satc 101810 m jpg
Friends: they’re supposed to make your life better, right? But sometimes we accidentally get caught up in an all-too-toxic relationship that only brings stress, sadness and an overwhelming desire to gouge our eyeballs out with a q-tip. Sure, friendships aren’t always going to be about scented candles, wacky photoshoots, and color-coordinated outfits (we see you, “Sex and the City” ladies), but nor should they be as uncomfortable as a yeast infection.

After the jump, the five kinds of frenemies you need to ditch pronto. And tell us about the worst friend you’ve ever had in the comments.

“Weekend at Bernie’s” Just Got A Whole Lot More Hip-Hop

Last week, Oprah paid a virtual visit to Jon Stewart‘s “Daily Show” to throw her support behind the “Rally to Restore Sanity.” But seeing as she’s Oprah, and no mere mortal, she didn’t just verbally announce her endorsement. Instead, she pulled an epic Oprah move and surprised the entire “Daily Show” audience with a free trip down to D.C. for the big event. Oprah’s appearance starts around the six-minute mark.

Study: Guys Like Ladies In Red

Looking for a man? Of course you are (HA). Then dig out that crimson wrap dress and those sparkly red pumps. A new study from the University of Rochester found that men prefer a woman in red. The study showed men either a photo of a woman in red or one of a woman in green. Study participants were then given a folder with 24 potential questions to ask the two women: Men who were shown the woman in red asked significantly more about how to get her attention than the woman in green.

Trans Athlete Fights For The Right To Compete

The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) is in a bit of a bind right now—thanks to a set of policies which some believe discriminate against transgender athletes. Golfer Lana Lawless is suing the LPGA for its “female at birth” policy, which requires that all competitors must have been born biological females. Lawless, who was born male, had gender reassignment surgery in 2005 and was a high-ranking golfer in the Long Drivers of America organization. But then Long Drivers changed its gender policy to match the LPGA rendering Lawless ineligible for competition.

“It’s an issue of access and opportunity,” Lawless told The New York Times. “I’ve been shut out because of prejudice.” Keep reading »
