Two Teen Girls Arrested For Pimping

Pimpin’ ain’t easy, especially when you’re a prostitute yourself. Phoenix police have arrested two 16-year-old girls for allegedly pimping other young women for prostitution. The teens, identified as Jazmine Finley and Tatiana Tye, were involved in prostitution themselves and were responsible for recruiting, teaching, and receiving money from at least five girls, ages 14 to 17. Although some of the girls were from area high schools, no prostitution crimes were committed on school grounds while the Phoenix Police Vice Unit was investigating. The investigation is ongoing, and there may be more arrests. I’m pretty sure Finley and Tye didn’t hatch this plan on their own, and were probably coerced into prostitution in a similar fashion. I’d bet the whole group is probably part of a larger prostitution ring — let’s hope the investigation goes all the way to the top. [Daily News] Keep reading »

1) Only date fat chicks.
2) Date chicks who pay for dinner. In other words, date VERY LITTLE.

Sincerely,
A guy who avoids chlamydia by not having sex with girls like you.”

Honestly, my case of chlamydia is so offended, it’s avoiding YOU. Keep reading »

  • Gwyneth Paltrow said people hate on her website Goop because they just don’t get it. She’s right. I just don’t get why I’d want to take advice from a celebrity whose life (and bank account balance!) is completely different from mine. [Perez Hilton]
  • Warner Bros. has plans to remake “The Neverending Story.” Is nothing sacred? Although I want my childhood memories to remain as they are, I do think this story would benefit from advances in CGI technology. [Dlisted]

    Top porn company, Vivid Entertainment, is currently remaking the classic “Deep Throat,” and they’re apparently offered the OctoMom, Nadya Suleman, $1 million to show her baby-maker at work on camera.

Plus, she’d also get bejeweled with the official Vivid girl necklace! How could she turn all those perks down? Keep reading »

Guess that’s why The National Enquirer is America’s best selling weekly “newspaper.” Here are our favorite outrageously LOL rag-mag cover stories…
