But the MarieClaire.com article by Maura Kelly titled "Should 'Fatties' Get A Room?" -- which we told you about yesterday -- was above-and-beyond disgusting.

Joanna Coles Shows Her Haul Vlogger Love

Just as inexplicable as the recent obsession over Silly Bandz is the love for YouTube haul vlogs. Intrepid young "reporters" spend hours creating their own videos, where they simply show off their latest purchases, detailing the reasons they love or hate the new products, thanks to the magic of web cams and the vast world…

Marie Claire Takes The Canadian Tuxedo To The Beach

As though the Canadian Tuxedo weren't already a terrible choice, Marie Claire has decided that the trampy bikini version is fashionable.

Jessica Simpson With No Makeup? Yeah, Right!

Marie Claire magazine claims this lovely cover photo of Jessica Simpson features the starlet with no makeup (!) and no retouching at all (!), and while I think this look is so, so much more flattering for J-Simp than her usual tranny-face, I don't buy for a second she's sans fards. Even if you don't…

Yes, Chanel No. 5 May Attract Men … With Oedipal Complexes

Scent is certainly a powerful element in generating attraction from the opposite sex, but when a new study came out this week pointing to Chanel No. 5 as the perfume most likely to seduce a man, we were doubtful. The idea that you could bag a guy with a specific perfume seems far-fetched a…

Are You A “Stiletto Stoner”?

Why does it seem like the older I get the more hectic and crazy my life becomes? Back in college, things were so simple. Wake up early-ish, go to class, come back to the dorm, and have a few bongs and burritos with friends to unwind. On the days I went to work, I never…
