Dear Wendy: My Husband Can’t Cut The Apron Strings

I am 24 and have been married for about 2 1/2 years. Since getting married, we have visited my husband's parents, who live about 45 minutes away, at least once a week, including practically every weekend. My husband and I both work full time and weekends are really the only downtime that we have together.

Hot Right Now: Bird Skull Jewelry

My first encounter with bird skull jewelry came a few weeks ago at a motorcycle/clothing/coffee (I know, weird combo) shop in the West Village. The ring was sterling silver and the bird skull cast was the perfect length for my finger, but the ring itself was too big. Much to my dismay, the smallest size…

The Fashion Peacekeepers: Ophelia Lovibond Is One Risky Ingenue

Sometimes we feel like E!'s “The Fashion Police” and other similar style critics can be a tad harsh. Also, they tend to have these really boring, conservative styles and we have to wonder what their real fashion credentials are. (Case in point: US Weekly‘s “Top Cops” include random comedian Stefanie Novik and Chet Cannon of…

The Genius Life Advice I Take From Kenny Rogers’ “The Gambler”

The other day I was attempting to organize my closet, but I wasn't really getting anywhere: I have way too much stuff and I don't like to get rid of anything, because I know the moment I do, it will come back in style. I've held on to almost everything, even a pair of high-waisted…

Britney’s New Video For “3” Is Hot

Just as suspected. Britney Spears just released the video for her new song "3," which you've probably been hearing everywhere since it's sitting at the top of the Billboard music chart.

20 Ways To Spend Your Extra Hour This Weekend

Sad news, everyone: this may be Halloween weekend, but it's also the weekend Daylight Saving Time ends and months of dreary cold and sunless days begin.

Man Sends Nakey Pics Of His Ex As His Christmas Card

It’s natural to want to get revenge on an ex after he breaks your heart. But please don’t get any ideas this holiday season from Tennessee man David Simmons. David didn’t send sprigs of mistletoe or burn his ex-girlfriend’s clothing under the tree or anything moderately psycho like that. He had a far more cheerful…

The Kaiser Loves Cotton Candy

Isn't it kind of fun to see fashion gods like Chanel designer Keiser Karl Lagerfeld doing Normal People Things? Like eating sugar and chemicals (by which we mean cotton candy) in motorcycle gloves on the boardwalk? Racked like the idea of it and consequently asked readers to submit pictures of designers photoshopped into…

Want To Eat Dinner With Bella And Edward?

OK, I'll admit that the Twilight obsession has officially gone too far. [The Robert Pattinson panties didn't do it? -- Editor] Personally, I'm a total sucker (heh) for the whole vampire trend.

Dating Amelia: For Once I’m Not Being A Complete And Total Spaz

A wise Mind of Man once told me, "Generals are always prepared to fight the last war." People -- well, OK, I -- try and work through the crap of their last relationship with the person they're with currently. This, I think, explains why, for the better part of my adult life, I have…

Rampaging Ewoks Cause Drunken Melee On “The Today Show”

Today, all the morning shows did their homages to Halloween, including "The Today Show," where Al Roker and company got all "Star Wars" and mistakenly invited some unruly ewoks to the party. Are the ewoks drunk, sober? Children, midgets? Kidding, out of control? Whatever the heck went down, it made for some amusing TV.
