Stefan From “Top Chef” Needs A Date

If you watched last season’s “Top Chef,” you either loved or hated Stefan Richter, the snotty German who rubbed a lot of the other chefs the wrong way. Personally, I loved his arrogance and the fact that his food looks delish. He came close to winning in the finals (and probably should have), but his priority now is winning the heart of a special lady. He’s part of a series in Time Out New York spotlighting single foodies. So what does Stefan look for in a woman? Well, she’d better be a drinker. “If you don’t drink, forget it. Food culture is wine. I would never date a chick who doesn’t drink.” Sounds just like … me!

The Cutest Wedding Invite Maybe Ever

This is just a portion of the completely epic invitation to Jill and Matt’s wedding. The whole thing is about a foot and a half long and tells the entire saga of their relationship, from meeting at work to dating long-distance for seven years to eventually landing in the same city. It’s sort of storybook, and I love the simple presentation and the use of different fonts. But one question — did they have to use custom envelopes? View the full invite here. Keep reading »

Tony Only Has Eyes For Eva (And Her Boobs)

The oh-so-happy-aren’t-you-jealous couple were photographed together for an upcoming London Fog ad campaign, but Tony Parker seems a little, er, distracted. Keep reading »

If Holly Montag Has A Drinking Problem, Then So Do I!


On last night’s episode of “The Hills” there was a totally laughable subplot involving Speidi staging an intervention for Heidi‘s younger older sister, Holly. Holly, you see, had a couple of shots at a party, spent a few minutes talking to Brent Bolthouse about art (oh noes!), and then did the robot. These three things, apparently, are evidence of rampant alcoholism. Somebody get Ken Seeley on the phone! But seriously, far more problematic, in my opinion? Spencer‘s cowboy hat. Also, maybe Speidi’s time would have been better used counseling his sister Stephanie, who was busted for a DUI last weekend. Keep reading »

The Perfect Way To Save Face After Getting Drizzunk

You know when you drink way too much, do something stupid, and then have to face down the people you did said stupid thing in front of the next day? Evidently, peeps were having the same experience back in 9th century China. A form letter was recently found in western China, created by the Dunhuang Bureau of Etiquette, which made it easy for public officials to excuse themselves after drunken escapades. The translation is poetically amazing:

“Yesterday, having drunk too much, I was intoxicated as to pass all bounds; but none of the rude and coarse language I used was uttered in a conscious state. The next morning, after hearing others speak on the subject, I realized what had happened, whereupon I was overwhelmed with confusion and ready to sink into the earth with shame.” [Neatorama]

Human beings came up with those brilliant words over 1,020 years ago, and we still don’t have floating space condos! We don’t even have eloquently scribed form letters anymore, do we? I guess that’s because we’ve been too busy drinking ourselves silly and looking for creative ways to get out of work. So, we haven’t really had the time to invent anything good? Let’s all give this a try and see if people are as forgiving as they used to be. First round’s on me! Keep reading »

The GThrust Confuses Me


What the GThrust promises sounds enticing — “a G-rush!” — but I don’t get what it is or how it works, even after Hilary explained it to me and two people in underwear fake humped for 5 minutes and 28 seconds. Can one of you figure it out? [Copyranter] Keep reading »

Tabloid Cheat Sheet: Nicole and Joel Married? Mary-Kate’s $900 Million Prenup?

Happy hump day! For this joyously slow news week, the tabloids were more random than ever, reminding us that no news is not reason enough to not print the news. Instead, it is reason enough to create something better than truth: intrigue. So, in an effort not to gather facts, but to create an even better existence based on subtle hints and unnamed sources, we’ve read every tabloid and picked the most interesting stories to share with you.

Frisky Rant: Seriously, Can We Stop Popping Out Of Cakes?

Paris Hilton threw a surprise birthday party for her boyfriend Doug Reinhardt this weekend, and you’ll never guess what she did! I don’t even know where she came up with this. Are you ready? She jumped out of a cake! In a hot pink costume and black diamond mask no less! OMG, right?

No, seriously though, will famous people knock it off with the half-naked cake surprise? Every celebrity hussy has given it a go, from Scary Spice to Jessica Simpson to Jenna Jameson. Even Hugh Hefner wasn’t that psyched when Pamela Anderson came out of his 82nd b-day cake naked.

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Are Men Or Women Better At Fighting?

I know, I know, how do you define “better,” right? But I think most people would agree that men and women tend to have different fighting “styles,” which really becomes a problem when we’re fighting with each other, especially in a romantic relationship. So, what do men think of the way their partners behave during a lover’s quarrel? Do they think women make a big deal out of nothing, or do they think we’re actually more advanced when it comes to conflict resolution? Find out, after the jump. Keep reading »
