Sigh. Seriously, I think the hardest part of my job is picking the winners for our various giveaways. You guys post such awesome answers, I end up having to seek second and third opinions on who should take home the booty. Last week, I asked you to tell me your ultimate summer beach bag essentials, and the commenter with the best/most creative answer would score a limited edition Hayden-Harnett scarf and an autographed copy of Brenda Novak’s Inside. All of your answers certainly gave me great ideas for what I should throw in my beach bag this weekend (it’s gonna be 80 degrees and sunny, holla!). But when it came to picking a winner, I had to go with the commenter who had the most unique story behind their ultimate beach bag necessity. Check out the winning comment, after the jump!

It’s a big day for the Kardashian klan. Not only is Kim engaged—and to Kris Humphries, whose name conveniently begins with a ‘K’—but Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe just announced that they’ve written their first novel. Kim blogged, “We are releasing a novel with William Morrow and we want you to name it! The novel is based on our lives but we’ve added a lot of crazy fictional twists and turns. You’ll have to decide for yourself which story lines are true to life, and which ones we dreamed up. LOL.” That could make for a good drinking game.
But life gets even more exciting. Apparently, the sisters are holding a contest to name the book. Keep reading »

“[A] big muscular guy, a high school senior … raped me [when I was 12]. It was quick, not pleasant. I was too scared to tell anyone. ‘Tell anyone,’ he warned, ‘and you’ll never have another friend in this school. I’ll ruin your f***in’ reputation’ … This is a memory I suppressed until only a few years ago when, in rehab, it came flooding back. Therapy will do that to you.”
—An excerpt from Stone Temple Pilots/ Velvet Revolver singer, Scott Weiland‘s new memoir, Not Dead & Not For Sale. It’s very rare for famous men to come forward and talk about sexual abuse and assault. It’s hard for anyone to do so, but there seems to be more of a stigma for men. I commend his bravery for choosing to write about his rape. This book should be an interesting read — apparently it also include an anecdote about Scott getting high and almost getting romantically involved with Courtney Love. Yikes. [Spin] Keep reading »
Copy that, John Waters. Reading is sexy. Books are like an aphrodisiac to me. I don’t think I would even be able to do it with a guy who didn’t have books. [Rachel Profiling] Keep reading »
Some articles require a lengthy explanation in order to give the reader a context in which to view them. This is not one of those. What I am doing here is simple: I’m proving, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that romance guru and best-selling author of 1001 Ways to be Romantic, Gregory J.P. Godek is the stupidest, laziest waste of stem cells to ever “write” a book. Every time Godek’s semeny, pizza-covered fingers touch his keyboard, the world’s collective I.Q. drops.
