Karma’s a bitch.

Last night outside my apartment in New York City, the street was flooded with lights, sirens and a cherry-picker? Yes. ¬†A cherry-picker, along with a host of emergency personnel, surrounded a gaping hole familiar (and clearly marked, for the record) to this stretch of sidewalk.¬†Firefighters kept gawkers at bay and I asked other bystanders, “What the hell happened?” It was explained that somebody had fallen into the aforementioned sidewalk orifice. Come to find out, the man who took the tumble was fleeing after having groped a woman on the street. Keep reading »

Whether you believe in the principle of karma or not, it never hurts to try to be a more magnanimous person. This soapstone karma counter, a millenary method developed in Tibet to remind you to think about the consequences of your actions, helps you see how your quest for goodness stacks up each day. For every good deed you place a light pebble in the center, for not-so-great deeds, a dark one. The next day, you can try to out-good yourself. It’s believed that as your good pebble ratio grows, so will the rewards that come back to you. [$59.95 Novica via Outblush]

Jennifer Aniston’s New BF, Justin Theroux, Forgot To Break Up With His GF First

Remember when Angelina Jolie finally responded to the rumors that she and Brad Pitt had an affair while he was still married to Jennifer Aniston by saying she would never do such a thing to another woman because she saw her dad do it to her mom? That is one of the oldest and best excuses in the book — “That terrible thing happened to me or someone I love and I would never do that terrible thing to someone else!” — and tends to be pretty believable except when it’s not because, really, you never know what you might do when presented with a tempting but amoral conundrum. (Also, whether Brad and Angelina had a physical affair or not, an emotional affair clearly occurred and is that any better? Legalese!) Keep reading »

Rihanna Wants A Karma Baby

“I don’t really plan on the age. It could be a year from now. It could be 10 years from now. Whenever is right. I mean, I have a lot of other stuff to accomplish before I get to kids. Whenever the time is right, I’ll just know. … If I had a girl, she’d probably be really rebellious … she would be like a bundle of karma.”

Rihanna on her motherhood plans in Interview magazine. I’ve been sitting here for a while trying to understand this quote. I can throw around New Age terms with the best of them, but I have not a clue what she’s talking about. Does she mean if she had a girl, she would be afraid it would turn out like her? I think all that red hair dye is seeping into her brain. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »

In London’s West End, a 30-year-old man threw his girlfriend through the window of a Banana Republic store. Instead of killing her, a shard of glass snapped out and stabbed him, killing him. His girlfriend sustained cuts and is expected to make a full recovery. Karma’s a bitch, isn’t it? [Daily Mail]

Bridezilla Headed To The Slammer

Call it karma. Call it what nearly every “Bridezilla” viewer has wished, during one episode or another, would happen. Call it whatever you want. But the news that Karee Gibson Hart, who appeared on WeTV’s “Bridezillas” this summer, was arrested for her outrageous and vile behavior on the show sort of makes me smile. Actually, screw “sort of.” I’m grinning from ear to ear right now. Did you see her episodes? Keep reading »
