“The Cosby Show” matriarch Claire Huxtable was a woman of formidable strength, shoulder pads and style. Since we’re celebrating cool moms this week, in honor of Mother’s Day, we’d be remiss to leave Ms. Hux out: Her superior ’80s wear showed everyone–including hubby Cliff–who really was the boss.

Last night on “60 Minutes,” reporter Lara Logan
shared with the world the horrific beating and sexual assault
she suffered in Egypt
‘s Tahrir Square while reporting on the country’s revolution. Since the incident
on February 11, the world knew Logan had been separated from her producer, cameramen and bodyguards and assaulted by a mob of angry men.

In a 13-minute long segment on “60 Minutes,” Logan gave a firsthand account of being at first molested and then raped “with their hands”

Because how do you top a wedding watched by two billion people around the world? With a balls-to-the-wall honeymoon, of course. The exact location of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s honeymoon is said to be known by the gossip press, but is being kept a secret out of respect for the couple — in part because Kate reportedly does not know the exact location herself!

I know it’s poor form to crucify one person for more than one stupid statement per interview, but here goes. Now, that we’ve expressed our anger over the Will.i.am condom comment in Elle, I would like to address his musings on baby wipes.
[My pet peeve is if a woman's] got only dry toilet paper and no baby wipes next to the toilet … Here’s proof on why people should have baby wipes. Get some chocolate, wipe it on a wooden floor, and then try to get it up with some dry towels. You’re going to get chocolate in the cracks. That’s why you gotta get them baby wipes.
