LOFT Says We Misunderstood Their Hilarious Video About Binge Exercise

Clothing brand LOFT is standing behind a hilarious video they posted to their Facebook page last week showing a woman frantically binge exercising in plastic wrap until she passes out.

Newscaster Wore The Same Suit For A Year To Prove a Point about Sexism

It's obviously no secret that there is a huge gender gap (in general but also) in how we respond to what celebrities wear. Women's appearances are always subject to critique while men's wardrobes are hardly judged in comparison.

'Princeton Mom' Is Just Being Honest and Doesn't Believe in Date Rape

Marry Smart, the retrograde pile of garbage that the 'Princeton Mom' has sandwiched between two pieces of cardboard and called a book, drops today.

This Gleeful Ode to Muffin Tops Is Not About the Pastry

Just about the only thing that could possibly redeem the stupid term "muffin top" is an extremely goofy novelty rap song by a mother of two with lyrics like, "You're a mother-fucking warrior who likes to eat cake." (She sang softly to herself, waiting in line at the bakery.) And what do you know? The Internet has… » 2/25/14 4:20pm 2/25/14 4:20pm

The Gentlemen of The Today Show Cuddled in a Canoe This Morning

Kathie Lee Wished Hoda a Happy B-Day by Channinging All Over Her Tatum

You know, there were plenty of super-important celebrity news stories we could kick this morning off with (K-Fed got married! and Angelina Jolie's kids are unimpressed by their mom's cinematic villainy!), and while I'm quite sure we're all familiar with the vicissitudes of morning talk show fate that paired… » 8/11/13 11:30am 8/11/13 11:30am
