“I cannot believe that a Frenchman visiting Kiev went back home and told his colleagues he discovered something and didn’t say he discovered the most beautiful women in the world. That’s my observation.” – Vice President Joe Biden
Now, our Vice President is known for having foot-in-mouth disorder, but this little quote in particular icks me out. For starters, it’s kind of un-patriotic. I don’t think that American women are the most beautiful in the world, but it’s not my job to think or say so. But as VP, if Joe Biden feels the need to talk about the “most beautiful” anything, he should really stick to the good ol’ U.S. of A. Really, I don’t want my VP ogling the ladies when he goes abroad and if he’s going to, he should do so subtly and keep his observations to himself. The fashion industry, which employs a bevy of Ukrainian models, already does more than enough to make the Average Jane feel inferior next to ladies like Dasha Astafieva.

Tabloids are kind of like elaborate ventures into fan-fiction. Basically, they watch celebrities and then pick and choose where the stories would go if they had their way. Hey, wouldn’t it be cool if these characters fell in love and had to fight for each other? Oh, this celeb is sick—let’s make it heroin! This week, Mischa Barton‘s on drugs, Kate Gosselin and Jon’s new chickadee are clawing each other’s eyes out, Patrick Swayze had a heart attack (that one might be true), and Kristen Stewart is gonna sex it up to win back Robert Pattinson.

A few weeks ago, the name “Erin Andrews” meant nothing to those of us who couldn’t care less about ESPN. But after a nude video of the pretty, blonde sports reporter surfaced last week, Andrews is everywhere. Some creep recorded the video without her consent from a hotel room peephole and passed it around on the Internet.
Today, Radaronline.com is reporting a source told them another ESPN employee likely filmed the pervy vid. Radaronline.com also alleges that there are also seven videos of Andrews, all posted on a French website called Dailymotion.com. The user allegedly uploading the video calls himself or herself “Goblazers1″ and identifies himself as a 49-year-old American.
Depressing. We did some digging to find out all this deets on the pervy privacy violation of this ESPN star, who—sucks to be her—will never be known for just sports reporting again. Keep reading »
Tear. Gidget the Chihuahua, famous for her manly utterance, “Yo quiero, Taco Bell,” in the chain’s commercials (watch one after the jump), has died at the age of 15. “She made so many people happy,” Gidget’s trainer, Sue Chipperton, told People. “[She] always knew where the camera was.” On the one hand, this is sad, because it is ALWAYS SAD when dogs die. But on the other hand, 15 is a good ol’ age for a dog and Chihuahuas are known for living longer than certain other breeds. Gidget certainly had an exciting life. Also, I’m pretty sure my dog Lucca is part Chihuahua, so that hopefully means I have plenty of time to clone her. [People] Keep reading »
We don’t care how much money you have — or don’t have — there’s nothing like free stuff. One of the best deals we’ve heard of in ages is getting ready to assault your senses, or more to the point, your skin, in mere hours. Estee Lauder is giving away a quarter million bottles of their new night cream this Thursday (that’s tomorrow!). The cream, called Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex (say that three times fast), will be handed out across the country from 5 to 9 pm at Estee Lauder department and specialty store counters. These ain’t no skimpy samples by the way. They’re giving you enough to last 10 days. Just enough time to get hooked… Go here for more deets! Keep reading »
In this Italian ad for a female enhancement cream (“O Gel”) made by Durex, a woman is having such an intense orgasm that she’s somehow managed to rake trails into her nightstand with her nails (girl clearly has acrylics).
Lord knows the Italians find entertainment in characterizing women as devilish evil-doers, a prime example being the “Foxy Knoxy” case that gave Italy’s tabloids a field day.
Here again we see a woman who has been cast as a vixen with a violent edge. What do you think? Does this Durex ad lend an animalistic/too violent quality to the image of women? Or does something about it ring true for the crowd who likes rough sex? Leave your response in the comments below!
As a side note, the blog Copyranter suggests that the ad would have been more effective and interesting without the woman’s arm, and just the scratched table. [Copyranter.blogspot.com] Keep reading »
I heart words and communication. This includes emails, text messages, Gchat, Blackberry Messenger, iChat — the works. I am a sucker for a well-crafted email or a witty text message. My motto: The way to my heart is through my brain. That’s why I thought Joe could be Mr. Perfect for me. Joe and I met one night at a work gala. I had already put away an entire bottle of wine when I almost knocked him over on the dance floor.
“Do you like to dance, beautiful girl who almost stepped on my foot?” he asked.
“Only when I’m drunk. When I’m sober, I dance like Elaine from ‘Seinfeld.’” I replied.
It was a rainy October night and Joe offered to escort me to the subway when the event ended, impressed that I could: a.) still walk and b.) do it in 3-inch heels. “Email me,” I slurred, handing him my business card, “I loooove emails.”

Sometimes inspiration comes when you’re not looking for it. In some of our random fashion browsing on the Internet, when we were looking for clothing-related posts, we found ourselves completely ignoring the goods on the page and were instead entranced by these models’ hairstyles. The styling on each is perhaps perfect—braids complimented by Grecian and knotted accessories. Here’s how to get these two innovative ‘dos… Keep reading »
