Dear Ryan Gosling,

I just wanted to take a moment to say that I think it’s really noble of you to turn down People‘s “Sexiest Man Alive” title and let Bradley Cooper have the so-called “honor.” I mean, I can only assume that’s what happened because after a year in which you starred in three big movies (“Crazy Stupid Love,” “Drive,” and “Ides of March”), stopped a street fight over a painting, and inspired numerous internet memes, it just wouldn’t make sense to bestow the title on anyone else. Sure, People will probably deny what really went down, but I know the truth. Keep reading »

ZOMG I LOVE HER SO MUCH. Tami Taylor, ugh, I mean Connie Britton, the actress who played Tami Taylor, best mom/wife in the history of ever on “Friday Night Lights,” has announced that she adopted a baby boy from Ethiopia! “It was such a wonderful moment of completion,” Britton said of holding baby Yoby in her arms for the first time after a three-year adoption process. “I thought I was going to collapse into a puddle of tears. I was just grinning from ear to ear.”

I find this so inspiring. I want to be a mother so much someday, and women like Connie Britton are a reminder that doing so without a partner is possible. Congrats! [ONTD]

Hot Links: PETA’s Anti-Thanksgiving Turkey Ad Is Not Very Convincing

  • I don’t mean to be heartless, but PETA’s Thanksgiving-focused ad is completely ineffective, at least to a person terrified of medium-to-large sized fowl. See, dogs are wonderful and turkeys are disgusting, ugly, mean creatures and even though I much prefer Thanksgiving side dishes, I am very thankful the dead bird in the center of the table isn’t alive and charging at me. END RANT. COMMENCE PETA HATE MAIL. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Mother Speaks
The mom of Victim 1 speaks for the first time. Read More »
  • Earlier today, I posted the video from last night’s interview between NBC’s Bob Costas and accused child rapist Jerry Sandusky. What I didn’t point out then was that Sandusky’s lawyer, Joe Amendola, was also interviewed and said that not only does he believe his client is innocent, but that he would happily leave his own kids in his care. He also said that he believes they have figured out the identity of Victim 2 — i.e. the young boy graduate assistant coach Mike McCleary allegedly saw being anally raped by Sandusky in the Penn State locker room showers in 2002 — and implied that they would be able to produce witnesses who would contradict that the attack ever happened. He also said he believes that a number of the victims listed in the grand jury report will come forward and say that the attacks described against them never occurred. Wish in one hand, buddy… [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
