Two months ago, I packed up my life into all the suitcases and storage boxes I could find. My kitchen supplies went in storage. A Reiss cocktail dress I’d bought to wear for my own engagement party at some unforeseen date went to my sister’s. My books are still piles up in my parents’ living room. I left baby photos of Ex-Mr. Jessica, given to me by his grandma back when he referred to me as “the one,” behind in our old bedroom along with my housekey.
Moving out of the apartment I shared with my ex-boyfriend was worse than the breakup. He made the breakup easy on me, in a way, by treating me badly. I felt hurt about being dumped, of course, but mostly I felt angry: I didn’t deserve to be dumped so suddenly, to have another woman waiting in the wings, to basically have been kicked out of my home, and to have my possessions threatened. I still feel blood-pumping anger about all that. Moving out felt so final and being forced to do it against my will totally sucked.
I’ve spent a lot of time on my own these past two months. I’ve done a lot of thinking and hurting and growing. I feel ready — or mostly ready — to leave my parents’ house in Connecticut where I’ve been staying and move back out on my own again. A single woman. A city girl again. Sigh. It turns out moving out on my own again is hard, too. Keep reading »

After four years together—through breakup rumors and whispers of Justin flirting with, oh, everyone—Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake have called it quits. Reps for the couple released a statement saying, “They mutually have decided to part ways. The two remain friends and continue to hold the highest level of love and respect for each other.” Right, because famous people are always so happy after a breakup. [People]
So, who should these two date now? Our picks after the jump. Keep reading »
I’m loving this “I Have Sex” video by a bunch of Wesleyan students. Last month the House of Representatives, led by a lovely bunch of social conservatives hellbent on ruining access to safe, legal abortions any way possible, voted to de-fund Planned Parenthood. This is crazytalk to anyone who’s ever gone to Planned Parenthood for the Pill or a Pap smear or to get a strange lump in your breast checked out. Sexual health is not something anyone should have to gamble with. Attention, conservatives: people have sex! [YouTube] Keep reading »
Back in January, Bristol Palin revealed that she had a new boyfriend. “He’s awesome with Tripp and we’ve been really good friends for a long time, and he’s just a really good guy,” she said. “He’s a family guy. He’s a Christian. We have all the same religious beliefs and our families both come first in our lives, and we just have a lot in common… He loves Tripp and he’s just awesome to be around.”
Now finally, we get her new dude’s name so we can compare him to Levi Johnston see if he’s good enough for our Bristol. But so far, we’re not sold. Keep reading »
