Earlier this month, when extremely explicit, triple-X photos of gay “Milk” screenwriter Dustin Lance Black were leaked onto the internet, Perez Hilton (real name: Mario Lavandeira) was one of the first bloggers to post them, in their NSFW entirety. Well, over on Huffington Post, Mike Alvear is calling Lavandeira a traitor for elevating Black “to the hook pinatas swing from” and that posting those photos — “guaranteed to repulse Straight America” — for everyone to see “took a guy who’s helping millions reconcile faith and family with their sexual orientation and turned him into a porn star.” I couldn’t agree more, but it should come as no surprise to anyone that Lavandeira is a creep.

With all the advances in technology and medical research, it’s about damned time someone discovered a way to minimize or eliminate that inconvenient monthly scourge we ladies call our period. Or so drugs like Seasonale and Lybrel, which advertise their ability to reduce or annihilate a monthly period (respectively) would have you believe. As anyone who watches E! or SoapNet (what? You don’t watch “Being Erica”?) can attest, there’s been an explosion in the marketing of birth control pills that help you manage your flow, but the technology allowing a woman to do this has been around since the advent of the Pill in 1960. In fact, the Pill’s creators allowed specifically for a week-long sabbatical from the hormones that stopped you from ovulating with the specific intention of mimicking the body’s natural cycle, worried that women would balk at the notion of not having her trusty monthly visitor. But the fact is, if you’re on the Pill, there’s no reason to bleed. And yet some women still find the idea of not having a period exceedingly unnatural. So the question is: when you’re on the Pill, is your period really necessary? Two women weigh in, after the jump… Keep reading »
OK, so in terms of “Housewives” seasons, the ladies from the Jerz are neck and neck with their sisters from Orange County in terms of plastic surgery, Botox, beauty treatments and fitness trainers. Everyone watched as Gina and Vicky hit up morning boot camp sessions to get toned, cringed as Tam-RA had Botox shot straight into her ocular cavity and discussed whether Gretchen’s boobs were real or fake. Out in Cali-land, physical upkeep just seems so much more out in the open than it is in New Jersey (save Danielle’s Botox party, pictured above, and the first episode dumbbell pumping in almost zero clothing). Ever wonder exactly what physical upkeep goes into being a housewife from the garden state? W magazine gets the goods from Dina (weekly blow-outs! thrice-weekly private Pilates sessions!), Caroline (fake nails!) and Danielle (pretty much anything her bank account—or her boyfriend at the time’s bank account—can handle!). Check out the primping details! [W] Keep reading »
TLC’s promo for Monday’s “special episode” of “Jon & Kate Plus 8” seems to hint at what we’ve all been thinking—that Jon and Kate are headed to divorce court. Without being totally obvious, the ad features Kate saying, “Recently we’ve made some life-changing decisions” while shots of the kids and phrases like “A family in turmoil” and “Where do they go from here?” fade in and out. The spot ends with the words: “Jon and Kate have an announcement.” Tune in on Monday at 9pm to find out what it is. Wouldn’t it be hilarious if their announcement turns out to be that they’re moving from Wernersville, Pennyslvania, to Scranton? Or, even better, that Kate is pregant?! [Us Magazine] Keep reading »
I don’t watch “She’s Got The Look,” and I won’t be watching it in the future, because I am pretty sure it peaked on last night’s episode. “She’s Got The Look,” is basically “America’s Next Top Model” for older ladies. On last night’s episode, one of the contestants, Laurie, lost her marbles during judging, stripped off her top, and started prattling on about beauty being spiritual and wanting to take care of people. It is straight up nuts. Clip above. Keep reading »
Ha! This guy totally got his butt kicked by a girl. In the middle of an interview, this female MMA fighter grabs the reporter dude and puts him in a choke hold. It takes her, like, three seconds to knock him out cold. After the reporter wakes up, he’s all confused and ditzy. Never underestimate the power of a lady. Keep reading »
After being convicted of raping a four-year-old girl, ex-convict and Oklahoman native David Harold Earls is being sentenced to only one year in prison. He reportedly “struck a deal” in which 19 out of 20 of the years he was supposed to spend in jail were suspended.
So, how on earth did this happen? Supposedly, the rape victim (now five), made “contradictory statements during pretrial hearings.” At one point the toddler even left the court room and ran down the hallway. Can you believe that!? I guess that means her rapist is innocent!

After almost five years of marriage, Katie Lee Joel and Billy Joel (ahem, William) have filed for divorce. Now Katie Lee, who is 33 years younger than her soon-to-be ex, will disappear even further into the sunset. You probably don’t even remember that she was once the host of “Top Chef.” Yeah, I didn’t think so. That’s because she only hosted for one season, and viewers complained that she was too robotic. “Top Chef” won—they replaced Katie with Padma Lakshmi, who we love except for the fact that she eats and eats and never seems to gain any weight. But Katie isn’t alone. Check out these former TV hosts who were replaced right before their shows got epically popular. Keep reading »
