It’s Illegal To Refuse To Breastfeed An Adult Male In Saudi Arabia

drinking milk photo

A new law in Saudi Arabia has caused quite a bit of confusion. Are you sitting down? OK, so a strict version of Islam forbids women to come in contact with men who are not their relatives. And so the Saudis have issued a fatwa demanding that women who come into regular contact with unrelated men should breastfeed them so that they can be considered relatives. But the big issue is not the law, believe it or not. The heated debate is about the logistics of the law. Keep reading »

John Stamos And Other Celebs Who Need To Go To “Love Therapy”

John Stamos has just become my favorite man in Hollywood. According to the Enquirer, which we will choose to believe in this specific incident even though we know better, John is taking a six-month hiatus from work to undergo intensive “love therapy.” Meaning, he wants to unravel the mystery of why he’s a 46-year-old bachelor. He’s going to spend time navel-gazing and figuring out why his romances always crumble, because he’s finally ready to find true love and settle down. A round of applause for John! [Celebitchy]

I think the entire human race should be required to go to “love therapy.” Think about how much better dating would be if everyone figured their crap out instead of dragging their baggage around with them. I hope a few other celebs follow John’s example. I’m not naming any names … well maybe I am. After the jump, some more celebs who we’d like to send to “love therapy.” Keep reading »

What Your Favorite “Golden Girl” Says About You

With the death of Rue McClanahan and the recent rise to superstardom of Betty White, I’ve had a whole lot of “Golden Girls” on the brain. I can’t believe Betty is the last friend standing. In honor of the ladies of 6151 Richmond Street, I plan to curl up with Rue’s memoir and eat some cheesecake this weekend. We learned so much from the girls—about friendship, love, and even about ourselves. After the jump, what your favorite “Golden Girl” says about you. Keep reading »

Four Friends Is All You Need

If you can count your true friends on one hand, then you’re a lucky lady according to a new study. Researchers found that women only need four girl friends at any given point in their lives to be happy and well-adjusted. Even though more than half of the 1,000 women between the ages of 18 and 45 surveyed felt that they should have more, four turned out to be the magic number. Why? Because groups of five tend to be the most harmonious. The study also found that within each friend group, the ladies tend to have set roles—like career girl, homemaker, drama queen, party girl, and the shy one. I love this study. When I sat here and counted my besties, there were four! When it comes to friendship, it’s so all about quality over quantity. Sure, I may have 493 friends on Facebook, but most of those people barely know my full name. That’s why I cherish those ladies who know what my childhood pet was named (Mandy) or which guy broke my heart the worst (name withheld). I don’t know about you, but I don’t have time for friends whom I can’t share the big stuff with. [And who will give you their heartfelt opinion, straight-up. -- Amelia] [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Fun New Blog Features Ugly Ducklings Who Became Swans

One of my most favorite pastimes is looking at awkward photos, especially of friends and loved ones. If they’re nice about it, I’ll even share my pics from 5th grade, when I wore an off-the-shoulder peasant top, frosted lipstick, and had big bangs. Fun stuff. I think the best awks pics I’ve seen are of my best friend when she was in middle school. Was there a reason why she wore a bolo tie in her 7th grade yearbook photo? Hours of laughter. Hours. A new blog, Before You Were Hot, documents the before and after of ugly ducklings becoming swans. Looking at awkwardly fug kids turn into hot adults is a good time guaranteed. Just trust me, you need to check it out. Some of my favorite fug-to-hottie transformations after the jump. [Urlesque] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: I’m Not Sold On Monogamy

I was sitting around talking with some single ladies the other night. The topic du jour was the very popular “What are we looking for in a relationship?” I listened to variations on a theme: “someone to spend the rest of my life with,” “a partner, lover, and best friend forever.” I took it in. I even nodded my head and shared their vision to an extent, but the pragmatist in me started to think that forever and ever with one person sounded a little bit naïve. Does anybody really know what forever with a person looks like until they’ve done it? Following that logic, how can I really speculate what I want with a person forever and ever? Especially one I haven’t even met? Maybe there’s a reason why so many relationships don’t survive because of infidelity and maybe that reason is simpler than we think. Maybe monogamy isn’t really working for many of us. Keep reading »

Is Bethenny Frankel Too Much Of A Skinny Girl After Giving Birth?

They say that as a celeb you can never be too rich or too thin … unless you are “Real HousewifeBethenny Frankel and you’re already amazing skinny less than a month after giving birth. OK, let’s do the math here. She had her baby girl, Bryn, on May 8 and as of today, June 3, she has already lost 30 pounds of the 35 she gained during pregnancy. OK, that’s insane. Her dramatic post-baby slim down is not going over well with some mothers. They are complaining that Bethenny (and Gisele Bundchen and Heidi Klum) is setting unreal expectations for new mothers who don’t have a personal trainer or care to stick to a Skinny Girl regime. Frankel has attributed her dramatic weight loss to “doctor advised diet and exercise.” Keep reading »
