Amelia McDonell-Parry

Born and raised in California, Amelia moved to NYC after graduating from the University of California at Santa Cruz. After toiling away at Interview, Rolling Stone and Maxim magazines, she made the move online and has been basking in the harsh glow of her laptop screen ever since. When she's not spending her days editing and writing (about topics as vast as feminism, Ryan Gosling, "Star Trek," and the latest D-list sex tape), Amelia is buying peonies, hanging with her dog Lucca and dreaming about her next vacation.

Summer is really great, but aren’t you sooo bored with all the nice weather and nature and crap? Yeah, we get it, it’s pretty out, now stop gloating you hussy season. I don’t need your vitamin D, sun. Give me artery-clogging movie-theater popcorn and one of those Coke slushies and I’m golden all year round. READ MORE »

Last night on the season finale of “16 & Pregnant,” Dr. Drew interviewed all six of the teens who gave birth in the show’s first season (it has been picked up for a second). Five out of the six girls ended up keeping their babies to raise, but it was the girl who… READ MORE »

Yesterday, I did an interview with CNN Live about Leonora Epstein’s article, “Automatic Online Dating Dealbreakers.” (You can watch it after the jump, if you’re so inclined, but please know the style department will be doing more about my hideous under-eye circles and lighting the next time around.) That same day, Julia Allison,… READ MORE »

This morning on “Today,” Matt, Meredith, and Al (do they even need last names anymore?) were introducing a segment about kids running around naked during the summertime. Meredith asked, “At what age does it become inappropriate?” and Matt, pausing to think for a sec, responded, “Sixteen?” Eww? Clip of the awkies moment above! READ MORE »

Last night on “So You Think You Can Dance,” Katie Holmes — yes, Mrs. Tom Cruise — performed a dance routine as an homage to Judy Garland and also to promote The Dizzy Feet Foundation, which provides art scholarships to children and teens.

It looks like Gerard Butler might have overly embraced his role in “The Ugly Truth” as a brash womanizer. Instead of denying rumors that he’s had affairs with his co-stars, he’s gladly fanning them! In an interview, Butler said: “That’s how I live my life. Conan asked me about [Jennifer] Aniston, who is my co-star… READ MORE »

Good morning! Here’s a stupid cute video of Wolfman Shaun Ellis teaching a wee lil’ baby wolf how to howl. I play this game with (my dog) Lucca all the time, but she just looks at me like I’m cray-cray. [via Buzzfeed] … READ MORE »

Everyone’s favorite sappy chick flick, “The Notebook,” is being turned into a musical. This troubles me. For starters, I am a fan of the movie, not the book by Nicholas Sparks, and am only a fan of the movie because Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams made the characters’ romance so believable (because, duh, they fell… READ MORE »

The trailer for Tim Burton’s “Alice In Wonderland” has finally come down the rabbit hole and it looks a-maaaazing. Johnny Depp, in particular, looks deliciously wicked, definitely channeling the same dark kookiness of his version of Willy Wonka. Only this time, we hope his brilliance is fully appreciated. With Wonka, he could not… READ MORE »
