I’ve been doing my utmost to debate less, but it’s hard when you’re as naturally opinionated as I am. This is compounded by the fact I come from a highly opinionated gene pool. Our family dinners sometimes spiral into debates. And when I say “sometimes,” I really mean 90 percent of the time.
Usually my mother plays referee, and when I say “referee,” I mean she’ll eventually shout, “Will you all be quiet!” My father plays the contrarian, opposing whatever view I hold. And my sisters may or may not be on my side.
I thought everyone did this — debate over dinner, as an expression of love and then pretend like nothing happened. Apparently not! Dinner is for small talk. So I’ve been trying to reprogram myself whenever I go out, because my opinions can be a bit disruptive. Keep reading »
Oh, man. Watching LeAnn Rimes’ “Entertainment Tonight” interview is like watching a fly trying to get unstuck from fly paper. She just keeps on flapping and flapping even though she’s stuck. It’s painful to watch. Yeah, yeah, yeah, the interview was technically about her her new album Spitfire. But it wasn’t really. With minimal prodding from Nancy O’Dell, LeAnn overshared like crazy, admitting that she and Eddie are worried about cheating on each other, that her body wouldn’t let her stop having the affair (what?) and that she considered taking her own life over it. .

Having an affair is a terrible idea, especially considering that the downsides of getting caught include: ruining your marriage, losing the respect of your children, and in rare cases, being forced to step down as the Director of the CIA. Just ask General David Petraeus who stupidly cheated on his wife with the writer of his gushy tell-all book. Read more…
t was quite the week: a massive hurricane hit the East Coast, a fierce election came to an end and now this: America’s sweetheart CIA director, General David Petraeus, resigns for “personal reasons,” (ahem, cheating on his wife).
Petraeus is known in this country as a hero. As the director of the CIA, Petraeus has been our go-to guy for handling terrorism, our military and global threats. But after an F.B.I. investigation stumbled upon his extramarital affair via his computer, our nation’s superman was encouraged to step down just two days after the president’s reelection. Read more…
Recently, dating and social media site Cheaterville released a survey of its users on the topic of hair color and cheating. The website is a place where you can publicly call out cheating partners — their slogan is “Don’t be the last to know” — and see names of others who have cheated. According to their results, hair color seems to play a role in how likely you are to cheat.
Cheaterville’s survey found that blonde women are more likely to cheat than brunettes, whereas male cheaters are more likely to have brown hair. In fact, 43 percent of female cheaters were blonde (and blondes are, what, 5 percent of the population?), 23 percent were brunette and 11 percent had black hair. As for the men, 40 percent of the unfaithful had brown hair, 23 percent had black hair, 20 percent were blonde and 5 percent were redheads. Read more…
It was only a matter of time before Danny DeVito’s other women started crawling out of the woodwork and the details are pretty gross. A source told Radar Online that the “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” funny man has been cheating on his estranged wife, Rhea Perlman for years and especially liked abusing his power on movie sets. Apparently Danny likes ‘em young and isn’t afraid to pull the ‘ole “I can make you a star kid! But first let me see your boobs!”
“It was kind of pathetic because she was very young and beautiful and obviously just having sex with him in hopes that he’d make her a star,” a source told Radar Online about one of his conquests. “Danny would have hislimo driver drive them all over the city and they’d canoodle in the back before going back to his room together. I felt bad for Rhea, and I felt bad for the girl, too, because she was just a naive kid from Pittsburgh. It was sad to see her pretending to really like him when really it was just because of who he was. And worse, Danny preying on vulnerable young girls like that.” Read more…
This week’s hot Hollywood news is that Robert Pattinsonand Kristen Stewart may be getting back together following her “indiscretion” with director Rupert Sanders.
… and why not? An affair doesn’t have to be the end of a relationship. In fact, it can be a new beginning, bringing a couple closer than ever.
But, there are things to watch out for along the way if you want a healthy, lasting relationship post-infidelity. Here are six pieces of advice for Robert and Kristen and all couples in this situation. Read more…
I just love a happy ending, especially when it involves infidelity and hiding in bathroom stalls.
Former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford is engaged to his mistress after popping the question last week. Sanford famously “went missing” in 2009 while supposedly hiking on the Appalachian trail, but was caught by journalists visiting his Argentinian mistress Maria Belen Chapur, whom he called his “soul mate.” Sanford’s wife, Jenny Sanford, divorced him following the scandal (and penned a tell-all book) and the ex-governor and Chapur began openly dating. As bizarre as their courtship has been, the proposal was just as weird. Keep reading »
After reading about this woman who’s only had affairs with married men, I’ve been obsessed with reading stories about women who have been the other woman. What always strikes me about these articles in many of the women who write about their experiences don’t really see their behavior as problematic. The typical rationalizations are that they’re not the ones who made a commitment to be faithful, or that because the men were the ones who initiated it, they’re absolved of all responsibility. Seeing as how I was staunchly Team Angelina, I definitely have a history of sympathy towards alleged “homewreckers”, but I can’t say I’m totally comfortable with the idea that women who are accomplices to cheaters have done nothing wrong.

Just days after eating his feelings with Jon Stewart over a pint of Ben & Jerry’s, Robert Pattinson hit up “Good Morning America” for some awkward conversation about “the elephant in the room,” as interviewer George Stephanopoulos put it.
“I want my fans to know Cinnamon Toast Crunch has only 30 calories a bowl,” he deflected when asked about the K-Stew cheating drama. Stephanopoulos pushed and pushed but all R-Patz would say was:
“You get into it to do movies. I’ve never been interested in trying to sell my personal life. The reason you go on TV is to promote movies.” Keep reading »
