Sarah Palin has some crafty supporters. Now that she’s out of the governor’s mansion, Palin is required to disclose a list of any gifts she received since December 1, 2008, worth more than $250. Some of the highlights:
- A gun case with her name embroidered on it from a woman in Tennessee.
- A painted plate of Sarah’s noggin from a stoneware studio in Kansas.
- Two handmade army flags from a woman in New Jersey.
- A glass elephant pendant from a woman in California.
- A blanket with the words “The Special Child” cross-stitched into it from a woman in Texas.
- A handmade Bible with a goatskin case.
Uh, is it just me, or does none of this stuff sound like it could possibly be valued at more than $20? [CNN Political Ticker] Keep reading »
By now you’ve seen eight episodes of the web comedy series “MERRIme.com,” — winner for Best Comedy at the ITVFest — and we hope you’re loving it as much as we are. “MERRIme.com”‘s protagonist is Merri Weisman, a twentysomething trust-fund baby who’s just been dumped by her fiancé. When her father orders her to find a job, pronto, Merri realizes that the key to her survival is not a career, but a man — via the crazy world of online dating. “MERRIme.com” was written by Kaily Smith (along with David Weidoff), a 26-year-old actress originally from Denver, Colorado. We chatted with Kaily about how she was able to put together an entire web series with a lot of hard work and a little help from her friends.

New statistics from the National Center for Health Statistics show that life expectancy in the U.S. is at an all-time high of 77.9 years.

Say it ain’t so, but a major UK consumer organization claims that spending money on fancy eye creams is like investing in horses and buggies, or erm, something like that. The group Which? tested 12 anti-wrinkle products on volunteers between 35 and 65 years old, and “found none of them came close to eliminating or reducing the appearance of lines.” Not. Even. One. As a result, they concluded that a $5 eye cream is not too different from a $50-plus one. [Belfast Telegraph]

Ooh, ooh (said like Horshack in “Welcome Back, Kotter”). I now have a really good reason why you need to watch the Miss Universe Pageant this Sunday night. Heidi Montag will be giving her first-ever live musical performance, debuting her single “Body Language” which leaked online a while back. “I am so excited to perform,” says Heidi. “This is such a miracle in life and I give thanks to God everyday for this once in a lifetime opportunity.” [People]
Here’s hoping this will be a disaster on par with Britney‘s “Gimme More” performance. The New York Post claims that asking Heidi to perform has turned into a fiasco for the show’s producers. Find out all about it, after the jump… Keep reading »
