  • VH1 has pulled the plug on the reality TV show “Ev and Ocho” after Chad “Ochocinqo” Johnson was arrested for domestic violence this weekend after he allegedly headbutted his wife Evelyn Lozada. The NFL star has also been kicked off the Miami Dolphins over the alleged incident. [Uptown Magazine, Socialite Life]
  • Bobbi Kristina Brown, the late Whitney Houston’s daughter, has posted another pic of herself kissing her “adopted brother” Nick Gordon on the lips. Grandma Cissy Houston has complained in the past that the two are being “incestuous” (although in fairness, they are not biologically related!). [Celebrity Cafe]
  • Marilyn Manson was apparently very apologetic to parents of small children about writing naughty words on his face in the airport as a message to paparazzi. Or he could just, you know, not write “FUCK” on his face. [Boing Boing]

Two women made history at the 2012 Olympics for being the first-ever female Saudi Arabians to compete in the Games.

But one of those young women, Wojdan Shakerkai, who competed in judo (and lost), has paid dearly for being a trailblazer: the 16-year-old girl has been lambasted as a “prostitute” by misogynists back home. Keep reading »

Touched For The Very First Time

18 Again: it’s not a sequel to the Zac Efron romantic comedy “17 Again.” It’s a vaginal tightening gel and lubricant available in India. In this commercial set in a family’s home, a woman dances with her lover to a song that sounds likes Madonna’s “Like A Virgin” while hinting at him that she is — wink wink nudge nudge — “18 again” down there.

When I was in college, I was obsessed with this one guy. OB-SESSED.  He had a girlfriend, but he was just so dreamy, and I had concocted this fantasy that he would break up with her and be with me.  (Shut up. I was 18.)  I was messed up in the head over this fool for the longest time, convinced he would fall in love with me if he just knew me well enough.

That did not happen.

What did happen was that I used to walk past the retail store where he worked just so I could catch a momentary glimpse of him and then scuttle away like a cockroach. My friends yelled at me for doing this. I was in a miserable and unhealthy place in my life: many, many years away from getting control of the anxiety and depression that shredded up my late teens and early 20s.
