  • Sources close to Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith say they are headed for divorce, as they fight “like cats and dogs” and sleep in separate bedrooms. If you recall, these same rumors dropped in August and the couple released a statement saying their marriage was still “intact.” I’m worried about poor little Willow Smith having to listen to the fights!

[New York Times]
  • Check out President Obama’s paternalistic, semi-condescending comments on the Plan B decision: â€œAs the father of two daughters, I think it is important for us to make sure that we apply some common sense to various rules when it comes to over-the-counter medicine.” Obama won 56 percent of the female vote in 2008. Could recent backlash cost him much-needed female support in the next election? [ABC News]

  • One of the original members of the Pussycat Dolls, Kaya Jones, says it’s her voice, not “lead singer” Nicole Scherzinger’s, that you can hear on the smash hits “Buttons” and “Don’t Cha.” Oooooooooh. (But, really, people, it’s all auto-tuned to hell and back anyway.) [RadarOnline

The ad in question depicts a woman’s bare legs on what looks like a tiled bathroom floor with her panties pulled down to her ankles and the text reads:

02:19 a.m  SHE DIDN’T WANT TO DO IT, BUT SHE COULDN’T SAY NO.

When your friends drink, they can end up making bad decisions. Like going home with someone they don’t know very well.

Decisions like that leave them vulnerable to dangers like date rape. Help your friends stay in control and stay safe. Keep reading »
