Atlantic-Pacific Presents A Reminder To Always Check Your Reflection


Looks like in her rush to post a classic bubble bath pic to Instagram, Blair Eadie of Atlantic-Pacific accidentally posted a full frontal (bits in above photo censored by me, but I assure you every inch of her was visible).

Remember kids, check those photos before you share them with the entire planet. And may I say that is quite a waxing job!

Kelle Hampton Gave A Fangirl A Gift

Happy Birthday! Enjoy my terrified child!

Happy Birthday! Enjoy my terrified child!

Kelle Hampton, has no boundaries, recently surprised a rabid fangirl for her birthday. Her gift? Her daughter, Nella.

Kelle brought her children to the fancujo’s vacation rental during the woman’s birthday party. The woman said it was hard to catch Kelle’s son Dash, who ran around as toddlers do, but she “did manage to scoop him up for a second, though, & smother him with kisses”. But her main focus was Nella.

I wanted to hold this one in my arms since the day she was born & I finally got a chance to, although all she wanted was her Mama.  To lift her up and hold & kiss her, though, was heavenly.  A dream come true.  I am so in love with this precious little girl.

The woman then commented basically the same thing on Kelle’s instagram, because heaven forbid everyone not know she got to meet the famous Hampton kid.



I don’t know about you hams, but I don’t think I’d feel comfortable producing my children for a heavily invested internet stranger to slobber over. Sure there were lots of other people around so it’s not like the woman could knock Kelle over the head and run off with Nella. But, as someone in the forum said, this sets a precedent. Now ALL her fanpoodles will want a similar opportunity.

Mommy bloggers are just so, so strange.

The Sartorialist Is Familiar With Indian Culture

Actually just a street sweeper.

Actually just a street sweeper.

Scott Schuman, the shortorialist, is living it up since his split with Garance. He’s currently traveling the world, and is sharing photos from India. Everything was buttkissing and fawning until he posted this photo, labeling the woman pictured an ‘untouchable’.

The response was immediate and full of ‘wait, wut?’ Commenters explained to him that the woman was simply a street sweeper, and basically called him an asshamper for even using the word.

Why do you invent “tragic concepts” where none exist ? If you saw her as an untouchable its in your eyes and cunning controversial mind . You are the worst myopic traveller ever and to think we Indians idolised you, lol. You are so disappointing!!!

Scott responded that he ‘didn’t just make it up. I was told that by local people I was with while shooting’ with commenters responding that ‘the term was banned and is offensive, the fact that you don’t share their culture and believes wouldn’t allow you to understand the sensitivity of the term’. Another commenter called it ‘pure discrimination’ and said ‘Didn’t know we were back in the 1700′s’.

While it’s conceivable Scott didn’t know the term would be so offensive, he has decided to dig in and defend the use of the word rather than apologize and change the caption.

Katie Vyktoriah Victimized Yet Again

Katie Vyktoriah, the mom who claimed her son was assaulted at a Wal-Mart for wearing a pink headband, is back and more victimy than ever. This time the mistreatment magnet says Comcast chased her down by phone after she complained about their downtime via twitter.

Saying she “was HELLA confused because I can’t for the life of me figure out how they got my number”, she recounts a conversation verbatim (evidently from memory), in which a customer service representative was allegedly patronizing and sexist (“By your own admission, it worked when your husband did it last night. So he can probably get it to work again.”) to the point of forcing her to hang up on the pigdog man.

I hung up the phone, absolutely amazed at the conversation I just had. I genuinely was racking my brains trying to figure out who might be prank calling me because I could not for the life of me imagine a company calling me out of the blue just to insult me and make me feel like an idiot. But before I could really think too hard about it, the phone rang again.

She claims the customer service rep’s manager immediately called her back…and, she says, asked her to move away from her screaming children because he couldn’t hear her answers before explaining to her that since they weren’t using a Comcast modem, they couldn’t really help her. But the outrage does not end there.

I’m also rather confused as to how they 1) got my telephone number and 2) knew what account I was associated with. Our internet service is 100% in Mark’s name, and with his number. THEY called ME, I assume because of the tweet I sent, and then proceeded to insult me and demand more money. They were able to view our account details, despite me never giving them any information. As far as I’m aware, from my Twitter account the only thing they should have been able to see was my name and the city I’m in.

Brilliant Katie concludes this bizarre tl;dr attempt at inciting anti-corporate outrage (she even tagged the post ‘controversy’) by saying “And people wonder why Net Neutrality is such a big issue”. She then called Hulu a “Pornographic Pool of Filth” and longed for Google Fiber.

There was no mention of threatening pizzas.

Dooce Will Reward Her Child With Cosleeping

Dooce, conqueror of October and texting injury survivor, is still single parenting since her ex allegedly adiosed to the east coast. The adjustment apparently includes continued sleep drama. But don’t worry, Il Doochay has figured out how to give her daughter the comfort of cosleeping AND get her to do things!

On Thursday nights I let Leta sleep with me as a way to reward her for the hours of homework and piano practice she’s accomplished over the course of the week. We chose Thursdays because that’s the night of her piano lesson, and it commemorates that weekly milestone.

I. Yeah. Just…can one of you moms out there tell me if this is normal? Like…the physical comfort of sleeping closeness is…a reward? I mean, I came from a family that was firmly ‘kids in their own beds’, so maybe it’s normal to reward a high strung, middle-of-a-divorce 10 year old for doing their homework by letting them share mom’s bed once a week. Maybe you moms can shed some light on that for me.

Also, the rest of the post contains security video of Dooce’s elderly neighbor knocking on her door at 4 am during a dementia episode. So, be sure not to miss that total respect of a neighbor’s privacy.
