Frisky Rant: When Will People Realize Drunk Driving Kills?

We have this really annoying habit as humans of thinking we’re invincible or that the one tragic thing that could happen in a situation won’t happen to us. Nowhere else is this more evident than with the drunk driver. Rarely does the driver set out to kill — he/she only wants to ride the high…

Huffington Post Delivers Celebs’ Pores And Pimples Up Close

The Huffington Post recently introduced a new entertainment feature called The Big Picture, starring “unedited celebrity photos, blown up,” ostensibly so visitors can inspect the size of Lindsay Lohan, Elizabeth Hurley and Sting’s pores and comment on who could use a facial or plastic surgery. (Disclosure: I used to work at HuffPo.) “[The Big Picture…

The Hello Kitty Cruella De Vil

We’re not so sure this Hello Kitty jacket, worn by Elen Rives, was the best way to celebrate the brand’s 35th anniversary. You can’t really wear Hello Kitty unless she’s dead, right? [London, 10/29/09]…

Are You Into Men With Mutton Chops?

So, last night I had a date with a guy who showed up with mutton chops. Three weeks ago he did not have them. And now he does.* Sigh.

The man who can pull off exaggerated sideburns is a rare breed, but it seems, guys really like to go for it several times i…

Violence Against Women On TV Is Increasing

Do you scratch your head when people shriek about sex being too graphic on TV when someone is getting punched or shot before every commercial break? Yeah, me too. A new study by the Parents Television Council (granted, a conservative organization) should have everyone concerned. It counted over 400 acts of violence against women and…

5 Horrifying Things You’ll Learn When Moving In With A Guy

I’ve lived with several women, and I don’t blame them for moving out as soon as they became aware of my idiosyncrasies. I don’t even blame them for leaving their cats behind, as long as they don’t blame me for giving the cats away (by opening my kitchen door and yelling at them).

Here…

Teenage Burglars Used Their Tabloid Smarts To Rob 10 Celebrities

We’re all relieved that Rachel Bilson may soon get her jeans back—I just don’t know if she’ll want them now that they’ve been worn by someone else. We’re also glad that Paris Hilton has already picked up of big chunk of the $2 million-worth of jewelry stolen from her home. In September, we reported that…

Swingin’ Cocktails: How To Get Don Draper Drunk

Sally Draper is an inquisitive little girl. “Where is daddy going?” “Why is mommy crying?” “How do you make a Mai Tai?” Ah, kids can be so cute! Especially when they’re trying to play little bartender, like in these awesome cocktail cheat sheets. Illustrated by Dyna Moe, the official show artist who has…

Seventeen Magazine Doesn’t Do Much To Encourage Compassion For Transgender Teens

In the upcoming issue of Seventeen there’s a story about a young woman who discovered that her boyfriend was actually a female. While I think it’s cool that a traditional teen magazine like Seventeen is covering the existence of transgender teenagers, which wouldn’t have happened when I was reading the mag back in the day.

Beauty Trend We Heart: Flecked Nail Polish

If you have an unbearable case of nail ennui, here’s the cure: flecked nail polish. Deborah Lippmann has been leading this trend with her 10th Anniversary Set, which contains three bedazzled shades (red, copper and black), and her holiday shades (multi-colored Happy Birthday (left) and silvery Marquee Moon), $18 each. Kinda spendy but we love…

Dating Don’ts: What You Should Know If You Insist On Being The Other Woman

Like the David Letterman Debacle wasn’t bad enough, now we have the story of Steve Phillips, the ESPN analyst, who had an affair with a 22-year-old coworker. Unfortunately for the 46-year-old sports dude and married father of four, his latest dalliance (and apparently there’ve been many before her) turned into a bunny boiler when he…

Elvira: Then And Now

Does anyone around here remember Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, the valley girl/goth goddess who introduced B horror films on “Movie Macabre”? (Maybe, if your parents were cool enough to let you stay up and watch that much cleavage scary movies on late night TV.) Cassandra Peterson has been making the morning news rounds since…

Always Wanted Robert Pattinson’s Head In Your Crotch?

Most heartthrobs get panties thrown at them. Robert Pattinson just gets panties. Hey, if your tampon leaks, Panties Pattinson can have actual blood dribbling down his chin! [Robert Pattinson Life]…

How Long Does It Take To Get Over An Ex?

A new study says it takes the typical person 17 months and 26 days to feel ready to move on after a divorce, which got me thinking: How long does it take to get over a regular ol’ breakup (you know, one that doesn’t require lawyers)? The answer, of course, is that there isn’t one…
