I'm a former Forbes journalist and blogger who has also waxed lyrical for other places, including Marie Claire, The Frisky, The New York Post, and Women on the Fence. For my book, Can't Think Straight, I was on The Today Show, The Joy Behar Show, The Gayle King Show, and others. (But not Hoarders. One can dream.) I like to tell it like it is, almost as much as I like cats. I know a lot about celebrities and nothing about my neighbors.Visit me at my website or blog.
When a man is trying to woo you, are there any sweeter words to hear than "Don't be that stupid douche"? I think not. And Aaron Carter clearly knows the myriad ways into a woman's heart. Granted, this may not be the way, in fact, it's definitely not the way, but who can blame a guy for trying, right? Well, I can. You see, apparently Aaron is trying to win back his ex-girlfriend from a bazillion years ago and he tweeted:
Don't be that stupid douche that loses the love of your life forever.. Like me...
What would you do if your spouse died? Most of us would cry, grieve, gather emotional support, plan the funeral, get on about the business of insurance policies and paperwork, and try our best to go on, not only for any children, but for our friends, family, and ourselves. But some can't even bear the thought of another day without their beloved. Adrian Cross couldn't. Mere hours after he left the hospital where his soul mate, 37-year-old Tammy, died, he reportedly put on one of herpink nightgowns, held a picture of her, lay down on their bed, and committed suicide.
A woman was forced to track down her own rapist-- her father -- after he fled the country following charges that he had been raping his daughter for 10 years, starting when she was 3 years old. As if that's not horrible enough, the woman's own mother helped him escape. Heather Orr's father, Frank Hertel, was facing trial in Arizona when Orr was 18, but days before, he fled to Germany with Orr's mom, Judy, and their son, Heather's brother.
Imagine you are a frisky 70-year-old man who decides to hire an escort for the eveningwhen you're out of town. (Men. Do they ever change?) When the lovely lady of the evening arrives, you notice with a shock that the woman seems very familiar. In fact, she's more than just familiar. You know her very well. She's ... your son's fianceé! Now you've got quite a dilemma on your hands -- do you tell your son what the woman he's about to marry does for a living?
A British man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for plotting to start a "daughters only" incest family with a 13-year-old girl. Luckily, that teen girl didn't really exist. The man's plan was foiled by an undercover agent who pretended to be a father who was willing to sell his teen to the man so he could have daughters with her and begin to abuse them "once the midwife left."
