    Italy's housewives are the most "desperate" in Europe - with growing rates of dissatisfaction on everything from child care to social welfare, according to a new study. The survey of 4,000 women across Europe, carried out by Women and Quality of Life, showed that 76% of Italian housewives were unhappy with their lot - 2.5% higher than the result last year. The rate among Spanish housewives was 63%, French ones were at 57%, British ones were at 51% and German ones at 47%. The group carrying out the survey is headed up by celebrity psychologist Serenella Salomoni and publishes a...

    She has a gaudy new mansion, pricey breast implants and spends thousands of dollars on shopping sprees for her spoiled brats -- but a New Jersey reality star and her goombah hubby are real-life deadbeats who owe $11 million, court records show. Free-spending "Real Housewives of New Jersey" diva Teresa Giudice and her husband, Joe, make just $79,000 a year and are up to their tanned necks in liens, foreclosures and unpaid bills, according to bankruptcy papers filed in Newark federal court. The Giudices say they owe creditors $10,853,648.04. Teresa, known for her lust for designer clothes and expensive bling...

    Young mothers are turning their backs on high-powered careers to raise their children, a study has found.Their mothers, or even grandmothers, lived through a time when women fought for full-time work and better pay.But today's generation is returning to the traditional values of home and family - and looking to men to be the breadwinners.The about-face was highlighted yesterday in research presented by leading sociologist Geoff Dench, who has analysed responses to questions asked in the annual British Social Attitudes survey. His analysis comes against a background of growing political pressure on mothers to go out to work.It revealed a...

    The Arab Times published today what seems to be a serious report titled “Fear of black magic forces maids’ probe“. The underlying message of the title and the report is that the housewives are “forced” to protect themselves against their maids. According to the report, the housewives pay between 200-500 SR ($53-$133) for women, usually foreign but sometimes unemployed Saudi women, who come and check the maids before they leave the country. The investigators search through the maid’s belongings to make sure that she didn’t take the sponsors’ photo, hair or clothing, with which she can preform black magic once...

    Fashion Time: How do the fashion needs of housewives differ from other women? Sarah-Jean: Well housewives and SAHM’s (stay at home moms) can’t be running around doing errands in Jimmy Choos and a strapless cocktail dress. It’s impractical and most certainly foolish. The life of a housewife is so much different than women in NYC with full time jobs. We can’t take a cab to keep our new shoes looking fabulous or keep from getting blisters in them. We’re usually chasing toddlers around from dawn until dusk for heaven’s sakes! Housewives need a completely different set of fashion rules and...

    Desperate Housewives star Nicolette Sheridan is reeling because a former friend is selling what he claims are raunchy photographs of the blonde actress. American newspaper New York Post reports an ex-pal of the 41-year-old star, who plays sex mad divorcee Edie Britt in the hit ABC show, is offering the images to the highest bidder. The unnamed man says: "I think they are beautiful pictures and they should be seen. She doesn't want me to sell them. But the way I look at it, if Mr Blackwell named her the worst-dressed person, she might as well be the least-dressed person."...

    Janice Shaw Crouse: Younger women are more conservative BY JANICE SHAW CROUSE The writer, a senior fellow at Concerned Women for America, wrote this column for Knight Ridder Newpapers. Kim Gandy, president of the National Organization for Women, has said that the next four years under a Bush administration are going to be "tough" for the feminists and they will have to be "tougher." Well, conservative women, who have been marginalized, stereotyped, put down and humiliated at every turn over the past couple of decades, have gone through tough and tougher. Now that our time is here, we're the toughest...

    So Karl Rove, in what must surely be the greatest magic trick of all time, did indeed pull four million evangelicals out of his hat. As of Wednesday morning, we’re a nation whose values are pure, strong, and beyond reproach. The sanctity of marriage has been preserved. George and Laura are a New American Gothic, Ozzie and Harriet in a Hummer. And you can bet they approve this message. The votes are still being counted (or, you know… not) and neo-conservatives are gleefully drawing up plans for the new American theocracy. John Kerry is, um, “relaxing” in his Boston home....
