This year, the four major TV networks — ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX — picked up 69 new shows between them, and hardly any of them were created by women.

The New York Times ran a piece yesterday offering suggestions on how we can all make our V-Day experiences a little more, ahem, risqué than cheap champagne. Keep reading »

Blind Item: Which Reality Star Got Tossed From A Jersey Club?

It’s a dreary winter Thursday — let’s play the blind item guessing game!

This reality star got ejected from a New Jersey nightclub on New Year’s Eve after imbibing a little too much, and getting a little too jerky. Upon the unceremonious tossing, he/she started shouting, “Don’t you know who I am?”

So many fame-headed celebs, and so many choices. I may not be famous, but at least I can hold my liquor. Who do you think got tossed on New Year’s? Keep reading »
