Walmart Apologizes for "Fat Girl Costumes" Label on Website

Walmart is yet to apologize for these 37 ridiculous people who have frequented its aisles at some point in the recent past.

But the global chain has come out and said it’s very sorry for offering Halloween costumes to “Fat Girls.”

Earlier today, online customers were aghast to see the retailer labeled a section of its adult plus-size Halloween outfits as “Fat Girl Costumes.”

Fat Girls at Walmart

An influx of negative responses turned “Fat Girl Costumes” into a trending topic on Twitter, with one user summing up everyone’s feelings thusly:

“Walmart took it to another level today with their ‘fat girl costumes’ section on their website. Disappointed and flabbergasted.”

In response to the controversy, a spokesperson for Walmart has issues the following statement:

This never should have been on our site. It is unacceptable, and we apologize. We are working to remove it as soon as possible and ensure this never happens again.”

The section of the website has since been revised to read “Women’s Plus-Size Halloween Costumes.”

Slutty Corn


You’ll wanna take your time while picking these kernels from between your teeth!

Last year, Target was also forced to apologize after it listed a plus-sized dress as available in manatee gray.

Seriously, Webmasters, this stuff isn’t hard to not get to horribly and offensively wrong.

Paul Rudd Helps Take Down Homophobe in Dallas Airport?!

We may not get to see Paul Rudd as Ant Man until July of 2015, but if the latest Internet rumor is to be believed, the beloved funny man is already showing off his heroic side.

A video showing a young man shouting homophobic slurs and then physically assaulting another passenger in a Dallas airport has been making the rounds online since last week.

But it was only today that some eagle-eyed YouTubers noticed that one of guys who jumps in to subdue the a-hole looks an awful lot like Paul Rudd.

As to whether or not that’s actually Rudd, well…there’s been a good deal of debate.

It’s impossible to tell from the blurry screen grabs if that’s Rudd or just another handsome, bookish dude you’d happily take home to mom.

Paul Rudd Screen Shot

Several websites expressed their doubts, and Huffington Post even went so far as to contact a woman who had tweeted about seeing Rudd earlier in the day, to see if his outfit matched the one he was wearing in the video.

She replied that he was, in fact, wearing a blazer and plaid shirt, but since that’s pretty much the standard Paul Rudd uniform, it doesn’t really prove anything.

If it turns out to be Rudd, this could be the best unexpected heartthrob hero moment since Ryan Gosling broke up that fight in NYC. 

Your move, DiCaprio. You better hope some kittens fall into a well or something, ASAP.

UPDATE: Sadly, it’s been confirmed that P-Rudd was not in Dallas the day of the incident. Sigh. Makes sense when you think about it. If it had been Rudd, he could’ve just blinded the dude with a spritz of Sex Panther.

Really? Yes, I do. Um...I'm sorry, it's the...it's the pleats. Mm. It's actually an optical...

Veronica: Mr. Burgundy, you have a massive erection.
Rob Burgundy: Really? Yes, I do. Um…I’m sorry, it’s the…it’s the pleats. Mm. It’s actually an optical illusion. It’s the pattern on the pants. It’s not flattering in the crotchal region. I’m actually taking them back right now. Taking them back to the pants store. Well I’m gonna go walk it off. Don’t act like you’re not impressed!


Veronica: Mr. Burgundy, you have a massive erection. Rob Burgundy: Really? Yes, I do. Um…I’m sorry, it’s the…it’s the pleats. Mm….

Corey Gamble: Getting It On with Kris Jenner?

According to recent reports, Bruce Jenner is now dating Ronda Kamihira, the long-time personal assistant and best friend of his ex-wife.

Kris Jenner has allegedly responded to this unexpected hook-up by crying herself to sleep every night, but TMZ now claims that she’s been doing something else in bed every night as well.

Or someone else, we should say: Corey Gamble.

Corey Gamble with the Kardashians

As depicted in the Instagram photo above, Gamble (who works as a road manager for Justin Bieber) accompanied Kris and her family to Las Vegas this weekend in order to celebrate Kim Kardashian’s 34th birthday party.

Insiders tell TMZ that the relationship between Gamble and Jenner is “not serious,” though they do acknowledge that some kind of romance is in the air.

“I wouldn’t say they’re dating yet,” a source says of Gamble and Jenner, clearly implying that there’s something going on.

How could there not be? Look at the others in that picture: Kanye, Kendall, Kylie, Kim, etc. This was very much a family affair and Kris felt it proper to include Corey Gamble as part of her family.

Hmmmmm.

She agreed to Keeping Up with the Kardashians...


… as a way to promote her family’s clothing boutiques. She brought the idea to E! with the help of Ryan Seacrest.

The Good Wife Season 6 Episode 6 Recap: The God Test

Sunday night on The Good Wife Season 6 Episode 6, Alicia continued to move forward with her campaign while facing heightened scrutiny regarding her atheism.

Johnny Elfman gets our protagonist an interview with Pastor Jeremiah, obviously a very religious man and one with a lot of questions, giving her a rare opportunity.

One of the best scenes of The Good Wife Season 6 Episode 6 was Alicia turning to her daughter Grace for support and wonderful mother and daughter bonding.

Drawing strength from that exchange, the interview ends up turning out quite well for Alicia, who passes the God test, if you will, with a strong performance on camera.

Meanwhile, Diane evicts Lockhart Gardner & Canning from their office space. Alicia and Diane move into the space with the former sitting at Will’s old desk.

The week’s case involved economic espionage, not something that you would think would be compelling drama, but remember what show this is.

If you watch The Good Wife online, you know what they can do with seemingly dense and non-sexy material, and this week’s episode hit the mark.

In a continuation of last week’s storyline, Alicia teamed with Elsbeth to take on AUSA Josh Perotti, using Perotti’s affection for Elsbeth to their advantage.

Perotti, off his game in the courtroom, ends up sleeping with Elsbeth on her desk, so who said this had to be entirely non-sexy? Oh wait, that was us.

Our bad there. In any case, Kalinda found and Elsbeth turned over a crucial invoice that got the case dismissed and sent Perotti back to Washington DC.

Meanwhile, a stressed out Cary takes the day off from work and ends up getting drunk and picks up a woman at a bar, a decision that has negative consequences.

The service officer assigned to him learns that he was in violation of his bail terms crossing state lines into Indiana, which lands him in front of a judge.

That violation was inadvertent, yes, but the officer recommends he wear an ankle monitor, be subject to curfew and most significantly, stay away from Kalinda.

As usual, it was a solid installment that evoked the past, both in terms of Will’s passing and Alicia’s comments about religion hurting her political aspirations.

All while building toward a terrific sixth season and possibly beyond. Well done as always by The Good Wife showrunners on a drama you can’t miss.

Oscar Taveras Dies in Car Accident; St. Louis Cardinals Outfielder Was 22

Oscar Taveras, one of the most promising young players in Major League Baseball, was killed today in a car accident in his native Puerto Rico.

He was 22 years old.

Taveras’ girlfriend also died in the accident, according to police in Puerto Plata.

Taveras debuted with the St. Louis Cardinals this season and batted .239 in 80 games. He was scheduled to compete for a lot more playing time next year.

The rising star was heading from Jameo to his hometown of Sosua, though few other details regarding the crash have been released.

“We’re still investigating at the scene. We’ve had some heavy rainfall here lately. It might have contributed to the accident,” said Lieutenant Junior Lopez Reyes of the Puerto Plata police.

Cardinals General Manager John Mozeliak released a brief statement in which he expressed grief and shock, writing:

“Obviously, we have deep condolences to his family. We are still waiting for more details before issuing a full statement.”

Paul Walker


Paul Walker died in a car accident on November 30, 2013. He left behind a daughter and a burgeoning film career.

Taveras started the 2014 season as number-three on MLB.com’s list of top 100 prospects. He hit a home run in his major league debut against the San Francisco Giants and hit a game-tying round-tripper against the Giants in Game 2 of the National League Championship Series this month.

We send our thoughts and prayers to his loved ones.

Dean McDermott: I’m Not a Monster (or the First Guy to Ever Cheat on His Wife)!

Dean McDermott says he isn’t proud of cheating on Tori Spelling, but hey, he’s also not the first guy to ever pull such a move, so give him a break, will ya?

In an interview with ET Canada, the True Tori star and King of Excuses feels bad for himself and manages to make everything about himself, as usual:

Dean and Tori

“When you’re at the checkout and you look over and you see one of these magazines and it’s like, ‘Dean McDermott’s a monster,’ I’m like, ‘No, I’m not a monster.'”

“I’m a human being and I messed up. I messed up and I’m owning up to it and I’m getting help for it. But to label me a monster or evil is very hurtful.”

“You know, I’m not the first person to ever cheat on his wife.”

That’s a great point, Dean. Why didn’t we think of that?!

If you watch True Tori online, you know the entire premise is Dean messing around with Emily Goodhand last winter while on a business trip to Canada.

He got busted, and a lot of people thought the entire charade was fake, but at the very least, Tori Spelling decided to make lemonade out of Dean’s lemons.

Two things we can guarantee you are completely real:

  • Tori Spelling is so obsessed by fame, appearances and so on that it is literally killing her (she was just hospitalized for a nervous breakdown).
  • Dean is a pathetic, unstable, alcoholic, self-absorbed, enabler who thinks only of his own “needs” and manipulates people to get them.

Not a monster, though. Let’s make that clear okay?

The parents of poor Liam, 7, Stella, 6, Hattie, 3, and Finn, 2, return for a new episode next week. What’s to come on True Tori Season 2 Episode 2?

Sounds like pretty much a lot more of the same.

Dean says of the vacation they recently took, “I thought we’d be able to bring that feeling back and maybe start working on simplifying our lives here.”

“But a lot of the emotional stuff changed when we came back to the house,” he adds. “I was surprised and I was really hoping that we could carry it over.”

“It didn’t go that way, so it did surprise me.”

Considering that Dean just goes through the motions of marriage until someone or something else comes along that pleases Dean, it does not surprise us.

As for wife Spelling being quarantined?

“Everything is okay. All the tabloids are reading Ebola and it’s not,” McDermott said of her health scare. “The show we’re shooting is obviously very emotional.”

“It’s six days a week. It finally caught up with her and took its toll, so she has bronchitis, sinusitis, and pneumonia and she’s getting great care at the hospital.”

Here’s hoping Tori’s health improves and that these two characters eventually find what they’re after … whatever that is. We’re not sure even they know.

Tori and Dean Moment


Tori and Dean share a touching moment. So much to say about these two.

Tamar & Vince Season 3 Episode 1 Recap: Welcome to the Tour de Tamar!

Thursday night’s Tamar & Vince Season 3 Episode 1, the return of the Braxton Family Values spinoff, took us along on her latest tour. What did we learn there?

As we know from the Family Values, the Braxton sisters live by a go big or go home mantra. Or so it often seems, and it has done a lot for them clearly.

But did protagonist Tamar bite off more than she can chew in this case?

On Tamar & Vince Season 3 Episode 1, she sets a very ambitious agenda for herself and her man, placing them both under a great deal more stress than usual.

What was that, exactly, and how did they cope with all that this entails?

With Vince by her side at all times, the R & B artist is set to launch her first tour as the headline act, and at the same time she is still working on a new album.

Oh, and did we mention the talk show she is now one of the hosts of?

Yeah. To say they have a lot on their respective plates would be a given, and we see the two struggle a bit to find the right work and life  balance.

Marriage, parenthood, careers. It’s a tough act to juggle ‘em all, guys.

Will they come through stronger in the end, or just keep fighting more than ever, doomed to fall into a pattern from which their relationship might not escape?

You’ll have to watch Tamar & Vince online to check out the premiere for yourself and see, but you can bet that for the duo, this is very much a work in progress.

Craig Spencer, NYC Ebola Doctor, Tests Positive For Disease

Dr. Craig Spencer, who recently returned from Guinea, has tested positive for the Ebola virus, making him New York City’s first diagnosed patient.

Spencer, 33, was taken to Bellevue Hospital on Thursday after reporting a “fever and gastrointestinal symptoms,” city officials said in a statement.

A preliminary test confirms that the doctor contracted the deadly Ebola virus. Another test will be conducted by the Centers for Disease Control.

Doctors Without Borders, with whom he had been participating in treating the virus in Africa, confirmed that one of its own contracted Ebola yesterday:

“A person in New York City, who recently worked with Doctors Without Borders in one of the Ebola-affected countries in West Africa, notified our office this morning to report having developed a fever.”

“As per specific guidelines Doctors Without Borders provides its staff on return from Ebola assignments, the individual engaged in regular health monitoring and reported this development immediately.”

New York health officials are currently working to track down who Spencer may have had contact with since returning to the United States October 14.

At a press conference, Mayor Bill de Blasio said that the doctor is cooperating with officials to help them reconstruct his activities over the past few days.

According to a rough timeline provided by city officials, Spencer’s symptoms developed Wednesday, prompting him to isolate himself in his apartment.

When he felt worse Thursday, he and his fiancée made a joint call to authorities to detail his symptoms and his travels. EMTs in full Ebola gear arrived.

One potential concern? Spencer took the subway from Manhattan into Brooklyn on Wednesday night, just a day before he reported a fever from the virus.

There, the “dedicated humanitarian” went to a bowling alley, then took a cab home. His Harlem apartment on West 147th Street has since been sealed off.

The international ER doctor works at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center. He had not seen any patients or been to the hospital since his return.

Spencer “went to an area of medical crisis to help a desperately underserved population. He is a committed and responsible physician who always puts his patients first.”

Texas nurses Nina Pham, 26, and Amber Vinson, 29, remain hospitalized, though the latter has been declared Ebola-free. Get well soon, Craig.

Zelda Williams Honor Late Father with Hummingbird Tattoo

Zelda Williams has come up with a new way to honor her father.

The daughter of Robin Williams, who tragically took his own life on August 11, debuted a permanent reminder of her dad on Instagram this week.

It’s a tattoo of a hummingbird in flight on her right hand, and it’s inked above her father’s birthdate, 7/21/51.

Note that she did not include his date of death.

“For poppo,” Williams captioned the image, adding:

“I’ll always put my hand out to shake with a smile” and then thanking the tattoo artist responsible for “so beautifully bringing my reminders to life.”

Zelda Williams, 25, was forced to quit social media for awhile just a couple days after her father’s suicide because she was harrassed by those who took umbrage with Robin Williams hanging himself.

She has since spoken out sporadically about her father’s passing, including on World Mental Health Day (October 10) when she urged people suffering from depression to seek assistance.

“Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known,” she wrote at the time.

“And while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again.”
