“The Tyra Show” Allegedly Coached A Guest To Say Racist Things

Meet Vecente. He was a guest on “The Tyra Show” for the judgment day episode and said some really hateful and hurtful things about another guest because the guest has dark skin. As you can see from the video above, Vecente makes some statements that are really infuriating, but he reportedly claims the show’s producers and Tyra told him what kind of character he was supposed to portray. He also says the talk show is scripted. Vecente says his racist, politically incorrect statements were only for television purposes. [Media Takeout]

He could be lying as a result of the backlash he’s received since his appearance aired, but I’m pretty sure I’ve caught “The Tyra Show” using an actor as a guest at least once. I watched an episode from the first season, I believe, in which this guy who Tyra said was a lawyer in real life was supposed to pretend to be a stalker so a woman could learn not to trust men she meets just because they look wealthy. A few hours after the episode ended, I saw the same guy in a commercial for something that slips my mind. He was an actor and the commercial continued to air after that episode. Keep reading »

Quickies: Fergie Is Getting Sued For Copyright Infringement, Plus A 56-Year-Old Virgin

  • Fergie has been slapped with copyright infringement lawsuit by the little-known reggae group Groundation, which alleges she stole her song “Voodoo Doll” from a track they recorded earlier. [Starpulse] — I can believe it. She totally stole Gwen Stefani‘s style.
  • Alicia Keys threw boyfriend Swizz Beats a birthday party, and his soon-to-be ex-wife showed up and verbally assaulted Alicia. [Your Tango] — Alicia is reportedly the reason the couple split up, so the ex’s behavior is kind of understandable…and embarrassing.
  • Apparently, some people need reasons to wash their hands after peeing. [Shine] — I try not to think about all the people who don’t wash hands routinely.

Friday Roundup: It Happened This Week On The Frisky

The VMAs happened five nights ago and everyone’s still talking about Taylor Swift and Kanye West. (That means everyone pretty much ignored Lady Gaga’s look-at-me, look-at-me blood-splattered outfit. Try harder next year, honey!)

We’re drama-mongers, though, so we were tickled pink when Tay-Tay hit up “The View” to tell Barbara and the girls that, other than the fact Kanye has a cool haircut, she doesn’t much care for the man. Alas, that’s nothing compared to President Obama, in a supposed-to-be-off-the-record conversation, calling Kanye a “jackass.” (Oops!) When the women on “The View” and the President think you’re a jerk, you’ve got problems, dude.

Hard as it may be to believe, though, lotsa other stuff happened this week. After the jump, everything you missed while you were watching Kanye West/”I’m gonna let you finish…” mash-ups: Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Girl Who Lied About Gang Rape Apparently Didn’t Want To Look Like A Slut

  • Danmell Ndonye, 18, the Hofstra student who falsely accused five guys of tying her up and gang-raping her, apparently made up the lie when confronted by her boyfriend about where she’d been. Later, Ndonye admitted the sex was consensual after police told her a cell phone video had taped the whole incident. In the vid she is allegedly seen willingly participating. Her boyfriend told the New York Post, “She probably felt like, ‘They’ll think I’m a slut.’” [NY Post]
  • Luis Zambrano, 39, who took home a drunk woman from a dance club and raped her, plead guilty to kidnapping and rape and received only three and a half years in jail. The incident is caught on video and Zambrano can be seen kissing her while she’s motionless, pulling her to her feet, ignoring her when she tries to push him away, and then picking her up and carrying her down a flight of stairs to a cab.

    Hollywood’s Best-Dressed Burglar Now Behind Bars

    Lately, there’s been a rash of Hollywood starlets’ homes getting robbed. In February, a pair of burglars broke in to Audrina Patridge‘s house, and took off with several bags full of her clothes and accessories. In May, a thief rifled through Rachel Bilson‘s closet and took clothes, shoes, handbags, and jewelry. Then, in late August, Lindsay Lohan’s home was burglarized while she was out of town. Her security cameras caught three people—a man and two women swathed in scarves—in her driveway. Paris Hilton and Hayden Panettiere, who live within a few miles of these other ladies, also had similar robberies in the past year. But the LAPD seems to have this under control. They’ve arrested a suspect who they believe committed the Audrina and Lindsay burglaries, though they’re not sure if he’s connected to the other break-ins. His name is Nicholas Prugo. He’s 18 and is currently being held on $20K bail. How long do you think it will be before he squeals on his partners in (fashion) crime? Keep reading »

    Etsy Find Of The Week: Joodito Clothing

    What joo lookin’ at, huh? Oh, my rad Joodito hoodie? Look away, my friend.

    Joodito, an Etsy seller specializing in creatively constructed clothes, describes its garments as “retro futurist,” and we couldn’t put it any better. Pieced together from raw textiles and scrap material, the dresses and tops play on vintage-y cowl neck shapes but go back to the future with asymmetrical lines and utilitarian colors. And unlike so many reconstructed and sustainable clothes out there that look like mad fashion experiments, Joodito pulls things together in an edgy-meets-elegant way.

    We’re loving on the Grandmaster Flash sleeveless hoodie with its black and navy angular patchwork, as well as the Sen Dog top, which pairs a huge space-like collar with a purple plaid bodice. [Etsy.com] Keep reading »

    Oh Noes! Prescriptives Cosmetics Going Out Of Business

    Prescriptives, the makeup company known for skin care-friendly products and custom blends, is going out of business. Apparently, the brand, a division of Estee Lauder, hasn’t been performing well, and its shutdown is part of company restructuring. Eek! What comes next? Please don’t take away our Bobbi Brown or Clinique goods (seems unlikely).

    Anyhow, it’s a shame because we’ve long been obsessed with their Magic line foundations, which have the greatest texture. Luckily, Prescriptives fans now have fair warning, as wholesale distribution will end in January, and the rest of the stock will be sold on the Prescriptives website until supplies last. Better stock up now before you have to scour eBay! [Wall Street Journal] Keep reading »
