Third time's a charm: One of our favorite boutiques, Satine, just opened up its third location — this time on Abbot Kinney in Venice. Stocked with a handful of Japanese ready-to-wear lines, owner Jeannie Lee told WWD that the new outpost was inspired by boutiques she saw in Tokyo. (WWD)
Aching for some new Homeland spoilers? Showtime's president David Nevins talked to Variety about what's next for Carrie Mathison — apparently we'll "see her on the ground in a foreign capital" — and how the show will go on without Damian Lewis. (Variety)
Remember when Arrested Development's Lucille told a waiter, "If I wanted something your thumb touched, I'd eat the inside of your ear"? Well, we'd imagine she could get behind this one: A new California food-safety law requires chefs and even bartenders to wear gloves at all times when preparing food and drinks. (L.A. Times)
After Museum of Contemporary Art director Jeffrey Deitch resigned last year — amid no shortage of controversy — MOCA has finally appointed his successor. Taking the top spot: Philippe Vergne, a director of the Dia Art Foundation in New York. (Complex)
Some people might pick up a second job to help pay for college, but others take more creative routes — like, say, signing up to find a sugar daddy online. The website SeekingArrangement.com describes these so-called sugar babies as "the beneficiaries in financially compensated relationships." And, according to the site's data, L.A.'s very own USC is #8 on the list of top 20 schools with the most sugar babies. Just a little ammo for you Bruins. (LA Weekly)
