The 10 Best
1. “For those of you who don’t think length matters, I disagree.” – Martha Stewart, holding a 15-ft.-long hot dog, on an episode of her TV show.
2. “I really don’t believe that you will love the same thing when you’re 20 as you do at 30. So that was my rule: Before the age of 25, I would never get married…. I feel like you have to get to know yourself, know what you want, spend some time by yourself and be proud of who you are before you can share that with someone else.”—Beyonce
3. “I shave and groom my private areas. It’s a better presentation for me. If men require women to go through the pain, we should return the favor.” — Diddy Keep reading »
“I am an Aquarius woman who has been with a Pisces man for four blissful months. Around the end of the fourth month, I was confronted by his other girlfriend whom I didn’t know existed. After hearing everything that went on and being so filled with fury, we both plotted and schemed to bring him down. But then, this man assured me that he had “emotionally” ended things with his girlfriend, that he never had sexual relations with her after meeting me and was planning to end it. We both agreed to bury the incident and try working on the relationship again.
The problem is, I continue to doubt and accuse him of lying to me when he is out with ‘friends’ and he can’t get over the things his other girlfriend told him about. She told him everything I said in anger and the things we plotted. Since then, he has not loved me the same and continually brings up the past every time we argue. I really love this man and want to work things out, but I wonder if things will ever be the same again. I feel as if my emotional walls are building back up and I am growing tired of my suspicion and his keeping a record of every wrong move. My birth date is 2/2/79, 9am, Korea. Please help.” – Ready to Give Up Keep reading »

Doctors in St. Louis successfully transplanted an ovary from one twin to another who had gone into early menopause at age 15. The transplanted ovary restored the woman’s full fertility and she gave birth at 38. According to researchers writing in the New England Journal of Medicine, this is the first time an entire ovary has been transplanted and resulted in a live birth.
Dr. Sherman Silber of the Infertility Center of St. Louis said that this success could help two groups of women: those who have undergone chemotherapy and lost ovarian function, and those who want to extend the time they are fertile. For the latter group, a doctor could remove one of two ovaries when the patient is in her 20s and freeze it. Then, when she’s in her 40s, the doctor could transplant it back. Because so many women are having babies later in life, this could be away to avoid costly rounds of in vitro fertilization. Putting one ovary in the freezer might soon become as commonplace as depositing money in the bank for retirement. [Reuters] Keep reading »
Maybe it’s because we’re forced to deal with our families more than usual during the holidays, but these can be trying times for women without rings on their wedding fingers. Aunt Esther’s annual grab at your left hand and subsequent clucking over your naked ring finger is annoying, but you write it off because she’s senile and will die soon. When your cousin Myrna gasses on about her impending nuptials over eggnog, you actually feel a little sorry for her because you see the way her betrothed keeps eyeing her sister. But when your baby sister flashes the rock that her professor-turned-paramour put under the tree, you succumb to a little condition called “The Ring Tizzy.” Keep reading »
We’ve all dated that one guy we probably shouldn’t have because he was wrong in every way. We ignored the flaming red flags and let our hearts get broken. After we learned our lesson, we thought we should warn younger, less-experienced women about no-good men. And music is one of the best ways to spread a message. Keep reading »
You read that right; Robert Pattinson is just too manly … for a modeling career, anyway. Not surprisingly, before he became the breakout heartthrob he is today, Robert started out as a child model at the tender age of 12. His pretty-boy look worked well for him until he turned 16 and became too “much of a guy.” He tells British magazine Closer, “When I first started I was quite tall and looked like a girl, so I got lots of jobs, because it was during that period where the androgynous look was cool. Then, I guess, I became too much of a guy, so I never got any more jobs. I had the most unsuccessful modeling career.” It’s hard to believe that with those luscious eyebrows, sallow cheeks and long, thick wavy hair, he would be accused of being too manly … or that he had a most unsuccessful modeling career. But that’s Robert for you, I guess — a regular “Paul Bunyan,” as New York jokingly referred to him. [NYMag] Keep reading »
You thought you had it all figured out. Marry a rich guy, you’ll never have to work, and you can spend the rest of your life shopping. Unfortunately, the global recession has thrown a wrench into your well-crafted plans. Now that sugar daddy bank accounts are shrinking, trophy wives are discovering they may be s*** out of luck when it comes to living the good life. In the UK, a trophy wife named “Katie” finds out she’s going to have to cut back on her mani-pedis and seaweed wraps — not to mention having her black AmEx snipped in half. “You loser!” she screams at her husband. “You’ve destroyed my life!” Trophy wives are becoming “Toxic Wives,” as their love for their significant others dwindles in tandem with their hubbies’ bank balances. Divorce rates are rising, and “for richer, for poorer” no longer applies. One wealthy husband turned to his wife in the middle of the night and asked her if she’d love him if he lost everything. Her reply? “F— no!” As it turns out, most toxic trophy wives aren’t leaving their husbands to join the work force. They’re looking for new rich men to replace the newly poor ones.
