Now that Mother’s Day is over, it’s time for some real talk on this “mothering” thing. Own own mom might be in line for sainthood, but we’ve dated some dudes whose mamas made “Monster-In-Law” look like an episode of “Teletubbies.”

My personal least-favorite mother-of-an-ex-boyfriend was the one who didn’t think I was good enough for her son because I didn’t attend an Ivy League college and repeatedly put down my writing career. This she-beast asked me about my salary and insinuated more than a few times that I should get a  ”respectable” job in finance or law.  I guess loving her son with all of my heart was not good enough? 

I’m not the only one with a nightmare mom-in-law. Anonymous tales from the Frisky dating crypt, after the jump: Keep reading »

Amy Winehouse and Adele photo

[Amy Winehouse and I] spent a little time together and talked about [working together]. But, what little time we had, well, it was tense. She was in a bad state, God knows why. I think that the Adele thing had Amy freaked out. She liked her, but Adele’s success was making Amy feel upset, competitive, restless. Anyway, we lost touch briefly. And before she and I could really start the process of beginning a new album, it was too late. 

–Mark Ronson reveals that Amy Winehouse, with whom he worked on her “Back To Black” album, was feeling really competitive and anxious about the success of another young, talented British female with a big voice: Adele.

Shoedazzle Lingerie

I don’t know about you all, but my lingerie budget is really cramping my everything-else budget. So I’m always thrilled to find a new outlet for my lingerie fetish and I am obsessed with Lace, the new lingerie  line at ShoeDazzle. Yup, ShoeDazzle, the shoe-of-the-month club that you’ve probably seen Kim Kardashian promoting, sells sexy underthings. Nightgowns, bustiers, chemises and matching bra-and-panties sets can be bought (in sets only) for around $32 each. I’m loving the lacy, ultra-feminine looks, but you might fancy the seductive satin ones — and don’t even get me started on all the bustiers with straps for thigh-high stockings. Boo hoo for my single status … it’s your loss, boys!  Now pardon me while I go stock my lingerie war chest. [ShoeDazzle.com Lace] Keep reading »

“Ninety percent of the time when I go on dates, I’m by myself thinking, I could be reading my book instead,” Zosia Mamet, who plays the naive one on “Girls” (and the lesbian-ish one on “Mad Men”), said last week on “Conan.” Oh, honey. We know. We have been there. Oh, have we been there. The next step is that you go on a date and find yourself missing your cat. [Team Coco]

Confederate Prom Dress
My, what a lovely and offensive dress you are wearing. Read More »

You thought you had a bad prom? These Wisconsin teens lined up on a pier to take those awkward pre-prom photos. Then they heard a cracking sound … and the pier gave way, dumping everyone in the lake. I bet all the parents who paid for $300 prom dresses, hair and nail appointments were pissed.

More pics at the link. I won’t pretend I didn’t laugh. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
