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]

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 »

Yeah, This Is Pretty Much How Men And Women Fight


Two cats act out a pivotal scene from an upcoming episode of “Days of Our Lives.” OK, maybe not, but is this not the most hilarious and realistic portrayal of a fight between two lovers? [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Vanilla Ice Hawks Beer In South Africa


I’m not exactly proud of it, but there was a time in my life when the mere mention of the name Vanilla Ice would make my pulse quicken. That time was 1990, when I wore out my cassette of To The Extreme. A few years later, Vanilla was a musical footnote who made the perfect subject for a tearjerker episode of “Behind The Music.” I respected him a few years back when he broke out with his hardcore band and gave us an angstier version of “Ice Ice Baby.” But now, Vanilla has cropped up in this beer commercial in South Africa. This makes me very sad—I mean, he’s even reverted back to his M.C. Hammer-wannabe style, complete with sequins. Well, at least he’s not doing vanilla ice cream ads? Breyers, you’ll have to pay me for that idea. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Shauna Sand Is Going To Sell Her Stuff On eBay


I don’t know what’s gotten into me lately, but I seem to have developed some kind of strange, vague obsession with Shauna Sand. There is something about a woman who walks around 24/7 in Lucite stripper shoes, who has turned herself into a kind of living Barbie, who may very well have produced her own sex tape (or not!), that captivates me. It’s like watching a zombie that looks like a living doll navigate the world in stilettos. Anyway. Now, Shauna’s gonna sell her stuff on eBay, and the video promo for it boggles. Boggles! I can’t believe I have to wait until Oct. 23 to bid on those rhinestone-and-Lucite heels. [Heyman Hustle] Keep reading »
