The ’90s It Girls You Wanted (and Still Kind of Want) to Be

Ahh, the '90s. A time of "Sassy" and "Jane" magazines, MTV playing actual music videos, and devastatingly overtweezed eyebrows. We've brought back many of the decade's biggest trends, from Doc Martens and babydoll dresses to chokers and Lisa Frank - we've even rebooted some of the classic shows, like "Boy Meets World," "Full House," and "The X-Files." In addition to the fashion, beauty, and entertainment highlights that have made their way back, there are lots of celebrities who had a huge '90s heyday and are still serving serious style now. Stars like Halle Berry, Naomi Campbell, and Winona Ryder have continued to inspire us, just like they did when we idolized them as teenagers. Yes, we can sing the praises of Hailey Bieber, Lori Harvey, and the Kardashian-Jenners all day, but before them came a crop of impossibly cool women who paved the way and showed us that there were so many different ways to be strong and smart and not take any sh*t.

TikTok’s Cheese-Filled Pizza Bombs Look Just Like Mini Pumpkins

The pumpkin patch has never looked more delicious. TikTok's latest fall food trend gives pizza bites a major facelift, transforming them into miniature pumpkin-shaped "pizza bombs" you'll want to make all year round. In addition to their obvious aesthetic appeal, this seasonal snack is also totally customizable and kid-friendly - designed to be pulled apart and dunked in a complementary marinara sauce. With a combined total of 39.7 million views on TikTok, the pumpkin-shaped pizzas provide a savory and exceptionally finger-friendly alternative to all of the upcoming Halloween sweets (not that we're complaining). To make the pumpkins, chef Genevieve LaMonaca - the trend's creator - starts by dividing pizza dough into six portions, rolling each one into a ball and flattening to create the desired roundness. Top each mini pizza with your choice of cheese and meat (focusing the ingredients in the center), then pull and pinch the sides together at the top to reinforce the pizza bomb's structural integrity. From here, tie the dough up with four pieces of butcher's twine to create the pumpkin-esque lines in the pizzas. Brush on some garlic herb butter, and bake at 400°F for about 16 minutes. A halved pretzel stick serves as the perfect stem, and bonus points if you can find a pumpkin-shaped dish for your preferred dipping sauce. Although the exact fillings vary, LaMonaca used shredded mozzarella, ham, pepperoni, and sliced olives, while others opted for ricotta, mozzarella slices, and marinara. Chizoba Uwakwe, another food TikToker whose creation is pictured above, made her own version with Italian sausage, turkey pepperoni, and veggies, brushing with paprika to give the pumpkin bombs some extra color. Commenters were quick to weigh in on LaMonaca's recent post, sharing their ideas for other modifications, like dyeing the pretzel stem green or using biscuit dough instead of pizza dough. The only issue? "They're too cute to eat!" one user wrote. Read on to learn how to re-create the viral pumpkin pizza bombs from the comfort of your own kitchen. @chefgenevieve Pumpkin Shaped Pizza Bombs #TargetHalloween #MakeItCinematic #tiktokhalloween #learnontiktok #halloween ♬ Teddy Bears Picnic - Henry Hall @chizobacu 🎃 Pumpkin Shaped Pizza Bombs These were soo good!

Feel free to customize the filling based on your own preferences, and enjoy with your favorite dipping sauce. Ingredients1 can/sheet pizza dough 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese 1/2 cup chopped ham 1/2 cup chopped pepperoni 1/8 cup optional sliced black olives 1/4 cup melted butter 2 cups marinara sauce 4 pieces butcher's twine Directions Roll six sections of pizza dough into balls, and flatten into circles. Combine mozzarella, ham, pepperoni, and olives in a separate bowl for the filling. Scoop the filling into the center of the dough. Pull and pinch the sides of the dough to seal the pumpkin bombs (careful to cover any holes). Use four pieces of butcher's twine to create a star shape, and put the pumpkin bomb in the center, seal side down. Tie the twine across the pumpkin, and double knot at the top, cutting off any excess. Put pizza bombs on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and brush with garlic herb butter. Bake in 400°F oven for about 16 minutes (or until golden brown). Let the pumpkin bombs cool off, and remove the twine. Enjoy!

Superstar Sisters Zooey and Emily Deschanel Also Have Famous Parents

Emily Deschanel and her sister, Zooey Deschanel, have been gracing our screens for years, but did you know that success in Hollywood has been in the family for generations? The Deschanels' parents were both established in the entertainment industry long before the birth of their daughters. Their father, Caleb Deschanel, is an Oscar-nominated cinematographer. He was first nominated for an Academy Award in cinematography in 1983 for the film "The Right Stuff," followed by "The Natural" in 1984 and "Fly Away Home" in 1996. Additionally, 2000's "The Patriot," 2004's "The Passion of Christ," and 2018's "Never Look Away" all netted him nominations. He is also a member of the National Film Preservation Board of the Library of Congress. Their mother, Mary Jo Deschanel, is an actor. She is perhaps best known for playing recurring character Eileen Hayward in "Twin Peaks." She went on to appear in the movie "The Patriot" and had roles in "Law and Order: Trial by Jury" and "Ruby Sparks," and portrayed Hayward again in "Twin Peaks: The Missing Pieces" in 2014. Emily, the pair's oldest child, was born in 1976. Her first role was in 1994's "It Could Happen to You," and her big break came through her role as Temperance Brennan on "Bones." Zooey was born in 1980, and her career began with the TV show "Veronica's Closet," which aired in 1998. She went on to appear in major features like "Elf" and "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," and she also launched a musical duo, She & Him, in 2008. The siblings apparently had a tense relationship growing up. "I would tell her . . . that I'd [hurt] her sister and taken over her body, and that I was going to kill her next," Emily revealed in a 2012 interview with Conan O'Brien. Fortunately, she said that the siblings now "get along now very well." The pair also grew closer when they both had babies within two months of each other in 2015, with Zooey telling Jimmy Kimmel that it was "amazing" and they "couldn't have planned it better," per Broadway World. Zooey shares two kids, Elsie Otter and Charlie Wolf, with her ex-husband Jacob Pechenik. Emily also has two children, Henry and Calvin, with her husband David Hornsby. Ahead, check out some photos of the family. Related: Maya Hawke Describes Her Famous Family as the "Boring, Indie Kardashians"

Chace Crawford’s Dating History, From Carrie Underwood to Rebecca Rittenhouse

People have been curious about Chace Crawford's love life since his early "Gossip Girl" days. The 38-year-old actor, who currently stars as The Deep on "The Boys," has had only had three confirmed relationships - although there have been plenty of rumored romances, including relationships with "Dancing With the Stars"'s Erin Andrews and "Twilight"'s Ashley Greene. Gossip has also swirled about possible hookups with everyone from "Gossip Girl's" Taylor Momsen to Lauren Conrad, although those are most likely just rumors. While his relationships with Blake Lively's Serena and Leighton Meester's Blair on "Gossip Girl" were deeply chaotic and dramatic, Crawford's personal love life seems much more laid-back. The actor, who grew up in Texas and made his film debut in the 2006 supernatural drama "The Covenant," was cast as Nate Archibald in "Gossip Girl" in March 2007 and quickly become one of TV's most desirable bachelors. As for whether or not he's currently single, Crawford told Us Weekly in 2019, "I've been dating around a little bit, but, you know, nothing serious." In 2022, he confirmed he was still on the market, telling Bustle that "LA's a tough [dating pool]." Keep reading for a quick recap of Crawford's dating history over the years.

Introducing Reese’s Spine-Chilling New Halloween Treat: Peanut Butter Skeletons

Image Source: POPSUGAR Photography / Chanel Vargas Trick-or-treaters, beware: the candy bowl may look extra spooky this year thanks to Reese's new Peanut Butter Skeletons. Just in time for Halloween, chocolate lovers have noticed the individually wrapped sweets popping up in candy aisles nationwide. "Getting these cuties for sure!!!" one Instagram commenter wrote. Colorful and cute, the Halloween chocolates are already flying off the shelves. Like Reese's traditional Peanut Butter Cups, the Halloween skeletons are stuffed with peanut butter filling and covered in milk chocolate. As a seasonal twist, each skeleton wrapper is hiding a spine-chilling surprise. On the outside, the chocolates are decorated to resemble skeleton vampires, skeleton pirates, and more. Once you peel away their costumes wrappers, though, the treats all bear the same wavy skeleton silhouette. Each design even has eye sockets shaped like the brand's signature peanut butter cups, ridges and all. If you can't choose how to dress up for Halloween, you can even stick your hand in a bowl of the chocolates and let the luck of the draw decide. The Peanut Butter Skeletons are currently available nationwide at most retailers, including CVS, Michaels, Stop & Shop, and Giant. While pricing varies depending on where you find them, we have a feeling the sweets are going to go quickly no matter where you shop. Over the last several Halloweens, the brand has gotten equally creative with the spooky theme, releasing chocolates shaped like jack-o'-lanterns, ghosts, and bats. Hershey's has also sold green Franken-cups inspired by Frankenstein's monster, ghostly white chocolate snacks, and strawberry-crème-filled Vampire Kisses. With several days to come before Halloween, we have our fingers crossed for even more holiday-themed treats: dark chocolate haunted houses? Pumpkin-spice peanut butter cups? Miniature candy "apples" stuffed with caramel crème? Like most of our favorite fall treats and Halloween decor, the spooky Peanut Butter Skeletons are only available for a limited time, so be sure to stock up next time you find yourself in the candy aisle. After all, it doesn't hurt to have a little extra chocolate in the house, whether you're filling up snack bowls for trick-or-treaters or enjoying the sweets while you watch your favorite Halloween movie.
