“Bachelor Pad” Looks Trash-tastic


There’s nothing as relaxing as kicking back on a Monday night and letting the mindless optimism of “The Bachelorette” wash over you. I’d gotten so used to Monday nights with Ali and Roberto, and was a little worried about going through withdrawal now that the show is over. But luckily, I won’t have to. This Monday brings the premiere of a brand-new show, “Bachelor Pad,” which is kind of like “The Bachelor” meets “The Real World.” Meaning, it’s way trashier. The concept: your favorite and most hated contestants live together in a house to compete for love and money. Hookups and back-stabbings abound. Sounds like television gold to me. Will you be watching? I’m pretty sure Amelia will be. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend’s Kids Get On My Nerves”

I’ve been with my boyfriend now for four years and I love being with him; we get a long very well, especially considering our 20-year age difference. My problem lies in the fact that he has two children (12 and 9) who I love as if they were my own. They are living with us for the summer and MAN are they getting on my nerves. I feel like I have no space, all my stuff is moved around, no food is ever in the fridge and worst of all, all they want to do is play with me! I mean it’s great that they love me and accept me in their lives and all but I’m starting to resent them. Usually, I spend most of my time trying to make them happy, but now that they are here all the time I want to scream. Also, it puts a strain on my relationship with my boyfriend because he’s so easy-going with them that I feel like the bad guy all the time. My biggest dilemma with this situation is I thought I had always wanted a baby of my own, especially after meeting them. But now my boyfriend keeps bringing up the fact that maybe I’m not the right person to have kids if I complain about them. I’m so torn! I have even considered breaking up with him — despite thinking I’d marry him — just because of the this kid issue. I feel like I just can’t trust myself! — Parent Trap

What’s Your Favorite Song To Work Out To?

As I’m sure you’ve noticed in the two “Fearlessly Fit” videos I’ve done so far, I’m not what you’d call a fitness buff. I get my yoga on (sometimes) and I’m definitely game to try new types of fitness activities — like hip-hop dance or anti-gravity yoga — but strenuous physical activity that involves, um, clothing has never really been my thing. However, when it does come to those activities that do get my heart racing, I need music to pump me up and push me to continue on past the point of wanting to throw in the towel and eat a cheeseburger. For example, when I decide I’m going for a run I need some seriously catchy pop music on my iPod to motivate me and help me keep my pace. The song that does it for me every time? Britney Spears’ “Gimme More.” What can I say? I don’t want to disappoint the woman who giggles and says, “It’s Britney, bitch.”

So tell me — what songs get you pumped up and motivated while working out? I’ll make a playlist of all your suggestions next week! [Photo: iStockphoto] Keep reading »

Quotable: Joe Manganiello Gets In Touch With His Inner Animal

“I feel like I’ve been pretending I was a werewolf since I was a little kid. But it takes work. It’s about dialect work… I’m not going to lie–it’s about going to the gym. It’s a lot about letting it all go, remembering when you were a crazy primal kid running around and screaming. I wouldn’t tell anyone to study werewolves–I studied wolves, how they moved, their tendencies and sensibilities.”

Joe Manganiello chows down on some pizza and talks about playing sexy werewolf Alcide on “True Blood” in the latest issue of Interview. [Interview via Just Jared] Keep reading »
