As Katy Perry and John Mayer touchingly reunited this Memorial Day (and thank goodness!), Lena Dunham drew conservative ire for the zillionth time with a dynamic duo of pee-related tweets. Her punishment was swift and severe.
Enraged conservative writer Noel Sheppard blasted Ms. Dunham’s tweet as a searing indictment of “liberal Read More
Guys, have you wondered what sort of cleanse Gwyneth Paltrow is endorsing for the new year? Is it Diet Detox? Her patented Colon Cleanse? The Clean Program?
