“I don’t really like talking about it. That period of time was … it was difficult. He was very sensitive. He didn’t always have a sense of performance in his everyday life. He knew who he was. I think actors very often, they know how to present something, and that’s part of their job. I think he was just really sensitive.”

Call me prissy, but … ew. The painfully hip jewelry designers/bloggers at BleachBlack have proudly created a fetching new nail polish color called “Jizz.” It’s a sheen, pearly white — both “punk and feminine,” says Refinery29. I think I’ll stick with Essie and their polish colors that haven’t been inspired by ejaculation. But if you desperately need “Jizz” on your fingers, it should be available on NeedSupply.com for about $12.95 soon. [Refinery29] Keep reading »
Face-tattooed, neo-Nazi Michelle “Bombshell” McGee has actually said something not completely insane/inane. Stop the presses! PopEater tells us in an interview with the gossip show “Inside Edition,” McGee implored America:
“I want to say the rest of the country, ‘Stop taking it out on the mistresses and start taking it out on the men who are cheating on their wives.’ Why are these men getting off scot-free when the mistresses are considered whore and we’re stepped on and we’re booed and we’re called nasty names?”
Damn straight, girl. That’s called the sexual double standard and it sucks. Keep reading »
Screech does porn, AC Slater hosts Miss America pageants, and Jessie Spano writes self-help books. Yes, Elizabeth Berkley is writing a “self-esteem handbook for teen girls.” Penguin Young Readers Group is expected to publish the 37-year-old’s musings next spring. This one’s certainly a head-scratcher! “Saved By The Bell” went off the air in 1993 — like, when today’s current crop of teens came screaming out from between their moms’ legs. OK, maybe Berkley really is a self-help guru. Still, the whole world has seen her nakeybits in the (not particularly well-received) film “Showgirls,” which may, uh, damage her credibility in some circles.
Besides, I’m not totally sure I’d want to take advice from someone whose most famous flick has set an all-time record for Razzie awards. But what do y’all think? [Yahoo] Keep reading »
Shocking, I know, but I had to break the news some time: Our fabulous funbags are actually biologically designed to feed hungry babies, not just to look tasty in a Body by Victoria C-cup. Alas, some Neanderthals can’t handle such a bombshell about breasts — namely, folks in corporate America who’ll do everything from tweet (and delete!) to kick a nursing mother out of a restaurant at the slightest hint of a snacking infant.
After the jump, two recent breastfeeding incidents that make us think we could all use a Biology 101 refresher course. Keep reading »

“Half of my women want a shoe to make them look a little tarty and the other half are big tarts who want a shoe that looks classy.”

Let’s get this straight: “vajazzling” — blinging out one’s ladyparts with pretty crystals (I guess so a guy doesn’t have to look at your icky pubic hair during sex?) — gets Jennifer Love Hewitt as an enthusiastic ambassador. But the first macho man to undergo a “penazzling” procedure gets his face blurred on the internet, sex victim-style, and he doesn’t even have crystals glued onto his penis?!?! Keep reading »
“‘Pride & Prejudice’ was my first job. I was at boarding school and I met [actor] Julian Fellowes. He came to give a talk. I told him I wanted be an actress and he said, ‘Well, that’s silly. Marry a banker.’”
— Actress Carey Mulligan of “An Education” and, humorously enough, “Wall Street 2.” Hey, I bet Shia LaBeouf hears this all the time. [Wonderland Magazine] Keep reading »
