Have you seen this “New Moon” promo of Kristen Stewart’s foreplay with Alex Meraz of Bella’s throwdown with the werewolf pack, Taylor Lautner‘s hot, bare-chested brothers? They must spend a lot replacing their T-shirts every time they change form. One matinee ticket, please. [I am unashamed to admit that I’ve already bought my ticket

Overweight And Underweight Teen Girls More Likely To Have Risky Sex

Here’s a strange study for you. Gynecology professor Aletha Akers just led a study about the sexual activity of teenage girls, surveying almost 7,200 girls about risky sexual behavior. The survey concluded that girls who are underweight, healthy weight, and overweight are equally as likely to have had sex. But apparently girls in the overweight…

Miley Cyrus Voted The Worst Influence Of 2009

Because of that pole-dancing stunt at the Teen Choice Awards? Or because of her reckless endangerment of Fuzzy? After the jump, let’s look at a…

The Stuff Of Legends: Angelina Jolie’s Sex Life

It’s been a big week for rumors about Angelina Jolie‘s life, pre-Brad. First came the bombshell rumor from Andrew Morton’s tell-all book that when Angie was 16 she did the horizontal polka with her mom’s boyfriend.

Teenage Burglars Used Their Tabloid Smarts To Rob 10 Celebrities

We’re all relieved that Rachel Bilson may soon get her jeans back—I just don’t know if she’ll want them now that they’ve been worn by someone else. We’re also glad that Paris Hilton has already picked up of big chunk of the $2 million-worth of jewelry stolen from her home. In September, we reported that…

Should You Go See “This Is It”?

Back in July, when we heard that Sony Pictures had plunked down $60 million smackers for 120 hours of footage from Michael Jackson‘s rehearsals for the “This Is It” tour that never was, we wondered if they were geniuses or crazy people. Yes, with MJ love flying high, it seemed like huge numbers of people…

A Supermarket Cinderella?

When Anna Sam, a literature student in France, graduated from college, she couldn’t for the life of her find a job in her field. So she kept the part-time job she had in school—as a supermarket cashier asking if patrons wanted paper or plastic. After years of observing the best and the worst of grocery…

Woman Acts Like Dog, Burglar Runs Away

Listen to this ingenious, cost-effective, do-it-yourself security idea. A Georgia woman was home alone recently when an apparently homeless man began trying to break in. When he opened the door, girlfriend got on the floor and began scratching like a dog, which scared the man off and sent him running. She imitated some other dog…

Elisabeth Moss & Fred Armisen Are The Epitome Of Nerdy Cool Love

Doesn’t it seem like Christina Hendricks and Elisabeth Moss were playing their “Mad Men” characters with their recent nuptials? When Christina, aka Joan, got married in July, she talked extensively to InStyle Wedding beforehand, telling them all about her dress and how fiancé Geoffrey Arend proposed under a chandelier. After the wedding, she released lavish…

Nightclubs Just For The Plus-Sized?

Plus-size nightclub Club Bounce is kind of like “More To Love” come to life. Lisa Marie Garbo, a big, beautiful blonde, opened the club five years ago, hoping it would be a place where she wouldn’t be “the only fat girl at the local nightclub.” Since then, her creation has become one in a string…

Should Mischa Barton Retire From Television?

I’m bummed. First, “The O.C.” killed off Mischa Barton in season three (naturally, season four was the show’s last), and now Mischa’s latest attempt at television glory, the CW’s ill-fated “Beautiful Life,” has become the textbook example of early cancellation. And thus, Mischa says she is done with television. “I think I need to back…

Stiletto Attack, Stripper-Style

When 52-year-old Jo Ellen Nolan lost her job this year, she jumped right up and landed a new one—as an exotic dancer. I think that’s fantastic; I’m much younger than her, and I don’t consider my legs eligible for that kind of backup plan. Jo Ellen expected that the younger strippers at the club would…

Butt Injections Cause Infections For Latin Grammy Winner

Consider this a cautionary tale. A few weeks ago, Latin Grammy winner Alejandra Guzmán went to a clinic run by Valentina Albornoz to get injections meant to make her butt shapelier, which we think is strange because her posterior was plenty shapely just the way it was. The moment that the injection entered her body,…

Is TV Helping To De-Stigmatize Mental Illness?

It’s the time of year when production companies start working on pilots for shows they hope will be picked up to air next year. One such show is “The Quickening,” which will be written by the awesome Jennifer Salt of “Nip/Tuck” and will star the lovely Radha Mitchell as a bipolar detective whose medication stabilize…
