“I didn’t really fully comprehend the level of guilt involved [with being a mom]. I like to pride myself on not being a person who really functions at a level of guilt, and yet, man, I never knew I could feel so guilty when I work 16 hours and I really don’t get to spend enough time with my son. It’s awful.”
–”Nashville” star Connie Britton tells People magazine about the newfound capacity for guilt she’s discovered as a mom to her adorable 2-year-old son Yoby, whom she calls “the most incredible kid.” Despite the struggles, Britton says, “I wouldn’t have it any other way,” and in fact she would love to add to her family: “I would love more kids. Why not? Bring it on.” God, can you imagine having Tami Taylor for your mom? Luckiest kids ever. Connie, just FYI, I’m totally available for adoption. [People]
The video game world, for all its mind-blowing technical innovation, can be a surprisingly traditional place. Earlier this month, Jeff Hickman, the executive producer of Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic, announced a major sign of progress: his team is working hard to create a same-gender romance option for game characters.
“I want to apologize that this is taking so long to get in the game. I realize that we promised SGR [same gender romance] to you guys and that many of you believed that this would be with a companion character… As we have said in the past, allowing same gender romance is something we are very supportive of.” Keep reading »

Clare Bowen plays sweet, innocent, crazy-talented Scarlett on “Nashville” and also might be the cutest person to ever walk the earth, but she showed up for a recent appearance on “Good Morning America” buried under layers and layers of country-fried clothes and accessories. I’m all about the “more is more” fashion philosophy, especially when it comes to country singers (rock that sequin jumpsuit, Dolly!), but I think Clare could stand to lose one statement piece–maybe the patterned tights?–to take this outfit from costume-y to straight up cute.

When I saw these Tabasco-flavored jelly beans, I had to do some deep breathing exercises to stifle my gag relax, but they must have sounded really good to someone, because they’re currently sold out. So, are you one of the Tabasco fanatics who would gladly gobble up a bag of these? Or do you find them as horrifying as I do? [Neatorama]
Today in “stories that easily could have been about me,” a Belgian woman set out to pick up a friend at a train station 90 miles from her home, and, after typing the address into her GPS device, proceeded to follow the turn-by-turn directions 900 miles in the wrong direction. Sabine Moreau, 67, drove for two full days, sleeping on the side of the road, filling her gas tank twice, and even getting in a minor car accident, but apparently none of this made her question the validity of her route. In fact, Moreau didn’t notice anything was amiss until she got to Croatia. “I was distracted, so I kept driving,” she told El Mundo. “I saw all kinds of traffic signs, first in French, then German and finally in Croatian, but I kept driving because I was distracted. Suddenly I appeared in Zagreb and I realized I wasn’t in Belgium anymore.”
Sabine, I feel you, girl. [Yahoo News]
Daniel Keeton works at a central Oregon brewery and didn’t want his dog Lola Jane to miss out on all the fun, so he created Dawg Grog, a non-alcoholic “beer” especially for dogs, made from malted barley water, liquid glucosamine, and organic vegetable broth. Lola Jane turned out to be a bit of a Grog-aholic, licking the bowl clean at every opportunity. When Keeton decided to bottle up his beverage and sell it to other thirsty canines, a thriving business was born.
Now that dogs can safely and easily drink “beer” with their owners, I got to thinking about all the other ways people can give their pets a more authentic human lifestyle. From dog weddings to luxury pet massages to paw manicures, read on to get the scoop on all the weird ways to treat your dog like a human…
Dear Ryan Gosling,
I know that it’s usually Amelia who writes you letters, but this week it’s my turn, because of some major news that just emerged: apparently you tried to join the Backstreet Boys way back when they first made it big, but BSB bad boy AJ McLean (aka the #1 love of my life) didn’t return your calls. I bet that stung. I’m sorry. But guess what, Ry Ry? AJ never meant to blow you off! He just lost your phone number! Duh, bad boys are notorious for losing their address books! And now he has officially invited you to join the Backstreet Boys.
Do you understand what this means? Amelia’s well-documented celebrity obsession is you. My well-documented celebrity obsession is AJ McLean. When this news broke, it was like our spank banks merged and became the Goldman Sachs of sexual fantasies. Are you considering AJ’s offer? You should. Here are eight reasons why… Keep reading »
