Jenna Fischer Says Her Views On “The One” Changed After Her Divorce

“In a way, yes. After my divorce, someone said to me, ‘Finding love is not as hard as picking the right person to spend the rest of your life with.’ It was Paul Lieberstein, the executive producer of The Office; he also plays Toby on the show. I held on to that advice when I was searching. I’d start to fall for someone and think, But that’s not a good match. The fluttery feelings aren’t enough. When I was younger, I thought you married the person you fell in love with the most. But as [my ex-husband and I] learned what we wanted, I realized there was a whole other set of criteria. You have to ask, Do we have the same goals?”

– Jenna Fischer (“The Office”) on how her perception of “The One” changed after her divorce in the new issue of Redbook. She’s now remarried. What do you think — is finding “The One” (if such a thing exists — I think we have a few “Ones” in our lives) about so much more than just falling in love? [Just Jared] Keep reading »

Insensitive Tweets About The Situation In Egypt Are The New Black

Oof. What was the person behind designer Kenneth Cole’s Twitter account thinking with this one? A couple hours later, that tweet was followed up with this: “we weren’t intending to make light of a serious situation. We understand the sensitivity of this historic moment.” Yeah, you were just hoping to make money by using a joke about the situation as a lead in for posting a link to your online shop. Klassy!

Hilarious New Blog Alert: Daily Urban Legend

I’ve never told anyone this, but there’s a good chance Jim Morrison, you know, from the band the Doors, could be my father. My mom was working at a head shop in the late-’60s when Jimmy (that’s what she called him) came in and bought a year’s worth of incense. It was basically love at first sight. They were together for a short period but it eventually fizzled out because of Jimmy’s drug use (which eventually killed him in 1971). Still, my mom was a forward thinker and thought someone should carry on Jimmy’s genes, so she kept a little container of his man juice on ice for safe-keeping. In January of 1979 that little cup of frozen spunk went missing; 10 months later, I was born. My mom refuses to talk about it. Keep reading »

Christian Ladies (Put A Purity Ring On It)


I gotta say, as a non-Christian who practices excessive amounts of pre-marital sex (well, at least before the sabbatical), I kinda like this pro-abstinence take on Beyonce’s “Single Ladies.” The lyrics don’t roll off the tongue as easily as in the original, but I gotta give props to these gals for using such a popular song to spread their message. I love a music video with a story line, especially one acted with such skill. Babe. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
