Whoopi Goldberg: “The Reason Black Women Want Straight Hair Is Because It’s Manageable”


Today on “The View,” the ladies discussed “Good Hair,” a documentary by Chris Rock. Whoopi Goldberg made the startling revelation that black women don’t straighten their hair because they want to be white, but because they want manageable hair. “It’s less about the larger culture and more about ‘I don’t want to fuss with my hair,” she said. But that’s only half the story. Nowadays, we realize that beauty can come in different forms, but we can’t ignore the beauty ideals that are presented to us on a daily basis in magazines, TV, and the web. Silky, non-coarse hair is the standard. Whoopi alludes to this but ultimately skirts over it when she says that in beauty school she was taught to do everyone’s hair but black people’s.

Star In Your Very Own Erotic Novel!

For your enjoyment, here is an excerpt from Johnny Depp and Ami Angelowicz: Fever in France:

“Mon Ami.” “Bizou Johnny.” Ami dismounts her little yellow bicycle and Johnny follows. Tired from a day of cycling about town—Museé Rodin, Tour Eiffel, crêpes de sucre, and passionate kisses on Rive Gauche—Ami finally collapses in the pristine Parisian grass of the Jardin de Luxembourg, stretching and soaking in the fall sun. Johnny opens the picnic basket he has been carrying on his handlebars all day. “Madame … ” he gestures to an unopened bottle of wine ready to serve. “Wine for the lady?” It’s a fine deep red.

OK, so maybe I don’t have a future as a writer of romantic novels (and pardon my French, by the way), but I just got so carried away imagining a page from my soon-to-be published, customized erotic novel created by UStar Books and Novels. Yes, correct. You can create a novel starring you tailor-made to contain all of your most personal tastes and erotic desires. So perfect because it appeals to my romanticism and narcissism, all at once! Keep reading »

Director Of “My Nappy Roots” Sues Chris Rock Over “Good Hair”


Chris Rock‘s “Good Hair” hasn’t even come out yet, and he’s already being sued. Filmmaker Regina Kimbell filed the suit, claiming that the flick infringes on the copyright for her award-winning documentary, “My Nappy Roots: A Journey Through Black Hair-itage,” which she maybe screened for Chris Rock two years ago. The lawsuit claims that there are major similarities between the two films, including the inspiration (their daughters) and the interviews with medical pros, celebs and comedians. Plus, both filmmakers go to hair relaxer manufacturing plants and touch on India’s involvement in providing hair for weaves. Even the trailers for both films are pretty similar—just compare the “My Nappy Roots” preview above to the “Good Hair” one after the jump. [MSNBC] Keep reading »

Am I Pumped For Pam And Jim’s Wedding, Or Scared It’s The End Of “The Office”?

I’m way excited for Pam and Jim’s wedding on “The Office,” Thursday night. Almost as excited as a bridesmaid who knows she’ll be getting some from the best man. Of all the sitcom romances I’ve seen over the years, theirs is the most real, the most subtle and the most fulfilling. They’ve survived five seasons of working in the same office and their love makes even more sense now. They both broke up with fantastic people to be with each other, bought a house together at peak market value, and are still happily paying the mortgage together. They psyched us out last season when they called off their last-minute elopement at the last-last minute, when the joy of Café Disco reminded them of how much they love cheesy celebrations. To seal the deal, last season’s final episode revealed that Jim’s bun is in Pam’s oven. And now, thanks to sneak previews galore, we know that Pam and Jim are bringing all their office mates to Niagara Falls for a one-hour destination wedding special.

But am I excited … or scared? Keep reading »

Athletes Remove Their Uniforms For ESPN The Magazine

ESPN is sexing things up with its first-ever “Body Issue,” which will feature six covers, each with a different athlete in the nude: mixed martial artist Gina Carano, NASCAR driver Carl Edwards, tennis player Serena Williams, Orlando Magic basketball player Dwight Howard, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, and Sarah Reinertsen, the first amputee to compete in the Ironman Triathlon.

While this could go the way of that other sports magazine’s yearly provocative issue that features women in swimsuits, ESPN‘s special issue seems more like it’s honoring the work athletes put into developing their bodies for peak performance, rather than putting them on display in a sexual way. Though, we’re pretty sure some guys will be excited to see Williams in a new way. Keep reading for a look at triathlete Reinertsen’s cover. [HuffPo, USA Today] Keep reading »
