The ultimate women’s entertainment fix – from new movies to reality TV to hot new music downloads.

The Katniss Everdeen Barbie

We admit it! We greeted the announcement of a “Hunger Games” Barbie with a little skepticism. Okay, a lot of skepticism. The secondary marketing for the movie (which took first place at the box office for the third weekend in a row this weekend, beating “Titanic‘s 3D” rerelease and yet another “American Pie” movie, grossing more than $450 million globally so far) has ridden a surprisingly satirical line by speaking to its audience as if they were citizens of the hedonistic, voyeuristic Capitol; casting those who would excitedly anticipate The Hunger Games as those who would excitedly anticipate the Hunger Games. 

A Katniss Barbie, however, seemed outside of that particular merchandizing plan. We feared the transformation of Katniss Everdeen into a Barbie doll in much the same way that Katniss is transformed into a dressed up Capitol plaything, but it appears what we’ve actually gotten looks more like an action figure than anything else.

11 Crazy And Sort Of Disgusting Fast Foods

Yesterday, Pizza Hut announced their new pizza innovation: pizza with hot dogs in the crust. After you’re done devouring your pizza, you’ve still got a hot dog cooked into the crust left to eat. It’s two delicious junk foods in one! We were really excited by the possibility [We were? -- Editor], but unfortunately it’s only available in the UK so far. Isn’t America the capital of obesity and snack innovation? What’s happening, guys? Are we slipping? In any case, we found a slew of other fast food menu items that will shock, amaze and tantalize your taste buds — if you happen to like sandwiches with sandwiches in them, and bacon-flavored everything as much as we do.

A Dramatic Wild Horse Rescue

Watch Video

Are you a horse girl? I’m a horse girl. And in another life, I would do what photographer Becky Standridge does. She spends her days in Arizona’s Tonto National Forest, documenting the wild horses that live there and helping to catalog the herd and its migration patterns. One day, while watching the horses, she managed to capture a dramatic water rescue on film. “People think horses don’t have a soul,” says Standridge. “But the soul of a horse is much bigger than man knows.” [AZ Central]

It’s sometimes hard to discern Joel McHale from his “Community” character, Jeff Winger. Both Jeff and Joel — the latter in this “viral” commercial for Nintendo 3DS — are smart, snarky know-it-alls. And both Jeff and Joel are so funny that we’d watch them do their taxes and probably get a laugh out of it. Here, Joel/Jeff schools a Nintendo exec on the art of the viral video and turns into the Mushroom King. Featuring cameos from Super Mario Bros. Mario and Luigi. [YouTube]

“I think Sarah Silverman had a quote where she was like, ‘Sometimes with an old guy with misogyny you’re just like, “You cute old guy. You misogynist.” I almost feel like [‘Two & A Half Men’ co-creator Lee Aronsohn, who complained last week that too many women have shows on TV ] is holding on desperately to a world that no longer exists … I felt especially bad for him because it’s not even a funny joke. If you had a good quip, I’d be like, ‘Well, you’re a dick, but at least you’re a good comedy writer!’ But with that, I was like, ‘Come on, dude. “Labia saturation point”?’ It’s also so dumb. There’s three shows on TV about women, so I guess we really reached our limit. It’s not like three-quarters of the world is comprised of women, you idiot. 

I almost wanted to do a tweet, but I didn’t do it: ‘Since we’ve reached our labia saturation point on television, I’ve decided not to release “Girls.”‘ Like, ‘HBO’s behind me on this decision and we’re so sorry for anybody we’re disappointing, but we really can’t over-vagina the TV. Lee has spoken.’”

– Lena Dunham, creator of “Girls,” responds to Lee Aronsohn’s fretfulness last week over reaching “peak vagina on television.” Lena’s got a point: if you’re going to be a sexist asshat … at least be a funny sexist asshat. [Huffington Post]

This past weekend, new “Saturday Night Live” cast member Kate McKinnon made her debut, and by all accounts, was a hit. And that’s a good, especially since rumors persist that key lady cast member Kristin Wiig will be leaving at the end of this season. Here, McKinnon appears for a scant 30 seconds, doing a pitch-perfect impression of Bravo TV’s Tabitha Coffey. And after the jump, check out her impersonation of Penelope Cruz, appearing in a Pantene commercial with host Sofia Vergara. Enjoy! Keep reading »
