Woman Steals $3.99 Bottle Of Wine To Reunite With Her Jailed Boyfriend

Alicia Walicke, a 22-year-old from Cedar Park, Texas, was devastated when her boyfriend was arrested and sent to the county jail — so she set out to join him there. Walicke shoplifted a $3.99 bottle of wine from a local gas station and then sat down outside to drink it, waiting for the cops to catch up to her. When she arrived in jail, she provided a proud smile for her mugshot, likely still jittery from her “romantic” gesture. Walicke has two previous convictions for theft and a prior arrest for biting a police officer. She had to post a $5,000 bail to be released — imagine how much of that cheap gas station wine she could’ve bought instead! No word on whether she actually got to see her boyfriend while she was locked up, or why simply going to see him on visitor’s day like everyone else wasn’t enough for her. True love, am I right?

Fashion Blogger Dana Suchow Gets Real About Photoshopping Her Images

Dana Suchow

Last week, Dana Suchow of the fashion blog Do The Hot Pants shared with her readers that she’d used Photoshop in the past to alter some of her self portraits. She posted a slew of unretouched photos, pointing out where she’d previously shaved a few inches off her stomach or brightened her skin. She wrote:

“In my ongoing mission to lift the veil that is currently suffocating us women, I realized that I, Hotpants, haven’t been entirely truthful with you…because I want to be as transparent with you as possible, I’ve decided to expose the instances where I used photoshop to distort and change my body. I know it might only look like an inch or 2 removed from my waist, or a couple zits blurred here and there, but my stomach and my skin have been huge insecurities for me my entire life. So me revealing these images to you are a HUGE DEAL 4 ME & not to be taken lightly. I’m putting my flaws out there, as little or as big as they seem, so please respect that this isn’t easy for anyone.”

These Literal Kitten Heels Are A Dream Come True

Cat Heels

Cat lady PSA: these Paw Print shoes by Irregular Choice allow you to walk on kitties all day long. The shoes are designed by Dan Sullivan, and in the place of a typical 4-inch heel is a 4-inch smiling cat figurine. Last year, the company sold similar shoes with bunnies, gnomes, and even little Santas serving as heels, but let’s be real, none of those come close to competing with these cat creations. Anyone who owns a pair of these is living the dream as far as I’m concerned, and should probably be my best friend so I can borrow them. [Image via Irregular Choice]

Watch Frank Underwood From “House Of Cards” Impersonate Bill Clinton

Frank Underwood
Frank Just Can't Quit Scheming

In honor of Bill Clinton’s 68th birthday, Hillary apparently called up her pal Kevin Spacey to line up the ultimate gag gift — a “House Of Cards”-themed video. Frank Underwood impersonating Bill Clinton (well, more than usual) is one of the more terrifying things I’ve seen in a while, but in the most entertaining of ways. Totally worth the watch. [Jezebel]

Tori Amos’ Cover Of “Creep” Is Pretty Much Amazing

Tori Amos
Gorgeous

Tori Amos covered Radiohead’s “Creep” at a concert in New York City last week, and it was totally kickass. Who knew a ’90s hit could have such staying power? The song is 22 years old now, and Radiohead rarely performs it anymore. Luckily for us, plenty of awesome artists have shared their own moving interpretations, and Tori’s is no exception.
