Sandy Gas Woes Continue: People Trading Gas For Sex On Craigslist

How far would go to get gas?

Long gas stationlines and empty gas pumps have plagued drivers across New York and New Jersey since Superstorm Sandy slammed into the East Coast last Monday, leaving a gas shortage across the region.

Stories of price gouging and fights at gas stations have also been commonplace. But now it seems people — men in particular — are finding new ways to take advantage of gas-seeking Tri-State residents: Sex.
Men have been taking to the personals on Craigslist, tradinggasoline for sex. Some of the ads on NewYork.Craigslist.org read as follows:

Bill To Restrict NYC Library Porn

Two New York City councilmen said they want to introduce a bill that would make it illegal to watch porn within 100 feet of a child in the library. The legislation would make it a misdemeanor and could be punishable with up to $1,000 in fines.

Council Members David Greenfield (D-Brooklyn) and Eric Ulrich (R-Queens) are spearheading the effort to keep public libraries g-rated for minors. “The last place we should be worried about our children spending time is a public library. They are safe havens for children, and not safe havens for perverts,” said Ulrich. “It’s a violation of public decency and it shouldn’t be there to begin with.”
PIX 11 first did a story about library card holders who were watching porn in the library. It made some people very uncomfortable but the Brooklyn Library said it was legal, because it falls under First Amendment rights.

Many, however, felt it violated decency laws and could expose children to pornography that they should not be seeing.

“Walking around I often see people have it on their computers,” said an upset library visitor.

There are three library branches in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. The Queens Library has so far done the most to limit porn surfing on its computers. No matter your age, there is a filter system in place that prevents anyone from searching for illicit sites. With one caveat — if you are an adult, you can remove the filter and watch whatever you would like.

The Queens Library released a statement Monday to the PIX 11 News stating: “Customers who are viewing graphic material that is visible and disturbing to others are violating Queens Library’s behavior policy, and are told by a staff member to desist, similar to how any other behavioral disruption in the library would be dealt with.”

Sexy Spy Anna Chapman Working for Russian Bank

Anna Chapman, the former Russian spy with flaming red hair, has a new job with a Moscow-based bank.

FondServisBank issued a statement Monday saying it’s hired Chapman, 28, to help with innovation in its information technologies, The Associated Press reported. It wasn’t known if the bank was interested in her computer skills or just wanted to use her celebrity.

The bank, which works with aerospace companies, released the statement to shed light on Chapman’s appearance at the remote Baikonur cosmodrome for last week’s rocket launch taking a Russian-American crew into space.
Chapman, who posed in sexy photos of herself online, was one of 10 accused undercover spies arrested in the U.S. last summer and returned to Russia. She kept a low profile until turning up at the launch in a red peacoat, causing a stir, the AP said.

“We hope that Ms. Chapman has found a reliable partner for a number of her projects represented by the bank, while the bank itself has acquired an extremely creative and multiskilled individual who is truly concerned about the future of Russia and the problems of developing its domestic industries,” the bank said in a statement, according to CNN.

Michaele Salahi vs. Whoopi Goldberg: Real Housewives of DC Babe Attacked, Fight Got Physical?

Real Housewives of Washington, DC babe Michaele Salahi and hubby Tareq Salahi versus Whoopi Goldberg is the hot topic of the day after a heated exchange was rumored to have elevated into a physical attack at “The View” backstage.
According to the LA Times, the incident that kicked off the newest furor occurred Wednesday, when Salahi and her fellow castmates appeared on “The View” to promote their Bravo show.
According to the AP, View co-host Whoopi Goldberg wanted Salahi to discuss the night she and her husband allegedly crashed President Barack Obama’s state dinner last fall (see photo).

The wire service reports as she spoke to her, Goldberg could be seen by viewers touching Salahi’s arm.

The LA Times has a video report and adds: “According to the Salahis’ attorney, Lisa Bloom, Salahi was “unnerved” when Goldberg came up to her on stage and felt demeaned and degraded by the whole experience because of the frequent references that she was a gate crasher.”

The report claims the dramatic encounter brought Salahi to tears.

On the NBC Today Show, Salahi explained being berated by Goldberg: “I walked off the show and said goodbye and was in the back. And Whoopi came in and said, ‘F this, f that, Did you say I effing hit you?”

Whoopi reiterated on the show: “I make no apology for my choice words.”

‘Too sexy’ banker files human rights complaint (VIDEO)

Debrahlee Lorenzana, the woman who claims Citibank fired her for being “too sexy,” is taking her fight to New York’s human rights division. But her former employers say it’s just another attention grab.

A tearful Lorenzana held a press conference Monday to announce she had filed a human rights complaint against Citibank, alleging she was the victim of sexual discrimination at the Manhattan branch where she worked as a business banker before being fired, reportedly for being too attractive.
“When I first got my position with Citibank, I was excited. I had such high expectations. But when the sex discrimination started, I felt down and I felt disappointed,” said Lorenzana, her lawyer supportively holding her shoulder as she sobbed into the microphone.

“I was a target to them. There were days where I didn’t want to go to work… Many times I had to step out of the office to cry because of the unfairness of what was going on.” The single mother, who said she kept going to work because she had to support her son, first made headlines in early June, when she told the Village Voice she was launching a lawsuit against Citibank because the company fired her for her looks.

That lawsuit is now in arbitration. The human rights complaint may lead to a separate investigation.

“I hope my complaint will lead to an investigation and a positive outcome,” she said. “I don’t want what happened to me to happen to any other woman at Citibank.

She alleged her superiors forbade her from wearing turtle necks or pencil skirts and heels because they were too distracting. Other colleagues, she said, wore more revealing clothes.

“They said their body shapes were different from mine, and I drew too much attention,” she told the Village Voice in early June.

The bank maintains she was fired for her poor performance and that her lawsuit and human rights complaint are just ways of getting attention.

“Unlike Ms. Lorenzana, Citibank does not intend to try this case in the media and we reiterate that her termination was based on poor performance,” said Citibank spokeswoman Natalie Riper in a statement Monday.

“Although we can’t speak to her previous attention-seeking activities, her current attempts to gain personal publicity are as transparent as her legal claims. We remain confident that when all of the facts and documentation are presented, the claim will be dismissed.” Others have echoed Citibank’s perspective, noting that Lorenzana has been very public about her plastic surgery exploits, which include a tummy tuck, liposuction and two breast enhancements. In a Discovery Channel documentary about cosmetic medicine, Lorenzana said: “I want to look like a Playboy Playmate.” Her lawyer has argued that Lorenzana’s attractiveness, even if intentional, is no excuse for the treatment she received.

“It’s like saying … that we can’t think anymore ’cause our penises are standing up — and we cannot think about you except in a sexual manner — and we can’t look at you without wanting to have sexual intercourse with you. And it’s up to you, gorgeous woman, to lessen your appeal so that we can focus!” Jack Tuckner told the Village Voice in early June.

At the press conference, Lorenzana dismissed the significance of her Discovery Channel appearance.

“There’s nothing wrong with that,” Lorenzana said. “One thing has nothing to do with the other.”

FDA: Female Viagra Makes Women Woozy, Not Sexy

Unless becoming drowsy and woozy makes you feel sexy, a female Viagra pill is a near-total failure.
Reviewers for the Food and Drug Administration says that women who took an experimental drug called flibanserin weren’t able to stomach the medication.
Many reported depression, fatigue and fainting spells, and some even reported accidental injuries.
The FDA’s advisory panel meets today to decide whether to recommend the agency approve the drug.
Drugmaker Boehringer Ingelheim had dyed the pill pink as an answer to Pfizer’s Viagra, which is blue and famously helps treat men with sexual dysfunction.
Boehringer had high hopes for its pink pill to help pre-menopausal women who report low sex drives.
The FDA says the pill, tentatively named Girosa, helped some women have satisfying sexual experiences.
But the pill did nothing to improve their level of desire.
Boehringer said their own data showed that women who took the drug for six months saw their sexual experiences jump to four-point-five per month from two-point-eight.
But those taking placebos saw theirs jump to three-point-seven sexual encounters a month.
And 15-percent of the subjects quit taking the drug before the study ended due to the side effects.

Jessica Simpson: Why I Don’t Brush My Teeth Every Day

Jessica Simpson: so fresh and so clean?

Not so much.

The singer, 29, admits in an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show to air Wednesday that she only brushes her teeth “maybe three times a week.”

Why?

“Because my teeth are so white and I don’t like them to feel too slippery but I do use Listerine and I do floss everyday,” she explains. “But I don’t brush them every day.”
“My lips just slide all over the place….I can’t catch up with my mouth,” she continues. “I need a little coating….”

Instead, she’ll “use a shirt or something” to scrub her chompers clean.

“I know it’s gross but I always have fresh breath,” she swears. “It’s really weird but I have great breath.”

Maybe that explains why the Vh1 reality star is still single. Although she says she’s actively looking for her next guy on the down low.

“I mingle around very privately,” she tells DeGeneres. “I have ways in and out of my house and certain places that I go that are private just so I can have a normal life. I’m still out there and bring normal.”

After very public splits with John Mayer and Tony Romo, she still says it “doesn’t really matter” if her next guy is famous or not.

Her only requirements: “They definitely have to understand my life and what I put up with and what I deal with. Being scrutinized publicly… [that] can definitely make or break a relationship and you have to have that strong foundation… so I have to have somebody that understands that kind of lifestyle.”

Lady Gaga rumoured to be on the baby food diet

As many of you will know, we have nothing but admiration for Lady Gaga. However, this time she’s done something that may just be unforgivable (yes it’s worse than the writing on the designer handbag incident.)

According to Heat magazine the once curvy singer has joined the world of skinny celebrities and begun using faddy diets in order to lose weight.

And of all the celeb extreme diets to choose from (think Beyonce’s maple syrup diet) Miss G has joined the likes of Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon and embarked on the baby food diet.

A friend of Miss G’s told Heat: “Everyone is really worried about GaGa. She’s not eating healthily at all. She’s substituting meals for jars of baby food.”

People: Bullock is divorcing James, adopting baby

Sandra Bullock has filed for divorce from her husband, Jesse James, and is adopting a baby boy as a single parent.

“Yes, I have filed for divorce,” the 45-year-old Oscar-winning actress said in an interview with People magazine, posted Wednesday on its website. “I’m sad and I am scared.”

Bullock and James, 41, began the adoption process four years ago, the People article said, and brought 3 1/2-month-old Louis Bardo Bullock home in January but decided to keep the news to themselves until after the Academy Awards.

In the interview, Bullock said she is savoring her new maternal status.

“You wake up, you feed, you burp, you play, you do laundry,” she said. “I’m still in that stage where I’m just amazed with him and at life.”
“All I said when I met him was, ‘Oh, there you are.’ It was like he had always been a part of our lives.”

The baby, called Louie, is named after jazz great Louis Armstrong, who had particularly touched Bullock with his signature song, “What a Wonderful World,” she said. The child was born in New Orleans, a city where Bullock and James had both spent time after Katrina.

Bullock said she and James sought to pull no strings as they submitted to the typically time-consuming screening process, with no thoughts to the gender or background of the child they might receive.

“We somehow knew the right little person would come,” she said.

Bullock said she got the call that a baby might be available for adoption during what she described as “the media craziness of the awards season.” Deciding to shield Louis from that turmoil, she kept his arrival hidden from all but a few trusted associates and loved ones. Her life (and his) became an ongoing process of secrecy and diversion.

“Just the doctors’ visits were filled with decoys and dark cars,” she said. “People that I had worked with for years couldn’t understand why I wouldn’t let them into my house for (Oscar ceremony gown) fittings.”

James and Bullock separated in March after five years of marriage, following reports that the celebrity motorcycle builder and reality-TV star had been unfaithful.

Bullock won the Oscar for best actress for her role in the blockbuster hit “The Blind Side,” on March 7. Within days of her win, the cheating allegations became public and Bullock went into seclusion.

It was a precipitous fall from the romance resonating between them at the Golden Globes in January. Accepting her best actress award, Bullock told James from the stage, her voice cracking with emotion: “There’s no surprise that my work got better when I met you. Because, I never knew what it felt like for someone to have my back.”

After the revelations, James publicly apologized to Bullock and his children, Sunny, 6; Jesse Jr., 12; and Chandler, 15. He recently returned home after a 30-day stay in a treatment facility where he sought help for “personal issues,” the People story said.

In a statement posted on the People website, James called Bullock “the love of my life, but considering the pain and devastation I have caused her, it would be selfish to not let her go.”

He said, “The love I have for Louis cannot be put to words. Not having him around to love and to hold has left a huge hole in my heart.”

He vowed to overcome an unspecified addiction that he said has taken from him “two of the things I love the most in life.”

When asked about whether James had cheated, Bullock said she “had no idea about anything.”

“I did the only thing I could do, and that was to pack enough clothes to live on, get all of Louis’ things and get out of town. My main concern was Louis.”

When asked whether James will have any formal parenting role, she replied, “I will be adopting as a single parent. Anything else will be taken day by day.”

Of her relationship with James’ three children, Bullock said, “I don’t want to know what life is like without those kids. … Whatever we need to do, in the healthiest way, we are going to be co-parenting.”

Looking ahead to life without James, Bullock said, “I really don’t know how our paths will intersect in the future, but the father I have known Jesse to be with all the kids is one that I hope Louis can experience one day, no matter how Jesse and I go on with our lives.”

News of the adoption quickly seized the attention of Bullock watchers and fellow celebrities alike.

On Wednesday morning’s “Live! With Regis and Kelly,” host Regis Philbin held up a copy of People magazine, which shows Bullock smiling at her baby son as she holds him aloft.

“It’s not very easy to adopt a baby,” Philbin said.

He’s cute, chirped co-host Kelly Ripa.

“Lucky little guy, too,” said Philbin.

And on ABC’s “The View,” co-host Joy Behar marveled that no one, “not the Pope, not Barbara Walters,” had known about Bullock’s baby.

“But I knew.” Why didn’t she say anything? “I forgot,” Behar joked.

Many rallied to Bullock’s defense on Facebook. By midday Wednesday, more than 6,000 had clicked that they “liked” an earlier-formed group dubbed “Team Sandra Bullock!” (“Team Jesse James” had a much lower following of some 50 people on the social network.)
