Erin Andrews Talks Stalking On “Good Morning America”

Erin Andrews is a class act — that’s the takeaway from her first special contributor segment for “Good Morning America.” Erin’s six-minute spot explored a subject she is all too familiar with: women being stalked. Michelle was stalked by an ex-boyfriend for two years whose craziness escalated from phone calls saying he missed her to threats to kill her. Sara was stalked after a disagreement with a family member who called her hundreds of times a week for a whole year before law enforcement got involved. And Dawn, like Erin, was stalked by a stranger who preyed on African-American women. Keep reading »

“Real World”‘s Lowest Point Ev-ah: Cops Called Over Toilet Toothbrush Incident

It’s the “Real World” episode we’ve all been waiting for: somebody’s toothbrush is scrubbing the toilet.

If you haven’t been watching, a little background: Preston is the mellow black guy questioning his sexuality, Ryan is the uber-aggressive homophobic white guy who called Preston a “f****t.” (Ryan, by the way, is a hairdresser. Just sayin’.) These idiots are, like, 18 years old so they are handling their differences maturely. Ryan took Preston’s smokes, dropped trou, and rubbed the ciggies in his buttcrack. Meanwhile, Preston scrubbed the toilet with Ryan’s toothbrush … and peed on it. Keep reading »

Levi Johnston Wanted A Reality Show

Least surprising Levi Johnston news ever: upon reuniting with Bristol Palin and declaring their surprise engagement on the cover of US Weekly, the fame whore from Wasilla pushed for a reality show. Bristol said hells no and kicked his Playgirl ass to the curb. (His concern that he’d possibly knocked up his ex-girlfriend Lanesia Garcia surely didn’t help.) “Bristol is heartbroken. She described texting him and getting no answer,” People magazine executive editor Betsy Gleick told “The Early Show.” “Then eventually she said Levi said, ‘Hey do you want to be on a reality show?” Keep reading »

As mayor of New York City, Rudy Giuliani famously fought to keep crime off the streets — but little did he know he raised a budding criminal at home. Yesterday afternoon, employees at a Sephora on the Upper East Side of Manhattan watched — on camera — his daughter Caroline Giuliani, 20, hide $150 worth of beauty products in her jacket and busted her for shoplifting. Cops arrested the ex-presidential candidate’s kid for petty larceny and hauled her away in handcuffs to the local precinct. What did young Caroline Giulinai steal? Dior skin primer, Bliss moisturizer and a hairnet, among other beauty products. Really, Caroline, a hairnet? [New York Daily News]

In the messy world of politics, a Stepford wife smile and freshly scrubbed tots portray a candidate as a loving husband and a doting dad. Unfortunately, all too many politicians’ kids are familiar with the phrase “Officer, do you know who my daddy is?” After the jump, let’s meet five little hellraisers.

Mary-Kate And Ashley Olsen Were “Little Performance Monkeys”

Mary-Kate Olsen blasted her “Full House” childhood in a new interview with Marie Claire, saying she and twin sister Ashley Olsen were “little performance monkeys.” MK, who has scarcely talked to the press since she was publicly connected to the death of her friend Heath Ledger in 2007, told the magazine, “I would never wish my upbringing on anyone … I look at old photos of me, and I don’t feel connected to them at all.” Apparently, the feeling is mutual. Her sister Ashley also told Marie Claire, “I look at Britney and I’m surprised I didn’t end up like her.” (Sorry, Brit.)

Quite sad to think that all those cheesy made-for-VHS movies made them billionaires, but it hasn’t made them happy.

Ann Taylor Caught Photoshopping Skinny Model Even Skinnier

Ann Taylor knows what sells clothes: thin. Yesterday afternoon, Jezebel noticed that an item on AnnTaylor.com was originally depicted by a skinny model in a tank top, but three seconds later, the page re-boots and the skinny model has magically dropped 20 lbs. around her midsection. Some might say the image was airbrushed beyond looking like a proportional human being. But what a bunch of whiners! Seriously, how could that fat cow sell a Chiffon Trim Tank looking that huge? Next you’re going to tell me something crazy like we should have models who are actually the size of the average American woman. [Jezebel.com and AnnTaylor.com] Keep reading »

What The Hell Is Breast-Painting?

Breasts are good for lots of things, like feeding newborns and painting exquisite abstract artwork. A Russian artist named Victoria excels at the latter, dipping her jugglies on a palette of Dick Blick paint and smearing her paint-covered nipples on a canvas. Um, doesn’t breast-painting hurt? Maybe she believes she has to suffer for her art. I’m no Isabella Stewart Gardner, but Victoria’s breast-painting is actually quite good. You can watch the artiste and her large brushes breasts at work here and judge for yourself.

Library Pressured To Remove Book About Gay Teens From Shelves

Do you know what is terrible for teenagers to read about? Homosexuality. They might get ideas! It’s a good thing Glenn Beck’s group, The 9.12 Project, (as in, after 9/11) is on the case. The 9.12 Project has pressured a New Jersey public library into considering removing all copies of Revolutionary Voices: A Multicultural Queer Youth Anthology, a young adult book about gay and lesbian teens, from the shelves.
