Fashion Fails: Rihanna, Adrien Brody, Solange Knowles, More

March 2nd, 2014 1:03pm EST
Rihanna
It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

Rihanna is covering up for once, and in a very odd way. She wore this black outfit that had a thick fur bar across her chest. Pretty much the opposite of what she wore to the Crazy Horse Club.

Adrien Brody was a red beacon in the darkness in this shiny three-piece suit. The reflective satin finish was just too much for us.

Solange Knowles is a constant fashion offender, and this white jumper splashed with blue has her lock...

'The Office' Recap: 'Threat Level Midnight'

February 19th, 2011 2:22pm EST
The Office
We know Michael loves to imagine himself as a movie star. But are we prepared to see a movie written by, directed by and starring him?

The episode, ‘Threat Level Midnight’ (great title, Michael) is all about the office folk watching Michael’s movie. Of course the movie is pathetically bad; I just wish it was a little more… hilariously bad. It does have its moments: Jan the Lounge Singer (Jasmine Windsong) taking an arrow to the throat was unexpected. And Karen’s stilted line reading (“Ever banged an entire bachelorette party, baby?) is a hoot.

Jim’s performance as Goldenface is somewh...

'The Office' Recap: 'Sex Ed'

Dwight: “You need to contact every woman you’ve ever been with and notify them of your infestation of herpes. It’s the right thing to do.” That about sums up “Sex Ed.” Simple and silly.

The opening tag – featuring Dwight luring immigrant workers by courting, “Necessito un bueno worker!” falls flat. Dwight’s creepiness is usually funny, but in this instance, his partnership with Moz to fool illegal aliens and not pay them is just… uh, creepy? And not funny…

Back at the office, Michael saunters in with upper lip hair that would put Harry Houdini to shame. It’s soon revealed, however, ...

"The Office" star Mindy Kaling is considering following Steve Carell's example and quitting the series to focus on her film career.

The funnyman has already announced the show's upcoming season will be his last, and the actress admits she's thinking twice about returning to the series as love-struck Kelly Kapoor.

She explains, "I can see this season being my last. Right now, I’m hankering for new adventure...

Geez, when did everyone get so cynical?"

He asks if how he should prepare emotionally for the procedure and if there is anything he can do to make it more pleasurable for himself and his doctor and if he should have a safe word.

Last week Michael told Andy about the affair between Dwight and Angela now this week it's as if nothing ever happened.

Understandably no one would want to directly address painful things and it seems as if loose ends were tied up as both men simultaneously dumped Angela. Yet bringing up awkward and inappropriate things is a hallmark of this show.
