Madison Young on Extreme Guide to Parenting

The Soup is essential viewing for anyone who likes to stay informed about trashy pop culture with minimum time and braincell commitment. Knowing just enough about the Kardashians-Bachelors-Ducks-Housewives ghetto to snark knowingly, without actually having to watch any of those shows, is a safe and sane compromise. The latest Soup episode revealed the existence of [...]

Jessie Nizewitz was a contestant on the third episode of VH1 reality show Dating Naked. Today we learn that she is suing Viacom and two production companies for failing to fully blur her naked privates, asking $10 million for her "severe extreme emotional distress, mental anguish, humiliation and embarrassment".

Napoleon Hill on Sex and Success

On the advice of my spiritual advisor, I've been reading some old-timey self-help books. Not new age stuff about feelings, self-esteem, your inner child and being OK, but pre-WW2 stuff about prosperity, dynamism and gumption.

A Who’s Who of Whores in Game of Thrones

All those bannermen, maesters and minor lords, the grunts of the Night's Watch and King's Guard and Dothraki horde, blur together sometimes. Have we seen that guy before? Does he have a name? Thank god for [...]
