For the last three months, I’ve been a bit of an unwitting viewer of “Dancing with the Stars.” I haven’t watched it religiously, I never set my DVR to record it, and I never watched an entire episode from start to finish, but most Monday evenings, I could probably be found tuning in for at least a few minutes. The truth is I watched for one reason and one reason only, and that was to lust over gorgeous Gilles Marini (the “naked guy” from the “Sex and the City” movie). If you’ve caught his dancing this season, you may have been as surprised as I was to learn he didn’t win the title last night. Instead, he was beat — by less than a percentage point — by perky 17-year-old gymnast, Shawn Johnson (the third Olympian to win DWTS — Kristi Yamaguchi and Apolo Anton Ohno are previous season winners).

I may have missed liveblogging last week’s episode, but I’ve since caught up with my watching, and, dudes, this s**t is awesome. Dina’s lips are so glossy. Teresa’s hair is so big, and her bubbies are so small. And Caroline. Oh, Caroline. The mama of the group. This show is like that terrible TV movie “La Bella Mafia,” only, well, not as awesome.

It’s Tuesday and you know what that means. It’s new record release time! This week, skip right past Lionel’s Richie’s Let’s Go. Trust me, it’ll make you want to never listen to or touch any relics from the ’80s, your Madonna lace gloves included. Here’s what’s really going on now: Tori Amos confesses, Eminem relapses, Iron & Wine gives us a sip, and Jarvis rocks out with his Cocker out.

Mia Washington of Dallas, Texas, gave birth to twins, but what she didn’t know was that an affair she had would be brought to light after the birth of her sons. Two of Washington’s eggs were fertilized by the sperm of two different men. After noticing that 11-month-old twins Justin and Jordan were developing different facial features, Washington and partner James Harrison decided the family should undergo DNA testing. Didn’t I see this on an episode of “All My Children”? Keep reading »
Wal-Mart is the land of sugary sodas, oversized bags of Cheese Doodles, and candy so cheap, you can’t afford not to buy it. So, you’d think having a Wal-Mart would be bad news for a town’s waistline. Not according to a new study. Economists at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro found that Wal-Marts “are associated with increased consumption of fruits and vegetables and reduced consumption of dietary fat.” Shocker.

Tonight, tune yourselves (or your DVRs) in to Fox for some singing amazingness. No, not the “American Idol” almost-finale (dear Lord, give it to Adam already!). It’s a sneak peek at “Glee,” a new musical show that features my two favorite things: bitchy one-liners and musical numbers.
It’s “Freaks and Geeks” meets “High School Musical” and rolled up in a candy-colored case with enough sarcasm to keep the cheese from getting too stinky. If the show is half as good as the trailer, you’ll know where to find me every Wednesday next fall, when the show airs. Here are five reasons why. Keep reading »
Is a steamier sex life the key to getting closer to God? According to Father Ksawery Knotz, it is. Sex as You Don’t Know It: For Married Couples Who Love God is chock full of stuff you didn’t learn in Sunday school. And it’s a bestseller in Poland. The inspiration? Football, aka soccer.
“I compare sex to a football game. There are games of different leagues, great and wonderful as well as boring and hopeless.”
