Political Conventions And Call Girls

Cities benefit big time when they host major events like the Olympics. The upcoming Republican and Democratic National Conventions are two such happenings that will bring in money to more than just the restaurant and hotel businesses. A rather disturbing ABC News article says that prostitution in Denver and Minneapolis will spike during the political conventions in the coming weeks. Apparently, there are ads on the Minneapolis-area Craigslist looking for “hostesses” to help entertain “high-end clients” during the Republican National Convention, which starts September 1. And, over on the Denver section of Craigslist, women are using the convention to push their services under titles like “DNC Delight” and “Help me celebrate democracy.” Has no one learned their lesson from former N.Y. Governor Eliot Spitzer? Seriously. [ABC News] Keep reading »

The Bachelor: Where Are They Now?

ABC is letting me down. Following up Matt Grant, the hot British guy, with rejected Bachelorette contestant Jason Mesnick for the next season of The Bachelor is such a huge letdown. I know plenty of other women who watched the show, gag, liked the guy, but I found him to be wimpy, and mealy-mouthed, and completely devoid of charm and dazzle. Though I know the producers are hoping to go in a new direction by having a single dad as The Bach, I just don’t buy this as a good spin for a reality TV dating show. It’s irresponsible for a father to date that many women on national TV and then ask one of them to marry him at the end, without having the child get to know what could be his new mommy. But whatevs. I think I am just upset that the next season of The Bachelor is going to be devoid of sex appeal. Keep reading »

    Project Runway: What A Drag!

    Designs We Hated [From Left]: Jerell’s Glittery Green Number; Daniel’s Sorbet Meltdown; Keith’s Filthy Howard the Duck Thing (Like Nina Garcia said, it is quite a puzzle)

    On this week’s episode the designers were challenged to create an outfit for drag queens. Although this was a new challenge, not a recycle bin rescue from a previous season, I wasn’t really excited to watch it. I had a hard time figuring out why I should care.The best part of Runway for me is the fashion and this time it wasn’t fashion, but theatrics. And not haute couture theatrics that must convey a fashion aesthetic and drama. I get that the queens each have a character and their costumes must portray that character, but we learned very little about who these gals are. Sure, each of them had a catch phrase and a cool name, but there has to be more. I would have loved to learn how the queens get into drag because as guest judge RuPaul explained, “Drag is all smoke and mirrors.” But all we learned was that they stuff their bras, duh, and they must hide the “candy” (that is exactly what you think it is).

    We See Chick Flicks: Vicky Cristina Barcelona

    Starring Rebecca Hall, Scarlett Johansson, Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem
    Written and Directed by Woody Allen

    Woody Allen is a hit or miss type of genius – critics loved Annie Hall and Match Point, but hated Cassandra’s Dream and Melinda and Melinda. His movies either blow your mind or make you feel like you’ve blown 12 bucks at the theater. That being said, I’m a total Woody Allen neophyte, which is strange considering I’m a neurotic native New Yorker. To be honest, at first, there was nothing drawing me to Vicky Cristina Barcelona – I’m not particularly into the actors, didn’t think there was an exciting storyline, etcetera. But the hype got the better of me, so I decided to pop my Woody Allen cherry after all. Keep reading »

    Hallmark To Sell Same-Sex Marriage Cards

    Hallmark, the nation’s largest greeting card company, is rolling out four same-sex marriage cards in response to consumer demand. The cards, which feature two tuxedos, overlapping hearts, or intertwined flowers are neutral, with no actual mention of weddings or marriage, so they’ll still be suitable in states where same-sex marriage hasn’t been legally recognized — every one but Massachusetts and California. While it’s wonderful that such a huge corporation is recognizing this group, the cards won’t necessarily make it into all Hallmark stores, as each can choose whether or not they want to add the cards to their selection. So, if a Hallmark’s store owner is against homosexuality, his customers might not have access to these cards, kind of like how some pharmacies refuse to fill birth control prescriptions because their owners don’t agree with their use.
