Iman On Loving David Bowie And Marriage

“David doesn’t fight. He is English, so he just stays quiet. I’m the screamer. Then he always makes me laugh. It’s like cabaret … I still fancy him—totally! After all these years … I vowed to myself when I got married that I would cook every night. I find it very therapeutic.”

Yet Another Disappointing Harassment Case In The Finance World

Oh look, it’s another sex scandal rocking the finance world. A group of 17 Irish accountants at PricewaterhouseCoopers are under fire after passing around a document which ranked the top 10 most attractive women in the office. As these things go, the original email made its way out of the office and into the papers, and is now a national scandal in Ireland. The emails list each woman’s full name, department and contact information, and repeatedly treat the women as (no surprise) objects. Keep reading »

Ladies, You Don’t Want A Recommendation Letter To Call You “Kind”

Bad news, ladies: being described as “caring,” “sensitive,” “kind” or “nurturing” in a recommendation letter can work against you. According to research published in the Journal of Applied Psychology, of 624 letters of recommendation submitted on behalf of 194 applicants for eight positions at a university, women are more likely to be described with stereotypically “feminine” adjectives by both male and female letter writers and they are less likely to get offered the job if tainted with these “feminine” descriptions. Researchers took the letters, removed identifying, gendered information, and controlled for things like papers published and honors received. The search committee rated the letters in which the subject was described as “feminine” the lowest for both men and women, but women’s letters of recommendation letters are where these descriptors were most likely to appear. What are some of the words more likely used to describe men? “Confident,” “aggressive,” “ambitious,” “independent,” and “daring.” According to Inside Higher Ed, scholars who analyzed the research said there are “clear patterns” of word choice in recommendation letters.

Jessica Simpson Is Totally Happy For Nick Lachey, She Swears!

“I am extremely, extremely happy for him. I couldn’t be more happy for Nick. I don’t know where all those rumors came from. My mom actually called me and told me that everybody was saying that I was ‘saddened.’ And I was just in complete shock. You know, our relationship was over a really long time ago, so it would be nice if everybody could move on with us and really just celebrate the love between him and Vanessa. I do, and I wish them nothing but the best.”

Jessica Simpson called into Ryan Seacrest’s radio show to shoot down rumors that she was “saddened” to hear that her ex-husband Nick Lachey is engaged to Vanessa Minnillo. Personally, I never thought Jessica might be bummed that Nick was getting remarried because she, like, misses him. I just thought she might be upset because he got remarried first. But I guess I was wrong. [via Dlisted] Keep reading »
