We know when Amelia kicks she bucket, she’s leaving her closetful of J.Crew tops and buckets of nail polish bottles to her pooch, Lucca. But when a millionaire dies, wouldn’t you hope they leave some of their bread to, you know, the family?
Who the hell are these millionaires who die and leave their dogs homes, cars, butlers, maids, millions of bucks, etc.? I know a ton of public school teachers I could introduce them to. Keep reading »
“It’s a Jim Thompson novel about a sociopathic killer who’s a coward! I think the detail that went into the killing of the women is actually showing how weak he is, because he’s preying on the people who loved him the most. I think a lot of people also want everything to be shiny happy people, and they want killing to be a sexy guy with his shirt off blowing guys’ heads off. This just shows how horrifying it is, which is responsible, actually.
— Jessica Alba on the violent spanking and beating scenes in “The Killer Inside Me,” in which her character, a prostitute, is eventually killed by Casey Affleck’s character, a sociopathic cop. You know, I actually agree with Alba on this one: there’s a difference between glorifying violence against women and depicting violence gruesomely and honestly. Withholding judgment on this one until I see the flick myself. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
Perez Hilton is furiously trying to backpedal and say it was fine for him to post an up-skirt photo of 17-year-old Miley Cyrus because she was wearing panties — but ABC is not having it. The station has pulled a rotating banner ad for “The View” from Perez’s blog. A source told MSNBC’s The Scoop blog, “It has to do with the morality of the issue. Miley is a minor, period. There are ethics involved in running an ad on a site that potentially violated the rights of a minor and that is what the conversation is about about a network level.” Will other advertisers follow ABC’s lead? Should they? [MSNBC] Keep reading »

Civil liberties nightmare or a f**king great idea? Police in Queensland, Australia, now have the authority to fine citizens $100 to $300 for committing the “public nuisance” of cussing in public. Queensland’s head of state, Anna Bligh, said to expect a 20 percent rise in public nuisance complaints, based on trial programs in South Brisbane and Townsville. Why are Aussies so concerned about naughty language? They’re not. Apparently, swear words are just a moneymaker. Bligh said that targeting public pottymouths (along with those who pee in public and other acts of disorderly conduct) could generate the government some major bucks. Watch your mouths, Aussies!

How do we feel about corsets? Burlesque performers, like our girl Dita Von Teese, can wear a corset and look damn hot doing it. But on the other end of the spectrum, there’s those frightening women who mush their organs together inside tight corsets, gunning for a six-inch waist. Chicks like that have got some serious ish.
Somewhere in the middle is Megan Fox in “Jonah Hex,” which looks likes it’s set in the Wild West and calls for her to wear an old-timey corset and bustle. Fox recently spoke with InStyle magazine about how the “Jonah Hex” wardrobe department snapped her into corsets to get her waist down to 18 inches, which “would leave these deep grooves, these deep indents from the boning in the corsets, for the whole next day.” Ew, right?

This is one of those stories that you hope is just something from an episode of “30 Rock,” but then you’re, like, Ugh, these people really exist:
Sarah Burge, 50, owns a swingers’ sex party club and is known as the “Human Barbie” for her $600,000-worth of plastic surgery treatments. She’s also the mother of three daughters. Her eldest, Charlotte, 23, dances burlesque; her middle daughter, Hannah, 16, started getting Botox injections last year; and her 7-year-old, Poppy, wears lip gloss, high heels and makeup, and loves pole dancing.
Yep, she’s 7. Keep reading »
