    Re: Eva Mendes – absolutely thought you meant, like, Beauty Blenders but no. Those are just sponges.

    As much as I love George Clooney, I see him with Amal and think how much younger she is. At times it’s jarring. They are so good looking together but wow…

    Eva Mendes is always hustling and doing what it takes to take care of her family. I really respect her for that.

    Nikki Haley always seemed to be one of those who tried to pass for white. She’s is an enabler and promoter of racist ideas and ideology and I hope her political career never recovers. Horrible person.

      I’ve seen her yearbook photo and it would not surprise me at all if she had lightened her skin.

    • SugarHere says:

      Let’s say that criticizing a pair’s age gap is no different that pinpointing racial differences within a couple. If it doesn’t come to mind to say the color contrast between Lola and Lucas is jarring, why would it be acceptable to emphasize age gap as some sort of abnormality?

      Reluctance to normalize ethnic difference within marriage is racism. What do we want to call the same reaction as applied to age difference? I would love to hear diverging opinions on the matter because this conversation is still in progress in my mind.

      • Sandii says:

        Well…. here is my opinion. It is not the same. Race is a concept. Age is a fact.

        Mostly the women are younger. Especially when it comes to huge age differences. Or do you see many 50 year old men being the caretaker of their 80 year old wife?

    I had such a laugh at a (now corrected) typo on Brad Pitt’s skin care range website

    Copied & pasted from source:

    “But Le Domaine’s new website has suffered an awkward blunder as the website boasted that the products contain ‘no conservatives’.

    The amusing gaffe has since been corrected to read the correct statement that the products contain ‘no preservatives’.”

    The fuck is he wearing jeans for when she got dolled up? I guess if she doesn’t mind, but still.

    • lucy2 says:

      They definitely look like they’re going to two different events.

    • Concern Fae says:

      Beat me to it! This bugs the hell out of me. I live in a college town and every weekend you see girls who spent hours getting ready, in nice dresses and tottering on high heels, and the guys are wearing ratty jeans and haven’t even brushed their hair. I want to take the girls and shake some sense into them. And there are so many boys wondering why they don’t get laid.

      I know my middle aged self butting in would just horrify these girls. But the fantasy of zapping them with wisdom remains.

      • JackieJacks says:

        Totally thought the same thing – their outfits don’t match it all. Is she running off to a very fancy girls night after dinner with hubby? What are we missing from this story? And we all know she can do low key more casual glam. We’ve seen her do before. Sometimes I do think her outfit choices are a bit much but if i had a tall and very slim figure like hers with legs for days – and the budget to boot – I’d probably be rocking the same stuff she wears without shame or irony whatsoever.

      • bettyrose says:

        I’m so glad I went to college in the 90s! We lived in flannels, jeans, and high tops. I would never have put on a sexy dress for anything less than a formal occasion. From the ages of about 25-40 I enjoyed dressing up much more.

        Brilliant! This also applies to the young woman who I saw bring breakfast to class when she was late (and seems to care about her grade) and someone using substances that won’t work with her anxiety meds (she knows too but doesn’t need extra lecture). Can’t tell them! But it’s not easy to stay quiet!

    • Bella says:

      This would be my hub and I and I’m a year older. His only concession would be a high end Hawaiian shirt.

      • Sunnee says:

        I love going all out with my fashion choices. I always wear pencil skirt snd heels to work. And I always dress up to go out, even if it’s to a low key dinner with my husband. He’ll be in jeans and a button down and I’ll be dolled up. Dressing up is exciting for me. My mother did it and my younger daughter does it. The other day she dressed so cute-70’s green plaid hipster flares, wide belt, micro lavender sweater, scarf around her head, hoop earrings, chunky heels, Hermès scent. I asked “hey, where you going?” Response: “to petco” lol. She works in fashion in NYC.
        My other daughter works with kids. She wears slouchy sweaters, leggings and Birkenstocks most of the time. Even when she goes out on the town with her friends.

    • JayNay says:

      yeah this picture is like a piece of evidence of the double standard for men and women. reminds me of a best-of list of Saturday Night Live performances where all the women were dressed up and glammed up and then there’s Jack Antonoff in a ratty tshirt.

      • turbunguin says:

        My partner and I have a similar dynamic going on, so I don’t see the problem. In nice weather, I enjoy going all-out fancy–much more than a venue requires–and he just dresses in comfy slouchy linen casualness. Conversely, in winter, I will go to very upscale venues in an over-sized lumpy cashmere sweatsuit and uggs and he will be nicely dressed in a suit or sports coat. We check in with each other about our choices and most of the time the other doesn’t care, so we go out visually quite mismatched but happy with ourselves.

  5. Eurydice says:

    Udoka wasn’t suspended for cheating on Nia Long. He was suspended for violating team policy and having an affair with a Celtics employee. If he’d cheated with somebody outside of the Celtics organization it would have been different.

    • Becks1 says:

      I was going to say the same thing. Apparently there is a pretty hard and fast rule against any kind of relations with an employee (not sure if its an NBA rule or Celtics rule.)

      • Lightpurple says:

        Affair was with a subordinate. Celtics rules, contract violation. Team is definitely working to comply with state laws on sex discrimination (sex discrimination includes sexual harassment) And Wyc’s statement sounds like there was a prior offense for which he received a warning that he ignored and violated.

      • Taehyung's Noona says:

        Were Brett Favre Black, we’d be talking about nothing else. RIP Hilary Mantel.

    • lucy2 says:

      Thanks , I was about to make the same comment. Poor Nia though! I hope she has a lot of support around her.

    • Debbie says:

      I thought that was a joke because Nia Long has such a striking face.

  6. CC says:

    RIP Hilary Mantel and her devastatingly accurate observations of the British monarchy.

  7. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Love her shoes.

  8. louisaw@buy-global.com says:

    Did Amal just come from, or is she going to a party after dinner? Otherwise why is she SO overdressed? I mean she looks amazing but all that just for dinner? And he looks like he just popped out to pick up take out.

    • Claire says:

      She’s a mum of twins. Us multiple mummies don’t get out much – so we go a bit OTT when we do!

      • Cacax says:

        You act as if she didn’t have live in staff and other help, she is not an average mom of twins, plus they aren’t newborns. She was always overdressed, it’s tacky. But agree that she looks good but she likes to flaunt her clothes and wealth

  9. Janet DR says:

    The pain med story is crazy. Especially for NY state. That doctor needs to move!

    • BeanieBean says:

      That’s what I came to comment on. That was appalling! I feel so bad for that young woman. Then it seems they’ve also tried to brand her as some opioid seeker or something, anything to dismiss her as a woman with personhood. I hope she’s able to get an attorney & sue the heck out of everybody. This is NOT right.

    • Jaded says:

      Maybe those idiot doctors should re-read the Hippocratic Oath again.

      I swear to fulfill, to the best of my ability and judgment, this covenant:

      I will respect the hard-won scientific gains of those physicians in whose steps I walk, and gladly share such knowledge as is mine with those who are to follow.

      I will apply, for the benefit of the sick, all measures [that] are required, avoiding those twin traps of overtreatment and therapeutic nihilism.

      I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.

      I will not be ashamed to say “I know not,” nor will I fail to call in my colleagues when the skills of another are needed for a patient’s recovery.

      I will respect the privacy of my patients, for their problems are not disclosed to me that the world may know. Most especially must I tread with care in matters of life and death. If it is given me to save a life, all thanks. But it may also be within my power to take a life; this awesome responsibility must be faced with great humbleness and awareness of my own frailty. ABOVE ALL, I MUST NOT PLAY AT GOD.

      I will remember that I do not treat a fever chart, a cancerous growth, but a sick human being, whose illness may affect the person’s family and economic stability. My responsibility includes these related problems, if I am to care adequately for the sick.

      I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is preferable to cure.

      I will remember that I remain a member of society, with special obligations to all my fellow human beings, those sound of mind and body as well as the infirm.

      If I do not violate this oath, may I enjoy life and art, respected while I live and remembered with affection thereafter. May I always act so as to preserve the finest traditions of my calling and may I long experience the joy of healing those who seek my help.

    • StellainNH says:

      Yes, that is so infuriating. Those doctors should be charged with negligence.

  10. Roxy says:

    Anyone hear about Joshua Jackson & Jodie Turner-Smith breaking up?

  11. Debbie says:

    I think they look great together as a couple, definitely visually well-matched (obviously not their garments today). I also have no issue with people when they are involved with someone and there’s an age difference. They are 2 consenting adults who each bring something valuable to their relationship, so what’s the big deal? It wouldn’t matter if their genders were reversed either, they’re adults and their relationship is their own business.

  12. jferber says:

    Could Amal look any more gorgeous?

  13. TeamMeg says:

    One of the dumbest things about Pitt’s new skincare line is the unnecessary translation of La Creme and Le Serum to The Cream and The Serum on the front of the bottle. Like DUH. Nobody can figure that out?

    The pretentious, oversized sculptural lids are also really dumb.
