Get A Cat And A Free iPad Stand Is Included

Cats and iPads come together once again! We know that kitties can be driven crazy by Apple’s new invention, but can they work in harmony? Some iPad owners have found the answer is yes. It seems that if you’re sick of the pesky task of holding your iPad, a cat is happy to take it off your hands. You get to read at an angle; the cat gets a warm butt. Everyone’s happy!

Cristiano Ronaldo’s Sex Scandal Leads To Lame Body-Snarking

Soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo is a sports god in Europe, and he has the salary to prove it. Ronaldo is starting to register with non-sports-centered Americans too, especially after a very brief fling with Paris Hilton. So, like all good potential celebrities, Ronaldo has a sex scandal brewing. A woman named Naya recently hit the airwaves to give a detailed account of her roll in the hay with the soccer superstar. The 21-year-old gave an exclusive interview to a Spanish television show dishing the dirty details. The reason the show got the exclusive interview? It is rumored that the media outlet paid her to bed the actor and then promised to go on-air about it! In other words, these TV execs may have been willing to basically prostitute this woman (who went along with it, in theory) to get superficial details about Cristiano Ronaldo’s sex life — what a crazy story, right? Yet, that isn’t what’s catching media attention. Press and opinions about the tryst instead are focusing on the fact that this women is “fat.” Keep reading »

10 Great Guy Movies A Gal Can Earn Serious Points For Loving

I was raised in a peculiar fashion. As for many kids, movies and TV provided important entertainment and a good way to keep me quiet. But the content I grew up on has been deemed questionable by some. I was banned from watching children’s shows because my father thought it was mind-numbing, repetitive trash that I could easily be taught with flash cards. And so “Barney” and “Sesame Street” were supplanted by what my parents wanted to watch—”Frasier,” “Mad About You,” “Jaws,” “Ransom,” whatever. I am not necessarily advocating this way of child-rearing, but two things did come out of it.

  1. As an adult, I have a strange affinity for educational kids’ shows.
  2. Since my father had stronger opinions at the video store, I have watched a huge number of “man movies,” basically since birth.

And the latter has offered me a certain advantage in stirring up conversation with guys. If you drop buzz words like “Boondock Saints” or “Big Lebowski,” and know what you are talking about, you can find yourself earning some major points with men. Keep reading »

“The Wizard Of Dogz” Is As Cute As You Imagine

How do you make a cherished classic film even better? You replace the entire cast with costumed canines! In “Wizard of Dogz,” Toto is tossed aside as the animal star, reduced to a mere stuffed animal. The rest of the characters are replaced by precious pets in costumes that I wish my cats had the patience to wear long enough for me to get a picture. There is only one problem with this animal imitation—once again a feline is stuck with the role of the villain. This furthers the stereotype that cats are evil, and prevents them from getting more substantial work in Hollywood. I hope to see a day where cats are embraced as a positive cinematic element, instead of pigeon-holed as criminal masterminds and bad guys. How about ferrets instead? They seem pretty smelly and evil to me. Anyhoo, it is time for me to step off my soapbox and time for you to watch the cuteness overload that is “Wizard of Dogz.” Keep reading »

10 Freaky Fast Food Items

fastfood doubledown 040910 jpg
Mark your calendars. On April 12, KFC’s Double Down is coming into the world. What was once only a rumor has now been confirmed by The Colonel and will soon be very, very real. Here is the dilemma that this new concotion is trying to solve: Have you ever been eating a chicken sandwich and gone, “Darn, I wish this sandwich was surrounded by meat rather than the lame bun”? Neither have I! But, apparently this was the wish of some fast food fanatic, because now we have the Double Down. The D-Squared’s main marvel is that it uses two hunking chicken pieces in place of buns. That’s right, the bread has gone bye-bye and greasy finger-lickin chicken has taken its place to hold together a gooey mess of cheese and bacon. This new fast food Frankenstein is 540 calories with 32 grams of fat, and just plain weird. I am sure that won’t stop some people from chomping down. See what the mad scientists of McDonald’s, Burger King, and other fast food chains have thought up and tried to pass off as normal food over the years. Don’t be ashamed to share which ones you would try in the comments.

A Handy Guide To What Causes Guys To Reach For A Hanky

Even Superman is susceptible to wounded Wonder Twins, a true sign that a testicle injury is man’s ultimate emotional downfall. I figure it’s the female equivalent of watching the end of a Nicholas Sparks movie and then suddenly getting punched in the chest. Guys, we ladies have tender spots, too! Keep reading »

Justin Timberlake Wants To Be Your “Friends With Benefits”

Usually, this story would just be about Justin Timberlake landing a role in a new film called “Friends With Benefits.” But there is a bigger issue here, other than questioning whether JT can successfully act in something that isn’t “Saturday Night Live.” See, Justin’s “Friends With Benefits” is just one of three projects currently in the works with the same title. You’d think this title would’ve been used already, since the term has bopped around our lexicon for years, but it hasn’t. It looks like the entertainment world can use a little help deciding whom to bestow the coveted title to. Read on and decide who you think deserves the prize. [Deadline] Keep reading »

10 Famous Female Cheaters

Whoopi Goldberg
Today, everyone’s favorite person without eyebrows—Whoopi Goldberg—admitted on “The View” that she cheated on her husband several times while they were together. She let the secret fly as her co-hosts discussed, who else, Jesse James. While the rest of “The View” citizen conversationalists deemed James’ action inexcusable, Whoopi defended him. “Maybe he was looking for something different,” she said. “Hey, listen, I did it five or six times. Yes, I screwed around. Yes, while I was married. I made those mistakes, too, yeah. It happens sometimes.” [Celebitchy] I never would’ve suspected Whoopi as a woman to set off the affair alarm. But she is in good company. After the jump, see what famous females took femme fatale too far and ended up killing their relationships because of their infidelities.

Excerpts from Kate Gosselin’s Tell-All Book Tell Us … Nothing

It looks like Kate Gosselin shares secrets just about as well as she dances. For the few of you who didn’t see her latest performance on “Dancing With the Stars,” it was sort of like watching a poor interpretative dance about a stalled car. Now, it seems that Kate has also stalled on sharing anything too juicy in her new memoir, I Just Want You to Know: Letters to My Children on Love, Faith and Family, based on excerpts in Us Weekly. The upcoming book is a series of notes written to the different members of her extensive brood. The notes include reassurances to her children that just because she is busy being famous and getting new hairstyles, doesn’t mean that she won’t always be there for them. Unless she is flying out to L.A to dance. So basically, I Just Want You to Know is a snoozefest. Read on to see some of the most “interesting” excerpts from the memoir, but don’t prepare to be shocked. Keep reading »

These Peeps Are Turning Japanese

Remember playing house with your kindergarten boyfriend and Play-Doh food? Well, Peepshi is the sushi equivalent of taking something wholly adult and giving it a juvenile rebirth. All you need are three childhood dietary staples: Fruit by the Foot, Rice Krispies, and, of course, Peeps. But be warned! This recipe is not for the faint of heart, or people who don’t like to get their hands sticky. You will need to have the nerve to cut off quite a few candy chicken heads.
