Christina Aguilera Gets The Opposite Of Dirrty On “Project Runway”


Where do starlets go when their career needs a boost? Apparently, “Project Runway.” Lindsay Lohan appeared as a guest judge on the show earlier in the season, and last night Christina Aguilera took her turn. Seeing her on the episode, sporting some serious bangs, reminded me why she’s been the pop star who’s totally fallen off the radar, even though she has the best voice. The girl is too darn nice!

This Is Sick: Balloon Boy Barfs On Live TV


Alright, WTF is going on with this “Balloon Boy” story? For starters, can we stop calling Falcon Heene that, because, remember, he wasn’t actually in the balloon. Secondly, was this a hoax or not? The family appeared on “Larry King” last night and Falcon seemingly called out his parents for faking the whole incident saying, “You guys said we did this for the show ….” Then this morning, the whole family appeared again on “Today” and his dad, Richard, said he was appalled that anyone would even suggest they staged this whole thing for publicity. Meanwhile, poor little Falcon barfed during the interview and Meredith Vieira and his father ignored it and continued on with the interview. Someone take the cameras off these people and put that little boy to bed. Keep reading »

Should Women Be Allowed To Serve On Submarines With Men?

Today on “The View,” the women discussed how the Navy is considering letting women serve on submarines for the first time. Whoopi, Sherri, Joy, and guest co-host Kara DioGuardi got into a heated debate about whether they’d be concerned about a significant other living on a submarine for 90 days in veryclose quarters with members of the opposite sex (lots of brushing up against one another as people pass in the narrow hallways). Is it a question of trust, or does it go beyond that? Keep reading »

Falcon Heene, 6-Year-Old Boy, Trapped In A “Homemade Flying Saucer” Helium Balloon

A “6-year-old boy” named Falcon Heene (allegedly the son of Richard and Mayumi Heene of Ft. Collins, Colorado) climbed into a “helium balloon” shaped like a “homemade flying saucer” in “his parents’ backyard” outside of Denver and floated away when he untethered it from its rope. At least, that’s what the government wants you to think.

But seriously, we hope he’s back on solid ground. Land safely, Falcon!

UPDATE: The balloon has landed and television is saying one of Falcon’s siblings said he fell out of the balloon.
UPDATE: Police are now saying the balloon is empty, meaning Falcon is not inside. Here’s hoping he’s just snickering under the bed.
UPDATE: We’re now hearing the Heene family appeared on the TV show “Wife Swap.” ABC’s web site for “Wife Swap” has a picture of a 5-year-old Falcon on its website. Keep reading »

Man Goes Through Simulated Childbirth To See If He Can Handle The Pain


We’ve all heard the old women-versus-men pain threshold debate. It almost always goes the same way. A man in the middle of a crowded bar raucously boasts that he can withstand more pain than a woman. Any woman! Then, some gal in his vicinity gently puts down her gin and tonic, peers over her glasses and says, “We go through childbirth.” Finally, an Australian TV show host wants to settle this thing once and for all. With the help of a few lovely ladies, he hooked himself up to a machine that simulates contractions. The nurses increased the duration and intensity of the contractions until … surprise! He couldn’t handle it. After only three hours he called it quits. The show ends with the dude saying, “We have nothing, women win. Men don’t.” That’s right, boys! Keep reading »

The Daily Ovulation: The PS22 Chorus Is Gonna Run This Town

What’s that you hear? Yeah, that’s the sound of my uterus giving the PS22 kids a standing ovation for their rendition of Jay-Z’s “Run This Town.” The little lead vocalist is astounding, the rap segment (which the chorus wrote) is awesome, and I just love watching all the sassy little girls in the crowd gettin’ DOWN as they belt out Rihanna’s refrain. To find out more about this amazing school chorus (which has recorded with the band Passion Pit!), check out their blog. Keep reading »

The Fresh Wedding Of L.A.


Have you seen this video yet? The Broke-Ass Bride, aka Dana LaRue, stars with her lucky groom in a wedding video where they rap their love story to tune of the “Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air” theme song. Evidently, more and more folks are getting into making (potentially) viral videos of their big day. A company called Digital Princess Productions offers packages that let you do vids like this one, or you can go for a coordinated dance. Would you ever consider doing this, or is it the tackiest thing ever? [Urlesque] Keep reading »

Fox And Burger King Apologize For Ad Mocking Jessica Simpson’s Weight

Jessica Simpson really hasn’t had a great year. First, Tony Romo dumped her the day before her Barbie and Ken-themed birthday party, and then she witnessed a coyote snatching her beloved maltipoo, Daisy. Recently, meaning just last Sunday, she was the subject of a Fox and Burger King ad that aired during “Fox NFL Sunday.” In the ad, as you can see above, a few Dallas Cowboys players mock Tony for dating Jessica because she’s so fat. Both Fox and Burger King have released statements regarding the ad. Read them after the jump. Keep reading »

Liam Gallagher Has New Clothing Line, Doesn’t Care If You Like It


Liam Gallagher must’ve observed Lindsay Lohan‘s design trials and tribulations, and decided, “Hey, if she can do it, I can too.” He has a new clothing line in the works called Pretty Green and even filmed this highly informative promotional video! It’s packed full of fantastically narcissistic insightful quotes and Zoolander-esque moments involving brooding and smoking cigarettes against a gray backdrop. My favorite highlights: “You get a bit more classier as you get older,” “I’ve got some time now, I’m changing gears, but I’m still speeding,” and the philosophical, “Wearing top clothes and singing f**king in tune is pretty important isn’t it? I think it’s pretty much the same thing isn’t it? I can do both.”

What a renaissance man indeed! I also appreciate that he expressly reiterates the fact that if no one likes the clothes, at least he’ll get a new wardrobe out of it. My friend who sent this to me wrote, “What a tosser!” I say he’s just being a totally honest bloke, and, clearly, he takes himself his fashion expedition very seriously. Tell it like it is, Liam!
