My Friends Hate My Boyfriend!

“Sex and the City” illustrated many prominent issues that women sometimes encounter in their relationships: fertility struggles, unease about out-earning a boyfriend, being attracted to “toxic bachelors,” and wanting to pursue “sex like a man,” among others. While not every woman desires the unattached sex that Samantha pursues, “Sex and the City,” and in particular, “Sex and the City: The Movie” shined light on a phenomenon that nearly every woman deals with at one point or another: clashing with a friend’s love interest. On “Sex and the City,” Mr. Big continually treats Carrie like crap: never wanting to commit, marrying another woman yet expecting Carrie to happily continue as “the other woman,” and (spoiler alert!) eventually leaving Carrie at the altar at the Bradshaw-Preston wedding. But Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda are always there to clean up the mess Big made. Needless to say, the girlfriends develop a major grudge. Charlotte even confesses that she practiced what she would say if she bumped into Mr. Big on the street: “I curse the day you were born!” Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Scarlett Johansson Lives Life When She’s Transient

“Both of us were in a transient place. I’ve been working since I was 8 years old, and whenever I have periods of time when I don’t have to be doing anything, where I don’t have any responsibility, it’s in those moments that I live my life. I felt, as the word transient would suggest, in between two places. In between a beginning and an end. And I think Pete also had that feeling of being in between, of being everywhere and nowhere at once.”

— Scarlett Johansson on how she and Pete Yorn came to collaborate on the album “Break Up.” With all this talk about living life most fully when she’s feeling transient, Scarlett sounds a lot like her character, Charlotte, in the 2003 movie, “Lost in Translation.” [via NY Mag] Keep reading »

Shortsgate: Michelle Obama Dares To Bare Her Legs!

Oh holy hell. First Lady Michelle Obama has caught some flack for daring to wear shorts while on vacation with her family at the Grand Canyon in 100+ degree heat. (Emphasis all mine because I cannot fathom the absurdity.) This morning on “The Today Show,” The Washington Post‘s Robin Givhan and Mary Tomer, author of the upcoming book Mrs. O: The Face Of Fashion Democracy, discussed the brouhaha over Mrs. O wearing above-the-knee (GASP!) shorts. Apparently, some see this as her, I dunno, giving the middle finger to propriety and tradition since the look is so casual. The whole thing made me mega-stabby, especially since Lauer can’t help but acknowledge how ridiculous it is that they are even discussing the topic. If Obama had been wearing, say, a khaki skirt, would people have cared to comment? If the shorts had been below the knee, would that have been OK, or would the chatter then be about her looking frumpy? Also, isn’t there, like, a health-care debate going on? Keep reading »

Britney Does Letterman

Everyone’s favorite reformed (?) psycho-in-a-blond-weave, Britney Spears, made an appearance on “Letterman” last night, reading the Top Ten list which, appropriately enough, was titled “Top Ten Ways The Country Would Be Different If Britney Spears Were President.” Wearing a string bikini — and an enormous tropical flower behind one ear — and looking more toned and in-shape than she has in years, Brit-Brit sat atop a Presidential-looking desk and shifted her weight from hip to hip as she read each number. The appearance was certainly less disastrous than past televised appearances (the infamous MTV Music Video Awards, anyone?), but I couldn’t help but think her “charisma” seemed a little canned. What do you think? Keep reading »

Check Out These Pretty Fire Extinguishers

In case of a fire, you might be thinking about: your safety, your property or how beautiful your fire extinguisher is. If you fall into the latter thought pattern, then feast your eyes on these Fire Design fire extinguishers. (We agree — the name could have been a touch more innovative.) They’re available in bright, pop-y colors like pink, yellow and green, fun prints or custom designs. Of course, leave it to the French to come up with something this functional and fashionable. If you can actually read Français, then brave their website to purchase yours. A custom extinguisher will set you back abut $133, a, erm, cool price for a hot item? [Chic Report]

Dudes: Please Stop Waxing Your Chests!

When did guys start waxing their chests? All I have to say about that is: It’s got to stop. If we wanted you to look like us, we’d date us. We want guys to look like guys, no matter how hirsute that makes you. That’s why we love you. Because you are what we are not. True story: I think the first time I saw some guy’s chest hair waxed into a distinct shape was about seven years ago. I was on the set of an adult movie. The guy was Ron Jeremy. And his chest hair had been waxed into the shape of … a heart. It was both totally horrifying and vaguely endearing. Keep reading »

A Toothy Necklace For A Whiter Smile

This advertisement is supposed to have us believe that if you chew HappyDent baking soda gum, your teeth will become whiter, brighter, and, oh, so much better. How does the company choose to convey this message? Frankly, I don’t know that selling us ladies on this product by way of a necklace made of human teeth — no matter how white they may be — is what’s going to make us rush out and buy their tooth-whitening gum. It’s rather creepy, isn’t it? Although, I do appreciate that it’s not telling us to lose our blubber, like PETA. But there’s just something cannibalistic about this advertisement. After the jump, check out a toothy closeup. [Copyranter] Keep reading »
