Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
We tend to show more skin and wear lighter fabrics in the summer, so there are some essential summer underwear that a woman just can’t do without. We found, with the help of BareNecessities.com, stay-put strapless bras, seamless thongs, breathable panties, and seamless shapewear in both plus-size and misses.
Things not to do if you are a juror in a high profile case: friend request the defendant on Facebook. That’s exactly what British woman Joanne Fraill did and the action may just land her in jail for being in contempt of court. Fraill was a juror in a drug case with four defendants. After one of them was acquitted—a 34-year-old woman named Jamie Sewart—Fraill found her on Facebook and struck up a conversation. Apparently, she felt for Sewart. Keep reading »
“I remember girls running after the buses in the hundreds … We’d finish playing, the band would be putting the gear up, and we would be trying to do a quick out, which is what they call it when you leave the stage before the band stops playing. We’d get on the bus and there would be 250 to 400 girls waiting to run after us. I distinctly remember Joey Fatone singing the theme song from ‘The Goonies’ while this particular pack of girls was running. It was just crazy.”
—Justin Timberlake recalls the good ‘ol days with ‘NSync when he was still rocking his ramen noodles hairdo. Can you think of an unsexier image than Joey Fatone serenading ‘tweens with “The Goonies” theme song? I can’t. Better question: why, as young girls, were we so hot for boy bands? [I would answer this question if I wasn't busy crying over missing the NKOTBSB concert in NYC. -- Editor] [Playboy] Keep reading »
Oh, tears, Hugh Hefner won’t be getting married this weekend after all. “The wedding is off,” he tweeted. “Crystal has had a change of heart.” Crystal Harris later elaborated, “After much deep reflection and thought I have decided to end my engagement with Hef. I have the utmost respect for Hef and wish him the best going forward. I hope the media will give each of us the privacy we deserve during this time.” Maybe she realized that she couldn’t be married to a man who bones other people? Maybe she got the news that his first divorce went down in 1959? Or maybe, as Page Six alleges, something much more sinister happened. They claim that Crystal has been dating someone else—Jordan McGraw, aka Dr. Phil’s son—for months and that her plan was to walk down the aisle, say “I can’t go through with it,” and ditch Hef there while Lifetime TV cameras rolled. She allegedly thought this would make her an instant media star. And Hugh’s latest tweet makes me believe this tale. “Since we’re not getting married on Saturday, I’ve scheduled a movie: ‘Runaway Bride.’ Seems appropriate,” he typed. Poor guy. [People, NY Post, Daily Beast]
Whatever the story, Hugh and Crystal are no more. After the jump, more famous folks who called off their weddings.
I’m not usually one to clutch my pearls when a 17-year-old actress poses provocatively. But I know I’m not the only one who looks at Dakota Fanning at any age and always sees the little girl from “I Am Sam,” right? Here she is posing with Marc Jacobs‘ Oh Lola — in a flower-shaped perfume bottle — between her legs. This must be what it’s like to have a younger sister. [Movieline] Keep reading »
The New York Times did not name the alleged victim. But an article published yesterday provided lots of details on the personal life of the Guinean immigrant who works as a housekeeper at the Sofitel hotel in New York City until she accused the then-chief of the International Monetary Fund of sexual assault. She was born in a mud hut without running water or electricity, married off to a cousin as a teenager, and doesn’t speak English.
On the one hand, the Times piece gives us insight into just how humble this woman’s life has been, which makes the accusations against Strauss-Kahn’s look all the more horrible. But on the other hand, what purpose do any details about her personal life really serve? Keep reading »
