Today In Terribleness: Rape, Murder, And Death.

  • A nine-year old girl from Congo detailed being gang raped by Congolese soldiers on her way home from school during an interview with photographer and freelance journalist Sherrlyn Borkgren. She explained that “two soldiers nabbed her, put a bag over her head and pulled her into the bushes.” The young girl is just one of 200,000 girls who are estimated to have been raped in Congo over the last 12 years.

  • A mother, Alicia Sanchez, watched as her 11-year-old son died in Death Valley, five days after she and him became stranded in the desert. Sanchez works as a travel nurse, but she could do nothing about the dehydration she and her son suffered. A day later, Sanchez was rescued by a park ranger. [ target="new">KTNV]
  • A woman described as a “sex–obsessed slob” did nothing to stop her son from being tortured and murdered right in front of her. The mother, Tracy Connelly, her “sadistic neo-Nazi” lover, and his cocaine addict and convicted arsonist brother had abused her toddler, Peter, for months leading up to his murder. The boy was taught to give the Nazi salute every time Connelly’s lover walked into the room, and to refer to him as Hitler. After his death, Peter was discovered with a snapped spine and eight broken ribs. [ target="new">Daily Mail]

    Should Beth Ditto Be Considered A Fashion Icon?

    In many ways, the Gossip lead singer Beth Ditto is simply the s**t. She’s a big, bad ass lesbian who’s got to be more comfortable with her body than pretty much anyone I know. That said, I’ve got to agree with British GQ features editor, Alex Blimes, in his incredulity at Ditto’s fashion “icon” status. Blimes was a complete ass about it, calling my favorite plus-sized and proud singer a “porker,” but I’m with him on the main point: Ditto’s style is none-too-special. Keep reading »

    Quote Of The Day: Tyrese Thinks Women Are Cattle

    “I love seeing my name on a woman’s butt. Ladies, if you want to impress me when you meet me, I need to see my name on your right cheek. Girls have had tattoos of my face. One girl went and got her ass tattooed on her right arm…It’s important to keep things tasteful.”

    Rethink: The Bean Bag Chair (No, Really!)

    The last time I plopped myself down on a bean bag chair it was freshman year of college—and to give you an idea of my and my roommates decor scheme then, our other furniture consisted of a “coffee table” made from salvaged plywood and cement blocks and sorta-stained slipper chairs that a roommate talked the campus health center into giving us rather than throwing out. It wasn’t exactly the stuff of Elle Decor photo spreads. I’m thinking a lot of us don’t really think of bean bag chairs in the fondest light. Well, get ready to reconsider your decor stigma, because the 2009 version of the bean bag will shock you—Pottery Barn Kids has a go-with-everything, wide-striped bag, it’s actually an in- and outdoor chair so you can throw ‘em out in the backyard for instant seating. West Elm has it’s own very modern-looking version. And my favorite is from Serena & Lily—it’s a bit more structured, will cost you 45 bucks and could even double as an ottoman or low side table.

    Fashion Slideshow: Steal Rihanna’s Sweater-As-Dress Look

    rihanna 061209 g4 jpg
    We were really smitten with Rihanna’s sweater-as-dress look the other day. While we realize that you have to be super confident to pull this off, and it doesn’t hurt to be a short, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to create our own looks. It is summer, but these outfits would be great for that random cool summer day or on a chilly night.

    Quick Vid: “Golden Girl” Betty White Plays Beer Pong

    Former “Golden Girl” Betty White and Jimmy Fallon played an epic game of beer pong on “Late Night” yesterday. Jimmy Fallon has already lost to Anna Kournikova, Serena Williams and Ivanka Trump but he finally managed to break his losing streak. We were rooting for Betty and give her props for sinking the first shot. Too bad the two didn’t play a whole game. If they had, Betty would have cleaned house. Keep reading »

    New Breastlight Device Detects Lumps At Home

    Confession: each time I go to the gyno and she shows me how to do a breast self-exam, I stupidly smile and nod my head and she talks and prods my boob, knowing I have no clue what she’s really feeling. I then go home, fondle my own breasts and end up in frustration because (surprise!) they’re lumpy all over! It makes me feel like a bad woman who is not “in touch with her body” to admit that I don’t know what to think of those “normal” lumps. My doctor even once discovered what turned out to be a benign lump, and even then it didn’t feel distinctive. To help solve these problem, there’s now Breastlight, a wand that essentially lets you see what’s going on inside your chest. Take the device into a dark room, apply the lubricant to your breast, and hold Breastlight under your boob to light it up in red hue, highlighting veins and any other abnormalities. It’s not meant to replace mammograms, but at least it will help morons like myself know when something isn’t right. [Uk.breastlight.com] Keep reading »
