Too hot, too bright, too in your eyes? If you’re having issues with the sun, you should probably contact its owner, Angeles Duran. The 49-year-old Spanish woman has a notarized document claiming the center of our solar system is registered to her. As the legal owner of the sun, her first order of business is to tax all of its users and divide the profits between the Spanish government, research, the ending of world hunger, and herself. “It is time to start doing things the right way, if there is an idea for how to generate income and improve the economy and people’s well-being, why not do it?” she said. I hope she’s thought far ahead enough to take out an insurance policy on the sun, which is expected to die in five billion years. Until then … everyone must pay! [Google] Keep reading »
Weeks ago, we met the evangelical housewives who submit to their husbands. Now let’s meet the evangelical “stay-at-home daughters” — young women who forgo higher education and a career to stay close to their fathers and learn how to be a good homemaker and helper before they are getting married.
Writing in Bitch Magazine, author Gina McGalliard explains how these young women claim all women are much happier submitting to a family-focused life, rather than getting their own careers and jobs. Whether the woman needs “special protection” from her husband or her father, it’s all part of the same “Christian patriarchy movement.” Keep reading »
Rich over at fourfour created this awesome cut of Mariah Carey on the Home Shopping Network yesterday talking about being pregnant about 4,000 times, about perfume about 3,567 times, and generally reclining like the Queen of Sheba on a sofa as co-hosts get treated like the lowly subjects they are about 789 times. Also, she collects perfume bottles, and she wants you to know. Granted, the woman had six hours to fill while hawking her holiday album, fragrance, and existence, but the woman is a diva. And I mean that in a good way. Sort of. [fourfour] Keep reading »
In anticipation of the release of her third LP, Let Freedom Reign (out today, Nov. 30), Island Def Jam recording artist Chrisette Michele let a bunch of bloggers pick her brain last night at an event hosted by the Carol’s Daughter store in Harlem. We all know she’s an extremely talented singer and musician (you know, one who actually has a voice and isn’t about gyrating for attention), so what I really wanted to know were Chrisette’s style and beauty preferences. Find out how she gets the power to voice her thoughts and why the reaction to her natural hair was annoying, after the jump. Keep reading »
If you’ve been following “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” you’re well aware that Kelsey Grammer‘s soon-to-be-ex-wife Camille is kinda pissed that after 13 years of marriage, her hubby dropped her for a much younger woman named Kayte Walsh. And on top of that, he just bought them a $6.5 million NYC apartment with four bedrooms. One of Camille’s favorite things to whine about was how small their old NY apartment was. [TMZ]
We were just as curious as you as to what could cause Kelsey to divorce such a delightful woman, so we’ve rounded up the goods on Kelsey’s new obsession, Kayte! And no, she is not to be confused with Kate Walsh of “Private Practice.” Keep reading »
I wanted to be excited that Kim Zolciak’s 13-year-old daughter Brielle actually asked her mom for a purity ring on the latest episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” but the whole thing fell apart for me when she started negotiating her abstinence expiration date. 18? 19? 20? I don’t know a whole lot about abstinence rings (or abstinence), but I was under the impression that wearing one meant you were saving yourself for marriage, not for college. So just to recap, Brielle got a $3,000 diamond ring to keep her hymen intact until college. And Kim thinks this is brilliant. Am I missing something here? Do purity rings expire whenever you want them to? And … what the hell is Kim wearing? Please help me understand. Keep reading »
