Christina Aguilera Is Single And Serving Up Grrrl Power

“Every woman has the ability or the drive to do it all and have it all. Men aren’t as strong and capable as we are. We’re machines.”

Christina Aguilera in Redbook, just days after announcing her separation from Jordan Bratman. I’m not sure I totally agree with her statement. It sounds like it could be a passive-aggressive dig at Jordan. What concerns me more is that this may be a foreshadowing of another “Dirrty” phase. Don’t do it, Xtina. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Tel Aviv Bus Line Segregates Women From Men

  • Bus line #322 out of Tel Aviv, Israel, separates the genders by requiring women to sit in the back of the bus while men sit in the front. I am told that private bus lines in the U.S. do this, too. Nevertheless, at least female politician Yael Dayan, chairwoman of the City Council of Tel Aviv, has said, “I will recommend to passengers to boycott the line. It cannot be that women, even religious or ultra-Orthodox, do not understand the meaning of separation in public.” [YNetNews.com]

Would You Attend A Divorce Fair?

Paris, the city of l’amour, saw its first ever Divorce, Separation and Bereavement Fair over the weekend. Attendees learned about solutions for easing the pain of separation, including financial and legal counseling, life coaching, seduction tips, and cellulite removal methods (because that’s the first thing on the mind of a divorcée). They could even hire private detective agencies to discover their partners’ infidelities or hidden financial assets.

“To move on, people have to go through a process of grieving for their past life, for the hopes they had, for the image they had of themselves and of their relationship,” said event organizer Brigitte Gaumet to Reuters. One 46-year-old woman went to the fair looking for ways to cope with her difficult teens now that her divorce is finalized, but, instead, ended up booking a wardrobe makeover with an image consultant. She said she needed to boost her confidence. Here are some of the workshop titles: “How to bounce back,” “How to love yourself in order to bounce back,” and “The role of plastic surgery in reconquering one’s self-image.” I don’t think cosmetic surgery is necessary for building self-confidence, but it is interesting that newly single or soon-to-be single people could find this many resources under one roof. So, if this phenomenon of the divorce fair came to the States, could you see yourself attending? You know, if you were unfortunately (or not-so-unfortunately, depending on the circumstances) going through a separation. [Reuters] Keep reading »
