Zergnet: Simply Irresistible

Q: What do you do when someone bites it right before your eyes? A: Laugh. Obviously. I fully condone this behavior and I have every right to considering that I am usually the one tripping and falling. I am a proud klutz and I love it when people support my accidents with hearty laughter. It makes the aftermath less embarrassing.
For example, Antonio Banderas is totally not handling Salma Hayek’s fall correctly. If he’s not going to help her, he should at least have a giggle! Instead he’s looking away. How he manages, I don’t know — the look on her face is just so expressive! It’s okay, I had a hearty laugh on his behalf (once I found out that Salma was fine, of course). Keep clicking for some more celebs biting it. It’s OK to laugh. I promise.
“Fatism is an ‘ism’ like any other, but our culture turns a blind eye toward that particular version of separatism. Perhaps it is our fear of our own frailties and humanity that makes us want to turn the other gaunt cheek away from the fat we see. If we move away from it, we don’t have to look at these complexities within ourselves. Perhaps it’s easier to label a fat person with qualities we don’t like in ourselves than to want to find out more about what their vulnerabilities are and what makes them tick. … So for the love of being part of this larger conversation around addressing the pop-culture-sanctioned-fatism, next time we see someone who is yo-yo dieting and has a tortured relationship with food and their body, rather than make fun of them, I beseech us all to pause and offer a little curiosity for what lurks underneath, and, if appropriate, maybe even move toward it.”
– Alanis Morissette has written a really smart and compelling piece for iVillage about the “double-edged ‘butter knife’ of weight perception” in America and her own struggles with it. This is just a snippet but the whole piece is worth a read! [iVillage]
It’s that time of year … time to sit around the dinner table with our loved ones, carve some turkey, and give thanks for the celebs who made our lives better this year.
- I can’t, Kmart in Australia. I just can’t. Why the heck were you selling girls’ underwear with the slogan “I Love Rich Boys” written on them? The panties that read “I Heart Boys In Uniform” and “Call Me” are probably inappropriate for young girls as well — although I’m not clear how “young” we are tal;king — but they’re somewhat tamer. Fail, Kmart in Australia, just fail. [NYmag.com]
- NBC has ordered a pilot for Sarah Silverman’s new sitcom which will be “loosely based on Silverman’s life.” Great, who gets to play her ex-boyfriend Jimmy Kimmel? [AV Club]
- Justin Bieber’s paternity test to prove he’s not the father of fan Mariah Yeater’s baby simply involved a doctor swabbing the inside of his mouth, you sicko. [People]
- Selena Gomez joined Taylor Swift onstage last night and the two sang a duet of Selena’s song “Who Says.” Don’t tell anyone, but I am secretly jealz of their friendship. [The Insider] Keep reading »
