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

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 »
We thought meggings were the only bottoms Russell Brand owned, but, fortunately, he also owns gym shorts. A man has to keep his physique tight if he’s going to wear tights as pants. [London, 11/13/09] Keep reading »
Tonight on “20/20,” Elizabeth Vargas will sit down with filmmaker Christie Callan-Jones, whose documentary “Cat Ladies” tells the stories of four cat-loving women, one of whom has 123 living in her house. Viewers will get to go inside the homes of these ultimate cat ladies and learn a little bit about their obsession. Callan-Jones says it’s more than simply caring for a few feline friends; the cats are often symptoms of or salves for other issues. Watch what I think will be a fascinating show (even though I’m a dog lover), at 10 p.m. (EST) on ABC. [ABC News] Keep reading »
File this one under “random afflictions I’m relieved I don’t have.” Poor little Lauren Johnson, 12, has been sneezing eight or nine times every minute
for two weeks
. According to Lemondrop, “Doctors think it might be intractable psychogenic sneezing, a very rare disorder with fewer than 40 documented cases in the world with no surefire method of treatment.” Her adorably polite younger brother is bound to lose his voice any second now from saying “bless you!” [Lemondrop

This week Leonardo DiCaprio got “busted” laying down some serious coinage for a variety of skincare products, including eye creams, toner, face masks and anti-wrinkle potions, at the Blue Mercury boutique in Los Angeles. While his reps insisted that he bought them for a lady friend (Lindsay Lohan mayhaps?), what dude buys wrinkle creams for his girlfriend? And a fellow shopper claimed he was asking the salespeople an awful lot of questions about how the formulas worked. We’re not surprised–it’s not like guys are immune to the pressure to look young in Hollywood–and, like so many of us, Leo continues to grow older. Sigh. But, considering most dermatologists think the majority of cosmetic anti-wrinkle creams are total B.S., we think he could’ve saved himself and his fine lines a lot of money. I mean, has anyone here found a wrinkle cream that actually works? What’s the most you’ve ever spent on a mad beauty-product shopping spree? [Examiner] Keep reading »
