Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
After the jump, let’s look at other celebrity snackers.
The word on the street, or more accurately on the Daily Beast, is that Tiger Woods is putting up serious dough to get his wife Elin Nordegren to stay with him. The prenup that she signed in 2004 stated that she would get $20 million after 10 years of marriage. But, according to a source, a lawyer involved in the negotiations, Tiger has upped that to $75 million if she stays with him for seven years. And he also has allegedly offered her $5 million up front. These are huge amounts of money, and it’s really hard to imagine someone saying, “Yeah, I don’t want $75 million,” especially since this couple has two children together and, until recently, seemed happy together. But if Elin did walk out the door, I would have to give her props for sticking up for herself, à la Jenny Sanford. And then, she’d be free to play the field herself. Here’s who we think she should look into dating next. Keep reading »
Okay, we’re not so naive that we think that using the hair products Dita von Teese is hawking on her website will make us look like the burlesque diva or anything, but we can be kind of excited about it as the perfect gift idea for girly fans. Little known fact: Dita’s mama is a hair dresser. Second little known fact: Dita consulted with her to create this line of shampoo, conditioner and hairspray, which is available as a holiday gift package that’s all wrapped up nice and pretty and includes, drumroll please … a signed and kissed card by Dita herself. (Or, while we’re being realistic here, maybe an ample-lipped assistant?) Who cares — it’s a great gift idea, and at $49.95, dare we say, reasonable? Order it here. [BellaSugar] Keep reading »
It’s no secret that we’re a society of tough-love advocates. Simply turn on the TV, and any self-help series has at least one critical, blunt caregiver or role model trying to motivate participants wanting to change for the better. Each week, we can watch Dr. Phil, “The Biggest Loser” trainer Jillian Michaels, Simon Cowell, and countless others offer no-nonsense opinions and advice that often incite anger, frustration, and crying jags before they inspire change.

If his controversial performance was just a case of Adam feeling his new body, how are other once-overweight people feeling theirs? After the jump, a look at some of the most fabulous former fatties of note.
UPDATE: We’ve added quotes around the word “fatties” in the title of this post — which we should have done to begin with — to indicate that this is a roundup of celebrities talking about their weight loss and that the title was meant to be sarcastic. As many of you — and our text — have pointed out, most of these people were never actually very overweight. No offense was ever intended with the title.
I dread making small talk whenever I’m forced to socialize with people other than my closest friends. And while it’s annoying to have to explain to your uncle what you do for a living (one of mine doesn’t exactly get “blogging” as a career), the worst question to be asked is: “What’s new with you?”
Where do you even begin with a conversation starter such as this? If you don’t see the asker on a regular basis, they probably don’t care about the day-to-day activities that you’ve been up to, just the big, major, life-changing stuff. Only how many of us actually have big, major life-changing stuff to relay every six months or so?
I don’t want you to be stuck the way I did an acquaintance’s gathering a couple weeks ago. When someone asked me the dreaded question, I said, “Hmm … I can’t really think of anything” and felt like the most boring person on earth. After the jump, tips for preparing your answer. Keep reading »
Recently, the girlfriend of men’s nightmares took a golf club to her boyfriend’s Xbox 360, simply because he wasn’t showing her enough attention. A small (OK, a large) part of us gave a mental fist pump. After all, we know what it’s like to be overshadowed by our man’s favorite toys. The other part of us wanted to tell this guy to get a restraining order. Still, it’s fun to daydream about what we’d demolish, if only we weren’t afraid of incurring psycho status. And so, here are the top 10 items of his we wish we could toss out the window:
