Something I noticed when I was looking for pictures of Mr. and Mrs. McCain this morning — Cindy hasn’t always looked like such a — to quote her husband — trollop. On the left is Cindy back in 2004. On the right is Cindy a few months ago. Prior to 2004, Cindy even rocked a grey pageboy! How a woman changes when she gets hold of a tube of black liquid liner…. Keep reading »
Well, Kelly, it’s been fun. We’re going to miss the hard-partying and lack of interest in The Bachelor. Kelly seems to have forgotten what the premise of the show is — fight for The Bach, bitches, even though you won’t end up with jack in the end — because she said in one of her little tete-a-tetes with the camera that she wasn’t going to be one of those women who just sits there and says “Pick me Matt!” And he didn’t! But that was after she busted open her top for him and showed off her rather ample decolletage, swaddled in a bejeweled bra. Damn, I loved Kelly. I always loved the bachelorettes that just don’t give a crap and only came for the free champagne. When is one of them going to win?
Only seven women remain! Marshana (!!!), Amanda R., Robin, Shayne, Noelle, Denise, and Chelsea. Who will get drunk, show off their ta-tas, and be eliminated next week? [ABC: The Bachelor] Keep reading »
On my way home, during my lunch hour, when my mom comes to visit, post any of my numerous break ups, pre-any hot dates, if I have an upcoming party, if it rains, if the weather is fine, no matter whatâ€¦I always want to do one thing: SHOP! I have a couple credit cards and a habit- luckily it’s still legal or Iâ€™d be writing this from jail. (At one point, a vintage store kept a rack on the side for meâ€¦oh those were the days.) While I thought my penchant for garments made me stylish, it actually seems like it could be my single gal substitute for sex. According to a new study conducted by a retailer in Britain, 78% of the 2,000 people they surveyed found shopping more gratifying than sex. Me? I know I’m as good in bed as I am for the economyâ€¦.

A couple in Vallejo, CA, had a rowdy party after their wedding on Saturday. The police came twice and, supposedly, the groom took off his shirt and approached an officer like he wanted to fight. The cop pulled a Taser on him, the groom and a cousin were arrested, and the bride was taken into custody on suspicion of public intoxication. This sets a new standard for wedding receptions: It’s not a party unless someone, preferably a member of the bridal party, gets tased. [CNN] Keep reading »
Itâ€™s alive, itâ€™s aliiiiiiive! German scientists have successful inseminated rats with Franken-sperm, the first lab grown man-juice. Genetics researchers at the University of Goettingen have developed fetuses through embryonic stem cells. Which means if they can transfer this technology to humans, getting pregnant could come self-contained in a chickâ€™s package with no male necessary. While this process wonâ€™t give men a biological tie to the child, it could conceive one from two women, using the stem cells from one lady and the egg from the other. Amazing! The process is still a little shaky, as only 12 out of 65 mice eggs were actually fertilized, and of those, seven died within five months of birth. So, the docs are working out the kinks in the faux-sperm system and a team is even going to England to begin research with human stem cells, since Germany has laws preventing mad scientists from using people parts that way. Dr. Wolfgang Engel is hopeful and promises, “If it works in the mouse, I’m sure it will also work in the human.” [The Sydney Morning Herald]

Last week, we saw that the less-populated West tends to be more man-filled than the East coast. Now, data from Australia is beginning to make us wonder whether highly populated areas, aka cities, are bad for relationships in general. According to census figures from Australia, in populations of more than 100,000 people, 12.5 percent of women and 9.6 percent of men were from broken marriages. Rural areas of 200 people or less had the lowest proportion of divorced or separated women. This raises a many questions. Is there something about city life that causes people to divorce, or are the type of people who would get divorced anyway drawn to city living? Do less people get divorced in the country because there are fewer options and you’d better stay with what you’ve got if you want anything at all? [SMH.com.au] Keep reading »
You can laugh at this statement, but there’s a lot to be learned from The Hills about dating and family etiquette. For example:
Heidi and Lauren stopped being friends because Lauren hated Heidi’s boyfriend, an all-too-familiar incident in many women’s real lives. Question posed: Should you stick by a friend whose boyfriend hates your guts and vice versa?
Heidi and Audrina stopped being friends when Audrina had to choose sides. Question posed: Do you have to choose sides in a girl fight?
Spencer and Brody’s long friendship broke up because Brody remained pals with Lauren. Question posed: Are guys as immature as girls when it comes to the whole “your enemy is my enemy” nonsense?
Spencer’s sister Stephanie initially hated Lauren because of her brother’s war with Lauren. Question posed: Does blood loyalty mean you have to get involved in petty disputes?
Stephanie is now friends with both Heidi and Lauren, much to Heidi and Spencer’s chagrin. Question posed: Are you a traitor if you don’t think blood is thicker than water in the shallow pools of Hollywood?

When we read the April issue of Marie Claire, we seriously bugged out over the story, “My Sister The Porn Star” by Robert Radin. First of all, it was depressing and creepy, two words we’re not used to associating with a fashion-happy lady mag. Second of all, it kind of pissed us off that the writer of the story seemed to be weirdly voyeuristic and, dare we say it, pervy about discovering that his sister was an adult film star. While the article went into the details of Radin’s sister’s tragic life, it didn’t give any insight into whether, you know, he gave a crap if she was dead or alive. Her story seemed like a quick and easy way for him to make a quick buck. Thankfully, we’re not alone in this sentiment. Nerve sums it up very nicely. Keep reading »
Being the Prez is a stressful job. It might even take a toll on your marriage, as the Clintons have proved. Cindy McCain may want to book a few therapy appointments in advance, since her husband, John McCain, is the Republican nominee. A new book, The Real McCain by Cliff Schecter, says that in 1992 McCain called Cindy “a c*nt” after she jokingly made a comment about his thinning hair.
At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain’s hair and said, ‘You’re getting a little thin up there.’ McCain’s face reddened, and he responded, ‘At least I don’t plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt.’ McCain’s excuse was that it had been a long day.”
Ruh-roh! In fairness, we do think Cindy is a little heavy-handed with the black eyeliner, but lord, calling your wife, any woman for that matter, the c-word is on the short list of words men should be castrated for using. That’s our c-word, by the way. [Feministing] Keep reading »
