Dang it, we knew there had to be a trade-off for getting sex on demand when you live with a partner: A recent Australian study of 6,000 women has shown that, after 10 years, the average gal gains 15 lbs. if she lives with a partner and 20 lbs. if she lives with someone and has a baby. According to The New York Times, “There is no reason to believe that having a partner causes metabolic changes, so the weight gain among childless women with partners was almost surely caused by altered behavior.” You know, like those post-coital pints of Cherry Garcia.

Cartoonist Andrew Woods, the most irritating cast member on MTV’s “Real World: D.C.,” is even more unscrewable than originally thought. Amanda Hess at The Sexist ransacked his student newspaper archives and found that a bunch of Woods’ cartoons are about date-raping women. Yes, rape, the most giggly of topics! Wannabe-brodawg Andrew’s oeuvre damn near entirely consists of cartoons about liquoring women up so he can get laid, which is very much in the style of Tucker Max‘s body of work: women + too much alcohol + scampish naughtiness = pushing the borderlines of consent as a “joke.”
Let’s check out Andrew’s rape-y cartoons, after the jump! Keep reading »
Who the hell weds in suspenders? Marc Jacobs‘ new husband does! After a year-long engagement, Jacobs and his longtime boyfriend, Lorenzo Martone, tied the knot last week in a private ceremony in St. Barts. (Aha, this must be why they were snapping saucy photos there!) Besides a groom in suspenders, the schmancy fete included a flower-strewn pool, guests like Russell Simmons, and the cutest mini-me cake toppers we’ve ever seen. The “Marc” cake topper is even wearing the designer’s signature kilt! Congratulations to the happy couple—and stay tuned for copycat-suspender grooms to come. [Guest Of A Guest] Keep reading »
On Christmas night, I sauntered into the kitchen to pour myself a glass of milk when my dad turned away from the TV to tell me that Charlie Sheen had been arrested for domestic violence. A major TV star? Domestic violence on Christmas? Zut alors! Blogger Jessica sprang to action: I hit up TMZ and typed out a post as quickly as I could. This will be huge, I thought.
It was all for naught, though. The Charlie Sheen story never became a Really Big Deal like the Tiger Woods scandal did. Maybe Woods’ established good-guy reputation is more fun to rip apart and all the mistresses are dishier. Or maybe Sheen’s lawyers really were successful in their effort to keep Brooke Mueller quiet and the controversy has been muffled into submission. (Last we heard, Mueller’s lawyers said the two just had a “bad night”—um, my bad nights don’t involve death threats!) Or maybe the nation just has Charlie Sheen Is A Douche fatigue.
But I don’t: Sheen allegedly held a knife to his wife’s throat and threatened to kill her—and he’s been convicted of physically abusing a girlfriend in the past. And yet the public reaction isn’t even one-tenth as much as the Tiger Woods scandal reaction. Since when is cheating worse than beating? Keep reading »
Oh, pervy cigar ad, how fortunate we are that you are old, so we can laugh at you.
Red Lipstick And Leopard Print Lady doesn’t exactly look like she “needs” to be clubbed over the head and dragged to bed, though. [AdWeek] Keep reading »
“It’s funny. When [my husband] Laurence and I go out into the countryside, I think a few of the older locals actually believe I’m a whore … They follow him around, they want to mother him …Then they look at me and are like, ‘That slag! How could you dirty yourself with her? She’s corrupted you.’”
—Billie Piper, star of “Secret Diary Of A Call Girl” [Daily Mail]
