#8 — Our Pick: Sarah Haskins AskMen’s Pick: Rob Kay
We had to make a bit of a leap with this pick, as Rob Kay is the dude who created the video game Rock Band and I could not, for the life of me, think of any female video game influencers because, duh, we, in general, don’t play video games. But we do like VIDEOS! One of our favorite web video stars is Sarah Haskins, who has her own show, “Target Women”, on Current. Every few weeks she tackles a new topic facing women with her hysterical, dead-pan, feminist perspective. Whether she’s talking about women and pooping or women and Sarah Palin, she always hits the nail on the head. Yes, we have a girl crush. And just because we have a lot of girl crushes, doesn’t mean the one we have on her isn’t extra special. Keep reading »

On last night’s “Weekend Update Thursday” — “Saturday Night Live”‘s special election coverage — Will Ferrell showed up to do a skit as George W. Bush, with Tina Fey as Sarah Palin. It was gosh darn hysterical and definitely a teaser for the material Ferrell is going to do in his upcoming comedy show, “You’re Welcome America — A Final Night With George W. Bush”, coming to Broadway in February 2009. One quibble about the skit — Tina’s new bangs are all wrong. [Variety] Keep reading »
A certain amount of meanness can come out during a breakup, it’s only natural — perhaps you clean the toilet with his favorite T-shirt — but some people take it way too far. The Madonna/Guy Ritchie divorce is the perfect example of a celebrity split getting nasty. Yesterday I noted that it was pretty crappy of Madge to outfit her son with Ritchie, Rocco, in a Yankees t-shirt, considering her new BF is Yankees player Alex Rodriguez and she was apparently having spiritually sexual relations with him pre-split. Ritchie thought it was crappy too! According to Us Weekly, he’s “in pieces” after seeing his son in the shirt and “he’s actually been crying over it.”
Of course, if the rumors about their marriage are true, Ritchie may have had a little nastiness coming — he supposedly said that sleeping next to Madonna was like “cuddling up to a piece of gristle.” Oh wait, HA HA, that’s funny and probably true. Whatever. The behavior of these two is nothing new in Tinseltown. After the jump, nasty breakup behavior tips from some of the worst splits in Hollywood. Keep reading »

Sounds like Madonna and Guy Ritchie had some bad fights — she would taunt him with, “I should have married someone like me: strong, hot-blooded, intelligent, ambitious, spiritual.” In return, Guy would call her “old, fat, ugly and wrinkled and said that she was stupid and couldn’t sing.” [Us Weekly]

It’s easy to forget with a Presidential election as exciting as this one that there are actually many, many, many people and bills on the ballot November 4th besides Barack Obama and John McCain. One of the issues that got our attention early is Proposition K, a San Francisco proposal that would decriminalize prostitution in the city. If passed, the law would forbid local authorities from investigating, arresting or prosecuting anyone for selling sex. The ballot measure still technically would not legalize prostitution since state law still prohibits it, but Proposition K would eliminate the power of local law enforcement officials to go after prostitutes. The local Democratic Party has endorsed the measure, but the majority of actual local government officials are opposed. A similar measure in Berkeley lost in 2006 — while San Francisco is typically a liberal-leaning city, it’s pretty up in the air as to whether this Proposition will pass with voters. If it does, SF will become the first major U.S. city to decriminalize sex work. With that in mind, vote in our poll! [The Huffington Post] Keep reading »
