Have I mentioned that I have a mild phobia of public restrooms? I believe I have. I’m not scared of them per se, it’s just that I want to be alone when I go to the bathroom. Why should I be forced to share? It’s not cool. Since my single bathroom utopia is hard to find (unless I’m at home), I have to find some way to make this public restroom thing work. Japanese inventors came up with a solution for concealing embarrassing bathroom noises.The Eco-Otome Toilet Sound Blocker is an adorable little gadget that mimics the sound of a flushing toilet for 25 seconds. Just put it on your keychain and push the button until you or the other bathroom goer is done doing da business. A step in the right direction for bathroom-phobes. If only it didn’t cost $20.

After Round One of our Real March Madness competition, Courtney Robertson’s man-ipulating ways stole Phaedra Parks’ relatively harmless thunder. Meanwhile, Arizona’s desire to allow doctors to lie to pregnant women about fetal birth defects trumped Virginia, with their fetal personhood and transvaginal ultrasound bills. At the end of the day, which is the crazier threat?

Look, I can’t say for sure that Hollywood’s heavy-hitters were inspired by my and Amelia’s “Twinsing” post. But I will say that it seems like a bit more than just a coincidence that mere weeks after we attempted to ignite a photo trend in “Twinsing,” it was announced that Danny Devito, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Eddie Murphy will star in a sequel to the classic 1988 movie called “Triplets.” Oh yeah that’s right, Eddie Murphy will play Arnie and Danny’s third brother. Oh, hell. This sounds like a great idea. Where do I sign up? [Dlisted]
“‘Sex and the City’ [is] not necessarily an influence on the show, but it’s an influence on the girls in the show and we know the show couldn’t exist without it because these girls wouldn’t exist without it. They wouldn’t have necessarily had the drive to move to New York and try to live this specific life if they hadn’t watched ‘Sex and the City’ marathons behind their parents’ backs. … The only thing we can hope to do is a different version of a ‘Sex and the City’ story. We’ve actually stopped allowing people in in the writer’s room to go, ‘Actually that’s an episode of “Sex and the City.” It’s the same as going, ‘Actually that’s an episode of “Seinfeld,”‘ because everyone on ‘Seinfeld’ did everything there is to do in New York City. They’ve had every adventure possible.”
– Lena Dunham, the writer, director and star of the upcoming HBO show “Girls,” talked to Heeb about references her show will make to its Botoxed big sister, “Sex and the City.” It’s cool that she’s acknowledging her predecessor, yet I don’t understand why any show that also happens to star a group of women has to automatically be similar in some way, or even compared in some way, to “SATC.” There’s a lot more demographics to represent not only in NYC, but in life. I’ve only seen the same preview clips of “Girls” that everyone else has, but what I really like about it is how it feels like a fresh, new story being told … right? [Heeb Magazine]
After watching Ben Flajnik flip his hair and stare off into the distance for an entire season, we are desperate to see something different on “The Bachelor.” We have been desperate for a good “Bachelor” since Charlie O’Connell. And that was like four seasons ago. And he wasn’t even that great. It’s about time that “The Bachelor” franchise diversify. Word on the street is that Lamar Hurd, a Portland-based sportscaster may be the first black “Bachelor.” Hot, humble, kind and looks amazing with his shirt off. Oh God yes, please. “Bachelor” franchise, hear our plea: cast Lamar! There is room for all types of Bachelors and Bachelorettes on your show. Some of our suggestions after the jump.
