Dolly Parton Admits She’s Secretly Tatted Up: “They’re For My Husband”

Dolly Parton Secret Tattoos

“People said the other day that the reason [I] wear sleeves is that [I] have snake tattoos all over you, and I said, ‘No, I don’t.’ I do have a few little tattoos, but they were mostly done to cover scars because I’m so fair. So it started with that, and I’m not really one to have tattoos, but I do have a few and they’re not where you can see them. They’re mostly for my husband.”

–Dolly Parton cleared up those crazy rumors that she’s secretly covered in more ink than a Hell’s Angel on “The Today Show” this week, and it turns out the truth is a little less crazy than the rumor, but still highly entertaining and SO Dolly-esque. Dolly admitted she does have some secret tattoos, but they’re all small and mainly exist for the benefit of her hubby of nearly 50 years, Carl Thomas Dean. Now we can only dream of what that tattoos might be… [Us Weekly]

6 Annoying Couple Habits And How To Break Them

Nick and I were at a dinner party recently, and one of the couples there had the most annoying habit: whenever one of them was telling a story, the other would correct them constantly. And these weren’t major, necessary corrections like “no, silly, his death sentence was exonerated!”, they were trivial corrections about tiny, insignificant details, like the color of a car their mutual friend was driving, or if something happened in April instead of May. It was so bad that by the end of the night I wanted to scream, “Just let them tell the damn story!” This experience got me thinking about bad couple habits — the annoying habits that often manifest themselves when people get in relationships. What are they, and how do you fix them? Read on to find out! Keep reading »

Watch This “Louie” Character Serve Up Some Heavy Truth About Dating As A Fat Girl

Louie Fat Girl Speech
"Have you ever held hands with a fat girl?"

“Louie, you know what the meanest thing is you can say to a fat girl? ‘You’re not fat.’ I mean, come on, buddy. It just sucks. It really really sucks. You have no idea. And the worst part is, I’m not even supposed to do this. Tell anyone how bad it sucks, because it’s too much for people. I mean, you, you can talk into the microphone and say you can’t get a date, you’re overweight. It’s adorable. But if I say it, they call the suicide hotline on me. I mean, can I just say it? I’m fat. It sucks to be a fat girl. Can people just let me say it? It sucks. It really sucks. And I’m going to go ahead and say it. It’s your fault.

Look, I really like you, you’re truly a good guy, I think. I’m so sorry. I’m picking you. On behalf of all the fat girls, I’m making you represent all the guys. Why do you hate us so much? What is is about the basics of human happiness, feeling attractive, feeling loved, having guys chase after us, that’s just not in the cards for us? Nope. Not for us. How is that fair? And why am I supposed to just accept it?”

This is an excerpt of an amazing speech given by actress Sarah Baker, who plays Vanessa, Louis CK’s potential love interest on this week’s episode of “Louie.” Vanessa is a smart, funny, ebullient waitress who just happens to be fat, which makes Louie hesitant to start a relationship with her. Him sheepishly muttering, “You’re not fat” sets off one of the most honest, vulnerable discussions of weight and dating I’ve ever seen on a TV show. Watch the whole scene above, and read this great interview with Sarah for some behind-the-scenes insights on the episode. [Via Jezebel]

The 5 Best Things About Traveling (Besides The Actual Traveling Part)

5 Best Things about Traveling (Besides The Actual Traveling Part)

A few years ago a study came out that said the anticipation of a vacation actually makes people much happier than the vacation itself, and as much as I enjoy traveling, I must admit I find this to be true. I just booked a trip to France, Switzerland, and Iceland for later this year, and I’m SO excited.  Of course I’m stoked for the trip itself, but I’m almost equally thrilled about spending the next few months researching, planning my itinerary, and staring wistfully at photos of sidewalk cafes in Lyon. Nothing makes my life feel more colorful and energized than having a trip on the horizon — even if that horizon is pretty far off. Here are 5 things I love about traveling, none of which happen on the actual trip itself… Keep reading »

Dream Job Alert: Swiss Town Seeks Village Hermit

Swiss Town Seeks Hermit

The small community of Solothurn, Switzerland, is having a crisis, and maybe you can help. You see, there’s a cave just outside of town, the Verena Gorge Hermitage, which for the past 600 years has been inhabited by a hermit (not a single immortal hermit, obviously, but a succession of hermits). The current hermit recently had to step down for health reasons (perhaps related to not getting enough sunlight? Just a thought) and now the town is scrambling to find a replacement to keep the hermit tradition alive. Unfortunately for introverts who are salivating at the prospect of getting paid to live in a cave and never talk to anyone, this hermit job is a decidedly social one. According to an ad the town placed in a local newspaper, “The new hermit should have a religious background, have an idealistic attitude, be willing to speak with the visitors and answer to their questions or give them advice.” But! If you can put up with advising tourists about the meaning of life, the gig does come with a free cave, a monthly salary of $1,140, and paid vacation. As far as hermit jobs go, this seems like a great one. [The Daily Beast]

When First Class Isn’t Classy Enough: Airline Debuts Private Apartments

Ugh, isn’t flying first class the worst? Those luxurious, spacious, reclining seats. The hot towels and free champagne. The flight attendants not treating you like one of the ragged, poverty-stricken suckers in coach. It’s just awful. Luckily for anyone who’s experienced the plebeian horrors of first class, Etihad Airlines is rolling out a new, higher-end alternative: private 3-room apartments. For serious. Each flying residence will include a private bath with shower, a living room, and — here’s the kicker — a personal BUTLER trained at London’s Savoy hotel to tend to your every need. The uber first class cabins will be available on the airline’s double decker Airbus A380 planes, and tickets for a trip between London and Abu Dhabi will run you about $21,000, one way. If you need me, I’ll be crying into my $17 cracker plate in my over-the-wing seat with a broken armrest. Sigh. [Conde Nast Traveler]

Compassionate Fashion: Hands-Free Bags From Hipsters For Sisters

Compassionate Fashion: Hipsters For Sisters

Hipsters for Sisters is an accessories company founded by designer Debra Denniston and her two daughters. Their mission is to “liberate women from their baggage,” and they mean it, both literally — they specialize in hands-free belt bags — and figuratively — 10% of their profits are donated to organizations that aim to empower and liberate women. Hipsters for Sisters’ belt bags are not only cute, convenient, and fashion-forward, they’re also made in the USA of eco-friendly vegan leather, silk charmeuse, organic cotton, and other sustainable materials. How perfect would these be for concerts, festivals, or traveling, especially to areas where pick-pocketing is a major issue? I’m already fantasizing about wearing one for my trip to Lyon later this year — mostly because not lugging a purse around will give me an extra hand I can use to eat more cheese. Life dream status. After the jump, get the shopping details for the three fab bags shown above, and check out all the awesome, ethically made options on the Hipsters for Sisters website! Keep reading »

You Will Never Guess The Craziest Place Zoe Saldana Has Had Sex

  • A radio show host asked Zoe Saldana to confess the nastiest place she’s ever had sex. Her response? “There is a train from Coney Island [New York] all the way back into the city, and it was between two train cars. It was super ghetto. But I’m a lady now.” So there you go. [Dlisted]

Life Dream Status: Eataly Is Opening A Nutella Bar

Eataly Nutella Bar

What’s the best thing in the world? Wine. And what’s the next best thing to wine? Nutella, obviously. So when Mario Batali’s massive NYC-based Italian marketplace, Eataly, was forced to close its wine shop due to a technicality in New York State Liquor Authority laws, he decided to dedicate the space to the next best thing: nutella. A nutella bar, to be exact, where customers can choose from a wide variety of breads, crepes, and pastries, slathered with Nutella to order. Plus, if you stop in on Monday, May 12th, between 5PM and 9PM, you can score a free slice of pane con Nutella, aka a hunk of rustic bread slathered with the magical spread. Go get your free Nutella, New Yorkers, you totally deserve it! The rest of us can drool over the full menu here, and plan our trips accordingly. [Gothamist]
