The Mindy Project

It’s not easy to make offensive jokes about ignorance. One person’s ignorant joke can be another person’s joke about ignorance and even if your comedy has the best of intentions, it’s frequently misunderstood.  Offensive humor is tricky to balance, but smart humorists can do it well.

I believe Mindy Kaling from “The Office” is extremely smart and that she deserves all the success she’s garnered from her book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? and her upcoming sitcom “The Mindy Project.” But after watching the pilot for “The Mindy Project,” which is airing on Hulu Plus, I have to say I was disappointed about several squicky jokes made about race.

DSW Launches Glass Slipper Collection For Wannabe Cinderellas

A Capella Disney Songs
This mega mix of Disney tunes will blow your mind. Watch »

If your efforts to land a rich prince have been unsuccessful thus far, maybe it’s time to switch up your footwear choices. An excellent bet for aspiring princesses? DSW’s new Glass Slipper collection, a collaboration with Disney to celebrate the October 2nd release of “Cinderella” on Blu-Ray. Available in stores and online on October 1st, the limited edition collection will include a variety of heels (none of which are actually made of glass) embellished with fairytale-worthy jewel and lace accents, priced from $59.95 to $89.95. Each shoe will include an embossed carriage logo, but alas, no tracking mechanism for that inevitable moment when it falls off your foot as you rush out of a ball at the stroke of midnight. Guess you’ll still have to rely on a determined prince and Craigslist missed connections to be reunited with your lost slipper. [Racked]

Is there any pleasure guiltier than Lifetime Television for Women? It’s so pleasingly masochistic — I mean, is there anywhere else on TV where women are so often murdering or being murdered? And we couldn’t be happier to hear that Lifetime is making a new movie about the fabulous life and times of Anna Nicole Smith. We’re so psyched, in fact, that we decided to help them out with the casting. I mean, wouldn’t it be amazing to see Jennifer Coolidge as Anna Nicole? Or Juno Temple? Maybe Kate Upton or Pam Anderson? We created a chart with all of our top picks and the likelihood that they might actually play ANS. Check out our handy guide and tell us who you think should play her in the comments.

Lifetime Movies For Republicans Who Don’t Understand Rape

Republicans are airing sexual ignorances this week. Representative Steve King of Iowa has “never heard of” statutory rape causing pregnancy; Senate nominee Tom Smith thinks ”having a baby out of wedlock” is “similar to” rape;  and, of course, there’s Todd Akin. Have these guys never watched “Law & Order: SVU” or browsed movie listings on Lifetime? Rape narratives are a primetime TV staple these days, rivaled in volume only by Real Housewives and Ryan Seacrest’s face.

To speed the sexual education of the GOP, we have paired ten Republicans’ ill-conceived rape comments with cinematic antidotes from the Lifetime TV oeuvre. Movie night at the Tampa Hilton, anyone? Read more…

Mmm, Crystal Meth Donuts…

I’m still reeling from Sunday night’s tragic episode of “Breaking Bad” — GODDAMMIT I DON’T WANT TO HATE YOU WALTER WHILE BUT I DO! I HATE YOU! You know what would take the edge off my pain? A donut. Specifically a Breaking Bad Blue Sky donut from Albuquerque, New Mexico’s Rebel Donut. Who knew Heisenberg’s blue meth could taste so sweet? See a closeup shot after the jump!

"Bach Pad" Recap
How do you spell titillating?

Now that all of the interesting contestants have been kicked off “Bachelor Pad,” there are very few ways to keep the viewers watching. A spelling bee and confessions are what the producers opt for. The remaining “Pad” members are happy to oblige, dredging up the best they have to offer in the way of DEEP, DARK, T-I-T-I-L-L-A-T-I-N-G “Bachelor Pad” confessions. Well, not really, but I wanted to make a reference to the spelling bee. Thanks for humoring me. More after the jump. Keep reading »
