“The Amazing Race” Welcomes A Contestant With Asperger’s Syndrome

On the Sunday premiere of "The Amazing Race," Zev Glassenberg, a 26-year-old with Asperger’s syndrome, will become the latest reality show contestant to openly acknowledge having the disorder. We think this is very cool, but we have to ask: Why does Asperger's get so much play in the media? First, there wa…

New Favorite Website: The Museum Of Kitsch

Allee Willis' bio calls her a one-woman creative think tank, and I have to agree. She won a Grammy for the song "Beverly Hills Cop," and also wrote the theme for “Friends.” Her newest endeavor is pretty awesome. It's an online Museum of Kitsch, so there are no tickets required or field trips or keeping…

An Australian couple has given last week's dumpster diver and his happy cohort a run for the title of Stupidest Fornicators. Aussie cops at a gas station found a man and woman having sex in a parked car. When the couple refused to stop—yes, the police asked, and they refused—the cops arrested the driver…

An Ode To “The Wizard of Oz”

There's no place like home. There's no place like home. And there's no movie quite like "The Wizard of Oz," which turns 70 this week. Munchkin Land, the ruby slippers, the flying monkeys, the Emerald City—this 1939 blockbuster still has no expiration date. It gave us songs you still know by heart and image…

Pam And Jim Prep For Their Wedding

Remember last season, when Pam and Jim didn’t psych any of us out as they planned to sneak out and elope while their coworkers were dancing in "The Office" disco closet? They got halfway to the door when they decided to set a date and presumably print it on Dunder Mifflin paper invitations. Well,…

Should We Mind Miss Manners’ Salutations For Same-Sex Couples?

Not that you ever send snail mail any more, but Miss Manners received an interesting question from a reader yesterday: How should she address letters to same-sex married couples? I guess Mrs. and Mrs. Jones looks a little like a typo? “Thank you for not contributing to the general rude-ing down (the equivalent of…

Auctions Are The New Auditions

Jeffrey Donovan’s much-desired butt got a little close to the casting couch Sunday night. Well, kind of. At a benefit concert, the "Burn Notice" star auctioned off two walk-on roles on the show for $18,000 each. Maybe the lucky female bidders were under the impression that the cameos involved smooching Donavan’s character (Michael Westen)?

Loose Lips: Kimora Lee Simmons Gives Good Quote

Famous people say the darnedest things. Sometimes their gibberish is bizarre, sometimes it’s hilarious, and often it’s just plain scary. Fashion maven Kimora Lee Simmons tends to the run the gamut between all three extremes. Here's Kimora weighing in on phashion, phamiliy, phood and ph……

Women Keep Secrets For 47 Hours Before Spilling The Beans

For some reason Wines of Chile, a commerce group akin to our Cotton Council, commissioned a study of 3,000 women in the U.K. to see how many secrets they told and how many they were able to keep. The study uncovered that (gasp!) drinking wine usually loosens women’s tongues and makes us a lot more…

Linda McMahon Of The WWE Ready For A Congressional Smackdown

Her hubby Vince may have been the chairman willing to jump in the ring and get hit over the head with a metal folding chair, but, behind the scenes, Linda McMahon has been the one running the WWE as its CEO for the past 12 years. Having already smacked down wrestling's glass ceiling, Linda…

We Hope This Couple Gets To Reunite Soon

In Palestine, Basheer Mohammed Nasir wants to marry Amani Kamal Qassab. The couple has known each other for over two years, but they’ve been separated most of that time and it's not your traditional long-distance thing. She's in Gaza and he’s in the West Bank. They are divided by a broad swath of Israel,…

Jump Aboard The Michael Moore Bandwagon, Err, Gondola

Michael Moore tops my list of favorite documentary filmmakers I wouldn't want to snog but would totally marry. I love a juicy oversimplification applied by the left, and nobody does it like Moore. First he took on the ailing auto industry in "Roger & Me," then violence in "Bowling for Columbine," then the…
