Another day, another high-ranking New York politician embroiled in a scandal. The latest is a House of Representatives dude, Eric Massa. On Monday, he resigned from Congress saying that he had cancer. Turns out, he resigned to avoid an investigation by the House ethics committee. Apparently, three of his staffers complained that Massa had groped them. Others said Massa used lewd language with them, and rumor had it that he’d hit on several young male staffers and interns. When these reports surfaced in the press, Massa claimed he was being set up by the House Democrats because he opposed the health care bill. But on Tuesday, he spoke to Glenn Beck and said he’d resigned for “getting too familiar with my staff.” Then he joked, “Not only did I grope [a staffer], I tickled him until he couldn’t breathe.” Keep reading »

For the first time since Thanksgiving, Tiger Woods stepped out in public and gave what we thought was an apology speech that far out-sincered (it’s a word!) many mea culpas past. But what are the women he’s been publicly linked to up to these days? After the jump, find out which of Tiger’s alleged mistresses are totally embarrassed about having had Tiger’s paws on them, and who is benefiting from being an official scandalista. Keep reading »
It’s 2009, bitches, and women are kicking ass and taking names. We’re outpacing men in colleges, running our own companies, and buying our own homes. But there’s one area in which we girls are sorely lacking: sex scandals. Yes, sex scandals. Poor LeAnn Rimes is one of the only high-profile ladies who has been caught cheating and she’s up against infidelity heavyweights like David Letterman, South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, and, of course, Tiger Woods. Keep reading »
The best part of South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford admitting he’s been having an affair – with tax payer dollars, no less! – with a mysterious woman named “Maria”? The fact that some of the love letters he sent her have been released! It is true poetry, peoples. Ahem…
”You have a level of sophistication that so fitting with your beauty. I could digress and say that you have the ability to give magnificent gentle kisses, or that I love your tan lines or that I love the curve of your hips, the erotic beauty of you holding yourself (or two magnificent parts of yourself) in the faded glow of the night’s light — but hey, that would be going into sexual details…”
Oh please, do continue!
”In the meantime please sleep soundly knowing that despite the best efforts of my head my heart cries out for you, your voice, your body, the touch of your lips, the touch of your finger tips and an even deeper connection to your soul.”
Yowza! That’s, uh, sexy stuff. But how does it compare to the words exchanged during other famous sex scandals? Let’s take a walk down memory lane… Keep reading »
Last Friday, John Edwards finally fessed up to having an affair with Rielle Hunter in 2006, after reports surfaced in the National Enquirer. Over the last two decades, political sex scandals have become as common as nipple slips in Hollywood. Initially, we were fascinated and titillated by the little glimpses the media gave us into the private lives of our public figures. But after the media began inundating us with more scandals than we could stand, we stopped caring, we stopped judging, and we became utterly numb to the bad behaviors of these political leaders. In light of Edwards’ confession, do we even care anymore? Do we care that while his wife was battling cancer, he was out schtupping his campaign’s videographer? Or do we expect politicians like Edwards to behave badly?
Did you hear? There’s an Angelina Jolie Sex Scandal brewing! In Touch dug up a bunch of “racy” photos from when she was 16 in which she models swimwear. Now, look, I get it that this kind of modeling, when you’re underage can be a little grody, but I’m pretty sure Angie lived in Europe back then and they’re way more tolerant of pre-teen sexuality there. Also, all of the bathing suits she sports are pretty heinous and not especially revealing, at least compared to today’s standards. Above is the video done during the shoot, in which Angelina’s pouty poses were apparently inspired by Marky Mark and The Funky Bunch’s “Good Vibrations”! [DListed] Keep reading »
