Don’t get too excited if your significant other starts losing weight.. it’s probably not for you.
According to a new study when people in steady relationships start to actively work out or diet to fight flab, it’s because they are preparing to drop their other half.
Sociologists claim there’s no pressure to look attractive if you’ve already snagged your better half.. and as such you apparently start to let yourself go and feel less inclined to worry about things like expanding waistlines.
So if your boyfriend or girlfriend starts to develop an insane obsession with the gym or dieting, be afraid. It’s most likely in preparation to join a competitive dating market where people like to look as thin and attractive as possible.
What do you think about this? I’ve known people do this very thing.. but then I also know people who lose weight for themselves to be healthier. And then what about the couples that lose weight together?
Put down that freezer burned box of Thin Mints you’ve been hoarding in your freezer and prepare yourself for possibly the greatest news you’ll hear all day.
Lip Smackers has just created a line of Girl Scout Cookie Flavored lip balms..
That’s right. The gangs all there: Thin Mint, Shortbread, Peanut Butter Sandwich, Caramel Delights, and the Peanut Butter Pattie ones I refuse to call Tagalongs.
These lip balms combine the taste and smell of the cookies, without the extra pounds and guilt you feel after downing a box of Caramel Delights in one sitting. The only downside is developing a nasty habit of licking your lips, but thankfully the good people at Lip Smackers accounted for this and made each balm hydrating. Buy them individually or get all five in a set for $5 at Wal-Mart and Claire’s stores. Come 2012 they’ll be available in the liquid lip gloss version too.
So if you can’t wait until those uniformed devils make it to your house with that glorious order form you can’t pass up.. this may just tide you over. While you’re not
able to encouraged to actually eat the cookies this way, if you’re really in withdrawal they might offer you that little fix you need. (Just try not to ingest too much flavored wax.)
What do you think? These could be awesome stocking stuffers for the upcoming holiday.. and BONUS make your girlfriend/boyfriend wear your favorite flavor and you’ll be tasting cookies all year round. Would you try this in your favorite Girl Scout Cookie?
Just so we’re clear, turning them into lip balms won’t keep me from eating them.
Who could forget this face?
That’s right it’s none other than our favorite Ricky Martin impersonator: William Hung!
And apparently he’s been keeping busy as America’s favorite American Idol auditioner has found a new gig – with the Los Angeles County Sherriff’s Department.
Talk about a career shift.
Hung is now reportedly working for the LA County Sherriff’s Department as a Technical Crime Analyst, meaning he is analyzing trends and patterns in crimes. This can help law enforcement deploy resources in a more effective manner, as well as playing a role in apprehending suspects, solving crimes, and formulating crime prevention strategies.
…because nothing deters crime like bad karoake and floral prints.
Before auditioning for Idol, Hung was a student at UC Berkeley, studying civil engineering.
Guess we can kiss that dream of a Martin/Hung duet goodbye.
Nickelback has been chosen to play the halftime show of the nationally televised Detroit Lions-Green Bay Packers Thanksgiving Day game. Some Detroit fans seem to have a problem with this.. So, they did what any angry city would do- started a petition to get the band replaced.
The letter goes like this:
This game is nationally televised, do we really want the rest of the US to associate Detroit with Nickelback? Detroit is home to so many great musicians and they chose Nickelback?!?!?! Does anyone even like Nickelback? Is this some sort of ploy to get people to leave their seats during halftime to spend money on alcoholic beverages and concessions? This is completely unfair to those of us who purchased tickets to the game. At least the people watching at home can mute their TVs. The Lions ought to think about their fans before choosing such an awful band to play at halftime.
UPDATE:It now has 47,669 signatures.
I have to say I’m impressed..
Fox News created a list of stars with no talent.. though it probably would have been easier to list the few with talent.
Here are the top contenders brought to you by reality tv, Ryan Seacrest, and rich dads.
2. Paris Hilton:
3. Jon Gosselin
Nice outfit broseph.
-Famous for having more kids than he should probably be allowed. Brad Pitt has almost as many but at least he gave us “Fight Club” and “Inglorious Basterds.”
4. Kelly Bensimon:
– Got her name out there after joining the cast of the “Real Housewives of New York” in season 2 (arguably the most useless season) If that credential isn’t bad enough, technically she didn’t even qualify for the show- she’s been divorced since ’07.
5. Spencer Pratt and his blow up doll (aka Heidi Montag):
6. Kendra Wilkinson:
7. Richard Hatch:
NOTE: I opted for a picture of Rudy because he is awesome and Richard is scary.
– Will forever remain the naked guy who beat the best survivor member EVER – Rudy – back in the first season in ’00. Now he’s a criminal. Cool.
8. Audrina Patridge:
9. Kim Zolciak:
10. Jersey Shore Cast:
11. Nicole Richie:
- You’ll notice she’s always in the tabloids.. but never for anything impressive.
so in keeping with that sentiment, she won’t be pictured here.
12. Brooke Hogan:
Any stars you’d add to this list?
Personally I’d say Keanu Reeves.. but really the options are endless!
