Two hundred and seventy-seven days ago, Kristin Cavallari commenced work on her debut book, Balancing in Heels (formerly titled Balancing on Heels—Kristin’s first choice of title). At the time, she said the tome would encompass “really just everything” in her life. Many are still wondering what that means, but today Kristin offered a clue.

A few things come to mind when one thinks of Niall Horan: One Direction; the name Niall; the surname Horan. What about James Bond, though? Did you ever think maybe James Bond should come to mind when you think about Niall Horan? If no, you disagree with James Bond himself—007.

Us Weekly exclusively reported this morning that Serena Williams is dating Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. A joke? You’d be forgiven for thinking that, but “Exclusive: Serena Williams Is Dating Alexis Ohanian, the Co-Founder of Reddit” appears to be as real as any other Us Weekly post.

Okay.

Jordan Sargent · 10/27/15 02:50PM

It turns out Netflix really is going through with The Ridiculous 6, the Adam Sandler western that attracted a lot of attention for the wrong reasons earlier this year when Native American extras walked off the set after being subjected to demeaning stereotypes. In a shocking development, Netflix would rather not remind you of all of that stuff.

Five Gay Movies You Should See at NewFest

Rich Juzwiak · 10/22/15 11:58AM

Stonewall was a travesty, and Looking was canceled to many gay men’s dismay, but gay pop culture is thriving in 2015, provided you know where to find it. This year gave us Peter Strickland’s brilliant The Duke of Burgundy. (On the trans side of things many would also use the word “brilliant” to describe Sean Baker’s trans sex-worker comedy Tangerine, though the love people profess for that film boggles my mind.) Uptown, MoMA is currently running Stephen Winter’s exploration of race, sexuality, and exploitation, Jason and Shirley, while downtown at the IFC Center, Sebastián Silva’s gay-not-gay Nasty Baby opens tomorrow.

When Gentrification Gets Violent: Sebastián Silva's Twisted ​​Nasty Baby

Rich Juzwiak · 10/22/15 08:49AM

Nasty Baby, the latest movie from Brooklyn-based Chilean director Sebastián Silva (The Maid, Crystal Fairy), is one of the low-key weirdest things I’ve seen all year.

Cathey). Tension escalates and explodes in a final-act shocker that some will find to be a jarring tone shift.
