I would never speak ill of Dita Von Teese. Ever. However, I cannot endorse the dress that the burlesque performer wore in Australia when she launched her Von Follies lingerie line at Target. (It’s only Down Under. Booooo.) It looks like Dita’s lacy bra is trying to escape out of her J.Lo-cut dress on purpose! If your name is anything other than “Dita Von Teese,” how can you possibly wear a dress like this without constantly being stopped by well-meaning folks telling you they can see your bro? I’m more pro-Wearing Lingerie As Outerwear than some other ladies on The Frisky staff, but the escaping bra is a confusing look.

But other than that … rock on, Dita.

  • Don Draper might not have such discriminating taste, but Jon Hamm does. In April’s issue of Elle UK, he says “stupidity is celebrated” with Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian and “being a f**king idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly.” I’m not thrilled he only named ladies here — cough The Situation cough — but his sentiment is nevertheless swoonworthy.  [Daily Mail UK]
  • John Mayer’s throat issues have returned and his live performing career is on “indefinite break,” meaning his next tour has been canceled. [PopCrush
  • Ellen DeGeneres pranked Megan Fox with a giant banana man, for some reason. [The FW]
  • Remember the little boy who played Anakin Skywalker in the “The Phantom Menace”? His name is Jake Lloyd, he’s 22, goes to Columbia, and hates acting. [The Celebrity Cafe]
  • There’s a vicious rumor going around that the Olsen twins did so much coke with their sister Elizabeth when she was “not even [a] teen” that she had to get a nose job. [Crushable] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: GA Lawmaker Compares Women To Cows & Pigs

  • A Republican state representative compared women to livestock earlier this week, while he spoke in favor of criminalizing abortion after 20 weeks. Speaking to the restriction on abortion even when the fetus isn’t expected to live, Terry England said, “I’ve had the experience of delivering calves, dead and alive — delivering pigs, dead and alive. It breaks our hearts to see those animals not make it.” Yes, your reproductive health care was just compared to that of a barnyard animal.  [Raw Story]
  • Job growth has been stronger for men than women during most of 2010 and 2011. But interestingly, the last few months have been stronger in job growth for women. Well, we do earn more advanced degrees, so … [New York Times]
  • I co-sign everything Emily McCombs at xoJane has to say about kinky sex and feminism. (And humbly submit my own writings on the subject here and here. [xoJane] Keep reading »

God bless Gloria Allred: the attorney has fired off a letter to the Palm Beach County Attorney’s Office to notify them that their most noxious resident, Rush Limbaugh, broke the law. (Again.) It turns out Florida has an obscure defamation statue classifying the “false and malicious questioning of a woman’s chastity” as a misdemeanor. Which, of course, is exactly with Limbaugh did when he called Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” on his nationally syndicated radio recorded in Florida. 

Let’s be real: Florida should repeal such a sexist law. I mean, really, “a woman’s chastity”? But I’m not going to be pretend I would be tickled if Rush Limbaugh did get in trubs for defamation. [Huffington Post]

Jon Hamm & Jennifer Westfeldt Are My Relationship Role Models

I don’t care too much about celebrity couples, the flings and breakups and and marriages and babies. I’m far too cynical for all that: there’s so much smoke and mirrors going on in Hollywood that half that stuff is publicist B.S. anyway.

But I read the article in this week’s New York Times Magazine about “Friends With Kids” director/star Jennifer Westfeldt and her co-star/boyfriend, a little actor you may have heard of named Jon Hamm. They both sound like normal people who are bewildered by all scrutiny on them just because they’re famous and they’ve carried on a happy-sounding, healthy-sounding relationship for 14 years. How the hell do they do it? And how can I steal their secrets?

  • David Duchovny’s lawyers went off on the New York Post when it ran an article by a psychologist who trashed sex addiction as “nothing more than a pop-psychology phenomenon.” The actor said he suffered from sex addiction when he separated from his wife Tea Leoni back in 2008 and wants no association with the psychologist who’s written a book denouncing the illness. [New York Post]
  • Demi Moore’s daughter Scout Willis tweeted some weird shit from her Twitter account, like “I hate capitalism like I hate my parents, but they both serve me so well,” but a rep says it was just for a school assignment at Brown University. [Us Weekly]
  • A cop pulled over Amanda Bynes for talking on her cell phone while driving and she drove off while the cop was writing her a ticket. [PopBytes]
