Last night on The Bachelor, Courtney had a big surprise for Ben during her hometown date: a practice wedding! While most normal men would find a surprise fake wedding during a date at the least hilarious and at the most horrifying, Ben loved it (probably one of the reasons most of you think Courtney's the winner). He even wrote super personal and sweet vows on the spot — although when most of us think of Courtney the words "kind," "real," and "honest" don't come to mind, more like "catty," "vain," and "two-faced." Then our favorite lip-puckering model said her vows, and even though we know she had plenty of time to write them, they have to be the most generic, nonheartfelt vows I've ever heard. What does "I'm looking for love" and "I know your happiness is the key to mine," say about Ben? We'll have to wait and see how this relationship evolves, but I'm guessing it's not with a real walk down the aisle. Watch the clip now to judge for yourself!
Just when we thought she couldn't get any cooler, one of our favorite funny ladies Amy Poehler stopped by Saturday Night Live last night and gave a great rant with Seth Meyers on the birth control debate via Really!?! With Seth and Amy. The pair rightly called out congressman Darrell Issa for his all-male panel on Obama's birth control mandate, Foster Freeze for his antiquated birth control idea (keep your legs closed), and Mike Huckabee's anti-birth-control line: "We're all Catholic now." To that last argument, Amy pointed out that the majority of Catholic women use contraception, saying, "You know who's not all Catholic now? All Catholics now." Thanks, Seth and Amy, for waking people up to the ridiculousness going on right now in regards to women's reproductive rights; let's hope it helps! Check out the clip now, and weigh in below.
The American Life League has figured out Planned Parenthood's grand scheme. The women's health organization wants to get kids hooked on sex, so it can sell them birth control and STD screenings, and eventually cash in on abortion services (never mind that birth control should reduce STD treatments and abortion). The American Life League has put out this video comparing Planned Parenthood's "business model" to that of a drug dealer, because it tries to get kids hooked on sex. The League accuses Planned Parenthood of being obsessed with sex, but if this video proves anything, it's that the American Life League is obsessed with sex. Here are five reasons this video will make you laugh out loud as you cringe.
- Planned Parenthood's goal is to make sex addicts. The host says with a straight face, "Just as a drug dealer's goal is to make drug addicts, Planned Parenthood's goal is to make sex addicts."
- Masturbation is the gateway drug. If it weren't for Planned Parenthood, people wouldn't masturbate, this video seems to claim, and if they didn't masturbate, they wouldn't have sex and need the services Planned Parenthood provides.
- Teen girls get STDs at gay pride parades. After showing footage of a gay pride parade, the host declares, "Is it any wonder that one in four teenage girls has an STD?"
- Penises and vaginas come in many forms. We see genitals in the form of sex toys, balloons, cartoons, lollipops, cakes, macaroons, and more.
- The description of sex education. Sex ed seems to turn on the American Life League, which claims in this video: "Once they get to high school, you know right about the time that they hit puberty, Planned Parenthood tells vulnerable teens stimulating and intimate things about sex."
While there's nothing funny about spreading negative messages about our bodies, homosexuality, or sex in general, I still think this video will still make you laugh. Watch above.
This Means War costars and friends Chelsea Handler and Reese Witherspoon were cracking up last night chatting about their sexy movie, social networking, and nude pics on Chelsea Lately. Chelsea said this is Reese's sexiest role yet (and having seen the movie, we have to agree!), especially the scene in which Reese is dancing in her underwear that Chelsea said "gave her a boner." They also discussed Chelsea's affinity for posting inappropriate pics on her Twitter and Facebook, and Chelsea said she's tried but failed to get a naked photo of Reese. Watch the clip now to hear what Reese said Chelsea would do with a nude pic of her if she ever succeeded in taking one!
Last night on The Bachelor it was more evident that the show's villain Courtney may end up being the heroine of Ben's life. Despite all the crazy we've seen behind the scenes of Courtney's catty and manipulative nature, it seems like Ben is head over Beavis shorts for the pouty-lipped model. And even though she acts incredibly confident about her status with Ben around the girls, she managed to convince the bachelor on her one-on-one date with him that she wasn't sure where she stood, and that she didn't feel the "spark" from him. But after him all-but professing his love and proposing right then and there to her, Courtney seemed back to her happy, confident ways. Well played, Courtney. Maybe she's taking tips from the other villain-turned-winner Vienna on Jake's season (although that didn't work out in the end). But no matter how you feel about Courtney, do you think she and Ben should end up together?

Chelsea Handler is never shy about sex. And last night in a candid — and even at some points emotional — interview with Rosie O'Donnell on The Rosie Show, Chelsea gave her refreshingly honest opinions regarding sex and relationships, and even discussed her abortion at 16. She explained that to her being sexually free isn't about sleeping around, even describing her sexual life as "conservative" since in her 30s she only has sex in monogamous relationships. Chelsea went on to emphasize that she's not judgmental about sex, saying, "I think that everyone should be having it as much as they want." Watch the clip now.
In her memoir out Feb. 22, Once Upon a Secret, former John F. Kennedy intern Mimi Alford spills all the secrets she's kept under wraps about her 18-month affair with the president. And she gave us a taste of the intimate details disclosed in the memoir in her interview last night with NBC's Meredith Vieira as well as on the Today show this morning.
At only 19 years old, Mimi was a virgin before having her first sexual encounter with JFK on the fourth day of her internship. And then over the course of their liaison there were other sordid moments, including multiple times when JFK asked her to perform oral sex on other men . . . with him watching. While Mimi stands by the fact that the sexual relationship was consensual, I can't help but feel like this was a much older man in a high position of authority taking advantage of a young, naive woman. And it sounds a lot like sexual harassment, even verging on rape. Watch her discuss losing her virginity to the former president, in his wife Jackie Kennedy's bed, no less — and tell us if this was an abuse of power or worse in the comments.
Ellen DeGeneres aired a message today to anyone who takes issue with her sexuality: "haters are motivators." After JC Penney signed on the talk-show host as its new spokeswoman, the "conservative, pro-family" group One Million Moms called for a boycott. Ellen told her audience, "This organization doesn't think that I should be the spokesperson because I'm gay. For those of you who are just tuning in for the first time, it's true. I'm gay. I hope you were sitting down." The group had released a statement accusing JC Penney of "jumping on the pro-gay bandwagon" by hiring Ellen. But as Ellen pointed out, "Being gay or pro-gay isn't a bandwagon. You don't get a free ride anywhere. There's no music. Occasionally we'll sing 'We Are Family,' but that's about it." Watch Ellen look over the support she's received from her fans and explain her traditional values now in this moving, and of course humorous, clip.
