Sex-sent-me-drl-668x375Get ready for more cringe-worthy, cover-your-eyes moments from Sex Sent Me to the ER.

Starting April 12th and continuing through the end of the year, TLC will be bringing you more must-watch stories of the casualties of sexual encounters gone wrong.

Last season, the 400-lb virgin and rock and roll sex scene brought you just a taste of the crazy medical needs that can come from bedroom blunders.

Tune in to watch people share their stories of intimacy with a twist. Featured incidents include an adventurous couple whose preference for candy and sex lands them in the ER, a man and woman who bring their sex life to the grocery store aisle, and a scientist who aspires to become one with nature, but mistakenly gets a little too close for comfort when he does so while buck naked.

Do you have a story from a time sex sent you to the ER? Tell us about it in the comments!

5 Ways To Trick Yourself Into Saving Money

11/06/2013

Let's face it: We don't all have what it takes to live like the folks on Extreme Cheapskates. If reusing paper plates, peeing in bottles, and skipping showers isn't in your game plan, then maybe it's time to think of other ways you can save a few dollars. Thankfully, we've got some less extreme tips for you. 

 

Pay With Cash: Cash is easier to keep track of that credit cards, which we often swipe with abandon without thinking of their true cost. Plastic doesn't feel as real as cash, so we tend to spend and spend, swipe and swipe, without really thinking about what we're doing. So put down the bank card and put yourself on a cash diet. 

Make Your Savings Automatic: The easiest way to save is when you don't even know you're doing it. So set aside a portion of each of your paychecks to go directly into your savings account or a separate account. It'll hurt less if you don't have to do it manually — you won't even miss the money. It doesn't matter how much money you choose to set aside, just as long as you put it aside. Even if it's $100 a paycheck, it really adds up. 

Put Down The Starbucks Cup: Yes, we know, you can't live without your coffee. But a week of fancy coffee drinks can cost upwards of $25. That's more than a hundred dollars a month, which is well over a thousand dollars a year. On coffee. When you think about it like that, it's easy to reconsider cutting some if not all of your coffee habit out. If you really love the feeling of a fancy coffee in the morning, consider purchasing an at-home milk steamer for $25. Do-it-yourself, and save tons of money!

Check Your Subscriptions: Are you paying for Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime? Do you and your roommates or spouse all have subscriptions, even though your all living under the same roof? Why? Figure out what services you're using that overlap or offer similar enough features so that you can streamline your usage. That goes for magazines, newspapers, film and cable services, and club memberships, too. 

Try Keeping The Change: Keep the Change is a Bank of America where they round up your purchase to the next dollar and transfer the amount from your checking to your savings account. But even if you're not a Bank of America customer, you can institute a similar program for yourself, simply by being diligent about transferring the change you have — including small bills — into a savings account. It won't yield huge results, but it will create a small and steady stream of savings that will add up over time. And it'll show you the value of saving. 

Tell us: What are your favorite tips for saving?

Secret Princes Recap: Ladies, Lorenzo, and The Lone Star State

10/28/2013

It's time for round two of Secret Princes, our favorite show about the trials and travails of a bunch of royal guys looking for love — in all the wrong places. This season, the guys travel to Austin, Texas, on the hunt for "princesses" who will love them for who they are. Let's meet our princes, ladies!

Article-2425997-1BEC197A000005DC-115_634x437

We have: 

 

  • Prince Alexander of Russia, He's 34 years old and a direct descendent of the House of Romanov. Has a career as a photographer and lives in Kent, England.
  • Prince Lorenzo de Medici of Italy. He's 37 and an heir to the famous House of Medici.
  • Lord James Rennell of Rodd, 34, and the 4th Baron Rennell. He works for an event planning company. 
  • And finally, the Honourable Oliver Plunkett of Dunsany, 28.

 

Prince Alexander's mom is not excited about this adventure. Princess Olga, who lives in Kent, UK, is a little skeptical of her son's plan. She's not interested in a girl from Texas. "Oh, I think they'll be down to Earth. Very down to Earth."

Did we mention she's wearing an incredible pin of dachshund on her vest?

Dachshund-pin

Oliver Plunkett wants a girl who's smart, beautiful, and a "wonderful southern cook," though what a guy from Meath County, Ireland, knows about southern cooking is anyone's guess.

Oliver is kind of a nerd, from the looks of it. He likes video games, and spends a lot of times with his dog Commander Chow. That's kind of cute (and sad). But cute. "I don't think I've ever been in love," he said. Well, that's gotta change.

Lord James Rennell of Rodd is next to arrive at the house in Austin. Lord James is third to arrive in Texas but the first really, ridiculously hot one. His type? Cameron Diaz, Jessica Biel, Megan Fox. He wants a girl who is "her own person, but also head over heels in love with him, as well."

Our final arrival is Prince Lorenzo de Medici. And he is … amazing. I love his outfits. He has a maid, a driver, a tailor, a cook, "but there's only one thing that's missing -- love."

But one thing he's not missing: confidence. "It's very difficult to resist my charm."

With an ego like that, you didn't think he'd be happy with getting the last and smallest room in the house, did you? Of course not. After a brief dispute over whose family has the most rank, everyone decides to keep the rooms they have.

Then it's time to decide on their fake American names and a cover story. They get dressed up "American style," but go waaaaay overboard, dressing like a band of wacky tourists from an '80s movie. What young guy wears a fanny pack?

Bad-idea

That didn't stop Oliver from getting really, really drunk, taking off his pants and riding a mechanical bull.

The next day, the boys try and buy some new clothes, but they forget that they actually have no money, so they're forced to go thrift store shopping. Prince Lorenzo is not feeling it. "I can't get used to it that I don't have money," said Lorenzo. When he doesn't have enough money to buy everything he wants, a nice guy at the thrift store gives him three extra dollars. "American people are the most generous people in the world."

They realize they MUST get some jobs. "This is gonna suck ass," says Prince Alexander, who is suddenly realizing being in the real world is actually hard work. He's been working at a car wash for three minutes and he already screwing it up by flirting with the female customers. Lorenzo, too. He claims he is unable to wear the tomato costume required of him by the sandwich shop he's working at because it won't fit over his legs. These guys!

Pants


They try and redeem their first few days in Texas by playing a game of kickball - and strike out both on the field, and with the women on their kickball team. Finding love is going to be harder than these guys thought.

Questions for next week:
Will Lorenzo find a pair of tights that fit him?
How badly are they going to screw up each other's fake names? 
Will they finally break down and clean their disgusting house?

4 Dating Tips From Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar

09/24/2013

The-duggars
Dating as a member of the multitudinous Duggar clan is anything but typical. Just ask Jessa Duggar, the family's 20-year-old daughter, who recently got in a relationship with 18-year-old Ben Seewald. 

The pair met at church, and indeed, much of their courting has centered around their faith. Per Michelle and Jim Bob's instructions, "They are enjoying getting to know each other and are recommending sermons to one another.”

Michelle and Jim Bob actually have quite a few ideas about dating. Here are there tips for families. 

1. Make it a family affair: Take an interest in who your kids are dating. And include them in family events, when appropriate. Jim Bob and Michelle monitor the couple's texts, which have mostly been oriented around discussions of scripture, and they invite Ben to join them on family outings. 

2. Check 'em out: And trust your instincts. "When a guy is pursuing your daughter, you want to check him out and see if there are any red flags,” said Jim Bob. “With Ben, there hasn’t been. He is very sharp. It appears like a match made in heaven.” 

3. Create boundaries: “Dad allowed them to do a side hug when they were officially courting,” explained Michelle. The Duggar family also believes that a couple should refrain from kissing until marriage -- and daughter Jessa agrees. "They agreed that would be the only contact they should have.” 

4. Find partners with similar values: “He’s the first one she has shown interest in that has a spiritual focus and legitimate calling about ministry work,” said Jim Bob.

Mama June's Sketti Surprise For Wendy Williams

07/24/2013

How you doin'? Honey Boo Boo's Mama June Shannon appeared on The Wendy Williams Show last week, and made Wendy chunky pork and beans -- and of course, her signature butter-plus-ketchup-plus-pasta dish, Sketti. Butter!

Mama June again reiterated that she's got bank accounts set up for each of her daughters and her granddaughter -- money that they can't touch until they turn 21.

June also discussed her celeb crush Mario Lopez. "I mean, who didn't grow up with Mario Lopez on 'Saved by the Bell?'" she said. True 'nuff. And she admitted that she recently met Miley Cyrus, who gave her a hug, but didn't recognize her at first. "It happened so fast!"

Survey Says: Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Vs. Cake Boss On Family Fued Is Gonna Be Awesome

07/17/2013

Put your dukes up, because there's about to be an all out war––on the game show front, that is. Monday, July 22, they'll be taping a new episode of Family Feud featuring Alana, Mama June and the rest of the Boo Boo clan going head to head with Buddy and the Cake Boss crew. We wonder if host Steve Harvey has any idea what he's gotten himself into.

Honey-boo-boo-buddy-071713

Of course, both teams have their specialties. Team Cake Boss is skilled in all things food-related (some might say Mama June is, too). And Team Honey Boo Boo knows everything there is to know about redneck-ery (and farting, and breath-smelling). So which team will take it to the top? We'll just have to wait and find out when the episode airs.

Honey Boo Boo's Mama June On Her Weight Loss & Being Bullied For Being Fat

Mama-june-071513Here Comes Honey Boo Boo's mama June Shannon turned a lot of heads earlier this year when she revealed she'd lost around a hundred pounds since the show first aired. But just because June's lost some weight, don't expect much to change, diet-wise, around the Boo Boo household.

In an interview with In Touch Weekly June stressed that she's not changing for anybody, and doesn't regret gaining some of the weight back. "Everybody has opinions, and everyone has haters," said June. Instead, she offers a size-positive message. "I think you have to be happy with yourself, even if you’re big. If you worry about trying to make other people happy, you won’t be happy yourself."

And as for the family's diet, don't expect to see health food on the table anytime soon. "I’m not trying to cook whatever’s cool," she said. "I cook what my family wants me to cook!" So yes to cupcakes, cheese puffs and Sketti. (Thank God.)
