I love this explanation for how she chose the title: “Why is this book called Bossypants? One, because the name ‘Two and a Half Men’ was already taken. And two, because ever since I became an executive producer of ’30 Rock,’ people have asked me, ‘Is it hard for you, being the boss?’ and ‘Is it uncomfortable for you to be the person in charge?’ You know, in the same way they say, ‘Gosh, Mr. Trump, is it awkward for you to be the boss of all these people?’ I can’t answer for Mr. Trump, but in my case it is not.” [ABC News]

  • Kim Kardashian is reportedly shopping for an apartment in Alpine, New Jersey, with boyfriend Kris Humphries. Obviously she should stop by Seaside Heights if she’s in the state, right? [TMZ]
  • Bethanny Frankel is getting her own talk show produced by the peeps who produce Ellen DeGeneres’ show. Will someone please explain to me why people find this woman so compelling? [Oh No They Didn’t!]

  • And speaking of Taylor, listen to her covering “White Blank Page” by Mumford and Sons for BBC radio. [Oh No They Didn’t!]
  • Supermodel Elle Macpherson will be the host of “Fashion Star,” the new NBC fashion reality show. Apparently its going to be a more downgrade version of “Project Runway,” with designers making clothes that the average women would wear. Meh. [Styleite]

  • A father in Georgia must cough up a $300 fine for tattooing “D.B” — short for “Daddy’s Boy” — on his son’s arm. It’s illegal to tattoo someone under the age of 18 in GA. This candidate for Father of the Year doesn’t even remember tattooing the letters on his kid because he was drunk. [Newser]

  • Why do animators feel the need to sex up female cartoon characters? [Crushable]
