Quiz Results: I Know More About The P Than I Do The V

Last night, my friend Lauren sent me a link to a quiz on Women's Health's website called "Are You A Penis Expert?" While watching "American Idol" I took the quiz -- though I assumed I, duh, was -- and was mildly pleased to get six out of nine correct. Not too shabby! Then today I…

Most of us can only dream of getting our greedy little hands on a real couture gown -- the exquisite tailoring, such rich fabric, those intricate details! -- but we can recreate the actual nails used in most runway shows. (Hey, we'll take what we can get.) For Lebanese designer Elie Saab's show in Pari…

Blind Item: Which Reality Star Got Tossed From A Jersey Club?

It's a dreary winter Thursday -- let's play the blind item guessing game! This reality star got ejected from a New Jersey nightclub on New Year's Eve after imbibing a little too much, and getting a little too jerky. Upon the unceremonious tossing, he/she started shouting, "Don't you know who I am?" So many fame-headed…

Using A Flat Iron To Make Waves? Inconceivable!

Here's a beauty riddle for you: How can you get a wavy hairstyle using a straightening iron as your main tool? (Cue "Jeopardy" music.) Stumped? Look to Diane von Furstenberg's runway hairstylist Orlando Pita, who created this romantic, wavy-crimped 'do for her spring 2010 show. The process is surprisingly easy. Using a mister to slightly…

Celebs Weigh In On Obama’s State Of The Union

Last night, while I was watching President Barack Obama's State of the Union address, I went on Twitter so I could publish my opinion about it. Now, I love politics and not many things can tear me away from the news when something important is happening. But John Mayer managed to do just that with…

Breaking News: “Graying” Kate Moss Dyes Her Hair, Probably On Purpose

We're kind of obsessed with U.K. news source The Daily Mail, but, turns out, even their classy, crackerjack team of the world's top investigative journalists get their facts wrong every now and then. Take this headline on today's paper: "Hair dye disaster for Kate Moss as she reveals greying locks at handbag launch!" Shocking indeed!

Crush Of The Day: Daren Kagasoff

The people behind the "Briefs Are Back Movement" are really intent on winning me over, aren't they? This photoshoot in VMan, of actor Daren Kagasoff, may just be check mate.

Anne Frank’s Diary Pulled Off School Shelves Over A Vagina

There's only so much stupid that a girl can handle and I shot way over my monthly allotment reading this one news story: The Diary of a Young Girl: The Definitive Edition, by Anne Frank, was pulled off the shelves in Culpepper County Public Schools in Virginia after a parent complained about "the sexual nature…

An Ode To Zelda Rubinstein

Actress Zelda Rubinstein passed away yesterday at the age of 76 of natural causes. Zelda may be most well-known as Tangina in “Poltergeist,” but as far as I’m concerned, her finest work was in a little-known film called “Teen Witch” that I was obsessed with back in the day. If you had cable in the…

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Gives Me A Stupid Stuffed Animal For Every Special Occasion!”

My boyfriend and I have been dating for five years. I feel so confused because he gives me a stupid stuffed animal for every holiday that comes around while I actually put thought into his gifts. We have no problem in our age difference (about 12 years), but lately I've been feeling as if he…

Greg Oden’s Naked Pics Leave Much To Be Desired

Greg Oden, forgive me for saying so, but, you're an idiot. Seriously, dude, you play center for the Portland Trailblazers. You should know that pics of your famous, NBA dong are going to cause a stir in the media. Didn't you learn anything from the millions of other celebs who've been super embarrassed after

How Often Do You Wash Your Jeans?

There's a special allowance when it comes to the amount of times you can wear jeans before they get thrown in the dirty pile. In my opinion, it's based on the fact that post-laundering, you'll need a few wears to get back that perfect worn-in feel before your denim becomes too loose. But interestingly, wome…

Alicia Silverstone’s Diet Will Give You Glowing Skin, Magical Bowels

Alicia Silverstone, potentially Hollywood's most devout vegan, has a new book out about her nutritional vision called The Kind Diet. Fortunately, you don't have to become a full-on kale-munching vegan to adopt Silverstone's doctrine. The plant-based regime accommodates dieters of three levels, where at the lowest, you "flirt" with the idea of veganism by making…

J.D. Salinger Has Died

Sad face. Earlier today, author J.D. Salinger passed away at age 91. Ever since he published A Catcher in the Rye in 1951, Salinger has been every successive generation's teenage hero for his spot-on description of 16-year-old disaffection. He gained further acclaim for books like Franny and Zooey (1961) and Raise High the Roofbeam, Carpenters

An Open Letter To Taylor Swift

Dear Taylor, I am writing to offer you some unsolicited advice. I heard that rumor about you and ass hat, John Mayer. Whether you are actually dating him or not (I really hope it’s just a rumor), I would like to point out that it’s a really bad idea to get involved/remain involved with him.

Girl Talk: (Not So) Independent Woman (Anymore)

Just a few years ago, I had a huge pair of balls. Big, old honkin' balls. And then I moved in with my boyfriend. He's not a particularly "Grr! I'm a man! I'm going to take care of you!" kind of guy. But he does like taking care of me, so I try to let…
