Emily Maynard is the new Batchlorette and discloses her beauty secret, Obagi!
Emily Maynard has signed on as the star of The Bachelorette! The Southern beauty's season on the show is bound to garner more viewers than any other installment of the ABC franchise, given her immense popularity with fans. Emily Maynard is already known to fans as the stunningly beautiful ex-fiancée of Brad Womack from The Bachelor, and the Daily Mail confirms that she has now agreed to appear in The Bachelorette. One thing is certain: Maynard is going to make the most beautiful bachelorette yet. If you're wondering what some of her beauty secrets are, read on!
Now that she's back in the spotlight, many are wondering about Maynard's beauty secrets. Luckily, she has shared them with The Possessionista. What fans may find hard to believe is that even the seemingly flawless Emily Maynard has beauty concerns! One of them is her sensitive skin. According to the bachelorette, she has "the most sensitive skin in the world." The Possessionista talked to Maynard about her skin care regimen, and she shared the following details: "Seriously, if I even dream about going to bed without washing my face I break out. Every morning I wash with Obagi Gentle cleanser, Obagi C-Exfoliating Day Lotion, and then Elta SPF. At night I wash my face with Murad Time Release Acne Cleanser, Retin-A, and Sothys Revitalizing Serum."
Maynard's hair is the target of much envy from Bachelorette fans. Discussing how she achieves soft waves in her platinum locks, Maynard said, "I go section by section starting at the top and curl it with a curling iron and then clip a velcro roller in it. You roll everything away from your face and put the rollers on the side vertical. I leave them in until I'm ready to walk out the door and then spray with hairspray. My splurge is Aveda, but for everyday I use TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Hairspray."
The Daily Mail reports that Maynard will begin filming The Bachelorette in March. It will be exciting to watch the single mom find love when her season debuts. It will also be fun to see how Maynard's approach to beauty changes for her season on the show.
Ashton Kutcher Makes Idiotic Comment About Penn State Sexual Abuse Scandal , Source Elitedepot.com
For someone so plugged into The Culture, Ashton Kutcher can be remarkably tone-deaf about keeping up with Important Current Events. For instance: he tweeted a misguided, insanely dumb remark about the sacking of Penn State University coach Joe Paterno, who was fired yesterday for turning a blind eye to a child molester on his staff. Said Kutcher (via Uproxx.com): "How do you fire Jo Pa? #insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste."
Kutcher -- fending off a torrent of incredulous tweets -- then deleted his post, following up with an apology: "As of immediately I will stop tweeting until I find a way to properly manage this feed. I feel awful about this error. Won't happen again." And this: "As an advocate in the fight against child sexual exploitation, I could not be more remorseful for all involved in the Penn St. case."
In their angered responses to his uninformed Tweet, many of Kutcher's 8-million-plus followers didn't mince words. "Maybe try reading a newspaper or watching the news before making such dumb*** tweets? There's an idea, Einstein.." wrote @jsmith1872. Another, @barrettmarson, was somewhat gentlerwith his language: "What kind of bubble does @aplusklive in that he didn't know of paterno story? #mustbenice."
But it wasn't just the laypeople who got in on the uproar: New England Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco tweeteda response to Kutcher, saying: "Good luck fending off all the people you've upset with YOUR opinion boss."
Uproxx writer Cajun Boy perhaps put it best, calling foul on Kutcher's explanationthat he was totally unaware of the Penn disaster -- which has been dominating headlines 24-7. "There's simply no way NO WAY this guy did not know that Joe Paterno was at the center of sexual abuse scandal," he writes. "This story has been EVERYWHERE and it's been going on for days now, and Kutcher is a pretty big sports fan. If he had access to Twitter, which he obviously did, he would have seen something about it."
San Francisco Bans Restaurant Nudity
October 24, 2011 at 7:14AM by Justine Sterling, Source Elitedepot.com
San Franciscans who prefer to have their food in the nude are facing opposition. Last Thursday, the ironically named Supervisor Scott Wiener proposed an ordinance on public nudity etiquette that would require nudists dining in restaurants to forgo their naturalist ways and don clothing.
Public nudity is legal in San Francisco as long as the nude individual is not in a state of arousal. But last Thursday's meeting of the Board of Supervisors' Public Safety Committee resulted in a ruling that, if approved by the full Board, will ban practicing nudists from public eateries, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Wiener's proposal also requires those in the buff to place down a towel or barrier of some sort before they sit down on public seating.

"San Francisco is a liberal and tolerant city, and we pride ourselves on that fact," Supervisor Wiener said in a statement. "Yet, while we have a variety of views about public nudity, we can all agree that when you sit down naked, you should cover the seat, and that you should cover up when you go into a food establishment."

The hearing did not draw the throngs of nude enthusiasts that the committee expected. Only two individuals showed up to testify and they were for Wiener's proposal. The ban is not thought to be an attempt to outlaw nudity in San Francisco altogether but rather is a simple issue of public health.
What do you think about nudity in restaurants? Should people be allowed to strip down before they chow down? Or should they make like salads and get dressed?

Your Cheating Heart: iPhone App Finds Wife With Another Man, Source EliteDepot.com
By NED POTTER | ABC News Tues, Oct 19, 2011 10:03 AM EDT
When Applereleased its new iOS 5operating system to go with its iPhone 4S, it touted a new app called "Find My Friends" as a great way to track and meet up with friends. If they agree, you can see their locations on a map on your screen.
But the app's enterprising customers are apparently already finding other uses. If the online posts appearing on a chat forum at MacRumors.comare for real, "Find My Friends" may have already claimed its first marriage.
Saturday night on MacRumors, a man saying he lived in New York City posted this:
"Divorcing wife. Thanks iPhone 4s and Find My Friends.
"I got my wife a new 4s and loaded up find my friends without her knowing. She told me she was at her friends house in the east village. I've had suspicions about her meeting this guy who live uptown. Lo and behold, Find my Friends has her right there.
"I just texted her asking where she was and the dumb b---- said she was on 10th Street!! Thank you Apple, thank you App Store, thank you all. These beautiful treasure trove of screen shots [sic] going to play well when I meet her ... at the lawyer's office in a few weeks.
"thankfully, she's the rich one."
It has not been determined whether the story posted on MacRumors was, in fact, authentic, and the man did not immediately reply to a request from ABC News for comment. But more than 100,000 people have viewed the posts, according to MacRumors. More than 300 of them replied with expressions of sympathy, skepticism and -- this being the Internet -- a few less-than-savory jokes.
Arnold Kim, the editorial director of MacRumors, said it was "definitely a busy thread." MacRumors did not try to verify the man's story (if, in fact, it was a man), but said everyone who registers for its forums has to validate their email when they register.
"Find My Friends" uses the iPhone or iPad's built-in Global Positioning System to see your friends' locations on a map on the screen of your device. GPS can be accurate to within a few feet for civilian uses.
Apple says "The Find My Friends app is a great way to share your location with people who are important to you" -- whether you're trying to meet friends at a crowded concert or make sure your kids get safely home from school.
The man was back with a new post less than an hour later, including a couple of screen grabs showing the location of his wife was on East 65th St., though she sent him a text message saying, "Was hard to find stupid cab hate meat packing...."
The husband again: "She said she is in meat packing district which is on 12th street. I DONT THINK SO. Appreicate [sic] the support. not my finest hour here but going to get better soon."
The new iPhone 4Sand operating system have been off-the-charts successes for Apple, which said this morning that it sold more than four million iPhone 4S in three days, and that 25 million people are now using iOS 5.
Technology watchers are particularly struck by Siri -- the voice-recognition "personal assistant" built into the new software that accepts spoken commands, answers questions, and is eerily intelligent in its responses.
There was a memorial service Sunday night for Steve Jobson the campus of Stanford University, near Apple's corporate headquarters in California, amid widespread stories that he was deeply involved in the next iPhone -- the replacement for the iPhone 4S.
The presumably-jilted husband put up one last post Saturday night: "what really chaps my a-- is not the cheating but the fact that they were probably admiring and laughing over the new phone I BOUGHT. haha. well someone about to get the last laugh tonight."
And that was the last from him. The whole thing may have been a joke, or a domestic tragedy. Ben Crompton, who writes the Pocket Lint blog, said there have certainly been other apps before, such as Google Latitude, that let you track people through GPS signals, but Apple will make it trendy.
"The burning issue seems to be that it is a very powerful tool to have," he wrote, "bringing with it huge amounts of info to the user as well as delivering plenty of info about the user to others. For some this power will outdo the user's knowledge of how to use it properly."
"Still, on the up side," he concluded, "maybe Siri will be able to offer some marriage guidance advice."

Kelsey Grammer says he thinks Camille Grammer only married him "because I was Frasier" ... and claims she regretted the marriage just DAYS after they tied the knot.
Grammer appeared on "Piers Morgan Tonight" yesterday ... and said, "[Frasier] had this great wonderful life ... he was stylish ... and just a little gay ... Kelsey Grammer is a different story."
But Grammer's smile disappeared when Piers asked about the most hurtful thing Camille has said about him ... and the actor replied, "She once said that I didn't want my daughter ... that pissed me off."
Moments later, Kelsey changed his mind ... saying, "The thing that she said that hurt me the most ... that hurt Kayte [his new wife] and me ... is that thing about the child we lost ... something about it being karma ... it's just disgusting."
-- who voices Smithers, Mr. Burns and several other major characters on "The Simpsons
" -- says he is willing to take an even BIGGER pay cut than FOX wants him to ... but he has a demand of his own.
Shearer and the rest of the cast have been asked to take a 45% reduction in salary in order for the show to continue. Shearer says he's willing to cut his salary a whopping 70% -- but he wants a percentage of the show's profits ... something he says the cast has been denied for years.
Shearer says his reps approached FOX with the idea ... but were told there are "simply no circumstances under which the network would consider allowing me or any of the actors to share in the shows success."
Ironically, Mr. Burns would probably have the same answer.
FOX has no comment.
Eminem: Prescription drug Ambien wiped out five years of my life Source Elitedepot.com

Eminem has spoken out about how the prescription drug Ambien caused him lose huge chunks of his memory.
The rapper also says that the sedative contributed to a four year long stretch of writers block. Eminem says that the pills were wiping out brain cells. He added:
a lot of my memory is gone. I don't know if you've ever taken Ambien, but it's kind of a memory-eraser. That sh*t wiped out five years of my life. People will tell me stories, and it's like, "I did that?" I saw myself doing this thing on [television network] BET recently, and I was like, "When was that?"
In the interview with Rolling Stone, Eminem said that he kept some of his writing from that period and that: It creeps me out. Letters all down the page it was like my hand weighed 400 pounds. I have all that shit in a box in my closet. As a reminder that I don't ever want to go back.
During the peak of his drug addiction, he revealed that he was taking up to 60 Valium and 30 Vicodin pills a day. In 2007, he overdosed on methadone. The doctors told me I'd done the equivalent of four bags of heroin, says Eminem. They said I was about two hours from dying.
The Recovery artist revealed that Elton John was one of the people who helped him to overcome his addictions. He usually calls me once a week to check on me, just to make sure I'm on the up-and-up, says Eminem. He was actually one of the first people I called when I wanted to get clean.
