"Problem" Wive? Move To Saudi Arabia!
  • “Problem” wife not respecting your “authority” as the “head of household”? Move to Saudi Arabia, advises Pat Robertson of the Christian Broadcasting Network, where you could “become a Muslim” and “beat her.” And it gets worse if you listen to the full clip. Oh Jesus.

Jessica Simpson Shills For Weight Watchers On "Katie"

“I’ve just had a lot of pressure on me to lose my baby weight,” said Jessica Simpson, the very first guest on Katie Couric’s new daytime talk show “Katie.”

The episode about Jessica’s post-baby weight loss was actually more tasteful than I expected — she didn’t do a huge “body reveal moment” or pull out an old pair of huge-ass pants. But at the same time, Jessica shilled, shilled, shilled and it kinda felt like an hour-long commercial for Weight Watchers. Keep reading »

New York City police have arrested a 26-year-old woman who has been posing as a Columbia University freshman throughout orientation and the first days of school … even though she’s not even enrolled as a Columbia student.

Briva Patel pretended to be 20-year-old “Rhea Sen,” attending Columbia’s orientation events like trips to the Bronx Zoo and a music festival in Brooklyn. Even though “Rhea Sen” didn’t have a Columbia student ID, orientation leaders and fellow students saw her around the dining halls and even attending classes, The Columbia Spectator reports.

Swedes Try, Fail To Make Wine In A Box Classy With Booze Purse

It is a truth universally acknowledged that wine in a box can never be classy. Ever. But the Swedes, bless their hearts, made a damn good attempt with their wine-in-a-box purse. Allow me to explain: Vernissage Wines created a boxed wine which is shaped like a handbag, including a strap for easy carrying. If you’re tromping down the street on the way to one of their “Real Housewives”‘ houses, no one can tell on the street that you’re actually carrying cheapo Chardonnay. According to the NPR, unique packaging for wine is a trend all across Europe and Vernissage teamed up with the handbag designer Sofia Bloomberg to create their wine bag in 2010.  The booze purse is headed to the United States in the new few weeks and you had best believe that The Frisky staff will be testing the hell of that new product. (At $20 for 1.5 liters and $40 for 3 liters, we’d have to be drunk not to.) Part of me wants to shake my fist in the air that companies are appealing to women by packaging alcohol in a cutesy purse, but honestly if it makes wine easier to carry, I say it’s a net gain. [NPR]
