Snooki Whips Her Pouf Back And Forth

I promise this video will be the dumbest 46 seconds of your life: Snooki whips her pouf to Willow Smith‘s ditty, “Whip My Hair.” Wait, we thought Snooks nixed the pouf to “look more mature”? [YouTube] Keep reading »

“Mad Men”‘s Props Department Spoiled The Surprise For Jessica Paré

“[The ring is] beautiful, and it’s real diamonds. Like 1.5 karats or something. The funny story about that is before I’d read the script, props had to measure me for a ring. So she came in and was, like, ‘I don’t know how to do this without giving anything away, but we still have to do it.’ I didn’t want to think about what it might mean. Until I read the script, I wasn’t believing anything.”

— One of our Celebs To Watch, Jessica Paré, might say she was just as surprised as you were that Don Draper proposed to his secretary, Megan. (Um, spoiler alert?) But the truth is that the “Mad Men” props department spilled the beans when they came by to measure her ring finger. [AMCtv.com] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Hillary Clinton Posts An “It Gets Better” Video

  • Secretary of State Hillary Clinton filmed an “It Gets Better” video in light of recent suicides by LGBT teens. Telling gay young adults “it gets better” might pack more of a punch if she actually supported gay marriage. But the sentiment, albeit hypocritical, is appreciated. [YouTube]
  • Sorry, European ladies, no additional maternity leave for you. Britain is trying to block new European Union laws that would give women more maternity-related benefits. The European Parliament would like to increase paid maternity leave from 14 to 20 weeks, but U.K. pols say it will hurt small businesses and cause employers to not hire pregnant women or women of childbearing age. [Telegraph UK]
  • Two cartoons published in the University of Connecticut’s student newspaper are under fire for being offensive and, frankly, unfunny. One shows a man tossing a diamond ring into a bedroom while a desperate-looking woman chases after it, implying a woman will do anything to get married. And the other says, “Forget sugar and spice and everything nice. Try crabs, scabs and everything viral. That’s what girls are really made of.” Ha ha? [CTnow.com]

Sarah Palin Meets A Real Mama Grizzly On “Sarah Palin’s Alaska”

Mama grizzlies stick together. While Sarah Palin films her TLC reality show, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” with Todd, Piper and her niece, McKinley, a real-life mama bear and her cubs emerge from the woods to catch salmon. But then another bear — clearly a Democrat — comes along and mama bear lays a fuzzy smackdown. “I love watching these mama bears,” Sarah says. “What I see in that is what a mom would do, too. Anything and everything, laying down her life for her kids.”

Next on “Sarah Palin’s Alaska”? On a visit to the Wasilla dog pound, Sarah is charmed by an actual pitbull in lipstick. [Mediaite] Keep reading »

Happy Pinktober, I Mean, October!

Pinktober — I mean, October — has been taken over as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a worthy cause that’s opportunistically hijacked to promote everything for 31 days straight. Why, just this morning I received a press release from HerCampus.com about essays that six women wrote about their bras sizes “in honor” of Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Sorry, what does an essay about your 36DD tatas have to do with “honoring” breast cancer again? I’m not the only one skeptical of consumer pink-washing during “Pinktober” … Keep reading »

“Black Marriage Negotiations” Video Perpetuates Stereotypes About Black Women

Want a low-budget way to draw attention to your website with minimal effort on your part? It’s easy — be wildly offensive. A website called PhilosoG’s is behind this “Black Marriage Negotiations” video that slaps down black women and tells ‘em they wouldn’t be single if they weren’t so damn difficult. Keep reading »

It’s Time To Talk About Meghan McCain’s Breasts Again!

There are plenty of things to say about golden girl Meghan McCain, 26, who has parlayed being John McCain‘s daughter into a full-time job: She writes a column for The Daily Beast, has written a new book called Dirty Sexy Politics, and has a gig on ABC’s “This Week.” After she called Delaware senatorial candidate Christine O’Donnell a “nutjob” this Sunday on “This Week,” Meghan provoked the ire of more hard-line Republicans and their cohorts.

Did they go after her bad manners for calling a public figure a nutjob? Did they go after her family connections? No, they took sexist potshots at her big boobs. Keep reading »

Judge Won’t Stop Tila Tequila Sex Tape, Claiming “Tila Exploits Her Sexuality”

I never thought I’d see the day when Tila Tequila wouldn’t want a sex tape of herself released. She’s turning over a new leaf, I guess? Or maybe she’s just found another way to keep herself in the news? Last week, Tila sought a restraining order to prevent the release of yet another sex tape, which was filmed seven years ago during a trip with her then-boyfriend. But the judge said Tila’s lawyer hadn’t made a good enough case to warrant a restraining order on the tapes.

Something else went down, though, which was really not cool. Keep reading »
