    Celeb Relationships That Aren’t Total Trainwrecks

    (Another) Quote Of The Day: How Many Pairs Of Panties Is Chelsea Handler Wearing In This Picture?

    “If I don’t want to put on underwear because I’m wearing a dress and don’t want you to see the panty lines, I don’t have a choice. I have to wear underwear. If I get caught not wearing underwear, after I’ve made fun of [Britney and Lindsay] who flash their hot pocket for the camera, then I’m the a**hole. So … for the time being I own a lot of panties. If necessary, I’ll wear three or four pairs at once just to be safe.

    Amish Online Dating, A Prank With So Much Promise

    Tsk, tsk, Amish Online Dating, you had such promise as a prank. Mary Jo’s Sacred Amish Lingerie could have given us some chuckles, too.

    Huffington Post Delivers Celebs’ Pores And Pimples Up Close

    The Huffington Post recently introduced a new entertainment feature called The Big Picture, starring “unedited celebrity photos, blown up,” ostensibly so visitors can inspect the size of Lindsay Lohan, Elizabeth Hurley and Sting’s pores and comment on who could use a facial or plastic surgery. (Disclosure: I used to work at HuffPo.) “[The Big Picture is] a playful spin on our culture’s ongoing fascination with celebrity images,” a spokesperson told Portfolio.com. “Two days in, reader reaction has been largely positive.” Something tells me that reaction refers to a positive increase in website traffic for HuffPo, not positive commentary on body image. That’s a value Arianna Huffington appears to have hypocritically lauded in the very first chapter (“Fearless About The Body”) in her self-help book, On Becoming Fearless. Yes, airbrushing celebs and models is out of control, but zeroing in on “flaws” is no way to ease up on body-hating in our culture. But sadly, this isn’t new for HuffPo. [Portfolio] Keep reading »
