Watch PETA’s Sexy “State Of The Union Undress”

People will only pay attention to animal rights if you show them boobies! That’s always seemed to be People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals‘ entire advertising campaign logic, hasn’t it? PETA’s 2010 “State Of The Union Undress” — yes, you read that right, undress — is more of the same. A fetching young model strips down to her bra, panties and garters while lecturing about McDonald’s, KFC and the Ringling Bros. circus. We’ve posted the “safe for work” version above, but for those of you who really need to see boobies before you’ll care about animal cruelty, there is an uncensored version on PETA’s website.

Erika From “The Real World D.C.” Admits She Lied About Cancer

One “Real World: D.C.” cast member might have a bit of trouble with the show’s “start getting real” part. The show’s resident “rocker chick,” Erika Wasilewski, revealed that she once lied about having cancer. When Time Out Chicago told Erika about nasty rumors they read online, she admitted that she faked cancer to get sympathy after her high school boyfriend broke up with her:

“Um, there is some truth to what you’re hearing. Yes, it happened. Yes, I regret it. If I could take it back, I would. I was going through some severe emotional problems at the time. I was lashing out and craving attention wherever I could. It was really destructive. I didn’t even realize I had a problem until my freshman year of college. At that point, I received help and I did take antidepressants. I weaned myself off with the guidance of my doctor, and I’ve basically done a complete turnaround.”

Lying about cancer is pretty low, but we’re happy the spunky Illinois native realized she had serious problems and got treatment. But will the terrible lies in Erika’s former life be revealed to her new roommates? We can only hope. [Time Out Chicago] Keep reading »

“Cougar” Ad For Air New Zealand Is Equal Parts Funny And Offensive

Off-fun-sive? Hilari-sexist? Don’t mind me: I’m just trying to think up a word to describe ads that I know demean women, but I actually think are pretty funny. Take this commercial for Air New Zealand, a faux-nature documentary about “cougars” and their prey. I’d be happy if I never again heard the word “cougar,” “puma” or “cheetah” to describe a sexually active woman in her 40s—but at least these folks are tongue-in-cheek about it. What do you think?

Does “Shush” Mean The Same Thing As “Shut Up”?

Let’s be honest: every relationship has a moment—OK, a lot of moments—where one person just wants the other person to shut up. Whether it’s in the middle of a fight or just during a stressful moment, the sound of the other person’s voice is just bothering you.

But saying “shut up,” as we all learned in grade school, is just rude. Relationships thrive on kindness and telling your partner to “shut up” is about as disrespectful as you can get. So, how to you get your boo to cease and desist talking/nagging/complaining while still showing some respect? Keep reading »

Cute Or Creepy? New MA Senator Scott Brown Announces His Daughters Are “Available”

Eeeek, you think your parents are embarrassing? Republican Scott Brown won a Senate seat in Massachusetts last night and used his victory speech to announce his college-aged daughters are single and ready to mingle. Arianna, who is pre-med at Syracuse, and Ayla, who appeared on “American Idol” and is a student at Boston College, stood by their dad’s side while he told millions of people watching on TV they were “both available”—then when corrected by Ayla, announced only “Ayla is definitely available.” The crowd started laughing and cheering and at this point his wife, Gail, shrieked, “Stop!”

What do you think? All-in-good-fun cute or majorly creepy? Keep reading »
