Last night, I watched all 120 minutes of “The Bachelor,” rather than just fast-forwarding through the repetitive parts, so I could find out first hand who would be appearing on season 12 of “Dancing with the Stars.” And I gotta say, I am a little underwhelmed with the lineup. The guys who will lacing up their dancing shoes: Sugar Ray Leonard, the originl “Karate Kid,” Ralph Macchio, wrestler Chris Jericho, rapper Romeo, wide receiver Hines Ward, and “Loveline” co-host (aka Adam Corolla replacement) Mike Catherwood. For the women, we’ve got: Kirstie Alley, Wendy Williams, Kendra Wilkinson, Disney star Chelsea Kane, and former model Petra Nemcova. Notice how many of the folks require descriptors. Mike Catherwood and Chelsea Kane, here’s looking at you. Keep reading »
It’s been three years since I’ve uttered the phrase, “This is my boyfriend, __________.” So every time I’ve said it in the past two weeks, as the word ‘boyfriend’ passed through my lips, it felt both totally foreign and completely natural. Even though it’s a word that conjures up images of high school and “Do you like me? Check yes or no” letters, each time I say it, the word makes me feel just a little bit giddy.
I’ve been dating The Young One for six blissful weeks. Keep reading »
Cheese puff celebs like Justin Bieber introduce their own nail polish lines. But Butter London has named their own limited edition nail polish for Kate Middleton, a shimmery purple called No More Waity Katie (her nickname in the press). Supposedly, No More Waity Katie is greige — grey and beige — but that color sure looks like purple to me! I’d like to get my fingers on this polish — and this polish on my fingers — but, hey, Butter, don’t you think $14 is a bit stiff? Not all of us are marrying into royalty, you know.

Men beware. A new study says that guys should steer clear of dating a woman who is hotter than he is because the relationship has greater odds of being doomed. Why? Well, because a more beautiful woman has all the power in the relationship. If she wants to leave your ugly ass she will, whereas a woman of equal or lesser attractiveness will make due with you (presumably even if you are annoying). But the same does not apply to for a woman dating a hotter man. No issues there according to researchers. Come on! Is this study for real? It is in some alternative universe where gorgeous women don’t marry men for their money or where underwear models like to date average chicks like me. I’d be happy to live in that world. But until then, I’ll keep living in the world where people sometimes enter into relationships because they are compatible, regardless of which partner is prettier. [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
Part of my pre-spring ritual is buying a new pair of open-toed shoes for my cloistered feet and picking out my nail polish palette for my weekly pedis. I choose a few colors and alternate between them throughout the season. It helps me imagine what my feet will look like while frolicking barefoot in the park or riding bikes. Escapism at its finest. Click through to see the shades I’ve picked for spring. What are your colors this season?
You won’t see 11-year-old Supatra Sasuphan running to the razor section of her local drugstore or off to join the circus. Supatra, who suffers from Hypertrichosis, is hirsute and proud. She was just named the world’s hairiest girl in the Guinness Book of World Records. After a lifetime of being called “monkey-face” by her peers, she is “happy” to have taken the title. That’s right! Screw those kids! Her plans for the future? To become a doctor to help people. I want to give her a huge hug and make all of her dreams to come true. [The Gloss] Keep reading »
