“What Would You Do?” Sees How Strangers React To An Abusive Relationship

Warning: this clip from a new ABC TV show called “What Would You Do?” is hard to watch, even though I know the “abusive boyfriend” and the “abused girlfriend” are only actors.

On four different occasions, “What Would You Do?” filmed diners at a restaurant watching two “couples” — one white, one black — sit down at a table when the “girlfriend” has obviously just been beat up. In both cases the “girlfriend,” who has cuts on her face and bruises on her arms, is terrified of her “boyfriend” and tells him to stop making a scene in public. Of course, he does not stop making a scene at all and only escalates his anger in front of all the other diners.

Good Samaritan strangers step in to help these abused “girlfriends.” Except when they are dressed provocatively, that is. Keep reading »

Quotable: Will.i.am Is A Boob Man

Lindsay Lohan’s Sentencing: Drinking Ban, Alcohol Bracelet, Random Drug Testing

Party time’s over, Lindz! Days after Lindsay Lohan missed her court appearance while she partied in Cannes replaced her lost passport, today she faced a Los Angeles Superior Court judge for a sentencing smackdown: a drinking ban, an alcohol bracelet and random weekly drug testing. Lohan also must attend all of her alcohol counseling sessions unless they interfere with a random drug test. All this and she’s not only out $100,000 for the bond posted for her arrest after missing last Thursday’s court appearance, but her creep-o father, Michael Lohan, attended today’s hearing (although he was mercifully not allowed to speak). Bummer, dude. At least her attorney says “they think they know” who “stole” her passport. So there’s some good news.

Lohan also took some out of her busy schedule to talk with Hollywood.tv about those her passport woes, partying rumors, her felonious father and those alleged coke photos. Her explanation: “I was just taking a picture with a fan!” Still, I feel kinda bad for Lindsay. Girlfriend looks hella stressed. [CNN] Keep reading »

Kim Kardashian’s Dictionary Must Have A Different Definition Of “Skinny”

A taut-stomached, bikini-clad Kim Kardashian will “never be one of those skinny girls” — wha-wha-what? I know she’s got typically un-Hollywood-esque curves and all, but damn, if that’s still not a skinny figure, what is? [Shape] Keep reading »

Journalist Discovers Conclusively That Lady Gaga Doesn’t Have A Penis

Breaking news: Lady Gaga does not — repeat, DOES NOT — have a penis. After a night out at a Berlin sex party (where else?), U.K. journalist Caitlin Moran snuck a peek while Gaga peed through her fishnets (?!?!) at 3 a.m. in a VIP toilet and solved the mystery that even Oprah couldn’t put to death:

For the first year of her career, massive internet rumours claimed that Gaga was, in fact, a man — a rumour so strong that Oprah had to question her about it, when Gaga appeared on her show. Perhaps uniquely among all the journalists in the world, I can now factually confirm that Lady Gaga does not have a penis.

There you have it. And still Megan Fox is the one who gets dumped on for saying ever-more ridiculous statements about herself to get attention. [Times Of London UK] Keep reading »

Liza Minnelli Singing “Single Ladies” In “Sex and The City 2″ Is Heinous. Heinous!

Cover your ears, children: here’s the audio of Liza Minnelli performing Beyoncé‘s song “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)” in “Sex and The City 2.” Damnnnn, somebody better get fired over this! It sounds like klezmer. I’m sorry, but I’d rather watch those little girls dressed like hoochies do the “Single Ladies” dance on YouTube for a million years than listen to this song again. [Vanity Fair] Keep reading »

Patricia Field, the lovably wackadoodle clothing stylist for “Sex & The City 2,” prepares to get dressed the way most people prepare to get laid! [New York Times] Keep reading »

JetBlue Pilot Allegedly Threatened To Crash His Plane After Fight With Girlfriend

Massachusetts police took a gun from a JetBlue pilot at Logan Airport after he allegedly fought with his girlfriend and then told a friend he was was going to kill himself in a “spectacular fashion.” Eeek! But it gets worse: Boston’s local WBZ News Radio also reported that the pilot, whose name is being kept anonymous, emailed his girlfriend and threatened to crash an airplane. JetBlue, however, has called the plane crash threat “vicious rumor and speculation.”

Today’s Lady News: Kansas City Chiefs Player Says The Team “Imported” Women To Hotel Rooms

  • In an upcoming issue of ESPN The Magazine, Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe reveals a woman was stashed in every hotel room at a game in San Diego in 2007. “Some of my teammates had it set up so there was a girl in every room,” Bowe said. “The older guys get on MySpace and Facebook a week before we go to a city; when a pretty one writes back, they arrange to fly her in three or four days in advance. They call it ‘importing.’” Ick! Fellow player Jimmy Wilkinson has called Bowe’s comments “not true” and says he is making his married teammates look bad. [Kansas City Star]
  • A so-called “crisis pregnancy center” in Silver Springs, Maryland, is suing Montgomery County, Maryland, over a new law that would require it to post a disclaimer clarifying that it does not provide abortions, offer referrals to abortion clinics, and does not have a licensed medical professional on staff. Politicians enacted the law based on the belief that “crisis pregnancy centers” — which often pop up near legitimate abortion clinics — were intentionally misleading women to dissuade them from ending a pregnancy. The lawsuit filed on Wednesday by Centro Tepeyac Women’s Center, however, says the new law restricts their freedom of speech. [Washington Post]
