New Year’s Eve is completely overwrought with expectation, isn’t it? Will your party be hip-hop-video-caliber awesome? Who are you going to kiss? And most importantly, are you wearing enough sequins?
It’s enough to make a girl throw up her hands and stay in watching re-runs of “Breaking Bad.”
Never fear, friend. More »

If a movie was to be based on my love life, it would be called “New Year’s Eve.” (Or it would be called that if there wasn’t already a movie coming out with that very name and, in fact, sponsoring this very post.) But seriously, if I actually had the patience to sit down and… More »
You know how, once in a while, someone asks you your age and your mind goes blank, leaving you sounding like a total idiot tripping over the word, “Uhhhhh…” That’s how I feel about my magic number. Confession: I have no idea how many men I’ve had sex with over the years. I cashed in… More »
One New Year’s Eve, back in college, I literally had to duck to avoid the kid who lived down the hall (who looked like Jesus and smelled like he hadn’t bathed since then) from drunkenly planting a kiss on me at midnight. He had been dancing with his pet snake for hours before he tried… More »
Most people will bring in 2011 by watching the New Year’s countdown in Times Square, going to church or attending a party. Kissing someone hot and sexy, whether a current flame or a potential new one, is a high priority at the stroke of midnight. But there are other, lesser-known traditions. If 2010 wasn’t that… More »
Getting laid on New Year’s Eve is like shooting fish in a barrel … a barrel full of alcohol. So, if you want to put the lick in liquor this New Year’s Eve, here are our tips for getting frisky … … More »
I know I was devastated when I learned that Times Square put the kibosh on Snooki’s 2011 “hamster ball” drop stunt. Yes, MTV had planned to put her in some kind of pink, glittering ball and ring in the New Year by lowering her down into the center of the action. Apparently, the bitches in… More »
A few of us have shared our plans for New Year’s Eve, just a couple nights away (I’m wearing this, and having a small dinner with a few friends and then hitting our favorite, out-of-the way dive bar). Now it’s your turn to share your plans. Whether you’re staying in, heading to a cozy cabin… More »
I’m still contemplating my New Year’s resolutions. I could make a list and make it boring, the theme being fix all the stuff I could do better. You know, like save more, scrub the toilet with greater vigor, and practice yoga daily. Or I could focus on all the dreams I’d like to accomplish –… More »
Make it stop—I have an image in my head of Gwyneth Paltrow and hubby Chris Martin of Coldplay on a stage, doing a mash-up of “Viva La Vida” and “Eff You” for screaming fans. Rumor has it that the two will be performing together, on New Year’s Eve no less, at the Cosmopolitan in Las… More »
Do you know anyone who keeps their New Year’s resolutions? Or even remembers them after January 15? I sure don’t. Most of us vow to lose weight, quit drinking, or cut up those credit cards. But some of us make relationship-related resolutions, and that’s what we’re here to talk about. After the jump are four… More »
Have a great time partying it up this New Year’s Eve. You won’t see me there.
Instead of getting wildly drunk and making out with a random stranger, I’m going to do what I’ve done for the last four years: I’m skipping New Year’s.
There will be no wild parties with… More »
Last night, while out to dinner with friends, my phone rang—a rare occurrence in a world where phones are amazing for organizing schedules and arranging text messages into adorable dialogue bubbles, but aren’t so hot at providing a clear pathway for two people to talk. I recognized the area code immediately, though I had deleted… More »
I’ve had a few one-night stands in my life. Don’t look so surprised! But I have never had a one-night stand on New Year’s Eve, which, according to a study conducted by “intimacy” products manufacturer Wet (creative naming!), is the night the majority of women would have one. According to the study, 33 percent of… More »
“I can’t do any celebrities. I need normal folks. I’m officially done [with Hollywood guys]. It was on my bucket list. Maybe I can check that one off my list. I don’t like the red carpet scene. I like to stay at home and watch movies. I’ll just take a nice guy.”
—Jenny McCarthy tells… More »

MTV has found its magic ingredient to stay relevant in a post music video world—”Jersey Shore.” And thus, the cast of the addictively sleazy show will be front and center at 2010’s MTV New Year’s Eve Bash. The special has lined up a series of “Shore” stunts to get viewers tuning in. The biggest and… More »
I’m in school in the UK and my wonderful boyfriend is in school in Michigan. I’m coming to stay with him for a couple weeks over New Year’s (one week in the middle, when he’s in classes, I’ll go to see my parents in NC), but there’s a problem: he wants to go to NYC… More »
