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
I’m not one to give a [insert animal body part] about many professional playoffs, if any at all. I do admit that while living in “America’s Dairyland” (a.k.a Wisconsin) a couple of years ago, I may have occasionally gushed over Aaron Rodgers like the rest of my fellow Cheeseheads and/or called the Super Bowl the Ultimate Grand Supreme, but in all honestly being attentive to anything but the half-time show during the NFL Super Bowl was and ...

Girls premiered last night!! So, let’s talk about it, because we're girls! Er, women. Ladies? Oh, for the love of Pete, let’s just stare at Julianna Margulies’s Golden Globes look for at least 30 seconds because it is the best thing.
Feeling better? Me too. Onward!
The sun rises on our four protagonists: Hannah’s comfortably entwined with Adam, Shoshanna’s extracting herself from a random’s bunk bed (don’t ... Read More

Whatever be your thoughts on HBO's Girls (and if you're like everyone else on the internet, you have a lot of thoughts) – Lena Dunham and her merry band of dysfunctional twentysomethings return to the small screen this Sunday, at 10 p.m. We've been warned to expect a naked female body or two; accordingly, one loudmouthed sadist has already raised a stink.
Regardless: if you like Girls, perhaps you do so because the show's nouveau-mumblecore writing ... Read More

So perhaps you've already heard: SNL – that cliquey comedian's mecca – is set to debut a brand new cast member in the coming weeks. And...wait for it...she's a black woman! GASP! We've already popped the champagne, and not just because fresh face Sasheer Zamata represents merely the fifth African American female to appear on the show throughout its thirty-eight year run. And not “just because” a diverse cast of comics indubitably creates a wider gamut ... Read More

Or a Rose? Or a Sophia?
It's crazy to think it's been almost 30 years since a group of retirees stole our hearts with their crass jokes and catchy theme song. But one question has been plaguing fans for years.
WHICH GOLDEN GIRL AM I???
It's true. Way before "Sex and the City" graced our celluloid screens, we had four other sassy ladies that made us wonder if our personalities leaned more towards that of our beloved kind and ditzy character or her ... Read More

Have you ever found yourself watching a celebrity interview and thinking, "This is nice and all, but it could really use a little more humorously uncomfortable personal space violations"? Well, wish no more, because Tig Notaro's new Entertainment Weekly interview webseries has all that and more. "Up Close With Tig Notaro," which debuted this Monday, finds the comedian and guests lying on top of each other as they chat away about everything from toothpaste ... Read More
Thank goodness Saturday Night Live is finally listening to the national demand for representation of female comedians of color. In addition to adding the great artist Sasheer Zamata to the cast, the series has added two talented black women comedians, LaKendra Tookes and Leslie Jones, to its writing staff.
SNL took serious note of the women during their recent auditions, which featured minority women exclusively, snatching them up for two ... Read More
