Oprah Turns On Ellen DeGeneres

For only the second time ever, Oprah is sharing the cover of O Magazine. Ellen DeGeneres shot four covers with Oprah, but this one where Oprah is plugging in her lights is the best. Oh, and the last time Oprah shared her cover, it was with Michelle Obama. Nice company, E! Keep reading »

Catherine’s Style Diary: Tuesday

What I’m Wearing Today:

I have trouble walking when I wear tights because they make my shoes really slippery, so today I put a pair of semi-hidden yellow ankle socks on top of this maroon pair. I say “semi” because Amelia noticed them and said, “Are those your bowling socks?!” (They are.) [We bought the same pair when we were playing in a bowling league last winter and needed socks. -- Editor] I hadn’t planned on anyone seeing them, but now I think the pop of color is kind of fun.

How To Keep Your Skin Soft This Winter

The second it starts getting chilly, my skin get dry and flaky with a quickness. It’s gross and I kind of thought there wasn’t much to do it about it for years. As it turns out though, almost any level of winter time skin dryness is fixable. I started experimenting with various products a couple years back and I think I’ve got the perfect mix now. If you dry out like mad, too, take the jump and I’ll tell you how to control the situation. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “My Internet Boyfriend Is A Bisexual Cross-Dresser”

I’m dating a guy I met on the internet. We have never met but we text all day, and every night we talk on the phone and so far it’s been great. He’s really nice, very attentive and we have even said ‘I love you.’ But the problem is that he is bisexual and cross-dresses a few times a month. I’m kind of confused, but at least he is honest — we have talked about it and he has tried to calm me down and explain it to me. But I’m actually scared and I don’t know if I should run or accept him for who he is, have fun with the situation, and trust that he is going to be faithful and that he really loves me, because at the end of the day he is nicer than most guys I have dated. I really don’t know what to do, and I have to decide fast because he is coming to see me soon. Should I run? Do bi guys cross-dress or is that something only gay guys do? — Internet Girlfriend

Michelle Obama’s Family Tree Has A White Branch

Genealogists have been busy reconstructing the First Lady’s family tree and what they’ve discovered is shocking—but really only to Debbie Shields, who is apparently Michelle Obama’s cousin. And yes, she’s white as can be. But are we really surprised by this? As most of us know, there were many African and American couplings (both consensual and non-consensual) that took place during the times of slavery—and Michelle’s great, great grandmother Melvinia was no exception. As it turns out, Melvinia was impregnated at age 15 by plantation owner Charles Marion Shields who is also Debbie’s great, great grandfather. In case you got lost there in the twisted branches, that makes the two fourth cousins. While Debbie and her 17-year old son Brandon think it’s “awesome” to be related to the first lady, they couldn’t believe it at first. Believe it, folks! So what do you think? Awkward family reunion or positive step forward for race relations in this country? [Newser] Keep reading »

The 10 Friends You Need To Make Before You Turn 30

Our editor Amelia is turning 30 in a week and her essay on the subject really resonated with Frisky readers, both younger and older than 30. With that in mind, we’ll be reposting our “Before 30” series, which originally ran late last year, over the next few weeks. Enjoy!

From the time you were in pre-school and your mom picked your play dates, you’ve been building relationships with people. And sometimes, when you have things in common and get along with one another, you become friends. You might think that you have enough friends in your life, but really, can you ever have too many? Plus, you never know when you’re going to need a hand saw, so you better have someone in your cell phone who owns one. Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Dior Lip Maximizing Gloss

We’re not entirely sure that Dior’s Lip Maximizer gloss actually made our lips look larger, but it did make them look gloriously shiny and leave us with a tingling sensation that we would like to believe meant it was working. The gloss claims that it will help reshape the contours of your lips in 15 days, but we’re a bit skeptical of that claim. They looked a little more luscious (we think…) for a short period of time, but the light pink lip gloss doesn’t strike us as having the stamina to create lasting Angelina Jolie Mouth. That said, $30 is a lot to spend on a lip gloss with dubious plumping abilities. But the color is that perfect mix of sheer and sparkly that won’t leave you looking like a hooker if you wear it during the day, so if you’ve got the money to spend, it’s kind of the perfect wear-it-whenever gloss, and the pretty packaging doesn’t hurt, either.

Are You Allergic To Your Man’s Sperm?

So I’ve heard about this “sperm allergy” before but never really knew if it was true. Believe it or not, scientists confirm that not only is it a legitimate allergy—the technical name is “seminal plasma hypersensitivity”—but it’s also really common for women. Stats say that between 20,000 and 40,000 women in the U.S. are allergic to their man’s spunk. About 30 minutes after sex, sufferers may experience hives, swollen eyes, diarrhea, and breathing problems—the same symptoms common to food allergies. What are women suffering from this allergy supposed to do? Become celibate? Subscribe to a “sperm-free” diet? Carry around an epi-pen for sexytime? Not necessarily. Doctors say, aside from using condoms, there may also be a vaccine that can help woman’s body become more tolerant. Good news, I guess? [Glamour] Keep reading »
