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 »
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 »

I’ll be frank: not having a close group of girl friends makes me feel like a failure.
Sometimes not having a close group of friends makes me feel like a failure, but mostly it’s not having a posse of girlfriends, six or eight women to flank me in salmon bridesmaids gowns, that makes me feel like I’ve done something wrong. Aren’t I supposed to have women with whom to start a book club, a knitting circle? Isn’t there supposed to be a core group to call upon for appletinis in our most satin-y, shiniest clothes? Aren’t we supposed to rehash Saturday night’s antics over Sunday brunch?
