Jen and Brad. Liz Taylor and Richard Burton. Princess Di and Prince Charles. The greatest marriage of our generation is officially split: Heidi Montag has filed for divorce from Spencer Pratt. Like, for serious you guys! Two months ago when Heidi filed for legal separation from her fame-whorish, controlling, and wildly bearded ex, we all thought it was another dumb publicity stunt. But the Human Barbie has actually filed a divorce petition in California, citing irreconcilable differences. The ex-”Hills” stars, who married shortly over a year ago, are seeking an out-of-court settlement—i.e., no court room dramz or tabloid fodder. Heidi’s lawyer told People, “Both parties are amicable with each other and over the possibility of finalizing their divorce.” Hand me a tissue; I’m inconsolable. [People] Keep reading »
Men, are periods wreacking havoc on your lives? Everywhere you turn is there a woman eating a pint of Ben & Jerry’s or unwrapping a Tampax? Does this concern you? You never have to be blindsided again by leaving your man-cave only to confront the terror that is menstruation.

- Shirley Sherrod, a former Agriculture Department employee who is African-American, said she plans to sue Andrew Breitbart, a conservative blogger who posted an edited video online which led to her resignation. The video was of a speech in which Sherrod appeared to be saying that she discriminated against a white farmer who needed her help.

It’s that time again! “Project Runway” season 8 debuts tonight and PopSugar has video-chatted with the new designers. It’s a short video, but there don’t seem to be any obvious annoying cast members. I like the chick who asks herself, “What would Elvis do? And would ZZ Top be proud?” They’re all terribly afraid of judge Nina Garcia, though. Hmm, why would that be? (Kidding.)

“I don’t know who Snooki is.”
Wait, I voted for this man?

In between cute anecdotes about Sasha and Malia and softball questions about Lindsay Lohan’s jail sentence, he fielded questions about Afghanistan, unemployment, racism, and the economy. And yes, the show’s token conservative, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, behaved herself. Keep reading »
