Thomas Voorn likes to think of fashion as a conceptual tool to create art and images, and as part of it he’s photographed a dude in a floral print…Speedo? Banana hammock? It’s a sort of mix of the two that we’ve never seen before. Either way, it’s an I’m-very-comfortable-with-my-sexuality swimsuit. We’re okay with that. [Thomas Voorn] Keep reading »
This Sunday, June 28, at 10 p.m., HBO is premiering a new show, “Hung.” Guess what it’s about? A guy who turns to prostitution to make a living. Step aside, “Belle de Jour.” Get out of here, “The Girlfriend Experience.” Call-girls are, like, so 2008. 2009 is all about guys who sell their bodies to make ends meet. The dramatic comedy stars Thomas Jane as Ray Drecker, an all-star high school athlete who ends up as a high school basketball coach whose wife dumps him for her dermatologist. Casting about for something to do with his life and make some money, Drecker takes note of his well-endowed physique and sets about renting it out by the hour. Uh, “The Sopranos” it ain’t. It’s “Boogie Nights” meets the recession! Are you going to tune in or tune it out? Keep reading »
According to TMZ, this past weekend at Corey Feldman’s house was a dog and pony show. His security guard was forced to make a citizen’s arrest of his stalker, who is also technically his roommate. Hold on, let us back up here. Jennifer Herbert is described as a 6-foot tall, 300 pound friend (well, former friend now) of Corey’s who he allowed to stay in his house and pay rent. Things went downhill shortly after Herbert moved in (as they tend to with friends/roommates). Feldman claims Herbert threatened to harm him, “trash-talked” him in front of his guests and asked his kid “adult questions.” Eek. We should also mention that Feldman and Herbert knew each other through mutual friend Michael Jackson. Anyhoo, Feldman allegedly had a restraining order against Herbert that required she stay at least six feet away from Feldman and his kid while in the house. An in-house restraining order? That’s genius. Putting all the pieces together … it would appear that Herbert violated her in-house restraining order, which led to the citizen’s arrest.
This stalking story makes our brains hurt. I’m sure we will hear more details soon. Corey is not the first famous person to have a crazy stalking incident. Our slideshow of celebrity stalkers will make you glad you aren’t famous. [TMZ]
I have always been stumped about what to do with presents from exes. I have never been engaged so I haven’t had to deal with any seriously valuable or sentimental jewelry, but I have a couple of rocks that I just wasn’t sure what to do with. I think you should always offer to give presents of value back, that’s just the polite thing to do. But, if the dude says he wants you to have it, what else can a girl do but keep it? However, if the dude was a total bastard, then keeping the bling and booby-trapping his apartment is totally legit. Not that I have ever done that of course, just throwing the possibility out there…Anyway, I am not terribly sentimental, but sometimes (and I really do just mean sometimes as I look at my bracelet) a piece of jewelry reminds me of things I would much rather forget. But what do you do with that annoying Tiffany heart necklace? You can’t just throw it out? You could give it away, but it was so pricey it tugs my heart and wallet strings to get nothing in return. You could give it to a friend, but learn from my own personal awkward-Olympics experience, it’s really uncomfortable when you see her wearing what your dude gave you. Luckily for our repression, denial and wallets, Out Of Your Life.com is an easy way to pawn off gifts from your ex for cash. Keep reading »
For a long time, I was certain the artist formerly known as Prince (or is he Prince again? I get confused) was an alien. Turns out, he’s just a Jehovah’s Witness. After a lifetime of sexy dancing, the 50-something-year-old is in need of a double hip replacement, trading in his raspberry beret for a diamond-encrusted cane. But alas his highness has refused the surgery, citing his religious beliefs as his reason. Evidently, Jehovah’s Witnesses aren’t down with blood transfusions. [Celebitchy] — Or maybe he doesn’t want the doctors to discover his true alien identity? Hmmm.
After the jump, more celebs who have weird…er…unique views on medicine. Keep reading »
When I went for a facial at Ildi Pekar last week, my aesthetician took one look at my skin and said, “You have stomach problems, don’t you?” Astounded, I was unsure as to whether this spa was just really thorough and had been spying on me for a week prior, or if she was psychic. “Oh, you know, kind of…” I replied, a bit too embarrassed to go into detail about WW III that goes on in my stomach on a daily basis (for the past ten years). She continued to tell me that people who suffer from constipation and improper digestion tend to display acne due to a lack of hydrochloric acid, which stalls the destruction of bacteria. I expected her to then tell me what doctors have been pushing on me for ages—eat whole grains, drink water, fiber, fiber, blah, blah. But then she explained that what I should be doing is brushing my stomach. Excuse me? Suggesting a body brush, which women often use to try to get rid of cellulite, you’re supposed to stroke the paddle in a large counterclockwise circle, about 12 times, once a day, to aid digestion. Weird? Yes. But if it’s a peace offering that may end WW III, I’m willing to give it a try. [$6, Nens Natural Body Brush, Bebeautiful.com] Keep reading »
Dating to find the right person, i.e. kind, mentally healthy,and moderately good-looking, can be real challenge. So many nicely wrapped packages end up holding a lump of coal. Or a big pile of poo.
I thought I’d share several types to watch out for in the dating lottery game. Warning: not all bad ‘uns come stamped with “Loser” across their forehead. Too bad for us little girls getting our hearts broke. Again.
We’ll start with some lightweights (revealed in less than three dates) and work our way up to the big stinker (can suck up years of your life). Keep reading »
If you’re a woman in your mid-thirties, the dating scene is challenging enough. You’re conscious of feeling older, wrinkles become a reality, and you feel like your stock value as a potential wife has started to head south faster than the housing market. So in the past year, I decided it was high time I met a fabulous man. Keep reading »
