The Year Wouldn’t Be Complete Without A Kathie Lee Gifford BJ Faux Pas

Thank you, Kathie Lee Gifford, for all the joy you’ve brought us this year on “The Today Show.” Thank you for day drinking and doing silly things.

Pro-Lifers Spank Ron Paul For Not “Rescuing” Aborted Fetus From Trash Can

I don’t even know why we’re talking about Republican Ron Paul, because he is never going to be president. (Unless Kelly Clarkson gets her way.) But I do find it entertaining that his campaign ad called “Life,” about his opposition to abortion — despite otherwise being all “get the government out of people’s business!” —…

Bristol Palin and her 17-year-old sister Willow Palin want to star in a “Kardashian-style” reality show, along with Bristol’s boyfriend.

I’m really just a science nerd at heart, so this chart of weird facts about the human body makes me very happy. It also makes me want to play Operation. I used to love that game! But I digress. Point being: I find it edifying to know, for instance, that I’m not just imagining it…

Finding God In A Vibrator

I once spent a 4th of July weekend with about 15 hardcore evangelical Christians. (Ex-Mr. Jessica’s sister was a born-again.)

Did Rihanna And Chris Brown Secretly Tweet Each Other?

Rihanna and Chris Brown appear to have sent each other “secret love tweets”—and by “secret,” we mean completely public messages posted on a social networking site. The “secret” part?

#Pandagate Gets Taiwanese Animation
