UPDATE: Rep. Anthony Weiner admitted in a press conference today that he had sexual conversations over Facebook and sent scantily clad pics of his penis and his chest to numerous women, whom he thought were his “friends.” Weiner said he had inappropriate conversations with six women, some before his marriage began and some afterwards. Weiner claims he never met any of the women in person and didn’t have sex outside of marriage. His wife, Huma Abedin, who is the top aide to Hillary Clinton, was not beside him at the press conference, but Weiner said the couple has no plans to separate. His voice cracking, Weiner repeatedly apologized to his wife and his constituents, but said he has no intention of resigning. You can read quotes from Weiner’s press conference and watch it from the beginning at Talking Points Memo.
Rep. Anthony Weiner‘s weiner isn’t the only body part he may have photographed: today a shirtless pic of Anthony Weiner’s bare chest hit the web. As promised, conservative wonk Andrew Breitbart has been leaking saucy pics of the Democratic rep all day. Big Government posted one image this morning depicting Weiner, fully clothed, sitting next to his cats. He sent it from his AOL account along with the title, “Me and the pussys.” This newest pic of Weiner shirtless (above) makes us wonder, 1) does he wax and 2) are there more pics to come where he’s taking it all off?

It’s often the biggest companies that have the tightest reign on their public perception — and inexpensive clothing company Forever 21 is no exception. Despite their public image of being young and fun (and, oh, totally Christian), the company is really, really up in arms over WTForever21, a funny blog that chronicles the hits and misses that come out of what blogger Rachel Kane calls the “shame factory.” Forever 21 sent Kane a cease and desist letter in April, claiming that she was violating copyright and trademark laws, even though Kane clearly states on the homepage, “Just FYI, The term ‘Forever 21′ is a trademark of Forever 21, Inc. This site is not affiliated with Forever 21, Inc.” Keep reading »
MTV wasn’t the only cable network to hold an award show this weekend. On Saturday night, Spike TV threw its annual Guys Choice Awards with heavy hitters like Justin Timberlake, Scarlett Johansson, Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, and Mark Wahlberg in attendance. We, the viewing public, won’t get to see the show until Friday night at 10 p.m. But there is one moment I am really excited about. Apparently, the show boasts a “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” reunion. Even Sean Penn agreed to be part of the festivities, joining director Amy Heckerling and castmates Judge Reinhold, Robert Romanus, Brian Backer, and Forest Whitaker as Robert DeNiro inducted the iconic high school tale into the Guy Movie Hall of Fame.

I have been fascinated by the notion of going without a period since the 8th grade, when I heard about an older, incredibly beautiful girl at my school who didn’t wear underwear. I was a maxi pad user at the time — tampons did not register as an option until 10th grade — so I couldn’t understand how this chick could go panty-less during her monthly flow.
“Where does she stick her pad?” I asked a friend as we sat on the school’s front lawn giving each other hairwraps. (It was a hippie school and it was the early-’90s.)
“Oh, I heard her tell someone that she rarely gets her period because she drinks so much water.” Keep reading »
