Knowd: Simply Irresistible
The butt bra has been making the rounds all over the Internet lately because it absurdly promises to “enhance the lift, shape and volume of the derriere.” This contraption not only looks extremely uncomfortable to wear, but it also looks as if it would create the reverse of VPL. Instead of panty lines, you’d get VPBM — visibly pronounced butt mounds (I just made that up, but you get the drift), which would look like a totally different entity from the rest of your body. Still this ridiculous product is hardly the first of it’s kind. Throughout the ages, women have been subjected to many a contraption that was either supposed to protect the body or show it off, so we put together an interesting slideshow of some modern day body enhancers. As a bonus, we included one contraption for men. Keep reading »
Breakups are bad enough without looking like a total fool in the aftermath. So, in a bold move of honesty, and to help save others in the same place, I’m going to admit that in the throes of some past breakups I’ve been a little bit intense. I’ve learned my lessons on what not to do through a lot of tears, friend and family interventions, and often through making huge mistakes. And now I will pass along this harnessed wisdom to you.
Now, there are probably a lot of people who are just as stubborn as me, who in the face of rejection might just want to burn their ex’s stuff and cause a huge scene — to hell with other people’s advice. However, I’m going to beg you not to – it’s not worth it. Of course, just for clarification, if someone did something truly horrendous that warrants major destruction, such as cheating? Well then all bets are off.

Lo Bosworth has managed to go from funny, affable dumb-but-in-a-cute-way best friend to totally bitchy and evil in a matter of episodes. Lo reminds me of the girls in high school who, even while they’re chatting with you, were totally judging your outfit and your hair and what you were eating. On last night’s episode of The Hills, it’s the aftermath of the Lo/Audrina talk/fight, where Audrina basically told Lo she didn’t give a hoot about being friends with her and Lo passive aggressively laid the blame for their mutual awkwardness on Audrina. I sort of thought Audrina was harsh, until last night, when it because clear that Lo is just not as adorable and funny as we thought — girlfriend undresses you with her eyes, to the point where all you want to do is leave — and that’s what Audrina did.

So, that priest who organized the Miss Sister Italy contest? Well, his superiors, including the local bishop, weren’t happy with his innovative way of calling attention and praise to nuns and he had to suspend his project. “It was interpreted as more of a physical thing,” Father Antonio Rungi said. “Now, no one is saying that nuns can’t be beautiful, but I was thinking about something more complete.” [Reuters] Keep reading »
If I could still do a cartwheel without hurting myself, I would. Just watching Shawn Johnson do those amazing gymnastic-tastic moves at the Olympics made me hearken back to a time when I would spend recess walking on my hands without worrying that my shirt was covering my face instead of my mosquito bites. Sigh, those were the days. But sadly, a grade school in Australia has banned “dangerous” cartwheels and handstands in an attempt to avoid injuries. Needless to say, parents are baffled and kids are bummed. What’s next: banning writing because it could cause carpal tunnel? Outlawing hopscotch because you could sprain your ankle?
- Solange Sol-AngeL and the Hadley St. Dreams
Beyonce’s baby sister, Solange has finally stepped out of her sister’s shadow and made a record of her own. A jazzy, poppy collection of laments, it just doesn’t have the bitch slap of her sister’s dance tracks. From the sounds of songs like “Tony”, Solange has been whining behind the scenes for a while, broken-hearted, waiting to breakout. But just like most moaning for attention, who wants to listen?
As Tropical Storm Fay floods my grandma out in Florida, I have one wish: a rad new raincoat. Sure hurricane season can be a bummer, but we can still look good right?! Mother Nature doesn’t have a thing on a fashionable lady. This Super Kawaii clear raincoat showers you with fake flowers, shows off your outfit, and makes you a one-woman garden party! Well, it’ll at least have you doing a rain dance so you can wear it more. [$388, Patricia Field]
CNN has a story up today about people who trade sex for gifts or favors, from a woman who had sex with a guy for two weeks in exchange for a jungle tour in Brazil, to husbands who vow to be handy around the house in exchange for morning nookie. You know what I say to this story? Duh, obviously, and don’t we all? The essence of dating is exchanging sex for dinners, date activities, and expensive wine. Being in a relationship is all about trading a blow job despite “I’m not in the mood honey” because honey cooked an amazing dinner. The trade may not be spoken or out in the open, but it’s there, in your head. And who cares? Dating and relationships are about compromise and reaching a point that is mutually beneficial. The girl in the story may have slept with a guy she didn’t find that attractive because he was being nice enough to give her a jungle tour and so what? She appreciated the gesture, they had fun and for all the guy knows, she was in the sack with him because she was hot for him. Keep reading »
