Are Men And Women Switching Roles In Relationships?

It may be time for us to stop complaining about how men are such commit-o-phobes and women are all gunning to get hitched and make babies. A new Match.com survey of more than 5,000 people, ages 21 to 65, of all races, sexual orientations, and socio-economic levels, found that more men are looking for attachment and commitment than their gender stereotypes would lead us to believe. Men reported experiencing love at first sight and wanting kids more often than their female counterparts. So, what do the women want while the men are catching up on their rom-coms? We want our independence, dammit! Women value good jobs, separate bank accounts, and girls-only vacays more than ever before. And motherhood? About half of the women surveyed did not believe that women should be primary caregivers for kids. In short, women are becoming more like men. Gender stereotypes be damned.

Frisky Q&A: Taylor Momsen Is Not At All Who You Think She Is

Every now and then, you realize that you’ve been sold a bill of goods that just isn’t true. This is exactly what happened when I sat down to interview Taylor Momsen, who plays Jenny Humphrey on “Gossip Girl” and fronts the band, The Pretty Reckless, whose first full-length album, Light Me Up, comes out tomorrow. I was expecting a girl who constantly drops f-bombs, who can’t stop talking about porn, and who flashes her audiences even though she’s underage. I mean, she supposedly set her dog’s balls on fire! (Sadly, we got cut off before I could ask her if there was any truth to this rumor.)

But instead, the woman on the other side of the line was … totally sweet. And funny. And charming. Heck, she even signed off by telling me to be careful not to slip on the icy New York City sidewalks. There was hardly a hint of teenage rebellion in our entire conversation.

After the jump, Taylor talks about her new album, “Gossip Girl,” and her affinity for thigh-highs. Prepare to start adoring her. Keep reading »

James Franco To Play The Wizard. You Know, The Wizard Of Oz.

I have a theory that James Franco must have found a genie in a bottle at some point during his life, and wished to have 48 hours in a single day while the rest of us only get 24. Not only is the dude gearing up to host the Oscars, working on a zillion graduate degrees, directing movie versions of William Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying and Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian, starring in a Linda Lovelace biopic and heading to Broadway—but as of this morning, he has also been tapped to play the Wizard in “Oz, The Great and Powerful.” The film is a “Wizard of Oz” prequel that tells the story of how the dude ended up in a hot air balloon to Oz, later standing behind a curtain in the Emerald City. Apparently, he was a con man who had the hots for Glinda, the good witch. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: And I Thought My Addictions Were Strange…

Thanks to the new TV show, “My Strange Addiction,” I have nothing to feel ashamed about. The TLC series, which offers rubbernecking shock value, made my own struggles with addiction seem more commonplace. Keep reading »

Dr. Phil Tells Mom To Not Let Son Play With Barbies

Dr. Phil doesn’t want your son to be “confused” — especially if “confused” means “gay.” Not that one of America’s most prominent psychological experts (thanks a lot, Oprah) comes right out and says being gay is bad. The gay and lesbian blog Queerty points us to DrPhil.com, where he kindly suggests a mother “direct” her son away from the clothes and toys “for girls” to which he is gravitating. “Don’t buy him Barbie dolls or girl’s clothes,” he writes. “You don’t want to do things that seem to support the confusion at this stage of the game …Take the girl things away, and buy him boy toys.” Keep reading »
