Hot stuff celebrities love



BB King may be 87, but he still knows how to enjoy life. The legendary blues musician has teamed up with Spain’s Bodega Santa Cruz winery to release a bottle of red (a Garnacha-Cab-Syrah-blend), a bottle of white (citrusy, light Verdejo). B.B. King Signature Collection is distributed by Connecticut importer Votto Vines and sold for now at vinport.com for $13.99. Hang onto the colorful label; it may be worth something someday.


Sheila G. Mains always preferred the crispy edges of brownies, not the fudgy softer inside. So inside the baker’s Palm Beach Gardens kitchen a plan was hatched: Brownie Brittle, part crunchy chip, part chocolaty goodness. Mains’ latest flavors: Salted Caramel and Chocolate Chip Mint. Want cred? The snack was served at the “Silver Linings Playbook” premiere. C’mon, if it’s good enough for Bradley Cooper ...1-800-BROWNIE, browniebrittle.com


Love the beachy look but hate the smell of self tanners? The folks over at Jergens are on the case. Apparently, the main coloring ingredient in many gels and creams is dihydroxyacetone ( DHA), which interacts with the proteins in the skin and your own natural scent. Jergens experts determined which olfactory receptors perceived the ick and developed fragrances to pre-empt the odor to those receptors. Celebs like Nina Dobrev, Catt Sadler and Jamie Chung are already loving the new and improved Jergens Natural Glow collection. At mass retailers.


Randy Jackson may have voted himself off “American Idol,” but he’s still grooving. The music producer’s namesake American Tribute Collection guitar collection for HSN for Memorial Day and beyond features a solid body electric and an acoustic-electric in colors like signature Randy Blue, Racecar Red and White Diamond. The line pays homage to good old rock ‘n’ roll, adorned with stars and stripes and other patriotic details. HSN.com

    Amber Valletta comes clean: I’m a raging addict

    Amber Valletta isn’t playing the blame game. The model-actress (Hitch, Revenge, Transporter 2) talked candidly in a video for MindBodyGreen.com and takes full responsibility for her addiction to drugs and alcohol. In the clip, Valletta says she started young, sniffing markers while growing up in Oklahoma, then graduated to the hard stuff when she began posing for magazines. Even though she has been sober for 25 years, the self proclaimed raging addict still has moments when she wants to “distract herself” because she’s “uncomfortable being a human being.” The 40-year-old mother of one, who is married to volleyball player Chip McCaw, credits looking inward constantly to stay healthy.
