Confession: I actually watched “Skating With The Stars.” I was mostly just curious to see Vince Neil of legendary rock band Mötley Crüe get on the ice. Yes, I went through a hard rock phase in elementary school. GNR forever! There’s something about an old, bloated, alchie try to do a one of those spinny things that tickles my funny bone. Predictably, watching Vince tumble and fumble was the highlight of the show, aside from judge Johnny Weir skating to Lady Gaga. I’ll save you the trouble of watching the rest of the show. It was just as ridiculous and insufferably boring as it sounds. Keep reading »
Leave it up to Miley Cyrus to ruin a perfectly good legal drug and make it a national issue, pushing state governments to consider bans on the stuff.

At the time, it was sold as “incense” but now they sell it pretty freely on the internet. Anyway, because I’m a huge nerd, I also wrote a paper about it in college and I’ve got the facts in case you’re as curious as I was! [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Jenna Bush is about to become a New Yorker. She and hubby Henry Hager have sold their townhouse in Baltimore, moved out in an unmarked truck last week, and are reportedly now house hunting in New York City. Which will be convenient for Jenna since her twin sister Barbara already lives in the Village (that is where she is supposedly crashing at the moment) and because it will bring her closer to the “Today” show studio, where she is an occasional correspondent. Her husband will continue his energy gig in Baltimore, we guess working from afar. [NY Daily News]
