Today’s Lady News: “Why You’re Not Married” To Become TV Show

Today's Lady News
  • Last year the internet was pissed off at a Huffington Post blog post by “Mad Men” writer Tracy Terry McMillan entitled “Why You’re Not Married,” which let us all in on the secret that men don’t like bitches, liars and sluts. The piece should have crawled back under the rock from which it spawned. But alack, alas, ABC is turning it into a sitcom.  [Clutch Magazine]
  • Four black nurses in Cobb Country, Georgia, are suing their employer Accord Services for not sending them to work in white homes. [Madame Noire]
  • The Health Resources & Services Administration released a report yesterday about the health-related needs of women, including, for the first time-ever, lesbians and bisexuals. [Think Progress] Keep reading »

Best Coast singer Bethany Cosentino’s obsession with her big orange tabby cat Snacks is well-documented. So it should come as no surprise that Cosentino and her band mates made an entire video featuring kittens. Admittedly, this video for “Crazy for You” is a couple months old, but we figured today was as good a day as any to revel in a few minutes of purrrrfect harmony. [YouTube]

No one in my book club is having children after last month’s selection: We Need To Talk About Kevin, by Lionel Shriver. It’s a novel about Eva, a successful travel guide writer who is ambivalent about getting pregnant and ends up giving birth to pure evil. No, it’s not like “Rosemary’s Baby” with a literally evil child: her son Kevin is psychopathic and Eva realizes it, but her husband is completely oblivious. So Kevin grows up, tormenting and terrorizing the people around him, until one day as a teenager he commits a heinous crime that will leave your blood cold. It’s an amazing book that I highly recommend reading. So I can’t wait for the film version in theaters early next year, starring Tilda Swinton as the mom, John C. Reilly as the dad, and Ezra Miller as Kevin. The trailer is absolutely chilling, so I can only imagine how disturbing the actual movie will be. [YouTube]

Hanging Out With Mindy Kaling

Mindy Kaling book

Even the title of Mindy Kaling‘s new book of essays is relatable: Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns). I’ve totally been there, too, girl. Now all of us can hang out with “The Office” writer/actress any time we want. With her trademark wit and intellect, Mindy shares stories about her immigrant parents, performing a show about Matt Damon and Ben Affleck off-Broadway, and joining one of the most popular sitcoms on television. Mark my words: Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? is going to make me want to make Mindy Kalin my new BFF. [$25, Powells.com]

It’s recently come to Fake Chloe Sevingy’s attention that she loves Hallo-we’en. And is, in fact, scared of very many things, among them, “Three day weekends with Casey Spooner, Mennonites, the unbearable lightness of being, and uncomfortable silences.” Aren’t we all? [YouTube]

Fox Gives “In Living Color” Another Chance

While I attempted to do the booty bounce along with the Fly Girls, my brother would hobble around the living room tucking his upper lip and blinking one eye (his best Fire Marshall Bill impersonation). It was a ritual in our house to watch the ’90s sketch comedy extravaganza, “In Living Color.” The groundbreaking Fox show, which launched the careers of superstars like Jennifer Lopez, Jim Carrey, and Jamie Foxx, is getting a second chance to shine. Fox has announced that two episodes will air as part of the network’s 25th anniversary. As if that news was not exciting enough, Keenen Ivory Wayans has signed on to produce one more season of the show with an all new cast. Yay! A ’90s show I actually want to watch again. This could be really, really good. I humbly request the return of LaWanda and Homey D. Clown. [NY Mag]
