During Kim Kardashian’s Wedding Special, it was not failing to include her groom in her venue choice or that her sister accused said groom of being opportunistic that struck a nerve with me. It was when Rob Kardashian, Kim’s younger brother, got made fun of by his mother Kris for having a fat butt.

I’ve been seeing my guy, “Joe,” for four months, and it’s been great! But last night on the phone, he started talking about a TV personality who I don’t like, and I said “He’s such a fraud and an asshole.” Immediately, Joe goes silent (his reaction when I say something he doesn’t like, I’m noticing) and I asked what the problem was. He said I invalidated his opinion with mine, and that I do it all the time, and it’s getting to the point where he doesn’t know if he can “do this” anymore because I talk to people in such a way that makes them not want to talk to me. He proceeds to explain this about 30 different ways over the course of the next hour, and I started to cry. As I’m crying on the phone, he says, “It’s obvious you’re upset. Maybe you can try to talk to people in such a way that isn’t so aggressive and opinionated.” He followed that up by telling me that his friends have even pointed out how opinionated and dismissive I am, so he knows what he’s saying is valid.

When I was fresh out of college, I worked at an egg donation agency, which paired egg “donors” with potential parents willing to shell out a lot of money for the possibility of having children. At parties, when I was asked what I did for a living, it was inevitable that a group of girls would gather around, asking questions. Everyone had seen those ads on the bus—“$7,000 to donate your eggs!”—and this was 2008, when the economy was digging itself deeper into a recession. In fact, the whole reason I’d taken this gig was because the egg donation business was booming while there was a serious lack of jobs in my field for recent grads. Keep reading »

When I decided to revamp my life according to the principles of Helen Gurley Brown’s Sex and the Single Girl in order to write my memoir Falling For Me, I not only committed to learning to cook, decorate, put myself together and tackle a whole bunch of new activities (ceramics, anyone?) but I also agreed to embrace at least a few of her ideas for meeting men.

11 Celebs Relive Their Worst Dates Of All Time

Celebs—they’re just like us! Despite their good looks and mega bank accounts, they have a rough time on the dating trail too. Take, for example, miss Tori Spelling.

“Back in my 20s when I was on ’90210,’ I was at a club one night and bumped into a guy that I hadn’t seen since high school. At the time, Donna Martin was making crappy boy choices, but I was determined to find The One! … [We went] to the chicest, most expensive and trendiest new restaurant/lounge in Beverly Hills … He announced, slamming down his menu, ‘I’m not very hungry. What do you say we just get drinks?’ … Four rum and Cokes and two hours of a one-way conversation later, I was way too drunk and bored … I was feeling sick. Actually, the room started spinning at this point … I excused myself from the riveting conversation and bolted for the bathroom … I pushed open the door, smiled with victory, and walked right into—the kitchen. The whole kitchen staff looked up at me. I put my hands up to cover my mouth, but I knew it was too late. A waiter rushed over with a massive copper saucepan where I proceeded to vomit the four rum and cokes and the Cliff Bar I had had at 11 a.m. into it. It was Donna Martin prom night all over again.” [Us Magazine]

Wow. That does sound truly horrendous. And also an amazing story. Click on for more celebs on their most terrible dates.
