Singer Robin Thicke was just like thousands of tourists who were stranded in Cabo San Lucas as a result of the devastating effects of Hurricane Odile.

Miley Cyrus In Trouble For Getting Spanked Onstage With The Mexican Flag

Oh Miley, just stop.  The pop princess is in trouble with the Mexican government after she got spanked onstage with a Mexican flag while twerking in a comically large prosthetic butt. (Which, in and of itself, is UGHHH.) The incident occurred in Monterray, Mexico on Tuesday night and officials are investigating possible desecration of the…

Brace Yourselves, “Mexico Shore” Is About To Become A Thing

Whether you like them or not, Snooki, The Situation and company will long be missed. The "Jersey Shore" cast created a legacy durable enough that other reality TV wannabes are happy to carry on their traditions in their absence.

Batshit Crazy Man Locked His Girlfriend’s Jeans Shut With Padlock So She Couldn’t Cheat

When the cat's away, the mouse will play. Unless you padlock the mouse's pants shut so she can't cheat on you. Or go to the bathroom. Police in the Mexican state of Veracruz removed a padlock from a 25-year-old woman's blue jeans after she came to them in "excruciating pain" from not being able to…

Mexican Town Bans Slutty, Slutty Miniskirts & Gay, Gay Cross-Dressing

Because no man in the history of the world has ever been able to control his rape-alicious sexual urges, a Mexican town has banned women from wearing slutty, slutty miniskirts. And they've also banned crossdressing. Because, you know, gays.

Pregnant Mexican Girl Is Older Than Previously Thought, Outfitted With Birth Control From Doctors

Recently it was reported that a nine-year-old girl had given birth in Mexico. Now her parents are claiming she is 12- or 13-years-old, which is still horrific, and that she was impregnated by her 44-year-old stepfather, not a 17-year-old neighbor as originally reported. But perhaps what's most offensive about this story is that doctors at…

Mexican Airline Stewardesses In Sexy Calendar Get Cover Of Playboy Mexico

In December, I wrote about stewardesses for Mexicana Airlines who funded a sexy calendar of themselves in order to raise money for the tanking airline. The sexy calenders sold for $12 a pop and enjoyed multiple printings. Now the flight attendants are appearing on the cover of Playboy Mexico in getups that leave little to…

Mexican Airline Stewardesses Pose In Calendar To Save Bankrupt Airline

Enough with the sexy calendars already! After Mexicana Airlines filed for bankruptcy this summer, air hostesses photographed themselves in a 2011 "sexy stewardesses" calendar to save their airline. They paid $8,000 out of their own pockets to create the $12 calendar, which is on its second printing. Last time I checked, keeping an airline afloat…

Today’s Lady News: M.A.C. Makeup Cancels Controversial Juarez Line

This is crazy: After our post about a Juarez, Mexico-inspired makeup line created by the designers Rodarte for M.A.C. blew up, the company has canceled the Rodarte line entirely.

MAC Planning Name Change For “Juarez”-Inspired Products

Dang, when people complain, MAC really does listen. Last week, Jessica told you about the makeup brand's collaboration with designers Rodarte, which was inspired by the culture and colors of Mexico. Two nail polish shades were named "Juarez" and "Factory," which we deemed insensitive and offensive, because the town is notorious for the number of…

MAC/Rodarte Responds: They Will Donate A Portion of Proceeds To Crime Victims In The City

We spoke; MAC and Rodarte listened. After my post yesterday about the MAC/Rodarte makeup collaboration which I think tastelessly names new nail polishes "Juarez" and "Factory," MAC has released a statement to NYMag.com's fashion blog, The Cut:…

MAC/Rodarte Makeup Collaboration Names Nail Polish After Impoverished, Murdered Women

My favorite makeup brand, MAC, has teamed up with Rodarte designers for a September 2010 collaboration based on their fall collection— but it's gone horribly wrong. Drawing inspiration from the colors and culture of Mexico, MAC/Rodarte features a pink powder blush called Quinceanera, a sheer white lipstick called Ghost Town, and other items. That's fine…

Weather report from my Blogging HQ in New Jersey: It's 23 degrees outside but feels like six and 40-mph wind gusts are whipping around. Lovely! A tropical vacation would be sweet right about now.

Mexico City And Other Places Around The World Where Same-Sex Couples Can Get Hitched

On Monday, Mexico City's legislature voted 39 to 20 in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage and adoption. So happy holidays, everyone, there's now another place gay couples can go to tie the knot. [CNN] Honestly, the whole debate over this in the U.S. is almost funny to me. New York and California say no—but Iowa…

Picture the following scenario: it's past midnight, and you're ready to call it a night. Your options for getting home: take public transportation and put yourself at risk in the deserted subway, or hail a cab.
