Going to your 10-year college reunion is fun. It’s even better if you happen to look hot and have gone on to a fun and fulfilling career.

This weekend, two very famous faces were on hand for the Yale Class of 2001 reunion—Jessica Simpson and Jessica Alba. Both were there with their respective dudes. JessSimp attended with her fiance, Eric Johnson, who played football at the school. Meanwhile, JessAlba attended with her hubby, Cash Warren.

Yale University has suspended the Delta Kappa Epsilon frat from campus for five years for an October 13th incident (captured on audio) when pledges marched outside freshman dorms chanting “No means yes! Yes means anal!” According to an email sent by the Yale College Dean on Tuesday afternoon, the school found that the actions of DKE, who are not an official campus organization, “threatened and intimidated others,” which violates the school’s Undergraduate Regulations. Individual frat members have been punished, although Yale wouldn’t disclose how because of confidentiality agreements. Keep reading »
This NSFWish (use headphones) video shows Yale University fraternity pledges marching through campus shouting, “No means yes! Yes means anal! No means yes, yes means anal!” According to Tracy Clark-Flory at Salon.com, they also shouted, “My name is Jack, I’m a necrophiliac, I f**k dead women,” though that wasn’t captured on audio. The president of the DKE fraternity, Jordan Fourney, released an apology, calling the anal rape chants “a serious lapse in judgment by the fraternity and in very poor taste.”

Stars, they’re just like us: They meet some of their best friends over the shoe sale at Barneys. Meet Cassius Marcellus Cornelius Clay. He’s the blue-blooded, preppy-to-the-max new buddy of Kanye West. The two apparently met when Kanye fell head-over-heels for a fancy pair of Italian shoes Clay was wearing, while on a fashion spree at Barneys. The two bonded over their love of fancy man items, exchanged numbers and embarked on an epic bromance. The 20-year-old Yale sophomore, who goes by Cassius Clay (and yes, he shares a name with Mohammed Ali), has since dropped out of school to follow West around, offering sage wisdom and fashion advice.
And sure we smell a hoax, but we so badly want to be believe this is real. Eat your heart out, Amber Rose! [IvyGate] Keep reading »
We’re obsessed with unintentionally hilarious sorority girls here at The Frisky and the Pi Phi sorority at Yale soooo just became our new besties. If you remember, a few weeks ago we posted about Cornell’s Pi Phi sorority and their wackadoodle “fashion guidelines.” But Yale’s chipper chapter of Pi Phi ladies appear to be significantly less evil: Just watch their Pi Phi 2010 Fall Rush Video, which is loosely modeled on “Gossip Girl” and is inexplicably compelling. Seriously, it is worth watching for the entire seven-and-a-half minutes. [Guest Of A Guest] Keep reading »
More sad news today: Connecticut police have arrested a Yale lab technician, 24-year-old Raymond Clark III, for grad student Annie Le‘s death. Clark, who mostly did janitorial work in the same building as Le, was arrested this morning at a motel. Police said Clark failed a lie detector test and had scratch marks on his body. Keep reading »
Raymond Clark III, a 24-year-old lab technician, was taken into custody for DNA samples last night (and subsequently released) as a suspect in Yale grad student Annie Le‘s death. Le, who had planned to marry Columbia grad student Jonathan Widawsky last weekend, went missing on Sept. 8th. She was seen on video entering, but never exiting, her lab and her body was later found stuffed inside one of its walls. Clark, who lives with his fianceé, Jennifer Hromadka, works the same laboratory as Le did, allegedly failed a lie detector test and had scratches on his body. Police said they will either arrest Clark or rule him out as a suspect this week. Meanwhile, a medical examiner pronounced Le’s cause of death was “traumatic asphyxia.” [NY Daily News, Fox News]
A high school in England banned female students from wearing their uniform skirts because girls were showing too much leg in them. The assistant headmaster of Bingley Grammar School told the Daily Mail it tweaked the dress code after some girls apparently rolled their skirts up higher and parents complained because “they felt their daughters were increasingly vulnerable.” All but the eldest girls in school are now required to wear black pants with their uniform instead. [UK Daily Mail]
—How typical, punishing the girls for their sexuality. What about making all the male students wear blinders instead? Keep reading »
New Haven police have discovered a body stuffed inside a wall at a lab in the School of Medicine where missing Yale student Annie Le was last seen alive on Tuesday. Although police are still waiting to identify the body, it’s fair to assume it’s probably Le. This weekend, bloody clothes were found stuffed in the ceiling of the lab as well. This horrible story is nothing short of tragic: Le had planned to marry her fiance, Jonathan Widawsky, a grad student at Columbia, this past weekend, and on Friday their families canceled the nuptials. Some had initially wondered if Le was a runaway bride, but all evidence indicated she was really excited to get married. Our thoughts go out to Widawsky and the couple’s families. [New York Times]
UPDATE, 4:30 p.m. on Monday: This is beyond sad. As suspected, the body found in the walls of a Yale School Of Medicine lab belongs to Annie Le. Police are calling the cause of death a homicide. Although the murderer has not been identified, police say Le’s killing was targeted.—[NY Post] Additional reports say the suspect, who police confirm is not a fellow Yale student as previously reported, has flunked lie detector tests.—[NY Daily News] Keep reading »
Annie Le, a 24-year-old Yale grad student about to marry her Columbia University fiancée this weekend, has been missing since Tuesday. Le left behind her purse with her cell phone, credit cards and money, police in New Haven, Connecticut, say. On the day she went missing, Le used her Yale student ID at round 10 a.m. to check into a laboratory where she’s working on her doctorate in pharmacology. Police are checking security cameras to see if Le, who is 4’11″ and 90 lbs, was in the building when it was evacuated at around 1 p.m. during a fire alarm. Here’s hoping Le is just a runaway bride with cold feet and she turns up OK. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
