Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
The other day, we posted a pic of Kim Kardashian made over to look like a regular person. Actually, she just looked really ugly, thus insulting all of us regular gals who—let’s face it—aren’t so bad. But this got us thinking about all those celebs who’ve gone fugly for roles. After the jump, a bunch of gals who gained weight, wore oversized glasses and/or prosthetics in the name of acting.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t hang on to lipsticks for long. They get lost in bar bathrooms, left in handbags, or simply fall off the face of the earth. And, of course, I can never remember the name of the shade that was oh-so-flattering. So, instead of losing time and money trying various colors until I find the right one yet again, I now keep a Word document with all the names of the lipstick colors, concealer tones, and eye creams I like but don’t buy often enough to remember off the top of my head. Thank you, “Products I Like” file, for reminding me that Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick in Berry Berry is my favorite lip color, because I lost another tube of it this week. Keep reading »
So we already know the “Melrose Place” thing didn’t quite work out for Ashlee Simpson. But that clearly hasn’t kept her up at night worrying about future career plans. Because she’s going to be a designer! She’s a celebrity, are you really surprised? Right, so her new collection is supposed to be a “mix of preppy and punk” apparently, and she’s totally sure her pieces will be huge sellers. Huh. If her new black hair is any indication of her clothing line inspiration, we’re dubious. [Us Weekly, Contact Music] Keep reading »

I didn’t coin the term “man-gagement ring,” so don’t blame me, but, according to ABC News, engagement rings for men are “having a moment.” Call it a clever marketing ploy, but as one NY jeweler said: “If you think about it, a woman is engaged and wears an engagement ring on her finger, oftentimes [for] north of a year. And a guy’s engaged during that same time and walks into a bar as a free man … so I think for $350, $400 for a woman to claim her territory, it’s catching on pretty quickly.” Um, ew. I’m not opposed to engagement rings for guys, but when they’re bought with the intention of claiming one’s territory or stripping a man’s freedom, it’s pretty gross. What do you guys think? Would you buy an engagement ring for your man? [via NYmag.com] Keep reading »
Man, I think Nadya Suleman is really mentally ill. I mean, really mentally ill. I have no idea why her 14 children are still living in her house. After reading all about the Suleman kids in a forthcoming New York Times Magazine article, I feel fine saying her fetishistic breeding of children, plus plopping said children in front of video crews, constitutes child abuse. Yep, child abuse.
But she isn’t the only person we should be upset with; so many others are enabling what Octomom is doing with her kids. From the doctors who put the in-vitro eggs into Suleman to the film crew to the people who buy gossip mags about her kids — they are all contributing to this insane fetishism. The poor kids are the ones who’re suffering!
After the jump, 15 things I learned from the Times article on Octomom so you, too, can lose hope for our culture if this is what constitutes “parenting” these days. Keep reading »
