Anti-abortion group The American Life League has released a new video in support of Congress defunding Planned Parenthood and it wants you to think that a doctor scraping an eight-week-old bunch of cells from a uterus is just like slaughtering a cute animal in a blender. Yep, a person dressed in hospital scrubs places a bunny in a blender, the screen goes black, the blender whirs, and the camera pans to a several-months-old Caucasian baby. Nuanced! My first thought was something that my Token Pro-Life Catholic Friend said to me about how he is against abortion because it’s “an act of violence.” Huh? I don’t see women’s health supporters using imagery so cruel. [YouTube via Feministing] Keep reading »
I see Lady Gaga‘s nude, high-waisted, thong underpants! It’s nice to see that Gaga has a few essential basics in her closet, even if they’re just in her panty drawer. Check out more photos here! [Paris, 3/2/11] Keep reading »
Kimora Lee Simmons is one busy lady. She has three kids—including a one-year-old—and a new husband, actor Djimon Hounsou. She’s broken from Baby Phat and now is launching her own fashion empire—including two labels (KLS and Kouture by Kimora), a perfume, and a skincare line. Not to mention that the fourth season of her show “Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane” is currently airing Sunday nights on The Style Network.
After the jump, Kimora talks to The Frisky about what beauty products she’d need on a stranded island and what it was like finding love again after getting divorced. Keep reading »
“I’ve always felt that a man should be able to be with as many women as he likes. I’ve never had the opportunity to share that with any man before because, honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever been with a man who was even deserving of that. Charlie is a great man and he can provide the lifestyle to accommodate a relationship such as what the three of us have. He has totally taken me aback by what a wonderful person he is, how open and honest he is.”
— Rachel Oberlin/the porn star “Bree Olsen,” 24, one of Charlie Sheen‘s “goddesses,” i.e. live-in girlfriends, defends their polyamorous lifestyle. His other girlfriend is Natalie Kenly, 24, also called “Natty.” Frankly, I don’t see why everyone is making such a big to-do about Charlie shacking up with two babes. Hasn’t Hugh Hefner being doing that for … decades? (Someone get this man a bathrobe!) I wonder how Rachel thinks a man who’s been arrested for domestic violence as recently as last year is “deserving” of this accommodation, though. [Oh No They Didn't!] Keep reading »
Looks like Jessica Simpson and Christina Aguilera both have new jobs. On the heels of her arrest for public intoxication, while her new BF Matthew Rutler was charged with a DUI, NBC announced that Xtina will be a musician coach on their “American Idol” knockoff, “The Voice,” a series that will debut on April 26. “To be given the opportunity to help shape new artists’ careers and mentor them to see their dreams come to fruition is a task I welcome with open arms,” Christina said.

This is not a story of how abortion is right or wrong. Nor is it about what other people are doing with their bodies, or what I think about that (as though it’s any of my business). No: this is just my story of how Planned Parenthood made some hard times a little easier for me, and how “real” healthcare (i.e., via insurance plans) can make things difficult. Keep reading »
