Alleged Killer Joran Van Der Sloot Says He’s Getting Marriage Proposals

Who wants to marry an accused serial killer? Joran van der Sloot, 22, who has been charged with killing a young Peruvian woman in her hotel room, told De Telegraaf newspaper that he has received several marriage proposals. “One of them even wants me to get her pregnant,” he said. Ladies, really, get some standards!

Granted, van der Sloot is as reliable as a ripped condom: he has admitted, and then retracted, confessions linking him to the 2005 disappearance of Natalee Holloway, a teenager on vacation in Aruba. Van der Sloot also told police he killed Stephany Flores, 21, but later retracted his confession. But I guess he is rather attractive in that probably-a-murderer kind of way? I’m kidding.

Frisky Q & A: Nikky Blonsky On Her New Show “Huge,” Plus-Size Actresses & Zac Efron

Missing Nikki Blonsky from your life after the 2007 remake of “Hairspray”? Have no fear, she’s back again: not in a John Waters musical this time, but on “Huge,” a new TV series about plus-size teens at a weight loss camp.

“Huge” stars Blonsky, 21, as a girl sent to the camp by parents who want her to drop some pounds, which is not in her plans at all. Blonsky stars alongside Hayley Hasselhoff — yes, The Hoff’s daughter — who is totally gung-ho about losing weight because she’s convinced her life will be awesome if she’s skinny and hot. Most of the cast memebrs are plus-size actors and actresses. “I don’t think there’s ever been a full cast of plus size people before,” says Blonsky.

You better believe I’ll be parked in front of the boob tube when “Huge” debuts on Monday, June 28th on ABC Family at 9 p.m. EST. After the jump, Nikki Blonsky talks about being a plus-size actress, her dream to sing on “Glee,” and her pal, Zac Efron. Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: American Apparel Doesn’t Hire Based On Looks, Says Founder

  • Dov Charney, embattled American Apparel CEO, wants you to know the condemning internal emails and screen grabs of the company’s intranet are not “evidence” that they hire based on looks. “Photographing people head to toe is the right thing to do if you want to see how people present themselves to customers,” Charney defended himself. “It’s not for a beauty pageant like Miss America where we’re looking at someone’s breast size. We want to see their style.” Hmm, that doesn’t sound so nefarious. We’re not sure we believe him, though. [Signature9.com]
  • Constance McMillen, 18, the lesbian teenager who was told by her high school that she was not allowed to bring her girlfriend to prom, will visit the White House tomorrow. Constance will be a guest at a reception to honor lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender citizens. Later this week, she will march in New York City’s gay pride parade. [USA Today]

Quotable: Julianne Moore’s Sex Scenes Get An R-Rating

“It seems crazy. I have less of an issue with [sex onscreen] than with things exploding. Sex is OK, everybody does it. Most of us don’t throw bombs.”

Julianne Moore on how sex scenes were trimmed in her new movie, “The Kids Are All Right,” so it could get an R-rating. In the flick, Moore plays the lesbian partner of Annette Bening. [AfterEllen.com] Keep reading »

“Jersey Shore,” Season Two: Now With Less Offensive Italian Stereotypes

Before “Jersey Shore” appeared, calling someone a “guido” was offensive. Like, you did not do that unless you were cruising for an ass-kicking. Then there was this bizarre post-”Jersey Shore” era where you heard words like “guido” and “guidette” more on MTV than “boobs” or “oh my God, Heidi, you have to break up with Spencer!”

Not anymore, says Andre DiMino, head of UNICO, an Italian-American pride group. Keep reading »

Oops, He Did It Again: Perez Hilton Tweets Photo #2 Of Miley Cyrus’s Crotch

A new week, a new Miley Cyrus crotch photo: that’s the world of Perez Hilton! The gossip blogger tweeted a photo of Miley performing yesterday at the 2010 MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto where a few inches of her inner thigh can be seen through above the crotch-fabric on her leotard. The photo isn’t scandalous in the least bit and you’ll feel dumb wasting five seconds of your life to look at it.

SHE HAS A VAGINA, PEREZ. Seriously, get over it! Keep reading »

Will “Mad Men”‘s Season 4 Be As Boring As Its Poster?

If you had never watched “Mad Men” before, the poster for season four wouldn’t make it look like a very interesting show. Man stands in an empty office, staring out a window, with only a telephone? Bor-ing. I far preferred the symbolism in season three’s poster: a tense Don Draper sitting in his office with water swiftly rising up above his ankles. [EW.com] Keep reading »

My Top 10 “WTF Was I Thinking?” Clothing Purchases

I love shopping, which is a shame because I’ve been a shopping idiot for most of my life. I have lots of clothes, shoes, bags, accessories and jewelry. Until recently, though, I was one of those people who never owned any stockings or white cotton T-shirts — yet I had an emerald-colored cocktail dress that matches nothing else in my closet. In the past couple of years, I’ve gotten my closet under control. It’s not more boring, mind you, but I’m at least sticking with a color scheme (navy blue, gold, white, and burgundy) and making sure I have enough basics for layering and matching. Buying plain old cotton shirts isn’t as fun as buying, say, H&M’s bright red bolero from their Garden Collection. But such is life, I guess?

Alas, there’s still more than a few pieces back in the ol’ closet that I’m not sure quite what I was thinking when I bought them. After the jump, allow me to introduce you to the hats, clogs and jackets that don’t match with anything Keep reading »

Who Wants Kourtney Kardashian To Wax Their Bikini Line?

In this clip from “Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami,” Khloe is “freaking out” because her husband, Lamar Odom, has “never seen” her lady bits without a bikini wax. The horrors! Luckily Kourtney is down for waxing her sister’s bikini line so as not to offend Lamar’s delicate eyes. That’s sisterhood for you. I think? [Styleite] Keep reading »

Kim Kardashian Loves Big Boobs As Long As They’re Not Breastfeeding

Kim Kardashian generously shares her T&A with the world. But when it comes to a mother breast feeding her baby in public? Kim says, “EWW.”

On Saturday, the reality star tweeted that a woman sitting next to her at lunch was breastfeeding with no cover-up and then put the baby on the table to change its dirty diaper. She later tweeted the mom “had her boobs out” and her sister Kourtney breast feeds, but at least “covers herself” and does not have her “boobs exposed.” Because if there’s one thing Kardashian sisters stand for, it’s modesty!

After the jump, see Kim’s backpedaling on Twitter: Keep reading »
