8 People Who Should Have Their Own Talk Show Instead Of Fran Drescher

We were shocked and awed to learn that comedienne Fran Drescher will be launching her own hour-long talk show on Fox after Thanksgiving. It’s not that Fran’s not funny (I mean, what’s not to love about “The Nanny”?) — and her story of beating uterine cancer is inspiring. But, really, who wants to listen to Drescher’s nasal tone and snorty laugh for an hour?

We would like to appeal to Fox’s head honchos to please not make this a reality. Instead, after the jump, we offer 8 other potential talk show hosts who are less nasal and more crazy than Fran. Keep reading »

NYC Considers Making “Crisis Pregnancy Centers” Come Clean About Anti-Choice Stance

At some point in your life, you’ve probably seen a billboard which said something like “Pregnant? Scared? Call us!” You may have thought nothing of it, because you weren’t pregnant or even sexually active yet. In New York City, home to over 8 million people, signs like these depict a young, concerned-looking women under the words “Free abortion alternatives.” They advertise the 12 various E.M.C. FrontLine Pregnancy Centers around the city which are “crisis pregnancy centers”; the city also has four other CPCs.

Indeed, they offer “abortion alternatives,” if you could even call them that. “Crisis pregnancy centers” are actually anti-abortion organizations, often run by pro-life groups, and do not actually provide a full range of reproductive health services for women. They sometimes offer sonograms for pregnant women. However, they are not necessarily staffed by licensed medical professionals and do not provide family planning (like birth control pills) or referrals for abortions. Keep reading »

Style Stealer: Ruffle Detail Red Coat

Both Kristin Cavallari and AnnaLynne McCord are rocking this bright-red Old Navy jacket in their own way. Bill Blass and our very own Winona are huge proponents of red and these two celebs show how amazingly one piece can be dressed for a night out or kept casual with slim trousers and ballet flats. The reason this coat works both ways — the ruffle and black button details, which elevate the coat from “OK” to “incredible.” Get your very own, for a very affordable price.

10 Logo Redesign Fails

I don’t necessarily love change. I’m still not over the fact that Carly on “General Hospital” has been played by four actresses, as if I wouldn’t notice a difference. When I’m handed something non-fat and assured, “You won’t taste the difference,” I sure as hell do. I like things the way I like ‘em, which is why I’m happy that Gap decided to scrap its plans to use the logo on the right as its new branding. I cosign what Annika said in her blog post on the subject: “Maybe Gap should put more effort into designing fresh clothes, rather than a logo, and it won’t have to remake its image to drum up sales.” Zing!

Gap was wise to listen to internet outrage and go back to the drawing board. Even though my feedback is a little late, I hope these other companies that have attempted logo redesigns will hear me out.

Online Dating Site Thinks We’re ALL Cougars

“I’m a cougar. She’s a cougar. We’re all cougars!” Really? All of us are cougars? When did cougars (who, by the way, don’t look a day over 25 in this commercial) take over the online dating scene? CougarLife.com is exactly what’s wrong with the term “cougar.” Too bad I’m going to be singing this stupid song all day. Help! [The Daily What] Keep reading »
