Finally, the day we’ve all been waiting for is here! Papa Bach will give out his final rose tonight and, if the rumor we’ve heard are true, he promptly take it back on the “After The Final Rose” special and give it to the woman he rejected. Now that’s gonna be entertainment! But until then, both Melissa and Molly have a 50/50 chance of winning Jason Mesnick’s heart, and a 100% chance of boring us to tears. In the meantime, as we await the three hour extravaganza (and I’ll be liveblogging it, per usual, pity me), here’s a Face Off between Bubbly Bitch #1 and Bubbly Bitch #2…. Keep reading »
“Only In A Woman’s World” is a collection of webisodes presented by the makers of Baked! Lays, Flatearth, and Smartfoods snacks, in which four girlfriends share their trials and tribulations while snacking healthily. Each webisode centers around some rom-com cliche, like the out-of-shape mom going bathing suit shopping or the young woman whose world ends because her stylist is switching salons. But yummy, nutritious snacks save the day! “Only in a Woman’s World” really isn’t a bad idea, especially as a advertising ploy. I actually enjoyed reading a little background on each of the characters, their occupations, embarrassing moments, etc. But I would have found the webisodes more entertaining if they weren’t so trite and stereotypical. Am I asking too much from something that is basically an extended commercial? Were you entertained by the “Only in a Woman’s World”? Let us know in the comments. Keep reading »
Blue nails aren’t really new — everyone from Lindsay Lohan to Camilla Belle has painted their nails some variation of the color in the last year — but it seems like new shades of blue are coming out by the dozen. A bunch of nail polish companies are releasing blue polishes for spring, and China Glaze even has an entire six-color line called Bahama Blues. Do you think the color is just a passing fad, or is it picking up enough steam to overtake purple in the nail polish color wars?

In this economy, while men are worried about losing their jobs, they’re looking for something to hold onto. And that something is a big ol’ booty! Finally, this gray economic cloud officially has its silver lining, thanks to a recent study conducted at New York University. Their findings confirmed that when times are lean, men tend to describe their ideal mate as extra fatty! Keep reading »
An increasing number of women are trying to sell their eggs to earn cash during the financial crisis. An attractive, well-educated, healthy, twentysomething woman can get as much as $10,000 for donating her eggs, but is the money worth the headache and time it takes to be accepted as a donor?

A lot of times, it seems like women deal with stress by talking about their problems, while men shut down and keep quiet about what’s troubling them. In the police force, the opposite is kind of true. Don Kurtz, an assistant professor of social work at Kansas State University, studied gender differences in stress and burnout and found that men de-stress by exchanging war stories with one another. Women, on the other hand, don’t feel like they can take part in this. See, the men aren’t talking about their emotions — they’re largely exaggerating these stressful events and replacing feelings of fear with superhuman qualities. The women, who like to keep it real, don’t often participate, because they think they would be called out by colleagues if they told bullshit stories, like the men do.
Interestingly enough, women are often given the cases that men find the most stressful — usually those dealing with the deal or physical/sexual assault of a child. Too bad it’s not because their superiors think they’d be better qualified for this type of assignment. No, it’s because it’s often seen as lower police work. [Medical News Today] Keep reading »
Poor Meghan McCain. It’s hard dating when you’re the daughter of a former Presidential candidate. Especially when he lost. But I’m not just emoting here — Meghan has expressed these sentiments in a new blog post over at The Daily Beast. In her column, “Looking For Mr. Far Right,” she writes that dating for her is a Catch-22 because she finds that she’s not only not attracted to Obama supporters (for obvious reasons), but hardcore supporters of her father too. After all, how’s she to know that the guy is into her for her and not because her dad is a failed presidential candidate? Keep reading »
