We Heard From Joe Millionaire, He Sounds Really Nice, Self-Aware

We Heard From Joe Millionaire, He Sounds Really Nice, Self-Aware

Well, now we feel terrible.

Yesterday we ran a post where we mentioned that we thought Joe Millionaire (Evan Marriott) was a terrible person because of and interview he gave years ago stating that he wanted a blond with a cute little bubble butt. Sometimes we just throw out vitriol. Then we got the following incredibly nice, self aware letter from him. Ugh! He is a person! Sometimes we forget reality stars are people! We are jerks. We told him the following letter changed our opinion of him, and that we think it will change yours, too. Though the goatee still isn’t working for him. We stand by that. He explains: More »

Chelsea Handler Has The Right Idea About Helping Other Women In Their Careers

Chelsea Handler Has The Right Idea About Helping Other Women In Their Careers

Chelsea Handler is on the latest issue of Redbook Magazine. Yes, you heard me right. Chelsea Handler. The same woman who said, “There are two kinds of people I don’t trust: people who don’t drink and people who collect stickers.”Of course, she is right. That is just good common sense. But Redbook is a serious, grown-up woman’s magazine. I mean Michelle Obama was recently on the cover. Chelsea Handler likes to be known as a “Drunken Slut.” But the girl has a great career and she isn’t pulling up the ladder behind her it sounds like. She said: ‘I read this cheesy quote once: “Blowing out someone else’s candle doesn’t make yours glow brighter…’We women have to stick together… I’m very much about letting other people shine, because it makes us all shine brighter. I like having a fraternity. I like girls and boys together, misfits and underdogs – I love underdogs.” More »

Creepy Things That Seem Real But Aren’t: Ghostwatch

Creepy Things That Seem Real But Aren't: Ghostwatch

Creepy Things That Seem Real But Aren’t is a series that explores modern urban legends, bringing you a new tale each week.

Ghost Hunters, Most Haunted, Paranormal State, Ghost Adventures… These days, television is full of paranormal programming that purports to track ghostly phenomena, and each and every one of them swears up, down, left, and right that they’re the real deal. But in 1992, these types of shows were far from the norm. So when the BBC decided to air a 90-minute special on Halloween that claimed to be a live, on-air investigation of ongoing poltergeist activity at a house in Northolt, a neighborhood in west London, the public’s reaction was a great deal less jaded than our own would have been—especially given how the tragic events of the night unfolded. The program was called GHOSTWATCH, and it would go down in history as one of the BBC’s biggest mistakes. More »
