“This height of heel is what I wear. Even my slippers. I can’t even walk in flats.”
Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Off-fun-sive? Hilari-sexist? Don’t mind me: I’m just trying to think up a word to describe ads that I know demean women, but I actually think are pretty funny. Take this commercial for Air New Zealand, a faux-nature documentary about “cougars” and their prey. I’d be happy if I never again heard the word “cougar,” “puma” or “cheetah” to describe a sexually active woman in her 40s—but at least these folks are tongue-in-cheek about it. What do you think?

Let’s be honest: every relationship has a moment—OK, a lot of moments—where one person just wants the other person to shut up. Whether it’s in the middle of a fight or just during a stressful moment, the sound of the other person’s voice is just bothering you.
But saying “shut up,” as we all learned in grade school, is just rude. Relationships thrive on kindness and telling your partner to “shut up” is about as disrespectful as you can get. So, how to you get your boo to cease and desist talking/nagging/complaining while still showing some respect? Keep reading »
Eeeek, you think your parents are embarrassing? Republican Scott Brown won a Senate seat in Massachusetts last night and used his victory speech to announce his college-aged daughters are single and ready to mingle. Arianna, who is pre-med at Syracuse, and Ayla, who appeared on “American Idol” and is a student at Boston College, stood by their dad’s side while he told millions of people watching on TV they were “both available”—then when corrected by Ayla, announced only “Ayla is definitely available.” The crowd started laughing and cheering and at this point his wife, Gail, shrieked, “Stop!”
What do you think? All-in-good-fun cute or majorly creepy? Keep reading »
Exciting things are happening in my lady parts: I’ve gone back on the birth control pill. After a few years of being single and not getting enough sex to justify a Yaz prescription, I’m once again getting boned on the regular. My guy is definitely thrilled the condoms can finally come off—but trust me; he can’t be more thrilled than me. I hate condoms. Keep reading »
Lifetime Original Movies are always tabloid-y (my pops calls them “women in distress films that Mom watches”), but the upcoming flick “The Pregnancy Pact” really takes the cake. Remember a few years ago when the scandal broke that 17 teen girls at Gloucester High School in Massachusetts made a “pregnancy pact” to get knocked up and have their babies together? Remember how everyone freaked out? Then remember how the pregnant girls all agreed the media just made it up and there was no pregnancy pact?
No matter. Lifetime has made a sure-to-be-fantastic, made-for-TV movie all about it, which will air Jan. 23. Keep reading »
Pity the fool who had to airbrush the hell out of Demi Moore‘s ad for her new perfume, Wanted. Demi, honey, you’re a beautiful woman—you don’t need every wrinkle or pore on our face be to Photoshopped within an inch of your life. Remember all that Photoshopping drama with your W magazine cover? Embrace being 47 years old and just cool it on the airbrushing, ‘kay? [Dlisted] Keep reading »
