“The trauma of the whole thing has been humbling, and for the first time, I’m a little bit wobbly … It makes you a more empathetic person, and I think it’s made me a better actress. Weakness is something we don’t like to admit we have. We hold it against people, until we experience it,… READ MORE »

Jennifer Aniston hops on the no-pants train for the July cover of Marie Claire. I find this ironic considering that one of the coverlines placed over her reads, “The Trick To Buying Great Pants.” … READ MORE »

Of all the lady mags, I tend to find the stories in Marie Claire to be the most informative, well-written, and thought-provoking. Celebrity interviews, of course, are a bit of a crapshoot; for every Lady Gaga (who will give amazing, ridiculous quote after amazing, ridiculous quote) there’s a Katie Holmes (who repeats canned answers that… READ MORE »

It’s totally cool that Lea Michele, Dianna Agron and Amber Riley are all sharing the May 2011 cover of Marie Claire and getting their own separate individual covers — for one because it annoys me when Lea Michele hogs all the buzz from “Glee,” but because mainstream women’s mags are not exactly known for putting… READ MORE »

This week’s column was inspired by a recent article on MarieClaire.com entitled “Why Men Prefer Innocent Girls To Bad Girls.”

The other day, some guys and I were chillaxing in my pal Josh’s sweet hot tub doing what guys do which is hang out and be real and we were discussing “innocent” girls versus… READ MORE »

Emma Watson is showing off her new pixie cut in the December issue of Marie Claire. And some are already calling her the “New Twiggy,” while Joan Rivers said she looked like a lesbian (whatever that means) on E!’s “Fashion Police” this weekend. I really like the mature yet fun cut. What do you think? READ MORE »

Rihanna looks gorgeous on the cover of Marie Claire UK. The team of stylists managed to make her bright red hair work with the pink feathers, nails, and makeup. Rihanna also looks amazing in the fashion shots inside the mag and dishes some more about the Chris Brown assault. [MarieClaire.co.uk] … READ MORE »

“It seemed like something someone would say when they’re really drunk at a party with their other hateful friends, but may be not good to write down and put it out for people to look at. … We have this great episode coming up where Molly cancels her subscription to Marie Claire.” — “Mike and… READ MORE »

I have a high threshold for sexist, sizeist, classist, and racist things that people write on the internet because I’ve seen so much of it over the years. But the MarieClaire.com article by Maura Kelly titled “Should ‘Fatties’ Get A Room?” — which we told you about yesterday — was above-and-beyond disgusting. Kelly wrote that… READ MORE »

This morning Sally McGraw of the blog Already Pretty alerted her Twitter followers to an article about plus-size television stars that was posted on MarieClaire.com yesterday. Her initial response, “Seriously, Marie Claire? SERIOUSLY?” was my exact reaction as soon as I clicked the link and read a few sentences … … READ MORE »

There are many names you could call a stay-at-home dad who raises the young’uns while wifey brings home the bacon. “Mr. Mom.” The babysitter. Or, according to Marie Claire magazine, a status symbol — the beta husband of the “alpha mom.”

One stay-at-home dad, however, has a different label he would like you… READ MORE »

Just as inexplicable as the recent obsession over Silly Bandz is the love for YouTube haul vlogs. Intrepid young “reporters” spend hours creating their own videos, where they simply show off their latest purchases, detailing the reasons they love or hate the new products, thanks to the magic of web cams and the… READ MORE »

As though the Canadian Tuxedo weren’t already a terrible choice, Marie Claire has decided that the trampy bikini version is fashionable. Here’s our biggest problem with this cover: people read magazines like Marie Claire for fashion ideas. Are we mere weeks away from an army of denim-swimwear-clad women teetering around on the sand in heels? READ MORE »

We all have friends who act stupid. The one who’s sleeping with her unemployed alcoholic ex again. The one who continues to pick up her mother’s phone calls even though they always end in tears. The one who works for corporate America and still posts nip-slip pics of herself on Facebook. We, the friends, usually… READ MORE »

Marie Claire magazine claims this lovely cover photo of Jessica Simpson features the starlet with no makeup (!) and no retouching at all (!), and while I think this look is so, so much more flattering for J-Simp than her usual tranny-face, I don’t buy for a second she’s sans fards. Even if you don’t… READ MORE »

Maura Kelly has a unique job — she blogs about her dating life for Marie Claire. Her column, “A Year of Living Flirtatiously,” is a frank, humorous, self-deprecating account of her travails on the front lines of dating. The project started when Kelly realized that if she approached finding a man with as much zeal… READ MORE »

Scent is certainly a powerful element in generating attraction from the opposite sex, but when a new study came out this week pointing to Chanel No. 5 as the perfume most likely to seduce a man, we were doubtful. The idea that you could bag a guy with a specific perfume seems far-fetched as it… READ MORE »
