“Bachelor Pad”: Who’s Doing What With Whom In Episode 3

Click here to see a bigger graphic.

Last night’s episode of “Bachelor Pad” should have been called “The One Where They Try and Give Each Other Mono.” See, this week’s big competition was a kissing contest — every Bach and Bachelorette had a turn at being blindfolded, as the opposite sex took turns kissing them with as much gusto and tongue as they could muster. Then the blindfolded one would vote on which person was the best kisser and so on. Basically, ABC is not even trying to stand in the way of these dorks sharing bodily fluids. Do they at least test them for herpes? Keep reading »

10 Hilarious Celebrity Excuses For Their DUIs

dui excuses g1 jpg
British cricket player Graeme Swann was pulled over for drunk driving and blamed it on his cat. He told officers that he “had come back to find his cat trapped under the floorboards in his house. He had gone to Asda to fetch some screwdrivers to remove some floorboards,” and that is why he was driving drunk in the middle of the night. He was apparently slurring but mostly just upset about his cat. As far as DUI excuses go, that’s a pretty original one. It seems that celebrities will say just about anything to try to get out of an arrest. We’ve rounded up 10 offenders. [Yahoo]

Lisbeth Salander’s Ikea Purchases From “The Girl Who Played With Fire”

In The Girl Who Plays With Fire, the second book in the Stieg Larsson series, off-kilter heroine Lisbeth Salander blows major cash in an Ikea shopping spree (it is Sweden after all). Apartment Therapy has compiled (nearly) all of her purchases into this handy image based on the product details revealed in the book. The only thing we would have done differently is throw in a Billy’s Pan Pizza for fun (even though you can’t buy Lisbeth’s favorite frozen food at Ikea). [Apartment Therapy] Keep reading »

Audiences Do Not Want To Pay To Watch Jennifer Aniston On The Big Screen

It needs to be said: Jennifer Aniston literally cannot carry a movie. Her latest, “The Switch,” bombed in its opening weekend, making only $8.1 million at the box office. This is significantly less than the opening weekend numbers for “The Bounty Hunter,” that horrifyingly bad movie she made with Gerard Butler, which was panned by critics and hated by audiences. That movie made over $20 million in its first three days and was considered a big ol’ failure. Aniston’s other recent films have done piss poor too: “Love Happens” made only $8 million its first weekend, while “Management” did less than $400,000. “He’s Just Not That Into You” was Aniston’s last big money maker, but she was only one player in an ensemble; “The Break-Up” was the last movie headlined by Aniston (alongside Vince Vaughn) to be considered a true success, making $39.2 million its opening weekend.

Teen Made To Babysit For Free As Punishment


I only got in serious trouble once when I was a teen — I was a well-behaved dork, what can I say? I had been stealing change from a bowl of coins my dad had been saving and, once discovered, he made me collect signatures for some sort of political petition in exchange for not telling my mom what a little thief I was. I got off the hook pretty easy, I have to say. But 16-year-old Kirstin Rausch’s dad is not as easygoing, though he is almost as creative. See, Kristin had her friends over at her house later than she was supposed to, so as punishment, her dad took out an ad — with her photo! — for 30 hours of free babysitting in the local newspaper. This seems way harsh to me, and if I were a parent, I don’t know that I would want some teen being forced to babysit my kids for no money. Anyway, the public shaming is really the bigger punishment, isn’t it? Did her dad force her to wear that terrible hair bow on national TV too? How did your parents punish you when you broke the rules as a teen? [CBS News] Keep reading »

Quotable: Fantasia Confirms Overdose Was A Suicide Attempt

“I didn’t have any fight in me. I didn’t care about anything. I just wanted out. At that moment, I wanted out. I wanted it to be over with – all of it, all of that s**t … I just sat in the closet and looked at the mirror and took all the pills in the bottle. I wanted to go to sleep and just be at peace. I knew exactly what I was doing. You can’t accidentally take a whole bottle of pills.”

Fantasia Barrino tells VH1′s “Behind the Music” that her overdose earlier this month was not accidental and that she was trying to take her own life. So sad — I hope she gets the help she needs. Fantasia’s episode “Behind the Music” will air tomorrow night, the same day that her new album, Back to Me, is released. [People] Keep reading »
