I don’t want to brag or anything, but my apartment in Manhattan is pretty out of control. It has two whole rooms plus a kitchen that’s so big that if I clear space, I can actually fit a cutting board on the counter. Oh yeah, and the bathroom is so exclusive that there isn’t even room for a tub—just a shower. I share the whole shebang with a roommate. Feeling jealous? Well it’s OK, because there are actually some homes in this world that dwarf even my fantastic abode and most of them belong to celebs. Keep clicking to find out who the above mega-mansions belong to.

Texas woman Joan Ginther may just be the luckiest woman in the world. She has won the lottery four times. The chances of doing this are just one in 18 septillion. In case you (understandably) didn’t know—18 septillion is 18 with 24 zeros. And yet Ginther won $11 million in 1993, $2 million in 2006, $3 million in 2008 and $10 million last month. Keep reading »
Last season, “90210” teased us with a lesbian love plot between Jessica Lowndes and Rumer Willis for, oh, two episodes before Lowndes’ character, Adrianna, went straight again. But now the show’s producers say they want to “address the issue in a real and relatable way.” Translation: one of the show’s main male characters will be coming out of the closet in the fall. Entertainment Weekly had a big discussion about whether it would be Liam (Matt Lanter), Navid (Michael Steger) or Teddy (Trevor Donovan). But aren’t they forgetting about Dixon (Tristan Wilds)? Or it could be one of the adults—perhaps Principal Wilson or teacher Ryan Matthews? Way, way too many shows have used a lesbian plot to boost ratings, but far fewer have gone for a male-on-male love affair. Honestly, “Dawson’s Creek” is one of the few I can think of. So what do you think—is this a bold move or a publicity stunt? And who do you think will end up being the gay one? Leave your guesses in the comments. [EW] Keep reading »
Members of the American Psychological Association are considering renaming picky eaters “selective eaters” and classifying it in the category of eating disorders. Unlike anorexics and bulimics, selective eaters are not in life-threatening danger. However, people who continue fussy eating habits into adulthood are at risk for nutritional deficiencies. Some researchers think that this kind of eating has to do with being super-sensitive to taste and texture while others see it as a mild form of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. For reasons that are unclear to scientists, most picky eaters like french fries, chicken fingers, pizza and pasta. I think it has something to do with the fact that those foods are awesome. But, seriously, do you think “selective eating” is a legit eating disorder? [DailyMail UK] Keep reading »
