TSA Body Search Inspires Love

While most of us are dreading invasive TSA searches at the airport, one guy in Reno loved his enough to post a Missed Connection on Craigslist. Pretty sad that a TSA full-body pat down is the only action this guy is getting. Should someone email him and let him know that the dude who cupped…

Khloe Kardashian Talks About Statutory Rape

I think it’s really brave of Khloe Kardashian to talk about losing her virginity at age 14 on “The Joy Behar Show.” She says she was pressured by her 18-year-old boyfriend. Ahem, statutory rape. Khloe admits that for three years after the experience, she felt too uncomfortable with her body to have sex.

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Repulses Me”

When I asked my current boyfriend out, I was very clear to explain that I wanted something casual and certainly not monogamous. But somehow, he now thinks that we are a monogamous couple and is planning our future together. He keeps planning for events I don’t want to attend and talking as if we will…

PETA Weighs In On Airport Body Scans

Airports in New York, Las Vegas and Charlotte, North Carolina, have said “no” to a proposed PETA ad campaign of a skinny woman’s physique under a body scan X-ray with the words, “Be proud of your body scan: go vegan.” (The Vegas airport claimed they don’t post “political” ads.) Good to know that PETA i…

Nice Gams, Robert Downey Jr.!

Move over Zack Galifianakis, there’s a new bikini-clad beauty in town! “Vintage pinups are the pinnacle of art. Robert Downey Jr. is the pinnacle of sexy. It’s not rocket science,” says the internet meme genius/photoshop whiz who made this pic possible. Oh RDJ, we love it when you play coy! For more pics of Downey…

“Inferno” Director Says Replacing Lindsay Lohan Was The Right Thing To Do

“I love working with [Malin], she is sensitive and hard-working and I think it’s a great decision for our project. … I feel like 16 tons of weight are off my mind not having to deal with the Lindsay Lohan situation. We have not heard anything from Lindsay and her camp recently but we wish…

Black TV Newswoman Vows To “Go Natural” With Her Hair

At the beginning of reporter Rochelle Ritchie’s TV news career, she was told she had to get hair extensions. Like millions of black women, Rochelle has worn long, shiny extensions and wigs because she thought it made her look more professional. For six years, she “faithfully” wore wigs and weaves and progressed u…

Dater X: Playing Patti Stanger On A Bad Date

As I leaned forward and sent my 10-pound ball careening down the center of the lane, I could feel Blondie staring at my butt. Normally, this is a thing I love, but tonight, all I felt was supremely uncomfortable. The pins flew in the air in a jumble, but it was hard to be too…

Would You Wear: House Of Dereon Spring 2011 Shoes?

Photos of the spring 2011 shoe collection from Beyonce’s House of Dereon have hit the web. And I’m completely underwhelmed because all these styles look really familiar. Similar incarnations of that gladiator sandal, for instance, made their debut two summers ago and were extremely popular this past summer. And the black and white sandal and…

And The Prize For The Unsexiest Sex Writing Goes To …

Take a bow, Rowan Somerville, you’ve written some spectacularly unsexy sex stuff. At least according to the Literary Review, which doles out an annual award to the worst sex writing in fiction. Somerville beat out authors Jonathan Franzen, Craig Raine, Adam Moss and a slew of others for his unappealing descriptions of sex in the…

All Of Johnny Depp’s Characters Are Gay

“They couldn’t stand him. They just couldn’t stand him. I think it was Michael Eisner, the head of Disney at the time, who was quoted as saying, ‘He’s ruining the movie.’ Upper-echelon Disney-ites, going, What’s wrong with him? Is he, you know, like some kind of weird simpleton? Is he drunk? By the way, i…

Um, No: Ch’Arms, The Bodyshapers For Your Arms

You can blame Michelle Obama for this one. Thanks, Mobama, for making America so obsessed with your sculpted guns. Of course, most of us are too lazy to work out hardcore enough to actually attain Mobama-worthy results. So now there are shaping devices for your arms to fake having toned limbs. In the bizarro mixed-u…

Girl Talk: I’m Dating My Dad

For most of my 15-year dating career, I went for Fledglings, Makeshift Men, pre-release beta tests of the fully formed adult male. Like Rusty, the dread-locked guitarist with groupies to spare whom I followed to various smoky, sticky-floored venues in college, hoping he’d recognize me from anthropology class. Guys whose giant charisma, outsider cool or…

A Winter Hat To Tap Into Your Animal Instincts

Guess what: winter sucks. If you live in the Eastern hemisphere like we do, you know that starting December 1st or so, it can be nearly impossible to go outside and feel even moderately warm. You need armor. And preferably something heavy-duty that doesn’t look crazy (read: no homemade mustache knit caps or scary bank…

The First Image Of “Breaking Dawn” Is Feather-Tastic

Behold, the first official image from “Breaking Dawn.” Director Bill Condon decided to go a little arty with it, rather than just show you Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson‘s purdy faces. So what’s going on here? Bella and Edward have just gotten hitched, and as they, uh, consummate the marriage, Edward bites a pillow. Hence,…
