To dad’s everywhere, you rock and thank you!!
If you are like me, right now, you are laughing. Yes, obvious news of the ‘no-duh’ has surfaced. Kanye has been hitting the piece of ass, fame whore above, Leyla Ghobadi, and cheating on Kim Kardashian.
Let’s look at the facts. While Kim was not pregnant, she was still nicely thick and Kanye was hitting it. in her first 3-4 months, she wasn’t showing but her boobs and ass grew. Kanye was hitting it. Kim then hit 5-6 months and Kanye suddenly decided to stay in Paris to ‘record’ knowing Kim couldn’t fly or travel. Kanye was very much not hitting that ass aka doing Kim. I’m not sure how this escaped Kim, except Kris kept her in the dark, controls her life and distracted her with a nickel in a bottle of water.
Basically, Kim is so ‘busy’ she didn’t notice the family poisoning the relationship and Kanye heading for the European Hills. That’s when fake tan & booby (like Kim), Canadian ‘model’ (I use this loosely) Leyla Ghobadi comes in.
Supposedly it was really hard for her to tell her story. This is why she released all her instagram photo’s to the press.And ran to Star Magazine to ‘tell her story’. Leyla is all about respect as stated below.
This is going to destroy the Kardashian family,” Ghobadi told Star. “It’s bad. It’s really bad. It’s just embarrassing. But if I were Kim and about to have a baby, I would want to know.”….“He told me . . . he wanted to ‘hook up,’ but I was concerned that he was seeing Kim Kardashian,” she told Star. “He told me that [the relationship] was for publicity and nothing serious.”…“We began to make out for a while — and next thing I knew, we were both naked and having sex,” she told Star. They had another tryst that October in New York — while the pregnant Kardashian was in Miami, Star reports. And the brazen mogul even tried to get her in the sack again this past weekend, the magazine reports. But by then, she knew Kardashian was pregnant and refused. “I would never do that to someone,” she told Star.
How brave and caring Ghobadi is! She wouldn’t sleep around with a baby daddy. She didn’t know Kim was pregnant for the last 8 months and just figured it out. Riiiigghht.
Well, all is well that ends in PR. Nice job stunt queens. You all get an Emmy. No one would have ever seen this coming. Stay tuned for Kim’s fake over reaction…..
If there is one lesson I have learned in Los Angeles, it is that men are just as worried about skin care as women. In fact, in Los Angeles they are often more high maintenance than the women.
Father’s Day, an evil spin-off holiday from Hallmark, is just around the corner. Dad’s everywhere will be suffering ‘man gifts’, like ties, Old Spice and socks.
Why make Dad suffer this holiday? Why not be original, health oriented and give your dad something that does not suck, is directly imported from the brilliant mastermind’s in Sweden and DOES NOT smell like or smell like Old Spice (like Old Spice).
Why go to Sephora and buy a an overly smarmy man product with 90 bi-products you can’t pronounce?
Instead, why not grab some Recipe for Men’s natural line?
Recipe for men, traditionally has had a huge amount of product for her. I could by something from a high end beauty store in their collection for my Dad BUT, I don’t think my dad wants to smell like vanilla, lavender and tea tree oil.
The people at Recipe for Men are mind readers. They decided Father’s Day was the perfect time to introduce new, clean, and fresh smelling products.
Recipe for Men tackles the common misconception that men can’t take care of their skin by giving them a simple product without smelly fragrances and natural ingredients. Easy to use each bottle comes with directions, and effects on the face. This is a no-brainer.
Behold a Father’s Day savior!
Although I love a good man product, I wanted to make sure this is actually worth shelling out for. It is. They are.
The boxes offer you way more than average product.They are nicely packaged and look sleek. All the ingredients are high quality. this makes it worth the price.Ranging between $22-48 Recipe for Men is very affordable for such luxe item’s.
Of course I needed to get up close and personal with this stuff to give you the skinny and deet’s on this new line.
The under eye gel is perfect, small and compact. Easy on, and yes, it works. I LOVE product that works. It has caffeine in it to minimize puffiness and black tea and zinc with a cache of other minerals to make the skin baby soft. In other words he’ll go from DAD to dude in no time flat.
The Anti-Shine Moisturizer is brilliant!! I do not want my dad walking into a board meeting looking shinier than Nicole Kidman’s forehead after Botox. It’s made for oily to combination skin so it’s got a thumb’s up and OK for every Dad out there.
Lastly the shave gel. I know that most guys worry that a shave gel will be slimy and unmanageable.
No problem there. It is easy to use and nice for a clean shave. You may even want to get yourself and extra tube. It has an easy to use pump top, comes out light blue to clear and smells really nice. There is a touch of lemon extract and menthol in it AND comes with anti-irritating allantonin and aloe. No razor burn and no MAN SMELL. And it’s not a tie or socks!
Even better it as just released across the country making it readily available online or in store.
Skip the Old Spice centaur, bypass black socks. If you thought Father’s Day was going to give you an aneurysm or drain your wallet, you are in the clear.

Since it’s Pride Weekend in Los Angeles I thought I would give a very large SHOUT OUT to all my gay brother’s and sister’s out there.
Here’s an awesome video of two brave brazen gay’s sending a middle finger to an anti-gay preacher. This proves, actions really do speak louder than words.
And to the couple in this video, I owe you drinks at the Abbey! #HellYeah #EqualRights
Life used to be so simple when we are all young, frivolous model’s. Editorial shoots, big money & sleeping with everyone. And so was the life of Naomi Campbell.
Then came Noami Campbell hitting 40-something. Although she is no longer a dainty, bitchy, flower, she is now a bitchy and violent,’seasoned professional’. Assaulting front desk people with phone’s, throwing Blackberry’s & keeping blood diamond’s, is just skimming the surface for this supermodel.
Enter Naomi’s new show ‘The Face’, and Luo Zilin from 1st (and hopefully last) season. A leggy pageant girl who won Miss Universe China, a la new model, signed to MIX Management. Zi Lin is now banging Naomi’s ex, Vladimir Doronin.
Let the game’s begin.
First, Naomi put a big cap on Zi Lin’s contract with Zi Lin’s money by killing her contract with MIX Management. They state she was let go due to ‘unprofessional’ behavior. We think they a little birdie (named Ms.’Thankyouverymuch’) might have had said something to make them can it. Something like, “That low-class, model, hooker is effing my ex and I will beat you in a back alley if you don’t let her go.”
NOW Naomi is brings the hate in round two. Naomi being more powerful than OZ, called up a few connection’s in China. Not only is she trying to get little Luo blacklisted worldwide, but she is asking her Chinese representation to show her the door.
Vlad and Luo are bummed and according to Dlisted (read more here) and the Daily Mail;
“It’s really sad that Naomi can’t leave Vlad alone since he just wants to get on with his life with Luo in peace. She’s had a very successful career so far and deserves better than being bullied by Naomi. At this point, what he cares about is protecting Luo and helping to undo the damage Naomi has cruelly tried to inflict on her.”
Someone need’s to get a hobby, and their name rhymes with ‘pain in the ass’. Take up knitting, do Yoga, drink wine to relax like all us fashion people, but STOP with the H-A-T-E. There’s no cosmetic surgery to fix ugly behavior Miss Super C.
If it help’s poor Luo and Vlad, I’ll lend Naomi my phone to throw at framed photo of the pair. Forget the wine, girlfriend need’s Xanax and a nap.
Being so busy I forgot to do a review on a great fashion show I recently was part of here in the heart of Hollywood at Supperclub. It was smart, well put together and all about the elite.
I might have not gone had it not been for the fact, the talented and tres chic, Adolfo Sanchez, had an installation there. Adolfo has been taking the international fashion market by storm. With several seasons worth of shows at NYFW, national coverage and of course a recent trip to Turkey and Western Europe, Adolfo Sanchez has broadened his lines availability and now works on couture as well.
Check out his line here, because they are soooo very. Adolfo Sanchez Designs
In fact that was the first thing I saw as I walked in the door.
After a meet, greet and air kisses Adolfo and I looked on while his well-kilted assistant adjusted the installation before opening.
And open it did. The Dripped Soiree was packed and everyone was there from stylist and business entrepreneur Eric Burns, of Prep Jerks, Inc., Marianne Geisha Of GGeisha Productions and the style crew that included my long-lost friend Malakai.
After an hour or so of mingling and drinking the crowd was restless. We were thankfully rescued by being ushered into the main floor. The 5 designers presenting; Madem Black, Staci Sherri, J Loren, Reckor and FROCK LA. Allof the designers were on their game but my personal fave’s that stood out were Madem Black, J. Loren and Frock.
With a full rubber and latex collection Madem Black kicked off with delicious diva’s in rubber, latex and PVC. Letting the imagination run wild she presented outfits with peek-a-boo latex lattices. One or two pieces even left nothing to the imaginations created from see through PVC and rubber. As it should when bringing the sexy. Between the spikes and latex everyone’s jaw appropriately dropped and Madem Black left us with a sexy taste in our mouth.
J. Loren brought the 60’s kitsch with gorgeous body-con dresses. With angular shoulders, J. Loren created sexy silhouettes bringing to mind Mad Men. Although some dresses were color blocked (and well) most were divided with loud prints and black lined figures, reflecting early 60’s sectional couture. A must have in my wardrobe. It was indeed, perfect skinny girl clothing.
Frock LA, was devastating.
They ended the show with a presentation that rivals most NYFW shows. Classic elegance, embodied in a ethnic chic. Tall, lengthy girls taking the time to not only show off their lengthy gowns but pose in the moment. Sadly I only got the first few models on the runway in video but they ended the show in absolute perfection.
Huge thanks to all involved, especially GGeisha Marianne and crew. I will be covering Frock LA when Dad’s Day is over.
Check out some of the random shots I got over the evening in the gallery below.
Soo Joo took the cover this month of Vogue Japan presenting something the Japanese have been celebrating for thousands of year. Gorgeous Asian women and martial arts.
Add an editorial by the talented Hyea Won Kang, with Soo Joo in black and white designs with classic martial art poses. The talent, the supermodel and a very cool take on exercise is a win win for Vogue Japan. (I must learn Japanese!)
Classic tradition meets modern monochrome. And as you all know who do read this I am all about modern monochrome.
