I blew my wad on a rental car so I could drive to Pennsylvania with Lucca for the Thanksgiving holiday, which means I am banned — BANNED — from doing any shopping on this Cyber Monday, no matter how good the deals may be. But that doesn’t mean I cannot live vicariously through the rest of you. Here are 15 items I would purchase if I were shopping today, which I am not, I swear, I swear, I swear.

Babies are already pretty flexible (it’s not easy getting a foot in your mouth, just try it), but Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady’s daughter Vivian is hoping to stay that way. Gisele posted this photo to Instagram, featuring she and her daughter both practicing pigeon pose. Vivian’s hip flexors need some work, but her arm extension is lovely! Namaste, cutie.
In fairness, practically every word of Joe Jonas’s first-person piece in New York magazine is a revelation to me, as I have basically gone out of my way not to know anything about the Jonas Brothers other than Nick is the hottest one. But I have had some assumptions about the JoBros in general based on what little has managed to slip through, and this incredibly juicy profile of the middle Jonas squashed almost all of them. Perhaps there is nothing new here for fans, but I’m pretty sure most of y’all don’t walk among us anyway. Keep reading »
Elwood, the eight-year-old Chihuahua/Chinese crested mix who won the title of World’s Ugliest Dog in 2007, passed away this weekend. According to his owner, Karen Quigley, the perpetually unimpressed-looking pooch died unexpectedly on Thanksgiving Day. Though he has been experiencing some health problems, he was seemingly doing well. Elwood was lucky to have Quigley as his owner; she adopted him at nine-months-old, saving him from being euthanized because the breeder though he was “too ugly” to sell. Sob! After winning the coveted title of World’s Ugliest Dog, Elwood went on to become the focus of a children’s book teaching acceptance and appeared at over 200 events raising money for animal rescue groups and nonprofit organizations. ”He made people smile, he made them laugh and feel good. It was wonderful,” Quigley said. “He will truly be missed.” RIP Elwood! [NBC New York]
This weekend’s untimely death of actor Paul Walker at the age of 40 is such a tragedy and I certainly wish his family (especially his 15-year-old daughter, Meadow), friends and colleagues my sincere condolences. But as I was reading various news articles about Walker and the car crash that killed him, something stuck out to me — Walker is also survived by his girlfriend (and rumored fiancee) of seven years, Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell, age 23. Here, lemme do the math for you. Walker and Pilchard-Gosnell began dating when he was 33 and she was only 16. Say what? Keep reading »
Each year, the Kardashians release to the world their family Christmas card. Last year’s card, as you might remember, featured Kim’s poor dead kitten Mercy in a box. This year’s Christmas card, shot by famed photographer David LaChapelle, features poor beleaguered father figure Bruce Jenner — who recently split from matriarch Kris Jenner — in a tube. Meanwhile, the rest of the family dicks — Rob Kardashian, Scott Disick, Lamar Odom and Kanye West — are missing. (Little Mason and Penelope, Kourtney’s kids, are there, but North West is not.) And the Kardashian ladies? Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kris, Kylie and Kendall all look interchangeable until you zoom in. WHO ZOOMS IN ON A CHRISTMAS CARD? Anyway, I don’t know about you, but I think the image of Kim standing on top of a pile of money really captures the holiday spirit. Closeups after the jump. [via Jezebel] Keep reading »
There has long been speculation — perhaps hopeful speculation – that British Olympic diver Tom Daley, 19, is gay. This weekend, the bronze metal winner, who’s very popular with the hormonal, Bieber-loving set in his home country, decided to take control of the rumors and posted this candid confessional to YouTube, in which he says for the first time that he’s in a relationship with a man.

Hey guys, great news. According to a tweet posted to the GOP’s official Twitter account — acknowledging the 58th anniversary of Rosa Parks’ refusal to move to the back of the bus in Birmingham, Alabama — racism has ended. I’m not sure when it happened, but it must have been recently. I was in Pennsylvania this weekend, though, and phone and internet service was pretty spotty up there, so I wouldn’t be surprised if racism ended over the holiday weekend, possibly even during Thanksgiving dinner. Talk about something to be thankful for!
But seriously. Racism has ended? O RLY? The ridiculousness of such a statement prompted Twitter user @FeministaJones – follow her! — to start the hashtag #RacismEndedWhen as a “satirical, subversive response to the GOP suggesting Rosa Park ended it.” You can check out a Storify of just some of the tweets after the jump. Meanwhile, the GOP backtracked and tweeted an update: “Previous tweet should have read ‘Today we remember Rosa Parks’ bold stand and her role in fighting to end racism.’” That’s better.

Early last week, LOVE magazine Instagrammed (and later deleted) a photo of Miley Cyrus flashing her nude-colored panties at the camera, a crude dick drawn on the crotch. But would Miley’s Sharpie dick actually make the cover of the magazine’s holiday issue? Remains to be seen, but the mag released this quickie trailer for the issue and sure enough, there goes Miley flashin’ that D at the camera yet again. My only question: did the undies come like that or did Miley customize them herself? [via Dlisted]
