Facebook’s “100 Biggest Sluts” Page Creator Could Face Stalking Charges

The Australian who created a Facebook page called “100 Biggest Sluts of Ballarat” will soon learn the list was not only cruel, but criminal! [FYI: Ballarat is a regional city in Victoria, Australia.] Police say the 60 women who contacted them after being called “sluts” on the nasty page (which has since been taken down) could each seek a charge of stalking against the site’s creator. Yes, stalking. Apparently, slut-shaming one’s fellow Ballarat-ians online is illegal. “Stalking covers quite a large range of actions and one of them is using the computer to offend or harass a particular person,” Detective Craig Dooley told Perth Now. Cops say they interviewed someone in relation to the incident, but are still looking for more info.

We hope this Facebook-ing fool never gets laid again. That’ll teach him/her to mess with angry sluts! [Perth Now and The Age] Keep reading »

Cate Edwards speaks! This week’s People magazine will feature an interview with Elizabeth Edwards and her 28-year-old daughter, who will open up publicly for the first time about her dad, John Edwards, and her mother’s cancer. Cate has also penned a essay for People about her mom. “There are the things she taught without words [like] how to continue to live your life on your own terms when it somehow becomes savaged by people you never invited into it,” Cate wrote. The mother/daughter duo are promoting the paperback release of Resilience, Elizabeth’s bestselling memoir.

Cate, 28, is a graduate of Princeton and Harvard, a former editorial assistant for Vanity Fair and now clerks for a federal judge in Washington, D.C. Cate has every reason to play the Lindsay Lohan card — I mean, what would you do if your dad cheated with a professional wackadoodle like Rielle Hunter? — but the girl is nothing but a class act.

How To Deal With Depression When You’re Trying To Get Pregnant

I try to divorce Michael at least once a month. I blame this on my PMDD (premenstrual dysphoric disorder, or what I like to call “PMS on crack”), though I’ve also been diagnosed with chronic depression and anxiety and, once, a psychopharmacologist told me I had obvious bipolar tendencies. Either way, I’m not the easiest person to live with (as if you didn’t already feel bad enough for my husband, due to my sexual issues). Sometimes, I fling my wedding band across the room, or lock myself into the bathroom, or scream myself raw. And once, I dumped a freshly-baked pan of cookies on top of his freshly-cleaned clothes and stomped up and down on them. Keep reading »

Have A No-Chick-Flick Night
The terms “Julia Roberts,” “meet cute,” and “wedding” are hereby banned from your home starting right…now. You might feel tempted to watch “Clueless” or a similar favorite for the billionth time (you have Paul Rudd’s declaration-of-love speech memorized), but you will not. You will rent movies in which the heroine is a strange, or strong, or talented, or an ass-kicker. Because, let’s face it: Kate Hudson’s recurring character is a bit of a milquetoast, and Hugh Grant’s is kind of a jerk. Here’s a list to get you started, after the jump…
