This HuffPost Live interview with Romeo Rose —the guy behind “Sleepless In Austin,” a blog offering money to someone who can introduce him to a woman who fits his absurd list of racist, slut-shaming requirements — doesn’t just have me wondering why this one person is sucking up so much media attention with his opinio…

I’m So Disappointed That Dolce & Gabbana’s $4,150 Crown Is Sold Out

In the context of fashion, the term “aspirational” only goes so far. A $500 pair of shoes, a $1,000 dress, a $2,000 purse: these things are aspirational, to be sure. But a $4,150 Dolce & Gabbana gold-plated Swarovski crystal crown? That veers straight off the track of aspirations and directly into “fucking ridiculous” territory. Which…

Cher’s List Of “25 Things” Is Amazing Beyond My Wildest Dreams

There are very few earthbound humans (to my knowledge, at least) who do eccentric better than Cher. At age 67, with over 40 years in the industry under her belt, she’s as fabulously nutty as ever, and has just released her first album in 12 years.

But even I surprised myself when my fiance…
