I was pleasantly surprised to discover that blonde, blue-eyed beauty Cate Blanchett went through a goth phase. Really? I mean, I went through one, too, but I never would have expected that from prim and proper Cate. When asked in an interview about how her beauty regime has changed over time, Blanchett admitted, “I’d go to bed with my makeup on if I’d been out. And I went through a big gothic phase, so my pillow was always covered in black mascara and white pancake makeup.” Never would have guessed.
After the jump, some more unexpected celebrity phases.

We’ve all had a giggle fit at an inappropriate moment before, but sometimes it’s just dead wrong. I’m totally miffed by this video of a news anchor seriously losing her s**t as she reports on the case of Stephen Grant, a 37-year-old Michigan man who was convicted of murdering his wife, Tara Lynn Grant. But this is not your run-of-the-mill murder case. It’s completely psychotic. Grant dismembered his wife, chopped up her body, and deposited her bits and pieces in a nearby park. After maintaining his innocence for a while, Grant went on the lam and was finally captured with a Charles Manson-esque look in the eyes, in Michigan’s snowy Wilderness State Park. He was rushed to a hospital with frostbite and hypothermia, but once he was released, he made a graphic confession and was arraigned on Tuesday. OK, I am totally creeped out. Can anyone tell me why this news anchor can’t stop laughing? What am I missing? Did someone fart? I’m sure Tara Lynn Grant’s family loved this clip. [Fox News

We’re so glad that author Alan Weider is finding new ways to celebrate the c**k. After the release of his memoir, The Year of the C**k, a tale about the year his ween obsession reeked havoc on his life, Alan decided to keep the penis love growing by sponsoring a penis haiku (phaiku) contest. If you’re a poetry lover like me, then you probably entered the contest. Well … the esteemed judges have voted on their favorite phaikus. I was disappointed to find out that my entry came in sixth place. Boo! But I must admit the winning entries were c**ktastic. After the jump, the winners’ penile musings. May I suggest a vagina haiku (vaiku) contest next, Alan? Keep reading »
I’ll never forget the night that my little brother Adam was born. (That’s us on the left, by the way.) I was 3 years old and spending the night at my best friend’s house. We were lip-syncing our way through the entire “Footloose” soundtrack, when we got a call that my little brother had been born. I ran around the house screaming like a banshee because I couldn’t wait to meet him. My dad picked me up and brought me to the hospital, where I ran into the hospital room to see my mom holding what looked like a human tadpole. “That’s my brother?” I asked disappointed. Ugh.

I felt really awful for this guy who wrote to Chicago Sun Times columnist Cheryl Lavin looking for help. Basic gist of his letter? He’s a 35-year-old virgin who just wants to “get the monkey off his back.” Fine if it’s a religious or moral choice, but sadly for this dude, it is not. So what did Cheryl suggest for this sexless man?
“I have a feeling your unhappiness over your virginity is inhibiting you with woman. What if you went at it the other way? What if you lost your virginity first, then tried to have a connection with a woman? Your whole personality on a date might blossom. Prostitution is legal in some counties in Nevada. And even where it’s illegal, it’s widespread.”

If you saw “I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant” on TLC, you probably can’t stop wondering how it is possible for a woman not to know she’s pregnant and then slip into a bathroom stall and drop one out? It just seems so incomprehensible to me. How could you miss all of the signs—like the 20 pounds of weight gain in your belly or no period for nine months? Not so subtle, people. In Chile an Olympic weightlifter, Elizabeth Poblete, was in the gym training for a competition when she felt a little bit sick. Wait for it … then she picked up a dumbbell and popped out a baby boy. Surprise! Keep reading »
How weird is it to think that there is someone out there in the world who looks exactly like you? Freaky, right? But what if you were able to see your doppelganger’s face and know her name? Well, get ready to see double because Coke Zero has a new program called Facial Profiler that uses Facebook to find your long-lost twin and even gives you the opportunity to contact her. It picks out pictures from your Facebook profile or you can upload them via webcam and find your face match. So I tried this crazy thingy and discovered that I do indeed have a double. My doppleganger’s name is Lauryn Stone and she’s a 79 percent match. Should I contact her? What do I say? “How does it feel to be so hot?” [Coca Cola Zero] Keep reading »
