Lawsuit Mom Says Bullying Led To Girl’s Eating Disorder

A Pennsylvania mother is suing her daughter’s school system because she said classroom bullying caused her daughter to develop anorexia.

The lawsuit alleged that in 6th grade, three boys called the girl “fat” and two more boys joined the taunting during her 7th grade school year. One year later, the girl checked into an in-patient program for an eating disorder. The family is suing Pittsburgh Public Schools because she said the school’s guidance counselor failed to deal with the alleged bullying, which would likely make it the first lawsuit of its kind.

What Do You Think Of Gwyneth Paltrow’s New Clothing Line?

Gwyneth Paltrow worshipers rejoice! (Are you out there? Hello? Bueller? Bueller?) The first pics of the multi-tasking celebrity’s new clothing line — a collaboration with brand Zoe Tees for British boutique Matches — have finally surfaced. (The wares are available in London, and supposedly online; however, the Matches website is down, probably because of today’s traffic surge.) The resulting pieces seem typically Gwyneth, with muted colors and that sort of non-aesthetic that beautiful, thin people can pull off—you know, girls who look gorgeous in burlap bags. Overall, the collection channels chic comfort, perfect for days spent cleansing away your toxins. For your dinner parties with “William Joel,” add some pizazz with a studded racer-back top.

What do you think? Refined basics? Or over-hyped and GOOP-y? [Grazia]

Megan Wants … Her Show To Stay On The Air

Ryan Alexander Jenkins, the “Megan Wants A Millionaire” contestant wanted for questioning after his wife, Jasmine Fiore, turned up dead and stuffed in a suitcase in a dumpster, still hasn’t been found. The police have been searching for him since Saturday. The real estate mogul is worth $2 million, and the sheriff’s department is saying that it’s very possible he used said millions to make a run for the Canadian border. They found one of Ryan’s two cars abandoned at a marina near the state line, and have a report of a man who matches his description getting off a boat in Canuckland. [E! Online]

With all this horrifying news, VH1 has decided to cancel “Megan Wants A Millionaire.” Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Sienna Miller And Anna Wintour Let Bygones Be Bygones

Despite the fact that there are entire scenes in “The September Issue” which involve Anna and her cronies criticizing Sienna for being “toothy” (among other flaws) and plotting ways to Photoshop her image for the cover, last night at the premiere they buddied up for a pap shot on the red carpet. Note: Sienna is not flashing her famous grin. [8/19/09, NYC] Keep reading »

What Is A Junk Monster?

No, that’s not the slang term for a hoarder, although it would totally fit. Junk monsters are the strange suits London-based photographer Danny Treacy crafts from items he finds in “lonely places,” like the woods, parking lots, and landfills. Once the junk monster suit is completed to Treacy’s satisfaction, he wears it in his life-size self-portraits for his ongoing series Them. The suits and series are described on his website as “nightmares of the catwalk, prowling around the outskirts of style’s dumb extravagance.” Although these found items morph into one collective piece, each garment has a story to tell on its own — “It seems that something that happened to its former owner emanates from each piece of fabric,” wrote photography blogger Isabelle on Cyana Trend Land.

Some, including myself until I took a second look, may argue that this isn’t art. But I’d advise them to look a little closer. Don’t you want to know the stories behind each piece of fabric? It’s a good thing Treacy doesn’t tell us what he knows because then our imaginations would be stunted. Plus, we can also try to figure out what his message is. I think the above junk monster is trying to warn us against the dangers of global warming. It’s saying no amount of protective clothing will ward off the inevitable body bag.

After the jump, two other junk monster photos. Keep reading »

Company Markets Wine For The Gays

Well, this is novel. A fine wine purveyor is targeting gay men with a line of special wines. Spanish UO! Wines has three vino options: Antinoo, Oscura Lágrima, and Ánima Blanca. Antinoo is a red: “young and mature, fruity, elegant, smooth…Mediterranean.” Oscura Lágrima, another red, is described thusly: “They say that the best sex is tumultuous like a storm cloud, and we’re inclined to agree.” Ánima Blanca is a white: “It’s fresh on the palate, potent…like a low whisper floating at you from behind your neck at just the right time.” Steamy! Nothing sells wine like sex, one imagines. Every bottle label features a hot, ripped dude in various stages of bondage/undress. Kinky! But where’s the line of wines for the lesbian ladies, UO!?

Dating Don’ts: How To Say No!

Last weekend at a party, I noticed a toad-like man attaching himself to a beautiful, talented friend of mine. Not only was she way out of his league, looks-wise, but as I eavesdropped I discovered he was one of those dudes who delivers endless monologues instead of engaging in actual conversations.

Ladies, I think we’ve all been stuck with that guy. This time it was my friend’s turn. Keep reading »

What Did Kim Zolciak Do To Her Face?

Kim Zolciak from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” stopped by “The Today Show” this morning to talk shop with Ann Curry. Among some choice comments about her show, Kim revealed she’s really “not into all the drama” and that she’s “definitely embarrassed … at times” (like, when she hears herself singing, maybe?). She also says that the way she and her cast mates behave on the show is setting a “poor example.” That’s all fine and whatever, but, you guys, what is going on with Kim’s face? Did she have her lips done? Her eyes? An entire face-lift? I can’t quite put my finger on it, but girl’s looking even stranger than usual. Check out the clip above. Keep reading »
