TV Land is normally my haven for “The Cosby Show” and “Roseanne” reruns. But lately, the network’s branched out into original shows, like “The Cougar,” basically a “Bachelorette” rip-off where the lady doing the picking is 40 and the guys are all in their 20s. Tonight at 9pm is the season premiere of “She’s Got The Look,” the show that looks to “discover the next supermodel over the age of 35.” And I’ve got some pretty mixed feelings about it.

Most beer ads are crammed full of super skinny chicks with bigs boobs. So we love this Bud Light commercial, which invites us to laugh at a dude getting totally humiliated as he tries to buy a copy of Tongue & Cheeks only to have the cashier yell across the store, “This guy wants porno.” Then his prom date who he hasn’t seen since high school walks in? It sadly never aired on TV (uh, there is a vibrator in it), but we have it here for your viewing pleasure. Keep reading »
The Sarah Palin and David Letterman feud continues. After the “Late Show” host cracked jokes about the Palin’s trip to New York City, the family got all upset and issued some very silly statements. They should’ve just kept their mouths shut. I would never have known about Sarah’s “slutty flight attendent look” if she hadn’t started flapping her jaw. Last night, Letterman discussed the jokes at length, rereading the ones that got Sarah in a tizzy. He admitted that, yes, they were in poor taste but said “they’re just jokes.” All this back and forth is a little confusing so, after the jump, the breakdown. Keep reading »
Want to enjoy one night out without terrible pick-up lines, “accidental” groping, and lame dudes? Now, Mstaken.com sells an engagement ring (for $50) to avoid unwanted clingers. As the site instructs, “Slip on the ring—a little bright lie that says you’re married to the man of your dreams (whenever he gets here). When the coast is clear, stash your secret weapon in your keychain. Next time an unwanted suitor lurks near, tap your inner vixen and remember: you’re Ms. Taken!” One teensy problem? According to the guys at the blog Bar Stool Sports, wearing ring bling may actually encourage the unwanted suitors to pursue even more! Ah, the creme de la scum. Maybe Mstaken.com should sell pregnant body suits instead. [Bar Stool Sports]
Anyway, check out the company’s hilarious response to Andy Samberg’s “Saturday Night Live” digital short, “Jizz In My Pants,” called “Puke In My Mouth.” Keep reading »
Talk about lifting your spirits. A clinic in Arlington, Virginia, is offering free Botox injections to unemployed folks. Why? Many people looking for jobs are in their 40′s and 50′s, and they’re finding it hard to compete with bright-eyed bushy tailed college graduates who (a) will accept lower salaries and (b) have nary a stress line. This clinic hopes to battle age discrimination and boost confidence among the unemployed one shot at a time. Call it an image bailout.

It’s one thing for a comedian like Tina Fey to make fun of how inarticulate and fame-hungry Palin is. It’s another thing to say she dresses like a slut. But that’s what David Letterman of the Late Show did last night in his Top 10 roundup of “Highlights of Sarah Palin’s Trip To New York City,” when he said Palin must have “bought makeup at Bloomingdale’s to update her slutty flight attendant look.”
The rest of the list is actually pretty hilarious, but come on, we don’t have to be respectful of women only when we like them. Clip above!

Susan Boyle ain’t got nothing on these dudes. On a type of “Sweden’s Got Talent” show, four wise alecks choreographed a naked dance as their “talent.” Mind you, these were cute, skinny, blond-haired wise alecks, so we can’t say we mind their childish antics too much. Calling it the “Crispbread Dance”, the guys ran around stage semi-creatively using giant crackers to hide their junk to the tunes of “Kung Fu Fighting”, “What What In My Butt” (clearly potty humor is the same over there), and some version of Riverdance.
So does Sweden have talent? If the rest of the country looks like this, then we say ja. Keep reading »
This week’s “Real Housewives Of New Jersey” was AC all the way, baby! While the Atlantic City plotline seemed perfectly made for drama, there was little to none. Only talks about Lexi (who got back from Greece without going to a water park or contracting some terrible waterborne disease), buh-bies and Teresa’s packing skills. Let’s take a look at what the girls were up to in the Jerz this week… Keep reading »
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.
