Just because Michele Bachmann dropped out of the 2012 presidential race doesn’t mean we’re in the clear — there are still plenty of candidates who would love nothing more than to restrict women’s reproductive rights. Newt Gingrich was asked by a voter yesterday whether he supports abortion if the woman was impregnated via rape or incest. And what do you think Mr. Compassionate had to say about that?

No, I wouldn’t make exceptions. What I would try to do is create a program that would enable women in those circumstances to have support and help them through whatever process they needed both in terms of counseling and in terms of if they wanted to give up the baby for adoption. Keep reading »

“I guess that [the things "Portlandia" makes fun of] are ridiculous, but at the same time they’re things that I embrace — it’s a set of behaviors and an ideology that I enact, and that I think many of us sort of perform or follow. But then, at the same time, as you’re doing it, I think there is an awareness sometimes that probably somewhere, for someone else, there is a bigger battle than, you know, making sure that your fresh pasta is local, or whether or not the ingredients are organic.

If Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy (and Chris O’Dowd and Jon Hamm, yum) were to star in “Bridesmaids 2,” I would buy tickets tomorrow even if the movie hadn’t started filming yet. But Kim Masters from The Hollywood Reporter writes that even though Universal is planning a sequel to 2011′s blockbuster comedy, Wiig has confirmed she is is not involved. ”We aren’t working on that,” she said, referring to co-writer Annie Mumolo. ”Annie and I aren’t planning a sequel. We are writing something else.” What the eff? Keep reading »

Looks like that rumor is true: Kanye West’s ex-girlfriend Amber Rose is blabbing to Star magazine that the rapper cheated on her with Kim Kardashian (who was dating Reggie Bush at the time). Good show all around, everyone!

“Kim is one of the main reasons why me and Kanye are not together,” Amber told the tabloid. “She’s a homewrecker!” The model said that Kim called, texted and sent racy photos to Kanye and got busted by Amber herself, who fired off an email to which Kim never responded. “She was sending pictures, and I was like, ‘Kim, just stop. Don’t be that person,’” Amber said. “I thought at least she’d be woman enough to respond to me.  She never responded.” Keep reading »
