Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom Might Get Back Together

  • My favorite former reality TV couple, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom, have reportedly been dating again. His drug addiction was the biggest instigator of their breakup and he’s supposedly clean these days, so I’m hoping against hope that they get back together! [Celeb Dirty Laundry]

Elisabeth Hasselbeck Uses Sydney Hostage Crisis To Defend CIA Torture Program

Elisabeth Hasselbeck
Um, What?

Yesterday, as a siege in Sydney, Australia unfolded at the hands of a lone gunman who took over a cafe and held over a dozen people hostage, “Fox & Friends” co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck jumped at the chance to use the situation as a jumping off point to defend the CIA torture program — as if the two are in any way intertwined. After the show provided an update on the scene in Sydney (which has since resulted in the death of two hostages), she suddenly changed the subject:

“Meanwhile, the actual individuals here at home who have been looking into and trying to stop attacks like this and perhaps future hostage situations, as we are still at war indeed with ISIS and terrorism, are the CIA, and they have been painted as the bad guys at home.”

Oh, and then they cut right to a clip of Dick Cheney defending the torture program on “Meet The Press,” as if that has anything to do with anything.

Carry That Weight Activists Leave Columbia A Mattress-Sized Check For The Fine Leveled On Their Protest

In October, Carry That Weight activists — who are helping Columbia University student Emma Sulkowicz carry a mattress similar to the one on which she was raped in order to bring attention to the university’s negligence of rape victims — staged a protest in which they left 28 mattresses at the doorstep of university President Lee Bollinger, one for each of the students who had signed a Title IX complaint against the university. In a breathtaking and unintentionally meaningful move, the university promptly threw the 28 mattresses in a dumpster and fined the activists $471 for damaging the mattresses.

In response, the activists left a mattress-sized check (well, OK, it was a check painted onto a mattress) for Bollinger at his doorstep again, asking Bollinger to support the activists. The actual fine has been covered by women’s rights nonprofit Ultraviolet, who may have another few dollars to pay out, now. Keep reading »
