Celebrating the Holidays Means Partying in the Street Drunk in Britain

Have you heard of Mad Friday? It's like the British version of a frat party run amok, except the people celebrating aren't all in college and the partying takes place in bars and on streets the Friday before Christmas. There's still plenty of alcohol, violence and incessant PDA though. » 12/23/13 7:20pm 12/23/13 7:20pm

College Students Engaged in Terrifying New Practice of Drinking…

Oh, I'm sorry, did I accidentally sleepwalk through a tesseract last night and wake up in a universe where scare pieces about "pre-funking" aren't older and hoarier than Father Time's mustache? NO? Then why have the newsies delivered this scandal to me in today's gazette!? » 11/12/12 10:00am 11/12/12 10:00am

Tip: When Being Arrested, Don't Try To Tell Cops To Arrest Someone Else …

When 64-year-old Linda Szczepanski was arrested for drunk driving last week, she had some advice for the officer involved. She told him he "should not be messing with little old ladies and senior citizens," and that instead, the police should "start arresting some pedophiles" and "get rid of the Mexicans." Her blood alcohol… » 4/15/11 4:46pm 4/15/11 4:46pm

Girl After Our Own Drunken, Period-Sexed Hearts Crashes Tyra

A bunch of "party girls" went on Tyra to talk about their heavy drinking and late nights out, but Tyra turned it into a therapy session of rehab, with counseling from Dr. Drew and reformed porn star Mary Carey, acting as sponsor.

Did Hillary's Appearance On O'Reilly Actually Make Me Like Her More?

Fox is the only news channel that gets any audio on my cable box. This is something, like the interminable nature of this campaign, I generally regard as a negative. But yesterday I had a revelation. See, Hillary Clinton just went on Bill O'Reilly, and when they aren't rerunning clips of the really boring interview,… » 5/02/08 10:30am 5/02/08 10:30am

Bad Girls Club Was A Crazy Call And Response

There's really no point to the Oxygen series Bad Girls Club, other than straight-up voyeurism of straight-up assholes, yet it's still riveting. Last night's episode was an example of that, because all that happened in the show's 22 minutes was that Cordelia (the former porn chick) got shit-faced and then screamed a… » 4/09/08 11:00am 4/09/08 11:00am

Celebrity Rehab: The Only "Promise" Is Lindsay Will Remain A Coke-Addled …

Call me naive; I always figured that, profligacy/paparazzi/presence of other addicted photogenic celebs aside, Lindsay was on balance better off in rehab than at, you know, Hyde. Really, what was I thinking? There is no crop of people more price-insensitive than a bunch of people used to watching a few grand disappear… » 10/09/07 4:00pm 10/09/07 4:00pm

Smirnoff Source, The Official Beverage Of Summer 2007

Yesterday we read about Paula Abdul drinking a form of alcoholic water at a party. We expect that most of the "water" Paula drinks is alcoholic, but this was different: a spring water with 3.5% alcohol content called Smirnoff Source. Just in time for Lindsay's 21st! A "water" for people who are, you know, "sober"! A Google… » 6/26/07 4:04pm 6/26/07 4:04pm

Amy Winehouse Onscreen Not So Different Than Amy Winehouse Offscreen


Since losing all that weight and gaining all that back-comb, Amy Winehouse has been looking like a cracked-out whore—and now she's playing one on cable TV! Thanks to photographer/film director David LaChappelle, who directed Winehouse's latest video, "These Tears Dry on Their Own" (probably the best single from Back… » 6/26/07 1:07pm 6/26/07 1:07pm
