Kristen Stewart’s Rumored Sex With Sean Penn Shows The Cheating Scandal Is Far From Over

Ok, so I was just as appalled and shocked as anyone else when Kristen Stewart cheated on Robert Pattinson withRupert Sanders, but seriously — can’t this poor girl catch a break now that the scandal is behind her?

I mean, it was pretty understandable that immediately after the Rupert thing went down, Kristen was hit with a whole slew of other cheating rumors, but now that it’s almost five months later, you’d think the accusations would have died down. (Rob forgave her, so why can’t everyone else?)

Instead, it seems like the claims about her hooking up with other men keep getting crazier and crazier — and now there’s new speculation that she slept with Sean Penn to land her role in ”Into the Wild.” Read more…

Sienna Miller Outdoes Gisele Bundchen In Her “Easy Birth” Brag

There’s just something about women who brag about how easy their births were that’s just. Mmm. I dunno. ANNOYING?! First, Gisele Bundchentold us about her painless birth at home and how “violent” births are in hospitals. (How would she know? I mean, if she’s never had one? Just askin’.) Now we have this doozy from Sienna Miller:

It’s the best, the greatest thing in the world … I would do that day a million times again. I would do that day, every day. I loved it.

She’s not talking about becoming a mom. Nor is she talking about being pregnant – which some women apparently enjoy. She’s not even talking about the making of the baby. She’s talking about having it. Childbirth. Labor. She’d do it every day. All day long, no doubt. Come on, ladies. This isn’t an easy birth bragging contest. Read more…

Female Basketball Star’s Arrest Shows Domestic Violence Isn’t Just a Guy Crime

When you hear about domestic violence, it’s not usually a woman who’s on the offender end of the situation. But this time, the alleged offender is not only a woman, but she’s a woman who should be a role model for girls everywhere. On Thursday evening, former WNBA player Chamique Holdsclaw was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated assault for allegedly bashing in the windows of her ex-girlfriend’s SUV with a baseball bat — and then shooting at the car with a gun. Holy crap. Read more …

David Petraeus & Paula Broadwell’s Al-Qaeda Email Trick Only Made Them Easier To Catch

General David Petraeus may have made a career of keeping secrets, but the ones that pertain to him just keep on leaking. The latest spilt info on the affair between the former CIA Director and his biographer, Paula Broadwell, show how exactly the twosome kept in touch via email.

Hint: It’s a trick used by both al-Qaeda and Don Cheadle. I know, this story really does keep on getting weirder.

Apparently, Broadwell and Petraeus set up a joint email accountthat they never actually sent emails to. They would just save unsent messages to one another in a “Drafts” folder, and then the “recipient” could just log on and read what was written. Pretty clever, huh? Actually, this technique is so clever that it’s been used by al-Qaeda. (And, also, in the 2008 movie Traitor starring Don Cheadle and Guy Pearce.) Didn’t fool the FBI, though. Read more…

6 Signs You’re His Faux Girlfriend

I’ve noticed a startling trend in the dating world: Something I’ll call the “faux-girlfriend” phenomenon. That’s when a guy treats you like a girlfriend in a lot of ways — you spend holidays together, you’ve met his parents, you have your own clothes drawer at his place. In fact, things are so girlfriend-y that it seems the next logical step would be fiancee-y and then wife-y. But something insidious and underhanded is going on. There are men out there (and women too, I imagine) who treat you like a girlfriend — but not really. That’s usually because while he wants the regularity and companionship of a real girlfriend, he doesn’t want the responsibility, the downsides, or the idea of cutting off his options.

How do you know if you might be the faux-girlfriend? Here’s six bigtime clues. Read more…

8 Ways To Help Hurricane Sandy Victims Beyond Donating To The Red Cross

If you watched the Hurricane Sandy relief telethon and texted $10 to the Red Cross when Bruce rocked or Christina crooned, then you are certainly not alone. The telethon raised $23 million dollars for Sandy’s victims. But some of you may be wondering how you can do more. And you may want to know that your money is really going to the victims. I’ve been following the storm’s aftermath very intensely, as many of the areas right around me are devastated.

I’ve been keeping track of the groups that are on the ground and the ones that are MIA. I’ve been asking people who they saw when they came out of their storm-ripped home looking for help. Most of the time, the answer I got was not FEMA or the Red Cross. If you still want to help, here are 8 ways you can help beyond donating to the Red Cross. Read more…
