A man whose girlfriend broke up with him decided he wouldn’t take the matter lying down. To soothe his broken heart, he ordered a sex doll that looked like her as a replacement. So says Diego Bortolin, who runs an adult shop called Tentazioni, or “Temptations,” in Trevino, Italy, where he makes sex dolls. The 50-year-old client sent Bortolin photos of his ex and these instructions: “I want it just like her but with bigger boobs.” (Spencer Pratt, is that you?) For his ex’s synthetic twin, the man paid £15,000, or around $23,000. “Some people say it is kinky,” Bortolin said, “but she is now the perfect girlfriend as far as I can see.” Except, she can’t talk, eat, or walk. Or, you know, live. [Gizmodo] Keep reading »
Giving hope to saggy breasts everywhere, a British bra company, Triumph, has teamed up with a military fitness training school for a “boob camp” workout. How do you tone a body part that’s filled with fat (or silicone!)? The UK’s No.1 Boot Camp and Triumph claim their “boob camp” push-ups and dumb bell presses will tone the muscles around your breasts and help hold ‘em high. This sounds like a B.S. cross-promotional idea to me, but hey, maybe you have seen soldiers with amazing racks.
Do you believe a “boob camp” could actually tone your ta-tas or is this idea a crock? [AudioFuel] Keep reading »
So, Danielle Staub is off “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” But she is not out of our lives forever. As Danielle tells it, “I’ve been approached by some very large networks and production companies that are very happy to try to steal me away from Bravo. I’m keeping my options open now.” Oh, but that’s not all she has to say. “I think people who want to see more of me might be careful what they wish for. There’s a lot more of me to come! I’m the Susan Lucci of reality TV.” True dat? [People]
Ooh! Ooh! We’ve got some ideas for Danielle. After the jump, 13 shows we’d love to see her star in. Keep reading »
Exactly a year ago, I got word that a production company was interested in optioning my book, CHEER!: Inside the Secret World of College Cheerleaders, and turning it into a fictional TV show. Tonight, the show—”Hellcats“—premieres on The CW at 9 p.m. (EST), right after “America’s Next Top Model.” To hype up the show, The CW has created this awesome app called “Get Your Cheer On” where you can plug in your and your friends’ faces and watch yourselves do a cheer routine. Click here to see a version starring me, Amelia, Ami, and John DeVore. Who knew we could shake it like that? Keep reading »
Can you make a stay in the hospital fashionable? Diane von Furstenberg was willing to try when the Cleveland Clinic enlisted her expertise to redesign the classic hospital gown. In classic DvF style, she slapped an iconic print on her design, made them reversible, and incorporated a wrap construction (of course). The design also doesn’t expose the butt like standard hospital gowns, but instead allows the patient to reveal certain parts of the body without being completely exposed. So far, the Cleveland Clinic reports that patients are generally enthusiastic about the change. Well, except for the guys: “Men feel a little uncomfortable and feel it’s slightly feminine.” [Newsweek via DNA Info] Keep reading »
