Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Gaining weight often makes women better dancers because they have something to shake, if you know what we mean. Case in point: Belly dancers — and a London ballet company couldnâ€™t agree more. Balletlorent is looking for 12 pregnant women to join the cast of their next production â€œMaEternal.â€ The Artistic Director, Liv Lorent, who is pregnant herself, says, â€œYou can’t get a 25-year-old size 8 ballet dancer type body to move with the weight, the gravitas or the sheer cheerful spirit a pregnant woman.â€ So although no dance experience is necessary, you better bring it to the audition because there might be a lot of celeb competition with everyone, from Jessica Alba to Minnie Driver, being knocked up.

Who doesn’t love a good celebrity gossip rag mag? Sure, they’re our dirty little secret [Not so dirty, as my purse stuffed with Us Weekly and Life & Style can attest. -- Editor], equal to someone opening the top drawer of our nightstand. But like any gluttonous pleasure, sometimes they go too far — like this week’s Star magazine, which features “celebs without makeup”. Ooooh, booga-booga! Worse yet, one of their cover girls is 15-year-old celebuspawn and Hannah Montana star, Miley Cyrus. She’s a child star — frankly she should be makeup-free! And if you’re reading this, then I know you have at least a t-shirt older than her baby face. Plus the other girls they feature front and center, like Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson and Katie Holmes, are all 30 and under — oh the horror of seeing their actual pores, smile lines, and, ACK, zits! Star Magazine, forget about wrinkles, your “reporting” is starting to show cracks. [Star] Keep reading »
San Francisco film crew staffer, Brian Benson, was sick of being teased by co-workers that he was playing gay to get chicks — which, btw, one of the funniest pop songs by The Blood Hound Gang. So to get back at the men who were jealous of all the female attention he was getting, Benson decided to rub-a-dub-dub it in their faces by showering with his girlfriends and then taking Polaroids to prove it. By the end of the year, he had reached his goal of 100! Best of all, you can see these cheeky photos that are cleverly nudity free-ish on his website, but weâ€™re waiting for the coffee table version! [Ploomy]

That’s right: free cake! And you don’t need to go to Costco on the weekend to get a bite, you just have to go to Brides.com. The site is running a national designer cake contest and will give away the nominees — which are sure to taste as good as they look. The confections draw inspiration from designer Christian LaCroix and pop artist Wayne Theibaud to a chef’s grandma’s wallpaper. Although the website has finally found a better reason to marry than a green card, er, I mean love, the price tags may make you sicker than eating the whole thing solo — which is probably why they’re only giving the cakes away to brides. So, unfortunately, this sugar-lovin’ single gal can’t apply unless some sucker proposes soon. But, if you’ve already won someone’s heart, you can also win a cake by voting on your favorite entry. Dang, some girls have all the luck! [Brides.com] Keep reading »
Some men get really creative when it comes to proposing marriage. My dad, for example, had a restaurant freeze my mother’s engagement ring in an ice cube and put it in her water glass. Luckily, she isn’t one of those people who likes to chew on ice. Well, Hajji, a London man, wanted his proposal to be truly spectacular, and he concealed a $12,000 engagement ring inside a helium balloon so that he could literally pop the question. An unfortunate turn of events followed. A gust of wind blew the balloon out of his hand. Hajji spent two hours searching for the ring-filled balloon, but he finally had to break the news to his girlfriend. After hearing that he lost her engagement ring, the Hajji’s girlfriend was pissed. “Now she is refusing to speak to me until I get her a new ring,” he said. She sounds kind of like a diva, Hajii, maybe you should pick up a new girl instead of a new ring. Unless you have $12,000 more to blow away. [Reuters] Keep reading »
Last night I actually got so mad at Lost that I stomped my feet and cried like a small child having a tantrum.
[If you do not want last night's episode spoiled for you, you should probs stop reading now.]
How could you? How could you kill off (well, seemingly so — like I have said, I do not get this show or what the heck they are doing) sweet, masculine, inwardly calm, wonderful Jin just as he was perfecting his English? Daniel Dae Kim, who plays Jin, is such a fabulous actor and is so smoking hot, I almost don’t know what to do with myself when he comes on screen other than to mew, “Ohhh….I love Jin…sigh….” If that time in Lost‘s life is passing, producers, I am going to have another crybaby fit.

“My boyfriend and I feel the need to have sex at most apartment/house parties that we go to. Is this weird? And what are some of the best ways to pull it off without getting caught?” — Party Crashing, Dallas, TX
This is kind of like my need to do a number two at people’s parties. It’s a christening of sorts. Or, simply a marking of territory. But even though I’m the resident “sexpert”, I can honestly tell you I’ve never had sex with a guy at a party. With that said, I don’t think you’re weird. I actually want to know what kind of parties you’re going to where you can find space to have sex. I live in NYC, so the parties I’m invited to usually involve a studio apartment and an oven in the closet. The closest I ever got to “doing it” was changing a tampon in the bathroom.
My advice? The larger the party the better. The larger the house the better. If you want to be discreet, go into an unoccupied room and lock the door. Worse case somebody knocks on the door and then you stop. I think if you’re having sex at parties in the first place, a part of you wants to get caught. That’s why I poop with the door open.
