Ellen Pompeo Spills “Grey’s” Scoop

The “Grey’s Anatomy” star opens up about the show’s upcoming crossover episode, the future of Cristina and Owen’s relationship and more. Listen in.

Carson Daly is still feeling the heat for comments he made yesterday morning on his radio show, and this time the source is the mother of a 9/11 hero.

Following Daly’s on-air joke that implied gay people were too weak to subdue an airline pilot – in this case, the JetBlue captain, Clayton Osbon, who simply lost control of his senses aboard a flight earlier in the week – Alice Hoagland has penned a letter to the host of The Voice.

Hoagland is the parent of Mark Bingham, one of the passengers on 9/11’s United Airlines Flight 93, who helped wrestle control from terrorists and crashed the plane in a Shanksville, Pennsylvania field, saving countless lives in the process.

“Yes, my gay son was known in our family for bringing me flowers on my birthday and Mother’s Day,” Hoagland writes. “He also was known for careening down the rugby pitch, and, on the morning of September 11, 2001, for charging unarmed down the aisle of a doomed Boeing 757 to face knife-wielding Islamist thugs in a hijacked cockpit.

“No one among his pick-up team of fellow passengers was asking ‘Are you straight? Are you gay?’ No one doubted that a guy who weighed 220 and stood 6’4” tall – who could run over a charging opponent on the field, and ran with the bulls in Pamplona earlier that summer – would be an asset to a desperate group trying to overcome a threat onboard an airliner.

“The world has its share of strong, heroic gay men. Gay men in sports uniforms and military uniforms have been winning America’s games and fighting America’s battles for a long time: quietly, humbly, and in the face of vicious bigotry.

“I hope you and I may have an opportunity to talk sometime. I prefer to believe you didn’t mean to offend. Good luck to you.”

Daly has since spoken to GLAAD and followed his Tweeted apology with the following statement:

We live in a time where gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals find courage every day to overcome adversity, stand up to bullying and find equality. I’m truly saddened that my words today suggested otherwise. I’ve long been a supporter of Gay and Lesbian rights, and I’m saddened that my comments, however unintentional, offended anyone, specifically members of the LGBT community. The fact that I have hurt anyone is devastating. I’m not that guy. I’m proud to be an ally of the LGBT community and will continue to fight with them.

Hot New Sunglasses For Summer



























Here comes the sun…and with it the hottest new sunglasses for summer! Three of the hottest trends in cool shades are:

MEOW. Cat eye sunglasses are purring with style this summer. Not your grandmother’s shades, the 2012 cat eye reflects this year’s color trends like blocks of color and ombre fading.

THROWBACK. Vintage sunglasses, real or inspired, grace your look with timeless glamour. Whether you choose an authentic 70’s Gucci or Annie Hall-inspired shades, going vintage guarantees modern glam.

GO BOLD. Don’t use your frames to hide behind, use them to make a statement. Thick frames aren’t for the fashion faint-hearted, they are for the trend-setters. Choose a classic color (black, brown, tortoise), but pick these demure colors in a big, bold frame.


1. Retrosun Vintage Gucci Cat Eye Sunglasses ($ 242)

Authentic vintage shades in a trending cat eye shape, these Gucci’s have it all. Wear them now and for years to come with their two-tone plastic frame and logo lettering.

2. Gucci Rounded Cat Eye Sunglasses ($ 275)

That was then, this is NOW. Gucci updates the classic cat eye with oversized round frames and on-trend ombré coloration. Flaunt your good taste with their logo lettering.

3. Alexander McQueen Cat Eye Sunglasses ($ 325)

Mad for mod. Black frames are lined with turquoise for a play on the colorblock craze. Gradient lenses add gray for the final block of color in these slick cat eye frames.

4. Retrosun Vintage Christian Lacroix Sunglasses ($ 245)

Very vintage. Authentic vintage frames don’t have to pretend…they are the real deal. These metal frames feature wrapped wire details and plastic temple tips in perfectly polished gold.

5. Karen Walker Helter Skelter Sunglasses ($ 180)

Posing as the original, these Karen Walker shades have a strong vintage vibe. Round sunglasses are all the rage again, and these feature a plastic frame with metal temples, bridge and arrow accents.

6. Retrosun Vintage Gucci 70’s Seduction Shades ($ 242)

Seduce with 70’s glamour. These vintage Gucci frames channel the glam of the disco decade. Clear plastic frames with gradient lenses.

7. Marc by Marc Jacobs Side Stripe Sunglasses ($ 110)

Sassy stripes. Marc Jacobs goes bold with thick square frames and graphic stripes at the temples. Plastic frames and gradient lenses add to the fashion forward nature of these shades.

8. Elizabeth and James Eldridge Sunglasses ($ 115)

The Olsen twins perfect the thick trend by balancing classic tortoise shell with a chunky frame. Pair back to an evening suit to capture Elizabeth Olsen’s celebrity style. Semi-transparent plastic frame with logo signature at top edge.

9. sass & bide Mendoza Sunglasses ($ 260)

Finish fiercely. The Wayfarer undergoes another transformation with these sass & bide frames. Metal frames with geometric cutouts all in a cool gunmetal gray.

Insanely Expensive Celebrity Accessories


The $ 100k Shopping Spree

Kim Kardashian and her mom recently went to Paris for a little shopping and spent well over $ 100,000 on purses at the Hermes store. How many purses? Only seven! One of the famous bags was reportedly over $ 30,000, which isn’t exactly a surprise since Kim is rarely seen without her $ 50,000 Birkin bag.


The $ 350 Face Cream

SK-II’s LX Revival Cream is quite pricey at $ 350 a jar, but it might just be worth it. The cream is made with their highest concentration of Pitera, which is a blend of vitamins, amino acids, minerals, and organic acids that work together to enhance the renewal of the skin’s outer layer. Obviously such an expensive cream isn’t realistic for everyone, but seeing as how this product is responsible for Cate Blanchett’s glowing skin, we might start saving up.


The $ 5,000 Mani

Rihanna looked amazing at this year’s Grammy’s, but it was her manicure we couldn’t stop obsessing over. The polish, “Amor 24,” is made of 24 carat gold and retails for $ 5,000! This is one manicure that better never chip.

The $ 68 Million Diamond Ring

The first of its kind, this all-diamond ring is worth $ 68 million! Suddenly, even the most impressive celebrity engagement ring looks puny in comparison…


The $ 600 Haircut

It was reported earlier this year that Jennifer Aniston spends over $ 140,000 a year on her beauty routine alone! One major contributor to that big bill is her haircuts with Chris McMillian, the man who skyrocketed her career with “The Rachel” cut. Now every time he snips her hair, she hands over $ 600.


The $ 755 Manolos

Does this silver slipper look familiar? It should! In the episode “A Right To Shoes” on Sex And The City, Carrie’s Manolo Blahniks are stolen at a party. In the episode, Carrie reveals her pair cost her $ 485. Today, they are sold at Bergdorf Goodman and will set you back $ 755! So while they aren’t in season and they aren’t vintage, this pair of Manolos has skyrocketed in value.

The $ 8 Million iPhone

And we thought our iPhone was expensive! This rose gold version is covered in diamonds (553 to be exact) and has a 7.4 ct pink diamond set in platinum. Dropping this phone might just cause us to go into cardiac arrest.


Natalia Vodianova looked as beautiful as always whilst attending the Design Fund Gala in aid of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London recently.

The Russian model wore a Hakaan Fall 2012 dress.

Her LBD with a pleated peplum with a leather trim was teamed with sheer black tights and suede ankle-strap pumps.

Pops of colour came via the pink lettering on her Olympia Le-Tan clutch and her ruby red lips.

A simple updo completed her formal yet chic look.

On a JetBlue flight from New York to Las Vegas yesterday, a group of passengers were forced to band together and subdue Clayton Osbon, a pilot who simply flipped out, behaving erratically, banging on the cockpit door and screaming out numbers.

On his radio show this morning, meanwhile, Carson Daly referenced the incident.

“Most of the people were on their way to some sort of security conference in Las Vegas,” he said. “It was like a bunch of dudes and well trained dudes… thank God.”

The Voice host then added, laughing: “With my luck, it would be like… ‘this is the flight going to [the gay pride parade] in San Francisco,'” changing his tone to sound more effeminate and saying: “Uh, we’re headed down to Vegas for the floral convention.”

The implication, naturally? Folks such as that would not have been able to bring down the JetBlue pilot.

A few hours after making the comments, Daly Tweeted an apology: “This morning on my radio show I attempted to make fun of myself & offended others by mistake. I sincerely apologize.”

Do you accept this apology? Do you think he should have made one?

Mischa Barton Launches Clothing E-Commerce Site

We haven’t seen much of Mischa Barton since her O.C. days. Personally, I haven’t gotten over the killing off of Marissa Cooper in the third season finale. Remember those “Free Marissa” t-shirts? Yep, I still have mine! There must be some other Mischa supporters out there because the 26-year-old actress has launched a boho-inspired clothing e-commerce site,, and it’s doing really well.

Many pieces, such as the Mischa Signature Jacket, are completely sold out, while others are flying off the shelves. And the collection doesn’t stop at clothes. You can also purchase handbags, body butters and, get this, nail polishes!

“Together with the help of my Mum Nuala, my inspirations are brought to life using elements of my personal style,” the actress told “Our collection has grown and developed to reflect the consumer and myself over the season, whilst maintaining a consistent theme. I hope you enjoy my designs and have as much fun wearing them as I did designing them!”

I may still be a little bitter about the cancellation of The O.C., but at least I can enjoy Mischa and her co-star Rachel Bilson through their design endeavors. I actually just purchased a pair of pumps from ShoeMint last night! And now to check out Mischa’s collection.

Will you be going Marissa Cooper boho this spring?
