Over at The Hairpin, Hallie Kiefer has written a post about how offended she got when someone mistook her for a pregnant woman on the subway. While I can see how this might be taken as an insult, I think she is overlooking the obvious benefits of being mistaken for a pregnant woman on public transportation.
First of all, do you know how hard it is to get a seat on a crowded subway car? And while I’d never try to scam an actual pregnant woman out of a seat on the train, there are plenty of people who don’t need all the space they take up on the subway. And pretending to be pregnant on the subway is one of the most reliable ways to get people to treat you better on public transportation. More
Last night’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills got a little heated – it only took five weeks into the season for the housewives to start yelling at each other! But even with that slow burn, the girls are finally realizing everyone loves a good cat fight. This week they all jetted off to New York for a little musical comedy and dramatic screaming. Won’t you join the Crushable Barbie Repertory Theater as we recreate the most exciting moments of this week’s episode? More
In August, Modern Family‘s Jesse Tyler Ferguson made a video claiming that he was going to be marrying Alec Baldwin next year. It took awhile for the 30 Rock star to respond, but he’s finally done so with a video of his own, courtesy of FightBackPac.org, a group organized to overthrow the New York State senate law against same-sex marriage. Alec’s got something on his mind. Want to hear it? Of course you do. (Imagine Alec Baldwin saying that last part, and continue on.) More
One night about three years ago — back when I lived in Los Angeles — I was driving home from a friend’s house fairly late. I was going about 70 on the freeway and was 10 minutes from home when the white van in front of me slowed down and put on its hazards. By all practical logic, the van was probably about to overheat or had just popped a tire. But my reaction? “Oh Shit! It’s one of those crazy highway snipers you always see on shows like CSI and Law & Order. He’s waiting for me, a random passerby, in his van at 2 in the morning, and he’s going to MURDER me!”
I went into a full-on panic and considered stopping right there on the 101 freeway. Deciding that action would probably result a different form of death, I held my breath and ducked. Crossing my fingers and fighting tears, I drove past the van. And then… Silence. If the guy was a sniper, he sure didn’t want crazy old me as his target. More
Sexts From Last Nights – Lauren Leto, who runs the very funny Tumblr Texts From Last Night, has some big problems with New York guys, who she calls “f*cking full of sh*t.” But asked about NYC’s incestuous media scene? “There’s good people to meet there.” Just not dudes, apparently.
