Dear Dating Mom:

I’ve been using this “wink” feature on this online dating site. Problem is I never hear back from the men I send them to. What am I doing wrong?

What Your Bad Fashion Choices Are Really Saying

Apparently, when I just walked to the deli to pick up a Diet Coke (the only one I’ve had all day, as I am trying to kick the habit), my outfit — which includes striped leggings tucked into Uggs — communicated to my doorman that I’m a trendy and spendy slut who forgot to put on pants.

Rosario Dawson Blasts Looks-Obsessed Hollywood

“My whole job is mostly about feeling like I am discriminated against because I am a woman. It is completely OK to [discriminate] outright and out loud — it is wild, but I deal with it. I feel like being an actress, being told to lose weight and be younger — it’s crazy, but it is part and parcel of the game. To say that looks or age or sex doesn’t matter is ridiculous. But I feel lucky in that every single woman pretty much on the planet has to deal with that sense of how she looks, portrays herself, and this and that. We are scrutinized and compared and all of that kind of stuff. That is kind of what it is to be a woman, unfortunately, still to this day. Even with the coups of feminism we are still there. But at least every other woman is going through that. It’s not something extra special that I have to go through. It is just part of my job.”

— “Unstoppable” actress Rosario Dawson on Hollywood holding women like her under a microscope. While it’s true that it’s an image-conscious business for all actors and actresses, it’s no secret that the pressure is especially intense for women. [Daily Telegraph] Keep reading »

Charlie Sheen is the bender king. We were just starting to forget about his last incident where he was found naked, intoxicated, and ranting with a pile of coke and a prostitute back in October and now he’s at it again. While at an adult film convention in Vegas last week, Chuck holed up at the Palms Hotel and allegedly had a vodka-fueled foursome with some porn stars. Make it stop, please. Send him to jail or rehab. After the jump, some more impressively destructive celebrity benders. [Celebitchy]
