Kate Upton Responds To Fat-Shaming Blogger

“I’m not going to starve just to be thin. I want to enjoy life and I can’t if I’m not eating and miserable.”

– Here’s Kate Upton in the UK’s Sun saying she doesn’t give an eff that some “thinspiration” bloggers think she’s fat. An anonymous blogger who calls herself Skinny Gurl at a pro-anorexia site called Skinny Gossip had written of Upton: “Huge thighs, NO waist, big fat floppy boobs, terrible body definition — she looks like a squishy brick. Is this what American women are “striving” for now? The lazy, lardy look? Have we really gotten so fat in this country that Kate is the best we can aim for? Sorry, but: eww!”

Last week, in response to the ensuing controversy, Skinny Gurl promised she would remove the Starving Tips Of The Day from her blog and include links to resources on eating disorders and mental illness. [Huffington Post]

A federal judge has blocked parts of a law that would effectively force Missisippi’s one remaining abortion clinic to shut down. However, the judge allowed certain restrictions of the MS legislature’s new abortion-restricitng law to remain. MS had passed a law, which went into effect July 1, that required doctors who perform abortions have admitting privileges at a local hospital.  OB/GYNs at the Jackson Women’s Health Organization have applied for such privileges, but have not yet been granted them. Last week, a federal judge said the doctors need to acquire their admitting privileges but while they do so, they will not be subject to punishment for breaking the law. Keep reading »

The “fun gene” in the Middleton family didn’t all just go to Pippa! Some of it went to Katrina Darling, a pinup/burlesque performer who just so happens to be related to the Duchess Of Cambridge. Okay, so she is a distant cousin — but related nonetheless. Katrina Darling will shake what her mama gave her in an eight-page Playboy spread being published this September. The petite pinup has recently quit her job as a banker to become an exotic dancer full time. Maybe when things get a little boring around the palace, which I imagine is often, Kate Middleton can skip over to her cousin’s haunts to learn some burlesque moves to impress William. (Or Harry.)  [Daily Mail UK] [Photo: YvetteBessels.com]

God bless you, Lifetime. You’re all up there in the baser instincts of my lady lizard brain while simultaneously tugging at my ovaries. Where do you come up with these ideas? Granted, “Prom Queens,” your new reality show debuting August 14, sounds like Bravo’s “Real Housewives” franchise repackaged with higher metabolisms and less expensive lip gloss. But I’m sure you’ll put your special Lifetime spin on it. Keep reading »

Anne Rice On Women And Erotica: “The Whole World Knows Women Are Sensual Beings As Well As Men”

Anne Rice photo

“As a feminist, I’m very much supportive of equal rights for women in all walks of life. And that includes for me the right of every woman to write out her sexual fantasies and to read books filled with sexual fantasies that she enjoys. Men have always enjoyed all kinds of pornography. How can it be wrong for women to have the same right? We’re sexual beings! And fantasy is where we can do the things we can’t do in ordinary life.”
