Woman With The World’s Longest Fingernails Plays Golf

Chris Takes The Record
Chris "The Dutchess" Walton takes the Guinness World Record for longest fingernails. Read More »

There’s a great article in the Daily Mail, which features the woman with the world’s longest fingernails doing “every day stuff” like brushing her hair, driving her car, and playing golf. Chris Walton, aka “The Dutchess,” a musician and grandmother, is known best for her 20-foot long fingernails, which she hasn’t trimmed in 18 years. Damn! I’m sure you were wondering how she plays golf with those golden talons. In a cocktail dress and heels just like the rest of us … that’s how. [Daily Mail]

The holiday season can be a tricky time to be single, even if you’ve been that way for a while, even if you’re totally comfortable with it the other 11 months of the year. Some weird single holiday haze descends and makes the most well-adjusted among us feel like a lousy lumps of unwanted coal. Spending time with your family can, well, make you feel vulnerable and stressed. Sleeping in your childhood bed (or a pull out cot in my case while my brother and his wife take my bed) can, well, make you feel as bitter and lonely as the Grinch. The combination of Hallmark ephemera, sentimental Foldger’s commercials, and old black and white movies playing on a loop can make you, well, overly emotional and temporarily insane. All of the above may cause you do naughty things. Like think it’s a good idea to contact say, an ex that you know you shouldn’t. Don’t let this happen to you. Nowhere in the rules of Holiday does it say that you should extend kindness and good will to some not-good-for-you douche bag. The holidays are NOT a valid excuse for fraternizing with ghosts of relationships past. In fact, it will probably only make you feel worse. Once the haze has lifted all you’ll be left with is the lingering shame … and there’s no gift receipt for that. It’s not worth it. After the jump, some ways to keep this holiday season ex-free Keep reading »

Oops! Men Only Think About Sex 19 Times A Day, Not 8,000

Sex = Love
Ladies should be prepared to fall in love if they have sex. Read More »

Just kidding! There was a slight miscalculation. Men don’t actually think about sex every seven seconds. I always thought that 8,000 sexual thoughts a day seemed like an oppressive estimate.  New research says that men are not the wild, hyper-sexualized beasts science made them out to be. Men’s sexual notions happen more like once every hour. Much more manageable. The study, done at Ohio State University, found that in addition to their sexual thoughts, guys actually think about (gasp!) other things during the course of a day like eating and napping. The men in the study thought about sex an average of 19 times a day with food a close second at 18 times a day, while women thought about sex an average of 10 times a day and food 15 times.

britney spears apology letter

Ah, a stroll down memory lane. Remember when Britney Spears was having an “episode” and she attacked some paparazzo with an umbrella? Well, apparently she wrote an apology letter claiming she was “preparing a character for a possible movie role.” I suppose that’s code for “struggling with mental illness”? I wonder if that was her rationale for shaving her head as well? I guess it’s all ancient history now that her hair has grown back and her mood has stabilized. But hey, an apology is an apology. How very thoughtful of her. You can’t say Brit doesn’t have manners. [That’s Hot]

Uh Oh, Lady Gaga’s Going Through A Dark Night Of The Single Soul

“I have never felt truly cherished by a lover. I have an inability to know what happiness feels like with a man … I say this honestly, and this is my new thing as of the past year: when I fight with someone I’m in a relationship with, I think, ‘What would my fans think if they knew this was happening? How would they feel about my work and about me as a female if they knew I was allowing this to go on?’ And then I get out … I have this effect on people where it starts out good. Then, when I’m in these relationships with people who are also creative, or creative in their own way, what happens is the attraction is initially there and it’s all unicorns and rainbows. And then they hate me … Perhaps it’s a whose-dick-is-bigger contest. If I go to the piano and write a quick song and play it back, they are angry with how fast and effortless it is. That’s who I am, and I don’t apologize for it. But it’s a hideous place to be in when someone that you love has convinced you that you will never be good enough for anyone. I had a man say to me, ‘You will die alone in a house bigger than you know, with all your money and hit records, and you will die alone.’ … Even though I know it sounds a bit Hallmark, whenever I [was] in that kind of stressful, worthless moment, I would think, ‘I’ll show you.’ … I think what it really is, is that I date creative people. And I think that what intimidates them is not my purse; it’s my mind.”

Lady Gaga opens up about her romantic struggles in the January 2012 issue of Vanity Fair. It sounds like Gaga is going through what I like to call “a dark night of the single soul.” It’s where you realize, much to your dismay, that as a smart, creative, successful woman, finding your match will be epically difficult. This is not just because she’s famous. I would say many single women go through this. And this is not meant to be an insult to men in any way. It’s just that, as Gaga is experiencing, many men are still (perhaps even unconsciously) intimidated by strong women. Especially if they feel they haven’t reached their peak yet. Keep reading »

Oneal Ron Morris

Behold, more fine work from fake doctor Oneal Ron Morris who gave a woman a butt implant made out of cement and superglue. Transsexual woman, Rajee Narinesingh of Miami, has come forward as another one of Morris’ victims. Narinesingh turned to Morris because she could not afford the surgery she needed to help her become a woman. As you can see, Fix-a-Flat is not a suitable material for cheek or chin implants. And this is what Narinesingh looks like after several corrective surgeries by a kind (real) doctor who is trying to help her fix her face. Ack. So awful. [Buzzfeed]
