I was sitting at brunch last weekend eating greasy eggs with one of my guy friends. “So, how’s the love life?” I asked.
“Eh,” Tom replied shrugging his shoulders.
“What? You’re not hunting and fishing?” I asked, doing my best Patti Stanger impression.
“Nah, it’s not that,” he said. “It’s just that dating is so … so expensive.” Expensive? That’s a new one. And sadly I’ve been hearing a lot of guys say it lately. What’s up with that? It shouldn’t be too expensive to date. Keep reading »
The ladyfolk really redeemed themselves last night on “American Idol.” I was impressed by Lilly Cole’s rendition of “A Change Is Gonna Come.” I was moved by Katelyn Epperly’s crooning version of Coldplay’s “The Scientist.” And I am still a fan of resident oddball, Siobahn Magnus, who devoured Aretha Franklin’s “Freedom.” But there is one contestant I am totally in awe of … Crystal Bowersox. As many of you know, the men and women switched nights this week because Crystal was severely ill in the hospital. They didn’t tell us why, but it sounded very serious. All she said was, “I’m a tough cookie.” Food poisoning? A heart condition? Cancer? Keep reading »
I just discovered this really creepy company called LifeGem that creates diamond jewelry from a lock of hair or the ashes of a deceased loved one, or even a pet, for anywhere between $4,000 and $20,000. I’m not quite sure I understand the process, but they claim to create a jewel molecularly identical to a diamond from the carbon imprint of your deceased. Their motto is “Because love lives on …” Can’t we just stick to an urn? Do I really want to wear Aunt Ida’s remains around my neck?
But this could get interesting in the world of celebrity memorabilia. Evidently, the company is turning a bit of Michael Jackson’s hair, burned in that infamous Pepsi commercial, into a special Michael jewel. Hopefully it will go in a LifeGem encrusted glove? [LifeGem]
After the jump, some more celebrity Life Gem bling that we are looking forward to seeing auctioned off on eBay. Keep reading »

All this time, we were thinking that marriage was a challenging institution requiring love, commitment, effort, and compromise. But according to a new study done at the Geneva School of Business, the likelihood of success in a marriage can actually be predicted with mathematical precision. Researchers claim to have cracked the formula for wedded bliss: The woman should be five years younger than the man, from the same background, and 27 percent more intelligent. I’m assuming that 27 percent is the difference between a bachelor’s and a master’s degree? Keep reading »
As our life expectancies get longer, our grandparents seem to get hotter. Especially those well-preserved celebrity specimens—I bet you wouldn’t guess that some of them are a day over 40. At the risk of sounding really creepy, after the jump, let’s take a look at some GILFs.
If you love to hate Olivia Palermo from “The City,” then you are probably counting down the days until the premiere of “High Society,” Tinsley Mortimer’s new reality show on the CW. It follows trust-funder Tinsley and her other socialite friends as they party their way through the New York nightlife. The premise of the show is that Tinsley, the hardest working socialite in town, really wants to make it big with her handbag line. But the poor little rich girl is being held back by her socialite friends: Jules, the tantrum-throwing bitch; Paul the flaming rich boy; and Malik so chic, the eccentric socialite. But do we really have the stomach to follow socialites through their trials and tribulations during one of the worst recessions in history? The plot is so ludicrous and the characters so stereotypical that the answer might just be “yes.” With scorn. Hey, we all need someone to hate. Get your rotten tomatoes ready. Keep reading »
According to a new study, there may be a practical way to find out if your man is going to be faithful to you … test his IQ. If you’re a wise lady, then you should be looking for a very smart man, because researchers in the U.K. have discovered that high IQ and the ability to be monogamous are related in men. Why? Because intelligent men are more evolved. Yeah, tell us something we don’t already know. The evolutionary psychologist who ran the study theorizes that the smarter a man is, the less susceptible he is to indulging in his primal urges to impregnate as many women as he can. Also it’s just straight-up smart not to piss your woman off. Does this mean we can finally stop blaming men’s libidinal urges for infidelity and sex addiction? Some men are evolved dammit … and we love them for that. [Asylum] Keep reading »
Hold onto your hats, folks, because Charlie Sheen’s domestic abuse trial is about to become a bigger, hotter mess. We thought he was in deep doo-doo when he was jailed for strangling wife Brooke in Colorado. If it wasn’t dramatic enough that Brooke and Charlie are also both alleged crack heads in “prehab” … there’s more. Dum, dum, dum. An unnamed woman is coming forward to “tell all.” Oh my. After the jump, some bombshells that will supposedly come out during the trial. Keep reading »
