Kelly Valen, author of The Twisted Sisterhood, has a bone to pick with women, particularly with the mob mentality that can evolve when a group of girls gets together.
She, like so many females, had a Bad Sorority Experience back in the day. A really bad one, in fact: After she lost her virginity to a fraternity pledge in what was then known as a “ledge party” — i.e., an unbeknownst-to-her public deflowering with all of his frat brothers looking on — her sisters turned against her, eventually blackballing her from the sorority house.
Decades later she ran into one of those same “sisters” at a Pet Smart one day, and was surprised to find her former sorority nemesis chasing her through the cat food aisle — “Kelly! Kelly! Is that you!?” — acting as if none of it had ever happened. Read more … Keep reading »

There’s only one left out of the 12 made, however, so don’t wait too long if you want it! [$32, Sense of Fashion] Keep reading »
Being a mayor in Italy has to be fun, now that Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has upped the country’s ability to create laws to combat “anti-social behavior.” Take, for example, Mayor Luigi Bobbio of the resort town Castellammare di Stabia.
