Craigslist post dedicated to Lena Dunham
Lena Dunham has been the subject of much entertainment news post-Emmy awards this past weekend and now she’s also the subject of a slightly disturbing Craigslist post.
The Observer has speculated that the post was written by her college ex-boyfriend – it’s addressed directly to her and discusses Girls, the writer’s dating life and most noticeably, the writer’s personal history with Lena, giving graphic details of their relationship history and sex life.
Parts of it seem beautifully written and other parts seem plain weird. Overall, it just seems sad. Read it here and let us know what you think.
Possible Naomi Campbell chat show
Naomi Campbell has confirmed rumours that she’s been in talks with US TV producers about hosting her own talk show. The former supermodel has spent a lot of time lately dishing out advice on the mentoring show The Face, as well as being very vocal about racial (in)equality in the modelling industry. Naomi has always been known for her strong personality and fierce opinions. A talk show hosted by her would surely be entertaining.
More bad news for South Africa in Nairobi attack
After the tragic news that South African entrepreneur and family man James Thomas died in the Westgate Mall attack in Nairobi, we are sad to learn that a South African woman (not yet named) is also presumed dead in the attack.
In another development, a British woman, Sam Lewthwaite, nicknamed ‘The White Widow’, is thought to be one of the people behind the terrorist attack. She is alleged to have used a false South African passport and has been on the run in East Africa for two years, and is now wanted by Kenyan police. She is thought to have become involved in terrorist activity after her husband was found to be one of the suicide bombers in the London Underground attack of 2005.

Selena Gomez hangs out with Anna Wintour
While Miley is causing controversy with nudity, twerking and general inappropriateness in a move to shake off her Disney Channel persona, Selena Gomez is proving that it’s possible to show the world that you’ve grown up in a much classier and more stylish way. She has become something of a style icon these days, gracing the front row of fashion shows including Versace’s. She’s been spotted having a lunch date with Vogue editor, Anna Wintour. Perhaps Selena’s first ever Vogue cover is on the cards?
