PETA Video Game Hunts Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin has gotten a ton of bad press: her teen daughter’s pregnancy, her pricey wardrobe (especially the hooker boots), her future grandma-in-law — who was just arrested on six felony drug charges that indicate she was both manufacturing and distributing an illegal substance — her oil drilling payouts, and that little Hustler porno “Nailin’ Paylin”. Well, after all that, the woman is finally trying to fight back –over what, you ask? Find out, after the jump… Keep reading »

8 Ways President Obama Will Improve Your Sex Life

We got a glimpse last week of President-elect Barack Obama out of his suit and tie — totally shirtless. And it was a wonderful sight.

Prescription Eyelash Enhancer Coming Soon

If thickening and lengthening mascaras just aren’t enough to make your lashes look all fluttery, a savior is on its way. A new drug called Latisse was recently approved and will soon be available with a prescription. The cream supposedly boosts lash length and thickness by encouraging hair follicles’ regrowth, but any part of the body exposed to the cream could show hair growth. We’ll be sticking to our fave OTC lash-enhancer, CoverGirl LashBlast. That stuff works wonders without the danger of growing extra, unwanted hair. [MarieClaire.co.uk] Keep reading »

Kate And Leo Don’t TiVo “Titantic” Either!

I want to read Richard Yates’ “Revolutionary Road” before I see the film starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, but I hope I can get through it quickly, based on this adorable interview with the pair on “The Today Show” last week.

Publication Of Holocaust Memoir, Loved By Oprah, Canceled

Berkley Books, an imprint of large book publisher, Penguin, has canceled the publication of the Oprah-endorsed Holocaust memoir, “Angel at the Fence,” after allegations of its validity were made by Jewish groups, family, and friends. “Angel at the Fence” was supposed to come out in February, and told the love story of Herman and Rosa Rosenblat — in the memoir, Mr. Rosenblat claimed that his life was saved when young Rosa (then Roma Radzicky, also a prisoner at the concentration camp) threw him apples over a fence to prevent him from starving. Rosenblat said they found each other years later, set up on a blind date. “I wanted to bring happiness to people,” Rosenblat said in a statement issued Saturday through his agent, Andrea Hurst. “I brought hope to a lot of people. My motivation was to make good in this world.”

Though there is no doubt Rosenblat was a Holocaust concentration camp survivor, serious doubts exist that he could have met his wife in the ways he describes in the book. Thus, Jewish groups and scholars worry that such inaccuracies would only encourage Holocaust deniers. Keep reading »
