Sexy Firefights Feel The Heat

New York City is known for being dirty, but even out on Long Island, New York’s finest are apparently too filthy for a fundraiser. Officials in Long Beach have banned the sale of the volunteer firefighters’ calendar which features a dozen volunteer models straddling city property. From February, which features a lady riding a fire hose in a miniskirt, to December, which has a woman wearing nothing but oxygen tanks, the pictures were sure to raise more than charitable donations. But unless you got them while they were hot, the calendar has been pulled from shelves and all sales have been stopped. Although, perhaps there’s still hope you can sneak a peek, if you feel like going through the trash… [UPI] Keep reading »

Catching Up With The Hills

Our favorite craptastic TV show is back tonight and we’re so excited. However, just in case you haven’t been keeping as close of tabs as we have on Lauren, Heidi, Spencer, Brody, Audrina, and Whitney, here are some things you’ve might have missed:

  • According to The New York Times‘ Ginia Bellafonte, Heidi Montag is a “feminist hero” this season, because she maneuvers “her way to a bigger position at the event-planning company where she orchestrates Nascar parties, and refusing to acquiesce to the demands of her fiancé, Spencer, that she get herself home on time.” Mmm, kay. Clearly Miss Bellafonte just caught her first episode of the show. [NY Times]
  • Lauren, Whitney, and Heidi all have clothing lines. Lauren showed her collection at LA Fashion Week. We think it’s expensive Forever 21. Whitney we expect better from. Heidi’s…well, would you take fashion lessons from a woman wearing this?

    Viagra Turns 10 [Insert Lame Erection Joke Here]

    On Thursday, the little blue pill, which has been used by 35 million men around the world, turns 10, so put on a party hat and celebrate.

    Originally, doctors were testing the active ingredient in Viagra, sildenafil, as a cardiovascular drug that lowered blood pressure. But the men in those trials found that side effects of taking the drug included having erections that were firmer and longer-lasting, and they didn’t want to give back the medication. Keep reading »

    Gossip Girl Goes Gay!

    With The Hills back on MTV tonight, we might be over the real life rich kids on Gossip Girl…or so we thought! Rumor has it that one of the main male characters will be coming out of the closet on the upcoming season. Suh-weet! Our money is on Chuck Bass, because there are too many rumors about Chace Crawford (Nate) being gay in real life. Besides, self-loathing would totally explain why Chuck is such a girl-hating bastard.

    Tough Times For Gold-Diggers

    Gold-diggers don’t have it easy these days. Yvette Penichet, a 43-year-old divorcée, probably thought she was going to be rolling in cash after a few years of caring for Alfred Kreisler, a 93-year-old lawyer with $22-million in assets who Yvette married last October. But less than six months into their marriage, a judge deemed Alfred unable to manage his responsibilities as a husband after three mental health professionals confirmed that Alfred didn’t have the mental capacity to manage his own affairs or get married. At one point during their short marriage Yvette tried to withdraw $400,097.53 for a Rolls-Royce but the bank wouldn’t let her withdraw the money. It’s comforting to know that society is looking out for rich, old men. [AHN] Keep reading »

    The Daily Squeeze: Praying Mantis, Spanking, And Pamela Anderson’s New Show

  • Female praying mantises benefit substantially from consuming their male partners — females put on weight and produced more eggs using the energy from their cannibalistic after-mating meal, according to a new study. However, not every sexual encounter ended in the male’s death. About 60 percent of the time, the male praying mantis does not get eaten. [Sydney Morning Herald]
  • Analysis of several studies on spanking found that spanking can lead to problems such as delinquent and anti-social behavior in childhood, as well as aggression, criminal and anti-social behavior and spousal or child abuse as an adult. [Springfield News-Leader]
  • Pamela Anderson just signed a seven-figure deal for a reality show on E! that will debut in December. Maybe she and Tommy Lee will be remarried by then. [Hollyscoop]

    Good Dates Make Bad Boyfriends

    Don’t you just love it when a guy can adapt to any situation, charming everyone and everything, including the pants off you? Well, sadly, it turns out your hot date may turn out to be too hot to handle. A new study of 97 young singles, recently published in the journal Communications Report, found that people who are adaptable socially have a harder time having healthy relationships. A predisposition to self-monitoring may help them attract friends and lovers, but at home they’re bound to adjust themselves in the same way so their partners never get an accurate sense of how they really feel.
