No wonder Laura Dern was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actress in “Enlightened.” Her crying scenes are absolutely epic. Laura’s cry face even earned its own Facebook fan page. I mean, she’s also a great actress, but she should be especially lauded for her crying abilities. Click through to see some more of the top cries we witnessed on TV this year. [ONTD]

My favorite sketch from this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” was definitely the one in which, one by one, a team of coworkers admits that when they need a good cry, they put on Adele’s “Someone Like You.” It’s true — I don’t think I can think of another song that makes my eyes moisten so quickly. I even lip-sync emphatically; it’s soothing. I especially like the quick shout out to “Friday Night Lights” — I still need the occasional cry when I think about Coach and Tami Taylor no longer being on TV. Sniff … sniff … Time to open iTunes and put on some Adele.

The wound may still be too fresh for Jennifer Lopez to “take a trip down memory lane” as she called it. This weekend, during a show at a Connecticut Mohegan Sun, J. Lo broke down onstage. “I’m going to sing you the last song I wrote about love … A lot has changed since then,” she told the crowd. As she sang “Until It Beats No More,” she was accompanied by a look-a-like who danced with men resembling Diddy, Cris Judd, Ben Affleck, and finally, her soon-to-be ex-husband, Marc Anthony. It proved to be too much for her to handle; she burst out into tears as the crowd applauded. Yeah, way too soon. I understand the impulse to turn pain into art, but that requires some distance. Until then, keep rocking those catsuits.  [USA Today]

Condoleezza Rice Tells Dick Cheney To STFU About Crying

“It certainly doesn’t sound like me, now, does it? I would never — I don’t remember coming to the vice president tearfully about anything in the entire eight years that I knew him.”

— Ex-Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice politely suggested that ex-VP Dick Cheney STFU after writing in his memoir that she once “tearfully” came into his office upset about work. Cheney wrote about the incident in his new memoir, which is kinda douchey. I have to agree that Condi does not seem like the type to cry at work. Not that there is anything wrong with that if she was! [Reuters] Keep reading »

Sex Fail: He Cried In Bed

When I met Eric* at a friend’s birthday party, my first thought was that he was a man’s man. He was a six-foot-tall, broad shouldered carpenter from the Bronx with bulging arms covered in a myriad of swirling tattoos that strained the sleeves of his polo shirt. He caught me staring more than once. At my flirtatious request, he lifted his sleeve and showed me his ink. Keep reading »

Penelope Trunk Says Startups Shouldn’t Hire Women Because We’re Too Emotional

Technology startups should not hire women because their crying jags and fit-throwing at the office is too much of a distraction, according to Brazen Careerist and business writer Penelope Trunk, writing for business site BNET.com. Oh, you know us ladies and our hormones. It’s a wonder we get anything done when we’re weeping all the time.

Drawing on examples from her own life, Trunk argues that “diversity” may be an ideal that businesses in general strive for — studies have shown that a diversity of opinions and ideas is very healthy for a company — but that startups are so pressurized and intense that less diversity makes things run more smoothly. Since a hell of a lot of startups are run by men, Trunk advises the guys not to bring women on board because they will be “emotional” and “difficult.” Keep reading »
