Television producers might be running out of ideas for new shows, because the people over at Lifetime have taken what is essentially the episode of “The Tyra Banks Show” when Tyra dons a fat suit to experience what it’s like to be a larger woman. “Drop Dead Diva” premiered last night.
The premise of the show is that two very different women, Deb and Jane, both die. When Deb, a beautiful, blond wannabe model, gets to Heaven’s gates, something goes awry and she ends up back on earth in the body of Jane, a plus-size lawyer. So, this new woman has Deb’s mind and Jane’s body, and according to Lifetime’s website, “Deb must come to terms with inhabiting Jane’s plus-size frame in the ultimate showdown between brains and beauty.” Keep reading »
After thinking a lot about that crazy singles map of the US and how all the ladies on the East Coast are screwed, I got back to my navel gazing about what it means to be single. (I have plenty time alone to think about these things.) I moved on from my bubble of self-absorption (played out) and started wondering what it must be like to be single in other countries—not that I’m thinking of fleeing or anything. Is it better in France where fidelity is not a cultural moray? Is it worse in India with the caste system and arranged marriages? And what are those cold singles in Iceland doing to stay warm? Well wonder no more, because Liz Tuccillo (Mrs. “She’s Not That Into You” and former “Sex and the City” writer) is travlling the globe to demystify singlehood in an awesome web series called, “How to be Single.” Um…amazing! After the jump, a few of my fave revelations from single sisters around the world. [Your Tango] Keep reading »
Maybe it’s because I haven’t seen another human being in five days, but I’m really enthusiastically excited about the movies coming out this week. They all share a certain theme, which happens to be my favorite: awkwardness! First, “Brüno” gets audiences all blushy by showing his waxed man body (and balls, apparently?). Then a nerd goes for the cheerleader (shocker) in “I Love You, Beth Cooper.” And finally, two men take bromance to the next level in “Humpday.” Bye! I’ll be at the movies with my new friends, butter and slushy. Keep reading »
Yes, we’ve done a lot of posts about “Bruno” in the past two days. No, we’re not planning on stopping anytime soon. The other night, Sacha Baron Cohen went on “The Late Show With David Letterman” as…(gasp)…himself. He describes getting an interview with an actual terrorist for the movie. Any chance he’ll divorce Isla Fisher and marry me? Keep reading »
NeNe’s gonna meet her real father! Sheree’s gonna get evicted! And she shoots guns! And she pulls at Kim’s wig! The promo video for “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” season two is reality TV heaven packaged into 30 seconds. It definitely looks like the Atlanta ladies are bringing their A-game to compete with the “prostitution whores” of New Jersey. I can’t wait to “watch what happens” in exactly 20 days when the next season premieres. Keep reading »
Evian wants to make you feel as good as a baby rollerblading to “Rapper’s Delight.” Umm, what? The French mineral water company recently posted an ad online featuring a bunch of CGI babies flipping and rollerblading around bottles. The company boasts that Evian’s “pure and mineral-balanced” water “supports your youth.” Sorry, but if there’s not some special youth hormone in that bottle, than it’s just regular H2O. Am I the only one who thinks this video is totally creepy? And who has The Sugarhill Gang stuck in my head? [Daily Mail]

Fascinating topic on “The Tyra Show” today — gay for pay porn actors! In the clip above, Tyra asks a married father of three why he prefers to, ahem, receive presents rather than give them. TyTy has such a knack for making XXX subject matter seem G-rated. Keep reading »
Here’s a crazy idea—a Dutch tampon company dropped these little, pink tampon parachutes on a beach to promote their brand. They’re kind of amazing, if not terrible for the environment. Although you probably can’t understand what the people in this video are saying, watching it will tell you two things. 1) Tampons are falling from the sky. 2) The person holding the camera is definitely a guy. Check out all the hot girls he zooms in on.

Oh, joy! Margaret Cho visited “The View” this morning and dished all about how she cannot have an orgasm from intercourse, so she hightailed it to her doctor’s office to get a bead of collagen injected into her G-spot.
The G-spot shot didn’t work at all, unforch. But I’ll give you one guess as to what still does make Cho come! (Even pregnant and prudish Elisabeth Hasselbeck cracks a smile.) [via Jezebel] Keep reading »
Chloe Sevigny (alongside various NYC hipsters) stars and skates in the video for “Any Fun” by Jason Schwartzman’s musical outlet, Coconut Records. You might remember that Chloe used to hang out in New York City’s Washington Square Park with skater kids after lying to her parents about her whereabouts. Well, apparently she learned a few tricks when she was skipping school. Chloe’s no stranger to music videos, either, having starred in Sonic Youth’s “Sugar Kane” video in the ’90s. Since she’s such a trendsetter, maybe we’ll all start wearing Mexican Baja hoodies in a few months. Or not. We still haven’t gotten on her whole socks with sandals bandwagon. Keep reading »
