A big trial is going on right now in Los Angeles. Lori Drew, 49, the woman who is accused of using harassing a 13-year-old girl on MySpace, leading to her suicide, was charged with one count of conspiracy and three counts of accessing computers without authorization, to which she pleaded not guilty. The trial is our country’s first that deals with cyber bullying, so what happens to Drew is kind of a big deal. To bring you up to speed on things, here’s what led Drew to court… Keep reading »

Well, the online matchmaker said Wednesday it will launch a website to cater to same-sex singles seeking long-term relationships as a result of a settlement with New Jersey’s Civil Rights Division. More details after the jump. Keep reading »
I’ve been in a relationship for 10+years (we’re both Capricorns) and we got married last April. We own a house together, have a dog, etc. He is a computer geek (I’m an amateur photographer), however, a couple of years ago he traded in his hardcore gaming lifestyle for a hobby we could share together — racing his car. We had great fun getting away for the weekends and spending time together.
Unfortunately, this came to a screeching halt a few months ago when he wrecked his car at the track and the insurance failed to pay. So, on top of having his hobby squashed, we were stressed about the car we are still paying off and he turned back to video games to fill his time…all of his free time. At our core we are very different. I like to go out, have a good time, be social and have fun. He likes to stay at home and play games. To defy him, I started going out with close friends all of the time, including one guy friend in particular, who I had hooked up with years ago. He’s a Gemini.

A certain woman in my life wants to know what guys are thinking when a breakup goes down. So here it goes. We think about beer. And drinking it. And how drinking said beer will help us get lucky with the la-a-dies. The ladies with the righteous hoots.
Alright, fine. That was a sweeping gender generalization. A crude, cheap oversimplification of the masculine condition… But that doesn’t stop it from being true. Keep reading »
Edward Cullen and Bella Swan, ZOMG, I mean Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, were on “The Today Show” this morning to promote “Twilight” which opens in theaters tomorrow. This interview was awkward to watch for a number of reasons, the first being that Pattinson and Stewart seem really burnt out by all the fan obsession, Stewart especially. I kind of get the feeling that Pattinson likes the fact that he can get all the booty he wants, but frankly, it also seems like the only booty he wants is Kristen’s.
Anyway, it was also awkward because “Today” featured a lot of footage of fans going absolutely apes**t for Pattinson, declaring things like, “He’s the love of my life! The reason for my existence! And I love him!” And that was just coming from a teenager — at the end of the segment, Meredith Viera dragged Pattinson and Stewart out into the cold to answer questions from “Twilight” fans, including one woman, who had to be in her late 20s, whose head seemed poised to explode. Clip above! (Oh, also, Robert, time to wash the hair. It looks like it smells.) Keep reading »
Oh Fabio, you’re soooooo sexy! Syke! But he is always good for laughs, so check out the shirtless (yet still wearing a jacket) bottled blonde “stud” doing what he does best — talking about himself, wooing women paid to fall at this feet, and flexing. From the boys who brought you Angela Lansbury’s camel toe and the Freddie Krueger beauty mask, here is another video to gawk at — a retrospective of ’90s-era Fabio romancing the small screen. I can’t believe it’s not better! [Everything Is Terrible]

My older brother tortured me through childhood, but now he’s saving my lifestyle. According to a new study, I’m less likely to spawn thanks to my big bro. Yay, baby free forever! (Can you tell I don’t want kids?) Sheffield University researchers, who poured over birth, marriage, and death records, discovered that anyone, male or female, with an older male sibling is 5% less likely to have children than people with female older siblings. They also have children later in life and space their babies out. (Hmm, maybe we are just wiser?) On the downside, guys’ younger siblings are much more likely to be shorter. So that explains why my brother is over six foot while I’m one inch away from legally being a little person! The theory being tossed around is that first-born males took a toll on your mom back in the womb and researchers believe it has even more psychological implications on the siblings that came after. In time, I hope science will give me the go ahead to send my big bro my therapy bills. Meanwhile, I’m just grateful he’s helping me keep my curves childproof. There’s only room for one baby in this family — me! [Daily Mail]
