Because I’ve been single for so long, my married friends often like to give me unsolicited advice. “I know what your problem is!” Elinor had a sudden revelation as her newborn baby suckled at her breast. Now that she is a wife to a man and a mother to a boy, her new favorite thing is to live vicariously through my love life. But what seems titillating to her is just plain old depressing to me.
“What is it?” I replied.
“You need to start dating men.” Keep reading »
What’s the best way to get press coverage before an election? A scandal, of course! Take, for example, East Cleveland Mayor Eric Brewer, who has been blowing up since photos of him in drag surfaced on the web. What a coincidence that it’s just days before his primary election! While Brewer won’t confirm that the photos are actually of him (umm … they look exactly like him), he kind of gives himself away saying, “You need a sex scandal to get to the next level.” Maybe he’ll be running on the ticket as Erica Brewer?

John Edwards, step aside with your little scandal. After the jump, some more shady mayors. Keep reading »
Ladies, I’m wondering if you’ve been having the same problem as me … men just seem too eager to get hitched lately. Really it’s quite concerning. (For those who are unsure, this is sarcasm.) Well, luckily, a new website has come along to show all those marriage-ready men the folly of their ways. Just Don’t Wife Her promises to help guys avoid the old ball and chain by exposing gold diggers and cheaters, one at a time. Moral of the story: There are just sooo many “hoes” out there.

At Grab-n-Go Espresso, a coffee shop featuring bikini-clad barristas in Everett, Washington, customers were allegedly getting way more than coffee and doughnuts. Before we go any further, does anyone else find it a strange concept in the first place? Sex and coffee seem like an odd pairing to me. Anyhow…5 bikini barristas between the ages of 18 and 24 were charged multiple counts of prostitution last week after a 2-month undercover investigation. What kind of illicit activity was taking place at the coffee hut located conveniently off the highway? Good question! Keep reading »
Q: Who is Yusuf Islam? A: The music superstar formerly known as Cat Stevens. Islam quit his music career at the height of his success to dedicate himself to education, philosophy, and the church of Islam.
Sure Jessica Biel may come off a touch prissy, but she’s got a pretty rugged plan for January—she has signed on to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa. Why? For clean water—and not just because she might get really thirsty during the 19,000-foot hike. Biel is braving the treacherous peak as part of the Summit on the Summit expedition. Singer and producer Kenna organized the group in honor of his father who suffered diseases from drinking unclean water as a child growing up in Ethiopia. Biel believes that access to clean water is “a basic human necessity that needs to be addressed now” and is honored to be climbing Kilimanjaro with the team to help raise awareness and hopefully some dough. So I’m sure you’re all wondering what I’m wondering…is Justin Timberlake joining her? It’s not confirmed, but in a recent issue of GQ he said he was preparing for a major mountain climb. Translation: following Jess’ bum up Mount Kili. [Pop Eater] Keep reading »
There’s nothing more traumatizing then a big, dirty Hollywood breakup and the mudslinging that follows. Example: Jessica Simpson
and Tony Romo
. The sudden breakup, the canceled birthday party
, the boat drama
, the mental breakdown. But could all of this mess have been prevented by some good relationship advice? No, I’m not talking about a top-dollar A-list shrink. I’m talking about Canadian relationship expert Sharon Spencer. Sharon has made a charming (?) series of videos offering complimentary celebrity relationship counseling to Hollywood couples. Maybe Jessica and Tony would still be together today had they only listened to Sharon’s wise advice: “Tony be gentle and Jessica ride a cowboy.” After the jump, some more sage advice from Sharon Spencer and, sometimes, if you’re lucky, her husband Fred.

Who hasn’t had a drink or two before hopping in the sack? I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve been guilty. I mean sex—especially with a new person—can be a daunting task. A nice little buzz can help alleviate some stress or spice things up a bit, right? But hold on one second before you polish off that cosmo. Do you really need that drink to get down? A new study conducted in the U.K. about women, sex, and alcohol suggests that maybe the answer is yes. The study concludes that not only do women seem to prefer drunken sex to sober sex, but we also are using alcohol to compensate for confidence, especially about our bodies. After the jump, some more sobering stats that may make you think twice about drinking before getting it on. Keep reading »
Why does it seem like some of the most unbelievable love stories are born out of tragedy? Did you see that documentary “Crazy Love” about the man who poured acid on his girlfriend’s face and then married her years later when he got out of prison? OMFG. Well, this story is just as insanely epic but with a much better ending, if you ask me. British woman Heidi Childs deserves her happy ending … and a freaking medal, a chorus of angels singing, a gaggle of birds chirping, and a life free of any more heartache. Keep reading »
