  • Love It or Hate It: The Best and Worst Dressed at Comic-Con

    Here are the fabulous, the drab, and the "should have left that dress at home" celeb looks (we're talking to you, Carey Mulligan) from Comic-Con!

    -Evette Brown,

    This past weekend, comic book and science fiction lovers united with fashion fiends on the red carpet in San Diego for Comic-Con 2011. Four fun-filled days of comic books, science fiction movies, TV show, games, parties and more had the stars dazzling, but nothing topped the brightness of the season's hottest designers on stars like Kate Beckinsale and Olivia Wilde at the premiere of one of the most anticipated summer blockbusters, Cowboys & Aliens.

    Some of the most popular A-listers, including our favorite Bon Temps resident, Anna Paquin and Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev strutted fashionably throughout the weekend convention, but of course there were some that shone much brighter than the rest.

    Here are the fabs, the drabs and "the should-have-never-been-worn" digs from Comic Con 2011.

    As much as some of us want to cancel the Kardashian life on our TV subscriptions, let's face it: They know how to party the right way!

    This weekend, Kim Kardashian and her fiancé Kris Humphries both celebrated their bachelorette/bachelor parties in Las Vegas. And in typical sister behavior, Khloe Kardashianmade it her mission to embarrass the eldest sibling the entire night at Tao, whether that meant hiring a miniature male stripper or ordering straws and cakes shaped like penises, according toUs Weekly.

    "My sisters are doing everything they can to embarrass me," Kim told the crowd that includedLala Vasquez Anthony, Simone Harouche and Brittny Gastineau.

    Get the scoop on the adorable and hilarious "Friends with Benefits" star.

    Mila Kunis has been blowing up this year, gracing magazine cover after magazine cover, and we're happy to say we think the girl totally deserves it. At just 27, the talented actress has quite the resume. The starlet has shined on the small screen as everyone's favorite spoiled princess Jackie in That 70s Show, and blossomed on the big screen, cracking us up in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and freaking us out in Black Swan.

    Not only can the girl act and make us laugh, she's also a total sweetheart. Case in point, her recent agreement to accompany Sgt. Scott Moore to the Marine Corps Ball.

    But if you're still not convinced about Mila or you're just a huge fan like us, check out these interesting tidbits about the gorgeous and talented actress.

  • Sexpert Julie: You May Want to Try Talking Dirty to Your Man

    To unlock his emotions and rediscover your erotic side, it may be time to go outside your comfort zone.
    - Julie Elledge,

    Couple smiling in bedroomCouple smiling in bedroom

    Your man wants to talk dirty to you and you're not sure that you like it. As if that's not enough, he also wants you to talk dirty to him! So why is this a turn off for you?

    It all has to do with the stress of culture pitted against human biology. From a very young age, men are asked to disavow their intimate self with "real boys don't cry" (whose bright idea was that one?) and girls are encouraged to disown their erotic self when they are told that "nice girls don't…"

    The truth is, boys do cry and girls do...

    For boys, the story is a little easier. Emotions are contagious and you might have noticed that your man hates to see you cry. Your tears may be causing his well-trained composure to crack. That composure has its roots in his biological history of having to defend the family. It can feel pretty scary if you are facing a

  • Do You Think Your Marriage Would Be Better If You Lived Apart?

    What if he lived next door?
    -Melissa Chapman,

    marriage couplemarriage couple

    I'm the FIRST to admit this: living with another human being, especially of the opposite sex, day in and day out, has its drawbacks. In fact I could probably fill up a book with all the things that make me at times want to strangle my spouse. Here's just a smattering...

    1. The toilet situation. Men and their "use and abuse" of the toilet -- between leaving the seat up at 2 am (so you, in your sleepy stupor, fall bum first into cold toilet water), and their uncanny ability, at mid-life, to still manage to miss the bowl. Plus the fact that sometimes, walking into the bathroom is akin to walking into a lion's den.

    2) Then there's the hair. The chin, nose, ear hair which, as a woman, if you clip, wax, tweeze or pluck, you do it in the most cleanliest of ways, whereas your man will leave his whiskers EVERYWHERE.

    3) The smell test. I have a one-day rule for the bulk of the clothing I wear -- as in, I

  • See Who's in a Bar Before You Go!

    Find out what's happening in a bar with SceneTap!
    -Kenneth Thapoung,

    scene tap appscene tap app

    For all you Chicago folks out there, this Friday, a free app called SceneTap will make your bar hopping nightlife all the more successful! The app knows how crowded a bar is, whether it's a guy hot spot or an oldies lounge, and if it's any fun. It's that smart.

    SceneTap doesn't require check-ins like it's predecessor Foursquare. But, you can connect with friends via Foursquare, Twitter, and Facebook. The new app uses "facial detection" and "people counting" technologies from cameras in participating bars to collect and provide demographic data in real-time. Sounds a bit invasive and creepy, but you can drink and flirt easy because the video feed isn't recorded, and neither the bar owner nor user have access to it.

    Don't fret if you're not in Chicago or stuck with a BlackBerry like me. The service will be available on the Web, and considering more than 200 bars in cities across

  • Wedding Bells for Jennifer Aniston?

    She may have found the one!

    Jennifer Aniston and Justin TherouxJennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux

    Love is in the summer breeze for superstar actress, Jennifer Aniston, and her hunkster boyfriend, Justin Theroux!

    After two months of hot-and-heavy dating, the lovebirds are inching towards the wedding aisle, according to a report from Hollywood Life. A friend of Jen has allegedly told the site that the couple is "kind of pre-engaged" and might exchange wedding vows on Kauai before the end of the summer!

    Romantic much?

    Earlier this month, Justin was spotted sharing a meal with Jennifer's father at Delmonico, and after the superstar actress sold her house in Beverly Hills a few weeks ago, the two have been spotted at five or six different mansions. Could they be looking to share new digs as they plan a fabulous wedding?

    If their recent PDA is any indication, the answer is YES! Let's hope that Jen has finally found the one.
