I knew Ed Swiderski couldn’t be trusted! This week’s Us Weekly drops a bomb — Ed allegedly had not one, but TWO girlfriends while filming “The Bachelorette,” slept with both of them during the filming process, and even expressed that Jillian Harris wasn’t his type. Ed and Jillian appeared on “Good Morning America” this morning to refute the story, but Us Weekly based their allegations on interviews with the two women, plus emails and text messages allegedly between them and Ed. Check out the “GMA” interview here and read the whole Us Weekly story. Do you think Ed is a snake or these two women are just out for publicity? Personally, I think one thing is clear — shoulda picked Reid, Jillian! Keep reading »
In our weight-and-beauty-obsessed culture, there’s something almost fetishized and taboo about an image of a skinny girl eating a big, honking burger. That’s why I’m oddly obsessed with a new site aptly titled, Skinny Girls, Big Sandwiches. It’s a blog “dedicated to skinny girls chowing down and stuffing their gullets full of sandwiches … or tacos, wraps, burritos, hoagies, subs, hamburgers, sloppy joes, paninis, tortas … or just about any combination of meat and bread products.” After the jump, some of my favorite featured photographs.

Meet YouTube star GlowPinkStah (whose real name is Gloria). The success of genuine video makeup lessons like those made by Michelle Phan has spawned a whole category of spoofs, but Gloria’s video makeup tutorials beat them all. And by “makeup tutorials” we mean she puts crazy-ass stuff all over her face, and manages to be hilarious and educational at the same time. In the video above, she guides us through the Japanese “Ganguro” look, starting with a dark foundation. “You want to make sure it gets all over your face so you don’t look stupid,” she says. Then comes huge white panda eyes and white lipstick. “I understand why they use the white … it gives you a sense of purity, like I feel like I’ve never had a penis stuck up my va-jay before.”
Where has this genius been all our lives? After the jump check out some other looks by GlowPinkStah including instructions for how to do “whore” and “emo goth” looks. Be sure to check out Gloria’s channel to get the lowdown (possibly the craziest video she has there) on the “chola” look. Seriously, don’t miss that one. [GlowPinkStah on YouTube]

There was this girl who sat behind me in third grade. She had unruly blonde hair that hung down to her shoulders, steady green eyes, and tiny teeth, and I thought she was beautiful.

Insight China magazine conducted an online survey of 3,376 Chinese peeps about who they trusted. And their findings are pretty counter-intuitive—folks said that trusted prostitutes more than both government officials and scientists. In fact, prostitutes came in third place as a group, just above farmers and religious workers. The China Daily covered the study this week, saying, “Given the constant feed of scandals involving the country’s elite, this is not bad at all. At least [the scientists and politicians] have not slid into the least credible category which consists of real estate developers, secretaries, agents, entertainers and directors.” [AFP]
I don’t even know where to start with this one. It’s not that surprising that prostitutes beat out government officials who go nuts there with the censor-happy schtick. But prostitutes also beat out students and teachers. And what’s so bad about secretaries? Who would you guys rank as the most trustworthy? Frisky bloggers? Yeah, that’s what I thought. Keep reading »
