Crave: Bath & Body Works Jelly Flip-Flops

While most are annoyed about the jelly shoe comeback, we have to admit we’re kind of thrilled. Jellies are pretty, comfy, the coolest texture, and are wearable in the sun, in the rain, on the beach, and pretty much everywhere else. Plus, the word “Jelly” is just so fun to say. These jelly (see, it just rolls right off the tongue!) sandals are only four bucks, and just looking at them puts a smile on our faces. Four bucks for a smile and some cute footwear? We’ll take that any day! [$4, Bath & Body Works] Keep reading »

Is Anderson Cooper Coming Out Tonight?

Unvogue Magazine apparently exists and says that Anderson Cooper is totally going to show up at their Men’s Issue release party at Manhattan’s Sapphire Go-Go Lounge tonight, which they’ve playfully been referring to as “Anderson Cooper’s Big Fat Coming Out Party.” Though Anderson turned down an opportunity to host the event, he allegedly confirmed he will be attending and the Unvogue staff has been planning wine spritzers (really?) and are coordinating a lap dance called “A.C. 360″ for the occasion.

Sao Paulo Fashion Week’s Hottest Male Models, Just Because

haute10 m jpg
Some girls have all the luck — and just this once, I was one of them. I just returned from Sao Paulo Fashion Week in Brazil where I got a chance to check out dozens of the country’s most amazing brands from international stars Alexandre Herchcovitch to local — and very campy — heroes like Dudu Bertholini, co-designer of Neon. As wonderful as the haute couture was, it didn’t hold a candle to the hot boys who modeled them. Some were blonds, others brunettes, others red heads — and all sexy. There really were too many to choose from, but I made the Herculean effort required to narrow it down to my top ten. Enjoy this stimulating visual display!

Cheating: Is The Cover Up Worse Than The Crime?

Along with the rest of America, I’m rubbernecking at South Carolinian Gov. Mark Sanford’s affair with an Argentinian lass, Maria Belen Chapur (and I’m quietly cheering for Sanford’s wife, Jenny, for leaving him).

Cheating doesn’t speak well for a conservative Republican politician who preached “family values.” Sanford’s hypocrisy alone is gross. But married politicians dropping their drawers for women who aren’t their wives isn’t as interesting to me as the fact that Gov. Sanford told everyone he would be hiking on the Appalachian Trail when he was actually south of the border with his mistress.

Is It Necessary To Always Tell Partners About Your STD?

I was having dinner with some friends the other night, one of whom does HIV research. We started talking about STDs in general when another friend admitted she’s had herpes for about 10 years. She said she contracted it from the second guy she ever slept with and though she hasn’t had an outbreak in about 8 years, she always tells potential sex partners about it. I was surprised when she said that her gynecologist said that as long as she isn’t in the middle of an outbreak, there’s really no need to tell a sex partner — then I remembered this letter to advice columnist Jamie Bufalino in last week’s Time Out New York. A young woman writes:

“I’m a 23-year-old female, and just found out yesterday that I have contracted HPV/genital warts. I called the four people I’ve slept with in the past year to inform them, saving my current beau (he’s 28, BTW) for last. When I got on the phone with him (he lives in Boston, I’m in New York), I hardly had to say anything because he quickly responded: “Oh yeah, I have HPV too.” We’ve been dating for four months and he never bothered to mention that his last two girlfriends both magically contracted this virus after being with him. He apologized, said he felt terrible that he never told me, that he had planned to tell me soon, asked what he could do to make up for it, etc. I told him I never wanted to speak to him again. Now, the morning after, I wonder: Is getting an STD just part of being an adult? Or is passing a virus a deal breaker?”

Why Are Guy Friends So Trendy?

Girlfriends are getting a lot of flack these days. Despite the popularity of “Sex and the City,” “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,” and “Lipstick Jungle” (well, maybe that one wasn’t so popular), female friendship is under attack. In the past few years it has become trendy to poo-poo girlfriends and hang with a posse of guys. Considering the legacy of girlfriendship in history and literature, I am surprised to find contemporary women viewing them with such disdain. I grew up reading about the bonds between sisters in “Little Women” and “Pride and Prejudice” and the unbreakable ties of friendship in “The Babysitters Club.” During grade school the notion of even being polite to a guy was incomprehensible; boys did have cooties, after all. As I grew, so did the possibility that a guy might make a decent friend. I think it must have been some time during high school, but suddenly every girl was touting that she didn’t hang out with girls, she preferred to have guy friends instead. Keep reading »
