One big, happy family

Minnelli and Gest want kids "of all races"; J.Lo's smell will soon be our smell; Seinfeld dispenses with modesty; Eminem and Geri Halliwell hit the lanes together!

Liza Minnelli and David Gest’s unconventional and overpopulated wedding on Saturday was, it seems, a mere preview of what their life together has in store.

“We are adopting four children … of all races, a black child, a white child … it doesn’t matter at all,” Gest reportedly told OK! magazine, which paid big bucks for exclusive photo rights to the lavish nuptials, attended by 1,500 of the couple’s very best friends, from Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Jackson and Diana Ross to Phyllis Diller, David Hasselhoff and Robert Goulet.

Gest, 48 and a … um … bachelor until he headed to the altar at New York’s Marble Collegiate Church this weekend, believes the new little missus, 56 and now on her fourth marriage, really deserves to have kids.

“Liza is going to be the best mother in the world,” Gest gushed. “She has the greatest heart of anyone I’ve ever met.”

And he’s apparently met a lot of people.

Like Bowie … only less British and more buff

“I made one British movie musical in 1986, ‘Absolute Beginners.’ However, in the transatlantic version, although they did not touch my singing voice, they dubbed my speaking voice. In the American version my speaking voice is changed with an American accent, and it is much lower and, I suppose, more forceful.”

David Bowie on how he was made to sound like a young American in his last attempt at a movie musical, to celebrity researcher Baird Jones at the opening of the Julian Schnabel show last week at Larry Gagosian gallery in New York.

Will they call it J.L’eau?

Sniff-sniff, what’s that smell? Why, it’s Jennifer Lopez.

You might not think the singer-actress best known for the size of her butt would be the best basis for a new fragrance, but European cosmetics maker Lancaster obviously sees (smells?) things differently. The company has just signed Lopez to front a new scent “designed to reflect the inspirational, confident and desirable qualities of Jennifer Lopez herself.”

We can’t think of what those desirable qualities would be at the moment, but we’re sure they’ll come to us any second now.

So much for humility

“It’s one of the most original attempts on network television since I went off the air.”

Jerry Seinfeld on “The Colin Quinn Show” in the New York Post.

Em’s new No. 1 fan?

A new one for the odd-couple files: Geri Halliwell and Eminem?

The U.K. Sun reports that the ex-Spice Girl and the spicy rapper have struck up a deep and meaningful friendship of late, meeting up regularly for bowling dates and intimate lunches and dinners.

“You wouldn’t expect them to have much in common,” one source told the tabloid, “but their relationship seems to work.”

Of course, it may all be perfectly innocent fun. “Geri is having a great time,” says the source. “Who knows whether it will lead to romance?”

Not me.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and Adam, "Pilot"

    One of our first exposures to uncomfortable “Girls” sex comes early, in the pilot episode, when Hannah and Adam “get feisty” (a phrase Hannah hates) on the couch. The pair is about to go at it doggy-style when Adam nearly inserts his penis in “the wrong hole,” and after Hannah corrects him, she awkwardly explains her lack of desire to have anal sex in too many words. “Hey, let’s play the quiet game,” Adam says, thrusting. And so the romance begins.

    Marnie and Elijah, "It's About Time"

    In an act of “betrayal” that messes up each of their relationships with Hannah, Marnie and Elijah open Season 2 with some more couch sex, which is almost unbearable to watch. Elijah, who is trying to explore the “hetero side” of his bisexuality, can’t maintain his erection, and the entire affair ends in very uncomfortable silence.

    Marnie and Charlie, "Vagina Panic"

    Poor Charlie. While he and Marnie have their fair share of uncomfortable sex over the course of their relationship, one of the saddest moments (aside from Marnie breaking up with him during intercourse) is when Marnie encourages him to penetrate her from behind so she doesn’t have to look at him. “This feels so good,” Charlie says. “We have to go slow.” Poor sucker.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Shoshanna and camp friend Matt, "Hannah's Diary"

    We’d be remiss not to mention Shoshanna’s effort to lose her virginity to an old camp friend, who tells her how “weird” it is that he “loves to eat pussy” moments before she admits she’s never “done it” before. At least it paves the way for the uncomfortable sex we later get to watch her have with Ray?

    Hannah and Adam, "Hard Being Easy"

    On the heels of trying (unsuccessfully) to determine the status of her early relationship with Adam, Hannah walks by her future boyfriend’s bedroom to find him masturbating alone, in one of the strangest scenes of the first season. As Adam jerks off and refuses to let Hannah participate beyond telling him how much she likes watching, we see some serious (and odd) character development ... which ends with Hannah taking a hundred-dollar bill from Adam’s wallet, for cab fare and pizza (as well as her services).

    Marnie and Booth Jonathan, "Bad Friend"

    Oh, Booth Jonathan -- the little man who “knows how to do things.” After he turns Marnie on enough to make her masturbate in the bathroom at the gallery where she works, Booth finally seals the deal in a mortifying and nearly painful to watch sex scene that tells us pretty much everything we need to know about how much Marnie is willing to fake it.

    Tad and Loreen, "The Return"

    The only sex scene in the series not to feature one of the main characters, Hannah’s parents’ showertime anniversary celebration is easily one of the most cringe-worthy moments of the show’s first season. Even Hannah’s mother, Loreen, observes how embarrassing the situation is, which ends with her husband, Tad, slipping out of the shower and falling naked and unconscious on the bathroom floor.

    Hannah and the pharmacist, "The Return"

    Tad and Loreen aren’t the only ones to get some during Hannah’s first season trip home to Michigan. The show’s protagonist finds herself in bed with a former high school classmate, who doesn’t exactly enjoy it when Hannah puts one of her fingers near his anus. “I’m tight like a baby, right?” Hannah asks at one point. Time to press pause.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and Adam, "Role-Play"

    While it’s not quite a full-on, all-out sex scene, Hannah and Adam’s attempt at role play in Season 3 is certainly an intimate encounter to behold (or not). Hannah dons a blond wig and gets a little too into her role, giving a melodramatic performance that ends with a passerby punching Adam in the face. So there’s that.

    Shoshanna and Ray, "Together"

    As Shoshanna and Ray near the end of their relationship, we can see their sexual chemistry getting worse and worse. It’s no more evident than when Ray is penetrating a clothed and visibly horrified Shoshanna from behind, who ends the encounter by asking if her partner will just “get out of me.”

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and Frank, "Video Games"

    Hannah, Jessa’s 19-year-old stepbrother, a graveyard and too much chatting. Need we say more about how uncomfortable this sex is to watch?

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Marnie and Desi, "Iowa"

    Who gets her butt motorboated? Is this a real thing? Aside from the questionable logistics and reality of Marnie and Desi’s analingus scene, there’s also the awkward moment when Marnie confuses her partner’s declaration of love for licking her butthole with love for her. Oh, Marnie.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and Adam, "Vagina Panic"

    There is too much in this scene to dissect: fantasies of an 11-year-old girl with a Cabbage Patch lunchbox, excessive references to that little girl as a “slut” and Adam ripping off a condom to ejaculate on Hannah’s chest. No wonder it ends with Hannah saying she almost came.
