I go out once a week, maybe, and my mother still sends Alcoholics Anonymous pamphlets and shows concern for the fact that I’ll never meet my future husband unless I stop being such a party girl. Meanwhile, over in Rotherham, UK, a pair of 83-year-olds named Jack and Jean Atkinson are raving three nights a week until 3am. The couple has been married for 64 years—they met in 1945 and got married 15 days later. They have three kids and four grandkiddies, but nothing can keep them from living their lives to the fullest. Which, to them, includes clubbing. As Jack says, “Where is it written that when you reach a certain age you can’t do this or shouldn’t do that—it’s rubbish it is all in the mind…We’re old in age but young at heart.” Keep reading »
A male blogger named Anthony Michael Rojas posted a little list entitled “How To Treat A Woman On A Date: The Basics” on his Tumbler blog this week and it got quite a few angry reblogs from women who felt like his suggestions were sexist. Rojas clearly believe his suggestions to be basic “chivalry,” while his detractors seemed to suggest that there is a difference between chivalry and manners, because chivalry is rooted in sexism. I found many of the responses to not only be silly, but also bordering on unintentionally satirical of “feminist” anger. It was clear to me that the original poster wasn’t being a jerk, so why did the responses treat him like one? Still, the back-and-forth did bring up the issue of whether these eight seemingly harmless gestures are actually offensive because they supposedly treat women as the weaker sex. Let’s go through them one by one, shall we? Keep reading »
“That’s bad for women!” “Is this bad for women?” “Bad for women!” “Bad for women!” Blagh!
“Bad for women” seems to be the catchphrase used by the blogosphere to describe anything that may have a less than fabulous impact on women’s lives. Needless to say, while some of the arguments may be valid, this phrase has been worn out. After the jump, nine people and things that, ZOMG, might be baaaaad for women. Keep reading »
I was so excited on Monday when Wes Hayden finally got the boot on Monday night’s episode of “The Bachelorette,” after Jillian Harris finally realized he was “there for the wrong reasons” (drink, bitches!). And after Wes got the boot, he seemingly admitted that he did have a girlfriend, as had been suspected and hinted at all season. Well now that he’s off the show, Cowboy Wes is singing a different tune…
In an impossibly long (85 minutes!) podcast interview with Reality Steve — I only made it through, like, 75% of it — Wes covers a lot of ground. Much of what he discusses in the first half of the interview is related to Pilot Jake. To be honest, Wes seems pretty sincere, and given that I found Jake to be suspiciously fake himself, I might even believe him. Crazy, I know. One thing is for sure — I am VERY excited to see these two duke it out on “The Men Tell All.” Feel free to listen to the whole interview here, but after the jump, the 12 most interesting tidbits…

Fascinating topic on “The Tyra Show” today — gay for pay porn actors! In the clip above, Tyra asks a married father of three why he prefers to, ahem, receive presents rather than give them. TyTy has such a knack for making XXX subject matter seem G-rated. Keep reading »

Watching “The Real World: Cancun” makes me feel old for multiple reasons.
1. I am five years too old to actually be cast on the show.
2. It’s so insanely vapid that I cannot actually watch a full episode, which says a lot considering I can stomach an entire marathon of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.”
3. Every single girl in the cast seems to be bisexual.
Why does point three make me feel old? Well, I think I just missed the boat on the bisexuality trend. Hear me out. I believe sexuality is a spectrum and where we fall on that spectrum when we’re born and how our sexuality evolves as a result of societal influence depends on the person. I also don’t think it’s relevant whether a person is gay, straight or bi, whether they were born that way or “chose” that “lifestyle,” as I don’t think what goes on in a person’s bedroom or romantic life is anyone’s business.

Sacha Baron Cohen sat down for an interview with Matt Lauer on “The Today Show” this morning, only, as expected, he did it as “Bruno.” Awkwardly hilarious from the get-go. Keep reading »
Whenever we’re searching for new celebrity pictures on paparazzi photo site Splash News, we’re constantly coming across images of the “Gossip Girl” cast filming in New York City. There are so many, capturing all the minutia that goes into filming each episode, that we came up with a lil’ idea — Imagining “Gossip Girl,” the completely ridiculous and potentially inane comic strip in which we imagine the show’s dialogue. Behold, our first attempt, in which Blair Waldorf has a request for Chuck Bass, and he just doesn’t get it. CW, are we hired? Click through the slideshow for each frame of the strip with inspired talk bubbles. The last slide has them all together. You know you love it.
