“Sesame Street” Loses Icon To Breast Cancer


Over the weekend, Alaina Reed Hall, better known as “Olivia” On “Sesame Street,” lost her long battle with breast cancer. Tear! Our condolences to her family, she will always live in the hearts of all the children she entertained (like this Frisky gal).

This loss is especially frustrating considering some government task force just advised women that they shouldn’t get mammograms to screen for cancer until they’re in their ’50s! If my mother had been given that advice 10 years ago, she wouldn’t still be here. Sadly, my mom was diagnosed when she was 45, and she wasn’t the only one in her support group under 50. So, please, get your advice off my body, bureaucrats! [WhatWouldThembiDo.com]

How Bostoners Celebrate The Holidays


Say hello to Santa Speedo Run 2009, a charity event in Boston. Hot men and random women dress up as Santa in a Speedo and run half-naked through the streets. That’s a lot of jingle bells jingling. [Uncoached] Keep reading »

Christina Ricci Has Sartorial Schizophrenia


Donna Karan heard that viral videos are really popular with the kids these days, so she hired Sting’s son to make a two-minute movie starring Christina Ricci and a handbag, then released it to the wilds of the internet. Er, sorry Donna, we’re not sure this has what it takes to be the next Susan Boyle-level web hit, but hey, it’s Friday. We’ll go ahead and post it anyway. [WSJ] Keep reading »

What’s So Darn Funny About A Brutal Murder?


We’ve all had a giggle fit at an inappropriate moment before, but sometimes it’s just dead wrong. I’m totally miffed by this video of a news anchor seriously losing her s**t as she reports on the case of Stephen Grant, a 37-year-old Michigan man who was convicted of murdering his wife, Tara Lynn Grant. But this is not your run-of-the-mill murder case. It’s completely psychotic. Grant dismembered his wife, chopped up her body, and deposited her bits and pieces in a nearby park. After maintaining his innocence for a while, Grant went on the lam and was finally captured with a Charles Manson-esque look in the eyes, in Michigan’s snowy Wilderness State Park. He was rushed to a hospital with frostbite and hypothermia, but once he was released, he made a graphic confession and was arraigned on Tuesday. OK, I am totally creeped out. Can anyone tell me why this news anchor can’t stop laughing? What am I missing? Did someone fart? I’m sure Tara Lynn Grant’s family loved this clip. [Fox News, Funny or Die] Keep reading »

WTF? Teacher Cuts Off First-Grader’s Braid In “Frustration”

A Milwaukee teacher says she was frustrated when she cut off 7-year-old Lamya Cammon’s braid. The first-grader had been playing with her beaded hair, and the teacher called her to the front of the class, cut off one of Lamya’s braids, and threw it in the garbage. Lamya says she went back to her seat and cried while the rest of the class laughed. She told her mother about the incident, and the mother confronted the teacher, who apologized and said she was frustrated at the time. The teacher was punished with a disorderly conduct fine of $175, yet she’s still teaching the same first grade class. Lamya has been moved to another class at the Congress Elementary School.

A Drunk 4-Year-Old Steals Holiday Presents. And They Say We’re Headed To Hell In A Handbasket?


Best line from a newscast ever: “April Wright is not sure how her 4-year-old son managed to escape her house, open a beer, and steal her neighbor’s presents from under the tree.” The boy was found wandering around his neighborhood in a dress, finishing his 20-ounce. Sheesh. Keep reading »

“Real Housewife” Lynne Curtin Gets Even More Loopy

Lynne Curtin is my second favorite cast member on “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” probably because she doesn’t take herself or anything seriously. Last season, I kept wondering what made her so loopy and lackadaisical. This season, the mystery was narrowed down a bit. When she appeared on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live,” programming executive and host Andy Cohen asked her if rumors of her mushroom habit were true. Lynne said they weren’t. But on last night’s episode, she took pain medications after having a face lift and seemed her normal self. (You can see all the weird moments in the video above.) The other cast members blamed her crazy, airhead moments on the meds, yet she was enamored by the possibility of wild mushrooms growing in the Florida Everglades. That seemed strange to me, and I suspect she’s on some feel-good stuff regularly, even when she hasn’t had surgery. What are your thoughts on Lynne’s far-out demeanor? Keep reading »

Guidette Makeovah: It’s All About Thuh Bronzah


Hey guidette wannabes! The first step to looking like “Jersey Shore” trash is to get the makeup down right, mkay? Check out Joanie’s makeup tutorial, which gives you the official lowdown on how to get the look. In a nutshell—”It’s all about the bronzah. You want a nice healthy glow of orange.” Then comes contouring, where you add a darker shade to your cheeks to look skinny, and lastly, a light foundation as lipstick. Now all you need is a neon tank top and 18 shots of Jager. [YouTube] Keep reading »

Get Rihanna’s “Military Couture” Red Lips

We weren’t so sure what to think about the “couture military” style Rihanna spoke of while filming the video for her song “Hard.” But now that we’re seeing the outfits in context, they’re not nearly as scary or horrible as we had first concluded. Rihanna can keep this style to herself, however, because we certainly won’t be putting on anything remotely similar, well, except for her gorgeous orange-y red lipstick. The shade resembles Nars’ Heat Wave and Revlon’s Hot Coral, and it will look just as good when worn with something other than an army green jacket, a bustier with electrical tape-covered nipples, and a pair of practically nonexistent cut-offs.
