Education Connection commercials are diabolical. They run during shows like “Degrassi” and “Teen Mom” and generally contain cute young things signing far-too-catchy songs about how they used EducationConnection.com to find an online degree program. Their jingles implant themselves deep in your brain and you find yourself humming them in the shower, even if you graduated from college 10 years ago and tend to not trust websites that advertise on TV as being “free.” Now Education Connection has shifted tactics in controlling my brain. They have hired one of my faves, Shannen Doherty, to shill for them. Very crafty, Education Connection, very crafty.
After the jump, the commercial that is currently running through my head, in case you’ve ever had the
pleasure bad luck to run across it. Keep reading »
Now this is majorly awkies. A week after Kris Humphries tied the knot with Kim Kardashian, he ended up a flight from Los Angeles to New Orleans on Sunday with none other than Ray J, Kim’s ex. More specifically, the ex with whom she recorded the sex tape which made her famous and that an anonymous bidder purchased this week so that it would no longer be available online. As Page Six reports, the two guys ended up across the aisle from each other in first class. After a few minutes of silence, Kris moved to another seat. A few minutes later, Ray J walked up to him and congratulated him on his recent nuptials.
After the jump, we imagine how this conversation went. Keep reading »
Lindsay Lohan decided to get some new ink this week. And so she headed over to Shamrock Tattoos and had them tattoo a quote from Billy Joel’s “I Go To Extremes” on her side, in almost exactly the same place LeAnn Rimes tried out a tattoo of Eddie Cibrian’s wedding vows. So what does Lindsay’s new tatt say? “”Clear as a crystal, sharp as a knife I feel like I’m in the prime of my life.” Well, that’s one way to think about it. This is of course in addition to the tattoo she got last year of a quote from Marilyn Monroe, “Everyone’s a star and deserves the right to twinkle.” Meanwhile, Megan Fox wants her Marilyn Monroe tattoo removed. These celebs are so confusing. [TMZ, People] Keep reading »
Well, it’s official. The Jennifer Aniston Womb Watch has begun. Jen and her boyfriend, Justin Theroux, who never met a vintage punk rock T-shirt he didn’t like, were spotted going to the doctor this week. When they left, Jen was sucking on a lollipop. Clearly, she must be with child. Why? According to x17Online.com, “It’s common practice in gynecology offices to give candy to a woman having blood work early in her first trimester so when a nurse draws blood, the patient’s blood sugar level is high enough that she doesn’t pass out.” Mind you, it’s not actually confirmed that she went to see a gyno. She could have been at the podiatrist and stopped to buy a sucker at the gift shop. Ugh. Anyway, one thing I did learn — the next time I want to trick a dude into wondering if I’m pregnant, I’m going to dramatically pull out a Blow Pop every time I see him. Bwahahaha!

Behold, a far too awesome tweet posted on Monday by Ralph Macchio, aka “The Karate Kid.” Wow, he is right. Lady Gaga‘s male alter ego, Jo Calderone, does look an awful lot like him. Which gives me an idea for Gaga’s next over-the-top costume—a bathtub and shower curtain, naturally. [World of Wonder] Keep reading »
