Dear Wendy: “He Doesn’t Want Children, But I Do”

I began seeing a great guy about five months ago. I’m 23 and he’s 34, but the age difference has never been a big deal as we have a lot in common. We recently went on a weekend trip where he told me nonchalantly over dinner that he did not want children. When he asked me what I wanted, I replied that I did want children. The rest of the night wore on and I didn’t think much of it because I’m so young and I don’t see myself having kids for a while. But this morning, I began thinking about the situation some more, and now I’m very troubled. I will want kids some day, and if he doesn’t, eventually we will have to break up. Does is make sense to do it now, before we have invested time and emotions, or should I wait? Again, I don’t want to get married and have children soon, but I will one day, and if he doesn’t … what’s the point? — Sad at Work

Quotable: Michaele Salahi Shares Her Lucky Charms And Salad Diet

“I’m a skinny girl. I always was. I’ve never had an eating disorder in my life. And it hurts to be called anorexic … I start the day with a hot chocolate and cereal—I love Lucky Charms or Kashi GoLean—then some fruit. I don’t really eat a lot in the middle of the day. I have an early dinner, which is always a salad, with plain chicken, grilled or broiled … Honestly, I can’t believe those women have so much time to devote to my weight. If they get out there and move, they will look like me and be thin, and it’ll all be good.”

Michaele Salahi of the “Real Housewives of DC” defends herself against rumors of anorexia and spills what she eats in a day. Wait, so she consumes about 600 calories every 24 hours? I dunno, that sounds like an eating disorder to me. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »

Sex With Steph: I’m Married And My Sex Life Sucks

“I met my husband when I was 20 (he was 25). We dated for eight years, and then got married last year. I was totally insecure when we met. I stayed pretty insecure through most of my 20s. We went through some pretty rough times together (family deaths, job losses, etc). He’s a wonderful person and I could not have survived the tough times without him. But, I know I stayed in the relationship because I was afraid to leave. I was also a virgin when we started dating. We finally hit a smooth patch and decided to get married. Now, I’m regretting it.”

Why Perez Hilton Should Not Be On Nickelodeon

Perez Hilton is on the shortlist of awful human beings that I don’t want exposed to my future children. So why, oh why would the kids’ channel Nickelodeon invite the self-proclaimed Queen of All Media to guest star on one of its shows? Perez announced that on Friday, August 27th, at 8 p.m., he’ll have a cameo on “Victorious,” the channel’s highest rated new TV show starring teen actress Victoria Justice. Excellent idea! Let’s expose all the tweens to the most sexist, nastiest gossip blogger out there and make him look “cool.” Keep reading »
