“Intervention”: Nicole Is NOT Walking On Sunshine

Some people are addicted to heroin. Others have a constant craving for sex. My vice? A&E’s “Intervention.” I watched the episode about Allison, who huffed computer duster, like, 10 times (“It’s like I’m walking on sunshine!” she crowed while sucking on the stuff). But last night’s episode redefined “out of your mind.” Nicole has an eating disorder, but she’s not your garden variety bulimic or anorexic. She “eats” only by feeding tube, which pumps liquid food into her stomach. She hasn’t swallowed in 14 years. Keep reading »

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Is Short Hair Really A Boner Killer?

I just read the world’s most obnoxious article in The New York Daily News. According to the reporter and his panel of experts/douchebags, short hair on a woman is a total turn-off for men. Unfortunately, this is hardly the first time I’ve heard this and I can’t help but wonder if this “rumor” is the reason why you don’t see many 20- and 30-something women with cropped ‘dos — after all, Halle Berry and Natalie Portman can pull off the look, but they could pull off just about anything and men would drown in a puddle of drool. So, I decided to go to the experts on such matters — the guys on our IM. Of course, I hardly think women should allow THE MAN to dictate what she does with her hair (or body, or, you know anything), but my curiosity compelled me to ask. Check out their responses, after the jump… Keep reading »

Star Couplings: Jessica Simpson & Tony Romo Hoping To Get Pregs

  • Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo are supposedly actively trying to have a baby because there is no effing way Jess is letting Ashlee steal her thunder. [Perez Hilton]
  • Pete Wentz is so edgy. He tasted Momma Ashlee’s breast milk! Punk rock! [DListed]
  • John Mayer is THE WORST. He apparently hates Jennifer Aniston’s dogs. You know what I hate? Stupid fat lipped singers who hate dogs. [DListed]

    Crave: Studded Wrap Watch

    Our dream timepiece happens to be the Hermes double-wrapped Cape Cod watch. Unfortunately, it’s only a dream because it costs upwards of $2,000. However, this La Mer Studded Wrap Watch is a million times cheaper, (almost) as cute, and a little more punk rock, thanks to strategically placed studs. When you’re as rich as Grace Kelly you can buy the Cape Cod — this watch is for your cool, bad ass, poor, 20-something days. [$95, UrbanOutfitters.com] Keep reading »

    RIP: Robert Pattinson’s Hair

    As I noted yesterday, “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson cut his hair. While it’s obvious that he’ll have to grow it back for the sequel “New Moon” — after all, Edward Cullen’s hair doesn’t CHANGE — I’m still mourning the loss of his luscious, dirty locks. Above, his hair in its many disheveled forms. Can you guess the chronological order of these photos, from the oldest to the most recent? Answers, after the jump, but no cheating! Keep reading »

    The Breakup Diaries: My $527 Makeout

    To make a long story short, my breakup is officially official. It became sort of official a few months ago when I decided to call it a breakup rather than a “break” or a “separation,” but it didn’t become officially official until my ex told me, a week ago, that he was no longer in love with me. Until that point, I was definitely holding out hope for a potential reconciliation — after all, the “break” was supposed to be time for him to explore and deal with his issues — but when someone tells you that they don’t love you anymore, well, whether you believe them or not, and whether you think they need serious help, you kind of just need to accept it and move on. So I did. And it cost me $527. But it was worth it. Keep reading »

    Can We Please Stop Fawning Over The Duggars?

    The Duggar family welcomed their 18th child (with a J name!) last week, a girl named Jordyn-Grace. Since then, they’ve been making the talk show rounds and the amount of fawning and praising and congratulating going on is enough to make me want to throw up. Yes, babies are cute. You will not find a person who loves babies more than me. But one woman, popping out 18 children, when there are so many babies and children that need to be adopted, is DISGUSTING. Michelle Duggar has every right to do what she wants with her body — Roe V. Wade goes both ways — but I also have the right to think it’s gross. As a friend of mine just said, “It’s a vagina, not a clown car!” It’s also selfish. By all means, if you can afford to have 18 children and provide a good life for them, blah, blah, blah, God’s will, GREAT — but couldn’t a fraction of those 18 be the children in orphanages also brought into this world thanks to God’s will?

    Facebook Makes A Fuss About Breastfeeding

    Along with adults in Santa hats and Scientology, fury over women breastfeeding in public and in photos is something I just don’t understand. The latest breast feeding scandal comes courtesy of Facebook, which removed photos of mothers nursing their babies from their personal pages. More than 58,000 people have joined a Facebook group called “Hey, Facebook, breastfeeding is not obscene!” to protest the censorship of the photos. “Whether there’s a nipple exposed or not, female breasts, specifically in the context of breast-feeding, should not be considered obscene,” says Stephanie Muir, one of the group’s administrators. I completely agree — feeding and nourishing a child through breastfeeding is one of the most natural things on earth and just because the body part she uses to do so has been sexualized in other ways by society, doesn’t mean the act of nursing is sexual or obscene. Hey Facebook, why don’t you spend a little more time dealing with all the pro-rape “flair” on your site instead? [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
