One of the things that seemed nicest about NBA star Jason Collins‘ coming out was the fact that everyone seemed incredibly supportive. It was not always such. More
When I first read that two dogs had gotten married in a $750 ceremony, I legitimately thought, “That is the cheapest wedding I’ve ever heard of!” Then I remembered that these were not people. These were dogs. I don’t know why they were concerned that if their children were bastards they would not properly inherit property (that is the point of weddings, yes?) but I guess that was sensible of them. I don’t know what they have. They could have really good chew toys. More
As Mother’s Day is coming up (this Sunday, buy flowers) you’re probably going to happen across a lot articles about whether or not you are “becoming your mother.” If this is something you are concerned about, I have some good ideas for you.

I know that as we are looking at this amazing picture we are all probably thinking the same thing and that thing is “Fuck Audrey Hepburn. I look squinty and crazy in every single photo.” Fortunately, I’ve got some theories on how to look great in photos, based on the way Audrey Hepburn poses for them, whether she is young or old. More
A while ago, we figured out “What your favorite engagement ring says about you” and, let’s be honest, what we really figured out was that I have the best taste. Today we’re going to figure out what your favorite wedding dress says about you.

Good news! There’s a set of ’Smart PJs‘ that will read your child a bedtime story for you. More
Well, I’ve been anticipating The Great Gatsby for a really long time, and I guess that did not work out for me. Not even a little bit. So what historical epic do I have to look forward to, now? The Butler. The story traces the life of Eugene Allen (Forest Whitaker) who was butler at the White House for 40 years (through 8 presidents). Oprah plays his wife. And, as Jezebel points out, she slaps someone! Look! More
Apparently, the reason the Abercrombie and Fitch will not make larger sizes is… because they really do not like larger people, very much. They certainly don’t want them wearing their brand. I wish I were joking on this one. According … More
Look, when I went into a screening of The Great Gatsby at The Ziegfeld yesterday, I wanted to like Gatsby more than anyone. I’ve been tweeting the novel in its entirety every night for the last three years. And I am sure I would have loved it, if the Jay Gatsby Baz Luhrmann created and Leonardo DiCaprio portrayed was not such an absolutely relentless jerk. More
Sometimes I look at pictures of Maria Callas and I just marvel at her incredible beauty. The lady was stunning, you know. I mean, not astonishing in a “pretty blonde suntanned” way, but gorgeous in that you could look at her face endlessly and always be fascinated. The contours! Those eyes! I look again, and think she was very lucky, and then I remember that this is a woman who swallowed a tapeworm and probably had one of the unhappiest lives possible
Great cheekbones, though.
And a spectacular voice.
Sit up straight! Like a lady! Or you are going to die.
