cute butt photo

I’ve never been a woman who thought about my figure and how to flatter it. From puberty onward, I luckily had a slim frame and an hourglass figure that made dressing easy-peasy. I could literally wear — and eat — anything that I wanted.

I was, I realize, that bitch you hate.

Then, around age 23, that all changed. I suppose it was my metabolism slowing down: I began to gain weight for the first time in my life and it all seemed to be concentrated on my butt.  Jeans, skirts and dresses stopped fitting around my belly, hips and ass. I swear you won’t believe me, but I remember sitting in an office chair one day and realizing my butt had gotten cushier! Twenty-three and 24 were hard ages for me to begin with because I struggled with a nasty bout of depression; my sudden, prepubescent-ish awkwardness with my body changing became a nasty icing on the cake.  Keep reading »

“I find it really interesting that people think that, like, in seasons three and four, she’s become unlikable because she’s become more independent. Everybody liked Betty when she was, like, in a living hell in season one and two, and now they hate her. … I think as an audience member you can empathize with her struggling to find happiness — I think it’s an ongoing process. … I think it’s funny that it carries over into my life, my actual life, when [show creator] Matt [Weiner] writes a storyline that Betty’s unlikable, all of a sudden, everybody hates me. I hope she gets a little more well received.”

– Well, well, well. January Jones is more self-aware than I expected. I assumed, like a lot of people, that she herself was as oblivious and filled with denial as her “Mad Men” character, Betty Draper Francis, whom everybody loves to hate. I have news for you, January: I don’t hate you. Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Letterman’s Comedy Booker Makes Dig At Female Comics

  • “The Late Show with David Letterman”‘s comedy booker, Eddie Brill, was profiled in The New York Times this weekend, and was asked about how only one woman (Karen Rontowski) was booked on the show during all of 2011. “There are a lot less female comics who are authentic,” he said. “I see a lot of female comics who, to please an audience, will act like men.” Now that he’s being criticized for his sexist attitude and commentary, Eddie Brill is accusing the reporter, Jason Zimon, of having it out for him. The reporter just says he was accurately quoting what the “Letterman” booker said … and, well, the fact that he only booked one woman on his show all year kind of speaks for itself, doesn’t it?  [New York Times, Mediaite, Mirth Mag] Keep reading »

Taylor Swift Vogue cover photo

I love me some Taylor Swift, but honestly, I never thought she was the Vogue type. Tay-Tay is more suburban mall than bombshell and all those princess dresses are not exactly fashion-forward. But lo and behold, here she is on the February 2012 issue of Vogue with straightened hair and a big-ass wide-brimmed hat. Taylor looks more grown-up than usual here … which I suppose is the point of posing for Vogue, no? [Styleite]
