Dear Wendy: “How Can I Tell My Sister Her Relationship Is Doomed?”

How do I tell my sister that she’s not going to get what she ultimately wants out of her boyfriend? My sister has been dating a very good guy for over two years, and I know she wants him to be her husband and the father of her children. However, there are some roadblocks. They have different takes on religion (she is a Christian, and hopes he’ll become one), marriage (he’s not sure he “believes” in it and she’s been planning her wedding since she was 12), and whether to have biological children or adopt (he wants to adopt). In addition to these serious clashes in life philosophy/goals, she often feels like he places more importance on his work than on his relationship with her. He IS a really good guy, and she is happy with him, but I think she’s deluding herself into believing that she can change him. I think it may be worth being honest with her — if I can help her see that this isn’t the best she can do, it could save her time and make the heartbreak a little less severe. At the same time, my own relationship is verging on perfect, and my boyfriend and I have values/goals that are very much in sync, so I don’t want to come off as condescending or braggy when I approach her about this (she has gotten envious in the past). How can I be honest without really hurting her? — Leery Little Sister

The Curse Of Reality TV: Why I’m Scared For The Palins

This Sunday night, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” premieres on TLC. Early clips from the series show Sarah “bein’ free” while climbing a glacier and communing with mama grizzlies. So I assumed that the show was going to be a glorified nature show.

But upon reading some reviews, it sounds like the show veers more into reality television territory than I would have expected. Keep reading »

Mel Gibson Says Ex “Provoked Me” And “Pushed My Emotional Buttons”

Mel Gibson just got ickier, if that’s possible. In a court document defending himself from his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva‘s claim that he beat her while she was holding their baby daughter, Lucia, Mel also addressed the infamous phone calls she recorded where he hurls abuse at her. Really, you see, Mel’s outrage was Oksana’s fault. He states in the court filing, “I felt that Oksana repeatedly attempted to push my emotional ‘buttons’ to provoke me during the calls; of course, I had no idea at the time that she was taping them.” Oh, so if Mel had known he was being taped when she was “provoking” him, he might not have said “You look like a f**king pig in heat and if you get raped by a pack of n**gers it will be your fault,” or threatened to kill her and bury her in the rose garden? Got it. While I have no doubt that Oksana manipulated Mel into making these embarrassing racist, misogynist statements on tape, the dude just refuses take responsibility for himself like a grownup. Maybe after the beaver movie, his next role should be as a domestic abuser. He’s got it down pat. [Radar Online] Keep reading »

Dick Van Dyke Was Saved By A Porpoise

“I woke up out of sight of land. I started paddling with the swells and I started seeing fins swimming around me and I thought ‘I’m dead!’ They turned out to be porpoises. And they pushed me all the way to shore. I’m not kidding.”

—Dick Van Dyke, who was so freaking cute when he was younger, recalls a surfing trip back in the day where he fell off his board and drifted off to sea. Oh, those crazy sea mammals. [People] Keep reading »
