Evening Quickies: “Bridge & Tunnel” Was MTV’s “Jersey Shore” That Never Happened

 

  • Back in 2009, MTV filmed, but never aired, 12 episodes of a reality show called “Bridge & Tunnel” about Brianna and Gabriella DeBartoli, two party girls from Staten Island. I’m sorry, it’s not Staten Island — it’s DRAMA ISLAND! MTV aired “Jersey Shore” instead, which, let’s be honest, was the better $$$ decision. But still, MTV, how could you keep these baby mob wives from us?! All “Jersey Shore” fans absolutely must watch the “Bridge & Tunnel” trailer post-haste. [Village Voice, Gawker]

Today’s Lady News: Summer’s Eve Pulls Their Racist Douche Ads Offline

  • Summer’s Eve pulled two of their racist douche commercials offline after an outpouring of complaints over their depictions of black and Latina women. Summer’s Eve’s PR defended their ads — like the sassy black vagina spoke with an “urban” accent and talked about how much money she spends on her hair — as “empowering” women and even said they had “in-house multi-cultural experts” who OKed the commercials. Actual women who don’t believe we need vaginal cleaning products thought otherwise. [Twitter.com/FleetSummersEve]
  • A Planned Parenthood clinic in McKinney, Texas, was attacked last night with a Molotov cocktail (a homemade bomb made from diesel fuel inside a glass bottle). Fortunately the inside of the clinic was not harmed and there were no injuries. This is called domestic terrorism, people. [McKinney Courier-Gazette]

In Which We Learn That Balmain’s Concept Of Affordable Is Very Relative

In the world of super high-end designer Balmain, it’s not unusual to charge upwards of $5,000 for a pair of leather pants or $7,000 for a coat. So, the fact that Balmain has decided to release a lower-priced line sounded like good news to us. Until we found out that the price point for this “affordable” line was going to be not so affordable. Prices start at $172 for a T-shirt and run to $1,291 for eveningwear. And that’s not the only thing disappointing about Balmain’s diffusion collection. Judging from photos of the pieces (like the outfit at left), the Pierre Balmain line (as the lower-priced collection is being called) looks like nothing more than chintzy Topshop designs. Diffusion doesn’t have to equal boring, especially from a designer who’s known for his punky, glamorous frocks. And who buys a $172 T-shirt, anyway? Even if we had that kind of money, that would be crazy. [Fashionista] Keep reading »

Raise your hand if you are excited for Björk‘s new album, Biophilia, which will drop in late September.
