Girl Talk: When Marriage Means More To Families Than The Couples Themselves

My boyfriend and I have been together for just under 2 ½ years and at the risk of sounding gag-arrific, I’ve really never been happier. Not only do we love each other, but we actually like each other a lot, too — two things I’ve learned don’t always go hand in hand. We have tons in common, have a great time together, always make each other laugh, and never run out of stuff to talk about. Among some of our topics of conversations are: vacation plans, buying a place in Brooklyn, having kids (when, why, and what to name them), and whether, when we’re old and gray, we’ll be like the senior couples we see in the park sometimes who hold hands on the bench and swap sections of the Sunday New York Times. One of the topics that doesn’t crop up in our conversations very much, despite everything else we discuss, is marriage, something it seems like a lot of people — my family, especially — can’t seem to understand.

Serious Bling: 500 Carat Diamond Discovered

Miners in Lesotho, a kingdom in southern Africa, found one of the world’s largest diamonds, a near-perfect gem weighing nearly 500 carats, said mining group Gem Diamonds on Sunday. The diamond, which has not been named yet, was discovered on September 8 and was then analyzed by experts in Antwerp, who found it to weigh 478 carats, with very few inclusions and of outstanding color and clarity.”It has the potential to yield one of the largest flawless D color round polished diamonds in history,” the company said in a statement. The Letseng Mine, where this stone was extracted from the earth, has also yielded four of the world’s 20 largest rough diamonds, including three that have been found in this century. The value of this diamond is hard to estimate because it hasn’t been cut into smaller gems. But a similar weight stone with lesser-quality color and clarity had recently sold for $12 million, said a Gem Diamonds spokesperson. I wonder how much of those millions will actually benefit the economy and people of Lesotho.

As stated above, this diamond, weighing in at nearly 500 carats, is not the most impressive diamond to be mined. After the jump check out ten of the world’s most famous diamonds. [AOL News] Keep reading »

Monday Menage: Emmy Winners Jeff Probst, Jeremy Piven, & Jon Stewart

Last night Emmy’s were a snooze fest, but there were some real winners we want to sleep with! First, Jon Stewart, the Daily Hotness alum who hosts “The Daily Show”, won a statuette for Outstanding Variety, Music, or Comedy Series. Stewart makes us sweat his sexy, suit wearin’ style and then gets us giggly with his silly side. The second stud with a statue, “Survivor”’s Jeff Probst, winner of the Outstanding Host for a Reality Program, makes being marooned on deserted island look GOOD. Something tells us, if we ever got a hold of the raw footage of that show, we’d have proof that perfectly bronzed Probst doesn’t have any tan lines. The third winner of the night, Jeremy Piven, aka Ari Gold from “Entourage”, has been making us want to seal the deal since his film roles in the early ’90s. He won last night for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, but we’d like to make him our main man…or at least part of the hottest ménage in Hollywood. So while these three winners have never been in anything together, we ladies of The Frisky would like to offer to be their first joint creative project. [Buzz Sugar] Keep reading »

We See Chick Flicks: My Best Friend’s Girl

Starring Kate Hudson, Dane Cook, Jason Biggs, Alec Baldwin
While the film “My Best Friend’s Girl” could be easily classified as a typical rom-com judging by the misleading commercials and cheesy poster, its filth factor actually pushes it into the “gross humor” category. And that is what made me love it even more. I cracked up the whole time, but I will forewarn you — Dane Cook haters should not pay the $11 bucks to see this film.

How To Survive The First Week Of A Broken Heart

My relationship status is in limbo. Eight days ago I was engaged. Now I don’t know what I am. I’m not single, but I’m certainly feeling an aloneness that I haven’t felt in four and half years — it’s traumatizing and weirdly liberating all at once. During the first few days of this new stage of my life, I found it impossible to get out of bed, my bones ached, and I had a strong desire to sleep for the next 100 years. But since then I’ve discovered how to pick myself back up and offer to you 10 tips for surviving the first week of heartbreak.

10. Pop Pills: Obtained legally and under the advisement of your doctor, of course. Let’s face it, the first few days, it’s really hard to conceive of life being worth living. I don’t care if you’re all girl power strong and resilient — heartbreak can knock the wind out of any Calamity Jane. that’s why I can vouch for the effectiveness of a nice, doctor-prescribed dose of anti-depressants and sleeping meds to take the edge off. Sleep your ass off and after a couple deep dreams, you’ll wake up feeling refreshed.

Kristin Davis’ Clothing Line Is Very “Charlotte”

We were a little surprised when we heard that Kristin Davis had decided to get into the fashion business, putting her name on a line of clothes for department store chain Belk. What would her line look like? Would there be pearls? Now we know the answer: No pearls; however, there are plenty of ladylike styles, and lots of bows. While we think $108 is a little expensive for a polyester shift dress, the Kristin Davis Collection might satiate your appetite for celebrity-branded clothes, especially if you missed out on picking up the best pieces from Rachel Bilson’s Edie Rose for DKNY Jeans. If not, Eva Mendes’ line of bedding, Vida, is coming to Macy’s any time now. We’re gonna take a wild guess that her sex life is pretty enviable, and here’s to hoping that a set of her sheets will emit some of her sexual energy into our bedroom. Keep reading »
