After what could safely be called a lonnnnnnng week, Katie Holmes celebrated her neatly settled divorce from Tom Cruise by taking their daughter Suri to the Central Park Zoo. (That’s Katie’s mom — who supposedly never cared for her son-in-law — on the left.) [Insert joke about empathizing with the animals in their pens here.] Here’s to them enjoying the rest of their summer in the city! [Photos: Fame/Flynet; Bauer-Griffin; Pacific Coast News]
Look into any woman’s jewelry box and you can tell something about her life story. Creating a “jewelry wardrobe” — as I like to call it — is all about choosing versatile and enduring pieces that allow you to express your style and let your personality shine through. Just remember, even those of you who love making a statement, you want people to notice you and not be blinded by your bling. So remember to always wear your jewelry and never let it wear you. Click through for some tips on how to create your own jewelry wardrobe or enhance the one you already have. Keep reading »
We know that sperm’s primary function to make babies happen. But this miracle juice is more multi-faceted than we suspected. According to some new research done by SUNY-Albany psychologist, Gordon Gallup, semen may simultaneously be the cause and the cure for morning sickness in pregnant women. Because half of the fetus’ DNA comes from the father, the mother’s body may initially treat the organism as foreign tissue or an infection. This response triggers the symptoms of morning sickness. “The best cure for this type of sickness,” says Gallup, “Is, strangely enough, the same thing as its cause. The more exposure a woman has to her partner’s semen—that is to say, the more often she’s inseminated prior to conception and during the early stages of the pregnancy—the more tolerance her body develops to his genetic material.”
You heard it. Miracle of miracles! Sperm may cure your morning sickness. Click onward for more hidden talents of the incredible, edible sperm. [Slate]
The ink wasn’t even dry on Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise’s divorce agreement before she’d registered with a local NYC Catholic Church as their newest parishioner. Now that she’s free of the Church of Scientology, Katie can worship where she pleases! There are other activities Katie is free to do now that Cruise, David Miscavige, the ghost of L. Ron Hubbard, and the threat of disconnection don’t have their hooks in her any longer. See a smiling Holmes enjoying herself in our newly created Katie Fancy & Freed meme in the slideshow above…
I meant to tell you guys a random story yesterday and I forgot, so I’m going to tell you now. Indulge me. So, yesterday at lunch, I went to get a salad at the deli downstairs from our office. Now, generally I am grossed out by what other people put in their salads because they often contain odd combinations (beets and tuna? No thank you!). I have gotten used to this, however, and have learned to control my gag reflex. However, yesterday, I almost couldn’t contain myself — the woman in front of me in line asked for MAYONNAISE as her dressing. Now, I am firmly on Team Mayo. I enjoy it on my sandwiches. But as dressing on a salad? I realize many dressings have mayo in them but a big ol’ dollop of the white stuff? On top of the shrimp, plain tuna and baby corn already in her salad? I left traumatized. I needed to share. Anyway, with that fresh in your mind, let’s see what we’re wearing today…
