Oscar de la Renta Is Selling Amal Alamuddin Clooney's Dress

Less than two weeks after noted barrister Amal Clooney sported an Oscar de la Renta gown for her wedding to some actor, designer Isabelle Armstrong offered up a $7,200 lookalike. But don't let the high price tag fool you: If it's not a de la Renta, it's just a pricey knockoff. Oscar, however, wasn't going to leave you… » 10/17/14 3:00pm 10/17/14 3:00pm

Nurse Amber Joy Vinson, 29, had "extensive contact" with Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian man who died of Ebola last week at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas. Now Vinson is infected.

Engagement Chicken: A History of Romantic Culinary Bullshit

We're just six weeks short of Thanksgiving, which means two things: First, if your Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Year plans involve air travel, book your ticket now or suffer the financial consequences. Secondly, if you're looking to get hitched over the holidays and believe in magic, it might be time to bust out the… » 10/15/14 12:20pm 10/15/14 12:20pm

Gone Girl’s Biggest Villain Is Marriage Itself

"We resent each other, control each other, cause each other pain." This is the nasty, white-hot core of a toxic relationship. Gone Girl is about many things: revenge, infidelity, the wounds inflicted by bad parenting, the media, an angry wife, her douchebag husband. It is also about a marriage taken to its most… » 10/06/14 4:45pm 10/06/14 4:45pm

Bride's Handmade, $30 Wedding Gown Is a Chill Situation

The wedding dress is a torture device. Not necessarily in the physical sense — unless you're sporting a Pnina Tornai piece of corsetry that promises to elegantly fuse your spleen to your gall bladder because it's your special day — but the dress can certainly be a nasty piece of psychological weaponry, particularly… » 9/23/14 2:07pm 9/23/14 2:07pm

Twitter Thinks Domestic Airlines Are the Worst (Because They Are)

United lands at the bottom of the list. The only surprise here is with myself; I've somehow resisted the urge to call Delta to ask if I can transfer my United miles/status to Delta's frequent flier program. But trying to switch your frequent flier status and miles from one domestic airline to another is like trading a… » 9/11/14 5:56pm 9/11/14 5:56pm

What Gawker Media Is Doing About Our Rape Gif Problem

On Monday, we posted an open letter to the management of Gawker Media, our parent company, regarding an ongoing problem that we here at Jezebel could no longer tolerate: horribly violent rape gifs that were consistently appearing in our comments. For months, we asked Gawker Media HQ for help with the trolling — but… » 8/13/14 11:00am 8/13/14 11:00am

ABC Offers Live Aerial Footage of Robin Williams' Home Because Why?

In the scramble to cover yesterday's horrible and shocking news that Robin Williams was dead, apparently by his own hand — and in the absence of any hard information other than the fact that he died from asphyxiation and his family has asked that we respect their privacy — ABC decided that the best way to cover the… » 8/12/14 9:50am 8/12/14 9:50am

We do, and we've received that tip — the ABA writeup is a bit too thin for us to go off of, and we can't get access to the CT journal that originally published the story. If you've got access, please do share! I'd like to cover but I won't assign unless we're able to read the coverage in full. » 8/08/14 1:14pm 8/08/14 1:14pm
