The Three Laws of Female Robotics:
1. A female robot must always have perfect makeup, even if her arm is falling off.
2. A female robot must have at least one spare head available to her at all times.
3. A female robot will only find a mate if she follows the First and Second Laws.

Tonight, I’ll be liveblogging the latest episode of “American Idol,” starting at 8pm EST. So far, the judges have hit cities like Phoenix and Louisville, and heard some pretty atrocious voices (and a couple of good ones). Tonight our ears will split in Salt Lake City! Mormons singing, hooray!

This morning, we posted the PETA ad that is too sexy to air during the Super Bowl. Well, we weren’t the only ladies discussing it. Because “The View” couldn’t air the ad before they discussed it during the Hot Topics portion of the show, Whoopi acted it out for everyone. Go to ABC.com to watch their discussion of PETA’s ad.

I tried to hold back posting about this again today, but then I realized most of you don’t follow Mary Rambin’s blog as avidly as I do — I also like to watch “Intervention” while eating and have been known to wear open-toed shoes in the snow, so it’s not like I’m against torturing myself. Anyway, I thought you all might like to read her apology. Or sort of apology. And we (the royal “we” that encompasses women appalled by her abortion/Botox comparison) get a shout out! Ahem… Keep reading »
Jon Hamm is guest starring on “30 Rock” starting Feb. 5, and a clip from the episode has been released! Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) discovers she has a handsome neighbor when Dr. Drew Baird’s mail gets delivered to her by mistake. From the 39 second that have been released, we know that Dr. Baird has an ice cream maker and loves to bake. Swoon.
The line Liz utters, “I want to go to there,” is one Fey stole from her daughter, Alice. At the SAG Awards, Fey thanked Alice in her acceptance speech for coining this phrase. About 25 years from now, Alice is going to be writing, starring in, and producing a show of her own, guaranteed. Either that, or she’ll be a highly acclaimed author. The girl is writing TV dialogue at age 3! Keep reading »
What’s this ad really about? You tell me. Copyranter reports this ad campaign was created for the German edition of Men’s Health magazine. Both of the ads feature young women exercising to the point of sweaty, dejected exhaustion. In one ad, the woman leans over the handlebars of her bicycle, out of breath. In the other ad, the woman sits on her stationary bicycle, wiped out. The ad copy reads: “IT’S ALL ABOUT MEN.” Copyranter opines: “While it’s certainly not clear, the message of the campaign appears to be ‘that’s right babes, you keep exercising you little patooties off…for us men.’” It’s hard to argue with that position. One of the female commenters chimes in: “The only reason I exercise is so I can get laid.” I’d say she’s the truthteller. What do you think? Is this misogynist marketing or the face of reality?

Today started off as a miserable day, and it’s getting worse. We just heard that Conde Nast closed Domino magazine and its website, DominoMag.com. Damn, economy! March 2009 will be the magazine’s final issue. Amelia and I are simply heartbroken. Domino was our porn. What are we going to lust over (besides Ryan Gosling) now?!?! Please join me in a moment of silence. Keep reading »
Great news for those of us who are 32: we’re totally hot! At least, this is the age we report feeling the most beautiful, anyway. A new survey of 1500 women found that 40% of respondents said they felt most attractive at this age. At 32 women say their life “had the mix of confidence gained from life experience, an active love life and the pleasure of eating and drinking sensibly.” Hmm…do women not have that at 33 anymore? Or at 38, or 43, or 50? While I would hope these things would continue well past 32, some psychologist named Sandra Wheatley says this is “really encouraging” news because it means women are placing value on life experiences and achievements instead of just how shiny there hair is or how perky their boobs are. She told the Daily Mail: “It sounds to me like women are becoming much more swayed by personality. It’s a sign that we are valued for who we are and what we are capable of, not just what is on the surface. Feeling beautiful is tied in with confidence and life experience. At 32, a woman has been through and survived more experiences and achieved more than at 22.” Keep reading »
