Tabloid Cheat Sheet: Farrah’s Dying Wish, Michael’s “Murder,” And Kendra’s Wedding

As you might imagine, the tabloids—like every other popular culture venue out there—are flooded with new Michael Jackson conspiracies this week. It seems that they were so distracted with MJ that they decided to give their favorite usual victims—the Gosselins, Speidi, Jennifer Aniston—the week off. I bet they’re all feeling really good about themselves? We scrounge up the new tidbits the tabs spewed this week. Keep reading »

Is Height The New Weight?

Lately we’ve been talking a lot about height. Ali has written two pieces in the last few days, about how to amplify your height (if you’re on the shorter side) and the height issues that can come up in relationships. We also posted part of an essay from a woman about being tall and how it impacts her dating life. Many of your comments on these posts had to do with your own insecurities about your height, whether you’re “tall” or “short.” Meanwhile, Meryl Streep, who plays Julia Child in the upcoming film “Julie and Julia,” says about the famous chef’s 6’2 height, “I mean, it’s like having club foot … it was a handicap of sorts, certainly in the world where she was born.” Keep reading »

Dating Amelia: Closure Can Be Bittersweet

A few weeks ago I wrote about how I wasn’t sure if I was really ready to be dating again, that I was still dealing with the lingering effects of my last relationship in which my fiance ended things suddenly.

“…I desperately fear, in all sincerity, that I will never again find someone who loved me like my ex-fiance did. And that even if I do, they will likely leave me the way he did. Isn’t that pathetic?”

A friend of mine emailed me, specifically about that line, saying it wasn’t what she expected to hear me say. Keep reading »

Pukey Microsoft Explorer Commercial

What the hell was Microsoft thinking when they approved this commeecial for Internet Explorer 8? The premise is that men are looking at nasty porn on the internet and their product will make it so they can hide that fact from their extremely squeamish wives. We know sex sells, but does vomit?

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: What Are Your Style Dealbreakers?

In the latest issue of GQ, Neel Shah writes that he went on a blind date with a woman who immediately turned him off by wearing “faded True Religion jeans.” He then goes on to describe how a girl’s style plays a big part in whether or not he could date him. While Shah’s example is a little on the, uh, picky side, I don’t think he’s all that unusual. Personally, style plays a big part in my attraction to men. If a guy is wearing awesome sneakers or, you know, plaid, he becomes a little sexier in my eyes. On the flip side, frankly, black running sneakers and white socks? Major, major turnoff. But do other guys think this way or is Shah alone? Find out, after the jump… Keep reading »

Romance 2.0: Dude Proposes To Girlfriend On Twitter

Dudes, don’t take any cues from Drew Olanoff. The Twitter user, who apparently is known for starting the Twitter campaign “#blamedrewscancer” after he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, proposed to his girlfriend via Twitter. Sarah Cooley said yes, but we wouldn’t blame her for being pissed that he asked for her hand in marriage in such a public way — and not even in person! [Mashable] Keep reading »

Drop The Dough! Nestle Tollhouse Cookie Dough Contains Deadly E. Coli Strain!

Put down the cookie dough! Last week, Nestlé recalled 30,000 cases of their delicious refrigerated cookie dough when the Food and Drug Administration linked dozens of E. coli cases to the product. Yesterday, the sad news was confirmed—the Nestlé Toll House cookie dough contains E. coli 0157, a potentially deadly strain of the evil poop-inducing bacteria. Here are the details on this freaky food poisoning scare, since apparently women are the biggest target. And by biggest target, I mean we’re the ones getting crabby cause no one loves us and are thus rewarding ourselves with cookie dough? (Sad face.) Keep reading »

Five Love Lessons From “Gone With The Wind”

Today marks the 73rd anniversary of the publishing of Margaret Mitchell’s epic Civil War novel, Gone With The Wind. I’ve read the book 20 times (that’s 20,960 pages in total, y’all!), watched the movie at least a dozen times, and have gleaned numerous lessons, particularly about relationships, with the turn of every page. I’ll share, after the jump… Keep reading »

Michael Jackson And Debbie Rowe Not The Birth Parents Of Their Three Kids

Yesterday, we told you that Michael Jackson was not the biological father of his children Michael Jr. and Paris since they were sperm-donor babes. Turns out, Debbie Rowe isn’t the biological mother of the two kids she carried for the man in the mirror. All three children (including Prince Michael II) were produced via in-vitro fertilization. Debbie was the surrogate for the first two kids, and a different surrogate was used for Prince. It’s unknown whether Michael chose the egg and sperm donors. So now the custody battle over the little ones is going to get even more twisted. With the way this story is playing out, maybe Marilyn Monroe and James Dean are the biological parents?
