“I don’t think we would have done the Dave and Penny thing. Our show is not at all a soap opera. Some of these other comedies are able to go a little more melodramatic than I ever liked, and any time we tried to do it, sometimes it felt a little false. I don’t think anyone really wanted to see Dave have to date his ex-fiancée’s best friend. There’s just something about that that’s kind of mean. I didn’t want to have to have Penny and Alex hate each other for five episodes.”
– David Caspe, creator of my favorite sitcom that barely got a damn chance, “Happy Endings,” discussed a few unresolved plot points in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that I just had to share. In addition to putting an end to speculation about the future of Dave and Penny’s flirtations, Caspe also revealed that Jane and Brad were going to have a baby. Can you imagine Jane as a new mom?!?! Siiiiiiigh. “Happy Endings,” you were taken from us much too soon. [EW]
“Happy Endings” is a show that’s so good, so hilarious, and so heartfelt, that a few weeks ago when my brother sent me a text that said, “Happy Endings might get canceled,” I thought it was a joke, like the weekly texts he sends me to inform me of Gary Busey’s untimely death. “Yeah riiiiiiight!” I replied, unable to comprehend how a show this good didn’t have a rabid fanbase of 400 million viewers (God, when did I get so naive?). Then I looked online, and found out he wasn’t joking: “Happy Endings” doesn’t have super low ratings, but they’re not great either. And ABC just moved it to Friday nights, which often proves to be the death rattle for shows on the cusp of cancellation. I. Am. Terrified. So here’s the deal: if you’re not watching “Happy Endings” yet, I need you to start watching it right now. And then I need you to forward this to all your friends. And here are 10 reasons why… Keep reading »
So, a couple weeks ago I was watching the TV show “Happy Endings” (which, if you’re not watching it yet, please stay tuned for my vaguely threatening 10,000 word essay about why you should be), and the super stylish character Jane made a brief appearance in a cobalt blue toggle coat. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was my coat soulmate. I had to have it. After an hour of frantic Googling, I randomly found it on the Victoria’s Secret website (victory!), but it was sold out in my size (tragedy!). Unable to accept the reality that my dream coat was gone, I called their customer service hotline and told them my sob story. Guess what? They had one left in the whole country, in my size, for half price. Bought it. Boom. Best day of my life.
Since Amelia also acquired her dream coat after seeing it in a movie and obsessively tracking it down online, we thought we’d join forces and offer our best tips for others who are attempting to hunt down coats/dresses/shoes/jewelry/whatever from movie and TV wardrobes. Your quest will require patience, diligence, and a shit ton of Googling. Ready to get started? Check our step-by-step guide, after the jump! Keep reading »
Do you guys watch “Happy Endings”? My boyfriend forced me to watch an episode a while back and now I’m officially hooked. Every character on the show is impeccably styled, but the group’s perfectionist control freak Jane Kerkovich-Williams always looks so freakin’ fabulous. Her aesthetic is very professional and preppy, with attention to accessories and details: her nail polish colors are always ah-mah-zing, and you’ll never see her without a belt defining her waistline. Want to snag this chic Jane outfit for yourself? Get all the shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »
Jennifer Love Hewitt has gotten a lot more saucy since she took on the role of a call girl in “The Client List.” The actress appeared on “Conan” last night and had an in depth discussion with the redheaded host about “happy endings” given at the end of massages. Educational! And after the jump, J.Lo.Hew once again discusses the state of her fancy ladyparts, taking credit for coining the term “vajazzle.” Now, I know that Jen was one of the first celebs to talk about getting little crystals pasted to her hoo-ha, but I don’t really think she’s responsible for the term. I smell a lawsuit. [Team Coco] Keep reading »
Chances are you’ve heard the story: an unmarked door leads to a dimly-lit massage parlor where women with strong hands and tolerant smiles await a train of libidinous male patrons. The “happy ending” tale is all too common, a mixture of truth and urban legend that captivates male imaginations even in an age of casual sex and unlimited Internet porn. Keep reading »
