Heidi Klum was immortalized as part of Barbie’s Blonde Ambition Collection, but the doll just looks like a regular Barbie doll to me. Now I wonder why Mattel even bothered with this collection. [7/8/09] Keep reading »
Wedding planning ’tis always a bit of a hassle. Despite hours upon hours of meticulous planning something is bound to go wrong. Grandma gets drunk, the ring boy swallows the wedding band, the maid of honor locks herself in the bathroom crying about how she looks like a fat cow and won’t come out. There are so many tiny details which will inevitably get screwed up, but the hair and makeup is usually a pretty straightforward process. Not so for bride Shivani on her wedding day. It was almost lights, camera, action time when Shivani and her sister skedaddled over to the Cleopatra Day Spa Beauty and Slimming beauty parlor for their pre-arranged 3:30 appointment. That’s when disaster struck.

British scientists have found a way to create fully mature, functioning sperm in a lab. Researcher on the project, Professor Karim Nayernia explained, “The work is a way of investigating why some people are infertile and the reasons behind it.” And the pay off is that women or couples who’ve had fertility issues not only have more hope now, a single lady can get pregnant without the aid of a real-live-man. Some scientists are skeptical over Nayernia’s project though. Prof Azim Surani, from Cambridge University, described the lab samples as “a long way from being authentic sperm cells.” Still, kind of amazing, right? [Metro.co.uk] Keep reading »
The next time one of my friends complains about how huge her thighs are, I’m pulling up a picture of Mandy Sellars. This poor 34-year-old woman was born with a growth abnormality that causes her legs to be GINORMOUS. She weighs 280 lbs—and 200 of it is from her legs! Since the day of her birth, when she was rushed away from her parents to be observed by doctors, Sellars has always been a bit different. So different that in her 34 years on Earth, no doctor has been able to officially diagnose Sellars’ disorder. While the best guess by most doctors is that she suffers from “Proteus Syndrome,” the same disease the Elephant Man had, until recently it never affected the way she lived. Keep reading »
Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson stepped onto a very soggy red carpet last night for the world premiere of “Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince” in London. Even completely soaked and standing under umbrellas, the cast still looked magically delicious—except Helena Bonham Carter who wore an unsurprisingly witchy ensemble. But the torrential downpour was not the only hurdle to clear for the premiere. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
Okay, so names have always been a touchy subject in our society. Do you call someone Black or African-American? He-she or Transgender? Disabled or Physically Challenged? But when did midget become a disputed term? Apparently after an episode of “Celebrity Apprentice” aired. In it, contestants came up with a soap called, “Jesse James and the Midgets.” It sounded funny, but vertically-deficient folks were not laughing. Instead, they started calling the Federal Communications Commission, or FCC, in droves to have the word banned from television. So far the FCC has yet to issue a statement of action. [In the meantime, FYI: It's Little People. -- Editor] Should the FCC comply? Did you even know the M-word was considered offensive?  Keep reading »
Whenever we’re searching for new celebrity pictures on paparazzi photo site Splash News, we’re constantly coming across images of the “Gossip Girl” cast filming in New York City. There are so many, capturing all the minutia that goes into filming each episode, that we came up with a lil’ idea — Imagining “Gossip Girl,” the completely ridiculous and potentially inane comic strip in which we imagine the show’s dialogue. Behold, our first attempt, in which Blair Waldorf has a request for Chuck Bass, and he just doesn’t get it. CW, are we hired? Click through the slideshow for each frame of the strip with inspired talk bubbles. The last slide has them all together. You know you love it.
Sparkles, sequins, and studs — oh my! If you’re not built like Alessandra Ambrosio like I am (ha! I’m definitely kidding), finding the perfect swimsuit can be a task similar to finding a needle in a haystack… so you might as well make sure that the one suit you finally settle on is killer! Of course, confidence is the only thing you really need to get heads turning and all eyes on you as you strut your stuff on the sand, but let’s face it — sparkly embellishments adorning your scantily-clad bod definitely helps! Forget your basic black bandeau and opt for a tribal-inspired stone-studded bikini from Victoria’s Secret, or even a wallet-friendly Charlotte Russe rhinestone monokini for added coverage with maximum sex appeal. We may be well into summer by now, but it’s certainly not too late to add some shimmer to your swim style. Continue reading… Keep reading »
Most women like to rest right after giving birth, but after popping one out on July 4th in a Port-A-Potty, Maryland mama Candy Michelle Vignari walked right out and asked a nearby construction worker for a ciggie. That’s right. She gave birth in a Port-A-Potty. Left the baby inside. And then smoked a cigarette. She only revealed that her newborn was clogging up the toilet when a construction worker tried to get inside the portable pooper after noticing Candy covered in blood. The worker immediately called the police, and Candy was promptly arrested. Her baby was taken to where it should have been in the first place: the hospital. Candy was charged with child abuse and reckless endangerment. Luckily, her baby is in stable condition. [DListed]
While Candy is a moron who should never be around children, let alone have one, even loving mothers get stuck in weird places when it’s time to get birthing. Their stories, after the jump.
