Actor Katrina Day has collected a series of sexist casting breakdowns for her not-haha-funny new Tumblr Some Lady Parts. Some of these notices read like Craigslist personal ads: “Seeking: Hot Blonde girl … Blonde hair …. classic hot girl.” Others aim for highbrow, but end up unrealistic and porn-y: “Seeking: Ultimate fantasy woman of a sexually frustrated college graduate.

In case you haven’t noticed, Robin Thicke has no interest in being coy about his separation with Paula Patton after 10 years of marriage. His upcoming album “Paula” drops on July 1st with songs like “Get Her Back,” “Forever Love,” and “Too Little Too Late.” Just in case the tour (which we’re assuming is just Thicke pulling a Say Anything) doesn’t send a loud enough message to Ms. Patton, maybe these B-Sides will do the trick: Keep reading »
