Today’s Lady News: Back In 1938, Disney Only Allowed Women To Trace

  • Back in 1938, women weren’t allowed to contribute in the creative process to bring Disney cartoons to the big screen. Check out the rejection letter one woman received when she applied for the company’s trained school, in which she was told she was only eligible to be a tracer. [BuzzFeed]
  • A food writer wonders why so many (er, all?) so-called “girly” drinks are sickly sweet. Good question! I’m a chick and Cosmos and Appletinis make me gag. [The Atlantic]
  • The editor of lady blog The Gloss thinks it’s cool that Lady Gaga made a video about repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” but isn’t stoked that the singer asked pervy photographer Terry Richardson to direct.

This “Save Sally” T-Shirt Doesn’t Exist — Yet

Oof, last night’s episode of “Mad Men” was a bit of a heart-breaker, especially for sweet, rebellious, misunderstood Sally Draper. All I want is for Don to let her come live with him, or for her mom to suddenly stop being an evil word-that-rhymes-with-runt. I want to put my arm around Sally and tell her, “Don’t worry, sugar, someday you’re going to rule the world and this rotten time in your life will be but a memory.” Since I can’t do that, I mocked up a T-shirt that sums up my support for Sally. Just gotta get it made. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: I Saw My Ex In An eHarmony Ad

I was sitting on my couch last night, watching a crappy movie on Comedy Central, when a familiar voice came on the TV. I looked up and felt queasy. It’s the guy I dated who caused me to stop dating altogether for the past five months.

LeAnn Rimes’ Ex Denies That Age Was An Issue In Split

“Age had very little to do with why we got divorced. I was very content and satisfied. I put myself on hold to funnel all my creative energy into her career and our marriage. I was willing to make the sacrifices necessary to have a successful marriage and further her career. I knew, and know, her better than anyone in this world… I was blindsided and shocked that she of all people would do this to the closest person in her life.”

– Dean Sheremet on ex-wife LeAnn Rimes’ assertion that their split (and her cheating) was due to them getting married so young and drifting apart. You know, I’ve long thought — along with the rest of the blogosphere — that Dean was, um, a friend of Dorothy, but the fact that he’s so miffed about their split (as opposed to it being something they decided on together) makes me think I was wrong. Maybe they really were in love and she broke his heart. Sad face. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »
