Sarah Jessica Parker is looking to capitalize on her “Sex and the City” role as long as she can, apparently — and more power to her, but I feel like maybe there’s classier ways to do it than trespassing on 66 Perry Street to do an impromptu Instagram photoshoot for her new shoe line.
The owners of the brownstone have had enough problems with tourists that they’ve had to put up a chain bearing a sign that reads “Do NOT go on staircase please.” SATC tourists are still a problem for the block — the president of the Perry Street Association told Page Six that the situation is “intense,” adding that “people who live here get upset that the sidewalks are constantly jammed.” Keep reading »
War Machine, or Jonathon Koppenhaver — the MMA fighter who beat his ex-girlfriend/model/porn star Christy Mack within inches of her life in August this year — tried to commit suicide by hanging in his jail cell last week. TMZ obtained a copy of the suicide note he left, and MMANews transcribed it (h/t Gawker for the links).
In the note, Koppenhaver claims that “society has killed men.” Robyn Pennacchia at Death and Taxes points out that what constitutes “men,” to Koppenhaver, is rapists: He claimed on Twitter that he raped Mack, and that “Real men rape.” The feminist bitch inside me is itching to say this, so I’ll just give it air: Men’s Rights Activists or Red Pill-ers, I would never claim that “real” men rape, or that all men are rapists, or that any sexual act with a man is by default rape, or that all men want to rape, or that all men should rape. No, that’s one of your own making that claim. If you want to hate feminists because you perceive us as stereotyping men as rapists, go ahead and hate yourselves, too. Keep reading »
Hell yes to our incredibly smooth President. Remember that time that he totally owned the birthers at the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner literally a day before Osama Bin Laden was tracked down and killed? If you don’t, enjoy it. It’s hilarious.
Anyway, if he can keep his cool under a situation like that, it’s no wonder he can crack jokes when someone starts acting silly to him while he’s trying to vote. President Obama went to the polls early in Illinois yesterday and was heckled by a man named Mike Jones, who told the President not to touch his girlfriend, who was in the booth next to Obama. “I really wasn’t planning on it,” Obama responded, then began talking to the woman in question, Aia Cooper. “Now you’ll be going back home, talking to your friends about this. ‘I can’t believe Mike, he’s such a fool.’” Keep reading »
