Morning everyone! While Ashlee Simpson-Wentz is wondering why people are so obsessed with her sister Jessica’s fluctuating weight, we’re scratching our heads why people are still interviewing Ashlee Simpson-Wentz. While we figure that one out, onto the mix!

VIDEO REWIND OF THE DAY: Now that ABC has announced that Ugly Betty will enter its last season, Vanessa Williams has more than enough time to go back to being a pop star (not that we didn’t love her performance as Mode‘s demanding creative director Wilhelmina Slat). Let’s take a look back at her 1991 ballad “Save The Best For Last.” Williams looks absolutely stunning shot in black and white; the stylists made her look so good we can almost forgive the director for the laughably fake-looking winter wonderland set.
Have a great day, everyone!
