World’s Fattest Mother Wants To Become World’s Fattest Woman

Wouldn’t life be liberating if you never had to worry about what you ate for fear of packing on the pounds or destroying your health? For Donna Simpson of New Jersey, life is that great. You see, Donna already weighs 602 pounds and has held the Guinness World Record for world’s fattest mom since 2007, when she gave birth to her daughter Jacqueline during a high-risk Caesarean procedure. But she wants to gain 400 more pounds so her total weight will be at least 1,000 pounds. Then, Donna might hold the record for world’s fattest woman. Donna, who wears a size XXXXXXXL, can’t go more than 20 feet without sitting down, and needs a mobility scooter to go shopping, consumes 12,000 calories a day to reach her goal. And as you guessed it, vegetables aren’t on the menu, although sushi is her favorite food. Donna makes her money through a website in which male admirers pay to watch while she consumes fast food. Her food bill is $750 a week. Yet Donna insists she’s healthy and her weight gain goals won’t be harmful. “I love eating and people love watching me eat,” she said to the Daily Mail. “It makes people happy, and I’m not harming anyone.” [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Infertility Clinic Raffles Off A Human Egg As Grand Prize

I’ll tell you what I don’t want to win as a raffle prize: another woman’s egg to implant in my uterus. In what can only be described as a serious lapse in judgment, a fertility clinic in the U.K. decided to have a raffle with the grand prize being an opportunity to experience the miracle of life via IVF with a human egg of their choosing. I wonder what the runner-up gets. A test tube of sperm?

The reasoning behind this contest? To promote IVF. Translation: to keep up with the American infertility market, to get more broads to donate eggs, and to make more money off of rich, infertile couples. In addition to the free IVF procedure worth about $18,000, the lucky winner will be able to view childhood pictures of potential donors before choosing one based on the mother’s profession, ethnic background, hair color, qualifications, and upbringing. Natch, the treatment will take place in America to bypass stringent British fertility laws. Keep reading »

A Dwarf Theme Park? Yes, Really

Some little people are having a really big problem with a theme park in China called Kingdom of the Little People. The park actually employs troupes of dwarfs as the main attraction. Their piece de resistance is a little person slapstick version of “Swan Lake.” Sounds very wrong, right? At least that’s what The Little People of America, a support group for people with dwarfism, think. They believe the park is promoting segregation and projecting a negative image for people of short stature. But the park’s owner, Chen Mingjing, has a different take. He sees the park as a way to help the more than 100 dwarfs who he says might otherwise be out of work. Only in China, folks. What do you think? Exploitation or public service? [AOL]

So what do you think? Is Kingdom of the Little People offensive?

Anna Nicole’s Life Gives The Opera Reason To Sing

Anna Nicole Smith will be remembered for many things: her buxom body, obsession with the color pink, whiny baby voice, and, of course, marriage to oil tycoon Howard Marshall. Never did we think Anna Nicole would be associated with opera. The same guy who helped bring “Jerry Springer: The Opera” to the stage, Richard Thomas, has written a new opera about Anna Nicole. Mark-Anthony Turnage composed it and opera director Richard Jones will stage the production. The libretto will end with Anna Nicole’s death, so it won’t focus on all the drama that followed regarding daughter Dannielynn’s custody. [Reuters] Keep reading »

Woman Shaves And Drives, Causes Car Wreck

There are a lot of things that are dangerous to do while driving — texting, eating, putting on makeup, shaving your vajayjay. Wait. Who would actually shave their pubes while driving a car? Oh, Megan Barnes. The 37-year-old was driving to meet her boyfriend in Key West when she asked her passenger to hold the wheel so she could groom her bikini area. As a result, Barnes’ car caused a wreck, which, thankfully, resulted in only minor injuries. Only a day earlier, Barnes had been arrested for a DUI. They need to take this chick’s keys away — and her razor! [Tabloid Prodigy] Keep reading »

A Bald Head Makes A Great Canvas

Philip Levine started losing his hair about four years ago, and instead of covering up his baldness with a bad rug, he decided to embrace it by using his head as a canvas. And, unintentionally, he said he’s helped people suffering from cancer, alopecia, and other diseases that cause hair loss by inspiring them: “You can be empowered by painting your head … Even though you’re suffering, you can embrace your baldness.” The flowers that body artist Kat Sinclair paints on him in this video are tame compared to some of the other designs he’s worn, which you can see on his website, PhilSays.com. What would you think if your guy started sporting a painted scalp? [via NOTCOT] Keep reading »

Parents So Obsessed With Second Life Baby That They Neglect Real Baby

This is an extremely twisted story. Korean couple Kim Yoo-chul, 41, and Choi Mi-sun, 25, met in 2008 in an internet chat room and fell in love over their mutual love of Second Life. Three months ago, they had a baby together—at the same time, they also had a baby in Second Life. But because they were so obsessed with the game, they spent about 12 hours a night together at internet cafes playing it. They fed, clothed, and nurtured their virtual baby while leaving their real baby home alone without food. One night in September, they came home—and their real baby had died of malnutrition. The couple admitted to leaving her alone and feeding her rotten formula and are being charged with child abuse and neglect. Talk about an internet love gone wrong. [Daily Mail]

New Jersey Family Forced To Cover Up “Indecent” Snow Babe

Despite what we’ve learned from “Jersey Shore,” not everyone in the Garden State is psyched to see public nudity. This week, the Gonzalez family of Rahway, NJ, were forced to cover up their snowy tribute to the Venus de Milo. After toiling for hours in the snow, the family got a visit from the po-po after receiving anonymous complaints of a “naked snow woman.” The officer agreed it was a work of art but asked the family to put some clothes on the curvaceous ice lady. So they found a bikini top and sarong. The mother of the family, Maria, agreed that the statue was womanly but not worth censorship. “[The statue is] curvaceous, bodacious and booty-licious—but not obscene, I thought she looked more objectified and sexualized after you put the bikini on.” Seriously. It’s not like she had labia or even nipples. With all the craziness going on in the world, you’d think there would be bigger problems than a topless hunk of frozen ice which will melt in a week. And if NJ cops need to crack down on nudity, they should track down Snooki in the dance clubs! Just sayin’. [Newser] Keep reading »
