Ryan Simkin spent half a decade as an employee for “Girls Gone Wild,” working his way up to be Joe Francis‘ right hand man. And now he’s written a book all about the experience called Flash! Bars, Boobs, And Busted: 5 Years On The Road With Girls Gone Wild. Naturally, Francis is suing to stop sales of the book. So what is it Joe doesn’t want you to read? Some juicy tidbits after the jump, including how Paris Hilton allegedly smuggles drugs on commercial flights. Keep reading »
Look, we’re not advocating criminal activity; we’re just saying that if you’re going to steal something from a stranger’s house, why not take some bacon? Like this as-yet-unidentified thief from Red Hill, Surry, England, who surreptitiously stole a telephone and a packet of bacon from a house.

Said Detective Con Knowles, who is diligently working the case, “The victims are at a loss to understand why someone would break in to their house and steal a packet of bacon and we are equally stumped as to who this potentially peckish suspect is.” [BBC] Keep reading »

So it’s fair to ask if our social attitudes have swung entirely in the opposite direction, too: Does putting girls whose only claim to fame is getting knocked up while they still had a learner’s permit “glamorize” teen pregnancy?

“I was trying to keep it private, but we’re having a boy! I have a little penis inside of me.”

Ah, the MTV Video Music Awards — the one day a year when you might actually see some videos on ye olde MTV. It happens to be one of our favorite awards shows, because you never know what might happen — or what certifiably insane thing someone might wear.
After the jump, we’ve got some of the very worst sartorial choices from VMAs years past. What’s your best of the worst?
Kate Hudson totally shut it down when she sang a few bars of “Silver Springs” by Fleetwood Mac on a recent episode of “The Rachel Zoe Project.” This just so happens to be my favorite song of all time. I was delighted to find that Rachel and Kate agree with me. Apparently runway shows + Stevie Nicks = the ultimate fashion experience. I just died. Keep reading »
