For what it’s worth, the mothers depicted on “Toddlers & Tiaras” are not widely considered the bastions of good parenthood. I’ve never actually watched the show, but from what I’ve heard and the clips I’ve seen, the parents of the pageant girls make a damn good case for exactly how not to raise a child. In this sneak peek clip from this week’s new episode, which airs tonight, a mother who home-schools her children reveals just how “dedicated” she is to keeping them social. In fact, she tells the camera, “We have taken our children to several drag shows. I’ve had her performing ‘Poker Face’ on the bar at Applebee’s.” Funny, because that’s exactly how I would socialize my hypothetical home-schooled kids! But don’t worry: “It’s not like people threw dollars at her or anything.” Whew.

Oh Great, Now There’s A Show About Straight Girls Pretending To Be Lesbians

Gay Marriage Ad
This marriage equality ad will give you chills. Watch »

Remember that awful Kevin James movie “I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry,” in which James and pal Adam Sandler pretend to be gay so they can get health benefits? So funny, right? So many stupid, atrocious gay stereotypes. Well, now it seems that lesbians have become equal opportunity comedy fodder. Sara Rue — who I loved so much in “Popular” — has penned a new show in which two roommates must pretend to be a lesbian couple in order to score a sweet apartment.

Called “Poseurs,” Rue will star as Lucy, a young woman whose fiance moves out just as her unstable college roommate Alex needs a place to live. Of course, Lucy’s co-op building doesn’t allow roommates, so Lucy and Alex hatch a plan to pretend to be lesbian lovers. As you do. Wacky hijinks ensue. Keep reading »

The Life And Times Of Snookie Lanore

Watch Video

Drag balls are a vibrant part of gay urban culture; the 1990 documentary “Paris Is Burning” perfectly encapsulated the showmanship, extravagance and fierceness of the underground parties, where contestants danced, vogued and walked off in “realness” battles. More than 20 years later, drag balls are still alive and well — and they’ve entranced a younger generation of queer youth. In “The Show Must Go On,” teenage ball emcee Snookie Lanore explains what his Kiki Ball is all about. [Vimeo]

I blame Zooey Deschanel. Not just because I blame Zooey Deschanel for most of my problems — why men in my demographic seem to all want some unattainable manic pixie dream girl, why my bangs will never be perfect — but I specifically blame her for the rise of the word “Adorkable.” Deschanel used it on her new TV show “The New Girl” and somehow, inexplicably, it has taken hold. And it is a terrible word.

But “adorkable”–which we assume means something or someone that’s both dorky and adorable–is hardly the only newish term that’s made a creeping rise into our vocabularies and the general consciousness. We’ve come to cringe at a variety of oft-heard terms. Below, the words, phrases and annoying sayings that we’re hoping we won’t hear in 2012. And please, feel free to add your own “adorkables” in the comments. Keep reading »
