Texan conservatives need to make up their mind—first they banned gay marriage, then they accidentally banned straight marriage by writing, “This state … may not create or recognize any legal status identical or similar to marriage” and leaving out the gay part. Now they’re banning gay divorce! You would think that they would be psyched at the chance to keep a homosexual couple apart, but the decision reads, “A person does not and cannot seek a divorce without simultaneously asserting the existence and validity of a lawful marriage. Texas law, as embodied in our constitution and statutes, requires that a valid marriage must be a union of one man and one woman, and only when a union comprises one man and one woman can there be a divorce under Texas law.” This is super inconvenient for the Dallas couple who got legally married in Massachusetts four years ago and want to get divorced now.

OK, moviemakers, I get it! 3D can add a little extra voodoo magic to a film. I’ve had THIS figured out since I visited the “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” attraction at Disney World when I was two. Unfortunately, the novelty of the third dimension is rapidly wearing off. And it is only going to wear off faster if you keep using it as an excuse to remake really bad movies. Keep reading »
Billboards have been popping up nationwide forcing motorists to ponder the question, “Still a virgin?” Well, some don’t seem too open to responding, because already local politicians and news networks are demanding that the cheeky advertisements be taken down.

Levi’s is selling new Curve ID jeans in three different versions: a “slight curve,” a “demi curve,” and a “bold curve.” The sizes in the various versions basically range from 2 to 14 (although I’m aware sizes are completely and non-sensically different from company to company.) The tag line for the ad campaign is “All asses are not created equal.” The models are three light-skinned women who appear to be Caucasian. Although “curviness” is relative, none of them are curvy in the way, say, J.Lo, Beyoncé, or Crystal Renn is curvy.
To some it’s just an ad campaign for “curvy” jeans. To others, it’s racist and sexist advertising. Keep reading »
Live the dream, capture the fantasy, in one of these totally fantastical houses. The folks at the Entertainment Lobby created a collection of some of the most unbelievable houses around — including a house and yard done up in the style of “The Simpsons” cartoon intro. And you thought you were obsessive! [Entertainment Lobby] Keep reading »
Rachel Uchitel has had a rocky road on “Celebrity Rehab.” She agreed to do the show to deal with her Ambien addiction and “emotional issues,” which most people assumed to mean her tendency to get involved with married and famous men—she was linked not only to Tiger Woods but also David Boreanaz. But in late July, she abruptly left the show after an intense therapy session and checked into a hotel. She returned less than 24 hours later, after hearing pleas from the producers and co-stars Janice Dickinson, Eric Roberts (bro of Julia), and Jason Wahler (of “The Hills”). The freak-out was apparently over having to talk about her father, who died of a cocaine overdose when she was 15.
Last week, Rachel visited the site of another trauma with Dr. Drew. She made the trek to Ground Zero. Keep reading »
