This week, Blake Lively launched her own lifestyle website, Preserve (yes, its actual name) -- the result was terrifying. Why is it that the blandest celebrities are the ones who have the lifestyle websites? Lively, like Gwyneth Paltrow, has maintained a perfectly manufactured image, with a persona about as radiant as burned toast. Where's the fun in that? If anything, it's the following people who should have lifestyle websites -- the Derek Zoolanders of our world, the celebrities who have no business telling us how to live. Their lifestyles may not be worth emulating, but their websites would be way more fun:
