    E! has tapped into women's two most important goals in life - looking pretty and getting hitched - for a new reality show called "Bridalplasty." Weddingplanning and plastic surgery, what more could a gal want? Brides will make a "wish list" of plastic surgery procedures they desire before the most important day of their lives. The winner of a wedding-themed challenge, like writing vows or planning a honeymoon, gets to choose one procedure from her wish list as her prize with the results revealed at the beginning of the next show.

    The lucky grooms of these well-balanced ladies will not see the results until they lift the veil at the altar right before they exchange "I dos!" Because, really, if a man is going to latch onto the ol' ball-and-chain for life, at least it should be pert, unwrinkled, and incapable of displaying emotion? Amirite?

    A recent study by British hotel chain Travelodge has found that 25 percent of men take teddy bears on the road with them when they travel for business. These men report that their stuffed animals remind them of home and the significant others they have to leave behind. This is a shocking survey to many, who believe that grown men shouldn't tote around stuffed animals, as it betrays certain masculine gender rules. For one, men snuggle as a means to an end. Men snuggle in order to procure sex, or as payment for services rendered. Men are also encouraged to put away childish things more than women or, at least, their toys aren't supposed to look like toys. Women are rewarded for holding on to the virginal innocence of youth, which comes in handy when raising a child. This is all completely ridiculous, of course.

  • Pregnancy Denial: A Horrifying Mental Illness

    Every once in a while, you read a horrifying story about a mom who smothers her baby or throws her newborn in a dumpster. Some experts are saying that there is a mental illness that could lead to this behavior-pregnancy denial. They say pregnancy denial is a "quasi-schizophrenic condition" where a woman either cannot fathom or accept that she is pregnant. The level of denial is so strong that they do not ever talk to their spouse or see a gynecologist about the pregnancy. And they certainly would never consider an abortion because they simply do not believe they are pregnant. "These women are so convinced pregnancy is impossible that once the child they never wanted arrives, they don't accept it as real and get rid of it to restore order to what they believe is nonpregnant reality," a gynecologist who is an expert on the condition says.

  • 4 Myths About Women That Just Aren’t True

    Health MythsiStockphoto

    As women, we hear a lot about what we should and shouldn't do to our bodies. Drink this much water, take x-amount of these vitamins, or stay away from certain foods ... it's so confusing! What's a girl to do? Can you get pregnant while you're on your period? Do antibiotics decrease the effectiveness of birth control? An article on LiveScience debunks the rumors so we can finally get it straight. Check out four myths-and one truth-all women need to know.

    1. You can't get pregnant while you're on your period. False! It's unlikely you'll get pregnant, but it's still a possibility. According to the article, you can ovulate during menstruation, meaning sex during your period is not fool-proof! Be careful.

    2. Menopause decreases your sex drive. Nope! Other things caused by menopause, like hot flashes, may keep women from getting in the mood, but there is no direct link between menopause and sex drive. Don't worry, ladies-your mojo

    On last night's episode of "My Boys," the character of Bobby got a little obsessed with what actually makes a "real man" and he enlisted all his friends to undertake 100 tasks that a man should be able to do. An interest in Nascar is not really my idea of manliness, but there are some qualities and abilities that are. Here are 20 things that make a man, according to us Frisky editors. Care to add another 20 more?

    1. He's always polite to your parents to their faces, but just with you he agrees they're bonkers.

    2. He kills the spider ... or at least catches it and puts it outside.

    3. He's not afraid for you to see him cry.

    4. He knows women love Don Draper because Don Draper is smoking hot, not because we actually want to date an adulterous alcoholic leading a double life.

    5. He never calls anyone a "f-- ."

    Inappropriate Celeb EngagementsSplash News

    Gross-out of the day: Hulk Hogan's ex-wife Linda just got engaged to her 21-year-old boyfriend Charlie Hill! And the kicker-he was her son Nick's friend. Linda's daughter Brooke has said the relationship freaks her out. "I personally don't like it at all or condone it, but she's my mom, so I have to show her support," Brooke said. "I went to school with him. He was a grade under me. Me and Nick know him well." They plan on getting married on Linda's new yacht, which is aptly named "Alimoney." I'm not sure which part of this story is worse, but one thing's for sure: this is one inappropriate celebrity engagement! [PopEater]

    It's super cute when famous people have long and happy relationships with people they met before they made it. That's why we were kind of OK with T.I. marrying Tameka "Tiny" Cottle last Friday in Miami. They've dated off and on for eight years and already have two kids together, so it's pretty obvious they aren't jumping into things. [People]

    Jennifer Aniston
    The Role: Almost always "unlucky in love," Aniston routinely plays a somewhat dry-witted, fickle, but good-hearted Average Jane who ultimately finds Mr. Right. Oh, and her hair is always perfect.
    Seen In: "Rumor Has It," "The Break-Up," "He's Just Not That Into You," "Picture Perfect," "Along Came Polly," "The Object of My Affection," "Management," "Love Happens," "The Bounty Hunter," "The Switch."
    Exception: "The Good Girl," in which Aniston plays a woman who is sad. The film was so well-written and subtle that her talents were able to shine.
