Jessica Alba at the premiere of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For in L.A. (8/20)
So you know that company that Jessica Alba started a few years ago? Turns out that it's a massive success and she's set to make hundreds of millions of dollars from it. I'm not kidding. This is real life. The company is going public and has already raised tens of millions of dollars. For reals. Swear to God. From the Wall Street Journal:
In preparation for an IPO, Jessica Alba's The Honest Co., a maker of eco-friendly baby products, has raised $70 million at a valuation just shy of $1 billion and is beginning partnership talks to expand to China, Dow Jones VentureWire has learned.I don't know if I'm comfortable living in a world where Jessica Alba -- Jessica freaking Alba -- becomes a billionaire through sheer brain power. Why the fuck am I not a trillionaire by now? *jumps out window* . . . *realizes I live on the first floor* . . . *sulks*
"We believe being a public company is the best path for us going forward and it's good to get that validation early on," Honest Chief Executive and Co-founder Brian Lee said, noting that public-markets investor Wellington Management Company led the Series C round. "I can't say when that will be, but we are definitely starting to think and act like a public company."
Since launching in 2012 with its non-toxic diapers and other natural baby products, the California-based startup has grown quickly by blending its environmentally sensitive products with a social mission. Annual revenue is tracking to hit north of $150 million in 2014, or three times the revenue of 2013, according to Mr. Lee.
The Honest Co., which employs 275, previously raised $52 million.

Wendy Williams does not have a penis
Wendy Williams wants to clear up the rumors once and for all. She doesn't have a penis, she's never had a penis, and she doesn't want a penis. She told the Globe:
"People do think I was born a man. That is absolutely not true! I get it. I've got a strong face, a strong body, I'm 5-11. I wear wigs. There's no worse way to insult a woman than by saying she looks like a man." (Print Edition)You know who's most jealous of this story? The one person who would give anything for it to be about them? Justin Bieber. Can you imagine how absolutely ecstatic he would be if everyone around him kept assuming he was a man. "Yes!" he would scream, "I am! I am one of those!" Too bad this is reality though. You know, the reality where Justin Bieber's balls still haven't dropped and Wendy Williams wishes she could give him hers.

Pixie Lott performing at the Fusion Festival in Birmingham, UK (8/31)
I don't know why I've never noticed this before, but Pixie Lott is an amazing singer. I'm definitely sending her some cologne-scented locks of hair--oops, I mean CD. I'm gonna buy her CD. CDs are definitely not against the terms of my probation. *nervous laugh*

Avril Lavigne leaving the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood (8/29)
Perhaps to dull the pain that comes with being married to the frontman of Nickelback, Avril Lavigne got so drunk at the Chateau Marmont last Friday that she had to be carried out of the hotel by her friends. Nice. I've had some intense nights of drinking in my day, but even I've never woken up the next morning and needed an exorcism. Avril Lavigne is a fucking bad ass.
