  • Carl Paladino, a candidate for New York governor, banned female reporters and photographers from covering an event at a conservative Hasidic Jewish synagogue in Brooklyn. Paladino said he was respecting the religious practices of the synagogue to keep the genders separate, but critics say that’s no excuse. “Would Paladino have agreed to appear at an event at which the organizers had said, OK, but no black reporters allowed?” asks blogger Patt Morrison. “No Latino journalists?” [Los Angeles Times]
  • Colorado Republican/Tea Party Senate candidate Ken Buck, a former district attorney, refused to prosecute a rape case in 2005 because he said the victim, who had been drunk during the assault, had a case of “buyer’s remorse.” Oh no, Ken Buck, you did not go there. [Feministing]

Creepy Or Cool: The Self-Painting Dress

No, this is not a costume left over from “The Fifth Element.” It’s a project called Pseudomorphs, created by Dutch designer Anouk Wipprecht. The concept: a self-painting dress that brings together art, fashion and technology. The futuristic-looking felt garment is hooked up to stores of paint, which are fed through tubes by a mechanical system. As the paint disperses through the fabric, it creates a unique design. Check out the video to see how it works! [Fashioning Tech] Keep reading »

Heather Morris Loves Her “Glee” Ditz As Much As We Do

“I love Brittany just as much as everyone else. When I read every script, I’m laughing out loud already because it’s so great on the page. I don’t even have any inkling as to how the way I say the lines factor in, the words are just so funny. I loved the ‘dolphins are gay sharks’ line. Because it’s true. I mean, in Brittany’s eyes it’s true. I think people actually believed it might be true after that. She makes a good point. It may have changed the way people look at dolphins now.”

—”Glee” star Heather Morris reflects on her character, Brittany S. Pearce. We hope she and Artie reunite soon. They were so adorable last night. [NY Post] Keep reading »

“Project Runway”: It’s Better With Toddlers

The “Project Runway” crew is a lot less irascible when they’re two feet tall and pooping in their Pull-Ups. Every episode of “Project Runway” should be done with toddlers, damn it. But I have one problem: Where’s baby Nina Garcia?! Maybe she’s off making bitchy comments on the potty. [Babelgum] Keep reading »

Trapped Miner Yonni Barrios Emerges From Hole And Into The Warm Embrace Of His Mistress

It’s a Lifetime movie waiting to happen: “The Miner’s Mistress”! When Chilean miner Yonni Barrios (aka, miner #21 or Johnny Barrios) emerged from a hole in the ground where he has been living for the past two months, his wife was not there to meet him. Marta Salinas told the reporters she would neither be attending the rescue, nor continuing her marriage, after she learned a woman — who showed up to Yonni’s vigils crying and calling out his name — was actually his lover. Instead, the Tiger Woods of the Chilean miner set breathed his first breath of fresh air with his mistress Susana Valenzuela at his side, who kissed him and sobbed. I say cast Gael Garcia Bernal as the long-suffering husband and Eva Longoria as the sexy mistress. Because that’s exactly what these people look like in real life, as you can see.
