Quickies: Watch “William & Kate”’s Extended Trailer & What Soaps Just Got Cancelled?

  • Lifetime has released the extended trailer for “William & Kate: The Movie” and it looks predictably schmaltzy and AWESOME. I am counting down the days until April 18 when this airs at 9 p.m. (EST). Who else is going to watch? [Us Weekly]
  • Shocker: Jessica Simpson’s boobs get her out of parking tickets. [The Superficial]
  • Apparently one of Courteney Cox and David Arquette’s marital problems was that he was obsessed with having sex with her. [TMZ]
  • The world’s first 3D porn film sold out in theaters across Hong Kong tonight. “3-D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy” is in Cantonese and based on Chinese erotic literature. [Fox 411]

Today’s Lady News: Indiana Removes Breast Cancer BS From Abortion Bill

  • Thank God, an Indiana state Senate committee has removed a provision from an anti-abortion bill that required women seeking abortions be told that terminating a pregnancy increased their risk for breast cancer. A link between abortion and breast cancer is completely medically unproven but continues to be spouted by anti-abortion extremists as fact. [IndyStar.com]
  • A Northern Kentucky University professor has revived the conspiracy theory that Sarah Palin is actually the grandmother of her son, Trig, and essentially bamboozled the American people with the biggest hoax of all time. As much as I love conspiracy theories … who really cares about this one anymore? [Gawker]
  • A woman wearing a blue burka sitting on a trash heap is a controversial new ad campaign by Germany’s International Human Rights campaign. While their point may have been that women in some parts of the world are valued as little as trash, a depiction of a veiled woman as being like garbage is not right, either. [Feministing]

Veiled Muslim Woman Yelled At By Woman Not In Veil, While Eliot Spitzer Moderates

Who would have thought the “Love Guv” would have found himself moderating a feminist debate about the veil? Life sure is strange sometimes. The other night on Eliot Spitzer’s CNN program, Hebah Ahmed, a blogger for Muslim Matters who wears a veil, debated Mona Eltahawy, a Muslim commentator who does not wear a veil, about the “burqa ban” in France that went into effect on Monday.

Boxer Jeans Are The New WTF Underwear For Men

Both boxers and jeans are so comfortable for men. Why not combine the two? A Japanese company has made JeanPants, a pair of boxer-briefs printed to look like denim cutoffs, according to Styleite. Why any guy would want to look like he’s wearing denim cutoffs a la Jessica Simpson in “The Dukes Of Hazzard” is beyond me. If a guy whipped off his Levi’s to reveal denim-esque boxers underneath, I would laugh and laugh.

However, here is the real question: is this sartorial atrocity better or worse than a href=”http://www.thefrisky.com/tag/jeggings”>jeggings? [Japan Trend Shop via Styleite] Keep reading »

Pap Smears At Walgreens?!


The Colbert Report Mon – Thurs 11:30pm / 10:30c
Pap Smears at Walgreens
www.colbertnation.com
Colbert Report Full Episodes Political Humor & Satire Blog Video Archive

Did you know you could get your annual Pap smear at Walgreens? Yes! The stirrups are right over in aisle two next to the Pond’s skin cream and the Bonne Bell lip gloss. And breast exams? Right near the AAA batteries, please.

At least that’s what you might think if you watch “Fox & Friends” and believe every word they say. They were trying to justify the Republicans’ attempts to defund family planning money from Planned Parenthood because, duh, all women’s reproductive health needs can be met at the local Walgreens.

Stephen Colbert did a hilarious bit about this the other night on “The Colbert Report,” which you simply must watch. (Language NSFW, use headphones.) But now a group of feminist activists are planning actions to highlight this ignorance. Yup, you guessed it — they’re asking people to go to Walgreens and ask for a Pap smear. Keep reading »

Quickies: Catherine Zeta-Jones Has Bipolar Disorder & See Karina Smirnoff’s Playboy Cover

  • OK, maybe Britney Spears can’t dance like she used to. So what?! [Popdust]
  • Lord help us, there may be a Kardashian family movie in the works. [PopEater]
  • Kobe Bryant apologized for calling an NBA referee a “f**king fa**ot” during the Knicks game last night, saying “the words expressed do NOT reflect my feelings towards the gay and lesbian communities.” [TMZ]
  • The TSA said they will review their airport screening policies after a six-year-old girl was frisked at the New Orleans airport. INSANE. [AOL News]
  • Americans have a First Amendment right to watch porn at the library! Wait, what? Really? [Tres Sugar]

Today’s Lady News: Tina Fey & Jane Curtain Talk Sexism At “Saturday Night Live”

  • Oprah Winfrey invited the lovely Tina Fey, Jane Curtain, Tracy Morgan, Dana Carvey and Chevy Chase as guests for a show about “Saturday Night Live.” It turns out that John Belushi was a sexist jerk, his former co-star Jane Curtain revealed. “[Belushi] said, ‘Women are just fundamentally not funny,’” Curtain recalled. “He felt as though it was his duty to sabotage pieces that were written by women.” Wow, I never thought an episode of “Oprah” would make me feel stabby. [NYmag.com Vulture]
  • I can’t even begin to describe the stupidity you will witness if you click this link, but I will tell you it involves Glenn Beck, Planned Parenthood, and the word “hookers.” You’ve been warned. [Huffington Post]
  • The American Library Association’s list of the top 10 most challenged books of 2010 is out and nearly all were written by women! Let’s hear it for Lush by Natashas Friend, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, Twilight by Stephenie Meyer, Crank, by Ellen Hopkins, Nickel and Dimed by Barbara Ehrenreich, What My Mother Doesn’t Know, by Sonya Sones, and Revolutionary Voices: A Multicultural Queer Youth Anthology, edited by Amy Sonnie.
