When real-world guys just don’t do it for us, we love to escape to our favorite TV shows and live vicariously through the ladies with great boyfriends, even with all the baggage and dramz. There’s just something about leading men that makes us go crazy with adoration/jealousy/excitement/OMG-THEY-FINALLY-GOT-TOGETHER!
(Girls, introducing themselves in class.) Girl 1: I'm Brenna. Girl 2: Hi! I'm Margaret, but you can call me Murphy. Girl 1: Huh. How'd you get that nickname? Girl 2: When I was born, my dad said it was Murphy's Law.
Only a recent graduate of the underage club, the majority of my nights out have consisted of shimmying up my skirt to woo a bouncer, or settling for a dive bar in the middle of nowhere. On this particular night, I believe it was a Tuesday - a night when I shouldn’t have been out in the first place since I had class the next morning - the former had not worked out and so we ended up at the latter...
After three entire months of reruns, and crappy MTV-I-need-a-girlfriend-and-a-life reality shows, I am more than ready for the new fall lineup, which starts this week! In addition to our old favorites whose finales left us on the edge of our couches with mouths open and ice cream dripping on our PJs, there are a slew of new shows that are totally worth tuning into this fall.
• DJ AM's death takes a toll on Nicole Richie. • Puppy vs. baby: the battle is on. • Perez Hilton likes little girls. • Now this is a party animal. • Khloe Kardashian's got a new man. • The Hoff does a solo.
It has been a week of reminiscing for me. It seemed as though everywhere I looked there was something that reminded me of the happier days of my childhood.
One of the best parts of going back to school is football season. It doesn't matter if your school's team completely rocks or totally sucks, the experience of a football Saturday is to college as a hungover Saturday is to...well, college.
Everything’s bigger in Texas—especially calorie counts. This Tuesday, Texas State Fair officials announced eight finalists for this year’s Big Tex Choice Awards, a contest for innovative and inevitably artery-clogging food. The list includes heart attack-inducing treats like Texas Fried Pecan Pie, Deep-Fried Peaches & Cream, and—drumroll, please—Deep-Fried Butter.
I'd like to meet the people in this neighborhood who require this friendly reminder.
Imagine that you move into your new dorm room only to find that your internet connection isn’t working. Do you feel a little frustrated, mildly anxious, or totally panicked? If you chose Option C, you might just be an internet addict. Don’t laugh—a growing number of doctors believe that internet addiction is a serious problem.
• No, she's not preggers. They are adopting. • McSteamy or McSnorty? • Fall fashion = lots and lots of brown. • Chris Brown pissed the wrong woman off. • Man tries to breastfeed. • Are Tori and Dean dunzo!?
You know what they say in baseball: “Three strikes, and you’re out!” And now we know the same is true in Project Runway. But more on that later. First let's discuss Tim Gunn in flip flops and Wayfarers.
• Apparently, that's a bad thing. • Things aren't looking good for Lindsay Lohan. • Chase Crawford is all growed up. • Kim Kardashian Tweets in her undies? • Glamour wants more "plus size" ladies. • Shakira's back, bitches.
Our elementary school days were filled with lazy after-school sessions of TV surfing; all those wholesome family shows chock full of life lessons, physical comedy and a happy ending. We were addicted to the Full House family and all the hilarious mishaps of Tim the Tool Man Taylor.
As wonderful as it was, there is one aspect of my childhood that I pray never comes back to haunt me: my wardrobe. Looking back on the trends of our middle school days, I am left sitting on my floor surrounded by piles of reputation-killing photos wondering what the eff we were thinking back then...
We are all living the holier-than-thou lifestyle, obvi. If premarital sex, Gossip Girl story lines and excessive binge drinking is all okay by God, that is. Perhaps these aren’t on the Catholic list of acceptable behavior, but for those of us college students living it up during our undergrad years, I have some good news for you.
• We got your back, Ryan Seacrest! • Meagan still wants a millionaire. And VH1 will oblige. • We're lovin' DKNY's fall collection. • There are lots of songs about balls.... • Is God going gender neutral in the Bible? • Cheap, amazing dorm room DIY.
Dear Internet, Happy (alleged) Birthday! I hope this letter finds you well and spyware free. It’s been 40 years since you first transferred data between computers and look how far you’ve come! I would like to take this time to tell you how much I cherish you, Internet.
When I walk into class every morning in my carefully planned outfit, complete with meticulously-matched accessories, it really disappoints me to see all the boys looking - how shall I put this? - less than stellar. If Cher was not expected to swoon over baggy pants and a backwards cap, than neither am I.
• Their deep v t-shirts are great, but their ads are not. • Madonna passes out on stage. Twice. • This kid is not qualified to give make out tips. • So what happened to DJ AM? • Want to get rid of neck fat? • Yay! Sex and the City 2 has begun!
My sister is getting married and I've had weddings on the brain, so this week I'm dedicating this review to her and doin' the something old, something new, and something blue routine. It doesn't just apply to brides, you know. I didn't borrow any of my music this week (I'm not good at giving back), so I had to leave that one out.
Michelle Duggar gave birth to her 18th child 8 months ago. And now she's expecting her 19th. I've got one word for this madness: holyeffingsh*t.
In case you've been living under a rock for the past 8 months, Chris Brown was arrested and charged for assaulting his former girlfriend, Rihanna. Now, in an interview with old-man interviewer Larry King, Mr. Brown is saying that he can't really believe it happened, as if he magically left his body and wasn't there when the entire brawl went down.
You’re totally over the sweaty frat party scene, and the lines for the bathroom, keg, and beer pong table at house parties is starting to piss you off. You need something new for your weekend festivities. Something like, the bar. Ok, so you’re not 21, but you know as well as anyone that the bar on the corner of campus would let in anyone not still attached to their umbilical cord.
• Someone wants to marry crazy Tyra Banks? • The sexiest ice cream around. • Time to update those leggings, ladies. • Demi Moore is all nature, baby. • When will these people stop having kids?! • Some say cheating is totally OK.
• Audrina Partridge hates Heidi Montags "music" too. • What did Chris Brown have to say this time? • This sorority took hazing a little too seriously. • Megan Fox has a powerful vagina. Or something. • Go ahead - wear white after Labor Day. • These are some misleading signs...
(Older student, talking to high schooler on campus tour.) Student: There's actually a statistic, I think, something like 30 percent of the liquid of water parks is urine. High schooler: Yeah, that sounds pretty reasonable. That's about right. Student: What the f***? No it's not! That would be disgusting!
Remember that line Charlotte said in an episode of Sex and the City? "I've been dating since I was 15! I'm exhausted! Where is he?" Yeah. That's pretty much where I'm at right now. I mean, really, between meeting guys who beer bong in the wrong places and giving my number to rather questionable dudes...
This month, Cosmo’s Guy Report includes some of the usual brilliant suggestions from staffers, as well as expert opinion (read: random dudes interns found on the street) on everything from tatted up ladies to the little signals he's allegedly sending us.
So, Google hates black people now, too? WTF?
They are all over the media and even if you’ve never seen their show, everyone knows who Jon and Kate are thanks to their very public separation and the battle that’s ensued. They lost a battle to Speidi right here on CollegeCandy only a few short months ago. But little did we know then that soon the couple would turn on one another.
Ever since that horrible live birth video they made us watch in sex-ed in 5th grade, I’ve been disinclined to anything baby-related. Heidi Klum may look great pregnant, but there’s nothing pretty about a giant head poking out of a screaming woman’s…yeah.
• And his woman is a hottie. Damn. • This website makes us laugh. Hard. • Mariah Carey looks...totally freaking weird. • The 7 stages of being fat. • Mischa Barton states the obvious. • Europe hates Madonna.
Now that we’re about ready to trade in our gladiator sandals for boots and our tank tops for, well, tank tops with sweaters, I tried to search the web for other denim trends as a follow-up to last week’s post on bleached jeans. What popped up instead was this:
When I was a freshman my sorority whisked my pledge class away to an undisclosed location for a girls-only bonding weekend. We were told nothing about where we were headed; our only instructions were to bring some sweats and a going-out outfit or two. It was only once we were 45 minutes into our drive that we learned where we were going: Ohio State University.
