Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Ask and ye shall receive, Frisky readers! I gave you forearms and you said, “Thanks, that was awesome, now how about some legs?” Your wish is my command, unless you ask me to do something that doesn’t involve muscles.
While it usually takes a healthy dose of schadenfreude (pleasure derived from the pain of others) to get through my day, there’s something super depressing about the fact that Teresa Giudice of the “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” has had to put her worldly possessions up for auction. Sure, she and her husband did it to themselves by accumulating nearly $9 million in debt. But it’s still kind of heart-breaking when even their wedding bands have been taken from them. Their attorney says that Teresa isn’t pleased that her life has been put on display for the public, which is weird since she seems pretty happy about being on reality television. But if you’re hankering for some “Real Housewives” historical memorabilia, we’ve found a couple things on the auction block that might pique your interest. So start preparing for the August 22nd auction. [People] Keep reading »
An open dialogue about sex? That would be much too simple. Instead, the University of Central Florida has created an “Avatar”-like video game “that promotes sexual abstinence,” according to Fox News Orlando. How does it work? A pre-teen girl puts on a “motion capture” suit outfitted with marks which are picked up by infrared light and then simulated on-screen. Then the girl gets propositioned by another avatar. “A boy similar in age might approach the person playing the game and might ask her to make out or there might be some sexual innuendo,” explained UCF Professor Anne Norris of the UCF Institute for Simulation and Training. “They’ll have an opportunity to interact with the avatar and they’ll get points for social skills that they develop.” Which I assume means she says “no” to sex.
And hey, Floridians, the whole shebang will cost you $434,000 in federal tax dollars! Keep reading »
Personally, I would never, ever use the tester products at stores like Sephora. Everyone’s grimy fingers and germs are all over everything, the makeup palettes are left out for who knows how long, and it’s just plain dirty. But while I would never share beauty items with strangers, I’m not so picky with friends. My best best friends are allowed to borrow certain items — lip balm, eyeshadow, and blush, but never eyeliner or mascara for some reason. So when I found out just which items I should and shouldn’t be sharing, I was more than a little shocked. Read on to find out which beauty products to keep to yourself. Keep reading »
So this story comes with good and bad news. The upside is that “Beverly Hills, 90210″ hotties Luke Perry and Jason Priestley are reuniting for a movie called “Goodnight for Justice.” It’s a western about a judge trying to find the outlaws that killed his family. But the bad news is that this movie will be for the Hallmark channel, which is not really the epitome of top quality entertainment. And it gets sadder—while Luke will play the lead character in the flick, Jason will be behind the scenes, calling the shots from the director’s chair. It’s not the full-fledged reunion that “90210″ lovers have been dreaming about, but it’s better than nothing. Or at least better than another Tori Spelling reality show. Will you watch “Goodnight for Justice” to get a small taste of your favorite TV zipcode? [Deadline] Keep reading »
