Fashion Fails: Miley Cyrus, Lisa Lampenelli, Melanie Brown, More

November 17th, 2013 12:03pm EST
Miley Cyrus
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!

Miley Cyrus actually covered herself for once, but I don't love those odd sleeves. They look like giant suction cups, or maybe from an outfit in a Dr. Seuss book.

Lisa Lampanelli looks like she lost some weight, which is great, but she also shaved the side of her head. Perhaps it's part of her Miley Cyrus impression?

If there's anything worse than animal print, it's animal print in colors not seen in nature. The ugly resul...

Lisa Lampanelli Shows Off Her Incredible Weight Loss On 'David Letterman'

November 17th, 2012 8:30am EST
Lisa Lampanelli
Lisa Lampanelli has been steadily losing weight over the past few months, and she showed off her slim and trim figure outside "The Late Show With David Letterman" in New York City on Thursday.

The comedienne has struggled with weight for many years and earlier this year she and her husband each decided to have a gastric sleeve procedure. Doctors removed about 80 percent of her stomach so she can only consume about a cup-and-a-half of food three times a day.

She told "Good Morning America" in July, "You really have to be conscious about everything you put in your mouth. You have to exerci...

Lisa Lampanelli
After undergoing extreme weight-loss surgery, comedienne Lisa Lampanelli has dropped three dress sizes. Over the years the star has struggled with her weight and finally decided to have a gastric sleeve procedure.

Lampanelli, 51, now says she is focused on making healthy lifestyle choices.

On Tuesday she appeared on "Good Morning America" and explained, "It's called the gastric sleeve, which means they (doctors) remove about about 80 percent of your stomach, which means you can eat about four ounces three times a day, which is about a cup-and-a-half of food.

Clay Aiken, Arsenio Hall Advance to Finale
Previously, on Celebrity Apprentice: the Final Five was whittled down to four, when Teresa Giudice project managed her team’s assignment to a loss. But the Donald was not finished yet; he brought in last season’s Celebrity Apprentice winner John Rich, and runner up Marlee Matlin, to interview Arsenio Hall, Aubrey O’Day, Clay Aiken and Lisa Lampanelli. Based on John and Marlee’s recommendations, he fired Lisa. This week, we’ll find out the second person chopped, and have one last challenge. Next week, the winner will be chosen. Ready?

The Celebrity Apprentice
Last well, the celebrities were tasked with writing a jingle for Good Sam’s roadside assistance program. On Unanimous, Aubrey O’Day pushed her ideas forward, and teammates Teresa Giudice and Project Manager Arsenio Hall let her. On Team Forte, Dayana Mendoza micromanaged teammates Clay Aiken and Lisa Lampanelli to a loss, and it was Dayana’s turn, as Project Manager, to be fired.

This week on, Celebrity Apprentice: It’s the third to last episode of the series (ends May 20,) so hold on to your hats, folks. We have a task, followed by a Board Room firing, followed by an unexpected visit by t...

Dayana Mendoza Takes Her Final Cat Walk
Last week on Celebrity Apprentice: The teams created a slogan and display for Trump’s new scent for men. Although Dayana Mendoza’s photo on the banner was praised, she was brought back into the Board Room for the sixth time. However, it was Penn Jillette’s losing slogan that led to his firing.

Aubrey O’Day, Teresa Giudice and Arsenio Hall are all that remain of Team Unanimous, while Clay Aiken, Lisa Lampanelli, and Dayana are the last of Team Forte. Aubrey’s overjoyed at her win for her charity GLSEN. Clay’s devastated to lose Penn, as Penn was a strong player. Dayana knows she’ll have to ...

Last week on Celebrity Apprentice, the teams were asked to create puppets, and to perform for Brian Henson’s “Stuffed and Unstrung,” a live, improv puppet show aimed at adults. As Project Manager for losing team Unanimous, Paul Teutel Sr. was sent home, while Lisa Lampanelli, PM for Forte, received a check for $20,000.00 for her charity, Gay Mens Health Crisis.

After the Board Room visit, Lisa vowed that she would try to be nice when dealing with Dayana Mendoza, despite their ongoing feud. Arsenio Hall was disappointed that Paul, a successful businessman and engineer, was fired over Teres...

THE CELEBRITY APPRENTICE -- 'Puppet Up'
Previously, on Celebrity Apprentice: Teresa Giudice’s team Unanimous won the competition for best ‘commercial.’ It was Lou Ferrigno and his 110% effort that left, after a nasty exchange of words with Lisa Lampanelli.

Dayana Mendoza and Lisa returned to the suite after the firing. Clay Aiken took offense to Lisa’s triumphant, “We did it.” Clay wonders about Lisa’s attitude. With only three members left on Team Forte, everyone wonders if someone from Team Unanimous will be sent over to the enemy. Aubrey O’Day hopes that Clay and Arsenio Hall, who have become good friends, will be split up.

The Celebrity Apprentice
Last week’s double episode cost the teams Debbie Gibson and Dee Snider, and saw Aubrey O’Day walk out after an overwrought Board Room blowout between Aubrey and Arsenio Hall.

The drama continues this week, as we return to the Board Room aftermath. Arsenio, still shaking with anger and emotion, doesn’t know if he could handle Aubrey’s return. Lisa Lampanelli and Penn Jillette, returning from the Board Room, are shocked to hear about Aubrey as well. Lisa thinks the team should be worried – if Aubrey stays away, she feels their team has no chance.

Arsenio explains that he was over the top in...

During an extended three hour episode, I watched the Celebrity Apprentice last night. And I only fell asleep twice! Here’s what happened:

Last week: The teams put together parties to launch a new line of mock tail drinks. The men of Unanimous won the challenge with their beach party, and the women of Forte suffered the loss of Patricia Velasquez, who was fired. Aubrey cried crocodile tears, as she had hoped Dayana Mendoza would be the one to leave. Clay Aiken brought checks worth $50,000.00 to the National Inclusion project.

Last week, on Celebrity Apprentice: The teams were tasked with making a viral video. Unanimous’ male team was led by Lou Ferrigno, and the female Forte team by Tia Carrere. The men’s earlier frustration with Lou was forgotten when Clay Aiken and Arsenio Hall pointed out that Penn Jillette’s brainstorming style was not supportive of Lou’s management. Penn suddenly found himself being put forward as a possible target for firing. But the women of Forte weren’t happy either, and Tia, as Project Manager, took responsibility and sacrificed herself for her team when they lost the challenge.

Last week, on The Celebrity Apprentice, the women’s FORTE team won the challenge, and the men of UNANIMOUS got gut punched when not one, but TWO of their team were fired. Both Adam Carolla, Project Manager, and Michael Andretti hit the road when Trump decreed that Adam’s biggest failing was not showcasing Michael’s brand power in a challenge revolving around cars. Oh, and for not naming names in the boardroom, naughty Adam. But the ladies had a few tussles that may impact the solidarity of their group before too long. Patricia Velasquez interviewed that the ‘back stabbing and lies’ must sto...

'Celebrity Apprentice' Recap – 'Nice Shot, Oswald' - A Lesson Is Taught

The Celebrity Apprentice
Last week, the teams designed a ‘living window display’ for Ivanka Trump’s new fashion collection. The ladies team, FORTE, won, although the men of UNANIMOUS had a strong display and great branding ideas. George Takei took one for the team, although Lou Ferrigno was once again put forward as a weak link. The men feel that Lou presents himself as a go getter offering 110% when in the Board Room, but when actually working on a challenge, only offers ideas that center around his being the Hulk.

Dayana Mendoza had been Project Manager for FORTE, so she received the $20,000.00 donation for her...

Last week, the Celebrities worked a Medieval Times angle. Lou Ferrigno hulked out when Penn Jillette mentioned his lack of focus, but it was Victoria Gotti who got the axe. Can the ladies of Forte pull it together, now that Victoria is gone, or will the men of Unanimous carry on their winning streak?

After the firing, Lisa Lampanelli swore she’d never Project Manage again, but she’s more determined than ever that Forte kick some Unanimous butt. Penn Jillette had the pleasure to present his team’s win of $40,000.00 to Linda Smith for his charity “Opportunity Village”.

Last week, the celebs pushed ‘sammiches,’ making a record profit donation for any first week of the series, when American Chopper star Paul Teutel Sr. slightly overcharged one customer to the tune of $305,000. The men of Unanimous rocked, and walked, leaving the ladies in their dust. Although none of the women on Team Forte seemed to like Victoria Gotti’s attitude, they, and even The Donald, were not about to get on the Mob Princess’ bad side. So they axed the quietly classy, and original Supermodel Cheryl Tiegs. Looks like the ground rules have been laid; win by any means, and don’t worry...

“18 celebrities, 18 egos – all fighting to become The Celebrity Apprentice” Yep, that’s our Donald, rallying the troops. As the celebs gather, it’s hard not to share in Trump’s vision of a world ruled by his chosen few, those ‘used to be’ and ‘almost were’ C and D list celebrities who, armed only with smartphones, can strong arm their wealthy friends and fans into financially backing their charities.

What could be more frightening than Trump’s bombastic boasting? Each of the celebrities declaring their intention to win, while tiny mafia princess Victoria Gotti bluntly says “you have to wa...

Lisa Lampanelli is one of the funniest people in the world and you probably already knew that from watching her on many a televised Roast. Her stand-up comedy is filled with bold honesty and is brilliant in that it allows her to lovingly be known as the 'Queen of Mean.' She goes after every type of person in the world with jokes that are downright gut splittingly funny and has written a hilarious memoir entitled 'Chocolate, Please' that talks about the seemingly endless number of "chocolate daddies" that she's dated, her struggles with compulsive eating and her upbringing in a crazy Itali...

The ultimate politically-incorrect comic, Lisa Lampanelli, a.k.a. the Queen of Mean, stars in her first HBO comedy special in January with an hour of outrageous and shockingly scathing humor, taped before a live audience at the Wells Fargo Performing Arts Center in Santa Rosa, CA.

Having made her mark on the comedy world for her show-stealing routines at a series of Friar's Club roasts (some of which actually made it to TV with a little bit of censoring), Lampanelli will get the royal treatment from HBO this month, holding nothing back as she skewers the audience (don't sit in the fi...

We are already midway through summer and the red carpet fun fair is a never ending saga. Celebrity fashion does not stop for any season. Summer time, by far, is when Hollywood types of all sorts come out with guns a blazing. Some leave us with midsummer dreams, while others leave us with midsummer nightmares.

Midsummer dreams

The couple that gets 'jiggy wit it,' dresses well together. The couple that is happy together is a matching pair. This is always the case for Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith; obviously, there was no exception on June 30 at the Hollywood premiere at G...
