Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Profile for Daniela Guernica
It’s nice when big name celebrities make time in their high-profile lives to spend with their kids. Just take Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon. Susan recently joined her 24-year-old daughter, Eva Amurri, for some mother-daughter bonding time… pole dancing. Yup, Susan accompanied Eva to her daughter’s pole-dancing training for her stripper role in the third season of “Californication.” But Susan didn’t let Eva go at it alone. Like a good mother, Susan got up and slid down a pole herself. You know, just for kicks. [NYMag.com] While I’m sure Susan’s mommy-daughter strip outing was a well-intentioned and admittedly a funny one-time event, there are a few other parent-child bonding moments we’re not so sure we can approve of.
Apparently, all you have to do to break a world record is tip over a mattress. OK, well, lots of mattresses. And you physically have to be on top of them as they fall. A group of employees at Bensons for Beds in England has done just that. The 41 participants are awaiting confirmation from the Guinness Book of World Records, but they think they’ve set the record for the largest game of mattress dominoes ever played. And since there is no other documented and submitted game of “mattress dominoes,” there’s a pretty good chance they’ll win. Thankfully, the group not only sent their video in to Guinness but also posted it on YouTube. Please enjoy their awesomely creative take on a classic game. With a surprise twist at the end!

The new issue of Heeb has got me downright confused. The hip Jewish magazine’s feature story, “That Oven Feelin’,” features pictures of Roseanne dressed as Hitler, baking and eating burnt “Jew cookies.” The crazy doesn’t stop at the photos. In a pretty shocking interview with the 55-year-old Jewish actress, Roseanne seems to have dropped off the sane-train since her television days. Now residing in Utah, Roseanne blogs and writes essays about menopause and medicine and tells Heeb she’s the reincarnated soul of Hitler. Also that macadamia nuts are the staple of perfection? What the putz!? [Heeb Magazine] Keep reading »
My Dearest Jude Law,
It was only a few years ago that I was pining after your sexy European bod. You were smart, sly, and so appealing. But now, that sultry smile that once got me all hot and bothered now looks more like a pervy grin. And you kinda just seem like a douchey losertron. You may be trying to win me back by playing Watson in “Sherlock Holmes,” but to tell you the truth, you may have fallen so far from grace that it’s just not possible. You’re like the male Lindsay Lohan.
After the jump, a look at Jude’s short Up and very long Down. Keep reading »
Holy hilarity! Thursdays this fall just got funnier. “SNL” alum/comic genius Amy Poehler will return to her comedic anchor seat alongside Seth Meyers for “Saturday Night Live Weekend Update Thursdays.” My all-time favorite “SNL” skit took a hit when Tina Fey and Amy left the show, but the Thursday night special that began during the presidential election is back. And hopefully, the Poehler-punch will bring it back to its original level of awesomeness. “Weekend Update Thursdays” starts September 17, before the premieres of “Parks and Recreation” and “30 Rock.” If you squint hard enough, you can pretend that Amy and Tina are both behind the anchor’s desk, together again.

Want a new iPod? Or a Wii? Or a Fujitsu laptop? Get tested for STDs! In a new attempt to get England’s sexually rampant youth out of the bedroom and into a clinic, Britain’s National Health Service is entering folks who get tested in raffles for expensive high-tech toys and even weekend getaways. Why? Because there’s been a serious chlamydia outbreak there lately, and the disease is now the number one STD in the country. The NHS is dipping into taxpayer’s money, practically bribing folks to get tested. [Daily Mail]
A woman in England is giving OctoMom, the Gosselins, and the Duggars a run for their money. Theresa Winters is pregnant with her 14th child, but she’s never actually raised any of her other 13 kids past the age of two. Social Services keeps taking them! After the perpetually-pregnant mother was “taken into care” when she was younger, Social Services deemed her unfit to care for her children. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
On Monday, eight-months-pregnant Darlene Haynes of Massachusetts was found dead in her bedroom, her unborn baby cut from her womb. Amazingly, this tragic murder has a silver lining: Darlene’s baby girl has been found alive. Police found the baby with one of Darlene’s friends, Julie A. Corey, in New Hampshire yesterday. When some of Darlene’s friends heard about the grisly murder, they tipped off authorities that they had seen Corey shortly before, carrying around a newborn girl. Corey claimed she had recently given birth, “sometime” between July 23th and 24th, and couldn’t remember the name of the Massachusetts hospital where she’d had the baby. Corey is currently charged with being a fugitive from justice, but something tells me that in the end she’ll be charged with something much stronger. Police are currently investigating what happened in this heinous crime. The most important part is that Darlene’s baby girl is healthy and getting proper medical attention. [CNN] Keep reading »
Free Willy, who? Mila the beluga whale is officially the most amazing creature under the sea. Well, at least, under the pool. During a free-diving competition at the Polar Land pool in China, Mila noticed a diver in distress. On the way up from holding her breath at the bottom of a 20-foot-deep pool, panic struck diver Yang Yun because the arctic cold temperature of the water paralyzed her legs. She started sinking deeper into the freezing pool, and without any breathing equipment, Yang thought she was going to die. Until (cue heroic music), Mila the beluga whale swam over, put Yang’s leg in her mouth, and pushed her to the surface. Diving to the bottom of a 20-foot-deep arctic pool sounds like a recklessly stupid competition to me, but Mila using her beluga nose to help Yang to safety is nothing short of truly heartwarming. Yay Mila! [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
Throughout this year’s Iranian presidential elections, women flooded the streets. Now, improving women’s rights is a hot topic with Iranian lawmakers. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the women in Afghanistan. Many hoped that a U.S. presence in the country would bring more focus on the women’s movement. But it turns out that once the Taliban leaders left town, equally malicious Afghan warlords took their place. Because of fear of further oppression, today’s Afghan women’s movement uses underground tactics—mainly, forming secret organizations to educate women. But two Afghan women say it’s time to rise above the fray. Pashtoon Azfar and Malalai Joya are not keeping their thoughts quiet—they’re practically shouting them from the rooftop. And they face constant death threats and possible execution. [Jezebel] Keep reading »
