Essentially putting a “No Fatties” sign on the Admissions office, Lincoln University in Pennsylvania has taken a rather radical step in addressing obesity. They’re requiring that every student with a body mass index of 30 or higher, which is in the obese range, take a fitness class three times a week. Those who fail to show up won’t graduate. It’s easy to say it’s for their own good, but does a university have the right to withhold a diploma for someone’s lifestyle choices? The administration says, “Obesity is going to rob you of your quality and quantity of life. We believe that this is unconscionable.” But what about students who’re heavy drinkers, bulimics, cocaine users, smokers, or fans of unprotected sex? Aren’t those people risking their quality of life? Maybe they shouldn’t graduate unless they take a class? Keep reading »
When I saw the trailer for the movie “Babies” — a documentary about four babies living in different parts of the world — before a screening of “Where The Wild Things Are,” my uterus literally started to cry from the overload of cuteness. But then I realized I had just gotten my period and I should probs make a run for the loo and put in a tampon. [BuzzFeed

Oh, hello there. We were feeling a little on the pervy side today, because, you know, that’s how we roll, and of course, there’s the new David Beckham H&M ads where he’s clad only in underwear. What a fine piece of man human he is. This pic is sure to become a man bulge classic. We put two and two together and dang it! If men can stare at our breasts when we walk down the street, then we can Google “famous man bulge” and post the results here. Enjoy!
I don’t know what kind of sick joke this is, but it’s a damn shame I have spent 30 years on this earth having no knowledge of the wonderful world of indoor cycling

“They are attracted by the message I bring, I’m not about supermodel beauty, but more about natural beauty. The girls with black hair and pale skin, who don’t look fantastic in a bikini, can see in me someone that supports them in their quest for a more alternative sensuality … You can play dressing up with elegance or make a striptease for your significant other. The essence of burlesque is about dressing up properly, enjoying glamour, and taking more time for yourself.”

And we are. Obsessed, I mean. The bitch behind fashion PR company People’s Revolution — and Whitney’s fake-boss on “The City” — was in the news today. Twice! First Kelly
appeared on a Fox News morning show and dropped the F-bomb when discussing that rich, lazy snatch, Olivia Palermo. You can watch the vid here
, but this is the exact quote.
“I like Olivia as a person, I really do. I’ve known her for a really long time and I know her family. I think that her work ethic is way too elevated and way too lofty … I mean that when you’re in your ’20s and you are in a prestigious place like Elle magazine, and someone like Erin is trying to help you, you better leave your f**king attitude at the door, right?”
I wonder how many gray hairs Rupert Murdoch sprouted over that one?
This is just one example of how awesomely unscripted Kelly is, which is why we’re super psyched about her upcoming reality show, “Kell On Earth.” That’s where the second bit of news comes in — Bravo has finally announced that the show will make it’s debut on Feb. 1, 2010. Mark your calendars! Check out an interview with Kelly, above, discussing the show. [BravoTV] Keep reading »
Jessica Biel may have finally gotten ladies man Justin Timberlake to commit, but she’s no dummy — along with the rock on her finger, Jessica is apparently locking Justin into a prenup that he’d be stupid to break. According to Radar, Jessica will get at least $500K if Justin ever cheats on her — an insurance policy that is no doubt related to rumors that he’s strayed a few times throughout their relationship. Apparently, Jessica isn’t 100 percent trusting of J.Tim just yet, so she wants a few cheat-free years of wedded bliss before she’ll pop out any babies — especially since “Jessica figures if she gets fat during pregnancy, he’ll cheat again.” How … romantic. Call me crazy, but $500K seems a little low, no? I mean, Justin is a huge star with a LOT of money in the bank. I would have gone for $1 million per! [Radar]
In the grand scheme of celeb prenups, Jessica’s cheating clause is pretty tame. Celebrities are masters of manipulating prenuptial agreements to cater to their lifestyles. Here are a few of the weirdest stipulations.
Well this is an awfully timely blind item. Maybe it’s written in such a way to throw us off, but it seems way obvious, no? Via BlindGossip.com:
As if this famous athlete didn’t have enough dang problems right now, you can add a couple more to the list. His wife knew that he had relied on a certain substance in the past to relieve his extreme bouts with performance anxiety. However she did not know until a couple of days ago that he has been experimenting with other substances that could get flagged during testing. The second problem he has is his penchant for women who are paid handsomely to be discreet about their extra-curricular activities with him. Word is that he likes to be punished for his bad behavior. He was subjected to harsh discipline from an early age, and he tells the women that he needs them to continue that tradition in order for him to be perfect. But don’t expect either of these habits to come to the forefront in the coming months. Everyone is getting paid off to lie or to keep their trap shut.
