Dear Wendy: “What Should I Do With My Engagement Ring?”

A little over a year ago, I was engaged to a douche of a guy. He lied to me, took me for granted, cheated, and generally treated me terribly for the 2.5 years we were together. When he broke off the engagement, he began to freak out about how he had messed things up and how guilty he felt, and this threw him into a period of extreme instability. He was so emotionally sensitive that I didn’t dare try to offer the ring back. He was absolutely destroyed when I tried to give him his house key back, so I was afraid to try to offer back something as emotionally loaded as the engagement ring. Now, this ring was, of course, very cheap. We’re talking approximately $100 cheap. I have no interest whatsoever in keeping this ring. He has now calmed down and moved on, and I have moved on, and I want to get rid of this ring. It is just sitting in a box in a drawer and I want it gone. Would it be out of line to try to give it back after all this time? There’s no chance I’ll be able to sell it for anything much (pretty worthless), I can’t think of anyone I want to give it to, and I just can’t keep it anymore. What do I do? — Ring Around the Roses

Touch Screen-Friendly Gloves

The downside to texting in winter? Freezing fingertips. The upside? Cute fingerless gloves that let you show off your manicure (added bonus). We’re digging these ribbed cashmere-blend “glovelettes” from J.Crew for their extra-long sleeves, which add warmth on days when you don’t have a long-sleeve layer on under your coat. Or, use them to extend the wearing period of your cape-like jackets by another few weeks.

Levi Johnston Says He’s Qualified To Run For Mayor Of Wasilla


Oh, Levi Johnston. The ladies of “The View” took him to task yesterday morning over his plan to run for mayor. When they asked him about his qualifications, his response was, “Qualifications for mayor? There really are none. You’ve got to live in city limits for one year. You don’t need a high school diploma, which I’m working on anyway … I believe anybody [can be mayor]. You gotta listen to the people. I’ll go around and talk to people like any other mayor.” From there, Sherri Shepherd asked him if he might be hurting the people by running against someone with more experience. Oh, and then Whoopi asked what his platform is. “At this point in time, I couldn’t tell you,” he said. Please let the people of Wasilla turn out in record numbers to vote against this guy in 2011.

Friends: they’re supposed to make your life better, right? But sometimes we accidentally get caught up in an all-too-toxic relationship that only brings stress, sadness and an overwhelming desire to gouge our eyeballs out with a q-tip.

After the jump, the five kinds of frenemies you need to ditch pronto. And tell us about the worst friend you’ve ever had in the comments.

Judge Won’t Stop Tila Tequila Sex Tape, Claiming “Tila Exploits Her Sexuality”

I never thought I’d see the day when Tila Tequila wouldn’t want a sex tape of herself released. She’s turning over a new leaf, I guess? Or maybe she’s just found another way to keep herself in the news? Last week, Tila sought a restraining order to prevent the release of yet another sex tape, which was filmed seven years ago during a trip with her then-boyfriend. But the judge said Tila’s lawyer hadn’t made a good enough case to warrant a restraining order on the tapes.

Something else went down, though, which was really not cool. Keep reading »
