“It is an important thing to instill in a younger generation about the impact of rape, the lasting impact of rape. Children from grade school to high school to college are incredibly susceptible and incredibly malleable, as we all know. To get them early, to teach them about the facts and figures and other realities of rape is key. It is an important issue to me as not only a man, but as an educator, as a human being and as a person on this planet.”
— Jon Hamm melts my heart a little more (proving such a thing is possible). Seriously, is this man for real?! All that handsome, all that talent, and he’s a feminist? Jon spoke yesterday at a benefit brunch for the Rape Treatment Center in Beverly Hills, where he emphasized imparting good values on children while they are young. He’s 100 percent correct here and I’m psyched there’s such a prominent celebrity who gets it.
After the jump, Jon Hamm also opened up about the lack of male role models in his life and how it impacted him: Keep reading »
Holly Madison is starring in “Peepshow,” and fully recognizes that her breasts are her “primary money makers” right now. That’s why she has taken out an insurance policy to the tune of $1 million with insurance company Lloyd’s of London to protect them. “I’ve heard about people getting body parts insured and I thought, why not?, because if anything happened to my boobs, I’d be out for a few months and I’d probably be out a million dollars,” she said. “I thought I’d cover my assets.” [People]

Rumors are flying fast and furious about the state of Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore‘s marriage. Star magazine alleges that the couple has been living apart for months—Kutcher filming “Two and a Half Men” in Los Angeles while Moore is in New York making “Magic Mike“—and that they are really over. A source told the magazine, “[They're] just putting on a show until they officially split.” The mag predicts a bitter divorce over the couple’s $290 million in assets. I’m still hoping all this is totally false—I’ve always loved Aston and Demi together. But I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
Meanwhile, a 23-year-old blonde alleges that she hooked up with Kutcher a week ago, which happened to be Ashton and Demi’s six year anniversary. So who is this girl Ashton allegedly slept with? Find out all about Sara Leal after the jump.

“Step … Stepmother, Stepfather, Stepchildren—the word ‘step’ can take on such a negative connotation to so many in our society. A family is a family. In my eyes, there’s no ‘step’ about it … It’s not easy being a stepparent, taking on a mother or father role in your new blended family and household. It can be incredibly intimidating … One thing that I know is, I will never replace their mother. I would never try. I will however love them with all I have and do everything in my power to help raise them in a loving, safe and proper environment … These two little boys came into my life for a reason and I think I came into theirs for a reason, too.”
—LeAnn Rimes writes on her blog her assorted thoughts on being a stepmom to Eddie Cibrian’s two sons. Personally, I think her attitude on this is pretty great. What do you think? [via Huffington Post]
No matter that in the real world women come in a bevy of shapes and sizes, in the model world, you’re either “regular” or “plus-size.” And for the past several years, model Crystal Renn has been at the top of the plus-size game. But Renn has been catching flack lately for a rather surprising reason: some say she’s not plus-size enough. In yesterday’s Daily Mail, the model was criticized for appearing at a Metropolitan Opera opening in a slinky gold number, “now virtually unrecognisable from her days of ‘big’ modeling.” Nevermind that Renn is still not considered thin enough to model in the ultra-warped world of “regular” modeling, it seems Renn and her new, slimmer figure just can’t seem to win. Where critics of plus-size models say they provide unhealthy role models, others claim Renn’s sold out from her original plus-size form.
Earlier this year, Renn addressed her weight loss in an interview with Ford models. “A lot of people wanted to point their finger at somebody. They wanted to find a conspiracy when there actually was none,” she said. “I feel pressure probably more than any place from the public and the media. I think by placing a title on my head—which is plus-size—and then the picture that these people have created in their mind about what plus-size actually is, I basically fail you just with that, because I couldn’t possibly live up to that.”
