Which New Alexander Skarsgard Movie Role Is Hotter: Cheating (Shirtless) Husband Or Anarchist Leader?

We have to wait another two months to see what Alexander Skarsgard as Eric Northman isn’t wearing is up to on “True Blood” season 6, and yes, waiting sucks, but thankfully the swoon-worthy Swede has been keeping busy during his Bon Temps hiatus: Skarsgard is starring in two upcoming films, “The East” (co-starring Ellen Can’t-Possibly-Be-Dating-Alexander-Skarsgard Page) and “Disconnected,” co-starring Jason Bateman (phew!). The films are similar in that they both present a dystopian sort of view of modern society gone horribly wrong: “Disconnected” is described as the story of “interconnected characters who are affected — and in some cases destroyed — by the Internet and other forms of modern communication”; “The East” ”follows the exploits of an anarchist collective of the same name which … attacks global conglomerates who have committed a range of environmental, medical, and social injustices.”

Honestly, both movies look pretty damn good, and I’m not just saying that because of ASkars. But since we’re talking about him anyway, let’s see which of his characters — rebel leader Benji in “The East” or philandering former Marine Derek Hull in “Disconnected” – has more in common with the real Alexander Skarsgard? Read more on The Stir…

“Real Housewives Of Atlanta” Star Phaedra Parks Gets A Spinoff Show

Another day, another Real Housewife getting her own show. This time, it’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Phaedra Parks, and while who doesn’t love Phaedra and her charming Southern drawl? — enough already, Bravo!

The spinoff, tentatively called “Rich People’s Problems,” will focus on Phaedra’s originalcareer as an attorney (as opposed to a mortician or donkey booty workout instructor), and it will follow her around as she sorts out the legal disputes of Atlanta’s elite. “Whether it’s friends battling over an $8,000 loan or accusations of stolen Chanel handbags … the rich certainly have an odd sense of what qualifies it as a problem in today’s world, and Phaedra will be there to help them sort it all out,” the tagline reads.

Oh. Okay. Read more…

Google Earns Ridiculous Backlash For Not Showing Eggs Or Jesus On Easter

I was too busy hosting brunch and raiding my kids’ Easter baskets to notice what yesterday’s Google doodle was, but apparently it was INCREDIBLY controversial. The anti-religious leftists in Mountain View had the gall to not only choose a doodle that had nothing to do with colorful eggs, chocolate bunnies, or Jesus H. Christ himself — they honored a big old lefty instead by celebrating would have been the 86th birthday of Latino civil rights leader Cesar Chávez.

Clearly this was a political statement from those sneaky liberals. Why else celebrate the lesser-known birthday of a progressive icon when they could be reminding us all that it was EASTER?

Unless … unless they’re a non-religious organization that isn’t held to a Christian agenda and they’re known for focusing on historical events that educate, rather than consistently pointing out something that everyone’s already aware of? Read more…

Want To Get Rid Of Your Gray Hair For Good? There’s A Pill For That

A new product on the market promises to”cure” your gray hair. Does anyone else find that totally freaky? Or am I just being a hypocrite?

After all, as the press release for “Go Away Gray” (which costs $29.99 for a month’s supply and can be purchased online) so sagely tells us, “Going gray can be a real blow to a person’s self-confidence, and for some it’s a constant reminder of growing older.”

Well, that sure sounds depressing, but unfortunately I can’t really argue with it. While I’m not obsessed with defying my age by any means, I’m definitely not super excited about the side effects of growing older, from my post-baby bosom to those lines in my forehead. Read more…

Kate Upton’s Doppelganger Is Just as Sexy (And Topless) As She Is

If Kate Upton is your doppelganger, you’ve been dealt a pretty good hand. Perhaps not a hand as good as Upton herself, but good. Ania Korkh, a Russian woman who bares a striking resemblance to the gorgeous Sports Illustrated cover girl, decided Hey! Why should Upton be the only gal wearing a fur-hooded parka with nothing underneath? So she tweeted her own version. And even Upton herself thinks the impersonation is uncanny.

After tweeting the photo, along with the message: “Me as Kate Upton @kateupton #doppelganger,” Upton herself retweeted the pic with the word “Amazing!

Sports Illustrated‘s Swim Daily interviewed Ania, who’s a student at Vancouver’s Capilano University, and she said: “I’ve been told I look like her in the past, but when the SI issue came out and she was wearing the same jacket that is hanging in my closet, I knew it had to be done. I didn’t think anyone except my friends would ever see it.” (Sure.) Read more…

7 Things I Hate About Pinterest

Oh Pinterest! I’m addicted to you and all your pretty pictures. Your recipes, your crafts, your hot Ryan Gosling photos. But lately, you’ve been really annoying me and I’m falling out of love at a rapid pace. And yes, I realize that it’s not really your fault but rather all the Pinterest users who feel the need to pin ridiculous crap. So if you’re on Pinterest like me, listen up, and stop ticking off your followers.

1. Weird Nail Art: Oh my goodness, enough with the nail art already. Sure, the polish colors are pretty. And inspiring. But the panda bears? The piano keys? I just can’t take the silliness anymore. Read more…
