Is Lena Dunham Engaged?

  • At a Sundance event, Lena Dunham referred to Rachel Antonoff, the sister of her boyfriend Jack Antonoff, as her sister-in-law. She “kindly refused” to elaborate on the subject to reporters. She’s also been spotted wearing a suspicious ring. She’s said in the past that she and Jack don’t plan to marry until same-sex marriage is legal across the US. I can totally picture someone referring to an SO’s sibling as an in-law without meaning it in a literal sense, so I’m guessing that’s all this is. [Page Six]
  • A domestic violence PSA will air during the Super Bowl, featuring a woman pretending to order pizza while talking to a 911 operator in hopes that authorities will pick up on the fact that she needs help. The NFL claims it hasn’t lost any sponsors in the aftermath of Ray Rice’s attack on then-fiance Janay, which is a grim reminder of where national priorities lay. [People]

Duggars Wouldn’t Let Adult Midwife Daughter Be “Exposed” To Unmarried Pregnant Cousin

If there is anything we know about the Duggars, other than the fact that they are not so fond of the gays, it’s that they are way into giving birth. As members of the “Quiverfull Movement” they basically believe that women are supposed to spend their lives having as many babies as humanly possible, so that said babies can the arrows in god’s “quiver” and fight all of the heathens, or something.

However, their enthusiasm for getting knocked up extends only to married women, because I guess god doesn’t want any bastard arrows or something. Two years ago, when Jim Bob’s sister-in-law Anna Duggar’s younger sister Susanna Keller (got that?) got pregnant without being married, they wanted nothing to do with her. Keep reading »

My Teenage Self Is Far Too Invested In This Blink-182 Drama

Because I have all the maturity of a teenage boy, when news broke (insofar as news can “break” about a band far past its prime, anyways) yesterday that all was not well in the Blink-182 universe, I put my Vans on and strapped in for some quality Warped Tour gossip, and girl let me tell you, it DID.

Just In: The Cast Of The All-Female “Ghostbusters” Movie Is So Perfect

Just In: The Cast Of The All-Female "Ghostbusters" Movie Is So Perfect

Who ya gonna call? Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, it seems! These four hilarious women are your next Ghostbusters. Negotiations are ongoing, but The Hollywood Reporter says the cast is all but a lock for the Paul Feig-directed reboot of the popular ’80s movie franchise. Normally I’m wary of reboots, but I love the gender-flipping twist and, I’m sorry, but every single one of these hysterical women have brought me to the brink of pissing my pants. I can only imagine I’ll need to wear an adult diaper when I see the movie opening night. [THR]
