A Bad Marriage May Have Serious Effects On Your Health

As a single lady who is fairly skeptical about marriage, I found this NY Times Magazine article very enlightening. The long-standing theory is that there are major health benefits for the marrieds of the world—they tend to live longer, healthier lives. But new research is showing that this “marriage benefit” does not extend to those that are unhappily married, divorced, or widowed. It seems to be more about the quality of the relationship than having the relationship itself. I hate to say it—duh! Who feels good in an unhealthy relationship? No one.

10 Summer Movies That We’re Actually Looking Forward To

summer movies main jpg
Summer is just around the corner, which means that we should brace ourselves for the usual drought at the movie house. Why does it seem like summer movies are always just a bunch of cheesy blockbusters, packed with comic book characters and explosions? Maybe it’s because the film industry assumes that we’re outside soaking up the sun, and have lost some brain cells as a result. But for those of us who are allergic to the beach or are staging a “sit-in” against wrinkles, is it too much to ask that we have a few good summer film options? No, I say.

In this slideshow, I’ve searched far and wide for the top 10 summer movies that shouldn’t suck. You’re welcome.

Hugh Hefner: The New Poster Boy For Monogamy?

I never thought the day would come when Hugh Hefner would become the face of fidelity and sexual morality; but, alas, pigs have flown. At 84 years old, Hef has finally decided to settle down with one woman. Yes, folks, he’s given up his harem of bimbettes for girlfriend Crystal Harris. Sure, she’s bleached-blond and 23, but who am I to judge? He’s calling her “the real deal” and his “true love.” And now that Hef is a man in love, he has a word or two for all these youngin’ sex addicts in the news. His sage advice to master-sexters Tiger and Jesse? “When you get married, you make a commitment. I had a lot of girlfriends, but it’s not the same as cheating. I don’t cheat,” he said. “I am very open about what I do. I think that when you are in a relationship, you should be honest. The real immorality of infidelity is the lying.” Keep reading »

Laura Day: Psychic To The Stars Or Con Artist?

New Agey celebs such as Demi Moore, Nicole Kidman, and Jennifer Aniston are big fans of psychic/author Laura Day, who wrote three bestsellers including How To Rule The World From Your Couch, which sounds amazing if it really worked. But according to Adam Robinson, the co-founder of the Princeton Review and Laura’s ex, she is nothing but a con artist. Robinson is suing Day, claiming that he supported her financially, wrote most of her bestselling books, and that she used his “psychological weaknesses” to manipulate him out of his money. Whatever the heck that means. Keep reading »

10 Post-Breakup Hotties

So, like Wendy, I am not on board with the phrase “revenge body,” as in Kim Kardashian getting back at Reggie Bush by losing five pounds. Puh-lease. But I can get on board with looking totally hot after a breakup. When someone looks slammin’ post-split, it says to me, “That relationship was no good for me. I am so much happier without them.” It’s less about the five pounds lost while tearfully staring at a tuna sandwich and more about that glow that comes when one unloads dead weight and starts anew. And isn’t that really the best revenge after a breakup? Being really, truly happy in your life? After the jump, some celebs who looked banging after their breakups.

Strange Marilyn Monroe Memorabilia For Sale

I get that Marilyn Monroe was like the biggest sex symbol of all time. But how obsessed with her would you have to be to want to buy her chest x-ray? Seems creepy to me, but the auction house manager charged with selling her 1954 x-ray is confident that people will want this “ultimate look into the legend.” Yeah, that doesn’t sound stalkerish at all. In fact, he thinks this chest x-ray, taken while she was undergoing treatment for endometriosis, will bring in at least $1,200. Not me said the flea—I don’t want a dead woman’s x-ray in my house. Nor do I want her psychiatrist’s couch or her financial records, which are also up for auction. [Newser]

After the jump, some more Marilyn memorabilia that you could have had but you’re probably glad you don’t. Keep reading »

The Many Loves Of Oprah Winfrey

I’m sure the Big O has been bracing herself for the release of her unauthorized biography by Kitty Kelley due out today. Of course, a few people got their grubby paws on advanced copies, so the mudslinging and dirt-dishing got off to an early start. I’m thinking that Oprah must be outraged about the allegations in the book that her Aunt Katherine has accused her of lying about her sexual abuse. I’m not going to touch that one. But I will touch on the details of her relationship with John Tesh. According to the book, Tesh, pianist and former host of “Entertainment Tonight,” had a serious relationship with Oprah when they worked together in Nashville in her early 20s. They even lived together for a time before the pressures of an interracial relationship proved to be too much for him to handle and he bolted in the middle of the night. Uh oh, that’s not cute.

Porn Should Be For Everyone, Even The Blind

Canadian author and photographer Lisa Murphy didn’t think it was fair for the blind to be “left out in a culture saturated with sexual images.” Even though Playboy made special braille copies of its mag between 1970 and 1985, there were no pictures to go along with it. That’s why Murphy feels she is breaking new ground with a book called Tactile Mind, featuring 17 raised nudie images with braille descriptions to accompany them for the enjoyment of the visually impaired. For a mere $225, the blind can feel up some riveting raised images such as “Woman with Strap-on,” “Satanic Ram,” “Uncircumcised Penis,” or “Love Robot.” If only real porn were this creative.

Way More Women Becoming Millionaires

While there’s no doubt that the recession hit all of us hard, there is one group that seems to be making lemonade out of lemons. A recent U.K. business report found that self-made, female millionaires are up 40 percent in the last five years. Woo-hoo! The number of millionairesses has skyrocketed because while most men invested their money in stocks, which suffered greatly, women invested heavily in the property and businesses to hit it big. Specifically, stay-at-home women who had innovative business ideas—like making sexy lingerie for large-busted ladies or gluten-free sandwiches for Starbucks—made more money than women trying to shatter the glass ceiling in the workplace. A great argument for working smarter, not harder. Now all I need is a genius idea. Maybe a robotic boyfriend or something? [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
