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 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]

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 »
