I know what you’re thinking: My pancake batter isn’t as stunningly extreme as I’d like it to be. How can I amp up the crazy on the next batch? May we suggest a custom Guy Fieri mixer?
Designed by Nicole Dinardo for Un Amore, and cobbled together with hair gel and bacon grease (we guess), this mixer is strictly for serious Guy’s American Bar & Grill fans. Sadly, though, it’s one-of-a-kind, which means that if you want a mixer that’ll get you on the bus to Flavortown, you’ll likely have to make own Fieri-inflamed designs. [Un Amore]
George Zimmerman has been taken into custody after his estranged wife Shellie called the police to report that he was threatening her and her father with a gun. No charges have been brought against him yet, and police are reportedly still “trying to determine what exactly happened.”
The Monday afternoon incident follows the news that Zimmerman’s wife Shellie filed for divorce last week, citing “irreconcilable differences.” In a statement read by her lawyers, “after much soul searching and recent disappointments, Shellie feels compelled to officially end her six year marriage to George Michael Zimmerman.” Last week, Shellie appeared on “Good Morning America,” where she admitted that George had been “verbally abusive” to her and that George was selfish.

Did you forget about Tyra Banks for five seconds? Because she’s got a plan to make herself talked about once more. The “America’s Next Top Model” host and smize-ing overlord created a series of photos for photographer Udo Spreitzenbarth’s exhibition, Tyra Banks Presents: 15, in which Tyra “transforms” herself into several iconic models — Kate Moss and Cindy Crawford to name a few.
Tyra being Tyra, couldn’t wait to share the photos with the world. “I’ve put my own spin on #NYFW w/a photo tribute to some of the fiercest #SuperModels ever. Unretouched. Real. Raw,” she tweeted. Keep reading »
A leather jacket is de rigueur for fall. But not everyone has the inclination or the ethics (hello, vegans!) to spend big bucks on a nice moto jacket. That’s why we’re here — to find the affordable, faux-leather versions of the high fashion styles you love.
After the jump, leather jackets and “leather” jackets we know you’ll love.
This weekend in the New York Times Social Q’s column, a woman wrote in to inquire about how to handle a ruthless grandma who is obsessed with her six-month-old granddaughter’s weight:
My husband and I have a beautiful 6-month-old daughter. She is chubby but not overweight by any means. My mother-in-law, who obviously has a weight obsession and is quite thin, has started making comments about my daughter’s size: “I can’t believe her legs are so big when she kicks all the time.” Or: “She’ll thin out when she starts to crawl.” My husband knows that these comments bother me, but he will not address them with her. I want to protect my daughter from her grandmother’s damaging and unhealthy fixation with weight. What should I do?
Okay, what kind of sick person body snarks a six-month-old baby? I don’t have kids, so I might be wrong about this, but aren’t babies supposed to be fat? I did not know that having a fat six-month-old was a problem you could have. Keep reading »
Rachel Roy shocked us with one of our favorite shows of NYFW so far. The collection embodies a downtown coolness without being overtly chilly or overly pretentious. In short, we wish we could wear it all, but alas! It’s not in the budget, and instead, we’ll admire from afar. Roy was in good company, too. There were great collections from Alexander Wang, Christian Siriano, Suno and Derek Lam — and you can check ‘em all out after the jump! And don’t forget to tell us who you love, in the comments.

I guess back in the ’80s some baby genius manufactured a phone reflective of the hit Boy George song “Karma Chameleon.” As evidenced by the video, it’s a phone shaped like a chameleon that sings to you every time someone calls. I want it, I want it, I want it! [YouTube]
The heart wants what it wants. And in the case of James Rene Mouton of Scott, Louisiana, the heart wanted to ride a horse into a bar and lasso a guy.
The 26-year-old had stopped into the Cowboys nightclub and kept his horse trailer parked in the bar’s parking lot. Which was convenient, because at some point during the night, he decided that he needed to go riding. In the bar. He was escorted out of the establishment on his steed by a 47-year-old man, who was then lassoed and dragged through the parking lot by Mouton.
Oh, but that’s not all.
A drunk Mouton dropped the horse off at his parent’s house and then returned to the bar on foot. The police were called, and Mouton tried to hide, but was eventually found and charged with disturbing the peace, remaining after being forbidden, second degree battery, public intimidation and retaliation.
Well, it is called Cowboys Nightclub. [KTSM]
Look, I wouldn’t really eat a cat. Or a cat face. But there are no words for how scrumptiously adorable this little cross-eyed tabby cat is. This is Jarvis P. Weasely, a stray brought to the Saving Grace Animal Rescue in San Francisco, California, when he was just four weeks old. That’s where a woman named Daria found him, and decided to foster him. She explained:
“I used to oversee the kitten fostering program at Oakland Animal Services (OAS) a few years back. When I would go to the shelter, I would always look in on Jarvis because he was soooo adorable and scruffy. I was fostering kittens at my house but I couldn’t take him home as he had a bad URI… Some days he would vertically leap around the kennel which I always assumed were jumps for joy, but more likely he saw ghost. Once the kittens were out of my house, I brought him home to ‘foster’. He never left! He is here, has a home, drives me crazy, and is loved immensely.”
Jarvis has a slight depth perception problem, thanks to the lazy eye, but is otherwise perfectly healthy and happy. And super, super cute. [LoveMeow]
