Maybe you’ve never admitted it out loud, but we all have the capacity to be cruel. The Bad Girlfriend has the capacity and then some. She’s a friend of ours who we love for being trustworthy and smart, funny and exceedingly loyal…to her girlfriends, that is. But boyfriends? That’s another story. We pity the fools who end up on her arm — give it a few months, a year, even three, and suddenly they won’t know what hit ‘em. We don’t expect you to love her, but we do expect that you may, begrudgingly, see a bit of yourself in her bad deeds.
You know that song by No Doubt, “Ex-Girlfriend”? The chorus goes, “Kind of always knew I’d end up your ex-girlfriend”? When I hear that song, I change the words to this: “Kind of always knew I’d end up a bad girlfriend,” because no matter what, I inevitably do. I don’t mean to be sleazy. I don’t set out thinking, “I’m going to cheat, lie, and steal from this sucker,” each time I enter a new relationship, but I do. For some reason, I am totally cruel to dudes. Still, after each fresh new breakup, I feel that I’ve learned a valuable lesson from the experience. And that counts for something, right? Keep reading »
“Can you really not get preggers if you have sex on the last days of your period?” — Hating Condoms, Cleveland, OH
How many times have you heard an “Oops” story? Every Christmas there’s always that relative that drinks too much eggnog and says something like, “You know, Larry was a mistake. We were done having kids. We wanted to go to Bermuda.” I’m sure if Larry was a lawyer and not still living with his mother, she wouldn’t say that. But you get my drift.

In Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day, Delysia Lafosse has to choose between three men: the rich club owner who gave her a job and an apartment, the young producer who could give her the lead role in his musical, and the poor piano player. Well, the poor piano player is played by Lee Pace, which makes the decision an easy one, in our opinion. We didn’t get into Pushing Daisies last fall, but maybe we’ll give it another chance if watching it means we’ll get to see Lee and his incredible eyebrows every week. Keep reading »
Well, clearly the producers of the recently announced 90210 spin-off haven’t had a chance to read our perfectly outlined concept for their show. Variety now has details on the project, which sadly does not include Guidance Counselor Valentine, Principal Sanders, or school nerd Hannah Zuckerman. Lame! That said, as opposed the original series’ all-white cast, the spin-off already has an African-American character and a character of Middle-Eastern descent, not to mention a “wannabe socialite who hosts her own YouTube series” named Silver. As in…David Silver?! One can hope! [Variety] Keep reading »
Have you ever dreamed that you slept with your father? Or rode a mechanical bull while a coworker watched? We have and were disturbed for months. Fortunately, dreams don’t always mean what you think they do, and having sex with your father is nothing to worry about, so long as it only happens in your subconscious. Here, we ask psychologist Veronica Tonay, Ph.D. to decode your crazy dreams each and every week, so that you can sleep at night, and dream some more.
THE DREAM IN QUESTION: My dad had just left my mom for Margaret Cho. He was staying in a bachelor pad, and my mom wasn’t bummed about it at all. In fact, she seemed happy. (In real life they are still together after 38 years.) I was staying at my dad’s place and had to sleep in his bed since it was a studio. He had a hot body and accidentally spooned me, thinking I was Margaret Cho. While I was disgusted, I was also slightly turned on. WTF is wrong with me? — Cuddling Daddy

Nahla Ariela and Shiloh Nouvel are certainly unique baby names (ain’t nothin’ wrong with that!), but celebrities, in their quest to be obnoxiously “different” often give truly bizarre names to their kids — ones that are sure to get them beat up in 5th grade. The Times U.K. put together a list of the 50 weirdest last year, some of which we agreed with and some that we, well, thought were darn cute. Our picks for the Top Ten Worst, plus five weird celebrity baby names we actually think are cute, all after the jump…
