Dating Is So Hard


Check out this amazing clip from Found Footage Fest, a ridiculously awesome collection of videos that two dudes have been collecting from yard sales and thrift stores since 1991. In this clip, two Christian cuties, who just got back from some religious camp, talk about how gross dating is. But one of the girls nearly strays from the path when a horny hunk calls her up. Fear not, the light of God shines bright and the girl puts the dude in his place, screeching something unintelligible about his biceps and hanging up dramatically. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

When Grocery Shopping Turns Into A Musical


I rarely go grocery shopping because (a) I’m addicted to delivery and (b) it’s kinda boring. But if a trip to the produce aisle turned into a musical, like in this amazing set-up in a Queens grocery store by Improv Everywhere, I’d be all into it. Check it out. I really wish there were more breaking into song and dance in real life. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Think Twice Before Walking Around Naked In Your Own House


If you thought all that Balloon Boy coverage was ridiculous, you might roll your eyes at this major story Fox News is covering. However, Virgina resident Eric Williamson actually needs the exposure (uh, heh) because here is a man who has clearly been wronged. Every day at 5:30 a.m., Mr. Williamson wakes up and makes his way downstairs to make a pot of coffee and he does so nude. Because even though it may sound out-of-this-world crazy to some people, many folks actually kind of enjoy the fact that they can walk around in their own houses minding their business and stuff while they’re naked. So anyway … Keep reading »

If Holly Montag Has A Drinking Problem, Then So Do I!


On last night’s episode of “The Hills” there was a totally laughable subplot involving Speidi staging an intervention for Heidi‘s younger older sister, Holly. Holly, you see, had a couple of shots at a party, spent a few minutes talking to Brent Bolthouse about art (oh noes!), and then did the robot. These three things, apparently, are evidence of rampant alcoholism. Somebody get Ken Seeley on the phone! But seriously, far more problematic, in my opinion? Spencer‘s cowboy hat. Also, maybe Speidi’s time would have been better used counseling his sister Stephanie, who was busted for a DUI last weekend. Keep reading »

The GThrust Confuses Me


What the GThrust promises sounds enticing — “a G-rush!” — but I don’t get what it is or how it works, even after Hilary explained it to me and two people in underwear fake humped for 5 minutes and 28 seconds. Can one of you figure it out? [Copyranter] Keep reading »

90 Percent of Afghan Women Are Victims of Abuse


Pop in your mouth guard before you read this post, if you’re a tooth grinder. The good news first: According to the Washington Post, more women’s shelters have been opening in Afghanistan since 2001, when the Taliban was officially overthrown. A ministry of women’s affairs is now supposedly overseeing women’s constitutionally guaranteed protection against abuse. But still, about 90 percent of Afghan women are abused. Several women and children, hiding from domestic violence at home, were recently interviewed by CNN at the Women for Afghan Women shelter. One woman escaped with her two children to the shelter, after years of living with her wrists and ankles chained and her hair tied to a wall when she wasn’t doing housework. Another woman showed the stitches in a slash on her neck—stab wounds that she endured, apparently, for not getting pregnant. A child told her own story about being raped at the age of five; she fears that her rapist will kill her when he is released from prison in three years. Keep reading »

Documentary “Starsuckers” Shows It’s Amazingly Easy To Plant Bogus Celebrity Stories In Newspapers


I love a good documentary and this one, “Starsuckers,” looks especially stellar. It looks at our culture’s growing obsession with celebrity—how newspapers and stations have drifted towards celebrity journalism and how fame is sold to us like a commodity. The part of the film I’m most excited for? Director Chris Atkins wanted to test how well tabloid journalists fact-check the stories called in to or emailed to their tip lines. So, his team concocted some totally bogus stories—like that Avril Lavigne fell asleep on a couch at Bungalow 8, that Amy Winehouse blew a fuse during a party and electrocuted herself turning it back on, and that Guy Ritchie got a black eye juggling silverware at a restaurant. They sent these stories to major newspapers, and a huge percentage of them actually ran. The filmmakers turned down payments but could have banked about $1,200 for their efforts. This flick opens in the U.K. on Oct. 30. As of yet, there are no plans for it to travel stateside, but here’s hoping. [Guardian, Starsuckers] Keep reading »

Drugs, Alcohol, Celebrities And Television Can Be A Deadly Combination



Jet lag? I think not. In this 2007 interview to promote “ER” in Australia, John Stamos was clearly wasted out of his mind. In fact, the first word out of his mouth was “vodka.” He followed it up by reading the host’s lines off the teleprompter and making crude gestures. Two years later, John is finally admitting that he was in fact on sleeping pills and also just plain ol’ “plastered” in this clip. Duh. Well, at least he’s not a real doctor. [Celebitchy]

After the jump, some more of our favorite under-the-influence television appearances. Whether the stars admit it or not. Keep reading »

These 5 Women Were Given HIV By The Same Man


Today’s episode of “Oprah” was both upsetting and inspiring. The five women in the clip above all contracted HIV from the same man — their boyfriend, Philippe Padieu, who was secretly wooing (and sleeping with) all of them (and then some!) at the same time. He knew he had HIV, yet didn’t tell any of them. Little did he know what they would do when they found out. The women banded together to warn others being seduced by Padieu’s charms and then went to the police. He was eventually sentenced to 45 years in prison. Kick. Ass. [Oprah] Keep reading »
