Canadian Women’s Hockey Team Reprimanded For Partying And Other Olympic Fun-Crushing

I don't know when someone decided that athletes were supposed to be virtuous role models, but apparently athletes didn't get the memo. The International Olympic Committee got pissed off at the Canadian women's hockey team who won gold medals and promptly cracked open some beers and champagne right on the ice. So they're chilling o…

Amazing Show Alert: “Seducing Cindy”

I've never so much as heard of the show "Seducing Cindy" on Fox Reality channel, but turns out that I should have been fastidiously watching it for the past month.

Marie Claire recently listed "10 things never to share with a bestie," from "the sex dream you had about her boyfriend" to "your overbooked colorist's number," and while the list is funny — and pretty wise — it leaves out a few crucial items.

Make Moving Easier With Pre-Labeled Packing Tape

Moving is a big ole pain in the behind, so we'll take anything that makes the process even a tiny bit more manageable. That's why we'll be picking up some of this room-specific packing tape next time we switch apartments. Instead of scrawling labels on moving boxes (not so helpful if your handwriting's illegible), just…

Trailer Park: “The Crazies,” “Cop Out,” “A Prophet”

I'm starting to notice that certain types of movies come out at certain times of the year. Family and blockbuster movies all wedge their way into that blissful time between Thanksgiving and Christmas, sappy relationship movies get Valentine's Day, and all the scary/political/cop/insanity movies come around that depressing end-of-winter-still-no-hope-for-spring time. As if we have nothing…

Quotable: Anthony Hopkins Says We’re Living In A Soulless Age

"You look at fashion magazines and you think, 'What are we living in?' You look at the red carpet, Paris Hilton, you know, these people and you think, 'Is there anything going on up there?' It's a mass enslavement and it's kind of fascism. And it's the androgyny of it; the androgyny of the huma…

Why I’ll Never Call My Husband A “Wusband”

Like most people, I have a variety of pet peeves. I can't stand it when people litter; I hate it when an able-bodied person takes an elevator up one floor; and perhaps what bugs me more than anything else on the planet is a holier than thou attitude, especially when it's displayed by someone who…

Olympic Figure Skaters Follow Fashion Trends, But Do They Set Them?

Whenever we watch Olympic figure skating, we get pretty caught up in analyzing the athletes' outfits. While the men wowed us with their theatrical getups, the women followed current fashion trends.

What Do You Think About Female Firefighters?

The president of the United Women's Firefighters recently wrote a letter to the Brooklyn federal judge in which she claimed that women are so underrepresented in the firefighting world that the organization is considering a lawsuit against the FDNY for discrimination.
