Mother’s Day Gift Guide For Lucille Bluth-Types

lucille bluth mothers day g1 jpg
Some of us were lucky enough to grow up with a mom like Donna Reed or Carole Brady, a mom who was always on standby with a PBJ sandwich, a Band-Aid or some motherly words of wisdoms.

The rest of us … well, our moms our more like Lucille Bluth from “Arrested Development.” A hard-drinking and narcissistic mama like Lucille is always on-hand with a strong martini and a muscle relaxant, usually taken in tandem.

Moms like Lucille may be the reason you — and the Bluth clan — are in therapy three days a week. But dammit, she’s a mother, too, and that means you need to get her something for Mother’s Day. Because if you don’t, you know you’ll be hearing about it.

Who Is Pippa Middleton’s Boyfriend, Alex Loudon?

Over one short weekend, the world became captivated with Pippa Middleton: the dress, the smile, the derriére. And though lots of people seem to think it’s not weird to suggest Pippa and Prince Harry get together, the reality is that Her Royal Hotness already has a boyfriend and apparently might soon be walking down the aisle on her own. (It won’t be Westminster Abbey, though.) The lucky guy is a hot piece of ass and former cricket star named Alex Loudon. Keep reading »

Carla Bruni Pregnant With Twins, Magazine Claims

Carla Bruni is pregnant with twins, according to French magazine Voici. The 43-year-old singer/actress/model/French First Lady already has a nine-year-old son, Aurelian, from another relationship. Carla is allegedly due to have her first child/children by French President Nicolas Sarkozy in October. But Carla is being mum about any potential pregnancy. When asked in an interview on Monday if she is pregnant, the Telegraph claims Carla said:

“If you’ll allow me, I’d rather not answer these questions about my family. I’d love to talk to you woman to woman about my family life, my personal dreams – and I’m really a very chatty person. But on this subject, I’m going to keep quiet. Not through arrogance or because I like keeping secrets. I am remaining tight-lipped about that to protect something. I would really like to to talk about it, but then it would take over everything else. And besides, it also involves people, so I’m not answering.”

Sounds like a non-confirmation confirmation to me! Another magazine, VSD, claims a senior aide to President Sarkozy also confirmed her pregnancy in off-the-record remarks. Sarkozy’s communications officer refused to comment, saying “That is a subject that is none of my business.” I guess we’ll have to wait un petit peu longer for an official confirmation about a trés trés chic bébé.

  • OH HELL NO. Miley Cyrus covered Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” at a concert in Ecuador and possibly had a seizure onstage before she started singing. Oh, that’s her dancing? Kurt Cobain is rolling over in his grave. No wonder Courtney Love does so many drugs. [BuzzFeed]

Jesse Eisenberg’s Mom Was A Birthday Party Clown

“She didn’t do my parties. That would have been strange. What she would do would be to barter with a local magician, so she’d do the magician’s kids’ parties for free. Although the magician cost a little more, so we had to give him a pie as well. To make it an equal transaction. Anyway, as you might imagine, she’s very supportive of the arts. A lot of the things I do are so ridiculous, but not at all compared with what she’s done. So that’s nice … she knows what it’s like to put yourself out there and make yourself vulnerable in order to entertain.”

— Ever wondered why Jesse Eisenberg is so adorably dorky and awkward? Growing up with a mother who worked as a birthday party clown probably had something to do with it. This makes me love him even more. [Guardian UK] Keep reading »

Lara Logan Speaks Out On “60 Minutes” About Her Sexual Assault In Egypt’s Tahrir Square

Last night on “60 Minutes,” reporter Lara Logan shared with the world the horrific beating and sexual assault she suffered in Egypt‘s Tahrir Square while reporting on the country’s revolution. Since the incident on February 11, the world knew Logan had been separated from her producer, cameramen and bodyguards and assaulted by a mob of angry men. Logan was eventually rescued first by Egyptian women who protected her until Egyptian soldiers plucked her from the angry mob. In a 13-minute long segment on “60 Minutes,” Logan gave a firsthand account of being at first molested and then raped “with their hands” by hordes of men for approximately half an hour; her clothing was torn from her body, some of her hair was ripped out, and her limbs were pulled with such force so that her muscles were sore for days. Logan said she is speaking out now to put a public face and a story to the sexual assaults and rapes endured by women (and surely some men) in the news media while reporting. Many are reluctant to speak up about their assaults, lest it be used against them in advancing their careers — but not Lara Logan. She is a hero and a survivor. [CBS News] Keep reading »
