Sex Scandal Teachers: Where Are They Now?

Just as we were hearing the post-New Year’s Eve reports that Reese Witherspoon and LeAnn Rimes were engaged, we heard about a third woman planning to tie the knot—Debra Beasley. Wait, the name doesn’t ring a bell? That’s because you know her as Debra Lafave, the Florida middle school teacher who was sentenced to three years of house arrest after it was discovered that she’d had a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old student—in her car, at her house, and at least once in a portable classroom at the school. Radar reported that Debra, now going by her maiden name, was engaged to Shawn Haverfield, a Florida bar owner. Haverfield says that isn’t actually true, but the two do appear to be living together. A source says that his family thinks “Debbie is a great girl.” [Radar, Tampa Bay Online]

This has inspired us to look up where other teachers made famous for their sex scandals are now. Keep reading »

I’m Ready For A Bald Miss USA

Miss Delaware, Kayla Martell, one of the ladies competing for the Miss America title this week, believes she has a leg up on her fellow competitors … her baldness. Suffering from a rare form of alopecia, Kayla started losing her hair in her early teens. “By the time I was 13, my hair was out completely. The thought of getting a wig never crossed my mind at all. My mother first brought up the suggestion and brought home this awful brown wig. I don’t know why, because I’m naturally blond and everyone in my family is blond. I wore it to school, but took it off in the middle of the day, put it in my backpack and never looked back,” she explained. Keep reading »

Does Rachel Zoe’s Collection Contain A Knockoff?

I was really excited for Rachel Zoe‘s first collection when the photos were featured in WWD yesterday. The collection features structured ’70s-style fashions; the garments are more tailored than loosey-goosey bohemian. Even though the $250 to $700 price range is a little beyond my means at the moment (unless Gilt Groupe plans to have a sale … hint, hint), I thought Rachel did an adequate job of bringing her signature ’70s style to the masses. But then I came across the above photo that questions the authenticity of a Rachel design on Fashionista. Did Rachel, who has made herself a brand and powerful person in the fashion industry, actually knock off another designer? Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “My Baby Daddy Is An Alcoholic. Should I MOA?”

My boyfriend (he would be a fiancé, but I turned him down) and I have been in a relationship for 2 1/2 years, and we have a 16-month-old daughter together. We’ve had problems in our relationship from almost the beginning. Every time I try to move on, he always coaxes me into staying (saying “we’re a family,” he loves me, “we’ll work on our relationship,” etc.). Most of our issues stem from his drinking. He’s English, and so he’s always spent loads of time in the pub, however, he’s being irresponsible, and only recently have I figured out he’s a functioning alcoholic. He says he’ll come home sober, but he keeps choosing not to (he can’t say no to another pint). Recently our arguments have started getting worse, and it’s getting physical. He refuses to go to couple’s counseling, and I’ve never been more alone in my life than I am in this relationship with him! I think on some level I do love him, but I feel that our daughter is more important. I don’t want her to grow up thinking that our nuclear family unit is normal. Should I MOA or try and stick it out, and focus just on my daughter and myself (only including him when he’s not drinking)? — Girlfriend of a Drunk

Sarah Palin Lashes Out At Media After Gabrielle Giffords Shooting In Tucson

Sarah Palin has lashed out at critics who say her at-times violence-tinged political rhetoric influenced Jared Lee Loughner, the man who shot 14 people this weekend in Tuscon, Arizona, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. “After the shocking tragedy, I listened puzzled, then with concern, and now with sadness, to the irresponsible statements of those attempting to apportion blame for this terrible event,” Palin said. “President Reagan said we must reject the idea that every time a law is broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions. Acts of monstrous criminality stand on their own. They begin and end with the criminals who commit them, not collectively with all the citizens of a state, not with those who listen to talk radio, not with maps of swing district used by both sides of the aisle, not with law-abiding citizens who respectfully exercise their first amendment rights at campaign rallies, and not with those who proudly voted in the last election.” Keep reading »
