“Cult” Not “Author” Is the JT LeRoy Documentary You Should Watch

Laura Albert is pretending to be someone she’s not. Again. Or maybe she’s telling the truth this time. That’s the problem when someone lies so much to so many people: when should we start believing their stories about wolves?

In 1991, a People magazine reporter interviewed Donald Drumpf’s supposed publicist “John Miller” to discuss his divorce from Ivana, his rebound relationship with Marla Maples, and all the attention he receives from hot female celebrities.

EXCLUSIVE: The Proposed TOC of GOOP’s 2nd Forthcoming “Sex Issue”

This week, Gwyneth Paltrow launched the first ever Sex Issue on her “much-discussed” lifestyle blog, GOOP.com.  It’s been a long-time coming from the homeopathic, macrobiotic, down-to-earth gazillionaire who introduced the world to the much-needed infrared and mugwort uterine cleanse. Gwynie’s saucy issue did not disappoint, with such such sage advice as investing in a $15,000 dildo and […]

Goodnight Sweet Prince: Remembering The Legend’s Sexiest Songs

I guess you could say he was a sex fiend. Prince — who died on April 21st, 2016 at the young age of 57 — dedicated a lot of musical acreage on most of his albums to unabashed sexual expression. There was plenty of macho posturing, for instance, boasting in the 1980 song “Head” about […]

The 5 Stages of Grieving Over a Celebrity Divorce

We know that we shouldn’t continue to be surprised by celebrity divorces, and most of the time, we’re not. Take Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, for example — much as we (okay, Em: she’s the Us Weekly reader of the two of us) enjoyed the sweet photos of their “date afternoons” drinking smoothies together or […]
