TV Shows That Are Complete Rip Offs

DJ AM, who you may remember as the other survivor in a plane crash along with Travis Barker, has a new show set to debut on MTV. The plane crash wasn't the first time DJ AM, aka Adam Goldstein, defied death. Eleven years ago, he was a crack addict who attempted suicide, but fortunately the…

The “Househusbands Of Hollywood” Are True Home Boys

Some people say they're sick of all the shows about housewives, trophy wives, and other kept women. Well, now they can see how the other side -- the househusband -- lives.

Sherri Shepherd Loses Her Bikini Wax Virginity

Brave, brave Sheri Shepherd shows us how hilarious a bikini wax can truly be. Not only do you feel her pain, but you feel so wrong for laughing at it. First of all, I'm surprised she was not told in advance, or even worse that she didn't ask what kind of wax she was getting.

Topshop Goes Goth: Do We Like?

It's Halloween in July, apparently. "Horror Girl" is a new, mostly black, mostly lacy collection at Topshop, the U.K. (and now U.S.) clothing store. They've got a white vest with "Be Afraid" across the front, a blazer with the words "Vampire Kiss" written in blood-red on the inside lining, and burgundy, five-inch studded platform heels

Stay Far, Far Away From This Yoga Farm!

This is, by far, one of the creepiest videos I have ever seen. There are so many weird things about it, I don't even know where to start. But I'd like to say that the guy's jeans are so tight I'm surprised he can do yoga at all, let alone put his head between hi…

Newsweek Spreads The Polyamorous Love

I think there is a polyamorous trio living in my apartment building. A man and a woman live together, with their dog, two floors above me; on my floor there is a second man, who lives with his dog. I think the three of them are together because we walk our dogs at the same…

“To The Guillotine!” Says Ikea

Capital punishment meets modern design, predictably at a low cost and with a name you can't pronounce. Once you manage to assemble Ikea's sleek SOKKOMB guillotine, you'll be able to carry out justice by ridding the world of traitors, those who commit crimes against liberty, and any remaining relatives of Louis XVI. With its natural…

Yes, There Is Now A Snuggie For Dogs

I mean, it was only a matter of time. Amelia spotted this "Snuggie For Dogs," and the best thing about the infomercial (after the jump, as the video auto plays) is not only the prize-winning script, but also the fact that it is REAL. The sales pitch is so similar to the human Snuggie ad…

Magic 8 Ball Says “Outlook Not So Good” for Stormy Daniels’ Political Career

It’s stormy weather for porn star Stormy Daniels. Back in February, Stormy announced that she wanted to run for Senate in Louisiana, against Republican David Vitter, who's one of the dudes linked to the DC Madam.

Quick Pic: Sonogram Cakes!

If you’re not quite artistic enough to make one of those diaper cake things people always give at baby showers, maybe this gift will be a little more up your alley. A sonogram cake! It may seem a little icky at first, but it’s totally foolproof and most likely delicious. Just get a pic of…

Gay Rights: What Would MLK Do?

The Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the civil rights group founded by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., is trying to fire Reverend Eric Lee, the president of its Los Angeles Chapter, because he supports gay marriage and dissed Prop 8.

Models Live Messily, Just Like Us!

We already know that models like to blog like us, but here's a home tour we can really relate to as well. The Selby, this is not. Downtown photographer Kathy Lo snapped equally downtown-dwelling model, Hanne Gaby Odiele, in her messy, normal gal-looking apartment. See how the fashionable half lives—when they don't pay someone to…
