Tina Fey and Steve Carell are co-producing “Mail Order Groom,” a flick about a desperate single woman who brings an Eastern European husband with her home to the States, The Hollywood Reporter reports. The script is based on an idea by Fey’s husband, Jeff Richmond, and written by a group of four men. But what we want to know is whether the prince and princess of NBC’s Thursday night lineup will be starring in it, too? I sure hope so—Steve Carell and Tina Fey are smart enough to understand the mail-order marriage business isn’t especially funny-ha-ha. The mail-order bride trade is a pretty nasty business—it oftentimes dupes young women who’re just looking to support themselves and their families. Sorry to be a wet blanket but that’s a real-life fact, you know? Unfortunately, THR called a Fey-Carell pairing “a dicey proposition” because they are both so busy with their TV shows and their comedy, “Date Night,” which comes out in the spring. Alas, the fate of “Mail Order Groom”—and whether it’s actually funny or just trés uncomfortable—will be one to watch. [The Hollywood Reporter] Keep reading »
Some might say a lacy teddy or a feather tickler is more of a gift for him than for me—selfish, even. But I love sexy holiday gifts. Not only am I a little greedy when it comes to my lingerie drawer, but I love the reminder that my guy thinks I’m a sex goddess!
That said, I get why some guys are afraid to shop for lingerie. The best sexy-gift shopping occurs through interpreting another person’s fantasies; the gift should really reflect the way the woman sees herself in bed, not the way the man sees his lady. If she’s classy, then don’t go klassy. In my mind I’m burlesque star Dita Von Teese in bed, so I’ll be bewildered, to say the least, by a present in the style of Boob Job McGee, Tara Reid.
A little skittish about how Naughty Santa should stuff his stocking? I’m here to help you, boys! Some ideas of “sexy” holiday gifts not to give, after the jump. Keep reading »
I’m a big ol’ Ani DiFranco fan, but even I’ll admit that song lyrics about feminist stuff don’t inspire a lot of catchy head-bopping. Check out this video of singer Nellie McKay, though, who shows off her lyrical ability—as well as mad ukelele skillz!—in “Mother Of Pearl,” a pretty funny song about feminism. Lyrics that’ll make you giggle, after the jump … Keep reading »
“Women like to see another kind of sex symbol that doesn’t fit into the blonde, tanned, California beach babe beauty. I can never fit into that role, so I think there are other women like me that say ‘no, me neither’…You can put on red lipstick and put on black gloves and you can curl your hair and play dress-up. Then if you’re tired of it you can just get rid of it. It is not like you have to go to a tanning salon and do all these things to make yourself a certain way, it’s something you can try on and leave.”

Blogger Lauren Leto, whoever you are, I love you. Your snarky list describing different authors and the people who read them made Amelia’s and my morning. Who reads Jodi Picoult? “Your mom when she’s at her time of the month.” Emily Griffin? “Women who give their boyfriend marriage ultimatums.” Sylvia Plath? “Girls who keep journals.” Yes, indeed! In the spirit of your list, I’ve composed my own, based on music … Keep reading »
I’ve been able to hold my liquor since college. I drank too much and then imbibed an illegal substance I’d be ill-advised to mention by name here and ended up freaking out at a friend’s party, needing to be taken home and put into bed to ride it off. None of my friends or roommates had much fun that night.
I’ve gotten drunk since then, sure. But that nasty experience was the last time I galloped full speed ahead over my limit. And it was certainly the last time I drank so much I needed other people to take care of me. Keep reading »
