According to TMZ, employees at various home retailers are reporting that shower rod sales have shot up ever since “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” star Mimi Faust’s Vivid sex tape trailer was released online — and supplies are close to selling out. In the trailer for “Mimi & Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta” (which is after the jump and NSFW), Mimi and boyfriend Nikko Smith (who placed ninth on the fourth season of “American Idol” and is the son of legendary baseball player Ozzie Smith) are seen having, amongst other activities, rather aerobic shower sex, using the curtain rod for support.
I’m not sure what’s so special about “Mimi’s shower rod,” if anything, but the tape has apparently sent hordes of people flocking to Home Depot and Lowe’s to purchase their own. While I’m not sure I buy this whole shower rod shortage crisis (!!!), a cursory Twitter search for “Mimi shower rod” turns up enough results that I can’t write off completely. Hell, if “Mimi & Nikko” inspires people to get a little creative and adventurous in their next sex romp, it will have done more for society than Vivid’s last reality TV star sex tape. Sorry, Farrah.

Leave it to Chloe Grace Moretz to combine two of my favorite current trends – a fitted sweatshirt and a full midi skirt – into one fabulous outfit. Mixing a sporty top with a girly bottom keeps the look from being too casual or too precious, and has that much ballyhooed “effortless” vibe. Naturally, I went buck wild pairing both graphic and simple sweatshirts with a variety of retro-shaped midi skirts in this first edition of Fashion Math! Click on for some seriously cool combos…
Alright, so it’s probably not the best outfit for klutzes, but how chic is this white-on-white-on-white look on model Karolina Kurkova? I am a huge fan of the monochromatic thing, for starters, but I love the subtle accent her red lips, black shades, silver bag and sweeeeeeeeeeeeet two-toned oxfords add. Yes, white stains easily, but you can also bleach that shit. I betcha Karolina has a bleach pen in her purse, and if she doesn’t, she should. Get the look after the jump! Keep reading »
Banksy’s latest work sure hits close to home, doesn’t it? The painting was posted to the artist’s website on Monday, and then the original was finally found by a number of fans in Bristol, England, where he allegedly grew up. The British press has already given the painting the name “Mobile Lovers,” but I think we should call it “Jared Leto & Friend,” inspired by the infamous photo of Jared Leto texting while making out with Scarlett Johansson (see it after the jump). Clearly that was Banksy’s inspiration, right? Obviously. [Washington Post] Keep reading »
According to court documents obtained by The Wrap, Bryan Singer, director of the hit “X-Men” franchise, is accused of drugging, raping and using his power to manipulate a then-17-year-old male, in a lawsuit filed in federal court in Hawaii this week. According to the lawsuit, plaintiff Michael Egan — who was named in a press release sent out by his lawyers — says Singer forcibly sodomized him, among other things, when he was 17. The lawsuit alleges:
Defendant, BRYAN JAY SINGER, manipulated his power, wealth, and position in the entertainment industry to sexually abuse and exploit the underage Plaintiff through the use of drugs, alcohol, threats, and inducements which resulted in Plaintiff suffering catastrophic psychological and emotional injuries. Defendant Singer did so as part of a group of adult males similarly positioned in the entertainment industry that maintained and exploited boys in a sordid sex ring. A Hollywood mogul must not use his position to sexually exploit underage actors.

I didn’t realize until this second how much I’ve missed “Orange Is The New Black,” but the new season two trailer has me seriously so pumped. Piper is in solitary! Crazy Eyes has a new bunkmate name Vee, who seems to have preexisting beef with Big Red! Tastee is still amazing! Oh look, there’s Alex, trying to seduce someone with her sexy spectacled eyes! Sophia lookin’ fierce! Ack, let’s go, June 6, let’s go!
I don’t know how it’s possible that we’ve never done a pizza recipe roundup for Frisky Eats, given that we all consider pizza a food group around these parts. Maybe it’s so obvious that we forgot? Well, time to repair that oversight. Here are 14 pizza recipes you can easily make at home — in the oven or on a grill — using homemade dough or store bought. Get it in your mouth, pizza lovers!
Sky Ferreira’s new video for her song “I Blame Myself” is a fun one to watch, but it’s even more fun to shop. Shot in Compton, this ode to “early ’90s gangster rap videos” features the pop singer as the neighborhood’s queen bee, driving around with her crew in a hydraulic car. But she’s still got plenty of time for a dance breakdown or two. What makes this video extra special, however, is that absolutely everything Sky wears is available for purchase through SSENSE. Hmm, I’m feeling that red blouse. BRB… [SSENCE via Idolator]
Somehow it managed to escape my notice that Heidi Klum is now dating 27-year-old Vito Schnabel, son of artist and filmmaker Julian Schnabel and a bit of a Hollywood playboy (he’s dated Demi Moore, Liv Tyler and Elle Macpherson). I probably would have continued to be ignorant to this bit of celebrity bed-swapping gossip if these photos of the couple on the beach in Mexico hadn’t surfaced today and caught my attention because Klum, as you can see, in topless. I love a topless beach. Tan lines are fine and all, but bronzed boobs are the best. Click through for more pics of Heidi’s (NSFW) nips if you’re into that sort of thing.
I don’t eat a ton of fast food, but I do pay close attention to the fast food industry’s attempts to one-up each other with crazier, weirder and, if you ask me, more disgusting food innovations and hybrids. Take, for example, Domino’s new pizza with a breaded chicken crust. Excuse me, “speciality chicken” crust, whatever that means. (I’m guessing genetically engineered chickens with no heads and 17 breasts, but I could be wrong.) Initially I was picturing a pizza pie with crust made out of, I dunno, minced chicken cooked and shaped into a circle — GAG — but it turns out that this chicken pizza more closely resembles that pull apart garlic bread. Each “pizza” is comprised of 12 chicken bites that, uh, are sort of stuck together in an oblong shape, and topped with various pizza toppings. When you really think about it, this is not altogether different from, say, chicken parmesan … except Domino’s is going a little nuttier with their “flavors.” They’re launching with four varieties: Crispy Bacon & Tomato, Spicy Jalapeno-Pineapple, Classic Hot Buffalo, and Sweet BBQ Bacon. I dunno, sounds like overkill to me. This is one fast food innovation I’ll be saying NO to. [Eater]
And lo and behold, here are 13 others! Hot dog pizza? Pasta bread bowls? God help us…
