Every TV Show Needs A Lesbian For A Few Episodes

lesbian 070709 slide1 jpg
Oh, goody. Rumer Willis (Bruce Willis and Demi Moore’s oldest kid) will join one episode of 90210 this fall as “Gia, a punky lesbian” at West Beverly High School’s Blaze News.

Hahahaha. The casting directors at 90210 think lesbians worked at the school newspaper. The lesbians were in marching band. Can’t you people get anything right? [L.A. Times]

Alas, Bruce and Demi’s eldest daughter is just the latest in a long and prestigious line of TV lesbians, who usually stick around for a few episodes and then go back where they came from.

Click through to see who gives “The L Word” and “Buffy The Vampire Slayer”—two shows with lesbian characters who weren’t just stunt casting!—a run for its money.

1969 Really Was The Summer Of Love

Happy 40th Anniversary, Woodstock! Can you believe it’s been so long since a bunch of hippies got together for some amazing music that inspired a whole counter-culture movement? Feels like we could use a little bit of that idealism, love, and enthusiasm these days—though we can probably do without all the psychedelics and armpit hair. When I think of Woodstock, one iconic image pops into my mind—the picture of that cute couple wrapped in the blanket, lovingly embracing each other amidst the crowd. The photo was on the cover of the album and the poster of “Woodstock,” the movie. Well…guess what? The couple in that photograph is still together and happily married after all these years! OMG, I think I just squealed out loud. Keep reading »

Boys Make Passes At Girls Who Wear Glasses (And Look Like This)

There are many old adages that say guys don’t like girls who wear glasses, that having four eyes is simply not attractive, and that nerds get no play. New Zealand photographer/illustrator Kelly Thompson proves everyone wrong with her mixed media exhibit “Bookworms Never Go To Bed Alone,” on display at the Gorker Gallery in Melbourne, Australia. Even if you think geeks who spend their free time at the library reading books their teachers didn’t assign them are total losers, Thompson’s artwork will send you straight to the stacks — and Cohen’s Fashion Optical.

The Guiness Book Of World Records Crowns The Strongest Vagina, Again

I’m sure your vagina is impressive, but can it lift 31 lbs? Russian mom, Tatiata Kozhevnikova, 42, was feelin’ a little loosey-goosey after giving birth. Instead of just doing kegels like the rest of us, she decided to challenge herself and become a below-the-belt strong woman.

Tatiana read up on the ancient Dao practice of using a small wooden exercise ball to flex the muscles in your hoo-ha. So, she grabbed one of her favorite knick-knacks, a Murano glass ball, off the shelf and dunked it in her hoop. Now, that’s a crafty way to get your husband to stop complaining about your costly tchotchke clutter! But unfortunately, it sorta got lost up there. “It took me ages to get it out!” Tatiana said. We hope she was exaggerating. Keep reading »

7th Grader Is Forced To Take Off A Pro-Life T-Shirt

A California 7th grader is fighting for her right to…wear a T-shirt. Anna Amador is representing her daughter in the lawsuit against McSwain Elementary School after her daughter was forced to take off her pro-life T-shirt back in April 2008. Celebrating “National Pro-Life T-shirt Day”—which I didn’t even know existed—the girl sported a graphic (pun!) tee with two pictures of a fetus followed by a square of black, along with the words, “Abortion. Growing, Growing, Gone.” Definitely a strong statement, but was it disruptive enough for the school to shirt-shame her and force a wardrobe change? Keep reading »

The Sorry State Of Reality Love Shows

You know how there’s that certain type of guy you want to dramatically douse in a glass of red wine, just to wipe the smug look off his face for a split-second? That’s how I felt last night watching Wes Hayden’s behavior on “The Bachelorette,” when he realized Jillian Harris was on to his cheating, publicity-hungry ways. As if telling the guys, “If [I'm voted off], I’m gonna go home and have lots of sex,” wasn’t gross enough, on his limo ride out of Barcelona, he bragged, “I’m the first guy on the ‘Bachelorette’ to make it to the final four…with a girlfriend.” Ding, ding, ding! Wes, you’ve just one a million dollars! Wait, no, that’s not how this show works. Hello, smart guy. Guess who watches the “The Bachelorette”? Women. And more specifically, women who’re rooting for the single person in the driver’s seat to not only find love, but have it last for more than 10 seconds. In other words, if anything, this was a pretty bad career move for an aspiring country musician. “Bachelorette” fans aren’t going to listen to this reality TV villain’s music. Just like no one’s going to buy Spencer Pratt’s rap album.

Okay, rant over. But last night’s “Bachelorette” got me thinking—are reality dating shows intrinsically broken? Keep reading »

Worst Celebrity Pick-Up Lines: Warren Beatty Wants Your Panties Down

It’s easy to imagine that Hollywood is one giant orgy, but in reality celebrities have to be careful with their sexcapades since their lives are always on blast. Even though he’s like eleventy, Warren Beatty was once quite the heartthrob and in model Léon Bing’s upcoming memoir “Swans and Pistols” she says that even though Beatty came with his girlfriend Julie Christie, he said to her, “If I wasn’t here with someone, we’d be in the upstairs bathroom right now with the door locked and your panties down.” [NYPost] Eek! Douche chills! Thankfully, the constant pap presence still doesn’t stop leading men from laying on the sleaze, so here are some of our favorite pick-up lines. Keep reading »

Fashion Industry Rallies To Make Men’s Skinny Jeans More Comfy

The war on men’s skinny jeans is, er, loosening, just not in the way you’d exactly hoped. Denim companies like Levi’s and True Religion have seen huge increases in the sale of their tight pants for guys (thanks, Pete Wentz). But in a move that seems more responsive than any we’ve seen for women, these brands are reacting to customer complaints suggesting that perhaps their styles are a wee bit too snug, and as a result are widening thigh and waistlines on the styles. If you’ve ever walked down Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (aka, Hipsterville, USA), you’d already know about the too-tight issue. Men, like women, are even having severe problems because of their jeans. Oh, the horrors after the jump and you tell us: Are you coming to terms with this oft disturbing trend? Keep reading »
