Balloon Boy Drama Was A Hoax


Well, as if it wasn’t obvious already, officials have finally confirmed what the entire universe already knew — the ballad of missing Balloon Boy, Falcon Heene, was a hoax. Richard Heene, with the help of his wife, concocted the whole saga in hopes of getting the family some publicity, so they could sell a reality show. This is what happens when a plan EPICALLY BACKFIRES. The Heenes will face charges, some of which may carry jail time. Keep reading »

David Archuleta’s Dad Likes Hookers, And Other Fun Info We’ve Learned From Divorce Papers!

No matter how old you are, it must suck to find out your parents are getting divorced. And it must suck even more for Radar Online to get a hold of your parents’ divorce papers, and reveal that part of the reason for said divorce is because your dad was arrested in a massage parlor in Utah, allegedly soliciting a prostitute. This is exactly what has just happened to “American Idol” season seven contestant David Archuleta. We feel terrible for him that this is now public knowledge. [Popeater]

It seems like we always get a little too much information when divorce papers get leaked. Here are a few of the dooziest. Keep reading »

Woman Exchanges Two Children For $175 And A Cockatoo. A Fair Trade?

Paul and Brandy Romero, a couple from Louisiana, got themselves in a bit of a pickle when they bought two children from Donna Greenwell in exchange for a cockatoo and $175. Though Donna wasn’t the children’s mother, the biological parents knew they were living with her and she claims she was just trying to find a suitable home for the unwanted kids. I guess Paul and Brandy fit the bill, since they were unable to have children but happened to be selling an exotic bird and somehow the subject of kids came up during the bird-buying transaction? Both parties were charged with two felony counts of sale of minors, which apparently only gets you a five-year prison sentence. The Romeros had their sentences suspended for testifying against Donna, who awaits her trial in November. I wish every conversation on Earth were recorded, so we could hear what really went down. Something like “Nice bird!” “Oh thanks, want some kids?” “Oh totally! That would be awesome—we’re barren.” “Super, I’ll give you two for 175 and the cockatoo.” “Word.” [AOL News] Keep reading »

Is This Ad For Jamieson’s Raspberry Ale Sexist?

Snow White has been made over into “Ho White,” smokin’ a fag after, apparently, a rockin’ roll in the hay with her favorite seven dwarves. The ad is for Australian brewery Jamieson’s raspberry ale which is being marketed as “anything but sweet.” The thing is, the company behind it, The Foundry, forgot to ask Disney’s permission to turn one of its fairy tale heroines in to a big ol’ gangbanging slut, and they’ve had to pull the ad. Too bad, because I think it’s more funny than offensive. [AdFreak] Keep reading »

Roofied Letter Writer Responds To Lucinda Rosenfeld’s Advice

Not to beat this story dead, but a commenter pointed out that the “Friend Or Foe” letter writer has responded to Lucinda Rosenfeld’s advice — on Double X! Here’s a portion of what she wrote and we would like to say, “YOU GO GIRL.”

“For the record, I really was roofied, ma’am. The idea that I must provide you with a tox screen to prove it is galling … But in the end, I don’t need your advice after all—I figured it out all by myself. Ten years of friendship is a long time, but I was clinging to an institution and a bond that these women abandoned years ago. Perhaps we continued to see each other socially because it was easier than forging new bonds. I’m not sure. For now, these women might be in my social circle due to our vast network of mutual friends, but they are certainly not the close confidantes I once thought I had. P.S. The day I rely more on a boyfriend than on a best girlfriend is the day I lose hope for womankind.”

Quick Pic: Dreams Do Come True

Last night I came face to face with my number-one celebrity crush, Ryan Gosling. His band, Dead Man’s Bones (which is actually awesome and not like other “actor bands” that suck), performed in New York and I went and acted like a fool. Seriously, I will never mock women acting like idiots at concerts again, because last night I was one of them. In fact, I believe I moaned out loud at one point. I took a bunch of crappy photos with my iPhone, including this one, which was shot just before Ryan and I went into the bathroom and made a baby together. Just kidding. I wish. More crappy photos after the jump and ZOMG IT WAS THE BEST NIGHT OF MY LIFE!!! (P.S. This post goes out to Simcha, who was supposed to go too, but she’s been stuck in bed with a case of meningitis. We miss you sister!) Keep reading »
