Sitcoms for everyone! Mindy Kaling is the latest lady we love to get her own show: a source tells NYmag.com that Fox will be ordering a pilot written and starring the fabulous Miss K. The “Office” star will play an OB/GYN as ”young Bridget Jones type … trying to navigate both her personal and professional lives.” Obstretics and gynecology are actually something our girl Mindy knows about in real life, seeing as her mama is a gyno in Boston. I’m suspending judgment for now: I love Mindy Kaling as much as the next 20something liberal arts degree-holding urban female, but it remains to be seen where stirrups and Pap smears are funzies on TV.

As anybody who reads The Frisky knows, there’s been a 500 percent increase in sloth coverage since I’ve been hired. That’s because I’m obsessed with them, and hope that one day I will be able to hang out with them, cuddle them and love them. Kristen Bell is obsessed with them, too. And her boyfriend Dax Shepard surprised her this year with a visit from one on her birthday — with unintended results. [Ellen]

Um, 2007 called — it wants to tell you who “Gossip Girl” is! See, 2007 is the last time I actually would have cared about “Gossip Girl”‘s secret blogger scandalizing the Upper East Side by publishing everyone’s dirt. For five whole seasons, “Gossip Girl” has pulled the bait and switch pretending to reveal his or her identity. Is it Eric? Is it Eric’s boyfriend? Is it Dorota? (Puh-leaze let it be Dorota.) It has taken 100 episodes of Gossip Girl’s signature sign-off — “And who am I?! That’s a secret I’ll never tell. You know you love me.. XO XO Gossip Girl” — to reveal her identity once and for all.

The Sundance Film Festival is not just a place for swag bags and celebs hanging out for the paparazzi on Main Street. Nope, it’s hard work for journalists and publicists who are often running on fumes as we run through the snow to see the best (and worst) movies that are looking for distribution or buzz. I’m always on the lookout for the awesomest lady-centric films to hype because, let’s face it, they’re few and far between.
As always, Sundance offered some overhyped films, huge hits, and big misses. Luckily, I was there to sort the wheat from the chaff, and while I didn’t peep all of these movies, my trusted friends and colleagues did. Keep reading »
