This week’s column was inspired by a recent article on MarieClaire.com entitled “Why Men Prefer Innocent Girls To Bad Girls.”
The other day, some guys and I were chillaxing in my pal Josh’s sweet hot tub doing what guys do which is hang out and be real and we were discussing “innocent” girls versus “wang-hungry she-beasts.” Across the board, the guys agreed they prefer an “innocent” woman, like a nun or a coma patient or a 16-year-old girl, over a “bitch.” And then Josh was all “dude you got a boner” and everybody high-fived and a couple hours later we all put our clothes back on.

The lord giveth and taketh away. (Yeah, I pre-apologize for that intro line—it’s in poor taste.) Last week, we learned that Tareq and Michaele Salahi—the White House party crashers who ended up on “The Real Housewives of DC“—would be checking in to “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew” for its new season along with Bai Ling, Michael Lohan, and (surprise!)

Like many women, I’m constantly looking for ways to highlight my leg fat and emphasize the parts of my body I feel most uncomfortable with.

When I was 13, I started locking myself in my lair and writing angsty poetry, which caused people (especially my parents) to assume that I was a lonely, depressed, misanthropic hermit. As it turns out, I was spending some very necessary and healthy time alone. A new study at Harvard University found that spending time alone is crucial for us to have fully-developed personalities. Sufficient quality time with numero uno has been linked to improved focus, memory, creativity, mood, and even better social skills when we finally emerge from our caves. Keep reading »
Occasionally, there are things that make you reevaluate what you’ve been doing wrong thus far in life, how you somehow have failed where others — with bigger drug problems or rattier hair — have succeeded. Amy Winehouse “designing” for Fred Perry is one of those things. Ms. Winehouse just launched her second collection for the legacy brand and it’s … actually kind of awesome. We’ve selected a few of our favorite looks — including a Hawaiian print shirt with Amy’s likeness on it — after the jump. Keep reading »
