Do you believe those reports that Amal Clooney will be hosting Celebrity Apprentice? Then you'll believe we came across Amal's secret diary, and here's the most recent entry:

Just got home from George's big Tequila party and I must say, I was stunning. Every eye was glued to me in my gold frock. Next to me, Cindy looked like chopped liver! She has no de facto taste whatsoever. I would like to depose her stylist but I don't have the time. Life moves so fast when you are Mrs. George Clooney, Queen of The World!
Speaking of Queens, I'm sick of waiting around for an invitation to Buckingham Palace. Maybe Her Majesty is jealous of our new mansion. Well, fuck her, as we say in those private sidebars. Fuck her if she thinks she's too good for Amal Clooney. Let her see my closet and then decide who's a big deal, if it pleases the court.
Stella has been giving me the best pieces from her collection, and no one can wear high fashion like I can. I love to pair a $5,000 dress with gaudy cheap earrings, for example. I like to mix it up. That's what I tell my clients before we get down to business.
Do you think my nose looks too big? George's family in Kentucky likes to make fun of it. I know they're just stupid hillbillies, but still. I need to be the most gorgeous woman who ever lived. Also the skinniest. I need all the photographers to stop looking at George and his stupid Randee. I need to hear how elegant I am. Being this elegant is exhausting. It's worse than representing brutal dictators or what have you. It's just non-stop maneuvering.
George went out for cigarettes but now it's been at least two hours. If I didn't know how gorgeous I am, I would almost think he'd rather spend time with Randee.
Breaking down the bias of comfort films.
With the constant onslaught of complicated news that 2020 has brought, sometimes you just want to be able to shut off your brain, relax, and feel happy.
Enter comfort films. These are the feel-good movies that feel like a warm hug when you finish them, the ones that allow you to escape for a short while. We often turn to these types of films in times of trouble or extreme stress, and when we're not sure what films of this nature we should watch, we turn to the Internet for options.
We know Ellis Ross is fun and has an offbeat style, but her hairstyle felt like a caricature, and one that was completely unnecessary because there are Black women who have the kind of hair she seemed to be trying to mimic.
Black hair is political.
It is still a radical act for Black people to wear our hair just as it grows out of our heads.
Just as Black people are diverse, Black hair is inclusive of a broad range of colors, textures, density, and porosity. Terms like 3B and 4C are commonly used to describe hair types. While some people still think of hair types as a grading scheme, much like the debate about having "good hair," we are learning more about how hair types have specific care needs. As we grow deeper in love with ourselves and our hair, Black people are looking for the best products on the market and are committed to supporting Black businesses.
When Tracee Ellis Ross announced the launch of Pattern Beauty, there was a lot of buzz and excitement. A Black woman we love and whose hair has always been an unapologetically overwhelming feature was going to respond to Black hair care needs. Sign us up! Now, however, with her Elle magazine cover, some Black women are wondering if Ross is taking up too much of the Black hair space.
