Ann Curry Says Goodbye

Not for nothing, but I think Ann Curry is getting the ass end of the donkey here. Sure, her celebrity interview style was a bit uncomfortable to watch, but she’s also an incredibly accomplished journalist with a lifetime’s worth of amazing international news coverage under her belt. This woman is one of our shining stars, if you ask me. But she was put in a job where she was basically set up to fail. And I mean, what has Matt Lauer done for me lately? Ann, I love you, and I’m proud of you, and you didn’t need to be stuck on that stupid couch to do good work. Here’s hoping this frees her up to do more great, hard-hitting reporting from here and abroad.

When Bethenny Frankel Hung Out With Screech

What fresh hell is this? It seems that before she was a multi-tasking, Skinny Girl Margarita-mix-making, talk show-having, reality TV star, Bethenny Frankel worked as a PA on the set of “Saved By The Bell.” That’s where she met acting luminary and Professionally Creepy Dude Dustin Diamond. This photo is obviously ground zero for cultural herpes or something.

10 Badass LGBTQ Characters From Television

We’d like this list to serve not only as a celebration of LGBTQ characters on television, but also as a reminder that this is not the end all be all of queer representation: there is so much work to be done, and maybe one day we’ll be able to publish a power grid of queer characters without a disclaimer accounting for all the identities overlooked and misrepresented. These characters are fighting against broader cultural norms and prejudices in a way that improves the lives of queer people everywhere, if only just a little bit. Read more…

The “The Hills” As Art

I can’t quite tell you why, but I was pretty darn addicted to MTV’s “Laguna Beach” and “The Hills,” and, to a lesser degree, “The City.” Nothing ever actually happened on these shows and the conversations and “characters” were basically the opposite of fascinating, but maybe it was their incredible blandness that made it hard to turn away. I think I am going overboard trying to justify this particular  habit — I just like TV that temporarily lobotomizes me. Artist Karin Bubas is probably on my wavelength, because she’s created these portraits of “The Hills” stars at their most, um, poignant. I kind of dig the soft focus glow of them — they remind me of the ’80s Sweet Valley High book covers. I’m not saying I’m planning on buying one, but if someone gave me the drawing of Lauren with the single mascara-tainted tear stain on her cheek, I would make a space on my wall for it.

Nora Ephron’s Nora Ephroniest Movie Moments: From “Heartburn” To “You’ve Got Mail”

RIP Nora Ephron

Thank You, Nora
The biggest lesson Nora Ephron taught us about love. Read More »

It would be unfair to list off Nora Ephron’s greatest movie moments as merely a collection of scenes from “When Harry Met Sally” and “Sleepless In Seattle”. Two important films, no doubt, but Ephron’s magic is sprinkled across all her work: from the Instant Messages written in “You’ve Got Mail” to Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep’s rendition of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” in “Heartburn.” Grab a pen and take note while we run down some of our favorite Ephronisms–you might surprise yourself as you grab “Michael” at your local surviving Blockbuster later today.

A Thank You To Nora Ephron, For The Thing She Taught Me About Love

RIP Nora Ephron
Nora Ephron has passed away. Read More »

In light of Nora Ephron’s passing yesterday at the age of 71, I felt a desire to pay tribute to the journalist/writer/director in some way. As a female writer it’s important to honor the careers of women who you admire, who inspire you in how to craft your own career. Click around the web and you’ll find it saturated with life lessons, quotes from her books and movies, scenes we should remember. I could give you another roundup like that. There are at least 10 lines from “When Harry Met Sally” that come up in my conversations regularly. Baby fish mouth, anyone? But that doesn’t feel sufficient to me. What specifically do I want to thank Nora Ephron for? For giving me permission to order my dressing on the side? For being one of the first women to write a personal essay about her breasts? For launching a writing career using autobiographical material? Yes, but still, it’s more than that.

Last night, after hearing news of Ephron’s passing, I was unable to think of anything else. I was finishing my second glass of wine at a birthday dinner for a good, male friend. I looked across the table at him. He smiled at me in this way that only he can, in a way that feels really comforting. A new thought came automatically.

He could be the guy I end up with. Keep reading »
