“Glee”‘s Naya Rivera is in hot water over some comments she made on “The View” this week, about how showering more than once a day is a “white people thing.” Rivera and the hosts were discussing a recent study that says it’s actually better for your skin if you shower only once or twice every three days. After “View” co-host Nicole Wallace shared that she actually showers three times a day, Rivera remarked, “I think that white people shower a lot more than ethnics.” Then she defended her position, saying, “My mom is half black, half Puerto Rican. She showers every day so I can say this. But I’m now married to a white man. And he showers a lot, like two, three times a day.” Rivera, on the other hand, says her showering routine is “right on the mark” with the study’s recommendation. Still, her position that showering excessively is a “white people thing” and that people of color generally shower less angered a whole lot of people on Twitter, which I can understand, as it’s usually not a great idea to make such generalizations about whole swaths of people, especially with a sensitive issue like hygiene. Besides, while I can’t speak for “ethnics,” I can refute Rivera’s belief that white people are obsessed with showering based on one thing and one thing alone.
I am a white person. And I do not shower everyday. Keep reading »
Good morning and happy hump day! Here is a post that will likely get tons of traffic because of the first four words of that headline! If you think I’m posting this photo of Miley Cyrus in V for any other reason, I appreciate getting more credit than is due! Although I would be curious what brand of bubble bath Miley uses, as it looks quite frothy and as a rock star bather, I might like to try it. (If you want to see Miley’s nips for the millionth time, they’re uncensored after the jump.) [Defamer] Keep reading »
Reminder: Every Monday, I livetweet a new, exhaustingly long episode of “The Bachelor” on my personal Twitter (@xoamelia), giving a detailed, hilarious, wine-and-weed-influenced critique of “Prince Farming” (oh go fuck yourself with that nickname, Chris Harrison) and his search for a woman willing to move to
a post-apocalyptic hell tundra Iowa. And then every Tuesday, I recap the episode with some form of an infographic, because three hours actually forming sentences to describe my feelings about this shitshow is enough for all of us.
On last night’s episode, the crazies came out to play, but no one brought it harder than Brooklyn (represent!) hairstylist Ashley S. Best of all, despite — or because of — her television worthy antics, she scored a rose!
Ever since I stopped drinking as much cheap champagne and my sugar craving skyrocketed, I have become a bit of an ice cream junkie (okay, I also maybe get the munchies). I am pretty serious about stocking up on my fave flavors and Ben & Jerry’s makes a bunch of them — Mint Chocolate Cookie, Late Night Snack, What A Cluster, I could go on — so when the brand launched their CORE flavors last year, I was stoked. I am always down for more BITS OF STUFF in my ice cream and the CORE flavors pack all the bits of stuff into the center so you can dig out as much stuff as you want in each bite. BRILLIANT, really. However, I was disappointed that B&J failed to offer a CORE variety for what seemed like the most obvious flavor — COOKIE DOUGH. Until now. Keep reading »
