Meet Colby Brin, a 31-year-old single guy who has agreed that mother knows best when it comes to his love life. His endearingly yenta-esque mom, Geri Brin, is so bound and determined to help Colby find the right lady to settle down with that she has a website dedicated to the cause. Geri doesn’t think she’s meddling—more like helping cast a wider net to catch more fish in the sea. Hmmm … I let my mom help me “cast a wider net” once. BIG MISTAKE. But I digress. Keep reading »

Could this obviously scripted Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston engagement video possibly be any more awkward? Poor Levi looks like he got caught with a butterfly net while Bristol gloats with “I won” subtext. And their kiss rivals Al and Tipper’s infamously gross makeout session at the Democratic National Convention. “It just feels right to be a family,” beams Bristol. Uh, it feels so wrong to me.

Lindsay Lohan is heading to the slammer. But don’t worry about her career being ruined, she has bigger plans for when she gets out of the big house. Supposedly, she wants to open up her very own rehab facility for struggling starlets like herself. Proud mama Dina talked about her daughter’s aspirations to become a rehab mogul. “Lindsay actually wants to open up her own rehab center here and a couple across the country to help other kids and celebs so they don’t fall through the cracks in this town. She mentioned it to me a couple of days ago. She’s really growing up.” Moving. Very moving. [Celebitchy]
After the jump, some special perks we hope to see at The Lohan House, or whatever she decides to call it. Keep reading »
L’universe de Chocolate has a new ad campaign to promote its Chocolate with Whisky truffles. No, it’s not a scantily clad woman on a bed or a happy couple enjoying a truffle while walking arm in arm. It’s a bunch of “drunk babies.” Like this little guy, who looks like he passed out in his car seat after popping 20 of those suckers. Initially, I laughed. But then I felt kind of bad about it. After the jump, some more “drunk babies.” See what you think. Genius advertising or totally inappropriate? [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Well, it’s official, folks, The Iranian Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance has declared our favorite ironic hairstyle, the mullet, illegal. But not because it’s a heinous fashion violation—it’s considered an un-Islamic Western ‘do and an example of the Western Cultural Invasion. Also forbidden for men are “the rooster,” a ponytail with spikey front and a close relative of the mullet. All other “decadent Western cuts” are off limits, too. The punishment for the crime of engaging in mulletry? First time violators get a buzz cut. Serial hair offenders face stiff fines. And barber shops offering decadent cuts will get shut down.
The Iranian government must be getting their fashion news via carrier pigeon because mullets and roosters stopped being in vogue, well, 30 years ago. Maybe we should tell them to get a head start on banning “The Pauly D”? “Jersey Shore” style and Islam definitely don’t mix. [NY Daily News, Slate] Keep reading »
