For the Love Of: Chuck Bass

Chuck Bass

Let it be clear that there’s a clear difference between Charles Bartholomew Bass and Ed Westwick. Chuck has that ambition, desirable lifestyle and let’s not start on his style.

Us devoted viewers have watched him grow in Gossip Girl and our envy of Blair Waldorf has grown at the same, if not greater, pace. You know what they call it? Class! And that’s exactly what Chuck has.

As they say: “Swag is for boys. Class if for men.”

For the Love Of: Joseph Gordon-Levitt

His kiddyish charm has landed Joe (as he refers to himself on HitRECord) on the For the Love Of list.

We watched him rise from 3rd Planet From The Sun, oh was he so cute, to the recent release 50/50, which I am yet to see. Among his many works was his Golden Globe nominated role in 500 Days Of Summer.

Dear, I wish I was Summer. The scene where he TELLs her that they’re dating after his bar-fight is one of my favourites. Right after his drunken karaoke stint though. Don’t you just love his dimple?

I’m glad that he’s not one of the child stars who vanished after their premature fame. I’m keen to catch 50/50 as soon as it comes out in our movie houses.

For the Love Of: Rihanna

Recently crowned Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive, Rihanna added that to her many achievements this year.

Of course, she’s drop-dead gorgeous and her music has had us dancing the whole year. So I think she deserved the title.

However, we all noticed that her love interest in We Found Love looks a lot like ex-beau Chris Brown. Here’s what the 23 year old had to say about him:

“It’s incredible to see how he pulled out of it the way he did. Even when the world seemed like it was against him, you know? I really like the music he’s putting out. I’m a fan of his stuff. I’ve always been a fan. Obviously, I had some resentment toward him for a while, for obvious reasons. But I’ve put that behind me. It was taking up too much of my time. It was too much anger. I’m really excited to see the breakthrough he’s had in his career. I would never wish anything horrible for him. Never. I never have.”

It’s been long enough, she should just let it be now and stop provoking the reactions that everyone has. What are your thoughts?

For the Love Of: Kimora Lee Simmons

She’s “A mogul, a model and a mom.” And Kimora Lee-Simmons is – as she would say – fabulous at what what she does.

Her extroverted personality makes us love Kimora even more because she’s not afraid to say what we are thinking. Quite frankly, she makes me want to marry an Asian guy if our babies are going to come out like that! Okay, maybe I’m taking it too far there.

And aren’t her girls, Ming and Aoki, just the prettiest? Let’s hope Kenzo grows up with the gene in him. Djimon and those little tots are pretty lucky.

For the Love Of: Rachel Crowe

Singing Sensation

Singing Sensation

I’ve been so caught up with learning lately that I haven’t been paying my dues to Simon Cowell’s latest masterpiece, the X-Factor.

Well… It may not even be the show, but one person in particular. Astro’s good, he’s not the one though. I love Chris Rene, but neither is he. Leroy Bell? He’d make a sexy grandpa but I’m not talking about him either. The star of the show and the apple of both mine and countless thousands’ eyes is Rachel Crowe!

The girls got some lungs in her. Quite honestly, she makes me feel like a tone-deaf moose accompanying Celine Dion. What makes people (me) love her even more is her story: Rachel was a crack baby. She grew up in a crack house until the state took her away from her mother and put her into a foster care system. That’s how she came to know her adoptive family and thank goodness they saw the beauty in her! Not only is she beautiful, Rachel is full of character. Who can forget the “a girl needs her own bathroom” bit.

Whether she wins or not, Rachel will be the most memorable contestant on this first season of the show.

We love you Rachel.

For the Love Of: Giuliana & Bill Rancic



As a fan of the Giuliana and Bill reality show, it obviously troubled me when I heard that Giuliana had breast cancer in October.

It was heart-warming knowing that she had a husband like Bill Rancic to get her through things though, but bitter-sweet because of the struggles she’s had whilst trying to get pregnant.

What a strong and inspirational woman. She’ll be a true role model for her children. I hope they are bestowed with that blessing in the near future, they deserve it.
