We have a love/hate relationship with Mean Girls. In reality, we know from firsthand experience that Mean Girls can ruin a teen’s life. But when it comes to TV and film, we find Mean Girls totally entertaining and have been known to root for them. Usually, the Mean Girl in a show or movie is the most developed character. Being saccharin sweet like Serena van der Woodsen in the first season of “Gossip Girl” or Lauren Conrad throughout the run of “The Hills” is easy. But it takes work to be conniving, cunning, and misunderstood all at once. We decided to pay homage to entertainment’s best Mean Girls after the jump. Tell us in the comments which one you identify with the most! Keep reading »
Back when I was in elementary school, I got to pick out a new lunch box and book bag at the end of summer in preparation for the school year. I miss starting fresh every fall, so maybe I should start buying myself a new bag every fall to continue the tradition in a more adult way. Since we’re all falling on hard times with the craziness on Wall Street, I think I’ll pick one of these — not one of them is over $100. Keep reading »
On a last night’s episode of “The Hills,” Spencer was being his usual d-bag self, but I couldn’t believe he was so rude to Heidi’s mother that she later cried on camera. This to me is the most unthinkable sin for a boyfriend or husband to commit. I’ve never understood how a woman can date a man that doesn’t get along with her family, especially if she has a close or at least workable relationship with them.

Fancy china table setting probably haven’t entered your life yet, but that doesn’t mean you should be eating your takeout Pad Thai on a soggy paper plate. Instead, feel a little fancy when you serve yourself dinner on one of these black and white doily plates, which are made of “melamine” (a posh word for plastic).

There’s been ado about the complete and utter MILF-ish/VPILF-ish-ness of Sarah Palin. Yesterday, I was sitting and eating lunch next to a table of men, all in their 40′s, who were discussing Palin’s hotness, how she would be sexier with her hair down, and that her critics just think she’s “too pretty”. All that got me thinking about how guys feel about Palin — not just her positions on the issues, but her readiness for the job AND whether looks are playing as much of a factor in the enthusiasm for her as the market for VPILF T-shirts would lead us to believe. So I asked the guys on my IM what they think of the Vice-Presidential nominee. In defense of the seemingly liberal slant of this particular post, I really did try and discuss the topic with the lone conservative guy on my IM (aka The Prepster), but I kept getting his Away message.

Yesterday, there was hat-like hair at Christian Dior, and today there were giant wildflower bouquets atop the models’ heads at Junya Watanabe. Apparently headgear is big for spring. [Junya Watanabe fashion show; Paris Fashion Week; 9/30/2008] Keep reading »
It’s no secret that women can be incredibly competitive and catty with each other. In yesterday’s post about Mean Girls we argued that no one can bring a woman down faster and harder than another woman. Right now, a lot of us are reconnecting with our own inner Mean Girls when it comes to Sarah Palin. We mock her out, attack her, and put her down in ways only we women really can. But of course, it’s not just Sarah Palin we’ve got beef with, is it? When it comes to other women competing for the same men, the same jobs, even the same last pair of chocolate brown leather riding boots in size 7 on sale for 50% off, we are out for blood. After the jump, 12 things Mean Girls do to take down the competition… Keep reading »
For starters, you might not actually know much of anything about the model-turned-actor (turned musician!) who was once a Daily Hotness. First spotted as Cedric Diggory in the Harry Potter movies, the 22-year old is sure to be the next big thing thanks to the upcoming vampire movie “Twilight” (based on the series of novels by Stephanie Meyer), in which Pattinson plays lead vamp Edward Cullen. He’s been dubbed “the next Jude Law” by the British press, but what more is there to know about this hunk across the pond? Oh, so much. Keep reading »
