Friendships make up some of the most treasured relationships in our lives. We share a lot with our closest friends, whether it's in the form of secrets, mutual interests, laughs or lifelong memories. There's no greater feeling than having a unique and unbreakable bond with the person you trust the most where you feel free to be yourself and can speak openly about anything.
ABC news anchor Elizabeth Vargas usually reports on the news, but this week, she is actually in the news. The 20/20 host has checked back into rehab to deal with her ongoing struggles with alcohol and to maintain her sobriety. Anyone who has battled an alcohol addiction knows that it is a daily struggle and that recovery happens every day, all day. There is no start date and no end date when it comes to the recovery process; it's ongoing.
Remember that episode of South Park where they introduced the character Towelie, and walking, talking towel that loves to get high? Apparently Miley Cyrus missed the end of the episode where the character was dubbed "the worst character ever" because she's been emulating Towelie for the last few years. The only difference between Towelie and Miley is that Towelie is a towel and is probably clean, and Miley is not clean. She's the exact opposite of clean, and I mean that in a literal sense—have you seen her tongue?
Christina Aguilera just gave birth to a baby girl, so congratulations are in order. Except for the actual baby. Normally, being born to a famous, super rich family would be great news, but no so for this child. Christina Aguilera is a celebrity, so that means that she has to give her kid a ridiculous name.
Now that the "hookup culture" is on the rise, it's hard to remember the days when people took dating seriously. From one night stands to casual flings, hooking up has pretty much become the norm. I'm not saying that there's anything wrong with having a good time, but I have to admit that I miss getting concrete signs that the guy I'm seeing is genuinely interested without having to turn into Sherlock Holmes just to figure out what he's really thinking. For some reason, there's a major disconnect between our parents' generation of dating and how we approach the game today.
Everyone wants to feel better. Most days it doesn't seem like an easy task. But did you know there are so many simple things that you can easily do everyday in order to elevate your mood. A lot of your mood revolves around your surroundings and your body. If you are in a stressful situation, you are not going to be happy. If your body is not getting what it needs, you are not going to be happy. Sound familiar?
The word ‘selfie’ was coined in Australia in the olden days (2002). A drunk guy posted a blurry image of himself and posted it on social media for all to see. I’m sure there were many selfies before then, but they weren’t documented on the internet, and as we now know, that means they don’t count. Social media brings many pros and cons to this world we live in and we’re not quite sure what merit the selfe brings, but we’re thankful it made its mark!
Avocados are one of the best foods ever for keeping you satiated (all that natural fat so you won't snack as much), adding healthy natural fats to your diet (fat-free is a little 1980s), and power-punching your diet with antioxidants (cancer-fighting food ninjas) And the best part? You can make a ton of different variations in 60 seconds or less. We've gone and made this easy for you. Here's 10 of the fastest super-healthy, crazy-sexy avocado recipes.
Pools, beaches, BBQs, boats, floats, sun, sand, ice cream. I mean, is summer absolutely awesome or what? And now that it's sadly coming to a close, we can't help but wonder if we took advantage of the season to its fullest. Did we spend enough time in the sun? Did we eat all the burgers we could? Did we drink enough lemonade? Should we have stayed on that boat for another hour or three? Did we travel enough? And most importantly: Did we do summer right?!
We see them windin', grindin', up on those poles! A lot of what celebrities sell is sex, so most stars had to be pretty sexually appealing and attractive to achieve (and in some cases sustain) any kind of fame. As a result, it's not entirely surprising that quite a few celebrities stripped for a living before hitting the big time ... and, once more, in some cases, after that.
Look in the mirror. Go ahead, we'll wait. Is your skin dull, full of acne, or lined with wrinkles? The culprit could be lurking in your pantry. Getting beautiful, healthy skin is as easy as cutting back on these five big food offenders. Surprised? We get it. Connecting the food you eat to the skin you have can be tricky because there's usually a delay between nibble and pimple. So you keep eating what you're eating, then spend the next five weeks hiding your cheekbones under a hat, wondering why you can't get the zitfest to quitfest. (Corny, but we had to.)
In 1991, a version of Peter Pan was released, and it was unlike any other. Robin Williams, Dustin Hoffman and Julia Roberts all took on our favorite characters and created one of the classic movies of our generation. Even though we can't bring back Robin Williams, we can honor him by talking about all of his movies that inspired us. Hook was one of those movies that will always remind us of our childhood. It taught us that it's important to grow up, but it's more important to remember that sometimes it's okay to act like a kid.
Summer dress? Check. Wedges? Definitely. Cute purse? Oh, yes. Hair? Uh-oh. While dressing for summer dates is fun and easy (hello, rompers and sundresses!), what you do with your hair is a whole other story ... a difficult one to get through sometimes. Blow dryers. Curling irons. Straightening tools. Ugh. Somewhere down the line, we were wired to think we need to turn up serious heat if we want to look hot on date night. But with the summer in full-force and the humidity at it's worst, the thought of heat styling (and how gross your will room get) is downright dreadful.
Ah, unlikely celebrity friendships. You are what makes the world go round. Nothing makes us happier than when two celebs who should be polar opposites come together in peace and love. Improbable celebrity duos running out and about in the world fill us with joy, and we hope they do for you, too. Sure, soul mates like Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart, with their precious bowler hats and selfies, fill us with love and hope for a bright future, but there's just something magical about two people coming together from completely different ends of the celeb spectrum.
Move over Patti Stanger, Chris Harrison could give your matchmaking skills a run for your money! Kind of. Okay, not really. He just kind of sits there and asks people how they're feeling about the situation (easiest job ever). Last week we covered the shortest relationships that have come out of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette reality shows. Now it's time to see who has lasted the longest and learn who is still together as of this moment (I mean, Nikki has to leave Juan Pablo soon, right?).
