MSNBC’s Chris Matthews suggested on his program yesterday that Huma Abedin, wife of Rep. Anthony Weiner and top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, may be “partly responsible” for the dick pics he’s been tweeting to strange women. Oh, yeah? Partly responsible for his behavior, you say? Explain that to me, please. [Think Progress]

Wendy Williams, host of GSN’s new show “Love Triangle,” has a huge ass disco ball ring and the opinions to match. For instance, in this segment of “Love It Or Leave It,” the talk show queen declares that saving yourself for marriage is one of the most “impractical” things a woman can do. Why? Watch the video to find out and then tell us whether you agree in the comments!
You might think that oppulent, over-the-top fashions begin and end with Lady Gaga, but then you (probably) haven’t met Daphne Guinness. The British socialite and artist is regularly on both sides of the best and worst dressed lists by perfecting the art of looking totally batcrackers in photos. Look at the great FACE she’s giving! Check more Guinness out after the jump.
“I say to my friends, ‘Why hasn’t X called me? Why doesn’t anyone ever pursue me?’ They’re like, ‘Probably because they’re intimidated.’ It must be the fame wall … It must be the circus that goes around me. Me, as a person, I find it hard to believe I would be intimidating … Sometimes, maybe because they feel intimidated, they feel they have to knock me down. They know perfectly well who I am, but they’ll ask me, ‘How are the Narnia films going?’ … [That's why] I’m single at the minute.”
—Emma Watson talks about her dating issues. While I can’t relate to her particular dating problem (what is the “fame wall?”), it does feel good to know that all of us—no matter how hot, or rich, or famous, or adorably British—have them. Although, I imagine being able to treat yourself to a $5,000 shopping spree after being dissed by a guy would be a great comfort. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
To make a long story out of a short story — or perhaps the other way around — “So You Think You Can Dance” may have stumbled upon The Beatles scandal of the century at their Utah auditions. I couldn’t sleep last night and decided to catch up on a little “SYTYCD” — reality TV has the same effects on me as a glass of warm milk — and I caught contestant Brittany Morgan Starr, who revealed a big secret. Ringo Starr (of the famed band The Beatles, perhaps you’ve heard of them) is her father. Brittany claimed he is in permanent hiding while another man impersonates him in the public eye. I know, so wonderfully bizarre. According to Brittany, her dad, Ringo Starr (real name: Richard Starkey), signed a contract to have another man take his identity as Ringo Starr after John Lennon was shot. And bless FOX for taking us to meet her pops, the “real” Ringo. He turned out to be a toothless man with no discernible British accent in a Sgt. costume. Somehow, my gut tells me delusion runs in the family. At least judging from Brittany’s dance skills. These kinds of segments are exactly why I watch reality TV before bed. Keep reading »
