“Friends” Surveyed Their Studio Audience About Whether They Thought Monica Geller Was A Skank

"Friends" Surveyed Their Studio Audience About Whether They Thought Monica Geller Was A Skank

As a huge “Friends” fan who owns all of the seasons on DVD, trivia games and Central Perk memorabilia that’s ever been produced, I love how I’m still learning fun little tidbits about the show 20 years after it first premiered. Lisa Kudrow, who played my kindred spirit Phoebe Buffay on the show, guest starred on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night and told the audience how “Friends” was considered “racy” back in the day. Who knew?

Apparently, before the pilot episode, NBC was so concerned about having Courteney Cox’s character Monica mention having a one night stand, that they surveyed the show’s live audience about it. So did they think Monica was a super skank for doing the deed on day one? Watch the video after the jump to find out! Keep reading »

The Men In Heels Who Slayed Beyoncé’s Choreography Are Back To Make Us Feel Uncoordinated Again

The Men In Heels Who Slayed Beyonce Choreography Are Back To Make Us Feel Uncoordinated
Life Is Unfair

Remember the three dudes in stilettos who perfectly mastered Beyoncé’s choreography earlier this year, thus making all of us feel like the most uncoordinated dancers in the world? Well, they’re back to remind us what that feels like.

Yanis Marshall and his high-heeled partners, Arnaud Boursain and Mehdi Mamine, have decided to induce us all with a big dose of nostalgia and show off their moves, this time to The Pussycat Dolls’ 2005 hit “Buttons.” The video starts off with the whole dance studio jamming to the song before focusing on the trio’s freakishly good moves that even the best, most expensive strippers would envy.

Betty White “Lives On Hot Dogs And Vodka,” Swears Like A Sailor

Betty White is probably the coolest 92-year-old to ever walk the earth, and a new interview in Closer Magazine proves it.

Not only is the spunky prankster still working in showbiz after seven decades of entertaining, but those close to her credit her good health and sharp wit two of my favorite things.

“She lives on hot dogs and vodka,” her “Hot In Cleveland” co-star, Wendie Malick, told the mag. “It’s her secret weapon. I don’t think it’s for everyone — don’t try it at home!” (Note: Unless you’re me, in which case, it’s just another Friday night.) Keep reading »

A Day In The Life Of Rutgers University’s “Politicizing Beyoncé” Class

A Day In The Life Of Rutgers University's "Politicizing Beyoncé" Class
"There Is Something Bigger Going On In A Beyoncé Video"

Let it be clear: I have no desire to go back to school, UNLESS it is to take Rutgers University’s “Politicizing Beyoncé” class.

The course, which takes a look at Beyoncé’s songs, music videos and feminist advocacy, usually begins with a viewing of one of her music videos, and is followed by a discussion of readings and songs, and how they may tie into each other. Kevin Allred, the course’s lecturer, says he teaches the class because Beyoncé “provides a really good entry point to a lot of black feminist texts, so it’s a class about Beyoncé, but it’s also not a class about Beyoncé. It’s a class about black feminist history and black feminist theory, in the United States, especially.” Keep reading »

Could Disney’s Next Princess Have Special Needs?

Could Disney's Next Princess Have Special Needs?

Many little kids, at one point or another, have wanted to be a Disney Princess. We grew up watching Belle, Ariel, Jasmine, Mulan and others teach us that it’s okay to be brave, strong-willed, vulnerable and fiercely independent, and as the times have changed, the brand’s Princesses have adapted to become more culturally diverse. But there is one kind of Disney Princess we’ve never seen: one with special needs. Keep reading »
