This Successful 22-Year-Old College Graduate Kind Of Wishes She Could Just Be Poor

Here’s a comforting thought: while our planet threatens to transmogrify into an Easy Bake oven, the world economy teeters on the edge of collapse, and Scientology is permitted to exist as a viable religion and way of life, there’s a 22-year-old out there who’s bummed out because she’s never been poor. Taylor Cotter, a 2012… More »

Snooki: No.

A Surprise Wedding On The Season Finale Of “Girls”!

Spoiler alert! I am not going to tell you who got married — you’ll have to watch the video to find out — but I am going to say that I am excited about what the marriage means for the sexy quotient in “Girls” second season. As for the season finale of what has been,… More »


Lena Dunham On Her Fears, Her Dog’s Penis

“My biggest nightmare is that I do something where [HBO would] be like, ‘That’s why you don’t give shows to 25-year-old girls.’ I’m always afraid that I’m being unprofessional, yet I continue to sign all my e-mails ‘xoxo.’ All my freakouts have been pretty private and directed at family pets and/or people I have been… More »

11 Golden Shower Moments In Pop Culture (NSFWish)

Golden showers, also known as urolagnia, urophilia or watersports, is a sexual fetish where one derives pleasure from the practice of peeing on another person. If you had never participated in or witnessed a golden shower before, that changed with the most recent episode of “Girls,” where Hannah’s boyfriend Adam pees on her in the… More »


Debate This: Would You Laugh Or Get Mad If Your BF Peed On You In The Shower?

After watching the most recent episode of “Girls,” I came to a rather interesting conclusion. I think the world can safely be divided up into two types of people: 1) People who would laugh if their significant other peed on them (on purpose, as a surprise) in the shower and 2) people who would be… More »


Face-Off: “Mad Men”‘s Peggy Olson & “Girls”‘ Hannah Horvath Are Kind Of The Same Person

Okay, before you tell me I am totally reaching with this one, hear me out. The other day, after watching this week’s episodes of “Mad Men” and “Girls,” I was trolling Tumblr when I came across a post by Jenny Deluxe (who happens to write for The New York Times, so she obvs has a… More »


Debunking Our Weird Personal Mythologies

In the most recent episode of “Girls,” Hannah and Marnie have an exchange where Hannah calls herself a loser. Marnie doesn’t let it slip, she challenges her by telling her it’s some “weird mythology” she has about herself, kind of like the idea “that you need to get 11 hours of sleep every night.”

Watch All The Awesome Sunday Night TV In One 2-Minute Clip

Between “Game of Thrones,” “Mad Men,” “Girls,” “Veep” and all the rest, it’s impossible to watch all the good TV that airs on Sunday night. (I’d also include “Long Island Medium” in that, but nobody asked.) That’s why the folks at Jest.com made this television mash-up which incorporates characters from all your fave Sunday night… More »


Lena Dunham Threw Herself A Spinning Birthday Party, Clearly Hates Her Friends

I guess Lady Juggernaut and “Girls” creator Lena Dunham had a birthday last week, and to celebrate she decided to throw herself a birthday party. At spin class. Yes, that’s right, Dunham invited her friends to celebrate her annual name day (as the “Game of Thrones” folk call it) by making them get together and… More »


Even “Girls” Star Zosia Mamet Agrees Dating In Your 20s Sucks

“Ninety percent of the time when I go on dates, I’m by myself thinking, I could be reading my book instead,” Zosia Mamet, who plays the naive one on “Girls” (and the lesbian-ish one on “Mad Men”), said last week on “Conan.” Oh, honey. We know. We have been there. Oh, have we been there. The… More »


Lena Dunham Explains The Lack Of Diversity In The “Girls” Cast

“Something I wanted to avoid was tokenism in casting. If I had one of the four girls, if, for example, she was African-American, I feel like — not that the experience of an African-American girl and a white girl are drastically different, but there has to be specificity to that experience [that] I wasn’t able… More »


Hannah Tells Adam What She Wants On “Girls”

I’m happy to report that despite the early backlash, “Girls” just keeps getting better and better. Last night’s episode started with Hannah being texted a photo of Adam’s penis — only to have him text her again to apologize … because it wasn’t meant for her. Then, at her new job, Hannah is expected to… More »


The Soapbox: Can TV Spare Some Change? A Token Negro, Perhaps?

I have never watched HBO’s new show “Girls.”  Not because I don’t want to — I’m actually excited to see a new female-centered TV show that allows actresses to play rich and diverse characters.  But unfortunately, the current role I play in real life, that of a struggling comic/actress, does not afford me the opportunity… More »


The “Girls” Girls Share Their Baggage

Last night’s episode of “Girls” was, I think, the strongest of the series so far, with — SPOILER ALERT! — Hannah (Lena Dunham) both finding out that she has HPV and that her ex-boyfriend is gay. Meanwhile, Marnie (Allison Williams) was tempted by Jorma Taccone’s artist character, Booth Jonathan, who told her,  “I want you to… More »


While Everyone Was Freaking Out About “Girls,” There Are Zero Films By Women At Cannes

For the past week, women’s media has pretty much been dominated by talk of Lena Dunham’s new show “Girls.” But newsflash! There’s other crap going on! Like the fact that this year’s prestigious Cannes Film Festival features absolutely zero films by women. That’s right: of the 23 films up for Cannes’ Very Important Palm D’OrMore »


Judd Apatow Responds To “Girls” Brou-Ha-Ha

“When we made [“Girls”]t, we always knew that it was a show you should fight about. It was built to be a show that you’d have to defend or argue about — for some people, it would make them angry — and we go over that terrain for the course of the 10 episodes. So hopefully people… More »


I Have An Idea: Lena Dunham & Danny McBride Should Switch Shows

The “Girls” premiere on Sunday night left me underwhelmed. I lived in New York City in my 20s and I expected to relate to the show. But I didn’t. Not by a long shot. Hannah Horvath (Lena Dunham) whined and pouted her way through the episode, balking at the idea of weaning herself off her… More »
