  • Patti Davis Poses Nude at 58: Baring Her Body and Soul

    Former Playboy centerfold proves that age is nothing more than a number.
    -Evette Brown, BettyConfidential.com



    At 58, most women are slowing down in their lives and dreaming about retiring to a warm, tropical location where their greatest worry will be where to eat brunch with their golden girls. This isn't the case for author Patti Davis. With a body that would turn most women of any age green with envy, Davis is baring it all - again - in More magazine to promote health and beauty at any age.

    As Davis shares in the More article, after spending her teens and twenties fighting a losing battle to drugs, the stunning beauty nearly lost her life. She conquered her addiction and then decided to engage in a battle with father time. At 58, it appears as if Davis is winning. Most will remember Davis as one of the oldest and most stunning women to grace the cover of popular men's magazine Playboy. She faced criticism when she made the decision to pose nude for Playboy at the age of 42,

  • Candace Bushnell: A Woman Still in Love With Manhattan, Girl Friends, and Sex and the City

    'Sex and the City' author Candace Bushnell proves she's the real-life Carrie Bradshaw as she talks about her new novel, 'Summer and the City.'
    -Faye Brennan, BettyConfidential.com

    At the age of 34, Candace Bushnell created the four girls we've come to know and love: Carrie Bradshaw, Samantha Jones, Miranda Hobbes and Charlotte York of Sex and the City. What started out as a sex column in the New York Observer, blossomed into a book deal, a TV series, and two box office hit movies that have transformed the way women talk about and view sex, martinis and Manolos.

    Now, almost twenty years later, Bushnell's impact is still largely significant. Not only can one tune in to E! every weeknight for a healthy dose of SATC reruns, but a newly released study proves that the series has actually made couples more open to talking about sex and STDs.

    Guys, groan all you want, but Bushnell's genius creation isn't going away anytime soon.

    In fact, Bushnell, 52, has just

    Is there any award show that doesn't have Justin Bieber as a winner? Yup, he and Rascal Flatts won the Collaborative Video award for their song, That Should Be Me at the CMT Music Awards in Nashville last night. At the start of the show, Kid Rock attempted to sing (wearing an old school tracksuit) "Bawitdaba," before getting kicked off the stage by Wynona Judd (with a BAD dye job). She looked at him and said,"This is CMT, son." Mary Steenbergen (where has she been?) introduced a band. Ludacris and Jason Aldean sang a rap duet. Many bands had dancers who would have been equally comfortable dancing for Britney Spears, since they were doing the same moves. The night was one mashup piled upon another mashup.

    While cross-body bags may seem like the least feminine option, when worn diagonally the strap actually creates the illusion of curves by drawing the eye from shoulder to hip. See how the bag works for Taylor Swift.

  • Would You Accept a First Date Invite Via Text?

    Is a phone call too much to ask for these days, or is being asked out via text the new (unromantic) norm?
    -Faye Brennan, BettyConfidential.com

    Romance really is dead. I came to this unfortunate realization a few days ago when I received a two-message text that went something like this: "Hi Faye, it's Jake [not his real name], we met last weekend. Hope you had a great week! Mine was good but work was really busy… I'm going out of town this weekend, but I'd love to get together for a drink next week - would Tues or Weds work for you?"

    How can a girl resist that offer?

    Pretty easily, actually. Jake seemed like a nice guy when I met him, and I would've went out with him... if he hadn't blown it with this first date invite text. For starters, why didn't he just use his phone for what it was originally intended for, CALL ME and use his words to ask me out for the first time? He obviously had a lot to say - a two-message text

  • Diet Snacks: What to Eat to Feel Full


    Munch on these goodies to fight hunger while sticking to your weight loss goals.
    -Melanie Kozlan, BettyConfidential.com

    Trying to diet but all you can think of is food? Instead of depriving yourself, fill up on cheap, nutritious and healthy snacks that your body can't get enough of. Try munching on:

    Unsalted nuts:
    High in fiber, antioxidants, protein and the 'good fats' your body needs, nuts are also carb-free!

    Dates, raisins and other dried fruit:
    Dried fruit is the perfect snack if you're on the go. It tastes like candy but is full of vitamins and fiber.

    Berries & fresh fruit:
    Goji berries contain more vitamin C than oranges, and blueberries are said to fight cellulite. Apples are great appetite depressants because of their high level of acidity. Fill up on fruit but never confuse fruit with "fruit juice." Juice is mostly sugar and contains a disturbing amount of calories.

  • Sexpert Julie: Why Being Sexually Versatile Can Help Your Relationship

    Our Sexpert Julie discusses why it's so important to explore your sexual desires with your partner.
    -Julie Elledge, Ph.D., BettyConfidential.com

    Your man sends you a text asking you to pick up a set of handcuffs and a feather on your way home. He plans to use both on you tonight and clothes are not an option - sexy or creepy?

    Sexual versatility describes the ability of a couple to accommodate to each other's desires and indulge in a variety of sexual scenarios, both intimate and erotic. Couples who have developed a high level of sexual versatility have deeply rooted trust in each other. Playing with power in the bedroom and allowing one person to dominate during an erotic scenario isn't threatening because letting go and giving up control to your man for an erotic scenario is not going to end up with you being hurt (there is never room for coercion in intimacy).
