Last week, we told you about the mysterious disappearance of Amina Abdallah, 35, a lesbian woman in Syria who penned the blog Gay Girl in Damascus. As Jessica initially wrote in that post, according to a post written by her cousin, on June 6, three men pulled up in a car and grabbed Abdallah. In a followup post, her cousin simply said she is “missing.” Shortly after word of her disappearance spread on the internet, along with various photos of Abdallah, a woman named Jelena Lecic, from the UK, came forward and said that the photos were actually of her. (The photo at left is Lecic and is one of the photos used to represent Abdallah on the internet.) This caused many to question not only the legitimacy of Abdallah’s disappearance, but also her existence as well.
And, as it turns out, those hunches were right. There is no Amina Abdallah. Keep reading »
As one-third of a top-selling girl group and Beyonce’s former shadow, Kelly Rowland has had a difficult time coming into her own, while remaining in the public eye.

There is so much to love about about this French TV interview with “Bridesmaids”‘ stars Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph. For starters, “Bridesmaids” is called a raunchy comedy, which apparently translates to “les comedies pee-pee, ca-ca coo” or something in French. And then somehow the interview devolves into a discussion about possible film plots in which farting is the main premise, because the interviewer, apparently, would watch an entire film about passing wind. So much for the French being highbrow. Seriously, this interview is so strange and hilarious, I am going to stop trying to explain it and just encourage you to watch and laugh. Keep reading »
I was nauseous as I watched Bentley Williams play out his sociopathic master plan on Ashley Hebert on the latest episode of “The Bachelorette.” I still can’t understand how — even if he was behaving like a pathetic excuse for a human being — it benefited him in any way to reveal his cruel intentions on national television. Why? Just why? Especially considering that Bentley is allegedly a strict Mormon, which means he doesn’t drink alcohol or have pre-marital sex. But it’s okay for him to intentionally deceive people? It just doesn’t add up. I’m sure the Mormon Church would not approve.
