She shows up in your living room every week as Rachel Green, but now you can get to know the real person behind one of your favorite "Friends." Jennifer Aniston has a new interactive show on Voxxy, a Web site for teen girls (at www.voxxy.com).
On "Jen XX," Aniston will chat with some of entertainment's most famous names (her first online gabfest featured singer Melissa Etheridge). She'll also talk to regular girls about topics like acting, spirituality, body image and relationships. Plus she'll dish a little dirt about her start in the business, people who've inspired her and projects she's working on.
You've seen the commercials -- now you can wear the shoes. Nike Shox (you know, the shoes behind the "boing" ad campaign) are here.
A special suspension system in the heel makes the shoe "spring" back, though there's no guarantee you'll hear the boing from the commercials. The shoes come in several styles, designed for running and basketball. They're about $150, at shoe stores nationwide. A little skeptical about the whole thing? Visit www.nike.com/nikeshox for details about how it all works.
