Today’s Lady News: Ladies Night Isn’t Sexist To Men

  • An appeals court in New York has rejected claims that “ladies nights,” where women are admitted to bars for free or at a discounted price, are illegal. The court said it could not intervene on the self-titled “anti-feminist lawyer”‘s complaint because businesses are allowed to regulate their door prices. [New York Daily News]
  • Meghan McCain, daughter of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), said President Obama “isn’t doing anything for the gay community.” You can watch her clip from a visit on “The O’Reilly Factor” here. [Queerty]
  • Sarah Palin ripped into “impotent, limp and gutless reporters” who use anonymous sources, no doubt referring to the Vanity Fair smear piece from yesterday. But impotent? Is this like when she said Obama doesn’t have any balls? [Politico]

Does This Ad Make You “Feel The Romance of British Royalty”?

All British princesses play the cell in their lingerie, obvi. This Chinese ad for “Diana” underwear isn’t peeing on her grave at all. The company, Jealousy International, wants you to “feel the romance of British royalty.” I know I do. Do you? [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »

Kelly Osbourne Makes An Incredibly Deep Statement About Communism After Pussycat Dolls Concert

Quotable: Jerry Lewis Says He Would “Smack Lindsay In The Mouth” & Give Her A Spanking

“I would smack [Lindsay Lohan] in the mouth if I saw her … I would say, ‘You deserve this and nothing else – whack!’ And then if she’s not satisfied, I’d put her over my knee and spank her. The same thing with Paris Hilton — those children are begging for help. What they’re doing is saying…‘Can you please help me?’ When people who have celebrity give nothing in return, they need a spanking and a reprimand.”

— Jerry Lewis to “Inside Edition.” No, that’s not paternalistic at all. Joking about hitting a woman in the mouth and then giving her spankings? I’m floored he thinks this is humorous. (Besides the point, the words “spanking” and “Lindsay Lohan” could be so much sexier.) What an a**hole. [Dlisted via "Inside Edition"] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Politician Shows His Junk To Woman After Offering A Ride Home From Work

  • A local politician in Platte City, Missouri, has been charged with sexual misconduct after he allegedly drove a woman home from her job at the grocery store, unzipped his pants, asked her, “would this satisfy you?”, if she was being pleased sexually at home and to touch her vagina. According to a county prosecutor, the woman told Charles Cook, “I would appreciate it if you would pull up your pants. I don’t want to have sex with you. I don’t want to do anything with you. I just want to get home.” Cook allegedly then pulled up his pants and took her home. Who knew “Can I have a ride home?” was a sexual come-on? [KCTV5]
  • New York’s governor signed legislation yesterday to guarantee labor rights for domestic workers — who in the NYC area tend to be women, especially immigrants and women of color — including overtime pay and paid time-off. It is the first such law in the nation. [New York Post]

Levi’s New Curve ID Jeans Proving To Be Controversial

Levi’s is selling new Curve ID jeans in three different versions: a “slight curve,” a “demi curve,” and a “bold curve.” The sizes in the various versions basically range from 2 to 14 (although I’m aware sizes are completely and non-sensically different from company to company.) The tag line for the ad campaign is “All asses are not created equal.” The models are three light-skinned women who appear to be Caucasian. Although “curviness” is relative, none of them are curvy in the way, say, J.Lo, Beyoncé, or Crystal Renn is curvy.

To some it’s just an ad campaign for “curvy” jeans. To others, it’s racist and sexist advertising. Keep reading »

Vanity Fair Accuses Sarah Palin Of Relying On A “Push-Up Bra” To Get What She Wants

Vanity Fair has a new smear piece about Sarah Palin and thankfully this one was not dictated by Levi Johnston. According to this latest hit job, Alaska’s most famous pitbull in lipstick offered to get Bristol Palin and Levi married “if it would be good for the campaign,” threatens her employees, and is prone to ‘F-word’-filled arguments with her husband, Todd. My personal favorite part of the piece is where Levi extends a private apology to the Palins and the hockey mom asks him if he’s wearing “a wire” and if she is being recorded. (He was not.) That public apology that Levi issued? Allegedly, it was written by Todd Palin himself. Levi, through his lawyer, told Vanity Fair, “I had nothing to do with putting that statement together.”

But that’s not all … Keep reading »

Quickies: Ivanka Trump To Guest Star On “Gossip Girl” & No Naked Julianne Moore In Venice

Today’s Lady News: What Meghan McCain Thinks Of Sarah Palin

  • Meghan McCain’s new book, Dirty Sexy Politics, is out today. Sen. John McCain’s daughter speaks to “Good Morning America” about being a young Republican woman and opens up for the first time about Sarah Palin. “I respect [Palin] as a feminist, as a Republican feminist,” Meghan says. Meghan also talks about how when Bristol Palin’s pregnancy came to light, she felt that the campaign ran the risk of glamorizing teen pregnancy. “I just think the pro-abstinence campaign isn’t necessarily the most effective one,” McCain says. [Politics Daily]
  • The model Bar Refaeli — or someone pretending to be Bar Refaeli — tweeted on Sunday and Monday about starving models and plastic surgery, but her agency ONE Management claims she has neither a Twitter nor a Tumblr blog and “these statements are made by imposters.” On Sunday she allegedly tweeted, “Seriously plastic surgery is not helping your impact on young women or your looks! Some people are addicted to drugs and others are addicted to alcohol. Me? I’m addicted to pomegranate juice.” On Monday, Refaeli allegedly tweeted: “I get so sad when I see 15 year old pale extremely skinny models at the agency looking all shaky and hungry … when will it end?” The tweets were linked to her official Tumblr account. As of right now, the Twitter feed has since been changed to be protected and the page for the Tumblr has disappeared. [Huffington Post]
