Tony Romo Is Wrong About Wife’s Response To Marriage Proposal

Ever since he seemed to string ex-gf Jessica Simpson along, I’ve thought Dallas Cowboys player Tony Romo was kind of a schmoe. But now that’s all water under the bridge, and he’s happily married to Candice Crawford. I guess there are a handful of people out there (in Texas, most likely) who are really intrigued by his relationship with his now-wife, because he recently spilled to local Dallas news about the proposal. He admitted he was “a little nervous,” but then, “You see her start to cry, and you know you made a great decision.”

Hmmm. Let me get this straight: He thinks the fact that she bawled when he said, “Will you marry me?” means he was wise to propose? Huh?? I don’t see how the two add up.

Don’t get me wrong — I have nothing against women who end up crying when their guy (or gal) gets down on one knee. Read more… Keep reading »

M.A.C. Teaches How to Get Fuller Lips Fast


This M.A.C. video tutorial showed up in my inbox this morning and I’m loving it.

It’s a quick, easy way to make it look like you have the fullest, most luscious lips in town — and you probably already have the products to do the job in your makeup drawer. Love it!

My favorite secret is the one about highlighting the cupid’s bow of your lip with a cream base. I would probably use a bit of undereye concealer there, which would be just a tiny bit lighter than your normal skin tone. Read more… Keep reading »

Breastfeeding Mom Harassed At Public Pool Despite Topless Law

In Norwalk, Ohio, Chrissy Houtz had a stranger take a picture of her while she was nursing her newborn son at the city pool, and they passed it around like a “wanted poster.” She was harassed and told to stop, but after speaking with Ken Leber, the Norwalk Parks and Recreation Superintendent, who promised to retrain employees to uphold Ohio state law which protects her rights, she thought she could go back to the pool and nurse in peace.

She was wrong.

Again, Houtz breastfed her now 1-year-old son Moses at the pool and, again, was harassed. Several families apparently complained, saying it was “disgusting.” Funny enough, Ohio law not only allows breastfeeding wherever the mom is allowed with the baby, but they’ve got a law which you would think would make this topic totally moot.

They allow women to be topless anywhere men can be. Read more… Keep reading »

Casey Anthony’s First Interview: Don’t Lie, You Know You’ll Watch

And so it begins, the frenzied media wars to get the first Casey Anthony television interview. The race to get Casey’s story is so brutal, in fact, that it involves lies, shady deals, cover-ups, and loads of speculation. But Casey’s totally used to all that.

One freelance TV producer Al Taylor already claimed he made a $1 million deal for the first interview. However, Jose Baez, Anthony’s lawyer, denied this claim — from his, eh em, NBC-funded hotel room in NYC, where he’s said to be holed up playing negotiator in the battle of the big TV networks, including NBC, ABC, and CBS, who all want that first interview.

Yep, all your favorite networks are competing to make Casey Anthony rich. While networks say they don’t pay for interviews, there is apparently a heap of money in offering to license photos and other material that can pay big bucks. Gross, right? This whole American way of making undeserved people rich in America is so disgusting, but it’s no one’s fault but our own. Read more… Keep reading »

Miranda Kerr Should Keep Labor Horror To Herself

Labor already has a terrible reputation, so when Miranda Kerr said her natural, drug-free birth was so painful, she thought she was going to die, most people probably were not terribly surprised. And while I am sure it was intense (because duh), it does not do women any good to hear all the time how awful labor is.

It is not just to spare pregnant women, either. Our culture as a whole seems to have this idea that labor has to be terrible. We all have to curse and yell and scream and cry and eventually, even those of us who prepared for and planned a drug-free birth, will beg for the epidural.

It is simply not true. Now, I am well aware that I had textbook simple pregnancies and extremely easy labors, which makes me unable to comment on medical intervention. Certainly, when it is needed, it is wonderful. The point is, it is not always needed. And labor is not always a screaming mess of pain. Read more… Keep reading »

Gwyneth Paltrow: Food Snob Or Wannabe Crack Smoker?

Oh Gwyneth Paltrow, you silly fishmongering crack-smoking goop. You so crazy! In case you haven’t heard Gwynnie’s latest advice on how to live a fabulous, toxin-free existence, Her Paltrowness recently announced that she’d rather smoke crack than eat cheese from a can. Well, duh. Who wouldn’t?

Personally, I love that Gwyneth said she prefers crack to Cheez Whiz. Everybody’s pointing to this latest comment as further proof of Paltrow’s warped sense of reality, one where even mere commoners such as ourselves have access to kiddie couturiers and private macrobiotic chefs, but I disagree!
