What the heck is a Lipstick Tomboy? According to Clutch Magazine, a Lipstick Tomboy is a woman who is the opposite of the “girly girl” and is “clean, stylish and confident living by their own definition of womanliness.” The Lipstick Tomboy doesn’t care about trends and wears clothing that suits her body instead of what the fashion world dictates. OK, that sounds like most of the women I know, but writer Sky Obercam gives more details on this type of woman, and, it turns out, a Lipstick Tomboy simply sounds like a lazy woman who doesn’t mind looking like crap on a daily basis. She doesn’t own an iron, has holes in her clothing (that could easily be mended), has spots on her clothes, and leaves her eyebrows ungroomed. I also think the Lipstick Tomboy would be too lazy to put on lipstick. Keep reading »
Aren’t we single ladies always on the quest to find the perfect man? Just yesterday, I was on that quest. And then I met him. For the sake of this post, let’s call this perfect man John. John is smart, nice, good-looking, Jewish (which matters a lot to my mother), and would spoil me rotten as my boyfriend. He’s not just your average amount of smart; he’s employed at a top web company (one you use on a regular basis) and is destined to be more successful than anyone I know.
He’s not just your average amount of nice; he has mastered chivalry to a T and is so caring that it makes my judgmental soul squirm. And he’s also not just sort of good-looking. Rather, every time one of my friends meets him, their first response is: “Wow, John’s hot.” I can totally tell they’re eying him for themselves. Oh, and did I mention that John’s after me like Tyra on the search for “America’s Next Top Model“?
I should be in heaven, right? But I’m not. Because as perfect as he is, John just doesn’t make me want to rip my clothes off. And I don’t know why. Keep reading »
An article in the November issue of Glamour discusses beautiful woman who are larger than standard sample sizes and continues the discussion started by a photo of plus-size model Lizzie Miller from the magazine’s September issue. Along with the article, titled, “Oh. Wow. These Bodies Are Beautiful,” is the above photograph of seven models who are all closer to size 12 than size 2.
The photograph is beautiful and pictures Miller, Crystal Renn, Amy Lemons, Ashley Graham, Kate Dillon, Anansa Sims, and Jennie Runk. The article raises a few good points, i.e., we should stop nitpicking about minor flaws and feel comfortable in our bodies. But why did the models have to be naked? Keep reading »
I’ve been getting increasingly pissy about the lack of celebrities speaking out against Roman Polanski
compared to those — like Whoopi Goldberg
— who’ve been making lame excuses for him raping a 13-year-old girl and evading jail time. But not Chris Rock! The comic was on “Jay Leno” last night, promoting his new movie, “Good Hair,” and he let his mouth run on the subject. Clip above! Keep reading »
There are some things that you would think wouldn’t follow you into adulthood. Fear of the dark, a love for Disneyland, jelly sandals. One of the more annoying ones: acne. Seriously, isn’t that supposed to be one of those things that just scars your high school experience? Waking up to see new pimples when you’re in your 20s? Gah!
If you’re like me, you’ve been plagued with acne since a teenager, and while it’s not as severe as say, those scary Proactive commercials, it’s an issue that’s persisted into your adult years despite your attempts to solve the problem. Considering Accutane? Read on to find out about my experience.

Last night, David Letterman nipped an extortion plot in the bud and told his audience that some mysterious person was demanding $2 million to keep quiet evidence that he’d slept with women on his staff. What is it about David Letterman that attracts the crazies? First there was that plot to kidnap his son, then Joaquin Phoenix, and now this? Finally, we’re getting the details on who did the extorting. The main suspect is apparently Robert “Joe” Halderman, a “48 Hours” producer who’s been nominated for an Emmy. He was arrested and his job has been suspended. [Huffington Post]
But how did he know that Letterman had dallied with women on his staff? Because … one of the women is his ex-girlfriend, Stephanie Birkitt. Birkitt interned at the “Late Show” in 1996 and later became Dave’s assistant. She appeared on the show multiple times, covering the Winter Olympics, interviewing “Survivor” cast-offs, and playing the character Vicki. Apparently, she and Letterman started doing the horizontal polka, though their affair supposedly ended before Letterman had a baby with his long-term girlfriend in 2003. Halderman either found out or was shown Birkitt’s diary entries, letters, and photos of Birkitt’s that proved she was banging Letterman. Keep reading »
If you thought Sarah Palin’s moment in the spotlight was over after the election, you were seriously mistaken. The “average hockey mom/governor” won’t give up that fast. Already she has transformed herself from politician to author, completing her memoir and landing on the bestseller list before the chronicle has even been released. But that’s not all. Remember when we predicted that eventually a lipstick would be inspired by and named after her? Sadly prescient. Keep reading »
Elizabeth Smart was found more than six years ago, but her kidnapper, Brian Mitchell, has still not gone to trial. His lawyers claim that he’s a complete looney, and it’s been an uphill battle to prove that he’s fit to stand trial. Makes you oh so proud of our legal system, right? Yesterday, at Mitchell’s official competency hearing, Elizabeth took the stand for the first time to tell what exactly happened to her in the nine months she was missing. The details are horrifying: After Mitchell took her at knife-point from her house, he made her hike three miles into the mountains to a campsite he’d set up. There, he performed a “marriage ceremony” and raped her. She was 14 at the time. He raped her every day for the next nine months. She said, “Anytime I showed resistance or hesitance, he would turn to me and say, ‘The Lord has commanded you to do this. You have to experience the lowest form of humanity to experience the highest.’” Mitchell forced her to drink alcohol, to take drugs, and to watch porn. At one point, Mitchell chained her to a tree. Elizabeth says that Mitchell planned to kidnap a second girl to “marry,” though luckily the plot didn’t work out. Keep reading »
