Is Chris Brown Ready For Oprah?

With Chris Brown finally offering a public apology for letting his temper get the best of him and striking ex-girlfriend Rihanna, what’s the next stop on his “I’m Sorry” tour? Could it be a seat on Oprah Winfrey’s couch? That’s the word. It’s rumored that Chris Brown’s camp is in negotiations with The Oprah Winfrey Show about making an appearance on the Goddess of the Universe’s talk show. Only there’s one catch: Breezy doesn’t want to talk about the specifics of what happened between he and Rihanna the night he reportedly beat her. However, it seems Oprah’s people have popped back and made it clear that they don’t want anything on the table. With respect to all of you teeny boppers who throw your training bras at Chris in concert, it doesn’t compare to the power of Oprah’s legion of fans. If Chris wants to go back to pop locking for Doublemint gum, I’d sit on the couch, cry and let Oprah verbally spank me. Continue reading Keep reading »

Red Bull Backlash: “Slow Cow” Beverage

Slow Cow may look like one of those Red Bull-type energy drinks that line the shelves of America’s convenience stores, but it’s the exact opposite. The Canadian beverage claims to slow your roll via the a main ingredient, L-Theanine, an amino acid that relaxes, but doesn’t induce sleepiness. Slow Cow also claims that this miracle element reduces anxiety, clears your mind, and can even help symptoms of PMS. Americans, however, are so accustomed to the go, go, go of coffee culture that it’s difficult to imagine a trend of “mellow drinks.” After all, we can think of some, ahem, other things that do that for you.

Eight Famous Women That Love Short Men

It takes a self-confident woman—and equally secure man—to overcome major height differences in a relationship, especially when it comes to the tall lady, small guy type of scenario. Personally, I can’t seem to get into being taller than a boyfriend or husband. I know, call me close minded, but there’s something about looking up to a dude that’s appealing and, in some ways, comforting. Sophie Dahl, of new cooking show fame, feels exactly the opposite—she’s been dating singer Jamie Cullum for about two years. Both madly in love, they clearly don’t see height as a factor in their relationship (she’s reportedly 5’11″ and he’s 5’4″).

Hot Outta The Oven: Summer Gazpacho With Roasted Corn

Think you can’t cook? Here’s a recipe where you don’t have to. (And technically, it’s not quite “Hot Outta The Oven,” but anyway…) Gazpacho is a cold summer tomato soup, and all you have to do is blend, baby blend. The best part is that it’s super healthy, being low in fat (there’s a teeny bit of olive oil, the “good fat”), and high in nutrients (lycopene from tomato). Once you get the basic idea down, you can think of your own twists to add. I made up this recipe, and added roasted corn to give it a bit of a crunch. Keep reading »

Why Do Famous People Give Birth To So Many Twins?

Last night in Switzerland, Roger Federer, the #1 tennis player in the world, became the proud father of not one, but two babies. His twins Myla Rose and Charlene Riva are another pair to add to the list of celebrity twins. It almost seems like an epidemic at this point. Celebrity gets pregnant, celebrity pops out twice the babies. Is it because celebs don’t naturally procreate and often opt to use in-vitro? Is it because celebs are just so gorgeous the world could use more of their good genes? Is it because in general the whole world is birthing more twins? Who knows!? Here’s a list of celebrities who have become parents to twin babies in the last few years. Keep reading »

Cool “Eye Cues” Technique Enhances Communication Skills

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you knew how the person you are talking to is processing your conversation?

NLP eye accessing cues can provide an enormous amount of insight into someone’s preferred method of processing information. NLP (Neuro-Lingustic Programming) was developed by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in the 1970′s and is modeled on the gestalt therapies by Fritz Perls, Virginia Satir and Milton Erickson. Though NLP is a controversial form of psychological therapy, it incorporates some interesting techniques that can assist in more effective methods of communication. Many of the techniques encourage becoming aware of various postures, behaviors, and physical cues that clue one into a person’s internal mental process.

West Bengal Village Weds Frog Couple

Frogs get a bad rep for that whole stealing-kisses-from-princesses thing, but in a West Bengal village called Madhya Baragari, Indian farmers are depending on the little green guys to bring rain. It’s monsoon season, but the rain just isn’t coming and instead the town has a drought. Their solution? Marrying two frogs, named after Ram and Sita, a mythological couple from the ancient Sanskrit epic, the Ramayana. The frogs get vermilion paint on their little heads and are held in the air in front of a traditional clay candle and married in front of the all the villagers. The local women fast before the event and then invite the river to give its blessing and join the wedding party. A local head councilman says, “We feted about 3,000 villagers and solemnized the marriage with every single ritual.” [Yahoo! News]

I wonder if the frogs have to get divorced if there’s a flood? I used to think I could make it rain before soccer practice by throwing ice cubes into the sky, but it was relatively ineffective, so I hope this method works better. Keep reading »
