  • Laura Prepon on Ashton, Mila, and Going to Jail

    Laura Prepon is best known as Donna Pinciotti, the witty redhead on Fox’s long running sitcom That '70s Show, but she’s back on the small screen in a role that might raise some eyebrows. She plays a manipulative international-drug-smuggling lesbian in the new Netflix series, Orange is the New Black.

    The series follows a Piper Chapman (Taylor Shilling), a New York woman who is sent to federal prison when a crime she committed years before comes back to haunt her.

    Laura was excited for something different. “There are all these network lawyer shows being made, another CSI, another this, another that. I’m like, ‘I get to play a manipulative drug smuggling lesbian? I want to do that!’”

    “Do you kiss her?” Ali asked about Shilling’s character, Piper.

    “We do a lot more than kiss, girl.”

    “Gotta love cable!” Ali said. “You can’t do that on That 70s Show!”

    Kris Jenner took a break from Keeping Up with the Kardashians to stop by Daily Shot, and of course Ali wanted to know all about her new granddaughter, North West. A very proud Kris said of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby, born June 15,“She’s really cute, she’s beautiful, and she’s doing really well.”

    And while Kris, 57, loves being a grandmother, she doesn’t necessarily like the title. “I started out being grandma, and I thought, ‘that sounds a little funky to me now,’" she said. "So now I’m Lovey.”

    “I thought you were going to say, ‘Now I’m Mrs. Jenner,’" Ali quipped.

    “Why didn’t I think of that?” Mrs. Jenner responded.

  • Walking in Heels with Billy Porter

    Billy Porter may have just won Broadway’s biggest honor, but not much has changed since his Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical. He’s still singing his heart out eight times a week – in 6-inch heels – as Kinky Boots’ loveable drag queen, Lola.

    How does he manage his size12 women’s pumps? He says it’s all about energy. “The energy has to be down in the ground so you’re grounded at the same time your body pulls up,” he says. “There’s a regalness to it and it’s empowering. You can’t walk in heels hunched over!”

    Although Lola may be Billy’s perfect role, it took him a while to get there.

    “I came to NYC and I had a very specific thing that I could do,” he says about his Gospel-singing background. “That just wasn’t happening, and if I wanted it to happen, I had to take the reins.”

  • The Do's and Don’ts of Seduction

    Arden Leigh knows how to seduce. As a former dominatrix and the founder of Sirens, a women’s seduction coaching company, Arden has gathered her best tricks of the trade into her book “The New Rules of Attraction” to teach women how they can become the ultimate pickup artist.

    “It’s all about giving women a set of tools to use so when they do meet someone, they have confidence,” she says. “In a way, it’s like learning to drive.”

    Arden offered three seduction techniques:

    1. Define your personal brand. “Understand that your identity is yours to shape,” she says. “It’s up to you to give yourself permission to live your life as who you are, passionately."

  • Protect Your Pet in the Dog Days of Summer

    With the dog days of summer in full force, both you and your favorite furry friend are sure to spend more time outdoors in the sunshine. But with the warmer weather comes a new set of hazards for your pets. Heartworms, fleas and ticks are also out of hibernation, waiting to make themselves cozy on your pet.

    As pets spend more time outside, they are at increased risk of a flea infestation that can lead to anemia, allergic skin disease, tapeworms, and other more serious diseases. Ticks can also cause their own set of problems, including Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Ehrlichia, and local painful reactions to the tick bite itself.
