Once you know the basics of prancercise, you can move on to the more advanced versions of the fitness exercise. Joanna Rohrback’s next level of being “induced by elation” is “romancercise,” a prance you can romance to. Who better than to provide the soundtrack for prance seduction than John Mayer? No one. Behold the official music video for “Paper Doll.”
I think YouTube user TypoQueen said it best: “Pretty sure John Mayer just won the internet.” Indeed he did. Only one more question: Right before the video begins, Rohrback warns that if you’re pregnant or nursing, you should consult a doctor before romancercising, but if you’re not, you should consult Jarrad. Who’s Jarrad Rohrback? Is it her much younger husband? Or is this her way of trying to set her son up with single ladies? I’ve included a picture of the mysterious Jarrad after the jump. If you have any information about him, or theories about his identity, please feel free to share in the comments. I WILL get to the bottom of this. [YouTube] Keep reading »
After her total fail of a response at the Miss USA pageant when asked about the gender wage gap, Miss Utah Marissa Powell tried to redeem herself with a more streamlined answer on “The Today Show.” Check out her interview with Miss America Erin Brady and see what you think!
It’s not exactly a secret that CNN needs some help covering violence against women issues correctly. Remember when the Steubenville gang rape verdict was handed out and CNN was sooo worried about the poor young men whose lives had been ruined?
Well, looks like they still need some help. In a clip where hosts and reporters discuss the images that surfaced of Nigella Lawson being choked by her husband Charles Saatchi, the celebrity chef is referred to as looking both “weak” and “subservient.”
I can understand how CNN’s angle was trying to be, at least a little bit, ‘wow, what a shock that this wealthy celebrity couple might have abuse in their relationship!’ But the reporters’ are scrutinizing Lawson following the incident, rather than the guy who reportedly choked his wife four different times in front of shocked restaurant patrons.

In middle school, I had a teacher who was obsessed with aliens and used all of our class time to convince us that they existed. I was 12 and had to start sleeping on the floor of my parents’ bedroom because I was convinced I would be abducted. My parents made me drop the class so I could sleep in my bedroom again. And this man later went on to run for city council and win.
I thought my teacher/ city councilman was weird. Now I know he wasn’t so crazy. Meet Simon Parkes, a Labour Councillor in the UK (he represents constituents on a city level) who knows all there is to know about aliens because he is one. He also works as a driving instructor in his spare time. Aliens really are everywhere.
In this hour-long interview (a shout out to the interviewer who manages to stay extremely neutral), Parkes also goes into Hubbard-esque detail about soul agreements with aliens, what happens during an “abduction,” the different alien races, (little greys, reptiles, humanoids, etc.). Some of the the 53-year-old’s more interesting claims include that he’s fathered ten children, all twins, three of which are named Zarka, Zarouf, and Ree-Karl, with an alien woman he calls The Lion Queen. And this wasn’t just a one-night stand. Parkes sees the Lion Queen about four times a year for sex and this is causing issues with his human wife and three human children, obvs. Keep reading »
New thing to be afraid of: SNAKES KNOW HOW TO OPEN DOORS NOW. We’re not sure if this is a python or a boa constrictor, but we all agree we are having nightmares tonight. And going to the bathroom in pairs all afternoon. Carrying axes.
After the jump, watch Amelia’s not-at-all-over-the-top reaction on Vine to the news that snakes are taking over. Keep reading »
All Kardashian-West hell broke loose this past weekend, what with Yeezus leaking on Friday and baby Kimye joining the klub the next morning. Not to be overshadowed by something so silly as his own child (come on, we know Kanye better than that), Ye’s “American Psycho”-inspired (heavily inspired) promotional clip, starring Scott Disick, hit the web this morning. The verdict? I was expecting Scott to channel a bit more of Patrick Bateman’s trademark … let’s say, finesse? The short video is entertaining, to be sure, but Disick does not have a future in acting, be it as Bateman or otherwise. KIND OF disappointed, Scott, I thought this role was made for you! [Us Weekly]
What better way to celebrate the beginning of Full Figured Fashion Week (and cleanse your palette after Sunday night’s Miss USA pageant ridiculousness) than with a documentary about plus-size beauty queens? “There She Is” stars two friends, Allison and Jenny, who love everything about beauty pageants: the makeup, the hair, the costumes, the glitter.
But unlike the women who compete in Miss USA and Miss America pageants, Allison and Jenny are both a size 22. Keep reading »
I fell off the “True Blood” bandwagon midway through the last season, when the whole Lilith and PTSD plot lines became seemingly more important than showing Alexander Skarsgard naked as often as possible. Last night, I made myself watch the season premiere, and while I was drawn in by Bill Compton’s super vamp powers (will he be less annoying now?!), I still think I am going to limit my “recaps” to showing you just the NSFW moments.
So, with that in mind, watch as sexy Alcide (Joe Manganiello) finds himself celebrating his new role as wolf pack leader with not one but two naked ladies. Nice start to the season, HBO. Props.
Sometimes things just come together in a totally simpatico way. Take, for instance, this new street style video series called “Nailin’ It” that my friend Patrick worked on. Despite NYC being a city of, like, eight million people, who do Patrick and show host Ross Erin pick to appear in their segment on New York style and fashion? None other than our own Simcha “Miss Pop” Whitehill! Amelia and I spotted her in this little vid, sporting her trademark quiff, looking cool as hell. We love this video not just because of the amazing coincidence of our nail art guru Simcha randomly appearing in a video called “Nailin’ It” (I mean, seriously), but because it shows that amazing fashion comes in so many shapes and styles.

It’s no big secret that the Miss USA Pageant isn’t exactly renowned for the intelligence of the contestants, but honestly there should be a level of acceptable coherence in the question and answer section. Miss Utah Marisa Powell provided the worst answer by far. When asked about the continuing disparity between the amount men and women are paid, she fumbled for a while, then said words in an order that make almost no sense, all while managing to completely evade the question.
Question from judge Nene Leakes, the reality TV star: “A recent report shows that in 40 percent of American families with children women are the primary earners yet they continue to earn less than men. What does this say about society?”
Miss Utah: “I think we can relate this back to education and how we are continuing to try to strive to … [very long pause] … figure out how to create jobs right now. That is the biggest problem and, I think, especially the men are seen as the leaders of this, so we need to … [shorter pause] … create education better so we can solve this problem.”
