Women scream and men run away:  When it comes to arguing with your partner, there’s a lot of learning to be done


PARSHIP study shows that women tend to react more emotionally than men, while men tend to withdraw from relationship strife.  41% of Parship members surveyed, admit that, when they argue with their partner, they can easily let their emotions run away with them. When there is strife in a relationship, strong emotional reactions are more frequent among women than men (45% vs 36%) according to the findings of a representative survey of c.1000 people between 18 and 65, conducted by PARSHIP (, the leading online dating agency across Europe. Offended or overcome with rage.

The survey also shows that, among people who react emotionally in the event of conflict, the nature of the emotional outburst differs widely: 40% rapidly take offence and stop speaking to their partner; around a third give vent to their anger and labour their point until their partner gives in, and around one in five withdraw from the argument, leaving the room or the house. Strikingly, men attempt significantly more frequently than women to withdraw from the argument and flee the situation, while women have a greater tendency to give vent to their anger.

“Insufficient skill in handling conflict is often the trigger for the failure of a relationship,” explains psychologist Markus Ernst, PARSHIP relationship expert. “For instance, gender-driven differences in communication style can easily lead to misunderstandings or even to the couple hurting each other. Women and men stand to learn something from each other in these situations as they work together to establish a constructive attitude to conflict in their relationship.” .

The independent online survey took place in January 2012.

Remebering Whitney Houston

Whitney Houston

We will always remember where we were, when we heard the tragic and sad news that Whitney Houston had passed away.  The news sent shock waves through the entertainment industry, sparking outcries of grief.  Whitney has been described by so many people over the years as the beautiful woman with the best voice in the world, Oprah Winfrey calling her simply, ‘The Voice’ Her vocal range and the heavenly tone to her voice, has made it immediately recognisable and loved by millions.  Whitney Houston has had many highs and lows in her life, her career success is unprecedented, winning over 400 awards during her singing and acting career, platinum selling albums, sell out concerts worldwide, and a name that is a known in almost every country on the planet. Her relationship, and subsequent marriage to R&B artist Bobby Brown was globally documented. A high-profile wedding, public displays of affection toward each other, fights, court appearances, and regularly documented, battle against drug addiction. The pair had a daughter together, Bobbi-Kristina, in 1993, now 18 years old the young lady was evidently and not surprisingly devastated by the untimely death of her mother, she was even said to have been briefly taken into a rehab and relaxation center. Whitney Houston was found dead in her hotel suite, on February 11, it has been reported that she was found in her bath tub. The cause of death is yet to be released. Her death came on the eve of the Grammy Awards, and became the main foocus of the evening, as the shocking news spread. A funeral was held for whitney a few days later.  Whitney’s now ex husband, arrived at the global superstars funeral, but when he demanded to be taken to his daughter, security alledgedly refused to take him near her, and he stormed out of the church before the ceremony even began, causing a media storm.

Whitey has now been laid to rest in Newark, New Jersey, next to her beloved father John Jr., gone but neer forgotten.

Born Whitney Elizabeth Houston, in Newark New Jersey , in 1963, her mother Cici, a gospel singer and her father John, an army serviceman, could neer have imagined what and who they had created. With a plethora of singers amongst her family including Dionne Warwick, her own mother, and her godmother, Darlene Love and life long family friend Aretha Franklin, it wasn’t a great surprise that Whitney was musical, but no one could ever have guessed the impact miss Houston would have on the world of entertainment.

Discovered by Clive Davis, in 1983, after a colleague of his at Arista Records saw her perform with her mother on stage, Davis was so impressed by Whitney’s vocals, and beautiful look, that he immediately offered her a worldwide record contract, and her debut album Whitney Houston, was a global hit.

the rest as they say is history, id be shocked if there was a person on this planet that didn’t know a Whitney song, her tracks are timeless and will stay on the radio waves forever.

Rest In Peace Whitney.

Harvey, claimed he had a secret relationship with Cheryl when she was an X Factor judge back in the winter of 2010, When eveyone was reporting that she was dating  DerekHough.   He tells the new issue of Now magazine: ‘There was a relationship and an attraction to each other’s aura…She’s a good girl.

I think someone’s been having you on mate..”  The singer then added: “#shedoesntdoemailsshedoesphonesex.”, she also asked if Harvey had ever heard of fake accounts !  Harvey concluded the Twitter argument by tweeting ‘Its funny how the hype has calmed down since I mentioned the emails. Where I come from we don’t snitch I’d rather die than sell my soul #simples’.

Regardless to who is telling the truth, the publicity won’t be doing Harvey any harm, as his new music is due to be released next month, he has a single due to be released in March, a collaboration with young new artist Lady Leshur.

Beyonce has spoken publicly about her new baby girl for the first time in an interview for Star Magazine.

The superstar singer talks about her feeling when the tot –Blue Ivy Carter– was born, how her husband Jay-z feels about his new born daughter, and she opens up about the security controversy surrounding their time at the hospital.

she told star magazine  “We are all great, we are just glad to be going home and starting this new  stage of our life. The hospital staff have all been so great, but we  were ready to go home and show our beautiful daughter where she will be  living.”
Beyonce admitted that it was “tight”, but that was for the safety of their daughter – there were many complaints from other parents were alledgedly kept waiting to see  their new born babies, as the security did not permit them to enter parts of the hospital, where their children were.

Beyonce insists that the new addition to her and Jay-z’s family will not be spoilt, with material things. “We are in a situation where we can give our child possessions, but the richest of children have a loving family and a place they can call home, ..”If a child has a loving family who cares for them, nurtures them, loves them and guides them through life, then they have everything they need. Plenty of rich kids are crying out for love, that’s all children really crave.”

An Auction on Ebay is said to selling water, that is allegedly from Tom Criuse‘s swimming pool,

The auction description reads;

‘There is a very limited supply of this special water. The  winning bidder will receive a 5×7 print of Tom swimming in the pool with Katie  Holmes by his side as a certificate of authenticity.

‘The bottle is hand painted and shows a cross to mimic the effect of a bottle of Holy Water. But this cross also bears four gold rays coming from behind, which can also be considered the symbol of Scientology.

‘Tom Cruise water can be used in rituals, potions, or perfumes. It can be  dabbed behind the ears or on the wrists for good luck. You can place some of it  around the hearth of your home  baptize your baby with it. The possibilities are endless.

‘Happy bidding!’

At last count, six people had bid.

The 110ml glass bottle was collected by a fan from a pool in Miami Beach,  Florida, on July 16 last summer.

So how far would you go to get a pice of celebrity culture, even if it is just water from their pool ? we all hear of celebrities auctioning off outfits or memorabilia for charitable causes, and the amount that has been spent is sometimes outrageous, but in the past some of the strangest things have been auctioned.  John Lennon’s TOOTH was auctioned off in November 2011 and went for a reported $30,000, but what is the buyer going to do with John Lennon’s, tooth ? and is it really worth that kind of money?

I guess some fans would go to great lengths to have a personal memento of their favorite star, but is it a step too far to purchase Scarlett Johansson used tissue? (in which she blew her nose) – which was sold for $2,075  to raise money for a good cause, or to be the proud owner of  Justin Bieber’s bangs, or left over breakfast?.

The Final straw in taking it too far must definitely be, the news that the ‘Death Bed’ of Michael Jackson – The King Of Pop –  will be auctioned off not to far in the distant future, how we ask ourselves can this item make anyone feel closer to the singer, or in any way moral?

we can all smile at the weird and wonderful array of items that have sold in the past, and see the passion in the people who buy them, but is a mans Death Bed, something that should be used to make a profit? and lets ask….who would actually buy it ?

Katy Perry has spoken out on twitter about the gossip revolving around her imminent Divorce from funny man Russel Brand.

It was announced recently that comedian hollywood actor Russell Brand, had filed for divorce from Katy Perry after just 17 months of marriage, and so far neither camps have revealed any more information than that, but now Katy has finally spoken out via her twitter account.

‘I am so grateful for all the love and support I’ve had from people around the  world. You guys have made my heart happy again,’ Katy tweeted – Concerning the gossip, I want to be clear that NO ONE speaks for me. Not a blog,  magazine, “close sources” or my family.

Katy’s parents are Evangelical preachers, and have told their congregation recently that they still love their daughter although they do not agree with her life choices.

It seems Katy wants to make i clear that she is still the headstrong woman who is responsible for her own actions, and stands by her own life choices, although it does seem from her tweet that she has been feeling very heart-broken since Brand filed for divorce.
