Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Takes Issue With My Weight”

I have been in a long-distance relationship for six months with a guy I’ve known about two years through work; we’ve seen each other in person for what amounts to a month during vacations and we talk daily via Internet chat and video. I’m in my late twenties; he’s in his early thirties. I really care for him and thought I was falling in love. Things were going really well on our last vacation up until the end of the trip when I asked him was there anything in the relationship bothering him, and he told me that while I had a very pretty face, my weight has been an issue for him. I have dropped some weight since I’ve first known him and currently wear S-M shirts, US size 8 in pants. He soon apologized after seeing how much it hurt me, but I know it’s honestly what he feels, and is a factor in his attraction to me. He said that while it was a factor, it wasn’t a “dealbreaker.” I can’t stop thinking about it and my self-esteem has taken a bruising. I was working on losing more weight, and this could be a kick in the butt to get on it, but I wonder what it could mean long-term. I sometimes want to end the relationship because of this and because he doesn’t seem to be as attached as I am, but a part of me wants to see what happens next year. Perhaps I’m moving too fast anyway. What do you think? — Weighty Issues

I Moved And Now I Don’t Have Any Friends — Help!

Oh, no! It’s Female Friendship Week, and I don’t have any friends! OK, that’s not entirely true. I do have girlfriends. They just live in other states. Recently, I moved, and now I don’t have anyone to pal around with. Finding new girlfriends? I guess I’ll have to work on that. Keep reading »

Beyonce Totally, Maybe, Pregnant With Jay-Z’s Baby!

Is Beyonce pregnant? That’s what Us Weekly claims in its new issue, on stands Friday (but in my hot little hands now!). According to the mag — which I think has a solid 90 percent accuracy rate — B wasn’t planning on getting knocked up and was caught off guard by the news, but, according to a source, she and Jay believe their little bun in the oven “is a gift from God and she’s so happy.” How long before she and Jay issue a denial — or a confirmation? 10 … 9 … 8 … [Us Weekly] Keep reading »

Kanye West Flashes His New Diamond And Gold Grin


The “Kanye West Is A Talented, But Idiotic Douche” file is getting full! Yesterday, the rapper appeared on Ellen DeGeneres’ show and proudly showed off his new blingin’ smile. Apparently, that ain’t no temporary grill — Kanye claims to have had his bottom row of teeth removed and replaced with diamond and gold implants because that’s “what rock stars are supposed to do.” Dude, you do know that pricey grin will still get food stuck in it from time to time, right?
