Esquire, the men’s mag, just named new mom Halle Berry, “Sexiest Woman Alive, 2008.” Not bad for a 42-year-old woman who spent a quarter of the year with a baby bump! Humbled, yet perplexed, by the honor after being in the business for 21 years, Berry asked, “Does being the sexiest woman alive imply that I know a thing or two about what’s sexy and, possibly, about sex itself? I’m not sure, but here’s what I do know: I know damned well I’m sexier now than I used to be!” Girl, you always looked good to us! So, in honor of Ms. Berry, who reminds us that, “Sexy is not about wearing sexy clothes or shaking your booty until you damn near get hip dysplasia; it’s about knowing that sexiness is a state of mind,” here are some other sexy women we’d like to congratulate for being who they are, just like Halle!

True friends understand you best and offer a solution or just a strong shoulder when life is at its worst. And they’re usually the first to celebrate with you when life is wonderful. But unfortunately, most songs are about trials of the heart not friendship. So we put together a list of our favorite friendship songs. After reading through the lyrics, call up your best homegirl and let us know in the comments which songs remind you of her. Keep reading »
I’m not really a flats kind of girl, but these are so chic that I would forgo an extra four inches of height. Purple patent is such an unexpected color for a shoe, but is right on trend for the season. Plus the zipper detail adds a little sumthin’, sumthin’. These would look so hot with a pair of plaid, wide leg trousers, especially if the plaid has a thread of purple. Or they can be worn with a short skirt or dress and stunning hosiery. Don’t worry about having to match the shoes to your bag because coordinating is more important than matching. If purple is not your color, the shoes are also available in dark red patent, black patent and gold snakeskin. [$24.99, Target] Keep reading »
Groundbreaking researchers, at Utrecht University in the Netherlands, have found that premature ejaculation is all thanks to DNA. Previously thought of as a psychological problem or the result of effective lingerie, these doctors discovered it simply has to do with the gene that controls serotonin. The good is that it’s nobody’s fault that the sexy party is over before it really began. The bad news is that a third of men have this gene. So, what is a girl to do? Here are our Sexy Solutions For Setbacks In The Sack…

If you’re planning on ordering online, place your order today or tomorrow because shipping is just 99 cents! Keep reading »
Yesterday we posted about the new website “Yes We Can (Hold Babies)”, a blog comprised of adorable Pro-Obama babies and babies being held by the Democratic Presidential candidate. Then we noticed a strange thing: while it’s easy to find plenty of Associated Press photos of Obama holding and smooching little rugrats, McCain is rarely photographed with babies (see above EXCLUSIVE PROOF). Of the results for McCain, none of them actually featured the Senator HOLDING a child, though one was of him standing in front of a picture of a fetus. So what does this mean? Does the photographic record show that McCain HATES babies? Weigh in! Keep reading »
It was early spring, late afternoon, a couple of years ago and I was having beers and burgers with some girlfriends. It was warm enough that we sat on the patio outside where we ate and drank and talked about boys.
I was the youngest in the group — still a few months shy of my 30th birthday and conversation soon turned to the challenge of finding a good man before we all died alone with a bunch of cats in the living room and stale cereal in the cabinet.
“I don’t understand why it’s so hard,” I said, “I just want someone who’s funny and charming and kind and gracious and creative and ambitious and smart. Curly hair, glasses and dimples don’t hurt either,” I added.
My friend Meg immediately said she knew the perfect guy for me — that he was everything on my list.

Women in Iran will soon have cars made just for them. According to BBC News, Iran’s biggest car producer, Iran Khodro, will make cars suited for females with features such as automatic transmission, parking and navigation aids, a jack for changing tires without getting grease on clothes, and feminine colors. So, the car is sexist in a way (what are these “feminine colors” anyway?), but at least women will be able to get around the town. And really, there shouldn’t be anything shameful about driving an automatic. Other than the feminine paint job, don’t these special cars sounds just like the ones most Americans drive?

Second Presidential debate down, one more to go before we vote in November! Hooray! Last night’s debate between Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain was done in the “town hall” style, in which Average Joe (Sixpacks!) asked some of the questions, while moderator Tom Brokaw directed. While mind-numbingly boring at times, most pundits from all the major networks agree — Obama took this one, hands down. But what were the real highlights of the night? My observations, after the jump… Keep reading »
On last night’s “Rachel Zoe Project,” Rachel and her husband, Rodger, got into an argument about how they should celebrate their 10th anniversary. Rachel wanted to have a party with 200 of their closest friends and renew their vows. Rodger thought they celebrate with just the two of them and maybe take a trip to Palm Springs — to which Rachel responded, “You want to go away with me, you, my Blackberry, and my laptop?….Fine, we won’t have a party.” So, my friends, we ask you: Do you think wedding anniversaries should be celebrated by the couple alone, or should friends and family be invited, too? Leave your thoughts in the comments. Keep reading »
