What Was The Worst Job You Ever Had?

I am the queen of bad jobs. I had my first at age 15 when my dad informed me I’d be working at the local dry cleaners for the summer. It was a very long three months at $5 an hour. I took my next bad job as a hostess at Chili’s thinking it would be a good job. Free Awesome Blossoms! It was not as awesome as I thought. It turns out hungry people are a**holes and onion rings are so much grosser when you know how they’re made. I quit after I discovered a couple having sex in a booth. Eww! Keep reading »

Maggie Gyllenhaal Discovers A Vibrator In “Hysteria”

The time before the invention of the vibrator is a dark period of world history which I prefer not to think about. But imagine, ladies, if you will, a period when all of a woman’s problems were attributed to “hysteria,” a vague pathological affliction which doctors found could best be cured by applying pressure to a woman’s most delicate regions. A suffering woman could be relieved of her hysteria by hand, of course, but the world needed a device to get the job done more quickly. “Hysteria” premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival next month and stars Hugh Dancy as a young doctor in Victorian England and Maggie Gyllenhaal as his boss’s daughter, who knows at the root of all these hysterics is a need for pleasure. God bless electricity, that’s all I have to say. [YouTube] Keep reading »

Danielle Staub Says Reality TV Made Her Suicidal

Disclaimer: You may want to flog me for what I’m about to say, but I must say it. As a person who has suffered a serious bout of depression, I have the utmost empathy for anyone who is suicidal. But I just have to question Danielle Staub‘s motivation for doing an interview with “Entertainment Tonight” in which she says that she was suicidal after appearing on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” It seems a little like she is trying to capitalize on Russell Armstrong’s suicide because, in true form, she jumped at the opportunity to force herself into the spotlight. Now, if I’m wrong about Staub’s motivations, then I’m sorry. But why would she share her suicidal thoughts with her kids? And why would she tell us about it? Why, if she thinks the pressures of reality television contributed to her depression, would she continue to be part of that world? (She is currently a cast member on Vh1′s “Famous Food”). Something about her confession doesn’t sit right with me. This woman needs to sit down with a professional, not “ET.” [ONTD]

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Lies About His Porn Viewing”

I’ve been with my boyfriend — my first boyfriend — for almost two years now. I am away from home at school, only an hour and half drive away, and we see each other every weekend. He stays with me when he comes to visit. Recently the past couple of times he has come to visit, he uses my computer while I am away for class for a couple hours. At this recent account, I came back to my room and noticed that the floor was a little damp in a certain area right next to his chair. I asked him what happened and he said he spilled something. Later after he left, I was on my computer and up popped up porn sites. Then it dawned on me that he had not spilled something on the floor … if you know what I mean … So, I checked my history and found even more porn sites. According to the timeline of the days’ events, I know he looked at this right after I left for class, so right when he woke up and got out of bed.

Hangin’ Tough … With A New Kids On The Block Homemade Sweater

Necessity, and extreme fandom, are the mothers of invention, right? That’s exactly what prompted German mom Joanne Conklin to knit these totally out of control New Kids on the Block and Vanilla Ice sweaters for her teenage daughter. Before she knew it, she’d launched a full on NKOTB knitwear empire. “We were living in Germany at the time and bands like New Kids On The Block were huge with the teen set,” says Joanne. “However, there were no fan T-shirts to be found anywhere, so I decided to knit sweaters. I made one for my daughter, then her friends, and word-of-mouth spread and the next thing you know I’d knit over a hundred of them, selling all but about six of them.” And you can understand why. After all, these are no mere cableknit jawns [This will be the last time I allow Julie to use her obscure Philly slang in a post, FYI. -- Editor], but rather, works of Joey McIntyre-inspired magic. More sweater bliss after the jump! [Craftzine] Keep reading »

How Will Bravo Handle Russell Armstrong’s Death On “The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills”?

The second season of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” is set to premiere on September 5th. Bravo had already sent off screeners of the first episode to the press, which features Russell Armstrong‘s then-wife, Taylor Armstrong, buying lingerie in an attempt to spice things up and talking—and even bursting into tears—about how they were going to couple’s therapy. A week before Armstrong was found dead in an apparent suicide, he talked to People about his role on the show and said that he was feeling extreme emotional distress about it. “It got really overwhelming,” he said. “When you get a TV show involved and all the pressure, it just takes it to a whole new level. … We were pushed to extremes.” Keep reading »
