After watching this new Rhapsody ad and seeing this recent fashion layout for POP magazine, starring model-of-the-moment Agyness Deyn and shot by Ryan McGinley, I couldn’t help but wonder if women jumping off buildings is the new, new thing in pop-culture imagery. In late June, model Ruslana Korshunova, in an apparent suicide, fell from the ninth-floor balcony of her New York City apartment. What do you think is going on here? Keep reading »
Saturday is definitely the day to watch some of your favorite movies, like The Godfather and Purple Rain, but you can also catch up on the first season of “Dirty Sexy Money,” since the second season starts on October 1. You can also catch a replay of the “Heroes” season premiere on Saturday night. And remember, ABC’s fall shows premiere on Sunday as well as “Dexter” and “Californication” on Showtime. Sweet mother of god, there is some good stuff on TV this weekend. So much for outdoor activities. [TV Guide] Keep reading »
While every girl wants to stop traffic, Italian women are being accused of causing car accidents because they’re so damn sexy. Due to these ridiculous claims, the governments in Rome, Milan, and Florence have just passed laws decreeing that women dress and act more modestly. The legislation states that women must refrain from “adopting poses or behavior or wearing clothing that unequivocally manifest the intention to solicit or practice the activity of prostitution.” Say what?! That sounds like the pervs are blaming the wrong people — i.e. anyone but themselves. But the government maintains that they’re cracking down on clothing to curb streetwalkers. So what are working girls doing in these difficult times for advertising their goods? The world’s oldest profession is pulling one over on “the man” by taking up a new habit — literally. All the hookers have banded together and begun to wear nuns’ uniforms. Ha! Pia Covre, of the Committee for the Rights of Prostitutes, explained, “The idea of wearing gowns or habits down to the feet is to confront the decrees which limit even the freedom of what you can wear.” Ironically, now these whores are sticking it to the foolish Madonna complex. We like their sense of style!
There’s only one thing I love more than reality television — my gay BFF! We go together like a penis and vagina, except that we don’t have sex, obvi. Now even Bravo wants to get in on our sweet action. Rumor has it, the network that brings you Kathy Griffin and Project Runway has a new reality TV show in the works. According to gossip king Michael Musto, it will be about couples comprised of gays and the girls they love. Although the premiere date has not been announced, I’m already making space on my DVR! I hope this show really helps break down discrimination — and I don’t mean just against homos. The ladies who love the gays often get called hags. As if! Listen, I might not be Angelina Jolie, but I’m sick of being called a paper bagger just because I hang out with guys who aren’t interested in packing my box! And let’s face it, that name is a misnomer in most cases — Margaret Cho, Madonna, Chelsea Handler, Katherine Heigl (pictured at left with her GBFF), and even Clay Aiken’s baby mama are totally slammin’! Speaking of which, I hope Clay and his special lady/womb at least have a guest spot. Still, I wonder what the show will even be like…an “Amazing Race”-style adventure, a style show like “Top Design”, a buddy comedy like “Beauty and the Geek”? Supposedly, the concept comes from a book that contains a collection of essays called “Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys”. Well, whenever and whatever it is, I’ll be watching!
With the news this morning that Renee Zellweger had a cancer scare back in 1996, we started thinking about just how many female celebrities have battled breast cancer in the last few years — it’s been almost as frequent as the number of those having twins! Christina Applegate, Sheryl Crowe, Melissa Etheridge, Edie Falco, Olivia Newton John, Cynthia Nixon, Robin Roberts, Kylie Minogue, and Elizabeth Edwards are among the many women in the news who have battled breast cancer and it really indicates how many more women NOT making headlines are facing the disease themselves. According to the Susan G. Komen For The Cure, nearly 200,000 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer this year and about 40,000 women will die from the disease. With that in mind, I wanted to compile a list of must know information for women about breast cancer — when to get checked out, what to look for, what your personal risk is, etc. Check it out, after the jump….

Last night’s season premiere of “Grey’s Anatomy” was two hours long, so there was a lot of time for things to happen. But really, the episode can be summed up in a few nuggets of wisdom, including the one provided by Dr. Alex Karev in the above clip.
For this week’s challenge, the contestants had to design for each other based on a musical genre. Kenley created a hip-hop outfit for Leanne, who designed a country music outfit for Korto. Korto made a punk-inspired look for Suede. And Suede created a rock outfit for Jerell, who turned Kenley into a pop diva with his design. The drama popped off from the beginning of the episode, but most of it centered around Miss Bratty Kenley, which is how I realized I have a major crush on Jerell.
