Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Last night’s series finale of “Big Love” ended with a shocker. No, the sister wives didn’t opt for an arm-wrestling match to see who would win Bill Henrickson once and for all. (If you haven’t watched yet, you should STOP READING NOW.) Bill finally resods neighbor Carl’s lawn, and Carl confronts him in the driveway about it, taking it as an insult. Cut to the wives, inside cooking Easter dinner, as they hear gunshots. They run outside and find Bill on the ground. As he dies, Bill asks for a blessing from Barb, passing the torch as spiritual head of the household to her. From there, we get a flash forward 11 months and discover that not only have the wives stayed together, but in many ways Bill’s death has given them the life they wanted.
Amelia and I have discussed the episode ad nauseum, and think it was right to have Bill die in the end—after all, the guy is totally boring, not to mention doesn’t at all deserve to get booty from three women whenever he pleases. But honestly, we wish he’d been shot in the beginning of the season, so we could see how the three women function without him. In many ways, it’s their story that made the show. Also, why have Bill shot by his neighbor rather than, say, some political activist who objected to him trying to legalize polygamy? The whole thing felt very “American Beauty.”
But still, we always applaud a shocker finale. Here, our 10 favorite finale twists of all time.

Sapolnick, adopted their “son,” Digby, some 20 years ago in Paris. Yes, Digby is technically a “doll” but they don’t care to refer to him that way. To them, he is their child. Keep reading »
Ah, the GLAAD Media Awards — where the men look like women and the women look like drag queens. After the jump, we give you the best girls, boys, and boys who look like girls, plus all the fashion you can handle.
Take a good look at those two faces above. That beautiful model is rocking Smashbox’s “Glambox,” a full collection of makeup that’s supposed to allow you to complete both a “sultry” and a “sweet” look, as pictured above. I am always a little wary of do-it-yourself kits that claim you can look just like a model. After all, we’re all very aware of how much Photoshopping goes into selling us every product under the sun. So we put the collection to the test. Using the handy guide provided in the kit, my friends Abby and Heidi graciously agreed to see if the Glambox really delivers. After the jump, check out their versions of “sultry” and “sweet” and get the lowdown on how their step-by-step process really went. Keep reading »
