Today’s Lady News: Brazil To Ban Faulty Breast Implants

  • Brazil’s health ministry announced today it will permanently ban faulty breast implants created by the French company PIP, which used industrial-grade silicone instead of medical-grade silicone. When breast implants leak, industrial-grade silicone can be dangerous to the body. The PIP silicone implants were already temporarily banned in Brazil since 2010. [CBS News]

RIP, marriage: Russell Brand and Katy Perry are dunzo.

Russell Brand filed for divorce in Los Angeles, citing “irreconciable differences,” and released the following statement: “Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends.”

The couple married in October 2010, but rumors of a rocky, argument-fueled relationship have long dogged them. They raised eyebrows by spending Christmas this year apart: Russell in England with his friends, Katy in Hawaii with her friends. Both were photographed without wedding rings.

I’m sorry to see these two split … but I’m eager to see what the world looks like with both Rihanna and Katy Perry single and on the prowl!  [TMZ] Keep reading »

I once spent a 4th of July weekend with about 15 hardcore evangelical Christians. (Ex-Mr. Jessica’s sister was a born-again.) Explaining to some of the women what kind of website I write for proved to be awkward. But when I told one woman that The Frisky was similar to Cosmopolitan magazine, she exclaimed, “Oh, I read that!”

“Really?” I asked. “Isn’t it a little … uh … raunchy?”

She laughed. “Oh, I just flip past all the shirtless guys and stuff about sex.”

Then what part of the magazine do you actually read? I thought to myself.

That conversation popped into my head again when I saw this article on The Daily Beast about religious websites selling sex toys and the horrifying — not being hyperbolic here — opening story about a Christian woman who was married for 25 years before she finally bought a vibrator and had her first orgasm. Praise be! Keep reading »

As both a panda lover and a feminist, I was torn asunder by the BBC’s WTF decision to include a panda named Tian Tian on a list of 12 women of the year, but not include three women who won the Nobel Peace Prize or any female CEOs. #Pandagate, as the scandal became known on Twitter, is a bear claw right through the heart for those of us who love celebrating (human) ladies’ accomplishments as much as we love those funny, bamboo-eating black and white bears. And of course you know the Taiwanese animation treatment of #Pandagate is awesome, if rather editorialized with an anti-panda bias. Ahem. [NMA.tv Keep reading »

  • The Kardashian-Jenner kids’ former nanny Pam Behan is shopping a tell-all about working for the famous fam. She says Brody Jenner and his brother Brandon Jenner were “spoiled and disrespectful” and she once slapped Brandon after he called her “a very bad name.” She was almost fired but eventually grew to “love” the kids … which is why she’s now revealing “intimate details” about Kim and Kourtney in the book, of course.
