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 you've got a full-blown raging case of baby fever or practically cry with ecstasy when you tuck your newborn into her crib, it's hard to believe that there are women out there who don't long for the same thing. But just like there are cat people and dog people; city people and country people; rap people and disco (?) people -- there are I-want-a-baby and I-don't-want-a-baby people.
There can be lots of reasons women don't want children. Some do, but feel it wouldn't be responsible given their life situation (lack of funds, lack of family support, lack of partner). Some just plain don't -- even if they've got all of that. But if a woman tells you she doesn't want children, and you want to remain friends with that person, or at least not get a dirty look, or at least not be a wee bit of a jerk, you'll want to avoid saying these 11 things.
It seems like everyone and anyone who is under 30 and remotely attractive has been "rumored" to be considered for the roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. The latest contenders are real life married pair Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively.
Says Latinos Post: "The pair has chemistry off screen, so naturally the romance would translate seamlessly. They already share an intimate relationship, so why not show it off to the world?"
If you're like me, you've got so much hair, so little time. Once there was a time I curled and twisted and sprayed and lacquered. But those days are over! In fact, I wonder how I ever had time for all of that. Now I do as little as possible and still try to appear like I did something. I mean I don't want to look like a bunch of mice made a nest in my locks. But I just don't have an hour in the morning to wash, blowdry, brush, curl, blah blah. So here are some hair tips for women who want their hair to look good without all the fuss.
Everyone loves Ryan Gosling. Right? What's there not to love? The hangdog eyes. The soulful expression. The hot bod. But apparently after screenings of Ryan's new movie Only God Forgives, there is a flat-out Ryan Gosling haterparade going on. Critics are pounding on this movie like a starving monkey pounds on a coconut. The Gos plays a drug-smuggler who runs a boxing club in Thailand. Gos! Shirtless! Sounds good so far. Buuuuut that's about as good as it gets. The reviews seem to be universally bad, and the screening in Cannes was booed. Listen to this review -- it's the worst movie review you'll ever read in your entire life.
A mother of two is being hailed as a hero after confronting one of the men who allegedly viciously butchered a young British soldier in broad daylight on the streets of London. The woman happened to be inside of a bus that stopped in front of the scene and seeing a man on the ground, she got out to see what she could do to help. Ingrid Loyau-Kennett is a former teacher and Brownie leader who knows first aid. At first, it looked like a car accident, as the soldier was crumpled near a smashed car. But it quickly became apparent that there was something much more sinister going on.
