Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
In the future, we’ll look back on this time in history and think of it in two parts — Before Charlie Sheen Went Nuts and After Charlie Sheen Went Nuts. I barely remember before and it’s only been, what, a week? While I think we can acknowledge that we’re witnessing a person’s complete mental breakdown before our eyes — which, regardless of whether you like him or not, is sad, especially given that he has children — that hasn’t stopped the web from reveling in his truly epic display of stellar insanity. Keeping clicking to glimpse the best of the web’s Sheen-inspired spoofs, memes, and videos.
Some politicians are more concerned with your naughty bits than, oh, children from the wealthiest nation in the world who go to bed hungry and American soldiers being killed in Afghanistan. Take Representative Steve King (R-Iowa), for instance. Rep. King is one of the busybody pols trying to de-fund Planned Parenthood because it provides abortions. And they’ve been successful, which is scary: just two weeks ago the House of Representatives actually voted to do it! Personally I think it’s B.S. enough that these jerks are more concerned with your and my sex life than they are with creating jobs, funding schools and bringing soldiers home from war. But the reasons get totally laughable. Keep reading »
“If I do something stupid, which is pretty much the whole time, I hate it … Obviously, they’re only going to put the good stuff in, and the good stuff is us drunk, so all I’m seeing is me drunk and falling down. That’s how I am when I party, but some of the stuff I do is, like, ‘Really, Nicole?’ I look like a freakin’ alcoholic. I’m like, ‘You’re sweating, your makeup is running, you look gross.’ I just look like s**t .”
– Snooki in Rolling Stone on how she comes off on “Jersey Shore.” I appreciate Snooki’s brutal honesty. I think that’s what makes her such a lovable little meatball. That being said, I totally support her not getting drunk in front of the camera anymore. I think she’s better than that. Also, I happen to find her highly entertaining while sober.

Two years ago, after nearly 15 years of blow drying, flat ironing, highlighting, and dying, I was officially in a hair rut. I sat in the stylist’s chair. My hairdresser Tommy, a twentysomething, tattooed hipster was running his hands through my lackluster locks.
“I am 30 years old, ” I said, “I want rocking hair.” Keep reading »
UPDATE: John Galliano has released a statement in which he apologizes, says “I must face up to my own failures” and announces he is headed to rehab. Read the full statement here.
Sometimes I make the mistake of thinking people in creative, free-thinking professions like writing or fashion design have progressive views to back them up. My mistake. Designer John Galliano was arrested last week and fired from Dior yesterday after video tape surfaced of him slurring at patrons in a Paris café, “I love Hitler. … People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f**king gassed.” Indefensible, right? But bizarrely, fashion designer Patricia Field from “Sex and the City,” “The Devil Wears Prada,” and “Confessions Of A Shopaholic,” has come to his defense. Keep reading »
Just when Charlie Sheen finds his babysitting goddesses, Brooke Mueller files a restraining order against him and has authorities pull their sons, 23-month-old twins Bob and Max, from his house. Brooke says Charlie took the boys on February 26 and hasn’t allowed her contact since. “I am very concerned that he is currently insane,” she said in the biggest “no duh” statement of the year. “I am in great fear that he will find me and attack me and I am in great fear for the children’s safety while in his care.” [People]
Charlie, of course, is taking the battle to the media. Keep reading »
