Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Of all the anti-abortion legislative f***ery to happen recently, one of the saddest stories is out of Georgia. As I blogged in Today’s Lady News on Wednesday, GA State Representative Bobby Franklin has introduced a bill that would would classify abortion as “prenatal murder” in order to criminalize it, which would thus require miscarriages to be investigated by the state. They’re pre-born citizens, don’t you know? Obviously this is incredibly sensitive to grieving mothers and father who just lost a much-wanted pregnancy.
But for such a wonderful idea, it will be a difficult undertaking: what about all the potential babies — the unfertilized eggs — women lose each month with their
citizenry depletion menstruation? Who will investigate those prenatal murders? Luckily some feminist activists have a great idea on how to help. Keep reading »
I always manage to forget that each season of “American Idol” goes on for way, way longer than most any other TV show. For example, the show has been on for over a month and just this week, the judges finally narrowed down the many contestants to the Top 24 — which means the show is finally open to live viewer voting starting next week. In other words, there are many, many, many more weeks to go before a new “American Idol” is crowned, and thus, many, many more weeks of Jennifer Lopez’s tears, Steven Tyler’s random turns of phrase and pervy comments, and Randy Jackson’s ongoing uselessness. So, who are the Top 24 contestants who will keep you entertained for the next few weeks? I gotta say, this year’s crop of performers are pretty stellar. Normally I have a few favorites and hate all the rest, but this year, everyone, for the most part, is a complete, well, star. Click onward to view the Top 24 and each of their most impressive performances that got them there in the first place.
“I love porn! You know what I love about hotels? How discreet they are. They always give you that little thing at the bottom. ‘Your room will be charged the same as any other room, no titles will be used.’”
—Cameron Diaz talks to Jimmy Kimmel about the thing she loves most about traveling. Oh, and she says something or another about her new movie, “Bad Teacher,” but when you’re talking about porn, no one is listening to anything else you say. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
Beauty pageants are brutal, yo: Pageant officials have stripped Domonique Ramirez, 17, of her Miss San Antonio beauty queen title and handed off the tiara to another girl because, among other violations, Ramirez reportedly got too fat from eating tacos.
The Miss Bexar County Organization stripped Ramirez of her crown recently for contract violations like failing to show up for events, taking modeling gigs not sanctioned by the pageant, and not writing thank you notes. Oh, sweetie, your job isn’t that hard. She sued and the pageant filed a countersuit, itemizing the list of contract violations, which included her failure to maintain the same weight she was when she won the pageant. Domonique Ramirez clocks in at 5’8″ and 129 lbs, the porker! While testifying on the stand over the past week, Ramirez said she was told by pageant officials she had to lose 13 lbs. Keep reading »
Tyra Banks is always coming up with new ways to embarrass her model hopefuls on the runway. The “America’s Next Top Model” Cycle 16 premiere was no exception. For the newbies’ first runway show, they were forced to channel John Travolta in “The Boy in the Plastic Bubble” for Alexander Wang and Erin Wasson. The girls had to scurry like hamsters in their bubbles while trying to remain balanced on a 12-inch runway surrounded by a pool of water. Of course, a few of them fell and had to claw their way back to dry land. The rest of them just looked silly. So humiliating. After the jump, some more of the most ridiculous runways in “Top Model” history.
