Help “Gossip Girl” Star Kelly Rutherford Get Her Kids Back!
After a headline-capturing divorce, “Gossip Girl” star Kelly Rutherford and her ex-husband, German businessman Daniel Giersch, who was deported one year ago, were granted joint custody of their children, 6-year-old Hermes and 3-year-old Helena. But because Kelly’s ex can’t return to the United States, the judge ruled that the children would be sent to live in France with their father— away from their mother, their friends and the home they’ve known since birth.
Caroline Fina, a friend of Kelly’s, just launched a petition on Change.org to help bring her friends’ kids home to the US after the family was torn apart by what some have called “one of the worst custody decisions ever.”
Says Caroline: “I want you to know that Kelly is not your average mother. She is the mom who sews the Spiderman mask back together when it rips, the mom who has lollipops in her purse at all times just in case she comes across a child crying, at school, at the airport, anywhere. She is the mom who will eat the crazy-looking birthday cake her kids made for her, just because it’s made of love. Kelly is a caring and generous friend, and most importantly, a truly exceptional mother. To see her now, separated from Hermes and Helena, enduring the worst possible agony a mother can experience, pushes me to reach out for help.”

MJ Fave: Converse X John Varvatos Limited Edition Studded Leather High-Tops!
The best part about these shoes, in my opinion, is their versatility. You can rock them “dressed down” with a pair of shorts or “dress up” a simple black suit.
Guys don’t always get to have as much fun as girls when it comes to fashion, so these are a great pair of shoes that will really make people go “wow!”
Male celebrity fans of Converse include Justin Bieber, Zac Efron, Adrian Grenier, and “Gossip Girl” star Chace Crawford and female celeb fans include Blake Lively, Natalie Portman, Nicole Richie, Jessica Alba, Mila Kunis, and Miley Cyrus.Read More

Gossip Girl Stylist Eric Daman Tells You How To Be Airport “Fab” Not “Drab!”
Is this comic not the most accurate thing?!
We can’t tell you how many times MJ sees girls looking uber fab at the airport, then get to the security checkpoint, and become all sorts of drab. So we asked our pal, “Gossip Girl” wardrobe stylist Eric Daman to share his tips on how to look airport chic.
“Traveling to me is a lifestyle, whenever I’m about to jump on a red eye to cross the country its all about chic chic chic and comfort (of course),” Eric told MJ. ”I never ever travel without my White and Warren cashmere travel wrap. A sort of oversized scarf that serves as a wrap as you run to your connecting flight or petit throw while en voyage to keep me soft cozy and totes chic! Its an investment purchase but sooo worth while!”
Eric Suggests: Get one in a fab neutral tone like dark grey or camel to go with everything!
And finally, Eric says: “Don’t forget the sunnies! Nothing looks (or feels) better then a pair of dark glasses to block the infectious UVs of overhead lighting!”
Be sure to pick up Eric Daman x DKNY hosiery in stores nationwide for comfy, sexy and “jetsetter” chic leggings that are perfect for traveling and transition effortlessly for a night out on the town!Read More

Gwyneth Paltrow Says “No” To Interviews But “Yes” To A Photo Opp!
When Gwyneth Paltrow walks into a room, you know it’s an A-list event…
And, as such, reporters at the 3rd Annual Bent on Learning charity event were clamoring for a quote (at least!) from the Hollywood actress. “No interviews, sorry!” Gwyneth told the media.
“How about a fun photo?” MJ asked with his “Georiga Peach” charm. “Yes, I’ll do a photo” she replied before motioning MJ to nuzzle up next to her for a “HOT SHOT!”
Other celebs in attendance at the Alice + Olivia and Zico Coconut Water-sponsored event included Russell Simmons, models Molly Sims and Hillary Rhoda, Gossip Girl gals Tika Sumpter and Kelly Rutherford, and (a very preggers and gorgeous!) Rebecca Minkoff, designer to the stars.Read More

Is “The Rachel” Hair Cut Going To Be Making A Comeback?
It seems that Jennifer Aniston‘s much-copied 90s haircut is still a favorite today!
Users voted Jennifer Aniston #1 in a new Bing survey released in conjunction with the launch of their new search feature that integrates your trusted Facebook friends into the convenience of your search. Aniston was the top choice for Bing fans when asked, “What celebrity would you trust to help decide what your new haircut should be, if they were your friend on Facebook”, beating out famous hair worthy celebs like Kate Gosslen, Donald Trump and Snooki.
What shocked MJ is that although fans may love Justin Bieber’s music, it seems they don’t share the same “Bieber Fever” for his locks, as the tween sensation was the least trusted celebrity to help decide a new haircut.
Reese Witherspoon’s classic understated style is a favorite among users as she beat out Sarah Jessica Parker, Blake Lively, and Lady Gaga as the top celebrity users would trust to help choose a piece for their summer wardrobe.
(This one we were a little shocked about!)
And when it comes to making plans for their upcoming Memorial Day BBQ? Users trusted celebrity chef Rachael Ray’s recipes over her Food Network peers Bobby Flay and Guy Fieri, when deciding what to cook for the BBQ.Read More

Also there to support: Pharrell (who played host), Gossip Girl actress Leighton Meester who came with (and wore) Vera Wang, Iman & David Bowie, Solange Knowles and Cyndi Lauper.
Before an energetic performance from Mary J. Blige, the COO of DKMS Americas, Katharina Harf, presented an award to Rihanna in recognition for her tireless work in the fight against leukemia.
“Anyone can be affected by leukemia,” said Rihanna. ““It is the number one disease children in the U.S. die of and we can change that. I encourage people to become bone marrow donors with DKMS. If we have more donors, we can save more lives.”
The Barbados-born singer went on, “I would like to dedicate this award to Shannon Tavarez who fought so bravely against this disease but was tragically taken from us far too soon. Shannon was a great inspiration who selflessly promoted awareness of the need for donors, so that others may receive the help they need, and she will be missed.”
Great news! The event raised a record 2.5 million dollars which will help register nearly 40,000 bone marrow donors and work to save lives worldwide.
