I Was In The Psych Ward

In a group, they all laughed. It didn’t take much to make them laugh, and once they started, it escalated within minutes, growing more out of control, as if they were trying to outdo each other in their maniacal hysterics.

I lay on my right side, staring at the gray wall in front of me and listening to them cackle and howl, their voices echoing through the day room. Even in the throes of my breakdown I knew the difference between them and me — I was depressed; they were insane. Read more Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: “The Social Network” Stars Facebook Geniuses, Trophy Girlfriends

  • Women in “The Social Network” (i.e., the Facebook movie) are not computer programmers, silly! They are just trophy girlfriends. In real life, however, Mark Zuckerberg’s right-hand man is a … woman. Or maybe that’s the “fiction” part? [Salon.com]

Jan Brady Gives Dating Advice

Eve Plumb, better known to the world as Jan Brady from “The Brady Bunch,” is starring in a new off-Broadway show, “Miss Abigail’s Guide to Dating, Mating & Marriage,” where she plays an advice columnist. To promote it, Eve gave some of her own dating tips in The New York Post. I’d happily take advice from the forgotten middle sister. Because Marcia got more guys and Cindy was a cutie with a lisp, Jan had to be more strategic about getting male attention. My favorite nuggets of wisdom from Jan Brady, after the jump!

Wonder Woman Is Coming Back, Beyatch!


I watched re-runs on CBS, I owned the underoos, and I had a fake phone booth in my bedroom where I impersonated voices. That’s why I was beyond nostalgic to hear that David E. Kelly (of “Ally McBeal” fame) is working on a television version of “Wonder Woman” for Warner Bros. It’s crucial that he finds the right actress to play Diana Prince/Wonder Woman.

After the jump, our casting suggestions for the new Wonder Woman. Keep reading »
