    Chris Brown Starts Community Labor

    I know what you’re thinking—there’s a typo in the headline and that it should be “Chris Brown Starts Community Service.” But you’re wrong—Brown’s judge specifically sentenced him to hard “labor,” and his supervising police chief has grand plans for him to remove graffiti, pick up trash, wash cars, and maintain grounds. Chris whacking weeds has already drawn lots of media and fans who want to watch (thanks for the boring videos, guys?), so he had to personally pay for extra guards to protect him. Hopefully after six months worth of hard labor, Chris will think twice before laying a hand on a lady. Also, someone make him put a shirt on. [LA Times] Keep reading »

    “The Real Housewives Of Orange County” Finally Gets Interesting In The Fifth Season

    Although “The Real Housewives of Orange County” was the first in the franchise, the show has been like an annoying stepsister since “The Real Housewives of New York City” premiered, because the O.C. women only seem to shop, booze, and complain. However, that all seems to change in the upcoming fifth season. Keep reading »

    Etienne Aigner Re-Releases Bags From The ’60s And ’70s

    Back in the days before Marc Jacobs, Botkier, and Foley + Corinna, the handbag label to carry was Etienne Aigner. The company’s namesake apprenticed for Christian Dior and Cristobal Balenciaga before he started making belts out of his apartment in a single shade of burgundy leather because, as a young designer, he decided it would be cheaper to work in one color. The line grew from belts to other accessories, and the deep reddish leather became the brand’s signature. Aigner died in 2002, but his brand has lived on, sometimes following trends we haven’t been fans of. But now, to celebrate the company’s 60th anniversary, a handful of handbags designed in the ’60s and ’70s have been re-released, and they’re gorgeous. Since my mom didn’t save any of her bags for me, I’m going to buy one (they’re all under $200) and pretend it’s vintage, but — bonus! — it won’t have that funky thrift store smell.

    Mario Lopez Doesn’t Look So Manly Now

    Lest he get typecast as a beefcake, “actor” and “America’s Best Dance Crew” host Mario Lopez is showing his, uh, feminine side on the new season of “Nip/Tuck.” Reprising his role as plastic surgeon “Dr. Mike Hamoui” on the hit F/X show, Lopez dons a sexy lingerie getup in one scene. Wonder if the outfit has anything to do with his character’s rumored sexual relationship with dangerous hottie Kimber? Head on over to Popbytes to see a preview of season six, which premieres Oct. 14. [Popbytes] Keep reading »

    “Pimp Your Vocab” Book Teaches British Parents About Teenglish

    I learned two things from Pimp Your Vocab by Lucy Tobin, a book that attempts to decipher British kids’ “Teenglish.” Numbero uno: no matter how hard adults try to pin down and define teenage slang, they always end up sounding hopelessly out of touch and weird. I mean, really, peeps felt the need to include “cool beans” in this volume!? Isn’t that from, like, forevs ago? Also, when you define “woop woop” as “noise made to denote happiness,” well, we can’t help but laugh. BTW, British kids have some very, very odd slang. Apparently, in England “blud” means friend and “soz” is sorry. After the jump, check out some other vocab that I’m really glad hasn’t reached the States. Keep reading »

    Shun, Shag, Or Marry: The Men Of Our New Fave TV Shows

    Now that the drought of summer TV is over, there is a new swarm of drool-worthy actors on the small screen. No matter what your type is, there is a show specifically catering to your needs. “Melrose Place” boasts a cast of sketchy brooding dudes, but are they worth killing for? Equally brooding but more blood-thirsty is the cast of “The Vampire Diaries.” Then there’s the sweet, song-happy men of “Glee.” Which male cast has us the most smitten? Here’s who we’d shun, shag, and marry. Keep reading »

    Hofstra Student Says Oops! She Wasn’t Gang-Raped After All

    Earlier this week we were upset to hear an 18-year-old woman at Hofstra University on Long Island had allegedly been gang-raped by five men in a dorm bathroom. Each day, we read increasingly troubling newspaper reports describing how the student had gone back to a dorm room with one of the alleged rapists who took her phone at a frat party. There, she said, five men took her to a stall in the men’s bathroom, tied her up with rope and gang-raped her.

    But guess what? Apparently, it’s not true. Today the District Attorney for Nassau County on Long Island reported that the accuser, whom she called “very troubled,” told police the sex was consensual. When the young woman was told the incident may have been caught on video tape, she admitted she’d lied. Keep reading »
