The Naked Cowboy Is Running For Mayor Of New York City

Neither rain, nor snow, nor gloom of night can keep “Naked Cowboy” Robert Burck from strumming his guitar in his undies to entertain tourists in New York City. And now the Cowboy wants to show his true devotion to Manhattan—he’s running for mayor. For those of you who have not stood next to the Cowboy’s toned tush, he is a Times Square staple, clad only in tighty-whities, a cowboy hat, and boots. He plays guitar and sings while tourists snap pictures with him. He plans to officially announce his bid for mayor today, and already has plans for raising revenues and tax breaks. His campaign promise is to do “more with less” for NY residents. No problem keeping his promise either—that yummy briefs/boots uniform says it all! [Huffington Post]

Checking off “The Naked Cowboy” on a ballot may seem a bit odd, but we have yet to see what he’s got up his … hat? Hopefully, Robert will fare better than these oddball candidates who failed in their political quests. Keep reading »

A Restaurant Creates A “Model Lounge” With No Commoners Allowed

A restaurant in New York City has opened a lounge where people can rest, eat, get pampered, and just generally escape from the hustle and bustle. Too bad the lounge is only for models. Yes, Delicatessen restaurant in downtown Manhattan has created a “Model Lounge” for tired and “hungry” models to rest and change clothes, if needed, between castings, shoots, and shows. Apparently, models are super happy with the lounge, ’cause a neighborhood coffee shop is just too public and they get hit on all the time. Boo-freakin-hoo. I’m no model, but I would like a special place to unwind, grab a bite and get away from sleazy creepsters. The lounge’s “no men allowed” policy keeps us “commoners” and even male models from bothering the beauties down below. Justin “Rocket” Silverman of the NY Post is the definition of uber-cheese in his inside look at the “Model Lounge.” [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Muslim Woman Lashed For Having A Beer

Kartika Sari Dewi Shukarno, a 32-year-old Muslim model, has committed a crime against Islam—she had a beer in a night club. She didn’t get deliriously drunk, mind you, she had a single beer. And now she will be flogged for her indiscretion—literally, lashed six times with a cane. Shukarno was at a Pahang nightclub in Malaysia when police raided it. She plead guilty to drinking a beer, probably expecting to be fined, which is the usual punishment for an alcohol offense. But hard-core judge Abdul Rahman Yunus told papers that Shukarno’s beating punishment serves as a “lesson to all Muslims.” In all, this single beer will cost her $1,400 and six lash marks on her body. While Shukarno will probs never touch the stuff again, her harsh punishment will not keep all Muslims from taking down a cold one. Sorry, Judge Abdul, but this punishment does NOT fit the crime.

Would You Want To Know If You’re High Risk For Cancer?

We know we’re supposed to head to the lady doctor once a year for a gyno and breast exam to catch any signs of cancer early. But these days, women can even go one step further—they can get genetic testing. Women who get tested for BRCA gene mutations will know if they are 60% more likely to develop breast and/or ovarian cancer over the course of their lives. It’s a great step in cancer prediction and prevention, but for women who test positive it also presents serious issues and some heavy decision-making. [CNN] Keep reading »

Female Movie Directors Kick Ass In The Boys’ Club

When I found out that the director of “The Hurt Locker”—a testosterone-rific movie about a team of soldiers disarming roadside bombs in Iraq—was directed by a woman, I wanted to kick myself. Not out of surprise, but because I was surprised. Why did I automatically think that only a man could direct an intense war movie filled with explosions? Nope, the film is being called an “adrenaline-soaked tour de force of suspense” and it’s all thanks to the directing genius of Kathryn Bigelow. It’s not that I think women can’t make amazing war films. Quite the contrary—I think women have a knack for tapping into raw emotions, and Bigelow creatively mixed high-octane action with emotion and personal relationships. My surprise was simply an innocent, unconscious, yet totally sexist brain fart. And I don’t think I’m the only one. Keep reading »

Durex Condom Wrappers Inspire Sexy Time

Does seeing a used condom wrapper instantly make you want to hop in the sack? Well, Durex thinks so. In a new commercial for their rubbers, the company encourages people of all ages and sexual orientations to bump it out. One couple starts the trouble when their Durex condom wrapper flies out the window and flutters around town to a catchy tune, sexing up whomever it touches. A teen couple stops “studying” when they see the wrapper (like they really were anyway), gramps and granny skip tea time to get their kettles boiling, two male cops realize their “man-in-uniform” fantasies, and a woman closes the shutters to heat up a cocktail party … much like rich British people do on weekends. In fact, this commercial would be a great visual in British sex ed classes. Watch and get inspired. [Gawker] Keep reading »

Buck-Wild Bushes: Secret Service Agents Dish About The Bush Twins In A Tell-All

At first glance, Jenna and Barbara Bush look like polite and proper daughters standing with their presidential parents, Laura and George W. But apparently the wholesome twosome were quite a rebellious pair. A new tell-all book reveals that Jenna and Barbara annoyed the bejeezus out of their secret service agents. And, sheesh, you know it’s bad when secret service agents start talking. A good portion of Ronald Kessler’s book, In the President’s Secret Service: Behind the Scenes With Agents in the Line of Fire and the Presidents They Protect, which will hit bookstores next month, is dedicated to the girls’ various escape methods and the wild goose chases they led their agents on. Not to mention the girls’ many public faux paus cleaned up by agents—most notably protecting Jenna after her drunk-off-his-ass fiancé started a fight in a bar. A former Washington Post reporter, Kessler documents the Bushies’ entertaining past while he looks into the Obama’s secret service present. Somehow I just don’t think protecting Sasha and Malia will be as tiring. Too much “Hannah Montana” is probably their biggest worry. [New York Post] Keep reading »

Couple With The Same Name Ties The Knot

When I Google my name, all I get is websites about Spain. But when Kelly Hildebrandt entered her name in a Facebook search, a cute guy in Texas with the exact same name popped up. Wanting to tell Texas Kelly about the funny coincidence, Florida Kelly wrote him a message. After exchanging a few more increasingly flirtatious messages, Texas Kelly left the Lone Star State to visit the “cute girl” in the picture. A short while after their encounter Kelly Hildebrandt proposed to Kelly Hildebrandt. The Kellys shared their story with NBC’s “Today Show”—just beware of Jenna Wolfe’s cheesy “name” jokes.

Gallery: Celebrity Dream Roles

If Johnny Depp could play any character ever, who do you think he’d pick? Someone historical significant, like Napolean? Someone diabolical, like the Unibomber? An ego-bot, like Donald Trump? Or someone crazy cool, like James Dean? Turns out the answer is none of the above. Johnny Depp says that his dream role would be to play Carol Channing.

“My dream role would be to play musical legend Carol Channing in a biopic of her life. I love her, I really do. She’s amazing. With all the digital technology available these days I could probably pull it off.” [Mirror.co.uk]

While Johnny has yet to be offered the role of the 88-year-old singer/actress, I have an odd feeling he’d probably be pretty good at it. But Johnny’s not the only one with a dream…role. Other celebs have surprised fans with their fantasy picks. Some have even had their dreams come true.
