Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Category Archives: News
Lo Bosworth has managed to go from funny, affable dumb-but-in-a-cute-way best friend to totally bitchy and evil in a matter of episodes. Lo reminds me of the girls in high school who, even while they’re chatting with you, were totally judging your outfit and your hair and what you were eating. On last night’s episode of The Hills, it’s the aftermath of the Lo/Audrina talk/fight, where Audrina basically told Lo she didn’t give a hoot about being friends with her and Lo passive aggressively laid the blame for their mutual awkwardness on Audrina. I sort of thought Audrina was harsh, until last night, when it because clear that Lo is just not as adorable and funny as we thought — girlfriend undresses you with her eyes, to the point where all you want to do is leave — and that’s what Audrina did.

So, that priest who organized the Miss Sister Italy contest? Well, his superiors, including the local bishop, weren’t happy with his innovative way of calling attention and praise to nuns and he had to suspend his project. “It was interpreted as more of a physical thing,” Father Antonio Rungi said. “Now, no one is saying that nuns can’t be beautiful, but I was thinking about something more complete.” [Reuters] Keep reading »
If I could still do a cartwheel without hurting myself, I would. Just watching Shawn Johnson do those amazing gymnastic-tastic moves at the Olympics made me hearken back to a time when I would spend recess walking on my hands without worrying that my shirt was covering my face instead of my mosquito bites. Sigh, those were the days. But sadly, a grade school in Australia has banned “dangerous” cartwheels and handstands in an attempt to avoid injuries. Needless to say, parents are baffled and kids are bummed. What’s next: banning writing because it could cause carpal tunnel? Outlawing hopscotch because you could sprain your ankle?
- Solange Sol-AngeL and the Hadley St. Dreams
Beyonce’s baby sister, Solange has finally stepped out of her sister’s shadow and made a record of her own. A jazzy, poppy collection of laments, it just doesn’t have the bitch slap of her sister’s dance tracks. From the sounds of songs like “Tony”, Solange has been whining behind the scenes for a while, broken-hearted, waiting to breakout. But just like most moaning for attention, who wants to listen?
The fall television season is rapidly approaching–premieres kick-off next Tuesday, just in time to recover from the holiday weekend. Yesterday, we reminded you of last season’s cliffhangers, so today we’ve compiled a list of new shows that will tickle your fancy and some you should just skip all together. Keep reading »
Really MTV? Now, I know I can hardly knock ya too much — after all, The Hills is my vice — but when I read about an upcoming show called Model Makers, I knew maybe my favorite craptastic network had gone too far. Billed as a “Transformation Make-Over” reality show, Model Makers advertised for contestants with the following ad:
Have you always wanted to model but don’t know where to start? Maybe you don’t know the right people. Maybe you are not thin enough. Maybe you are not photogenic. MODEL MAKERS will give you the ultimate make-over and transform you into the model of your dreams. Women come in all shapes and sizes, but models don’t. The term model conjures an image of stick-thin, towering beauties oozing confidence, glamour, poise and sexuality from every pore. ‘Skinny,’ ‘no body fat,’ and ‘size zero’ are the words and phrases associated with models. ‘Chubby,’ ‘well-fed,’ and ‘big-boned’ are not…
Often compared and sometimes even considered to be the male and female versions of each other, Tucker Max and Chelsea Handler are ruling the world of crude comedy. Both of their books are laugh-out-loud hilarious, but majorly offensive to the faint of heart. I would know — my friends and I used to do a Tucker Max readings in college until we were laughing so hard we couldn’t breathe and I’ve sat in bed reading Chelsea and just cracked up to myself. So what exactly do these two have in common besides their vulgar humor and exceptional gift for storytelling (and a shared publisher, Simon and Schuster)? Check it out after the jump… Keep reading »
We’re extremely excited about the return of either of our favorite shows this fall, but we’ve realized that a season finale refresher is in order. Hey, when our lives and our homies’ lives have real cliffhangers, we can’t be expected to remember months later what happened to our friends on TV, too. Read our updates just in time for the start of the fall TV season on September 2. Keep reading »
