Last night on “Grey’s Anatomy” we finally got to see how ABC execs decided to cut out Erica Hahn (Brooke Smith) and her lesbian love storyline. There was much backlash and gossip regarding the unfair decision to give Erica the boot because people and network execurives seemed “uncomfortable” with her same sex relationship. The news leaked that she was getting the ax right before the episode aired. So how did they do it? More details after the jump. Keep reading »
In his election night speech, President-elect Barack Obama told his daughters they had earned a puppy, and speculation over what type of dog the family should get began. Michelle has said they will be getting a shelter dog, but with Malia’s allergies, it needs to be hypoallergenic one.
No matter where the Obamas’ dog comes from — the pound or a breeder — it has to be photogenic, for sure. We bet your dogs are awfully attractive, so we want you to send canine photos and videos to email@example.com, along with the reason your dog would be the perfect presidential pet. Next week, we’ll post the cutest dogs and award one the title of First Dog.
UPDATE: Barack Obama responded to the question at a press conference today…

“Simosa” from ”The ABC’s of Dating”
Wendy rocked out her dating ABC’s! Simosa applauded her with:
“This is a great list. They should distribute this list to all 16-year old girls when they get they pass their driver’s test.”
Ha, you mean before they ride in the backseat! Keep reading »
One of the biggest defenses used by people who are not in favor of gay marriage — even from those who don’t oppose civil unions or other gay rights issues — is that marriage is an institution that’s founded on connecting mothers and fathers to their children. Writes Jennifer Roback Morse for the National Review, in her article “8 Is Not Hate”:
“I view marriage as a gender-based institution that attaches mothers and fathers to each other and to their children. Those of us who support Proposition 8 believe that children deserve at least the chance to have a relationship with a mom and a dad. That isn’t hateful toward anyone.”
Righty-o! Using “the children” as a shield for bigotry seems like shifty parenting to me, but whatevs. When the divorce rate is at 50% in this country, marriage is already under attack — by straight people! Keep reading »
Yesterday, you guys had a lot to say about the Narciso Rodriguez dress Michelle Obama wore on election night. And you weren’t the only ones. Everyone is voicing their views on whether the dress made a good statement, or a horrible, ill-fitting one. Currently, a People.com poll has 65 percent saying they hated Michelle’s fashion choice, and an Us Weekly poll found that 79.6 percent didn’t like her dress. Perhaps Michelle’s fashion choices will help Americans take more fashion risks over the next four years? Keep reading… Keep reading »
Last night, an African-American man made television history! Sure, Barack has got our future in his very capable hands, but Will.i.am transported us straight into “Star Trek” territory! That’s right, the beat box behind the Black Eyed Peas, who also made the very viral “Yes We Can” video, was teleported into the CNN studio from Grant Park in Chicago. At a such a crucial time in our history, Anderson Cooper united nerds across this great land by saying, “Let’s see if we can beam him in.” Then, right there, before our very eyes, the first man ever in hologram, FOR REAL, on national television!
Okay, so Will.i.am got it a little mixed up and said he felt like he was in “Star Wars.” But, Cooper quickly corrected him that, much like cell phones, it was in fact The Trek that was responsible for this kind of totally awesome technology! [FYI, "Star Wars" had pre-recorded hologram messages ("Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope.") but could not beam people anywhere, though that sure would have come in handy.] Sigh, we love the Coop!
