Have You Ever Dumbed Yourself Down For A Man?

His emails are always filled with their/there/they’re mistakes, but you never say anything. A friend asks you both a question about, say, what’s going on in Egypt and you have a strong opinion, but you let your boyfriend respond. Date night involves watching a high-brow French film and you just nod your head politely as he explains the movie’s complicated message, even though you understood it perfectly fine on your own, thank you. You are also capable of assembling a piece of Ikea furniture on your own, but you ask for his help anyway, because it makes him feel manly. These are all examples of what journalist Liz Jones, writing in the Daily Mail U.K., would call Silly Me Syndrome (SMS), which “happens when a woman dumbs herself down so as not to offend the man in her life. It is something we learn to do at a very early age, because women are born smarter than men.” You know, “Oh, silly me. I forgot what nine times seven is again.” Keep reading »

“Rolling Stone” Responds To Justin Bieber/Abortion Controversy

It must have been a slow news day yesterday, because the whole world stopped for Justin Bieber’s thoughts on abortion. While driving around with a “Rolling Stone” reporter in Atlanta, sans handlers, the 16-year-old virgin told writer Vanessa Grigoriadis he believes abortion is “killing a baby” and even in the case of a pregnancy that results from rape, “everything happens for a reason.” Minds were blown. Rome fell. S**t got real.

Well, it turns out that was not Bieber‘s full quote. Keep reading »

Which Names Get Laid The Most?

Beware of guys named Chris, Charles, Dennis, and James. According to a new study from SmartDate.com, dudes with names that end in the letter ‘s’ tend to be “players”—their word, not mine. Guys with these names have more sexual partners in their lifetime than others—while the average guy in the study has slept with 5.2 partners, these guys have had sex with more like 10 or 11. Ditto for Matts and Lukes. Apparently, you’re better off finding an Edward, Dylan, Frank, or Jason—who, according to the survey, have only had a single partner. Unless of course, more experience is what you’re after.

Oh, but they did the same analysis on ladies’ names, too. Keep reading »

The 12 Craziest Examples Of Celeb Lady TMI

Crazy Examples Of Celeb Lady TMI

There was a time not so long ago when famous folk wanted to create the illusion that they were NOT “just like us.” Grace Kelly was never photographed buying jumbo packs of toilet paper! Audrey Hepburn describing where she was the day Aunt Flo first came to visit? HA! Nowadays many female stars, like Jennifer Love Hewitt, are eager to overshare about their private bodily business.

 

If only JLH had taken a cue from Audrey Hepburn (who she once played in TV movie), we wouldn’t have had to endure news of her vajazzling habits for the last two years. At this point, we will never forget that she is responsible for the ridiculous trend, which includes encrusting one’s pubic area with crystals. But we really wish she would stop talking about it already. She’s forever marring her brand. At last week’s Upfronts for “The Client List,” she told red carpet reporters that she was vjazzled for the special occasion: “I’m full of good energy [down there]” she overshared. Ugh. Make it stop. From bikini waxing and colonics to anal bleaching. Here are some other examples of crazy celeb TMI. [Celebitchy]

Kelly Brook Smeared In Red Lipstick

Looking like an outtake from Kanye West’s “Monster” video, here’s British model/actress Kelly Brook smeared in red lipstick for Exhibition magazine. (Full NSFW-ish pics, after the jump!) I hope this lippy isn’t Revlon Colorstay Overtime because girlfriend is not going to be able to wipe that stuff off for another 16 hours. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Skinny Girl, Bethenny Frankel, Admits She Was A Diet And Exercise Addict

“I spent my entire life being obsessed with dieting … Bingeing and then fasting or starving. Forbidding everything. That’s how I used to be: up and down five pounds every single day, to the extremes. My metabolism was totally wrecked … I would go buy magazines just to see what the new diet was and rip it out.”

Bethenny Frankel on overcoming her diet and exercise addiction. I think it’s brave of her to admit this considering her line of work is creating dieting products and books for women. She talks about being sent to an obesity clinic by her mother when she was only eight years old. That stuff stays with you for life. It becomes ingrained so deeply in your unconscious that the thought patterns are difficult to break. I think many women (including myself) will find her story extremely relatable, especially those who were told they were fat or struggled with weight issues as children. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »
