ELLE: If you walked into a woman’s house, what one item would convince you that you weren’t compatible?
W: If she had condoms in her house, that would just fuckin’ throw me off. That’s just tacky.
ELLE: Well, okay, I could see if she had a candy bowl full of them on the coffee table. But if she’s got a few in a drawer, wouldn’t that simply suggest she’s health-conscious?
W: I just think, like, if you’re into someone and you guys get to that level, then that’s something you should converse about together and say, “Hey, maybe we should get some.” Another pet peeve is wet sinks.
ELLE: Wet sinks?
W: Yeah, like a wet sink. You don’t wipe the sink after you use it? Dry it off! And if she’s got only dry toilet paper and no baby wipes next to the toilet. You ain’t got no baby wipes?
ELLE: I’ve heard about this particular deal breaker before. Why is that a big deal to you?
W: Here’s proof on why people should have baby wipes. Get some chocolate, wipe it on a wooden floor, and then try to get it up with some dry towels. You’re going to get chocolate in the cracks. That’s why you gotta get them baby wipes.

NBA Commissioner David Stern issued this statement:
“Kobe Bryant’s comment during last night’s game was offensive and inexcusable. While I’m fully aware that basketball is an emotional game, such a distasteful term should never be tolerated. Accordingly, I have fined Kobe $100,000. Kobe and everyone associated with the NBA know that insensitive or derogatory comments are not acceptable and have no place in our game or society.”
From the Times, a little context:
"Bryant walked to the bench, sat down and threw a towel on the ground before directing the epithet at Adams in an incident that was captured by television cameras.
As criticism grew on Wednesday, Bryant released a statement: “What I said last night should not be taken literally. My actions were out of frustration during the heat of the game, period. The words expressed do NOT reflect my feelings towards the gay and lesbian communities and were NOT meant to offend anyone.”"
To be clear, he called the ref a fucking faggot, basically. That's what no one will say in any of the stories I've read.
Just a few things to address: What's with his tote bag? And those horrible white sandals? Could he maybe just be her hairdresser or something? His name's David, that's all I know.

From a surprisingly great Spin article, the details:
"The arrest of Calvin "DJ Mister Cee" LeBrun for public lewdness and indecent exposure is a sad, but unique opportunity to continue last week's discussion about gay hip-hop and rap's longstanding homophobia. For those who hide from SEO-obsessed gossip blogs and endlessly snarky morning-zoo radio, and as a result, haven't yet heard, around 4AM on March 30, police spotted Mister Cee in his car, allegedly receiving oral sex from a man. As could've been expected, the incident soon became fodder for jokes and a mini-controversy ensued.
This Tuesday, the police report was released; it does confirm the charges, and at the very least, complicates Cee's Twitter statements that nothing happened. It's also worth noting that Cee, who is married, was arrested twice before on charges of solicitation, and that the pretty much awful Wendy Williams has been stirring up gay rumors about the DJ since 2007."
And, really well put here, the ramifications:
"To a younger generation, who may know Mister Cee only tangentially, vibing out to his mid-day mixes or torrenting his masterful 1995 mixtape Best Of Biggie Smalls, this may seem like a non-story. Mister Cee, though, is a special case. He's 44 years old and was the DJ for the legendary MC Big Daddy Kane, in addition to being the man who discovered the Notorious B.I.G and was an executive producer on Ready to Die. He's also someone whose "Throwback at Noon" show -- via an eclectic, chaotic playlist which spans decades, plus occasional knowledge-dropping interjections -- provides comprehensive hip-hop history lessons on Hot 97, the nation's most influential hip-hop and R&B station. Cee isn't just a historically significant figure; he remains a crucial gatekeeper to hip-hop's golden (and yeah, quite homophobic) era."

These comments ensued on the YouTube page:
4lyfesports: so not only does [head coach] jay triano have to deal with barnani and calderon but these fags has well?!?!?!?! its a miracle they even won 21 games!!! give him coach of the year!
ir0ckfartz: Wow, you guys are talking over the YouTube comments sections? How romantic…ha, faggs.
Creamybrown07: Little Ozzy is a hugeee fucking panzy who gets it up his ass by not only Barbosa and Reggie, but by the rest of the team, including Triano, the golden boy Colangelo, Even Gheradini! The Raptors Mascot actually ended up jizzing on Little Ozzys face, while Ozzy took it like the gay fuck he is. … Disgusting
MrDarkStalker15: I think Reggie Evans is GAY. He likes tossing the salad. Remember him grabbing Chris Kaman’s balls? I think Leandro Barbosa knows that Evans likes men holding his hand so he’s messing with him….
Sportsgrid wrote this: "None of this is surprising, of course. Anonymous internet commenting turns weak people into weak idiots. But the fact that literally every comment on the video’s YouTube page is either homophobic, or people reprimanding said homophobia, is a nice little example of how touchy a subject homosexuality is in sports."

"Country singer Blake Shelton thinks he knows why Jake Gyllenhaal ended his relationship with Taylor Swift.
Shelton co-hosted the Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas with Reba McEntire over the weekend. When Swift came up, McEntire warned: " "Don't make jokes about Taylor Swift. If you make her mad, she'll write a song about you. She writes songs about guys who break up with her.
"Which I don't understand in the first place. She's beautiful, she's talented, she's sweet. What in the world was Jake Gyllenhaal thinking anyway?”
Shelton responded by saying: "Wait a minute, he was in Brokeback Mountain." The crack prompted laughter and cheers from the audience."

I say that because I've seen his Twitter account and there are weird TwitPics of him photoshopping images that have lots of cats. I'm worried. Oh, I found this on The Berry's afternoon eye candy of hot men with cute creatures.
