    Former Call-Girl Ashley Dupre Looks for Love and More Fame

    I’m a self-described reality TV junkie. I watch it all, including Tori and Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood, Jon and Kate Plus Eight, America’s Next Top Model and I’ve recently taken up a new addiction to VH1’s I Love Money. But I have to say I’m less than excited about the reality show Ashley Dupre is reportedly developing. Dupre, as you may remember, was the high-priced hooker that took down New York Governor Eliot Spitzer earlier this year. And now it seems she is looking for love and romance…or just more notoriety in the same fashion as A Shot At Love’s Tila Tequila. I guess I’m just totally sick of these celeb-reality stars thinking the American public is dumb enough to believe you can find love under the watchful eye of a production team. And I ask you, what exactly does Dupre have to offer in the ways of love? As far as I know, love has never been a job requirement of prostitution, although perceived romance has. Dupre would better serve society by developing an instructional reality show on how to make copious amounts of money with only a few hours of work. Now that’s a show I’d watch, as long as her techniques were legal. I’ve got student loans, you know. [New York Post] Keep reading »

    Folding Clothes Is Just Not That Serious

    One of the greatest lessons I learned while working at New York & Company in my early-’20s was how to half fold a T-shirt. It’s pretty basic…you just fold the shirt in half and then fold the sleeves over the front. But the genius is that you can fit about 10 shirts in a space that would normally hold about three traditionally folded ones. Thankfully though, I’m not an obsessive folder, someone who continues to fold and organize their clothing as if they still worked in a clothing store. But I have to tell you these people do exist. And they’re letting their retail pasts and ideas of folding perfection affect their marriages and clothing choices — according to a Wall Street Journal article, some actually select clothes based on an item’s foldability. You know, it’s kind of sad that these people, who say they can’t help themselves, weren’t able to deprogram after the long hours of folding T-shirts, jeans and even panties. (Yes, we actually had to fold panties. And for this reason my underwear drawer now looks like a tangled mess.) But then again, I bet their closets are amazingly immaculate, a feat we all can envy.

    Fashion Slideshow: Dress Like Gossip Girl’s Rich, Preppy Snots!

    Did you tune into Gossip Girl each week for an hour-long fashion fix? Did you ever miss a key plot point because you were daydreaming about Blair Waldorf’s latest Balenciaga handbag? Well…so were the rest of the 2.7 million viewers. Gossip Girl is more than a show about Manhattan’s elite private schools; it’s a cultural phenomenon that has had a great impact on retail trends, making preppy staples like piped blazers and argyle fashionable again. And although the television season has ended (you can watch repeats on The CW Monday nights), we’re sure its ritzy, collegiate style will be showing up in department stores nationwide when the “Back to School” season begins. Now if only there was a definitive answer to: “How old is too old to wear knee-socks and a short pleated skirt?” Keep reading »

    A Spa For Women Concerned About Pelvic Fitness

    Dr. Lauri Romanzi, a gynecologist who performs pelvic reconstruction surgery, will open the first spa dedicated to strengthening and grooming a woman’s genitals in Manhattan this month. Taking a cue from the creation of storefront dental spas, like BriteSmile, Dr. Romanzi developed her own concept of pelvic fitness. PHIT — short for pelvic health integrated techniques — will help women get healthy from the inside out with the use of Kegel exercises and laser treatments. We’re all for women taking care of their junk, but you can strengthen their vaginal muscles with products sold at adult stores, like Tighten Up or Ben Wa balls, for a lot cheaper than PHIT’s $150 signature gynecological exam.

    Cleaning: For Women Only

    I’m a young woman who enjoys the typical girly things, like makeup, clothes and nail polish. But I can’t for the life of me figure out why I’m inundated with cleaning product commercials whenever I’m watching “girly programming,” like “What Not to Wear” or “Tori and Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood.” In the late ’90s and earlier this century, it seemed ad men—and women—finally realized they were neglecting a major segment of the population that might actually want to clean up a spill or, you know, disinfect something, so commercials were changed accordingly. But now, this spic-and-span equal treatment has gone out the window. Keep reading »
