Thanks to fashion magazines, fast food and size-0 actresses, American women live in a crazy funhouse mirror — the more the obesity rate rises, it seems, the tinier and more unrealistic our idealized standards of beauty become. But is it that way all over the world? Globally, for most women, what determines beauty comes from more meaningful influences than Cosmo. We asked her to tell us about five countries who don’t idealize the Keira Knightley physique — though they each have their own set of body issues.
In case you’re not aware, there has been an awful lot of cheatin’ and mistreatin’ going on in the celebrity world lately. And celebrity automobiles are suffering the consequences. This time around, Eddie Cibrian’s wife, Brandi Glanville, slashed the tires of his Harley Davidsons. The woman scorned channeled Carrie Underwood and got revenge on the unfaithful actor by teaching his vehicles a lesson. No word on if LeAnn Rimes favorite bicycle built-for-two was similarly vandalized.
Armed with statistics that prove a growing number of women are watching porn, Oprah Winfrey’s Tuesday show was dedicated to finding out why. (Um, because women enjoy sex too?) One of Oprah’s guests was Jenna Jameson, still the world’s biggest porn star despite the fact that she retired five years ago. Aside from worrying what she will one day tell her twin sons about their mommy’s former career, Jenna told Oprah that she has no regrets about the path she chose.
When considering the hype over a possible glimpse of his nothern-lights-nether-regions in Playgirl, nobody says it better than Bonnie Fuller at her newly re-launched HollywoodLife.com: “What the fig, Levi?”
Agreed! What a let down and what a tease! As previously reported on CelebLove, the whole world was expecting some full-frontal from Levi Johnston. In fact, the nineteen-year-old was crowned “biggest pop-culture-turned-sex star” at the Fleshbot Awards last week; and you’d have to think, for that honor, an assumption of full-frontal was implied.
The Mayans’ prediction that the world would end in 2012 must have been off by a couple of years, because we’ve just received a sure sign that the Apocalypse is now upon us: Jon Gosselin has a sex tape…According to Jon’s former “nanny with benefits,” Stephanie Santoro, “[Bodyguard] Tom told me that Jon was secretly videotaped having sex with a woman in Los Angeles in October, and he’s seen the tape! Tom said people close to Jon put a camera in his hotel room, and paid a girl to flirt with Jon and have sex with him. He also told me he saw Jon snort cocaine on more than one occasion, and that the more Jon got into partying, the more cocaine he used!

Sunday night marked the second-season premiere of VH1’s Tool Academy, where the world’s most patient girlfriends send their lousy lovers to straighten out their acts. Since the trend these days is to make a “celebrity” version of nearly every reality show, we’d like to suggest some famous fellas who should be admitted to the inevitable Celebrity Tool Academy.
Chris Brown, Jude Law, Balthazar Getty, Eddie Cibrian, Jon Gosselin, Spencer Pratt…
Why do single men think that marrying them should be the goal of every woman in the world? Do single women still feel the need to behave in ways that meet the standards and expectations of men? With women filing 65% of the divorces in the U.S., does it make sense to believe that marriage is still a necessity for women, or has it become a rather distasteful option? Husband and wife team Laura and Jay Laffoon are the authors of “The Spark-Igniting Passion, Mystery and Romance in your Marriage and the soon to be released book “He Said She Said – Eight Powerful Phrases That Will Strengthen Your Marriage.” The book discusses four phrases every woman needs to hear from her man and four phrases every man needs to hear from his wife. We’ll look at the purpose for marriage, modern marriages and men’s perspectives and needs in a wife and if those needs are or are not being met by modern American women, as well as how marriage may not be meeting the needs of the modern American woman.

Forget John Mayer, Jennifer Aniston must be romantically involved with someone on the editorial staff of BlackBook magazine. This month, the Hollywood rag ran not one, but two stories featuring leading ladies coming out rather publicly against Angelina Jolie. What gives? She may be married to Brad Pitt, have a gaggle of darling, photogenic children and be one of the most beautiful, successful actresses in the world, but apparently neither Kristen Stewart nor Winona Ryder want to be like, or are jealous of, the luscious-lipped one. Team Jen all the way, aye?
A woman in Philadelphia posted an ad on Craigslist offering “something” in exchange for tickets (for herself and her husband) to the third game of the World Series. Most Philadelphia Phillies fans are rabid and would love to see their team beat the New York Yankees at any cost. Evidently, the police are onto Craigslist shenanigans and caught the young woman in a sting. While she is fighting the prostitution arrest, she received a sweet silver lining: the tickets.
Just when things couldn’t get worse for the Dodgers… In addition to taking a thumping from the Philadelphia Phillies (and ruining what Fox would have called a fantastic LA-NY World Series), the Dodgers ownership may have big problems. Their owner Frank McCourt and wife Jamie are going their separate ways (“some day love will find you”). Unfortunately, the real-estate developer’s largest property is the Los Angeles Dodgers. And word on the street is the Bums (the Dodgers nickname before they moved from Brooklyn to LaLa Land) are worth $722 million (thanks Forbes).
Twitter fiends around the world are answering this and three more burning questions with the most unexpected responses right now. How would you respond?
George Clooney, the coolest man in the world, says that his life of jet planes and blockbuster movies and beautiful women isn’t always completely awesome. We clutch our pearls and shriek our grief.
Romantic comedies are fun to watch and bad to live by. The lessons learned from rom-coms don’t hold up in the real dating world. Here, 4 bad habits learned from these dreamy films.
If you’ve just decided to venture into the world of online dating, read up. We’ll help you filter through the stream of floating heads, “wasssups!” and winks until you find someone worthy of a meet-up. Beware, though. If your newest online crush falls into any of the below then it might be time to throw him back into the online ocean.
Do you believe that anything you want will be yours if you just upgrade your attitude? Do you think that you can attract money, happiness, and love just by rearranging how you look at the world? Do you — like millions of people around the country — love Deepak Chopra, believe in The Secret, and think that the universe gives back to you exactly what you give it? If so, then we suggest you steer clear of Barbara Ehrenreich’s new book, Bright-Sided: How The Relentless Promotion of Positive Thinking Has Undermined America. In it, she argues that our national obsession with positive thinking might actually be making us stupider, and perhaps worse, sadder.
After Katie Holmes married Tom Cruise in 2006, the world watched with baited breath for signs of a brainwashed bride. Relax, folks, the girl has a backbone. Going against her husband’s expressed Scientological wishes, Katie enrolled their three-year-old daughter Suri last week in a Catholic pre-school.
In the world of competitive pining, it’s not an exaggeration to say that I’m a legend. My journey towards greatness began in elementary school, when I nursed a secret crush on the lovely Naomi for five long years, an All Saints School record that remains unbeaten. By the time I got to high school, I was so good at longing lunchroom glances that I was named captain of the varsity unrequited love squad. And I’m sure most of you know all about my Crysman-trophy winning college career. My years as a pro have been marked by great triumphs–the candle I held for a woman with a boyfriend is in the Pining Hall of Fame–but also monumental struggles. To be perfectly honest, it’s hard to pine in New York City.
