On “The View” this week, the ladies discussed a mother who appeared on Dr. Phil, who punishes her young son for misbehaving by pouring hot sauce on his tongue and forcing him into a freezing cold shower. (The mother has since been charged with abuse.) In the clip above, it’s clear this poor kid is terrified
of his mom and the punishment he knows she’s going to inflict upon him. Look, I know timeout doesn’t always suffice, and there are plenty of people who think a swat on the butt is occasionally warranted (I am not one of them, FYI), but this just reeks of wrong
to me. The pain and discomfort it’s meant to cause is so specific
. I don’t think jail is the answer for this lady, but parenting classes sure might come in handy. Keep reading »
You can leave those extra panties at home, but don’t forget to bring small bills lest your hooker should consider you an idiot. Oh, and if you are buying “it” in the Bronx, a mandatory shot comes with most sex acts. To find out more riveting facts about the sex worker industry, like how much prostitutes charge in different boroughs and what kind of smart phones they prefer, check out Wired‘s exhaustive study of how technology and sex work mix in New York City.[Wired] Keep reading »
“I would definitely say that I’m a big fan of making things for people. I had a boyfriend who carved me a swing out of wood and hung it on a tree. That was probably the most romantic. I like a man who can build things. Whittle me something out of wood and I’m sold.

Even WIlliam Shatner couldn’t get me the slightest bit interested in watching “$#*! My Dad Says.” Everything about the sitcom looks terrible, from the title, to the based-on-a-Twitter-feed concept, to the promos which … blah. And now, the show has figured out yet another way to turn me off. Camille Grammer of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills“—aka the woman currently divorcing Kelsey Grammar—will be a guest star i=on the season finale. She will be playing a woman named Camille, a reality star going through a divorce who is in the process of house hunting, which totally sounds like a stretch. Maybe she’ll be as good in this as she was in her adult films? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
If you think those bath salts in your bathroom are just for relaxing after a long day, you are mistaken. Officials have released a warning that bath salts are the hot new drug of choice and many cities are trying to put a ban on them. The fragrant crystals can be smoked, snorted, or mainlined, and induce a comparable high to cocaine or meth. Side effects include euphoria, extreme energy, hallucinations, paranoia, psychosis, delusions, insomnia, suicidal thoughts, chest pains, heart attacks, strokes, and smelling good. Other signs that a loved one may be using; they spend an awful of time taking baths and never seem all that clean, but emerge from the bathroom looking insane. Packets of bath salts go for $25 – $40 on the black market, I mean any drug store. But what about those of us who just want to take a bath? [KTLA] Keep reading »
Valentine’s Day is a minefield. Whether you’re single or hooked-up the potential for misery is high because, much like New Year’s Eve, it rarely lives up to its reputation.
