From papyrus sales posters in ancient Egypt to town criers of the Middle Ages, from radio sponsorships to the Pop-Tarts “Crazy Good” campaign, advertising has grown and changed over the years, constantly adapting with methods to reach target audiences. This evolution has brought us to the category of advertisement web-shows. I have just spent the last hour watching “Romancing the Joan,” sponsored by Renuzit air fresheners and I feel like ...

When I was little, I'd constantly raid my mom’s closet to play dress up.  I loved draping myself in her fancy dresses, jewelry, and oversized shoes.  In honor of Mother’s Day this weekend, we’ve compiled a list of the top TV moms with the best outfits – the moms whose closets we'd have loved to raid. 1. Sophia Petrillo – Golden Girls Sophia taught us many things throughout the Golden Girls show, one being that you can never ... Read More
I’m not going to lie. When Rihanna took Chris Brown back I was not happy. In fact, I bordered on morally outraged. How could the girl who had me fantasizing about singing, "Want you to make me feel like I'm the only girl in the world" to the boy who was breaking my heart be so…stoopid? How could the star that millions of young girls idolize set such a bad example as to take a man who has abused her back? Easy. Rihanna is human, young, and (somehow) in ... Read More

Famously peeved funny lady Joan Rivers has a new source for her unbridled (and often hysterical) ire. This time, it’s the wholesale super store Costco that's under fire. What did the bulk supplier do to make the queen of mean so darn mad?  They’re not selling her book, I Hate Everyone...Starting with Me, due to some “offensive” content. Shame on you Los Angeles Costco! How dare you? The 79-year-old badass (who talks about her book in ... Read More
Joan Rivers has been making us laugh while criticizing everyone (and their mom) since the 1960’s. She’s made a career of calling the stars out on their appearance and poor fashion choices in the least delicate way possible. No one is safe—we all get it, it’s her shtick.  But isn’t it pretty hard to watch women criticize women so cruelly sometimes? It’s a never-ending cycle of “Is she too fat? Too skinny? Isn’t ...

On Monday night, comedian/actress Jane Lynch tried her hand at celebrity-interviewing when she filled in on Piers Morgan Tonight. Aside from making me wish she hosted a talk show on CNN instead of panders-to-women Piers Morgan, she interviewed Joan Rivers, and together (after Rivers admitted, of politicians, that she “hates them all”) they touched on certain issues in politics today. Specifically, the egregious amount of time politicians spend ... Read More
  Joan Rivers is a polarizing figure in popular culture. Some see her as a boundary-busting comedy pioneer whose tenure as guest host on The Tonight Show opened doors for every woman in the industry who came after her. Others simply regard her as a crass and elitist plastic-surgery casualty whose red-carpet diatribes and mean-spirited barbs have worn out their welcome. But whatever side of the fence you’re on, watching the startlingly intimate ... Read More
