Couple Who Met At Nazi Death Camp Just Celebrated 50 Years Of Marriage

When Herman Rosenblat was a teenager, he was in a Nazi death camp in Schlieben, Germany. Roma Radziki, a girl a couple years younger, worked at a farm outside the camp. The two saw each other on opposite sides of the fence one day and Roma threw Herman an apple. This continued every day, but the two never spoke because they were scared the guards would see them. Then, one day Herman told Roma she wouldn’t see him anymore. He thought he was going to die, but then the Russians came in and liberated the camp, and Herman ended up going to London to be an electrician. Meanwhile, Roma went to nursing school in Israel. Later, Herman moved to America and a friend told him he wanted to fix him up on a blind date. Reluctantly, Herman went, and as he and his date talked about their wartime experiences, Roma mentioned throwing apples over a fence to a boy. Herman said, “That was me” and proposed to her that night. Two months later she accepted, and this year, they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. [AP] Keep reading »

Walmart Sprays Summer’s Eve

If you thought douching with Lysol was hard on your ladyparts, take a gander at what Walmart suggest you use: a pressure cleaner. Talk about rode hard and put away wet! On their Canadian website, the chain retailer (accidentally?) added the wrong product picture to their “Summer’s Eve Feminine Spray Ultra-Extra Strength.” While our girl junk can get a funk, we doubt the lady-bits of Canada really require an industrial powered spray.

Mad Men: Don Draper’s Lost Weekend In Palm Springs

Last night’s episode of “Mad Men” gave viewers a much needed change of scenery — Don Draper and Pete Campbell flew out of Los Angeles to meet with various airline executives in pursuit of new business. But while Pete devoted his time to the task at hand, Draper took off for Palm Springs with a mysterious 21-year-old woman and band of pretentious, bohemian, and decidedly wealthy nomad friends. Don seemed to be incredibly intrigued by the laissez faire attitude of his latest conquest (yes, they did sleep together — so much for Don remaining faithful to his marriage) probably because she lives the kind of responsibility-free life that he kinda, sorta craves. It was fun to see the way L.A. was in the early ’60s, the bright sunshine of the poolside atmosphere a welcome change from the greyness of the Sterling Cooper offices. Also, Don Draper looks hot in sunglasses. Next week, it definitely seems like Don is going on a bit of a mission, taking time off from work to pursue something, or someone — there’s been a lot of questions surrounding what Don’s life was like as Dick Whitman. Might there be a love child out there? Keep reading »

Biden Injects Some Tranquility Into The Campaign

Although the presidential election is less than a month away, Senator Joe Biden has been looking more tranquil lately. He and Senator Barack Obama are ahead in the polls, but I seriously doubt that they are resting easy until November 4. So what could have Biden looking a little more calm and less wrinkled?

This Month In The Lady Mags: It’s All Political In The November Issues

Not sure if you want to spend $3.99 on this month’s Elle? Don’t worry, we’ve got Wendy Felton, editor of GlossedOver.com, here to tell you exactly what’s up on the sex, love, and relationships front in each month’s crop of lady mags.

Next month’s presidential election has totally saturated cable news, the internet, and even the November issues of the women’s magazines. (Check out the interviews with Michelle Obama and Cindy McCain in Marie Claire.) Reading relationship advice in magazines is a lot like watching the debates: There are applause-worthy truths, suggestions that make you roll your eyes and stomp out of the room in disgust (just me?), platitudes so vague as to be meaningless, and, of course, endless clichés.

    The Boob Tube: Hot Weekend TV For October 11-12th 2008

    The weekend is the perfect time to catch up on all the TV you’ve missed. Bravo will air marathons of “Project Runway” and “Rachel Zoe Project” just in time for the season finales next week. I’ll watch “Clean House: The Messiest Home in the Country” on Saturday to make myself feel less guilty about cleaning my own home. (I’m not really messy anyway.) Sunday continues to be the best for primetime viewing, especially the 10 o’clock hour. Keep reading »
