Name: Chen Wei-yih
Occupation: Office Worker
Known for: Committing herself to Number One by proposing… to herself. Chen wants to puncture the perception of single women as something to look down on–so at age 30, having not yet met anyone else she wants to spend her life with, she has decided to marry her own bad self.
For the 30-year-old Taipei resident, there will be no Prince Charming, no tuxedoed groom. In an effort to defy the traditional Asian perception of single, independent women as failures, Chen says she will marry herself.
“Age 30 is a prime period for me,” Chen is quoted by Reuters as saying. “My work and experience are in good shape, but I haven’t found a partner, so what can I do?”

Sheryl WuDunn sets a really unreasonable standard for all of us mere humans. First of all, she’s brilliant. A decorated writer, educator and businesswoman, she is no stranger to success. Then there’s the pioneer aspect of her career: she’s the first Asian American person to have ever won a Pulitzer Prize. She’s a dedicated wife and partner (hubby is writing partner Nicholas Kristof). And she happens to focus on important stuff, like China, and worldwide female empowerment.
Surely she must be a stiff, right? Wrong. She’s not only likeable, but dang adorable when she opens her mouth. (See her most recent interview, where she talks about new book Half the Sky with Stephen Colbert, here).
So what’s wrong with WuDunn? Well, nothing. Except that in addition to all of these qualities, she also happens to possess one of ravishing beauty, making her just perfect. So there you go.
Here’s the story on the lady pictured below, Mek Wok Kundor:
- She’s Malaysian.
- She’s 107 years old.
- She has been married 22 times (so far).
- She doesn’t kiss and tell–Kundor won’t talk about her former husbands (whom she has lost to both death and divorce) or her kids.
- She is currently estranged from her husband (#22), who is 37.
- She separated from the 37-year-old dude because he had to go into rehab.
- Worried that he may return from rehab sober and itchin’ for a younger chick, Kundor has her sights set on a man 57 years her junior–a potential husband #23.
- She plans to visit her hubby (Possible reconnection?) in rehab, which is in Kuala Lumpur. She just needs a ride.
- I couldn’t possibly make this up.
- Something tells me (maybe it’s the dozens of hubbies, love of younger dudes, and certainty that she’ll soon find a brand new lover) that Mek Wok Kundor is an incredible lay. You may not like to read that, and I may not like to write it, but neither of us can deny that it’s probably true.
- Add it all up, and this bitch is the sexiest, baddest bitch in the East! Don’t hate a player!!
It was reported this week that Russell Simmons has agreed to pay $40k a month in child support (that’s $20k per progeny) to the fabulous house of Kimora Lee, who is retaining sole legal and physical custody of their kids. This arrangement will be in place until each child reaches the age of 19½.
$40k a month! Just to keep those kids well-fed and fabulous!
Sheezus. Suddenly, Kimora’s eight-year marriage to that creepy old dude sounds waaaaaaaaaaaaay the heck more worth it.
A 107 year-old woman in China who has never married announced recently that she now wants to tie the knot, ideally with a fellow centenarian. Wang Guiying told the Chongqing Commercial Times that she was frightened of getting married when she was younger, because she always saw her uncles and other men go all Ike Turner on their wives. She lived on her own and worked as a farmer until she was 74 and too weak to work in the fields, at which point she went to live with a nephew. But that arrangement has become less and less ideal.
“My nephews and nieces are getting older and their children are already tied up with their own families and I am becoming more and more of a burden,” she said.
Hmm. Sounds less hopelessly romantic than totally guilt-trippy. We wouldn’t exactly call public shaming the best man-trap, and normally we’d say a marriage with such a Hardass Asian Biddy is doomed, but something tells us that union, if it ever happens, isn’t going to last, um, that long anyway.
(I KNOW. WE’RE EVIL.)
If these aren’t the cutest wedding photos we’ve ever seen, we’re not sure what are! Many, many, many congratulasians go out to George Takei and his handsome hubby Brad Altman on their recent nuptials! We foresee a future of lots and lots of super-duper happy years spent together in domestic bliss (although, speaking from personal experience, we must insert the caveat that sometimes domestic life is just “super” and not always so “duper”).
James Gandolfini, 46, and Deborah Lin, 40, got hitched this weekend in her hometown of Honolulu, Hawaii. Three teams of Chinese lion dancers performed at the reception. Congratulasians, James and Deborah!
Gandolfini, who was married once before, has his work cut out for him. While they’re both in their forties, she looks ten years younger and smoking hawt, while he looks…like Tony Soprano. Dude seriously needs to hit the gym and the derm before people start mistaking his bride for his adopted daughter from China.
Happy 34th birthday to to Hideki Matsui, oh ye of the golden glove and bat! This is your first year as a married man and your last year in the lovely “early thirties”… live it up!
