You may find this hard to believe, but SamRo, Lindsay, Ashton, Taylor Swift, Lily Allen, and Perez Hilton aren’t the only peeps on Twitter.
We’re not saying to delete aplusk or lilyroseallen from your Twitter feed.
But you know how one of your brain cells dies every time you read a tweet from LiLo? We promise, read just one tweet from any of these 10 fabulous women who work in women’s rights activism, politics, TV, or online media, and those brain cells will grow back three-fold. Really. It is proven by science!

“Today” spoke with Sarah Palin while she was on a fishing trip in a remote village in Alaska just three days after her strange and sudden resignation. She said that after she was tapped to run for VP last August, everything changed. Now, Palin is sick of playing political games. Will she run for president in 2012? “I don’t know what the future holds,” She said. “You can’t predict what the next fish run’s going to look like, much less what’s going to happen in the next couple of years. My focus is on my state still, and it always will be. And my family and what is best for them.” So, that’s not a no? Keep reading »
On last night’s episode of “The Bachelorette,” Jillian Harris finally kicked Wes Hayden to the curb, after realizing what the rest of the universe already knew — that he had come on the show, despite having a girlfriend, solely to publicize his music career. For weeks we’ve known the first name of this mysterious girlfriend — “Laurel” — but after a little research and a tip from a reader, we know much more about her. Keep reading »
When British ambassador, diplomat, and spy Sir John Sawer isn’t in the office or engaged in covert activity, he likes to romp on the beach in super tight bathing trunks. At least, that’s what the pictures his wife posted on Facebook showed. Some Brits are freaking out that the soon-to-be prez of the Secret Intelligence Service is on Facebook in swimwear. They think it’s compromising his family’s safety, because the personal info posted about them on the site could be used by terrorists. [NY Times] Keep reading »
It’s Jennifer Saunders’ (aka the boozer mom, Edina, from “Absolutely Fabulous”) birthday. And what better way to celebrate her then by visiting MomsWhoDrinkAndSwear.com? Yes, that is an actual website that recommends Capri Sun as a mixer. There’s also Mommy Wants Vodka, Why Mom Drinks Rum and June Cleaver After A Six-Pack with the clever tagline, “Warning…Alcohol Can Lead To Pregnancy.” These internet communities have been supporting party girl mommies who feel the need to still get a little wild in order to maintain their sense of self. These forums run by proud mamas offer honest parenting advice with manifestos like, “It’s almost summer and if you are like me, you are dreading the long days trying to keep the kids from killing each other. Beer can help with this task. I recommend it.” So much for sneaking mother’s little helpers, these broads are openly downing drinks. And it’s not just how, it’s where!

There’s supposedly nothing to watch on TV in the summer, but this week is (shockingly!) looking pretty good. We’ve got VH1′s new show, “The Great Debate,” plus the season premiere of “Entourage” and finale of “Reno 911.” Also, adorable Neil Patrick Harris stops by “Top Chef Masters,” and we get more (MORE!) “Real Housewives of New Jersey” with a special lost footage episode. Am I drooling yet? Keep reading »
Time for me to sound like a broken record. Will Jillian finally realize Wes is a total d-bag on tonight’s episode of “The Bachelorette”? Considering I have been waiting, and waiting, and waiting since, like, episode one, I am going to take a wild guess and say “no.” However, the previews imply that she does. But ABC has fooled me before! Also, someone has a surprise proposal? Anyway, see you at 8 pm bitches. Keep reading »
It’s been 10 days since Michael Jackson kicked the bucket, and the tributes to him are only getting more amazing. Last week, we told you about how the Iowa State Fair had commissioned a butter sculpture of the King of Pop. Now we’re obsessed with two new tribute ideas. First, just trust me, and head to EternalMoonwalk.com. Folks from all over the globe have submitted vids of them doing (or at least attempting) the classic MJ dance move, and the creators of the site have edited into together into a never-ending moon scroll. Hot!
And we’re also digging on Larry Smith who’s created a contest to see who could write the best MJ obituary in only six words. More than 450 people entered. After the jump, check out the winners. Let’s just say they’re more touching than most of the TV coverage from last week combined. Keep reading »
Whether you’ve been out on the town, studying late, or just watching too much telly, now is a good time to start getting the recommended eight hours of sleep. Cause if you don’t, you may be hurting your heart. A new study published in the journal Sleep found that women who reported sleeping less than eight hours had high levels of Interleukin-6, which triggers inflammation and ultimately heart disease. Even those women who sleep seven hours a night are at risk. And as if women didn’t already have it harder than men in a million other ways, add this one to the list because the study didn’t find consistent results with guys. So women, instead of watching another re-run of “Scrubs” or ordering additional drinks at the bar, maybe consider getting some extra shut-eye. [BBC News] Keep reading »
