Estonian Weight Loss Clinic Uses Fat Girl And Skinny Girl As “Before” And “After” Models

An Estonian weight loss clinic used two pretty blond women — one large and one skinny — to advertise its techniques by having them walk around wearing T-shirts that read “Before” and “After.” Clever gimmick, I’ll admit. But it’s degrading for the bigger girl to walk around all day being fat-shamed as the “before” chick. No amount of money she was paid is worth being exploited for that nastiness.

13 Celebrities Who Will Not Be Your Facebook Friend

So, Justin Timberlake and Jesse Eisenberg may currently be starring in “The Social Network,” aka the Facebook movie, but they aren’t so into the idea of actually having a Facebook account. Justin once said, “I’m sort of admittedly ridiculously stupid with computers. I don’t have a lot of time between work, and so much of that time goes to watching SportsCenter.” He later elaborated, “I think your life is as private as you choose it to be… That’s the beauty of this country, freedom of choice.” Wait, which reason is it, Justin?

Jesse is clearer on why he only joined the site for three weeks as research and then hopped right back off. “I have to talk about myself all the time, and I’m disgusted with myself, and don’t want to go home and write about the breakfast I tried to eat,” he said. [Daily Beast]

After the jump, more stars who are anti-Facebook and/or -Twitter.

Does Your Real-Life Lover Live Up To Your Dream Partner?

From the Tell Us Something We Don’t Know Department: A study from the University of Sheffield and the University of Montpelier (in the U.K. and France, respectively) found that people’s real-life lovers differed drastically from their “dream” companions. Researchers “found that our actual mates differ in height, weight and body mass index from the ones we would describe as ideal.” Yup, that sounds about right.

Fall TV Guide: Vanilla Ice On A Home Makeover Show?


Here’s an answer to the question “Whatever happened to Vanilla Ice?” Apparently, after his rise and even more spectacular fall, he’s become a house flipper. He rehabbed and sold his first house 15 years ago, and has done many since then. Now the DIY Network has made a show following him on his biggest project yet—a 7,000-square-foot mansion.

“The West Wing” creator Aaron Sorkin is just like you—when he is pissed off about a blog post, he takes to the comments section! Sorkin, who wrote “The Social Network,” left a long comment on a blog post written by TV writer Ken Levine, who reviewed the movie. Another commenter, calling themselves Tarazza, posted a comment which said she loved the Facebook movie except for “the lack of a decent portrayal of women.” With the exception of Rashida Jones‘ character, Tarazza wrote, the women in the movie “were basically sex objects/stupid groupies,” adding “kinda makes me think that Aaron Sorkin (though I love his writing) failed the women in this script. Kind of a shame considering he’s written great women characters like C.J. Gregg!” (The female communications director on “The West Wing.”)

Sorkin then took to Ken Levine’s blog himself. Keep reading »
