  • Demi Moore was taken to a Los Angeles hospital on Monday night after paramedics responded to a 911 call at her home.  The night before, People claims Demi Moore spend a “late night out” with her 23-year-old daughter Rumer Willis, where she was seen grinding on the butt of one of Rumer’s “90210″ co-stars, unbottoning his shirt and “stickling his bare chest playfully.” Sources say Demi has a substance abuse problem  — although which substance is unclear — and is checking into a facility for care. A statement from her rep said, “Because of the stresses in her life right now, Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health.  She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends.” She has also dropped out of plans to play Gloria Steinem in the “Lovelace” biopic. Oh dear. We like Demi and wish her the best! [TMZ, People, US Weekly] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Abortion Is Safer Than Giving Birth, Says Study

  • Abortion is safer for American women than giving birth, according to a new study published yesterday in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology. A woman is about 14 times more likely to die during or after giving birth than from complications involving an abortion. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, anti-abortion protesters who claim all abortions are unilaterally dangerous for women. (Of course, we are talking about legal abortions here.) [Reuters]
  • Women were only five percent — I repeat, only five percent — of directors in the top 250 grossing films of 2011, according to a study released today from San Diego State University. Overall, women comprised 18 percent (less than one-fifth) of directors, producers, writers, cinematographers and editors on such films. [Chicago Tribune]
  • Pepperdine University in Malibu, California, won’t allow an LGBT club called Reach OUT to exist on campus because the club does not honor “the biblical conviction that sexual activity should be reserved for a husband-wife relationship,” according to the school newspaper.

Funny Or Die Removed Comic’s “Obscene” Breastfeeding Skit (NFSW)

The Breast Milk Diet

… because what is more obscene than feeding your hungry children?!  I mean, UGH.

I am being hyperbolic; the comedy site Funny Or Die was not. Comedian Ahna Tessler is a breastfeeding mama of twins and she submitted a skit of herself, which incorporated the breastfeeding, on Funny Or Die. The short skit called “Leah Got A Job” is about a woman who just got hired as an art teacher even though she hates children — and while she’s bitching about kids, the camera pans down to where a baby is latched to each boob. It’s shocking only because seeing a woman breastfeeding her child on camera is shocking — after two seconds of shock, it’s just “oh, she’s feeding the kids.” The video isn’t even that funny. Overall, it’s not a big deal.

At least, not to me. Funny Or Die thought differently. According to The New York Times, Ahna Tessler’s video was flagged as “obscene” — perhaps by a moderator — and not published. But what’s really a headscratcher is that her previous Funny Or Die videos were all taken down and her account with the site was suspended. Keep reading »

A Scrotum Itch Commercial Worth Watching, Even For The Scrotum-Less

Watch Video

I have no business watching a scrotum itch commercial, much less one in Japanese. But I don’t regret the minutes of my life I’ll never get back after watching this on repeat. There’s itching. There’s singing. There’s dancing (sort of). Why can’t Vagisil commercials be this funny? (I mean, outside of “Saturday Night Live.”) [Copyranter]

Stop toying with us, music industry. Fiona Apple is too incredible a musician to keep dicking her fans around! Alas, that’s what record companies have always done with Fiona, from her 2005 album Extraordinary Machine to her latest album, which has been sitting in limbo for one-year-plus. But over the weekend, Epic Records CEO L.A. Reid gave us hope: on Sunday he tweeted, “Lots of good music coming from @Epic_Records in the next few weeks. Stay tuned music fans. Welcome back Fiona!” In the next few weeks? Be still my heart! I don’t understand why backed-up albums keep happening to Fiona Apple, especially since she has a solid and ardent fan base. Is it a bad string of luck? Is she difficult to work with? Can the music industry make more money off Nicki Minaj singing about a “stupid hoe”? It’s probably some combination of all three. Release Fiona’s new album, Epic Records, and I promise I’ll buy the shit out of it. [Twitter.com/LA_ReidRolling Stone
