My older brother tortured me through childhood, but now he’s saving my lifestyle. According to a new study, I’m less likely to spawn thanks to my big bro. Yay, baby free forever! (Can you tell I don’t want kids?) Sheffield University researchers, who poured over birth, marriage, and death records, discovered that anyone, male or female, with an older male sibling is 5% less likely to have children than people with female older siblings. They also have children later in life and space their babies out. (Hmm, maybe we are just wiser?) On the downside, guys’ younger siblings are much more likely to be shorter. So that explains why my brother is over six foot while I’m one inch away from legally being a little person! The theory being tossed around is that first-born males took a toll on your mom back in the womb and researchers believe it has even more psychological implications on the siblings that came after. In time, I hope science will give me the go ahead to send my big bro my therapy bills. Meanwhile, I’m just grateful he’s helping me keep my curves childproof. There’s only room for one baby in this family — me! [Daily Mail]

This Friday, Ashley Alexandra Dupre, the call girl whose hotel trist with then-New York governor Eliot Spitzer led to the sex scandal of the year, will appear on ABC’s “20/20” for a sit-down interview with Diane Sawyer. If Spitzergate went down six months ago, why is Dupre talking now? Last week, the state of New York declared it wouldn’t be pressing charges against the Love Gov, meaning it’s unlikely Dupre will be charged for her part in the scandal, which frees the former escort to make her case to the public. On the same day, a lengthy profile of Dupre will appear in People. In excerpts from the interviews posted online, it sounds like the 23-year-old is looking to make apologies and mend her ways.

One of the biggest shockers of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” season finale was the breakup of Kim and Big Poppa, after only seven months of dating. We can’t believe she thought he would propose to her. We’re going to assume that he dumped her because, let’s face it, Kim had no reason to end things with her sugar daddy. We think the best prescription for this heartbreak and budget-ache is for Kim to jump right back into the dating pool. Check out who should be Big Poppa II after the jump. Keep reading »

Last night’s episode of “The Hills” served two purposes — to make us psyched about next week’s big “ZOMG, Justin Bobby and Lauren Conrad hooked up?!” scandal, and to show that Justin Bobby does indeed have a softer side. In the clip above, he surprises Audrina with a gift! A t-shirt! So romantic! And he wants her to wear it “with no bra please, thank you.” Well, that was a step, at least, JB. Anyway, a teaser for next week’s climactic episode, after the jump… Keep reading »
