Sarah Palin may not think “Family Guy” is funny, but the former governor of Alaska tried to show off her funny bone with a stand-up set on last night’s “Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” Her potshots at the White House were lame, but she made a few good jabs at Alaska. I think we can all say that Palin killed! No, not really. I was just making a hunting joke. [NBC] Keep reading »
Teen brothers can be awful. Trust me, I had one. But even in his infinite jerkitude, my brother never did anything as slut-shaming or awful as the alleged doings of a little Facebook hoodlum named Chris. According to Nerve.com, teenager Chris got ratted out by his sister, Katie, for a 12-pack of beer he had stashed in his bedroom. To retaliate, he allegedly rooted through her bedroom until he found her “hookup list,” which he posted on Facebook. Chris appears to have posted a looseleaf list of Katie’s conquests — “Adrian finger me,” “Brian only kiss” — and underneath he wrote a nasty little paragraph about it:
Since all I can do and all I’ll ever [do] for the next 2 and a half months involve [sic] sitting on the computer all day, I thought I’d get a little revenge today. Everyone out there might think my sister is such a sweet and innocent girl, but a few days ago I decided to go treasure hunting in her room and found a little something special in her closet. this will make the next 2.5 months bearable.
Ladies and gentlemen…..my sister is a whore.
Ugh. Douche! Keep reading »
I texted him as soon as I woke up.
“What do you want me to wear today?”
I brushed my teeth and washed my face while I waited for him to text me back.
“White button-down shirt. Tuck it in. Your jeans. Flats. Put your hair in a ponytail. Send me a photo.”
I dressed as instructed, then stood before the wall-length mirror in my apartment’s hallway. Smiling into the mirror, I snapped a photo on my iPhone and sent it to Ben*.
Thirty seconds later, a text message: “Very nice.” Then I knew I could leave for work.
Ben was not abusive. I was not being hurt, nor was I unhappy. We were in a dominant/submissive relationship — or playing at one, anyway — and following his orders got me unbelievably, unbelievably turned on. Keep reading »
“Bridget Jones’ Diary“: book, movie, and now … TV show? That’s the rumor The New York Post is spreading. NBC and the British movie company Working Title are allegedly working on a weekly series of “Bridget Jones Diary,” originally made famous by Renée Zellweger, Hugh Grant and Colin Firth. Hooray! Not only do us Bridget fans have a third movie to look forward to, we might get a boob tube version as well.
Still, as a diehard fan, the possible TV series is a mixed blessing: I’m guessing none of the mega-stars will be involved with a piddling television series and I just can’t imagine anyone else playing Bridget Jones and Daniel Cleaver but Renée and Hugh. YOU JUST DON’T MESS WITH GREATNESS. [NY Post] Keep reading »

Meet the man tasked with helping Lady Gaga do tricky stuff, like walking. Hmm, maybe she should just get a black Lab? [3/1/10, London] Keep reading »
I’ve never been afraid to ask for what I want in bed. I guess because during my teenage years I figured out I was/am a perv and I just owned it. But in my decade-plus of hooking up with dudes, I’ve come to see being clear about what I want is a bit rare: Guys have told me other women become self-conscious when asking for something risqué or kinky.
So, I’m going to help you out, boys. Here are some things your lady might want, but she’s too self-conscious to ask for. Don’t pressure anything, of course — but if you offer, you may be pleasantly surprised at how enthusiastically she accepts … Keep reading »
