Earlier this week, it was announced that Whitney Cummings landed her own E! talk show titled, “Love You, Mean It With Whitney Cummings.” The show will be a weekly half-hour talk show appearing with “The Soup” on Wednesdays. Whitney and sidekick Julian McCullough will host guests, crack jokes and comment on pop culture. I’m not surprised that she landed her own talk show, but other people seem to be. Like her work or not, the girl is having a moment right now.
What’s disheartening are the blogsphere’s reactions to the news. Headlines include: “Whitney Cummings Gets the Late-Night E! Talk Show of Your Nightmares” and “Whitney Cummings Getting A Talk Show, So You Can Hear More Of What Whitney Cummings Thinks About Things.” Keep reading »
Mary Katrantzou is a designer who takes a lot of risks, and they often pay off. But in the case of this bizarre printed frock-cum-apron worn by January Jones at a screening of “La Revolucion Bleue,” well, the risks certainly didn’t pay off. As Coco Chanel once famously pointed out, before you leave the house, it’s always good to remove at least one accessory. This dress is like 47 accessories too many. Next time, January.
Confession: I am seriously, seriously obsessed with Justin Bieber’s song “Boyfriend.” It is Justin Timberlake-lite, but considering JT is so serious about “acting” now, JB will have to do. And now there’s a music video! Truthfully, I was feeling a little uncomfortable watching him trying to be sexy, because he is so young and really too pretty for my tastes, but then I started imagining that Justin is actually Justine, a lesbian, and it somehow made it a little better. Plus, Justin’s got sweet moves. Don’t judge me!
I’ve been short all my life — I think I stopped growing at, like, 12 or something, and depending on the day, I will tell you I’m 5’2″ or 5 feet. I really think i’m probably just 5 feet tall, but I lied about it for so long that I’m not sure what the truth is. When you are short, people will readily call you cute, but not pretty or beautiful. When you’re short, it feels harder to be taken seriously. And when you’re short, absolutely nothing ever fits without getting major tailoring.
I wanted to be taller for so long — for sooooo long — until one day I didn’t. Until I realized that there are actually a lot of advantages to being short. Like, sure, you’re always cute, but then again, you’re always considered cute. And there’s never really a dude who’s off-limits because of his height. And you can still shop at Gap Kids if you want.
Anyway, there are tons of fierce short girls out there — women whose small stature doesn’t dictate their large personalities. Check ‘em out.
“That bitch is crazy … you are not supposed to take kids there. Everyone knows you are NOT supposed to take kids there.”
