Which Of These Traumatic Celebrity Halloween Costumes Will Take the Longest to Unsee?

By Dustin Rowles | Celebrities Are Better than You | November 1, 2013 | Comments ()


Good morning! I hope you had a great Halloween, and I apologize for ruining it with the image above (via People) of Honey Boo Boo and her family dressed as the Kardashians, which is the only image more upsetting than the Kardashians dresses as The Kardashians. But it could be worse. It could be Barbara Walters dressed as Katy Perry, Sherri Shepherd dressed as Daenerys Targaryen, Jenny McCarthy as Miley Cyrus’ tongue, or Whoopi Goldberg in a costume I tried not to inspect too closely.

View at your own risk.





Here’s the nightmare fuel kicker: Tony Kornheiser as Lindsey Vonn (via Deadspin).


How does that Halloween candy hangover feel now?

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    Michael Strahan in the Robin Thicke suit is strangely appealing to me. He's such a goof on that show. Which, by the way, I had no idea he was on until SNL parodied it.

  • anikitty

    I was at the gym with no sound on the tv and it took me a while to figure out who Tony Kornheiser was. He's not a pretty lady.

  • Unless they make a profession out of it, most dudes make terrible women.

  • e jerry powell


    And the best drag queens are better to have at your side in a street fight.

  • Guest

    Nice try Rowles. The header photo is a pre-Photoshopped version of the Kardashians and not the Honey Boo Boo Klan.

  • becks_

    I think the costumes on the Honey Boo Boo family are funny. I love that the kid is dressed as the Kardashian mom. She's nailing it too.

    I also think Sherri Shepherd's costume is great. Pretty spot on.

  • AngelenoEwok

    Never mind, just actually READ the post. That is pretty spot on!

  • becks_

    Yeah, I mean, she's obviously not going to look exactly like Emilia Clarke but very few of us do. She's holding her own though.

  • AngelenoEwok

    Right! I like that she went as battle-ready Dany rather than sexpot princess Dany. A bunch of people who don't look terribly like Emilia went as Dany this year. What was extra cute was folks who dressed their kids up as dragons to complete the look, like Jennifer Nettles:

  • AngelenoEwok

    Forgive my ignorance, but who is Sherri dressed as?

  • BWeaves

    OK, when you were listing the people and costumes, I seriously thought you were making those up and that it was a joke, and that completely different people and costumes would be shown in the photos. Gah!


    Cutest thing I heard last night: Little kid, "We should do this every night!"

    Second cutest thing I heard last night: Little kid, "I don't like that kind." Shouted from the sidewalk, "MOMMY DOES!"

  • Kala

    I had my suspicions, but Googled anyway. Turns out that Whoopi is The Mandarin. Phew. Don't know if I could have slept without knowing that tidbit.

    If you think this is scary, Rowles, apparently you missed the Today show yesterday. I never, ever wanted to see this much Matt Lauer. Ever.


  • zeke_the_pig

    What's happening to my computer screen?

  • bastich


  • Mrs. Julien

    Is it attempting to flee from itself?

  • zeke_the_pig

    I think it actually is. I'm having to race alongside it, typing, as we speak. Luckily, it's Friday, so I'm mildly amused as opposed to horrifyingly bewildered.
    Which is more than I can say for the effect the photos above are having.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Perhaps if you offered to follow it into a pub for a beer, it would calm down. I know you'd feel better.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Fuck the screen. If it wants to be an intransigent little whine puddle, then so be it. If not, it knows where to find me. In the pub. With a beer. Because you reminded me that that's where I'll be.

  • BlackRabbit

    Too bad screens can't be given handjobs.

  • Mrs. Julien

    You have no idea how much I wish I drank.

  • zeke_the_pig

    I'll knock back one or two for Mrs. J

  • Mrs. Julien

    I hold Whoopi Goldberg in very low esteem. She is never coming back from "it wasn't rape-rape". Never.

  • DarthBrookes

    She has a history of these kinds of attitudes. I remember her saying about the Chris Brown case that some women deserve a punch in the face and that maybe Rhianna was one of those women.

  • Mrs. Julien

    She defended Mel Gibson, too. She is the great celebrity apologist.

  • NynjaSquirrel

    Hmm, seems that's something I missed, I may have to go googling...

  • MarTeaNi

    Here's the whole statement, where she also later argues that "times have changed" and that "the world doesn't see things the same way" and basically everything to make it clear that a 45 year old man drugging and having sex with a 13 year old girl who said "no" isn't really "rape rape."


  • NynjaSquirrel

    Thanks for that - weird, I've never had a good feeling about Whoopi in anything she's done. This just gives me a reason.

  • Mrs. Julien

    She defended Roman Polanski's drugging and rape of a child with "It was rape, but it wasn't rape-rape". I believe she used air quotes for the latter portion.

  • zeke_the_pig

    'It was murder, but it wasn't murder murder, ya know? Like, yeah the victim got killed by the suspect and they're now dead, and the suspect did it, but... well, ya know. Right?!'

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    Just coming here to say that.

    This is, admittedly, sexist, but I just couldn't believe a woman would say that about the rape of a CHILD. I've never been able to look at her the same way since. No more Sister Act screenings at my house.
