It turns out that fake butts and boobs are really versatile — and operate as great storage units. A 33-year-old Italian model was arrested and charged with smuggling more than five pounds of cocaine in her fake breasts and in her fake butt. Security officers stopped the woman at the airport after she failed to explain what she had been doing during her trip to South America. The woman apparently thought that wearing a tight fitting shirt would help get her through customs faster (ah, that old gem), but it only served to draw more attention to her, um, illegal assets. “They stopped her for questioning because she was so alluring and her story about why she was in South America just fell apart,” said Antonio Di Greco, police chief at Fiumicino airport. The woman, whose identity has been concealed, was charged with international drug trafficking and is currently being held at the Rome airport. So much for those implants paying for themselves.

Let’s do the Time Warp, yeaaaah!

Amelia has gone back in time and unearthed a video of Baby Jessica Wakeman (real name: Riley), who is just as opinionated as she is in adult form. Riley is seen shopping in a toy store, with a man I presume is her father, when she goes off on a rant about how pink is not just for girls. You tell ‘em, Riley! And in another 15 years, there is an internship waiting for you at The Frisky. [YouTube] Keep reading »

It’s Time To Cry: Anonymous Donors Are Paying For Strangers’ Layaways

Well, isn’t this sweet: some wonderful people are anonymously offering to pay for strangers’ layaway items at random Kmarts across the country.

“I do a lot of interviews where people ask, ‘Now that you’re all happy and content are you going to lose your edge?’ Like there’s nothing edgy about being a mom. Which means that as we all become parents, songs are not written for us anymore, and we have to relive our youth to get off on music or something. Where is the music of where you get older? To be content and secure in your personal life doesn’t make you lose your edge so much. For me it almost gives me more fuel to be radical, to be political, to be fighting the good fight because you have something to stand on. When you’re all wrapped up in your personal foibles it’s hard to have any energy for changing the world or whatever. But now I feel more energized because I have that support system behind me.”

It isn’t hard to impress me when it comes to Ani Di Franco. But I want to send this interview with Ani on Bitch‘s web site to every mama that I know. She reminds me of something the iconic feminist Gloria Steinem often says, which is that women grow more feminist with age. I can absolutely see how bringing a child into the world — a daughter, in Ani’s case — gives you that extra push to make it a better place. [Bitch Magazine] Keep reading »
