At The Boys’ Club: The Top 10 Reasons To Stay Facebook Friends With Your Ex

Over at Asylum, the dudes are waxing on a topic we’ve covered quite a bit here at The Frisky — whether or not you should stay Facebook friends with an ex. So what’s the dude perspective? They’ve come up with 10 reasons why you should keep the lines of communication open, at least on the social networking site:

When your girlfriend gives you the dreaded “Let’s just be friends”-speech, don’t overreact. Many guys, in a fit of anger, would proceed to burn every other bridge linking he and his newly minted ex, including deleting her from his list of friends on Facebook. This course of action is a mistake. Put on your “Bruce Willis”-face and remember these 10 reasons for keeping up cyber-appearances. Whether or not you take these directives seriously is, of course, entirely up to you.

Snooki Steals The “Jersey Shore” Season 2 Premiere

Jersey Shore” is back bitches! Here’s the Cliff’s Notes: People are road trippin’ to Miami, Angelina is trying to show her slutty side, Sammi and Ronnie are “single” but continue to fight,The Situation and Pauly D are still egomaniacs, J-WoWW looks like a porn star, Vinny is holding out for quality chicks to bang, and naturally Obama implemented the tanning tax just to spite them all. But can we talk about how I fell in love with Snooki all over again? Like when she said that “eating fried pickles was a life-changing experience.” I couldn’t agree more. Frickles (fried + pickles) just so happens to be my favorite food. BuzzFeed pulled together some of the best moments from last night’s premiere, and all of mine involved Snooki, the little show-stopper. More of my favorite Snooki quotes after the jump.

Today’s Lady News: TV Host Called A “Big Lesbian” By Newspaper Critic

  • Ladies, why do you gotta be all oversensitive and stuff? A critic for London’s Sunday Times newspaper wrote a recent piece that stated “Britain By Bike” host/sports journalist Clare Balding looks like a big lesbian. When people objected to that characterization, critic AA Gill responded by writing, “Some time ago, I made a cheap and frankly unnecessary joke about Clare Balding looking like a big lesbian. And afterwards somebody tugged my sleeve to point out that she is a big lesbian, and I felt foolish and guilty. So I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize. Sorry. Now back to the dyke on a bike …” After further complaints about Gill’s obnoxiousness and not-really apology, editor John Witherow wrote, “In my view some members of the gay community need to stop regarding themselves as having a special victim status and behave like any other sensible group that is accepted by society.” So there you have it: anyone who objects to being called a “big lesbian” in the newspaper just isn’t being sensible!

Win This! TRIA Laser Hair Removal System

For as long as I’ve noticed that I have body hair — since 7th grade? — I’ve been a shaver. I mean, I wax my upper lip (deal with it dudes, every girl has a ‘stache) and my eyebrows, but the rest of me I shave. And it is annoying. Recently I have been considering my other hair removal options as I have no plans in getting in touch with my inner hippie and letting it all grow out. There’s waxing, sure, but who wants to let their leg hair grow out to a length where it could reasonably be yanked out? It’s summer after all. There’s also laser hair removal, which I’ve always considered to be the Bill Gates of hair removal options because it’s so expensive and requires a ton of in-office visits. Until now. TRIA’s Hair Removal System is the first and only FDA-cleared at-home laser that gives permanent results, eliminating the need for shaving or waxing. Now, I’m going to be testing out this bad boy for a future Beauty Test Drive, but so far, it’s easy to use. Also worth noting: TRIA is not safe for use by people with medium/dark skin tones, so keep that in mind. TRIA’s Hair Removal System isn’t cheap, but compared to how much you’d fork over for costly in-office treatments, if you’re desperate to be hair and shaving-cut free, it’s a steal. [$495, TRIA Beauty]

WIN THIS! We’re giving away TRIA’s Hair Removal System to ONE lucky person, but you have to work if you want it. In the comments, tell us your most disastrous hair removal story by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, August 5, 2010. We’ll pick our favorite response and announce the winner Friday, August 6. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. Good luck!
