“I know that for me, I need to try to cover myself while breastfeeding so that no one snaps a picture. If this wasn’t the case, I probably wouldn’t mind as much because my son is my biggest concern. My attitude is, if someone sees a little somethin’ somethin’, don’t look if you don’t like it.”
— Kourtney Kardashian, mama to baby Mason, weighing in on sister Kim’s recent foot-in-mouth tweets about a woman breastfeeding at a restaurant. I prefer “Sensible Kourtney” to “Let Me Wax Your Bikini Line For You Kourtney.” [E! Online.com] Keep reading »
Finally, some Miley Cyrus news that doesn’t have to do with Perez Hilton and her vajayjay!
Miley performed her new song “Can’t Be Tamed” at the MuchMusic Awards in Toronto this weekend, but not everyone is happy with the performance. Some blogs say the tiki torches, her backup dancers’ tribal-looking face paint, and the part where she looks like she’s being dragged on a stick (say, like a wild boar?) is offensive to aboriginal cultures.

My first introduction to s-e-x was at the New England Aquarium in Boston when I was in 4th grade. My friends and I were on a Girl Scout trip and let’s just say us Girl Scouts knew about more than just tasty cookies after watching a pair of rock hoppers in the penguin pen. The next year, the health teacher separated the boys into one room and the girls into another room for the big puberty talk. By that point, I had read enough Judy Blume books to understand about menstruation, but fun facts about sexual activity — in humans, of course — were news to me.
I wasn’t the only kiddie who grew up naive about the birds and the bees: the Facebook group, “We bet we can find 100,000 people who were clueless about sex growing up!” has 120 members so far and is growing. After the jump, read a couple funny — er, funny/sad — stories from the sex ed trenches. Keep reading »
Who wants to marry an accused serial killer? Joran van der Sloot, 22, who has been charged with killing a young Peruvian woman in her hotel room, told De Telegraaf newspaper that he has received several marriage proposals. “One of them even wants me to get her pregnant,” he said. Ladies, really, get some standards!
Granted, van der Sloot is as reliable as a ripped condom: he has admitted, and then retracted, confessions linking him to the 2005 disappearance of Natalee Holloway, a teenager on vacation in Aruba. Van der Sloot also told police he killed Stephany Flores, 21, but later retracted his confession. But I guess he is rather attractive in that probably-a-murderer kind of way? I’m kidding.

Missing Nikki Blonsky from your life after the 2007 remake of “Hairspray”? Have no fear, she’s back again: not in a John Waters musical this time, but on “Huge,” a new TV series about plus-size teens at a weight loss camp.
“Huge” stars Blonsky, 21, as a girl sent to the camp by parents who want her to drop some pounds, which is not in her plans at all. Blonsky stars alongside Hayley Hasselhoff — yes, The Hoff’s daughter — who is totally gung-ho about losing weight because she’s convinced her life will be awesome if she’s skinny and hot. Most of the cast memebrs are plus-size actors and actresses. “I don’t think there’s ever been a full cast of plus size people before,” says Blonsky.
You better believe I’ll be parked in front of the boob tube when “Huge” debuts on Monday, June 28th on ABC Family at 9 p.m. EST. After the jump, Nikki Blonsky talks about being a plus-size actress, her dream to sing on “Glee,” and her pal, Zac Efron. Keep reading »
“It seems crazy. I have less of an issue with [sex onscreen] than with things exploding. Sex is OK, everybody does it. Most of us don’t throw bombs.”
— Julianne Moore on how sex scenes were trimmed in her new movie, “The Kids Are All Right,” so it could get an R-rating. In the flick, Moore plays the lesbian partner of Annette Bening. [AfterEllen.com] Keep reading »
Before “Jersey Shore” appeared, calling someone a “guido” was offensive. Like, you did not do that unless you were cruising for an ass-kicking. Then there was this bizarre post-”Jersey Shore” era where you heard words like “guido” and “guidette” more on MTV than “boobs” or “oh my God, Heidi, you have to break up with Spencer!”
Not anymore, says Andre DiMino, head of UNICO, an Italian-American pride group. Keep reading »
