Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Sigh. If only real life romances were more like those in movies and television. If I had it my way, I would have stolen Lloyd Dobler from Diane Court years ago. But alas, they are living happily ever after somewhere in London. She is probably a scientist and he is a stay-at-home dad with a successful kickboxing career. Damn them! In honor of Valentine’s Day, we’ve chosen some of our favorite fictional couples. Why can’t they be real?
A new study found that women are most attracted to the men they know the least. Researchers used Facebook profiles, real and fake, and discovered that the women liked the men best that they knew the least about. We like the guys who play hard to get and, nine times out of 10, lead to no good. Tell us something we don’t know. Like how to make us stop. I would like to take these findings and set fire to them. I’m embarrassed for us. Can we just stop being idiotic masochists when it comes to love already? [Live Science] Keep reading »
What in the name of Billy Corgan?! D’arcy Wretsky, the talented bassist from ’90s alternative band Smashing Pumpkins, was arrested on Tuesday on an outstanding bench warrant. Clearly, it was not the greatest day she’s ever known. The details of her case are pretty boring — it involves some horses getting free from a farm she owns in Michigan or something — but her mugshot is completely epic. D’arcy, what the hell happened?!

I get called a “slut” all the time. My friend Ashley calls me a slut like it’s my name: “Slut!” The Frisky staff calls each other sluts when we divulge our sexual escapades. Internet commenting trolls call me a slut fairly regularly (and a “bitch”, and a c-word, and plenty of other foul things). I call myself a slut, like, say, last week when I hooked up with a dude on the first date. A lot of 20-something women are used to being called a slut in some area of their lives, in every situation from “haha, just kidding” with our friends or (cool) co-workers to more serious areas, like when it’s hurled at us by a catcaller. “Slut” is one of those female-centric words — like “bitch,” like “feminist” — that can mean so many things that it almost means nothing anymore. Except, it turns out, in bed. Keep reading »
As of yesterday, two lovely famous ladies are once again on the market. First, Olivia Wilde separated from her husband, Tao Ruspoli, the son of an Italian prince. Honestly, we didn’t even realize she was married, but apparently the two met when she as 18. He proposed at Burning Man and they got married on a bus. “We were hippies,” she once told Playboy. “We lived on that bus for months.” Sadly, the party is now over. [LA Times]
After the jump, we pick who these two should date next. Keep reading »
Remember that episode of “Sex and the City” where Samantha uses Lucy Liu’s name to get to the top of the list for a crazy-hard-to-get Hermes handbag? Yeah, that was a Birkin. Named for the iconic singer/actress Jane Birkin, the “it” bag will set you back the price of a college education. I’d rather spend that kind of money on, um, college, so the only Birkin I’ll be carrying is this cute Birkin shopping tote from Thursday Friday. And it will only set you back $35! Remember when some dude offers to help as you heave your groceries up the stairs to say, “Be careful! It’s a Birkin!” [Thursday Friday via RockerRepro.Blogspot.com] Keep reading »
