Sneak Preview: Plenty On Gilt Fuse & Free Stuff For You!

If you’re a regular in these parts you already know that our staffers are Gilt Groupe addicts, and Gilt Fuse, its newborn sister site, is just as yummy, not to mention a wee bit easier on our wallets. The good folks over there sent us this preview of one of the goodies that’ll be on sale during the Plenty by Tracy Reese bonanza tomorrow (it starts at noon, and you beyotches best get out the way, because we are all logging in at 11:59 and counting the seconds!). They also casually mentioned that one of you fine ladies may be interested in winning all four of these gorgeous Ettika bracelets ($55-$75 each!), which you can stack on and would go smashingly with this Plenty by Tracy Reese T-back dress which will be $94 tomorrow (normally it’s $265).

We’re giving one winner all four bracelets, but you have to work if you want to win. The best commenter this weekend—from today, Thursday Aug 27 through Monday, Aug 31—will be awarded with a set. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can! Click HERE to read the official rules. Keep reading »

Chris Brown Goes Clubbing After His Sentencing

Not that he’s doing anything right, but a few hours after Chris Brown was sentenced for assaulting Rihanna, he celebrated by heading to a Los Angeles club where he jumped up on a booth and did an impromptu performance of Michael Jackson’s “Dirty Diana.” One club goer said, “He not only sang, but danced his ass off. He didn’t seem to care at all that everyone was watching him. He was in a totally good mood, just hanging out with his buddies.” [Contact Music]

Well, of course he was in a good mood—he got out of this mess with no jail time, just 1,400 hours of community service and domestic violence classes. We think it was kinda tacky to make a scene after getting off easy for committing a heinous crime, but plenty of stars have found other ways to act inappropriately after escaping the clutches of the law.

Guys Talk About Being Hit By Women

A friend of mine, Daniel, said, recently, a group of men and women in his neighborhood bar for a parade approached him “looking for some kind of fight.” A woman in the group, he said, “started some shit with me” and “at one point said, ‘What would you do if I threw this drink on you?’” Daniel said he ignored the woman’s threat and directed his attention to the men in the group; after verbal exchanges, the whole group “slinked away” out of the bar. He said the confrontation made him think about what he would have done if the woman had thrown her drink at him. He wrote to me in an email:

“But I really did consider—would I hit her? And I decided, yeah, I might have. And she would’ve deserved it. Totally unprovoked physical aggression can rightly be met in kind. I probably would’ve slapped her, or I might grabbed her by the shoulders and thrown her aside. Either way, she would’ve deserved some kind of physical reaction.”

Michael, an ex-colleague of mine, has been on the receiving end of physical violence from an ex-girlfriend.

“The only time it’s ok to get any kind of physical with a girl, in my mind is when she’s under the influence of something and hitting/kicking violently (at you or someone else),” he wrote. “Only then do I see it appropriate to physically restrain her…but this is the same rule I use for guys too, so it has little to do with the sex of the individuals involved.”

Jessica Stam Works It Out. In Stilettos.

We are forever looking for ways to make working out less painfully boring, but we must begrudgingly admit that V magazine and Jessica Stam beat us to the punch with their new workout spread. Somehow, we neglected to realize that evening gowns, stilettos, neon wrist bands and sky high ponytails were the way to jazz up our gym routines. And while one might think that leather leggings wouldn’t allow for all that much breathing, Stam looks perfectly content in the photoshoot, so we’re inclined to believe that Rachel Zoe, the shoot’s stylist, found a solution.

Svedka Vodka Wants To Make You Into A Fembot

If you are 21 or older and want to be immortalized as a creepily sexual robot sponsored by Svedka Vodka, well, your day has come! This swanky booze company has launched a site that lets users upload photos of their faces and go to town designing bodies with outfits to match. The garb is super sexy and the accessories are pretty kinky. I guess Svedka thinks most girls fantasize about becoming burlesque dancers or slutty nurses? Or slutty fairies, with horns, a yellow face and green skin? I think we’ll stick with our “Mad Men” avatars. [AreYouBotOrNot.com] Keep reading »

Iranian Prez Appoints Three Ladies To His Cabinet, But For The Right Reasons?

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has nominated three women to serve in his cabinet. This sounds amazing on the first read, but don’t get too excited—many people believe this move is totally self-serving. Ahmadinejad is likely trying to take support away from his rival, relatively liberal and pro-women candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi, who most likely actually won the contested June election that spawned many violent protests. Although the nominations may make Ahmadinejad seem more moderate and less like a holdover from the Stone Age, female activists say the appointments will hurt, not help, their cause and think that the three women Ahmadinejad picked will basically serve as his puppets.

We won’t meet Kina until tonight’s episode, but you know I’ll have the deets in tomorrow’s recap.
