ABC is letting me down. Following up Matt Grant, the hot British guy, with rejected Bachelorette contestant Jason Mesnick for the next season of The Bachelor is such a huge letdown. I know plenty of other women who watched the show, gag, liked the guy, but I found him to be wimpy, and mealy-mouthed, and completely devoid of charm and dazzle. Though I know the producers are hoping to go in a new direction by having a single dad as The Bach, I just don’t buy this as a good spin for a reality TV dating show. It’s irresponsible for a father to date that many women on national TV and then ask one of them to marry him at the end, without having the child get to know what could be his new mommy. But whatevs. I think I am just upset that the next season of The Bachelor is going to be devoid of sex appeal. Keep reading »

The show premieres on September 9. I just watched every single related video BravoTV has on its website and have come to the conclusion that it is going to rock for several reasons… Keep reading »
I am not afraid to say, that it was Paula Abdul’s “Opposites Attract” that taught me my first lesson in love; if he takes the bed, and she steals the covers, they must be a match made in relationship heaven. According to Paula, a relationship could, and would, flourish if lovers found themselves on opposing sides of the Myers Briggs Indicator.
Living in an industry town, more often than not, I have found myself in the throes of passion with a like-minded comedy-writer Democrat who favors savory snacks over sweet desserts. And most of those relationships have ended in embittered feuds over (I’ll admit) “who is funnier.”
As my mother likes to say, two spoiled brats cannot inhabit the same relationship.
So as I set off on my quest to find my mate of soul, he who encompasses all things different from me, I must first understand how different is too different? What are the differences that will allow a relationship to blossom in the sunshine of love? And what are the ones that will make it rain — creating a thunderstorm of the he-said-she-said-i-hate-you variety? Keep reading »
Plastic surgery just isn’t good enough anymore if you want to be an in-demand actor. Image Metrics is literally changing the face of performers through 3-D imaging, and just like a great pair of fake boobs, they’re even better looking than the real thing. The demo is so lifelike, you’ll swear you’ve known the spokesmodel since summer camp. So how do they do it? Amazingly enough, there’s no need for weird wires or funky doo-dads attached to the actor’s face, Image Metrics builds its models off a computer program that scans plain old video. It picks up every subtle movement (and we’d like to pick up their adorable animators). Check out this test video cutie trying to play his hero, Einstein. [Via Gawker]

For the last couple years, the dress has been taking each season by storm. And this fall season is no different. Designers are featuring sweater dresses in a myriad of incantations, making the sweater dress a staple piece to last through winter. Patterns, whether houndstooth, floral, or geometric are also hot for fall, and look for flourishes, like a hoodie or dropwaist, that update classic shapes. Keep reading »
