Bristol Palin isn’t done making catty observations about Meghan McCain. First, in her memoir, Not Afraid Of Life, she wrote Meghan was always complaining. Some of that is only fair, I suppose, after Meghan’s swipes at Sarah Palin in her own book. However, last night Bristol stopped by Fox News to bare her claws once again — this time to make Meghan look like a rich bitch elitist and a dilettante opportunist. “I just want to note that her dad is a politician and my mom is a politician, but that never defined me,” she tells Sean Hannity. “I do stuff for myself.” BRISTOL. PLEASE. Does she seriously think she’d be raking in the big bucks as an abstinence-only speaker, foxtrotting on “Dancing With The Stars,” or publishing a friggin’ memoir at age 20 if her mother was not Sarah Palin?

Two years ago, I got my fifth tattoo, a large red and black crown on the back of my neck. I went home to visit my parents and was stunned by the lack of commentary. Eventually, I just had to ask.
“Mom, did you see my new tattoo?”
“Yes. It’s … big.” Clearly, she’d made an uneasy peace with the idea that her daughter loves ink. Keep reading »
Can we take a moment to appreciate that Better Day is Dolly Parton’s freaking 41st studio album? Much respect, Dolly, much respect. What makes Dolly tunes so amazing is that they can take lyrics that would normally make me roll my eyes—for example, “Together you and I can stop the rain/ and make the sun shine”—but with her voice and the sheer power of her optimism, it makes me think, Yes, we can make the sun shine! This album is the perfect thing to play at your Fourth of July BBQ over the long weekend or to put on the stereo for that road trip to Dollywood.
Apparently, nobody ever told “Transformers” star Shia LaBeouf (whose name I continue to never know how to spell) that it was ungentlemanly to kiss and tell, because dude straight up told the world that he hooked up with costar Megan Fox while they were filming the movie. In a new interview with Details, LaBeouf says it’s understandable because, “Look, you’re on the set for six months, with someone who’s rooting to be attracted to you, and you’re rooting to be attracted to them.” He goes on to say that “the time I spent with Megan was our own thing, and I think you can see the chemistry onscreen.” Yes, all that chemistry in the MIchael Bay explosion-a-thon “Transformers.”
And then there’s this, from the Details interview… Keep reading »
Stephanie Robinette, a teacher in Delaware, has been charged with resisting arrest and assaulting police officers. But it’s the weapon she used that is highly unusual. On Saturday night, Robinette attended a wedding where she had too much to drink. After hitting her husband several times, she darted for their car and locked herself inside. When police officers arrived and tried to get her out of the car, she told them that she was a breastfeeding mom. At that point, she unleashed one of the girls from her dress and bra and began spraying the officers with breast milk. She was arrested on the spot. Though she did apologize for the incident saying, “I have no criminal record; I take these charges very seriously and I absolutely intend to seek help for substance abuse with alcohol because alcoholism does run in my family,” she plans to plead not guilty. Though I guess technically, it’s assault with a life-giving weapon rather than a deadly one? [10TV, Newser] Keep reading »
