Unfair Treatment Of Women In Domestic Violence Cases?

For some 20 years, campaigners have argued that courtrooms don’t treat men and woman equally when it comes to domestic violence homicides. According to them, “Judges have been known to express sympathy for men who claim they were nagged or cheated on by female partners, but often appear to have little for women who kill after being raped by their partners or experiencing domestic violence.”

Brad Pitt Keeps Baby Brother Doug From Congress

The National Enquirer would like us to believe that Brad Pitt snubbed out his younger brother Doug Pitt’s political career by urging him not to run for Missouri Congress, even though he probably would have won the election. Apparently, Brad and Doug work on community charity projects together and if his Republican brother took a seat, their efforts would not only reek of “political cronyism,” and Brad would lose his most trusted confidant. Plus, he was hoping to use Doug’s business smarts in his film production company?

Blah, blah, blah. The important thing is—Brad Pitt has a brother! Why weren’t we already stalking him?! Check him out in the clip above—it’s not particularly exciting, but hey, it’s all we could find. Sure, he’s a Republican, but they can be hot, too. He looks more like Zach Braff than Brad, but he’s got Pitt genes buried deep inside him and we must get them out and make clones. Baby Pitts for everyone! [Celebitchy] Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Cheri,” “Transformers 2,” “The Hurt Locker,” “My Sister’s Keeper”

Summer lovin’ is in the air, which means you’re probably wearing sundresses and snogging in parks and sharing Dippin’ Dots while the sun beats down on your tan shoulders. Or, if you’re anything like me, you’re accidentally making s’mores every night and avoiding dates because you “have to wash your hair.” This is why movie theaters are awesome—you can eat in the dark and no one cares if you’re dressed like a homeless person. Go see “My Sister’s Keeper,” “Cheri,” “The Hurt Locker,” and if there’s time or you’re trying to bag a nerd who’s into loud noises, “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.” Keep reading »

Stupid Tabloid Claim Of The Week: Is Michelle Obama A Lush?!

The war on Michelle Obama continues. This time it’s not her looks that her critics are attacking, but her sobriety. According to The National Enquirer, “Michelle Obama – cracking under the pressure of being First Lady – is drinking way more than she should, friends fear.” Oh really? The tabloid lists “close sources,” “friends,” and “insiders” who have lined up to tattle on Michelle’s excessive drinking habits which include: “overindulging during (her) date night” with the President in New York City on May 30th; knocking down “a glass or two of champagne” on a private jet and downing “two martinis during dinner at the Greenwich Village restaurant Blue Hill.

”  That doesn’t exactly qualify for a membership at Alcoholics Anonymous, otherwise we’d be seeing her there, but the National Enquirer must have different standards. [via I Hate The Media] Keep reading »
