Every television show needs to have that filler episode that addresses the obvious issues that are going to come up, particularly in the case of “Gossip Girl” — Where can they all go to college in order to continue the show? Just like “Beverly Hills, 90210″ and “Dawson’s Creek”, we’re sure creator Josh Schwartz is already worried about how to move his show about high school to the next natural step — college. However, last night’s episode of “Gossip Girl” was highly unrealistic and missing that certain je ne sais quoi that gets me all revved up for Monday nights. Keep reading »
Levi Johnston has been laying low since his big appearance at the Republican National Convention, but, at last, he speaks! Levi had a chat with the Associated Press the other day while standing in his parents’ driveway, saying he isn’t being forced to marry Bristol Palin, and that he’s “looking forward to having him” — the “him” in question is his baby with Bristol, due Dec. 18. But some of the things mentioned in the AP article got us thinking about whether he’s really ready for fatherhood.
- He’s Forgetful: While some might say Levi getting Bristol’s name tattooed on his finger is a really sweet sign of his devotion to her, he really did it because he lost the promise ring she had given him and thought he’d lose other rings if he replaced it. So, he might lose other important things, like his child.

I watched “The Real Housewives Of Atlanta” this weekend and was blown away by the rampant materialism, excess, and over-the-top maintenance enjoyed by the stars of the show. Most of the women are married, or have boyfriends, who revel in their traditional feminine shallowness, and while these women may be EXTREME examples, I have often noticed that some of the most pain-in-the-ass women I know have nice, normal, sweet guys dying at their feet. IS there an appeal to high-maintenance women? And what the hell is it? Do I need to spend three hours getting ready to go to the gym in order to find a nice new man these days? I chatted up the guys on my IM to find out. Keep reading »
There are two nice things about clothes made for teenagers: 1) They are usually very trend focused, and 2) They are generally inexpensive because what adolescent has loads of money to spend on clothes. These two factors mean that you can try out the latest craze even if you’re low on dough. This season, short skirts and feather headbands are everywhere, including Alloy. Keep reading »

If you thought that Bridezillas we’re bats%&t crazy, just wait until you hear how the average engaged woman feels about doin’ it before she says “I do!” According to the New York Post, a whopping 53% of brides-to-be won’t have sex with their future spouse for at least a month before their wedding. Forty-two-percent said they have also put a stop to any hanky-panky. Seriously?! Ladies, it’s not like you’re going to get your hymen to grow back in time to wear the white dress. You’ve already tried his family jewels on for size. Why should you deny yourself passion during these highly romantic/stressful times? Give it up, turn it loose! No wonder brides are always so up tight about floral arrangements and grooms go nuts at their bachelor parties! Come to think of it, I guess now I know what the “something blue” refers to. [NY Post]

The people behind New Zealand website Flossie.com thought, “Why isn’t finding a man as easy as buying a can of Coke?” So, they decided to make it that simple by creating a vending machine that dispensed men in the buyer’s preferred type: classic, action, romantic, rich, foreign, and Mr. Perfect. (Mr. Perfect is a vibrator.) They installed the vending machine on a sidewalk, and as people passed by, they got a big, surprise when they pushed a button and a man bearing flowers walked out. In a little over 30 minutes, all of the men had been dispensed, and 200 vibrators had homes. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could push a button that read “Adventurous Music- And Book-Loving Slightly Bearded Cute Boy” and out one came? [Flossie.com via Notcot.org] Keep reading »
Sooner or later, everybody falls in love. When it’s good, it’s freaking amazing: birds sing, the sun shines, your Mom doesn’t annoy you so much and your checks are perpetually rosy, When it doesn’t work out, however, it burns like the fiery pits of hell. All that was good with the world has been obliterated – along with your self-esteem. And the way you’ll likely add insult to injury be inflicting even more torture upon yourself – well, that’s not so pretty either. Either you can’t eat or you’re eating pint after pint of Ben & Jerry’s, you’re sleeping all day or not sleeping at all or you’ve either abandoned all personal grooming habits or, in a particularly “screw-it” moment, went and got a majorly unflattering short haircut [Or a totally flattering one! -- Editor] or tattoo. As a post-dumpage Lloyd Dobler was labeled by his buddies outside the Gas ‘n Sip in “Say Anything”, you’re null and void. Keep reading »
Rumor has it, Sarah Palin is going to appear on this Saturday’s episode of “Saturday Night Live”, and while everyone seems to think she’ll end up spoofing Tina Fey’s American Express commercial, I’m kinda hoping she’ll poke fun at herself. Were I talented enough to be a head writer at “SNL” and persuasive enough to be Sarah Palin’s press secretary, these are the five skit concepts I would go with for her appearance on the sketch comedy show. Oh hell, just make her the host!
