Quote Of The Day: Halle Berry Has Good Orgasms

“You know that stuff they say about a woman being responsible for her own orgasms? That’s all true. And in my case, that makes me responsible for pretty damned good orgasms these days. Much better orgasms than when I was twenty-two. And I wouldn’t let a man control that. Not anymore. Now I’d invite him to participate. I’ll tell you this: I’ve learned my tricks. I know what I like. I do not wait around. I initiate. And I’m not all about frequency. I favor intensity. … There have been some men in my life who have been wickedly sexy and have taught me much about sexual pleasure. There are a few men I should thank, and others I need to forget. But I don’t regret. To hell with regret. I like what I am now. I like being a mother. I like my body better since I became a mother. I feel sexier as a result of becoming a mother.” — Halle Berry in Esquire Keep reading »

Sarah Palin: The Most Sexist Of Them All

This weekend, Sarah Palin finally made her much anticipated appearance on “Saturday Night Live”, showing up in two skits written just for her. To tell you the truth, it seemed like the show was actually laughing at Palin rather than with her — the second skit, featuring Amy Poehler rapping, was seriously pretty…insulting. Additionally, the “highlight” of the first sketch was when Alec Baldwin told Palin that she was “hotter in person.” Considering her campaign thought Tina Fey’s portrayal was sexist, it was very interesting that she participated in a comedy routine which only focused on her physical appearance. Personally, this just supports my theory that the most sexist treatment of Palin comes from Palin herself. Keep reading »

    Sarah Palin Does “Saturday Night Live”

    Last night Governor Sarah Palin, the Republican nominee for Vice-President, made not one, but two cameos on “Saturday Night Live”. I have to say, she was pretty funny! Although, if she and her handlers think all the talk of her hotness is sexist, is she contributing to the sexism by doing a skit where Alec Baldwin tells her she’s “way hotter in person”? Whatever, I laughed. Above, her first cameo (featuring special guests Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, AND Mark “Say Hi To Your Motha For Me” Wahlberg, and after the jump, the second, in which she thankfully does NOT rap.

    Fashion Slideshow: Pretty Pants

    To tell you the truth, I’m not so into pants. I wear jeans and I wear dresses whenever I possibly can. But sometimes pants are necessary — on freezing days, on corporate meeting days, and on days when you haven’t done laundry. After the jump, seven pairs of pants I would totally not mind wearing. In fact, I would ever wearing them on warm days, casual Fridays, and the day after picking up my laundry from the cleaners. Keep reading »

    Does “W” Stand For “Worth Seeing” Or “Worthless”?

    This weekend, Oliver Stone’s highly anticipated movie about the fairly unpopular president (Bush), “W”, comes out. I’m psyched to see this film, though I’m still pretty unclear on whether it’s a comedy or a drama. Still, Josh Brolin (Dubya), Elizabeth Banks (Laura), Ellen Burstyn (Barbara), and James Cromwell (George Sr.) should add up to being a pretty compelling movie, acting wise. And Richard Dreyfus plays Dick Cheney! That’s so perfect because I hate Richard Dreyfus. Anyway, after the jump, a summary of some of the reviews so far, so you can decide for youself if this is a must-see or a see-it-on-HBO type flick. Keep reading »

    The Five Things Women Do Post-Heartbreaking Split

    I posted earlier about chopping off seven inches of hair after finally deciding that my break was not a breakup. While a cliche, it was a defining moment that signified my new perspective on the future. Luckily, as many of you so kindly pointed out, it turned out to look good too. (I swear, I didn’t post the before and after photos in a desperate search for compliments, but I sure do appreciate them!) But as some of you pointed out in the comments, the MAJOR haircut is not the only action many women take post-breakup. After the jump, five other major changes and steps women often make in their quest to get over a broken heart and start a new phase in life. Keep reading »

    Facebook Relationship Status Change Ends In Tragedy

    Last week I changed my relationship status on Facebook from “engaged” to “single”, since I had decided my break was now a breakup. Emma Forrester, a married woman in the U.K., changed her status to single too, only her husband responded by hacking her to death with a meat cleaver. Wayne Forrester told police he had been provoked by his wife changing her marital status on her Facebook entry, and had taken copious amounts of cocaine and alcohol before the murder. He’s been jailed for a minimum of 14 years. There’s really nothing I can say about this, because it’s insanely f–ked up. [Daily Mail U.K.] Keep reading »

    Anti-Palin Ad Features Rape Victim

    A few weeks ago, we wrote about a story on Politico.com that reported the Obama campaign was seeking a rape victim for a campaign ad that would attack Sarah Palin’s stance on abortion. (The VP nominee is anti-choice, even in cases of rape or incest.) According to the Politico piece, the Family Violence Prevention Fund, served as a conduit between the campaign. Since running that post, we hadn’t heard any further information on whether the Obama campaign did indeed find a woman for their ad, but I just came up on the video above, via The Huffington Post. The ad features a rape victim, who became pregnant as the result of her attack, addressing Palin about her stance on abortion. This ad, however, was put out by Women Against McCain-Palin and it doesn’t have the “I’m Barack Obama and I approve this message” sound bite at the end, so it’s not affiliated with his official campaign. Regardless, the video above is extremely compelling. Keep reading »
