Ralph Lauren Apologizes for Olympic Uniforms “Made in China” — Sort of

Written by , Posted in General


Another day, another celebrity apology. In response to the insane amount of criticism over the United States’ Olympic uniforms not actually being made in the United States, Ralph Lauren issued an official statement, saying:

“For more than 45 years Ralph Lauren has built a brand that embodies the best of American quality and design rooted in the rich heritage of our country. We are honored to continue our longstanding relationship with the United States Olympic Committee in the 2014 Olympic Games by serving as an Official Outfitter of the US Olympic and Paralympic teams. Ralph Lauren promises to lead the conversation within our industry and our government addressing the issue of increasing manufacturing in the United States and has committed to producing the Opening and Closing ceremony Team USA uniforms in the United States that will be worn for the 2014 Olympic Games.”

Translation? We like to keep our price point low to make a larger profit, but because we got in trouble we’ll make an exception . . . this time around.

Lindsay Lohan’s Dad is Pregnant — Why Don’t Men Wear Condoms?

Written by , Posted in General

I’ve never understood a man’s desire to forgo the condom. I fundamentally reject the idea of putting my entire future in the hands of another person’s responsibility. There’s also that very obvious other reason, which is a major source of concern (pun intended — and not easy to ascertain). But congratulations to Lindsay Lohan, who will soon be a big sister for a fourth time.

The Bachelorette Men Tell All — Kalon’s Still a Douche — Or is He?

Written by , Posted in General


Once upon a time, after dating a guy for a few weeks, he invited me to his apartment. To avoid future awkwardness, I said, “Sure I’ll go. But just so we’re on the same page, I’m not having sex with you.” “Well forget it then,” he said. “I’m not interested in an old-fashioned courtship before I get laid.” So what’s the point of disclosing such personal Dishmaster details? In short, it’s to pose a question about whether Kalon is actually a douchebag for using the word “baggage” to define Emily Maynard’s daughter. Though he and my former date might need to revamp their verbal approach if they ever want a wife, there’s something admirable about brutal honestly.

Update: I forgot to mention Emily Maynard’s sassy response to Kalon’s comments. After Kalon apologized, Emily said, “You, my dear, should be a politician, because that’s the biggest load of **** I’ve ever heard,” followed by exposing his recent tweet, which repeated his original baggage comment. If only she showed this much personality on the actual show.

Kate Upton Responds to Fat Controversy — Won’t Starve Herself

Written by , Posted in General

Everyone knows The Dishmaster loves curvy women, and everyone also knows that fashionistas don’t eat. So I predictably loved her response to a gossip website’s (whose name I’m deliberately omitting) ridiculous suggestion that she lose thirty pounds. And to celebrate Kate’s very sexy body, I’ve posted a video of her with famed photographer Terry Richardson. You’ll see why when you watch below.

‘Step Up Revolution’ — Behind the Scenes

Written by , Posted in General

I received the video below in my inbox, and my love for the Step Up franchise meant I had to post it. The newest installment, ‘Step Up Revolution,’ takes place in Miami, and according to my press release, here’s what it’s about: “Emily (Kathryn McCormick) arrives in Miami with aspirations of becoming a professional dancer and soon falls in love with Sean (Ryan Guzman), a young man who leads a dance crew in elaborate, cutting-edge flash mobs, called “The Mob.” When a wealthy business man threatens to develop The Mob’s historic neighborhood and displace thousands of people, Emily must band together with Sean and The Mob to turn their performance art into protest art, and risk losing their dreams to fight for a greater cause.” If that plot doesn’t strike your fancy, it doesn’t really matter — the story is always secondary to the dancing anyhow. Watch below.

Christie Brinkley Combats Lyme Disease With Guinea Hens

Written by , Posted in General

This story was just interesting enough to post. According to the New York Post, there’s a hot demand amongst the Hamptons elite for guinea hens. Christie Brinkley and Billy Joel started the craze in 1990 when they conducted an experiment on their property, which “showed the correlation between guinea fowl and reduced deer tick populations.” The craziest part of this story is the idea that Christie Brinkley and Billy Joel worked well enough together to conduct an experiment. The second craziest part is the vision of a bunch of rich, crazy celebrities with hens running all over their property.

Real Housewives of OC Reunion: Don Cheated on Vicki for 20 Years!!!??

Written by , Posted in General

Part two of the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion will likely be one of the best in history when Vicki reveals that Don cheated on her for 20 years of their marriage. I found this to be especially shocking considering that Vicki often looked like a villain and yet she avoided the opportunity to drag his name through the mud. But she finally hit her breaking point when her daughter exposed that Vicki and Brooks’ relationship went further back than anyone realized. Watch below.

Steven Tyler Quits American Idol — Returns to Real Music

Written by , Posted in General

This is a hit I never saw coming. Steven Tyler officially announced that he’s leaving American Idol, saying, “I strayed from my first love, Aerosmith, and I’m back.” It’s rumored that Jennifer Lopez is on her way out also, which is mostly attributed to her recent career resurgence. I can’t help but wonder if his announcement is a fancy way of saying, “they didn’t ask me back,” but I’ll squash my internal cynic for a moment and make an even more cynical comment: His exit is completely irrelevant. His “everyone-is-wonderful” attitude didn’t add much to the show, and it only served to hurt his rock-star brand. So welcome back to the real world, Steven. We missed you over here.

Mike Fleiss v. “Reality Steve”: ‘The Bachelorette’ Spoiler War

Written by , Posted in General


If you’re a fan of ‘The Bachelorette,’ then you know that every season of ABC’s show is met with spoilers from an internet blogger known as “Reality Steve.” It’s been the bane of ABC’s existence for years, and last year ABC received a long-awaited gift in their inbox when they discovered that Steve Carbone encouraged show contestants to violate their contract, which finally gave ABC cause to sue. They reached a settlement, but that settlement may or may not have banned Carbone from future spoilers. My guess is it didn’t, because he’s still spoiling the ending, and no one is stupid enough to so blatantly breach a contract with a big network. But according to Twitter, series creator Mike Fleiss thinks differently. Fleiss ranted about Carbone, calling him a “parasite,” and insisting that his spoilers hurt his show because, “no one wants to know who won the Super Bowl before sitting down to watch the game.” Although I understand Fleiss’ frustration, his example is sub-par. Viewers like to watch the show with knowledge of the final choice so they can look for the clues they might not have noticed otherwise. And furthermore, Mike Fleiss is a generally creepy dude that should probably stay off twitter. He likely has limited knowledge of the legal system and what would constitute a breach of contract, so in the end, he’s needlessly exposing his ignorance.
