We love us some beh-behs as much as the next twentysomething woman with a ticktockticktock sound coming out of her ovaries. But this sounds like a bad story from The National Enquirer: a woman in Gafsa, Tunisia, is preggo with 12 babies, thanks to fertility treatments. Her identity has not been revealed yet, but she is said to be a married teacher who turned to fertility docs after several miscarriages. Thank heavens this baby bonanza is happening in Tunisia, an unlikely locale for paparazzi to schlep when they’re done camping out outside of Nadya Suleman‘s house. Seriously, wannabe parents and fertility doctors, ENOUGH with the crazy multiple pregnancies already. [Sun UK] Keep reading »
“I know, I know. It’s hard to hurt her, but I kind of feel she’s frequently hoisted on whatever she’s told to be. I still think she could have had the best relationship of her life with that roommate. That, by the way, is probably not the first time that happened to Joan. I realized that at the end of that first season. I’ve heard from many fans that they have no leanings that way but could probably not keep their hands off her.”

After a few weeks of lusting over it, I’ve finally decided to acknowledge that this Valentino bag will not be mine. Even though my computer would look so cute in there and I’m a relatively nice person. Grr. But even during my points of deepest obsession, a Valentino shopping bag never seemed like a reasonable substitute. I get the idea behind carrying designer shopping bags: looking like you can shop at stores that would really eat an entire month’s paycheck in one go. But I don’t get the allure.
The New York Times just wrote about this designer shopping bag “trend” sweeping Japan and focused mostly on the adorable aspects. Like a teenage girl who says carrying a bag from a popular designer store reminds her of the fun times she has shopping. On the other hand, could it also be the ultimate form of label whoring, more intense in its desperation level than carrying fakes? Keep reading »
Do men and women go to strip clubs for different reasons? Tanya Gold, a Guardian scribe who went to London’s Spearmint Rhino strip club and a Chippendales show, thinks so. She said the difference in the audiences was stark. At the Chippendales show, groups of women screamed delightedly at the strippers, clapping like they were at a friggin’ Jonas Brothers concert, but the mood at the Spearmint Rhino was not in the least bit joyous and, in fact, was full of sad men sitting alone.
