Man, oh man. You know it's bad when you'd rather be watching E!'s The Soup mock reality show women. In this case, Bravo's Date My Ex was that kind of second-hand embarrassment you just can't stand to watch, your finger poised on the "last" button on the remote should it get too unbearable. A little backstory: Slade and Jo were originally cast filmed on The Real Housewives of Orange County. I know little about this show. I do know that Jo and Slade were engaged, and she got all sorts of royal treatment. Slade appears to have gobs of money. Or at least gobs of credit. Regardless, Jo decided to break it off, leave the money Slade behind, and pursue a singing career in LA.

An OB-GYN in British Columbia was recently suspended for asking out a patient- an ethical no-no according to the British Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons' annual report, which dually notes its recent review of the 28 sexual misconduct allegations of 24 different physicians in 2007. The report vaguely recounts the telltale signs of inappropriate conduct -as if there is any question whether sexual intercourse may be inappropriate during a typical pelvic exam. Also far from surprising: "sexualized touching" appears on the list.
At a mere 173 square feet, the "Eh'haeusl" or "marriage house" has quite a large reputation. The Bavarian hotel, built in 1728, is a fixture in South Germany's history, according to Reuters. What does 173 square feet get you? Three stories, actually: The first floor is the entryway, the second floor the bathroom, and the third, the bedroom. The structure was built by placing a front, back, and roof between the tiny space between two existing buildings. Voila: a cozy home for two. Actually, the space served many a newlywed, as it's name "marriage house," implies: According to 18th-century law, couples who intended to marry needed to own property to do so. The tiny house was quickly constructed and passed from couple to couple to allow lovebirds a way to the altar.

They exchanged names and allowed the inter-network stalking to begin. A day or so later, my sister burst into laughter at a Facebook message she'd received a video message from the JDate boy. Playing the piano and singing (in a surprisingly good voice, I might add) he began: Here I am writing strange girls messages via video, via song, but only because you looked like someone I'd like to talk to more.
