Lee DeWyze Wins “American Idol” — Is It A Beautiful Day For Him?

As I predicted, Lee DeWyze snagged the “American Idol” title last night. Go me … I mean … go Lee! But I’ll get back to Lee in a minute since there were two hours’ worth of star-studded performances before we heard his good news. Keep reading »

The Pee Facial: There Are No Words

Prepare to be traumatized. Earlier this week on “The Doctors,” a panel of experts discussed the use of—gag—urine in skin care. “Urea,” explains one doctor, “on the skin potentially has some benefits,” before then applying pee-soaked cotton balls to each other’s faces as “urine facials.” There’s a lot we’d go through to get great skin … but putting piss on our faces surely isn’t one of them.

Was It Better To Be A Woman In Jane Austen’s Time?

Sometimes I think it would be so much easier to be a woman in Jane Austen’s time. You know, like having only three dresses to choose from, communicating only by letter, and being told you will be married to your second cousin so you can inherit a big estate. That almost doesn’t seem so bad compared to that which is the modern dating scene. Sure, it may seem terribly anti-feminist (and kind of gross), but just think of all of the headaches you’d be spared. Keep reading »

Huggies Diaper Jeans: The (Possibly Fake) Commercial!


OK, so remember the Huggies limited-edition denim diapers we posted about last week? Turns out there’s a commercial too! It’s so ridiculous — “My diaper is full. Full of chic”?!?! — that I have a hard time believing it’s not a spoof. Or maybe it’s an ad only shown in Europe? They are more lenient about saying words like “poop” on TV across the pond.

Skeletons In Lingerie: Is This Spoof On Victoria’s Secret Funny Or Tasteless?

Sure, it’s hypocritical and fat-phobic of ABC to air the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show starring Heidi Klum’s glorious ta-tas while also demanding “excessive re-edits” on this plus-size lingerie commercial from Lane Bryant. But what do we think of LandlineTV’s spoof on Victoria’s Secret: a faux-sexy commercial starring skeletons in a blond wig and lingerie (a spoof which a gleeful Lane Bryant posted on their Inside Curve blog!)? Is it a biting social commentary on body image standards or a tasteless joke, considering the culture of body-hating and eating disorders not only among models but all women? I personally am in the “biting social commentary” camp, but at least one blogger with an eating disorder, who I follow on Twitter, was vehement that lady-skeletons are not “appropriate.” Tell us what you think in the comments.

This Baby Smokes 40 Cigarettes A Day

Meet Ardi Rizal. He is a smoking baby. He is two. Did I mention that he smokes? He favors a specific brand and throws a temper tantrum if he doesn’t get his 40 cigarettes a day. I’d think I was making this up if it weren’t for this video, starring Ardi, the smoking baby. He’s been smoking since he was 18 months old. His father got him started. The family lives in Sumatra, Indonesia. It says he can blow smoke rings, and I think he does at the end, although you can’t really see it. On account of all the cancer sticks, he is “is too unfit to run with the other children.” His mother says he is “totally addicted.” If she tries to make him stop, “he gets angry and screams and batters his head against the wall.” Officials offered the family a car if they got the baby to stop smoking. The father says, “I don’t see the problem.” What the hell? I don’t see this ending well. [Gawker] Keep reading »

Jesse James Says Child Abuse Led Him To Cheat On Sandra Bullock


Jesse James was on “Nightline” last night and finally offered up a few answers for why he cheated on wife Sandra Bullock, whether he’s a big ol’ racist, and if he went to rehab for sex addiction. For starters, James says he was abused as a child and that much of his persona is a smoke screen to hide the fact that he’s a scared abused kid, whose dad broke his arm when he was 7 years old. Child abuse, he says, also contributed to his infidelity, telling ABC:
“I grew up with a huge amount of shame and fear and abandonment on my shoulders from a very young age and I think, you know, the way my mind rationalized [cheating], ‘Well, you know, I might as well do whatever I can to like run her off cause she is going to find out what I am anyway and leave me anyway … The struggle within myself for the things that I did … to damage marriage and my life and everything else, it’s all me. I’m doing it because, you know, I’ve basically never felt good enough for anyone.”

This Is The Abortion Ad British Pro-Lifers Got So Upset About

Marie Stopes International, a women’s reproductive health care organization in Britain that is similar to America’s Planned Parenthood, ran a commercial on British TV on Monday night that had everyone aflutter. What, pray tell, was the problem? Could it be shocking imagery, like the images of bloody, aborted fetuses which can regularly be seen in public on sidewalks, on college campuses, and outside abortion clinics?

In fact, the commercial shows a couple of melancholy-looking women as the words “Are you late?” flash on screen and a voice-over says, “If you’re pregnant and not sure what to do, Marie Stopes International can help.” Very radical and crazy stuff, I know.

Do you think Marie Stopes International’s ad is more or less effective than an anti-abortion ad like the ones starring Tim Tebow and his mom, Pam Tebow, for the conservative group Focus On The Family, which ran during the 2009 Super Bowl? [Guardian UK] Keep reading »

The “Real Housewives,” Rachel Zoe, And Patti Stanger Dance It Out For Bravo

I always assumed that if you got all of Bravo’s stars—Rachel Zoe, Padma Lakshmi, Kathy Griffin, Andy Cohen, and Real Housewives from assorted cities—together in one room, the world would implode and we’d all find ourselves in a sideways reality. But apparently, it’s not true, as proved in this promo for the network starring all of them dancing together by a rooftop pool. Cute, no? After the jump, some funny behind-the-scenes clips.

Jon Hamm Plays With Himself On “Ellen”


Oh, get your minds out of the gutter! It was a Don Draper Barbie Doll Jon Hamm played with when he stopped by “Ellen” this week. And it wasn’t just any ol’ Don Draper Barbie Doll either; this one was wearing an Ellen thong under his pants. But who can think about dolls — or anything else for that matter — when Jon Hamm is around? And lucky for us, he’s about to be around a lot more. He’s currently filming the fourth season of “Mad Man,” which is set to start airing July 25. That’s two months from today, y’all, not that I’m counting or anything. [via YouTube] Keep reading »
