Some things are just not necessary. An almost-lifesize cake replica of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s faces, made from 20 lbs. of marzipan and 10 lbs. of icing, for example. Important question, though: whose face do you cut up first? [The Gloss via The Windsor Knot] Keep reading »
Photoshop is out of control, people. These days, y’all should just assume any model’s thighs are twice as thick as they appear. That’s why I’m loving these completely unretouched ads from the beauty line Make Up For Ever. In fact, these pics have even been certified by a notary! Each of the models is naturally gorgeous and had her makeup professionally applied, of course. But I still love any and all proof that women can look this ah-maz-ing without airbrushing.
Check out another one of Make Up For Ever’s airbrushing-free images, after the jump: Keep reading »
I usually don’t find myself cheering for lawsuits, but this one is an exception: a jilted bride from Chicago is suing her ex-fiancé for the costs of the wedding after he cheated on her at his Las Vegas during his bachelor party and then called the wedding off when he got caught.
Pardon my ’90s expression, but “You go, girl!” Keep reading »
Imelda Marcos would be so disappointed: the average American woman owns 17 pairs of high heels, according to survey of 1,000 women about shoes in ShopSmart magazine. Women bought an average of three pairs each year and while the likes of Imelda and Carrie Bradshaw spend $600 or more on designer heels, the average woman spends $49 on new kicks. Only 31 percent said they spent over $100 on a single pairs of shoes. Keep reading »

WTF, Florida?!?! Residents of Tampa received a mailer about mayoral candidate Rose Ferlita warning them that this deranged harpy is “Unmarried. Unsure. Unelectable.” What kind of freak wouldn’t be married? Someone who is unfit for public office, that’s who! Rose Ferlita “put her political ambitions first and foremost,” the mailer reads, “while her opponent is a dedicated family man with two children. Ferlita is an unmarried woman with a suspect commitment to family values.” Translation: she’s not married because she’s a BIG OLD LESBO. Actually, I don’t know if that’s the rumor about Rose Ferlita and I don’t care. Exorciating an ambitious female candidate because she’s single and childless — qualities few would bat an eyelash about if they were applied to men — is one of the most sexist political attacks I’ve ever seen.

Holy thought police, bat girl! Police in Iowa arrested a pregnant woman in her second trimester last month for telling a nurse she’d been thinking about having an abortion. While in the hospital after falling down a flight of stairs, Christine Taylor, 22, told a nurse about her employment and marital woes; Christine also said she’d considered both abortion and adoption before deciding to carry her pregnancy to full-term. The nurse then got suspicious that Christine had been trying to self-abort by throwing herself down the stairs — Christine was arrested under Iowa’s feticide laws, and the poor woman spent two days in jail.

“You know what I don’t like right now about women in America? I don’t like when they are objectified in ‘The Housewives of Miami‘ and ‘The Housewives of’ … you know? What I resent is when women are objectified. … I just want every woman to know that they can realize their potential — but their potential is not necessarily fake tits.”
