8 Wedding Gift Ideas For Bristol Palin And Levi Johnston

So. Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston are engaged. Well, duh, Bristol ain’t no fool! Girlfriend knows Levi is a hot hunk of man meat and methinks that “abstinence pledge” kick she was on wasn’t a lick of fun. Even though I think it’s highly questionable the pair thinks they can happily reunite after so much public acrimony in the past, at least they’re trying to make it work for baby Tripp, right? … Right?

Ah, well. We suspect we won’t be invited to the impending nuptials — sure to be frosty in more ways than one! — but it would only be polite to send a gift. After the jump, some wedding gift suggestions for Bristol and Levi. Keep reading »

Mel Gibson’s Screaming Rant At Ex #4: Profanity By The Numbers

Memo to future girlfriends of Mel Gibson: he wants a blowjob before the Jacuzzi, got it?

Another day, another snippet of an alleged abusive screaming phone call from Mel to his ex/baby mama, Oksana Grigorieva. Having listened to all of Mel’s psychotic screaming and creepy panting, I can say this one is the scariest.

After the jump, Mel’s profanity and blowjob requirements, tallied up. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: My Mom Wants Me To Lose Weight

It had been a bleak year. I started taking anti-depressants and was slowly putting on weight, as the side effects had warned. This alone was not a problem: guys always told me I was a little too skinny and that I had a bony butt, so I actually enjoyed having a juicy badonkadonk for the first time in my life. But as I packed on more pounds on my slender frame, my clothes stopped fitting. J.Crew skinny jeans? Couldn’t wear ‘em anymore. Vintage mini-dress? So tight it ripped. Silk blouse? My upper arms no longer fit without gnarly pit stains. I had to chuck tons of panties that now squeezed uncomfortably around my new butt. Not surprisingly, I started to get a little neurotic (and vain) and seriously considered ditching my happy pills in the hopes that I’d get my zippy ol’ metabolism back.

Then my 26th birthday arrived. My boyfriend was out of town on a business trip and left a birthday present waiting for me on our bed. I ripped the paper off and saw a box from one of New York City’s fanciest lingerie stores: inside was an adorable black and pink bra and panties set from Betsey Johnson. He did his sizing-homework in advance: the panties fit my rotund butt, the bra did not pinch my shoulders. And something immediately clicked: I am attractive no matter what size I wear. Sexy lingerie comes in all sizes! I realized I didn’t have to fit into my existing clothes to be sexy; I could still look sexy in sizes that fit me properly.

These days, I’m OK with my weight. But there’s one person who’s not — my mom. Keep reading »

If there’s one thing I like more than a boobs story, it’s a deadly boobs story. Brazilian model Sheyla Hershey, 30, of Houston, Texas, is in possession of the world’s biggest breasts, measuring in at a whopping 38KKK. Last year she told the Houston station KRIV, “I want to look better each day, every day. Everybody’s got a dream inside, you know? And it’s good when you can make your dream come true.” Keep reading »

Michelle Duggar Of “19 Kids And Counting” Wins Mother Of The Year Award

Oh, dear. TLC’s resident brood sow “19 Kids and Counting” star Michelle Duggar has received a “Mother of the Year Award.” Perhaps she is a fine mother to her children, but she is most famous for having many of them — which is not in-and-of-itself a marker of good parenthood at all. It’s silly to equate the idea of being a “good mother” with a having good child-bearing hips. (I’m not saying having lots of kids automatically makes you a bad mom — I’m one of five kids, after all — so don’t kick up a fuss!) I wonder what kinda message this sends to mommies who feel stressed with only one or two kids. Keep reading »

Bristol And Levi, Back Together And Engaged!

This Thanksgiving is going to be awkward: Levi Johnston and Bristol Palin are engaged. Only a month ago, Bristol and Levi said they’d set their differences aside for the sake of their 1-year-old son, Tripp. And now these kids are getting married — even after Levi’s media carpet-bombing campaign in which he trashed former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin at every opportunity! “We got engaged two weeks ago,” Bristol told Us Weekly. “It felt right, even though we don’t have the approval of our parents.” Sarah Palin and her husband Todd released a statement in support of their daughter’s decision. “Bristol believes in redemption and forgiveness to a degree most of us struggle to put in practice in our daily lives,” the Palins said. “We pray that, as a couple, Bristol and Levi’s relationship matures into one that will allow Tripp to grow up graced with two loving parents in his life.”

I say it’s a smart move for Bristol; I couldn’t do an abstinence pledge either. [ABC News] Keep reading »
