What’s Fair Punishment For Lying About Rape?

The Hofstra University freshman who lied about a gang rape and sent four innocent young men to jail won’t spend any time behind bars herself. Last week, a prosecutor opted not to file criminal charges against Danmel Ndonye, 18, in exchange for her undergoing one year of mental health treatment and performing 250 hours of community service.

Strengthen Your Lady Parts With Semi-Precious Stone Eggs

In July, we learned about the woman with the world’s strongest vagina. Tatiana Kozhevnikova spent 15 years strengthening her lady parts with custom-made glass balls and worked her way up to lifting 31 lbs.

The practice of strengthening your hoo-ha by putting a ball up there isn’t new, though it’s not something we hear much about these days. Apparently, these exercises go back to ancient China, when the queen and concubines were taught how to do them in the Royal Palace so they would please the king while making love. Keep reading »

Star Couplings: Khloe Kardashian Gets Married, But Is It Legal?

  • So, Khloe Kardashian married her boyfriend of one second, Lamar Odom, on Sunday. However, because they wanted E! to pick up the tab (in exchange for it being filmed for her reality show), they didn’t have time to work out the pre-nup deets and, therefore, it might not be legally binding? [Page Six] — Whatever, I still think this wedding was of the shotgun variety.

  • OMG, Javier Bardem totes went to the gyno with Penelope Cruz which means she must be pregnant!!! [NY Daily News] — Or he was just nice enough to come along to her pap smear?

    The Edgy Olympics!

    rihanna 092809 m jpg
    Lately I’ve noticed that more and more R&B, hip-hop, and pop stars are going the way of Rihanna and edging out their looks. Whether it’s rocking a fauxhawk, going with crazy colored nail polish and lipstick, sporting the oddest ’80s-inspired threads, or cropping their hair, today’s music scene It Girls are in competition to prove who is the edgiest.

    Sometimes You Shouldn’t Mind Your Own Business

    On Friday night I was on my way back to my apartment, late at night, with a couple of friends in tow. I live in a really hoppin’ area so there were tons of people on the streets. Suddenly, I overheard a guy screaming at a woman, who was wedged into a corner near a building. I was a few sheets to the wind myself, so I can’t remember exactly what he was saying to her, but I immediately noticed her cowering, a look of fear on her face. I stopped and watched for a moment. My friends were encouraging me to catch up and not worry about what was, in their eyes, a lovers’ quarrel. I didn’t move. The man continued to scream at the woman and then started to walk off, while she stood, unable to move. I need to do something, I thought to myself. This doesn’t seem right. Keep reading »

    Joan Holloway Doesn’t Need Weight Watchers

    I’ve written here before about how Joan Holloway makes me feel better about myself. With her flame hair, pale skin and curvy figure, she and I could be sisters. It’s been a real boost to my confidence to see someone who looks like me get so much positive attention for her appearance. It’s been especially gratifying to watch Christina Hendricks, the actress who plays Joan, really own her curves in an industry that preys on insecurities and exploits anything that differs from the norm (in this case, stick-thin figures). So I was a little confused when I read an article in the Daily Mail this morning that accuses Hendricks of succumbing to pressures of the “body fascists” by losing weight. As proof of her drastic weight loss, the paper presents a photo of Hendricks taken at last week’s Emmy Awards where she looks, to me, just as curvy and lovely as ever. “She’d lost weight from her face, arms and bottom,” Hendricks’ weight-watcher accuses, “and her glorious hourglass shape had changed into something dangerously close to the typical Hollywood lolly-stick with breasts.” Wha?? Was the author seeing the same photo that I am? If Hendricks is “dangerously close to typical Hollywood,” then I’m lunching at the Ivy and giving crotch-shots to the paparazzi swarming outside my limo. Keep reading »

    For The Week Of September 28-October 4, 2009

    Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

    Settle any debts — either monetary or emotional — and get your power back. Whatever circumstance has been making you feel insecure lately will be magically reversed, but only if you wish to see you are way above what has entrapped you. From here the future is open, beautiful and full of bright new opportunities!

    Libra (September 23 – October 22)

    Sublime forces are at work, settling your mind and body into a state of total relaxation and bliss by the week’s end. This will come in the form of utter apathy or finally getting all the pieces of the puzzle put in their proper place and realizing what a good thing you have. Either/or, expect that you’ll get all the insight you need to plan your next move.

    Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

    People who think you have all day have you all wrong. If they inherently aren’t getting the basic side of you, making you feel special in one form or another, realize they won’t ever. Real romance doesn’t mean working hard to prove yourself. If they don’t get the awesomeness that is you STAT, they aren’t for you, end of discussion.

    Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

    Reality is about to shine its light upon your ego and show the enormity of importance that you live your life under. Not to say you shouldn’t think you’re that delightful, but consider that perhaps, maybe perhaps, your baby has got a point in how one-sided your points of view are. Time to take a good look in the mirror and start owning up to being a “we,” not just a “me.”

    Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

    Unfortunately, this is the week when your relationship isn’t just about you and your boo — but your families too. Whoever’s relatives are coming into the picture, yours or his, it won’t be pretty. Seems disaster will plague you, as drama, raucous opinions and just utterly bad behavior will be happening. How you both deal with this will be a true testament of your bond.

    Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

    Put your feelings out there and let go. Free yourself of the shackle and chains in which you bear your emotions alone. Tear down the barriers; say what you want and how you want it. If all will work out, it will, but if you want action, it’ll mean taking responsibility for yourself and throwing the ball in their court. After all, it’s never going to work unless you’re both playing.

    Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

    A jolt to your long-term thinking is going to happen and sudden changes to your trajectory are in the stars. Don’t be surprised if you unexpectedly get sick of routines and the comfort zone you are in and crave a lot more excitement. Sure, this might just be a wild lost week or it could be a whole new way of life. Whichever, be open to anything!

    Aries (March 21 – April 19)

    Laying down the law means no more negotiating. As compassionate as you may be to hear another’s sob story, realize that a deadline is a deadline and once they have passed the time allotted, you have to stand on it as is. After all, if they can’t work at your speed, what kind of wavelength are they on? Do you really need to spend your precious time waiting? Think not.

    Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

    Stop looking for excuses to bury your head in. Time to drop the rose-colored glasses and get back in the trenches. Just coasting along, thinking everything will fall into place isn’t going to happen. If it was going to, it would have already. Time for action and realizing you have to be the one to steer your destiny — as in picking a destination — instead of letting one pick you.

    Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

    A hotheaded friend may explode at any given minute. Seems pent-up feelings about how you’re dealing with your current dalliances and their fascist opinions will clash this week. Although you’ll do whatever you want to do anyway, do realize the judgmental police are out and waiting for you to mess up. While this doesn’t sound nice, do consider they may have some insight.

    Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

    Career woes are about to come to a close, freeing up your mind and self-esteem back to normal levels and giving you the ability to start acting out on your whims. Expect a wild surge of emotions to come flooding in and go with it. Consider this acting out of your subconscious to be the most emotionally truth-revealing experience you’ve had in ages.

    Leo (July 23 – August 22)

    Always being the cheerleader is a pain the ass and a fairly thankless job if you aren’t rooting for the right team. This week, put down those pompoms and see what happens when you aren’t the one valiantly supporting relationship matters at hand. After all, it takes two. If you aren’t feeling the same enthusiasm back, this is the time to deal with it.

    Quote Of The Day: Mika Can Assure You Lady Gaga Is A Woman

    “She doesn’t have a penis. She came to my house in her underwear and I saw no hint of a penis. She thought it was appropriate attire. She can get away with it. She knows what she’s doing. She ain’t no fool. She’s brilliant. I think she’s a good role model for girls. She plays with sex and makes it unsexy on purpose – so outrageous it’s approachable.”

    Jenny Slate Makes Her Debut On “SNL” By Dropping The F-Bomb

    And this is her face just seconds after doing it. Jenny Slate, the newest addition to “Saturday Night Live,” kick-started her time on the seminal comedy show by accidentally letting the F-bomb slip during the show’s season premiere. (An NBC spokeswoman told Radaronline.com that Slate will not be fired. We should all be so lucky!) I would say that Lorne Michaels is probably pissed, except the episode was so not funny, that he’s probably grateful for the distraction. Watch the clip here. Keep reading »
