Prince William And Kate Middleton Have Lots Of Exes On Their Wedding Guest List

With Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s wedding inching closer, speculation is reaching a fever pitch about who has been included on the 350-person guest list. Famous folks like Elton John, Guy Ritchie, and David and Victoria Beckham made the cut, naturally. But the British press has recognized a few other familiar faces who received invitations. Two of Kate’s exes are on the guest list—Rupert Finch, her boyfriend at St. Andrews before William, and Willem Marx, who she dated as a teenager. And William has invited four exes—Jecca Craig (his assumed first love), Rose Farquhar (his first girlfriend), Arabella Musgrave (who he dated before college), and Isabella Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe (who he supposedly made a play for in 2004). That’s a whole lot of former paramours who’ll be watching the couple say “I do.” Many people subscribe strictly to the rule: no exes at a wedding because it can be awkward for the couple, not to mention strange for the ex. But others make exceptions since, over time, exes can become extremely close friends. Where do you stand on this issue? Keep reading »

Victoria’s Secret Is … Her Shoulder Is Broken

Poor model Candice Swanepoel can’t win. First she’s lambasted for being too skinny, and now some Photoshop genius has attempted to solve the problem by adding bulk to her in the shoulder area. It seems Swanepoel’s shoulders wouldn’t look so weird if a proper shadow had been added, but without, her arm just looks out of whack. [Photoshop Disasters] Keep reading »

Billie Piper On “Secret Diary Of A Call Girl,” Sex Work And Feminism

“When I first started playing [Belle/Hannah], when I first read the script, I found it very hard to believe that those kind of women in that profession really [could be feminists]. I was quite judgmental about it. I thought ‘I’m not entirely sure that there’s any way that you could be that way and feel liberated and independent and call yourself an out-and-out feminist.’ It’s a very gray area. What happens with the character of Belle is that it starts off being, ‘This is who I am, this is what I am, it’s all fine, I’m in control,’ to feeling like she questions her ideas of feminism, and mostly down to the relationships that she forms with Ben and other people. It’s something she starts to question more and more. Actually nowadays, it’s really hard to define feminism in a way, because it’s hard saying ‘we’re strong women, we’re career women, we make our own cash, and [yet] we wear provocative clothes, and say provocative things,’ and the whole idea feels slightly flawed now to some extent. … It is a massive kind of compromise. In one breath it’s like ‘this is my life’ and, on the surface, very enviable, but it would take a certain kind of person to be able to do that as a profession.”

Billie Piper, who plays Hannah/high-class prostitute Belle on “Secret Diary of a Call Girl,” on being called out by her boyfriend Ben’s mom about not being a good feminist. Do you agree with her? [TV Squad] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: “In The Bedroom, Inequality Beats Equality”

  • “Men are aroused by being dominant and by submissive women, women are aroused by being submissive and by dominant men,” writes Ogi Ogas, Ph.D. in Psychology Today. “In the bedroom, inequality beats equality.” Those broad sweeping statements are fighting words, PT! Speaking strictly for myself, I agree with Ogi. But I wonder if other folks find this blanket statement about bedroom dynamics to ring true. Read the blog post and let me know in the comments.
