    Sarah Haskins On “Tough Love”

    It’s a wonder the human race has survived this long. Why? Because women are single, crazy, and conniving. But if we all follow “Tough Love” matchmaker Steve Ward’s rules, we’ll end up living a life of bliss. And by bliss, I mean we’ll get hitched … and then divorced. Watch this video of Sarah Haskins taking on “Tough Love.” Normally, Steve’s rules make sense to me, but seeing him and the single women and hearing his rules put together in this clip makes me rethink everything.

    Former Miss California Speaks Out On Gay Marriage

    “The truth is that it is difficult to know for sure the intentions of the biblical authors, but we do know something about God. Those of us who know God through Jesus of Nazareth know that he went to great lengths to express God’s love to people who were labeled as outcasts. He spent time with children, prostitutes, and lepers, all of whom were labeled as outside of the grasp of the Holy. As we continue to seek God’s vision for us as a nation grounded in a love for justice, I pray that we might move closer to the cause of grace.”

    So says Nicole Lamarche, who was Miss California in 2003 and is now an ordained minister at Cotuit Federated Church in Cotuit, Massachussettes. Lamarche spoke out on the issue of gay marriage after the current Miss California, Carrie Prejean, said she did not support gay marriage at Sunday’s Miss USA pageant, citing her religious beliefs.

    Were You Born To Be A Porn Star?

    Were you born to be a porn star? Me neither. But that’s the premise of “Born to Be a Star.” Written and produced by Adam Sandler, the comedy focuses on a Middle American nerd, played by Nick Swardson, who discovers that his parents were porn stars. Christina Ricci plays the born-into-porn dude’s girlfriend and Stephen Dorff will put in an appearance as a legendary woodsman known as “Dick Shadow.” Of course, the story idea isn’t so out there so as not to be believed. Actress Thora Birch of “American Beauty” fame? Both her parents were porn stars. Her mother, Carol Connors, appeared in “Deep Throat,” on the set of which she met Thora’s father, Jack Birch. Also? Her mother, uh, performed with John Holmes in “The Erotic Adventures of Candy.” Now that’s got to be embarrassing. [Variety] Want to find out more about Hollywood stars’ secret porn pasts?
