So Women Can’t Be Bosses, Huh?

“Tess McGill” (“Working Girl”)

How’s this for a topic — “Why Women Can’t Be Bosses” according to the boys at Ask Men. Oh, okay fellas, we’ll bite. Paul Thompson kick starts his screed with a nod to the “leaps and bounds” women have made towards “fairness” in the workplace. (Like rallying against the “alleged” improper treatment that is sexual harassment!) Then he goes on to explain that the glass ceiling exists for an important reason and cites four reasons why women are “absolute train wrecks in positions of workplace authority.” Unfortunately, he doesn’t bother to include examples of this being true, though he does slide in the cliched “Hillary Clinton is a man” reference. Keep clicking to read Thompson’s arguments and my responses, alongside photos of some seriously kick ass female bosses in real life and in pop culture.

“The Real Housewives Of New Jersey”: Danielle’s Shady Past Is Revealed

So, the s**t hit the fan on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” last night, as Danielle’s seedy, coke-whorin’ past as “Beverly” was revealed and she pissed off all the women by taking the cha-cha too seriously at a dance class. Danielle first addressed rumors that she was a husband stealer, telling Jacqueline and Teresa that the rumors were BS, but then jumping on them for even thinking that it might be true. Danielle has got a point — for all this talk of loyalty, no one seems to have Danielle’s back and I kind of feel bad for her. Or I would, if she wasn’t so damn shady. And if she hadn’t put her paws all over delicious Albie. Keep reading »

Mariah Carey Blames 9/11 For The Failure Of “Glitter”

Mariah Carey has a new movie out, “Precious,” and what better an occasion for her to speak out (again) about her failed semi-autobiographical movie “Glitter”‘? This time she’s blaming (drum roll, please) September 11th! “That movie was released on September 11th, 2001—could there be a worse day for that movie to come out?” she says. This isn’t the first time Mariah blamed terrorists for ruining her party. A couple of years ago she said, “The talk shows needed something to distract from 9/11. I became a punching bag. I was so successful that they tore me down because my album was at number two instead of number one. The media was laughing at me and attacked me…’Glitter’ was ahead of its time.”

Sooo ahead of its time. Notice how Carey didn’t offer any love to the survivors and families who lost loved ones. How insensitive can you be? Um, it’s been eight years, no one saw your movie, get over it. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: What Did Paris Hilton Do To Piss Off Mr. Pointy Finger?

1) She pointed to his bald spot and said, “That is so not hot.”
2) Her makeout session with boyfriend Doug Reinhardt obscured his view of the stage during “Rock of Ages”.
3) Her Sidekick kept blowing up with texts during the big musical numbers.
4) None of the above, because we have no effing clue.

Playboy Changes Its Mind About Hate F**king Conservative Women

Playboy.com posted a story yesterday called “So Right It’s Wrong,” about the conservative women writer Guy Cimbalo wanted to “hate f**k”; it’s since been removed. After the story was posted, the blogosphere, particularly female bloggers, had a complete meltdown, with some calling for a boycott. Playboy took a kick to the balls and responded in an appropriately wimpy fashion by taking down the article. So what was so offensive? Our own Susannah Breslin writes over at Double X:

“It’s a listicle that eviscerates every conservative female that crossed Cimbalo’s radar as someone who was at least in some regard physically attractive and yet whose personal politics he found to be utterly loathsome. The list includes Michelle Malkin, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Laura Ingraham, and Peggy Noonan.

On Malkin: ‘Worse than f**king Ava Braun.’ On Ingraham: ‘Vagina dentata would be an improvement.’ On Noonan: ‘Imagine f**king your grandmother. Now imagine your grandmother coined the phrase ‘a thousand points of light.’ It’s worse than that.’”

Nine Happily Unmarried Hollywood Couples

Nicole Richie might be preggers with Joel Madden‘s second baby, but the pair is in no hurry to tie the knot. “We are going to do it because we want to, not because that’s what you do,” she said on Larry King Live last week. “We’re going to do it when the time’s right.”

“We already feel kind of married, you know?” added boyfriend Joel. “We feel like this is a real family and marriage, one day it will come.” [OMG! Yahoo!]

Well, I guess why buy the cow when you get the calves for free? It seems like lots of celebrities are putting off marriage these days. Here are our favorite notoriously unhitched celebrity couples.

Girl Talk: Jilted But Not (Majorly) Bitter

After my engagement ended, my tolerance for weddings was low. Very low. That first week spent on my couch in pure misery saw me turning my eyes away from any and all wedding references. The wedding book I was given by my almost-mother-in-law got hidden in the back of my closet, along with our engagement party invitations and, of course, my engagement ring (now out of sight in a locked safety deposit box!). Anything of a romantic nature in pop culture repulsed me, and for awhile all I watched was the news. It was depressing, just like me! Keep reading »
