Woman Commits Crime Under The Influence Of Bikini

When you imagine a crime spree, you probably think of a beefy guy in a ski mask with maybe, I don’t know, a weapon? Well, in Mississippi last week, a 24-year-old woman carjacked another woman in her driveway, allowing the woman to remove her kid from the car first. Then, she tried to rob an RV dealership. She told the dealership employees that she was packing heat and told them to cough up the cash. But the employees didn’t believe her. Why? Probably because she was wearing a bikini during this entire venture. Where are you going to hide a gun when you’re wearing four triangles of clothing? [Yahoo! News]

“G-Force” Beats “Harry Potter” At The Box Office

And so it will be written in the record books that over the last weekend in July of 2009, “G-Force” beat out “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” for the top spot in American movie box office sales. Ain’t that sad? FBI agent guinea pigs beat out the sixth installment of the most famous story of our generation. America, what is wrong with you? G-Force looked really stupid. Like really, really dumb—and you spent a whopping $32.3 million to see it in theaters? The rest of the world wasn’t nearly as silly. They kept “Potter” at number one. At least some people have their heads screwed on properly. Now I wonder, America, what happened? Was it the mid-summer blues? Was it the broken air conditioner mixed with the unbearable heat that forced you to flock to the cinema for “G-Force?” Do we all have the emotional maturity of 10-year-olds, and thus “Harry Potter” seemed too intellectual for us? What I’m trying to get at, America, is that I’m disappointed in your movie pickings. Tsk-tsk. [Variety] Keep reading »

Girls, Unlike Boys, Are Too Busy To Game

Girls have less leisure time to play digital games than boys, according to a Michigan State University study, the findings of which could shed light on the technology gender gap. The study of 276 undergraduates found that female students spent about 16 hours more per week doing homework, working, or performing other activities than male undergraduates. The findings suggest that girls play video games less because they have more obligatory tasks that take up their free time. Keep reading »

Imagining Gossip Girl: Chuck Gets Creative

Bigamist Emily Horne Gets Off With 10-Month Suspended Sentence

Emily Horne, the bigamist who was married to five men at the same time, could have faced up to seven years in jail for undermining the institution of marriage, but a judge delivered his sentence today, and Horne escaped with a 10-month suspended sentence after the court heard she was receiving treatment for a personality disorder.

Judge Mushtaq Khokhar labeled Horne a “manipulative woman,” which could be especially true now, as she has said she is considering a vow of chastity in preparation for becoming a nun. Somehow, we can’t see a woman who seems to be addicted to marriage putting an obstacle in her way of marrying husband number six. [Times Online] Keep reading »

What Would Happen If Anti-Aging Products Really Worked?

As rational, educated women, we know in our heads that when it comes to the often outlandish promises skincare companies make, applying a so-called wrinkle cure will not actually erase lines from our face. As people bombarded with airbrushed images of perfect, supernaturally youthful skin and famous idols who fight each skin fold with a double dose of Botox, it’s safe to say that we’re warily interested in aging and the lack thereof. And when it comes to beauty products in general, is it really so crazy to ask for something that does what it promises? According to a Daily Mail report, we may be getting closer to true product efficacy and real, not just promised, miracles in a jar. Keep reading »

Grey Gardens Gets New Tenants

According to WWD, there will be a new family in residence at the notorious East Hampton estate of Grey Gardens come this September. NYC interior designer Celerie Kemble and her family have just signed a five-year agreement to lease the property, and if there’s anyone would could thoughtfully perk up the historically grim estate, it’s Kemble—known for her fanciful and fresh, yet still traditional aesthetic. Not that the house needs it: The squalor and raccoon-infested property of Big and Little Edie is long gone. When the house was sold to Ben Bradlee and wife Sally Quinn in 1979, the couple began to completely renovate and re-build the property, turning it into a jewel of a place. Kemble’s children will love the wild and ever-so-slightly over the top wildflower gardens, and according to Kemble, the history of the home was also a selling (or renting) point: “I believe a house should have personality, and Grey Gardens is one of the greatest and most graceful of characters I can imagine out there.” We’re jealous.

Caridee English Is America’s Next Top Slob

If you’re an avid “ANTM” fan like me, then of course you remember the seemingly sweet and likable Cycle 7 winner, Caridee English. I was sympathetic toward her after she revealed her childhood struggle with eczema, and I totally rejoiced when she beat that annoying, know-it-all Melrose. (I can almost hear her awful voice ringing in my ears, “I was so skinny as a child that I had to learn to make my own clothes!”) That’s why I was floored when I found out that Caridee might be America’s Next Top SLOB. An anonymous New Yorker recently outed her, claiming that she sublet her apartment to English and her boyfriend via Craigslist. When she moved back in after a couple of weeks, this unsuspecting victim found her apartment looking like a cross between a sorority house and a mental institution. Now that’s a reality show I’d like to see: “Reality TV Sublets Gone Wrong.” After the jump, the disgusting details of Caridee’s alleged trail of destruction. [Gawker] Keep reading »
