Funny lady Jenny McCarthy has inked a multi-year, multi-platform deal with Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Productions. The projects include a syndicated talk show and a blog on Oprah.com, which Jenny launched last Friday, discussing PMS and sugar. Rachael Ray and Dr. Phil became household names after making frequent appearances on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and signing deals with Harpo, so the chances of Jenny becoming another Oprah protege-turned-TV mogul are high. She’s discussed her struggles with her son’s autism and published several books, including Louder Than Words: A Mother’s Journey in Healing Autism and Mother Warriors: A Nation of Parents Healing Autism Against All Odds. Jenny, a former Playboy model who hosted MTV’s “Singled Out” in the ’90s, seems like an unlikely choice for Oprah. Would you watch a talk show hosted by Jenny McCarthy?

Johnny Weir is making us go ga-ga. The three-time U.S. champion performed a number to Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” for South Korea’s “Festa On Ice” tourney and did the pop style icon justice in a black jumpsuit with a studded, asymmetrical patent harness and silver smashed metallic sleeves. Plus, he gives a dead sexy poker face. [via WOW] Keep reading »
Oh, dear. Miss California Carrie Prejean, who made headlines for her answer to a question about gay marriage at last month’s Miss USA pageant, has more secrets spilling out of her closet. First, it was revealed that the Miss California Organization paid for Prejean to get breast implants prior to the Miss USA pageant. Now, a topless photos of the beauty queen have been leaked to The Dirty. Miss USA judge Perez Hilton claims his sources say more photos of Prejean in a state of undress are due to hit the internet. Normally, I’d be like, “Topless? Who cares?” Considering Prejean believes “gay marriage isn’t biblically correct,” I’m amped to holler: “Hypocrite!” Stripping your top off and shooting the camera that come hither look is not what Jesus would do. Click here to see the full photo (safe for work!).
Prejean released a statement: “I am a Christian, and I am a model. Models pose for pictures, including lingerie and swimwear photos. Recently, photos that were taken of me as a teenager have been released surreptitiously to a tabloid website that openly mocks me for my Christian faith. I am not perfect, and I will never claim to be.”
One small problem? This puts Prejean at odds with her contract with the Miss California Organization, which prohibits its representatives for posing for photographs in a state of full or partial nudity. Keep reading »
The 9th Annual Masturbate-a-Thon took place in San Francisco last weekend, and the competition was stiff! The event, sponsored by the Center for Sex & Culture, was founded in honor of surgeon general Jocelyn Elders who was fired after she suggested teens be taught masturbation as a means towards safe sex. Now, her work lives on in the form of an annual contest. This year’s winners packed some serious heat. A new US record was set by Mr. Flint Greasewood. His swimmers went the distance, shooting a whopping five feet. Two world records were set, as well. The Lusty Lady Theater beat the Women’s Tag Team, and Mr. Masanobu Sato broke his own masturbation world record at nine hours and 58 minutes. I know we don’t want a no minute man, but 10 hours?

You thought prom was a big fuss? Try the monstrous fashion madness that is the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala.
Hosted by Anna Wintour, the Met Ball is the tick that is Hollywood feasting itself on the blood of high fashion … Or is it the other way around? No one can really tell through all the air kisses and champagne fizz, but no problemo! All that matters is that if you’re a starlet who’s lucky enough to have a ticket, you can wear a dress that costs the same as an entire year of a private college education.
This caveat excludes most of us from going—but that doesn’t mean if you ever find yourself stuck in an elevator with Andre Leon Talley, you can’t at least know what you’re talking about. Here’s your cheat sheet on the exclusive Met Ball. Keep reading »

A pregnant woman awaiting trial doesn’t usually make international headlines. But add the fact that the woman is facing death by firing squad, and you’ve got a story that’s getting attention in Britain and the U.S. This is the fate of Samantha Orobator, a 20-year-old British woman suspected of drug trafficking in Laos. Orobator was arrested on August 5, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, for allegedly carrying about 1.1 pounds of heroin. Keep reading »
In the June issue of Vanity Fair, writer Rich Cohen forgoes the usual bowing down that occurs in celebrity features. Instead, there is only a little reverential treatment of cover girl Jessica Simpson and a fair amount of criticism — well, at least for a glossy profile.
There have been danger signs. First, the sudden weight gain, as evidenced by pictures that turned up in the tabloids earlier this year showing the starlet, onstage, looking less than slender, holding the microphone like a turkey leg, and wearing what were described everywhere as “mom jeans.”
She didn’t want to talk about her weight, so, of course, that’s all I could think of—it gilded each question in my mind: What are you working on now [that you’re fat]? Do you see yourself as part of a class, with Christina and Britney [or are you too fat]? Do you feel that your relationship with Tony Romo has affected his performance as a quarterback [because you are fat]?
And our personal favorite:
As an actress, she’s slightly less skillful than the actress who replaced Suzanne Somers on Three’s Company.
