Today’s Lady News: “Daria” Is Coming Back To MTV

  • La, la, la, la, la! “Daria” is coming back to MTV’s “Retro Mania” mornings from 9 a.m. until noon for six weeks through August. Unfortunately, the other part of this “retro” bargain is “The Hills” and “Laguna Beach” are coming back, too. Daria and Jane would not approve. [I do! -- Editor] [After Ellen]
  • OH NO YOU DID NOT: a Republican male representative in Michigan said those two female legislators who were banned from speaking for using the word “vagina” said “it’s like giving the kid a time out for a day.” What infantilization. [Think Progress]
  • A married lesbian employee of St. John’s Medical Center in New York has filed a lawsuit against the hospital claiming her wife is entitled to the same benefits as other spouses. However, St. John’s is self-insured and therefore protected by federal regulations. Under the Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as between a man and a woman, the hospital may argue it’s allowed to refuse the lesbian wife equal benefits. [New York Times] Keep reading »

Bristol's Bar Fight

I know you had better things to do last night than watch the premiere of “Bristol Palin: Life’s A Tripp,” so I watched Bristol’s reality show for you! The first 20 minutes or so tried somewhat admirably to depict her life as a young, single mom whose baby daddy is out of the picture — although I say “somewhat admirably” because most single moms probably don’t live in their own huge apartment and have piles of abstinence-only lecture fees to throw up in the air like Scrooge McDuck.

The part that really had me screaming at the TV? This video above where Bristol gets in a bar fight with some gay, sexist douchebag who called her mom a “whore” and then she calls her friend crying because this heckler was just upset about the family’s position on [snotty tone of voice] gay marriage. SO IRRATIONAL, right? It’s hard to feel bad for anyone here.

Kathie Lee Teaches K-Stew How To Smile

Once upon a time, the highest paid actor or actress in Hollywood was someone who had a bit more gravitas than “Twilight.” But Kristen Stewart has topped Forbes magazine’s list of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood, cashing in with $34.5 million in the past year.

This doesn’t sit well with Kathie Lee Gifford, who just doesn’t understand why the Kristen won’t smile. Join the club, KLG. And she even goes so far as to offer smiling lessons, although I think we can agree Tyra does it better. Now, what’s this about K-Stew’s “back end”?
