This past weekend, the very pregnant Fergie Duhamel had her “gay-by” shower at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills. And, if you’re like us, you probably have no idea what that means. Us Weekly reported that it was thrown by her “gay BFFs.” Not sure why they can’t just be “BFFs” who also happen to be gay. But besides that, here’s what we’re guessing makes a “gay-by” shower, in case you’re thinking of throwing one, too:

Remember the good ol’ days of “Dexter”? When the 6′ 4″ Trinity Killer performed his closeted kill rituals and physically abused his family behind closed doors? Or the Ice Truck Killer, who painted his victim’s fingernails different colors as a special message to Dexter? Remember when Dexter was, you know, busy tracking and killing these deranged serial killers, while struggling not to get caught by his family and coworkers?
Unfortunately, those days of wholesome fun are over. “Dexter” is now a shell of the show it used to be, with each season becoming less and less compelling. Here are three things that are really rubbing me the wrong way in “Dexter”‘s final season…
What: Butterfly clips
When we wore it: Late ’90s
Why we hate them: Because we never had enough, obviously.
Oh, dress codes. Women have been banned from wearing sleeveless dresses at a school in Madhya Pradesh, India, because administrators say doing so isn’t dressing in a “decent manner.” In order to enforce the new rule, the college director stands outside the premises every morning to make sure the students are wearing “decent” attire.
Why are they suddenly enforcing this rule? That’s not exactly clear; perhaps the recent spate of high-profile rapes and gang rapes in India has lead to increased policing of the way women dress in the name of “protecting” them. Anyway, prior to the official enforcement, female students who wore sleeveless dresses had to write essays on Indian culture as punishment — potentially the catalyst for the college-wide ban.

Shailene Woodley thinks her new movie, “The Spectacular Now,” is really, really … real. Woodley told the ladies of “The View” that her favorite scene to film in the new coming-of-age teen dramedy, which arrives in theaters on August 2, is when her character, Aimee Finecky, loses her virginity to alcoholic bad boy Sutter Keely (played by Miles Teller). “It’s so real,” she said.
What’s not to love about Cate Blanchett? The Australian star of “Blue Jasmine” is awesomely gorgeous, and she’s totally killed it in every role she’s played, including Katherine Hepburn and Bob Dylan. She’s classy as hell, really chill (I’d assume), and wears the coolest clothes ever — which caused me massive stress in trying to narrow this list down to just ten looks. No wonder every designer is clamoring to dress her.
Okay we get it! Taylor Swift is like, the nicest person ever. After enjoying an $800 meal with her tour crew (which she obviously paid for) in Philly, the pop songstress left a hefty $500 tip. Taylor, don’t you know that’s like, 60 percent? But I guess if you have boatloads of money it doesn’t really matter. The restaurant manager, Ron Trombino, sounded a little nervy when talking about the whole thing‚ like Swifty’s PR team would take out a hit on him if he didn’t fill the “nice” adjective quota when describing the experience:
“Taylor was very, very nice.”
“It was a very nice experience, very easy.”
An Open Letter To The New Movie “Adore” (Which Is Eerily Similar To That Andy Samberg & Justin Timberlake Song “Mother Lover”)
Dear the movie “Adore,” starring Naomi Watts and Robin Wright,
Let me start by saying that I’m not here as another social media troll who just wants to make fun of your semi-absurd plot. That would just be too easy. I know that you didn’t just turn the satirical “Mother Lover” into a pouty, melodramatic screenplay. After all, I just Googled that your director is French and your writer is British, so they could have been clueless to its existence. However, because we are friends here, I feel it’s only fair to warn you that you’re going to eat a lot of shit for this. I mean, a lot.
You see, if you’ve been on planet Earth lately, you know that the “Saturday Night Live” music video starring Andy Samberg and Justin Timberlake went viral a few years back. In it, they don bad ’80s garb and monstrous chin straps while cheering on each other on their crooning quest for mother loving. Keep reading »
Before your dude friends drag you from your couch to see “Lovelace,” the new flick about the star of the infamous porn film “Deep Throat,” you might want to share this phrase with them: “no full-frontal nudity.” At least not from Amanda Seyfried, the woman playing famed porn star Linda Lovelace. The reason for her modesty? “I want to save something for my husband!” Seyfried also described how she used a popsicle to simulate her oral sex scenes with Peter Sarsgaard, who she dubbed as the “easiest person to do anything with.” Those scenes “didn’t feel that sexual or invasive” while shooting, she explained, and instead said that the hardest ones were the ones involving domestic abuse between the two. I’m actually pleased to hear an actress confirm that violence, not sex, causes more distress.
