When Rosalind Wiseman first published Queen Bees & Wannabes, she fundamentally changed the way adults look at girls’ friendships and conflicts–from how they choose their best friends, how they express their anger, their boundaries with boys, and their relationships with parents. Wiseman showed how girls of every background are profoundly influenced by their interactions with one another.

Now, Wiseman has revised and updated her groundbreaking book for a new generation of girls and explores:

•How girls’ experiences before adolescence impact their teen years, future relationships, and overall success
•The different roles girls play in and outside of cliques as Queen Bees, Targets, and Bystanders, and how this defin

Celebrity Gossip News

Celebrity Gossip News Has Lost Its Luster for Me.

I used to be the biggest hound for celebrity gossip news. I watched shows like TMZ and Extra on a regular basis, and I loved hearing the latest rumors about various celebrities. I started to realize a few years ago, however, that celebrities are human beings like everyone else, and celebrity gossip news quickly began to lose its appeal for me.

I think it is only natural to want to listen to gossip, and celebrity gossip news is typically pretty juicy. You hear about all of the sordid details of a love affair gone awry or an ugly feud between two celebrities, and it gives you something to talk about with other people and it almost makes you feel privy to something that should be a secret.

The fact of the matter is that it should be a secret, as all of our private lives should be a secret. One of the things you most often hear about is that many of the rumors about celebrities are untrue, but even when that is revealed, many people still associate the celebrity with the rumor, and that person has to live with that forever.
Celebrity gossip news appeals to most people, I think, because we do want to know about people and gossip can either show us that they are regular people like us, or it can knock them off of their pedestal and give them a proper lesson in humility. Either way you look at it, even when the gossip is true, all it does is prove that celebrities, like the rest of us, are human and make mistakes.

One of the greatest analogies about gossip that I have ever heard came from the movie ìDoubt.î Philip Seymour Hoffman plays a priest, and in his sermon, he is telling the story of a young woman that goes to confession and said that she has gossiped about another person, and wants to know if that is a sin.
The old priest tells her that, for her penance, she must go home, get on top of her roof with a pillow, cut it open, and empty all of the feathers from the roof. She does so, and comes back the next to tell the priest she has done what he asked.

The priest then tells her to go and gather up every feather that came from the pillow, and put it back in the case. The girl protests saying that it would be impossible, that the feathers went everywhere and are all over now. There is no way that she can find them all.
And that’s gossip, he old priest tells her.

While celebrity gossip news may be entertaining and intriguing in some cases for us, it is not necessarily a good thing. Our natural fascination with celebrities leads us to want to know more about them, but I think we should all remembers that they are people, too.

Wisps of celebrity gossip from a hair salon

Wisps of celebrity gossip from a hair salon

By Sally Hastings

Hairdressing salons must be hubs of gossip. Women like to have pretty hairdos and they also like to gossip. When they meet at hairstyling salons, they gossip.

They gossip about themselves, friends, relatives, neighbours, celebrities and many other people and things. They also like to read gossip about celebrities, in magazines at home and in hairdressing salons.

Have you ever wondered what gossip you might hear in a hair salon full of women celebrities?

Wendy Iles: No. Are you asking me?

Sally: That was just my rhetorical question but, yes, I am asking you what gossip you hear from celebrities while you style their hair.

Wendy: Well …

Sally: You know. You style the hair of leading movie and television actors, top fashion models and other celebrities.

Wendy: Yes, but –

Sally: Well just what do Hilary Swank, Penelope Cruz, Monica Bellucci, Frieda Pinto and celebrities like that gossip about in your salon?

Wendy: Well, I don’t serve people like that in a salon, only in private at their homes or their business premises. I’m based in Paris and I serve clients mainly in Paris, London, New York and Hollywood.

Sally: Who are the celebrities you serve?

Wendy: Those charming people you just mentioned are among the celebrities I serve.

Sally: Who else, for example?

Wendy: Eva Longoria, of “Desperate Housewives” on television, Maggie Chung, of the movie “In the mood for love”, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Dita von Tesse, Charlotte Rampling …

Sally: What do you chat about while you are styling their hair?

Wendy: We engage in cordial conversation to pass the time pleasantly while I’m working on their hair.

Sally: I mean do you hear about Penelope Cruz’s secret romance with or rumoured engagement that other actor, Monica Bellucci’s revealing video on YouTube, or Hilary Swank’s new, multi-million-dollar apartment in New York?

Wendy: You seem to know a lot of gossip about celebrities.

Sally: I learn about them by reading women’s magazines, watching celebrity news shows on TV, following postings about celebrities on the web and receiving news feeds by email.

Wendy: Do you learn much about celebrities by listening to gossip at a hair salon?

Sally: No … What do they tell you?

Wendy: Not too much. I don’t ask my clients personal or prying questions. It 
really depends on the day what they feel like revealing or speaking 
about. They will lead all conversations. I allow them to set the tone.

Sally: I understand: you’re their hairstylist, not a psychologist. You fix what’s on the head, not what’s going on inside it.

Wendy: Sometimes they are just exhausted and prefer silence.

Sally: I hear you are shooting commercials with famous movie director Martin Scorsese in Los Angeles. What have you to say about that?

Wendy: Well, the beauty campaign is very new so no words on that until it’s released. I’m pleased to be working on such a nice project with such a charming man as Mr Scorsese. I feel honoured to be working alongside such an iconic film director as he.

Sally: That’s good news but do you hear of any scandals or secrets about other celebrities, any sensational or embarrassing revelations?

Wendy: Not really. Even if I did, I wouldn’t tell you, not even in a whisper.

Sally: Would you tell me anything like that off the record?

Wendy: No. It would not be professional or ethical for me to tell anybody anything I happened to learn about my clients. I don’t do that. It’s like a doctor doesn’t talk to one patient about another, because that would not be right. He wouldn’t say, “Do you know your neighbour, Mrs Soandso, suffers from in-gown toenails? So I wouldn’t tell you if actress Whatshername failed to win a lead role in a film because on the day of an audition she suffered an attack of unruly follicles.

Sally: So your client’s never tell you any personal secrets or society news?

Wendy: Oh, a client may share a little secret with me at sometime. One delightful client who I’ve been serving for many years told me the other day, “Wendy, you’re the best hairstylist I know but I never recommend you to my friends.” When I asked why, she explained, “Because then their hairstyles would look as good as mine!”

Sally: Who was she?

Wendy: That’s confidential.

Sally: Still I wonder what celebrities might gossip about in a hair salon?

Wendy: You’re dying to know so you ask a hairdresser but, honestly, I can’t answer that one for you.

Wendy Iles is a hairstylist of international renown who began her career 25 years ago in Australia.
