It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “Snoop Dog,” that guy who “just happened” to guess the password to his girlfriend’s email and discovered she’d been emailing back and forth with an ex. “The emails aren’t really all that exciting,” he wrote, “just things like ‘how are you doing?’ and updates on people they both know and general stuff like that. I’m not sure what to do here. Should I confront her about it?” After the jump, find out whether he confronted her or not and if they’re still together. Keep reading »
Well, look at that. I guess we know what Violet Affleck’s favorite tween book series is—Nancy Drew. I’m so with you, Violet! I love that your mama, Jennifer Garner, has picked out such good reading material for you. [Celebuzz] Keep reading »
This Halloween season, American Apparel introduced its “Costume Builder,” which we found out was really just a way to pass off clothes you already wear as a “costume.” Turns out, Urban Outfitters has also launched a halloween shop on its website, and although the offerings are slightly more holiday-appropriate, it’s still a bizarre mix of items.

I am endlessly entertained by the divides between men and women when it comes to fashion: the differing opinions on the definition of “expensive,” the controversy over red lipstick (is it glamorous or reminiscent of the Joker?), the thousands of times throughout history that women have asked, “Honey, what do you think of this dress?” only to be met with a vacant stare.
So we decided to start a new feature where we round up a few dudes and ask for their honest opinion on an outrageous clothing item, accessory, or fashion trend. Christian Louboutin’s limited-edition Marie Antoinette heels seemed like the perfect first candidate. These blindingly bright and ornately embroidered peep-toe pumps retail for $6,295. Only 36 pairs were made. I think they’re amazing. My best friend thinks they’re ridiculous. Here’s what the guys had to say … Keep reading »
The Smoking Jacket has a pretty hilarious roundup of some of the strangest phone sex lines that you’ve (we assume) never heard of and (we hope) will never call. My favorite? Girls Farting Phonesex. That is the actual name of the service. “Yea, I know, It’s not normal for a girl to like to talk about something like a farting fetish, but who cares!” That comes from the associated blog. This makes me wonder what the girls have to do before they work a shift. Eat a lot of beans? Beano would not be a friend of the woman who farts into the phone for a living. Check out the rest at The Smoking Jacket. Keep reading »
Take a close look at this picture from J.Crew’s website. Notice anything strange? Like, oh, the hairy-as-hell legs the model is sporting? We’re thinking the explanation could be:
A) J.Crew is finding its inner feminist (unlikely).
B) Some disgruntled graphic designer decided to play a prank on the company.
C) Somebody had a really dull razor the day of the shoot. [Dlisted] Keep reading »
