8. Lindsay Lohan’s Court Room Attire
What’s right with Lindsay Lohan? Not her courtroom attire, according to the NY Times’ Gloria Allred who said “She walks into court like a movie star; apparently she hopes to be one”.

7. Matthew Williamson Kind of Disses Kate Middleton
Matthew Williamson was quoted at a party saying “Kate isn’t a fashion bunny. I don’t know why everyone in fashion is waiting to see what she wears. I’m, like, thinking: get over it.” Hate to say it, but I kind of agree! Let’s not turn her into a political figure that the fashion paparazzi over scrutinizes (cough, Michelle Obama) and focus on her other qualities like her benefits to charity.
6. Mattel Waxing/Shaving Doll Causes Controversy
And you thought Bratz dolls were terrifying. These monster dolls are way worse and causing more controversy not just in appearance (that’s a preeetty hiked up skirt the shewolf is donning) but in the message these dolls send to kids. “My hair is worthy of a shampoo commercial, and that’s just what grows on my legs. Plucking and shaving is definitely a full-time job but that’s a small price to pay for being scarily fabulous,” reads the character description of the teen werewolf doll, who also lists her favorite hobby as “flirting with boys.”
5. Chicken Pot Pie is Anna Wintour’s Favorite Dish
Anna Wintour has a favorite food? “It’s Anna Wintour’s favorite dish because it’s quick to serve and moves things right along,”said her private chef, Hank Tomashevski. “It’s got everything you need in there, vegetables and a meat for meat-eaters, in one course.”
4. UCLA Student’s Racist Youtube Video Rant
UCLA student Alexandra Wallace, annoyed over Asians talking on their cellphones in the library, took her anger out onto the youtubes by doing a “ching chong ling long ting tong” impression. While everyone watching this MySpace beauty with the fried out hair and push-up bra rolls their eyes thinking “Oh helllllll naw”, she then says that these Asians must be calling all their relatives from “the Tsunami thing”. She then calls herself the polite, nice American girl her mama raised her to be. Yes, that’s a WTF for you. You’ve probably already seen the UCLA Student’s Racist Youtube Video Rant, so instead check out this song by Jimmy Wong.
