Who Is Calling Michelle Obama Fat?

Michelle Obama? Fat? The woman whose toned upper-arms have headlined the 10 o’clock news? Who would dare say such a thing? In a cartoon on a conservative web site called BigGovernment.com, the First Lady and the president are depicted chowing down on dinner — she with a pile of hamburgers and French fries and he with a few lettuce leaves. The joke here, I guess, is that she’s a hypocrite because she actually eats junk food sometimes? I don’t get the joke. What’s offensive about the cartoon, though, is how Michelle Obama is drawn with pudgy jowls, and bulging arms, and snaps at Barack, “Shut up and pass the bacon!” According to the media watchdog group Media Matters For America, a previous version of the cartoon that appeared online had Michelle saying, “Shut up and pass the lard!” Keep reading »

Irina Shayk Bones Cristiano Ronaldo, Poses For Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Cover

Irina Shayk in Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition

As if boning Cristiano Ronaldo wasn’t reason enough to hate Irina Shayk! The 24-year-old Russian model and her ah-may-zing tatas are the 2011 cover of Sports Illustrated‘s spank-bankable esteemed swimsuit edition. So, who is Irina Shayk? She’s from Emangelynsk City, Russia, and was “discovered” in 2004 on a train ride. In addition to barely containing herself in her Sports Illustrated swimsuit, Irina and her sexpot-iness have also posed for Intimissimi, Lacoste and Guess. As Amelia so succinctly put it, “She’s the kind of chick dudes get boners for.” [Sports Illustrated, NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: You Mean Everyone Can’t Afford To Be A Stay-At-Home Mom?

  • While cutting funding for a Head Start program for disadvantaged preschoolers, elected officials in Frederick County, Maryland, made appallingly ignorant comments about how their own wives took time off of work to stay home with their kids when they were young, so why can’t other moms? [TDB.com]

Let Them Eat Beefcake!

My mom never had a collection of Playgirl magazines. Thank God! The idea that she once got off to Burt Reynolds’ mustachioed mug would be too much for me to handle. But we know Burt, Mark Harmon (who?), and other ’70s and ’80s studs graced the covers of Playgirl during the mag’s hey-day and they’re lovingly collected on a bitchin’ new — mostly-SFW — Tumblr called Let Them Eat Beefcake. As mesmerizing as those cheesy ‘staches are, I love the articles touted on the cover of the 1977 “Special Valentine’s Issue,” like “The 60-Second Period” and “The Boy-Rapist Next Door.” Beefcakes, like cheesy reading, truly never go out of style! (P.S. Do you think, 20 years from now, our daughters will be wondering what we saw in Levi Johnston?) [Let Them Eat Beefcake Tumblr] Keep reading »

10 Valentine’s Day Gifts A Single Girl Can Give Herself

vday for you g1 jpg
Last night, I went to Victoria’s Secret and bought myself a trashy-sexy set of lacy red lingerie. No, I don’t expect anyone’s going to see it tonight besides my cat. I was just treating myself to a Valentine’s Day gift — a little somethin’-somethin’ for Jessica, Party of One. Valentine’s Day might be a holiday created by the greeting card companies, but it doesn’t mean you don’t have an excuse to distract yourself a little bit if you’re single this time of year. (FYI, slide #11 is NSFW.)

Even The Fashion Industry Complains About The Beauty Standards Of The Fashion Industry

You and I aren’t the only ones wondering why “high fashion” fetishizes the gamine, undernourished look of 14-year-old girls fresh OTB from Belarus: recently, two insiders from the heart of the industry itself have vocalized their distaste for the fashion world’s embrace of the skeletal-thin female form. British designer Giles Deacon, who is the creative director of Emanuel Ungaro, and model Erin O’Connor (left, in 2009) are both chiming in with “high fashion” critics like plus-sized model Crystal Renn to say, Enough is enough already.

Girl Talk: My Dad Is My Valentine

This morning, like every morning, I poked my computer “on” and shuffled into the kitchen to pour myself a cup of coffee. Sitting in my favorite mug next to the coffee maker was a package of Reese’s peanut butter hearts. I scampered into the living room to find my dad. “Thank you!” I trilled. “Happy Valentine’s Day!” He just grinned. “I tried to get you a heart-shaped box of chocolates,” he said, “but I think I waited too long because they already had Easter candy out last night.”

My dad does this every year and every year it makes me really happy to be his daughter. Even the years when I’ve been at college, living in an apartment on my own or studying abroad in Europe, Dad has made sure I had a box of chocolates on Valentine’s Day. Yes, it might sound loser-ish, but to me it’s totally sweet: my dad is my Valentine. I don’t mean for this to be creepy, but I am being sincere. My dad as a Valentine has never disappointed.

Rihanna’s Arty Video For Reb’l Fleur Perfume Is Here

Rihanna has a fragrance and I have so many questions. Why does Reb’l Fleur have no “e” in it? What does Reb’l Fleur even mean? How much money did Rihanna spend on this bizarre video that sorta, kinda advertises her new perfume but mostly just showcases how pretty she is? And is it really “fruit-salad scented”? Really?

Diesel’s Blowjob Kneepads, For The Romantic In All Of Us

blowjob kneepads

Here’s a gift I could really use: a Diesel store in India gave away blowjob kneepads with purchases over $150! The packages, which subtly display a woman’s open mouth, read “buy one, get one pearl necklace free.” That’s … just … ew. At least Diesel can’t be accused of not thinking of your comfort, ladies. (And certain gentlemen!) [Copyranter] Keep reading »
