Season 2 of “Girls” did not disappoint. We’ve seen divorce, new love, mental disorders, sex with a drug dealer, a journey to Staten Island with a kidnapped dog, and of course, that Q-tip scene.
Hannah dated a—gasp!—Republican, and also had a two-night stand with the super-sexy Patrick Wilson. Jessa ended her marriage with typical Jessa-flare (lots of cussing and smashing of objects), and Shoshanna is in her first serious relationship, like, ever! Keep reading »
“I never chalk up anything to the gender divide and say ‘Well, that’s just a male thing.’ I hate the conventional wisdom that men are supposedly complete pieces of shit and it’s our job as women to put up with them. Men are just as sensitive and easily victimized as women are, but there’s not as much of an infrastructure for expressing it. That drives me nuts. We’re all humans and doing human stuff. We’d have a better world if everyone had someone they could pay for talk therapy.”
– Lena Dunham sat down to answer 20 questions in the latest issue of Playboy and had some insightful things to say about men, feminism, and learning the birds and the bees. God, do I agree with her on this one — if everyone could just have access to a little therapy, even people who think they don’t need it, we’d all be better off, because we’d be addressing our shit instead of taking it out on other people — our friends, our families, the people we date, etc. When I become President, it’ll be free therapy for everyone! Hurrah! Anyway, click on to read some more choice quotes from Dunham’s Playboy interview… Keep reading »
I’m obsessed with “Girls” and of course, the euphonious line of Deborah Lippmann nail polishes inspired by them! Jessa, a color that can’t decide if it wants to be red or brown, or both. Marni, a polite pink that seems dainty but is actually quite strong. Shoshanna, a girlie lavender with a look-at-me streak of sparkle. And Hannah, a color unlike anything else out there. It’s a griege that desperately wants to be a neutral, but is too green to be anything but charmingly weird.
I wove the colors, like the character’s lives, into a nail art knit design for one of my fav real life New York girl, Marissa Stuart. Special thanks to her for hand modeling!
Get this look after the jump!

God love her, but Lena Dunham has a particular way about her. Which is why Chelsea Davison’s spot-on impersonation of Dunham auditioning for the movie “Zero Dark Thirty” is so hilarious. “You know,” says Davidson’s Dunham, “if I actually have to waterboard you, that is really going to scar me, like, emotionally.” [YouTube]
Lena Dunham is everywhere right now. So, it’s no surprise that she will be gracing the cover of the March issue of Rolling Stone. In the interview with Brian Hiatt, the “Girls” creator talks about her struggles with anxiety and OCD, her childhood fear of sex, her intravenous vitamin drips and her reaction to criticism about the show’s lack of diversity. I was able to dig up a few quotes from the piece before it drops. If these quotes are any indication, the interview should prove to be a provocative one. Check them out after the jump. Keep reading »
Namely that it’s really not so unrealistic that a guy as hot as Patrick would sleep with a woman with a muffin top like Hannah/Lena Dunham, because Patrick does her (with her size 10 muffin top body) all the time. Suck it, haters. [Twitter via The Gloss]
