Sophia Vergara's 34DD's Banned From Diet Pepsi Skinny Can Ad


Sophia Vergara, star of Modern Family and inhabitant of a 34DD-28-39 curvaceous body, can be seen in a new ad for Diet Pepsi's new Skinny Can, some sort of twisted ode to the fact the can of chemicals will make you skinny just because the can is skinny.

In the ad Vergara's less that skinny upper body parts have been minimized by photographic angle and a freakish shoulder placement. Because, after all, women with big boobs aren't skinny. They/re top heavy. And top heavy is bad when it comes to our current culture's definition of rail thin beauty.

Some argue the ad contributes to harmful stereotypes about women's body image. We say it's simply the twisted notion that somehow big breasts equal slut and that no woman with big breasts could possibly be taken seriously simply because of the shape of her upper body. To that, we say utter nonsense.

Recording artist Rihanna is featured in a new two minute video which promotes her new line of perfume, Reb / Fleur. The first minute has Rihanna blossoming as if she were a flower.

Khloe Kardashian Fails Again in T-Mobile Disaster


Dear Khloe Kardashian,

We're sure you're a wonderful person and all but can you please stop making commercials? They are horrific. And they are destroying what little career you may have. It was bad enough you did that train wreck with Lamar for Unbreakable but this new work you've done or T-Mobile may even be worse.

Yea, yea. We know you can do anything you want because, well, you're a Kardashian. But, please. Save yourself from future embarrassment. It's easy. Just say no. It's not like you need the money or anything. And do you really want to follow in Kim's footsteps?

New GoDaddy Girl Joan Rivers Supports Same-Sex Marriage


Now that she's a GoDaddy Girl, Jon Rivers can do anything, even support gay marriage in New York. Which is exactly what she's doing in a new commercial for gay advocacy group Human Rights Campaign.

In the ad, Rivers says, "All New Yorkers believe in fairness, that's why we should support marriage equality. For goodness sakes, come on guys,"

Sadly, she looks way less hot in this commercial that she did in the GoDaddy commercial.

Khloe's Ad Far Less Hot Than Kim's


In one of the most unsexy outings we have seen in a very long time, Khloe Kardashian and husband Lamar Odom, in a fragrance commercial for Unbreakable, utter banalties like, "There's something sexy about a couple sharing a scent...that perfect mix of masculine and feminine...that sometimes the bond between two soles is truly unbreakable."

Yea, they won't be saying that when they're divorce is plastered all over Perez Hilton. Oops. Sorry. That was really mean.
