Dear Wendy Updates: “Over-Thinker” Responds

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 Over-Thinker, the college girl who returned to school after a carefree summer break to find that her relationship with her boyfriend wasn’t so great with the added stress of school. They were hardly seeing each other and doing most of their communicating via text. One day he even told her (by text, of course) that the only reason someone would date her is to have consistent sex. He later apologized and said he didn’t mean it, but was that enough for Over-Thinker? Keep reading »

First Look: Sweet Valley Confidential!

You guys. I’m kind of losing my mind this morning. Behold, on the left, the cover of the upcoming book Sweet Valley Confidential, which takes places 10 years after high school. According to the website for the book, which comes out in holy-crap-why-so-far-away March 29, 2011, twins Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield are now estranged. Over-achieving Elizabeth is living in New York City, while vapid (but decidedly more fun) sister Jessica is stuck in Sweet Valley. What did Jessica do to Liz that was so bad that the good-hearted twin actually wants revenge?! Dying to know! But more shocking to me is the fact that, apparently, author Francine Pascal (right) is a real, live human being who has been writing the books for all this time — since 1983! My whole life, I just assumed it was a pen name, like V.C. Andrews! [People] Keep reading »

Get Ready For “The Real Housewives Of Miami”

Because there is apparently a never-ending supply of housewives and people who want to watch them battle it out, Bravo is taking it to Miami for the latest installment of “The Real Housewives.” In fact, “The Real Housewives of Miami” has already been shot and is ready to air, but was originally intended to be a different show, reportedly called “Miami Social Club” but unrelated to the failed show “Miami Social.” The series will begin sometime between November and January, but since it wasn’t intended to focus on housewife drama, it’s allegedly going to be a “tamer, sexier show,” which sounds lame. No one watches the housewives for their classiness; we watch them because they have no concept of reality and because, occasionally, someone goes nuts and does something awesomely destructive. And who goes to Miami to tone it down? Miami’s all about bedazzled, tan, and retired people in fanny packs! Hopefully, it will be like “The Golden Girls: The Early Years”! Keep reading »

“Mad Men”‘s Props Department Spoiled The Surprise For Jessica Paré

“[The ring is] beautiful, and it’s real diamonds. Like 1.5 karats or something. The funny story about that is before I’d read the script, props had to measure me for a ring. So she came in and was, like, ‘I don’t know how to do this without giving anything away, but we still have to do it.’ I didn’t want to think about what it might mean. Until I read the script, I wasn’t believing anything.”

— One of our Celebs To Watch, Jessica Paré, might say she was just as surprised as you were that Don Draper proposed to his secretary, Megan. (Um, spoiler alert?) But the truth is that the “Mad Men” props department spilled the beans when they came by to measure her ring finger. [AMCtv.com] Keep reading »
