give you great abs,” he explains, “but that’s the farthest thing from the truth.” He added that instead of targeting a specific area, those getting in shape should focus on the body as a whole beca...Read More »
