National Enquirer Says A DNA Test Proved John Edwards Has A Love Child

We take anything we hear reported in the National Enquirer with a huuuge grain of salt, but the trashy tab was correct about John Edwards‘ affair with former campaign employee Rielle Hunter. Therefore, we’re inclined to give a listen to their wild ‘n crazy rumors. The Enquirer says Edwards allegedly took a secret paternity test that proves that he’s the father of Hunter’s 18-month-old daughter, Frances, and is allegedly arranging child support payments. Vicious rumor or another rare fact in the Enquirer? Time will tell. [National Enquirer] Keep reading »

Laura Ling And Euna Lee Say Thank You

Americans rejoiced when U.S. journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee were pardoned last week by the North Korean government after being detained in a prison there for nearly five months. The women look forward to sharing their experience with the public, but are first taking some time to settle back into their normal lives and enjoy being with their families once again. In the meantime, they’ve posted this video at Current, the news organization the two work for, thanking everyone for their support — the letters, postcards, candlelight vigils, websites, messages to congressmen, etc. “[They] gave us strength to endure the difficult time we spent in North Korea.” When they’re ready to share it, I’m sure their story will be fascinating.

My Day At Stiletto Spy School

Angelina Jolie in “Mr. and Mrs. Smith.” Jennifer Garner in “Alias.” Pretty much every Bond girl, ever. There are few things I love watching more than a woman who can look crazy hot while simultaneously firing an automatic weapon and outsmarting the bad guy. So, when I heard about Stiletto Spy School, which teaches women in New York and Las Vegas how to be über-femme fatales, I couldn’t resist registering for a class, or as they call them, “missions.” I signed up and, on Saturday morning, headed to school for an eight-hour class. I knew that, over the course of the day, we’d be performing four “operations.” Only, I had no idea what I was actually in store for. Keep reading »

Women In Labor Need To Lay Off The Twittering

In the world of Facebook and Twitter, it’s beginning to feel like not much is sacred or private. On Tuesday, Sara Williams, wife of Twitter CEO Evan Williams, pushed the boundaries of discretion even further, when she tweeted about being in labor … while it was happening. She told her 14,000-plus followers when her water broke, when her contractions got painful, and when she got her epidural. And she’s not alone. Some women find it necessary to dish the deets of childbirth live via Twitter, including Erykah Badu. Keep reading »
