I’ve been a fan of Stevie Ryan’s ever since I randomly caught a clip of her hilarious YouTube series “Scene Kid Love” a few years ago. So I was stoked to find out that she’d been picked up by VH1 for her own TV show. “Stevie TV” is Stevie’s chance to show off her wealth of ridiculous characters and impressions — including Kim Kardashian, Linsay Lohan and Drita from “Mob Wives.” In this clip from Sunday night’s show, Stevie plays one of the sullen, disaffected stars of hipster soap opera “As The World Whatevers,” which takes place in a Dov Charney/American Apparel-type nightmare.  The key utterance? “I feel like every day I have to choose between my dignity and my non-paying modeling hobby.” So true.

Yesterday afternoon, I was on my way to the supermarket to pick up some soup. I was picking up soup because I’m feeling deathly sick and not in the best frame of mind. So when a guy came up to me and started talking to me on the street, walking along side me, well, I wasn’t in the mood for it. The middle-aged man began whispering a bunch of vulgar things under his breath at me, slowly growing louder and louder. I couldn’t make out much of what he was saying, except that he kept saying the word “dick” over and over again. Finally, after walking a block with this guy next to me, I turned to him, growled and yelled “get the fuck away from me!” He quickly veered off his path and turned the corner. Keep reading »

Will there be justice in the death of this innocent teen? Read More »

This past week, 32-year-old mother of five Shaima Alawadi was found brutally beaten in her El Cajon, California, home, her head bashed in with a tire iron. She was taken unconscious to a local hospital, but just three days later her family opted to take her off life support. She died this past Saturday. 

While police still haven’t officially labeled Alawadi’s death a hate crime, it’s clear that Alawadi’s ethnic and religious background was on the minds of the perpetrators. A note was left at the scene of the crime, and though police aren’t saying what the note said, they did reveal that a similar note was left at the house the previous month. Said Alawadi’s 17-year-old daughter Fatima, “A week ago they left a letter saying this is our country not yours you terrorist, and so my mom ignored that thinking it was just kids playing a prank. But the day they hit her, they left another note again, and it said the same thing.” Keep reading »

I’m all for anthropomorphizing animals. I spend a lot of time talking to my cat, after all. However, this sweatshirt featuring a polar bear sporting a top hat, bowtie and umbrella is just not right. Polar bears would not need umbrellas. That’s just ridiculous. They have polar bear hair! Also, why is this polar bear hanging out in some weird tropical climate? That’s completely and totally unrealistic. But perhaps the most important question — why is this sweatshirt so terribly ugly? [$57.99, Modcloth]

Whenever Winona really loves something, she refers to it as “Dream Life Status.” Dream Life Status seems like a pretty fitting way to describe what it might be like to hang out with “The Artist” star Uggie and Walking Handsome Eyebrows actor Ian Somerhalder. I just watched Somerhalder in the all-together terrible movie “Rules of Attraction” (I don’t recommend it, but I totally recommend it, if you know what I mean), and he is dreamy. He and Uggie met and hung out (sadly without me) at the Genesis Awards, the Humane Society’s award show to raise public awareness about animal issues.

After Round One of March Madness, it seems that our fair friend Rush Limbaugh trounced his conservo-pal Kirk Cameron. He beat Cameron in the crazy competition by nearly 6 to 1. Rush’s anti-woman, anti-slut diatribes now go up against our favorite honey boo-boo child, Alana, the Go-Go Juice chugging beauty pageant tyke from “Toddlers and Tiaras.” Rush would no doubt be disgusted by Alana’s antics, and Alana would likely be completely immune to Rush’s taunts (whatever you say about her, she does have insanely high self-esteem). But whose existence is more mind-boggling? More utterly confusing and bewildering? Vote!
