While “Hitched or Ditched” is quite possibly the most terrible show on television, I have found myself watching it on more than one occasion. The show gives a couple who seem to be ready for marriage but are avoiding it the chance to have their dream ceremony. Over a period of four days, they have to decide whether they should indeed get married, or split up for good. Of course, drama ensues, exes are brought back to life, and in-laws do embarrassing things. Keep reading »
Is it possible to c**k block safe sex? Yes, say public health advocates who are going after CVS for sometimes locking its condoms behind glass cases!
Advocates For Youth and CureCVS are rallying people based on the findings of a Change To Win study, which investigated CVS branches in five major metropolitan areas. They found condom lockage is three times more likely to occur in areas where minorities live—which obviously is discriminatory and needs to stop immediately. Keep reading »
I can’t possibly force myself to sit through another episode of “The Fashion Show.” I cannot take another hour of Kelly Rowland contorting her face into bizarre sneers. If I hear Isaac Mizrahi say “bye bye, darling,” one more time, I will snap. Because I value my sanity, or whatever is left of it since the show began, I am not going to watch “The Fashion Show”. I confess, I say this every week and then cave, but this week is going to be different. Last week I had the foresight to ask some friends to watch the show with me. After only five minutes, my friend staged an intervention and turned the show off. Good. So how will I spend my Thursday nights now? Instead of wallowing in my grief over the lack of Tim Gunn in my life, at 10:00pm tonight I am going to play”The Project Runway Game.” Keep reading »
The secret’s out: cougars want to claw “American Idol” runner-up Adam Lambert, says blogger and self-proclaimed Lambert-lover Joan Raymond at Newsweek.com. According to her, confident women over the age of 40 are obsessed with the 27-year-old newly-outed singer. Overall, her reasons make sense, but the thing is, nothing she says explains why older women would react differently than, say, any teenybopper or “Idol” obsessed fan. Keep reading »
Watch out (or celebrate), Iran, Zahra Rahnavard may be your next Hillary Clinton. She’s an artist, a politician, and also the fire behind husband Mir-Hossein Mousavi’s presidential campaign. From what I’ve seen, it appears she might even have more followers than he does — crowds of women (and men) roar when she shows up to an event.

TV Land is normally my haven for “The Cosby Show” and “Roseanne” reruns. But lately, the network’s branched out into original shows, like “The Cougar,” basically a “Bachelorette” rip-off where the lady doing the picking is 40 and the guys are all in their 20s. Tonight at 9pm is the season premiere of “She’s Got The Look,” the show that looks to “discover the next supermodel over the age of 35.” And I’ve got some pretty mixed feelings about it.

Wall-to-wall, ceiling-to-floor wallpaper is too big of a commitment for us. And we’d rather be out and about on our weekends, not elbow-deep in wallpaper paste. But we’d still like something on our walls that’s more exciting than plain paint. This wall graphic is removable, so we don’t have to make a huge commitment. And it applies easily, so we’ll still get fresh air on the weekend. Now we’ve got another problem, though…trying to decide on a color. [$75, SupermarketHQ] Keep reading »
Boyfriend into Japanese cartoons? Then he’ll love you in these extra-wide contact lenses from GEO Lens. The lenses sounded innocuous enough at first, but after two seconds of moderate internet investigation, I learned that the lenses primary function are to give your eyes the appearance of an anime character. WTF? The lenses are not only tinted unnatural colors, but are heavily tinted beyond the normal rim of your eye, into the the shape of anime-eyes. So all you have to do is pop a pair into your peepers and you are good to go do…well, whatever it is that anime characters do. Now if dating a guy with an anime fetish is questionable, making yourself look like an anime character is unquestionably bizarre. I shouldn’t judge — whatever you do in the privacy of your own home is your business. I will try not to pass judgment if looking like an anime character keeps things steamy in the bedroom. To each her own. I will, however, stare and/or laugh if I see you walking on the street with cartoon eyes.
Oh, FYI, you can only get a prescription from your doc, who might send you to a shrink instead. Keep reading »
