    The Moral Liberal ^ | June 29, 2011 | Alan Caruba
    There’s a lot I don’t know about Michele Bachmann, the Minnesota Representative who just announced that she wants to be the next President of the United States of America, but I do know she is great eye candy and, given the present occupier of the office, I would much rather look at her in the Oval Office than him. She is—and I say this with all due respect—a babe. Mitt Romney, with whom she is currently a “front runner” in the nomination sweepstakes, looks classically presidential. He is a handsome fellow with a winning smile. My guess, though, is that...

    Andrea Doucet reviews the research on whether women should ‘go ugly,’ and draws a different set of conclusions than Vicky Larson.I’m not an expert on beautiful women and “hot or not” men. And I don’t have much interest in the question Vicky Larson explored in The Huffington Post, which is, “how a smart, accomplished, beautiful woman like Huma Abedin got herself involved with a guy like Weiner.”Yet the wide interest in this story made me take a second look; at last glance over 18,000 people seem to have “liked” it and even Whoopi Goldberg opened a discussion of it on...
  • The Mobama effect: New Ł60 cream tightens the upper arms and 'banishes bingo wings'

    A cream which promises to give women 'Obama Arms' by shaving up to two centimetres of fat off dreaded bingo wings is set to go on sale in UK this week. Arm Sculpt makers Rodial claim applying the Ł60 cream to the affected spot twice a day destroys fatty cells and tightens skin giving the user toned arms like Michelle Obama. In trials it showed that 22 per cent of the fat can be dispersed if the cream is applied properly and that 56 days use will see an incredible 2cms disappear.

    Recently, she decided to participate in a local beauty contest. She placed seventh. But her passion for fashion may have led to her death. Shortly after the pageant, Koren went missing. Now, a young man has apparently admitted to police that he killed Koren under Shariah Law.
  • Psychology Today Apologizes for 'Black Women Less Attractive' Post

    The Atlantic Wire ^ | May 28, 2011 | Ujala Sehgal
    Earlier this month, the popular magazine Psychology Today published an article by evolutionary psychologist Satoshi Kanazawa titled “Why Are Black Women Less Physically Attractive Than Other Women?" that was met, expectedly, with mass outrage. The article used data based on another study to make several claims such as "black women are objectively less physically attractive than other women" yet "subjectively consider themselves to be far more physically attractive than others." After some attempted editing of the title, the magazine retracted the post from its website in its entirety. Kanazawa in turn is facing an investigation by the London School of...

A day after coming forward and saying she made up the tale of injecting her 8-year-old daughter with the wrinkle-removing concoction, Sheen Upton is getting stiffed herself—ABC says it won't be paying her the $10,000 the network's Good Morning America forked over to secure her first TV interview as a "photo licensing fee." Here's where things stand in the sordid saga. As we reported yesterday, Upton says she was paid $200 by...

    A Brazilian woman who claimed to have the world’s largest fake breasts fell into a coma following a suicide attempt, a British tabloid reported. Sheyla Hershey, 31, had her KKK-size implants removed in September after suffering an infection during an operation to have them blown up to an even-larger MMM cup, according to Britain's The Sun. Since then, Hershey, who is married with children, has been distraught, saying that she feels "so ugly" without her breasts, The Sun reported. She was due to have an operation to restore her breasts to size KKK, but she took a lethal dose of...
  • Just 50! The age a woman becomes 'invisible' to the opposite sex

    The Daily Mail Online ^ | 11th February 2011 | David Wilkes
    If life begins at 40, you’d better hurry up and enjoy it, ladies. For in another ten years you are likely to think all men are ignoring you. A survey has found that eight out of ten women over the age of 50 think members of the opposite sex no longer notice them. So while The Beatles famously lamented becoming over the hill ‘When I’m 64’, women in 2011 will instead be wondering: ‘Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I’m... 50?’ As if that’s not bad enough, seven out of ten women also feel overlooked...

Posted by Sasha Brown-Worsham on February 9, 2011 at 1:25 PM Comments (4)| Likes (5) Share 18 Queen Rania of Jordan is undoubtedly an international celebrity. Most of this is due to her marked beauty and taste for fine things. But her lavish lifestyle may soon come to end as Jordan is showing some signs that it could be the next Egypt or Tunisia. Recent revolts, like the ones that took out Tunisia's Zine El Abidine Ben Ali and currently threaten Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak, have been played out on...

    Beautiful people don't just get all the breaks, scientists say they're likely smarter than most people, too. A study in England conducted by researchers at the London School of Economics found that attractive men and women generally have higher IQs. "Physical attractiveness is significantly positively associated with general intelligence," said LSE lead researcher Satoshi Kanazawa, in the latest issue of the journal, Intelligence. The study indicated attractive men have IQs that are 13.6 points above the average, while beautiful women are 11.4 points higher than average.

    UB40 drummer Jimmy Brown's daughter has launched UK's first halal beauty shop. Rose, 20, launched the store, which sells cosmetics free from alcohol and pig fat, in Birmingham after she found out the ingredients used in conventional products. "Obviously, there are a lot of Muslims who will be interested, but I think the products will work for anyone who is concerned about what they're putting on their bodies," the Daily Star quoted her as saying. "The halal certification gives you peace of mind," she added.

    It would be so nice if inner beauty triumphed over outer appearance. But men are designed to care about packaging. It's time to accept the not-so-pretty facts about looks. There are certain practical realities of existence that most of us accept. If you want to catch a bear, you don't load the trap with a copy of Catch-22—not unless you rub it with a considerable quantity of raw hamburger. If you want to snag a fish, you can't just slap the water with your hand and yell, "Jump on my hook, already!" Yet, if you're a woman who wants to...

    A soft-spoken teen from Louisville, Kentucky beat out 114 young women around the globe for the title of Miss World on Saturday evening. Alexandria Mills, 18, was the surprise winner in the 60th annual contest, which took place in southern China. Emma Wareus of Botswana came in second place and Adriana Vasini of Venezuela placed third. The tall, American blonde recently graduated from high school and would like to become a teacher someday, according to her biography on the Miss World website. It also says she’s a vegetarian and she enjoys traveling, photography and playing the French horn. Her personal...

    It’s odd but no so odd at the same time. By now, many people expect to walk into a beauty supply store and see a Korean store owner manning the register. Whether you’re in the suburbs of Houston or on MLK Blvd in Anytown, USA, you know what to expect. And yet, walking down a street in a Black neighborhood with Black residents and Black customers buzzing about the retail shops, that image of the few Koreans in the neighborhood only existing behind the cash register of liquor, beauty supply and other retail shops is still perplexing.

    [Study reveals that women's bodies draw the interest of men who want to date, but marriage-seeking men consider women's faces as well.] As a woman, you might be put off by men checking you out in a bar. Now these lecherous looks might be blamed on an evolutionary tendency. The Telegraph reports on a study from the University of Texas, Austin, that shows that men decide who they want to date in the short-term by looking at women’s bodies. If they are more marriage-inclined, they will also check out her face. The study took into consideration the reactions of 375...

    A British private schoolgirl has caused quite a storm after she was named America's Perfect Teen. Anysha Panesar, 16, beat a host of American beauties to win the contest while on holiday in Florida, but her victory has left families of the other contestants furious. Parents of the American girls have protested to the organisers of the pageant, which has a 2,000-dollar first prize, and an 18,000-dollar scholarship to train as a TV broadcaster. But Panesar has hit back, arguing that the outcry is just sour grapes. "Some people did say I shouldn't have won because I'm British. But really...

    For a business trip two years ago, I took a connecting flight from the Lansing airport to Detroit so as to catch another plane to my destination. It was a near-perfect fall morning with all the trees at full color, and I had a window seat. The pilot rewarded me further by plotting his route over the "Lakes Area" of western Oakland County, and for the first time ever I was given a "God's eye" view of the community where I spent most of the first 34 years of my life. It was breathtaking to pass above the dozens of...
