Are you a sex machine? A bag lady? A perpetual second-place finalist? According to a new book called Ms. Typed, you just might be. Author Dr. Michelle Callahan was on the “Today Show” yesterday morning promoting the book, which offers advice based women’s dating personalities. In this clip, she explains how you can identify your type and what you can do to overcome some of your destructive dating habits. I wonder if there’s a type called “Doesn’t really want to watch televised sports” because, honestly, that’s, like, a recurring issue in ever relationship I’ve ever had.

Bravo’s “Real Housewives” series has traveled across the Hudson to the Garden State for its latest installment, and New Jersey was made for this show. Starting next week, Amelia and her consigliere John DeVore will be liveblogging every episode. Get excited! The newest housewives (Jacqueline, Teresa, Danielle, Dina, and Caroline), their “construction” workers husbands, big hair, big nails, and McMansions decorated like a Medieval Times dinner show won’t let us down. Seeing as though I can’t survive a Tuesday without a h’wife episode, here are the top five moments of Jerz genius so far. Keep reading »
Tyra tackled the issue of black women and girls hating their natural hair and examined the lengths they go to straighten it. I found it extremely sad that a six-year-old girl could hate herself so much at such a young age and has already figured out that she doesn’t fit the beauty ideal. I wonder if/when she’ll start hating her skin color, too. The idea that straight, silky hair is better than kinky hair is nothing new in the black community. In fact, Chris Rock’s “Good Hair” documentary examined it, too. Keep reading »
Anne Hathaway is the celebrity star of Lancôme’s new commercial for Magnifique perfume, but the location is the real star. The ad was filmed at The Box, New York City’s infamous cabaret. A man whispers to Anne, who goes onstage and performs a sensual scarf dance. Compared to what really goes on at The Box, Anne’s tease is tame. Keep reading »
Are you sick of Lady GaGa? We aren’t! Yesterday, the Lady was on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” to perform “Poker Face.” Not only was her intro interesting (she starts off sounding like Amy Winehouse and ends up playing the piano while standing on the bench in heels), but her outfit, once again, was exceptional. Her headgear looked like a solar system model, with Lady GaGa’s head as the sun. She paired that with a Britney Spears circa 2001 patchwork denim jumpsuit. Even if you’re not a fan of Lady GaGa’s, you can’t help but appreciate her elaborate costumes. Keep reading »
Elizabeth Edwards is promoting her new book, Resilience, last week on “Oprah” and then on “The Today Show.” By talking openly about her life, she’s opened herself up to criticism. Daily Beast editor-in-chief Tina Brown and New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd have attacked Edwards’ decision to write about her husband’s affair with Rielle Hunter when everyone was beginning to forget about it. Is Edwards beating a dead horse? Or is this her chance to speak her mind?
On The Daily Beast, Brown writes:
The hazard of confessional books is how fast the world moves on while they’re written. Hearing about that doggy old “misdemeanor”—as she insists on calling her husband’s infidelity with a campaign videographer while he was running for president and she was fighting terminal cancer—just drags us back into the messy aftermath of the election season at a time when we are now busy trying to get on with a collapsing economy and save our own lives.

Welcome to Monday, people. Let’s get this week started right — with a fun-loving video in which armed women shoot inflatable love dolls out of the sky. Now you know what you wish you were doing if you weren’t at work, don’t you? Making a feminist statement by annihilating that which represents the patriarchal objectification of women! Or, you know, maybe it’s just some wacky Japanese TV show. However you want to see it, it looks like a good time to me. Do you think that maybe for the next episode they could send up a squadron of those inflatable Sarah Palin love dolls? That would be a great opportunity for making an awesome political statement, indeed. Keep reading »
If you missed it, here’s President Obama’s speech at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner. He’s very funny. I love the moment when he comments on Michelle’s right to “bare arms,” and she flexes and gives the Prez an adorably flirtatious look. Keep reading »
Justin Timberlake hosted “Saturday Night Live” for the third time this weekend and, as expected, kicked ass. A couple skits stood out: the follow-up to “Dick in a Box,” an ode to moms called “Mother Lover,” which featured guest appearances by Susan Sarandon and Patricia Clarkson, and, after the jump, a hilarious fake commercial for the “Mom Celebrity Translator.” Keep reading »
