Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
“She has wanted this very badly. She’s got a big heart and she’s been talking about having children since I met her, which is not always common with actresses. She is going to be someone who is so devoted … I have to do something about [the pregnancy on 'Mad Men'] but I’m not going to tell. It could be laundry baskets or it could be a body double. There are a million things you can do.”
—Matthew Weiner, the dude behind “Mad Men,” talks about January Jones‘ pregnancy. Not only does he think she’ll be a stellar mom, but he says her pregnant belly won’t be hard to work around when they start filming the show. Wait, covering her tummy with laundry baskets? Come on, Matthew. Let’s have her be pregnant with Henry’s child! [E! Online] Keep reading »
One of the more cuckoo claims of anti-abortion extremists is that abortion is all about “black genocide.” You know, Americans want abortion legal mostly so we can cut down on the black population or something. That is the flawless logic behind these, these and these billboards targeted at black people in urban hubs like New York City and Atlanta. The latest WTF-ery is a new movie called “Gates Of Hell” about … wait for it … black men who hunt down abortion providers as “payback” for the “genocide.” Keep reading »
Whoa, did I just fall down the Design*Sponge rabbit hole. When it came to selecting a kitchen for today’s Home Style Stealer — a new feature we’ve launched as part of 7 Days To A Prettier Place week — I ignored appliances because this is about decorating, not remodeling.

I sort of love the idea of richie rich celebrities gathering in swank hotel rooms for illegal high-stakes poker games with an $100,000 minimum buy-in. Apparently, this is what Tobey Maguire, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, and other assorted Hollywood high-rollers have been up to. I imagine there were lots of cigars at these games, not to mention tomfoolery that would make a gossip columnist drool all over themselves.
So how did we find out about these underground poker games? Because Maguire, along with Nick Cassavettes (the director of “The Notebook”) and Gabe Kaplan (the star of “Welcome Back Kotter,” who I’m guessing is like the crazy older uncle of the group) just got sued over them. Keep reading »
We’ve all probably done and said some pretty stupid things while wasted. But as stupid as former Dior designer John Galliano? Well … Galliano claims that the anti-Semitic rant he went on. which led to him being fired, was a result of booze and drugs. Galliano is on trial in Paris on public insult charges (a real thing in Paris) and, after being forced to watch the tape of himself saying “I love Hitler,” offered an apology. “I’m apologizing because that man you see up there is not John Galliano. I have no recollection of these events,” he said. “I read about them afterwards.” Galliano blamed his job with Dior for his exhaustion and drug use. Keep reading »
