Who (And What) Is A Birther?

The video of the screaming lady above is not from your local PTA meeting. Nope. It’s a video of a Delaware Town Hall meeting where a middle-aged woman couldn’t control her pride in being an American citizen or the feedback coming from her microphone. This lady has become a key figure for the “Birther” movement, a group of conspiracy theorists who believe that President Obama wasn’t born in the U.S. and is instead a Kenyan citizen who tricked us all into voting for him. Despite the fact that FactCheck.org sent staffers to examine, photograph, and inspect Obama’s birth certificate and, upon returning, posted all of their photographs and findings––which proved that the document is indeed legitimate and Obama is 100 percent American-born — the “Birthers” have not gone away. To top that off, other media sources have even tracked down the local Hawaii newspapers from 1961, which published Barack Obama’s birth announcement. Keep reading »

“The Hills” The Movie? Well, Sorta.

Lauren Conrad’s debut novel, L.A. Candy still has a cozy spot on the New York Times best-seller list. But if that isn’t sweet enough for you, it looks like the first installment of Lauren’s “fictional” story might go from printed page to silver screen. Oh, yes, LC has been quite the little writer monkey lately, editing her second novel and penning the screenplay adaptation of the first one. It’ll be movie about a girl who moves to LA, gets a reality show, and works in the entertainment industry. In other words, it’s basically a two-hour marathon of “The Hills,” only a fictionalized version of the semi-fictional show. Naturally, it will star Lauren as Jane Roberts—the lead character based on … herself. How meta. [Daily News] Keep reading »

Nerd Girl Porn: Hot Teddy Bears

teddy bears g1 jpg
On a recent episode of “Entourage,” Turtle (played by Jerry Ferrara) spent an inordinate amount of time marveling that Katherine Heigl would ever have sex with chubby Seth Rogen in “Knocked Up.” It was a joke that started off a little funny, but when it kept going and going (and going) it got mean. For starters, Turtle shouldn’t talk. He, of all people, should know just how hot a chubby teddy-bear dude can be. In fact, I have such a raging crush on Jerry Ferrara, that I’m still tuning into the HBO show, despite its flailing storyline.

In honor of Seth Rogen and Jerry Ferrara, not to mention the first episode of “More To Love” — which airs tonight on ABC and is, essentially, “The Bachelor” with a few extra pounds — I’ve put together a slideshow of dudes whose sex appeal is only amplified by the fact that they don’t waste precious sexytime hours at the stupid gym.

What Scorned Women Have Done To Get Even

“Be careful who you cheat on” isn’t a famous, old adage, but it should be, because some scorned women go freaking crazy trying to get revenge on unfaithful spouses. Just last night, a 67-year-old woman in Queens, NY, woke up at 6 a.m., boiled a pot of water, and poured it on her husband’s private parts, leaving him with second- and third-degree burns from his knees to his abdomen. Oyinda Ojofeitimi told police she had recently learned her husband of 20 years had been unfaithful. “She was hurt and angry that after all this time married, he was stepping out on her,” a police source told the New York Daily News. “She wanted to shut down that possibility forever because he had treated her with such contempt.” Ojofeitimi then regretted what she had done and called 911, but that’s not really enough, is it? She has been arrested on assault charges. This isn’t the first time (and it certainly won’t be the last) that a woman has retaliated against her cheating husband. After the jump, a hall of fame for scorned women. Keep reading »

Amber Rose Reveals Her Style Secret

Her relationship with Kanye West, her blond baldie, that colorful lipstick: We all know Amber Rose for one thing or another. But it’s safe to say that what she’ll always be remembered for are her bold fashion choices. From stunning floor-length ball gowns to leopard-print leggings and grunge boots, there isn’t a look she hasn’t tried or mastered. Wondering how she keeps her style so effortlessly chic? During an interview with Rose at the opening of the Guess Store in New York City, Amber, who was decked out in Guess (of course!), waxed poetic about her outfit and made it clear that it’s not Kanye or a stylist who makes her look so good. Instead, as she confirms, “I do it myself!” (She’s not the only one: Zoe Kravitz and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are also rumored to be a handful of celebs who manage to look chic — or silly — without the aid of an overpriced stylist.) We like that. [The Blay Report] Keep reading »

Joe Jonas And Other Celebrities Who’ve Broken Down Over Breakups

As if tweens around the planet didn’t already swoon at the mere mention of the Jonas brothers, Joe Jonas had to make their pitter-pattering hearts go into early palpitations by crying in front of an arena of fans because of his breakup with Camilla Belle. The middle Jonas brother broke into sobs last night while playing a show in Detroit and it was projected for all to see on the megatron. The commentary of “OH MY GOD he’s crying!!!” by the two Jonas fanatics in the background of the video is to die for. Whether this is a monumental embarrassment for Joe Jonas or his great scheme to win Camilla back, it’s not the first time a celeb has broken down in the public eye after a breakup. [LA Times Blog]

Here are a few more examples of celebs who couldn’t hold it together after being dumped Keep reading »

Jordan Matter’s Topless Photographs Liberate The Female Subjects

Photographer Jordan Matter’s new coffee table book, Uncovered: Women In Word and Image, was just released, and it features more than 80 New York women baring their breasts in public (legal in NYC). The project came about after “Nipplegate” — when Janet Jackson “exposed” her nipple on the Super Bowl halftime show — and, “I got to thinking about our culture of covering up.” In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Matter says, “The book became less political and much more about the empowerment that the women would feel. The photo subjects found the option of not covering up to be incredibly liberating.” Matter chose a wide variety of different women with different body types and breast sizes for the project, which makes the images especially compelling.

Is “Trash Night” The Male Version Of “Date Night”?

God, I hate the term “date night” and I was pretty sure there wasn’t a lamer phrase in a relationship until I read this article about one couple’s “trash night.” Trash night, you see is the time, twice a week (Mondays and Thursdays), when Therese Borchard has sex with her husband. It also happens to be the night the couple takes their garbage to the curb, quite literally. Therese didn’t plan it that way, but tired of her husband’s “constant begging for sex,” she asked him: “What is the minimal number of times a week that you need sex in order to be satisfied?” He told her: “Twice. Absolute minimum.” And she replied: “Fine. You get Monday and Thursday. If you don’t beg any other night.” It was only later than it occurred to her that Mondays and Thursdays happen to be trash night in their neighborhood, the evening everyone hauls their garbage to the curb before it’s collected at 5 a.m. the next morning.

Is Kate Moss The New Randy? (Or Paula?)

Remember when we told you Kate Moss was officially in cahoots with Simon Cowell and Philip Green to start a fashion and entertainment mega-company? Well, they aren’t wasting any time getting started on that whole world-domination thing. According to the UK’s The Mirror, Miss Moss and Cowell will sit on a panel of experts in the search to discover the next super-group like Coldplay or Oasis. Sort of like Diddy’s “Making The Band” crossed with “Britain’s Got Talent.” I wonder who Kate will be? Simon’s got the hard-ass personality covered. I can’t picture her playing the Randy role—she’s not big or totally lovable. We’ll find out soon enough: the show is expected to be launched in the US, and the Brits will get a spinoff following. Huh. Kate on TV? I’m not sure I can picture it, especially because not that long ago, she was caught with a mound of coke on film, not to mention the fact that we’ve heard her speak very little over the years. Kind of exciting though, no? [The Mirror] Keep reading »
