80's Prom Recap Bday Bash

I was quite surprised by the responses I got to my blog about my birthday! I try to keep my blogs on my guilty pleasure of celebrity gossip, but every now and then, I do slip in a word or two about my personal life happenings. I can however connect "my prom" to diets and celebrities.

First and foremost, I did not find my dress. My roommate bought one off line thinking it would fit based on the size listed on the tag. I don't really wanna talk specifics, but the dress was way too small for her. Since she couldn't return it, I said I'd give it a whirl and put it on. At first I thought it was not going to fit. I thought we were gonna need pliers to zip it up the back. However, 4 sizes bigger than I normally wear, and I was sitting pretty in my Vanna White ensemble.
CONCLUSION: A size 8 in the 80's is now a size 4. If Marilyn Monroe was a size 10, she was actually about a 6 these days. The later statistic may be known by many of you, but I still hear people say she was a size 10 and I just want to clarify, she was what used to be a size 10.

Emily's dress did not make it in time. Booo evil eBay sellers.
Now that you've seen the dress, let me tell you something bad. I was so overwhelmed with not fitting into the dress and having to suck it in all night, I did some yoga and pilates in the morning. Go! That's what I say when I do things, that most normal people wouldn't do. I also decided to have myself a nice little breakfast, and a hearty sandwich. Ahhh dinner you ask? I honestly didn't even think about it. I didn't think I'd fit in my dress so I didn't have any. I had a small slice of pizza before leaving my house fearing that I'd be tipsy after one glass of wine and to avoid a massive hangover. CONCLUSION: A tight dress is not a bad diet. Oh wait, I forgot I also had a cupcake in there.

Me and some of the best dressed!

Me and my favorite Cape Cod boys, even if they might have caused a little rumble...

Me and my favorite sister. She's actually my only sister.

The Hills Season Premier Live Blog

"Paris was about to change everything..."

Stephan looks pissed, he def had wait for the girls forever or the camera crew made him do it a million takes.
Why are they wearing such uncomfortable shoes.

Voice over number one - "The Eiffel Tower"

Same old great tune, same opening so far... will Lo be in the credits??? Nope.

Now the title is "Paris Changes Everything"

Now we are skiing in Colorado with Heidi I am assuming. I wanna see Heidi Skii wicked bad. Her mom looks nice. She's no OC MILF. Heidi looks miserable and genuinely traumatized. Is she a good actress or does she always look like that because she thinks every watching hates her?

Great Quote
"I love Feathers" says Lauren
"You Love Feathers" agrees Whitney.

The girls arrive to pick up some shoes too late at colette. They act like it's a huge issue however they can just go back in the morning.

"Either we go naked or they go shoeless"
"Think at this point they prefer us naked. " At what point?

OMG! Heidi goes to Colorado, and the apt becomes a mess. Holy ShePrat! Obviously someone took the fat comments to the extreme. Spencers sister, got a makeover and lost at least 15-20 lbs.

Spencer shows up in Colorado. I don't think his Dad is very happy. Wow Heidi is a strong girl. She turned off her phone! Message box is full! Wow. Way to go Heidi. How did the fam not know. Heidi so knew, and that's why her mom and her went skiing. Back to the Crillon ball - Teen Vogue photo shoot. Seriously, what the hell is the Crillon Ball. ooooh the shoes... and The Vogue editor is like a total Madonna with just one name, Kimball. how do I get one of those, oh wait, I forgot everyone has one name on this show. How do cell phone's work in France. Audrina calls Lauren, to tell her that Brody has a new girlfriend! Oh snap. Audrina, it couldn't wait until the Lauren got back from Paris...

That took two days..." laughs Whitney. I love it. Lauren gives her the flash look of death. Haha love it. Bitch.

Heidi is such a good actress! Her mom isn't bad either. Spencer shave. Heidi doesn't know what to say still. Say goodbye until he shaves that scruff nasty.

Whit and Lauren are going to meet some guys they know. Yeah right, we heard they were casting way months ago via Perez. ew smoking Eropean men. have you ever played that game? Gay or European? Nothing against gay men, I love them, but all European men dress like they might be gay. Lauren is making eye contact with an old scruffy man. How old is this man, and why is Lauren wearing Bright RED lipstick. And this blonde dude has cartoon hair. EWWWWWWWWWW. I can't stand these men. God, they can't find better men. Seriously, am I suppose to believe the two girls are attracted to these men?

"Rahhh" weird noise made. Funny. I want to hear it again. Lauren or Whitney

Heidi looks like wax at dinner with Spencer and her Parents. Heidi si giving Spencer the boot and has her mom tells him. Now they are talking to each other thorugh her parents. This is so awkward.

Does Heidi still work at Bolthouse. Did Heidi ever work at bolthouse?

Now lauren and Witney are going out. Wow, I'm impressed with Lauren's sewing abilities. I can't believe they go out in their dresses or that they didn't have enough clothes. Of course they are going to get ruined!
This man is so now nasty... why is Lauren talking to him. He has his shirt unbuttomed to the middle. Eduardo is way cuter. And younger looking. But they are all listening to unst music. Now the nasty man is getting trying to make his moves. God Lauren please don't flirt with this man. They are making him a love interest, but lauren has no interest at all. She smiles funny at Eduardo. God how much longer, im tired and bored. Lauren doesn't want anything to do with this man. Thank GOD.

HAHAHA WHAT is this? It's a commercial at first that looks like Lauren and Whitney THE MOVIE in Paris! But no, it's a horror flick. WTF??? Hilarious. The Ruins.

Which Light Beer Tastes Best?

It's St. Patricks Day weekend! And if you are like me, it only means one thing- Drinking beer, a lot of beer. I'm not one to waste my calories (unless it's beer I admit), but why waste them on something you don't truly like? We decided to take matters into our own hands at and have our very own light beer taste test. Who came out on top? You'll have to wait and see, was it Bud Light? Miller Lite? Michelob Ultra? Heiniken or Amstel? We tested 7 total of the most common beers you'll probably find. We also clue you in on how each one stacks up calorie/percent alcohol as well! WARNING: I might be a little toasty at the end :)

Celebrities Are Just Like Us, Kim Kardashian's Butt in a Bathing Suit

Just when you thought celebrities were from venus and you were from Mars, exciting news that makes us seem a little bit "Just Like Us." Winter weight gain, childhood sports, and a weight we can relate to. Sure this article applies to the Diet Diva, but I'm sure ya'll can find something to take away that will boost your own self esteem.

Don't be so hard on yourself. Winter doesn't just pack on pounds around your mid section but it also packs the lbs on the largest lady humps Hollywood has to offer, Kim Kardashian's back side. I know, that was a little harsh, but who doesn't have a little bit of animosity towards this quasi-celebrity? What is she seriously famous for? Her BUTT! If you are famous for your ability to be a good singer, you should be praised for your angelic voice and chart topping acheivement. If you're famous for having a large booty, shouldn't we be able to talk about it's large success? Here is a recent picture of Kim's famous derriere.

Let me clearly state, I am not trying to be mean, or say she is the "F" word. I am simply saying, even Kim Kardashian gains a little in the winter.

Singing sensation Rihanna talked about her figure in a recent interview with Fabulous Mag, a Brittish Magazine. We've read many articles on Rihanna and her workout routine so we wont bore you with the old details but here are a few things that we relate to Rihannna with: 1. "I work out every day but I need a trainer to motivate me – I don’t find it much fun working out on my own," said the 20 year old. We don't find working out fun at all, so at least she isn't lying and pretending that she loves to exercise.
2. Her least favorite body part is her legs! "I’m insecure about them. Everyone wants to have slim, perfectly-toned legs and I’m the same. I do weights but I don’t want my legs to bulk up so I do a lot of cardio," she admits. I couldn't agree with a sister more. 3. When asked if size mattered she replied no. Rihanna claims that sometimes she is a size 2, and sometimes a size 4. In my opinion, she doesn't look this skinny but I guess the camera adds 10 lbs??? She tells the magazine that, "Being slim makes me feel better about myself. It boosts my self-esteem, and having a toned body helps with my job because I wear a lot of skimpy costumes. My weight fluctuates, but I don’t weigh myself every day. I’m 5ft 8in and weigh around 9st 7lb (133 lbs.)" That sounds pretty skinny, and doesn't look that accurate, but who am I to say she is lying? She sounds like she has a normal relationship with food and her body so I'm going to conclude that I like her.

If you thought Addison Shepard was the cover model this month for Shape Magazine, you're not alone. I totally thought it was Kate Walsh, but I was wrong! It's Jennifer Esposito from "Samantha Who?" She looks so happy. After reading the article I realized I have a lot in common with this fabulous actress. Like myself, growing up she was a gymnast, figure skater and used to play every sport there was growing up. Although my gymnastic career was short lived, I did used to compete is figure skating competitions and prance around in a glitzy leotard with makeup and my hair done, all before the age of 10. As a result, Jennifer dabbles in a variety of workouts. She loves to do Pilates and Yoga, as well as regular cardio and strength workouts. "Pilates really strengthens my core, which I need, but I feel like it also makes my legs look longer and leaner than weight workouts do." This quote is like my motto but I get yelled at by all the trainer I work with when I say this, unless they teach yoga or Pilates... Anyway, this is the first celebrity that seems to do what I do for exercise, and I would like to regjoice because she looks fabulous! She must be doing something right, so it helps me believe I am too!

Hillary Clinton All The Way!

Have you decided who you are going to vote for yet? Do you know if you are even a Democrat or Republican? This was something I didn't really look into until I was in college, but I'm not sure I would even know why I stood for one reason or another if it wasn't for my Philosophy Class on controversial issues. Like religion, we often do not question our beliefs but follow those with strong beliefs around us. This is going to be one of the MOST important elections of our time. If you have not decided yet, here are a few facts that will hopefully light a fire under your booty.

The Diet Diva is a Hillary supporter. However, since I studied journalism and political science in college, I will do my best to remain unbiased (CNN and FOXNews are really good at this.)


According to Hillary, the main issues that separates these two close competitors is their stance on universal health care. Hill believes we should have universal, Obama does not. "Well, there are issue differences. I am strongly in favor of universal health care and I have presented a plan to achieve that. Sen. Obama has not," Clinton told a Vermont news station. "And I know how Vermont is interested in quality affordable health care for everyone."

Sen. Clinton boasts that she has specific plans to make a change, and has a track record for producing results. I actually also learned that had it not been for Hillary, the morning after pill would not be legal. Another great promise, not so nutritious but Hillary promised that “Each year on my birthday everyone gets a cupcake,” in September on Letterman.

Back to health care, if you have not seen Michael Moore's movie "Sicko," it is quite the eye opener. Sure, you need to take in the fact that this is a Michael Moore video, but it's quite informative in regards to what exactly universal health care would provide and how health care currently works in the US. I find out current plan frustrating. Here is a clip from an an NYT article after one of the debates:

Mrs. Clinton's plan would require all Americans to get coverage and would provide subsidies to make it more affordable. Mr. Obama's plan would require only children to have coverage; his plan would require employers to provide coverage or contribute to a new public program that would make insurance more affordable to people not covered by their jobs or by the government.

“The only difference between Senator Clinton's health care plan and mine is that she thinks the problem for people without health care is that nobody has mandated - forced - them to get health care,” Mr. Obama said. “That's not what I'm seeing around Nevada. What I see are people who would love to have health care. They desperately want it. But the problem is they can't afford it.”

I don't think Hilary ever said people don't want health care, and since they were never forced, they haven't gotten around to it. Also, they may not foresee future problems. For example, if an uninsured woman who makes ends meat were to get pregnant, she may not be able to afford an abortion at that time (if she wanted to have one) and consequently doesn't realize that down the road, a child costs MUCH MUCH more than the actual pill or procedure. With Obama's plan, she still may not be able to afford it. Also, I feel like his promises are very vague. He doesn't seem to have an exact plan of execution but rather he makes very attractive promises. I'm scared that he will be elected and then have no idea how to implement his ideas - consequently failing to meet what he guaranteed. Did I promise I would remain neutral?
