Over the weekend, Drew Barrymore‘s Facebook status switched to “I’m engaged,” setting the world into a frenzy that she’s about to become Mrs. I’m A Mac. But alas, the pair is not about to ride off into the sunset in their Converse and ripped jeans. Drew’s reps say that it isn’t true, and that the change will soon be amended. Should we be surprised? No. When it comes to love, Drew is a bit of “the girl who cried wolf”—the “wolf” in this strained metaphor being a long-lasting relationship. Let’s take a stroll down Drew’s memory lane, and remember all the male visitors that have stopped by who seemed to have real staying power. After the jump, a brief history of the love life of Drew and our predictions for her future with Justin. [Newser] Keep reading »

If you saw Derek* and me on the streets of New York, you might have thought we were a normal couple. You might have seen us sipping cocktails at a bar with our hands intertwined, lip-locked on the sidewalk. We might have been gazing into each other’s eyes so intently that we didn’t notice you gawking and muttering, “Get a room,” under your breath. You might have seen us on the front stoop of your building, licking ice cream cones and thought that we were in love. Keep reading »
Three years ago I became pregnant with my son and the father was my then-boyfriend. The day I told him I was pregnant, he hit the road and I didn’t hear from him until my son was three weeks old. He stuck around for a month and then hit the road again, just as quickly as he came back. Since then, the only contact I’ve had with him is via e-mail, until he decided to delete that e-mail address so I could no longer contact him. He is a doctor, not just some deadbeat with no money, so finding him is relatively easy. Over the past two and a half years, he’s pulled some extremely hurtful moves and it goes without saying that I obviously hate him. Well the past few months, I’ve been having tons of dreams about him, where we secretly get back together even though we know it’s wrong. We’re flirty, happy, lovey dovey, having fun, and hanging out with friends like we used to. When I wake up, I feel sick about the idea of ever being romantic or even friendly towards him again. I’m also mad at myself for having these dreams and letting him have any control over me whatsoever, even in my subconscious. Why am I having dreams about him and what do they mean? – Bedbeat

Actress Zelda Rubinstein passed away yesterday at the age of 76 of natural causes. Zelda may be most well-known as Tangina in “Poltergeist,” but as far as I’m concerned, her finest work was in a little-known film called “Teen Witch” that I was obsessed with back in the day. If you had cable in the late ’80s, there’s no way you missed Zelda as the witch, Madame Serena, in this classic musical. I have one word for you: Netflix. Get back to me after you’ve seen it and we can have a “Top That!” sing-a-long. Zelda may have been small, but she had some huge acting chops. After the jump, some more of Zelda’s performances you might have missed. [PopEater] Keep reading »
I am writing to offer you some unsolicited advice. I heard that rumor about you and ass hat, John Mayer. Whether you are actually dating him or not (I really hope it’s just a rumor), I would like to point out that it’s a really bad idea to get involved/remain involved with him. Why? You are fresh meat; he is tainted meat. By scientific principle, tainted meat destroys fresh meat if they come within close proximity. See: E. coli. Taylor, I know from experience that bad boys will poison your life. Before you defend your feelings for Mr. Mayer, please hear me out. [Celebitchy]
