An Open Letter To Orange

Dear Orange,

I feel like you and I got off on the wrong foot. Or, at least we would have, if you had feet. You’re just a color so that wasn’t really the correct phrase to use. But here’s the thing… Keep reading »

Reese Witherspoon Talks Some Sense Into The Women Of Hollywood

“How hard we are on people who are just doing their best. When we start measuring women on their appearance … We’re just too hard on each other. Women need to be more supportive of each other, stop tearing each other apart. There’s plenty of room for all of us. There’s plenty of men for all of us. There’s plenty of jobs. There’s plenty of room! I really believe it. Another actress out there has a number-one movie? They’re going to make more movies about women. A female writer sells a script? They’re going to look at another script from another woman. The better one woman does, the better all women do.”

Reese Witherspoon preaches girl power in Elle UK. Amen sister, Reese! I think this extends to other industries and facets of our lives as well. I believe jealousy amongst women holds us back from being more successful and satisfied as a gender. That kind of negativity takes up a lot of space within. It’s energy that we can be using to hold one another up. It’s so much easier to be happy for another woman’s success. Abundance, ladies, abundance. And with that, I believe my feminist statement quota for the day has been filled. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »

Sweet Jealous Vs. Crazy Jealous: A Primer

As just about any episode of “Jersey Shore” can prove, there’s nothing more poisonous to a relationship than unbridled jealousy. (*cough* Ronnie and Sammi *cough*) Nothing is quite so off-putting as the insecurity that makes you not trust someone — or makes your partner think you can’t be trusted.

But let’s be honest: sometimes a little jealousy is appreciated. It shows he cares! I thought it was totally adorable last week when the dude I’m dating confessed to a bit of seeing green. We were at a party playing air hockey when a platonic male friend/former coworker of mine walked in. I stopped air hockey for a second and greeted my buddy warmly with a hug. Later on, my dude told me he felt a little twinge of jealousy watching me hug another guy (even though he knows we’re just friends). I thought, Aww, that’s silly — but cute that he cares! Even if jealousy isn’t always rational, it can be kind of sweet.

After the jump, a primer on “sweet jealous” versus “crazy jealous” — an important distinction: Keep reading »

The Kills Slay With Their New Album

Kirstie Alley Stumbles On “Dancing With The Stars”


Last night was a cringe-worthy episode of “Dancing with the Stars.” The contestants had to dance out tales of their personal struggle. Petra Nemcova danced about surviving the tsunami in 2004. And Kirstie Alley splayed herself wide open, dancing to “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and dedicating her performance to her mom, who was hit and killed by a drunk driver in 1980, right before her acting career took off. So it made it even sadder when, a short moment into their performance, Kirstie dipped into her partner Maksim Chmerkovsky and they both tumbled to the ground after a slide. They got back up, but Maksim took a few seconds and winced pretty dramatically before the two started dancing again. Luckily, the judges were very forgiving. [TV Squad] Keep reading »
