It seems this year she has been voted at the top and the bottom of the outfit pole. Sometimes she’s put together and fashionable, and other times she’s, well, covered in meat. Here’s the best and worst of Lady Gaga:

Best:

**Even though the character was annoying, Gaga looked great in the outfit!

Worst:

Lady Gaga definitely has more good outfits than bad, and her unique sense of fashion is changing the industry. Who knows, maybe the fashion of 2012 will include studded platforms, and meat dresses. Fashion is an ever changing world.

‎”Two and a Half Men” director to produce WQED talk show in Pittsburgh, Beginning December 2012

16 Dec

Glitzburgh has recently learned that Two and a Half Men director, Jamie Widdoes, is returning to his hometown of Pittsburgh to produce a WQED talk show about female empowerment and girls’ self-esteem that will begin this month.

According to a September 2011 press release, “it’s the first program of the new Pittsburgh Innovative Media Incubator, a co-venture between WQED and the Steeltown Entertainment Project, a local nonprofit advocating to make the region an entertainment production center. The incubator is funded by a grant from the Richard King Mellon Foundation.”

According to some reports, the show will also be offered in syndication to broadcasters such as the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN!)

“It’s been a dream of mine for many years to come home and produce in Pittsburgh,” Widdoes said in a statement. “I can’t think of a better place for a project like this. From the moment I was on the [set of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, I’ve wanted to do something in that studio.”
