    What Would You Do If You Knew You Couldn’t Fail?

    Over at The Huffington Post, Dr. Judith Rich poses an interesting question: what would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail? Often we stop ourselves from pursuing our desire to try something, because of fear that we won’t succeed. But if you took that out of the equation — if failure wasn’t possible — what would you do? Initially when I read this question, I thought, “Fly!” I always was a dreamer. But realistically speaking, there’s so much I would do if I knew my fears were misplaced. I would take up surfing, finally master that headstand in yoga, and, obviously, ask Ryan Gosling out on a date. So what would YOU do? Keep reading »

    Barbie Dream House Gets A Birthday Makeover

    Your dream of walking through Barbie’s Dream House might actually turn into a reality. As we all know, Barbie is turning 50 this year and to celebrate her birthday, Mattel is planning a big party. And none other than “Top Design” judge and interior designer extraordinaire, Jonathan Adler, is leading the party planning committee. He is giving Barbie’s Malibu Dream House a major makeover. Okay, not Barbie’s Dream House, but an actual Malibu beach house. The beach house is getting redesigned to celebrate Barbie’s big 5-0. Adler is designing a Barbie-worthy bedroom, living room and closet for the beach house that will host the doll’s birthday party on March 9. I’m so jealous. Her closet is going to be insanely big to fit all those clothes. And for the inner child inside of all of us, Adler is launching a collection, “Jonathan Adler Loves Barbie,” this fall. The set will include pottery, pillows, a collectible doll and more, and will be available online and in stores. Even at 50, that bitch lives an amazing life. [Moresay.com]

    23 Marriages And Counting

    I’m in my late 20s and can’t get a man to marry me, but maybe that’s because I’m much more selective than Linda Wolfe, a 68-year-old Indiana woman who has been married 23 times and wants to marry again. Wolfe holds the Guinness World Record as the most married woman in history. In 1957, when she was 16, Linda Lou Taylor, as she was known back then, married George Scott, who was 31 at the time. Their marriage lasted seven years, the longest for Wolfe so far. She said her marriages failed for a variety of reasons — two of her husbands were gay, two were homeless, a few cheated, and one was physically abusive. She admits that her last marriage, in 1996, was for publicity, but she’s willing to walk down the aisle again. “Because, you know, it gets lonely,” Wolfe said. But I say she should learn to make herself happy and maybe join a hobby circle. [AOL News] Keep reading »

    Quickies!: Potentially Offensive Cartoon, Snuggie Pub Crawl, & Conan Says Bye To NYC

  • In yesterday’s New York Post, there was a cartoon suggesting that the stimulus bill was so bad that a monkey might as well have written it. However, it can be construed that the monkey is President Obama, and many are taking offense. What do YOU think? [Huffington Post]
  • The cartoon didn’t slow down The First Lady. Michelle Obama continues to shine as she hosted a Black History Month celebration at the White House yesterday for sixth and seventh graders. [Bossip]
  • Giorgio Armani is best known for his fashion line. But he’s trying to be noticed for his cooking abilities as well. The designer just opened a new Italian restaurant in NYC. [AOL]
