Posted by Sasha Brown-Worsham on February 9, 2011 at 1:25 PM Comments (4)| Likes (5) Share 18 Queen Rania of Jordan is undoubtedly an international celebrity. Most of this is due to her marked beauty and taste for fine things. But her lavish lifestyle may soon come to end as Jordan is showing some signs that it could be the next Egypt or Tunisia. Recent revolts, like the ones that took out Tunisia's Zine El Abidine Ben Ali and currently threaten Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak, have been played out on...

    When I had a chance, I took a look at some of the beautiful rooms in the White House; I was so excited just to be there. When I looked around, I could feel all the history of the place and I felt like I was having flashbacks into history just by being in these rooms. It was thrilling! When I met President Obama, he shook my hand and told me that he was a big fan of mine. Wow! This made me feel so humbled and honored. I was practically speechless and just mumbled to him that it was...

    When I interviewed Eric Wisemen, CEO of VF Corp, at the ICR Xchange retail conference in Orange County, I asked him if it was difficult for one of his company's brands, Wrangler, to stand by Brett Favre after the football legend's sexting scandal. "Brett's been terrific for our brand for a long period of time. He speaks to the Wrangler consumer," Wiseman told me, before adding, "We're obviously figuring out where to go from here." He might want to read a study by Ace Metrix which suggests that celebrity endorsements can do more harm than good. "Our study of more...

    Is Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid secretly a Lady Gaga superfan? On Saturday, Reid twice messaged the pop star on Twitter — shortly before the Senate voted to repeal the "don't ask, don't tell" policy banning gays from serving openly in the military and immediately after. In fact, his first Twitter message after the vote was to Gaga, who had previously lobbied him and other senators via Twitter to overturn the controversial policy. "We did it! DADT is a thing of the past," Reid wrote to Gaga.

  • Barack Obama's dumb 'Daily Show' Jon Stewart appearance and the President's diminishing brand

    President Barack Obama should make the most of his "Daily Show" appearance on Wednesday night - charming the pants off Jon Stewart and the crowd, as he did when he showed up there two years ago. It's a terrific show, Stewart is a great interviewer and Obama makes good television. Then, the President should cancel all future trivial media appearances. While they may have kept him personally popular, in broad terms they've degraded the Obama brand. Obama's handlers were supposed to be smarter than this. They were supposed to use his celebrity strategically to advance his agenda. Instead, they've been...

Durban’s King Shaka International Airport was temporarily shut down in the hours leading up to Wednesday’s game due to an unplanned influx of air traffic traveling from Cape Town, where the first semifinal was held Tuesday night. The anger of fans was only intensified by claims that delays of more than five hours, plus redirected flights, were caused by the addition of specially chartered services for...

    SHANGHAI (Hollywood Reporter) - Action hero Jet Li gives a respectable turn as a terminally ill father grooming his autistic son to survive on his own in "Ocean Heaven" -- a decent, if orthodox job by Xue Xiaolu. Film Xue off-sets some of the wholesome soppiness of this genre by keeping the tone light, the story simple and steered clear of grueling ordeals. Compared with another father-son story "Together," which she co-scripted and Chen Kaige directed, it is less melodramatic and artificial. Set mostly in a marine park in Qingtao province, its interpretation of autism owes less to "Rain Man"...

We need look no further than the bewildering popularity of the reality-TV show Jersey Shore and the instant celebrity garnered from its inhabitants despite their complete absence of qualifications. Though, admittedly, the bar for “success” in America these days is set scarily low; in the case of Jersey Shore and most of the famous-for-being-famous world), dark tans (haven’t they heard of melanoma?), large breasts, muscles, and ‘tude seem sufficient. It is safe to say that these New Jersey denizens...

Wright dated Paisley in 2000 and called off the romance when the "Celebrity" hit maker started to get serious and talk about marriage. But, rather than sit down with her one-time beau and tell him the truth, Wright simply cut the heartbroken star out of her life.

A very unfunny $8.15 million, which doesn't even include interest and legal fees.

    Charlie Sheen has been accused of a felony and could face three years in jail. So why is he being given a free pass by the press and Hollywood?
