This month’s Elle Magazine has kind of a good idea. Rather than logging on to Match.com or waiting to bump into a hottie at the grocery store, start scoping men at charity fundraisers. Why? Because if they care about a cause you do, then you already have something in common and an easy way to start a conversation. And since they had to buy a reasonably expensive ticket to get in, they’re bound to be a little more together than the guy you’d meet at your local dive bar. And, hey, if there’s no one there to your liking, no biggie—enjoy yourself and know you’re supporting a good cause. While I’m not saying to go to fundraiser events as a way of boyfriend shopping, I am saying that if you get an invite to a gala or come across something you’d like to support, it may not hurt to test the waters.

Talk about a panty raid. Thomas Williams, a 25-year-old Ohio guy, was sentenced to nine years in prison today after stealing underwear from about 20 women since 2006. He got caught in April, as he trolled for new victims on Facebook, and when the police searched his house, they found more than 300 pairs of women’s underwear! In the end, he plead guilty to eleven felonies, including nine counts of burglary and misdemeanor voyeurism. He’ll be able to apply for probation after four and a half years. [AssociatedPress]
Um, don’t guys know that they can buy used panties on Craigslist? But more importantly, WTF? Why does a guy need 300 pairs of underwear for, unless he’s building a ship sail or insulating his house? Still, this crime surely isn’t worth nine years of his life. Williams is in counseling now, so do you think he got what he deserved, or do you think it’s a tad harsh for an unhinged panty-raider?

Destination weddings are all the rage in this recession, and now one lucky couple will get to live long and prosper with a “Star Trek” wedding of their dreams. The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia is holding a contest to find a couple who wants to be married or renew their vows on the bridge of the Enterprise inside a Star Trek exhibit at the Institute. The deadline to apply is June 24, so engaged Trekkies, you’d better hurry up and submit a photo and paragraph explaining why you’d want to say “I do” on the Enterprise. Sadly, we doubt Chris Pine will be able to make it to the ceremony. [Franklin Institute via Luxist] Keep reading »
Sienna Miller is not exactly the first person I would run to for relationship advice. She has dated a range of dudes, from model rocker Jamie Burke to 40-something Welsh actor Rhys Ifans, but all of her relationships have failed. Take, for example, her romance with Jude Law. The two got engaged in 2004, but then Jude had an affair with the nanny of his children. Then last summer, Sienna got together with Balthazar Getty while he was still married to Rosetta Millington, the mother of his four kids.
Strangely enough, all this love drama has not stopped Sienna from talking about relationships, dating, and even sexytime. Peep some quotes from her recent interview in Vogue and look back on some other ridic discussions. [Vogue] Keep reading »
From this pic of Pattinson on the set of his upcoming flick, “Remember Me,” Robby is a dead ringer for the deceased “Blues Brother.” He should totally star in a Belushi biopic! All we gotta do is teach Rob the lyrics to “Raw Hide.” And then crack the whip. [New York City, 6/15/09]

Why do men keep stealing our garments and accessories? The male headband is another unnecessary male fashion-y thing we hope won’t become a trend. If a guy’s hair is becoming a nuisance because it’s too long, then he should cut it or try a new hair product. I’m guessing the stylist who added the band to this man’s hair was trying to be fashion forward, but this look is a dud. Would you associate with (forget date) a guy that wears a headband?

On Friday, Ashley Tisdale (“High School Musical”) appeared on the Spanish talk show “El Hormiguero” and was gushing about Barack Obama. Next thing you know, an Obama impersonator was wheeled out for her to give a lap dance to. She doesn’t actually go anywhere near his lap, but still, it’s pretty funny. Keep reading »
A fur jacket in June? We don’t know if Michael Cera got dressed in the dark or raided an emo pimp’s closet, but we’d like to help him get out of those fugs clothes ASAP. [New York City, 6/15/09] Keep reading »
How does the op-ed community’s snarkiest scribbler pack so much fiber and fluff into her New York Times column twice a week?
She consults her “How Maureen Dowd Writes A Column” flow chart, duh. Image after the jump. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
