An Open Letter To Jessica Simpson And Other Women Who Can’t Go Three Months Without A Boyfriend

Dear Jessica,

Happy belated birthday! I hope you’ve given some thought to my suggestions in the last letter I wrote to you. It seems perhaps you have since you’ve maintained a healthy weight over the last few months and haven’t yo-yo’d all over the scale. Personally, I think you look great with a little meat on your bones and it’s not your size that I’m writing about now — it’s your love life.

Oh, Jessica. Jessica, Jessica, Jessica. I heard Tony dumped you the night before your birthday and I was just furious for you! What kind of jerk dumps a girl the night before her Ken-and-Barbie birthday?! But then I heard that the impetus may have been some texts Tony found on your phone from your ex, John Mayer. Oh, Jessica! You and I both know a man doesn’t go snooping through your phone or email unless he’s got reason to be suspicious! So what gives? Are you really still hung up on John?

New Housewife Coming To Orange County

Real Housewife replacement checklist: Dyed Blonde hair? Check! Fake boobies? Check! Paralyzed facial muscles? Check! Huge bank account? Double check! That’s right, the producers of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” have cast a new blonde bombshell for the show’s fifth season. Since original cast member Lauri Waring Peterson will not be returning, they needed to find a replica quick. Based on her picture, it seems like they’ve been successful. The newbie is Alexis Bellino and she’s a 32-year-old (yeah, right) socialite. Oh, and she’s on Facebook. That’s all the juicy details I’ve got for now, but don’t you just love how easily replaceable these ladies are? When Mischa left “The O.C.” the show completely collapsed. In Bravo’s reality land, such a travesty could never happen. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Want A Discount At The Brothel? Bike There!

When you think of environmental consciousness, your probably flashes to organic-food eating, composting, solar-energy-loving people. Not whore houses. But a Berlin brothel owner is hoping to make an impact by offering a $7 discount (off the $100 for a 45-minute session) for patrons that arrive on bicycles. Since 2002, Germany has given legit labor contracts to about 400,000 women prostitutes, but business isn’t going so well. Thomas Goetz, the owner of “Maison d’envie” (haha…House of Envy), says, “The recession has hit our industry hard, obviously we hope that the discount will attract more people. It’s good for business, it’s good for the environment and it’s good for the girls. We have around 3-5 new customers coming in daily to take advantage of the discount.” [Reuters] Keep reading »

Would You Wear Yoga Jeans?

I was once in a yoga class where two girls who had never taken a class before didn’t realize they needed special clothes. Watching them attempt a half-pigeon in their jeans was not only painful, but also embarrassing. Now, however, things are different thanks to the invention of yoga jeans, brought to you by Second Clothing. Apparently, the downward dog-friendly pants have been around for a while, but are only just catching on. Keep reading »

Star Couplings: Robert Redford Is Off The Market

  • Robert Redford married Sibylle Szaggars in Germany over the weekend. [Dlisted] — This gives me hope. If he can find love at age 71, I should eventually fall in love again.
  • Vanessa Hudgens says she too busy to think about marrying Zac Efron. [Starpulse] — Yeah, playing a nude hooker is very time consuming.
  • Tony Romo spent what was supposed to be Jessica Simpson’s birthday weekend with the boys. [People] — I feel kind of sorry for Jessica, but maybe she’ll get the ultimate revenge like she did with Nick Lachey.

Work-Life Balance For Women? Pffffft, Says Jack Welch

Business guru and former CEO of General Electric, Jack Welch, recently gave a speech in which he said said women in the working world have to realize that “there’s no such thing as work-life balance.” Instead, we all make “work-life choices” and if women choose to take time off from work for children, there could be “consequences” to that choice. Notably, Welch said, women who stay home with children might be passed over for promotions if we are “not there in the clutch.” In other words, you can’t have your cake and eat it, too.

I actually do agree with some of his points—taking time off to raise kids sets women and their skills back, and people who are present and excelling “in the clutch” deserve promotions and rewards more than people who aren’t. But the problem with work-life balance isn’t exactly the way Welch makes it sound, as if we only have two choices. The problem is that for a really long time, the workplace was set up so moms and dads had to make those choices. Keep reading »

Disgusting PSA Tell British People To Clean Up After Their Dogs

Displayed at UK bus stops, this campaign by the Torbay Council warns dog owners to clean up after their animals. Those who don’t comply will face a hefty fine. Sure, the ad’s message is good but, um, EWWWWWWW! That child appears to be playing in and eating a giant pile of dog poo because, because as the ad claims, “Children will put anything in their mouths.” C’mon guys, give kids some credit. They won’t put that in their mouths. [BBC] Keep reading »
