I always thought that the holidays were when couples are most likely to break up, but Hollywood did its best this year to prove that theory wrong. I’ve seriously lost track of how many celebrity couples got engaged over the holiday weekend — Natalie and that hot guy! Reese and that agent! LeAnn and that guy who used to be on a soap opera! The only breakup announced this week was Rihanna and Matt Kemp, and who ever cared about them anyway? Seriously, 2010 was a big year for celebrity couples, with countless engagements, weddings, and surprising pairings. Here’s who we found adorable and annoying and think are meant to be or are destined to fail. Keep reading »
We can pretty much guarantee that this dog really, really regrets the decision to stick his head through a concrete hole. No one’s quite sure what motivated the German Shepard, but, thankfully, animal services were able to get the dog out of the tight hole. [Splash News] Keep reading »
With TBS playing “A Christmas Story” for 24 hours straight last week, you no doubt watched the classic ’80s flick at least once. And you probably thought to yourself the same question we did: I wonder where Ralphie is now? Well, The New York Daily News has done the legwork for us on that one. The bluest eyed kid on the planet—whose real name is Peter Billingsley—isn’t acting so much anymore, though he does do the occasional bit part. But he’s still in Hollywood—he’s a producer whose credits include “Iron Man,” “The Break Up,” “Made” and “Four Christmases.” (I’m guessing he’s buds with Vince Vaughn?) He also directed “Couples Retreat.” And is a super hottie. We’re glad you didn’t shoot your eye out, Ralphie. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
Men. Who can understand them? Not me. The thing about men I understand the least is how they fight. I literally feel like I’m speaking another language when I’m arguing with my dude. Are we talking about the same thing? Did we have the same conversation? Wait, are we even on the same planet? That’s when I feel like that “men are from Mars” and “women are from Venus” BS might have some truth to it.
Things we don’t understand about how men argue — and sweeping gender generalizations! — after the jump … Keep reading »
Plain cotton socks just don’t cut it in the winter; once they get wet, either from sweat or snow, they stay wet. And wet feet lead to cold feet. Wool socks, however, still provide insulation even when wet, guarding against hypothermia. But since we like our clothing to be as fabulous as it is functional, we’re dying for these angora over-the-knee socks that have a touch of lurex. We like the idea of layering them over tights, slouching them below cropped cords, and letting them peek out from our knee-high boots.
