Things are starting to heat up in Rosewood onÂ Pretty Little Liars as A continues her (his?) comeback! More
Well, now we feel terrible.
Yesterday we ran a post where we mentioned that we thought Joe Millionaire (Evan Marriott) was a terrible person because of and interview he gave years ago stating that he wanted a blond with a cute little bubble butt. Sometimes we just throw out vitriol. Then we got the following incredibly nice, self aware letter from him. Ugh! He is a person! Sometimes we forget reality stars are people! We are jerks. We told him the following letter changed our opinion of him, and that we think it will change yours, too. Though the goatee still isnât working for him. We stand by that. He explains: More
There was a lot going on during last night’s episode of Mad Men. The show has been on hiatus for over a year and fans were eagerly waiting to see where the characters ended up in 1967. But there was one thing noticeably missing: January Jones.
Chelsea Handler is on the latest issue of Redbook Magazine. Yes, you heard me right. Chelsea Handler. The same woman who said, âThere are two kinds of people I donât trust: people who donât drink and people who collect stickers.âOf course, she is right. That is just good common sense. But Redbook is a serious, grown-up womanâs magazine. I mean Michelle Obama was recently on the cover. Chelsea Handler likes to be known as a âDrunken Slut.â But the girl has a great career and she isnât pulling up the ladder behind her it sounds like. She said: âI read this cheesy quote once: âBlowing out someone elseâs candle doesnât make yours glow brighterâŠâWe women have to stick togetherâŠ Iâm very much about letting other people shine, because it makes us all shine brighter. I like having a fraternity. I like girls and boys together, misfits and underdogs â I love underdogs.â More
Anyone who’s still sore over Don Draper‘s abrupt rejection of the smart and beautiful Dr. Faye Miller in favor of his non-face-washing woman-child of a secretary will be happy to see that the two are going to hit some rough waters next season. Some new photos from the set of Mad Men show Don and Megan (ugh) having it out in front of (what else?) a Howard Johnson. Prediction: Don’s stupid marriage to stupid Megan is not long for this world.

Gee, thereâs been an awful lot of news about cancelled television shows this week, hasnât there? The first of the new fall shows are getting cancelled, shows that had been cancelled for years are suddenly coming back to life a la Frankensteinâs monster (appropriate, given that itâs Halloween season)âŠ thereâs just so much activity! So you know what? Letâs give those cancelled televisions something to do with themselves. In fact, letâs get them drunk. Because boy, wonât that be hilarious? More
Creepy Things That Seem Real But Arenât is a series that explores modern urban legends, bringing you a new tale each week.
Ghost Hunters, Most Haunted, Paranormal State, Ghost AdventuresâŠ These days, television is full of paranormal programming that purports to track ghostly phenomena, and each and every one of them swears up, down, left, and right that theyâre the real deal. But in 1992, these types of shows were far from the norm. So when the BBC decided to air a 90-minute special on Halloween that claimed to be a live, on-air investigation of ongoing poltergeist activity at a house in Northolt, a neighborhood in west London, the publicâs reaction was a great deal less jaded than our own would have beenâespecially given how the tragic events of the night unfolded. The program was called GHOSTWATCH, and it would go down in history as one of the BBCâs biggest mistakes. More
This season is one of unprecedented visibility for shows created by and starring women. Unfortunately, most of those shows are extremely disappointing. More
Over at Slateâs Browbeat blog, this seasonâs crop of Whitney Cummings-penned pilots and their attendant vagina jokes have raised the question âsince when can you say vagina on TV?â Wait a second. Why would you not be able to say vagina?
Of course you can say vagina on TV. Itâs an anatomical term. You can say stomach. You can say spleen. Therefore, you can say vagina. Itâs not a dirty word. Cunt is a dirty word. Pussy is a dirty word. Twat is a dirty word. Vagina is just a fact. Ladies have vaginas. Itâs how it is. More
Is Mean Girls one of your favorite movies? If so, then Suburgatory just might be your new favorite TV show. The show, which follows Manhattan teen Tessa (Jane Levy, doing her best Emma Stone) after her father, George (Jeremy Sisto from Clueless, apparently now old enough to have a teenage daughter, which is information that makes me want to die), moves their two-person family from Manhattan to the suburbs.

In this series, comedian Leila Cohan-Miccio watches the new female-centered shows and evaluates how realistic their portrayals of women actually are. Up now: Unforgettable. More
