National Review writer John Derbyshire spews crap about women’s “baby batter” and turning back suffrage. [The Huffington Post] — Hurrah, conservative misogyny!
Dreamboats Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig‘s Broadway play, “A Steady Rain,” has broken the record for the highest weekly gross for a production that isn’t a musical with $1,167,954. [New York Times] — Obviously this play with this cast is from heaven. And heaven should let me have a seat inside the pearly gates.
I’ve had a couple messy breakups, but mostly they involve me being “crazy” and him being “incompetent.” Or maybe me breaking into his house and introducing the contents of my stomach to the inside of his boot? Whatever. A Houston woman brought on the crazy this week when she fried and ate her common-law husband’s goldfish! There were seven beloved goldfish which the couple bought together back when they weren’t so dysfunctional, but the couple had just had a fight about some jewelry her man bought her and took back. When the officers arrived at their apartment, she was at the dinner table with four fried fishies on her plate. (She told the po-po that she’d already eaten the other three!) No charges were filed as the case was considered a “civil matter.”
Um, there’s nothing civil about eating house pets! For her sake, I hope they were battered and deep fried because I just spent the last half hour thinking about goldfish texture and gagging (where’s that other boot?), but maybe with some tarter sauce and fries they’d be edible? What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done as a lover scorned? [AOL] Keep reading »
Lindsay Lohan seems to consider herself somewhat of a social media expert and has now found a new use for Twitter. She’s been sending out Fashion Week invitations to the Ungaro show in under 140 characters.
Any fashionista worth her wardrobe knows that she can buy trendy stuff from Forever 21, but who really has the patience to wade through all the crap and mess that plagues the actual store? We don’t, that’s for sure. So we’ll just surf the website to find all the trendy and classic (bet you didn’t think Forever 21 had “classic” in them) items to add to our autumn wardrobe. I’m really loving the Crochet Trim Sweater Cardigan because I can’t afford real Chanel, but don’t want to wear a complete knockoff. Check out 17 garments and accessories we’re loving for their design and price, after the jump.
When my jeans start feeling tight I usually blame the dryer. And while I don’t believe the dryer is entirely to blame, at least I can comfort myself with the fact that I am not alone. According to a study by Weight Watchers, 72 percent of women own clothes that no longer fit them. In fact, the average gal has over $400 worth of threads in her closet that she’s just, well, too big for. Keep reading »
This economy, it’s kind of like a bad boyfriend. It used to be sweet. It bought you dresses and took you out for cocktails, but then it changed. Now it isn’t returning your calls and maybe you are running out of shopping therapy cash. But don’t load up those credit cards! Here are 10 things you can do to find yourself and feel better without getting a haircut or buying new shoes. Keep reading »
Remember when plus-size model Lizzie Miller appeared in Glamour magazine’s September issue and caused a s**t storm of comments and letters and the general outcry of ladymag purveyors saying “Yes! Thank you! Finally!”? We also knew the magazine was planning on shooting a spread of Miller alongside other curvy ladies, including one of our heroines, Crystal Renn, and subscribers got the issue today! (Amelia reports that the photos are really, really pretty.) The crew guested on “Ellen” today and editor-in-chief Cindi Leive announced the magazine is making a commitment to showing more diversity (both in terms of size and ethnicity) in their glossy pages going forward. Only time will tell, but it’s a big step in the right direction, no? And with all the attention the mag is getting, look out for others to jump in on the action. As Cindi observes, ultimately, the fashion industry is about sales. So are magazines. Fine. If money (and people) talking is what it takes to make editors accept that women are sick of size-zero glorification, well, we’ll take it. [Ellen] Keep reading »
We were pretty shocked when Mackenzie Phillips published a book revealing that she had a decade-long sexual relationship with her father, John Phillips of The Mamas and The Papas. But we were even more surprised when she defended it, saying she was raped initially but, later on, the acts were “consensual.” This whole thing sparked a huge debate about Genetic Sexual Attraction, or GSA. Genetic Sexual Attraction is an emotional and physical attraction between family members. The feelings often start after the two have been separated for a long time and, upon reuniting, find there is something, er, more between them. Most think it’s totes wrong but there is a vocal minority that says GSA is just misunderstood. I’ll present both sides, then you can tell us what you think! Keep reading »
