What We Hate In Common

A new study found that mutual dislikes — rather than likes — help humans bond initially. “There’s something really powerful about the discovery of shared negative attitudes,” said Jennifer Bosson, the lead researcher on this study. She found that we tend to connect when we have a third entity to demean because it makes us feel as if we instinctively understand each other better.

I know this sounds awful, but I think nearly all of my long-lasting friendships (and some relationships) began this way. My childhood best friend and I met when I was accidentally seated next to the kid who picked his warts and ate them in first grade. I cried so hard that the teacher changed the seating chart. My new neighbor and I talked about how weird Wart Boy was and we’ve been friends ever since. I met my college best friend on the steps of my freshman dorm. An awful frat guy tried to make a pass at me and I made fun of him. She laughed. We became instant besties. I know we are taught to be nice and perky to make friends. But screw that. I will continue to form bonds over things I dislike. It’s more fun that way. [NY Mag] Keep reading »

This Girl Can’t Shut Her Mouth


“Bizarre ER” is my new favorite television show that doesn’t air here. The same people that brought you the guy with the tiny hat superglued to his head, share the tale of the girl who can’t shut her mouth. Poor Holly Thompson, she’s not in shock, she just yawned too hard during Government class and it stayed that way. Sometimes I feel like this girl. At least my mouth physically closes, it just has a lot to say and sometimes I can’t make it stop at the most inappropriate moments. I believe that’s called “foot in mouth” syndrome. I bet Holly could fit a foot in her gaping maw, or 26 wooden sticks, or … something else. Anything to exhaust her jaw muscles back to health. [Dlisted] Keep reading »

So This Is What Becomes Of Eliminated “Top Model” Contestants

No wonder all the model hopefuls cry when they get eliminated from “America’s Next Top Model” — a troublesome fate awaits them. Allison Harvard, Cycle 12′s runner-up, looks like she’s been busy since her season aired. She started a cult in her living room and now she’s looking for disciples. Anyone interested?

Gwen Stefani’s Middle Name Is “Vain”

“I’m very vain. That would be my middle name. Of course I am, you know what I mean? I love the visual.”

Gwen Stafani in the May issue of Elle. I don’t know exactly what she means. Is she saying she loves the visual of herself? Or that she is obsessed with the way things look? I don’t think that necessarily makes you vain. It’s lovely that Gwen is willing to cop to her vanity, but I’ve always thought she comes off as down to Earth — even though she always looks impeccable. I strive to master that skill. I guess I’m vain too. [Elle] Keep reading »

16 Female Behaviors Even We Don’t Understand

Yes, women are complicated creatures. We are aware that men are baffled by us most of the time and we apologize for that. We can’t help it sometimes. Half of the time we don’t even understand why we do the things we do. I mean, I had to flip a coin last night to decide if I was going to go to the gym or stay home and watch “The Biggest Loser.” Why? I have no idea. While I try to make a concerted effort to get to the bottom of the mystery of me (ahem, therapy), that doesn’t mean I have a clue about some of the other members of my gender. After the jump, some female behavior that completely baffles me. Add yours in the comments. Keep reading »

For Sale: Kate Winslet’s Nudie Sketch From “Titanic”

We’ll never forget the scene in “Titanic” where Jack Dawson (Leo DiCaprio) sketches Rose Calvert (Kate Winslet) nude on a couch wearing the Heart of the Ocean. So sexy. Now one lucky bidder will be able to own the sketch, actually drawn by director James Cameron. The charming piece of memorabilia is expected to go for somewhere between $10,000 and $15,000 at auction. Do I hear $10,000 for naked Kate? [Telegraph UK] Keep reading »

Reese Witherspoon Talks Some Sense Into The Women Of Hollywood

“How hard we are on people who are just doing their best. When we start measuring women on their appearance … We’re just too hard on each other. Women need to be more supportive of each other, stop tearing each other apart. There’s plenty of room for all of us. There’s plenty of men for all of us. There’s plenty of jobs. There’s plenty of room! I really believe it. Another actress out there has a number-one movie? They’re going to make more movies about women. A female writer sells a script? They’re going to look at another script from another woman. The better one woman does, the better all women do.”

Reese Witherspoon preaches girl power in Elle UK. Amen sister, Reese! I think this extends to other industries and facets of our lives as well. I believe jealousy amongst women holds us back from being more successful and satisfied as a gender. That kind of negativity takes up a lot of space within. It’s energy that we can be using to hold one another up. It’s so much easier to be happy for another woman’s success. Abundance, ladies, abundance. And with that, I believe my feminist statement quota for the day has been filled. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »

Do You Ever Get The Bedroom Blues?

Most of us are happy campers after a roll in the hay, but sometimes, not so much. A new study found that more than 30 percent of women have experienced the post-sex blues at some point in their lives and about 10 percent claimed that they have experienced it often. Symptoms may include tearfulness, anxiety, irritability, or restlessness immediately following sexual intercourse. Researchers found the cause of the postcoital funk to be unknown. At first they thought it would be linked to a history of rape or sexual abuse, but the correlation was only moderate. So, you know what that means? There’s something wrong with us ladies if we’re not positively glowing after getting some d**k. No way! I can hardly imagine that scenario because sex is always perfect and never awkward. We never think that dudes suck in bed or regret sleeping with them or feel sexually unsatisfied or disappointed. And that never leads to the bedroom blues. Never. [Live Science] Keep reading »
