Another Amazing Candid Moment from Leah Remini

07/15/2014

It's no secret that Jennifer Lopez and Leah Remini are good friends, but it's great to know that they engage in typical BFF behavior -- making fun of each other. Lopez posted this playful Instagram video of Leah showing off her best Brooklyn dance moves to Jay Z before realizing that she's being filmed. In typical Leah form, she says exactly what's on her mind. Watch now:

You'd probably have the same reaction, right? We love that these super successful ladies still find the time for a girls' weekend. They were spending a little bit of time in the Hamptons to soak up the sun and catch up, as seen in another photo Lopez shared.

 

From the pictures, it looks like a pretty amazing vacation. We wish we were there, too! You can watch Leah and the rest of her family keep it real on "Leah Remini: It's All Relative" on Thursdays 10/9c.

5 Ways To Trick Yourself Into Saving Money

11/06/2013

Let's face it: We don't all have what it takes to live like the folks on Extreme Cheapskates. If reusing paper plates, peeing in bottles, and skipping showers isn't in your game plan, then maybe it's time to think of other ways you can save a few dollars. Thankfully, we've got some less extreme tips for you. 

 

Pay With Cash: Cash is easier to keep track of that credit cards, which we often swipe with abandon without thinking of their true cost. Plastic doesn't feel as real as cash, so we tend to spend and spend, swipe and swipe, without really thinking about what we're doing. So put down the bank card and put yourself on a cash diet. 

Make Your Savings Automatic: The easiest way to save is when you don't even know you're doing it. So set aside a portion of each of your paychecks to go directly into your savings account or a separate account. It'll hurt less if you don't have to do it manually — you won't even miss the money. It doesn't matter how much money you choose to set aside, just as long as you put it aside. Even if it's $100 a paycheck, it really adds up. 

Put Down The Starbucks Cup: Yes, we know, you can't live without your coffee. But a week of fancy coffee drinks can cost upwards of $25. That's more than a hundred dollars a month, which is well over a thousand dollars a year. On coffee. When you think about it like that, it's easy to reconsider cutting some if not all of your coffee habit out. If you really love the feeling of a fancy coffee in the morning, consider purchasing an at-home milk steamer for $25. Do-it-yourself, and save tons of money!

Check Your Subscriptions: Are you paying for Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime? Do you and your roommates or spouse all have subscriptions, even though your all living under the same roof? Why? Figure out what services you're using that overlap or offer similar enough features so that you can streamline your usage. That goes for magazines, newspapers, film and cable services, and club memberships, too. 

Try Keeping The Change: Keep the Change is a Bank of America where they round up your purchase to the next dollar and transfer the amount from your checking to your savings account. But even if you're not a Bank of America customer, you can institute a similar program for yourself, simply by being diligent about transferring the change you have — including small bills — into a savings account. It won't yield huge results, but it will create a small and steady stream of savings that will add up over time. And it'll show you the value of saving. 

Tell us: What are your favorite tips for saving?

Secret Princes Recap: Ladies, Lorenzo, and The Lone Star State

10/28/2013

It's time for round two of Secret Princes, our favorite show about the trials and travails of a bunch of royal guys looking for love — in all the wrong places. This season, the guys travel to Austin, Texas, on the hunt for "princesses" who will love them for who they are. Let's meet our princes, ladies!

Article-2425997-1BEC197A000005DC-115_634x437

We have: 

 

  • Prince Alexander of Russia, He's 34 years old and a direct descendent of the House of Romanov. Has a career as a photographer and lives in Kent, England.
  • Prince Lorenzo de Medici of Italy. He's 37 and an heir to the famous House of Medici.
  • Lord James Rennell of Rodd, 34, and the 4th Baron Rennell. He works for an event planning company. 
  • And finally, the Honourable Oliver Plunkett of Dunsany, 28.

 

Prince Alexander's mom is not excited about this adventure. Princess Olga, who lives in Kent, UK, is a little skeptical of her son's plan. She's not interested in a girl from Texas. "Oh, I think they'll be down to Earth. Very down to Earth."

Did we mention she's wearing an incredible pin of dachshund on her vest?

Dachshund-pin

Oliver Plunkett wants a girl who's smart, beautiful, and a "wonderful southern cook," though what a guy from Meath County, Ireland, knows about southern cooking is anyone's guess.

Oliver is kind of a nerd, from the looks of it. He likes video games, and spends a lot of times with his dog Commander Chow. That's kind of cute (and sad). But cute. "I don't think I've ever been in love," he said. Well, that's gotta change.

Lord James Rennell of Rodd is next to arrive at the house in Austin. Lord James is third to arrive in Texas but the first really, ridiculously hot one. His type? Cameron Diaz, Jessica Biel, Megan Fox. He wants a girl who is "her own person, but also head over heels in love with him, as well."

Our final arrival is Prince Lorenzo de Medici. And he is … amazing. I love his outfits. He has a maid, a driver, a tailor, a cook, "but there's only one thing that's missing -- love."

But one thing he's not missing: confidence. "It's very difficult to resist my charm."

With an ego like that, you didn't think he'd be happy with getting the last and smallest room in the house, did you? Of course not. After a brief dispute over whose family has the most rank, everyone decides to keep the rooms they have.

Then it's time to decide on their fake American names and a cover story. They get dressed up "American style," but go waaaaay overboard, dressing like a band of wacky tourists from an '80s movie. What young guy wears a fanny pack?

Bad-idea

That didn't stop Oliver from getting really, really drunk, taking off his pants and riding a mechanical bull.

The next day, the boys try and buy some new clothes, but they forget that they actually have no money, so they're forced to go thrift store shopping. Prince Lorenzo is not feeling it. "I can't get used to it that I don't have money," said Lorenzo. When he doesn't have enough money to buy everything he wants, a nice guy at the thrift store gives him three extra dollars. "American people are the most generous people in the world."

They realize they MUST get some jobs. "This is gonna suck ass," says Prince Alexander, who is suddenly realizing being in the real world is actually hard work. He's been working at a car wash for three minutes and he already screwing it up by flirting with the female customers. Lorenzo, too. He claims he is unable to wear the tomato costume required of him by the sandwich shop he's working at because it won't fit over his legs. These guys!

Pants


They try and redeem their first few days in Texas by playing a game of kickball - and strike out both on the field, and with the women on their kickball team. Finding love is going to be harder than these guys thought.

Questions for next week:
Will Lorenzo find a pair of tights that fit him?
How badly are they going to screw up each other's fake names? 
Will they finally break down and clean their disgusting house?  

Don't miss more Secret Princes, Fridays at 10/9 c.

4 Dating Tips From Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar

09/24/2013

The-duggars
Dating as a member of the multitudinous Duggar clan is anything but typical. Just ask Jessa Duggar, the family's 20-year-old daughter, who recently got in a relationship with 18-year-old Ben Seewald. 

The pair met at church, and indeed, much of their courting has centered around their faith. Per Michelle and Jim Bob's instructions, "They are enjoying getting to know each other and are recommending sermons to one another.”

Michelle and Jim Bob actually have quite a few ideas about dating. Here are there tips for families. 

1. Make it a family affair: Take an interest in who your kids are dating. And include them in family events, when appropriate. Jim Bob and Michelle monitor the couple's texts, which have mostly been oriented around discussions of scripture, and they invite Ben to join them on family outings. 

2. Check 'em out: And trust your instincts. "When a guy is pursuing your daughter, you want to check him out and see if there are any red flags,” said Jim Bob. “With Ben, there hasn’t been. He is very sharp. It appears like a match made in heaven.” 

3. Create boundaries: “Dad allowed them to do a side hug when they were officially courting,” explained Michelle. The Duggar family also believes that a couple should refrain from kissing until marriage -- and daughter Jessa agrees. "They agreed that would be the only contact they should have.” 

4. Find partners with similar values: “He’s the first one she has shown interest in that has a spiritual focus and legitimate calling about ministry work,” said Jim Bob.

The New York Times Catches Up With My Crazy Obsession Merman

07/09/2013

On last season's My Crazy Obsession, fans met Eric Ducharme, a real-life (well sort of) Merman. Eric is obsessed with mermaids and spends as much time as he can with a mermaid tail on.

"I do eat, breathe and sleep mermaids," he said in his Obsession episode. "It's my lifestyle, it's the path in life that I have chosen." But he doesn't just dream about mermaids, he's also made a successful business out of it. Eric sells custom-designed tails for anywhere between $500 and $5,000––Lady Gaga's even worn them! 

This past Sunday, the New York Times Magazine ran a feature on Weeki Wachee Springs, the Florida mermaid attraction that's hoping for a resurgence of tourist visits. Eric formerly swam for the mermaid show, but now focuses on making costumes. "I was there in an unofficial capacity way before that," he told the Times, doing costumes, choreographing routines, scrubbing the floor, you name it," said Eric of his beginnings with the show. These days, despite no longer being an official part of the show, he swears he can still "swim every role in the show."

He now runs a successful tail business, and his handiwork has appeared in ads for Target and Skittles. He makes the tails for kids, "but we also have women, and a lot of men too, buying the tails, because they love that magical experience of swimming in a tail. It's a lifestyle choice," he said.

But Eric believes that children share his passion for mermaids the most. "I think every little girl wants to be a mermaid when they grow up."
