The More You Know: Anna Wintour Becomes More Powerful, Kobe Gets His Comeuppance, and Why Chinese Bacon Should Be Avoided

  • If you’re eating anything, regardless of the time of day or what it is, put it down and scooch it far away from you. And then scooch it three inches more. Since last Friday, over 6,600 dead pigs have washed up on the shores of the Huangpu river in Shanghai. The Pigoporkalypse has come after campaigns to stop the sale of diseased ridden pork, so it makes a lot of sense that the infected pigs would then be dumped in the city’s main drinking  water supply.


  • Anna Wintour, the infamously powerful fashion maven, has received a promotion. Wintour is now the artistic director of the Condé Nast empire. Will she take leave of her Vogue tenure? Not completely. Wintour will still retain direct command as editor of Vogue and editorial director of Teen Vogue, she just has even more magazines in her roster, now. To get an idea of the impressive list of magazines that the very intimidating woman will have some control over, think of all of the magazines you see in an airport snack store, take away Cosmopolitan and The National Enquirer, and you have the general idea.


  • Kim Kardashian is going to be facing some heat now that one of the former producers of Keeping Up with the Kardashians has sworn and oath and admitted, in a 165-page deposition, that maybe, possibly, potentially, definitely, there were at least a couple scenes “scripted, reshot or edited” to make Kris Humphries look like a total ass after Kim decided she wanted to file for divorce. I’m so shocked that some aspects of reality television are scripted and/or fake. My entire world has shattered. I’m more taken aback that someone could use 165 pages of paper write at this, assuming the font isn’t 165pt—how do you have that much to say about this family?


  • Unfortunately relevant and also very disturbing, there is a possibility that there is a Kris Jenner sextape out there. Like mother, like daughter.


  • I love love love love love when stars use their clout to actually do something wonderful. This week in awesome things celebrities are doing: Patrick Stuart spoke very openly to end violence against women after feminist commenter Zerlina Maxwell faced a lot of heat to suggest that maybe teaching rape prevention to men, rather than having women always be on their guard and at fault in a rape scenario, is a good idea. Stuart was quoted as saying that “this is a call to action—not an action that will make things better in six months’ time or a year’s time,” he continued, “but action that might save someone’s life and someone’s future this afternoon, tonight, tomorrow morning.”


  • Dwayne Wade is in a bunch of Dove Men commercials with his sons for the “Dove Men+Care” campaign and it is so adorable.



  • I can only hope to age as gracefully as Tina Turner’s right pinky finger. Bow to the legend!
