Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
How many kids is too many kids? If you’re Daad Murad Abdul Rahman, then you can never have enough. The 64-year-old Arab Emirates citizen already has 88 children but wants to make it an even 100. So he’s marrying an 18-year-old Indian girl named Aisha and hopes to have 100 kids by 2015 (this is making my uterus hurt). Rahman’s been married 15 times and currently has three wives. This latest union was arranged via his doctor and Rahman says he will bring Aisha back to his home city of Ajman after the wedding. He says he’ll stop marrying when he has an even 100 children.
Imagine reaching into the fridge for a soda and finding an ultra-bendy human being in there. In this totally-not-at-all-Photoshopped pic, Zlata, the most bendable woman in the world, shoves herself into a moldy fridge. Zlata can twist herself up into virtually any shape, and has done tons and tons of porn-y fetish-related magazine shoots. This is one of the few “safe for work” (but perhaps not “safe for the squeamish”) we can show you. Zlata got to be, um, Zlata, because her cartilage hasn’t developed like normal, and is still as flexible as a baby’s. Oh, and check out a video of Zlata doing her crazy contortion thing, too.

After the jump, other stars who’ve had their secrets spoiled thanks to friend or co-stars who accidentally broke the news first.
Well, that was fast! Just a week after Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo announced they are engaged, and but a few days after telling Ryan Seacrest that she’s, like, totes happy for him, Jessica Simpson has confirmed that she is engaged to boyfriend Eric Johnson. What a coinkidink! Simpson and Johnson have been dating since May and he traveled to Italy with her to celebrate her 30th birthday in July. The two were already planning on spending the holidays together, but I guess they now have something new to be thankful for — managing to steal Lachey and Minnillo’s thunder. As Michael K over at Dlisted noted, let the bride wars begin! [People via Dlisted] Keep reading »
The media lords hath heard our prayers! If you aren’t already freaking out, you will when you hear this: Fashion blogging sensation Tavi and Jane Pratt (founder and editor of Sassy and Jane mags) are teaming up to create a new teen magazine. Tavi made the announcement on her blog, saying, “You guys may know how I feel about Sassy. You also may know that I’ve been babbling about how I think our generation should get one, too. Jane Pratt, founding editor and then EIC of Sassy, also became aware, and emailed me, and we’ve met a couple times, and it looks like we’re going to start a magazine for an audience of wallflowerly teenage girls.”
People like us have been clamoring for ages for a Sassy revival, and we could see the potential for that to happen with Tavi, but as she wisely points out, “[this magazine] won’t be Sassy (or the rebirth of Sassy, or Sassy 2.0) and nor do we want it to be.” Rather, the publication will “use Sassy as a point of reference for the whole teen-magazine-that-doesn’t-suck thing …” We love how Tavi wants to create something new but still retain the nostalgia for an era that feels creative to us now … Keep reading »
