Hilary Duff and The Case of The Killer Heels

Despite the title of this post, nobody in this post was killed by heels or Hilary Duff. Rather, this post calls to question the footwear choice of the pregnant Hilary Duff while grocery shopping.

via Twitter @HilaryDuff

Is this woman crazy?! Who goes grocery shopping in heels?

I don't even wear shoes like that on the 2 days a year I get out my fancy clothes (trips to Magic Castle). On the contrary, I stick to 2 inch heels without stiletto and/or platform; yet my feet are begging for release from that prison before the night is even finished.

Grant it, my heels by whatever brand is available at Ross at the date of purchase are very likely crappy compared to the designer brands the celebs wear, but I doubt the shoes Mrs. Comrie-Duff is wearing can provide the comfort and ease offered by Keds, Reef flip-flops, or TOMS (my shoes of choice).


Oh women, how you love pain and beauty.

Kevin Richardson To Rejoin Backstreet Boys?

What the what?!

US Magazine is reporting that Kevin Richardson, the fifth member of the Backstreet Boys who left several years ago to pursue other things (ie having a family and performing on Broadway), will be joining his former band-matesgroup-mates in December when they set sail for their second Backstreet Boys cruise.

This news would be about 100x more exciting if I was going on the cruise, but none the less, it still is fabulous news. Of course, him joining them for the cruise does not equate to him joining the group again. However, it is a step in the right direction, and Kevin has not ruled out the possibility, even mentioning to Ryan Seacrest
"I would love to perform with them again on a more regular basis. Our chemistry when we come together just feels like old times."
Dear Kevin,

Please re-join the Backstreet Boys. Then, next summer, y'all should tour. Might I suggest tickets to said concert go on sale at a point in time in which I have money in my bank account.

Guess Who...

Guess who...

Once a child actor, he now works mostly behind the cameras, including directing episodes for such series as It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and the Emmy awarded winning Modern Family (note: the above picture was tweeted by a star of Modern Family).

He holds a Bachelor of Arts in English from a snooty junior university, but I can't hold that against him because he starred in my absolute favorite movie of all time. I can't hate someone connected to that masterpiece, even if I don't agree with the choices he makes as an adult.

Still not sure? Well you might have been just a little too young to remember his most popular television role, but you will definitely remember his brother. He even directed some episodes of his brothers famous T.G.I.F. show that also starred her.

Who is this?

Sidenote: He happens to be scheduled to appear on the Thrilling Adventure Hour in November that my fabulous friend got us tickets to. Eep! So excited :D

Brenda Song To Wed, Probably Without Baby

The Disney almost-princess (she never actually had her own show, so she is whatever is beneath a princess. I'm American, so I don't have to know what that royal business is) Brenda Song is gonna wed her future baby's daddy, Trace Cyrus. Remember in August when people went cray-cray over Brenda Song pregnancy rumors? Well those rumors were probably false so those cray-cray look even more cray-cray. Overreacting over false allegations, phesh, silly people.

Well, Song and Cyrus are now engaged! It was even confirmed by Trace on his personal twitter, and later by sister Miley.

Congrats to Trace Cyrus and Brenda Song and the use of social media to announce big things.


Emma Watson Sends Greetings From Oxford

You know I'm a sucker for Harry Potter related stories, and so here is another one specifically written just for me you.

Emma Watson is back to school. In March of this year, Emma announced she was taking a break from her studies at Brown to focus on her career. In celeb terms, this usually means, "peace out homies, school is for fools!" However, Ms. Granger Watson is having none of that and she is now back to her University studies. The setting has changed since Watson is beginning a semester abroad at Oxford, but she has stated she hopes to complete her studies at Brown.

A semester abroad? Who is this person, former-British child star worth millions OR typical college student?

Here is a message and photo shared by Emma via her official website.

New Message from Emma
16 October 2011

To Everyone who is starting a New School Year, (sorry those who have been at school for a while Oxford starts late)

Just to say have a great term and good luck with all your work.
You might not hear from me for a while because I will be really busy studying but I wanted to just say hi and bye : )

Hope you all like 'My Week with Marilyn' and i'll keep you posted on 'Perks'.

Love Emma xx

Matthew Lewis In Vegas

I weep.

I had a productive Saturday spent promoting Issue 2 or The Gryffindor Daily Prophet (check it out) and restructuring the nargles out of the Showbiz Department. I was feeling pumped. I was like boom, boom, boom! *pats self on back* "CC, you are awesomebeans!"

With Midnight approaching, I set aside my work to have a quick peek at Twitter before calling it a night. *Enter sadness*

Twitter welcomed me with this tweet from MFH:

@Mattdavelewis: I'm in Las Vegas. Tonight I think we're hitting a club called Pure. Anybody been?
Tears erupt (metaphorically, that is).

Why? Why did I not see this tweet 6 hours ago when there was totes enough time to hop in my car and drive to Vegas for this stalking opportunity? Furthermore, why have I not been to Vegas in over a year? Where has life taken me?

So many questions to ponder.

Demi Lovato And Her Goofy Hat

It has been a while since I posted on someone not related to Harry Potter or my teenage dreams. I apologize for the lack of diversity, but I like what I like and I'm not ashamed of that.

But...even I like a break from the norm every so often, and so I give you a Demi Lovato update. I suppose technically this is predictable since I do have quite an archive on Demi Lovato posts.


Demi tweeted the above photo on Friday with the caption: "Favorite thing about traveling... Goofy souvenirs :D "

I love to see how great she is doing. She seems so happy and young, just before the picture she tweeted about eating a blue ring pop and susbsequently discovering herself to have a blue month and toungue saying, "Man this is embarrassing." I love that down-to-earth, eaveryday girl vibe she emits. And she is just so stickin' beautiful.

Demi has been pretty busy promoting her new album, Unbroken, and tickets to her mini tour A Special Night with Demi Lovato went on sale Friday. Girlfriend has come a long way since her emotional crash last October on tour with the JoBros. Love to see the growth and strength.

Don't forget to listen to the emotional first single, Skyscraper.

Always rooting for Demi.

Teen Icon Revisited...JTT!

Alright y'all, your life is about to get totally exciting because you can now stalk follow Jonathan Taylor Thomas (JTT) on Twitter! And what a great time to join, what with The Lion King 3D in theatres and Tim Allen back on TV, it's like the stars have aleigned for a JTT comeback!

Now, his tweets have not exposed any fabulous news of a comeback, yet. However, I would like to point out that 1/3 of his current tweets are messages to other 90s icons; it's like my childhood Tiger Beat collection is totally going viral.

Notice the Danielle Fishel tweet? He also tweeted something to Devon Sawa which basically makes me feel like I'm 12 years old watching those two in Wild America.

I'm hoping for some juicy details on a reburgeoning acting career. Will get back to you with details later. *fingers crossed*

Matthew Lewis Is My Future Husband

I've missed blogging.

Fortunately, one of my classes has just ended and suddenly my evenings have opened :D

So here is one of my favorite wizards to bring in this new wave of posts.

Don't you just melt when you see that half grin smile? So, My Future Husband (MFH) posts a lot about some British teams and sport I don't understand, but I have recently asked a Brit to translate the tweets so that MFH and I might share a bond over it, so I'll keep you posted. For now, let me explain that the picture is of him holding some cup/trophy that some team from some sport won. Capisci?

Notice that celebratory beer by his foot? That was accompanied by many more, me thinks, and my poor wittle Mafew woke up with a hangover. The night before presenting at an awards show is probably not the best night to party hard, but when your team wins how can you resist?

The next day Matt presented with Tom Felton at the British, Radio 1 Teen Awards. And after the event he tweeted the following:
Bloody hell, there were thousands of you. And you're really loud. I specifically told you I was hungover. Cheers for the reception though. X
Man, how I likey this one.

In other news, Matt took to Twitter last week to discuss puberty.
I'm still confused as to why people keep talking about me and puberty in the same sentence. I'm 22. Ta
Umm...duh, because those fake teeth in Harry Potter hid your post-puberty gorgeousness from us.

Matt continued by explaining: "No, no, no. Puberty made me greasy and miserable. At 14. The gym and my dentist were kind to me. At 22. Getz?"

And...since we are on the topic puberty...

As a child, she guest starred on both Clarissa Explains It All and Pete and Pete, two of the best Nickelodeon shows, ever.

Today, she makes an occasional appearance in the Upper East Side and lends her voice to Robot Chicken, among other things.

Gryffindor Daily Prophet

Umm...not to like brag and stuff, but I wasn't lying when I said the Gryffindor Daily Prophet is awesome.

The site exceeded it's monthly bandwidth in just 24 hours and was temporarily shut down. No worries, we are up and running again with over 1600 hits in just three days :D

Come know you want it.
