You can serve the entire country in the military, but the military won’t let you serve yourself. Did you know that our troops in Iraq aren’t allowed porn? (If only The Frisky’s cookies could talk, we’d never get drafted!) Our poor overseas personnel who are risking their lives aren’t even allowed to have dirty magazines. All they get are visits from Jessica Simpson. While the no porno rule supposedly isn’t strictly enforced for combat troops, it just got a contractor sent home. ITT small-arms repairman Brian Sayler was given a free lap dance and some DVDs while on leave visiting his hometown. A Stoughton, Massachusetts stripper named Cassidey gave him some of her films for free, which he brought back to Iraq with him. When his bunk was searched, the poor patriot was promptly fired. Isn’t this the wrong battle to be fighting? [Boston Magazine] Keep reading »

This does nothing to dispel those gay rumors, that’s all we’re gonna say. [On the set of Gossip Girl, Far Rockaway Beach, New York, 6/27/08] Keep reading »
It always annoyed me a little that on Facebook my mini-feed would say, “Catherine just updated their About Me,” but I never gave too much thought to it. Well, Facebook just announced that they’ve updated it to say either “his” or “her.” This is great for people who care about matching nouns with pronouns, but not so good for transgendered members of the Facebook community. Luckily, Facebook will allow people to manually opt out of the gender classification. “We have a lot of respect for these communities, which is why it will still be possible to remove gender entirely from your account,” said Facebook product manager Naomi Gleit. It’s nice to know they’re sensitive to this, isn’t it? [CNET] Keep reading »
Sarah Jessica Parker is thinking about going downtown. She’s had her fun as an uptown girl with Sex in the City, but now that it’s finished off, she’s looking for a new sensation. SJP is currently in talks to play an single mother in the city that lives about 50 blocks south of her old bachlorette pad in the The Ivy Chronicles. Based on Karen Quinn’s novel of the same name, it’s another guaranteed chick flick hit. But will she sign on with Warner Brothers and make the movie? [Huffington Post]

Um, wow. I am kind of speechless. The New York Daily News reports that a new modeling show has come to town, this one called Britain’s Missing Top Model. The U.K. show features models with various disabilities, like missing limbs, partial paralysis, and hearing loss. The show wants to challenge society’s traditional notions of beauty, which sounds great to me, but I also know that none of these women are going to be bigger than a size four, so that’s a standard of beauty no one is really willing to face yet either. Anyway, Marie Claire U.K. editor Marie O’Riordan serves as a judge for Missing Top Model, and says, “I do believe the program could help challenge our attitudes to disability. I want to see the winner shake up the fashion industry. These young women shouldn’t be invisible to the fashion world just because they are disabled.” Can we just ask one question? What is the deal with the title? “Missing” Model? What does that mean? [The NY Daily News] Keep reading »
The Brits might love their TV even more than we do, or maybe fewer of them have DV-R. A new poll revealed that a fifth of those surveyed regularly shun family, friends, and partners so they won’t miss their favorite TV shows. Some planned vacations around TV schedules, and 17 percent of women between 16 to 24 said they will either speed up or skip sex so they can watch TV. “Loyal fans let little stand in the way of seeing their favorite show,” said The Sun Tiscali TV director Simon Hunt. Yeah, heaven forbid life get in the way of TV. [Sify] Keep reading »
1. Janet Jackson, “If” You may be saying to yourself, “Wait, why not ‘Rhythm Nation’?” Because everyone assumes that “Rhythm Nation” is Janet’s best dance video, but it’s not. “If” is much dirtier. See for yourself.

Anne Hathaway and her boyfriend of four years, Rafaello Follieri, split last week, and now he’s stuck behind bars until he raises $21 million in bail. This sucks, but what’s even worse is that he and Anne have a dog together, a chocolate lab named Esmeralda. Maybe this is a ploy to get Rafaello and his family some sympathy, but the New York Post reported that while Anne has been traveling around the world to promote Get Smart, the dog has been staying in Rafaello’s Trump Tower penthouse, and his mom, who came to New York from Italy for cancer treatment, is taking care of Esmeralda. A friend of Rafaello’s told the paper that Anne should come get her dog: “He can’t afford a dog walker and his mom has cancer.” Anne, please let me know if you want me to dog sit until you’re back in town.
