MTV sure lucked out with its first batch of teen moms. Maci, Farrah, Amber, and Catelynn are all such compelling characters that watching the utter mundanities of their life is interesting. So I was happy to have the foursome back for last night’s season three premiere of “Teen Mom.” If you haven’t watched yet, SPOILER ALERT. If you have, click on for the good, the bad, and the most WTF moments of the episode. Let’s make this like a water cooler and discuss in the comments section. Keep reading »
Less than 24 hours after being acquitted of murder, Casey Anthony already has a job offer. While the rest of the world was outraged by the verdict, Vivid Entertainment’s CEO, Steve Hirsch, saw it as an opportunity. According to TMZ, Hirsch has reached out to Anthony about starring in a porno. “Whether you agree with the verdict or not, Casey will want to move forward with her life and has a right to make a living. It’s not going to be easy for her and we believe we can help her make the transition into a new life,” he said. “We’ve all seen the pictures of her partying and having a good time with friends where she definitely looks hot.”
Ugh. I can’t even start to enumerate the levels of wrong here. Keep reading »

Two months ago, a New York City jury acquitted two NYPD officers who were accused (in a 2008 incident) of allegedly entering the apartment of a drunk woman — who they’d been called to help — several times over the course of one night and raping her. Kenneth Moreno was accused of raping the woman, then a 27-year-old Gap employee who was blackout drunk, while his partner Franklin Mata stood watch. A jury grappled with the lack of DNA evidence tying Moreno to the rape (he allegedly used a condom) and acquitted the “rape cops” of rape, burglary, and falsifying business records and only found them guilty of official misconduct.
Trial watchers were shocked. Activists held protests. Now, The Village Voice has published a front-page article about another late-night incident, also in 2008, in which Moreno and Mata allegedly verbally abused a young woman outside a bar, calling her a “bitch” and a “c**t.”
This is a story — a documented incident — the jury never heard. Keep reading »
There’s that scene in “Mean Girls” where Tina Fey, exasperated by the high school antics, shouts, “You’ve got to stop calling each other sluts and whores.

Reclaiming words like bitch and slut may have started as something political, something third wave feminist, but the words ended up in malls, emblazoned in rhinestones on baby tees at Deb and Rave. Keep reading »
