If you watched the Democratic National Convention Wednesday night, you probably saw Bill Clinton’s stirring speech. But while the former president still has the same unfettered charisma, quick wit and charm he possessed while in the Oval Office, you might have spotted that there was something was different about him. There was noticeably less of him.
Bill Clinton may be the only former president who is also currently vegan. Ever.
Bill used to be the guy you could count on to stop off at a McDonald’s mid-run. But ever since he was taken down by not one, but two heart surgeries, Clinton has nixed the fries.

I swear to Bubba, after Bill Clinton’s epic 50-or-so minute speech — the majority of which was off-prompter and went about 30 minutes longer than scheduled — at the second night of the Democratic National Convention, I felt like I deserved a degree in political science, a cigarette, and a cold shower. Damn. Watch it all above.
President Bill Clinton co-hosted a party with Prince Albert of Monaco and took a photograph with three beautiful young women.
Those women just happened to be porn stars. According to The Atlantic Wire, one woman is Brooklyn Lee, who appeared in the porn flick “Secretaries 4″; another is Tasha Reign, who appeared in “Farm Girls Gone Bad”; and the third woman has been identified as someone named Jennifer Taule. Everyone from Page Six to the UK’s Daily Mail is falling over themselves over “Bubba and the porn babes.”

Leave it to Mindy Kaling to make meeting former President Bill Clinton on “The Today Show” sound adorable. And also leave it to Mindy Kaling to suggest she thought she could be Bill’s type because she’s “a little chunky.” That’s one way to look at it. [Team Coco]
In this clip from “The Today Show,” Ann Curry discusses favorite books with Bill Clinton and Mindy Kaling, which is, yes, kind of a strange pair. You can tell Mindy is a little freaked out by the set up, and Ann is kind of a stone cold beyotch to Mindy, dissing her while she flirts mercilessly with Bill Clinton. Also, Bill Clinton totally picks all these brown nose-y smart dude books while Mindy picks the fun books you’d actually want to read. Still, it’s really cute when Mindy tells Ann that she wishes she’d been able to get a peek at Bill’s list before she gave her own.
Whether he is able to make it work or not, a man brave enough to wear short shorts deserves to be commended. Bill Clinton and Al Gore weren’t afraid to show off their presidential packages back in the day. I’m not mad at them for it either. Click on through to see some famous men wearing very short shorts, some successfully, some tragically. And after the jump, men in meggings! Keep reading »
I’m kind of obsessed with this embarrassing photo of Bill Clinton and Al Gore from the ’90s. I happen to think the former president was, is, and always will be a stone cold fox. I refuse to be ashamed! Nothing is sexier than a man with brains, clout, and a history of infidelity. Am I right, ladies? Oh … is that Al Gore’s …. nevermind. [Buzzfeed]
“Actually, they contacted me once about ['Dancing with the Stars']. And I told them I didn’t have the time to train for it. You know you actually go out there and train — you really work at it. Just last night Hillary said to me, ‘You know, when I’m not Secretary of State anymore, we should go take dancing lessons.’ So we’ll start with the tango.”
—Bill Clinton explains on “The Rachael Ray Show” that he was approached to do “Dancing with the Stars,” but turned it down because of the time commitment. Man, oh man, would I love to be a fly on the wall when Bill and Hillary take their tango lesson. I am now imaging Bill with a rose in his mouth. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
“If I could pick one person to dance with, it would be Bill Clinton or Bradley Cooper. I think Mr. Clinton has a charm about him. He’s very charming and I think he can talk his way into anything.”
—Cheryl Burke of “Dancing with the Stars” tells Huffington Post about her dream partner for the show. I certainly hope Slick Willy is listening, because watching him do the tango in a sequined suit would be amazing. In this interview, Cheryl also revealed that, with the exception of Drew Lachey and Ian Ziering, she’s always had to Google her dance partners on the show to find out who the heck they are. Ouch.

When I was a kid, I begged my parents for months to get me a “Mothers The Pony.” They’d go to toy store after toy store, and no one would have any idea what they were talking about because I’d gotten the name wrong—I, of course, meant that I wanted a My Little Pony. Apparently, Bill Clinton knows more about the pastel ponies than I did. Over the weekend, Peter Sagal interviewed Bill on NPR. After asking some fun questions like, “What is more fun—being president or former president?” and “Did Hilary have to give you any lessons in standing to the side and gazing adoringly?,” Peter got to the segment of his show called “Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me,” where he asks people questions about a topic they really shouldn’t know all that much about. The category he decided to give Bill: My Little Pony. Keep reading »
