When it comes to dating, what many women would see as charming, I find repulsive. From nauseating nick-names to gag-worthy gifts, I’m often left wondering, Is this guy for real? While I love a caring man, I also love my space. Sometimes, sweet becomes just a little bit too sweet (yes, it’s possible for a guy to be too clingy). Is the new guy you’re dating cute, or is his behavior so sweet it’s mildly repulsive? Find out after the jump.

According to the preview for next week’s episode of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” Danielle, the single mother who was engaged 19 times and has ever-surprised eyebrows, gets upset when a deep, dark secret is revealed. Apparently the secret has to do with Danielle’s role in a book called Cop Without A Badge — and we’ve got the dirty details! The book is about Kevin Maher, a criminal turned informant for the New York Police Department and the FBI. Danielle was affiliated with Maher, but back then she went by the name Beverly, a prostitute with a hankering for doing lots of cocaine. Maher apparently left his wife and child for Beverly/Danielle, but she was bad news and was eventually arrested for extortion, possession, and kidnapping. Kidnapping! Check out her mug shot (above) — gorgeous. According to the book, Beverly/Danielle was still stripping in Jersey as late as 1992. This must have been just before she met her 19th fiance, got married, and had two kids.
Bravo is really pullin’ out all the stops to try and make this season of “Real Housewives” more dramatic than all the rest. A former coke whoring kidnapper really makes DeYawn, The C(o)untess, and Crazy-Eyed Vicky look boring. [NJ.com via DListed] Keep reading »
Whether you’re dancing the night away in Paris, London or New York City, at the end of the night one thing is inevitable besides the dudes clamoring to walk you home: sore feet. Luckily, for us high heel-loving girls there are Rollasoles.
Recently I was lucky enough to be in one such nightclub in London, throbbing feet and all when I realized that the vending machines weren’t selling bottled water, but disposable flat shoes—Brilliant, love! They come in little balls that roll out into ballerina-type slippers, cost ₤5 (about $7) and includes another bag to toss your high heels into for the drunken stumble home. Creator Matt Horan says he’s got orders from Ibiza all the way to New York coming in and hopes his idea will take off. So there you go Cinderella, don’t forget your slippers. [Rollasole]

Every year, students from fashion colleges all over the world submit designs for Triumph Inspiration Award, a competition to find “the most inspiring and inspirational lingerie design.” On Monday, the 10 finalists from Japan’s Bunka Fashion College showed off their, um, creative undergarments. My, oh, my! Undies with over-sized frowning lips on the crotch? Knight-armor inspired ensembles? You won’t find these at Victoria’s Secret, but they could make for some great medieval or anime role playing! [Trend De La Creme, Zimbio]

Whenever I see non-alcoholic beer on the menu at a restaurant, I always wonder what kind of crazy, misguided person would order such a thing. Well, I found out recently when I went to a bar with my friend who is preggers. She’s missing the beertastic taste of her fave booze, so she ordered up a non-alcoholic beer and began sipping away. A few minutes later we looked around and realized that people were staring—or rather, glaring—at her. I guess it looked like she was swigging away with little regard for the bun in her oven?
Although these bar-goers had the wrong idea, way more women that you’d think sip the real stuff while they’re pregnant. A recent study shows that 12% of women drink alcohol while they are pregnant. Considering that more than half of non-pregnant women don’t drink at all, this number is high. Pregnant chicks ages 35 to 44 are the worst offenders. Almost 18% of these women drink up. Interestingly, less than 9% of pregnant ladies ages 18 to 24 chose to drink. Keep reading »
Back in the third grade, my best friend Jess and I were obsessed with the movie “Clue.” We watched the video every day after school and knew all three endings backwards and forwards, mostly because we were obsessed with Tim Curry and Michael McKean. Turns out that Jess and I weren’t the only fanatics—the movie is being remade by none other than Gore Verbinski, the CGI genius who turned a corny theme park attraction into the megazillion dollar “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise. Will Colonel Mustard, with a pipe, in the billiard room, be our new Jack Sparrow? Yes please!
We love our “Clue,” but the game is pretty unique: it’s already plot-oriented, it has glam characters (Miss Scarlett! Mr. Plum!), and a creepy mansion setting. But we’re a little dubious about these other board games that are being turned into movies. Seriously—flicks based on Monopoly, Candy Land, Battleship, and Ouija? Keep reading »
