The cavalier girl clan (Leslie Mann + Cameron Diaz + Kate Upton + Nicki Minaj = stoked) in the new film “The Other Woman” (in theaters April 25th — check out the trailer after the jump!) has us reminiscing about our love (nay, dire need) for booze, beautiful men, and bonding time with our best friends, all while enjoying some amazing, luxurious destination. Yes, we need all of that, more of the time … but especially that last one. Now, where’s that suitcase?
When we plan the occasional (completely necessary) lavish getaway with our best girls, there are a few “must-have” determining factors when deciding where to book it.
The destinations in this gallery are our top picks to “let loose and get wild” with your gal pals, as calculated from the algorithm presented by the delicate matrix of factors below:
- Booze: Let’s get drunk.
- Men: Preferably lots, and preferably beautiful.
- Shopping: We want to buy cool shit (ex. Co-worker asks: “Where did you get that boho chic bag?” Reply: “Oh, just from this one-of-a-kind vendor in Aruba with my best girls”).
- Relaxation: Sun, beach, spa, all of the things. Yes, please.
- Photo Opp Potential: Because it doesn’t really matter unless it’s all over social media, making people jealous.

Breaking, Earth-shattering news: New York City has its very own cat cafe.
The downside is that the cafe is a pop up, and it only lasts from today through Sunday, April 27. Cat food company Purina One launched the cafe to benefit North Shore Animal League, a Long Island rescue organization that the largest no-kill shelter in the world.

Five former NFL cheerleaders for the Buffalo Bills are suing the team for alleged violation New York State labor laws by paying the woman less than mandated $8 minimum wage.
The ex-cheerleaders, called the Jills, said the team “exploited the women” by not paying them/underpaying them for events like game day performances, practices two times a week, and up to 35 corporate events. The Jills are also required to attend six annual events on behalf of the team. Their work for most of those activities was uncompensated, the lawsuit alleges, calculating that Jills worked for free up to 20 hours per week — or 840 hours of unpaid work per person per year. Some women took home as little as $1,800 in pay a year from their Jills job! Yet they still had to pay for their own uniforms, out-of-town travel, hair and nails.

While sifting through duds on OKCupid and swiping left on every single match that comes your way on Tinder, your mind might start to wander towards the kind of men that existed at a time when things were more rustic, more dangerous, with more fur capes and dragons.

When it comes to “Scandal,” I was late to the party, but I’ve finally fallen down the drama-filled rabbit hole that’s had all my friends hooked since day one.

Here are a few things all of us can learn from Olivia’s badass approach to life: Keep reading »
To mark the upcoming 10th anniversary(!) of the “Friends” finale, People magazine used the power of Photoshop to unite the show’s stars with their younger selves. While some of the transformations are more dramatic than others (David Schwimmer has definitely earned himself a spot in the “celebrities who never age” club), they’re all very entertaining — if only for the amazing ’90s fashion trends the younger Friends are rocking. Wow do I not miss the button-up tank top vest. But I digress. Take a look at the rest of the cast photos after the jump! Keep reading »
Having just released the video for her latest song, “Sheezus” — which just happens to be the title track off her third album, out May 5 — Lily Allen’s eyeing the diva crown and no one, not Rihanna, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga or Lorde, better get in this bitch’s way. (Her words, not ours.)
In fact, if you take a listen to the track’s lyrics, you’d think the “Smile” singer was inviting half the female artists on the Billboards Top 100 to fight her in a Battle Royale, especially when the chorus goes a little something like this: Keep reading »
Did I make a terrible mistake not pledging a sorority — or at least attending a school with a Greek system – in college? The sorority girls I read about in the news seem so … fun! Or at the very least wildly entertaining to gawk at. I still haven’t gotten over the ridiculous trainwreck that was Rebecca “Cunt Punt” Martinson, but a new sorority sister may have won my heart. She’s thus far anonymous, but according to the open letter she sent to Total Sorority Move, she’s a self-proclaimed ‘dick sucking queen,’ and she’s got some much-needed advice for her “sloot” sorority sisters. Behold, Dick Sucking Queen’s thoughts on, duh, sucking dick, swallowing and blacking out, amongst other, deeper pursuits: Keep reading »
