Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Profile for Amelia McDonell-Parry
French bulldogs are even cuter upside down.
The model in these photos is actually 23, but her youthful gaze (what so many women aspire for, apparently!) has gotten another American Apparel ad banned by the UK Advertising Standards Authority. That ad (see it here) originally appeared in Vice magazine and caught the watchdog group’s eye because, apparently, it “sexualise[s] a model who appeared to be a child under the age of 16.” The fact that she’s not doesn’t matter, I guess. I wonder if they still went out and bought some leggings though… [Marketing Week, Gawker] Keep reading »
Last night I finally got around to watching “Youth Knows No Pain,” a new HBO documentary which aired on Monday night. The film is directed by Mitch McCabe, the daughter of a plastic surgeon, who has been obsessed with anti-aging treatments and products since she was little. Through interviews with various cosmetic surgery and beauty addicts, she explores our country’s obsession with never growing old. She puts her own weaknesses bravely on display and gets some seriously juicy and fascinating perspectives out of her incredible cast of “characters.” These include “lifecasters” Julia Allison and Mary Rambin, who are fond of fillers and Botox and come off as bratty and vapid; Allure Editor-In-Chief Linda Wells, who admits that her magazine pushes beauty products that don’t necessarily work but still make people “feel good”; Norman Deesing, who has spent more than 50K trying to look like Jack Nicholson; Erica Rose, a former contestant on “The Bachelor,” who is also the daughter of a plastic surgeon; and Sherry McCabe, featured in the clip above, who used to be obese. After she got gastric bypass and dropped a ton of pounds, Sherry got her whole face, tummy, and boobs done in an effort to look young and hot. She is pure sad amazingness. Check out the clip above and watch the full documentary, which is both eye-opening and entertaining, on HBO. [HBO: Youth Knows No Pain] Keep reading »
If you’re Catholic and you know it, pray before sex! Roman Catholic couples are being encouraged by
the Church [UPDATE] prominent church group the Catholic Truth Society to say a prayer before sex in order to “purify their intentions.” Cause, you know, sex shouldn’t be about fun. The Prayer Before Making Love goes, ahem:
Place within us love that truly gives, tenderness that truly unites, self-offering that tells the truth and does not deceive, forgiveness that truly receives, loving physical union that welcomes. Open our hearts to you, to each other and to the goodness of your will. Cover our poverty in the richness of your mercy and forgiveness. Clothe us in true dignity and take to yourself our shared aspirations, for your glory, for ever and ever.
And he also spills the beans. In the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair, Levi Johnston says that there wasn’t much parenting in the Palin household, that Sarah wanted to keep Bristol’s pregnancy a secret and then adopt the child when it was born, and that she quit her job as governor so she could make triple the money writing a book. Do we believe him? Maybe. Regardless, it will make for a very entertaining read! [Vanity Fair] Keep reading »
Who’d've thunk? For all Chelsea Handler’s crowing about sleeping with 50 Cent, his ex-girlfriend is none too impressed with his bedroom skills. Shaniqua Tompkins blabbed to the blog Mommys Dirty Little Secret that Fiddy was just “okay” in bed. When asked if she’d sleep with him again, Tompkins said, “No, he’s hard enough to get rid of, that would just make it worse.”
In the same interview, Floyd Mayweather, Jr.’s ex/baby mama Josie Harris also blabbed about her famous bedmate. Harris flat-out trashed Mayweather as “boring in bed,” and said she would only sleep with him “if he had a drink first. Sober Floyd is boring and I like to have fun in bed!” Buuuurn. [Vibe Vixen]
Thanks for the warning, ladies! We’re filing away this important information, in case we’re ever so desperate we need Chelsea Handler’s sloppy seconds or a noted domestic abuser. But these aren’t the only celebrity sex resumes you can find online: we’ve got all the deets on who’s a baller and who’s a blunderer in bed. Oh, Brody Jenner, why are we not the least bit surprised about you?
Who’s that towhead? Why, it’s Jessica Alba! She’s lightened her locks for her role in “Valentine’s Day,” which she’s currently shooting with the Kutch. [Los Angeles, 9/1/09] Keep reading »
Something tells me that episode 10 of “MERRIme.com” is going to hit a little close to home for our Simcha. While on an “elegant” date with Gary, Merri learns that she shares more in common with Barbra Streisand than she thought. Oh girrrrrl, I can’t wait to see what happens next… [MERRIme.com] Keep reading »
