Celebrity gossip is not the place to look for nuance or thoughtfulness. A lot of it is downright sexist. Take, for example, today’s headline on New York Post gossip page’s Page Six column, “Selena Gomez ‘To Blame For Justin Bieber’s Behavior’.”

You’re probably aware that pop stars Gomez and Bieber were, for a time, a couple. They broke up. You’re also probably aware that Bieber has been losing it a little bit lately: arguing with his neighbors, showing up late/canceling concerts, trying to fight paparazzi, running around in gas masks, abandoning his pet monkey.

Apparently, all of that is his ex-girlfriend’s fault! Keep reading »

Revenge Is A Dish Best Served Cold, Or On A Billboard

Ivana Trump famously said, “Don’t get mad, get everything.” Jennifer from Greensboro, North Carolina, says whip out the charge card and buy yourself a humiliating billboard reading:

“Michael – GPS tracker – $250, Nikon camera with zoom lens – $1600, Catching my LYING HUSBAND and buying this billboard with our investment account – Priceless. Tell Jessica you’re moving in! – Jennifer.”

I hope Jessica is ready for this important step in their relationship. [AdWeek]

Hitched: Should Marriage Be A Renewable Contract?

I seriously never thought I’d say this: I miss being engaged.

I don’t miss wedding planning, and I don’t miss being talked to as if, as a human with a ring and a vagina, I had no interests aside from talking about the details of “my” (so rarely, “our”) big day. I sure as shit don’t miss shopping for wedding dresses. I don’t miss getting Wedding Industrial Side-Eye because Patrick and I had, like, a wedding budget.

What I miss is the day-to-day experience of preparing to love someone publicly. Keep reading »

The Best Ways To Announce Your Breakup For Maximum Attention

Earlier today, Jay Baruchel and Alison Pill‘s breakup was announced. The couple have been engaged since 2010 after meeting on the set of the movie “Goon,” and have been a rather adorable couple for a while now. Despite their generally low-key style of dating so far, it seems that their breakup may be a whole other story. According to Us Weekly, Baruchel tweeted, then deleted, the sentiment, “I won’t be on twitter for awhile gang. Getting dumped rules.” Ouch.

Telling people about the demise of your relationship with somebody is never fun. Nobody’s a fan of having to have newsfeeds of friends say that they “went from ‘in a relationship’ to ‘single’” while also going through the pain of ending that serious relationship. But while you may be tempted to spout off angry or bitter messages on the Internet regarding your present state of mind when it comes to your love life and your now-ex-partner, it may be for the best to have people find out organically (without the, er, pesticides of Twitter?) in order to avoid awkward comments on your Facebook status involving pity and sad emoticons from your loved ones. I personally believe in removing the relationship status thang altogether because…well, why bother telling people who don’t already know?

That said, if you do like to shout your feelings aloud or you simply must have the attention from every person on your Facebook/Twitter/Wordpress/Tumblr friends lists and all the ones in real life, too, here are some of the most excellent ways you can do so that are far better than a mere tweet.

10 Steps To Erasing Your Ex’s Digital Footprint

Breakups are tough. Handling your new status on social media can be even more awkward (just ask Demi Moore, aka @MrsKutcher). After a heartbreaking end, it’s only tempting to obsess over every tweet, check-in and post that your ex shares online, and in fact, most of us admit to doing it, but it doesn’t make us happier.

So what do you do when your entire relationship has been documented, from your “first date” status to becoming “Facebook official” to those sappy, not-so subtle Beyonce lyrics you posted after your big fight? Delete, block, untag!

We’ve outlined the 10 steps you need to take in order to erase your ex’s trace on Facebook, Twitter, and anywhere else you had a digital connection. Read more…

10 Reasons Why You Should Never Online Stalk An Ex Again (Never, Ever)

Ugh. Social media and Google have made online stalking the easiest thing in the world, but it’s also made letting someone go for good the absolute pits. It’s way too easy to get information or see photos of your ex happy in their new life. When you’re still burned by the whole relationship, it’s the last thing you need. But, sadly, human curiosity always wins in these cases and you’re on the floor in tears.

You can block each other on different social media platforms, but do you know that blocking someone on Twitter isn’t the same as blocking someone on Facebook? You can still see what’s going on in each other’s lives, with the only difference being that you just can’t directly tweet at them. Oh, damn! Looks like your ex can check in and see how fucking fancy you are without them. Oh, double damn! You can check in and see how happy they are in that stupid photo they just posted of themselves with their new love. Like I said, shit is the pits. If only this were 1800-something, then it would all be so much easier.

But honestly, don’t you have better things to do with your time? Don’t you respect yourself way more than to put yourself through the fucking emotional ringer with your ex’s new life that is sans you? Read more…
