In this second installment of imagined scenarios there is no actual food on the table. The Madame of the house has called an emergency meeting.
"He is doing WHAT? Running for my old job as mayor of Wasilla? On a reality TV show?" Sarah fumes. "How could you not know this? Did he not mention it while you were together?"
"Mom, gaah. D'uh. You know we weren't together together. That was just for the paycheck from People. I can't live on what I make at that medical ... Read More
Barbie and I have a very complex relationship. The angry feminist side of me always wants to say, "Eff you, Barbie! I don't have to be pink and pretty and have big boobs and a tiny waist! I don't even look like that! Who does?!?!?" The positive feminist side (and, uh, childhood me) wants to tell the other side, " No, no, no...you don't understand...she's changing! For the better!" And then they debate, and no one ever wins.
Regardless of this, I still think this ... Read More
Uh oh. Looks like California Gurls are no longer good enough for Russell Brand. And by that I mean, I'm sure he and Katy Perry are fine. Russell just tweeted this pic from the set of their remake of Arthur with the words, "At last. A bath from Helen Mirren. Never has getting clean been more dirty." It obviously worked to get the word out because I had no clue about the movie until this moment. Oh well, I guess everywhere's just a Love Ranch to Helen now.

But I can't help but be excited about the new Harry Potter movie coming out in November.
It helps that the HP 7 trailer is super awesome looking (Hermione's jacket is a do-want), Team Starkid just came out with a Very Potter Sequel (Rita Skeeter and Dolores Umbridge have never been so cool), and Potter Puppet Pals now has their own channel with three new videos (sweet!)
Oops. My inner fan-girl is showing. Have some videos and enjoy the utter ... Read More
It's official...one of our favorite BUST-y ladies, Diablo Cody, has sold a pilot to Fox! So far, the only thing anyone knows is that it is called The Breadwinner and it's a comedy. I can only imagine where it could possibly go from there. My mind is running laps with a title like that.
Also also also, she is in the process of working on a repeat performance with Juno director Jason Reitman which will be a film starring Charlize Theron (nice!!) called Young Adult. ... Read More

Check out this fantastic vid of Tina Fey circa 1980something. Ain't she sweet? I wonder if Mutual Savings Bank tells people they helped give a famous star her start! Much thanks to Perez Hilton for posting this gem![image: ... Read More
Here's a little something to brighten your Monday morning...and the rest of the day as well if it stays a little too bleh for your tastes.
I saw this commercial recently and I gotta admit, it was pretty exciting to see young girls being represented doing whatever their little hearts desire. I teared up a bit, no joke.(I understand we could get into a whole debate about marketing and targeting, etc...but let's just enjoy this moment, shall we?)
You need to a ... Read More

Lizzy Caplan, who played a vampire blood junkie in True Blood last season and is a co-star of the hilarious Party Down, has signed on to produce a TV adaptation of Julie Klausner's memoir "I Don't Care About Your Band" on HBO. Klausner, Salon's Lady Business columnist, has compared her memoir and the TV show to Sex and the City without Carrie's implausible lifestyle of a freelancer with her own apartment and $40 thou worth of shoes. The show sounds like it will ... Read More

Kristen Schaal has to be one of the cutest, funniest women in comedy today and if you haven't seen her interview on the Letterman Show, watch it now. Not only was she great as the creepy super fan Mel in "Flight of the Conchords," but she has also had some parts in a couple other movies, totaling to around 10 minutes as she says, including her upcoming role in "Dinner for Schmucks." Her adorable voice, Pee-Wee Herman-like entrance and earnest attitude ... Read More
