Gay Couples In Texas Can’t Get Divorced

Texan conservatives need to make up their mind—first they banned gay marriage, then they accidentally banned straight marriage by writing, “This state … may not create or recognize any legal status identical or similar to marriage” and leaving out the gay part. Now they’re banning gay divorce! You would think that they would be psyched at the chance to keep a homosexual couple apart, but the decision reads, “A person does not and cannot seek a divorce without simultaneously asserting the existence and validity of a lawful marriage. Texas law, as embodied in our constitution and statutes, requires that a valid marriage must be a union of one man and one woman, and only when a union comprises one man and one woman can there be a divorce under Texas law.” This is super inconvenient for the Dallas couple who got legally married in Massachusetts four years ago and want to get divorced now.

Woman Dies In Ex-Boyfriend’s Chimney

You may have done some insane things to win back an ex-boyfriend, but we’re betting you’ve never done anything as crazy as Californian woman Jacquelyn Kotarac, who tried to get into her ex-boyfriend’s house by wriggling down the damn chimney. The only problem? Jacquelyn got stuck on the way down and DIED. Keep reading »

Vanity Fair Accuses Sarah Palin Of Relying On A “Push-Up Bra” To Get What She Wants

Vanity Fair has a new smear piece about Sarah Palin and thankfully this one was not dictated by Levi Johnston. According to this latest hit job, Alaska’s most famous pitbull in lipstick offered to get Bristol Palin and Levi married “if it would be good for the campaign,” threatens her employees, and is prone to ‘F-word’-filled arguments with her husband, Todd. My personal favorite part of the piece is where Levi extends a private apology to the Palins and the hockey mom asks him if he’s wearing “a wire” and if she is being recorded. (He was not.) That public apology that Levi issued? Allegedly, it was written by Todd Palin himself. Levi, through his lawyer, told Vanity Fair, “I had nothing to do with putting that statement together.”

But that’s not all … Keep reading »

Facebook Ad For Pedophiles?

You know I love the Facebook. It’s how I keep in touch with friends from high school, post my sexiest/most drunken photos, and also apparently get solicited to make my crotch ready for a pedo … seriously, WTF is this?! When I saw this ad pop up on my personal profile page, my jaw dropped. Do I want to be hairless like a baby? Um, NO! Shudder. I’m going hippie from now on. Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: What Meghan McCain Thinks Of Sarah Palin

  • Meghan McCain’s new book, Dirty Sexy Politics, is out today. Sen. John McCain’s daughter speaks to “Good Morning America” about being a young Republican woman and opens up for the first time about Sarah Palin. “I respect [Palin] as a feminist, as a Republican feminist,” Meghan says. Meghan also talks about how when Bristol Palin’s pregnancy came to light, she felt that the campaign ran the risk of glamorizing teen pregnancy. “I just think the pro-abstinence campaign isn’t necessarily the most effective one,” McCain says.

  • The model Bar Refaeli — or someone pretending to be Bar Refaeli — tweeted on Sunday and Monday about starving models and plastic surgery, but her agency ONE Management claims she has neither a Twitter nor a Tumblr blog and “these statements are made by imposters.” On Sunday she allegedly tweeted, “Seriously plastic surgery is not helping your impact on young women or your looks! Some people are addicted to drugs and others are addicted to alcohol. Me? I’m addicted to pomegranate juice.” On Monday, Refaeli allegedly tweeted: “I get so sad when I see 15 year old pale extremely skinny models at the agency looking all shaky and hungry … when will it end?” The tweets were linked to her official Tumblr account. As of right now, the Twitter feed has since been changed to be protected and the page for the Tumblr has disappeared. [Huffington Post]

Next Up In Switzerland: Drive-In Sex Boxes

Switzerland is totally cutting edge when it comes to sex accouterments. A couple weeks ago, the country announced it would begin selling pregnancy tests in vending machines. Its latest sex-nological improvement will be the addition of drive-in sex boxes in Zurich’s red-light district. What exactly is a drive-in sex box, you ask? It’s like a parking spot surrounded by metal fences where Johns can park while being “serviced.” The idea is that it would give prostitutes more privacy to work in broad daylight and protect nearby residents from having to see anything lewd. It would be even cooler if they had movies playing in there, too. Just a suggestion. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
