michelle on work and babies

"i've already got the script. i've read a bit of it but i still don't know if i'll have any romantic scenes with jackie [chan]."
- michelle reis

former miss hong kong, michelle reis, was extremely gracious in answering the prying questions of the press after the ed hardy event at prive tonight. on family life and her in-laws: "they always encourage me to put career first. for instance, if we are having dinner and i have to leave early because i have a work commitment, they never give me pressure. i am very blessed to have such understanding in-laws who offer me such professional freedom. they do not expect me to have children either. if kids come, then that would be great, but since they have grand and great-grand children already, they are not too bothered. i am very lucky and do not live the life of a 'tai-tai' as you all perceive."

farmer liz

"to the paparazzi: why don't you all go and f*** yourselves up the a*se."
- liz hurley

now liz hurley can add "farmer" to her resume. five years ago, she bought a farm in gloucestershire and started to raise a rare breed of gloucester cattle, all the while putting the farm under conservation. today, it has full organic status and supplies to butchers and restaurants in the area. not only that, she is launching her own line of organic fruit (strawberry & cherry, orange & cranberry) and oat (banana & chocolate and orange & chocolate) bars as well as beef jerkey. all of her products are organic and certified by the soil association with some (not all) of the ingredients coming off her farm. go, liz.

only a plane-ride away

"the heavyweight credit card. now heavier."
- american express platinum

instead of putting your distant cousin/ex-colleague/high-school frenemy's address on your "ships to us only" purchases, you can now adopt an address with people there who will actually forward on your package to you immediately. why didn't anyone think of this until now? from now until 31 december, american express cardmembers can even enjoy 10% off each shipment they place through borderlinx. look out sephora.
