Let’s talk about your taste in pornography. Is it highbrow enough? Pinkies up, chaps!
Philosopher and How Proust Can Change Your Life author Alain de Botton is deeply concerned about this issue. So he plans to take one for the team and meet with “leaders in porn and the arts,” according to the UK’s Telegraph newspaper, “to bring about a better kind of pornography.”
I didn’t realize there could be better and worse pornography, so long as it’s all legal, consensual and no one is wearing frosted lipstick. But the esteemed philosopher disagrees. Keep reading »
National treasure Judge Judy hit up “The View” this morning. I barely recognized her when she’s not screaming at someone! But as always, J.J. spits the truth.
The ladies asked Judy what her thoughts were on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”‘ Brandi Glanville, who made headlines this week [second to last item] for saying that seeing her ex-husband’s new wife LeAnn Rimes holding Glanville’s children made her feel violently angry. Judge Judy very politely suggests that everyone STFU and grow up. “You have to love the child more than you hate each other,” she advised, before adding later, “Only mature people should have children,” to audience applause. And if Judge Judy had to issue a license to have children? She would.
Eeek. Anyone else a little afraid they would not pass muster?
As if the “mommy wars” need even more ammunition to make women feel bad about themselves: a new Gallup poll found that stay-at-home-moms were more likely to be unhappy than working mothers.
Gallup surveyed nearly 61,000 women between the ages of 18 to 64 who had at least one child under the age of 18. A quarter of SATMs said they felt a lot of sadness “yesterday” and one-fifth said they felt anger, compared with only 16 percent and 14 percent of working mothers, respectively. Gallup said SAHMs were more slightly more likely to say they felt stressed “yesterday” than working moms (50 percent to 48 percent) and more SAHMs said they had been diagnosed with depression as well (28 percent to 17 percent).
What does it all mean? Eh, probably nothing.

Las Vegas is the land of celebrity second acts. Some of them are seedier than others, like, say, taking your clothes off for drunk, howling bachelorettes. Joey Lawrence is the latest shameless celeb to add “stripper” to his resume: the 36-year-old will be joining the all-male stripper crew at Chippendales for a three-week engagement this June. Whoooooa!, as his “Blossom” alter ego might say. Let’s dial back to 1996 when I really would have cared what Joey was packing down below his Chippendales bow tie. [TMZ]
We know all about the ladies of Hollywood who’ve swung around a pole, whether for a role, for exercise, or for rent money. But Joey Lawrence is just one of many male celebs who have worked as strippers, too! Let’s ogle them, shall we? Keep reading »
