Pet custody battles are becoming more and more common. When married pet owners divorce, the animal they shared often finds itself at the center of their split. Monthly support payments, visitation rights, restraining orders, custody battles, and legal fees: Sounds like the usual bitter divorce battle, right? Not so fast. This time Kramer v. Kramer also stars Missy the Chihuahua, Sable the Keeshond, and Barney, a golden retriever-Lab mix. Welcome to the brave new world of animal custody law. Keep reading »
“I realized very early that there are two types of men in this world: Those who are comfortable sitting in a large group of men watching porn and those who are uncomfortable sitting in a large group of men watching porn. I am definitely in the latter category.”
“It would have to be funny. I’m a very serious actor when it comes to nudity. I’m like Meryl Streep.”

Germany’s Sarah Gronert is a professional tennis player who competes on the same level as the Williams sisters and Maria Sharipova. The thing is, Gronert was born with both male and female sex organs (i.e. she’s a hermaphrodite), though she had surgery a few years ago to remove the male genitalia. Her story ignited controversy in her own country and within the professional tennis world, but she was able to plead her case with the WTA (the group that oversees the sport) so that she could continue to play among her female peers. But her critics believe that the fact that she was born both as a man and a woman gives her an unfair advantage competing against women. “There is no girl who can hit serves like that, not even Venus Williams,” said Schlomo Tzoref, who coaches rival player. “When I heard her story, I was in shock. I don’t know if it’s fair that she can compete or not. She does have an advantage, but if this is what the WTA have decided, they probably know best.” Apparently, Gronert is so good, she’s expected to be crack the Top 50 players in the world this year.

So, you’re sweating a dude like he’s a spin class. Girl, you know you got it baaaaaaaad! It’s exciting to crush on a dude, but it’s also potentially ego crushing and stupid.

Did I call it or what? Just as she’s done before, Jessica Simpson followed up the unflattering “fat” photos from a few weeks earlier of her in high-waisted mom jeans and an unfortunate leopard print belt with sudden “skinny” photos of her in a push-up bustier and skimpy Daisy Dukes, showing a pair of well-toned legs. Performing at the March 8 Florida Strawberry Festival performance, Simpson appeared to have dropped ten pounds in a matter of weeks, securing her spot, once again, on several tabloids, including In Touch.
A spokesperson from the Strawberry Festival said they didn’t provide any of the photos that have appeared in the tabloids, leaving everyone to wonder, “Gee, where or where could the pictures have come from?” She said “credentialed photographers had to sign waivers that they wouldn’t sell their photos to the tabloids,” and speculated that audience members with telescopic lenses on their camera must have taken the shots. Oh, of course! But what an inconvenience for the incredible shrinking woman to have to appear on magazine covers again. If her music and acting career is any indication, she’s clearly not comfortable with that kind of attention. [via MSNBC] Keep reading »
Paul Rudd and Jason Segal’s “I Love You, Man” opens on today, and Forbes says this breed of male comic duos are “more enlightened” and “less homophobic” than predecessors like Laurel and Hardy. Why do people pretend men weren’t friends before the “bromance” phenomenon? You think Jesus didn’t love his disciples? Those men were crazy emo. And “The Odd Couple”? Totes loved each other. Here’s who we’d shun, shag and marry… Keep reading »
Leanne Eisen is a Toronto-based artist who creates dollhouse scenes that depict the human condition. One of her most intriguing photo-based series is “Play,” for which Eisen built miniature replicas of brothel interiors. While most dollhouses contain scenes of perfect domesticity, Eisen’s rooms allow viewers a downsized peek inside the mostly hidden world of prostitution. I asked the artist about her mini-sex work project; her response is after the jump. Keep reading »
