It was only on Monday that we found out that Kate Middleton and Prince William were expecting a child but it seems like it has been months considering the amount of press coverage that has been shoved down our throats. And now we are already starting to see businesses start to profit from this baby that is still in utero. More
Tory Burch has been in the news a lot lately. Some if it has been about the rapid success of her company and its rumored IPO. But a lot of it has been because of her very personal and public legal battle with her ex-husband, Chris Burch, and his business venture, C.Wonder. But we have been fans of Tory since the beginning not only because of her stunning designs but because of her entrepreneurial spirit, her strong desire to help other women and the fact that she has built an internationally recognized $2 billion brand in eight short years. How does she do it?! Well, here are some lessons from Tory you can start with. More

Kristen Stewart truly tainted her career when it was revealed that she had an affair with Rupert Sanders who directed her in the film Snow White and the Huntsman. Because not only did it show that she was cheating on her boyfriend, but it put a side of her out there in the media as a womanizing harlot that has no boundaries when it comes to married men that are essentially her boss.

In case you hadn’t heard, we are pretty obsessed with the new Bravo reality show, Start-Ups: Silicon Valley. We are especially obsessed with the three women on the show: Sarah Austin, Hermione Way and Kim Taylor. They have definitely given us some colorful plotlines so far from catfights at toga parties, to catnaps at meetings and sexist conversations with your boss. One thing for sure is, these three ambitious women are all going amazing places in their careers. We got to chat with each one about why they decided to do a reality show, being a woman in tech in Silicon Valley and live blogging dates. More
For years supermodel Kate Moss was a media fixture enigma as she basically managed to stay famous without doing any interviews and being camera shy. But now, with the release of her new book, The Kate Moss Book, she is everywhere. She just spilled her guts and did a very revealing spread for Vanity Fair and then did another candid article with Time. Now The Telegraph is reporting that a Kate Moss documentary is in the works. It may not be too long before we are sick from hearing from Kate Moss, once the world’s quietest supermodel. More
In case you hadn’t heard, the final installment of the Twilight franchise comes out this Friday, Breaking Dawn: Part 2. The stars of the film, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, have been on an intense worldwide press junket tour to promote the film. When these two started the Twilight films, they were both relatively unknown, very young and relatively inexperienced when it came to doing promotional interviews for the film. But that was five years ago! Since 2008, between the two of them they have promoted nine films in addition to the four Twilight sequels. That is a lot of interviews asking about what it’s like to play a vampire and yet neither of these actors has improved in the slightest when it comes to public speaking or just being not the most awkward people in general.

Earlier this week, our sister site Blisstree reported on a study posted by CNN about how ovulation is the real driving force behind women’s voting decisions. The response was not very positive. I can’t imagine why. I love being told that my hormone levels control my every thought. It’s right up there with being told I am a bad driver and that I throw badly. CNN subsequently withdrew the study stating that some of it didn’t meet CNN’s editorial standards.
Yes, a lot of people are saying (and a CNN poll) that Vice President Joe Biden won the debate with his constant questioning of the Romney/Ryan ticket, his foreign policy prowess and his use of every single synonym for the word liar, but it was moderator Martha Raddatz who we are declaring the winner. Unlike Jim Lehrer, who moderated the Presidential Debate, Martha asked about topics we actually want to hear answers on, like abortion. She didn’t sugar coat anything. And when she wasn’t satisfied with a candidate’s answer, she pushed back. She made that debate exciting. More
Kim Kardashian is not even pregnant yet (reportedly) and yet she is already using an imaginary baby to get her press. Knowing Ms. Kardashian’s style she is probably already planning a maternity-wear line and a spin-off reality show, Kim & My Louis Vuitton-Dressed Baby. Kim has started tweeting just enough information to make people think she is either pregnant or trying to get pregnant. The fact that she is starting this early game means she may even be using a pregnancy more to her career advantage than Jessica Simpson did. More
If her starring roles in the feminist classics Thelma & Louise and A League of Their Own weren’t enough to convince you that Geena Davis is awesome, well, you may be a lost cause.
