16 Politicians Sans Clothes

congressman schock jpg
Freshman congressman Aaron Schock, a Republican from Illinois, has done something pretty, heh, shocking. He’s posed for the June cover of Men’s Health magazine—loosening his tie, unbuttoning his shirt, and showing off a fierce six pack that we hope he didn’t eat sweet potatoes for days to achieve. He did this to promote the Fit For Life Summer Challenge. “If you want to start talking about healthy lifestyles and staying in shape, then you yourself should do your best to try to be a role model, an example to people you’re trying to convince to do the same,” he explains. “I think Michelle Obama is on the right track with her ‘Let’s Move’ campaign to bring down childhood obesity. She and I come from the same state, Illinois, which is number four in the nation for obese children. One out of five Illinois children are considered obese.” Wait, we’re still too focused on his abs to talk about do-gooding. Did we mention he revealed in the article that he’s single? [People]

After the jump, more politicians who’ve been photographed shirtless or in the nude.

Today’s Lady News: Orthodox Jewish Newspaper Explains Airbrushing Women From Situation Room Pic

  • The conservative Hasidic Jewish newspaper in Brooklyn that removed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and counterterrorism analyst Audrey Tomason — the only two women in the iconic Situation Room photo of the President watching the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound — has released a statement. Der Zeitung writes:

    “Our editorial policies are guided by a Rabbinical Board and because of laws of modesty, does not allow for the publishing of photos of women. The readership of the Tzeitung believe that women should be appreciated for who they are and what they do, not for what they look like, and the Jewish laws of modesty are an expression of respect for women, not the opposite.”

    You can read the rest of the statement — which apologizes more for altering the White House’s official photograph, which is against policy, than it does for Photoshopping all the women out of the photograph — on the newspaper’s web site. [Der Zeitung]

  • Before he was prince of our hearts (aww), Prince Harry was just a little boy digging for gold and then eating it. Also, get your princes straight, BuzzFeed! That’s Harry, not William. [BuzzFeed]
  • Paul McCartney and fiancée Nancy Shevell won’t do a a prenup. Prenups = so “out” right now. [PopEater]
  • Chaz Bono said he’d be willing to talk to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie about their daughter Shiloh, who is infamous for her quote-on-quote “boyish” clothing. “I would love to talk to them at some point to at least let them know we have this resource for them if they ever need it,” said Cher’s son, who had gender reassignment surgery to transition from Chastity to Chaz. “People get too freaked out about kids and what to do with kids. If you just let kids do what they need to do they usually have the right idea.” Could we stop diagnosing this Shiloh with gender dysmorphia already? She’s in preschool. [E! Online]

Check Out Exclusive Footage From The “Bridesmaids” Premiere!


Last week, Jessica and I were lucky enough to attend a screening of the movie “Bridesmaids,” which hits theaters this Friday. You can check out Jessica’s review of the film here, but allow me to add my own two cents and that is that, holy crap, was it hilarious. I’m already laying the groundwork for ducking out of the plans I made Friday night — cough, cough — so that I can go see “Bridesmaids” again. The movie made me feel really glad that I don’t have any friends (who aren’t already married) that would want me to be a bridesmaid in their wedding. Being not-too-good-a-friend to everyone has never been so awesome. I kid. Sort of. Anyway, here’s some exclusive footage from the “Bridesmaids” premiere. Woot woot! Keep reading »

Are NeNe Leakes And Star Jones Fighting Over Al Reynolds?

Last week, we showed you the long-awaited catfight between “Real Houswives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes and former “View” co-host Star Jones on “Celebrity Apprentice.” Things got nasty as the two ladies went after each other in the boardroom. “I will take you down,” NeNe said. “You pressed the last button in me Ms. Star Jones.” The two said their beef was over “Apprentice” politics. But there might be more to it than that. Rumor has it that NeNe is dating Al Reynolds. Yes, as in Star’s ex husband, to whom she was married for four years. Keep reading »

Chelsea Handler Taking A Trip To The “Mall”

Chelsea Handler can sure write a funny story and deliver a punchline like no other. But can homegirl act? We will get to see very soon. Chelsea has been cast in the movie “Mall,” which sounds like a dark comedy version of “Crash.” It follows five “disaffected suburbanites”—a stoner, a desperate housewife, a businessman, a security guard, and a meth addict with a gun—who cross paths at (you guessed it) a mall. Chelsea will, of course, be playing the housewife. And I cannot wait. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
