Recession? What Recession?

Paris Hilton (with bf Doug Reinhardt in tow) beat the Black Friday crowds and went on a shopping spree today, stocking up on who-knows-what at Fred Segal. Leave something for the rest of us, sheesh. [Los Angeles, 11/25/09] Keep reading »

iPhone App Investigates Your Date

Good news — well, depending on your definition of good. Two new iPhone apps, “Is He Really Single?” and “Stud or Dud,” act like an electronic private eye to collect information on your date—like whether he’s been married, divorced, has a criminal background, or has filed for divorce. All you need is your iPhone, the app, your date’s full name, his date of birth, and the fortitude to face the disappointment in his face when he realizes what psycho business you’re up to. Oh, and extra fortitude in case one of these apps actually dredges up something you don’t want to know. The creators of these apps are calling them fun, but their potential goes far beyond Googling the whiskey goggles off the Taylor Lautner look-alike you’ve been chatting up. [CNN]

Someone Got “Carrie”-d Away With Xmas

I like “Sex and the City” as much as any other girl, but with these new holiday ornaments, I think some people’s obsession might have gone a little bit too far. They retail for $12.99 and HBO’s created an entire assortment — including a martini, mini purse, Eiffel Tower, and high heel. Over the top much? [HBO] Keep reading »

Glamorizing Or Objectifying? Women’s B-Ball Stars In Ball Gowns

The stars of Florida State University’s women’s basketball team can now be seen lounging in ball gowns and limousines. The team’s new website has debuted with a series of glamour shots that have, um, something to do with basketball — we think? While some of the team’s tall beauties are embracing basketballs, others seem to be practicing for a future as car show models. Is that what FSU officials envision for their players’ post-academic careers? Some women seem to think so. The university’s press release says the pictures are all about how “women athletes are powerful and beautiful.” But if they really believe that, why wrap these ladies in shiny, floor-length skirts and take away their gear?

The Body Of A.J. Jewell To Be Exhumed For Second Autopsy

What killed A.J. Jewell, the former fiance of Kandi Burruss from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta“? Was it murder or a sickle cell anemia crisis? Well, the Fulton County, GA, district attorney has tentatively agreed to have A.J.’s body exhumed for a second autopsy in order to confirm that it was the disease that killed him. The preliminary autopsy report said he died of homicide as a result of a fight he had with Frederick Richardson that caused his sickle cell to be deadly. A.J.’s family disagrees with these findings, and thinks they’re contradictory because the report blames the fight and sickle cell for the death. The DA will have to get a court order for the exhumation. Richardson has been charged with voluntary manslaughter. [Crimesider, Atlanta Journal-Constitution] Keep reading »

To Attract The Dudes, Follow The 40% Rule

A new study concludes that there is a magic number when it comes to appealing to the men folk’s reptilian brains. Men are twice as likely to be attracted to a woman baring 40 percent of her skin. Yes … our body parts are really just an equation. Bare arm, 10 percent, bare leg, 15 percent. So if you’re going out on the town cruising for dudes, you might wanna make sure you’ve done your math. Why 40 percent? The study shows that it’s just the right amount of skin to make you alluring without making a guy scared that you’re going to run off with his brother. Very interesting. I wonder if you can mix and match? Like one leg, one arm, one nipple? [Newser] Keep reading »

What’s The Most Public Place You’ve Had Sex?

Apparently, love is in the air this holiday. Particularly in Australia, where a young couple partook in some afternoon delight in broad daylight, on a clock tower that’s one of Sydney’s landmarks above a dorm. As a crowd of hundreds of curious bystanders gathered below, they went at it. According to a witness, “The couple did seem to know they could be seen and seemed completely unfazed.” And what harm was done, besides potentially exposing youngsters to nudity? The Australian papers are begging for the couple to come forward, presumably to grant them an award for their public service of bringing people together … to laugh about sex? Presumably, they were college students, maybe still drunk from binge-drinking the night before and brimming with sin from living in such close quarters with the opposite sex? [Orange News]

I think I would only be able to handle that level of PDA if I was positive no one would ever know it was me and no children were within a two mile radius. Where’s the most public place you have had sex? Keep reading »

Britney Spears, There’s An App For That

Because celebrities haven’t taken over every millimeter of your existence quite yet, some intrepid folks of note are coming to an iPhone near you. That’s right, having your favorite celeb at your fingertips 24/7 is the wave of the future. Last week, Britney Spears joined the trend, launching her very own iPhone app, “It’s Britney!” For the modest cost of $1.99, you can easily get messages, news, photos, and Twitter updates from Brit. There is even a sparkler feature, so when you go to her next show you can hold up your phone instead of a lighter. The best feature though, in my opinion, is the Shake Shake Shake option, which makes your phone yell, “It’s Britney, bitch!” every time you shake your phone. All in all, this sounds like … a big waste of two dollars. [MTV]

After the jump, some more celebrities getting in on the app game. Keep reading »
