Oh, look! It’s the trailer for Jennifer Love Hewitt‘s new Lifetime series for which you have all been waiting, “The Client List,” starring J-Love as a prostitute mom who does the “unthinkable.” It’s Christmas! A foreclosure looms! Cybill Shepherd shows up! What would you do? Go be a prostitute, right? Right. “It’s amazing what you’re capable of saying yes to,” Hewitt coos. Don’t. I. Know. It. Also: she’s married. And he has no idea. I hate it when that happens. Apparently, this was all inspired by a true story, but I am thinking they took some liberties.

OK, makers of “Bonetown,” you win: we will draw more attention to your racist, sexist, morally depraved video game by writing about it.
“Bonetown” touts itself as “the world’s first action adventure porno video game,” but it’s more like thoughts from the internet’s most ignorant trolls set to animation. You know, the trolls who think racism and sexism have been “solved” so it’s really hilarious to perpetuate stereotypes about minorities and women.
