Happy birthday, Lisa Ling! You turned 36 earlier this week!

We’ve certainly had our fun with you in the past, but hell. The incredible poise that you showed during this difficult-and-crazy-ass year, coupled with an ongoing quest to share important stories with an audience that often cares more about Tom Cruise and free shit, topped off by the fact that you are probably the world’s best sport about web heckling–well, it gives us mad lurve for you. In fact, we’ve got goofy celebratory grins plastered across our round moon faces, just thinking about it.

Here’s hoping 36 is a year spent doing fun sister things (like TPing a neighbor’s house) and few exchanges with one of the World’s Biggest Assholes. We salute you!

We Are Cheeky Girls

We can’t tell you how much it warms our heart to know that nearly two years after we shared our foolproof cure for Moon Face, it’s finally starting to seem like the people are listening.

And by people, we mean the chick in Jen’s Facebook ad, who apparently can’t wait to finish her degree online while hoping to find a mate (the Hawaiian way)–but is still a little self-conscious about her gimongous mega-cheeks.

Sigh. Helping people in need, one day at a time. That’s the DISGRASIAN way.

Merci, mon amie!

BABEWATCH: Jessica Gomes

February 10th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Name: Jessica Gomes

Hails from: Perth, Australia

Ethnicity: Portuguesian (father is Portuguese, mother is Singaporean Chinese)

Why She’s a Babe: Being in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue two years running–in 2008 and the newly-released 2009–automatically qualifies Jessica, obvs. But even in a field of hotties–Leo DiCaprio’s GF Bar Rafaeli graces the 2009 cover–the Portuguesian model’s face stands out. And we mean that literally, because you may have noticed that homegirl’s rockin’ a moonface, and we love moonfaces, even if we sometimes try to minimize our own. Also, Entertainment Weekly gave Jessica props for “best water shot” and…wait, what the fuck is a “water shot”?!

The Good, The Bad, and The Incompetent

April 23rd, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Dear Jezebel,

Do I look like Diane Nguyen, the hot poker player?

I don’t think so. I’d like to, because she’s very slim and pretty, but I just don’t see the resemblance. Jezebel sure seems to, though!

Sure, photo source FilmMagic may have started the trouble by spelling my name incorrectly when logging my “celebrity appearance” (huh?) for Declare Yourself at Russell Simmons’s “Turn Up the Vote” event last week. And yes, I wish I hadn’t eaten so many slices of Sally’s pizza during DISGRASIAN’s visit to Yale just days before, which apparently rendered me a full-on bloatation device and unrecognizable to the public.

But FilmMagic isn’t responsible for research. They take pictures. Jezebel, however low your standards may be, is supposed to be accountable for its words. And right now, you’ve gotta be responsible for this case of mistasian identity: I am not a poker player. I don’t even know what a royal flush is without a little armagnac in me. Please, please get that fact straight the next time you’re sifting through the B-list returns from a red carpet photo-op!

We’ve begged HRC to always do her homework. Now, we ask you to do the same. Come on Jez, reprzent a little for the ladies, and prove that you aren’t as inept as we’re starting to think you are.
