Star Couplings: Jesus Luz IS Marrying Madonna

  • Jesus Luz’s father told a Brazilian magazine that his son is marrying Madonna. [Dlisted] — I don’t expect this marriage to last longer than a year — long enough for him to make a name for himself, other than being Madge’s arm candy.
  • Shannen Doherty is being accused of breaking up the marriage of current boyfriend Kurt Iswarienko and his ex-wife Taryn Band. [Perez Hilton]
  • Rebecca Romijn opened up to InStyle about motherhood. “Being a mom makes me feel whole and like I understand the meaning of life.” [People]

    If Porn Saps A Guy’s Manliness, What Does It Do To Women?

    Brett and Kate McKay are the husband/wife team behind the Art of Manliness, which seeks to help men “be better husbands, better fathers, and better men.” Brett was turned off by traditional men’s magazines like Men’s Health because they were filled with articles about sex and six-pack abs. “Was this all there was to being a man?” he asks.

    It should come as no surprise that Brett has a big problem with porn. After all, it’s filled with men with six-pack abs having sex. In “The Problem with Porn,” he warns men that porn “saps your manliness” and lists five reasons why. Our Mind of Man has shared his perspective on guys and porn, and when I IM’d him about the article, he wrote back, “Porn is sexy. Too much porn is bad. Wine is yummy. Too much is bad.” But if porn saps a guy’s manliness, what does it do to women? Keep reading »

    Pfizer To Give Out Free Viagra To The Unemployed

    In this economy, a lot of people are suffering, but at least one corporate giant doesn’t think our sex lives should. Pharmaceutical company Pfizer announced it will give “free prescription drugs — including its anti-impotence drug, Viagra — to people who no longer have jobs and health insurance.” Pfizer is offering about 70 other prescription drugs, which will all be available for free for up to a year to anyone who has been laid off since January 1st. But sorry, guys — to qualify, you need to have already been taking the drugs before you lost your job. [via NYDailyNews] Keep reading »

    Outhouse Chic: Creative Ways To Gussy Up Your TP

    tp slide 1 jpg
    Running out of toilet paper when you need it the most is … a problem, to put it mildly. Since our digestive well-being depends on having a constant supply of TP available, people usually buy in bulk. But once you get all your paper products home, then what? We’ve seen the various holders at Bed, Bath & Beyond and thrown an old basket into the bathroom to keep the overflow organized, but why not get creative?

    First up, think sleek. With a clear vase, you know when you’re about to run out. Try this Target flower vase for $31.99. If one roll is about five inches wide and the vase is about six and a half inches wide, it’s the perfect size. As you can tell, I’m a little TP obsessed.

    Quickies!: The Feds Try To Take A Tot’s Illicit Drugs

  • The Food and Drug Administration is demanding Cheerios change its advertising that says the cereal will reduce cholesterol by 4 percent or risk being removed from market shelves. [Dumb As A Blog] — Way to get in bed with the drug industry, FDA!
  • Tahlia Brookins, 18, from the most recent cycle of “America’s Next Top Model” is pregnant. “I was told multiple times over and over that I couldn’t get pregnant … My initial reaction to my pregnancy was shock,” she said. [PopEater] — Good thing she was eliminated.
  • Judge Wade McCree in Detroit has a rather novel idea for sentencing fathers who don’t pay their child support. He makes them watch “Maury Povich” at least once a month instead of going to jail. “Some of these men in my court watch the show and see how ridiculous some of the deadbeats look, and then they realize it’s them,” he explained. [Perez Hilton]

    Behind The Scenes At Vogue With Anna Wintour

    We normally don’t have plans on Sunday night, but this week, we’re booked. At long last, the Anna Wintour “60 Minutes” segment will air on CBS at 7 p.m. ET. Recently, Anna has been opening herself up to the public much more than usual. Not only is “The September Issue” documentary being released this September, but she also spoke in New York earlier this week. I attended her Q&A on Tuesday, and most of the discussion focused on the business of fashion and publishing (though she did divulge that she “hasn’t been able to look at brown the same way” since wearing that color school uniform growing up). We’re hoping the “60 Minutes” segment will let us into her life a little more, and we know we’ll get to hear her talk about her ever-present sunglasses: “They are seriously useful. I can sit in a show and if I am bored out of my mind, nobody will notice… At this point, they have become, really, armor.” [CBS News] Keep reading »

    Would The Financial Crisis Have Happened If More Women Were In Charge?

    As we’re all trying to figure out what went wrong in our banking system to cause the recession we’re in, we’re blaming just about anyone and everyone involved, especially the men at the top. Yes, I said the men. Not many of the folks getting blamed on the news are women, so it leads us to wonder, would we be in this position if there had been more women leading the banking industry?

    German news magazine Der Spiegel interviewed Mary Ellen Iskenderian, the president and CEO of Women’s World Banking, an international micro-finance organization, and she addressed this. While she didn’t come out and say the recession wouldn’t have happened if women were in charge, she does say the story line might have played out differently… Keep reading »
