Freezer-burned weekend left-overs
OFF THE RACK
LIFE & STYLE
Cover: The many-headed Kraken made entirely of female Kardashians has destroyed another man. It's Khloe's husband, Lamar Odom, who has had his man-parts handed to him in a box and who will be discarded shortly. Other victims are Bruce Jenner, Kim's not-really husband, brother Rob, Kourtney's guy, Scott, and Reggie Bush. And we don't know how many other men are, this very moment, kept in sheds and dungeons, unable to fight back against this monstrous regimen of women.
This week in wedding plans: "The whole world is wondering" about Brad and Angelina's wedding. It's so true. People who usually spend all their time trying not to die from starvation took time out to wonder if it will be a "private, intimate affair" in France and whether George Clooney will throw the bachelor party.
Cover: The women on this cover may not be man-destroyers, but they must still be pilloried. They are too skinny because they subsist on laxatives and count calories like Kim Kardashian counts Kanye West's money. Next week: Women with ugly cellulite who need to put down the ice cream and chew on some kale.
This week in life-coachery: Demi Moore's new bestest best friend is none other than Oprah. Because apparently Oprah isn't so busy desperately trying to make people watch her network that she doesn't have time to listen to Demi cry about Ashton's cheating ways.
This week in feuds: Taylor Swift is very upset Anne Hathaway got to be in Les Misérables and she didn't. Watch out, Anne Hathaway, next time you see Taylor, she'll trip you and then act totally surprised you fell.
Cover: Katie Couric found out that someone she used to date, but is no longer dating, cheated on her while they were dating. Moving on.
This week in, of course, poor, sad Jen is crying: You know it. When Jennifer Aniston heard the news of the engagement of the decade, she "collapsed, " according to this delightful piece of fictional fiction. We also learn that when Justin Theroux came home that fateful day she got the news, Jen was "poring over mementoes" of her life with Brad Pitt. Of course she was. A huge fight ensued, but now everything is fine ... except that Jen's "never stopped seething" over Angelina Jolie. That's a ton of years of seething. You'd think that it would leave scars and burns and bowel discomfort, but apparently not.
