According to a study published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior, the length of time a man looks at a women the first time they meet can be an indicator of how he feels about her. So, next time you go on a blind date, bring a stopwatch. The study, which tracked eye movements of 115 students as they spoke to actors and actresses, found that men looked into women’s eyes for an average of 8.2 seconds if they thought they were beautiful. When they rated a woman as less attractive, they only looked at her for around 4.5 seconds. Now, I’m not sure if you’re aware, but eight is a lot of seconds to be looking at someone. If a random guy in a bar looked at me for that long, I might think he had a staring problem. To give you an idea of how long a guy will look at you when he thinks you’re hot, listen to this clip from the Britney Spears song “If U Seek Amy,” which is eight seconds long. [Telegraph]

Now that Playgirl is resting in peace, all we have is this awesome aerobics vid, “Hunkercize.” The buff babes of Playgirl want to pump (clap!) you up! The vintage aerobics vid is packed with short shorts, shady ‘staches, and insidious winks that remind us that Playgirl was never for women and that gay dudes are perfect workout pals. [Everything Is Terrible] Keep reading »
So the bitch factor has been turned WAY up with the addition of socialite and “fabulousity-crowd” lover Kelly Killoren Bensimon on “The Real Housewives of New York City.” Thanks to last night’s episode, we already know annoying/insecure Bethenny hates her guts, but the mannish model/equestrian managed to make the rest of the “Housewives” think she’s a total tool by refusing to participate in Jill’s charity. Is Kelly trying to steal C(o)untess LuAnn’s crown or is she just being given a hard time because she’s the newbie on the show? Perhaps a little digging will reveal the real Kelly….

This morning while I was getting ready for work, my heart was warmed by a story on the “Today” show. Unlike the divorce battle in Long Island, NY, over whether a woman would be allowed to keep her estranged husband’s donated kidney, organ donation brought Jim and Bernadette Tobin back together. The two married young and divorced after 27 years. When he needed a kidney transplant several years later, Bernadette stepped up and donated one of her kidneys. While they were both healing from their surgeries, Jim and Bernadette fell back in love! “She saved my life and changed my life forever, giving me the gift of life,” Jim said. The two were remarried last Sunday. [Today] Keep reading »
At this point, I love “Gossip Girl” the way I once loved a certain young lad back in my high school days. It’s almost like reliving that entire romance, in fact. Though I loved the show once with a passion beyond compare, it no longer satisfies me. I talk trash about it behind its back. But at the same time, I just can’t let go, because the good parts (the soundtrack, Ed Westwick’s face) are still so good. On some level, I’m still in love.
With that in mind, let’s enter the spectacular zone of white privilege and excess that is this thrice-baked trifle of a guilty pleasure… Keep reading »
We feel a little dirty watching so much gyrating this early in the morning, but what better way to wake up than by seeing Ciara and Justin Timberlake shake it in the video for “Love Sex Magic”? What do you think of Ciara’s style? We think she’s copping Beyonce’s look a little with all those unitards. Keep reading »
I tuned in at 3pm sharp this Saturday to catch the debut of the NEW “House Of Style,” quite possibly my favorite relic of MTV’s days of yore. As Annika wrote in her preview post, we were worried that this new incarnation would be totally juvenile (not always a good thing!) thanks to a partnership with Teen Vogue. And how would Bar Rafaeli, Leonardo DiCaprio girlfriend and Israeli supermodel, stack up against past hosts Cindy Crawford, Shalom Harlow, Amber Valetta, and Rebecca Romijn? SPOILER: She sucked!

It seems the Prop 8 folks have gotten to Portia de Rossi. Ellen DeGeneres’ wife has rethought her position on gay marriage and decided to do some apologizing on Jimmy Kimmel’s talk show. Check it out above! Keep reading »
Slate has uncovered shocking evidence that Britney Spears’ songwriting abilities are maybe, just a tad, unoriginal. Her most recent single, “If U Seek Amy,” is a play on words that, when said quickly, spell out, um, something dirty. Best of all, the way in which the phrase is used in the song, doesn’t really make sense. “All the boys and all the girls are begging to if u seek Amy.” However, previous uses of naughty wordplay like this are everywhere and no doubt inspired Brit. “If You See Kay,” apparently, has been a song put out by a bunch of artists, including one who admitted that he got the reference from James Joyce, who wrote in Ulysses:
If you see kay
Tell him he may
See you in tea
Tell him from me.

“The Millionarie Matchmaker” is on tonight at 10 p.m. EST on Bravo, and we’ve got a clip from the show. It’s pretty easy to believe that men go into the dating game with unrealistic expectations about who they want to get with. In real life, and on this show, guys lust after actresses and models. For the most part, women seem to be more realistic about potential parters’ looks, but we can’t completely generalize on that point because there are exceptions. Case in point: the female millionaire (millionairess?) on tonight’s episode. This lady is seriously delusional and doesn’t seem like a nice person. Plus, she makes fun of our beloved Patti Stanger’s bangs! Will Patti take her on as a client? We hope not — she doesn’t deserve help with her love life. After the jump, the hideous face this superficial woman makes while saying she wouldn’t want to wake up next to a guy who has any sort of belly. Keep reading »
