They’re ba-aaaaaa-ck! “The Real Housewives of Orange County” is returning on Sunday, March 6, and this season looks just as bleached-blonde and silicone-stuffed as the ones of yore. There are bikini modeling shoots. There’s lesbian cast member, Fernanda Rocha. Let’s meet her, after the jump! Keep reading »
I saw this Tumblr post where a girl made a list of the reasons why she thinks she’s single. While “I just haven’t met the right person,” is a great catch-all, I thought I’d try to dig a little deeper. Ya know, in the interest of self-awareness. Check out my “Why I’m Single” list after the jump. What would your list say? Keep reading »
Andreas Muller won a Mini Cooper for tattooing the word “Mini” on his peen. “Once I’m sitting in the car, it won’t matter anymore. Then the pain will be gone and it’ll be alright,” he said. What about the humiliation he will feel every time he drops his pants before a lady? No car is worth destroying your penis, Andreas. [Anorak] Keep reading »
Was Fox in cahoots with Kleenex for last night’s “American Idol” episode? Because the brand of tissue might as well have been the episode’s unofficial sponsor, considering the simultaneously heartbreaking and heartwarming story shown during the last 10 minutes. (The rest of the episode, save the weirdo who participates in Civil War reenactments with the hippie dad, was basically throw away.)
A few years ago, after dating for six years, Chris Medina proposed to his girlfriend Juliana. Two months before their wedding, Juliana was in an accident that left her with a traumatic brain injury. Their wedding was put on hold and Chris, along with Juliana’s mother, is his fiancee’s caregiver. “I was about to make vows just two months from the accident – through thick and thin, ’til death do us part, for better or worse,” he said. “What kind of guy would I be if I walked out when she needed me the most?” Chris told his story to the judges and then sang “Breakeven” by The Script, saying that making it through to Hollywood would give his fiancee something to be happy about. After hearing him sing — which he did well, thank goodness — the judges invited Juliana into the room. Steven Tyler leaned down to whisper in her ear, in a moment that seriously had me heaving with sobs, “I just heard your fiancé sing. He sings to you all the time. I could tell. That’s why he sings so good because he sings to you.” That’s love, y’all. Keep reading »
Linda Lovelace led a very strange life. In 1972, she starred in “Deep Throat,” widely considered the first porno to make it to the mainstream. (Little known fact: it apparently got a good review in The New York Times.) But years later, she said that her ex-husband, Chuck Traynor, coerced her into doing the movie—that he was abusive and had even held a gun to her head. She went on to denounce the entire porn industry. Linda’s story would totally make a fascinating movie—which I guess is why, as we told you the other day, there are currently two in the works. The first is “Inferno,” which recently replaced star Lindsay Lohan with Malin Ackerman. (The photo above is Lindsay’s promo shot for the movie, before she was ousted.) The second is as-of-now untitled, but supposedly Kate Hudson and James Franco are in talks to star in it as Linda and Chuck.
Hollywood has often mined the porn industry—particularly during the ’70s and early ’80s—for material. In honor of these two Linda Lovelace movies, let’s take a look back at some mainstream movies and TV shows about the porn industry.
