How To: Dita Von Teese Lights Up Your Love Life

Von Teese shared with The Telegraph a few of her secrets for looking hot while you’re on your way to getting naked in the bedroom. The key? It’s all in the lighting, ladies. Keep reading »

Royal Mix-Up: Prince Charles Invites Dita Von Teese Over

Who can resist the charms of glamour queen Dita Von Teese? Not even stodgy Prince Charles, which is why he introduced himself to the attractive alabaster stranger at a Cartier event. When the Royal asked Ms. Dita what she did, she replied that she was a “dancer.” When Prince Charles unwittingly asked the dancer to do a number at Prince Harry’s upcoming birthday party in September, he had no idea he’d get more show than he bargained for. After the damage, er booking, was done, an aide informed the culturally clueless Prince Charles about Dita’s contributions to the art of striptease and he was mortified. After all, what would his mummy think?! We think under those suits and floral hats, there’s a side to the Queen that likes to get down — or at least appreciate a woman who can. But we’ll have to wait and see if the real tassel-twirling burlesque show will go on at Buckingham Palace. [Daily Star]

What’s It Like Being A Mom Who Does Burlesque?

Putting on pasties for the first time was fabulous. Putting on pasties for the first time while lactating—well, that was fabulous and messy. But no matter what, I refuse to turn them in!

But once I had a kid, everyone seemed to assume that I would change, that I’d become more, oh, I don’t know, virginal. I always thought that was kind of odd. After all, I had an 8 pound 12 ounce infant pop out of my vag, so there was no longer anything even remotely virginal about me (not like there had been before).

The Daily Hotness: Dita Von Teese

Dita Von Teese is incredibly awesome. The burlesque performer worried us slightly when she went and married Marilyn Manson — he’s an extremely intelligent guy, but dang, is he scary — but now that she’s single and ready to mingle, she’s really been rockin’ the sex appeal. And with her clothes on! Here she is at the Vienna Opera Ball, sporting some serious couture. Divorce from a washed up goth rocker has never looked so good. Photo Courtesy Of AP Keep reading »
