Alabama Not Such a Sweet Home For The Sex Toy Industry

In a supreme stroke of moronic-ness, this Friday Alabama’s Supreme Court upheld a 1998 ban on selling sex toys on Friday. It’s still perfectly legal to go Down South on yourself in private, thank God. But Alabama’s highest court said the legislature is allowed to ban the sale of sex tales in public, meaning it’s a crime to sell someone a vibrator or a paddle! A sex shop in Hoover, AL, called Love Stuff challenged the ban on the grounds it violated a horny person’s right to sexual privacy, yet the heat-addled judicial brains in Alabama upheld the ban as matter of public morality. Sorry, but the only thing morally wrong with this is making the good folks of Alabama wait 3-5 business days for a vibe to come in the mail. [The Birmingham News] Keep reading »

Police Officer By Day, Prostitute By Night

Talk about a double life! British female police officer Victoria Thorne, 29, is on her way to jail for the next 15 months for moonlighting as a call girl at an escort agency called “Notorious Girls.” The corrupt cop had been working as a prostitute since 2006 and made about $150 per hour, servicing about 20 dudes a week. Sometimes she brought her extracurricular work home with her, although she usually did the deed at hotels. She made a special effort not to meet with Johns in the district where she works and swears she never wore her uniform in any of the proceedings. But Thorne did use police computers to score info about rival brothels for “Notorious Girls” owner Neil Lock. With her help, Neil was able to expand his business quite a bit. That is until someone saw her sexy pics on the “Notorious Girls” website, under the name Kelly, and started investigating her. Eight other women were arrested in the year-long sting aimed at outing prostitutes and corrupt officials.

So while we believe she never wore her uniform as a working girl, we wonder if she ever handcuffed her clients? [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

When Will I Stop Being Angry?

So, it’s been a year since I got dumped. Frankly, I would not blame any of you for being at the point of thinking – if not saying – “Why the f**k hasn’t this bitch gotten over this yet?” I wonder the same thing myself.

There’s that saying that it takes half the length of the relationship to “get over it.” If that were the case, I would have another year and four months to go, God help me! But actually, I’m over the heartbreak. There’s not one ounce of me that’s still physically attracted to him. While I miss the friendship we had, the way he made me laugh, the sweet things he would do, like plate the dinner he made from scratch like we were dining at a fancy restaurant, and the fun we had traveling together, I don’t miss him as my boyfriend at all. That feels so amazing, I cannot even tell you. I could do cartwheels! (If I could do cartwheels, that is.)

How Do We Feel About Amber Rose’s “Avant Garde” Contact Lenses?

Despite how hectic our Fashion Week schedules are around here, we had a chance to pop by the Persona magazine launch party and run into Kanye West (of course), music-and-more mogul Russell Simmons, kooky supermodel Janice Dickinson, and, of course, cover model of the new issue, Amber Rose. How gorgeous is Miss Rose in person? Ridiculously so. Who else could get away with that controversial hairdo? And while her skintight silver jumpsuit was superhero chic, the Marilyn Manson-esque eyeballs she was sporting were a tad too high concept for us. But judging from all the Kanye/Amber PDA going on between those two, he is totally into them. So there you have it. Check out Persona here. Keep reading »

Tom Ford’s New Film Not About Fashion, But Still Full Of Style


You may or may not remember that American designer Tom Ford took some time away from his busy fashion and beauty career to make a film. And while some people were critical of this move, having met and chatted the night away with Ford a couple of years ago, I was struck by how incredibly intelligent, creative, passionate and just downright cool he was. Basically, I’ve totally had his back on this the whole time. (Like he cares, but anyway.) So that very film premiered this weekend in Venice and the reviews are stellar! Julianne Moore is fantastic (no surprise there) and there are already Best Actor rumors swirling around male star, Colin Firth. Also to be expected, Ford brings style to the table with a moody palette, gorgeous costumes and a beautiful soundtrack. Can’t wait to see the whole thing! Keep reading »

Rebecca Taylor’s Bow Hair: Difficult, Yet Not Impossible

Never have we wanted to be tied up so badly than after seeing this phenomenal hairstyle from Rebecca Taylor‘s Spring 2010 runway show. It breaks our heart to find out that the hairstyle, designed by Rodney Cutler of Cutler Salon, pretty much requires professional assistance (apparently three professionals), and most of the bows were in fact pre-made pieces (see our “Cute Crap I Wanna Put On My Head” post for similar). Cutler, however, must have anticipated the real-girl desire for new style as he was prepared with an alternative: “If you can’t do a bow on yourself, do a twisty bun in back and turn it on its side do you can fan out some of the hair for the same effect.” Cutler suggests a middle part, but we think a deep side part would really rock the style out.

“Racy” Twilight Books Banned From Schools In Australia

Despite the fact that Stephenie Meyer‘s books are public service announcements for saving yourself ’til marriage, some elementary and middle schools in Australia are banning the Twilight series books for being too racy. Man, I don’t know what Twilight books these peeps were reading, but the one I read was 544 pages of agonizing blue balls. Though, in a roundabout way, fretful grownups could be doing these kids a favor, as one school librarian told Australia’s Daily Telegraph about the censorship, “We wanted to make sure [the students] realize it’s fictitious and ensure they don’t have a wrong grasp on reality.” Good point. In reality, Bella would’ve ripped the clothes off a hottie like Edward and boned that vampire ass, stat. Keep reading »
