Girl Talk: Auditioning To Be A Disney Princess Helped Me Find My Inner Girly Girl

Disneyland photo

I was never the little girl who dreamed of being a princess. While other kids dressed up in pink chiffon and glitter, I fashioned three-piece suits out of garbage bags and pretended to be a lawyer defending my Babar doll in a custody dispute. So when I got the chance to audition to be a Disney Princess at Disney Hong Kong, it wasn’t about channeling some childhood fantasy. I knew I would be faking it. Or so I thought. Keep reading »

The 2010 Emmy Nominations Are In And It’s A Big Year For “Glee,” “Mad Men,” And Conan O’Brien

This morning, the Primetime Emmy nominations were announced and, as usual, there were few surprises. The Lead Actor in a Drama series category is especially competitive, in my TV-obsessed opinion, with “Mad Men”‘s Jon Hamm facing off against critical faves Hugh Laurie (“House”), Michael C. Hall (“Dexter”), and Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad,” my current favorite show) — Matthew Fox (“Lost”) scored his first nomination, as did Kyle Chandler (“Friday Night Lights”). I love me some Don Draper and Dexter Morgan, but I’m pulling for Cranston, who plays Walter White on “Breaking Bad,” but like I said, I have a meth-like addiction to that show. Not that I know what meth addiction is like. Keep reading »

If you want to look at saggy old dudes with blush smeared on their faces singing about constipation in a parody of Katy Perry’s “California Gurls,” then by all means, watch this disturbing video.

I recommend you watch this adorable video of baby pandas instead. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

I Wish “Smart Girls At The Party” Had Been Around When I Was A Kid


How did I miss the memo about Amy Poehler’s awesome web series “Smart Girls at the Party”? Already in its second season, the concept is that Poehler and her co-hosts, Amy Miles and Meredith Walker, interview young girls who are “changing the world by being themselves.” Keep reading »

Belinda Carlisle’s Lips Are Unsealed

I don’t think I knew any young girls growing up in the ’80s who didn’t worship the all-girls rock band The Go-Go’s. I was no exception. I was specifically taken with the funky hair-rocking, Day-Glo-clothes-sporting, frosted lipstick-wearing lead singer, Belinda Carlisle. I wanted to be her, but now I’m not so sure. Belinda’s new tell-all memoir, Lips Unsealed, reveals that her life was more hell than heaven on earth. Here are five things you probably didn’t know about the Go-Go. Keep reading »

“Law & Order” Rises From The Ashes? With Henry Ian Cusick?

I’ve got a double dose of amazing “Law & Order” news for you. As you probably remember, the classic show was canceled in May after 20 seasons. But apparently AMC—the network behind “Mad Men” and Amelia’s favorite new obsession, “Breaking Bad”— has approached NBC and asked about the possibility of creating new episodes of the series. Could there be more funky gavel sounds in our future? Potentially even more exciting: guess who has been added to the cast of “Law & Order: SVU”? Henry Ian Cusik, otherwise known as Desmond from “Lost.” Woohoo! Cusick will play a graphic artist who may or may not be a love interest for Mariska Hargitay’s Detective Benson. But will he still have an Australian Scottish accent? Please say “Aye!” [NYMag.com, TV Guide] Keep reading »

Madonna Takes Her Anglophile Kick To A New Level

Madonna is directing yet another Britastic film. After last year’s “Filth and Wisdom,” she’s now doing one called “W.E.” The flick is about Queen Elizabeth and how she was once a savvy, powerful chick. Natalie Dormer of “The Tudors” will be playing the Queen Mother and James Fox of “Sherlock Holmes” has been cast as King George V. Madonna totally loses us on the plot, though, which goes on a confusing journey through England’s royal scandals, like the love affair between King Edward VIII and American divorcée Wallis Simpson. During the relationship, Simpson was accused of being a witch, a hermaphrodite and the king was thought to be gay and a Nazi sympathizer. Supposedly, their relationship will be juxtaposed “with a 1998 romance between a woman in a loveless marriage (Abbie Cornish) and a Russian security guard.” Got it? Yeah, me neither. Vera Farmiga, Ewan McGregor, and Margo Stilley have all dropped out of the project. Stilley cited “artistic differences” and said Madonna is “really something.” In a good or bad way?

Tabloid Cheat Sheet: Joel Cheating On Nicole? A Baby For Jessica Simpson?

It’s that time of year, just past spring fever, when all the baby rumors start. I guess the idea is that once the snow thawed, everyone started shacking up and doing the deed. So, it’s no surprise that this week’s tabloids are all baby dramas and alleged relationships, often simultaneously. I guess that’s why they call it hump day? And so you remain on top of all the news, we rounded up the juiciest gossip once again so that you don’t have to be bothered with paper cuts and inane “They’re Just Like Us” columns. Keep reading »

Why Everyone Should Be Watching “Tosh.0″

If you were alive in the ‘90s, you may find something eerily familiar about “Tosh.0,” the California-based internet clip show now in its third season on Comedy Central. Funny home movies shown to a live studio audience by a host who seems wholesome if you don’t look too closely? If you’re like me, you’re thinking, “I’ve seen this somewhere before.” In 1990, Bob Saget became the face of a show that encouraged laughing at crackpot escapades caught on tape, ABC’s longest-running comedy series, “America’s Funniest Home Videos.” Tosh.0, which airs Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m., is “AFHV”’s nastier, trashier, Twitter-literate younger brother.
