I think Wednesday is my favorite day of the week, ’cause once it’s over, it’s almost Friday, kinda. It’s also a great day because tabloids remind me that no matter how bad my life can be, at least no one cares about the trouble I’ve been getting into—unlike Jennifer, Jessica, and (Michael) Jackson. And they’re not concerned with my ever expanding/decreasing waistline like Khloe. But I guess that’s why they get paid the big bucks, because by being famous, they’ve given up their rights to privacy and their right to not have me go through their trash. Sorry guys! Keep reading »
Aubree O’Day is the latest celebrity to get a crappy tattoo in a dumb place on her body — she posted these photos on her Twitter which show her getting “Je ne sais quoi” inked on her middle finger. That means “I know not what” in French. I know not what to say about this other than WHATevs. Keep reading »

One of Britain’s most celebrated music conductors, Sir Edward Downes, died last week at the age of 85, along with his wife Joan, 74. How? They drank “a lethal cocktail of barbiturates provided by an assisted-suicide clinic” in Zurich, Switzerland. Lady Joan Downes was in the final stages of terminal cancer, but Sir Downes was in relatively good health. According to friends and family, Downes simply did not want to live without his wife, whom he had been married to for over 50 years. They died lying down, holding hands, with their children around them.
This story absolutely crushes my heart. Assisted suicide is a very controversial issue, but this particular story is so sadly, well, romantic, I’ll be curious to see what the response is. What do you all think? [NY Times[ Keep reading »
When you think of environmental consciousness, your probably flashes to organic-food eating, composting, solar-energy-loving people. Not whore houses. But a Berlin brothel owner is hoping to make an impact by offering a $7 discount (off the $100 for a 45-minute session) for patrons that arrive on bicycles. Since 2002, Germany has given legit labor contracts to about 400,000 women prostitutes, but business isn’t going so well. Thomas Goetz, the owner of “Maison d’envie” (haha…House of Envy), says, “The recession has hit our industry hard, obviously we hope that the discount will attract more people. It’s good for business, it’s good for the environment and it’s good for the girls. We have around 3-5 new customers coming in daily to take advantage of the discount.” [Reuters] Keep reading »
He looks quite handsome, though who knows why he’s on the cover but we hope it sells better than that hateful Julia Allison issue. Keep reading »
Funny Or Die, who manages to get every celebrity you can think of to star in their spoofs, has reminded me of just how adorable and funny Alicia Silverstone is, with this spoof of indie road trip flicks. Says Kelly Draper from LA Weekly, “Someone dies and there’s a LOT of music. Much more music than story,” while Charlie Benson of the Village Voice asks, “Is this a CD or a movie?” Hilarious. Now can someone give Alicia a job already? [Funny Or Die] Keep reading »
Yikes! A 54-year-old Californian mother of three booked an appointment with a plastic surgeon to have some work done. But when she found out how many Benjamins she’d have to lay down, she did what every thrifty American would do. (NOT!) She went online, bought a $10 vial of liquid silicone, and injected it into her own lips and cheeks. She is — shocker! — not so pleased with her new face. Keep reading »
Barbara Walters is having a very educational week. Sexually, we mean. Last week Margaret Cho visited “The View” and gave Barbara a lesson on the G-spot. Then, over the weekend, Barbara saw “Bruno” and learned more than she cared to about anal and giving oral sex. I saw “Bruno” this weekend as well and was shocked to see a man in his, I swear, 90′s, sitting front row and center. I was concerned he would have a heart attack. Anyhoo, check out Babs’ disgust in the clip above. [via Jezebel] Keep reading »
Urban Outfitters is having a mega sale online right now and there’s tons of cool and cute stuff under $10. We know the economy is in the crapper right now, but occasionally a gal deserves a treat. For the more OCD among us, get crackin’ on your Christmas shopping a lil’ early. I’m sure tie dye leggings and breakfast floss will be the IN stocking stuffers of 2009. Ten under $10, after the jump… Keep reading »
