After the jump, some more guys that accidentally on purpose forget their boxer briefs or tighty whities or whatever. Hawt.
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 »
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 »
After the jump, the inspirations (real and imagined) for the “Alice in Wonderland” motley crew.
Before Johnny Depp solidified his status as my dream man in “Edward Scissorhands,” he made me swoon weekly as the hottest undercover cop ever on “21 Jump Street.” Now that “21 Jump Street” is getting a film makeover, I’m wondering if there is any chance that we will see Johnny as our beloved Tom Hanson. It just may be. In a recent interview, Johnny expressed interest in making an appearance in the flick. “I’m hoping they’ll let me do a cameo … someone will say, ‘Whatever happened to Tom Hanson?’ and they’ll find me somewhere hoarding jars of peanut butter and shaking in my underpants,” Depp joked. Underpants? Peanut butter? Johnny Depp? This sounds like an erotic dream I once had. As Liz Lemon would say, “I want to go to there.” [News Briefs] Keep reading »
Holla! The Oscars are this Sunday! I get a little bit giddy each year imaging who will win, who will have the most ridiculous acceptance speech, and who will offend us all with their poor choice of attire. This year, we should expect more fun than ever before with hosts Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin. Oooh! Banjo duet? While there’s no confirmation about the use of banjos, there will be music. The producers are spicing up the 82nd Annual Academy Awards with a DJ set by Joel Madden. OK, not sure I get it, but I’m totally willing to go along with it. After the jump, ten more reasons why we’re super excited for the Oscars this year. [Much Music] Keep reading »
