MAGnificent makeover

Yes, we realize we are in the midst of our awesome Modern Warfare 2 Xbox 360 limited edition console giveaway, but hey, it’s the season for giving and we are taking part in yet another fantastic contest that we need to tell you about. Here’s the deal:

We, along with 24 other sites, have partnered with MAGHOUND and People StyleWatch to bring you the MAGnificent Makeover sweepstakes. Up for grabs is a grand prize that includes:

  • Roundtrip Airfare for two (that would be you and a guest!) to New York City, NY on a Thursday through Saturday
  • Airport Transportation to and from the NYC airport to the hotel
  • Hotel Accommodations for a Three-Day/Two-Night stay at a NYC hotel of the Sponsor’s choice
  • An afternoon of pampering at a People StyleWatch Recommended Salon, which will take place on the Friday of the trip. Guy or girl, be ready for a salon consultation and treatment that’ll have you walking out feeling like a new person.
  • A $1,500 Shopping Spree with a People StyleWatch Editor (on that Friday) who will advise on trendy outfits and wardrobe suggestions at a retail store of the Editor’s choice

Oh, did you think that was all? We’ve also got three first prizes as well. That’s right, three people will be chosen to receive a $100 gift card to either Macy’s or Sephora, your choice.

Amy Winehouse Steps Out Looking…Normal

Amy Winehouse

Someone please sign me up for a St. Lucia makeover stat.

Last November, Amy Winehouse was walking around looking bloated and bruised. Now the “Rehab” singer appears surprisingly healthy. After an 8-month escape to the Caribbean island, Winehouse returned to her UK stomping grounds down a beehive and up a body-covering outfit. (Her eyeliner won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.)

Could this be permanent change, or will Amy eventually fall off the wagon a la Mischa Barton? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

Oscars up for Makeover?

Posted by Shannon Bennett Categories: Award Shows, Editorial, Gossip, Ratings,

DescriptionThe television audience this year hit an all-time low, and the Academy speculates that this is because the ceremony itself is beginning to feel outdated.  A makeover didn’t work for the Miss America Pageant, and there was a lot more to update on that wallflower.

Variety has served up the cringe-worthy suggestion of taking a cue from the Reality Phemonenon, but that (mercifully) doesn’t seem like a likelihood.  While it could be entertaining to see Streep and Dench race across a snow dune, tied to one another, carrying boiled produce in their mouths to win four points toward Best Actress, chances are it’s not going to catch on, even if statistics show that dignity is one of the damning things that makes poor Oscar seem so elderly.  And the truth may be that the program can’t catch up to the “YouTube generation,” because it’s a victim of it.

Tyra Banks Threatens to Sue Cancer Survivor

Tyra Banks worshippers may be a bit shocked this week to discover that their beloved supermodel-turned-entrepreneur may be suing a stage four cervical cancer survivor.

The mother of two, thirty-nine year-old Jodi Hughes, was both thrilled and surprised to find out that her two sons had won her a makeover spot on Tyra’s “Holiday Girl Party!” episode. Not only was the makeover a real letdown consisting of nothing more than a new dress and hair weave, but Hughes claims that producers would not allow her two sons (one of whom is blind) to enter the building, leaving them with no supervision or care while she received her “makeover.”

Furthermore, Hughes had to have the weave surgically removed due to an infection it caused on her scalp; all of the hair she grew completely gone after having undergone chemotherapy for years.

Hughes has asked nothing more from Banks and her team but an apology—she has not requested any monetary compensation for her mistreatment. However, Tyra showed her love towards Hughes when she threatened a lawsuit for violating her gag-order, which prevents her from talking about the show.

Someone told her that she definitely isn’t the next , right?
