Two weeks ago, Belvedere Vodka tweeted an ad depicting a man pulling a surprised, open-mouthed woman down onto his lap. The headline read: “Unlike some people, Belvedere always goes down smoothly.” Decent people got the skeevies and called the ad out as rapey. Belvedere quickly tweeted that they were sorry “if any of our fans were offended” — but not sorry for the actual creepy ad — and made a donation to the Rape And Incest National Network.

Now, Alicyn Packard, the actress who starred in a comedy sketch from which Belvedere appropriated her image, is suing its parent company Moet Hennesey. Packard’s lawsuit claims emotional distress from appearing in such a reviled ad and claims Belvedere did not have permission to use her image (misappropriation of likeness). The company allegedly ganked her image from a comedy video made by her company, Strickly Viral Productions. “To be affiliated with an ad that’s so offensive to so many has just been horrible,” she told KTLA.

Urban Outfitters shower curtain photo

I can’t be the only one whose bathroom looks like an episode of “Hoarders: Beauty Product Edition.” But this stowaway shower curtain from Urban Outfitters features four mesh pockets for all my crap-hound needs: the pockets are big enough for various and sundry makeup, brushes, and hell, even a roll of toilet paper if you’re so inclined. Plus, the curtain is washable cotton, so if any of the gooey goodies explode, it’ll be easy to clean. Rub-a-dub-dub, girl! [$44, Urban Outfitters]

UPDATE, 1:40p.m.: Mother Jones is reporting the clinic is “temporarily closed” and the FBI has joined an investigation into the bombing. [Mother Jones]

An explosive blew up at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Grand Chute, Wisconsin last night at around 7:30 p.m. Police say a homemade bomb was placed on a windowsill outside the Appleton North Health Clinic. It started a fire that burned itself out but still caused damage to the building. No one was hurt.

Intimidation tactics like this are nothing short of domestic terrorism, intent on scaring the employees of abortion clinics from doing their jobs. Thank you to the women and men who work at these clinics and put themselves at risk for clinic violence every day.

  • Sarah Palin will co-host “The Today Show” on Tuesday in what I think we can all agree is a brazen ploy for ratings. Katie Couric will be co-hosting “Good Morning America” on the same day. Well played, “Today,” well played. [Dlisted]
  • Alec Baldwin is engaged to his 28-year-old yoga instructor girlfriend, Hilaria Thomas. Mazel tov! [Huffington Post]
  • Today in Casting Decisions We Don’t Approve Of: Ashton Kutcher will play Apple’s co-founder Steve Jobs in an indie flick, “Jobs.” [Variety]
  • On April Fools Day, Gwyneth Paltrow proved she does have a sense of humor about GOOP after all. [Evil Beet Gossip
  • Naked Norwegian dudes are promoting tourism … or public humping. It’s hard to say. (NSFW) [Queerty]
  • Researchers are developing a Facebook app that could tell you if one of your friends has an STI — presumably so you can better protect yourself from infection. Hmm, that still sounds like a major violation of privacy. [Nerve] Keep reading »

The White House knows that the public looooooves it when Barack Obama talks about his children — and we should, those kids are adorable — so it doesn’t surprise me his campaign released a video of POTUS recounting this one time he tried to do Malia’s hair when she was four. And he really sucked at it. Eh, the president can’t be good at everything. [Buzzfeed

I’ve found an easy-peasy smoky eye in a tube. Yeah, a tube. It’s not an eyeshadow — it’s a cream. No brushes required. No large palettes to carry around. No loose powder flaking on the tops of my cheeks. BECCA’s Eye Tint créme is the easiest smoky eye I’ve ever done.
