There are many post breakup stages that a person can feel — anger, sadness, resentment, hatred, insecurity, just to name a few. However, at some point, one of your bolder friends will make that typical fast fix suggestion that “the best way to get over someone is to get under someone else.” Do I agree with this? Ehh. For some, a rebound only makes the split hurt more. I would suggest starting with a little flirting, maybe some kissing, and take it from there. But one thing I do believe in is “The Grace Period.” Keep reading »
Yesterday, you guys had a lot to say about the Narciso Rodriguez dress Michelle Obama wore on election night. And you weren’t the only ones. Everyone is voicing their views on whether the dress made a good statement, or a horrible, ill-fitting one. Currently, a People.com poll has 65 percent saying they hated Michelle’s fashion choice, and an Us Weekly poll found that 79.6 percent didn’t like her dress. Perhaps Michelle’s fashion choices will help Americans take more fashion risks over the next four years? Keep reading… Keep reading »
You already know that the first Tuesday of November is Election Day, but the first Thursday of November may just trump that in the hearts and minds of all you coupled-up women out there: it’s National Men Make Dinner Day! The people behind the movement explain that the ideal participant of NMMDD is a man who: “helps with household chores, has a sense of humour and is a great all-around guy [who] loves his wife/girlfriend, kids and pets…BUT NEVER LEARNED HOW TO COOK, and is somewhat afraid of the idea.” In case your man needs some persuading, the NMMDD has a list of the top ten reasons guys should participate, including “Several recipes include beer as a legitimate ingredient,” and “Whoever is cooking always gets the most attention from the dog.” But what about you? While most of you probably love the idea of your husband or boyfriend donning an apron and rolling up his sleeves in the kitchen, you may have a few concerns — like what to do if his meal sucks — so after the jump, the people behind NMMDD answer a few Frequently Asked Questions to put your mind at ease…

Earlier this week, we told you VH1 is casting Atlanta’s hottest men who want a piece of TLC’s Chilli. Well, now it seems the former members of the Grammy Award-winning group are really hard up for cash because T-Boz, whose real name is Tionne Watkins, is selling off her belongings. We came across this ad on Craiglist, which unequivocally states that T-Boz’s designer fashions, furnishings, antiques and, even, holiday decorations are up for grabs. Keep reading »
There are two sides to almost every breakup — the dumper and the dumpee. (Sorry, I don’t buy those “mutual” decision splits. I’m sure they happen, but they’re as rare as a fat cell on Madonna’s rear end, so they don’t count.) While it’s ideal when both sides leave the relationship with dignity, it’s much easier to be the Gracious Ex when you’re the dumper. After all, it was your bright idea to break up. You’ve had time to wrap your head around it, and really, who are you kidding? You probably have a replacement lined up already. So, we’re going to start with you, the breaker-upper, because your list of “How Not to Be” is a lot shorter. Without further adieu, you definitely should not … Keep reading »
Last night, an African-American man made television history! Sure, Barack has got our future in his very capable hands, but Will.i.am transported us straight into “Star Trek” territory! That’s right, the beat box behind the Black Eyed Peas, who also made the very viral “Yes We Can” video, was teleported into the CNN studio from Grant Park in Chicago. At a such a crucial time in our history, Anderson Cooper united nerds across this great land by saying, “Let’s see if we can beam him in.” Then, right there, before our very eyes, the first man ever in hologram, FOR REAL, on national television!
Okay, so Will.i.am got it a little mixed up and said he felt like he was in “Star Wars.” But, Cooper quickly corrected him that, much like cell phones, it was in fact The Trek that was responsible for this kind of totally awesome technology! [FYI, "Star Wars" had pre-recorded hologram messages ("Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope.") but could not beam people anywhere, though that sure would have come in handy.] Sigh, we love the Coop!
