“Maybe it sounds jerky, but I’m lucky to be on such a fashion-centric show. There’s no designer I don’t have access to. … What I planned [for a wedding] before I got into the business has changed. It used to be that my mom or I would make my dress. Now I’m like, ‘Hmm, I wonder what shoes Christian [Louboutin] is going to make me. and which couture house I should go to?’”
– Decisions, decisions for poor Blake Lively in Marie Claire — who, I might add, has not even officially announced she is engaged yet. Which $650 heels will you have custom-made for you?

Then, this South African couple told the Daily Mail about how they keep an adult pet Bengal tiger inside their home as a pet and he sometimes chews up their sofas. This couple also owns several tasty-looking pet dogs.
Typically, I have boundless reserves of empathy, if not outright sympathy, for others. But it is time for some real talk: None of these people are deserving of our sympathy. I mean, it sucks when bad things happen to people, like when your Bengal tiger eats your couch. It would suck if more bad things happened to these people, like if your pet Bengal tiger eats your dogs. But do we feel bad for these individuals for the hard knocks coming their way?
