10 (More) Male Literary Characters We’d Like To Bone

If you want to escape your real love life, why not get lost in the pages of a great book … with a sexy leading man? I mean who hasn’t wished that they were coming home to Mr. Darcy after a long, stressful day? Asylum compiled a list of their 15 most sex-worthy ladies of literature after reading Lemondrop’s top 15 most do-able literary men. But I think they forgot a few characters with whom you might really want to curl up in bed. After the jump, 10 more fictional characters we really, really wish were real. So we could bone them. Sometimes it pays to be an avid reader. 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 …

Blind Item: Which Country Singer Suffers From Foot-In-Mouth Syndrome?

Happy Hump Day! Blind item time! Via Crazy Days And Nights:

This A-list female country singer just keeps on winning people over. At a recent event a paraplegic teenager in a wheelchair had been waiting with his mom for about two hours so he could meet his favorite singer and get her autograph and hopefully a picture with her. Well, after the event, the singer came by and said, “Don’t you look cute in that chair.” The teenager then asked for the singer’s autograph and she said, “Oh sorry, not today, I’m too tired, but I hope you feel better soon.” She then walked away.

Hmm, my guess is either Taylor Swift (who got flack after that whole “photographed with a guy in a swastika T-shirt” debacle) or Kellie Pickler (who is known for being on the dim side). What do you think? Keep reading »

Festive Fragrances: New Ralph By Ralph Lauren Candles

As a girl who has been wearing Ralph by Ralph Lauren perfume since she was a teen, I’m intrigued by this new line of RALPH candles, which might just be the answer to finding a signature scent for the home. The collection includes brightly-colored soy candles in a few families of fragrances. Some give off soft floral notes (Flower Shop; Flowering Vines), while other varieties like Lemon Kick are bolder and fruity. They’re also timely with two holiday-centric flavors. If you’re not buying for yourself, this would make a great gift for a younger sister, as it’s fun and a bit sophisticated at the same time. [$25, Macys.com via Teen Vogue] Keep reading »

  • The District of Columbia legalized same-sex marriage yesterday … [L.A. Times]
