Love & Sex

I am told by my romantic friends that many (most?) women dream of strapping on the poofy white dress and walking down the aisle in her perfectly executed fairy-tale wedding to the man of her dreams. Some of these friends have planned out their intricate weddings since childhood, just waiting for Mr. Right to come along and sweep… READ MORE »

Reese Witherspoon is one of the Hollywood elite I could actually see myself going shopping with. She’s so talented, but seems very down-to-earth, grounded, sweet. Maybe that’s why ever since her marriage to Ryan Phillipe fell apart, I’ve been rooting for her to find happiness. Well, it seems she has, with new hubby Jim Toth … a guy who at… READ MORE »

After the craziness that is the holidays, some people return unwanted gifts, some people vow to spend more time at the gym, and some people sign up on websites that aid married people in finding someone to cheat with.

Since the start of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” latest season, I haven’t been able to pinpoint my feelings on Brandi Glanville. Each episode, my thoughts on her vacillate wildly. Very first impression, I wasn’t a fan. Maybe it was my spidey senses tingling that there was something “off” about her, or maybe I was just… READ MORE »

Teen Mom” Amber Portwood made a hugely personal revelation this week: The reality tv star says she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder several years ago. Well, that does explain a lot, doesn’t it? The explosive bouts of rage, the suicidal tendencies. She’s been about as predictable as a volcano, and similarly destructive to everything in her path.

You’d think that… READ MORE »

holiday gift guide

Ordinarily, I’m all for mid-winter festivals that light up the darkest time of the year with cheerful lights and gift-giving. But this year — especially with all the pepper-spray-infused holiday shopping frenzies — even Rudolph might be feeling a little Scrooge-y.
After all, if there are people willing to buy and hang Jersey Shore ornaments … well, the true meaning of… READ MORE »


Baby names: We’re obsessed with them. When I was naming my daughter, I spent hours combing through baby naming sites (especially the Social Security Administration’s popular baby names site), carefully making, pruning, adding to, and reordering my list. This name was too popular. That one not popular enough. You get the idea.

Love & Sex

We all know the stereotype — men want sex and they want it now. And now. And now. Except when they … well, don’t. And when that happens, it’s confusing. And frustrating. And even hurtful. We ask ourselves: Why won’t my husband have sex with me? What’s going on with him?

Okay, ladies, it’s important to… READ MORE »
