Neutrogena makeup wipes aren’t fancy enough for you? Chanel sells 100 individual cotton makeup wipes for $20. It is actually not a terrible deal: each cotton wipe comes out to 20 cents each. However, the pads are all emblazoned with Chanel’s interlocking “Cs,” which is a bit much for something you’re just going to toss in the trash afterwards and screams “label whore!” to me.

Sexting is, like, so not cool. Only one percent of kids age 10 to 17 have shared naked pics of themselves, according to new data released today in the journal Pediatrics. Researchers on the APA study disputed a commonly cited piece of data which said that one in five — or 20 percent — of kids ages 14 to 24 had sexted. But that definition of “sext” had included sexy text messages without photos, as well as photos “no more revealing than what someone might see at a beach,” according to the AP. This new study asked teens — and only teens — to be more explicit about the images that they send and receive. Clearly the past inclusion of twentysomethings in the survey pool skewed the results. In fact, the younger kids are, the less likely they are to sext.
Wait, you mean America was whipped up into a frenzy over a teen sex panic that turned out to be nothing? You don’t say! Keep reading »
Hibernation season has begun! The long, dark, cold nights of winter are here. (Shut up, Southern California.) And besides, you’re too broke to go out, anyway. What’s a girl to do?

A schedule of all the shows you won’t want to miss, after the jump! Keep reading »
Because being accused of an affair is apparently worse than being accused of sexually harassing a bunch of women, Herman Cain has suspended his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination. Cain told supporters on Saturday he is leaving the race over “the continued distraction.” (Weirdly, the announcement came one day after his campaign launched a laughably bizarre “Women For Cain” website.) And regarding the actual accusation by Atlanta woman Ginger White that they’ve been boinking for 13 years? He continued his tactic of deny, deny, deny. Keep reading »
“I’m shocked Kourtney Kardashian is pregnant again. Did she not learn anything from Teen Mom? Maybe it’s a fake pregnancy like Kim’s wedding. SAD. Double standards in this world? Yes, and guess what? Age and money honestly do not change a person’s poor choice. Quit making excuses.”
— Farrah Abraham from “Teen Mom” ranted on Twitter today about Kourtney Kardashian‘s announcement that she is pregnant with her second child. But, Farrah, what is Kourtney Kardashian supposed to “learn” from “Teen Mom”? Kourtney didn’t get pregnant as a teen — she is having her second kid at age 32. And she’s been in a long-term relationship with Scott Disick, who, while a douche, seems like a better parent than Gary or Ryan, two of “Teen Mom”‘s all-star dads. And why is Kourt having a second child a “poor choice”? I hate to break it to you, Far, but age and money do change a person’s poor choice — having age/experience and money/resources generally makes huge life decisions like having children a lot easier.
Sounds like sour grapes to me. [Twitter.com/F1abraham via Us Weekly] Keep reading »
