How To Compromise On A Household Budget

There are necessities, like running water, and then there are "necessities," like HBO and a weekly pedicure. When you're single and supporting only yourself, you have every right to declare keeping your toes in the latest shade of blush a priority. But once you join budgets with your partner, it's important that you both agree on which expenses qualify as non-negotiable.

The Number One Thing We Get Wrong About Men

As women, we can spin ourselves into tizzies trying to embody what we think men want. There are entire segments of the media (ahem) dedicated to the topic. But guess what? The answer isn't so complicated as we often think. It's no surprise that men like beautiful, smart women. You say she's into sports? Even better. Men love looking at these women, talking to them, dating them. But—in terms of long-term love—it's not enough to be a bombshell, to be hilarious, to be a female version of a man.

Bachelor Pad: Where Brains Go To Die

Never have I yelled at a television more than on last night's parade of idiocy that is Bachelor Pad. Though it started off a tad slow with the requisite yelling, making out and hot tubbing that is to be expected in a mansion full of overly emotional cry babies (and I'm not even talking about the ladies), it quickly revved up to a full-blown drama fest. First of all, it's only episode two. Yet everyone is talking like they've been trapped in that mansion for ten years. This isn't so bad if you're a Cool Kid,  an Insider—such as Elizabeth, Tenley and Natalie—and the Testosterone Triplets (Kiptyn, Dave, Kovacs) who love them.

Roseanne star, Sara Gilbert has new talk show on CBS

5 Reasons We'd Take Sara Gilbert's Love Advice

Sara Gilbert (a.k.a. Darlene from Roseanne), is all grown up and co-hosting a new daytime talk show with Sharon Osbourne, Leah Remini, Holly Robinson Peete, Marissa Jaret Winokur and Julie Chen, starting this fall. We're told the panel of six celebrity moms will discuss and debate (to put it ever so politely), issues relating to motherhood and parenting. (Um, and yes, the premise does sound strikingly similar to Barbara Walters' The View.) But back to our point. The show may be about mommyhood, but we all know that whenever a group of women get together, it doesn't take long before men, women, relationships, sex—you know, the good stuff—comes up.
