An Ode To Mellie Grant From “Scandal”

“If you knew the sacrifices that I have made, the things that I have given up, and the pieces of myself that I have given away for you, and you treat me this way. You declare war on me, and you shame me, and you make me beg for scraps when I have done nothing but fight for you.” – Mellie

Dearest Mellie Grant,

You are the tragic hero the White House forgot. How different your life would be if you’d been born a man, able to use your advanced degree to change the world instead of relying on your cute outfits and good looks to get by in your husband Fitz’s shadow. He will go down in the history books for all he did for this great nation (which, mostly, he did jack shit), while your years of behind-the-scenes hard work will be attributed to his name or simply forgotten.

Fox Picked Up A “Subversive” New Show Based On The Archie Comics

Ooooh, there’s going to be a new live-action Archie show called “Riverdale,” written by Archie writer and Archie Comics CCO Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and produced by Berlanti Productions, which is the production house for “Arrow,” “The Flash,” and the upcoming “Supergirl.” It’s going to be a “subversive” look at small-town life, featuring Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead, and Reggie, as well as other well-known Archie characters like Josie and the Pussycats. Can we get Sabrina in there, too, and can we get Melissa Joan Hart to play Hilda or Zelda? Keep reading »

In their new documentary, “Weed The People,” filmmakers Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein profile the story of Sophie Ryan, who at seven months, was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. After much research and investigation, Sophie’s parents turned to medicinal cannabis oil, and the results were almost unbelieveable — the treatment was shrinking Sophie’s tumor. “Weed The People” — which will be out next year — looks at Sophie’s story, as well as the growing industry of cannabis medicine and the impact it’s having in the lives of patients. And Sophie is not alone. There are many patients — many of them children — that are benefiting from using cannabis oil or medical marijuana to treat everything from cancer to seizures.

Janay Rice Says All There Is To Say About That Ray Rice Halloween Costume

Some asshole decided that it would be super-hilarious to be Ray Rice, Domestic Abuser for Halloween, and made a costume in which he wore Rice’s jersey and dragged around a blow-up doll. You know what stumps me about this? He got the “don’t wear blackface” memo, but not the “domestic abuse is not funny” memo. It was originally posted on Reddit’s /r/funny subreddit, which, just… vom.

Obviously there’s been a lot of backlash. It’s been roundly criticized on the internet and on Twitter (sickeningly enough, there are plenty of people who think it’s just hilarious as well), and on TMZ Rose McGowan called it “repulsive.” But the sort of bottom-line sentiment about the whole thing comes from Janay Rice: Keep reading »

Make It Stop: “An Old (Married!) Friend From High School Is Putting The Moves On Me On Social Media”

Make It Stop: "An Old (Married!) Friend From High School Is Putting The Moves On Me On Social Media"

I’m in a happy, committed relationship. I just reconnected with a friend from high school who has a spouse and a daughter, and although it was fun to hang out, immediately after we did so, he started flirting with me and talking about how he had feelings for me in high school. It’s clear that he still does, and that’s fine, but I don’t have any feelings for him — or anyone but my boyfriend! Now I feel like I have to avoid him, but he keeps trying to talk to me on social media. What do I do?

There’s no need to jeopardize your happy relationship over some dud’s lame attempt at a cheap ego boost. You could block him, or unfriend him, or do nothing. I love doing nothing as a response because it’s easy and free! Eventually he’ll get the hint.

You could be direct and say, “I’m not interested. Please stop,” but I don’t want to make it more dramatic than it needs to be.

As for me, depending on how comfortable with him, I’d probably make a joke out of it. Like next time you see him out and he starts chatting you up, give him some sass. Keep reading »
