Now you can buy Bar Refaeli’s Undeez


NEW YORK ( — Bar Refaeli revealed that she is starting an online casual lingerie company called with fellow Israeli model Dudi Balsar.

The website will be fully functional in early November, and the merchandise is billed as basic and for everyone. According to the Israeli financial newspaper Globes, Undeez has raised $1 million from Israeli investors. Balsar came up with the idea, and Refaeli is responsible for marketing and business development — she’s hoping to use her popularity as leverage.

Refaeli told Elle magazine that through Undeez, “you’ll be able to buy clothes — underwear, socks and T-shirts for men and women — in very soft, basic fabrics. I started the site with a friend because when I like a pair of underwear, I’ll get 30 pairs of it in the same color. But I don’t have time to go buy underwear all the time. And I had boyfriends who were the same way — they never had time to go buy socks and underwear, that’s for sure! — so this website is great because after subscribing, you get these necessities sent directly to you each month.”

Oprah at the Mikvah
Oprah Winfrey made a stop at the ritual bath but didn’t take the plunge.

The trip to a Chabad Lubavitch mikvah in Brooklyn Heights (not the “Heights” one typically associates with Chabad) was filmed for an episode of her new series, "Oprah’s Next Chapter," which will premiere in January on her OWN Network, Oprah’s new cable channel.

“I have never even seen a single one of her shows,” said Bronya Shaffer, who showed Oprah around the mikvah, in an interview with The Brooklyn Paper. “When I told Oprah’s producer that I didn’t know anything about her work, she said, ‘That’s refreshing!’ "

Oprah also met with Chasidic families and filmed segments for the show in Borough Park and Crown Heights.

New Amy Winehouse Album
Every time Amy Winehouse was spotted coming out of a recording studio or with mega-producer Mark Ronson, fans would become hopeful that the follow-up to 2006′s breakthrough album, "Back to Black," would soon be released. Alas, she passed away from alcohol poisoning before her third record could be completed.

But now her label has announced that Winehouse’s third (and final) collection of songs will debut in December, just in time for holiday shopping season, according to E! Online. The new album will be called "Lioness: Hidden Treasures" and will boast 12 songs — some new, some previously unheard versions of her earlier work, and some covers of classic songs.

The songs on "Lioness" were produced by Ronson and Salaam Remi, both of whom had worked with Winehouse on her previous efforts. "It quickly became apparent to Salaam and Mark that they had a collection of songs that deserved to be heard, a collection of songs that were a fitting testament to Amy the artist and, as importantly, Amy their friend," the label said.
