Dear Wendy: “I’m Having A Quarter-Life Crisis”

I graduated from college earlier this year and like so many bright-eyed 20-somethings, I believed I was about to start on a grand Real World Adventure. Four months post-graduation, in the worst employment market since the Great Depression, my world view has dulled considerably. I’m working (for pay) and interning (for “work experience”), and with student loan payments starting soon, I gave up my apartment to move back home. My social circle, which was sizable as an undergrad, has taken repeated blows — my best friend just started med school, four others moved out of state (or out of country) for jobs, and the ones who are still around have (understandably) fallen in step with work friends or are still in school. I feel disconnected and lost, like everyone’s moving forward with their lives and I’m stuck in place. I’ve joined dating sites and sports leagues in an attempt to meet more people my age, but nothing seems to click. My mom keeps assuring me that when I get a job everything will fall into place and my Grand Adventure will begin. In the meantime, how do I regain my sanity and my social life? — Real World Weary

Who Will Make The First 3-D Porn?

We all knew it was coming. The moment we saw the fusing of the blue tentacles in “Avatar,” it seemed pretty obvious that, someday, someone was going to make a 3-D porno. But evidently, three such films are in the works and are racing to be the first to make it to the big screen. First, there’s a director in Hong Kong filming a skin flick called “3-D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy,” a $3.2 million project due to be out next May. And then there’s Italian director Tinto Brass, who wants to remake the 1979 orgy “Caligula” using new 3-D technology. And then there’s Hustler, which has evidently been inspired by “Avatar,” too. The porn magazine is making a spoof of the movie, only with lots of boning. What do we think—cool or scary? Keep reading »

We Could Never Justify Spending That Much On …

It’s one thing to save up for what you might call an “investment piece” like a great winter coat, a power handbag, or the perfect LBD you’ll wear for the rest of your life. However, we can’t figure out why some people would spend the following amounts on these items … click through to see what we’re talking about. Do you agree? What do you think is absolutely the stupidest thing you could spend a lot of money on?

$20: Maybe if you were just dying to own something with a Chanel logo on it, you’d buy these makeup wipes. But we believe your local drugstore sells the same thing for about $2.99.

30 Things I Love About Myself

In honor of Love Yourself Week, each day a Frisky staffer will share 30 things she loves about herself — and we encourage the rest of you to do the same in the comments!

Ask me if I have good self-esteem and the answer is “yes.” But ask me to explain the reasons why I love myself? It’s hard. I gave it my best shot … and I hope you’ll all do the same (about yourselves, not me) in the comments! Keep reading »

“Glee” versus “Modern Family”: The Emmy Ad Showdown

Now, I love “Glee.” I also love “Modern Family.” So I’m kind of glad I am not part of the committee that’ll have to vote on which show wins the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy. Both shows have put together very funny ads in Hollywood Reporter. Keep reading »

Quotable: Beyonce Uses The “F-Word”

“I think I am a feminist in a way. It’s not something I consciously decided I was going to be; perhaps it’s because I grew up in a singing group [Destiny's Child] with other women, and that was so helpful to me. It kept me out of so much trouble and out of bad relationships. My friendships with my girls are just so much a part of me that there are things I am never going to do that would upset that bond. I never want to betray that friendship because I love being a woman and I love being a friend to other women. I think we learn a lot from our female friends – female friendship is very, very important. It’s good to support each other, and I do try to put that message in my music.”

Beyoncé isn’t afraid to use the f-word! Not that I’m surprised to hear this from the pop star who brought us “Independent Woman,” “Single Ladies,” and “Bills, Bills, Bills” [CORRECTION: Oops! I mixed up the lyrics of "Independent Woman" and "Bills, Bills, Bills." Yeah, that last one is not very feminist at all!]. [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
