For All Virgins Who Can’t Drive…

July 19, 1995: Clueless is released in theatres, transitioning the typical 80s teen movie style into a 90s world.

This monumentous event occured SEVENTEEN years ago today.

Clueless taught us all so much about life, love and fashion, as well as giving us all of THE coolest phrases to use (Whatever!).

Therefore, let’s honor this event (but I hope not sporadically!), and admire all of the amazing people who make appearances in this epic retelling of a Jane Austen classic.

A Little Prinze on the Way

Every celebrity gossip lover has that one celebrity couple that they put all of their hopes and dreams into. That one couple that-if they break up-actually wounds your soul a little.

For me, that golden couple is none other than Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar. For 10 years, the former reigning Prinze and Prinzess of the teen scene have flown under the radar with their relationship, managing to avoid any Hollywood scandal and live a fairly normal life together. For this, I highly respect and admire them.

And now, Freddie and Sarah are about to welcome their second child, and sources say that baby Prinze/Gellar is going to be a bouncing baby BOY.

To celebrate, let’s enjoy a blast from the past…when Freddie was a blonde.

CONGRATS to Freddie, Sarah Michelle, and Charlotte Grace!

Because I love him. Oh, so much.

Also, let’s just revel in the upcoming return of Arrested Development.

Rihanna and Chris Brown Want Us to Know They’re Boning Again

In case your brain hasn’t been infected with this news yet, professional publicity whores Chris Brown and Rihanna have just released two remixes together (click the link if you’re interested in listening to the flaming kaka that was birthed from dysfunction).
One of the remixes is titled Birthday Cake. As my favorite blogger Michael K said, “If RiRi wants to f*ck on that twathole again, then fine, but why is she dragging us into it? More importantly, why is she dragging delicious cake into it?”
UGH. Seriously, RiRi? What would Tina Turner Angela Bassett say? Obviously, there are many opinions on this matter; ranging from moron tweens on twatter (typo, but I’m keeping it) saying “OMG he’s so hot he could beat me any day” to “This guy is the epitome of douche and it’s insane that this is even up for discussion”(which is my personal stance).

Now, I may joke about some heavy shit in this post (it’s my defense mechanism, duh); but as a woman I am sincerely disappointed, and as a member of my generation I’m appalled. First of all, I’m not necessarily lashing out at Rihanna for jumping back on the dick that she was once slapped with. That’s her business, I guess?
But she is, however, completely shitting on the fact that she is a role model for some young women out there. Is it so far-fetched to think that some young, naive, impressionable woman out there is hit by her boyfriend, and rationalizes “Well, beautiful and famous Rihanna was beaten once by Chris Brown, and now they’re happily ever after!”? Barf.. dry heave… think I’m ok… Nope, it’s more barf.

I know “An artist’s life is their own” but C’mon; it doesn’t take a genius to know that as a public figure (especially one who is cashing in on the teen demographic) you have a RESPONSIBILITY.

I guess the least Rihanna could do is release a statement saying, “Yes, I’m hitting it again. I know it’s not the best life-choice, especially considering I have many more options and WAY more money than most women in abusive situations do; but I’m not in a great place emotionally right now, so I’m letting this leach in.” That half-assed effort would be better than literally assisting in getting his career back on track after an “unsavory incident” involving your own FACE and his knuckles.
Seriously, girlfriend needs to watch a private screening of No One Would Tell… with a therapist.

Now, as much as I wish cake wasn’t involved in this mess, I think I know the inspiration behind their new song (Courtesy of the film What’s Love Got to Do with It). In all seriousness, RiRi needs a friend like Buddhist Jackie to help set her straight. Don’t eat the cake, Anna Mae!

Product Review: Organix Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum

Okay, I’m aware that we do a lot of hair product reviews here at Don’t Cho There, but it’s honestly hard out there for those of us with wavy/curly Chola hair. (Side note: the google image search for “Chola hair” is extremely rewarding).
Curls are dryer, and more prone to breakage; especially as it grows longer (But on the plus side, I read once that head lice have a harder time latching onto it! Yaaaaygross).
Also, many women with waves tend to use heat to style/straighten their hair.

Anyway, I always use conditioner/conditioning treatments, but I wanted to find some kind of finishing spray or serum to combat frizz/static.
I used the Organix Coconut Milk Shampoo and Conditioner a couple of years ago when it first came out; and while it was great and had a noticeable moisturizing effect, my roommate and I agreed that it was a little too perfumey and could give those with a sensitive sense of smell a headache as the day went on (Seriously, why does everything NEED to have a shit load of fragrance in it these days?).
Fortunately, that wasn’t the case with this product, the scent is far more subtle. You’re supposed to apply 1-2 small droplets of the serum to damp hair, so a little bit goes a long way; I’ve been pleasantly surprised that my hair has never felt greasy or grimy while using it. I mainly use it when I let my curls air-dry (I’ve recently quit being a slave to moouse/gel/alcohol hair products), but this stuff works wonders if you use it before blow-drying and flat-ironing as well.

I’ve also been trying to be more natural with my mane (only blow-drying or flat-ironing on certain occasions rather than every other day), and I can definitely feel the difference. It feels much softer and healthier. My new hair inspiration comes from the early 1900’s not Mel “Gibson Girl”, as well as 1970’s hotties Linda Ronstadt and Stevie Nicks. These ladies have made me more accepting of curly hangs and the possibility that they could be cute while being retro.
Also, this new natural-hair-fascination is a huge money and time saver!
