What’s So Great About Kate Middleton’s Breasts, Anyway?

Final Preparations Are Made Ahead Of The Royal Wedding

Enough with this Kate Middleton topless pics scandal. It’s not like she has state secrets tattooed under those suckers, so everyone  please just calm down. I knew the whole scandal had gotten way out of hand when my husband — who could care less about pop culture — had an interest in the whole mess. He was late to the media frenzy, of course, but when he got wind that someone was actually going to print pics of the Duchess’ bare breasts, he was like, ‘Wow. Really. I gotta see that. What magazine are they in again?’ Now, that’s a reaction I expect from nude news about Zoe Saldana or Scarlett Johannson. But Kate?!?! Seriously, what do people think she’s hiding under those designer frocks anyway? Read more…

5 Mysterious & Bizarre Symptoms Explained

One of the upsides to being a nurse is that I can generally tell you WHY you feel a certain way. One of the downsides is that I can generally tell you WHY you feel a certain way, which is why I rarely mention my medical background to people who don’t know me. After that one weird time on the train when someone wanted to show me their rash, I’m a little wary.

But you’ve got some weird symptoms going on, right? And maybe you’re scared because you don’t know what they mean and you’re REALLY hoping you don’t end up on an episode of “House.” Here are some possible reasons for your your bizarre and inexplicable symptoms. Read more…

7 Kinds Of Sex To Avoid At All Costs

Sex. It’s such a simple, animalistic instinct. But it can be a wonderful, intimate time you spend with someone you love dearly or a great way to release pent-up frustrations. There’s a lot to like about sex.

But not all sex is created equal, which is why it’s important to avoid THIS kind.

1. Coercion Sex - one of the worst types of sex to engage in is the sex that you don’t really want to have, but you’re doing it because if you do it he’ll just leave you alone and let you go back to sleep. While it might SEEM like the path of least resistance, it’ll make you feel badly enough about yourself after the fact that it’s just not worth it. Read more…

“50 Shades Of Grey” Magazine: Yeah, We Bought It & We’re Sharing the Dirty Details

Like it or not, Fifty Shades of Grey has become a bonafide global phenomenon we can’t seem to shut up about. So it’s no surprise E.L. James’ steamy series has actually inspired its very own MAGAZINE. If you’ve been to a magazine stand, you may have noticed that there’s an actual periodical devoted to all things Fifty … and it’s entitled, Fifty Shades … of American Women Who Love the Book & Live the Life. Yes, I am being completely serious. No, this is not a very early April Fools joke. The one-off publication is basically a collector’s item for Fifty fans — filled with silly, Cosmo-ish sex quizzes, Fifty Shades-inspired beauty tips, blurbs from women who swear the books transformed their sex lives, and true tales of real people living the BDSM lifestyle. In other words, if you’re one of those fans who is waiting with bated breath for the fourth book and first flick, this fanatical publication might be able to tide you over for, oh, a couple of hours or so.

Seriously, how many times do you get in the express check-out lane in hopes of getting out of the store quickly … only to get stuck behind somebody paying by check? Worst. Yeah, there are bigger things in life to get our panties in a bunch over, but it’s hard to take the high road in these situations when they’re just so irritating. Here are 10 little life annoyances that are inevitable (and frustrating!).

1. Your smoke alarm WILL start to lose its batteries in the middle of the night.

Kris Jenner Insults Honey Boo Boo’s Mom … For Doing the Same Thing She Does

Looks like the Mayans might be right after all. The world may very well end in 2012, because two of reality TV’s biggest, most controversial stars are about to throw down. In one corner, we have Kardashian puppeteer/matriarch, Kris Jenner. In the other, we have … Honey Boo Boo. If this is our future, guys, seriously, let’s just hope the world is ending.

Kris Jenner — you know, the woman who’s made bazillions off of her children — thinks that Honey Boo Boo’s mother,June, is a terrible mom for exploiting her child. Also, she can’t understand why the world is fascinated with the Honey Boo Boo family. Also, she thinks Honey Boo Boo’s entire shtick is just a giant ploy to make money. Apparently, Kris is yet to be introduced to the word “projection” in therapy.

Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie’s Weird Wedding “Details” Make Us Wonder

So get this, everyone. Brad Pitt was in London recently to promote his new film “Killing Them Softly” and he was nice enough to play with reporters who kept asking him about his upcoming nuptials to Angelina Jolie. And he answered! Us Weekly says that Brad, when asked about his wedding plans, said, “No plans yet, other than we’re going to do it.” He also gave some potentially hilarious “details” of the wedding, suggesting that since George Clooney ”doesn’t believe in institutions” (or at least the institution of marriage!), he couldn’t really be best man, but he could “seat people” at the wedding. Wouldn’t that be awesome? Especially if Jen came. And George sat her. And they fell in love … okay, I’m getting waaaay ahead of myself. Read more…

JWOWW’s Engagement Means The Double Wedding Of Our Dreams May Come True

Word has it that Jenni “JWOWW” Farley of “Jersey Shore” fame is engaged to her long-time boyfriend Roger Matthews. Don’t bust out the champagne just yet though because it’s all hush hush for now, as MTV reportedly wants her to save the big news for filming of season two of “Snooki & JWOWW.”

That’s a little anticlimactic, but congratulations to them if it’s true. Their relationship has been beyond tumultuous, but they truly seem to love each other, so I’m not surprised to see them take this next step, especially with her BFF Snooki settling down with a baby and getting engaged herself. It tends to happen like that with friends — when one jumps on the marriage-and-baby bandwagon, it starts a whole string of events.

And you know what the best possible event that could happen next is? A double wedding of course. Read more …

5 Reasons Why Sunshine Is The New Wonderdrug

The sun gets such a bad rap, you know? And it’s really not fair, when you think about it. I mean, consider what the big fireball can do (wrinkles andskin cancer and bleached-out highlights not withstanding)! The sun sustains life on this planet.In about a billion different ways, some of which we’re still discovering. Perfect example: Researchers recently found that high doses of vitamin D, which the body produces when exposed to sunlight, can help fight drug-resistant tuberculosis.
