I am definitely a big fan of Craigslist—it’s helped me get rid of a bunch of old crap and even led me to the cute couch that’s now sitting in my teeny apartment. But it’s another bad PR day for the site. A man in North Carolina posted an ad on Craigslist to find someone to rape his wife. This is already wrong in so many ways, but the worst part is, someone responded. He came to the man’s house armed with a knife and assaulted the wife, while the husband watched and their two children slept in another room. The attacker was arrested Sunday—and the husband was led out in handcuffs on Wednesday. Hopefully his wife will be okay. And will instantly file for divorce.
All I have to say is, people, please stop using Craigslist for evil. Keep reading »
The new issue of Vanity Fair comes out today, and it’s graced by Johnny Depp’s tousled hair and Mona Lisa smile. The interview took place in paradise on Johnny’s private Caribbean island. In between sipping daiquiris and plunging into the deep blue, writer Douglas Brinkley pieced together an oddly revealing portrait of the mysterious hunksicle. After the jump, the juiciest bits on Johnny. Keep reading »
We’ve all heard of sympathy pains, though we definitely question their authenticity. But according to a new study, many men also pack on the pounds when the women in their lives are pregnant. On average, they gain about 14 pounds. And out of the 5,000 guys that participated in the survey, only 30% said they went on a diet with their partners after the baby was born. So why do they get pudgetastic? At least part of it has to do with anxiety over becoming a father. The fact that they also partake in weird craving meals probably has something to do with it, too. Also fascinating: scientists have coined a term for this phenomenon, “Couvade Syndrome,” whereby men get a lot of the symptoms their pregnant partners get, ranging from basic morning sickness to (this is uber-weird) contractions.
Now I am very far away from getting pregnant, light years even, but I do know one thing: I would much rather have my future hubby stay in shape so I have something hot to look at instead of wondering which of us is actually having a baby. Keep reading »
Holy hotness—Johnny Depp is on the cover of Vanity Fair that’s coming out tomorrow. And this dude really can’t get enough of the Caribbean. After filming three movies there, in 2004, he decided to buy his own private island in the Bahamas. Depp and his family bask in the sun on Little Hall’s Pond Cay Island, which has six beaches. Three are named after members of Johnny’s family, another is called “Brando,” and yet another is “Gonzo” after his idol and friend, Hunter S. Thompson. Johnny likes to keep things in the family. His 156-foot yacht is dubbed Vajoliroja—a word made-up of syllables of his family’s names.
Interestingly, many celebs own private islands. I guess they need somewhere paparazzi-free to escape from all the parties, premieres, and their own fabulousness? Here are a few celebs that sunbathe in solitude.

You may think your mother is bad, but this mama takes the cake. No really, she probably took it. Arizona mother Cynthia Robertson has been charged with masterminding 20 cases of armed robbery and aggravated assault in Phoenix, Arizona. How did mama Robertson do it? She used her bad financial situation and unemployment to guilt her two young sons, ages 12 and 14, and their friends into robbing people. Seriously, I know the economy sucks, but geez. Keep reading »
