  • Paul McCartney might be wedding his longtime girlfriend Nancy Shevell this weekend, if suspicious vans filled with party supplies are any indication. But even if there’s no ex-Beatle nuptials this weekend, you can always watch the two-night Kardashian wedding special beginning Sunday. Come on, you knew you were going to anyway! [People]
  • Check out this audition video that Kate Moss filmed for L’Oreal when she was only a teenager. You can tell by looking at her that she’s got something special. [The Gloss]

Today’s Lady News: Jewish Women, Move To The Side For Men!

Today's Lady News
  • New signs have been posted in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, which read “Precious Jewish daughters, please move over to the side when you see man come across.” The neighborhood has a high concentration of Orthodox Jews, who operate a strict separation between the sexes among people who are unrelated. So far, at least 16 signs have been removed by New York City’s parks department — not because of their content but because they were nailed to trees, which is illegal. [Brooklyn Paper]

Say what you will about the choices Diablo Cody has made as a result of her fame from “Juno,” but the woman takes risks — huge risks — with what she puts out there. (That campy Megan Fox/Amanda Seyfried horror movie that flopped? Exactly.) Her newest movie coming out this holiday season is called “Young Adult” and stars Charlize Theron as a 30-something woman who heads back to her hometown looking for her ex, who is married with a new baby. I think you’ll agree with me after watching this trailer that this film is going to be risky. Keep reading »

Was there ever any doubt that Melissa McCarthy goes there and then goes 100 paces farther? Add the “Bridesmaids” sex tape as another piece evidence in the case for her complete fearlessness in the pursuit of being funny. The  ”sex tape” between her character Megan and Air Marshall Jon is all kinds of wrong. Like, Cheez-Whiz-and-a-taser wrong. Melissa, you are my hero. [Funny Or Die]

Three women from Africa and the Middle East have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2011. Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf (pictured), peace activist Leymah Gbowee, and democracy activist Tawakul Karman of Yemen have all been honored for their commitment to nonviolence. The majority of individuals to win the Nobel Peace Prize in the past 110 years have been men; the last time a woman won was seven years ago. Congratulations, ladies! It’s a proud day to be a woman. [New York Times]

The Good, The Bad, & The WTF: The Situation Teaches Snooki A Lesson

Oh, Mike. You’re such a creep. On last night’s episode of “Jersey Shore,” Mike tries to teach Snooki a lesson (his choice of words) by spreading the rumor that he or his friend called Jionni to tattletale about their alleged hookup. It’s hard to say whether doing that, or letting Snooki think he did that, is the more douchey thing to do.

So, thanks to him, we learned a new Jerseylicious acronym: GTD or “Gym, Tan, Drama.” Though GTD could just as easily be “Gym, Tan, Domestic Violence,” because Snooki freaked the f**k out on Mike and chucked like 12 wine bottles at his head.

Now, what The Situation did to her was bad. Really bad. But for the love of gelato, that was insane. Snooki is like the new Ronnie, which is to say an emotionally-stunted caricature of an adult human being.
