Shelling out the big bucks for lingerie isn’t that uncommon — this La Perla bra alone costs $238. But would you spend $250 on cashmere boxer briefs for your boyfriend? Last weekend, T, The New York Times Style Magazine featured this semi-sheer pair by designer Maurizio Amadei. They’re not really meant to be worn all the time, more like loungewear rather than everyday underwear. They look kind of cozy, and I think I could be enticed to buy a pair for a special occasion. Amelia says she would only buy them if they were on sale for $100. Well, I wasn’t able to find them at a discount online, in fact, I couldn’t find any cashmere men’s underwear. A gay friend advised that cashmere isn’t a popular fabric for underthings because it stretches out too much and wouldn’t flatter anyone, even David Beckham. “It would look like you’re wearing a diaper or borrowed your chubby bro’s skivvies,” he told us. A quick search did reveal a few pairs that are allegedly as soft as cashmere. See the packages after the jump.

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: I was a guest co-host on The View. I had to go on in 30 seconds, but I was naked and wasn’t wearing any makeup. And Rosie (yes, I realize she’s no longer on the show) was like, “GET ON SET OR ELSE!” I was terrified. —In The Nude On National TV, New York, NY Keep reading »
Thanks to Feministing for reminding us to mention something that’s been hardcore bugging us about this whole Eliot Spitzer scandal. Why do the wives of these politicians have to get up on stage with them while they confess their sins to the public? Chances are they probably just found out the truth themselves and instead of getting to behave like normal betrayed women (whether that means crying, screaming, breaking glasses, plotting revenge, decapitation, or all of the above), they have to do the whole “stand by your man” thing. So unfair! Is that the price you have to pay as the wife of a public official? Can’t these ladies at least chill in the green room scowling and clutching a glass of bourbon, their dignity intact? It’s such a bummer to have to play supportive wife to these cheating scoundrels. Anyway, this is indeed a good excuse for a lil’ Tammy Wynette. Enjoy! Keep reading »
Gotta admit, I wasn’t necessarily the hugest fan of Charlie on Lost — for starters, Dominic Monaghan played a Hobbit in those snoozeville Lord of the Rings movies (I have a similar prejudice against Elijah Wood for this reason). Second, Charlie’s character was kind of predictable with the heroin addiction and the “Claire, what about the baaaaaby?”-lines. But then Charlie turned out to be the ultimate hero in the final episode of last season and I totally cried. And then he started to seem hotter, especially in his brief “ghost” appearances this season. So when I saw that the image above (“Self-Portrait. Charlie.”) was part of an exhibit of photographs Monaghan has taken called “Happy Accidents”, I was totally won over by the lil’ guy. He’s cute, and he plays a good hero, and he takes nice pictures! Like the one after the jump, of Lost super hotties, Sawyer and Jack. Keep reading »
So, we’re basically on the edge of seats waiting for the bazillionth season of The Bachelor to premiere next week (this time the hottie is a Brit!), but have no fear, there’s plenty more matchmaking poop floating in the crackpot colander know as reality TV! The CW network is set to premiere Farmer Wants A Wife on April 30, a show that will follow one straw-chewing okie as he tries to find love among 10 city-slickin’ women. Question: Is the farmer rich? Because no city gal is trading in her Manolos for manure if there isn’t a little cash in it. Not to be cynical or anything. The show, sadly, is after one of our other most favorite shows, America’s Next Top Model, so it is possible that we will be lured in if there’s nothing better to watch.

Oh Eliot Spitzer, what were you thinking? The Governor from New York admitted yesterday that he had been linked to a prostitution ring and government officials are pushing for him to resign or risk impeachment. But what’s really got our goat is the fact that this is yet another case of a powerful guy with a solid family risking it all for a little fun playing doctor with a hooker. In an article in AM New York, a psychotherapist says that high-powered people with fast-paced jobs and responsibility like dangerous, illicit, illegal behavior because it gives them that rush that they can’t get from anywhere else, since they’ve developed such a high-threshold for mental and emotional stimulation. Okay, fine, get that, but why are they also so stupid? “All reasoning and respect for the law go out the window,” says Jonathan Alpert.
