In Round One of our Real March Madness, Carrie, the cancer-stricken woman who treated her illness with medically-unproven “urine therapy,” won the “Strange Addiction” matchup, while Courtney Stodden trounced Courtney Love in the battle of the Crazy Courtneys. Now the pair face off in Round Two. If they have anything in common, besides being nutso, I’d say it’s that both are extremely devoted to their crazy choices in life — Carrie stands by her decision to ingest urine through every bodily orifice, while Courtney Stodden married way, way older Doug Hutchison and hasn’t looked back. So who wins this battle? Vote!

Well, this might be the strangest, if not the funniest, “Downton Abbey” spoof. Richard Kind and a host of other semi-recognizable actors star in “Downton Arby’s” about a noble family about to lose their Arby’s franchise. Sybil is still flirting with the help (this time, a curly fry guy), Bates and Anna fall in love at the griddle, O’Brien and Thomas are conniving drive-thru tellers, and Edith is still kind of pathetic and overlooked. Just like the real “Downton,” only with more greasy roast beef. Check out the video after the jump! [The FW.com]

There are some achievements in life that are worthy of beaming pride and perhaps a little bragging. Winning the Nobel Peace Prize! Selling your first novel! Getting a cool new job! And then there are some achievements in life that are not so much “achievements” as fairly normal life experiences that feel just as victorious, that have you beaming with pride, and bragging to anyone who’ll listen (including on Facebook and Twitter). Here are five moments of pride that disproportionate to what I’ve actually achieved. Keep reading »
Look, there’s no doubt I support animal rights. I’m a vegan. I don’t wear fur and only wear vintage leather. However, I feel very strange about animal rights organization PETA using Courtney Stodden as their spokeslady. I mean, it’s great that Courtney adopted her dog Bazaar from a shelter eight years ago, and “saturates” him with love. And also great that she claims she’s never eaten a hamburger and has recently become a vegetarian. But uh, is the lucite heels wearing, 17-year-old child bride really the best spokesperson for animals? Was Jason Lee or Alicia Silverstone busy that day?
The other day, I innocently clicked through to National Public Radio’s Facebook page and saw this picture splashed across the top. Oh my, Adam Levine is looking lovelier than usual, I thought, before realizing that it wasn’t Adam Levine, sexy pop star, it was Ari Shapiro, sexy White House correspondent for NPR News. This got me wondering what other gorgeous guys are lurking behind the NPR microphones. I did a little research and came up with 8 hunky reporters, editors, contributors, and producers.

High fashion often meets unrelated subjects — cats, for instance — so it technically shouldn’t come as a surprise that designer and illustrator John Woo has created a series of drawings that merges, of all things, characters from Star Wars with some of fashion’s finest. I’m not what you would call a fan of the saga, so I may not be able to fully appreciate the nuances of the series, but I’m still pretty damn entertained (not to mention impressed) by the artist’s depictions. Hello, Jar Jar Binks sporting Margiela streetwear swag? Darth Vader in a Band of Outsiders suit jacket and cuffed khakis? What’s not to love? [The Gloss]
