The embed above features a woman who was secretly filmed for 10 hours as she walked the streets of New York City, NY in an effort to show the harassment that women face just by merely walking the streets of, well, any city in the world. Without the slightest bit of provocation, this woman is subjected to cat calls, harassing comments, and exclamations like DAMN! DAMN! from men acting like mindless animals. The woman in this video, Shoshana, commented after this video was filmed “I’m harassed when I smile and I’m harassed when I don’t. I’m harassed by white men, black men, latino men. Not a day goes by when I don’t experience this.” I must warn you, this video is very uncomfortable to watch no matter who you are. When the women refrains from reacting or responding to the unsolicited comments that are thrown her way, she is sometimes verbally attacked for not being thankful at the unwanted catcalls. As uncomfortable as it is to watch, I’m really glad that this video was made and shared online. No one deserves to be treated this way.
'I believe she is seeing him and hanging'
This has truly escalated quickly. I’d noticed a couple of headlines reporting that Mama June of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo had been spotted with an old boyfriend… who also happened to be a convicted child molester. I honestly did not think the story could get much worse. TLC canceled the hit series, and I figured that’d be the end of it. But now we’re learning that Mama June‘s ex-boyfriend had molested her eldest daughter Anna Shannon Cardwell—although he went to prison for a different child molestation case later.

'Twitter needs to step their game up'
I don’t write about Chrissy Teigen often, but every once in a while her tweets make the headlines, and I think this is a really interesting story. As many of you know, there was a shooting in Ottawa, Ontario, and Teigen took to Twitter to lament the fact that shootings are becoming every-day occurrences, specifically for Americans. Well, we know celebrities making comments about anything political (or with a political bent) can sometimes mean trouble. But, obviously, it shouldn’t mean that they receive death threats, which is exactly what happened to Teigen. Click inside for more.
Yes, yes, and yes.
So. About Renée Zellweger. SIIIIIiiigggghhhhhhh. I don’t have a lot of words, and I’m a little disappointed at how that story took the world by storm… so I was cracking up during this video of Russell Brand offering his take on the situation. I was happy to read the comments on this blog—I think most of us had positive things to say (aside from that initial bewilderment—which did make sense). Click inside to hear Russell Brand politely tear apart the celebrity gossip world, as only he can.
Presented without comment (because I honestly don't know what to say)
Renée Zellweger surfaced last night for the first time in a while on the red carpet of Elle magazine’s celebration of their annual Women In Hollywood issue and as you can see in the gallery presented here, Renée no longer looks like herself … at all. I tried to think of something clever to say about Renée‘s inexplicable new face but I truly don’t know what to say. I mean, you can kinda see the Renée we used to know in these photos but only if you squint and try real hard to see it … it also helps that we’re told that, YES, this is actually her. So, uh … yeah … what is there to say? Renée has a new face that she wanted to show off on the red carpet last night so … thoughts?
With a little help from Floyd Mayweather
It would appear that Justin Bieber is taking a break from being a pop star and an all around menace of crime to settle down and focus on his physical fitness. The Biebs posted a few photos online showing the world that he has begun training as a boxer with none other than his misogynistic BFF Floyd Mayweather. Justin Bieber, a boxer … can you even even?

This is a bona fide TRAVESTY
Ugh. For years now, uninspired producers have been mining properties from the past in order to reboot them for a new generation to capitalize from. Books, TV shows and movies from the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s have been retooled and revamped in new modern incarnations, usually in pretty bad ways. Today we learn that the ’80s toy/cartoon Rainbow Brite has been reimagined as a new animated TV series which looks so painfully bad that I cringe even thinking about the horror that YOU will feel when you watch the trailer above. Trust me, I feel your pain … I’ve already watched it and I hate my eyes for what they have seen. This new version of Rainbow Brite is such shit that, except for the fact that actress Molly Ringwald voices the villain, I can’t even think of one positive thing to say about it. But, in order to see that I am not exaggerating, you have to watch the trailer above and see what they have done to Rainbow Brite … then you can cleanse your palette below by watching a FULL episode of the original ’80s cartoon version of Rainbow Brite.

The off-duty officer reportedly fired 17 shots at the 18 year old man
In August, a police officer shot and killed 18-year old Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO and ignited a storm of nightly protests by the community who are rallying for the end of police violence against citizens. Last night, in St. Louis, MO, an off-duty police officer shot and killed an 18-year old man when he fired 17 shots at the man accused of coming at the officer “aggressively” in a gangway. Some reports maintain the victim was shot 16 times. It is absolutely horrifying to know that we live in a country where young black teenagers are seemingly routinely shot and killed by police officers who are supposed to serve and protect citizens.

... to a 19-year old guy named Caleb
Last week we learned that troubled former actress Amanda Bynes made her way to NYC after she was arrested just days before here in SoCal on charges of driving under the influence. Today we learn from Amanda herself that congratulations are in order … because she is engaged to be married to a 19-year old guy named Caleb. It’s difficult to take anything that she says seriously because she seems to be back to the “out of it” ways she used to exhibit last year before she was placed in medical care. It really sounds like she is back to the old, odd-acting Amanda that garnered a lot of attention on a seemingly daily basis. Click below to read what Amanda had to say to In Touch Weekly about her engagement and find out why she has decided to allegedly get married. More »
