Tiger Beat: Woods Is Allegedly Paying His Wife To Stay With Him


Y’all, the Tiger Woods drama is getting a whole lot juicier! After admitting to “transgressions” yesterday on his website, Tiger’s got one alleged mistress set to hold a news conference later today while new details are coming out about a possible multimillion dollar payout to his wife, Elin Nordegren. The Daily Beast is reporting that, as of yesterday evening, Elin “has been offered a $5 million payment immediately if she agrees to stay—and her prenuptial agreement is being revised to give her up to an additional $55 million.” That would bring her total payout if she stays with Tiger for seven more years to a whopping $80 million. Basically, she needs to be “a dutiful wife in showing up with him at social events and in public as if they were still the perfect couple, and sign a nondisclosure form that will prevent her from ever telling her story.” The Daily Beast says: “even if she lasts only two more years, she’ll still walk away with nearly twice what she was entitled to under the original prenup.” So, let’s get this straight: It’s OK for straight people to turn their marriages into business arrangements, but if you’re gay, you better not even think about marrying for love. Who is threatening the sanctity of marriage more, hmm? [via The Daily Beast] Keep reading »

Frisky Q&A: Erica Kennedy, Author Of “Bitch Lit” Novel “Feminista”

Erica Kennedy is known to many readers for her hip-hop novel Bling, but her latest novel, Feminista, has been making waves for its so-called entry into the “bitch lit” genre and its unapologetically ballsy protagonist, Sydney, a writer who finds love almost despite herself.

Check out the interview, after the jump! Keep reading »

A Whole Year Of Gilles Marini

Amelia sent me a link to this gorgeous, gorgeous 2010 calendar yesterday because she knows how much I love Gilles Marini, and holy, hot tomato on toast, it’s gonna be a good year! I couldn’t keep this all to myself — that would simply be cruel — so consider this post a public service announcement or an early Christmas gift from me to you. Go ahead — take a look at some beautiful photos of Marini, shot by his long-time friend, award-winning photographer Fred Goudon, whom he met 15 years ago while the two were fulfilling their military obligations in Paris. In fact, it was Goudon who helped launch Marini’s career. Thank you, Goudon, for giving us such a beautiful body of work. See a few more, after the jump … Keep reading »

Quotable: Sarah Jessica Parker Regrets Doing “Sex and the City” Movies

“Nothing can really describe what it’s like to have two new little girls. It’s been very different than when James arrived, since our family expanded in an untraditional way. We didn’t plan on having two, but were doubly blessed, and it’s been just wonderful. [Tabitha and Marion] just turned four months old today! One would prefer to be held 24 hours a day, and the other is already suffering from type A issues. It’s been amazing but complicated because of my current work schedule, which I have enormous regrets about. [...] It is the eternal conflict of every working woman, and I am not complaining, because I’ve done this to myself. And I have a wonderful, wonderful nanny who allows me to be a working person. The great challenge for me is to be all things to all people; I want to be a great mother, and I want to feel good when I’m at work. But it is hard.”

The “This Ain’t Beverly Hills 90210 XXX” Trailer For Which You Have Not Been Waiting


Hey, it’s the trailer for “This Ain’t Beverly Hills 90210 XXX,” the X-rated send-up of “Beverly Hills 90210″! Something about watching this (totally SFW) video makes me feel sad, dirty, and depressed. Why, Donna, why? Also, is nothing sacred? And that guy does not look like Steve Sanders at all. According to the press release, Brandon has a three-way at the Peach Pit. Sometimes, I wonder when these porn spoofs are going to stop, because I don’t know about you, but I have had about enough of them. What’s next? “This Ain’t Doctor Zhivago”? Keep reading »

Frisky Rant: Men Don’t Cheat Because Their Wives Are Ugly

When my high school boyfriend cheated on me, I found out the other girl’s Instant Messenger screen name and “confronted” her online. (Not the most mature move, I know. But give me a break! I had just turned 17.) You know what this bitch had the audacity to say to me? “I’ve seen a picture of you! No wonder he cheated.” Owww.

Sadly, that dopey logic is not confined to teenage soccer players who give hickeys to other girls’ boyfriends; it has cycled over and over and over in my mind as this alleged Tiger Woods affair has played out. Surely you, like me, have heard numerous friends or significant others say something to the effect of, “How could he have cheated on his wife? She’s so gorgeous!” Yes, Elin Nordegren is a freaking blonde-haired Swedish former model and her turd husband allegedly still cheated on her. What I want to know is why we insist a woman’s beauty—which is highly subjective!—is some kind of barometer—which is highly shallow!—of whether or not her hubby will cheat. Keep reading »

10 Chic & Easy Holiday Decorating Ideas

habitually chic pomanders jpg
Every year when the holidays roll around, I find myself completely unprepared decor-wise. Sure, I cut down my own tree (the trees for sale in NYC are ridiculously priced), throw some ornaments on it and pull out the nine-dollar Target stockings I glitter-penned names on to, but there’s just something so … JV about it all. I’m all for kitschy holiday decor—what other time of year is overdoing the tacky so appropriate?—but this year I want to go for a bit more understated and cl-cl-classy look. Everyone needs a little decorating inspiration, right? I found a few great ideas from great bloggers out there. First up, above, is a Habitually Chic decor tradition: Pomanders. They’re clove-studded oranges, or in this case clementines, that fill the house with a great scent and look pretty displayed with greenery and pine cones. Oh, and notice the color-coordinated books too? Click through for more ideas …
