Diane Von Furstenberg Hates “The Real Housewives”

“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.”

Diane von Furstenberg wants you to reach for the stars, ladies. You too can marry a Belgian prince and design a crazy popular wrap dress and then marry a possibly-gay billionaire. Think big! [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

Nesting: I’m Doing This Decorating Thing Backwards

Home Decorating On A Budget

Decorate a cute place even if you're a broke-ass mofo. Read More »

Decorating my soon-to-be new bedroom in my new “single again!” apartment has been some of the most fun I’ve had in months. (Boy, have I needed it.) These days instead of whittling away the working hours clicking around Bluefly, I’m all over Crate and Barrel, Pier 1, and the W Hotel store websites.

Interior design is a new interest of mine, but it’s mostly confined to Apartment Therapy lust. When it comes to actually decorating, I’m about as bamboozled as I am by parallel parking and trigonometry. Keep reading »

“I’m definitely having more sex than the average man. Yes, two or three women a night, trust me. The other day I slept with two women — not at the same time — because I was at home and they missed me. But you know, these are my friends; we missed each other. So I just want to give joy and good tidings, that’s what it’s all about.”

Cee Lo Green brags about how much nookie he’s getting from friends-with-benefits these days. The title of his album, The Lady Killer, is no joke, y’all!

After the jump, Cee Lo on whether the ladies find him more attractive now that he’s a bajillionaire… Keep reading »

Guinness Beer Commercials Teaches Men How To Hug Without Looking Gay


Guinness beer fans the flames of homophobia with its new St. Patrick’s Day commercial with a lesson on how men can hug other men without looking … gay. (Because arching your butt backwards in an A-frame hug doesn’t draw more attention to it at all!) I know this commercial is a “joke” as far as 12-year-old-boy-humor is concerned. Alas, giving men a hard time for showing affection because they may look gay is neither funny nor original.

I mean, really: The lessons for men about maleness in this commercial are about as subtle as a piece of poster board that simply says “Lite beer = fa**ot.” Hey, Guinness, don’t steal that. [Queerty] Keep reading »

Bitchtastic UCLA Student Schools Asians On “American Library Manners”

What's wrong with this shirt from Urban Outfitters? Read More »


This is a joke, right? A lovely UCLA student — identified by The Daily What as poli-sci undergrad Alexandra Wallace — took to the Intertubes to bitch about Asians. (You know, because they’re a monolithic group.) According to Alexandra, UCLA accepts “hordes of Asians” every year — which is fine — who don’t have “American manners” when it comes to talking on the phone in the library. Entitlement! Obliviousness! Hedging her racist comments with “you guys know I’m not really politically correct”! This woman’s career in politics is golden.

After the jump, one of those gabby Asians responds to Alexandra with his own video about white girls in the library: Keep reading »
