In the summer of 2009 Diane Schuler drove for two miles on the wrong side of the Taconic State Parkway, and crashed into an oncoming SUV, killing herself and seven others, including one of her children and three of her nieces. At the time of the accident, Diane was found to have a blood-alcohol content of .19% , more than double the legal limit, and a high level of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana.
The only survivor is Schuler’s five-year-old son, who ... Read More

Love Etc., a charming documentary to be released July 1st in New York, follows five stories of New Yorkers at very different stages in their romantic lives. Inspired by the diversity of the lines of couples at the New York City Hall Marriage Bureau (which are about to get even more diverse, hooray!), Executive Producer Jonathon Tisch wanted to document this “microcosm of the world” in a film that anyone can relate to.
On the youthful end of ... Read More

Margaret Cho is very, very funny. She is not, however, all that funny on the phone. At least not with me, when she calls from Atlanta one weekday afternoon. She's thoughtful, and sort of calm, and very polite. So naturally I think, oh God, it's me. I'm killing Margaret Cho's sense of humor. But then I remember that part of what people love about Cho, aside from her funny faces and ... Read More

In the past few weeks, the TV networks have revealed the new shows that they'll be adding to their fall lineups. One thing that's been quite noticeable is that there are way more shows coming out this fall that are about women than, well, maybe since forever. And of those shows, two of them, on two different networks, are associated with comic Whitney Cummings. One, "Whitney", is a comedy that stars, and is about, Whitney Cummings. The other, which Cummings is ... Read More

I love drag. I always have; when I was about five years old I apparently watched the classic drag movie The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert so often that the tape of the VHS wore out. Now, 16 years later, I watch just about everything online, so there’s no problem if I want to watch the same thing over and over, like I’ve done with the first season of “Rupaul’s Drag U.”
But soon there will be a new batch of women ... Read More

Watch this adorably pooped sea lion struggle his way through a Wednesday. I think this little lazy guy is my spirit animal. I may collapse and refuse to get up on my way to the printer. Push on little sea lion! We're gonna make it!

In its third season, French police drama Engrenages, known as Spiral to English-speaking viewers, is another gritty police drama teeming with all the usual installations: murder, drugs, corruption, sex, violence, but with one kick-ass leading female character: police captain Laure Berthaud.
Newly instated as France’s newest pinup, Caroline Proust’s character Berthaud doesn’t wear makeup, doesn’t wash her hair and wears the same ... Read More

If you care about RuPaul’s Drag Race at all then get ready to get jealous boogers…I met the queens of Season 3, well some of the queens, at the press event before the finale! I got so close to my girl Alexis “BAM BAM BAM” Mateo that I could see the contour make-up stripes down her nose. First, I must apologize for being late with this post since everyone knows Raja took the crown by now. I had to wait until I could watch the last episode ... Read More

Before The Real World, Horrible Housewives or Jersey Shore Jerks, there was An American Family. Back in the early 70’s, the idea of reality TV was born when a documentary filmmaker decided to ask the Loud family from Santa Barbara California, if he could film their daily lives and air it on PBS. Anyone who grew up in the 70s will remember the long, sometimes fascinating, sometimes boring, grainy episodes of American Family that aired, and the two characters ... Read More
