Today’s Lady News: Indiana Removes Breast Cancer BS From Abortion Bill

  • Thank God, an Indiana state Senate committee has removed a provision from an anti-abortion bill that required women seeking abortions be told that terminating a pregnancy increased their risk for breast cancer. A link between abortion and breast cancer is completely medically unproven but continues to be spouted by anti-abortion extremists as fact. [IndyStar.com]
  • A Northern Kentucky University professor has revived the conspiracy theory that Sarah Palin is actually the grandmother of her son, Trig, and essentially bamboozled the American people with the biggest hoax of all time. As much as I love conspiracy theories … who really cares about this one anymore? [Gawker]
  • A woman wearing a blue burka sitting on a trash heap is a controversial new ad campaign by Germany’s International Human Rights campaign. While their point may have been that women in some parts of the world are valued as little as trash, a depiction of a veiled woman as being like garbage is not right, either. [Feministing]

Reese Witherspoon Says Filming Sex Scene With Robert Patinson Was Disgusting And Snotty

“Rob possibly had the most hideous horrible cold of any co-star I’ve ever had to do a love scene with ever in my entire life. He was literally snorting and snotting through every second of it—and it was not appealing. I’m talking green, infectious, disgusting—I’m not kidding!”

Reese Witherspoon reveals that even though everyone in Hollywood may want to make out with her “Water for Elephants” co-star, Robert Pattinson, her big sex scenes with him were all the way to disgusting. Way to kill the fantasy, Reese. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Love Is Still A Battlefield

This week, “The Oprah Show” featured Pat Benatar and Avril Lavigne doing a duet of “Love Is A Battlefield,” a song that remains relevant after all these years. Pat seems to be winning the “war” seeing as she’s still with her husband of 30 years. Unfortunately, we can’t say the same about Avril. [Oprah] Keep reading »

Drew Barrymore To Teach Us “How To Be Single”

Drew Barrymore is gearing up to direct her second flick, and instead of delving into the wild world of roller derby, this time around Drew will be covering more familiar territory—the state of the single person. The movie, “How To Be Single,” is based on a novel by Luz Tucillo and will be adapted by Marc Silverstein and Abby Kohn, the scribes behind the Drew-produced “He’s Just Not That Into You.” The movie will tell the story of a group of single New Yorkers and will follow them over the course of 10 years. “Love is never gonna be a tired subject,” Drew says. “Being single, this one definitely speaks to me and I’ve explored it a lot in the last year and a half. I’m at that age where I’m sort of straddling a great line right now and I can see both sides very well… It’s hopefully, in a lot of ways, not a romantic comedy. People have this weird stigma [with] that word — it’s a turnoff to guys or whatever. But I think we’ve honed in on a style that will be more universal, a little bit ageless and not gender specific.” And with that, she has piqued my interest. [EW] Keep reading »

Leah And Corey Of “Teen Mom 2″ Have Split

If you lived anywhere near my apartment building, you would have heard a dramatic scream of “Noooooooo!” circa 9 a.m. this morning. Why? Because I read that Leah Messer and Corey Simms of “Teen Mom 2“—aka the couple I dubbed the most inspiring on television—have split after just six months of marriage. Apparently, it was Leah who did the leaving, moving out of their family home after a series of fights over money. Yesterday, she was spotted at her local courthouse and a clerk confirmed that, while she hadn’t filed anything, she had picked up divorce or custody papers.

This news makes me very, very sad. Keep reading »

Does A “Real Houswives Of New Jersey” Without Danielle Staub Smell As Sweet?

 

Mark your calendars for May 16, folks. That’s when “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” returns. Well, at least a few of them anyway—Dina Manzo called it quits midway through last season and our favorite skin suit wearer, Danielle Staub, was ousted after last season, too. But there are some new ladies filling in their slots. First there’s Melissa Gorga, who just happens to be Teresa Giudice‘s sister-in-law. Melissa is a mother of three who wants to be a pop star and has been recording tracks with producer Keith Boles. “It’s feel good music,” he explains. The second new housewife is Kathy Wakile, who happens to be Teresa’s cousin. Kathy is a mom of two and is super into throwing parties. Apparently, we have her daughter’s belly dancing themed Sweet 16 to look forward to.

But just because these new housewives are family doesn’t mean things are going to be all lovey dovey. Keep reading »
