Don’t Hate Them Cause They’re Beautiful!

“She’s too sexy for her job, too sexy for her job, so sexy…” Yes, I changed the lyrics, but the message still fits. Recently-fired UK prison officer Amitjo Kajila wants payback. The 22-year-old is demanding reparations from Justice Secretary Jack Straw after he allegedly fired her for…being too pretty. Officers said the size 4 Kajila received frequent inmate attention due to her make-up and revealing clothes, posing a security risk to herself and the prison. (Really they’re just jealous!) Kajila claims the other officers bullied her for her appearance and called her a “stupid little girl.” (Hey, It’s not her fault she’s hawt!) I guess besides being locked up, ugly prison guards are another drawback to the clink. [Daily Mail]

Amitjo isn’t the only woman suffering from Pretty People Prejudice (hell, there’s a whole documentary about them!). After the jump, other people who claim their flawless complexion got them the boot. Keep reading »

Hottie Underwear Model Is Arrested For Robbery Spree

Joshua Walter used to walk down the catwalk in his underwear, but it looks like he’ll soon be donning something with a few more stripes on it. The former undies model was arrested Thursday after an alleged robbing spree of 24-hour stores in Queens and Brooklyn, New York. Joshua was nabbed by police after running out of the Astro van getaway car that he and three other guys supposedly used in the robberies. The 20-year-old boy-toy turned bad-boy lives with his girlfriend, Gina Salamino—a 37-year-old ex-second grade school teacher who was fired for having sex and a love child with Joshua when he was 17. Joshua is charged with robbery and criminal possession of a firearm. But now he can add a mugshot to his modeling portfolio! [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Madonna’s Stage Claims Another Life

Madonna’s “Sweet and Sticky” tour has claimed victim #2. While setting up the lighting for Madge’s concert in Marseilles, France, on Thursday, a crane collapsed, killing a 53-year-old French man and a 32-year-old Brit. Madonna has canceled her Sunday concert and sends her deepest condolences to the families. Hopefully the three other people currently hospitalized will have a smooth recovery. [CNN]

Unfortunately, Madonna’s “Sticky” stage situation is not the only concert tragedy to note. The dangerous world of concerts after the jump. Proceed with caution. Keep reading »

Boy Arrested For Bombing Starbucks, Just Like Brad Pitt

Some people are so unoriginal these days. A 17-year-old kid was arrested Tuesday night for a bombing inspired by Brad Pitt’s character Tyler Durden in the movie “Fight Club.” Kyle Shaw set off the homemade bomb made of fireworks powder, a metal cap, a plastic bottle, and electrical tape around 3:30am. His target—a Starbucks, just like in the film. No one was hurt in the blast, but Shaw faces charges of arson, criminal mischief, and criminal possession of a weapon. Looks like Kyle really took the movie to heart—Kyle and his no-doubt equally dim friends run their own fight club kicking each other’s asses in Central Park. Hopefully they can just knock each out from “reenacting” more movie scenes. [Huffington Post]

These “Fight Club” groupies aren’t the only movie buffs to bring scripted crimes to life. Here are more real-life deviants not creative enough to draft their own crimes. Keep reading »

Palestine Kids Show Teaches About Suicide Bombing

Usually, children’s television shows teach kids to treat others nicely—to share toys and be good sports. Generally, they don’t glorify suicide bombing and promote “violent resistance” against Israel. But alas, a horrifying episode of the Palestinian Hamas-run children’s show “Young Pioneers” basically encourages children to become young martyrs. In the episode, two young girls—the daughters of suicide bomber Reem Riyashi—sit with other kids in a colorful room as they are shown a reenactment of their mother’s suicide bombing, in which she killed herself and four Israelis. Hello? Kids should never be shown something so incredibly violent. Not to mention that, afterwards, an announcer called for them to follow “the doctrine of the martyr Reem Riyashi.”

The Next Generation Of Tell-All Books

Note to all the overbearing bosses out there: don’t piss off your assistants, or else they’ll write a thinly-veiled, scathing tell-all book about you and call it fiction. Years ago, we learned all about impossible-to-please Vogue powerhouse Anna Wintour after reading The Devil Wears Prada. Soon, we’ll know what it’s like to work for an overly-tan, washed-up celebrity publicist—Lizzie Grubman. Remember her? She ran over a group of people in her SUV and didn’t even try to brake? Well, anything that’s left of Lizzie’s credibility is about to be demolished by her former assistant, Robert Rave. Rave’s novel, Spin, documents the trials and tribulations of a young assistant working for a cocaine-snorting PR bitch who (shocker!) resembles Grubman. It comes out next month, and just because he’s calling it fiction doesn’t mean it won’t be filled with real-life experiences of Robert getting verbally abused. [Gawker]

Oh, but Robert is not the only insider letting the juicy details fly. Here is the next wave of celebrity tell-alls in the works. Keep reading »

“True Blood” And Other Shows We Can’t Believe Didn’t Get Emmy Nods

Mulling over the list of the 2009 Emmy Nominations released earlier today, I felt pretty good—Tina Fey and “30 Rock” pulled in 22 nominations, and “Mad Men” reeled in 16. “Lost,” “Flight of the Conchords,” “Weeds, “How I Met Your Mother”—they were all there. But I was flabbergasted to find that my beloved “True Blood” was nowhere to be found. I thought for sure this had to be a typo, but upon further inspection, I noticed a few other glaring omissions. After the jump, the categories we wish the Emmy folks would add so that all of our favorites walk out of the awards ceremony with a statue. Keep reading »

The “Women Commandoes” Of Iran

There is no doubt that women in Iran are at the forefront of the post-election protests. Now, the Iranian intelligence agency has finally given a name to these fierce females. On a website linked to Iran’s intelligence ministry, “women commandoes” is the term used to describe this strong female force. Apparently “woman commando #1” heading the women’s election protest for the “Green Movement” is said to be Zahra Rahnarvard, Mir Hossein Mousavi’s wife and popular activist. But a panel recently held at the Woodrow Wilson Center in DC about Iranian women’s role in election protests explained that the strong female outpouring the world is seeing now has always been around—cleverly hidden before through education and quiet organization. While many of these women in Iran are not part of the military the military-ish term “women commandoes” only shows just how powerful a force these women are. [The Nation] Keep reading »

Babysitter Arrested For Private “Playtime”

Little boy fantasizes about his hot babysitter. That’s how the story usually goes—NOT the other way around. But it seems that 28-year-old Summer Nelson got confused. She had sex with the 14-year-old boy she was hired to watch…by her friend…his MOTHER. Summer started watching the teenager and his 12 and 9-year-old siblings in August 2007 and kept up the “babysitting” charade until her antics were reported to police by a third party last December. Umm, I’m sure the siblings finally caught on to “playtime” whenever Summer came to babysit. And that’s not the worst part—this girl must have taken a trip to crazy town when she asked the boy’s mother for her blessing and told the boy’s siblings they were in love. If convicted of all four counts of lewd conduct with a minor, Summer will experience some extreme babysitting—life in prison. Just don’t let her near Juvie! [CNN] Keep reading »

A Third Bridget Jones Movie Is In The Works!

Bridget Jones is having a baby?! The British 40-something “singleton” will be back in a third film, this time focusing on her quest to become a mama. Based on author Helen Fielding’s newspaper columns instead of a book, Renee Zellweger will once again pork up her teensy frame to play the full-figured female cluelessly sabotaging her relationship with Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) and fighting her lingering attraction to ex-boss/lover Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant). No writer or director has been chosen yet to tell what should be a ridiculous adventure on the baby trail. So here are our predictions for Bridget’s third entry about life with “workaholics, alcoholics, commitment phobics, perverts and fu**wits” … and maybe a baby. [Variety] Keep reading »
