Did Kim Kardashian Have A C-Section A Month Early?

Little Kimye has been in the world only a couple of days, yet just like her momma and daddy, she is already causing controversy. Despite the fact that E! News reports that Kim had a natural birth, many are quite convinced that isn’t the case. Witnesses reported that they saw Kim being wheeled into a recovery room for women who had Caesarean sections. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard that Kim was going to opt for an elective C-section — back in April, Star magazine claimed that Kim was planning an early C-section just after the eighth-month mark — which is indeed when little Kimye made her appearance. Read more on The Stir…

Cast Member Spills “Downton Abbey” Season 4 Spoilers

Downton Abbey Season 4 Spoilers

Oh happy day! I have more spoilers on Season 4 of “Downton Abbey.” One of the actors in blabbing, God love him. And we even have a tidbit from Julian Fellowes himself. If you’re still stewing over the revelation that O’Brien is leaving, there’s good news. Her replacement sounds like a juicy character, but in a completely different way. And I think you’ll approve of the way the show ushers O’Brien off stage. Meanwhile, now that we all know Thomas is gay, will Julian Fellowes push the show’s boundaries and write a hot gay sex scene? Read more on The Stir…

Your Baby Name Choice Reveals Your Political Leanings

baby names

Choosing a baby name may be one of the hardest things a parent has to do. I’d say it’s harder than potty training — which has become my nemesis right now. Giving your kid a name, whatever name it is, is the one single word your kid is going to hear for the rest of their life. It’s a BIG deal. It also says a whole lot about you as a parent. It even reveals your political leanings.

Conservatives tend to choose a certain kind of name, and liberals prefer names with a certain kind of sound. Before I reveal, let’s take guesses. Let’s think about the kid names Leo and Kevin. If you had to choose who belongs to the liberal parent and who belongs to the conservative parent, what would you guess? Read more on The Stir…

Woman Discovers Online Boyfriend Is Actually Her Stalker Ex-Husband

Woman Discovers Online Boyfriend Is Actually Her Stalker Ex-Husband

No matter how many times people are warned about conversing with strangers online, people do it. People have a driving need for human interaction, and as our lives become more and more isolated — working from home, living far away from family, conversing with friends only through social media — that intense need for human interaction can loosen your grip on common sense. How else to explain that when a woman met a charming man on a dating site, she struck up an intense online-only relationship with him that included delving into all of the details of her horrible relationship with her ex-husband? The woman was in for a shock when it turned out that the man she’d been confiding in for a year was – none other than her ex-husband. Read more on The Stir…

Taylor Swift’s Look-A-Like Suffers Broken Jaw For Resembling The Most Irritating Pop Star Ever

Xenna Kristian suffers broken jaw for looking like Taylor Swift.

Oh, Taylor Swift. When will your reign of terror finally come to an end?! For a pop star, the 23-year-old sure does seem to bring a lot of “trouble” into other people’s lives. Usually these people are ex-boyfriends, but this time The Curse of Taylor Swift has befallen an 18-year-old girl who doesn’t even know Taylor personally! British college student and professional Taylor Swift look-alike Xenna Kristian was just minding her own business when another female student (clearly NOT president of the Taylor Swift fan club) attacked her for no reason (well, no reason except that she looks like Taylor Swift) and gave her a suspected broken jaw.

“Some girls at college had started making nasty comments, but it escalated really quickly,” said Kristian. “The girl came up behind me and dragged me off my chair by my pony tail, then started kicking me in the face.” Read more on The Stir…

Will “The Walking Dead” Live On For 9 More Seasons?

Here’s a question for “The Walking Dead” fans: how many seasons do you think the show will air? A few more years, tops? AMC’s biggest shows don’t normally last all that long: “Breaking Bad” is wrapping its fifth and final season this summer, and season seven will be the last we’ll see of “Mad Men.”

Well, if AMC Networks CEO Josh Sapan has his way, we’ll be watching “The Walking Dead” for at least nine more years. He’s publicly stated that he hopes the show will still be around in 2022, and that the show, much like the comic series and the shambling undead walkers it depicts, will simply live on forever. Read more on The Stir…

Jennifer Lawrence As A Naked Blue Mutant Is Ridiculously Hot

Jennifer Lawrence: is there anything she can’t do? She’s universally beloved for tripping and falling during the Oscars, she gets away with smoking pot, she admits being star-struck by Honey Boo Boo, she jokes about her butt, and she just so happens to be one of the most gorgeous and intriguing actresses in Hollywood. Also, according to a recently released X-Men image, she looks stupendously hot as a naked blue mutant.

Yesterday, ”X-Men: Days of Future Past” director Bryan Singer tweeted a photo of Lawrence in her role as Mystique, and she looks predictably fantastic. What’s really interesting about the photo, however, is the fact that Lawrence is wearing a completely different Mystique costume this time around — and even with the fairly detailed picture Singer shared, you can’t tell what’s fabric and what’s flesh. Read more on The Stir…

Was Angelina Jolie ‘Duped’ By Doctors Into Thinking She Needed A Mastectomy?

Was Angelina Jolie duped into an unnecessary double mastectomy by greedy surgeons who just wanted to mutiliate her for no other reason than to cash in on the expensive procedure? Such is the theory going around naturalistic circles. There are plenty of people who sincerely believe that cancer — even if you are genetically predisposed to certain types of it – can readily be prevented by certain foods, vitamins, and a healthy lifestyle. If only it were so. Keep reading »

7 Wedding Traditions With Beginnings That May Surprise You

From the minute you get engaged to even several months into being a newlywed, you’re exposed to wedding traditions galore. Some you may be familiar with (very, if you’ve been in/to a lot of weddings) and others that may have slipped your mind completely (because you were distracted by other important matters of business like designing an acceptable seating chart or negotiating with vendors).

Case in point: When my fiance (whoops!) husband and I were on our way back from the airport after getting hitched earlier this month, one of my brilliant colleagues said I had to make him carry me over the threshold when we got home. So funny. I hadn’t even thought of that. And being the history geek that I am, I proceeded to Google it to find out where the seemingly sweet tradition came from. Let me  tell you — I probably shouldn’t have.

Here, that and six other wedding traditions’surprising origins that may make you see them in a whole new light. Read more on The Stir…

10 Must-Pack Items For Your Romantic Spring Getaway

It’s spring and romance is in the air (can’t you smell it within the pollen?). Every spring my husband and I take our annual anniversary five-day weekend, and every spring, we wish it could be 10 days longer. Honestly, is there anything better than luscious weather and your man by your side? I don’t think so.

Personally, I think you need next to nothing (literally) to make it a romantic weekend. The less clothing, the better, naturally, but it’s more than that, too. There are so many ways to up the romance factor and make your getaway so special, you will never want to return.Here are 10 must-pack items for your ultimate romantic spring getaway:

1. Books: I know it sounds counter-intuitive, but waking up with nothing to do and no one to care for and reading together, intertwined, is probably the most romantic feeling in the world. It just doesn’t get better than that. Read more on The Stir…
