There’s no better way to get everybody fighting than to bring up the “having kids” or “not having kids” debate. The so-called “mommy wars” are a surefire way to make everybody defensive!
But the discussion gets the nastiest and most infuriating when women with kids accuse women sans kids of being “selfish”—which happened repeatedly in the comment section when I posted a joke-y list last week — “10 Reads Not To Have Kids Now…Or Ever” — which was pegged to Cameron Diaz talking about childless women.

British cops want to question Lindsay Lohan about $400,000 worth of Dior jewelry that went missing after a photo shoot she did for Elle Magazine. They don’t think she took the expensive bling, but she was the last person seen wearing the stuff. [NY Daily News]
But I’m not so sure—Lindsay always seems to be hanging around when goods are ganked, and this isn’t the first time Lindsay has been caught
stealing up in a theft-related incident. Check out the very circumstantial evidence after the jump. Keep reading »
You may have heard that David Letterman and the governor of Alaska are in a bit of a tiff over jokes he made in reference to her family — particularly jokes he directed at one of her daughters. After much back and forth, Letterman apologized for the second time last night — this time, without sarcasm. Personally, I don’t think that he should have. Keep reading »
Sex and violence sell, and it’s as true in Hollywood today as it was during Shakespeare’s time. But combining the two seat-fillers tactics can often result in the opposite of sexy, and as many hot sex scenes involve a little bit of teeth and nails, the examples below represent the most borderline-disturbing sex scenes mainstream Hollywood has ever confronted us with.

Call it a slightly different sort fashion risk. Sheena Matheiken is a woman on a mission. With the help of clothing designer Eliza Starbuck, Matheiken is wearing a single dress every day for the next year. (Check out what she wore on day 47, above) The endeavor is called “The Uniform Project” and it’s “an exercise in sustainable fashion.” There are seven identical dresses, one for each day of the week. Every day she reinvents the dress with layers, accessories, et cetera—most of which are vintage, hand-made, or hand-me-down. And, I gotta say, she comes up with some pretty ingenious combinations and outfits! Think of it as wearing a daily uniform that doubles as a fund-raising effort for the Akanksha Foundation, a school project to fund uniforms and other educational expenses for slum children in India.

I think we all agree that magazines have gone a little overboard with Photoshopping photos in a quest for perfection on their beautiful, glossy pages. It can be detrimental to women’s attitudes about our own bodies when we see models with pencil-like legs and whittled-down waists. But what about when photo retouching makes women larger than they are in real life? Is that also bad for us “real” women? Keep reading »
“NYC Prep” is set to debut next week, and as I expected, reactions from the Upper East Side community have increased in anticipation of the premiere. The show, which will follow five privileged Manhattan teens, has trouble written all over it. Recently, we’ve learned a bit more about the filming process, parental reaction, and have even gotten to know one of the characters, Sebastian, better because he naively accepted our Facebook friend request!

The blogosphere is still debating over whether or not Kanye West and Amber Rose are really broken up or if they’re secretly still shopping and sexing each other. I, on the other hand, am more interested in knowing if they were ever that close to begin with. Walking around like the remix to Prince and Apollonia is cute and all, but I think everyone is forgetting one important fun fact: Amber seems to really really like women…Read more

In January, I left a live-in relationship after three years. The experience was all the sad adjectives you can imagine. But after the sobbing spells and the heavy drinking, the fog lifted—I was finally single again for the first time since after I graduated college.
Naturally, I expected my single friends to react with equal doses of giddy glee. For the record, I’m not the kind of girl who ditches my ladies when I’m dating someone. But lots of time does free up when you become single. Keep reading »
