When I started writing my memoir, Good Chinese Wife: A Love Affair With China Gone Wrong, I began networking with authors who wrote books set in Asia. I imagined developing solid friendships with a group of supportive authors. There’s a Chinese saying, huxiang bangzhu. It means “mutually helping one another.” That’s what I pictured.

Fast-forward six years. My memoir was being published and I arranged for review copies to be sent to authors I’ve gotten to know through social networking or in person. I knew I couldn’t expect rave reviews just because we have a connection or because I had given their books five stars on Amazon and Goodreads. But for the most part, I had been extremely pleased with the feedback.

Well, except for this one guy. Keep reading »

Reese Witherspoon Gets "Wild"

There’s no movie I’m anticipating more this year than “Wild” starring Reese Witherspoon, the film adaptation of Cheryl Strayed‘s memoir. Like, Reese Witherspoon wearing no makeup and lots of flannel in a fucking bush.Wild is the story of Strayed’s 1,100-mile solo hike along the Pacific Crest Trail as she struggles to leave behind drug use and a disappointing marriage, all following the death of her beloved mom. The trailer finally dropped today and, oh, does this look good. We only have to wait until December 5th until its in theaters. [YouTube]

Who Wants To Cuddle Up To An “American Horror Story” Rubber Man Doll?

Far be it from me to criticize if what you really want to snuggle up with at night is the Rubber Man from “American Horror Story” season one. All of these Funko Pop dolls are a bit creepy with their big ol’ eyes, but the rubber man with that ball gag in his mouth? The creepiest. Although I suppose if you’re an “AHS” fan with a doll collection, this is probably right up your alley. See a few more of the dolls after the jump! [Entertainment Earth via ONTD] Keep reading »

Today is my last day at The Frisky. This morning I told the rest of the staff that I wanted to write one story about Nickelback, one story about goats, and one story about Celine Dion today, because those are my main beats/life passions and it seemed fitting to bookend my time here with that trifecta. I’d just finished writing my Nickelback story when this link popped up in my Facebook feed: A VIDEO OF GOATS SINGING THE JURASSIC PARK THEME. Not to brag, but I’m pretty sure I manifested this, especially because “Jurassic Park” is, like, my 6th favorite movie of all time. I’m going to listen to it on repeat while I manifest some crazy breaking news about Celine Dion. [Jezebel]
