Weiner Doll Is a Whole Lot More Fun Than Ken

It was only a matter of time before the Anthony Weiner dolls went on sale — his weirdly hair-free chest is practically begging for a Ken doll version. Enter HeroBuilders.com, home of the Obama Rambama doll and the Sarah Palin action figure, amongst others. They are currently selling two Weiner dolls, both clad in white gym […]

Beyonce, Who Run the World? Not Girls.

Beyonce’s latest hit “Run the World” is a girl-power anthem, sort of: “Who run the world? Girls” over and over. Maybe it’s aspirational. Eh, probably not. We think this smart and harsh take by Vlogger “Nineteen Percent” is a better breakdown of the song: we don’t run the world, we do get disrespected, gypped at […]

Blocking a Sex Tape Is Like Getting Toothpaste Back in the Tube

J.Lo in wax via Flickr We never thought we’d say this, but we feel kind of bad for Jennifer Lopez. Apparently she made a sex tape of sorts — there was no actual sex in it — with her ex-hubby on their honeymoon back in 1997, and now he’s shopping it around. J.Lo fought to […]

Loving Hating Gwenyth

We always knew Gwyneth Paltrow was kind of annoying, but we didn’t realize it was “official” until we read the recent Time magazine review of her new movie “Country Strong,” which wasn’t so much a movie review as it was an account of how much people love to hate this her. For a recent example […]

Can Best Friends Be Sex Friends?

You gotta love a movie trailer with lots swear words, nudity, sex scenes and menstruation references. We don’t think we’ve looked forward to an Ashton Kucher vehicle since “Dude, Where’s My Car,” but the “restricted” trailer (NOT one of the many sanitized-for-tv versions) for his next flick, “No Strings Attached,””co-starring the ever-present Natalie Portman (fingers […]

The Raw Sex Scenes of Blue Valentine

One of the films we’re most excited to see in the next few months is the indie-flick 12 years in the making, “Blue Valentine,” starring Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling and out December 31st. It’s an intimate portrait — almost documentary style — of a relationship/marriage over the course of several years, cross-cutting between different […]

Sex Degrees of Separation

We, Em & Lo, worked with and are friends with (and Lo was apt-mates with) Jessica Baumgardner, who married Irad Eyal, which is our connection to the new book “Sex Degrees of Separation.” Irad has just turned his unhealthy obsession with celebrity hook-ups into an exhaustive encyclopedia that combines the idea of “six degrees of […]

Perez Hilton Says Something Smart

We never thought we’d say this, but Perez Hilton has a point. We’re usually not fans, but he’s got a good bit on the importance of coming out on the fabulous site Big Think, which interviews hundreds of experts, from hedge-fund managers to neuroscientists, to help us plebs make better decisions and form more erudite […]

Christina Aguilera Replaces "Vajayjay" with "Woohoo"

We’re predicting the big pop hit of the summer is here — and it’s a going to be an anthem for girls nights out all over the country. For Christina Aguilera’s new song “Woohoo” featuring Nicki Minaj (from her album Bionic out this June) is all about the joys of cunnilingus. Best line ever: “All […]

Dear Em & Lo, Can Rehab Cure Jesse James & Tiger Woods?

Dear Em & Lo, What is your opinion on the Jesse James fiasco and the Tiger Woods disaster? I cannot put myself to understand why a guy, who is married, needs to go out and ruin his marriage and family by sleeping with other girls. And why do these girls, who KNOW that these men […]

The Wisdom of Corey Haim

We were too young to realize it at the time, but Corey Haim’s Lucas (1986) showed us exactly why the band geek makes a better boyfriend than the captain of the football team. Rest in peace, Corey Haim — you may not have been the most eloquent cast member of the reality show The Two […]

New Jersey vs. California: Which State Is Worse for Sex?

Well, suddenly No-Offense Prejean is looking like the picture of tolerance (after all, she did also […]

Top 10 Sex Tapes We REALLY Don't Want to See

But we guess that as long as egotistic, power-drunk celebs continue to think they […]

Rihanna’s Domestic Abuse Sells Albums — So What?

Rihanna’s album, “Rated R,” is — not coincidentally — on sale now Some people have been questioning Rihanna’s choice to wait to talk about her domestic abuse right until the release of her new album. Um, what? First of all, that’s just the way the magazine-TV-PR-celebrity-promotional circle jerk works: celebrities don’t tend to chat to magazine writers […]
