What’s Up With All The Sperm Donation Movies?


Last night, I saw a trailer for “The Switch,” which comes out August 20th. The rom-com is about two good friends, played by Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman. Jennifer has decided to have a baby on her own and throws a party to celebrate her upcoming insemination. At the party, not only is Jennifer’s sperm donor there, but Jason’s character gets so drunk that, while in the bathroom, he pours out the sperm donor’s, uh, donation and replaces it with his own. This is the third big movie to come out about sperm donation in the past year. It also was once titled “The Baster,” which ewww, is not an image any of us needed. Keep reading »

Packing List: Coney Island

Every Thursday throughout the summer, we’re bringing you our Packing List, a guide to gearing up for your weekend jaunts, which is what the season’s all about!

Everyone should go to Coney Island at least once. (And maybe just once.) Both kitschy and kind of gross at the same time, it’s worth the subway trip to eat some hot dogs, sunbathe (we don’t recommend actually going in the water), and to ride the Cyclone. Definitely pack sneakers as you’ll be walking around, a banana clip because that’s the best way to put up your windblown hair (and when in Rome … ), a slinky cover-up, and some fun lip gloss to suit the amusement park theme.

Cheapskate: Hayden-Harnett’s Summer Sale

Amelia turned me on to Hayden-Harnett last year, and I’ve been hooked ever since. This super cool Brooklyn brand has tough leather and nylon bags, retro-style swimsuits, and edgy fashions. And while we’d love to go on a Hayden-Harnett shopping spree once a month, our inner financial planner warns us not to. Instead, we just check back often for the super sales that occur frequently throughout the year. Right now, Hayden-Harnett is trying to move its summer merchandise, which means you can snap up rompers, maillots, and clutches for a tiny fraction of the original price. But you must act fast because sizes are limited. Find the items that we want in our closets right now, after the jump, and be sure to check out Hayden-Harnett for yourself. Keep reading »

Erin Andrews Talks Stalking On “Good Morning America”

Erin Andrews is a class act — that’s the takeaway from her first special contributor segment for “Good Morning America.” Erin’s six-minute spot explored a subject she is all too familiar with: women being stalked. Michelle was stalked by an ex-boyfriend for two years whose craziness escalated from phone calls saying he missed her to threats to kill her. Sara was stalked after a disagreement with a family member who called her hundreds of times a week for a whole year before law enforcement got involved. And Dawn, like Erin, was stalked by a stranger who preyed on African-American women. Keep reading »

Kathy Ireland Would Like You To Buy Her Wigs

Having never tried on one of model-turned-entrepreneur Kathy Ireland‘s wigs from her new wig line, Kathy Ireland Wigs, I can’t vouch for their quality, style, or whatever else one uses to judge wigs, but I can say that they might have gone the extra mile to come up with some better Kathy Ireland-in-a-wig photos, or at least hired someone who knows how to get a wig on a head that doesn’t make it look like your cranium is being attacked by a wayward armadillo. This style is called “Angel,” and it retails for $114. Check out more Kathy Ireland-in-a-wig styles after the jump. Keep reading »

“Real World”‘s Lowest Point Ev-ah: Cops Called Over Toilet Toothbrush Incident

It’s the “Real World” episode we’ve all been waiting for: somebody’s toothbrush is scrubbing the toilet.

If you haven’t been watching, a little background: Preston is the mellow black guy questioning his sexuality, Ryan is the uber-aggressive homophobic white guy who called Preston a “f****t.” (Ryan, by the way, is a hairdresser. Just sayin’.) These idiots are, like, 18 years old so they are handling their differences maturely. Ryan took Preston’s smokes, dropped trou, and rubbed the ciggies in his buttcrack. Meanwhile, Preston scrubbed the toilet with Ryan’s toothbrush … and peed on it. Keep reading »
