The officials of Wisconsin Memorial Park cemetery in Brookfield, Wisconsin have decided that it's time to expand their business. With five chapels, a reception hall, and kitchen, they've realized that their facilities are suitable for far more than funerals. In fact, they can't imagine a better place to hold a baptism. Or Bar Mitzvah. Or for that matter, a wedding.
You know, when we first heard that Courteney Cox had signed on to play a 40-year-old divorcée in ABC's Cougar Town we thought: "Hm. OK. Sounds a bit tired and generic, but nothing can top that mess Dirt." In case you were reading War and Peace, Dirt was a horrendously written piece of garbage on FX where Cox tramps around like a young, virile Miranda Priestly working at a gossip magazine in L.A. Pretty people in paradise working at a glossy about pretty people in paradise. It sounds impossible to do, but somehow FX found a way to make it unwatchable even on mute. We had the pleasure of viewing a few teaser clips of Cougar Town and unfortunately it appears Courteney has signed onto another lemon. Poor Courteney, desperately in search of another Monica-in-the-rough and unable to find it.
To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of The Cosby Show, we're going to squeeze out ways in which this iconic family seared itself in our memories. Granted, this took some creative brain wrangling. We were a bit younger than Rudy throughout the Cosby's eight-season tenure, which meant for most of it, we were too little to fully appreciate the New Wave, bohemian-leanings of Denise, Baby Boom-esque, working girl stylings of Sondra, and strong, feminist undertones of Clair. But this isn't to say the residue of the family didn't linger in our psyches. While we didn't learn much about sex (The Cosby's were arguably the most wholesome family this side of the Brady's) we did take away some was universal love rules instead.

On Tonight's Millionaire Matchmaker Patti tries to set up a plastic surgeon, who claims that out of all the woman he's dated, "there's never been a face that didn't need something." Imagine having to date this guy! Dr. Robert Nettles is a 34-year-old "cosmetic facial surgeon," and he's super picky. "I think it would be very difficult for a woman to date someone like me, because I know what's wrong with their face and I know what I can do about it," he said. Clip above.
Last night's episode of ABC's "What Would You Do?" featured a woman wants to marry her new boyfriend, a much younger man. The boyfriend tells her friends that he wants to get hitched for the green card, but he asks her them not to tell. What would you do in this situation?
For all of its ridiculous moments*, last night's episode of The Bachelor made us realize one thing: the single parent experience is growing increasingly mainstream. Jason, the bachelor and single dad in question, has 10 remaining women on the show; two of them are single mothers, and all of them are gaga for his divorced self. The latest US census showed single parent homes have held steady at around 9 percent of all households for the past fifteen years. Meanwhile, the increase in popularity of online dating and the prevalance of divorce have made dating with children a common occurrence. In our not-so-distant past, unmarried or divorced parents risked facing judgment from the state, society and religious institutions for their status.
