‘Being Human’ star to appear in 'Misfits'

Misfits producer Matt Strevens has confirmed that Gower will appear as a character named Jake in Episode 4 of the new series.
Series 4 is expected to begin on E4 later this month and Series 5 of Being Human will air on BBC Three early next year.
Yay! Love him!
(Tale #1) - Dude is really gentle, he's an easy lover. You can tell he's not into fu*king, but making love. I gave him a massage, admired his tattoo of the man, woman and child on his back, as well the 7 and star on his chest and the possum on his arm, played with his hair watched Mobb Deep performing on some late night show. He made me take off this crayola colored wig I had on (I was a weird dresser myself), and admired all the hair I had underneath it. He's a toe sucker and a FIRE-ASS pu**y licker! Andre is hung, and he knows it. He wears tight whites, too (so cute). So if you see a bulge in his pants, it's real, it's really real!! As for his technique, he's very easy going. I kind of expected some freaky-deaky voo-doo feather fanning incense burning 'Ommmmmm' sex- but no. He's like a boyfriend, he gives you what you want, gets what he wants, he's verbal, but not vulgar. He's just a grown man about it all. He's one of the ones you'd let spend the night. He's one of the ones you JUST MIGHT get up and cook some breakfast for :-) After leaving, my homegirls said that the band said Dre never gets down with 'groupies'. They kept asking if I modeled and said that I was real fly. Oh yeah, and he walked me out - damn, I should have stayed the night, but I was the Designated Driver, and still an all around 'Good Girl'. That was the wildest thing I've ever done.
How did you meet? - We met the year of 2004 at an after party for Outkast after they won their Grammy's for The Love Below/SpeakerBox. He approached me. This was in Los Angeles. I was next to their manager Blue and L.A. Reid.
How was Andre in bed?
I don't know what the other girl was talking about but he was really rough with me. He was really into my nipples. He does have all those tattoos that the other girl mentioned, except that was a long time ago and when I slept with him it was more recent, he wasn't wearing strange outfits or wigs. He did have these beads on his neck that he left on. He wore boxers and not tighty whities like the other girl stated. He must have changed over the years. He didn't lick/suck my toes but I did take his boxers off and he is kind of large. But I realized that his penis was crooked. Its not pretty at all. That turned me off. I just wanted him to put it in me already. He did kiss me and he did kiss me alllll over. He made sure to get me nice and ready. He put his fingers in me and did his thing. I wouldn't say he was a fire-ass p*ssy licker, I think that girl was tripping. I was put off that he would go there and not know me at all because I believe that kind of sex is better saved for a "girlfriend" type and he should know how to get down with a one night stand! He is an okay lover. Not great. And his penis wasn't all that. His body is skinny and he slouches. I forgot to mention that he fell asleep afterwards too. That part was so lame. Wait, and he was cheap! He was a real cheapskate too.
Do I consider myself a groupie?
No, he was after me! For all I know and with all the information I gathered, Andre 3000 is a groupie himself. He is a groupie that sleeps with everything and anything that moves. He is a groupie for his groupies when he needs to focus on his acting abilities because he is the whackest actor out there. Maybe if he's go to acting class he wouldn't have looked so stupid in Revolver and Idlewild. He needs to stop messing around and get his act together.
Shannon Brown (This reportedly happened before he was Monica's husband)
We weren't some random people & this wasn't some random tryst. There was such a build up to this moment...looks, words, everything..we wanted it bad. We met up at the hotel where the opposing team stays while playing in my city...he opened the door all cool we had small talk watched a lil tv then came the,"So yea what was all that shit you been talkin?" I instantly just lost it internally I was nervous as hell...cause I didn't want this to be a failed mission cause I don't get it in like that & I hate wasting my goodies. Well he stood me up off the bed started kissing me...I almost died!!!
Clothes started hitting the floor around us then he stopped & went to the bathroom I jumped in the bed & took off my delicates. He came back dropped them & there it was...it was HUGE!!! Never in my life had I seen something that beautiful. He climbed on top of me & started kissing me all over he was saying something but I was too gone to here it. He started kissing all on my thighs and getting me hot playing with it teasing the shit out of me till I couldn't take anymore I told him just put it in already cause I can't take it anymore. He put it in and I swear I almost stopped breathing this rush just came all over me I felt like a virgin all over again. It hurt but in a good way I couldn't help but bite his shoulder as he started to stroke me slowly taking his time...at first. Then the sh*t talking started.
I thought I was handling it till he started pushing my legs back & he hit this spot that I never knew existed. I started running and he kept pulling me back until he just put all his weight on me so I couldn't move. He just stared me in my eyes and kept saying,"Look at me stop moving you said you wanted it...take it." I tried I did but his d*ck was just to powerful...that was "Daddy D*ck" in all its glory...at this very moment I realized I had never been d*cked down right before...and after this I would NEVER be the same.
I felt like I was in a dream until I heard,"Baby what you doin? You keep running from me. Let me f*ck you...or you want me to make love to you? Is that it? Just tell me." Then he kissed me like no one ever had before I could answer then flipped me over & got me from the back.
I collapsed at first but I couldn't let him win I had to throw it back no matter how much I couldn't take it. That man f*cked me till I couldn't take anymore....toe sucking, hair pulling, ass smacking. Well as you can see I was served & I will forever be hooked. No matter who I'm with I always think of that night. My night with Shannon Brown was what wet dreams are made of.
Where did you meet?
I was on South Beach with my girls and were club hopping the beach. We went into a club names "Dream". In the club that night was D. Wade, Slim Thug, Udonis Haslem and few others. And there was also Ross. Me being a woman who doesn't really go for the bigger type men, didn't pay him any attention at first. But as the night went on and being in his presence, it's like he has a swag about him that captures you. At the end of the night when me and my girls were standing outside the club waiting for valet to bring our cars around, a guy tapped me on my shoulder and asked me to step back in the club for a minute because he wanted to ask me something. So I step back in and there he is Mr. Swag himself (Rick Ross). He asked me if he could call me and I said yes. We spoke for a few more minutes then I went to retrieve my care. About a half hour later I got a call on the Iphone from a number that was unknown to me. I answered and it was Ross; he asked if i was still on the Beach and I told him yeah me and the girls were getting breakfast at Denny's. He then asked me to come to his hotel on the Beach. I told him I would call him back in a few minutes after I arranged things with my girls and made sure everybody got a ride home, because I wanted to keep my car with me (you never know if you gotta jet out of there. So after a few minutes I called back and he gave me his location and I met him there.
What was it like?
When I went up to the hotel room door and he answered and at that moment I was thinking maybe dude is too damn big for me. He grabbed my hand and pulled me into the room. We sat and talked for about an hour and drank champagne (me getting tipsy and horny as the minutes passed). Then he asked me if I was staying the night, I was like the night is over, but I'll stay the morning. I told him I would stay if he behaved himself, he said ok. So asked to take a shower he said yeah why not. I didn't want to get in his bed smelling like a club when he's smelling all fresh and stuff. After my little shower I walked back into the room with a towel wrapped around me and laid next to him in the bed. He was smoking a blunt in his boxers and no shirt on. I was thinking big, but sexy. We were talking and bullshitting and then lights, camera, ACTION. He was feeling and rubbing me down and I was just purring like a kitty. This man rubbed and played with my clit until I came. Before I went for the boxers I said a little prayer, please let him be a decent size, but before I could touch it, he turned me over and slipped on a condom and entered me from the back. As he fucked me, I was like ok this bitch gotta have a big ass dick cause he was beating my fucking back out. I haven't been fucked like this in a while. He told me to stand up (he was already standing) so I had to get a peek at the product. When I looked back I was like Whoa!! Me being a sucker for a big dick, I kind of pushed him back slid to the floor and just had to give him some head, that dick was so big black and pretty, I couldn't help myself. From that point on Ross was getting fucked by me. I controlled the situation. His stamina was superb and when fucks, he talks dirty. he was very confident with his fuck game all the while saying "you like this dick" and the way he stroked this kitty, oh boy. It made me rethink a few things and no more stereotypes about fat boys with little dicks. The man is amazing on bed, thorough and no mistakes. He loves to put all his dick in you and he don't stop until he's hitting that spot. Ross has got to be one of the best fucks I've had in a long time.
I met Nicki Minaj at a show she had here in Wilmington, North Carolina about 2 to 3 weeks ago. She was performing her version of "Freaky Gurl" and me being a freaky girl, it turned my ass on; plus I'm bi-sexual so I just had to meet her. An old friend of mine knew the promoter who introduced us to Nicki. When she saw me she was ready to just sign another autograph and be done with it, but I shook my head no and bit my bottom lip and looked at her in "that way" (the ladies know what I'm talking about). She was like "Oh, We got a bad bitch right here". She handed me a room key and asked me for my blackberry and put her number in it.
I honestly didn't believe Nicki Minaj was the big freak she talked about in her songs about being bi and all that, but she was. I arrived at her room and she was masturbating while Lil' Wayne played in the background. (IDK what the fuck was up with that) When she noticed, she kind of moaned and spoke at the same time telling me to come eat it. I did it for about fifteen minutes and it felt like my tongue was floatin' in peach flavored pudding. When she came she tried to bit her lip but ended up yelling in pleasure anyway. She then pushed me on theand fucked ground and pulled some huge ass dildo/vibrator/strap on from under the couch and bent me over on the floor n almost stroked my ass to death. Home girl had me bussin several nuts. I gave that bitch 4 1/2 stars; because she was masturbating to Lil' Wayne.
Honestly, I would like to say I wouldn't do it again, but if she hit me up I'd come running!!
I think most ONTD users have read the numerous Drake stories and Jared Leto's 'hurts like satan' story. But, I know some don't know about the legendary Allen Iverson groupie tale:
What’s your story?
I had a one-night stand with Allen Iverson. He was recording his album and I happened to be at the studio. One of my homegirls was into one of his homeboys. There was four bitches there and he was like, "I wanna fuck somebody for the night."
Iverson told me he picked me ‘cause I was the only one "not up under his ass."
How was it?
He has the littlest, ashiest dick I’ve ever seen. It’s like, nonexistent. He looks like he should have a pussy. And it’s dry. I would give him four inches at best, and skinny.
So what happened?
We wound up back at his hotel. It wasn’t even worth taking my clothes off for. I ended up leaving before it was over. He didn’t cum, and neither did I, so that’s why I left.
How did you meet Method Man?
He hollered at me while he was filming a video. He picked me up later from the club after he left the studio and we went back to his hotel, and it was on from there.
What was he like in bed?
He talks a lot. Method Man is a very interesting character. He’s a beast in bed, he likes to spank and tell you to lay down, do this, do that. He’s got a nice size. He’s the real one. Very controlling. He likes to hit it from the back while he pulls your hair.
Why did it end?
It just did. I mean, he’s married. We’re still cordial, though, whenever we see each other.
Since he’s famous, were you worried about him fucking other girls?
I didn’t care. It was just a sex thing.
Were you more attracted to him as a person, or because he’s famous?
I was attracted to him as a person. I ain’t into no fame shit, it just happens.
Anne Hathaway won't compete with herself this awards season. As first reported by In Contention, a HitFix blog that covers the Academy Awards, Warner Bros. has decided to run Hathaway in the Best Actress category for her role in "The Dark Knight Rises." The move leaves Hathaway's buzzed-about turn in "Les Miserables" as her sole chance for Best Supporting Actress.
The decision is surprising, if only because many considered Hathaway's performance as Catwoman in "The Dark Knight Rises" the film's best chance at a supporting acting nomination.
"If there is going to be one, it will most likely be [Hathaway]," wrote prominent Oscar blogger Sasha Stone in response to a HuffPost Entertainment piece speculating on "Dark Knight Rises" acting nomination possibilities. "True, everyone thinks 'Les Miz' will be her big Oscar grab, and it probably will be but -- that doesn’t take away the fact that she’s still the film’s best shot at an acting nod."
As lead actress in "Dark Knight Rises," Hathaway is now competing against the likes of Helen Mirren (for "Hitchcock"), Marion Cotillard (for "Rust and Bone"), Jennifer Lawrence (for "Silver Linings Playbook"), Emmanuelle Riva (for "Amour"), Keira Knightley (for "Anna Karenina") and Quvenzhané Wallis (for "Beasts of the Southern Wild"), among others.

Hollywood icon Britt Ekland has praised Mila Kunis as a mature actress who won't let her love life and relationships get in the way of a successful career.
The 29-year-old actress is currently dating Ashton Kutcher and was previously in a long term relationship with Macaulay Culkin but Hollywood veteran Britt Ekland believes Mila will always be successful because she is so mature.
She told The Sun newspaper: "Mila is fantastic. She is lovely, petite and wonderful. And she's a modern, smart young person. "Her boyfriend Ashton Kutcher has a good career too but I think she has managed not to let her men dominate her life.
"A lot of young actresses have a hard time combining a reasonable love life with a career. "I think she's a good role model. She was a star at a very young age and has a very good TV background -- but converted to films very well She's 29 and has a certain maturity. But I have a feeling even if she was 21 she would still have that."
Britt also believes Mila is so popular because she is so down to earth. She said: "The whole idea that because it's Hollywood you have to be blonde and have big boobs and be inappropriately dressed -- I don't see that with her.
"Mila isn't a bimbo and she doesn't dress like one. Big handbags and expensive dresses aren't her thing. If you go outside acting and look at the Kardashian phenomenon, it's a huge brand and it's all about status -- Mila is the complete opposite.
"She either dresses up for the Golden Globes or the Oscars or she is dressing casually for herself. You don't see her go out in Lady Gaga-style shoes."
For those wondering who Britt Eckland is, she was a Bond Girl in "The Man with the Golden Gun", Charlize Theron portrayed her in "The Life and Death of Peter Sellers". FWIW I think Mila would make an excellent Bond girl,what do you think ONTD?

An intruder was arrested on suspicion of burglary after being found inside the home of 19-year-old rock heiress Frances Bean Cobain on Saturday.
According to reports the man claimed he knew Cobain and that she had given him permission to stay at her Hollywood Hills mansion.
Law enforcement told TMZ Cobain's house sitter came across the white male in his twenties when she returned home today.
The house sitter called police and when they arrived the man repeated his claims.
Law enforcement told TMZ that when police contacted Cobain, her representaives told them she had no clue who the man was.
He was subsequently arrested for burglary and is currently in custody.
Cobain purchased the upscale home with proceeds from a multi-million dollar trust fund set up after her father’s death in 1994.
She bought the luxury home in July 2011 for $1.825 million. The luxurious home is 3,350 square feet and boasts 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms.
The Spanish-style house was built in 1930 and designed by Carl Jules Weyl, it also retains a lot of the original architectural and decorative features.
In the realm of the horror film, if the villain doesn’t have massive claws and teeth, then they’re going to need some serious hardware to do their killing. This is a list of some of the most memorable killing implements in horror movie history.
Michael Myers – Kitchen Knife
Let’s get the obvious entries out the way first. While the Halloween costume wearing psychopath has dispatched a whole horde of hormonal teens and donut munching deputies in a number of creative ways, he’s a slasher at heart. His weapon of choice is a broad bladed kitchen knife, often shown on movie posters and DVD covers. He’s mostly fond of deep and violent stabbing as opposed to messy slashing like so many others in the genre.
It’s sort of amazing that he’s managed to endure for so long with such a simplistic signature weapon (not that it’s the only thing he uses), but it’s probably more the unnerving Halloween costume he’s wearing that makes him so memorable. That boiler-suit and William Shatner mask combo is just creepy.
Jason Vorhees – Machete
Jason is one of those love them/hate them villains, he’s had a lot of changes and ret-conning done to his background, going from corpse to mentally damaged drowning survivor and then to supernatural serial killer wolverine with a machete…. and finally a frickin’ cyborg. There are pretty much two regular features to this killer. One, he wears a hockey mask (okay that’s a lie because that starts in the third film), and two, his signature weapon is the machete. It’s not that he even needs the thing in later films as he’s shown as freakishly strong (seriously at one point he punches a guy’s head clean off), he just seems to like them and frankly he wouldn’t be the same without one.
Freddy Krueger – The Glove
This is the first weapon to actually have some sort of originality to it in the list. Freddy’s glove was his own personal creation. It’s a custom made prop based on a quirky kitchen knife design that was turned upside down and blunted and re-sharpened on the other side. The original had a rough, homemade look to it, a device of leather and metal, wielded by a brutal child killer. Let’s face it, he’s still pretty recognisable with just the burnt face and the red and green jumper, but he’s just not the same without the razor glove.
With Freddy’s supernatural powers, the already unique weapon was used for some surreal and creative kills, certainly a lot more entertaining than someone walking very slowly up to you and just stabbing you.
Leatherface – Chainsaw
Considering that this weapon is literally part of the title of the film it’s from, it’s pretty hard to leave it off the list. The simple fact is that despite the brutality and violence of the hulking Leatherface, he just wouldn’t be as scary without his chainsaw. It’s as much a part of his outfit as the bloody apron and the mask made of human flesh. The chainsaw itself doesn’t really get a lot of kills throughout the films, most of the victims get shot, stabbed and impaled rather than being chewed up with a chainsaw.
The Tall Man – Spheres
Technically it could be more accurate to call them villains in their own right but these little Swiss-army murder balls work at the behest of the tall man of the Phantasm series, regardless of containing the brains of his victims. The spheres are both ridiculous and insanely cool as far as horror weaponry goes, whizzing around and plunging into the skulls of their targets with an array of sharp, pointy (and often motorised) weaponry.
Pinhead – Hooks & Chains
Like Freddy, Pinhead has taken something horribly simple and given it a supernatural twist. His favourite method of killing his victims was to summon a swarm of hooks attached to chains and subsequently dig them into the person’s flesh from all angles. These chains slowly pull until the victim is pulled apart in a frankly unbelievable shower of gore.
The Candy Man – Hook Hand
The Candy Man is one of those villains you can sort of sympathise with, before he turned into a vicious murderer he was coated in honey and left out to be stung to death by bees. Despite this he’s way beyond vengeance killing and comes back to claim anyone who says his name and pretty much anyone else that gets in the way as well.
The bulk of his kills are brutal, slow and involve the nasty looking hook he has instead of a hand. There are also the bees… for some reason being unjustly killed by bees gives you the miraculous power of being able to unjustly kill other people with bees.
Someone give me some really good horror movie recs? Nothing rapeish please.
Miley Cyrus can rest easier.
The 40-year-old man convicted of trespassing on the starlet's San Fernando Valley property last month, a pair of scissors in hand, was sentenced today to 18 months in jail after refusing an offer of probation, E! News has confirmed.
A jury also found Jason Luis Rivera, who told police when he was arrested in the early morning hours of Sept. 8 that he was married to Cyrus, guilty of resisting arrest. Both charges were misdemeanors.
Cyrus wasn't home for Rivera's ill-conceived attempt at ingratiating himself to his dream wife, but another person on the property called the cops.
He has been behind bars since his arrest.
Miley Cyrus is scheduled to reunite with Dr. Luke for her upcoming fourth album.
The pair previously teamed up on tracks “Party in the USA” and “The Time of Our Lives.”
Born Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald, the Swedish songwriter and producer is also known for helming singles “Oath” by Cher Lloyd featuring Becky G [Simco Limited / Sony Music Entertainment] and “How to Be a Heartbreaker” by Marina and the Diamonds [Warner Music Group / 679 Artists / Atlantic Records].
The new collection by Miley Cyrus serves as the follow-up to 2010’s “Can’t Be Tamed.” That released debuted at number three on the US Billboard 200 Albums Chart and launched the singles: “Can’t Be Tamed” and “Who Owns My Heart.”
Other musicians backing Cyrus on the still-untitled project are Pharrell Williams (Mariah Carey, Justin Timberlake), Chauncey “Hit-Boy” Hollis (Mary J. Blige, Kanye West), Jean Baptiste Kouame (Tulisa Contostavlos, Wynter Gordon), Bonnie McKee (Katy Perry, Nicole Scherzinger), Warren “Oak” Felder (Toni Braxton, Marsha Ambrosius), Andrew “Pop” Wansel (Trey Songz, Nicki Minaj), Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins (Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera) and Da Internz: Marcos Palacious & Earnest Clark (Kelly Rowland, Jordin Sparks).
A few minutes into her visit with plastic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Epstein, a 40-something brunette pulls up a photo of Megan Fox on her iPhone.
But it’s not Fox’s nose or cheekbones that the patient wants.
“This is how I want my eyebrows,” she says.
The doctor smiles politely. It is the third time in a week he’s been shown a picture of the actress.
“I assured her that it’s not really necessary [for me to study the portrait], because I have the shape of Fox’s brows and the direction of hair growth imprinted in my brain,” says Epstein, recalling the client’s consultation last month. “The look is incredibly popular.”
Just as Jennifer Aniston’s “The Rachel” was the most requested hairdo of the mid-1990s, in this boom time for cosmetic enhancements, “The Megan” is the must-have eyebrow of 2012.
Powder and pencil can only go so far. With the bushier look back in vogue — fuller arches are the signature style of everyone from Kim Kardashian to Kate Middleton — specialists such as Epstein have seen a 30 percent rise in the demand for eyebrow transplants.
“Over the last two years, it’s got really big,” adds Epstein, who performs between 12 and 15 eyebrow surgeries in New York and Miami every month. “A lot of women want [to copy] the Kardashians, but Megan Fox is far and away the favorite.”
The painstaking and pricey treatment, originally developed for burn and dog-bite victims and later used to remedy baldness in men, is being increasingly used by women for vanity purposes.
And, for a new look, women can expect to pay between $4,000 and $8,000 for the process, which on average takes three hours.
It’s an amazing look to re-create,” he says. Using more technical speak, he explains, “The hairs go straight up at the head of her eyebrow and then go into a more crosshatch pattern as they taper off laterally.”
Manhattan health administrator Jana Jordan, 28, is certainly pleased with her “Megan,” which involved about 400 hair follicles being transplanted from her scalp to her brows.
The self-confessed overplucker blames genetics for her fine hair and formerly patchy brows.
Nevertheless Jordan admits to “going crazy” with the tweezers in high school, when the highly manicured “Gwen Stefani look” was all the rage.
“As time went by, and fashions changed, I’d see people with thick eyebrows and think: ‘Oh my God, they’re so great!’ ” recalls the Hell’s Kitchen resident. “I’d hear girls in the office saying to each other, ‘You have the best eyebrows!’ — but nobody ever said that to me.
“I would constantly color them in, but I was desperate for a permanent solution.”
She considered an eyebrow transplant after being prescribed the eyelash enhancement drug Latisse, which worked wonders on her lashes but not her brows.
“I’m so glad I did it because it’s exactly my hair color and it looks so natural,” says
Jordan, who had the surgery at Epstein’s East 56th Street office in July 2011.
The procedure took about 2¹/₂ hours while Jordan was sedated with Valium and Ambien, and received Lidocaine shots to numb the pain.
“My main concern was taking hair from my scalp,” she admits. “If you take an inch of hair from my head to add to my eyebrows, that’s a big deal.” She didn’t have to worry. There was no scarring, and the hair on her head grew back.
After the surgery, she was concerned when her fuller eyebrows started to fall out. The doctor had warned her this would happen as the follicles became dormant.
But three months later, the hair started growing. And growing. Unlike natural eyebrows, transplanted brows have to be trimmed because they grow at the same rate as the hair on your head.
“My eyebrows grew and grew and, by six months, I had this old grandfather look going on!” says Jordan. “I was too scared to cut them, and it took a lot of courage to finally do it!”
Some ladies go to the salon for that.
“They need to be trimmed regularly with scissors,” explains Janna Morein, resident eyebrow specialist at L’Institut Sothys spa in Midtown. But other than that, says Morein, they are just like normal eyebrow hairs.
Another hair-restoration expert, Dr. Alan Bauman, believes the trend for fuller brows began with haute couture models on the runways about four years ago. It reached the mainstream more recently when A-list stars like Angelina Jolie and Fox started embracing the look.
“It’s definitely become more desirable,” says Bauman, who performs between three and five such procedures per month, about double the number he did in 2008.
Homemaker Kelly Krauss, 44, of Tewksbury, NJ — a reformed overplucker — cherishes her new, fuller eyebrows and follows a strict maintenance regime of combing and trimming in front of the mirror.
Before her transplants, she used to wear a baseball cap because she was so self-conscious about people seeing her face. “I had bald spots all across my brows and scar tissue from picking at the skin,” says Krauss, who longed to have distinctive eyebrows like actress Brooke Shields.
Krauss’ husband, Charlie, an attorney, worried how much it was affecting her confidence and, after searching on the Internet, encouraged her to go ahead with the transplant.
“Fixing my eyebrows was the best decision I ever made,” says Krauss, who paid about $5,000 for the procedure. “I love the fuller look, and people say it looks very natural.”
Similarly Vinny Sarro, a 41-year-old mom of four, is getting used to her brows being praised after having the treatment in March.
“My eyebrows started thinning when I was about 27, just like my mom and my sister,” she says. “I penciled them in and colored them and did permanent makeup, but I wanted to experiment with something new.”
She calls the $5,500 cost of the surgery “money well spent.”
“It took about an hour and an half per eyebrow, and didn’t hurt at all,” says Sarro, of New Fairfield, Conn. “Now you can’t tell the difference between the natural hairs in my eyebrows and the ones which were transplanted.”
Bauman also believes more women are being drawn to the procedure because the technology has advanced so much.
“We use a minimally invasive technique known as Neograft, where the follicles can be taken out and re-implanted in the skin without the need for stitches,” he explains. “It just feels like you got a sunburn for the day.
“The recovery period is much shorter and, though there is a period of six to 12 weeks where the hairs fall out and reappear as stubble, [as the follicles regenerate] well over 90 percent of the transplanted follicles will grow new hair within six to nine months of the surgery.”
But he offers a word of caution. “People might ask to look like certain celebrities, but we have to work with their hair type and face shape to make sure they get the best possible eyebrow design for each patient,” he says. “A lot of artistry goes into it, and it is very individual.”
There’s also the issue of plastic surgery begetting more plastic surgery.
“I am really happy with my brows right now,” says Jordan. “My boyfriend doesn’t understand, of course, but I can see myself going back to have more hairs transplanted in the future.”
The Real Housewives Strippergate scandal left Teresa's relationship with her brother, Joe, in tatters -- and as tonight's reunion (the final installment) suggests, Giudice is apparently trying to force their parents, Giancinto and Antonia, to take sides.
"Every time they're together, she tells them this laundry list of terrible things about us," Gorga's wife, Melissa, tells Us Weekly. "They're more distant with us now. Joe [Gorga] feels like she's poisoned their brains. Teresa needs them, so they're standing by her."
Also standing by Giudice is her husband, Joe, who gets into an epic screaming match with his brother-in-law during Sunday's reunion show when he challenges his sister's claim that Gorga was "breaking Mommy and Daddy's heart" by steering clear of them.
"You've got to stop this, Teresa. If you stop, we can maybe be a family," Gorga tells his sister before she begs her husband to interject. "Shut the fuck up! What do you know about me, stupid?" Joe Giudice snaps back. Jacqueline then tries to step in, but is rebuffed by host Andy.
Though the Gorga and Giudice men were verbally attacking each other during Sunday's episode -- taped in September -- they stopped short of coming to blows. Explains Melissa Gorga to Us: "There were security guards everywhere!"
The tension between former friends Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita reached a breaking point during part two of The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 4 Reunion last week when Joe Giudice joined the h’wives on the couches.
After Joe explained his sketchy phone call in Napa, Andy asked Jacqueline to weigh in on the Giudice’s marriage. At first she refused, but after Teresa egged her on Jacqueline brought up the fact that in one of Teresa’s blogs, she insinuated that Chris cheated on Jacqueline.
In an interview with All About the Real Housewives, Teresa addresses Jacqueline’s claims at the reunion. When asked if Jac ever told her that Chris had cheated on her, Teresa reveals, ”Yes. She did. Chris was never allowed to go out with my husband unless they played poker at each other’s houses. I think they might have went out once the whole time I was friends with Jacqueline and I remember Joe telling me Jacqueline wouldn’t stop calling Chris. The only thing Chris is allowed to do is play cards.”
While Jacqueline allegedly keeps her hubby on tight leash, Teresa maintains that she would never impose such restrictions on Juicy Joe. “My husband is allowed to go out with the guys and that’s fine because I go out with the girls and we trust each other,” she explains.
And even though Teresa seemingly has no problem divulging her version of the truth, she admits that she’s not one to talk about other people’s relationships. “I don’t like talking about other people’s marriages but I’m not going to bite my tongue and say nothing while Jacqueline continues to talk about my marriage to strangers on Twitter,” she dishes. “This is not something I would make up because I’m not the type of person to do that.”
So according to Teresa, Chris cheated on Jacqueline. But is there any truth to what Jacqueline said about Teresa telling her that Joe allegedly also has a wandering eye?
Teresa insists, “I never told Jacqueline any of that. If I had proof of Joe cheated on me, I wouldn’t be with him. I’m just not made that way.”
As far as we know, Teresa Giudice plans to stay on The Real Housewives of New Jersey until Andy Cohen himself tells her otherwise, but at least one person in the entertainment industry thinks it’s time for Tre to give reality TV a rest and leave the show.
So who is this outspoken person encouraging Teresa to leave RHoNJ behind?
It’s Wendy Williams! The fabulous talk show host was on Watch What Happens Live! last Sunday, and after watching part two of the RHoNJ Season 4 Reunion, Wendy admitted that she thinks Tre needs to say goodbye to Bravo.
She explains, “As a family woman, family things do not get accomplished on reality TV. If she really loves her brother, if she really wants to keep her marriage together and be a person of the community for her daughters who are now in school, she needs to leave reality TV alone.”
However, even Wendy acknowledged that Tre giving up her spot on Housewives is highly unlikely. “She's in love though with the spotlight — it’s seductive.”
In Touch Weekly is reporting that Joe Giudice hit on Melissa Gorga and fawns over her, which makes Teresa Giudice insecure about their relationship.
A “source” tells In Touch, “When Melissa started dating Teresa’s brother, Joe [Giudice] would flirt with her and check her out whenever Teresa wasn’t looking. Melissa always told me he was a ‘creep.’ He’s so disrespectful to Teresa, but she turns a blind eye.”
Apparently, Joe Giudice gets a kick out of flirting with his wife’s sister-in-law even though it makes Teresa insecure and that “her biggest fear is Joe will lose interest.” The source adds, “Joe got a kick out of flirting with Melissa. He doesn’t care — he thinks he’s an attractive guy. He always complimented the way [Melissa] sings. He told her she makes the most beautiful pregnant woman. He complimented her style, too.”
It sounds like someone is trying to stir the pot further.

JAY-Z takes on the big brother, dad and bodyguard roles when it comes to RIHANNA.
He had a quiet word with CHRIS BROWN at one of his shows in New York last week and told the singer he would “finish him” if he ever hurts Rihanna again.
The Jigga Man invited them as a couple to the gig and is prepared to give Chris a second chance – providing he doesn’t step out of line.
A source said: “Jay-Z told Rihanna that if Chris is truly making her happy then to go for it.
“He invited them as a couple to his concert in New York and backstage he called Chris to one side and told him if he hurts Rihanna, whether emotionally or physically, it’s over for him.
“He’ll ensure it will result in the end of his career.”
Given how influential Jay-Z is, even Chris should work out it’s best staying onside with the rapper.
Then again, he’s not blessed with common sense, that lad.

Too little, too late? Tom Cruise could be set to leave Church of Scientology in bid to win back Katie Holmes
He's one of the most high profile supporters of controversial religion Scientology, but A-lister Tom Cruise could be leaving the church in a bid to win back his ex-wife.
When the couple announced their separation earlier this year, the religion was widely acknowledged to be one of the main catalysts behind it.
Now sources close to the actor have revealed that he might be becoming disillusioned with the church that has helped to destroy his marriage.
Speaking to The People, a friend has admitted that Tom might be questioning his involvement with the church:
'Now he's lost the most precious thing in his life, he sees that his Scientology beliefs may not have hurt his box office [success] but have ended not one but two marriages', said the source.
Tom joined the church in 1990, during his first marriage to Mimi Rogers, but the religion was blamed for the breakdown of of his second marriage to Nicole Kidman
'He lost Nicole and now his wife and daughter. He has always used the Scientology techniques but he has now realised they don't work in marriage,' said the source.
The Top Gun actor, who's been spending a lot of time in London recently, shooting his new film Oblivion, has allegedly been cooling his close friendship with the church's leader David Miscavige
'Tom and David have been attached at the hip but this relationship has deteriorated and that, along with the loss of Katie and Suri, is forcing his to question his role in the church. He hasn't lost faith completely but he is blaming Scientology for what has happened,' said the source.
Tom seemed in good spirits as he headed out in London on Saturday night, dressed head-to-toe in black he left Scott's restaurant grinning.
Katie has also had good reason to smile this week, as she opened her new play Dead Accounts on Broadway.

A formal Whitney Houston tribute is on the way. The GRAMMY organization hosted a big tribute that was taped last night at the Nokia Theater in L.A., and will air next month. Check out Jennifer Hudson channeling young Whitney, plus Usher, Halle Berry, Britney Spears & more celebrating the diva's memory. And, of course, Bobbi Kristina with her fiancee Nick Gordon...
Last night in L.A., celebs were on hand for the We Will Always Love You: A Grammy Salute to Whitney Houston event. And J-Hud stole the show by channeling one of Whitney's 80's looks as she performed in honor of the late star. And we're sure she did it right.
She rocked the stage with a medley of "I'm Every Woman," "How Will I Know" and "I Wanna Dance With Somebody".
Jenny also posed backstage with Britney Spears who was on hand, and Brit said Whitney's "I Have Nothing" started her own music career.
Whitney's daughter Bobbi Kristina arrived in a red Herve Leger dress and strappy black sandals. And with her new fiance, Nick Gordon, on her arm. Krissy switched out her sapphire engagement ring for her mom's diamond rings for the occasion. And the twosome held hands and got extra cuddly while getting teary eyed during the show:
Meanwhile, Halle Berry took the stage to salute Whitney in the show's introduction:
Gorgeous LBD for her.
LL Cool J hit the stage to offer up his memories.
And Taraji P. Henson and her questionable hairdo were there.
Usher performed "I Believe In You And Me."
And CeCe Winans performed with BeBe "Count On Me," which brought the whole crowd to tears.
Clive Davis was there to remember one of his closest friends, as well.
Celine Dion was also a part of the tribute, but had to tape her rendition from Canada of "Greatest Love of All," which was played on a screen for the audience.
"We Will Always Love You: A Grammy Salute to Whitney Houston" will be broadcast on CBS on November 13. The new reality show "The Houstons: On Our Own," premieres on Wednesday, October 24.
young, Black and fabulous
I've never made a post before so hopefully mods accept this! thank you :)
Oh, sorry, that’s probably not who you had in mind, but as the cover story explains, recent tabloid reports had some wondering whether RiRi and R-Patz were getting flirty via text message. When told about this, Rihanna apparently “expressed horror and pronounced it ‘the most bullsh-t ever,’ but she also seemed amused.”
Speaking of horrors: Chris Brown came up a few times over the course of the story as well. First off, Rihanna explains that she is indeed single and hasn’t been on a date in two years. (She says “no one asks.”) With that out of the way, she also confirms that she and Brown still share a friendly relationship — and that she doesn’t care what the public thinks of it.
“To the world, I feel like there’s no closure,” she said of the ongoing Chris Brown chapter of her life. “There’s some obsession that’s continued even throughout when we weren’t friends or couldn’t be friends at all. Hated each other. The world hasn’t let go. They haven’t seen any progress in our friendship, because they don’t see anything, really, besides the song.”
She went on to say that her “Birthday Cake” remix with Brown was her idea. “I was on a tour bus ride between two cities, listening to my album, thinking, Oooh, maybe I should make this into a duet. And I started coming up with a bunch of people, and his name crossed my mind. I thought, We haven’t made a song in so long together . . . it could be a little shocking.”
“I feel like as soon as they have closure to it, they will,” she continued saying of the public outrage over her friendliness with Brown, her former boyfriend who assaulted her. “But they’re not on the inside. They can’t see what I see, unless they’re sitting in my point of view. I guess I’ll learn to accept that.”
But apparently there is one person who does get her at least a little bit: Katy Perry, who Rihanna chilled with at this year’s MTV VMAs. The pair bonded over having to “go through personal things in a very public way,” she told Vogue, adding that they “genuinely care if each other are OK.”
