Kidnapping Victim Found Alive 18 Years Later

Let’s start Friday off on a happy/incredibly disturbing note, shall we? In 1991, Jaycee Dugard, 11, was kidnapped and presumed dead. This week, a woman walked into a police station in the Bay Area and told officers that she was Dugard, now 29. She had been kidnapped and kept a prisoner in the backyard of Phillip Garrido, a registered sex offender and religious fanatic, and his wife, Nancy. Garrido had raped her repeatedly over the years, fathering two children, now 11 and 15. Dugard and the girls were kept in tents and sheds in the Garridos’ backyard and police suspect that this week might have been the first time she or her children had left the compound. The three have since been reunited with Dugard’s family and the Garridos will be arraigned today. [LA Times] Keep reading »

John Mayer’s $25,000 Mugshot

Yesterday, after Fall Out Boy singer Patrick Stump was arrested for driving without a license, John Mayer admitted he’d been arrested for the same offense and then Twittered a challenge to Harvey Levin at TMZ: “produce my mugshot, [and] I will donate 25k to the charity of [your] choice.” He even gave a hint: “in the first half of the naughts, in the home of the Brave.” Mayer, it turns out, had been arrested in May 2001 in Atlanta (the case was dismissed the following month). TMZ did manage to score the mugshot, but The Smoking Gun beat them by about five minutes in publishing it. Still, John never said TMZ had to be the first site to produce the photo. So, true to his word, he coughed up $25,000 to be split between the two charities TMZ chose (Pet Orphans and Ace of Hearts, two animal shelters in California). Call it a creative publicity stunt, but I say it’s nice to see a celebrity arrest result in such a happy ending. [via TMZ] Keep reading »

Pace High School Will Educate You, Whether It’s The Porn Site Or The Public School

Whatever you do, do not go to PaceHighSchool.com. It’s NSFW or for children for that matter. Sure it sounds innocent, but this high school has a whole other kind of bell-ringing going on — the kinky kind. A Florida high school full of innocent teenagers shares its name with a Canadian porn site full of “Blubbery Bitches,” “Booty Crushers,” and “Wild Party Whores.” Sounds educational to us! The site, run by PimpRoll, doesn’t even require you to confirm you’re of legal age. But, despite parental complaints, the real Pace High School principal can’t do much to clear his school’s name on the net. “It is their right to do this and we exhausted all possibilities to see if there was anything we could do,” said Principal Frank Lay. (Ha, principal Lay watches his Pace!) The school decided to register PaceHighSchool.net as their domain instead. Hey, at least the real Pace High School is keepin’ up with the times and getting on, not gettin’ it on, the internet. [NWF Daily News] Keep reading »

What Does The Row Look Like, Really?

Between Mary-Kate‘s bag-lady hippie style, Ashley’s newfound sophistication, and those fun-in-a-traumatic-way memories of the Tanner twins, it’s kind of hard to think of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen as legitimate, serious designers. Perhaps that’s why we’ve more or less ignored The Row since its launch a few seasons ago. But, all of a sudden, every big fashion person and their mother, from New York Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn to Barney’s New York director Julie Gilhart, can’t sing The Row’s praises loudly enough. So we’re finally listening. And kicking ourselves for being dismissive for so long.

We browsed The Row’s early fall offerings on Barney’s site and, though pricey, we now understand why everyone’s saying their sales will jump 30 percent this season. Check out a few of their classic-cool best pieces after the jump. Could they actually be celeb designers that we’d want to encourage? Keep reading »

L’Chaim: Grover And Jake Gyllenhaal To Star In “Shalom Sesame”

Oy gevalt! How psyched are we that Jake Gyllenhaal, Christina Applegate, Ben Stiller, and Debra Messing are helping Grover out in a 12-part series called “Shalom Sesame,” a Jewish version of “Sesame Street.” The show will teach bubbelehs about Jewish culture, complete with a visit to Israel to check out important landmarks. The show has been done before in 1986 and 1990, with stars like Joan Rivers, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Mary Tyler Moore. The premiere of the new version will be circa Hanukkah 2010. I’ll totally be breaking out the Manischewitz, matzo, and macaroons for that one! Now let’s see if I can convert, marry a nice Jewish boy, and produce some half-Jewish babies in time for the launch!

Today’s Lady News: The Reason You’re Afraid Of Spiders Is…

  • Scared of spiders? Me, too. A study by David Rakison, a developmental psychologist at Carnegie Mellon University, suggests us females might actually be genetically predisposed to fear creepy-crawlies and dangerous animals. He showed 10 baby girls and boys pictures of spiders and found that the girls associated fear with spiders more quickly than boys did. Rakison said this suggests a possible genetic disposition by women (thanks to humans’ hunter-gatherer ancestry) to avoid danger. [New Scientist]—Or could it could be because we’re prissy.

    Care For Some Afternoon DemocraTea?

    Tea Baggers (heh) may be rallying against Obama‘s tax proposals, but perhaps they don’t know that Mr. President is a Tea Bagger (haha) himself. Thanks to a German design company called Donkey Products, you can now dunk political figures affixed to sachets to flavor your afternoon cup. The line comes in three collections: DemocraTea, depicting world leaders, StripTea with naughty strippers, or RoyalTea with Tony Blair and the Queen herself. RoyalTea, we’d imagine, would contain an English brew, but we’re curious as to what the others would be. Guesses for Vladimir Putin’s flavor? [Gizmodo.com] Keep reading »
