One of our favorite style bloggers, Jill at Trend de la Creme, uncovers the horrifying news that Shawn Southern, otherwise known as “Loud Mouth Tool” on the first season of VH1′s “Tool Academy,” has his own fashion line. For those of us demented enough to watch “Tool Academy” (me!), you may remember the North Carolina native as the shouty, punchy big guy who had multiple girlfriends. Also, he has a tattoo over his wang that reads: “Kung Fu Hero.” (No, I did not make that up.) In any case, now he has a clothing line of sorts. Jill deems it a “Kung Fu Zero.” The garments include skull underpants, suicidal robots, and other random, stupid crap. Read Jill’s hilarious take here. Keep reading »

Ah, “Tool Academy.” Quite possibly one of the most awesomely awful shows on TV — and I mean that in a good way. Dedicated to seeking out guys who act like tools and sending them off to Tool Academy for an inner and outer makeover with their fed-up girlfriends, VH1′s reality dude show is one of my favorites. Why? I do not know. I guess there’s something deeply appealing about seeing total jerks being turned into better men.

And this season actually looks more obnoxious. Check out the latest batch of tools here. Premieres August 31. Keep reading »
This past week on VH1′s “Tool Academy,” the dudes were taught humility by admitting their deepest fears about their relationships and prancing around in tutus. However, their girlfriends have been trying to put them in their place since the season began by withholding sex. Granted, none of those bros deserve a piece of their girl’s promise land, since they’ve been complete bastards, but if these ladies are willing to stand by their jerky boyfriends while they man up, what’s the point of not having sexy times?! It simply turns sex into a control issue. However, these “Tool”-ettes are not alone in their belief that keeping their legs closed for business will bring about a positive change in their love life. The question is, does denying what you both need — sex — get you what you want — a good relationship?
