    "Toniiiiiiiight's the niiiiiiight," you're probably singing that to yourself.

Channel your inner porn star with these racy get-ups, which we've paired with red-hot lingerie options that will make him hyperventilate just like Brad does over Angelina.

  • Exclusive Q&A With Jane Lynch

    The 'I Do & I Don't' star gets personal with BettyConfidential.

    Jane LynchJane Lynch

    The infamous Glee star, Jane Lynch has a new DVD lighting up televisions across the world. She is funny, bawdy and all around thrilling to watch. In I Do & I Don't Jane plays an alcoholic woman who has signed up with her husband (Matt Servitto) to provide pre-marital counseling to a young couple about to take their walk down the aisle. With Jane's nonstop sexual advances towards to the groom-to-be (Bryan Callen) and her unwillingness to put down the vodka bottle, things are bound to get hilarious.

    What was the most fun scene to shoot in I Do & I Don't?

    The scene with Brian Callen, when I come on to him while he's exercising. We end up spanking each other and then I slap him. That was fun. There's also a scene with the four of us (Callen, Lynch, Matt Servitto and Alexie Gilmore) are sitting on a couch singing the song "Halleluiah," eat his body drink his blood. It

  • Celebrity Men That Must Rock in Bed!

    Here's how we imagine Johnny Depp, Tom Brady and other famous fellas measure up in the sex department.

    Jonathan Rhys Meyers Jonathan Rhys Meyers

    What is it about certain men that set hearts aflutter? Is it strong arms? A killer smile? A six pack tummy? A tender heart? Or maybe a rock hard tush that you just want to slather in butter, chomp on and cuddle up to whilst sleeping?

    Whatever it is, fantasizing about men and what they are like in bed is a favorite past time of my girlfriends and me. Sometimes I'm a romantic, dreaming about a passionate night with a classic leading man like Clark Gable. Other times I'm a cougar with a Zac Efronfetish. Or, just for kicks, I imagine what it would be like to take money from Charlie Sheen and send him off with a smile. (We've all had moments thinking we should get paid for it.)

  • How Could You?!

    Sofia Wisher is the 23rd child to die this year due to parental neglect, and I'm beside myself.

    -Carolyn French,

    On one particularly sweltering evening I gave my neighbors a reason to relocate after I read a news story and began screaming at the top of my lungs - "HOW COULD YOU??!"

    I normally reserve that tone for instances such as Jennifer Anistonjumping into Player Mayer's bed for the umpteenth time, but this was bad. Really freaking bad.

    A couple based in Antioch, California (roughly 49 miles from my home) left their 7-month-old daughter in their car … overnight … and she died.

    I had tears streaming down my face and a lump in my throat the size of Italy while picturing little Sofia Wisher, alone in that car, forfourteen hours.

    This wasn't a case of a mother dashing back into the house for 30 seconds to retrieve a teething ring. This was unforgiveable.

    But you want to know what prompted me to tell each and every one of my

    Draw attention to your best assets.

    While trying on jeans may not be one of our favorite activities, shopping for accessories is fashion fun at its finest. A sparkly, shiny or otherwise eye-catching piece draws the eye just where you want it, and away from where you might not. Best of all, accessories make just about any outfit more fun and they're one-size-fits-all-so long as you choose pieces that are best suited to your body type. Christina Hendricks uses minimal accessories, like the giant emerald ring to make sure all eyes are on her.

  • The University of Hugh Hefner: A Unique Approach To Education

    The Playboy Mansion is turning former party girls into success stories.

    -Libby Keatinge,

    Hugh Hefner with Bridget, Holly, and KendraHugh Hefner with Bridget, Holly, and Kendra

    A wealthy old man in his eighties has several girlfriends at one time, all blonde, curvaceous, and beautiful - and all about fifty years younger than he is. It initially sounds a little creepy, but actually living at the Playboy Mansion appears to be not such a bad place for a young girl in Hollywood. In her new book, Sliding Into Home, former girlfriend Kendra Wilkinson details a home life during her time living at the Playboy Mansion that surprisingly is extremely ordered, structured, and tame. This stable domestic arrangement might explain why the majority of the ladies that have loved Hugh Hefnerand lived in the Playboy Mansion as his girlfriends have turned out pretty well, especially considering they were immersed in a Hollywood environment.

  • Tim Gunn: "I Don’t Want to Be Seen As Predictable"

    The breakout star gives some insight into season eight of "Project Runway."

    -Sarah Polonsky,

    Tim GunnTim Gunn

    If there is one man that knows how to put designers under rapid fashion fire it's Tim Gunn. But how does the mentor to aspiring stylistas really feel about the slew of young hopefuls he advises onProject Runway? "There are so many designers," Tim reveals to BettyConfidential. "Making rounds of the workroom takes forever. I end up feeling spent and exhausted physically and mentally."

    This is not to say that Tim does not love his job. He does. This is why Tim has always made it his chief duty to assist each and every designer with his or her creations-until now. "I can divulge that this season has been the only time I haven't been able to make it around to all of the contestants the first round." Looks like season eight (airing on Lifetime July 29 th ) will be jam-packed!

  • The Maternity-Leave Conflict

    How women can get the time they need-without alienating their boss.
    - Jane Farrell,

    BettyConfidential's CEO, Deborah Perry Piscione, talked to The New York Times this week about a very hot topic-maternity leave for working women-and how a flexible approach has helped her tackle the issue.

    Among all the countries in the world, the U.S. and Australia are the only ones that do not provide any paid maternity leave whatsoever. The federal Family and Medical Leave Act, which mandates 12 weeks of unpaid maternity leave, covers only companies with more than 50 employees. But more than half of all U.S. companies have fewer than 50 employees, which means that women who work for them aren't eligible for any maternity leave at all.

    And since, according to the National Women's Law Center, an estimated 71 percent of women with children 18 or under are in the workforce, that means the lack of maternity leave has affected millions of female workers.
