Girl Talk: Dating With A Disability

Would a guy date a woman with a disability?

That’s not the sort of question guys are expecting to hear amidst the typical flurry of getting-to-know-you questions. But it’s nonetheless an important – even critical – one for me. It’s at the top of my list, actually. It’s a question I’ve been asking myself since high school when my peers so easily began to couple-off, and I watched from the sidelines. It all seemed so natural and effortless for them, yet I couldn’t help but feel as though the Dating Gods had forgotten to “cc” me on their Dating 101 memo. I’m sure the memo talked about the basics: courting, flirting, maybe even some tips for hiding those tiny flaws and insecurities on the first date.

But what about those not-so-tiny flaws? What about those insecurities you can’t simply hide with a cute jacket or a thick layer of Maybelline foundation? Keep reading »

Girl Scouts Host First Ever Duct Tape Fashion Show

As a born and bred New Yorker, I never had the inclination to join the Girl Scouts and learn the necessary wilderness skills to survive the jungle otherwise known as Central Park. Just because I can’t figure out how to start a fire by rubbing rocks together and lack the super cute uniform does not mean I can’t appreciate Girl Scout Cookies. My addiction to thin mints is a real problem. If the cookies didn’t already earn my undying devotion for the Girl Scouts, then their first ever duct tape fashion show did. More info, after the jump… Keep reading »

Does This Wrangler Ad Scream “Raw Sex” To You?

This Wrangler jeans ad, called “We Are Animals,” just won the top prize at the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival. The woman advertising the jeans looks like a deer in headlights. A topless deer in headlights with a big booty.

A U.S. judge at the festival said the campaign “screams raw sex.” I don’t know…it just screams “Get out of the road!” to me. [Guardian UK] Keep reading »

Jon & Kate Plus A Mistress?

Deanna Hummel, the 23-year-old teacher that Jon Gosselin supposedly cheated on his soon-to-be ex wife with may appear on the show when it returns on August 3. We don’t know what sort of role Deanna will have yet, but she’s probably going to be filmed since she may be a part of Jon’s life now. I think TLC is doing this to boost ratings—but they’re really going to eff up the kids in the process. Maybe they should just rename this show “Jon & Kate Plus A Butcher Knife Minus One?” [LA Times] Keep reading »

Hell Yeah, Models Diet!

Newsflash! The New York Times interviewed the next hottest male model—a half-Arab dude from Kentucky named A. J. Abualrub, who was “discovered” by Ford Models last year—about his eating habits. He just landed himself an exclusive contract with Calvin Klein and is walking in all the top designer shows in Milan at the moment. That’s him, above, looking a wee bit hungry. You’d think he’s just blab about the usual, how he’s “naturally skinny,” how he was a total “beanpole” growing up, how he can “eat anything he wants,” but nope, he went with the real, live truth! Abualrub admitted that his normal weight is somewhere around 200 pounds and to drop the runway “necessary” 30 pounds, he’s been only eating “like, maybe twice a day” and it’s been a “challenge to take off the weight.” Refreshing! A model that actually cops to the fact that being that skinny isn’t always about genetics. [NY Times] Keep reading »

Dating Don’ts: The Worst Breakup Lines Ever

Nowhere is the difference between men and women so glaring as when it comes down to the demise of a relationship. Specifically, the unexpected, unwanted, one-sided break-up otherwise known as the dumping.

A dumped dude might get angry. Then again, he might just get depressed and mope quietly in his room. He may go to a strip club or pick up a one-night-stand at a bar. What he won’t do is call up all his buddies and poll them about what they think his ex really meant when she quit returning his calls. Nor will he tearfully declare that said ex must have been either too intimidated by his devastating intellect and/or simply too in love with him.

Sparks Fly Between Shia LaBeouf And Fan?

Shia LaBeouf was on “The Today Show” this morning promoting the “Transformers” sequel and when Meredith Viera trotted out a female fan who was dying to meet him, Shia showed his sweet side. In fact, I might have even seen sparks fly! The best part was when Samantha told Shia she had bought her floral printed skirt just for the occasion, then asked him what kind of girl he likes. His response seemed genuine. “All kinds,” he replied. “What are you doing the rest of the day? My day is boring.” Clip above! Keep reading »
