Does anything scare the mess out of Scary Spice, aka Melanie Brown? Seems she was terrified to show her sexy side for her new Las Vegas burlesque extravaganza, “Peepshow,” so Mel had a friend hypnotize her into staying cool during the show. But does it work? [People] Keep reading »
Susan Boyle didn’t look like much when she stepped to the microphone on “Britain’s Got Talent,” the UK version of “American Idol.” Her hair’s wack, her brows need plucking, and she did a tummy wiggle dance that was just not becoming. But once she opened her mouth, even Meanasaurus Rex Simon Cowell got teary over her flawless rendition of “I’ve Dreamed A Dream.” Show em’ how it’s done, old girl! Keep reading »
Just when I had convinced myself that I actually enjoyed the first season of MTV’s “The City,” Lauren, Heidi, Spencer, Audrina, and the rest of “The Hills” crew are back, like the back-stabbing best friends I never had. The season premiere featured a tearful Heidi and Lauren reunion, and Spencer beating up a kid who dared to tell Heidi he saw Spencer hitting on a female bartender. And what’s this I see on the season teaser…? Keep reading »
“Guiding Light” is old. Like, as old as your grandparents. It started out as a radio serial in 1937 and made the jump to television in 1952. But after 72 years, CBS is axing the show because, well, no one’s watching anymore. After the jump, a look back at the celebs who got their big breaks on the “Light.” Keep reading »

This week’s season finale of “The Bachelor” may have been exciting, but really, when you think about it, the results were pretty typical of past seasons. Former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader Melissa squealed as Papa/Poo-Poo Bach slipped a ring on her finger. The episode ended with the two of them jumping in a pool for a smoochfest. Then, two seconds later, came the “After the Final Rose” special. And a teary eyed Jason proceeded to dump Melissa because “the chemistry had changed” and he was totes hung up on Molly, the girl he’d sent packing.
Shocker? Sure. But “The Bachelor” hardly has a track record for couples staying together for longer than their 15 minutes of fame. Currently, Poo-Poo and Sloppy are still together, but the likelihood of that lasting doesn’t look good. After the jump, exactly how long the “Bachelor” couples have stuck it out. Any woman thinking of responding to their next casting call, beware. Keep reading »
Bread, bacon, clams —whatever you call it, women are the ones bringing it home these days. According to The New York Times over the past year, as companies from Citibank to GM announced massive layoffs, a full 82 percent of the people getting pink slips have been men. Any day now, women are expected to become the majority of the American workforce.
On the one hand, more women being primary money-makers is amazing—a real opportunity for us to get over the way-outdated idea that supporting a family is a man’s job. But on the other hand, relationships can suffer when one source of income is lost and power dynamics shift.
We talked to six women whose husbands/fiancé/boyfriends have lost their jobs. How it’s affecting their relationships, after the jump… Keep reading »
