Bravo’s “Real Housewives” series has traveled across the Hudson to the Garden State for its latest installment, and New Jersey was made for this show. Starting next week, Amelia and her consigliere John DeVore will be liveblogging every episode. Get excited! The newest housewives (Jacqueline, Teresa, Danielle, Dina, and Caroline), their “construction” workers husbands, big hair, big nails, and McMansions decorated like a Medieval Times dinner show won’t let us down. Seeing as though I can’t survive a Tuesday without a h’wife episode, here are the top five moments of Jerz genius so far. Keep reading »
Tyra tackled the issue of black women and girls hating their natural hair and examined the lengths they go to straighten it. I found it extremely sad that a six-year-old girl could hate herself so much at such a young age and has already figured out that she doesn’t fit the beauty ideal. I wonder if/when she’ll start hating her skin color, too. The idea that straight, silky hair is better than kinky hair is nothing new in the black community. In fact, Chris Rock’s “Good Hair” documentary examined it, too. Keep reading »
Anne Hathaway is the celebrity star of Lancôme’s new commercial for Magnifique perfume, but the location is the real star. The ad was filmed at The Box, New York City’s infamous cabaret. A man whispers to Anne, who goes onstage and performs a sensual scarf dance. Compared to what really goes on at The Box, Anne’s tease is tame. Keep reading »

I’m one of those girls who wears fancy matching under-things only by accident, so perhaps I’m not the best person to speak to this, but somehow I think there must be a better way to bring an “explosive style” to the bedroom than wearing grenade-top thigh highs. But, hey, if it’s your thing, you’re in luck — the weapon-themed lingerie is on sale for $10.50! [Spicy Lingerie via ideeli]

Askmen.com recently published a cute, albeit, standard little ditty about hitting on chicks at your high school reunion. The writer thought celebrating the passing years since high school graduation was a perfect opportunity to play catch up and score with all the ladies you wanted to but (because you were a pimple-infested, dork-virgin) never did.
Fair enough, but this had us thinking: What places should you absolutely under no circumstances (well … never say never …) try to get laid? Keep reading »
Oh, no! You know what that means? “Casual Encounters” is going to be even more of a minefield to navigate. [CNN] Keep reading »
While there are plenty of Twitter haters, we’re fans of the site. Our lives are busy, and it’s easier to communicate with others on our own terms than keep in touch them all via email, or, heaven forbid, in real life. Plus, Twitter brings out the pithy in people; they have to show they’re smart and clever — even with a 140-character constraint.
Over the past few months, we’ve been online dating but have found that reading guy’s profiles can be a bit of a time-suck — a lot of them are long-winded. Yes, we’d like to know whether we might be a match, but we’d also like to catch up on “The Real Housewives of New York” episodes we missed. So, we’re all for Radaroo, a free online dating system that uses Twitter to pair up people. While there aren’t many users yet, we hope Radaroo takes off. It could be like speed dating for witty writer-types! [Radaroo via Inventor Spot] Keep reading »
