For a Hollywood marriage, Kim Kardashian’s 72 days of matrimonial miss were downright average. What’s more, groom Kris Humphries bested fellow NBA star Dennis Rodman by 800 percent, which is an old-fashioned butt kicking if you ask any statistician. But where does this soon-to-be-dissolved union stack against real world quantities? Keep reading… READ FULL STORY

Seemingly always-surprised prophesier Harold Camping may have finally realized the old adage “If at first you don’t succeed…” doesn’t necessarily apply to him. After two fake-outs regarding the end of days (his first Rapture prediction was back in May and then rescheduled for October) Camping apologized once more to his followers in a Family Radio address on Oct. 28.
ChristianPost.com posted a transcript of Camping’s apology (which is for the best, because in my head it sounded something like this) in which he stated, “Why didn’t Christ return on Oct. 21? It seems embarrassing for Family Radio. But God was in charge of everything. We came to that conclusion after quite careful study of the Bible. He allowed everything to happen the way it did without correction. He could have stopped everything if He had wanted to.” READ FULL STORY
What caused Glenn Beck to cry on Today this morning? Did someone make Beck sit in a drum circle at the Occupy Wall Street movement? Or did someone buy him an Obama 2012 bumper sticker for his car? Nope, it’s neither of those things.
Rather, during a taped interview with Kathie Lee Gifford, the former Fox News commentator got emotional talking about the his own difficult childhood, which he drew inspiration from for his latest fiction book The Snow Angel. Among other things, Gifford and Beck discussed his mother’s death, a possible suicide, and why he and his family didn’t talk about it for a long time. “When you live in an alcoholic family or an abusive family, you tiptoe, you don’t want to step on any mines,” Beck said.
But when Beck tried to talk about the abuse (“My father told me abuse is generational”), the political pundit — who now runs his own pay-per online network GBTV — broke down and cried. “Now The Today Show is going to make fun of me again,” he said, wiping away tears. READ FULL STORY
Dozens of actresses desperate to cling to fame have increased their celebrity by posing for Playboy. So why does it seem so sad that Lindsay Lohan might be the next one to follow (birthday) suit?
TMZ reported today that the Mean Girls actress — who’s currently in trouble with the law — has agreed to pose for Hugh Hefner’s magazine for nearly $1 million. Her rep told EW he cannot confirm whether or not Lohan will indeed pose, but it wouldn’t be too surprising that a woman who already appeared partially nude for New York magazine would accept a big payday to star in another tasteful shoot. (UPDATE: X17, via People, spoke to Lohan’s mother, Dina, who said Lohan did indeed post for Playboy.) Yet, I can’t help but feel sad hearing this news. READ FULL STORY
Lindsay Lohan isn’t having the best week. (Then again, Lindsay Lohan hasn’t been having the best couple of days/weeks/months/years, but let’s not go there.)
Not only did the troubled Mean Girls star have her probation revoked yesterday in a Los Angeles court, where she was lead away in handcuffs and now awaits possible jail sentence, but now she’s been ordered to do more community service, this time at the L.A. county morgue. READ FULL STORY
Back in 2009, the Internet decided former reality show darling Jessica Simpson would be its target. Spotting an unflattering photo of the singer wearing a pair of ill-fitting jeans, Internet surfers and blogs unleashed upon Simpson, deriding her for supposedly daring to gain a smidge of weight. And though the singer still struggles with the taunts — and even used them as inspiration for her short-lived Vh1 series examining appearance, The Price of Beauty — our impatient, tabloid-hungry nation has shifted its focus. Now, the Internet is spending its time slamming pop star and The Voice mentor Christina Aguilera.
The body inspection of Aguilera is nothing new — in the early 2000s, chatter spread about a possible breast enhancement surgery. But now, eyes have moved to her thighs, with bloggers calling her every synonym for “fat,” even slapping her with nicknames comparing her to Jersey Shore‘s Snooki. (Who, by the way, looks perfectly fine too, despite some unwise clothing choices.) But the labels don’t stop on the Web. On Friday’s Fashion Police, Kelly Osbourne unloaded on the singer after some harsh photos from the Michael Jackson Tribute Concert began making the rounds. Said Osbourne, “She called me fat for years. I was never that fat.” READ FULL STORY
