Even though model Sara Ziff has walked for Chanel and Marc Jacobs and has been the face of Calvin Klein, Gap, Stella McCartney and Dolce & Gabbana, she strips the modeling industry of its glamour like she’s ripping off false eyelashes. Mentorship from Twiggy? Coddling from Miss Jay?
Actually, the life of a professional pretty face means fending off a scuzz-load of pervy photogs, according to Sara’s documentary “Picture Me” about the behind-the-scenes of modeling. Keep reading »
Televangelist Pat Robertson has said some pretty ridonkulous things. But recently, he topped even himself when, during a conversation about a bill protecting gay folks from hate crimes, he said it’s a slippery slope towards protecting “someone who likes to have sex with ducks.” When they heard this quote, Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci, who make up the group Garfunkel and Oates, made this hilarious pro-gay marriage music video, appropriately titled “Sex with Ducks,” celebrating the hypothetical freedom to “quack that swan.” So “put your beak in mine” and watch.

We (almost) feel bad for celebs sometimes. For famous peeps, like Katherine McPhee, getting chased down by the ‘razzi on the mean streets of California is part of everyday life.

Back in the day, summer television was all repeats and the only reason to watch was to finally see that episode of “Melrose Place” your VCR messed up recording. Luckily, the dark ages are over and summer nights are now filled with good shows. Okay, so it may not classify as “good,” but “I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here” has your back Mondays through Thursdays. Meanwhile, two of our favorite shows, “Weeds” and “True Blood” are both starting up this week. And you’ll want to catch the premiere of “Top Chef Masters,” which is kind of like regular “Top Chef” mixed with “Iron Chef.” After the jump, your television sked for the week. Keep reading »
Okay, mon, so this one really blew my mind. There’s this new dance craze in Jamaica called “daggering”—check out a very G-rated version in this Mr. Vegas video so aptly entitled “Daggering.” Basically, imagine a dude using his erect penis as a…er…dagger and trying to stab it into unaccommodating places on a woman’s body (i.e. anything but a hole). Um…basically simulating sex. Some geniuses are taking this craze into the bedroom—same idea only this time, they’re getting injured. Bending the penis when it’s at attention can cause it to fracture. The guys get a sudden, sharp pain and then their thing gets black and blue. Doctors in Jamaica are freaking out because the number of penis fractures in the country has tripled. As a result, government officials have banned any type of media promoting daggering.
Sheesh, until recently — thanks “Grey’s Anatomy”! — I didn’t even know penises could break. Warning dudes: always exercise caution with your dagger. [Newsweek]

I was a little skeptical about “The Vampire Diaries” until I watched this teaser. I thought the CW was just trying to capitalize on the vampire resurgence in the cheesy way that only that network can. But I was wrong. This trailer gave me the same excitement I had when I first saw “True Blood” and read the Twilight series. You can bet we’ll cover “The Vampire Diaries” in the fall once it premieres. Will you watch the show? Or are sick of vampires already? Keep reading »
An article on CNN yesterday turned me on to Zimababwe native Betty Makoni, CNN hero of the week. She is a teacher, a volunteer, and the executive director of her organization, Girl Child Network (GCN), which boasts 30,000 members in Zimbabwe alone. She was also raped when she was 6 years old.
