Hey, look: it’s another peaceful morning chez Horvath-Sackler—you know, cutting your lover’s hair and weaving it into a cute little love-rug, like happy couples do. Suddenly, Adam’s sister stumbles in, having barely escaped the clutches of an abusive boyfriend, and lady is clearly mid-psychotic episode. All signs point to changing the locks, but Hannah, for some reason, chooses this moment to be compassionate. Sure, she can ... Read More

It was a simple question posed by an article on clutchmagonline.com that spurred 28-year-old actor/writer/director Issa Rae into action: “Where’s the black version of Liz Lemon?” Rae realized she needed to bring a character she’d been forming in her mind to life before someone else did, so in 2011, she launched a Web series she both wrote and starred in, The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl. During its two super popular seasons, Rae’s character J ... Read More

I don’t watch reality television expecting intellectual stimulation. I enjoy the drama and theatrics of women living a lavish lifestyle that I can’t afford (at least right now). I heartily laugh at the witty one-liners the ladies spew in confessionals. I don’t care if most of it is staged; it’s entertaining as hell. With 2.5 million viewers in its first week, Bravo’s latest show “Blood, Sweat, and Heels” proves I’m ... Read More

The rumors are true-mors. Finally, after nine years, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences finally got their act together and decided to bring back Ellen DeGeneres to host the 80th Academy Awards which will broadest live on Sunday, March 2.Since I have apparently been living under a rock for the few months, I was surprised (as I hope some of you were, or else this post is redundant) by the new promo pics for the 2014 Oscars showing DeGeneres ...

The beloved sitcom “How I Met Your Mother” sparked outrage this week with an episode that featured three white stars (Colbie Smulders, Alyson Hannigan, and Josh Radnor) dressed as masters of the “Slap of a Million Exploding Suns,” the episode’s central comic conceit. Oh, and the actors donned what many are calling "yellowface," dressing up as stereotypical Asian individuals for laughs.
With the recent outrage over ... Read More

The post holi-daze body hangover is really no fun, I must say. Too many sweets, too much booze, and too little self-discipline is not a recipe for success of any kind. But you know what? #NoRegrets. Life is short, and eating butter cookies all day for 2 weeks straight is only acceptable during the most wonderful time of the year.
When we leave the holidays behind, we are, without fail, welcomed into the New Year with the annual Month of Body-Shaming, in ... Read More

It looks like everyone's favorite tight rope walker, Janelle Monae, will be dancing and singing through the beloved sets of Sesame Street. We love this former BUST cover girl, and we're kinda losing our minds with excitement!
In this great behind the scenes clip, we see Monae singing "The Power of Yet," a song that teaches kids and adults alike the importance of perseverance, with cast favorites like Big Bird, Ernie and Cookie Monster. There is even a ... Read More

Way before she was a writer for The Office, the star of her own show, and your dream best friend, Mindy Kaling was just Mindy Chokalingam, a Dartmouth student who hated dorm life and loved A Capella singers. But she was always funny, as we just found out with the help of this Tumblr account posting scans of her student comic strip, Badly Drawn Girl. Full of collegiate advice about everything from choosing dining halls to crushing on your gay friends, ... Read More
