Submitted by Meg Wilson on September 21, 2009 - 18:38.

Corinne Maier wrote a best-seller in France a couple of years ago about why she might not have kids if she got to do it all again.

How Megan Fox Relates with Men

Submitted by Meg Wilson on August 31, 2009 - 08:19.

Megan Fox graces the October cover of Cosmopolitan Magazine. In the interview inside, she has this to say about how she maintains equal power with men in her relationships and flirting;

“It’s fun when someone intends to put you in his back pocket, but instead, he walks away wounded. I make it a mind game so they don’t know if I’m hitting on them or mocking them. Male actors drop lines about their private jets, trying to seem powerful, but I don’t give a s—. I don’t need someone else’s power. I’m obtaining my own.”

Cheaper than Plastic Surgery...

Submitted by Meg Wilson on August 10, 2009 - 12:35.

The Times Online has a story today about how people are increasingly getting their holiday photos airbrushed and retouched, at significant cost. One photography chain in Britain has seen a 550% increase in people requesting photo retouching in the past year.

This is probably largely due to the popularity of posting your photos on Myspace and Facebook.

David Lewis, a psychologist and the author of Loving and Loathing: the Enigma of Personal Attraction, said: “There are very few people who are not vain to some extent and we are increasingly using vision to estimate someone’s true worth. People are now acting as their own PR agents to put a spin on their looks.

“It’s usually harmless, but the problem can come when reality meets the image.”

See the story and a 'before and after' airbrushed beach bikini photo here.

How Did You Get So Rich?

Submitted by Meg Wilson on July 30, 2009 - 12:45.

Does this woman look like she is 76 years old? Not at all. She rather looks like she's had lots of plastic surgery.

Joan Rivers has a new show on TV starting next week called How Did You Get So Rich? She goes around knocking on the doors of mansions, or stopping super expensive cars at stoplights to ask people this question. The answer would probably be of interest to lots of us. It has the potential to be a great show.

Who's the Big Spender in Your Relationship?

Submitted by Meg Wilson on July 28, 2009 - 13:37.

Does your husband blow all your hard-earned money on frivolous stuff? Or are you the one who spends more money in your relationship?

It turns out that even when it comes to habits of spending and saving, opposites attract.

Reuters: "Surveys of married adults suggest that opposites attract when it comes to emotional reactions toward spending," Wharton's Scott Rick and Deborah Small and Northwestern's Eli Finkel said in the paper.

They found that people who generally spend less than they would ideally like to spend, and those who spend more than they would like to tend to marry each other.
