Introducing: The Lifetime Television For Women Movie Club


If I believed in guilty pleasures, I’d say that watching Lifetime movies is one of my deepest guilty pleasures. But since I don’t believe you should feel guilty about one of the greatest things in the world, I’m just going to say I really, really like these movies. Lifetime’s films fall into two basic tropes: 1.) a persecuted woman haunted by her past, her ex, or some other weird abusive dude who wants to murder her, or 2.) a quirky tale about a woman who overcomes some obstacle to find romance and true love. This Sunday, the network premiers “Marry Me,” starring Lucy Lui, which they’ve helpfully described as “three fiances, one fiasco. Who will she choose?” Told over two nights, “Marry Me” seems to fall into the wacky romance category. Join me in watching the movie and we’ll have a post-”Marry Me” wrap-up next week! If you can’t catch the television screening, you can watch it on Hulu. “Marry Me,” on Lifetime, Sunday, December 12 at 9 p.m. (EST). [Lifetime] Keep reading »

Don’t Mess With Bill Compton

While I think we’d all love to be Bill’s bitch, there’s a perfectly good explanation for these tees.“True Blood” studs Stephen Moyer and Alexander Skarsgard just competed against each other in the Battle Of The Fangs, a fundraiser for Gulf Aid and SOS Children’s Villages. Together they raised $70K, yay! But Team Bill edged out Team Eric by a mere $892. So, Alex’s T-shirt got made because he wound up on the bottom, er, losing the bet. FYI: Moyer’s T says “I Like My Bitches Blonde.” Ha! Anyway, boys, I have an idea. Next time, how about you go shirtless for charity? [L.A. Rag Mag] Keep reading »

Bradley Cooper Shills A Wonder Pill That Will Improve Your Life 200 Percent

In this video, Bradley Cooper tries to get you to buy a pill to make you, well, awesomer. “Before, I was unmotivated, unhirable, and undatable. I was a complete and utter mess,” he says. “And then I discovered NZT and my life changed.” OK, fine, Bradley isn’t really trying to sell you this—it’s for his new movie, “Limitless,” in which he stars alongside Robert De Niro and Abbie Cornish. I appreciate the authenticity of the spoof, from the background music to the random shots of Bradley swimming in the ocean. Keep reading »

Taylor Momsen Touches On Touching Yourself

“I’m a promoter of masturbation. Don’t sleep around—learn yourself first! Guys do, but girls don’t. And that’s why girls have so many bad experiences. But you can know your body, know yourself, know what feels good. You don’t have to give yourself away just to have sexual relevance. Because I don’t think sex is something people should be afraid of. It’s part of human nature, so I don’t think it should be so shameful—particularly for girls and young girls.”

Taylor Momsen, 17, quite eloquently, I think, sings the praises of self-love. [The Guardian U.K.] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: My Real-Life “Four Christmases”

Like a lot of people, seeing the month of December flip over on the calendar every year brings on both excitement and dread for the remaining days of the year. Presents, parties, merry-making, decorating trees: pros. Spending hundreds of dollars I don’t have, the inevitable cookie- and cheese platter-induced weight gain, and a to-do list that doesn’t end until January: cons. But the biggest challenge of the holidays for me, as a person with divorced parents, always has been choosing where to spend them. And now that I’m married to a guy with divorced parents, too, it’s getting even trickier. We have four sets of parents, but, of course, there’s only one Christmas Day. Keep reading »
