Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend And I Don’t Have Anything In Common”

My boyfriend and I have had what I would describe as a happy relationship for two years now. Problem is, even though we have FABULOUS chemistry and get along great, we have nothing in common. I’m a vegan hippie-type and he’s a carnivorous couch-potato. We’re both starting to feel burnt out and frustrated at not…

Frisky Q&A: Zuzanna Szadkowski, AKA Dorota From “Gossip Girl”

A year ago at a party, I spotted a stunning woman in a tight-fitting red dress who seemed eerily familiar. I stood by the punch bowl for at least five minutes trying to place her. And then it hit me. “Wait, isn’t that Dorota from ‘Gossip Girl‘? Only in a cocktail dress rather than a…

The Warblers Croon Again On “Glee”

When Blaine (Darren Criss) and the Warblers of Dalton Academy doo-wopped Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream,” it reached number one on the Billboard chart, a “Glee” first. Do we think the same will happen for their performance of Train’s “Hey Soul Sister” this week?

Chad Ochocinco Strips For PETA

Girl Talk: I’m Uncomfortable With Grief

Maybe I can do this, I thought. But there was still a little part of me that was relieved when she left because I could finally be alone again with just my own grief to keep me company.My mom got the call about my grandma’s death just two minutes after walking into my apartment o…

Lady Gaga Got Anderson Cooper Drizzunk

“We actually ended up that day in a pub in London drinking Jameson, which I don’t really drink. So, she got me to drink, like, two of them. And by the end, I was ready to have the interview be over, because I really sort of couldn’t ask anymore questions.”

Anderson Cooper talks about…

What Actual Burlesque Stars Think Of The Movie “Burlesque”

If you love burlesque like I do, you might have had mixed feelings when you heard about the movie “Burlesque.” Just how badly might Christina Aguilera and Cher butcher this thing that I love? But on the other hand, how awful can a movie be if Stanley Tucci is in it?

I had…

Justin Bieber Whirls Hair In Opposite Direction

On Friday, Justin Bieber gave a reading from his new book, First Step 2 Forever. Not only did he look significantly older than the last time we saw him, but his hair was looking shorter and was—hyperventilating gasp—brushed in the opposite direction from normal. The voice deepening can’t be far behind. [New York, 11/26/10]…

Girl Talk: Can You Ever Truly Be Happy For Someone Else?

When I told my best friend I was happy for her because she was pregnant, it couldn’t have been further from the truth. The truth was that her announcement ruined my day, my week and my self-esteem. It added pressure to my already pressurized mid-30s brain and kept me awake at night with images of…

R.I.P., Leslie Nielsen

Sad face. Leslie “Don’t Call Me Shirley” Nielsen died this weekend from complications from pneumonia. Apparently, Nielsen was a science-fiction movie actor before he discovered his comedy genius in the classic “Airplane!” and went on to make spoof flicks like the “Naked Gun” and “Police Squad!” Sigh. Those movies are totally what I watch…

How Did You Spend Your Thanksgiving Weekend?

The only good thing about a Monday following a four-day weekend is when it coincides with mega online sales, but I’m still pretty bummed another holiday weekend is behind us and we have five work days ahead. So, let’s try to take some of the edge off and reminisce about our Thanksgiving break, shall we?
