“The M-word”: it comes to our attention here at Mediaite that Mitt Romney has successfully avoided the topic of Mormonism. No one else seems to push it much, either. Not a single moderator in any of the 20 debates this season has brought it up, despite the fact that roughly half of Republican voters know “little to nothing” about it. At what point will people start asking questions, to investigate Mormonism’s potential influence on Romney’s potential presidency? Frank Rich argued in New York Magazine story that Mitt’s greatest passion is something he’s determined to keep secret.” Is that true? For the full post, click here.
From Gossip Cop: Robert Pattinson looks bored. At least, of the Twilight movie series, commenting that he’s “too old” for that role at this point. Judging by the fact that the last installment of the Twilight series reached a grossing point of 700 million dollars last month, I think it’d be safe to say this: no one else would be bored, Mr. Pattinson, if you made another vampire movie. Read about it (and look at some pictures) here.

From Styleite: Sh*t Fashion Girls Say…At New York Fashion Week! Yup, it’s another one of those videos, and it’s funny.

“Derek Chisora slaps Vitali Klitschko at weigh-in, will probably regret slapping Vitali Klitschko at weigh in.” From Sportsgrid, we gather that England’s Chisora, the “underdog” of the two heavyweights, might’ve had an underlying motive here. He’s 5 inches shorter than Klitschko with a much shorter reach. Some speculation frames the slapping as a kind of diversion from a match he seemed likely to lose.

Would you wear these pants, The Mary Sue asks? Heard that using your laptop on your lap give you a little dose of radiation? If that’s true, then you should wear these pants. Isn’t it also just annoying, taking your laptop off your legs when you have to get up? With a new pair of technologically advanced jeans, your keyboard never has to leave your lap! What about a hoodie with earbuds for strings? Yes, these are available, too. No joke. Read about it here.
From The Jane Dough: want to live vicariously in Petra Ecclestone’s $85 million dollar apartment? Have a closet “designed to resemble a boutique”? Fortunately, she actually let the people at W inside the mansion, so you can at least see pictures. And then wish you lived there yourself. Read the full post here.
