When I first heard about DREAM SCHOOL – I’m not going to lie – I was skeptical. I might have even rolled my eyes. I mean, high school dropouts being taught by celebrities? “What will be taught – and who will be the teachers?” I wondered. Would Britney Spears teach an auto-tune music class? Would Professor Kim Kardashian teach elocution or videography? Or would Miley Cyrus hold court on sex education? My mind boggled.
Joe Zee works with LA based fashion designer Ina Soltani to bring her high-end fashion line back down to Earth. Soltani’s struggling line is aimed squarely at the fashion jet set, and she has dressed celebrities from Kim Kardashian to Eva Longoria. But is this a big enough crowd to support a fashion line? And are her celebrity connections enough to justify the high cost to average consumers?
We have a dream that one day, people will deal with sex rationally and reasonably. Sure, we know that everyone loses it a little when they’re head over heels in lust — but we’re talking about something much deeper and more ingrained and more screwed up. Like orthodox Jewish men blurring their glasses so they don’t have to look at immodest women… or men visiting prostitutes for emotional intimacy… or the U.K. making it illegal to own depictions of sexual acts (like fisting) that are perfectly legal to engage in (just ask Christian Grey).
What do you get when you cross one of the greatest philosophers of the nineteenth century, the father of existentialism, with one of the greatest reality television stars, who has dated anyone-who-is-anyone in hip-hop, R&B and professional sports and who occasionally makes a sex tape or totally dumped Paris Hilton? You get a Twitter account, naturally. We’d like to introduce you to KimKierkegaardashian, the lovechild of Soren Kierkegaard and Kim K. And, to put it mildly, she is dropping knowledge.
As fickle as our culture is, we seem to draw the line at physical well being. That being said, the socially acceptable paradigm has shifted again. Tan colored skin is out. It’s as current as Tara Reid at Cannes, which means it makes no sense, and has no place in the modern world.
Kim Kardashian’s gaudy fairytale nuptials lasted just 72 days.
Louis XIV, in all his decadence, ruled France for just over 72 years, making him the longest-reigning monarch in European history.
Somewhere in between lies Jackie Siegel, the wonderfully tacky, basketball-bosomed protagonist of Lauren Greenfield’s rags-to-riches-to-rags documentary, QUEEN OF VERSAILLES, which made its world premiere the opening night of the Sundance Film Festival.
All on the Line with Joe premieres Friday, November 25th at 9:30pm.

“Joe Zee Talks ELLE, Says Snooki Will Never Land Cover”
These days you can’t go anywhere without seeing or hearing about the cast of “Jersey Shore.” But one place you won’t see Snooki is on the cover of Elle magazine.
“I don’t know about Snooki. I’m going to have to pass on that one,” the creative director Joe Zee told me when I asked him if reality stars would ever grace his coveted cover. “We put Lauren Conrad on the cover of our anniversary issue and she did very well. Listen, Kim [Kardashian] is a big cover star out there and if Kim had something going on in her life right now — Kim’s very quiet — I just wish that she would do something, but she’s not doing anything. If she actually did something, we would actually think about Kim for the cover. It’s about new. It’s not about, so much, a reality star. The idea is, are they newsworthy? Is it someone our readers want to read about?”
According to Joe, there is one cover girl who’s always newsworthy…
Kim Kardashian wearing Leila Shams (via Monica Rose). Oh la la! What’s that we see? It’s fashion It-Girl Kim Kardashian in a perfect black skirt designed by our talented gal pal Leila Shams! Tune in to Sundance Channel’s all new original series ALL ON THE LINE to watch Leila Shams and other struggling designers as…
James Cameron with his wife Suzy Amis on the red carpet before the Oscars
Maybe I’m just getting too old and cynical for the Oscars. Heh. When you see Joan Collins out every night, you do start to wonder – what the sam hell is going on? This post will be briefer than the lasts as, well, baby is hungover. Yes, I know. AGAIN. There does seem something so wrong about Oscar week in LA. The abundant narcissism and back slapping is fricking hilarious (“Good Job! That movie you made was awesome! Forget curing cancer – you are the best person alive! Especially because you are so rich and pretty!”).
