Quote Of The Day: John Mayer Appreciates A Good Gay Crowd

“Rumor check: went to gay bar in Palm Springs, yes. Had a blast. Danced my face off. Someone there planted a kiss on me? No. I don’t like the story painting gays as unable to control themselves. Found the crowd even more respectful than in a straight club. You know who the most flamboyant crowd is? Straight, drunk girls. They’re like a bunch of little Charles Nelson Reillys.”

— John Mayer, who once made out with blogger Perez Hilton, doing what he can to dispel rumors he had another gay kiss recently. [via US Weekly] Keep reading »

Why Are Women More Into God Than Men?

This is interesting: a new study done by Trinity College confirmed that more women than men believe in God. In a survey of Americans who claim to be unaffiliated with any religion, 19 percent of men were nonbelievers while only 12 percent of women were. These stats are particularly ironic because, historically, major religions have not been, err, particularly kind or accommodating to women, not to mention the huge elephant in the room — that many major religions don’t have female leaders. So what gives? Why are the ladies more committed to God in spite of the obvious lack of preferential treatment? Keep reading »

My, That’s A Slutty Lamp You’ve Got On Your Table

We’ve seen humans as furniture before, but Atelier Van Lieshout‘s latest exhibition of work at the Carpenters Workshop Gallery in London puts fiberglass figures into some compromising positions. According to a press release, AVL has based sculptural works on the human body since the ’80s.”With a fascination bordering on obsession with the human body, this collection continues to explore new shapes and forms influenced by the human figure with all imperfections and complexities carefully manipulated to create functional sculptures that are at once abstract but also familiar.” Pretty hoity-toity commentary, considering the lamp above looks like a person slobbing a giant knob.

This Is Sick: Balloon Boy Barfs On Live TV


Alright, WTF is going on with this “Balloon Boy” story? For starters, can we stop calling Falcon Heene that, because, remember, he wasn’t actually in the balloon. Secondly, was this a hoax or not? The family appeared on “Larry King” last night and Falcon seemingly called out his parents for faking the whole incident saying, “You guys said we did this for the show ….” Then this morning, the whole family appeared again on “Today” and his dad, Richard, said he was appalled that anyone would even suggest they staged this whole thing for publicity. Meanwhile, poor little Falcon barfed during the interview and Meredith Vieira and his father ignored it and continued on with the interview. Someone take the cameras off these people and put that little boy to bed. Keep reading »

Quickies: Anna Nicole Smith’s Sordid Death & Taylor Swift’s “SNL” Hosting Opp

  • Hearings have begun concerning Anna Nicole Smith‘s last painful days when she was too weak to walk and could only drink Pedialyte through a baby bottle. [L.A. Times] — The more that’s revealed about her story, the sadder and sorrier that it becomes.
  • A road map for how women pick their Halloween costumes! Does it apply to you? [Maxim]
  • The International Glove Association fears for the future of mittens. Apparently, as people become obese, they store more heat and the extra comes out through the extremities, heating the hands. With more Americans being categorized as obese, fewer folks may require the mittens. [AOL] — International Glove Association? No more mittens? This is just too weird.

Today’s Lady News: The End Of Heinous Menstrual Cramps?

  • Doctors are working on a new drug for women who suffer painful menstrual cramps, also called dysmenorrhea. The drug is named VA111913, manufactured by a British company, and it’s being tested on 128 women who say awful cramps interfere with their daily lives. [NY Daily News]
  • A woman who was raped 24 years ago, before the advent of DNA testing, is fighting a backlog on “rape kits,” in which DNA information is collected to identify the attacker.

[CNN]
  • An Arizona mother of three will give birth to her fourth child 300 miles away at a hospital in Phoenix. Why? The closest hospital to her home refuses to assist with a vaginal birth after a woman has had a C-section (called a VBAC). [CNN]

Trays Make You Look Like You Have Your Crap Together!

trays m jpg
If you’re anything like me, you’ve got piles of mail, loads of little bottles littering the bathroom, keys, sunglasses, tubes of lotions, et cetera, et cetera. The one super-fast way to tidy up? Buy a pretty tray. Not only do they provide order when there is absolutely none (think: that surface where you drop everything and anything when you first walk in the door after work!) and make sense of even the most desperately random items, but they corral and pretty-up spots like your coffee table. Check out the coffee table belonging to The Moment‘s Rita Konig. Without the tray you have a bunch of tiny, unrelated items, but add that organizational sucker and you have a small decor vignette. After the jump, a few great tray options; use ‘em all over your house.

“The Tyra Show” Really Is Full Of Crap

Just when you thought that Tyra Banks couldn’t be any more full of s**t, she is. America’s Next Top Egomaniac will embarrass herself and the rest of the country by giving some poor woman a colonic on tomorrow’s episode. Tyra! Nooo! How much do you want to bet that this will somehow become a forum for Tyra to talk about how good-looking her anal cavity is? The worst part of this stunt is that the show is calling this the “first-ever televised colonic.” Well, shut your butt Tyra, because Katie Couric has been there and done that. She showed the entire world her pretty little colon on the “Today” show in 2002. And it wasn’t just because she wanted footage of her “smeyesing” a**hole—she wanted to raise awareness about colon cancer. See the clip of Katie’s colonoscopy after the jump. Tyra … we fart on you.
