Like Jennifer Garner, Halle Berry and other Hollywood moms out there, actress Jaime Pressly isn’t all that thrilled about the paparazzi.
While at a press day for her upcoming movie, ”A Haunted House 2,” the actress — who’s also the mother of 6-year-old Dezi Calvo – sounded off on what she thought of shutterbugs hounding her child when they’re out in public. Read more on Celebuzz…
The Easter Bunny came early this year to the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden for the annual gorilla egg hunt, the first for gorilla baby Gladys. The one-year-old baby made national headlines last year when she was rejected by her biological mother at zoo in Texas; she is now being raised by a surrogate gorilla mommy in Ohio, with whom she did the Easter egg hunt. It looks like the baskets were popular as hats. Silly gorilla, that’s not what you do with an Easter basket. [YouTube]
I have yet to see “Frozen,” but that damn “Let It Go” song is inescapable. I was on the verge of totally hating it, but then I saw this “Game of Thrones”/”Frozen” mashup, with lyrics like ”Who’s the hero on this show? / Tyrion? That new guy? Even book readers don’t know,” and I had a new appreciation. I wonder if the same approach would work with another song I’m sick of like, say, a “Happy”/”Hannibal” mashup? Hmm. [Rolling Stone]
Patricia Cudd, a Colorado woman, has been living in a motel room with her dog Sherlock for the past several years. However, her time there is coming to an end – Cudd has Stage 4 breast cancer and doctors have told her she only has a few months left to live.
She tearfully told 9News, “I laid awake all night because I have so many things I still want to do.” Instead, life has dealt her a hand she didn’t choose. What she can choose, however, is where Sherlock will live after she’s gone. Keep reading »
Leah Green, a producer for The Guardian recently created a viral video in which she harasses men in the ways that women are typically harassed on the street. She goes up to guys complimenting their asses and asking if they’d like to go home with her, making them uncomfortable in the ways that women are made to feel on a daily basis.
In honor of that, we’ve created a little list of some of the more common ways in which guys talk to girls. Most of you ladies will have encountered many, if not all of these pick-up tactics multiple times. Guys, check to see if your approach is on the list — if so you may want to get a new one.

Are you acquainted with the dangerously high, strappy stiletto yet? You must have seen her around. She’s uber skinny and about four-inches tall. Full disclosure: we’re frenemies. She’s the classic intimidatingly beautiful friend who accompanies you to parties and makes you feel sexier by association, but then steals the show. A few minutes in, she starts nagging you, demanding attention, and insisting that it’s time to leave. You think, We got all dressed up for this shit and NOW YOU CALL IT QUITS? You are only on your second drink and realize alcohol and stilettos don’t mix. She has prematurely reached the wobbly stage of the night and may faceplant at any moment. You think you’ve learned your lesson and vow to only hang out with your reliable BFF the low block heel, but always find yourself taking stiletto back again. Sigh…
This ad for Weight Watchers “Smart Ones” frozen meals popped up before a YouTube video I was watching, and I actually had to watch it twice all the way through to realize it wasn’t some kind of satire or parody. Unfortunately, it’s real. And it’s terrible.
“We brought women like you together in Times Square,” reads the opening title, over a whimsical soundtrack. “It was time to ‘fess up.” This is followed by women (only women, no men) sheepishly admitting to the camera that they like buttered popcorn, or that they once ate cake frosting for breakfast, or that they have a weakness for mini cupcakes. Their confessions are shown on a huge screen in Times Square for all to see (while the women cover their faces in shame), before being digitally erased and replaced with a message: “Congratulations, you now have a clean slate!” Women are then shown cheering and triumphantly holding up empty plates, which they are presumably only to fill with microwavable, highly processed meals from now until eternity. Or maybe, in an ideal world, they just wouldn’t eat at all?
Weight Watchers, I have three words for you: Fuck. This. Noise. Here’s why: Keep reading »
A team of golden retrievers helped Newtown recover from the Sandy Hook tragedy; the next year, they went to Boston after the marathon bombing. With another race approaching, the comfort dogs are visiting Boston once again. Read more on Newser…
Good vision is something that many of us take for granted, but that can change in the blink of an eye! There are simple things we should be doing, even in our 20s, to make sure that our eyes stay in good working order for the long term. And this is important for women especially, since recent studies show that we experience serious vision issues, including permanent vision loss, twice as often as men! Keep reading »
NASA has come up with a thoroughly modern way to celebrate Earth Day this year, and it’s waaaaayyy easier than planting a tree or taking the bus. The most cutting edge scientific agency in the world wants you to take a selfie. Yes, seriously. The project is called #GlobalSelfie, and here’s the lowdown from NASA’s website:
NASA astronauts brought home the first ever images of the whole planet from space. Now NASA satellites capture new images of Earth every second. For Earth Day we are trying to create an image of Earth from the ground up while also fostering a collection of portraits of the people of Earth. Once those pictures stream around the world on Earth Day, the individual pictures tagged #GlobalSelfie will be used to create a mosaic image of Earth — a new “Blue Marble” built bit by bit with your photos.
