The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants was released in theaters today, and this time around the women have been apart all year, but their summer plans will keep them separated. According to the film’s website, “Now it will take more than a hurried note…or even a treasured pair of pants passed back and forth among them to keep their lives connected.” But this got me thinking…Do friendship groups like The Sisterhood and Sex and the City, in which all the friends get along and are connected equally, exist in reality? In my experience, the answer is a resounding, “No.” Keep reading »

Rumors about celebrities spread like wildfire and are often hard to validate or dispel. Some rumors are so outrageous that no one in their right mind would believe them. After the jump are 10 of the most ridiculous rumors we’ve heard, but five honorable mentions. See if you can tell which, if any, are true. Keep reading »
We’ve always wanted a chaise lounge (or a fainting sofa, if you’d like to be more dramatic like Scarlett O’Hara) because it just evokes a time when women were glamorous and bedrooms were boudoirs. We imagine lounging on this sofa while blogging on The Frisky and drinking a chilled glass of sauvignon blanc as we ponder where to make an appearance that night. Although this print is pretty bold, it could be tempered with pale pink or mint green walls. A white chandelier would also be a wonderful complement. [$579.99, ChaiseLounges.com] Keep reading »
I didn’t take notice of Jeffrey Donovan until last year when his hit summer show Burn Notice premiered. Now, I never miss an opportunity to drool over him as he dodges bullets, helps the unfortunate and beats down bad guys on season two. Since Jeffrey has a black belt in karate and is studying Brazilian jiujitsu, I like to think that all his fight scenes are real. (Please don’t burst my bubble if you know otherwise.) Also, I’m really impressed with his MFA from New York University. You’ve gotta love an actor that hones his skills both physically and theatrically. Keep reading »
Lauren Conrad, from MTV’s The Hills unveiled her fall 2008 collection, le vie en rose, recently. I’m not really impressed because I’ve pretty much seen every piece somewhere else. She changed up the fabrics or added a little detail here and there, but the feel is no different from everything else being offered by trend-driven retailers. And the prices are ridiculous for what she’s selling ($58 leggings, seriously?). Now I’m not a proponent of stealing from a designer, but since LC borrowed heavily from the trend world, I decided to peruse the Web for less expensive versions of her clothing.
Ladies, it’s time we start embracing our vaginas and stop letting money hungry clinics, offering vaginal cosmetic surgery, dictate what makes a beautiful vajayjay. The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recently warned that the trend of “designer vaginas” may be exploiting vulnerable women. Women in Australia, New Zealand, Britain and the U.S. have been trekking to these vagina spas to have vaginal rejuvenation, re-virgination, designer vaginoplasty and G-spot amplification. But the college said these procedures lack scientific backing and are dangerous and expensive–one procedure can cost as much as $9,500. The surgeries can also do more harm than good. Keep reading »
