“My greatest mistake right now is, I’ve been clinging to my art. In that, I have victory for my art and a great loss for my heart. At the moment, my beautiful fiancee is no longer my beautiful fiancee. … Two halves don’t make a whole. Two wholes make a whole. In my relationship, I was giving myself away to make the relationship better, but in actuality, wasn’t doing better by doing that. I became less of a man. … We are still super friends, we go to yoga together, we surf together. We acknowledge the journey that each of us is on. We certainly want each of us to feel whole and complete. And it’s when you’re whole and complete that that attraction exists and it really thrives.”
– Jason Mraz, the singer behind “I’m Yours,” told The Daily Beast that Tristan Prettyman is no longer his fiancee. While it’s refreshing to see a famous person deviate from the robotic “We have made the mutual decision to end our relationship … please respect our privacy … we remain good friends” canned breakup statement, knowing that Mraz and his ex still do downward dog together and are all “shaka bra” or whatever is a bit overshare-y, no? I mean, are they sharing custody of their bong too? [The Daily Beast] Keep reading »
Looking for a hot scandal-ish read to crack on the beach this weekend? Tamar Cohen’s debut novel, The Mistress’s Revenge, is the juiciest book we’ve read in ages and its subject matter is particularly intriguing at a time when a high profile man is busted cheating nearly every week. Cohen’s protagonist, Sally, had an affair with married Clive for five years, but he dumped her in order to refocus on his wife and kids. The novel looks at the unraveling of a mistress scorned, reveling in the fascinating, disturbing, and, well, kind of entertaining ways in which “an otherwise sane woman” can go a wee bit coo-coo-bananas when her heart has been broken. If you’ve ever been brutally dumped and, say, daydreamed about keying his car — or worse! — this book will both titillate and calm those urges. Think “Fatal Attraction” in book form. Sharp, funny writing — not to mention an unexpected twist at the end — make The Mistress’s Revenge the ultimate summer page-turner.
Wendy Williams, host of GSN’s new show “Love Triangle,” has a huge ass disco ball ring and the opinions to match. For instance, in this segment of “Love It Or Leave It,” the talk show queen declares that saving yourself for marriage is one of the most “impractical” things a woman can do. Why? Watch the video to find out and then tell us whether you agree in the comments!
I was a complete wallflower in high school and therefore did not earn enough — or any — attention from the yearbook staff to be given a senior superlative. But Gennette Cordova, one of the women linked to Rep. Anthony Weiner junk tweeting scandal, sure did. Freakishly accurate! What was your senior superlative (if you were cool enough to get one)?

Spike TV’s “Guys Choice Awards” filmed the night before the MTV Movie Awards, but don’t air until this Friday, so any hype about who won and what people wore will likely have worn off by then. I shall contribute to that by revealing what the ladies in attendance wore and what they won in this slideshow, as I think this particular award show is more ridiculous than others. Basically, the men are celebrated for being brotastic and women are celebrated for being different versions of “hot.” I think the guys who watch Spike TV are a bit like the Eskimos, but instead of having a ton of different words for “snow,” they have many different words for “hot.” Unfortunately, I have yet to figure out what distinguishes them. What I DO know is that the famous women who attended the awards did indeed dress to the nines. Clearly they got the memo. Keep clickin’ to see who was there and what they wore!
I’ve never been one to wear an itty-bitty, teensy-weensy string bikini. First of all, there’s really no guarantee that I’ll be freshly waxed, so a tiny triangle swatch of fabric doesn’t give enough coverage to the tame the beast below. Besides, I like a swimsuit I can wear as I perform water ballet and attempt to bodysurf, without risk of exposing my strawberry kisses. When it comes to cute swimsuits that offer a bit more coverage, I am especially stoked on bikinis and one-pieces that are retro-inspired and, lucky for me, options abound! Some of the suits in this slideshow look like they could’ve been worn by Marilyn Monroe, while others are a more modernized take on the traditional retro swim-dress. Click away to check ‘em out!
