Cannes hasn’t been having great luck with not having jewels stolen lately. More
As you may remember from Monday, America’s Next Top Model contestant Renee Alway was arrested last month for “suspicion of burglary, fraud, possession of narcotics, forged bills, and committing a felony while on bail,” among other things. This is certainly sad, but nothing in there prepared me for how awful her mugshot was. More

Underwear thievery might seem like the kind of activity reserved for dirty old men and cartoon gnomes, but try telling that to the acquisitive teens whose activities formed the basis for book (and soon-to-be-released movie) The Bling Ring. As it turns out, these mostly female miscreants stole mad underwear. And not just any underwear: Miranda Kerr‘s underwear. More
If you, like me, have been following the developments in the Cleveland kidnapping case with shock and horror, here is another one. Police have found a 2004 letter in alleged kidnapper Ariel Castro‘s house that reads like a suicide note, and 19 Action News’ Scott Taylor has been tweeting excerpts from it. More
I recently did an interview in which I was asked how I became such a risk taker, and how other women can become more comfortable with risk.
I gave a long answer. Most of the time we hesitate to take risks, what we’re really afraid of isn’t jail or death: it’s embarrassment, rejection, and the feeling of failure. Those aren’t real things. Or at least you shouldn’t be cowed by them. They’re just feelings. I barely notice most of those feelings because I have a lot of projects going on, and I choose not to indulge unproductive feelings when I could instead be making future plans.
But the other part of my answer — well, I paused as I was saying it and wondered whether to keep saying it. I feel like much of my success has been contingent on doing things young women really shouldn’t do, or shouldn’t do alone. In polite society, we say, “Are you sure that’s safe?” What we really mean is, “You’re likely to get raped. Possibly murdered.”
I think about this every time I read a story about a musician who made a name for himself by traveling around the country and sleeping in his car. Women can’t really sleep in their cars. More
Only a sexy woman could commit such a sexy murder, right? More
Modern Crime: Spending the majority of your waking moments — which are precious few and grow fewer by the day; you only have so many days allotted to you, mortal woman — talking about cancelled television shows. Not even obscure or forgotten cancelled television shows; the same cancelled television shows everyone else talks about.
Modern Punishment: Spend a year wandering the mountains of the Western United States, tending to wild orchards and nursing small animals with broken legs back to health. More
This bill is just trying to protect women, okay? More
