If you were porking someone the weeks leading up until Freshman Orientation and using the L-word, chances are you are “doing the long-distance thing” at college. And chances are a sizable percentage of your brain is elsewhere, when it should be focused on making new friends, pitching a column to the school newspaper, and discovering the least disgusting dining hall. I am here to tell you that it’s Band-aid time: that is to say, rip it off real quick. Do it. Dump your high school boyfriend.
Gather ’round, college freshmen, for a grizzled tale of love and loss from one who has been around the block. Keep reading »
If it’s a day ending in “y,” that means there is more trouble for Brit-Brit. Ex-bodyguard Fernando Flores filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against the pop tart yesterday. Even though we knew some of the accusations previously — she walked around the house naked; she asked for his belt to spank her kids — now he is spilling all the beans. And they’re some dirty, dirty beans. Keep reading »
Fashion’s Night Out is on Friday, which means the fashion industry’s brightest bulbs will clack around New York City trying to get you to buy stuff. But makeup freaks everywhere await Chanel’s debut three new nail polishes: khaki brun, khaki vert, and khaki rose. Or, as I see them, baby poop brown, pea soup green, and bathtub grime red.

“I recently had plastic surgery. It was a hard decision to make, and I decided if I’m going to do it, I’m going to tell the truth. I’m writing a book about aging, so I can’t write that book and not say I’ve had plastic surgery. And you know, I just decided it was for me — I don’t want to have bags under my eyes that make me look tired, and so forth and so on.”

Giving hope to saggy breasts everywhere, a British bra company, Triumph, has teamed up with a military fitness training school for a “boob camp” workout. How do you tone a body part that’s filled with fat (or silicone!)? The UK’s No.1 Boot Camp and Triumph claim their “boob camp” push-ups and dumb bell presses will tone the muscles around your breasts and help hold ‘em high. This sounds like a B.S. cross-promotional idea to me, but hey, maybe you have seen soldiers with amazing racks.
Do you believe a “boob camp” could actually tone your ta-tas or is this idea a crock? [AudioFuel] Keep reading »
White women talk about Nicholas Sparks, Eat Pray Love, Carrie Underwood and mascara. Black women love lip gloss, self-help and “Pretty Woman.” Latinas are gung-ho for the “Twilight” saga and “Sixteen Candles.” For Asian women, it’s “A Walk To Remember,” lip balm, and Tuesdays With Morrie that make the cut. Middle Easterners get excited by Vogue and Elizabeth Gilbert, while for Indians it’s “When Harry Met Sally” and Jane Austen. Pacific Islanders just love Mitch Albom, chivalry, and a bargain.
You might be wondering what I am talking about. Keep reading »
Sucky people have not actually sucked on MTV for over a decade now, but there was a time when the channel didn’t send us diving underneath the bathroom sink for something toxic. Alas, a cartoon like “Daria” would never exist today and that’s why we “Daria” super-nerds need to get our hands on “Daria: The Complete Animated Series” DVD, which was released this spring. In honor of this momentous occasion, the blog Can I Get A Man With That? called up Tracy Grandstaff, the actress who voiced Lawndale High’s #1 social outcast, Daria Morgendorffer, for five seasons.
