The Stuff Of Nightmares

I like to imagine this woman was meeting a blind date, and when he asked how he’d recognize her, she said: “I’ll be the gray-haired lady wearing a gigantic Sarah Palin on my shirt.” Wonder if he showed up? [via BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Dressed To The … Nines?

Sarah Silverman wasn’t exactly dressed to impress at the premiere for the movie “Nine.” Seriously, if you’re going to show up on the red carpet looking like you just walked your 4-year-old brother to preschool, maybe you should stay home and watch the movie on Netflix in a few months. Show some respectful, Silverman! [Westwood, CA, 12/9/09] Keep reading »

New York Couple Test Their Vows In A Tiny Microstudio

How much space do you need if sharing it with a significant other? If I’m on vacation with my husband, one room in a hotel is fine, but if we’re talking full-time living space, I need at least a one-bedroom apartment with a door to a room I can hole up in and be alone if the mood strikes (or if my dude’s watching sports on TV). I cannot even begin to fathom sharing 175 square feet with my husband and two cats, but that’s exactly what one New York couple is doing. Zaarath and Christopher Prokop live in the smallest apartment in the city in the working-class Manhattan neighborhood of Morningside Heights. The couple bought the “microstudio” for $150,000 three months ago and share it with their two cats (see all the photos here). With no closets, the couple keeps their clothes strategically stashed at various dry cleaners and in their offices. They’ve got a single hot plate, a mini-fridge, two windows, and a queen-sized bed that takes up a third of their living space. They don’t have room for a trash can (“the second something needs to be thrown out, they walk to the chute in the hallway”), but they have a kitchen cabinet full of champagne (“Zaarath’s job allows them to order cases of it”). “We really have everything we need.” says Christopher.

Mindy Kaling Charms Us On “Ellen”


One of my favorite girl crushes, Mindy Kaling, visited Ellen yesterday and reminded me why I love her so. When Ellen asked if her parents were always supportive of the writer, actor, and sometimes director of “The Office,” she said they would have been happy if she’d been a cigar aficionado or even a criminal instead, just as long as she was the best cigar aficionado or criminal in the world. “They just really wanted to brag to their friends about whatever I did,” she explains to Ellen about her traditional Indian parents. Later, she shares a picture of herself at 11 years old in which her gender is definitely ambiguous. “I could have told you this was my brother!” she said, and Ellen agreed. Clip above.

Dear Wendy: “My Girlfriend Cheated. How Do I Move On?”

I have just ended a long-distance relationship. We both agreed at the time of the breakup that circumstances wouldn’t allow our relationship to continue. I cared about her deeply, but that wasn’t enough for her, and I understood her point. The relationship was passionate, and I believed we both loved each other. However, I found out through some common friends that she had started cheating on me at least a week before she broke it off, and lied about it while ending it, pretending to still care about me. She was going to continue doing this behind my back. I want to confront her about this, but I can’t betray my friend’s trust. I want her to know she did something wrong, that she passed on a chance at real happiness, but I know it’s over because I can’t love her anymore. What should I do? What is the proper etiquette for confronting an ex over indiscretions learned after the relationship is over? It is hard for me to let this go. — FrustratedEx
