Woman Sues Ex For Cancelled Wedding

Woman Sues Ex For Cancelled Wedding

As the intro sentence to a new Tango article, "The New Breakup," states: Let's face it: Breakups suck. But let's say you get engaged and move away from your life, your friends, your job for your future husband. And then he calls off the wedding. That sucks a little bit more. That's exactly what happened to RoseMary Shell, who appeared on the Today Show to tell her story. It really is a story of triumph.

Thongs For Abstinence

Thongs For Abstinence

When a promise ring is not enough, abstinence-promoting underwear might do the trick. Printed with slogans such as "True Love Will Wait" and "Earn your right to wear white: Abstain.", it's hard to tell if these $11 white cotton thongs are marketed facetiously or seriously as a last-ditch effort to preserve one's virginity. I can't imagine parents of abstinence-abiding teens would be excited to buy an undergarment that only exists thanks to form-fitting clothing, let alone one meant to be read by a second party. Regardless, we'll call the undies both inspiring and clever. My favorite pair? An image of cherries above the words "Iron Hymen." That oft-forgotten membrane sure is getting its share of the limelight this year.

'Hose for Bros

'Hose for Bros

A site called E-MANcipate has undertaken the noble goal of spreading the joys of pantyhose to the Y-chromosomed sex. Now, I love me some cross-dressers, but I can't help but giggling at e-MANcipate and their conviction that they can show off their legs "in a manly way" with kashmir, haut and schwarz colored stockings.

Ever Want to Just Leave A Message?

Ever Want to Just Leave A Message?

Communication response times have come far from the days of smoke signals. We can send and receive messages in the blink of an eye via text, phone, e-mail, Facebook, MySpace, instant message, the list goes on. This is a good thing. Except when it's not. For example, on the occasions when you really need to return a bad blind date's or your mother-in-law's phone call. It would be rude not to, but it's late, your throat is bone dry from talking all day and there's a Scrubs rerun on TV. A text might come off as too curt, an e-mail as inviting of further dialogue. Wouldn't it be nice to just leave a voicemail, thereby putting the ball back into your recipient's court?

Study: Older Women Less Happy

Study: Older Women Less Happy

After age 34 women are less likely than men to be married, and are more depressed. It shouldn't be hard for women in their late 30s to marry, but anecdotal evidence, and now an actual study, says it is.

Twins Marry, Make More Twins

Twins Marry, Make More Twins

The Telegraph recently reported on an interesting family: A set of identical twin women met and married a set of identical twin men. Then one of the couples produced a set of twin boys. We'd draw a diagram if we had the Web capability. One of the twin couples (Note: We could easily use each of their names from this point forward, but is there really any point? It'll just be confusing.) met in 1998 at Twin Day, the annual Twin festival. (The other twins sure got lucky: Their siblings totally hooked them up. Or they're just lazy.)

A Woman Scorned

A Woman Scorned

Mental Floss has a juicy top-five list up: "Five Scorned Women Get Their Revenge." But it's a chin-scratcher! Yeah, yeah, we understand Mental Floss is all smart and stuff, but we're unfamiliar with almost all of historical these tales of revenge. Boudicca? Lady Mao? The Chochiti tribe? I'm sorry, who? Maybe Mental Floss had no choice but to dip way far back into both history and obscurity. Despite the adage "hell hath no fury like a woman scorned," there aren't a lot of contemporary examples -- other than the extreme ones, like Lorena Bobbitt and Ivana "Don't get mad, get everything" Trump. But damned if I'm ever going to let a member of the Trump family serve as an example for anything. (I, for one, almost stuff the contents of a takeout sushi dinner in ex's dresser drawers after being dumped -- but emphasis on the almost!)

Botox Bridesmaids

Botox Bridesmaids

Cosmetic fixer-uppers like Botox, for wrinkles, and Restylane, to plump up lips a la Jessica Simpson, are a new bridezilla mandate, says the New York Times.
