What We Want To Know About Tani Gorre Cantil-Sakauye, CA Supreme Court Chief Justice Nominee

July 21st, 2010 | 5 comments | Posted by Jen

California Gov. Schwarzenegger has nominated 3rd District Court of Appeal Justice Tani Gorre Cantil-Sakauye to be the next chief justice of the California Supreme Court, which would make Cantil-Sakauye the first Asian American (and Filipina) to lead the state’s highest court, if confirmed in November.

The LA Times calls the 50 year-old Sacramento native–who’s a Republican but also known as an “independent thinker”–”a surprise nominee who is relatively unknown outside judicial circles,” so here’s what we’d like to know about her:

  1. What are her politics?
  2. What’s up with that fabu name?
  3. What kind of face cream is she using and where do we get some?!

BABEWATCH: Anna Maria Perez de Tagle

June 23rd, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Name: Anna Maria Perez de Tagle (née Anna Maria Francesca Enriquez Perez de Tagle)

Age: 18

Occupation: Actress

Why She’s a Babe: While Anna Maria is best known for her work in tween vehicles such as Hannah Montana (in which her character tortured Miley Cyrus–a plus in our book) and Camp Rock, what we love about the 18 year-old–who is of Filipino, Irish, and Spanish descent–is her knowing look. She looks like she knows something that you don’t and she may never tell you what that is. And that’s a refreshing departure from all of those tween stars past and present who withhold nothing and are constantly trying to bare all (ahem, Lindsay).

Of course we’ll eat our words if nude Anna Maria pics hacked from her cell phone ever emerge, but until that sad, desperate moment, we’ll look forward to seeing her big-screen debut in the remake of one of our fave movies of all time, Fame, so that we, along with everyone else, can remember, remember, remember her (rather long and involved) name.

AMAZIANS OF THE WEEK! Rin on the Rox

February 9th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Name: Rin on the Rox (aka Erin and Roxanne)

Occupation: Pinaysian singing sensasians

Known for: Covering contemporary Pop and R&B heavyweights like Beyoncé, Ne-Yo, and Rihanna, racking up over 2 million views on YouTube, recording in a bathroom for better acoustics, becoming a household name when they appeared on Ellen last week.

We have to admit that we love Rin on the Rox in part because they remind us of us. Not because of how they look (they’re way younger and cuter). And certainly not because of how they sing (we wish). But because they’re two giggly best friends just doin’ their thing.

Thanks, Sally!

Skanks Gotta Stick Together

The Pussycat Dolls’ Nicole Scherzinger said this week that she’d welcome Sarah Palin into her group if the Republican ticket fails in November.

“She seems like a headstrong woman, a tough chick. And she’s hot,” Scherzinger said.

And we can’t think of a better use of Palin’s talents! Especially after the last few weeks, when the VP-wannabe has demonstrated all too well that she can get down and dirty. Plus, Palin is hot, and we think she’d look smoking in a latex dress, despite her aversion to rubbers.

What to Do if You Love Trannies, Hookers, and Internet Porn?

September 26th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen


If you’re in New York or L.A., go see The Amazing Truth About Queen Raquela this weekend. This movie, a sort of fictional doc about Raquela, a transsexual dreamer from the Philippines, is filled with things DISGRASIAN loves: trannies, prostitution, Pinaysians, Internet porn, Paris, and cigarettes. The story is loosely based on star Raquela Rios’s life as a “ladyboy” in Cebu City. It is a fairytale without a fairytale ending, a story with a middle but seemingly no beginning and no end, a dream state that takes you from the Philippines to Iceland and then to France. Even if you’re not into trannies, prostitution, Pinaysians, Internet porn, Paris, and cigarettes (in which case, WTF is wrong with you?!), see Queen Raquela for its hazy verité beauty that is equal parts Lars Von Trier, Jean-Luc Godard, and Wong Kar-Wai (and any other auteur with a three word-name, which, coincidentally, Raquela‘s director, Olaf de Fleur, also has).

Ne-Yo So Sick of Britney

July 22nd, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen


Poor Brit Brit. Blasian R&B artist Ne-Yo wrote some songs for her next album but gave them instead to Nicole Scherzinger of the Pussycat Dolls after Britney had her mental meltdown last year. Ne-Yo contends that it was Britney who flaked and only got her panties-she-never-wears in a twist when she discovered that he had given the songs to Nicole.

“I heard that she was upset with me,” Ne-Yo says, “and, you know, I don’t care.”

Meanwhile, Britney is looking better these days, if a little dead/medicated in the eyes, but she doesn’t hold a candle to Nicole, who, skanky as she is, is undeniably smokin’. Here’s the one non-stripper snap of the Pinaysian Pussycat that we were able to find on the world wide web-o-sphere:


Very Maria Callas. We like.
