A little inspiration...

for the New Year: Dolly Parton's video for "Better Get to Livin'" starring the one and only Amy Sedaris!

More Important But...

I know there are more important things on New Year's Eve, but...

1) A belated congrats to the New England Patriots for their historical 16-0 NFL season. I gave up watching American football ages ago, but kudos to the FOXY Tom Brady for getting me back into it (well, at least when he's on screen).

2) Also, what's the deal with Robby Ginepri? He's in Australia; trying to prepare for the Australian Open; playing in the Next Generation Adelaide qualifying rounds; BUT retires in his 2nd qualifying match?!? Wha happened? No news has yet been posted on his website.

3) Chelsea takes on Fulham tomorrow morning (Jan. 1st at 4:40am PST on Setanta). With Chelsea's lengthy list of injured players, here's hoping we get a win and that the EPL's January transfer window helps us out a bit!

I hope you have a fun and safe New Year's Eve, and best wishes for 2008!

Why is it such a bummer when fellas you dig get married? I should be happy for the adorable Jimmy Fallon who recently got hitched to Drew Barrymore's producing partner, Nancy Juvonen.

Good Morning!

Chelsea beat Newcastle 2-1 this morning, and Man United LOST 1-2 to West Ham! My day's off to a good start!

Hello, Dalí!

Bill, Rob and I checked out the Dalí: Painting and Film exhibit at LACMA today (compliments of Lady Lorelei). My favorite parts of the exhibit were the Disney short film "Destino" and the painting "Singularities". The exhibit closes on Jan. 6th, so catch it while you can...

Random DVD

First of all, there's no easy to say this except: R.I.P. Benazir Bhutto.

Okay, back to more frivolous topics; almost forgot to mention that EASTERN PROMISES (starring Viggo Mortensen) came out on DVD this week:

To quote Bill: "Viggo is good for my ego."

Boxing Day

Chelsea tied Aston Villa 4-4 this morning in a very stressful game (3 red cards and 8 goals); argh! For other Boxing Day EPL matches, check out the listings on

Merry Christmas!

It's my last day to soak up all the holiday music I can... Best wishes to you and yours!

Monday, December 24, 2007

Random LHK News

1) First of all, Happy Christmas EVE!

2) Chelsea can now add #1 goalkeeper, Petr Cech, to their injured list! With #2 (and foxy) goalkeeper, Carlo Cudicini, out too, we're stuck with our 3rd-string man, Hilario; argh! To quote my friend's Grandmother, "Oh, Brother. God, help us." Once again, injuries are (literally) going to hurt Chelsea's chances at winning the EPL title. I just hope we can win at least ONE trophy this year, and I'd even take the Carling Cup.

3) Earlier this month, Dave Attell's hilarious comedy special CAPTAIN MISERABLE came out, and I forgot to plug it. It's still airing on HBO (if you can catch it), and it's also available for sale.

4) Speaking of HBO, extras' THE EXTRA SPECIAL SERIES FINALE is out too. It's "bloody merry"!

5) On the topic of being "bloody merry", the British Monarchy has their own official YouTube channel; check out the Queen's Christmas speeches on TheRoyalChannel.

Friday Movie Review

Johnny Depp is beyond talented! Although I don't even like musicals, he really blew me away in SWEENEY TODD. My whole crew really enjoyed the flick as well, but don't see it if you have a blood-phobia though. Anywhoo, I might have to amend my Golden Globe picks 'cause I think Depp might beat Ryan Gosling in the Best Actor (Musical/Comedy) category.

Movie/Soccer Update

I'm off to see SWEENEY TODD later this morning; can't wait!

By the way, I forgot to mention that Bill, Stacy and I saw JUNO last week. It was very good, and I'd recommend it. Ellen Page is wonderful as the lead, and you gotta love Michael Cera and Jason Bateman.

P.S. In soccer news:

1) Chelsea take on Blackburn tomorrow (Sun. at 8am PST on FSC). Let's hope Frank Lampard scores and gets his CENTURY of goals for the Blues!

2) Sweet Cheeks David Beckham may train with Arsenal during the Galaxy off-season. Perhaps he'll be fit enough to actually play in the upcoming MLS season, but I'm still NOT buying season tickets again.

Friday, December 21, 2007

The Champions!

The UEFA Champions League draw took place this morning, and Chelsea will be meeting Greece's Olympiacos in the first-round of the knock-out stage (not too terrible; well, I hope).

P.S. For my fellow Angelenos, be careful with that wind today.

Wednesday, December 19, 2007

Go Blues!

Congrats to Chelsea for beating Liverpool today (2-0) and making it to the semi-finals of the Carling Cup!!

New Music (&DVD) Tuesday

Mary J. Blige is a goddess! This is the only new music release that I want to check out today:
Mary J. Blige - Growing Pains (Bonus Track Version)

Here are some cool DVD releases coming out today (and a couple from last week too):

Monday, December 17, 2007

Why me?

My beloved John Terry is injured yet again and will be out of action for up to six weeks!!! WHY ME?? If JT loses the English national team captaincy on top of all this, I may SNAP!

P.S. Congrats to Kaka on winning the FIFA Player of the Year award!

Robby, Down Under!

Unfortunately, Robby Ginepri has to now officially attempt to qualify for the '08 Australian Open since the USTA (bastards) denied his request for a wild card. I, of course, have (an extremely biased) faith that he'll get the job done. I just can't imagine not seeing his sexy abs (err, I mean, shots) in the New Year!

(RG pic courtesy of a fab new blog I came across: Boyfriend)

P.S. I'm sending a special shout-out to Tennis Served Fresh for their LH support!

The END...

Although this blog will continue to be updated, LADY HOOLIGAN, the webzine, will no longer be online in the New Year. So, please feel free to take a final look at our archive of cheeky articles and pretty pics before I pull the plug. Thank you so much for all of your support!

Sunday, December 16, 2007

Oh, Chelsea...

Chelsea lost to Arsenal today... John Terry was injured and subbed out in the 38th minute, and Arsenal scored the only goal of the game right at the end of the first half (just a few minutes after JT left the game). I'm sad.

But, I'm hoping that tonight's episode of Snoop Dogg's Father Hood (at 10:30pm on E!) featuring David Beckham ("Snoop It Like Beckham") will lift my spirits.

Saturday, December 15, 2007

Grand Slam Sunday

The giants of English Premier League will clash tomorrow morning (Sunday, Dec. 16th) for an epic day of soccer, and I can't wait!

The 2008 Golden Globe nominees were announced today, and THE OFFICE was snubbed in the Best Comedy series category! Putting that travesty aside, here's a list of my picks:




BEST DIRECTOR = Joe Wright, Atonement

BEST DRAMATIC ACTOR = tie between Viggo Mortensen (Eastern Promises) and James McAvoy (Atonement)

BEST DRAMATIC ACTRESS = Angelina Jolie (A Mighty Heart)

BEST ACTOR, MUSICAL/COMEDY = tie between Ryan Gosling (Lars and the Real Girl) and Johnny Depp (Sweeney Todd) *UPDATED 12/22/07*

Wednesday, December 12, 2007

She's on TOP!

Saleisha is the winner of America's Next Top Model's Cycle 9! I'm fairly surprised that she made it to the end, but the girl nailed that runway from day one! So, I'll give her some props...

Tuesday, December 11, 2007

Catching up...

I've been out of town for a few days, so I'm catching up on my sporting news, etc...

But, I wanted to share a couple of fun items:

1) Becks' new ad campaign (compliments of Mister Demi)

2) A fab tennis cover racket from FRED FLARE.

Friday, December 7, 2007

Happy Birthday, JT!

Happy 27th Birthday to John Terry!
I love you, John!

Movie Update

1) Hey, check out the trailer for the SEX & THE CITY movie!

2) I'm off to see ATONEMENT tonight; can't wait!

3) Other December movies that I'm dying to see are JUNO, SWEENEY TODD, and PERSEPOLIS.

GOOD Magazine

Check it out! For only $20, you can subscribe to 6 issues of the tres cool and interesting GOOD Magazine, AND your entire subscription fee goes to a charity of your choice. I like new ideas like this...

More Important But...

I know there are more important things in the world, but...

1) The GRAMMY nominations were announced today. My (imaginary) votes go to Amy Winehouse, The White Stripes, Feist, The Beastie Boys, Lily Allen, Justice, and Robert Plant & Alison Krause.

2) Chelsea's Drogba needs knee surgery; ARGH!

3) Speaking of Chelski, owner Roman Abramovich has been named the richest sports owner around. Hey, if I had $18.7 billion(!), I would have bought Chelsea FC too! I would also sponsor an ATP/WTA joint tennis tourney (perhaps Indian Wells). Oh, a Lady Hooligan can dream...

Wednesday, December 5, 2007

Ronaldinho at Chelsea?

The EPL January transfer window is going to be interesting. I'm not sure how I feel about the rumors of Ronaldinho coming to Stamford Bridge; do we really need another expensive (and potentially ineffective) star player??

Tuesday, December 4, 2007

New Music (&DVD) Tuesday

First of all, HAPPY HANUKKAH!!!

Okay, there aren't a lot of big music releases today. Rufus Wainright has a live double-cd out however. Also, my blog pal, Kenneth in the 212, turned me onto Nicole Atkins a little while ago, and I can highly recommend her new album (she sounds like a modern-day Cass Elliot):

Apple iTunes
These are the 2 big DVD releases today:

P.S. Currently, I'm watching the UEFA Champions League between Celtic FC and AC Milan (on ESPN2). Let's see if the Ballon d'Or winner, Kaka, can help AC Milan win.

Art Show & Gift Sale

Today, I'm opening the Lady Hooligan Gallery for the first time ever and hosting an Art Show & Gift Sale (just in time for the holidays)! The event will be featuring the works of S. Manning, Hillzie and Lady Shelly.

Saturday, December 1, 2007

LHK Sporting News

1) The US can re-claim Davis Cup victory if the Bryan Brothers win their doubles match today. James Blake and Andy Roddick already won their matches yesterday to give the U.S. a 2-0 lead over Russia!

2) Chelsea beat West Ham this morning! I contemplated going to London for this game 'cause I've always wanted to see my top 2 EPL pretties (John Terry and Freddie Ljungberg) playing on the same pitch. Oh, a Lady Hooligan can dream...

3) Last but not least: 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8! U! C! L! A! UCLA! FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! The big game's today; let's BEAT 'SC, baby!

Friday, November 30, 2007

Davis Cup!!

The Davis Cup final in Portland starts today! The U.S. takes on Russia, and live coverage begins on VERSUS at 1pm PST. This is truly the last big tennis event of 2007!

Thursday, November 29, 2007

Don't miss Kathy Griffin's new special "Straight to Hell" tonight on Bravo at 9pm!!

Wednesday, November 28, 2007

Come on, Chelsea!

I'm off to the Fox and Hounds with my Brosef today to watch Chelsea take on Rosenborg in Champions League action (on ESPN2 at 11:30am PST). They better win 'cause it's my birthday (and I'll cry if I want to)!

P.S. I love you, John Terry!

Monday, November 26, 2007

Off to the Desert!

Hillz and I are off to Palm Springs today to visit our fabulous friend (and acclaimed singer) Michael Allen!

P.S. I hear that Robby Ginepri has been doing some off-season training in the Desert-area. Hmmm...

Sunday, November 25, 2007

Happy Birthday, Nerd!

Happy Birthday, Lady Shaunerd!

Love always, Kat and WEM

Saturday, November 24, 2007

JT's back!

John Terry is back from injury (finally), and he started today in Chelsea's 2-0 win over Derby!

In other good EPL news, Man U LOST to Bolton! Sweet!

Friday, November 23, 2007

Shopping, sweetie!

Look out, it's Black Friday! Happy Shopping to those brave souls who are going to hit the (physical) stores today. However, if you're an online shopper like moi, please refer to my previous post on holiday online shopping for some helpful tips.

Speaking of online shopping, a couple of great sites that I really dig (and am not "affiliated" with) are THE SPOON SISTERS and FRED FLARE. They both have tons of cute crap and are therefore rather dangerous...

Thursday, November 22, 2007

Gobble! Gobble!

Happy Thanksgiving! Mmm, stuffing...

Wednesday, November 21, 2007

England vs. Croatia

THE BIG game between England and Croatia is today! England only needs a draw to qualify for the Euro 2008 tournament. I have strong ties to both countries, but since Croatia has already qualified, I can comfortably root for England! Unfortunately the game is only available on pay-per-view, but perhaps I'll mosey on over to a local pub to try and see the game.

Tuesday, November 20, 2007

New Music (&DVD) Tuesday

These are the only new cd releases that caught my eye:
Apple iTunes

The new DVD releases seem more fun:

P.S. Happy Birthday, Lauren!

Monday, November 19, 2007


I love the English rapper, Kano, and I'm dying to get my hands on his second cd "London Town". Unfortunately however, his new cd isn't out in the States, and I'm too cheap to buy it as an import. BUT, my good friend, AJ, said that she'd try and pick up a copy for me while she's on tour with LOOKER in the UK.

In the meantime, check out the video for Kano's new single "Feel Free" (featuring Damon Albarn):

Sunday, November 18, 2007

What to watch today?

Hmm, what do I watch today?

1) The 2007 MLS Cup between the New England Revolution and the Houston Dynamo (on ABC at 9am PST) OR

2) The final of the Tennis Masters Cup between Roger Federer and David Ferrer (on ESPN2 at 9am PST)?

I'll switch back and forth OF COURSE! But, I'm probably a little more interested in the tennis, as I want David Ferrer to PLEASE upset Roger (again). I don't have a favorite between the two MLS teams, but I guess I should root for New England 'cause 1) I like that neck of the woods better and 2) their goalkeeper, Matt Reiss, is a UCLA alum!

P.S. Wish Lady Sophie and me luck! Later this afternoon, we'll be playing in a Thanksgiving dubz tourney!

Saturday, November 17, 2007

LHK Sporting News

1) England beat Austria 1-0 yesterday in an international friendly, with David Beckham providing the corner kick leading to Peter Crouch's winning header. BUT unfortunately, Michael Owen suffered YET ANOTHER injury! Poor baby.

2) There are some big Euro 2008 qualifying games happening today:

- Israel vs. Russia; airing live on FSC at 9:55am PST. This game affects England's chances; stressful!

- Spain vs. Sweden; airing live on GolTV at 12:55pm PST. Both teams have hot players; it's practically soft porn!

- Scotland vs. Italy; airing live on RAI International at 8:45am PST. I don't getz this channel; boo!

Visit for additional info.

3) In the semi-finals of the Tennis Masters Cup, Rafa takes on Roger, and Andy takes on David (Ferrer, that is).

Friday Movie Review

Bill and I rallied tonight and caught a random early evening screening of the movie ELEVEN MEN OUT. As soon as Bill told me about this Icelandic gay soccer movie, I knew I had to see it! Although there unfortunately wasn't much soccer in the movie, there was a fair amount of male nudity, and the lead actor looked like a male model. It really doesn't take much to make this Lady Hooligan happy!

P.S. Lady Lorelei sent me a link to a saucy fragrance she found online called LADY VENGEANCE! Hee-hee!

Crazy Robertson!

Crazy Robertson, a Los Angeles icon, has been immortalized on a line of tees! Skate on, Crazy!

P.S. England takes on Austria today in an international soccer friendly, but the game is only being aired on Setanta CCTV; boo!

Thursday, November 15, 2007

Mr. French

My pal Lady Lorelei told me about this article on the gorgeous KCRW DJ Mathieu Schreyer. Who knew he was an actor too? Check out the new Duran Duran video he's in.

Kylie Minogue also has a new single out "2 Hearts" (I'm not sure about this one; you be the judge)
Kylie Minogue - 2 Hearts - Single - 2 Hearts

These albums look good too:

Some great DVDs come out today as well:

More Important But...

I know there are more important things in the world, but...

1) No new movie today; off to CARDIO TENNIS instead (again).

2) David Beckham has been called up for national team duty.

3) Justine Henin's vengeful double-bagel victory over Marion Bartoli at the Sony Ericsson Championships yesterday in Madrid was just brutal.

4) Former Chelsea FC player, Ruud Gullit, has been named the new LA Galaxy manager. Although I like this move, I still refuse to renew my season tickets.

5) Speaking of my beloved Blues, Chelsea takes on Everton on Sunday (airing live on Setanta at 6am PST). Come on, Chelsea!

6) And finally, here's some random eye-candy for your Friday. Hot and cheezy UK singer, Shayne Ward, showing us some shirtless hooligan luv:

Thursday, November 8, 2007

Random Thursday News

1) Chelsea FC has launched their official American website; RED, WHITE and TRUE BLUE! You know it!

2) Tennis has gone cray-gee, and Tommy Haas really just has terrible luck! His newest misfortune: he might have been poisoned during a Davis Cup semi-final against Russia. To quote my friend's Grandma, "Oh, Brother!"

3) Have you heard of the search engine GoodSearch? Well, it's actually the Yahoo! search engine, but every time you do a search through GoodSearch, you can help a charity. Please check it out.

4) My condolences to the Kuerten family on the passing of Guga's younger brother, Guilherme.

Wednesday, November 7, 2007

Happy Birthday, Andy!

Taylor (of Tennessee, not Duran Duran), that is...

Tuesday, November 6, 2007

New Music (&DVD) Tuesday

Well, it's slim pickins in the music department today, but here are some funny new Christmas albums that caught my eye:

And these DVDs look really good...

P.S. The new Spice Girls single "Headlines (Friendship Never Ends)" came out yesterday, and it's kind of lame. Sorry, BT. Check it out for yourself:

WTA Year-End Tourney

The Sony Ericsson Championships start tomorrow (Nov. 6th) in Madrid. VERSUS will be airing the matches between the WTA's top 8 ladies. Let's hope someone actually challenges Justine Henin!

Speaking of Madrid, Jelena Jankovic was invited to play tennis on a soccer pitch! Oh, a Lady Hooligan can dream...

Sunday, November 4, 2007

Bravo, David!

David Nalbadian just defeated Rafa Nadal in the final of the Paris Masters. David is truly an inspiration to all twisty playaz like moi!

P.S. Do you think the ATP's new FEEL IT campaign was inspired by our Lady Hooligan mottos of SELL IT and TASTE IT?! Hmm...

Friday, November 2, 2007

Upcoming Events

1) Saturday, Nov. 3rd: Live Art '07 at Hollywood & Highland.

2) Sunday, Nov. 4th: The Los Angeles Galaxy take on Hollywood United FC in a FIRE RELIEF CHARITY GAME.

3) Tuesday, Nov. 13th: Young Variety's 3rd Annual Turkey Dinner at Mel's Diner in Hollywood.

P.S. No new movie today; I'm off to CARDIO TENNIS instead. Speaking of tennis, I'm thrilled that David Nalbadian beat Roger Federer (again) yesterday at the Paris Masters!

Meryl Streep as Julia Child!

Meryl Streep is set to portray Julia Child in the flick JULIE & JULIA. I'd see anything Meryl Streep is in!

Tennis Scandal?!

Martina Hingis + Wimbledon + Cocaine + Retirement = Wha happen?!?

With the holidays around the corner...

It's November! I'm in the mood for cooler weather, holiday music and holiday SHOPPING (sweetie) too of course! With that said, let me tell you about some LHK blog partners that I'd love for you to keep in mind if/when you do some online spending:

1) sells pretty much everything, and I think their gift certificates rule (hint, hint)! And, if you have an Amazon wish-list, please update it (you know who you are).

2) I heart iTunes!
Apple iTunes

3) seems to have a wider selection than Sephora (at least online), and they have free shipping too (with a lower min. purchase req than Sephora).

4) Speaking of make-up, if you want to try some fun & cheap products, check out e.l.f. cosmetics:
Elf Cosmetics

5) Finally, you can't go wrong with snacks and sweets from The Popcorn Factory!
The Popcorn Factory

Yes, I'm "affiliated" with all of the random companies listed above. So if you shop through the links on my blog (listed above, in various posts and in the right-hand column permanently), a tiny % of the sale comes in to help support the LH site costs.

BUT, let's put the material crap aside for a moment. I don't know about you, but I like to give some charitable donations as gifts every year. Some organizations that I'd like to recommend are:

1) The Amanda Foundation rescues dogs and cats from City & County shelters and finds loving homes for them.

2) The Surfrider Foundation is an environmental organization dedicated to protecting the world's oceans.

3) Children's Hospital Los Angeles is also a wonderful and worthy institution.

4) And, the new organization that has caught my attention is KIVA, which I've mentioned before.

Kiva - loans that change lives

Thanks as always! I'm done rambling for now...

P.S. Chelsea beat Leicester in a Carling Cup match today! Congrats to Frank Lampard on his hat triZick!

Happy Halloween!

New Music (&DVD) Tuesday

There's no BS here! Here are the only music releases I'm interested in today:

Free music is always nice too though...
Apple iTunes
And these DVDs have caught my eye:

P.S. I feel sort of obligated to mention that cutie John Krasinki's (terrible) summer movie, License to Wed, is out today too.

Monday, October 29, 2007

We won't always have Paris.

Apparently, Robby Ginepri won't be participating in the ATP Master Series in Paris (which starts today with coverage on Tennis Channel) and has instead decided to return home to Georgia to train. I feel for the poor lad; he hasn't had a good year on the tour (although I wouldn't mind having a bad year at work and still gross over $200K). Robby, I'll be cheering for you next year nonetheless!

By the way, my other beloved, Marat Safin, has also called it quits early this year, hoping for a better run in 2008 as well. Marat, I hope we can take another picture together soon!

Chelsea just beat Manchester City 6-0! Oh, happy day!

Friday Movie Review

Hillz, Bill and I saw DAN IN REAL LIFE today. Although Hillz and I are big fans of THE OFFICE and of Steve Carell, we kept our expectations low, and we were all pleasantly surprised by this cute and sweet movie. Juliet Binoche, who co-stars, is so lovely, and the delightful soundtrack was penned and performed by Sondre Lerche. I think my favorite part of the movie was the East Coast scenery. I'm sort of obsessed with Cape Cod (for no good reason really; I've never been), and this flick was set in some gorgeous coastal town in Rhode Island!

Wednesday, October 24, 2007

Tennis on the CW?!

I need to get a job on this upcoming tennis show to be executive produced by Maria Sharapova!

More Important But...

I know there are more important things in the world, but...

1) Chelsea just beat Schalke! Sweet!

2) Bill Murray is set to appear on the cover of the premiere issue of MOVIES ROCK.

3) Entertainment Weekly has come up with a list of the Top 25 Dirty Songs. I agree with some of the selections (Bel Biv Devoe, Marvin Gaye, Peaches, Ray Charles), and Color Me Badd is even on there for Lady Lorelei.

4) Sia is scheduled to be on Morning Becomes Eclectic tomorrow (Thurs. 10/25; KCRW 89.9 FM); I can't wait for her new album (Some People Have Real Problems)!

5) PERSEPOLIS is an animated movie that I am actually looking forward to!

Champions League

Chelsea takes on Schalke 04 today in Champions League action (on ESPN2 at 11:30am PST). Go Blues!

By the way, the Chelsea anti-racism charity single "Skin" (featuring Michael Essien and Didier Drogba) is out now. Check out the video HERE.

P.S. On a random note, I'm still in a Sam Riley-fog after seeing CONTROL and also seeing him in person at the post-screening Q&A. Even though I've learned that he's dating his co-star, Alexandra Maria Lara (boo!), I just can't get over how breathtaking he is... Hmmm, I wonder what football club he supports?
