Plan A Stress-Free Girls Getaway

It would be hard to find a more fitting pair than of sex and travel. Here, one adventurer, who has kissed an uncounted number of men who don’t share her zip code, shares her experience combining the two through more than 30 countries.

A Few Questions For Casserole Queen Emily Farris

When we think of casseroles, the first thing that comes to mind is a green been monstrosity that an aunt used to force upon us at Thanksgiving. Just imagining it makes us ill. But Emily Farris is set on changing our minds about casseroles, or “hotdishes” as Minnesotans like her call them. Her book, Casserole Crazy: Hot Stuff for Your Oven, came out last month and includes yummy recipes from her own repertoire, as well as from big-name chefs like Bobby Flay, Paula Deen, and Donatella Arpaia. Emily was nice enough to take a break from cooking to chat with us about her passion for vintage Pyrex and how she seduces men… Keep reading »

The Boob Tube: What’s On TV This Thanksgiving Day 2008 And Beyond

Thanksgiving Day isn’t just for eating turkey. You can also watch some of the best TV of the year because all those people that aren’t cooking need something to watch besides football. All three “Godfather” movies will air on Thursday, but other classic movies will also be on the tube. Friday is a great day for marathon watching, and if you can’t find anything new to watch on Saturday, I suggest you channel surf. And don’t forget, Amelia, will liveblog “Britney Spears: For the Record” on Sunday at 10 pm. Keep reading »

    We See Chick Flicks: Four Christmases

    Starring Reese Witherspoon, Vince Vaughn, Jon Favreau, Sissy Spacek, Robert Duvall, Tim McGraw, & Kristen Chenoweth

    Let me start by saying that I’m probably not the most biased reviewer, considering I’ve been dying to see this movie since it was cast. In terms of pure movie enjoyment and giggles, Reese Witherspoon is my favorite actress and Vince Vaughn is my favorite actor. Could I have been more excited to find out that they were in a rom-com together? Um, no. As I’d hoped, Reese was perfectly adorable as always and Vince Vaughn, playing himself, per usual, had me almost peeing myself from the beginning. Needless to say, this is the perfect post-Turkey Day movie. Light, fluffy, funny, and, oh hell, heartwarming. Full review after the jump… Keep reading »

    Our Theories On Kim Zolciak’s Hair

    Kim Zolciak finally discussed her hair/wig on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion special last night. We were excited to learn what the real deal is with that obviously fake hair. But sadly, Kim let us down because she really didn’t reveal anything. She said she had been very sick, lost weight, her hair fell out and a “doctor friend” told her she had cancer. She then admitted, as a total afterthought (like no one would hear), that she didn’t actually, have cancer, but had “other stuff going on.” Since we may never know what was “going on,” unless she writes a tell-all book, we’ve come up with some theories of our own. Check them out, and suggest your own, after the jump… Keep reading »
