Coming in at number two right after Lesbian Chic on the list of 2008's hottest celebrity trends is the slim fast phenomenon sweeping the pounds off Catherine Zeta-Jones' ass, Britney Spears' arms, and pretty much every inch of co-starvation partners Katie Holmes and Victoria Beckham. But of course, when Queen of Female Mind Control Oprah Winfrey puts in her two cents on the dieting front, every housewife and Oprah wannabe begins taking dutiful notes on how exactly she'll take a few pounds off this time around. And according to a piece in the NY Daily News, Detox is the word.

We sort through all the fishy and not-so-fishy details after the jump, and leave it to you to tell us whether or not we should "bite the hook," as Bobby Brown would say.
Wanna be the coolest kid on your block? Then don't buy the B'phone! Yes, Beyoncé has a brand new phone out by Samsung, and for a mere $99 you get a Beyoncé themed start-up screen as well as the ability to download exclusive Beyoncé photos, videos, and music— including a song she recorded when she was 10. As Beyoncé said in a press conference yesterday, "It's only through this phone that you can get this close to my life."
Us Weekly and Star are kind of okay to be seen reading on the subway (kitsch factor), but People is for Midwestern soccer moms now and forever. Aren't you lucky that we read it so you don't have to?
