Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Some vehicle engineer at BMW thought they’d put a “gentleman function” in the 2009 BMW 750i. What is a “gentleman function,” you ask? On the driver’s side door, there is a switch allowing the driver to adjust the passenger’s seat—forward, backward, up, down.
It registers a “meh” on the chivalry scale. And with a name like the “gentleman function,” it’s clear what kind of genitalia BMW thinks is behind the wheel of their cars. Really, if the BMW did something chivalrous as a “gentleman function,” I’d prefer it paid for dinner. [Edmunds Inside Line] Keep reading »
OctoMom Nadya Suleman has decided to continue her torturous reign over us all. She’s at long last signed a reality TV show deal. It still has to be approved by a judge, but if this crazy concept gets the OK, each of OctoMom’s 14 kids will be raking in $250 per day and could make about $250,000 in three years. It’s good they won’t be poor, but the idea that this wacked-out family is going to be out there for all the world to see makes me a tad uncomfortable. The company behind this is also responsible for masterpieces like “The Biggest Loser.” Taping is set to begin on September 1st which, coincidentally, is also the day I’ll be leaving the country. Forever. [Us Magazine] Keep reading »
Remeber those things, what were they called? Oh yeah! Albums. Back in the day, before we had iTunes, Limewire, YouTube and other internet-y things we actually had to physically buy disks containing music from a real, 3-D store! Well those days are over. But wait, Apple is saying, not so fast. Keep reading »
In 1992, a 16-year-old girl named Amy Fisher pointed a gun at Mary Jo Buttafuoco’s face and fired it. Amy had been having an affair with Mary Jo’s husband, Joey Buttafuoco, and his wife didn’t even know anything was going on until that day. Mary Jo survived the close-range gunshot wound, and she ended up staying with her husband for 10 years, while he reportedly lied about the affair and more. Now, Mary Jo has a new book, Getting It Through My Thick Skull: Why I Stayed, What I Learned, and What Millions of People Involved with Sociopaths Need to Know in which she discusses her former husband’s supposedly sociopathic behavior. Since there has been a lot of debate lately about why women stay in bad relationships, here’s a clip of Mary Jo explaining herself. From the sound of Joey’s statement in response, his ex-wife might get into trouble for pronouncing him a sociopath. [Good Morning America] Keep reading »
You know all those pretty little floral sundresses we’ve been advocating lately? Well, we wouldn’t want to leave you high and dry with a closet full of unwearable clothing come fall, so we’ve rounded up a handful of motorcycle jackets and vests to take those prints well into the cooler season, and possibly even winter (with black leather boots and opaque tights, of course). Some of the options veer towards the splurge-y side, but nice leather is one of those things worth spending on.
We like the perforated leather (look really closely and you can see the tiny holes punched into it), on this jacket. [$260, Topshop]
It’s undeniable that marriage and relationships in general look nothing like they did 40 years ago. What’s happened? Women’s lib, skyrocketing divorce rates, the death of the nuclear family — and that’s just for starters. The whole game has changed. Sometimes I think that each generation exhibits a reactionary trend to their predecessors. I am part of the “divorced parents” era. Although my parents are still married, about 60 percent of all people I meet my age come from broken homes. While this phenomenon didn’t necessarily make us “anti-marriage,” it has certainly made us “marriage cautious” or “marriage disillusioned.” As a modern woman I know the statistics – if I ever do tie the knot, I know it ain’t gonna be all sunshine and roses. And that’s why I plan to be as sure as I can possibly, possibly be. Before I exchange any vows, I’ve made a vow to myself: I MUST live with someone before I marry him. I’m not alone in this thinking. About 70 percent of couples are cohabitating before marriage these days. Keep reading »
Simcha rocks a very distinct look on a daily basis — eyeshadow and cat eyeliner, ruby red lips, plenty of bling and a pompadour. And she looks rad. But when she told us that the only people who’ve seen her sans the war paint are her bedfellows, we decided it was time for a make-under, just so she’d have a look to bust out on days when she wants to sleep in and stuff. The dramatic “after,” an oh-so-informative video and the products we used, after the jump! Keep reading »
Will the adult movie spoofs ever end? We think not. Now that Porn Valley has spoofed “The Cosby Show,” Sarah Palin’s career, and Lindsay Lohan’s life, they’re tackling the realty TV dating trainwreck that is “Rock of Love” with the aptly titled “Crock of Love.” Starring Evan Stone, the porn star who appeared in that XXX-clip that “accidentally” aired during the Super Bowl, as Brüte Michaels, viewers will witness “rose ceremonies, bitchy girl fights, emotional testimonials and fame-hungry women baring their souls (among other things) as they try to scratch, claw and sleep their way into Brüte’s life.” Sounds about right. Release date is Aug. 4 — if you’re, uh, into that sort of thing. Keep reading »
- Farrah Fawcett left the bulk of her $5.5 million estate to her son Redmond O’Neal. Her longtime partner Ryan O’Neal was reportedly excluded. [PopEater] — For all we know, Ryan and Farrah could have agreed that the money was better left to Redmond.
- Marc Anthony gave Jennifer Lopez another 40th birthday party, only this time, it was supposed to be a surprise. [Dlisted] — Surprise, my fanny. JLo seems like the type of wife that knows everything her husband is doing at all times. Plus, she was rather dressed up.
- LeAnn Rimes made her first appearance since news of her split from husband Dean Sheremet broke. [People] — I guess she was just waiting for Eddie Cibriani’s wife to leave him.
