“Jersey Circus” Is A Comic “Situation”

Just when you thought the internet couldn’t fold in on itself anymore than it already has, welcome to Jersey Circus. It’s where squeaky clean Family Circus cartoons meet the herpes-spreading cast of MTV juggernaut “Jersey Shore.” Where comic strips meet the stripper pole. Bil Keane is rolling over in his grave — or getting psyched…

“Bachelor Pad”: Who’s Doing What With Whom In Episode 4

Click here to see larger image.
Last night’s episode of “Bachelor Pad” was all about pitting the women of the house against each other and making them feel like dog crap. First, the contestants were all asked to complete a survey about their fellow houseguests — who do they think is the most shallow, the…

Diablo Cody Talks Trailer Trash With Megan Fox

I’m so into the idea of Diablo Cody‘s new web series, Red Band Trailer, where she invites celebs like Chelsea Handler, Jason Bateman, and Megan Fox to her Airstream trailer to talk trash with them. Megan Fox starts off the interview by calling the very preggo Diablo Cody “huge.” Megan, don’t insult the…

Samantha Ronson’s Bulldog Bites, Kills Maltese

As a dog owner, it makes me incredibly sad to hear that Samantha Ronson‘s pet bulldog Cadillac killed a Maltese in their apartment building yesterday. Apparently, somehow Cadillac (that’s Lindsay Lohan walking him, left) got out of Ronson’s apartment while she was sleeping and attacked Tiger the Maltese and her owner in the building’s hallway.

Miner Asks Long-Term GF For Hand In Marriage

What influences a man’s decision to ask for a woman’s hand in marriage? If you’re Chilean miner Esteban Rojas, it’s being trapped in a mine for more than a month. Yesterday, Esteban, who’s been stuck in a mine shaft for more than a month along with 32 others, sent a letter up asking his girlfriend…

15 Signs You’re More Than Just Friends

A couple weeks ago, I posted a list of 15 signs you’re just friends to help those of you in male-female friendships determine whether your pal is strictly a pal and nothing more. If you’re still feeling a little unsure what the status of your relationship is, maybe today’s list will help you a little…

Don’t Cry, Anne Hathaway, It’s Just A Wig!

Anne Hathaway looks a little morose on the set of “One Day” in Paris. Luckily, that’s not a bad haircut — it’s just a wig. So cheer up! [New York City]…

Demi Moore Does It Doggie-Style

Demi Moore got down with the Doggfather, Snoop Dogg, at his concert in Las Vegas this past weekend. I had no idea Demi had so much street cred. Ashton, on the other hand, was a wallflower. Or maybe he was just too lifted to move. [Huffington Post]…

Girl Talk: Falling In Love After Losing 100+ Pounds

In my early 20s, I wore size 24 jeans and my enormous boobs demanded an H-cup bra, a letter no woman should have to associate with lingerie sizing. I couldn’t fit into restaurant booths or through the subway turnstile. I even once held up an entire roller coaster ride at Six Flags so I could…

Dictionaries Going The Way Of The Dinosaurs: Oxford Says No More Print Editions

Thanks in part to the ubiquitousness of computers, kids no longer know how to write in cursive — and soon they will also probably stop using actual books. The Oxford English Dictionary announced this week that it will no longer be publishing a print edition and will only be available online.

What Do We Think Of Hot Men Undressing To Sell Maxi Pads?

We ladies don’t get too much eye candy in TV commercials. The advertising motto “sex sells” seems only to apply to fake breasts selling body spray and beer. But all that is changed by Stayfree’s new series of YouTube commercials, “A Date With …” Three hunks who take off their shirts, three dream…

A Dance Battle Video Like No Other

Step off, “Step Up 3-D” — there’s a new supreme dance battle in town. In this hilarious video from Brit band Groove Armada, a ballet dancer and a street dancer go head-to-head — in a war of not-very-good dancing — and unwittingly demonstrate how we’d probably dance if we were ever challenged by a bunch…

The Cast Of “Dancing With The Stars” Speaks

Last night, during a commercial break from “Bachelor Pad,” “Dancing with the Stars” unveiled its new cast members. And as we’d suspected, the new cast includes: Bristol Palin, Audrina Patridge, Brandy, Jennifer Grey, Florence Henderson, The Situation, Michael Bolton, and David Hasselhoff. The surprises? That the amazing Margaret Cho will be rumba-ing alongside them. Other…

Dear Wendy: “Should I Befriend My Ex-Boyfriend’s New Girlfriend?”

One of my first really serious adult relationships happened when I was in my early- to mid-20s. We ended things after about three years, two of which we spent living together, and although our breakup was extremely heart-wrenching and hurtful, over the years we have been able to develop a much stronger relationship as friends.

Haphazardly Ladylike

Some people prefer to carry their prints rather than wear them. So on these occasions, a tote covered in an attention-grabbing pattern is welcome. Stussy’s Future Cat Travel Tote has the shape of a lady’s purse but a haphazard print that is non-conformist. The bag is a nice addition to a simple jeans-and-T-shirt look or…

Absolute “Mad”-ness On Rolling Stone

“Mad Men”‘s Jon Hamm is on the cover of Rolling Stone with three more hot women than his character deserves: January Jones in regal gold, Elisabeth Moss in body-hugging dusty rose, and Christina Hendricks in a little red, five-alarm-fire of a dress. I love how this cover is demure by Rolling Stone standards but it…

Kim Kardashian Thinks Khloe Has A Nice Vajayjay

Now, I am aware that “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” is not exactly high-brow television. I mean, you’re never going to see two of the family members debate the symbolism in James Joyce’s Ulysses. But still, I’m sometimes shocked by how low the series sinks sometimes. We’ve seen Kourtney give Khloe an at-home bikini

Quotable: Sandra Bullock On Louis, Her “Little Cajun Cookie”

“I think everything works out the way the universe wants it to work out. We don’t have any boys in our family. Boy, is everyone really happy about that. So he’s like the crown prince … He’s my little Cajun cookie.”
Sandra Bullock talking about her adopted son, Louis, on today’s “Today.” I wonder how…
