Sarah Palin Adult Movies: The Trend That Wouldn’t Die

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to surfing the Internet, Hustler has announced it’s got yet another adult movie spoofing the life and times of former vice-presidential candidate and governor of Alaska Sarah Palin. When it comes to XXX, Palin moves product, apparently. First, there was “Who’s Nailin’ Paylin?” Then, there was “Obama Is Nailin’ Palin.” (Guess we got that question answered.) Now, the X-rated empire Larry Flynt built is producing “Hollywood’s Nailin’ Palin,” in which, among other surely tawdry deeds, “Sarah Palin” gets it on with “Tina Fey” playing Sarah Palin on “SNL.” It’s all so confusing. In any case, the sure to be, um, fascinating latest homage to the politician who will not go away is set to be released early this summer. You know, if you’re into that sort of thing. By which I mean politics. [Sexaminer] Keep reading »

“The Real Housewives Of New Jersey”: Danielle’s Shady Past Is Revealed

So, the s**t hit the fan on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” last night, as Danielle’s seedy, coke-whorin’ past as “Beverly” was revealed and she pissed off all the women by taking the cha-cha too seriously at a dance class. Danielle first addressed rumors that she was a husband stealer, telling Jacqueline and Teresa that the rumors were BS, but then jumping on them for even thinking that it might be true. Danielle has got a point — for all this talk of loyalty, no one seems to have Danielle’s back and I kind of feel bad for her. Or I would, if she wasn’t so damn shady. And if she hadn’t put her paws all over delicious Albie. Keep reading »

    Concert Tickets, Without A Zillion Fees

    Men Tip More To Waitresses Who Wear Makeup

    The outside world is more like a Hooters restaurant than you previously thought: a new study says that men are more likely to tip a waitress if she looks pretty wearing makeup.

    Researchers studied the tips received by two waitresses from 186 male and 98 female customers. Only one third of the dudes left a tip if the waitress wore a bare, makeup-less face. (Cheap bastards!) But after a beautician applied makeup to the servers, the number of men who tipped flew up to 51 percent. Not to mention that the size of the tips rose 25 percent. Hmm, it brings new meaning to the term “makeup tips,” doesn’t it? Keep reading »

    Playboy Changes Its Mind About Hate F**king Conservative Women

    Playboy.com posted a story yesterday called “So Right It’s Wrong,” about the conservative women writer Guy Cimbalo wanted to “hate f**k”; it’s since been removed. After the story was posted, the blogosphere, particularly female bloggers, had a complete meltdown, with some calling for a boycott. Playboy took a kick to the balls and responded in an appropriately wimpy fashion by taking down the article. So what was so offensive? Our own Susannah Breslin writes over at Double X:

    “It’s a listicle that eviscerates every conservative female that crossed Cimbalo’s radar as someone who was at least in some regard physically attractive and yet whose personal politics he found to be utterly loathsome. The list includes Michelle Malkin, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Laura Ingraham, and Peggy Noonan.

    On Malkin: ‘Worse than f**king Ava Braun.’ On Ingraham: ‘Vagina dentata would be an improvement.’ On Noonan: ‘Imagine f**king your grandmother. Now imagine your grandmother coined the phrase ‘a thousand points of light.’ It’s worse than that.’”

    Katie Couric Makes Princeton Grads Go “HaHa”

    Katie Couric gave the Class Day address at Princeton University yesterday, and was the first female to do so! We don’t understand why the old ivy has never before invited a lady, but we’re glad Katie was there to offer her witty insights. She joked about some notorious male Princeton grads, poked a little fun at Sarah Palin’s odd remarks, and gave amusing thoughts about post-college life. She also warned to “please excuse some of the racier jokes – I was encouraged to be saucy and sassy!” No excuses necessary, Katie, we think you’re fabulous. After the jump, some of Couric’s best lines:
