The “Sweet Valley High” Girls In 2010

Twins Brittany (right) and Cynthia (left) Daniel played Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield, respectively, on the television show “Sweet Valley High,” which ran from 1994 to 1997. Jessica and Elizabeth were the quintessential California good girls and Brittany and Cynthia definitely played the parts well. These days, the twins have their own uniquely defined styles. Cynthia is more glam, while Brittany, who is dating director Keenen Ivory Wayans, is punkier. Check out her cropped cut, ear project, and tattoos. [L.A., 11/9/10] Keep reading »

Attorney General Fired After Harassing Gay Student

Well, it’s about time: Assistant Attorney General Andrew Shirvelll, who admitted to harassing the openly gay student president of the Michigan Student Assembly, was fired this past week. His boss, Attorney General Mike Cox, said he fired Shirvell after discovering he was using state resources in an inappropriate way.

Cox initially defended Shirvell, on First Amendment grounds. And in a statement after firing Shirvell, Cox reiterated his stance. “To be clear, I refuse to fire anyone for exercising their First Amendment rights, regardless of how popular or unpopular their positions might be,” said Cox. “However, Shirvell repeatedly violated office policies, engaged in borderline stalking behavior, and inappropriately used state resources, our investigation showed.” Keep reading »

Girl Talk: Breaking The Cycle Of Bad Parenting

We love to blame our parents for all sorts of things. It’s their fault that you’re still single. If only they hadn’t made you wear corduroys, you might not be so self-conscious today! If mom had been less hard on your schoolwork, then you might not be failing to get that promotion. And, oh Dad, why did you make me write so many thank-you notes? Now everyone mistakes my politeness for insincerity. And so on …

But if truth be known, the snippets from childhood that we blame for our adulthood failings may not be the correct ones at all. If you really want an accurate demonstration of what your parents were like as parents, then life does offer you a second chance to recapture their parenting skills. All you have to do is wait until they become grandparents. It is unlikely that their parenting skills have changed in the 20 to 40 years since they became parents, and you will be flooded with stark memories and realizations as their parenting successes and failures are revealed through the way in which they interact with your children.

Madonna Owes Everything To The Gay Community

“I know a number of people have spoken out about it but I feel like I need to say something. The gay community has been incredibly supportive of me.

Antoine Dodson, the first news-to-viral-video-to-auto-tuned-single celebrity, was a guest on George Lopez’s show the other night.
