“Lost” turned 100 last night, airing its 100th episode, and, go figure, last night’s show ended with a shocker/head-scratcher/WHAT? The show has always been full of horrible fathers — from Jack’s alcoholic pop to Locke’s father who went so far as to steal his son’s kidney — but last night Eloise Hawking shot her son, scientist Daniel Faraday. Why’d she get trigger-happy? After recovering from shock, the blogosphere discussed. Keep reading »
A 31-year-old Australian politician had her legs lengthened when she was a 23-year-old lawyer. Hajnal Ban traveled to Russia for the operation, where they broke her legs in four places and stretched them one millimeter every day. After nine months, she had grown about three inches to around 5’4″. Ban said she decided to have the operation because she had been called a midget in school and believed her height would have a damaging effect on her career. We think her attitude is the only thing that would have hindered her. Keep reading »
“Capitol Hill is packed with gay staffers,” says the narrator of “Outrage,” a documentary by filmmaker Kirby Dick that seeks to expose closeted gay conservatives who publicly oppose gay rights. The film features several men discussing their relationships with various politicians, including former New York City Mayor Ed Koch, Florida Governor Charlie Crist, and former Senator Larry Craig. Dick says the mainstream media has ignored rumors about closeted gay politicians, and his film purports to expose the hypocrisy of those politicians who allegedly hinder gay rights efforts by day but benefit from the activism of others by night. All the allegations in the film are true, says Dick. “If they decide to legally come after me that will become as big a story as the film,” he said. “All it will do is help ticket sales.” “Outrage” premiered last Friday at the Tribeca Film Festival and is slated for a limited release in several cities, including Washington, D.C., on May 8.
Do you think outing these politicians will give more transparency in government? Or is coming out always a personal decision? How much privacy should politicians have? Keep reading »
Everyone’s still talking about Miss California’s gay marriage comments. Now there’s more drama for 21-year-old beauty queen Carrie Prejean. Apparently, there were some nice perks for her as former Miss California. The state’s pageant organization paid her bill for fake boobs.
Prejean received breast implants paid for by the Miss California Organization just weeks before she competed in the Miss USA pageant, confirmed Shanna Moakler, co-executive director of organization. Shanna told “Access Hollywood” that Carrie wanted breasts implants and the Miss California Organization “supported that decision.” Shanna, herself a former Miss USA and an ex-Playboy Playmate, added, “Breast implants in pageants is not a rarity. It’s definitely not taboo. It’s very common. Breast implants today among young women today is very common.” Keep reading »
Bethenny Frankel isn’t married, so her appearances on “The Real Housewives of New York City” usually focus on her friendships or her dating life. Last night, Bethenny gave us one hell of dating gem. She introduced us to the “trick guy,” a not-so-good-looking man who’s insecure because he didn’t get laid in high school, and who, as a grown man, is still sorting out his insecurities. Now that he’s older and has more money, he feels he has to make up for lost time. He’ll cheat on his wife or girlfriend and go out to strip clubs. Basically, he plays head games with the women in his life. Conversely, the attractive guy had enough sex in high school or college to make him more grounded and able to connect to women as he gets older. Of course, Bethenny says this theory doesn’t hold true across the board Some gorgeous men remain d-bags throughout their lives. Do you think there’s any weight to the “trick guy” theory? Have you ever been tricked into liking a trick guy? Keep reading »
