“Twilight” fans, you’re probably not going to like what I have to say about the book, but I’m okay with that — just don’t get too angry.
Twilight disappointed me. The story was pretty captivating — I definitely didn’t want to put the book down — but Bella made feel sad. Here’s why… Keep reading »
There’s no better way to dress up an outfit when the weather turns cold than with tights. For a more exciting and sexy look, go with textured tights. These stunners from fancy pants hosiery peeps, Wolford, combine the perfect blend of fishnet and crochet knit. They may cost more than your average pair of stockings, but Wolfords are worth it. [$58, Bare Necessities] Keep reading »
Welcome to the Twilight book club! WARNING: Do not read the following post if you would not like to know what happens in the second half of the book.
I gotta say, it was hard to put the book down. There was so much action from chapter 13 through the end that I stayed up reading it until 1am. Keep reading to see our discussion, then tell us what you think in the comments! Keep reading »
This Friday, Ashley Alexandra Dupre, the call girl whose hotel trist with then-New York governor Eliot Spitzer led to the sex scandal of the year, will appear on ABC’s “20/20” for a sit-down interview with Diane Sawyer. If Spitzergate went down six months ago, why is Dupre talking now? Last week, the state of New York declared it wouldn’t be pressing charges against the Love Gov, meaning it’s unlikely Dupre will be charged for her part in the scandal, which frees the former escort to make her case to the public. On the same day, a lengthy profile of Dupre will appear in People. In excerpts from the interviews posted online, it sounds like the 23-year-old is looking to make apologies and mend her ways.

While us gals are pulling on tights and wrapping scarves around our necks to warm ourselves during the cold months, guys can get nature to help by growing out their facial hair. We’re big believers in scruff, but sometimes guys like to get a little experimental. After all, for them, facial hair is like an accessory. If your boyfriend has stopped shaving in hopes that he’ll have a woolly beard in a few weeks, check out the facial hair of Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Adrian Brody below so you can provide some guidance. Or just look at the manly faces and drool. Keep reading »
One of the biggest shockers of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” season finale was the breakup of Kim and Big Poppa, after only seven months of dating. We can’t believe she thought he would propose to her. We’re going to assume that he dumped her because, let’s face it, Kim had no reason to end things with her sugar daddy. We think the best prescription for this heartbreak and budget-ache is for Kim to jump right back into the dating pool. Check out who should be Big Poppa II after the jump. Keep reading »
Yesterday I posted about the Leading Lipstick Indicator, “a surprisingly reliable theory that suggests consumers turn to inexpensive little treats, like lipstick, when they start freaking out about the future.” It seems that included in those inexpensive indulgences, we women are splurging on sex toys to get us through the hard times. At a benefit last night for the New Space Women’s Center hosted at Babes of Toyland, owner and co-founder, Claire Cavanauh, told NYMag, “Right around when the AIG bailout started, and people’s consciousnesses were really being raised about what was going to happen, our sales went up 26 percent,” an increase she said the store hadn’t seen since just after the 9/11 terrorist attacks (the same time lipstick sales reportedly soared for leading cosmetic companies). The idea, explained benefit attendee and “Gossip Girl” actress Michelle Hurd (Eleanor Waldorf’s assistant, Laurel) is, “You can stay home, it’s free! And it’s warm, especially since here in New York it’s getting so cold.” She even bought her mother the Rabbit for Christmas last year, a vibrator made famous by a memorable “Sex and the City” episode. While I can appreciate a vibrator’s place in these trying economic times, I’m not quite sure I’d give the gift that keeps giving to the woman who gave me life (a tube of lipstick may be a more appropriate stocking stuffer), but what about you guys? Would you ever give someone — your mother or anyone else — a vibe as a holiday gift? [via NYMag] Keep reading »
So, People has spoken, and they’ve chosen “Australia” star Hugh Jackman as 2008′s “Sexiest Man Alive.” Jackman certainly is a hot piece — we like the tan, rugged look he sports in the movie — and he has that magical ability to play fey just as well as he plays macho. The proof is in the “The Boy From Oz.” The rest of the list is equally as smoking, featuring everyone from Blair Underwood to Jon Hamm. Still, if you had the power to vote, who would you have chosen as “Sexiest Man Alive”? Keep reading »
