  1. Oh Alison, such a shame you have to hide your light under Trudy's bushel… wow.

  2. Trying to picture Christina in one of those hokey scenes from an old movie. With glasses on, hair up, wearing a little navy blue number with a Peter Pan collar. The glasses come off, the hair comes down. (Leave that collar buttoned–this is an old movie.) "Why, Miss Hendricks, you're beautiful!"

    Nope. Wouldn't buy it. Just like I don't believe a pair of glasses is enough to disguise Superman….

  3. Alison Brie is scorching in an upcoming photoshoot from Complex, as well as the behind-the-scenes video.

    Inside the link the author said "I don't watch Mad Men b/c I don't like mediocre dramas set in the 60's." Really??

    And about Cristina…. Way to go girl! Enough with all the "heavy" stuff!

  4. Am I the only one who loved Christina's GG dress? It seems that way.

    And Kiernan is awesome as always.

  5. Noah, you are not. I adored it. jez posted her love as well.

  6. Christian Siriano can do no wrong, and did our girl props.

  7. According to the newest issue of Game Informer, Aaron Staton is voicing one of the main characters in a new video game coming out this Fall, L.A. Noire.

    I'm excited because I love to play video games, and this one is supposed to be pretty good, since it is set in Los Angeles in the late 1940s and you solve a series of murders.

    If anyone is interested:
