Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Especially when the bitch is Joan Crawford! That crazy drama mama supposedly had her way with everyone from her producers to Marilyn Monroe, but when Bette Davis passed on Crawford’s bisexual advances, the legendary bitter battle supposedly began. The truth is out! According to a new book, when Davis had a crush on one of her other Dangerous co-stars, Crawford set out to bone Franchot Tone first. She invited him over to her place and when he arrived, she was tanning in her solarium naked, and he didn’t leave until well after dark. Of the man stealing, Crawford recounted, “Franchot isn’t interested in Bette, but I wouldn’t mind giving her a poke if I was in the right mood. Wouldn’t that be funny?” Although, Bette won her first Oscar for the 1935 film, she lost Franchot, who became Joan’s second husband. From then on, they literally beat each other, every chance they got. Now, both have passed on, but somewhere in heaven you know the cat fight continues. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

5. Orlando Bloom Have you ever seen him in Troy, that atrocious Brad Pitt movie? He plays the biggest wimpy turd. Honestly, thinking about him in the role, and how convincing he was, makes my stomach turn. Plus, look at that pube ‘stache. Barf.

Even though participation in government assistance programs has risen a little in recent years for mothers who have given birth in the last year, participation is still lower than it was when welfare reform was enacted in 1996. According to a report by the U.S. Census Bureau, the mothers who were most likely to receive assistance were younger than 25, living with either no other adult or an unmarried partner, a minority, did not work in the past month, never attended college, or did not receive child support. In 2004, 7.5 million mothers of childbearing age (15 to 44) participated in at least one of six different public assistance programs. [U.S. Census Bureau] Keep reading »
Part three in our series about The Hills‘ girls’ style is Audrina Partridge. The most “rock ‘n’ roll” of the group, Audrina has a real knack for infusing even the most basic items with a edge, which she softens with feminine touches.

Verena Von Pfetten writes on The Huffington Post that she’s not attracted to hot guys. She finds them attractive, but judges the book by its cover. “They’re trained from a young age to be (often) unjustifiably self-assured, to eschew personality and affability for cocksure confidence, and to generally treat people like the feudal system is alive and kickin’,” she says.
