Say it ain’t so, but a major UK consumer organization claims that spending money on fancy eye creams is like investing in horses and buggies, or erm, something like that. The group Which? tested 12 anti-wrinkle products on volunteers between 35 and 65 years old, and “found none of them came close to eliminating or reducing the appearance of lines.” Not. Even. One. As a result, they concluded that a $5 eye cream is not too different from a $50-plus one. [Belfast Telegraph]

Ooh, ooh (said like Horshack in “Welcome Back, Kotter”). I now have a really good reason why you need to watch the Miss Universe Pageant this Sunday night. Heidi Montag will be giving her first-ever live musical performance, debuting her single “Body Language” which leaked online a while back. “I am so excited to perform,” says Heidi. “This is such a miracle in life and I give thanks to God everyday for this once in a lifetime opportunity.” [People]
Here’s hoping this will be a disaster on par with Britney‘s “Gimme More” performance. The New York Post claims that asking Heidi to perform has turned into a fiasco for the show’s producers. Find out all about it, after the jump… Keep reading »
Ladies, I think we’ve all experienced that not-so-satisfying moment when we are ready for the ship to pull into the harbor, but the sail just won’t rise. An unfortunate experience for all parties involved. Well, I may have just found a too-good-to-be-true solution—Sexlets Gum For Him. That’s right. Have your man chew his way to a hard-on with this gum that claims to be a sexual enhancer formulated to help increase size, erection potency, stamina, energy and satisfaction for you and your dude. Worried about the side effects? Lighten up. It contains an “all-natural” blend of herbs and supplements which cause an increase in blood flow. And on top of all of that, it’s good for his breath! Screw Orbitz. This is the kind of gum I should be carrying around in my purse. Next time a dude asks me for some gum, I will slip him a Sexlet and just watch that ship sail. It’s a win-win.

Sometimes miracles really are possible with the power of love (and prayer). Take this story, for example. A New Zealand ecologist who lost his wedding ring in a harbor while checking for invasive plant species has found the ring over a year later. When it fell off into the murky water, “like a scene from ‘Lord of the Rings’ in slow motion,” Aleki Taumoepeau threw an anchor overboard to mark the spot and vowed to his wife of only three months that he would find it. When she offered to buy a replacement, he insisted he wouldn’t need one. Initial searches were unsuccessful, but finally, on a chilly dive during the New Zealand winter, he miraculously found the ring. “I was getting cold and tired,” Taumoepeau said, “so I said to God it would be really good to find the ring about now.” Just then, he spotted the anchor he’d thrown overboard and lying right next to it, only inches away, was his ring! “I couldn’t believe that I could see the ring so perfectly,” he said. “The whole top surface of the ring was glowing in the normally murky waters.” Now let’s hope he remembers to take it off the next time he goes searching for plant species in the bottom of the sea.

Did you see this chick who uses her funbags as a purse? Man, she can cram a lot of junk in her set. I am also a fan of putting my Grand Titons, a natural resource, to good use. In fact, I like to call my pair “nature’s pockets” because cleavage is a great place to keep a wad of cash or even your cell phone. Hey, use what ya got, right?! So, to help inspire your tittie committee to think out of the box, here are 21 things your boobs can do for you… Keep reading »
A Pennsylvania mother is suing her daughter’s school system because she said classroom bullying caused her daughter to develop anorexia.
The lawsuit alleged that in 6th grade, three boys called the girl “fat” and two more boys joined the taunting during her 7th grade school year. One year later, the girl checked into an in-patient program for an eating disorder. The family is suing Pittsburgh Public Schools because she said the school’s guidance counselor failed to deal with the alleged bullying, which would likely make it the first lawsuit of its kind.

Gwyneth Paltrow worshipers rejoice! (Are you out there? Hello? Bueller? Bueller?) The first pics of the multi-tasking celebrity’s new clothing line — a collaboration with brand Zoe Tees for British boutique Matches — have finally surfaced. (The wares are available in London, and supposedly online; however, the Matches website is down, probably because of today’s traffic surge.) The resulting pieces seem typically Gwyneth, with muted colors and that sort of non-aesthetic that beautiful, thin people can pull off—you know, girls who look gorgeous in burlap bags. Overall, the collection channels chic comfort, perfect for days spent cleansing away your toxins. For your dinner parties with “William Joel,” add some pizazz with a studded racer-back top.
What do you think? Refined basics? Or over-hyped and GOOP-y? [Grazia]

Ryan Alexander Jenkins, the “Megan Wants A Millionaire” contestant wanted for questioning after his wife, Jasmine Fiore, turned up dead and stuffed in a suitcase in a dumpster, still hasn’t been found. The police have been searching for him since Saturday. The real estate mogul is worth $2 million, and the sheriff’s department is saying that it’s very possible he used said millions to make a run for the Canadian border. They found one of Ryan’s two cars abandoned at a marina near the state line, and have a report of a man who matches his description getting off a boat in Canuckland. [E! Online]
With all this horrifying news, VH1 has decided to cancel “Megan Wants A Millionaire.” Keep reading »
The graph, released by UNICEF and based on data collected between 2001 and 2007, displays the percentages of women, by country, who believe it is OK for their husbands to hit them. The numbers are all horrifying, ranging from 6.9 percent in Serbia to a heartbreaking 90 percent in Jordan. More info here. [via Feministing] Keep reading »
