Dear Wendy Updates: “Dude Dilemma” Responds

It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “Dude Dilemma,” the woman who was approached by a guy she had a “fun” first date with about getting a hotel room for their second date. “I declined the hotel offer,” she wrote, “but he pushed the issue, suggesting it would ‘make our relationship stronger.’” She asked me what I’d do if I were in her position and I said I’d MOA (move on already). After the jump, find out if she did just that. Keep reading »

Last weekend, the day after watching “The Kids Are Alright,” I was taking a stroll in my neighborhood in Brooklyn. Down the street, a women in a gray coat with the most beautiful red hair caught my eye. Her style was super dope, and she had such a confidence as she strolled down the cobblestone sidewalk in her heels. From far away, I assumed she was in her late 20s. As she got closer, I realized that she was a bit older, but projected a totally youthful vibe. And then as she passed by me, I thought, “Wait. That was Julianne Moore!”

This weekend brought Julianne’s 50th birthday, which is hard to believe. She is awesome, so together, and gorgeous. She is one of the many famous women over 50 who makes me far less freaked out about the whole process of growing up. After the jump, more ladies who make getting older look fun.

Screwed-Up Priorities: Woman Gets Glam For Weekly Mug Shot

Meet Kaylin Ransom, a 22-year-old resident of Ocala, FL. She spends her weeks doing hair and her weekends in Lake County Jail. The aptly named Ransom is under a plea deal for felony battery and child abuse, and whenever she checks into her “weekend home” she has to take a new mug shot. So following in the footsteps of Naomi Campbell, who famously wore haute couture while performing her community service with the New York Department of Sanitation, Ransom gets glam, in her own way, before taking her mug shots. She’s known for her lace-front wigs, extensions, false eyelashes, and photo shoot-worthy makeup. Now, if Ransom had lesser charges, I’d say this was a unique way of giving the system the finger, but charges of battery and child abuse warrant a lot more repentance, in my book, than getting fly for a weekly jail stay.
