On March 9, 1959, Ruth Handler introduced the iconic doll at the American International Toy Fair in New York. Ever since then, the day has been used as the toy’s official birthday. Happy Barbie Day everyone.

Over the years, Barbie has been criticized for promoting an unrealistic idea of body image to young girls. Just a few weeks ago, Mattel introduced four body types for the first time: original, tall, petite and curvy. It’s just the latest evolution of the doll which has tried to reflect the changing with the times.

In honor of Barbie Day, Entertainment Weekly has selected a few of the celebrity Barbies issued throughout the years. I’ve picked my favorite ten from their batch. Check them out below. Just in case you couldn’t do the math, Barbie is 57-years-old today.

I would assume returning back to normal life after The Bachelorette is a shock to the system. Obviously, walking around without cameras following your every move would be a nice change, but I would assume there are letdowns as well.

Season 11 Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe and her fiance Shawn Booth show Funny or Die five ways that dating on the show differs from real life. From having dinner to simply walking into a room, life in front of the cameras is certainly different off. Check out the clip below.

Formation” touches upon plenty of social issues, most notably the Black Lives Matter movement, but it appears people are also walking away with something else on their mind. Red Lobster!!!

The seafood chain reports its saw a sale surge of 33 percent on Sunday from a year ago, after Bey sang this saucy lyric, “When he fuck me good I take his ass to Red Lobster.” They don’t call her Queen Bey for nothing.

“It’s clear that Beyoncé has helped create some Red Lobster fans, and we are very grateful to her for that,” Red Lobster CEO Kim Lopdrup said in a statement. “’Cheddar Bey Biscuits’ has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?,” the chain tweeted.

Admittedly, I’m craving a little Red Lobster too. Sadly, there isn’t a location anywhere near me. Do you think Beyonce will ever be an official spokesperson for the restaurant? It’s never going to happen but I’d love to see it. Weigh in below.

Were the sales for Emotion so awful that it’s come to Carly Rae Jepsen singing for loose change? Sure, her last LP didn’t exactly burn up the charts, but Jepsen’s stint as a street performer was for Funny or Die.

The 30-year-old singer headed to Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade to give shoppers an unexpected surprise. At first, no one recognized her but once she started belting out “Call Me Maybe” and other hits, pedestrians caught on. Watch below to find out how much the Canadian earned as a busker.

Looks like Heinz is the early frontrunner to earn cutest commercial honors during Super Bowl 50. Who doesn’t love cute wiener dogs dressed as giant hot dog buns? And hundreds of them at that.

The condiment brand just unleashed their “Ketchup Game Day Hot Dog Commercial” featuring numerous dachshunds running towards humans dressed in ketchup and mustard bottles while Harry Nilsson’s “Without You” plays in the background. Sure, it sounds a little cheesy, but the pups are so dang adorable. Check out the oh-so-cute ad below.

Video Description

There comes a time in every wiener dog’s life when you look in the full length doggy mirror and ask yourself, am I going to be a plain old boring hot dog forever? Or am I going to jump this rusty chain link fence and join the rest of the wieners in an epic stampede across the globe to seek out the most amazing tasting collection of Heinz Ketchups, so that I can be the best hot dog I can be? And that moment is a defining one, for every wiener dog. These little wieners chose wisely to Meet the Ketchups.

If you can decipher that instantly, then clearly you celebrate this special day. For those who are clueless and have absolutely no idea, here’s the deal.

January 31 is Backward Day. What does that all mean? Nothing really LOL. From what I gathered, it’s a day to switch things up and try something backwards. Whether it’s walking in reverse, talking backwardly or flipping something else of your daily routine, today’s the day to experiment.

Are you considering doing something to commemorate this day? Maybe I’ll switch up my meals and eat breakfast for dinner or vice versa. Perhaps, I’ll channel 90s hip-hop group, Kris Kross, and wear my clothes backwards. Sound off below.


Whenever Emily Blunt and John Krasinski walk the red carpet, they always look so polished and put together. The celebrity couple certainly are fashionable. It appears their sense of style extends beyond their attire and to their home decor as well.

The photogenic couple recently listed their Hollywood Hills home and it’s beyond stunning. As it should, given they reportedly spent the past three years remodeling it. For all their hard work, they’re asking for a cool $8 million for the 6 bedroom and 4.5 bath abode.

The rooftop patio, pool area and master bedroom are my favorite features. Check out more pics below along with a video tour. If I won the lottery, I’d definitely put an offer on this.
