Nooooo! Famously never-married couple, Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins, have split up after 23 years together, her publicist has confirmed.

Sarandon and Robbins met on the set of “Bull Durham,” and, despite a 12-year age difference, had a long relationship and two sons together. (Sarandon’s daughter, Eva Amurri, is from a past relationship.) The split actually occurred over the summer, her publicist explained, but I guess no one noticed until now. [People]

Oh my stars. If Susan Sarandon can’t make a relationship work, what hope is there for the rest of us? Keep reading »

Discuss: Should You “Schedule” Your Breakup?

Consider, if you will, two breakups:

Bachelor #1, a summer romance, invited me on to his parents’ motor boat. It was the day after we’d slept together for the first time and I thought we were having a lovely date. But this jerk puttered into the middle of Long Island Sound, stopped the boat’s engine, and then, as the boat was rocking back and forth in the waves, dumped me. Then he puttered the boat back to the marina, deposited me on a pier, and left, presumably to get in his car and drive himself home. Shocked doesn’t even begin to describe how I felt! ‘Did he REALLY take me on a boat in the middle of Long Island Sound just to break up with me? What a psycho!’ I said to myself, as I called someone to come pick me up. Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Teen Pregnancy Is Out Of Control

  • Recent data from the Centers For Disease Control says that in 2007, the teen birth rate rose for the second year in a row. Births to moms ages 15 to 19 rose one percent between ’06-’07 and five percent between ’05-’07. Well, good job, abstinence-only sex ed. Thankfully, Congress recently allocated money to comprehensive sex ed, so teenagers will actually be educated about how their fun parts work! [NY Daily News]

“Women Are Crazy, Men Are Stupid” Is Sure To Be Quality Programming

My 9th grade boyfriend once told me, “Women are crazy and men are stupid. And women are crazy because men are stupid!” Alas, I never touched that guy’s wee wee and he still lives with his mom and dad—so reductive gender stereotypes haven’t worked out for him so well.

But they have fared better for the authors Howard Morris and Jenny Lee, whose self-help book, Women Are Crazy, Men Are Stupid, was picked up by ABC as a sitcom. According to a Publisher’s Weekly review of their book, Morris and Lee are a self-described “major nut bag” and a “genuine dunce” who found love. Ah, nut bag and dunce: role models for us all!

I doubt I’ll be TiVo-ing, since a show implying women are “crazy” in romance doesn’t exactly endear me as a viewer. But who knows? Maybe it’ll be brilliant! (Snickers.) [The Hollywood Reporter] Keep reading »

Can Netflix Tell If You’re Gay By The Movies You Rent?

You thought all you had to worry about with Netflix was a big old scratch across “The Nanny Diaries” DVD, didn’t you? But be warned: if you’re LGBT and still in the closet, competitors in Netflix’s recommendations contest might be on to you.

According to the tech blog Switched, “Jane Doe,” a closeted lesbian mother, filed a lawsuit against Netflix last week because she claims the DVD rental company is violating consumers’ privacy by inadvertently making their personal business, like sexual orientation, known to the public. The lawsuit seeks $2,500 for each of Netflix’s customers, which are now over two million people. Keep reading »

Thanks, Kim Kardashian, I’ll Never Look At Salad Dressing The Same Way Again


Kim Kardashian in the sheets. A suggestive dribble of salad dressing. Boobies. A bubble bath. Just your everyday, average commercial for a tasty Carl’s Jr. salad. (No, seriously … all their commercials are like this.) Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: “Sex And The City” Star Speaks Out For Abortion Rights

  • “Sex and the City”‘s Cynthia Nixon is speaking out for abortion rights in light of the restrictive Stupak-Pitts Amendment in the House health care reform bill and the Nelson-Hatch Amendment in the Senate’s bill. Nixon recently told CNN.com: “My mother had an illegal abortion pre-1973, and it’s something that I would never want to face or want my daughter to be facing or any of her friends. Abortion is a right I feel must not go away, and I feel like people aren’t mobilizing so much because it’s so complicated and it’s difficult to understand.” [CNN]
