Did you happen to catch last night’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta”? I hope so, because it was ridiculous. RiDICKulous. Kandi threw herself a 35th birthday party and Phaedra — who has swiftly become my favorite Housewife of all time, more on that in another post — invited a special guest to entertain them. His name is Ridiculous, and he is a male stripper with a penis so big, he can suck it himself. And he does! As part of his routine! Ridiculous’s penis is so big, Bravo felt the need to blur out his bulge. Sadly, they only showed us the shocked reactions of the partygoers — not to mention uptight tantrums from Nene and Kandi’s mom — to his “performance.” I think Ridiculous seems very talented and I would be interested in reviewed his services in person some time. Call me, Phaedra. [BravoTV]
Hey, look, I don’t like snakes. I don’t like snakes because I fundamentally disagree with an animal that doesn’t have legs. I just think that is WRONG, mmkay? But you know what? Live and let live. Sandra, as featured in Animal Planet’s “My Extreme Animal Phobia,” happens to think that kittens are the devil’s work. As Sandra’s not-very-sympathetic friend explains, “It’s like, when she hears ‘meow,’ it’s like she starts crying. I’m like, are you SERIOUS?” Hey, one woman’s adorable fluff ball is another woman’s waking nightmare or whatever. [YouTube]
This year, it appears our Christmas wishes have come early. The long-awaited return of caustic British series “Absolutely Fabulous” is upon us, and we’ve got a tiny, tiny sneak peak of what’s to come during their two-part holiday special. [ONTD]
We’re suckers for an indie rom-com, especially one that makes us wistfully nostalgic about our misfit teenage years. “The Art of Getting By,” out on DVD 11/29, is just that kind of film. Freddie Highmore (the now grown-up kid from “Finding Neverland”) is George, a fatalistic but artistically talented high school senior in New York City who is on the verge of failing. It’s only when he meets smart and beautiful Sally (played by Emma Roberts) that George slowly starts to find motivation to realize his potential. Sort of a modern day “My So-Called Life” meets John Hughes, “The Art of Getting By” is an endearing love story that’s not to be missed.
Boo. The long weekend is coming to a close. This video of a kitten riding a turtle kinda sorta cheered me up. [Buzzfeed]
Holy disturbing, Batman! These little nuggets are much too small to be sucking on the cancer sticks! Thankfully photographer Frieke Janssen didn’t give the children real cigarettes or cigars — they are “smoking” cheese. The artist was inspired, apparently, by that two-year-old boy in Indonesia who smoked 40 cigarettes a day. The depressing thing is, though, that lots of people won’t realize smoking is gross at any age. [Neatorama] Keep reading »
