Why Smart Women Fail At Relationships

When I first met my husband Noah ten years ago, if you had met me, you would have thought to yourself, “Now here is a smart woman. She’s getting her M.B.A, great job, confident. Here is a woman with tons of self esteem.” And you would have been right. That was all true. Which is why what I am about to tell you is even more shocking.

By our third date, Noah was so taken aback by my big reactions towards his small acts of kindness, that he felt compelled to take me by the hands and say to me, “Christine, I don’t know what is going to happen between the two of us, but regardless, you have to raise your standards for men.

Eau De George Clooney? 10 Strange Celebrity Fragrances

Sigh. Men everywhere almost had the chance to smell like George Clooney. George had been in talks with Coty Inc. to develop a fragrance, but apparently the deal went belly up after George’s people asked for more than $30 million to make it happen.

It seems like at this point, every celebrity has a fragrance. Some even have multiple—Mariah Carey has three, Kimora Lee Simmons has six, and Jennifer Lopez has a whopping 10. Ten! But in addition to the Elizabeth Taylors, Sarah Jessica Parkers, and Kate Mosses, who seem to be lifestyle arbiters, there are some very random celebs who’ve gotten their own scents. After the jump, the 10 we find the strangest.

Bill Clinton Turns Down “30 Rock” Cameo, But Says Yes To “The Hangover 2″

Okay, so I’m confused. “30 Rock” is about to film its 100th episode, and to mark the occasion Tina Fey extended an invitation to Bill Clinton to be a guest star on the show. Why? Most people seem to think that she wanted him to match wits with Alec Baldwin’s character, Jack Donaghy, who is super conservative. The whole thing could have been awesome and totally hilarious. Bill could even have played a few bars on the saxophone for good measure! But, his staff turned down the offer. “The request was made and immediately denied without asking him,” a Clinton rep said.
