Last summer, virgins students at the all-boys Landon School in Bethesda, Maryland, organized a “fantasy sex league” where they could earn points for bedding certain girls, The Washington Post reports. The boys planned to “draft” girls they knew onto teams, throw a series of parties which those girls would attend, and then tally up the points.

Fortunately, these Tucker-Maxes-in-training were caught before the first party took place. Three students received an in-school suspension. But after reading the creepy details of what these boys did, that punishment does not nearly fit the crime. Keep reading »

Russian Model With Circus Boobs Says Turbulence Ruined Her Plastic Surgery

It probably hurt, but Russian model Iren Ferrari learned a valuable life lesson about plastic surgery: Ferrari is suing a Swiss airline after she says turbulence burst her size 44J breast implants.

Ferrari claims the rocking plane threw her surgically altered body into her facing seat and her lawyer helpfully added, “The space between the seats was too tight for her breasts.” Maybe if Chesty LaRue wins the $120,000 she’s asking for, she can get her circus boobs a breast reduction.

Quotable: Rihanna Says, “I’m A Black Girl On A Fashion Spread”

“I respect designers who aren’t afraid to go outside the box. I went to a Jean Paul Gaultier show, and I saw girls who are thicker than me, beautiful and voluptuous and different ethnicities. That made me so excited. I thought, ‘Okay, I can work that, for sure.’ It’s clear there are definitely fewer black women in the high-fashion industry.
