Broken Promise Rings

Virginity pledges are a total crock and now there's data to prove it.
"Teens who take virginity pledges are just as likely to have sex as teens who don't make such promises -- and they're less likely to practice safe sex to prevent disease or pregnancy, a new study finds."
Is anyone really surprised?

Senator Stuart Smalley?

It might have just happened!


I just saw this movie trailer for a crazy-white-bitch flick and it looks incred! Ali Larter stars and Beyonce plays a supporting role where she might actually earn her keep (i.e., she's not just singing again)!

Planet Unicorn Heyyy

Feathers, Cadillac and Tom Cruise are back for Christmas! They even have their own website!

5 Minute and 30 Second Eye Roll

I can't stand this cowardly, close-minded talking head, but made a reel of Elisabeth Hasselbeck's Top 25 Most Annoying Moments of 2008 (believe me, there are more than 25) and it's worth the watch. The funny thing is, all of these bites can be taken for their face value. I watch The View every day and can safely say none are taken out of context: she's actually this annoying and mislead.

Barney the Dog Strikes Again!

Forget that pesky recession and auto bailout, President Bush has more important things to do: A Red, White and Blue Christmas! This year's installment features Jenna's new hubby, and summer Olympic gold medalists Michael Phelps and Nastia Liukin (Barney dreams of being a champ himself, obvi). I feel the Barney Christmas videos are similar to Sarah Palin's recent interview in front of a Thanksgiving turkey slaughter: where are their handlers telling them these are BAD ideas?

Sandy Bullock Is Back!

I just learned a new abbreviation and it's perfect timing: one of my fave rom com (romantic comedy) stars, Sandra Bullock, is headed back to the big screen and will be starring along side laughtastic Ryan Reynolds. The Proposal tells the story of Canadian Margaret, an overbearing boss to her assistant Andrew, as she uses him to get married so she can gain citizenship in the U.S. Betty White co-stars, peeps fall in love and it seems that this movie just may be a flawless rom com (twice in one post, zing!). Too bad this flick isn't out until June 2009!

Dear Zachary: a letter to a son about his father

Last night I watched the saddest documentary I have ever seen. Dear Zachary chronicles one man's quest to document all video and memorable stories of his late friend, Andrew Bagby. Bagby was gunned down by an ex-lover who later gave birth to his only son, Zachary. The hours of interviews and home video were being compiled for Zachary so he could one day know his father. Though, that's not where the story ends as the Bagby tragedy continues for its family and many heartbroken friends and the video tribute turns into so much more.
*The docu is currently airing on MSNBC- check your local listings for days/times.

Why Bother?

I'm not Jessica Alba's biggest fan, but she definitely didn't need any airbrushing for her new Campari campaign. So why the digital slim down? Does anyone really think she looks heavy in the original pic (left)?

Painfully Accurate

Saturday Night Live might have been teeming with political parodies anticipating the 2000 presidential election, but this one is a little too close to the truth. Nice work, Bush!

Babies Having Babies, For Reals!

This is insane: a baby girl born in Saudi Arabia is pregnant.

My Name Is Sayid Jarrah

This post actually has nothing to do with Sayid, but everything to do with my anticipation of the Lost season premiere on 1/21/09! A new clip of the season opener is floating around and I am already desp for answers. Is Claire still on the island? If so, is she alive or a ghost? Will Freckles ever stop being useless? Will bearded and drunken Jack really get the Oceanic Six back to the island? Will Sayid's hair go back to curly or will he keep his lion-esque straight locks?

Multiple Blessings

It might be too God-y for me, but I still really want to read this. Perhaps we will get some Duggar-style recipes!

It's Like I'm Walking On Sunshine

While my DVR often gets filled with episodes of The View, The Girls Next Door, Lost and Jon & Kate Plus 8, I am also in love with shows about medical conditions: mysterious ones, addictions, and anything weight-loss related. They all capture my interest, but A&E's Intervention never gets old. I was recently introduced to Allison, who was addicted to huffing the canned air we use to clean electronics. Though I hate to admit, I laughed at some parts of her ep, but was mostly rooting for her give up the inhalants.
Make sure you view all 5 parts to see her full story!


Ok, I gave in: I've officially purchased a T-Pain single on itunes, auto-tuning and all. Can't Believe It is a slow jam that originally featured Lil Wayne, but for those of you who can't stand Wayne (seriously, how is someone so unattractive so famous?), Justin Timberlake stepped up to remix the track and made it my song of winter 2008 (and I use 'winter' loosely seeing that I live in LA).
Bring it on down to Omletteville!
