Screwed-Up Priorities: Woman Gets Glam For Weekly Mug Shot

Meet Kaylin Ransom, a 22-year-old resident of Ocala, FL. She spends her weeks doing hair and her weekends in Lake County Jail. The aptly named Ransom is under a plea deal for felony battery and child abuse, and whenever she checks into her “weekend home” she has to take a new mug shot. So following in the footsteps of Naomi Campbell, who famously wore haute couture while performing her community service with the New York Department of Sanitation, Ransom gets glam, in her own way, before taking her mug shots. She’s known for her lace-front wigs, extensions, false eyelashes, and photo shoot-worthy makeup. Now, if Ransom had lesser charges, I’d say this was a unique way of giving the system the finger, but charges of battery and child abuse warrant a lot more repentance, in my book, than getting fly for a weekly jail stay.

Wendy Williams Deep Fries Her Wig

I like Wendy Williams because the woman has no shame. On a recent episode, visited by The Fry Guy, Williams decided it would be a great idea to fry one of her wigs. The chef dips the whole lot of it in batter and then plops it into the fryer. The result is not a pretty sight; suffice to say, I won’t be serving fried wig at this year’s Thanksgiving dinner. If you ate it, you’d have the world’s biggest hairball, and nobody wants that. [ONTD] Keep reading »

Kathy Ireland Would Like You To Buy Her Wigs

Having never tried on one of model-turned-entrepreneur Kathy Ireland‘s wigs from her new wig line, Kathy Ireland Wigs, I can’t vouch for their quality, style, or whatever else one uses to judge wigs, but I can say that they might have gone the extra mile to come up with some better Kathy Ireland-in-a-wig photos, or at least hired someone who knows how to get a wig on a head that doesn’t make it look like your cranium is being attacked by a wayward armadillo. This style is called “Angel,” and it retails for $114. Check out more Kathy Ireland-in-a-wig styles after the jump. Keep reading »

Woman Hits The Jackpot Photographing Cats In Wigs

After watching this news report featuring Jill Johnson, a North Texas woman who got a book deal — see: Glamourpuss: The Enchanting World of Cats in Wigs — after she, a serious photojournalist, started photographing cats, yes, cats, in wigs, yes, wigs, I got really angry at myself. Why didn’t I pursue that idea of photographing cats in wigs back in 2005, when I had it? Now I’m the one with no book deal and no photos of cats in wigs. This is pretty embarrassing. For me. And the cats. I guess I can console myself with the fact that all these cats with wigs smashed on their heads look like they are not fans of Jill Johnson or her photography. Or wigs.

New Disturbing Trend: Baby Wigs

SandraRose.com featured this sad story of a mother (her name was kept anonymous, probably better for her safety) who got really sick and tired of her baby being so … bald. “It’s never too early for my baby to start looking glamorous like Beyonce!” said the mother. What did she decide to do about the problem? She gave her kid some long, luxurious locks, natch. Don’t worry, she didn’t get her a weave, which could be painful and dangerous for baby’s head. She got her a less dangerous, yet still fiercely fashionable, lace front wig. “I wouldn’t be caught dead without my lace front and my baby won’t either,” this doting mother explained. OK. I’m not laughing anymore. Does this scare the crap out of anyone else? I don’t know whether to cry or call Child Protective Services. What if this trend catches on? Then what’s next? Thong diapers?
