I don’t know how or why or when it happened, but somewhere along the line I realized that I have an inordinate amount of female friends. It’s been a blessing and a curse really. The majority of my closest friends are female. I’m living proof that men and women really can be “just friends.”

Looks like some women haven’t spent their whole lives dreaming of their fairytale wedding.

NBC’s new scripted supernatural drama series Siberia is a show where 16 reality show contestants must survive the Siberian winter in hopes of winning 500,000 dollars.

In this exclusive interview, CupidsPulse.com founder and executive editor Lori Bizzoco chats with Kelly Ripa about Super Saturday, which was held this past weekend in the Hamptons; her relationship with co-host and “soul sibling” Michael Strahan; and her strong marriage to Mark Consuelos. “We just love each other. We still dig each other,” the television personality says of the secret to their marriage of seventeen years. “He does it for me, and I think I do it for him. Otherwise, I don’t think he’d still be here!”

The mother of three also discusses her partnership with Electrolux and their French Door Refrigerator with the Perfect Temp Drawer. Not only does she love their products, but she loves their philanthropic attitude as well. “They’ve been helping me raise money for ovarian research since I’ve been with them. When a company puts forth such an effort not only to make lives easier but also worrying about the health of women, I just think that says something.”

In addition to the event in New York City, Electrolux is inviting Americans to visit www.livelovelux.com through August 22 to enter the Electrolux Perfect Temp Sweepstakes for the chance to win a French Door Refrigerator and a trip to a climate with the Perfect Temp (the Bahamas!).

You may choose to wait until the love of your life comes along or you may not (just make sure you’re always safe). In Hollywood, many celebrities are quick to hop into bed with the next star they see standing next to them on the red carpet, but this isn’t true for every person who has the spotlight shining down on them. Some celebrities pledge abstinence because of their religious beliefs, while others hold out until marriage out of respect for themselves. Here are five couples who waited until their big day:

Newly-minted reality star Blair Late can tell you a thing or two about that experience – all good things. Late and his spouse Jeff Pedersen were all for having cameras follow them around as they transitioned into married life.

Of course, reality television was a familiar world for the couple: “I first met Jeff when I was working on a reality series for Melanie Brown from Spice Girls,” he explains. “A producer friend who hung out with us commented that we were a really odd couple.” A year later, they got engaged, and that same friend suggested that they audition for Bravo’s new documentary series, Newlyweds: The First Year. They soon got a call from the network, and after an extensive three-month background check, they agreed to be part of the show.

Here’s a piece of folk wisdom nearly every newlywed has heard: “If you can survive the wedding, surviving the marriage will be a piece of cake!” Weddings are indeed stressful because they involve a massive amount of planning, cooperating/compromising with your spouse-to-be, the convergence of diverse family and friends, decisions about religion and family traditions, and of course, lots of money.

After the wedding, many newly married couples experience what social scientists call “the honeymoon phase”–a period of several months in the beginning of marriage, characterized by passionate love and intense happiness. But in my experience working with couples, I’ve found that new marriage also comes with new stressors.

To sail through the first few months of marriage with minimal problems, here are 5 Cue Cards, or quick behavioral prompts, to help you navigate around the most common obstacles to newlyweds’ happiness.

Rich, famous and in love… the characteristics we assume every celebrity couple embodies through their glamorous photos of romantic Caribbean getaways and riveting red carpet PDA. However, the image of every celebrity couple is different from how it’s portrayed in the media.

Through their interracial relationships displayed in the media, celebrity couples show us there’s more than meets the eye. Our fixation on Hollywood may be over-the-top, but whoever said we couldn’t take away a solid lesson from it? We learn to accept love in all shapes, sizes and colors, especially in the case of these couples:

Brooke Burke-Charvet is a star in so many ways: actress, model, Dancing With the Stars (DWTS) winner and now co-host. Given her past dancing record (she won season 7), it’s no surprise that DWTS is something she holds near and dear to her heart.

“I loved the experience of learning how to dance. It was an incredible life lesson. Hosting the show and being such a big part of the DWTS family does make me want to dance again, but I doubt that I’d be able to pull off dancing and hosting at the same time!” Continue reading

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries have, at long last, finalized their divorce. Famously married in a lavish ceremony on August 20, 2011 and infamously separated just seventy-two days later – the settlement battle dragged on for a grand total of 536 days. Kim is the one who originally initiated the proceedings in October 2011, citing irreconcilable differences. Now that it’s finally over, both parties seem relieved to end the ordeal. Humphries even tweeted emphatically on April 18th, “Couldn’t be happier!” But that wasn’t always the case.

…You would think that when a marriage clearly goes bad, both people would be eager to get out so they can put a stop to the bad feelings and get a fresh start. But that is easier said than done.

As if Alison Sweeney wasn’t busy enough, she decided to make her foray into fiction with her first novel, The Star Attraction, which published earlier this week.
