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.

“If I was Brandi, I wouldn’t be blabbing to the media. Instead, I’d get in my car, go to the nearest glory hole, kick the d**k out of LeAnn’s husband’s mouth and promise him a vintage Bob Mackie Cher doll to join forces.

To be honest, for the first time since my breakup, I have been enjoying… READ MORE »

A Tibetan man named Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche has earned the title of “the happiest man in the world.” But how did he get that way? Rinpoche says he suffered from anxiety when he was a kidlet, but cured himself through meditation.

Did everyone watch Lindsay Lohan’s TV movie “Labor Pains” last night? I did not, as I was wrapped up in another episode of “The World’s Smallest Children” on Discovery Health (which you must watch, as it is utterly fascinating) and then went to bed early. But apparently, in the movie, Lindsay basically plays… READ MORE »
